At long last... The OpenRocket developers are nearing the finish to get the latest update out... Here's a teaser...

There may have been a slight scaling issue... We'll just have to send him back...

WYSIWYG (I only got rid of the CP mark.)

I don't have an answer for that... I was sent the dev.jar file to test it. I found a few issues in only a few minutes. STILL However, I was able to manage to do this...

Yes, there really is a little Marvin (fin) inside there, and I only edited out the CP mark.

out on a limb...but, I would guess that they may be trying for a March release, April perhaps.

I'm super excited the devs are working with one of our boundary-pushing superusers.

Wonder if they'd consider doing a semi-formalized beta program.

Per Opening Post...
The Alien is missing his laser gun!
He needs one in each hand pointing downward for Engine Mounts.
Otherwise, it will look like bad Alien Gas...

It'll be coming from his "ears"

Some direct way to handle fins and fin tabs through boat tails without doing the fins mounted behind the body tube method?

Also, Open Rocket is awesome, and I greatly appreciate the work of those who produce it, and the beta users as well.

1) I just subscribed (finally) to the openrocket-devel mailing list. How does one become a beta tester? I think I could do a good job of that
2) Does the new version fix the Mac graphics crasher?

Would love offset fins, ie like a wing that sits on the body tube at the tangent point, like a bomarc etc....

I'd also like winglets. There's no was to sim odd rocs and several missiles without it. Like the Jayhawk, or the scorpion, or the Estes jetliner.

You can do both with the new pods implementation. It's frustrating the way it's implemented but it is possible.

My developer's version doesn't have pods enabled (or I haven't figured out how to use them) it's greyed out.

They're children of the sustainer. Try clicking on the sustainer and then add them.

Ah... I see...

Small problem, after I save the file, close it, and reopen it, it looks like this:

I have to go and reopen each of the pods, and readjust each to get it back into the correct place.

I've tried reproducing the problem but it seems to be working fine for me. Could you send me the .ork file and I'll try to see what the problem is?

Just for fun, looking at it realistically, the 3 smaller tubes would be fuel pods for the Engine.
They should not have window decals, but filling port and vent decals, IMO.
