I actually had a bit of free time recently and decided to jump back into the HD. Nothing spectacular, just doing some additions based on P1

So now they work, they are automatic based on the bay doors. I also added lights for the OMS and Main engines....

CSAP update

Posted 12-19-2010 at 12:26 PM by Voyager

Twenty minutes ago, at Aurora Launch Platform, the James Madison lifted off into orbit. After first stage seperation, the second stage had an engine failure upon achieving 130km. Due to the failure, the James Madison has a base orbit of 150x220km. With stage one of the mission planned, the flight crew is on standby for their Antares-SR Washington.
Second Update will be in 12 hours after the launch of Washington.

(Also, anyone ever play Buzz Aldrin's Race into Space)
