Threading the needle: The Final Chapter

Posted 03-08-2012 at 08:55 PM by mojoey

"Freedom, Houston, we copy the master alarm. Stand by."
If could go wrong, it did. The caution and warning panel had lit up, and the buzzing noise noise was very irritating.
"Dammit Fred, reset that alarm." Said Deke, who had procured a headache from the last 20 minutes. In the sense of oxygen, they were fine...for 34 hours. The ascent window had come and gone, and would open in another 90 minutes. If Freedom didn't get off the surface by then, Possibility would...

Station attempt

I couldn't resist, and made some first model to see what I could do for a shipyard.

It features a main factory (the yellow lighted thing), a back hangar, big enough for an XR5 or maybe two (!), and a "residential wheel", which I would like to animate, obviously.

The truss in front of the factory is supposed to be some kind of tray, on which the Arrow is built and then launched.

The protruding mast along it is the control cabin, and there will...

OBSP - Progress report 1

Hey guys!

It's been a while since our last update, so I'll bring you up to speed on what's been going on behind the scenes.

We resumed work on OBSP in the last few weeks because the exams ended and we have a few exciting features we're working on.

ETF learned how to hook functions so we can introduce new features to OBSP that Orbiter normally wouldn't let us create. With that, ETF is working on bringing a custom HUD into OBSP. That'll allow vessels to...

A remarkable achievement (and a nice DG tale!)

Well, here's something that I don't think most of you have done:
A full reentry: from deorbit, through EI, to constant drag to the HAC and a perfect landing.
There's a catch to it however: all unpowered (except the deorbit burn of course!) and WITHOUT ADDON MFDS >>AT ALL!<<
Have you ever done that? Well I don't wanna be rude, but I don't think you have (;

The SAS upgrade has been well received, it's now time to pause and think about the next steps.

As I said, I'll keep on improving the addon, using it to learn the API.

Something that comes to my mind are panels, to leave this "unix console" feeling at the main cockpit.

While reading some old posts on the addons request forum, I saw that someone once talked about making the Arrow factory
(as it is theorically built in orbit).
