It used to be... "TransX, it doesn't make coffee."
Now it is... "TransX, how would you like your coffee?"

Thank you very much for all the hard work you 've put into this Enjo!

Setting up plans and comparing them has never been faster or easier!

Thanks for all the kind words, for testing, and dgat: for helping me realize that all the integration tasks were just a walk in the park

Me? Nooo!
It's The Probe!

If any, the only merit I have is this question to blixel.

After his answer, dgatsoulis published his version on OH, on Nov. 28th.
Maybe it was just laying "forgotten" somewhere on his HD.

The rest...is history!

Sweet. Just in time for my return to Orcus Patera from Phobos. Going to land & resupply then rendezvous with the Arrow for TEI. Will let you know if I see any issues.

Thanks so much to all of you for your work on this!

If anybody is interested how the Auto-Min works behind the scenes, here's my blog entry about it.

Update:
Removed original bottlenecks of TransX, which were leading to frame rate drop and slower reactions while using Auto-Min in "passive mode" (modifying Ej.Date)

Another big thank you to all involved in the TransX development efforts. The new features and additional data readouts are very good.

And Dimitris - I like your colour choice for TransX2, the "evil twin"

New Auto-Center feature works great! I like that you changed the Auto-Center ship orientation to the traditional prograde position.
