yes but if you create a T or L class star, SE produces a star that irradiates an annoying REEED light even if you change luminosity, temperature parameters.. and still, even if you change those parameters, nothing significant happens to the planets.. wacko

I think that these calculations could be done in real time; a planet's temperature and class would dynamically change as it orbits a star. In systems with 2 or more stars the calculations could be done based on the distance from both of them.

So, you could accelerate time and watch the temperature change gradually. It probably wouldn't take that much work to implement into SE and the calculations aren't that complex.

I'm not suggesting simulating seasons and changing the texture of the planet, just for the listed temperature to change.

You might even have two properties listed: The current temperature, and the an average temperature, but the latter may be difficult to figure out for a planet in a system with multiple stars.

Oh... wait... never mind...

EDIT: I'm loosing track of SE's features. There's so many in each new version.

Except that feature has existed in SE since long before you or I ever heard of it...

I can't even remember when it was put in... I just came across a system with a brown dwarf and a bright white star, where the all the planets are relatively close to the white star but still show up as cold or freezing because of their position relative to the brown dwarf. That's what triggered the "you know what space engine should have" idea inside my head. Now I'm going to have to make sure SE already has things before I suggest them.

senile

That's because it was put in before you first used SE, as I said. From your point of view it has always been there.
