Intergalactic trip in preparation

The only marker you need to line up is the hyperjump vector with your target. The delta-v marker is the direction you boost to change your ships vector through space in order to do that. You are free to engage the hyperjump engines anytime you wish, but if you are not facing the direction you are ar...

Do you want to fly a ship that you like or one that I might like? Take the plunge! Try one yourself!

37671 Wow this is a beautiful system and great lighting!  Are all your ring screenshots from the same system in .990? System is 990 — RS 8496-489-8-8256745-46. White dwarfs are my favourite light sources (this is a white dwarf/red dwarf pair).  Planet 4, I do believe, but there are others to choose...

37676 I have Bilbo's addons, do I have to build the ship myself from them?  I hope you filled it with cameras on each window! You can, but as you can see, I've used parts from other packs, too. But for this ship, you'll have to build it yourself. (And a couple of parts were modified.) But ettore_bi...

37667 Why didn't you tell me you were doing this before, I would have asked you, because it's next on my list.  How did you find a ship with rows of windows like that and can you look through them?  I want that ship!  What? You don't check every new post since your last visit to the forum? Shocking...

Wow, Cronos_99, nice intro.

This...

...is my favourite.  But they are all nice.

(Wish they were bigger.)  Did you edit the Shuttle's texture? Or is that just a lighting thing?

What... me again? Well... okay... My Trip Into the Rings Full thrust into the rings. Might seem crazy but you have to match ring particle orbital velocity. 990-00323.jpg Every body wants to go outside and have a look by this point. 990-00340.jpg I can hear the hiss of snow against the hull... 990-00...

Intergalactic trip in preparation

"Sync velocity" is a routine that the "Hyperjump to" autopilot calls first. So if you are using the "Hyperjump-to" autopilot, then no, you do not have to perform "Sync velocity" first. SE takes care of it for you. That's what autopilots do, no? But you still l...

The purple bug shows the direction you are travelling through space. Where you point your nose has no bearing on this (other than hyperdriove efficiency, or unless you are actively changing your vector). If the purple velocity vector bug is not on your target, you will miss it. Depends how close you...

If you like a challenge, then ignoring what the numbers mean is a good way to go about it. The autopilot is trying to change the velocity of the ship with 12.2g engines by 32.62 light-years per second. That is not going to happen in your lifetime.

Once again, the boost exponent is your warp or hyperdrive throttle. Step 1: Select target. Step 2: Click on "hyperjump to" autopilot. My list is a lot shorter than yours. Oh... Step 3: Enjoy the trip. Mind you, I don't bother with long intergalactic trips. I see no point to it. Takes too l...

Sometimes SE ships and autopilots go wonky.  The info panel says it is trying to correct the delta-v of 32.62 light-years/sec. Good luck with that in your current lifetime with 12.2g engines. ;)
