    Saw a glaring error on the product label. ‘frompples’ should’ve been ‘from apples’. If that error was missed in quality, what does that say about the product?

    Project Space Transportation System 2016

    I imagine it depresses in one frame and resets the next. The brain ain’t fast enough to register that. Maybe find a real switch like that, l like a radio or TV. Time yourself pressing the switch ten times. Divide by ten to get cycle time for your finger, half that is depress cycle, the other...

    Advanced Question How to display radar and it's range in simulation

    Urwumpe’s SensorMFD? Otherwise, IMFD Find tool can point the vessel at any celestial body that is visible, then in OrbitMFD, changing the reference body will call out its range. VOR/VTOL can give you direction and...

    Space Shuttle Simulator

    It’s probably not a bad idea anyway, redundancy in case of failure of one, the other will still give plenty of air and would not result in an abort.

    Space Shuttle Simulator

    You probably wouldn’t need both fans. If you use one on the exhaust side, when it removes air, air gotta come in somewhere, so you could just provide openings where you intended, you won’t need a fan on it. People breathing even doing labor only use about 2.5 cu meters per hour (equivalent to...

    Advanced Question Local light source attenuation calculation

    Try ‘Color temperature’ at Wikipedia. It has several equations related to black body color responses by temperature including for incandescent lighting and toward the end treats more modern applications such as LED lighting. Hope that helps.

    Software NASSP Apollo 8 CTD Issue

    I don't run the NASSP, mainly because I'm also on a low end laptop, HD mostly full, but I have a second monitor, but on different format (4×3), than the main screen(16×9). If I have it plugged in before I start Orbiter_ng, everything works OK, including other apps and stuff on the second...

    News USS Johnston: Sub dives to deepest-known shipwreck

    I’ve seen that in many deep sea videos. There’s always little bits of stuff floating about. Maybe small critters, maybe small bits of plant and other material from above, some could be bits of plastic and other stuff we put there. What’s living down there is the cleanup crew for the oceans. Like...

    New update about my progress.

    Landing on an airless world isn't that difficult at all, but consider PursuitMFD and HoverMFD. I've used Pursuit and am working with Hover getting the hang of it. Both are pretty slick. Both are available at OrbitHangar.

    Obiter vs Reentry

    The best part of Orbiter are the folks involved here not just running the sims, many of the folks you speak with here made this stuff up, and it is rocket science! Even the most basic questions are happily answered by the authors of everything here. And they are made up of folks from all over...
