A cute little space generator I workedon for no reason, then found out the opportunity to post it here for the PROCJAM.

Names can end up offensive but that's above my power ^^

Hope you find it satisfying and relaxing as much as I do.

This is really cute. Could be fun to have little spaceships and drive them around! Did you end up just using the canvas API for drawing?

Thanks for the kind words !

Yeah it's pure canvas drawing ^^

I made a data only star system generator... is this written in JavaScript? Maybe I could merge them! (If your code is open source)

Hey ! my system isn't that much complicated, only cosinus for orbits and a simple hierarchy for the satellites.

I generate a main satellite (a star) which generates his own satellites which each other generates their own satellites and it goes on until I stop it ^^

Their datas (radius, distance, speed) depends on the radius of their "parent satellite"

What exactly does your data generator creates as property ?

PS: I'm using Javascript

You can download it here https://github.com/mdeselincourt/charliesspacegenerator - at some point I should set it up as a GitHub Page (but when I wrote it I didn't know GitHub Pages existed)

OK it only took 2 clicks and a .nojekyll haha, the generator is now at https://mdeselincourt.github.io/charliesspacegenerator/
