Hi all,
apart from having multiple Orbiter installations with copies of a base (which sounds a bit overkill), is it possible to have a base that evolves with the passage of time? More/different buildings, launch towers, etc?
Or is it already possible by editing the scn file?

There is a nice feature inside Orbiter for a while, that allows you to specify different folders for loading the bases depending on scenario context and MJD period.

For example, you can do that in Earth.cfg:

Code:
; === Surface Bases ===
; place additional bases or
; base directories in this list
BEGIN_SURFBASE
DIR Earth\BaseGemini CONTEXT Gemini
DIR Earth\Base
END_SURFBASE

You can find the details about this in the OrbiterConfig.pdf, starting at page 15, heading "Selective loading of bases".

It's not possible to update a base at simtime, I don't think. You'll have to load a new scenario.
