    Discussion Returning Yes or No

    On the one hand there's learning, in which the community is generally always happy to assist. On the other hand there's playing, which is mostly an individual experience with orbiter, for reasons expounded upon by DaveS above. There have been some VSAs, I think there still are, but again these...

    Surface Base Lunar Base Aurora Orbiter 2016 - not sure why a part is not showing....any ideas?

    My best guess would be that they're clipping with the ground... though I honestly wouldn't expect to still see their silhouettes then.

    That would be very interesting, considering it's Amazon's network... 🤪

    It's kind of weird how sometimes you come full circle. It has been some time since I last managed to accidentally build an infinite loop into my code. The patterns that lead to them become kind of easy to spot after a while, and none of them has a chance to make it past the first unit test...

    Just looking at the thumbnail of the video, it seems like now we're using horrible AI-generated images when a simple quick photoshop session would have sufficed, and delivered much, much better results. I guess we just stopped giving any damns we might have had left...

    "lunans" would be the proper term in my opinion, though I'm sure "lunies" would be used as a common derogative.

    Any library I've ever worked with ever since I was a kid: RGBA consists of 4 values that are either integers from 0 to 255 or floats from 0 to 1. css: RGBA are 3 integers from 0 to 255, and one float from 0 to 1. css: Sticking to the principle of most surprise since its inception! 🤦‍♂️ (I miss...

    Gaming Orbital Margins

    New version up! This one increases mechanical depth by quite a bit by introducing condition for spacecraft, EMU, and the players body. There's also a couple new events going along with that in case you screw up. I've also added a "push" mechanic, that lets you reroll your dice pool under certain...

    Project MoonBaseAlpha for 2016

    Yeah, that would be my first thought.That would be a perfectly normal hud. I'm not sure if you can have two without some hacking, though. Not much experience with VCs.

    Project MoonBaseAlpha for 2016

    But... why not slap the HUD on the pilot window? Why do you need it to overlay the entire cockpit, rather than be a part of it? That's the thing I don't get here. Maybe I'm missing something embarassingly obvious.

    Ah, good old tyche. I remember completely not getting it when I saw an episode for the first time. Later, after having gotten some 20 years older, I realised that I loved it! :) Whoa what, wait, from the videos popping up after watching that one I just realised there was a second season! I...
