Also remember, if you're on a LINUX platform to set the permission bit for running the file as an executable.

I am wondering if there is a way to show the velocity at laundry ejection in the simulation line. I go into the plot and can check it out but I was hoping there was a way to add it to the data listed when you run the simulation. I did notice that it is set to warn you at 75 or 100 I think, but that seems a bit high to me.

OpenRocket 1.1.9 was released on 11/24/11. News blurb from the OpenRocket website below:

Quote:
24.11.2011: Version 1.1.9 is released!

For this version Richard Graham has implemented geodetic computation methods, which take into account the curvature of the Earth and the coriolis effect. The computation method is selected by the Geodetic calculations option in the simulation options. It's not (yet) a full spherical computation model, but should be accurate enough for almost all sub-orbital needs.

Doug Pedrick has also enhanced the printing system with the ability to print fin positioning guides, transition templates and nose cone profiles. Other smaller enhancements and bug fixes are also included.

A nice feature of the new version is the translation into German, French and Spanish!

It works fine on my PC.

New version of Open Rocket now available.

Quote:
10.3.2012: Version 12.03 for desktop and Android is released!

In this release the version numbering scheme has been changed. From now on the version number is YY.MM indicating the year and month of the release. Bug fix releases are indicated by an added ".1".

This also marks the first release for Android devices. In this first release you can open files and examine existing simulations, stability data and motor files. The Android port is thanks to work by Kevin Ruland.

Enhancements in the desktop version include saving designs in RKT format thanks to Doug Pedrick, freeform fin set import form images by Jason Blood, configurable stage separation events, guided help tours and displaying the computed motor designation class. The application has also been translated to Italian by Mauro Biasutti and Russian by the Sky Dart Team.

There is a Beta version available including even a 3D viewer comparable to RocSim:

It works fine on my machine even itīs Beta.

Very nice! It works!

Wow. Just, wow. Hadn't worked with the new OpenRocket 12.03 until yesterday, and was pleasantly surprised to find Deployment Velocity on the simulations table (I asked for that a long time ago when the support forums were elsewhere). But then, I tried the PDF generator.

WOW. I like it. Just simmed a rocket for my daughter, 2x18mm, almost 30" long, and the parts list alone blew me away.

The only things I'd ask for are (a) DV with the sign, so I know if it's going up or down, and (b) some way to instantly reverse the fins (so the trailing edge becomes the leading edge and vice versa). But these are very, very minor things.

I agree, the new OpenRocket 12.03 save as PDF feature is great. I like the clean lay out of the parts list and flight details with the motor table, especially the fin marking guide templates! It even provides launch lug placement marks. Very nice.

I've been using the program a little more lately and I really like it.

OpenRocket is up to version 12.09. Includes the 3D viewer previewed in the beta version.

OpenRocket for Android is also at 12.09, you can now create and run simulations ... great for when you are 'in the field' and conditions don't match what you had 'simmed' at home.
