Hi here ! I apologize, i haven't been able to make anything serious on Orbiter since a long time. At least my question brought something interesting for others... I hope to be back in Space soon. Sorry guys ! :confused:

Anyway to find this must have ship for Orbiter 2010?, I´m unable to find it anywhere. I lost many archives and I am trying to remake my old orbiter 2010 installation. Orbiter 2016 is missing too many addons now.

Try this one, i don't remember if it works with 2010 (i stopped using it years ago) but i think so.

Hi,

Great quality addon !

Just two notes :
1. The moon rover is also great to use. But could we add some headlights (maybe, I have not seen the option) ? It could be useful while using the rover on the darkside of a terristrial planet/moon...
2. Do you plan to implement oxygen management, like in XR fleet addons ?

Warmest regards

Salut yitianetie,

Sorry I missed your post. The Rovers use Fred's GeneralVehicle module so you can use the standard GV commands. In this case you can control the lights with [CTRL] + [L].

There are no plans for oxygen management simulation but I have been working on an update with Abdullah who has thrown some coding magic at my models :) .

Good to hear work is continuing. Amazing addon.

I haven't had much time for Orbiter (at least non-NASSP Orbiter) but when I do, I'm going to do some more flights with it. Already been to Mars and back and that was fun.

Hello !
I need to say THANK YOU for this awesome addon's update. My lunar mission will start as soon as i finish this post.
One thing to ask : will it be possible to catch an astronaut somewhere ? I mean, having an astronaut as to "walk" on the visited planets ? Maybe in another addon ? Not as realistic as an Ummu, but just a character to spawn (via Scn editor or .scn file) beside the landers ? Yes, i like role-playing ! ;)

Again, thanx a lot for this work, to everyone involved. :cheers::hailprobe:
