   13.08.2008 - Shukra description

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
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.

-Keyboard controls:

Landing vessel:
. - engage wheel arrest

To move, set ROT or OFF mode
Motion as in ground mode, secondary - ADWS
Airlock B is on.
E - action button

Alt+C - Stow/Retract landing strip
Alt+V - Stow/Retract probe
Alt+B - Cycle dropper
Numpad + - Raise station
Numpad - - Lower station

VC Camera navigation:
K move forward
I move backwards
J turn left
L turn right
U Return to default location

In Hindu mythology, Shukra, son of Bhrigu, is the god of Venus and guru of the Asuras, or demons.

This is incredible. Who would have thought of a flying airbase :)
