Sorry if this doesn't belong in the AT forums, I just think it sounds advanced

I would like to know how to do an elliptical orbit for a circular object orbiting around another object.

# NickyNouse

If the ellipse can be stretched only on the x or y axis, try:

If you need something more complicated than that, you could try looking up “parametric equation of an ellipse,” although I'm sure I've seen some orbit projects around here and you could probably steal the code from there.

forever

set [i v] to [1]

repeat (360)

go to x:((center-x) + ((x-radius) * ([cos v] of (i)))) y:((center-y) + ((y-radius) * ([sin v] of (i))))

change [i v] by (1)

end

end

Okay, I'll test it out soon. If the ellipse can be stretched only on the x or y axis, try:forever

set [i v] to [1]

repeat (360)

go to x:((center-x) + ((x-radius) * ([cos v] of (i)))) y:((center-y) + ((y-radius) * ([sin v] of (i))))

change [i v] by (1)

end

end

(Literally a 2 minute hack to remix)

I won't be on the computer again for about 14 hours.If you need something more complicated than that, you could try looking up “parametric equation of an ellipse,” although I'm sure I've seen some orbit projects around here and you could probably steal the code from there.

# Layzej

Here's one that lets you change the orbit parameters mid-orbit: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/56143060/

(Is this still relevant?)
