changelog

Xplanet is an open source graphical software written in C++ and designed to act as a solar system simulation game inspired by the Xearth game for Windows operating systems.

Xplanet renders an image of the Earth into the X11 root window of your Linux operating system, and it is capable of drawing all of the major planets and satellites. It also features eclipse shadows, multiple bodies, as well as and customizable markers and labels.

The gameplay is very similar to the Solar System Simulator application from NASA. A number of different map projections are also supported, including azimuthal, Lambert, Mercator, orthographic, Mollweide, and rectangular.

Xplanet is a platform-independent application that supports the Linux, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.
