I was wondering, how could we expect the spacecraft system in 0.96? Like Orbiter/Spaceway or something completely different?

I hope its like Spaceway but through the WASD keys and mouse wheel lets you slow down/speed up.

Exactly. But without any MFD / compute orbit systems for now. Only manual control, interplanetary flights is almost impossible smile

Just orbiting a planet will be great. I've tried it in spaceship mode in the current version, but you have to press F every now and then to let your ship move down with the curve of the planet, as the lazy planet won't pull you down itself.

I agree with apenpaap, I will be so glad just to have spaceflight physics biggrin Interplanetary flight might be a little easier in some systems - like Gliese 581 or Kepler-11 - that have tightly-spaced planets. In Kepler-11 you would need a rather high delta-V though.

I take it that 0.96 will not have joystick support?

Sounds great as for almost impossible interplanetary travel, I accept that challenge.

Actually you can orbit properly, but you must be in 'gameplay' (4 key) mode. It helps to know the orbital velocity for your current altitude, so let's use Earth as an example. At 350 km above the Earth, you can orbit if you fly at about 7.7 km/second parallel with the ground.

Without a HUD it can be hard to orient properly, but press 1 for Free Flight mode, then shift-g and land. After your camera is oriented with the ground, translate straight up without rotating until you reach 350km. Press ctrl-3 to access the ship menu, choose one, and then click Teleport Here. You'll see it appear and immediately begin to fall away from you. Click Switch To and now you're flying the ship, in the same orientation as your camera. Accelerate forward until your speed is about 7.7km/sec. Visually ascertain whether your front and back velocity markers are an equal height above the planet, and adust your speed accordingly with use of the translational thrusters.

It's not ideal, but that should get you started.

Hehe, thanks for the help, but the rest of the thread, including my posts, were written back in 0.95 tongue There was no game mode or ships back then. XD
