Prograde gets unstable while using time compression
« on: July 13, 2016, 03:20:45 PM »
Hello to all,

when I'm pressing "prograde" and turn on the time compression, the ship is tumbeling all the time. If I reset it, and wait a moment till the ship is stable and turn on time compression again, the ship stays stable.
There must be a bug in time compression mode...

Fixed in next version .  ( basically , when using time compression the spacecrafts' attitude mode will set to killrot /atthold . ) . Otherwise is impossible to compute the RCS burns with such huge timesteps.

besides ,this will avoid running out of RCS when using time compression .
