Asteroid Belt

Post #1by Croc » 24.08.2016, 16:03

In addition there are add-on Asteroid Belt. He's the screenshot:

Image

Yellow line - is the average diameter of the orbit of Jupiter.
The length of 1-4 equal a the length 1-5, hence the mean radius of the orbit of Jupiter (5.46 + 4.95) / 2 = 5.2 AU
Borders Asteroid Belt located between points 2 and 3.
The geometrical dimensions of the screen on my monitor:
length 1-4 = 122 mm
length 1-2 = 52mm
length 1-3 = 64 mm

The inner boundary of the asteroid belts of 5.2 AU / 122 x 52 = 2.22 AU
The outer boundary of the asteroid belt 5.2 AU / 122 x 64 = 2.73 AU

These dimensions of the asteroid belt is not consistent with the screenshot orbits the main asteroid belt.
Here is the asteroids orbit in the inner boundary and the outer boundary of the asteroid belt:

Image

The geometrical dimensions of the screen on my monitor:
length 1-4 = 122 mm
length 1-2' = 45 mm
length 1-3' = 85 mm

The inner boundary of the asteroid belts of 5.2 AU / 122 x 45 = 1,92 AU
The outer boundary of the asteroid belt 5.2 AU / 122 x 85 = 3.62 AU

Taking into account the Revised dimensions going to upgrade the model Asteroid Belt.

Now updated model combine with real asteroids from the Collection 3100 asteroids and addon Jupiter Trojans (asteroids 1537).
Real asteroids visualized as orange dots:

Looks good, how about including the Hilda-Groug asteroids? If Trojans are possible they should not provide any trouble.

I did not find the addon with the Hilda-Groug asteroids. I'll be glad if someone points out a reference to similar addon.

So where did you get the trojans anyway? It also would be more realistic if the belt was thicker if that's possible. Similar to the Kuiper belt addon...

Addon Jupiter Trojans (asteroids 1537) in this place. Author Selden Ball.
I modified ssc-file!

Ah so you are using actual trojans and not a random rendition as with the asteroid belt! Now I understand...
