is it possible to launch spacecraft on an angled (tilted) launchpad or rail? i have a new interest in simulating sounding rockets and would like to use VINKA'S spacecraft DLLs to launch a rocket at an assigned angle like at WALLOPS.

thanks.

with Multistage2015 you can, it's enough to define the vertical_angle parameter specified in the docs

If you are into programming, you can change the landing points of any vessel using a small LUA script.
I've done that for the VS-40 sounding rocket. Also added code to simulate roll stabilization (dependent on air speed) as usual for unguided sounding rockets.

So take a look at Orbiter's help and try to get into LUA scripting.

Hi, I know the post is old, but I have the same question. Using the vertical_angle parameter of Multistage2015 the rocket is placed at that angle AFTER the rocket ignition.

After:

Code:
[MISC]
COG=1
GNC_Debug=0
Telemetry=0
Focus=1
Thrust_real_pos=0
