    Discussion The Nuclear SC/RAMjet (and otherwise exotic atmospheric propulsion) Adventures

    Hey everyone, I'm back with further adventures in whatever this bizarre thing is! No specific questions this time, but I am fishing for general knowledge on exotic airbreathing engines and how best to implement them. I've been beating my head against this for a few days, so figure it's a good...

I'm posting hoping for some general wisdom on how best to build Virtual Cockpits in a way that doesn't create a ton of technical debt.

    Question Orbiter Development Overview?

    I've broken into developing mods for a few games now, and so far it seems the best way to go about it is to just start a general thread and hope for the best. Most of my development experience has been with KSP, but recently I've been getting a nostalgic urge to revisit Orbiter since it was my...
