Hey Tex,

thank you for this cool movie series! I gues it was much work but it's great!
I never got so entertained by an Orbiter video series (Maybe I don't know all of them :))

Maybe the increasement of you dv did because you don't have activated "Nonspherical gravity sources" and / or "Radiation pressure" in the Parameter tab in the launchpad? I gues for IMFD you should activate this options but I'm not sure... I guess it also depents on the settings of IMFD which parameters you have to set to be more accurate...

[Edit] I just seen that there is a line in the IMFD5.cfg I have edited on my installation and set to 2:
Code:
NonSpherical 2          // Use Non spherical gravity on low orbit prediction in Map Program, 0=Disabled, 1=Auto, 2=Always ON

Thanks for checking out the series mate! :cheers:

I have all of that enabled. I have modified IMFD config file based on Dimitris recommendation, so I'm not sure if something in there has caused it. At any rate, I got there, but I wasn't 100% sure I did it correctly. :)

Amazing. Absolutely amazing.

This simulator has quite a steep learning curve. I haven't even gotten to pre-flight checklists yet - I'm still in the process of finding the right versions of Orbiter modules that work well together, and getting caught up with the community and the forum.

Although I planned on starting with Orbiter 2010P1 and SSU (and all dependent modules), it's great to see what other amazing things can be done in this simulator. Thanks for being a shining beacon for this community. Maybe once I've gotten the swing of SSU, I'll give some interplanetary missions a try.

Even though the learning process is grueling, seeing content like this makes me want to learn that much more.
