    the attach restrictions , the red arrows that imply that the 2 parts are incompartible to be attached in that position.

    OHM Station Shipyard

    using the standart orbiter mesh specification ; importing orbiter meshes The attachment points could be defined using .cfg files or within your 3d prog and remove the Restrictions - allow the user to freely attach parts

    Earth shine algorithm

    @tblaxland The idea is to find the percentage of the illuminated surface to the vessel's visual 3d sphere. we find the percentage of the bright side to the planet's visible circle THEN (not mentioned here) we find the percentage of the planet's visible circle to the vessel's visual 3d sphere...

    Earth shine algorithm

    @Fizyk can you simplify your equations ? i'm lost is this for the 2d or the 3d ? the 'z' is the yellow arc ? heres what i figure out so far for the 2d version... we know f so the <ab> angle = 180 - 90 - f we divide it to the 360 degrees FRAC=( 180 - 90 - f ) / 360 degrees apply the...

    The Yellow area versus brown area percentage of the 2dPLANE is equal to the SPHERE's Yellow area versus brown area percentage ? i mean the 2d vs the 3d have the same Yellow % do they have the same analogy ?
