The old "Solar Probe" add-on, recompiled for Orbiter2016 and renamed in honour of astrophysicist Eugene Parker.

The DeltaIV autopilot doesn't work for me, so manual launch. Boosters go invisible after separation, but otherwise it works well enough. Hopefully we will have a DeltaIV with autopilot capability soon :-)

I've got same ctd, I don't know how to get final stage engine to work. I was really looking forward to PSP since it's trajectory plan is amazing. I was also looking forward to answering mystery of this launch date moving (i don't understand how can they move a window this many days without significant plan changes, GA fly-byes etc)... I was following PSP site, but NASA never gives answers that we, orbinauts, are really interested about, so it's always up to us to figure out mission orbital parameters (i understand that press is not likely to ask questions like: Hey, can you give us exact MJD of breaking earth orbit, MJD and radius of first pericyth, MJD and radius of first perihel and so on... they would call security on you...) Maybe I'm the one with problem, but I can't stand these nice ladies giving 'science briefings' and treating audience like idiots.

Brian, I love your add-ons, both for Orbiter and Celestia. Really do. Regretfully, I know next to nothing about programming.

Thanks. This is what happens if you don't test on a clean installation


Quick fix: move the file
Code:
Config/Vessels/ParkerSolarProbe/star48bv_psp.cfg
out of it's "ParkerSolarProbe" sub-folder and into the general "Vessels" folder.


Now fixed and updated on OH so you can, if you prefer, simply re-download and re-install.


Cheers,
Brian

Universal Autopilot (UAP) still works for me in Orbiter 2016. That could be used for scenarios. Or recompile to Multistage2015.

It launched at 3:31 AM EDT. Thats 7:31 UTC at August 12th. I can probably do the date change to reflect this manner

Has anyone flown entire mission successfully?

Does anyone have any idea how to make use of final stage Star engine? I understand what needs to be done given this situation, but I either lack the tools or ideas to utilize them...

Who puts solid booster at final stage?

Update 180813 on OH:
Updated Parker Solar Probe scenarios for 12 Aug.launch.
(My guess it would be a two-part escape burn was completely wrong ;-)

I also noticed that the panels stow as it gets close to the sun. Was wondering if that would be included in a new version?
