Great! Whenever i see your posts of the space simulator reminds me of what i should have done...download the game. Unfortunately, there is not much discspace for this sim. Beautifull shots! :7
It's fantastic! One of the things I wanna do after I complete my RTW trip is to actually learn to play the game! I'm a space freak and every time I see your shots, they remind me to hurry up and finish my epic journey! :D

Helios is a nuclear/chemical hybrid used for cruises to Mars and beyond, generally. It is very huge...as you can see as it dwarfs the ISS clone it is docked to.
The Moon below me is the new super hi-resolution Moon. Also huge...lol.
Jan, nice shots of the WW. It is an odd looking beast. The British seemed to enjoy making odd-ball planes that only Momma would love.
PS you can just make out Helios etc in the middle...
Basic Orbiter...even with high resolution textures isn't all too large...under 100mb. Like FS...it starts to grow to a massive size once you start adding goodies. Before long, you have another 5+GB monster living on your HD. Once you learn your way around, you'll find that Orbiter is silly easy to add things too. Sometimes there are conflicts trying to get some untested 3rd party craft to work with other 3rd party craft...but even these are rare in these later builds.
However, Orbiter pulls no punches when it comes to realism. Often it can daunt even the best pilots. Things just don't 'fly right' up there :D Needs a whole new way of thinking and planning ahead. This I find most enjoyable. I'm a fairly good at getting around local space but still can get majorly lost when heading out (or in) to the other planets.
