Hi all,

Are there any add-ons, or maybe plans to develop in core, of visual orbit planning tools such as the ones in KSP, or Juno?

I'm talking about the planned burn tools with the UI interface where your planned orbit is displayed in real-time 3D as you tweak the burn parameters. Of course, one can use the various incarnations of MFDs such as TransX, and they work just fine (I want to make sure nobody will think I'm diminishing Orbiter in any way here), but I was pleasantly surprised when I saw how the other sims have those "for dummies" UI tools (for people just like me :ROFLMAO: ).

Cheers

As far as I'm aware, no such tool exit for Orbiter. The closest would be Videnie's Orbit Drawing addon, but it only exist for Orbiter 2010, I think.

I'm afraid you'll have to do it the good old ways. Don't worry, after eleven years using the sim, I still haven't mastered transfers to other bodies myself, even the Moon! :p

(Also, hello from a fellow Quebecker! :D)

This is the status of the most "Videnie like" addon for O2016
