    ...Or any other solution to solve the problem of forgetting autopilots on when timewarping = empty tanks. It was (still is) a native option in Dansteph's OrbiterSound, but what if an Orbinaut only installs XRSound? Thanks PS: is there a...

    Scenario Bases evolving in time

    Hi all, apart from having multiple Orbiter installations with copies of a base (which sounds a bit overkill), is it possible to have a base that evolves with the passage of time? More/different buildings, launch towers, etc? Or is it already possible by editing the scn file?

    New telescope as birthday present to a 10 yo boy

    Hi gentlemen. What would you recommend, as per the title says? No previous experience, very curious. Do you have some suggestions for a decent entry-level telescope but non so entry to be too limiting. Thanks.
