The following simulations are a variety of solar system simulations, with each one containing different subsets of objects (planets, moons, asteroids, comets, KBOs). These simulations all use the ICRF/J2000.0 reference frame.

The basic simulation is Solar System which contains all known objects with radii over 100km, together with all known moons and a selection of well known comets - a total over 250 objects. In practice, this is not particularly useful, because the large number of objects present can be rather confusing, and evolution of the system is slow.

The other simulations are all derived from Solar System by deleting unwanted objects and/or by combining planets with their unwanted moons. These simulations are much easier to work with, and evolve more quickly - in some cases much more quickly.
