I'm not a coder but the implications of just simply adding orbital mechanics into a game after you've begun adding fluff like knives and forks on planetary table tops is completely nuts. It just show how little planning has gone on.

You just don't know how game development works! Ok seriously, I doubt that it would an easy to do task anyways. *looks at flight model*
