Last updated: 100111
Shukra Venus Balloon Station is a manned facility in the Earth region of the Venus atmosphere, maintained up there by aerostatic means.
Incomplete, development unlikely.
-Files and running guide:
Available on OH:
Unpack into Orbiter directory.
Shukra is UMMU compatible, installing UMMU addon is highly recommended. See http://orbiter.dansteph.com
OF thread for bug reports and discussion:
-Collision physics specs and known bugs:
The landing happens if relative velocity is less than 0.5 m/s.
The station's location is fixed once the time accel goes above 10x, other time it is in free-float.
Landing on a station with time accel above or equal 10 is certain to create bugs.
