    Updates James Webb Space Telescope updates

    Hi, I have a hunch those predicted state vectors don't include the two MCC's that have been made already, and that JPL Horizons has been updated since then to include them, but possibly not future MCC's. Not sure. I just grabbed the vectors for MJD59606 (27 Jan 2022) and I have different...

    Project James Webb Telescope Add-on

    Check Kourou CSG 5.1 documentation for any other requirements. Check you have "JamesWebb7.msh" file in your Orbiter/Meshes/ folder. Check you have "NEWJAMESWEBB" folder in your Orbiter/Textures folder. If not - extract them from "jameswebbtest.zip" and place them manually. If using D3D9...

    Project James Webb Telescope Add-on

    In case it's of any use, here's what I'm using for the launch (zip attached to this post). Includes: My Ariane5 .cfg, .ini and guidance files (should give a usable trajectory for 12:20 UTC launch 25 Dec) Launch scenario "JWST VA256 25 Dec 2021". The recompiled JWST.dll module with updated mass...

    Project James Webb Telescope Add-on

    Thanks very much, John :-) Much appreciated (y) From the launch press kit it looks like it will be a direct insertion to escape trajectory - no parking orbit - which makes launching in Orbiter quite a bit more challenging (for me, anyway!) JPL Horizons have just put up the predicted vectors for...

    PLEASE EMAIL ME AT: [email protected] then we can communicate more easily. I will try and think of an easy way to get you started compiling .dll using MS VS 2010, and send you some infos/images etc. Best wishes and have a good holiday! A+ Brian

    I am NOT a computer professional - my only skill is making .dll for Orbiter Configuring the MS VS 2010 (or 2017) is the most difficult step, I think. When it is configured correctly I don't change it - I just add in a new .cpp file for each project (and maybe add Orbitersound.lib if required).

    If you need me to make another launch tower like ELA4 - of course, I will be happy to help :-) If you send me the mesh, .scn and .ini files (the same as we did for ELA4) I can do it. But I will also try to find a way to help you start to compile your own .dll - it will give you access to many...

    I hope life in Bordeaux is going well for you. I think the population in France is more rational than the UK - we have many Anti-vax people here, many crazies, people refuse to wear masks, etc.etc.!! Your English is very good and I can understand you no problem - I am sorry my French is very...

    Hi Jacques :) yes, I remember making the ELA4 launch tower, that was a few years ago! As for me, I am not quite as ancient as you (58) and live near Brighton on UK South Coast.

    Then you will need to link the appropriate files from the orbitersdk/lib folder etc. I can try to help you with that, but maybe someone who uses MS VS 2017 can give you better answers. Probably best way to do it is to start a thread here on the forum. I wish you Happy Holidays! BrianJ

    But - I think the best method is to try to compile the simplest .dll - ShuttlePB in the orbitersdk/samples/ folder. It will probably ask you if you want to convert to MS VS 2017 format - say yes.

    Hi Jacques, It is nice to hear from you :-) I am still using MS Visual Studio 2010 - so I'm not sure if I will be the best person to ask. Also - I can never remember how to configure MS Visual Studio 2010 ! ( i have some notes somewhere, I will look for them) You might get more help for MS...

    OHM FalconHeavy for Orbiter2016

    Updated on OH: version 211123 Added Donamy's curved grid fins Swapped exhaust texture Marg/francisdrake's F9 textures Added .cfg file option to set time-acceleration to 1 at staging events Let me know if I messed anything up along the way ;-) Cheers, Brian

    OHM FalconHeavy for Orbiter2016

    Hi, can do exhaust textures, time accel limit and grid fins - not too much work! ;-) FRV estimated position is a lot more work (have to measure fairing impact point for combinations of apogee and payload mass, then find a curve that fits!) - so, mmmm, maybe sometime. EDIT - Oh, wait a minute...
