Graham
It is with great sadness that I have to announce that Graham Kennedy, my brother and author of this site, has passed away at the age of 50.

Last Thursday he was admitted to the local hospital were tests showed that he had metastatic cancer. A secondary infection was affecting his breathing and causing very low blood pressure. The doctors say that the infection flared early this morning and he died peacefully at approximately 9:45am. He had tested negative for Corona Virus.

His Dad, myself and my wife were able to visit him on Friday despite the lockdown. He will be greatly missed.

Orbital office size update
The orbital office from TMP has a new height, 210 m. Thanks to our forumites, especially AlexMcpherson79, for pointing out the problem. We've also re-scaled the Regula One height so that the main modules of each are approximately the same.

Buttons and Sub-headings
Previously we have had pages with multiple buttons in the header such as "Notes" and "Images" on weapon pages. We then had a sub-heading on the page to say which option you were looking at. For example "Notes" on the notes page, as so:


Notes Images

Weapon


Notes


Notes here


This seemed a little redundant and so we have combined this into a single simpler system. We have retained the buttons and removed the sub-headings, but, now we make the button for the current page show in red. This gives a very clear indication of which page you are on and saves a little space as there is no need for a separate sub-heading, leaving more room for content. This is useful on all platforms but more so on mobile devices with limited screen space. The above example would now look like this:


Notes Images

Weapon


Notes here
