    Request RAGTAG FLEET

    I am working on a BSG related 3D rendering project and there are certain ships that I need. Sadly, the Coxxon models are no longer available as far as I can tell. If anybody still has the RagTag Fleet ships, I can convert the models from those files. What I need: Botanical Cruiser Flattop...

    The exact speed of light

    Game of Thrones challenge

    Ok, here's the deal. I've been reading (and watching) the "game of thrones" series, and the first thing that came to mind was "WTF kind of orbit does this planet have to have the sort of seasonal cycle it does!?" Is it within our ability here to try and figure out what kind of orbit this...

    Orbiter wish list

    This is a place to post all those cool things that you would like to see in a future release of orbiter. No, I'm not asking for any of these things to become a reality, just kind of fanticising :) Permanent orulex style terrain with standardized hightmaps at least for the moon and mars, and...

    Scenario Scenario keeps crashing

    Base Olympus Base ancient alien outpost enhancement

    I only ask because I am not a programmer, nor an artist. Could somebody (in your spare time) please make an Olympus Base enhancement that turns Olympus Base into an abandoned and dilapidated ancient alien outpost? Why else would it be there for missions in the early/mid 21st century unless it...

    How do I add an XPDR transmitter to a ship? The James Cook does not have one which makes rendezvous with it somewhat of a pain in the ass; especially when the rendezvous takes place on the night side of a planet. I've tried going into my scenario file and simply adding the XPDR line there...
