AstroSynthesis is a Windows software for creating massive 3D space environments. Included instruments allow users to adjust physical star properties and place individual planets. The utility is oriented toward sci-fi authors, video game developers and space enthusiasts.
This application offers you tools for quickly creating randomized star clusters. There is a sophisticated placement algorithm that emulates natural distribution. Additionally, it is possible to manually reposition specific objects.
Every star has multiple attributes such as spectral type, luminosity class, temperature, mass and radius. Moreover, users can create planets with unique atmospheric and gravitational properties. Instruments for adding satellites and rings are included as well.
There is an option to quickly upload finished maps to a remote server and share the link with other people. A utility like TouchNet Browser is necessary to open the URL. The viewing interface lets you zoom in and out of the star cluster. Buttons for toggling grids, subsectors and other elements are provided.
The embedded scripting interface is intended for developing extensions using VBScript to enhance main capabilities. Users can add custom options to internal menus and create new windows.
