Two planets nearly collide

I was just going through some stars and clicked on a random one.
It seemed pretty normal, turned on orbits and I noticed that two orbits merge at one point.
So I sped it up and holy shit, the planets almost collide.

So, SpaceEngineer, do you think there's a chance of finding planets that DO collide? It would be a pretty awesome view to be on either one of the planets watching the other get closer and closer.

Normally this would never happen. SpaceEngine doesn't support planetary collisions and unstable orbits when two planets approach each other too closely smile So the solar system generator will generate planets only on a stable orbit: it will run several tests, and if the planet doesn't pass, it gets removed from the system. Maybe you've found a bug smile Can you show a screenshot with "top view" of that system?

Sure thing.
They DON'T collide, but it gets closer than the gas giant's moon.

Edit: Wow, Donatelo. Can you get closer pictures? I'd hate to be on that planet when that happens.
Edit 2: Checked the planets out, they're not getting nearly as close as mine do.

Yea but theyre both pretty massive so theyd both pull on each other harder... Although i think that small planet in urs gets so close that it would just be pulled in bye the gas planet and collide.

Yeah, I asked this guy to do the math based on the masses, size and distance. The smaller planet should get pulled into the gas giant.

Small planets should get thrown away from solar system. This is called a planet-planet scattering, and often happens in young systems. But SE doesn't support this, so in this case it's a bug:)
