Has anyone added motors to OR that aren't in the list provided for you? I would like to add the larger Loki 54mm motors, i.e the 54/4000

Thank you all in advance!!

Yes...but I am not at my puter and can't remember exactly how. I had to manually enter the address/path to where the motor files go. If no one chimes in, I will get on my puter tomorrow and help ya out. Er, what operating system?

I will tell ya this, once you get to the directory, create a shortcut so you will be able to easily find the files in the future. After the third time digging and searching, I finally created a shortcut in my Rocket Stuff folder.

Have you already got the Loki motor file? If not, you can grab it from Thrustcurve.org or here:

If you are asking how?

..............First open OR...the click on OR to open preference box.

Then click on "ADD" to add a previously saved motor file.[easily download from Thrustcurve] I put on my file to be added on desktop. Just put it wherever you can find it..lol

The box opens ...go get your file and choose it..... automatically loads in OR.

Then close down OR and re-open to load it up... the little box tells you new file will not show up till you re-start OR.
I always go back and check to see.

There it is.....
