Hello everyone,

I've been a longtime fan of Orbiter. My most favorite addons, besides hi-res planets are the Arrow Freighter, The F-302, and the Prometheus. I came to the idea of a spacecraft design that not far away from our future.

With the missions to Mars and the Moon, and the work from SpaceX and Roscosmos - there's a chance that we, as a community, could create the ideal spacecraft out of inspiration.

A new spacecraft with a similar UI?

Touchscreen compatible, much like the Arrow Freighter UI. Warp Drive capability like the F-302, and Autopilot/land capabilities of the Prometheus?

It's an idea, what do you think? I might give it a go, this is new to me and I've countlessly started and stopped design projects.

Could you adapt that to the Crew Dragon VC ?

Wouldn't hurt to try, I need to download that mod too.

I remember back around 2010-2012 someone working on what was essentially an extremely large Arrow (a big interplanetary spacecraft that can land). Unfortunately from what I remember their files were lost due to a computer crash or something of that matter. I tried looking for that thread again recently but couldn't find it. If someone could help find that it could be a great source of inspiration.

I was considering copying the F-302 and using that as a reference. Build the UI and could possible redo the textures first

I think it would be incredible to incorporate that into the Crew Dragon mod. A near-future space capsule / lunar lander would be cool too.

Which Mod would I get from the Orbit Hangar?
