  1. "Bless the maker and his water, bless the coming and going of him, may his passing cleanse the world" Kremen prayer. Sorry, had to do it
  2. These are some great answers, thanks. I was originally thinking about an Arthur C. Clarke novel, I think it was 2064?, where they accelerated 1g, turned, decelerated 1g to Juipter. It never occurred to me that the program might not be able to keep up. Thanks for the responses.
  3. Please forgive me if this is a repeat question. In my limited understanding of things interplanetary I thought it possible if you had enough delta-v you could accelerate half way there, then decelerate for the second half. And, or, with sufficient delta-v you could just go any time and not worry about launch windows. Am I B: correct in my assumptions, and B: if I am correct how would I do that in the game?
  4. Thanks, I figured it was something like that, I'll give it a try. I just need to decide if I want to try to land on the Mun backward or fly home and do some re-engineering. P.S. this is one of the the coolest games, I just can't stop playing it.
  5. O.K. so for my Mun shot I get the bright idea of putting a booster rocket in orbit first. I use a modified stock heavy lander, and put the docking port on the bottom, so when mated to my booster, and the whole thing is in line. Seemed a clever idea. However, everything on the nav ball reversed, retrograde became pro etc. So in essence I had to fly backward. What happened?
