    I feel like that he looked at how the AM form was playing out before deciding to call it quits.

    General Question How do I remap vessel specific keys?

    Due to a broken num3 key I had to remmap the RCS keys to the WASD side of my keyboard. So far so good, the only problem is that in the DG I keep toggling the radiator everytime I hit the D key. Is there a way to remap vessel specific keys similar to the keymap.cfg for global keys?

    Random astropicture thread

    Unlikely, that image has been "taken" with a telescope the size of the Earth. By taken I mean radio data that was reassembled into an image over the course of years.

    Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games

    I havn't paid attention to the Olympics since Sydney(?). But I was aware that Russia cheated in big style back in the last ones and was banned. I thought maybe that individual athletes took the old Lybian downhill ski team approach. Seems like a toothless sanction if you just ban the flag and...

    Formula One Grand Prix 2021.

    Watching cars go around there is so much more enjoyable than the usual tracks, even if the race is more of the same.

    New Release Project Mercury X for Orbiter 2016

    In the attitude control manual you say the auto attitude is pitch -34°, 0° roll, 0° yaw under point 3.2. While the panel guide gives the same attitude as -34° pitch, 0° roll, 180° yaw under point 2.5. Is that a mistake in the docs or am I misunderstanding something here?

    Poll Which forum skin do you use?

    Nothing I know off, it was just a general point. Akin to fix the walls before you paint them.

    Poll Which forum skin do you use?

    As much as I want the Apollo theme back, right now we got a dark and a light theme, that is good enough for now. Other, especially broken, features on the site are higher priority imo.

    Important Orbiter Forum Migration to XenForo

    Everything seems to be working in roughly the same vein as the vB forum, I even got 3 participation trophies on login :D. If we could get the Apollo theme ported over at some point that would be grand.

    Important Orbiter Forum Migration to XenForo

    Point 6 is not a reason to change the system if everything else works. By all means if the actual underlying structure needs changing do it but change for aesthetic purposes is in my experience a waste of everyones time.

    News Technic Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey cancelled?

    I seem to recall having a Castle with a full set of Knights back in the last millennium. As well as numerous yearly catalogues with American West Cavalry sets as well as Pirates and Navy sets. Am I to take from this that bashing other people over the head with a metal stick is OK while a...

    New Release Project Mercury X for Orbiter 2016

    Slight missunderstanding, calling all three Project Mercury may have not been a great idea :), I meant the original Mercury for orbiter. That looked like this Some spotlights etc, in my mind it had some grain texture too but it's been ages since it worked so I'll put it down to my faulty memory.

    New Release Project Mercury X for Orbiter 2016

    It's very similar to the original Project Mercury's "cockpit" back in the day. That worked quite well back in the day. I'd put some texture on the backgrounds though. Gives it a bit more realistic look, less comic book.

    Near Earth Black Hole found

    Me too, I just gave the numbers so nobody had to ask. As you say the problem is that we dont have any mechanism such a small hole can from apart from decaying to the size, if they do. Even then I dont know if the timescale matches up with the age of the universe.

    Near Earth Black Hole found

    Depends on its size, lately I've seen speculation that Batygins planet 9 may be a tiny black hole. The hypothetical planet should be out at 600AU with 5 to 10 Earth masses, that would be a hole in the cm size region.

    News 2020 Formula 1 Grand Prix.

    Latest news is a start in Austria at the initially planned date, maybe a second race on Wednesday after. Local politicians are keen on that, have been even before they started lessening the lockdown measures here. I'd take it with a grain of salt and see how the case numbers evolve. At least...

    New Release Project Mercury X for Orbiter 2016

    Been ages since I've been on Orbiterhangar, so it's the first time I've seen the redesigned interface. But shouldn't the version numbers for the 2010 and the 2016 download differ? They both refer to the 2016 version.
