afyber Posted Saturday at 02:32 PM Share Posted Saturday at 02:32 PM When in Duna' SOI and attempting to create a maneuver node for an interplanetary transfer back to Kerbin something goes wrong in the orbit calculations. Because if I make a maneuver node that should make the orbit bigger (burning along Duna's prograde), the orbit line appears to be a smaller orbit (around the sun). This stops happening once you leave Duna's SOI, so you can create a maneuver which appears to give an encounter with Kerbin, but only from Duna's broken calculations, so once you leave the SOI the orbit has gotten bigger instead of smaller. This also works the other way, if you make a maneuver to burn Duna's retrograde, which should make the orbit smaller, it appears bigger until you leave Duna's SOI.
