So I've been (off and on) obsessed with Kerbal Space Program for the couple years or so.
As my mastery of game mechanics and orbital mechanics has grown, I've gotten fussier about my missions. I'm no longer happy to merely get a probe to wherever, I want to get there in style, via an efficient trajectory, minimal waste and orbital debris, and as much launch platform re-use as possible.
This can be very (real life) time consuming, especially using spaceplanes where you have to carefully manage your ascent and be hypervigilant during the descent and landing.
Since KSP is an enormous nerd magnet of course someone has modded in a scripting language, and of course I've started to write my own autopilot routines.
