Am I right?

BTW my textures have been changed a lot to fit the latest mesh uploaded via SVN. If anyone is using any previous mesh they will show a lot of mis-matchings in many areas

I have uploaded some pictures on my album "SSU Photoreal" in case you are curious. I love the level of visual detail and realism that Orbiter 2016 brought. I will post more pics with SSU mated to Donamy's wonderful ISS AtoZ. I think they will be a nice looking couple

I was referring to the creases in the doors. They should be smooth.

Those have been taken care of. I noticed them myself and dealt with them when I fixed the texture mapping around the forward area of the PLBDs.

Exactly 37 years ago tomorrow, on April 12th 1981, this wonderful piece of engineering soared to the skies for the first time.

What better occasion to post the first shots of OV-102 Space Shuttle Columbia SSU version HI RES textures?

Don't forget about the OMS pods! The OMS pod textures can be changed by adding LOMSPodTexture= and ROMSPodTexture= to the appropriate mission file.

I thought there was no way to have dedicated OMS pods for Columbia (and Challenger). How can I add them?

Just do what I wrote in the previous post. These two lines control what textures are used for the OMS pods for that particular mission. The SSU mission files are just regular ASCII text files and can be edited by any text editor.

So the STS-1 mission file would look something like this:

Code:
Name=STS-1
Orbiter=Columbia
OrbiterTexture=Columbia_original
LOMSPodTexture=PORT_OMSpod_STS1
ROMSPodTexture=STBD_OMSpod_STS1
ET=SWT
ETFRL=TRUE
SRM=SRM
LaunchSite=KSC
LaunchPad=LC-39A
MLP=1
TargetInc=40.300000
TargetLAN=0.000000
MECOAlt=116676.000000
MECOVel=7824.216000
MECOFPA=0.296000
PerformRollToHeadsUp=FALSE
OMSAssistEnable=FALSE
OMSAssistDuration=59.000000
MaxSSMEThrust=100
UseRMS=FALSE
UseKUBand=FALSE
UseSTBDMPM=FALSE
UseODS=FALSE
UseExtAL=FALSE
UseTAA=FALSE
AftTAA=FALSE
HasBulkheadFloodlights=TRUE
HasDragChute=FALSE
Bridgerails=8
PayloadZPos9=8
SILTS=FALSE
LogSSMEData=TRUE
UseCISS=FALSE
CISS_GPrime=TRUE
UseASE_IUS=FALSE
ASE_IUS_AftLocation=FALSE
InternalPRSDTankSets=2
HasEDOKit=FALSE
EDOPallets=0

That means I have to add the related textures since they do not exist in the SSU/textures folder..

Shouldn't be a problem if you include the modified mission files.

IMHO. The printing on the white tiles, should be smaller and lighter. It also looks like it is indented on the tiles, where in fact it is just printed on the surface. Nice job though.

Thanks for the feedback Donamy

The white tiles texture is taken from a real picture so the size of the printing is correct, maybe a lighter one would be better (normal map also enhances the effect). As far as the indenting effect the problem is again related to normal mapping, I am afraid there is no solution other than not using normal maps.

For the above reasons I was considering this alternate LRSI texture

There is: Just don't apply normal mapping to the labels, just the tile gaps. See what I did with the OMS pods.
