Stellar mass for the dwarf only experiencing tidal forces in the standard GEAR implementation (blue) and in the rotating reference with the Mid-v scheme (green dash) and with the It-v scheme (red dash-dot) and the It-v scheme with a low step size (green dotted). The beginning of the orbit is shown with a vertical dotted line. For the first ~1.5 Gyr, the stellar mass is basically the same with similar bursts (see Fig. A.3), beyond this, however, the Mid-v scheme flattens out, still producing stars for another ~1.5 Gyr, but at a lower rate. The drop in stellar mass at the end in the rotation schemes is due to stellar particles being deleted as they cross the boundaries. This drop is lower in the low step size due to better simulation of the dwarf core (see Fig. A.4).
