    Aircraft cannot make banking turn

    I understand what you're saying, but I just feel like there's something wrong or something, since any plane supposedly just turns if it rolls to the side.This article says a paper airplane turns if it rolls to the side. https://www.grc.nasa.gov/www/k-12/airplane/alr.html https://www.grc.nasa.gov/www/k-12/airplane/objmotion.html
  2. Something about the aerodynamics isn't allowing the planes to bank left or right. The aerodynamic force should make it turn according to this article. https://www.decodedscience.org/how-does-an-airplane-turn-forces-working-to-turn-an-aircraft/11656
  3. I just wanted to suggest making a graphical editor to make mods.

    Interior models

    I understand. But I don't understand the interior configuration files. I can make a 3d model of the interior, but I don't know how to convert it into an actual interior view.
  5. Why aren't the interior models for the stock parts inside of the part folder? There's a spaces folder that has the interior views it looks like.
  6. I just wanted to share this command module I made in the past.  It looks real.  I'm trying to make a new one though.zDHqbWA.png

    Creating a mod

    I have no idea how to measure the error in orientation, but the control algorithm for my previous autopilot mod depended on the angular velocity. The desired angular velocity about whichever axis depended on the error with respect to that axis, and I varied the angular acceleration to maintain the desired angular velocity, so as you're rotating it smoothly just decelerates on the desired direction, and if the ship is rotating like with its orbit then it just maintains the angular velocity. But I don't know how to use quaternions to accomplish that. I just used the down direction and right direction and forward direction to compare to the orientation. And the orbit direction. But I could never figure out how to correct the error like the game itself does. Because it only seems to care about the relative rotation or something, but mine could only depend on the front, down, side directions. And it doesn't seem to care about the roll axis, only yaw and pitch. But that makes it even more confusing for me because I couldn't figure out how to find the desired direction in absolute coordinates, unless it was the orbit direction or something. But the error depends on the angles relative to the forward direction.

    Laythe intercept aerobraking maneuver

  10. From my experience it's difficult to impossible to dock with a surface outpost, because the docking ports have to be the same height above the ground. And they have to be axially aligned, so if there was a way to control the orientation and raise it up it would be easier to dock.

    Show off your awesome KSP pictures!

  12. In the latest update the mouse pointer position does not agree with the button locations, it has to be slightly off, and it's impossible to adjust the resolution because I can't push the button.
  13. Almost every time I exit to the main menu it becomes completely unresponsive. It must be a bug or something.
