IMFD Orbital Program[edit]

The Orbital Program can help you change your orbit if you are trying to, or it can help you find a target in space. It has three modes: Circularize, Match Velocity, and Find Target.

  • Note: PG cycles through Circularize, Match Velocity, and Find Target modes. MOD and PRJ are ineffective in this program.

Circularize Orbit Mode:

This Mode will make your orbit a perfect circle. Center the cross until it turns grey and fire your engines until dV reaches zero. You may have to readjust your attitude several times, as the first time you center the cross may not be perfect. Or just use Autoburn.

Match Velocity Mode

Use this mode to match your velocity with a target. Very useful for station keeping, or for intercepting the Martian Moons.

Find Target Mode

Rotate towards the cross. When the cross is in the center of the crosshairs and it turns grey, you should be looking directly at the target.
