This is a known bug that will be fixed in version 2.

You can sometimes fix this problem by deleting all the trails.

I did... 2 twice... Nothing worked, and let trail number down, and the trails don't get shorter, until you reach 0 in which they dissapear.

Try setting trails according to some body or to space. Set as center.

Reset the system if it does not work.

All hail proj-path! ;D
Nobody cares about the past - looking into the future is much more exciting, bigger engine and it can shoot across the water like that. ;D
:P
Ok, delete the last part of the sentence if you want to.

What??? Bigger engine shoot across water??? Huh?? I like past, so you can compare orbits, projected path is always off, especially if you set another object to center.

Sorry, the sentence I was about to make just reminded me too much of a joke about Noah's Ark (where a speedboat is... Much more exciting ;D).

Anyways, yes, if I really have to admit it I do use trails sometimes...  :-[ :-[

Hmm, sometimes I just wonder what causes bugs like this, straight trails... :P

Trails look a how much their angle has changed in order to know they need to make a new segment (since all trails are made of individual line segments. This bug, straight trails, happened because one of the values used to determine the angle became a non-value (NaN = Not a Number) and every check also returned a bad value which kept it from making a new segment.

Aha, yes I've seen NaN before, thanks for the explanation. :)

They are probably are moving forwards into space instead of curving around the planet.
