Hi Thierry,

Many thanks for your video guide which I have been trying to following. Are you using the desktop or IOS version. I find that when clicking on Saturn to make fine adjustments, and then using Delta-V, the software crashes and I get a message saying Hull and Crew destroyed. Do you have any suggestions as to how to overcome this?

Graeme

The actual message is Total Loss of Hull and Crew

yes it'happens when i put a fine adjustement which put me inside the planet target, not sure of this, then it crash, i often save my orbit planner session before clicking on apply. i could not get to go to pluto till today.

When I follow your tutorial, I get as far as accelerating towards Saturn. When I am reasonably close I switch to orbital planner but with it set to Saturn I find that the eccentricity is in the hundreds of thousands (over 600,000). If I try to reduce this to less than 1 it says that I don't have enough rule. If I try to continue to accelerate towards Saturn, it starts to get away from the spacecraft. Any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong?

Glow, the message is " enough rule " or , enough Fuel ?  Enough fuel , i've already seen that. i have often 2.3% fuel remaining when i have finished the saturn injection, sign that the fuel consuption is high. You can see that on the main MFd, there is a line about it.
This is all the fun about this game, and the actual difficulty of space flight. I have the same problem today with my flight to pluto.

If u have saturn visible, try to fly to it without orbit planner, and with time compression. Dunno why but the fuel remain stable. U see saturn going to the side , u stop the time compression, you aim your spaceflight again to saturn and repeat the manoeuver.

Thierry - sorry it was 'enough fuel'. I have now managed to get into close orbit around Saturn. I agree that this is part of the fun of the game. Thanks for your help.

when i've put orion in saturn 's rings, i was happy as neil armstrong.

One of the tip is to put the apogee larger than the saturn path, and a little before saturn, so , when orion is floating after the apogee, it goes back to the earth and closer to saturn, as saturn is counter clockwise and orion is clockwise if my remembering is good.
