-"OrbiterSound Config" icon on desktop
-Click "SoundConfig.exe" in Orbiter folder
-"click to launch the config program" button on installer
-Read doc "About Mp3"

If you missed all that please write your adress
I'll take a plane and set it for you. :badsmile:

It's not an "annoying music" it's a demo of the embedded
Mp3 player, up to you to add more musics, change it,
change playing mode or set it off. Of course doing all
that remain mysterious until now... (hint: "rtfm")

Welcome btw.. ;)

Dan

Hey Ben =

I almost cried the first time I switched to external view in outer space. it was so beautiful. About 3 minutes later I
almost cried ... it was so annoying ... then I rtfm and pointed it to my extensive MP3 (self burned) library and it's no
longer repetitive. There is a shoutcast station called Cryo Sleep. It's zero beat environment music. I've captured 8-12
hours of it and that is what DG4 now plays ....  :music:

I like Era and a little Manheim Steamroller. Lots of cool music to use.

Hmmm. What is the major differences between Celestia and Orbiter? I have not poked around with Celestia before, but it looks
interesting.

I apologize if this is getting "off topic"

Celestia is a planetarium. Orbiter is a space-flight simulator.

Use Celestia to look at star systems and planets, etc etc etc. Use Orbiter to fly in them.

Thanks for the advice. I think I may download Celestia and play with it a little. It looks very interesting.

sunshine135 -

The thing about Celesta that I really enjoyed was the shear distances we're talking about. You can "fly" out to a
galaxy at the end of your view then do it again, and again, and again. Then about the point at which you've run out
look back and Sol and get a distance estimate.

Another interesting view - pick your favorite constellation. Turn on the outline feature for the constellations, view that
same constellation from another point several million light years to away. The constellation no longer looks familiar.

Just neat.... :prof:

James .. in Orbiter you can't fly to 99.99999999% of what you can explore in Celesta. But you're correct. It's just a
planetarium program like Stellarium - another cool, free planetarium program.

I know, I know... It's a bit of a pitty, that.

That gives me an idea! Maybe if someone made a super-fantastic-huge-massive "solar system" incorperating loads of
stars (copies of the sun) we could all try to fly to Alpha Centurai and only get 0.00000000001% of the way (rounded
up) before the lone pilot died of lack of oxygen. Still...

Has anyone seen Deep Space Explorer? It's very similar to Celestia but has a spaceship interface that lets you fly to your
destination. No real spaceship like you have in Orbiter. It's just a HUD for the planetarium but it is capable of thousands
of times C.

I got it before I found Celestia and Orbiter. It's a little overpriced too but I didn't know I had a choice. It was that or
space shooters for me.


@James.Denholm

That's been discussed several times. The only drawbacks are that Orbiter doesn't handle very large distances well. Get about
half a light year out and Orbiter starts CTDing, locking up or has unstable camera views. There's also only one source of
light in Orbiter and that's the central sun. You can make a planet/sun but it's just a white ball and looks like a white ball
not a sun and any light you get will only be from the central sun. Binary systems are available but that's just a binary sun
texture not binary gravity or light sources.
