    Orbiter Multi-Fuctional Display for KSP

    Can someone make a plug-in window that allows you to view your orbital map without pressing M and without a cartoony style view?
    I got the idea from Orbiter\'s MFDs and would REALLY appreciate it if someone could take the time to make such a plug-in. Are there any bored coders out there that can whip something like this together?
    Here\'s an example:

    If someone could do this, do you have an estimate on how long it will take?

    I thought about it, but I don\'t know hot to get orbit information (Ap, Per, ApT, PeT, etc).

    Easy. AP is the highest point in the orbit. Per is the lowest point in the orbit. ApT is the time until the Ap and PeT is the time until the Pe. The orbital map gives us all of this, so you could integrate that with the plug-in. However MechJeb did it is probably the best way to go.

    Hmmmm, have you thought of using the Eldeberry Ni Telemetry system?

    It\'s primarily used for mapping, but I think it would do what you want.

    You didn\'t undertand me. I know what that means, but I don\'t know how to get information about ship\'s orbit.

    Update:
    I understood how to get orbit information. It remains only to make a plug-in that draws MFD\'s GUI and orbit with using formulas. I\'ll try to make it, but I\'m not promise.
