This is just with made up numbers since I haven't hooked it into the VM yet, but still. I also need to optimize for fuel consumption (7688 units, in this case). By I can hit an arbitrary moving target fairly squarely now.

Debugging my VM this afternoon was frustrating when it turned out that the error was in the specification. On the other hand, I wrote a nifty little decompiler thing.

Go, go, go!

We've got all of the Hohmann problems solved, but we've got some way to go on Meet and Greet. I'm happy with our VM and decompiler -- we've hardly had to touch them since we started working on the individual problems, and that's a good feeling. Our visualization stuff is pretty primitive, though. I imagine yours is awesome-looking.

Actually, my visualization consists of dumping out the data in text form and plotting it with GnuPlot. Primitive, but it works. I tend to try to avoid making custom tools if there's an off-the-shelf solution that I can adapt (and particularly in cases like this where the development time is critical.)
