I don't know if you can directly switch from OPS 1 (MM104) to OPS 3 (MM301)
You should be able to go directly to MM301 after ET SEP (when MM automatically transfers to 104) so you can skip 105/106/201
It is strange though that when I cicle through the modes as soon as I transition from MM302 to 303 the sim crashes... could it be a D3D9 issue?

This is the error message I get (and it happens also running D3D7)

That appears to me sometimes, and although I never checked it I'd say it is related to the current trajectory of the vehicle and the selected landing site. I usually press ignore twice and it keeps running without crashing.

Is the cloudy structure at the upper edge of the plasma cone a nose module right thruster firing?

FRCS firing.
Currently we don't have neither the RCS nor the GPC setup to fire specific RCS jets.

On the danger of telling something you know already - the whole forward RCS module isn't used at all by the Aerojet DAP (my understanding is that nominally the propellant gets dumped before entry for security reasons).

Okay - sorry then. It wasn't entirely clear to me from your answer what you meant (I had a 'by module' code before a 'by jet' code).

Not a problem.
AFAIK currently we have an idealized RCS setup, and the RCS plumes "trick" the user into thinking this or that RCS jet is firing.
The lack of individual RCS thrusters, correct propellant sources, proper command path to fire them and GPC code to decide what to fire prevents us from doing more than a basic rotation and translation.

First TAL abort with SSU completed today. Used the STS-101 launch scenario modifying the Inc to 46.2 (allowing an acceptable Delta azimut for Moron AFB). Tried a challenging one with 1 Engine Out right at the first TAL opportunity, 2 minutes and 25" into the flight (right after the "2 ENGINE TAL" MCC call. Flew manually from Eng fail to post ET SEP, then re-engaged the DAP after entering OPS304 with Moron in SPEC50 and closing the ET umbelical doors. The DAP made a beautiful flawless reentry all the way to the HAC RWY20.
When subsonic I took over manually again and landed.
Great machine, and a lot of fun! Thanks SSU team
