When approaching the ISS, my RendezvousMFD is very wierd!
Orbiter saved state at T = 9933
Date MJD 58999.9358751314
So I can do this mission manually, but obviously that's not realistic and what happened in real life. How do I use some kind of autopilot to do all the things needed? The Falcon 9 mods comes with a great launch and circularisation AP, but stuck on the rest of how to automate the align, sync...
A thought came to mind, the Crew Dragon is actually very easy to build, as it's only touchscreen .. no overhead, few buttons, joystick etc. The only problem is the touchscreen interface is not simulated in Orbiter. Anyone going to attempt it?
IMO it should be an international crew made up of Americans, Europeans, Russians etc. In a world already fractured, a multi-national effort will let the whole of humanity cheer the mission on. Putting humans on Mars should not be the job of 1 nation.
I wonder if the manned Moon and Mars landings...
Looks very cool but pricey!!
Anyone watching this TV show? On today they visited the German Aerospace Center and used a PC simulator to dock the Soyuz with the ISS. Was wondring what sim it is? They used 2 very nice joysticks which has given me the idea of putting them in orbiter!
After installing the new scenery and configuring the Mars.cfg file, and using the DGIV Mars scenario. the ground flickers black and the ship flickers in and out of view. Anyone else having similar issues?
I'm looking to get a space station into orbit around mars so i have something to dock at. Apparently this one is good (Ceres V3.0). But how do i put it in orbit and what values are recommended? I imagine using the scenario editor somehow?
Im trying to use IMFD to go from the Earth to the Moon while following David Courtne's videos. Unfortunately I'm a bit stuck. The BV dV remaining seems to be going up instead of down. Hopefully the pics will make it more clearer.

Hi all, I'm trying to move to 2016. My favourite starting point for all my missions in at CSSC with the XR2 attached to the HCLV Hyperion. It does not seem to work in 2016, so any equivalents?
Secondly, any add-ons for joysticks to replace the Fly-by-wire?
Also, any replacement for UAP...
I setup the ZIP file and installed D3D9Client2016-R1. When I open orbiter_ng.exe and select any of the scenarios, i get an appcrash.
Orbiter was shown in use at the UK South Pole science base. It was used to test scientists motor skills!
