The how's and why's of rating addons

Posted 09-26-2011 at 10:00 AM by RisingFury

For a while I've been observing the addon voting system on OrbitHangar and it seemed to me like people didn't put enough thought into the vote the assign to an addon, or that in some cases, they vote dishonestly, because they don't want to offend the author.

So I decided to write guide that will hopefully provoke some thought, before a rating is given. This has been a long time coming.

Another 'Huh' moment

Posted 10-22-2010 at 03:50 AM by Izack

I just decided an hour or so ago to do the Apollo 8 mission, despite having never even made a serious attempt at AMSO before. Much like when I launched Atlantis a few months ago, I was mildly surprised when two hours later I was sitting in a scorched capsule south of Hawaii, having just travelled ~800 000 kilometers, to the Moon and back. Mission was completely successful. Final GET at splashdown: 122 hours, 6 minutes, 45 seconds. Pericynthion was 67 km.

Victor Hugo finished the last of his shrimp fried rice and reached for another eggroll. “Not out of my mind, and yes it’s perfectly doable”. He paused long enough to search the small coffee table, finally finding a small bowl of hot sauce “Ah! Remember now, it’ll be functional, but far from complete.” Swirling the eggroll around in the sauce...

My experience with the "Award winning" Freeware YSFlight Part 1

Posted 05-29-2009 at 02:13 AM by Seb

Welcome to a Seb game review!

Since this post contains lots of images, it'll spread over two blogs.

Today I will be reviewing "YSFlight"

After hearing much speculation about this supposedly great flight simulator and being declared "better than orbiter or fsx" I decided to download this game and give it a try.

Boy was I not disappointed.

So I navigated across the amazingly well designed website and downloaded...
