Description
A three-stage rocket with semi-auto orbit achievement

To make this work you must edit Environment.sbc (Steam\steamapps\common\SpaceEngineers\Content\Data\Environment.sbc)

and change
<SmallShipMaxSpeed>100</SmallShipMaxSpeed>
to
<SmallShipMaxSpeed>1200</SmallShipMaxSpeed>
or more
(this increases the max speed for small ships)
So!
This is a conventional-ish 3-stage rocket.

To launch it, you have to put it down using the transport vehicle, and get in, you then:
Press 1 to launch, an overriden gyro will take care of the trajectory.
When the first stage burns out, press 2 to separate, and engage 2nd stage.
When the 2nd stage burns out, you should be in orbit! Press 3 to detach from the 2nd stage.

Do not turn on dampners, or you will not reach / fall out of orbit.

The savefile has been edited to increase the planets gravity to 1.5 and decrease gravity falloff from 7 to 1, so this craft will not work on any other world than this one (or one with similar edits)
