My Orbiter web page - vessels catalog

Posted 05-31-2011 at 02:50 PM by vchamp

One day I was planning a new mission and wanted to know which vessels are suitable for it. There is no centralized source of information about ships characteristics and abilities. At least I don't know such sources. So it was inconvenient to make the search in different docs.

After that I decided that making the vessels catalog is not a bad idea. It could be used as a reference when I need to know a vessel's weight, fuel mass, payload capacity, delta V, thrust, ISP, acceleration. Of course most vessels allow you to change these parameters, so the values are for default settings only.

Currently only the Delta-glider family is in the catalog. I don't know how far this site will get, the progress is slow, but I hope that orbinauts will find it useful.

Let me know if you spot a mistake.

    it will take off as soon as you get a larger ship catalog. Give the url to a search engine optimizer and you'll shoot up the ranks on google.

    Vchamp there is an error in the Delta-glider DG-S Mk.4.

    In the pictures the serial number on the DG-S is DG-S-01 but it should be GL-01S.

    Why do you think it should be GL-01S? Delta-gliders and Shuttle A have a nice feature that paints the name of the vessel on their external textures. DG-S-01 was a name of the ship when I was making screenshots (yes, I take these pictures from Orbiter, not from a 3D editor). Although this name was a bit too long and is clipped on the vertical surfaces, but I didn't bother to make new screens yet, with GL-01S.

    No, it's only a Beta, look at the development thread.
