Loving the beta Version, I realise the focus is on stabilising the essentials, but I just couldn't resist and thought it was worth bringing up, I tried running the delta heavies add on, the crafts loaded (where on earth I'm not sure) however the vessel sat on a steep incline (guessing about 15deg) from horizontal, tried a few of the stock "delta" scenarios and consistently they more horizontal than vertical, I pushed the throttle up but these birds don't work so well in the horizontal, but did appear to be functioning until, I quit the flight after bout 30 secs as clearly I wasn't going anywhere successfully.

I was guessing it was an error in the scenario cfg file but not sure what, tried using the scenario editor but it would CTD, FIGURED AFTER THAT I would just hop back in atlantis and wait greater minds to transcend the beta to a stable condition.

If you want to fly one of the heavies, try BrianJ's Falcon Heavy.
First install the base package, then overwrite it with the 2015-compatiblity patch.
Is a great launcher, and stands vertical on the pad!

Hi guys!
Can't download the Beta. It's strange but svn ask me for a login and password. At the moment I have to use my very old computer with Win XP and the version of Tortoise is 17.
Maybe it's too old, or I have to know about the authorisation news?

Hi Retoxic,
for the (read-only) SVN access no authorization is needed!
I'm using a 1.9 version of subversion (TortoiseSVN 1.9.0 to be precise).
Nevertheless the version differences between 1.7 to 1.9 should not present any problems accessing the repository.
But it might still be a good reason to update your SVN client
Maybe you have a wrong repository URL?
Code:
svn co svn://orbithangar.com/orbiter/ .
should get you the current 'trunK'[1]

Hi kuddel, it was my fault. I mixed up the export and import functions. Sorry for stupid question.

thanks francisdrake, nice to play with something other than a shuttle during beta building.
