I've figured that since both objects stay in the exact same position in each other's skies perpetually, the tides pretty much wouldn't go anywhere. Probably the only mobile tides would be the ones caused by the sun(s).Tegmine wrote:Very nice work, you two!!! Eburacum, I'm gonna guess that the world on the left of the twin worlds is the closer of the two in this shot, (am I right?) Still a very cool concept, although the tides on such worlds would be fierce beyond measure.
That's my guess, anyway.
Yes, I assume that tides on these two tidally locked worlds are minimal, although if anyone knows why this should not be I'd be very interested. I'm also working on a pair of non-tidally locked worlds (Laurel and Hardy) where the tides are quite remarkable, and so are the earthquakes.
