Planets is a 3D gravity simulation program. It allows you to create spherical bodies that can attract one another. With this you can build your own solar system, galaxy or ringed planet. This makes god games look like micromanagement.

Several features of Planets are:

* Up to 16384 planets
* Massless planets for faster calculation
* Standard functions for:
o Making a planet orbit a large planet
o Making a double star
o Adding rings to planets
* 3D glasses mode (adjustable for red/blue and red/green)
* A spaceship mode
