Just a quick note; I checked and the following links do not appear to active:

More Basic Tutorials
  • How to Make Orbiter Videos & Screen Shots
Advanced Flight
  • The Easiest Mars Trip I've Ever Done! Using I-MFD
Space Shuttle Tutorials
  • Atlantis to ISS
  • Atlantis Reentry and Landing
Apollo Tutorials
  • Apollo Lunar Landing Mission Tutorial
  • Apollo 11 Tutorial
I do not mean this to be critical; I just wanted to point out links that are no longer active or no longer contain the listed tutorial. I love reading through these since I learn so much from them.

Could you include my tutorials?

I was wondering if you thought my tutorial is good enough to include on this list. Its listed under this thread:

"From the Earth to The Moon" an AMSO 1.17 Apollo 11 Full Mission Tutorial Using IMFD

Maybe you could take a look and see if its good enough to list under your Apollo Program tutorials.

Thanks.
Added to the list. :cheers:

Just like to add a link to my Earth to Mars tutorial using TransX. It says its for an old version of Orbiter but is still usable with the newest edition.

[ame="http://www.orbithangar.com/searchid.php?ID=2091"]Interplanetery Flight Tutorial[/ame]

Its proved popular over the years so perhaps i'll do a 2nd edition!

I'd also recommend reading the licences the tutorials are under. Many (if not all) can be freely distributed as long as you give proper credits.
