Maneuvering the spaceship
« on: May 21, 2018, 12:09:34 AM »
Hi, guys!

I am using the PC version of space simulator. For some reason I cannot maneuver the spaceship. I have numlock off and I am using the numeric keypad. Any ideas? Thanks!!

             Cheers,
         Vincent

Hi Vincent,

Could it be because there is an autopilot on? When an autopilot is on, there is a green dot on the tab.

Hi, Apollo girl! Even with the green dot by the autopilot is off, the spaceship won’t maneuver! What is happening here?! Thanks!

The best scenario to test the keypad control is the Apollo 8 Earth Parking Orbit scenario. Can you try to see if you can control it there? The launch scenario is atypical in a lot of ways so you won't be able to move the Saturn V on the launchpad.
