    Request Aircrafts and spaceships from Macross franchises

    I don't remember seeing anything for Macross, and a quick OHM search doesn't turn up anything. As far as atmospheric flight characteristics in space ... it looks cooler on the screen even though the wings would make no difference whatsoever in space ... nothing for the control surfaces to act...

    New Release D3D9Client Development

    This may have been covered ... if so, sorry ... I searched but couldn't find this particular problem. Been out of orbiter for a while due to real-world issues ... loaded a fresh clean orbiter 100830 load, no add-ons in it at all ... unzipped - copied/pasted rc39 to the orbiter directory. I...

    Software Orbiter in a VM

    I am an IT person myself ... I figured I'd hit issues running in a VM ... but, I was wanting to keep everything non-work related segregated to it's own little sandboxed world if possible.

    Software Orbiter in a VM

    Question 3D Orbiter support?

    I recently went and saw The Last Airbender in 3d ... my first viewing of a "Real 3D" movie ... the glasses were very comfortable ... after about 5 minutes I didn't even notice I had them on ... and that was even while wearing them over my normal prescription glasses. Great results, no...
