Surface bases (or “spaceports”) are launch and landing sites on the surface of planets or moons, usually equipped with launchpads or runways, for vertical and horizontal liftoff and/or landing. Each surface base is defined via its own configuration file. When Orbiter loads a planet configuration, it scans all surface base definitions for the planet and creates the corresponding bases.

The standard Orbiter installation features the following default surface bases:

Default bases for Earth[edit]
