Intergalactic trip in preparation

The autopilot will setup a relative velocity of 10 km/s in the appropriate direction, and then engage the warp drive. I believe a "WarpBoostLog" of 12 (warp engine strength in the ships *.sss file) will give an effective velocity of about 1 light-year per second by default. This will take ...

37462 Wait, since I'm on autopilot won't the ship just slow down automatically? That does mean I have to do a third video for braking lol.  Question, how come I don't see stars whizzing by like I see in Planetarium mode? They seem like they're blurry and just frozen in place? I remember I was in wa...

37457 How do I accelerate the ship even more?  It still says it will take another over 1.1 days to get there and I want it to get there in about 10 hours or so?  Main engines are still maxxed at 100 and Boost is all the way at 11.637-- the highest it can get for this ship You picked a very distant ...

37451 Yes it's active.  I think I finally got the hang of it, I'll post some screenshots when I get to a new planet.  I'm hoping this ship I'm using is powerful enough to go anywhere in the SE universe in 12 hours or less.  Looks like it maxes out at warp 11.5 Check out the top right panel, "A...

37447 The ship does seem to be accelerating as the speed is increasing with time.  So the ship will automatically decelerate when I approach my target?  I've noticed it do that before. To keep a constant speed in warp, turn off the main engines. Otherwise you will keep accelerating. Your warp speed...

37439 So Control-Numpad doesn't change the direction the ship is moving, but gives the appearance of the pilot changing the direction he or she is looking in? Yes, it effectively pans the camera. You should still see the HUD if you have it active. 37439 By the way, does this work in warp mode too, ...

Thinner air, less pressure. If you slow down it will decrease (dynamic!). If you leave the atmosphere, it will drop to zero.

37435 In the case of the waterskiing camera, what I did was press 3 to use it, but I really didn't get any closer to the surface, I had the same view as before I pressed it, the only difference was no HUD lol. Yes, but you have control over the camera as you normally do without a ship. Use up, down...

37431 Is Altitude distance of the ship above sea level and is Elevation height of the terrain above sea level?  So if I want to figure out the distance of the ship above the local terrain it would be Altitude minus Elevation? Elevation should be height above the terrain. Altitude is height above se...

My point was that SE concentrates on a wider variety of celestial objects, all manner of exotic places to visit. I don't spend any time on or even near Earth, so why waste resources on trying to do a detailed Earth? Orbiter would be better for Earth-orbital flights, or Solar System in general, as th...

Perhaps it's a matter of using the right tool for the job. I've said it before — Vladimir has given me an entire universe to play around in (I would have been happy with just a galaxy ;)), if I wanted to play around in Earth orbit, I'd still be flying Orbiter. And for actual astronomical events and ...

37395  downloaded the other ships you recommended so I have them now to test on, as well as Klud's other mods he posted there.  I found that some of them (like the Grand Canyon mod- which I want to do a fly by of!) I already had from the Workshop.  It's a large file size, I don't need both do I? Ju...

37390 What's generally considered being in suborbital flight- anything under 100 km right? I would think that would depend on the body in question. Again, switch to Orbit HUD mode, check Rs min  and compare it with your current distance. 37390 What does it take to keep the flight in aviation mode v...
