well, IMO meshing any car like that is a serious waste of time, unless you plan it to fly and go into space :) you'd be
better of trying to stick it into a game like Need for Speed or the likes.

that's your opinion, doc. ;)

deloreans can fly in back to the future. I might just airproof mine and go up up, and away. ;)

It's not as stupid as that "Rocketcar Urban Legend" that appeared on OrbitHangar - you could have a button on the
dash marked "Super Pursuit Mode" which would make all the fins etc pop out and engage rocket boosters. Then you
could have another button marked EBS which would pop the airbrakes out.  And why not make it able to go into
space?  BTW - When will the DGX be publicly available? I cant wait to check it out...

HEh, I think the same "vehicle" appeared as a craft for FS2004 :) Actually rather fun to fly, but I was never able to
softly "hover" land these things (Aliens Dropship, X-Wing), because they always associate flaps and brakes with retro
thrusters and without a joystick the craft becomes pretty unstable... Works a lot better in Orbiter though because
you do hove hover engine option :)

Err, just to note: I will make the delorean ( in the DLL coding ) unable to *fly* in orbiter :) Of course you will still be
able to drive with it...


Btw, about DG-X.. uhmm the test-release (the release between beta2 and beta3) has been out for a while now..

check my homepage
http://www.essa.hk.st

and my forum:
http://s7.invisionfree.com/OrbiterEurope/
for the download link.

Oh, yes, indeed, I did not release it in all publicity on the M6 boards, since lots of things in this *test* release are
disabled (like bottom-panel buttons and failures), so this release isn't too interresting for most of the people..

(only if you want to drive a fps-eating Cobra, or want to check out the new EVA-system, then you might want to
download it)


regards,
mcduck

Oh, yes one thing:

At the time I released that test, I forgot this to add to the changelog:
- Added Groundsteering (experimental implementation).

(so this is actually included in this test-release though)

What about KITT? Could that be the next car for DGX? (with a panel of course)

Well, if I only could find a mesh for that car somewhere...
( I think it wouldn't be as nice as some currently out there if I modeled it myself)

'Ello !
I was wondering , are there any "realistic"(Like in DGIII is a "realistic" version of the DG) versions for the shuttle-A ?

Hey Waffles,

There is the Shuttle-A2, that's just been released. It has realistic damage model, fuel management and configurable
cargo pods. If that's what you meant :)

Let's see.. Get it here:www.nestadlinn.de/orbiter/downloads/ShuttleA2v10.zip
You can also follow up on its development here:
http://orbit.m6.net/v2/read.asp?id=17979

Cheers,
Janez

It would be cool to have a plugin that allows a user to remotely damage the DG , talk to the player , or modify the
scenario over a network...

Dan, what about no DG-IV, but complete_new_ship?
I mean new model, new panels, and other "new".

Your right, I'm starting to get fed of the Deltaglider model: too small,
not enough possibilities, the bad things is that I really don't have much time
and it take a lot to make an add-on like the DGIII, modifying the DGIII panel
for a bigger whip will be all but simple, I would preffer restart from scratch.

Shirson: In case you feel like meshing:



and a more exhaustive link here with quite a few photos:
http://www.cloudster.com/Sets&Vehicles/Doppleganger/DopplegangerTop.htm

you'll not the Dove is almost like DG-III only smaller. The mothership details are not important as long as it looks
majestic like the original one.

I couldn't help myself. It's really a dream of mine :)

heh, looks nice, but rather unrealistic. Even DG-III is far fetched :) Kon-tiki.. sounds familiar? what is this?

What's the propulsion idea?

"Kon-Tiki" - name of small boat Thor Heyerdahl :)

On 1985 Mikhail Puhov public high detail interactive sci-fi story, about interpalenetary fly on small roket from Moon to
Earth -  "Way to Earth".
"Kon-Tiki" - name of small roket for short-distance fly on Moon but using for interplanetary travel.

Anyone, who have programming calculator B3-34 or Elektronika MK-56 can try it. Some programs (98 byte max)
emulated take off, landing, orbital ascent, space station docks, transfher orbit and atmospheric fly. (yes, its a true)



Kon-Tiki (rocket):
Diameter  5 m
Height 3.5 m
Dry mass 2000 kg
LOX-Kerosine main engine, propelants 3500 kg
Separate landing gear (100 kg) and engine side (1000 kg)
Isp 373s
