Release Notes

WARNING - Previous versions did not put the moon burner core in the right place. It would offset from the center in the X and Y axis the specified amount, making the offset root(2) times larger than it should be. It now only offsets on one axis, making the value correct.

Running on OSX

MotorSim uses Java 1.6, which is not currently the default under Mac OSX. Apple does include Java 1.6 on most systems. Run this command:

/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framork/Versions/1.6/Commands/java -jar MotorSim-1.0-RC1.jar
