    Hardware Orbiter not recognizing GPU

    I only have the RGB emulation in my 3D device list, the GTX 770 in my new computer is not recognized, both in 100830 and the newest beta (and the good old 060929).

    German Aerospace Day 2013: Final Planes (almost)

    As you can see, long lines in front of the planes to get inside them, to long for me: Some Luftwaffe stuff. CH-53G, Tornado IDS and Eurofighter: 46+10: 30+69: A-300 F-BUAD is coming, sadly not under own power. Oldest flying Airbus plane:

    Off we go into some nice blue pla-anes...

    ...flying high into the north! Sadly, I don't have enough time to pre-fly both legs in FSX. Anyway, here's a shot: It should be easy to guess via which Airport I'll be travelling today... It was a rather quick decision to fly to Norway again this year, from Hanover to Bergen, on a ERJ-190...

    Hardware Split images to large for RAM

    I'm just trying to create a high resolution Earth texture, using the December image available here as source. A level 8 texture of the 2km/pixel version was easy. But as I'd like to create higher resolutions I have to use the 500m/pixel version. It is 86400 x 43200 pixels in size, splitted into...

    Project Gale Crater

    Still a lot of work to do, but for those who can't wait to land there, here's a mesh of MSL Curiosity's target, with a scenario of Shuttle-A standing at the targeted landing site at landing day. Around that position, vessels will stand on the surface of the mesh, so they will not sink through or...

    LUA Script based vessel: Thruster not working

    Ok, I've been trying to get this running for a hour, but somehow the Probe doesn't want me to get it working. I've created a thruster and added it to the main group. As you can see, a fueltank is also created. But when I try to ignite it, nothing is happening. I checked the number of thrusters...

    Tutorial KSC LC-39: Slat's LC39-EAFB 2006 in Orbiter 2010

    As I posted in another thread before, having beautiful Shuttle launches with Slat's pads and the default Orbiter 2010 Cape Canaveral is possible with some little changes in two config files. Ok, lets start. First you should make sure that you have Orbiter 2010 and Shuttle Fleet for Orbiter...

    Discussion Flight Visualization in Google Earth

    If you look at some of Igels and Thortons add-ons, you'll see how cool it is to see your launches in Google Earth. I thought that there needs to be a way to do it with all vessels, so I wrote a little Plugin that does this. Currently it is very simple, all trajectories are simple white paths...

    API Question PMI problem: getting three vectors into one

    This is what I did wrong, three vectors, but only one is allowed: SetPMI (_V(3.1,0,0), _V(0,3.42,-0.4), _V(0,-0.4,0.68)); How do I get the three vectors (from shipedit.exe) into the correct format for the SetPMI function? Is it just a simple calculation, like addition of the vectors?

    API Question Thruster problems

    I just ran into a problem while creating the module for my ship. When I ignite the main engine, it has no thrust, and the touchdown points seem to be deleted, causing the ship to sink. Here's the code: #define STRICT #define ORBITER_MODULE #include <orbitersdk.h> const double SHIP1_FUELMASS =...
