    Problem Vinka Orbiter 2016 Surface contact

    I am aware that Vinka SC3/4 has limited compatibility with Orbiter 2016... I have some vessels that CTD immediately and some that seem to work "fine." I don't really care about the crashing ones, but the ones that are working at 95% only have one problem: the vessels have either limited or...

    Flight Question Wind simulation??

    Has wind or atmospheric turbulence been added to the Earth or the XR-2?? Whenever I take off it's super squirrelly on the ascent. Also the flight vector indicator on the HUD seldom matches the direction of my fuselage. It varies back and forth as you can see by my contrail. I have to make...

    Problem Vinka 3/4 Left shift Orbiter 2010P1

    Hey, couldn't find any info on this except some complaints in actual add-on threads but no real solutions: I've always loved the Jedi Starfighter for Vinka SC3/4 but now on my setup I can't open the wing panels with what is supposed to be left shift+1 (old documents say left CTR+1 but neither...

    Question Has anyone seen something like this??

    A while back I had a vivid dream about this object. I was visiting some big city museum (think National/Royal History Museum) and this was the visiting exhibit. The tour guide explained that it was the oldest known intact human structure. He called it "the Hermeneutical Tower". Oddly I had...

    Weird sounds at night, military? navy?

    Howdy folks, We have this local "mystery" that most in the area are stumped over. While it has been confirmed (?) to be related to some kind of training or testing activity for the military or navy, thats about as specific as it gets. Here is my description I posted for the local newspaper...

    Myth Dispelled: HST can observe the moon

    On some other thread a while back, someone mentioned that the HST can't look at the moon because it is too bright. I read that and just thought "hmm... yes that makes sense." Just ran across this and thought I'd post it not only for the cool pictures, but also just to spread the word that HST...

    General Question Nice HUD effects absent on home box

    I installed orbiter on a computer and the HUD is really awesome with transparency effects and a glowing effect where the lines overlap. There are no such effects when I use orbiter at home on my own pc. Any idea what the difference is here? I didn't even know what I was missing out on!

    Question TTM24

    Does anybody know what happened to the To The Moon in 24 Hours author? I really used to enjoy that particular addon back when orbiter 2003 was the thing to have. I kind of forgot about it and then remembered how cool it was recently. I also remember running out of RCS fuel on the way from the...

    Space Laser and warfare

    Hey, I've always wondered this- I don't know much about theoretical high powered lasers, but whenever i'm watchin sci-fi movies i can't help but wonder this: If people are having laser battles, what would stop people from just having super reflective mirrored ships (or deployable shells)...
