    Minecraft jailbreak anyone?

    Back in the (good old) UnrealTournament days, we had a game style called Jailbreak. Players were split into two teams and the point of the game was to imprison the other team by killing them. The enemy would then spawn inside of a jail cell. There were two ways out of the jail: Any remaining...

    Question Equatorial to relative position

    I'm having trouble turning equatorial position (longitude, latitude, altitude) into planet relative coordinates, used by the VESSELSTATUS.rpos value. I'd like to position a vessel at certain position on the planet, but I don't want it to be landed on the ground, so I can't use the vdata[0].x...

    Problem Calculating drag in Orbiter / CreateAirfoil flaw

    I've been working with Orbiter's aerodynamics and noticed what I think to be a flaw in the CreateAirfoil function. The function CreateAirfoil asks you to supply a pointer to a function calculating the lift, drag and moment coefficients, as well as the wing area. The same goes for CreateAirfoil2...

    As part of the work on OBSP, I'm working on a function capable of predicting the landing positions of bombs dropped from a plane, or shells fired from an artillery. While the equations are an extreme pain in the butt that's not the problem, the implementation seems to be. I started by making...

    TransX Retrograde sling of Jupiter

    Hi! I've been playing around with TransX lately and managed to get some places, but now I'm trying to do a slingshot around Jupiter to lose as much of my Sun-relative velocity as possible and drop down towards the Sun, with a very low perihelion. I'm guessing that when I got my close approach...
