    Project Videnie orbit drawing source code

    I am no longer active as an add-on developer, and don't even have the means and environment to fix bugs. So all my old add-ons are effectively orphaned now. If i keep them to myself, nothing will ever happen. But if i let them out there is at least a chance someone might adopt them. Some of...

    A story on escaping a supernova?

    Have anyone heard of or read a sci-fi story (preferably of a hard kind) based around an escape from an upcoming supernova event? The idea i was contemplating is set in a universe with jump point interstellar travel (think "The Mote in god's eye"). A research station on a habitable (or...

    Discussion Ripple Aerospace plans to launch rockets from the ocean?

    I recently came across these guys: It's a Norwegian aerospace company that is developing an ocean-launched reusable rocket with an aerospike engine that is supposed to take 2.6 tonnes to LEO. Apparently the first test launch would be within 4 months. They also...

    Poll Browser performance testing

    Recently i've been porting my programming environment to output JS, to have the ability to produce programs that can be run from the browser. Keeping up with the modern times. This is uncharted territory for me, and so i want to get some basic data on whether things work and how well. So i...

    Question Game idea/testing: Rocket Land

    Hello everyone. There is a game (tentatively named "Rocket Land") i made quite a while ago but never bothered to continue or release because KSP came out. I'm contemplating reviving it, and want an independent opinion on whether it's something with a potential or is worthless, as well in what...

    The Banshee, prelude

    I've been looking at that lonely, hot exoplanet that was discovered last week in the TW Hydrae stellar association. Contemplating what it would look like there. Filling in the blanks, doing the math. I'd love to write a story set there, but i can't put a storyline together if my life depended on...

    Project Open Universal Autopilots

    As i mentioned before, odds are i won't be around to finish or improve my add-ons, even the good ones. But there is one add-on that is both good and open-source friendly, being made in C++ and with extendability in mind. UAP, the Universal Autopilots. Previous threads...

    The end of an era, or R.I.P. OGLAClient

    Sometimes you look back and realize it's been a while. It's been a while since i really did anything with, for, or in Orbiter. I used it a time or two to explain orbital mechanics, and that's about it. I kept thinking about doing this or that, or porting some new or interesting Spaceway idea...

    Oculus Rift testing request

    Long story short, i'd love to have Oculus Rift support in Orbiter for the Copernicus project's simpit. It so happened that i got a chance to test the device today. Bad news is, i only had a few hours of warning to understand the SDK and write the support into OGLA engine, and then about 10...

    [Teaching & feedback] Copernicus - Space Science Laboratory Friends of mine are going to be running a learning camp in Budapest this July, themed around building a space elevator. Not just any space elevator, but the one that is using the spoils of space mining going down to power the lifting of the payloads. However...

    Cockpit Door Discussion

    By the way, how exactly do you lock a door on that plane? The report does not say anything about sounds of the copilot getting up and locking the door. If you need to get out to lock/unlock it, then that suggests medical issues or confusion of some sort just as easily as suicide. Then, what if...

    Gaming Artlav's Space Engineers Server

    How about an OF Space Engineers server (as talked about here )? First take wasn't too good, perhaps second time the charm. If there is enough interest and nothing breaks, i can keep it online indefinitely at no extra cost...

    Discussion Orulex revival?

    Orulex is a terrain generator for Orbiter that i once made. Orulex_Land_Gen-v1.2 It was not updated for almost 6 years, for a variety of reasons. I've recently dug up the sources for a version of it that would compile and run, dated from somewhere between then and now. Which begs a question...
