Orbiter Galaxy searches for a colaborator

The after-release fuss is dying down, most serious troubles seem to be fixed, only one update to version 0.6 is left to finish, and that not too big either. There will probably be another update on 0.6 once a new Orulex version comes out, which will be on tuesday, for all I know.

I am pleased that Orbiter Galaxy has managed to give birth to its first offspring at such an early stage that I hope will come in handy for other add-on developers, see .

Now that everything...

...in all the empty places you must walk -Ancient egyptian blessing

Getting closer and closer to a first playable release, I felt like summarizing a few of the thoughts and expieriences I had during the now over two years of developement of Orbiter Galaxy.

It was one of my goals from the start to make the Galaxy Map as accessible as I possibly can, with a maximum of oversight. It is a thing I missed in each and every single space-sim I played. It is all nice to have...

Thinking of better thread titles

Posted 11-01-2010 at 06:26 PM by jedidia

Seriously, look at three of my four latest blog entries, and it can really make you wonder how unimaginative a man can be... But I allways sucked at naming things. I'll try to do better in the future none the less!

Anyways, as every month my connection died a rather rapid death after the twentieth, with the last 6 days of the month being effectively in the grave. Precise like a swiss clock it came back on the first, so I can post again. I really have to have a chat with my provider,...

Trying something different

Posted 10-26-2010 at 08:30 AM by jedidia

Of course, everything is not as easy as I thought it would be, beginning with the purely mathematical problems described in my last post, and now continuing with problems in the implementation: It turns out that my whole calculation assuming a legion of spherical cows suffers a problem not uncommon for overly generalised solutions, which is insufficient accuracy. Although the formulae seem to work more or less well, the error margins for a burn timing are terrifyingly small when racing around at...

Developement is going as well as walking under water. That time-skip propagation function is giving me more trouble than I initially thought, one simple reason being that I didn't really think about what it involves... Anyone observing the space maths thread might have witnessed my extreme clumsiness to even identify the correct function when it was presented to me on a silver tablet. But I totally have to take fuel consumption into account, because the fuel masses we are talking about for an interstellar...
