Hello guys, I need some help over there. I need to know, how can I get the vector that always poits to the certain spot on the orbit. I'll try to explain. For example, I'm on my stable orbit. And I decide "Oh, such a nice place, I need a vector that starts on my craft and poiting there". Are there any built-in functions in KOS to help me? Or may be I can do it using maths somehow? I've spent a whole day trying to solve it, but nope, I don't know how to do it. Illustrative picture is here (I'm a newbie, so I dont know how to attach my pic without URL). Thx a lot
So, the challenge is to create a kOS program that will launch a spacecraft, put it into a stable orbit around Kerbin, and land the first stage of the rocket on Kerbin, without any manual control (Except starting the program, of course) There is a point system Here is the amount of points you get or lose from doing certain things: MINIMUM: Get to stable orbit, deploy a payload, and land automatically, 1 point. Optional: Payload around Mun: 5 points Costs less than 10000: 5 points Payload weight larger than 50 tons: 2 points Lands near KSC: 3 points Lands on the launch pad: 10 points Lands without parachutes: 5 points Able to configure program to launch different vehicles just by tweaking a few values at the start of the program: 20 points Payload around Duna: 10 points Entire mission to Jool, with an orbiter relay satellite that deploys a probe with a heat shield and returns tons of data automatically: 50 points Good luck!
