    MS Paint Mastah!!
    i like it so far.
    Hrm.. what with all the people using crazy tools to make maps these days, i should fire up my amiga emulator and make in one Dpaint for old times sake (my 1200 is no longer functioning, sadly. *cry*)

    Thanks General,

    The planets themselves are easy to do even in MS Paint, but getting the orbits to look right and have enough room so that the planets don't overlap each other or the other orbits is the hard part.

    Here's a time-lapse of a planet. It took about 10 minutes.

    Lil threadjack, CM did you ever user Toaster on the Amiga?

    No, no toaster for me.

    Never had the money for serious stuff at the time, I was barely able to afford the system second hand

    wormspeaker: thanks for the glimpse. yknow, I think maybe I will break out the dpaint, this won't be too different than working with paint.. (and believe it or not, i actually have legal ROMS ripped from my own machines, woah!)
