Two examples of the evolution of planets with and without heating torque. Both planets starting at 5 AU start at an early initial time t0 = 100 kyr, while the planets starting at 15 AU start at a late initial time of t0 = 2 Myr. The small black dots indicate a time difference of 200, 400, 600, and 800 kyr from the starting time. The big black dots indicate an evolution time of 1 Myr. The planets starting early and in the inner disc only evolve for ~500 kyr total. With the fast growth rates of pebble accretion, it seems that the heating torque only has minimal effects on the final configuration of evolving planets.
