[nbos] [AS] I know what I want an orbit to look like...

...so how do I get there? :)

Example: If I want a planet's perihelion to be 0.01 AU every 200 days and aphelion 3 AU, how can I play with the planet data to get this? I've only ever used AS2 for galactic maps, never touched the planetary bits until now.

For what it's worth, I'm looking at modeling a system for sci-fi fiction purposes. Neutron star with stellar companion in a decently wide orbit, planet weaving in and out of them often enough that every X centuries the exotic life which lives there goes into hibernation to survive.

So yeah, eccentric orbits FTW. Help! :D

Thanks all!
