Hello, I am making a game demo and I purchased AstroSynth. The game takes place in a 3d Environment using XNA. I am using AS to build my stars and additional objects, then export as XML and load it in the 3d XNA space. I wish to understand the exact formula of positioning the objects in orbit in order for me to convert it to a single X,Y,Z (static) location in my game. So to build a formula of GetXYZ(Distance, Eccentricity, Inclination, Ascending Node, Periapsis, Time past, Orbital Period, Axial Tilt) --> to output a XYZ coordinate. Please help me understand this formula for me to achieve using AS as my game star editor..... tyvm, Shachar
