efaardvark Posted April 25 Share Posted April 25 Due to recent events I felt like spending the evening doing some KSP. So I got a couple of those "match the orbit" contracts. This is a career game so retiring multiple contracts per launch is desirable. One of the orbits was equatorial and one was polar and much higher but no biggie. Built and launched a suitable vehicle. Matched the equatorial orbit and then went for the polar. Got the vehicle's apoapsis touching the contract orbit's ascending node easily enough, then tried for a combo plane change plus periapsis-matching maneuver at the Ap for the finisher. This game install is unmodded so I had to fiddle with the @%@$# built-in maneuver node gadget quite a bit to get the nearly 90-degree inclination change AND the matching periapsis. Finally did manage a perfect match however, then looked at the resulting dV.. 666.0 meters per second. I have a bad feeling about this one. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
