Open Orbit is a free realistic and modular spacecraft simulator. The purpose is to let the user experience orbital space flight in a realistic manner.
The package that this read me is part of is the source distribution, this readme will give you pointers to where you find manuals, build instructions, documentation and so forth. This document should be used as an entry point for you, in order to help you get familiar with the open orbit source code, build procedures, plugin development and so forth.
The goal is to have the documentation written in Emacs org-mode syntax. This enables us to firstly read the docs as is, and secondly to publish the docs into HTML, PDF and other formats.
