I spend my days making web applications. I cross-train by making games. Sometimes I blog about one or both activities. Back in the day I studied flying machines.

Programming is great fun. My picture's source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x95-MROEFgk

Also, your code in its current state will not function at all due to mismatched parentheses. If you need debugging assistance, it's important to provide enough (working) code to see the process. But it's also important not to overwhelm with superfluous code. Your goal should be to provide the minimum amount of code that both works and demonstrates the issue. See sscce.org

comment Calculate Orbit Path/Ellipse given mass, velocity, and distance (2body)
It's difficult to tell what your specific question is. Your title is about drawing an orbit path, but you posted code about finding eccentricity, and you asked for the best solution for a deterministic system. You also mentioned having trouble, but not what the trouble is. Can you edit your question down to only the subject you need assistance with?

But you haven't posted any code. Are you asking for code to be written fresh, according to your description?

It sounds like you already have a plan for solving your problem, and you just need to implement it. If I'm reading that correctly, you haven't really asked a question. In any case, it might help to elaborate about what exactly you are missing from your solution (what is your question), and what kind of answer you are looking for.
