Idea: delta-v and pork-chop diagrams
« on: July 14, 2015, 01:59:45 PM »
This is an idea for a feature I would find very interesting. Universe Sandbox is very scientifically accurate, so I thoght it would be nice to have a possibility to calculate delta-v maps between planets and moons of the system and maybe even pork-chop plots. Something like this:

It would be very useful for anybody who intents to model a star system for his science fiction novel (if there are low-tech spaceships), or is just interested in worldbuilding.

Anyway, this is just an idea. Otherwise the game is great, thank you very much for developing it!
