It felt kind of out of place, does temperature affect the planets' radii in the game? RS 0-4-2942-589-9085-6-61914-214 1 Scorched ice giant, really close to the binary stars it orbits. Also, if you reduce the exposure and look at the red dwarf star, look how sharp the edge of the hemisphere lit up by the brighter star is.
Yes. Extremely hot gas planets will have a much larger radius, as in reality.
Alright, so is this gradual in that the hotter the planet is, the bigger it is? Or is it for scorched ice giants only, or something along those lines?
Also, a last question, how many Earth masses is 1 Jupiter mass in this game? The mass of the 4 ice giants in the top right are measured in Jupiter mass units. I used the number given on the wikipage for Jupiter, but they still seem a little bit off on the graph.
