In case y'all haven't noticed, DeltaV 2 is out

With SOIs, the real solar system and what amounts to maneuver nodes adjustable in both velocity and time, its basically a web KSP! http://deltav.corpsmoderne.net/
Does not work on IE, works on Chrome and Safari.
$1 = 100¢ = (10¢)^2 = ($0.10)^2 = $0.01 = 1¢ [1]
Always check your units or you will have no money!

Neat! I flew to the moon, then realized I had all the fuel I wanted, and flew to Jupiter!

Then I looked a Jupiter for a while... and crashed into it. (Jupiter had it coming)

I tried it a bit before going to bed yesterday. Didn't manage to do much, however, since it was about midnight.

Either way, I only have one complaint about it, and that's the fact that rigor is hard to achieve. Apart from that, however, it's neat.

If you want to be more accurate, remember the tip for phase angles; when going from inner planet to outer, draw a tangent to your planet's orbit at your current position, pointing prograde. Where it intersects the outer orbit is where the outer planet should be.
Or http://abrhmsanchez.github.io/ksp/ for more exact phase/ejection angles, or use the ultimate protractor.
If you aren't precise enough with the burn amount, try adjusting its time for a few seconds. It doesn't get all the way, but it works a bit more accurately.

Guys!
Well, first, I remembered you can perform ultraprecise burns. Do a large burn, but don't burn all the way. Then, run for a few seconds, and zoom out a lot. Start a burn, and without ever zeroing it, zoom in a lot. This makes the burn very small. I got a Neptune - Jupiter - Neptune sequence this way, without using a single burn past earth escape.

Also here's some stuff I've created:

http://deltav.corpsmoderne.net/dv2.html ... 0b53c2d287
http://deltav.corpsmoderne.net/dv2.html ... 312d910d95

Also I realized today that since the game runs on javascript, you easily can locally edit the JS code to add planets and moons of your choice! I've gotten "Minmus" (another moon), a moon of the moon, "Ablate" (a Moho that is very close to the sun), "Comet" (a comet with a period of ~257 years), and a Jupiter near where the asteroid belt would be, with Mars orbiting it.
Not really sure about copyright issues, so I won't post the code here, though I assume the creator would let people mod stuff like KSP. Of course, I didn't save the code anyway :P

Only capitalized for our Moon. If you're saying "a moon of [insert name of planet, other than Earth, here]", then it isn't capitalized, unless it's the name of that planet's moon.

But wasn't he referring to The Moon?
