    Question Does anybody play GPS 3 here?

    I was wondering, does anyone play GPS 3/Master's of the World? It is a geopolitical simulator where you can play as any country and control the economy from many aspects. You can go to war. Pretty much you can do everything. It is more of an indie game so I wouldn't expect maybe, but a couple of...

    Question Its been awhile... how to increase an "edge's" thickness in Anim8or?

    Yeah, it has been a long time since I have developed addons as I have been preoccupied with other duties. So, with my question in hand, I ask a very simple question. In Anim8or how do you increase the "edge's" thickness. Right now it is as thin as sheet metal, but I have no insight on how to...

    .dll Question Staging a .dll

    I am so frustrated. I have been working a a multistage .dll for so long, but to no success. I don't really understand where to start. I can make a spacecraft and SSTOs, but multistaging is not working for me. I need some pointers on how to do this a quick and easy way. For example, do I make a...

    Support UMMU does not work with my .dll ship

    I just read the UMMU SDK for tips and help on how to implement it in my .dll. It was a relatively easy procedure involving copy/paste. I did everything the document said to, but with only partial success. I know even if it compiles that it still doesn't mean it will work properly. Better than...

    C++ Question LNK4098 error that happened suddenly?

    I was adding the OrbiterSoundSDK35.h/lib to my project so I can add some custom sounds. That went fine. Then I tried to add a flag for setting the thruster level to 0 if the engine state is 0. I was having trouble with that so I wanted to figure it out later. I deleted that little snippet so I...

    Question Am I to expect much?

    For my laptop I have only 3GB DDR2-333 RAM. I bought 4GB of DDR2-800 RAM. It is one more gig that I had before and about 2.5 times the speed of my old RAM. Am I to expect much at all? Any improvement with FPS with games? The processor isn't great either. It is a Athlon 64 X2 1.6 GHz (dual-core)...

    API Question OAPI animations

    This is what I have so far added to my future animation that I am making. int Spacecraft::clbkConsumeBufferedKey (DWORD key, bool down, char *kstate) { if (!down) return 0; // only process keydown events if (KEYMOD_SHIFT (kstate)) { } else { // unmodified keys switch (key)...

    API Question I don't understand THRUSTER_HANDLE

    Okay. My plane has over 8 separate thrusters. However, when I go to THRUSTER_HANDLE, I set the th_main to [8]. Then I go to create the thrusters further down my .cpp. It looks like this. th_main = CreateThruster (_V(0,0,-4.35), _V(0,0,1), Spacecraft_MAXMAINTH, hpr, Spacecraft_ISP)...

    Flight Question Leaning towards interplanetary flight...?

    Lately I have been feeling rather limited in LEO and the Moon. Just a second ago I was wondering, "How much cooler would this be if I was in orbiter around Jupiter?" So, with that said, what do you recommend that I learn and use to start learning about interplanetary travel? What addons are best...

    Project Warhead module (collaboration project)

    I was wondering if anyone is interested or at least willing to help me with the development of a custom .dll module of a warhead. I have seen others do it in SDK, but it way to confusing considering how much stuff their header file implies. I want something unique that could stand above other...

    May be over my head, but I don't know

    I was thinking. Since I have many ICBMs. It is so easy to launch them and etc, but what about another factor. Why not try for Air Defense? How hard would it be to make an Air Defense rocket that can track the ship pretty accurately or so and collide with it? I just don't know how hard this would be.

    Video/Commercial for Orbiter

    I was thinking of something. Why not make a formal, professional video/commercial representing Orbiter 2010 on youtube and promote it. We have 5,000 members and would probably have more if more people knew about Orbiter. It is just an idea. For example, you could show the Saturn V going to the...
