    It’s pronounced like ‘vah Moose’ with the accent on the moose, at least in my neck of the woods. The part that actually caught my eye was the ‘Oh crap! It’s a Thesaurus!’

    Problem Orbiter crash

    AFAIK, Orbiter doesn’t like the x86 folder, it prefers to run as C:\Orbiter. That’s where it is in mine. Actually my install is C:\OrbiterTop\Orbiter. OrbiterTop contains the download folder and the external docs folder, and others. It could contain multiple Orbiter installs, if you like.

    So, @LordCroussette , how well does that thing pitch or yaw in space?

    IMFD Surface Launch Program

    I use LaunchMFD for launching, usually manually launch and get my orientation close then hit the AP. For landing, I like HoverMFD, you can select hover, heli, or tailsitter modes, and it uses the nav/com frequencies for the base and pad, or enter any long/lat. Not sure why Pursuit doesn’t show...

    Vessel Commerical LEO destinations and other space stations

    And no windows to look out? Like living on a submarine. For power and thermal, maybe an arm from each segment inward between spokes articulating to follow the sun, solar panels on the sun side and radiators on the shade side.

    I think that’s what tinnitus is, hearing a frequency. Mine’s about 8k Hz or so, seems like square wave. There’s a site you can go to that will emit any frequency, several waveforms so you can match what you hear. My audiologist said she can tell the difference between noise related and age...

    Question Installing addons

    If only all the devs followed Martins’ instructions in his docs. I like diogom’s suggestion to copy manually, then you can put them where they belong, and catch the same file names thing.

    You would have to convert the Earth itself to fuel, and I suspect you would run out of Earth long before you got far.
