    Smile Hey everybody, working on a fun project and looking for some people just to run ideas

    The project is in the end going to be a Solar system simulation and i plan on writing in a VB.NET windows form application. I am constantly having trouble with my project where i run into walls and become stuck there for a few days.
    It should be very similar to this

    The main difficulty is the graphical output, i feel like algorithms for planet and sun interactions will be easy for me to figure out.

    Currently i am stuck on simply animating anything really, I want to be able to click and drag in order to assign a launch velocity.
    I will attach a photo of the form below. Sorry, i linked it to my personal blog.
    If anyone is keen to be involved let me know. Thank you very much! I look forward to meeting you all!

    Update 1

    Hey guys, i have got the basics of outputting pictureboxes.
    I have a few questions.

    1. Colliding with frame edges, I am thinking of using the size of the picturboxes and their current location to check if a collision occurs.

    2. animating two picture boxes in one clock tick. my current algorithm stops animating the first picture box once the second is spawned in
    3. The best timer interval speed for my program. It seems that when i have a lower interval speed the form performs much faster, this is confusing too me, can anybdoy explain?
