Re: [nbos] Space Elevator Scripting

Loving the script, just takes the grunt work out of things! It doesn't
seem to like making elevators for moons though, even mars sized moons
of gas giants. Is this something to do with proximity to the primary?
I get a "hill sphere" error message so I tried adding a more earthlike
rotation to the moons but to no avail.
