Fred18, is there a possibility of varying the thrust and Isp based on atmosphere or vacuum? I skimmed through the documentation and I saw a parameter based on ISP variation for thrusters but not for the engines.
I have to update the docs with this. I'll find the time sooner or later :hide:
Nope, i think it depends on pressure, desn't it? The thrust given is at the reference pressure level (pressure_sl), then if you lowerthe pressure you get higher thrust. I think it works this way. I'm saying that I think because it uses the built in feature in orbiter of giving reference pressure and I haven't checked if it's the way orbiter core works
From what I read in post number 403, the pressure_sl variable seems to only be used for other planets or moons in the solar system and is used only for ISP, not thrust. Over here: http://www.orbiter-forum.com/showthread.php?p=524854&highlight=impulse#post524854

I've just done a test and that seems to be true, currently I don't think there is anything to model the difference in thrust due to atmosphere.
