Seems the gravitational constant used in game is different than in real life. Is this correct or am I missing something?

Game: 6.67384E-11
Real Life: 6.67408E-11

    Touché @zeropol. It’s not causing problems in programming since I’m using the one the game assumes. More of a casual query. Thanks!

    6.67384 can be rounded up to
    6.6740

    Is the difference causing trouble in your program ?

    Edit :according to wikipedia, the value is not known, and the precision of the measure increase with our "tools".
    The accepted value in 2010 was "6.67384E-11"m3⋅kg−1⋅s−2, exactly the one of the game.
