Lambert MFD is a tool that can be used to plan and execute realistic rendezvous maneuvers by solving Lambert's Problem. It is based on the lua scripts I released on Orbithangar a while ago.

The main features are:

-A user interface that lets you choose the target vessel, maneuver time, arrival time, offset parameter...
-Calculating a delta-v vector for an impulsive burn.
-Multi-revolution and non-spherical gravity calculations.
-A maneuver display that helps the user to find the correct burn attitude (very much WIP).
-A maneuver autopilot that uses the main engine or the forward directed RCS engines to automatically execute a burn.

I'm getting a CTD every time I go into the maneuver page.

The log doesn't say anything either.

Which scenario/vessel are you using and do you also get a CTD if you go directly to the maneuver page after starting the MFD?

The CTD's occur with DG scenario provided with the addon. I tried it out with the DG in other scenarios and the MFD worked just fine.

On the other hand, the MFD is really good. I'm still getting used to the base time interface. The multi-revolution feature is quite useful. Though the user interface can be improved, it is good for a first version. Great job :thumbup:

Sorry indy91 but why not further develop ORBTGT MFD (with the permission of the author) instead of making another one (Lambert) from scratch?.. I might be worng here but it looks like the two MFD's are "redundant" to each other.

Well, the ORBTGT MFD is only really usable with the Shuttle Fleet and simulates the real functionality of the Space Shuttle computer, if I am correct. This MFD is a kind of byproduct of other projects and is supposed to be a more general purpose MFD. While both MFDs share the basic mechanics, I didn't want to be limited to the Shuttle. It was convenient to test it with the Shuttle Fleet though.

That said, I wouldn't be opposed to help David413 improve the ORBTGT MFD. But it isn't really the goal of this MFD to replace it.

This is a very useful tool, it has replaced years of Rendevous MFD usage. Thanks for that.

Not bad for a half abandoned project with a rather "functional" user interface :lol: I am glad you find it useful.
