I believe someone wanted a list of some calculator programs we use to help us do stuff in orbiter. Most are development related so that's why I'm posting here. If anyone has any other programs, just post below!
Comments are annotated as //comment don't include that in your code.
-> Means "store to" a variable the sto key on the calculator.

I remade my popular DG4 to ISS video tutorial which covers an entire flight from launch to docking at the ISS using the scenario:

Important information for addon developers:
From the next version, the Orbiter executable and its associated libraries will be compiled with MS VS2005. This means that addons linking to the orbiter library will need to be compiled with a compatible compiler. Specifically, backward compatibility with MS VC++6 is not guaranteed. If you are still... 18 Comments

This is a list of the most common file types in Orbiter and their uses.
In the Config folder:.cfg: A config file, these can contain information relating directly to a vessel, base or planet.
A base cfg has ALL the required information to construct the base in the simulation. They are contained in the NameofPlanet/Base folder.
A planet... 8 Comments
I thought it would be nice to have a thread full of resources (tutorials, examples, tools, etc..) that orbiter users could use to become add-on developers, or they could be of some use to existing add-on developers. I'll start:
