Any hope of this actually creating the maneuver node?

You can click COPY DETAILS and then in the mod "Precise Maneuver" paste the values and then you have the node created. But is your orbit is not perfectly 100x100km with 0.00° inclination, some small fine tuning needs to be done.

I'll have to play some more, copying the time worked but I must have done something wrong on copying the rest, they didn't appear to do anything.

Hey, @TriggerAu , I'm not sure whenever this is TWP or Toolbar mod problem, but TWP doesn't want to stay in blizzy's toolbar. If I set it to use blizzy's toolbar instead of the stock, it disappears from the stock, and appears on the blizzy's. But if I switch vessels or scenes, TWP is back on stock toolbar again, and the TWP settings regarding the toolbar choice automatically reset to stock.

What could be the culprit?

I saw it, and created that settings.cfg file in the PluginData folder, but it didn't fix the problem. TWP still doesn't write anything to that file.

Are you using Linux or Windows? The only thing I can think of is there is a misspelling in the directory or file name or the check for the file is case sensitive.

Windows. We're talking about PluginData folder in KSP directory, right? Not the TWP folder? (there's no PluginData folder there)

Nope. You need to add the folder to TWP.

Okay, I see. Now it works! Speaking of which, a lot of addons have the exact same issue of reverting back to stock toolbar. Maybe this fix would work for other addons as well?

I seriously doubt it. The fix will vary by mod.

Hey, noob question, but, is there not a way to plot between a planet and a moon? I can get a plot between moons or between planets, but not from Kerbin to the Mun...

The Mun is in Kerbin's SOI, it's a simple Hohmann transfer, you don't need to find a transfer window.  That's why a transfer window planner won't plot it.

Like @Loren Pechtel noted its because its not a transfer between to planets orbiting the same common parent - tat said I do wonder if I could tweak it for that cause it could be cool. Ill put ot on my rainy day list

So I take it that means it wont work for plots between bodies in the stock system, with any bodies in any extra-solar planet/galaxy packs?
If not, yeah, adding that would be kewl...

It's job is to guide you to an object in your parent's SOI.

Thus, for example, Mun -> Minmus as Minmus is in Kerbin's SOI, not the Mun's.

Thus, for example, Kerbin -> Duna.  Duna is in Kerbol's SOI, not Kerbin's.

When you want to go to an object within your own SOI it's the much simpler math of the Hohmann transfer.
