    Problem Any fix for the rotation issue in AMSO 2016

    I use Attitude MFD with AMSO. Although working well most times, AMSO seems to have a bug where it thinks one roll RCS thruster is slightly locked on. Once it starts, any saved mission continues with the issue making Apollo missions impossible to fly. Even if you disable Attitude it still happens...

    Question Q. What happened to re-entry MFD? A. It's here !

    I used to use this a lot, but now I can't find it anywhere. It was really useful during LEM landings in manual to show the deceleration required to reach the target. I find it really hard to land the LEM manually now without it. I'm always long, short or simply run out of fuel. Is there...

    General Question Live Streaming

    Hi. I would love to fly one of the Apollo missions in real time and live stream it for my friends who may assist as ground control, but I have no idea how to live stream? Can anyone tell me if it is even possible to live stream an Orbiter mission for that long? If not, is it possible to live...

    Problem Can't close Windows

    Hi. I had Orbiter 2010 P4 installed when I upgraded my PC to windows 10. Now when I run Orbiter I cant close any windows because the little red x does not appear in the top right hand corner (See image). All I can do is drag them across to my second screen, but they soon fill up that. This...

    Flying the Rosetta Mission.

    I used version 3D of BrianJs mission edited and improved by flug. I also used TransX-2, so you need this if you use the scenarios attached if you want to see the TransX plans. I promised BrianJ and Flug I would post some hints and tips for others who want to do it once I had successfully...

    Scenario BrianJ and his Solar Probe Plus Mission

    I Love BrianJ's missions. I wait eagerly for every one and spend hours working out how to do each one. Up to now I have successfully accomplished every one. But not this one. I did the Jupiter slingshot one just fine, that was easy. But the Solar probe plus with seven slingshots past Venus has...

    Flight Question TransX Question.

    I have flown the Voyager mission once with success (Just), but wanted to try it again. But this time I am faced with a problem I just don't know the answer to, probably because I am still learning the intricacies of TransX. The images are from the successful mission, they show me just before...

    Problem Slingshot will not compute.

    Hi. I am flying Brianj's Excellent Vega missions. I am on course and four days away from a Venus encounter on MJD46226.645. From here I need to slingshot to Comet 1p_Halley for an encounter on MJD46495. I normally use IMFD, but it does not do slingshots very well. I am no friend of TransX but...

    Science My Space Engine Videos

    After reading the thread on space engine and drooling at the possibility of Martin working with this guy, I made a couple of videos to wet your lips at the potential. Our Place in the Universe. http://youtu.be/HHZFLPSYCqs The Devil in the Detail. http://youtu.be/zErrQ0SjjbQ Hope you like...

    Scenario Real Time ISS and Satellite Tracking (155)

    I wanted to track the ISS in real time and I tried to use the Heavens traffic MFD in 2010-P1 but it did not work for me, presumably because the information is no longer valid in the scenario. So I made a Scenario for it using the NORAD TLE info for today, it worked and the ISS now tracks with...

    Orbiter 3D Films Coming Soon

    I have been playing around with 3D in orbiter and I have made some small 3D test clips that will play on any commercial 3D TV. The standard here in the UK is side by side format (adopted by Sky, BBC and ITV for commercial broadcasts) so I have made them to the UK standard. They can be played...

    Tutorial Space Shuttle 'Fast and Dirty' Orbital Rendezvous with the ISS

    Tutorial about how to do a "fast and dirty" Orbital Rendezvous with the ISS using the combined add-ons 'International Space Station v.3.2' and 'Shuttle Fleet V4.7' and nothing but the basic MFD's that come with the base Orbiter Install. This tutorial used the mission STS-102 (2001) from the...

    Tutorial Building the ISS.

    I have no idea if you can see this facebook album, I made it public. It is showing my step by step progress on building the ISS. May be helpful to those anal types like myself who wish to build it for themselves. http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150428679807774.414162.767907773&type=3...

    Question HUD in an MFD

    Sometimes it would be nice to see the HUD information when your locked in the spacecraft. I must be crazy I know, but I would like to try a full manual AMSO mission with only the windows to look out of. Problem is I really need to know the angles and piper the HUD gives me so it is not practical...

    General Question Multplayer Option.

    This has probably been asked before so I apologise if that is so. Having created multiplayer games from stand alone games I am aware of the problems. I am also aware that it is really not that difficult once you put your mind to it. Are there, any future plans to make Orbiter a multiplayer...

    Request Better Arrive MFD

    When manually landing on the Moon in AMSO, I can not get the thrust right to arrive at the base with zero acceleration, I either overshoot or end up short ( I use limited fuel as I like realism, so I have little margin for error). I have hunted for an MFD that may help but the closest seems to...
