I'm trying to simulate how planets and suns are formed. It's not very realistic in 2D, but I think it came out pretty good.

It's beautiful to look at, and if you have the patience, in a few minutes you can see planets are forming. If you are lucky there will be several planets, but mostly they collide and merge into one big planet.

There's no real-life numbers involved here, I just adjusted the numbers until it looked cool. Feel free to change the numbers or add something.

Details about the particles:
All particles have the same Attraction, Restitution and Friction.
The friction is set to Zero to make the heavier particles able to force themselves into the center of planets.

The only physical difference between the particles is the density/mass. But with more mass there will be more gravity.

There are 8 particles.
Lightest (grey): 1kg/m^2
...
Heaviest (bright yellow): 31kg/m^2
