I had some unmanned probes and some manned craft I had but lost due to backup storage drive has failed, so here's a question regarding to the crafts I've lost: I had some manned/unmanned craft/probe that are fully automatic, from launch to landing at destination and the return trip, can anyone help me identify those crafts that has this feature? I do not remember the names of these crafts and some does not explain about it within the description text on the download site, some has been explained within the doc. after download, so thanks to anyone that help me identify those craft.

Can you define the word "characteristics" on what you want to now, I know what it means, no offense, but can you be more specific about it so I can give you the right answer, right now I'm doing 7 emails at a time on a personal real world project regarding to the word characteristic, so if you can help me narrow down what your looking for, I will give you the right answer, thanks.

Well, I'm not good at this, so I will do the best I can, the feature the vehicles that I had, especially on the probes/satellites was as follow, that will varies on the individual probes/satellites, so heres the feature (or capabilities if you will):

For Non-Manned Vehicles:
1) Auto-Launch.
2) Auto-Course trajectories to target according to mission parameters, one of them I have that goes to the moon and the other one which I do not remember goes to Mars, I remember controlling some sort of rover myself.

For Manned Vehicles:
1) Auto-Launch.
2) Auto-Course trajectories to target according to mission parameters.
3) Auto-Land at intended Target and operate vehicle(s) myself.
4) Auto-Takeoff of target landed and rendezvous to return vehicle.
5) Auto-Return to Earth trajectories.

These are what I remembered doing but don't remember the vehicles I use. Now to Mars and other far flung places, I tries doing it with TransX with utmost continuous failure, missing it, out of fuel, and most of all, which happened more often, collision course into the sun, well for me, the sun is more like a wall instead of burning up, if theres any download/update to the sun to make it more real, such as getting too close to it and burn up, I would be happy there when something simulate the real sun, anyway, I am very unsuccessful of using the TransX or other MFD, going to and from the moon is fine, that's simple, but anywhere else, I would call that a suicide mission, I can never get to where I'm going, thanks to those vehicles that I lost that got me there and back in one piece, the only way I can get to other planets, but can't go into other planets is Star Trek vehicles, it's fun for a little while, but I would like to do some "low-tech" todays technologies for a while, something different and fun then point and click, and something that will take a while to get there. Any help will be very grateful.

I have to say that I don't know of any vehicles that can do all that by themselves. Are you sure some of the add-ons didn't come with pre-configured trans-X stages?

I think that if such addons existed they'd be quite popular.

Now, we do have the UCGO Arrow, XR-2,XR-5, DG-IV and so on that do have autopilots built in so you can some of the things you listed.

Yes, the vehicle that I has did came with pre-configured trans-x stages as far as I remembered. Now for the sun I asked, is there any sun that are more life-like and will burn up if get too close to it instead of acting like an invisible wall, every time I get close to it, I hit it like I was hitting a bump stop or even a bumper cars without being destroyed, I would like a sun where you make one miscalculations and get too close to it and burn up or even destroy the vessel, any help here?
