I'm excited about the military skins but for the life of me I can't get them to work. Where do I install them? Do I put 'SKIN [name] " in every every scenario? I know I'm missing something.

Good day dbeachy1, On 29th Jan made a small donation through paypal to Orbiter. Am I correct in assuming as it went through paypal it is that annoying mouse or anonymous. The other point is I have recently run into the OOps problem again , I have not been able to download last three things i tried for.

BTW, What did you do your satellite work in?
barrygolden wrote on francisdrake's profile.
I like the idea you did with Artemis 8 but you might put the fuel tanks in the trunk and the cupala in the nose for a heck of a view of earth rise. I worked for Space X for awhile and right next to my office was the parts for the Lunar Dragon I was hopeing to see that fly. You might look at the Dark Matter addon for cargo ideas for this Lander and the LTV for a rover.
barrygolden wrote on francisdrake's profile.
I have been working some with gattis on the LM lander and thanks for what you have added . I think the orbit should be from east to west or a polar orbit but still great to see it fly. Still a lot to do on it yet a VC and it seems in 3rd person you are looking out the back door as well as needs cargo and a rover but that will come in time
