Real stars! Yes the stars in the sky are now accurate and you can control how many you see. You can also hover your mouse over them for more information.
Improved texturing and lighting.
Rendezvous and Docking has been improved so that large angle docking attempts will no longer work.
Registration number is 'remembered' in system registry for easier updates on future releases.
Rendezvous and Docking capabilities. There are now two scenarios for orbital flight: ascent and descent. In the descent configuration you begin docked with the CSM and can undock to prepare for powered descent. The ascent flight has you about a mile from the CSM in the LM ascent stage as you rendezvous and dock..
There are some small changes in the user interface as well as numerous small bug fixes.
The CSM and LM models have been tweaked.
Look over the help file for details on the orbital missions and rendezvous and docking procedures.
