We got pictures!

Stanford Torus Space Colony View

I uploaded a bunch of my Orbiter screen caps to the new Flickr site. Just a convenient and free way to store a bunch of higher resolution pix (up to 1280 x 1024) on-line. The example above is one of my favorite "places" in Orbiter, the Stanford Torus Space Colony. If you want to see a wide range of Orbiter's graphics, browse through my Flickr pages - 46 "photos" so far. Gas giants, green Mars, space elevators, Moon landers, Mars Direct, even the Death Star, but without its (add Dr. Evil finger quotes) "Giant Lay-zer."

This may be my last post of the month. It looks like I've really gotten into this, and it is more or less the kind of thing I used to write in my flight lesson and flight sim journals for my own amusement - which is pretty much what this is too!

Have you been able to get the rotation animation to work properly?

Every time I try using the Stanford Torus with the animation enabled, or starting it, Orbiter just crashes on me.
