    Changed Orbiter's Folder Name.

    Why posting such a trivial stuff here? I don't see the benefits of doing so.

    Project Mir station, Soyuz TM, TM-16, TM(еarly) Soyuz-T, TKS Progress

    According to Wikipedia, "Although [RKK] Energia's code for the Shuttle APAS is APAS-95, it has been described as being basically the same as APAS-89." So, you can copy the docking port of the stock Atlantis in Orbiter 2016, and use it for the Kristall module.

    Question General Spaceflight Q&A

    Some questions regarding Falcon 9: How the Block 5 iteration of Falcon 9 is 100% reliable given the boosters are not refurbished after landing? How SpaceX is able to land the Falcon Heavy boosters simultaniously?

    OHM Vostok v1.1 (for external graphic clients)

    It would be good if you would be able to attach the Vostok spacecraft in a Soyuz rocket compatible with Orbiter 2016, which will be unrealistic with the launch abort tower.

    Same thing would go for "manoeuvre". Is it "manoeuvre" or "manuver" in Spanish? Fortunately, instead of borrowing, Spanish calqued the word as "maniobra"!

    I heard that Spanish maintains a consistent sound-to-spelling correspondence. However, if the word "rendezvous" is borrowed by Spanish, then how should you spell that word as a native speaker of Spanish? Rendezvous? Or something like "rondeivu"? The problem would be fixed if Spanish calque the...

    The OHM had shown its age in many ways. We are fixing them step by step. Quoting @Xyon for why:

    Request Long March rockets

    Thank you! I will fire this add-on in Orbiter 2010 with X-37B. I shall repaint the vehicle with Chinese flag to reconstruct the supposed Chongfu vessel.

    Request Long March rockets

    I wanna have Long March rockets to simulate Chinese missions, including the secret Chongfu Shiyong Shiyan Hangtian Qi (choong-foo-shee-yoong-shee-yen-hang-tien-chee).

    Yeah, you are right. Both English and French are complex in their own way. I just asked the question because I became quite a fond of French culture and their space program, and found that French is an elegant and melodious language.

    Project Space Shuttle Vessel

    I think we should leave that for later, because it will be a lot of hassles. The hatches for the ejection seats are situated between the above windows and the black-coloured area around the cockpit in the image shown below.

    Reaction Engines are conceptualizing a hypersonic variant of Skylon, which will fly at hypersonic speeds using the jet variant of SABRE (maybe SABJE).

    You're right. Sending Dragon to the Moon is pretty complicated. The only way to send tourists to the Moon (other than Starship) is to use Boeing Starliner and Atlas V N42 (4 strap-on boosters).

    Maybe stretching the upper stage and using RL-10 instead of Merlin 1D Vaccum would send Dragon spacecraft to the Moon using expandable Falcon 9. However, I am concerned about its atmospheric reentry after the lunar flyby. It would go nearly as fast as the Apollo reentry capsule and would cause...

    Request Which Sounds Used For Orbiter 2001?

    Does anyone have the November 2000 copy of Orbiter? It will be archived on the OHM for historical reasons. The 010313 should also be archived there. Courtesy pinging to @Xyon.
