Thanks for digging into the msh-files!
Found it now. Emissve settings was at 0%, but when I switched to emissive color it showed a dark grey instead of pure black. Probably I have played around with this long time ago and forgotten about it. Problem between keyboard and chair ...


Orion with solar panels swiveled forward during maneuver burn.

Mission Orion! Looks like a cool game. Has Skylab II.

It even has a realistic cockpit, according to NASA videos.

So, this pic of Orion has the solar panels swiveled forward. Is that so that they are not contaminated by flying propellant? I thought that there was something about catching more light, but you have the solar absorbent surfaces faced away from the sun.

This will allow you to fly this Orion with the SLS

The forward swivel of the solar panels is mentioned in the European Service Module (ESM) description. This configuration is to reduce mechanical loads on the solar wing panels during maneuvers. The spec mentions +55 upward canting during OMS engine burns, -60 downward during the iCPS TLI-burn.
[iCPS = interim Cryogenic Propulsion Stage, is the second stage of the SLS]

Only one thing: the scenario for the last Orion MPCV/SLS launch didn't work. SLS didn't lift off the ground (giving me a great chance test the LAS ), but it was really weird, like the MPCV was too heavy, or something. Did you run into anything like that, and did you fix it in this scenario.

(P.S. Thanks for the scn, but how do you move the solar panels?)

Weird. So you applied thrust and released it from the tower. Did it drop or go up?

Interestingly I experience also sometimes the sitting SLS. In the original scenario provided the SLS launches. But the moon is far south, so I can not make an in-plane moonshot. As soon as I change the date in the scenario file, the SLS keeps sitting on the ground until most of the booster fuel is spent ...

For the swiveling solar panels: This will be in the next version.

Drop. It was after I had been firing enough.

Weird. I
F3 to sls core, Apply full thrust, f3 to slstower, Press "space" and the launch
The ship climbs into space.

How much thrust does she produce? I get 7.44M

I'll check, but so far, I am doing everything the same, except I use the dialog box for Launch.

** New version 06 on the front page. **

What's new:
Solar panels are now activated with the [ S ] key only (no Ctrl), as Ctrl-S is reserved for scenario quicksave. Solar panels can be swiveled forward to protect them during maneuvers. [ S ] key toggles this.

Hatch door opens and closes with [ K ]

Changed the docking orientation back to upright x, y, z = (0,1,0).
This leads to heads-down docking at ISS port 1, but gives the correct instrument readout during approach.

Code re-written to remove redundancies. Please report if the the vessel behaves strange at configuration changes (separation from launcher, SM discard, chute opening).

Ok docking maneuver correctly, dockingMFD correctly, attitude control maneuvers works well, begins to approach the veteran predecessor wnm-ctv-atv2.1. Thanks and encouragement to continue their development.
