By 80mileshigh and Axel.

Deepstar is an interplanetary spacecraft, designed to explore the outer solar system.  This add-on includes Deepstar, two landers, and landing sites for Io, Rhea, Titan, Titania and Triton.

This latest version of Deepstar resolves compatibility problems with Orbiter 2010.

Hi!
There is a problem when landing on Titan, the lander began spinning rapidly in the atmosphere for landing and take-off

Titan's atmosphere is too much for these landers which are designed for airless moons. I have nearly completed a winged atmospheric lander which will permit landing on Titan. In the meantime you could hitch a DG or one of the XR's to one of Deepstar's free docking ports, and land on Titan this way.

There is a readme for the add-on in your doc folder - Deepstar2.1.pdf - which describes this on page 6:

... the landers that accompany Deepstar for this version are not designed for atmospheric landings so the site on Titan should be explored by other means for now.

Well, it's still a landing site, just not for landers of that type.

Hi!
I took it to a spin around moon and landed with lander on surface..I must admit since I am used to DGIV I had some problems trying to learn to fly it..but I did land perfectly on surface.,Waited for Deepstar and then went up manualy ( my first try to take of from moon and dock all manually without autopilots) it was smooth ride..docking was hard, it is hard to remember all is inverted but at the end I did it, went to LEO and finished scenario :D
Nice craft to fly, good work

Very happy to see this great ship updated.
But.........the only problem I have is to EVA from a lander on a moon you fall from the top of the lander and have no way of getting back in. Would it be possible to add a second dock at the bottom ?

I can't speak for this or other intermediate releases, but by Deepstar 3.0 the UMMU ingress/egress point will be at the base of the ladder.
