Thanks. I'm currently working on the pipes that goes from the top of the RSS(the so called "PCR hood") and connects with the RSS truss structure. Then I'll work on the so called "triple flips" which are part of the Orbiter Weather Protection(OWP) system. They're located on the side of the RSS that covers the port side of the orbiter right next to the Orbiter Access Arm and White Room.

If you want to help out, you could always model what I call the "Midlevel Access Platform Unit" or MAPU of the FSS.

I can send the meshes I'm using as placeholders.

Donamy: Could you maybe make 4 vertical torque tubes for me? They're used to provide torque to the payload bay doors when they're operated at the pad. When they're not used, they're attached to brackets on the RSS Payload Changeout Room doors.

Photo of the lower two torque tubes have been attached. Color is yellow.

OK, thought you might wanted to do it as the "orbiter contractor". Maybe you want a shot at trying to get the FSS OWP panel animation?

Lightbulb Launch Complex 39 development

Here's some fresh screenshots of a textured RSS. If take a close look you can see the vertical torque tubes attached to the PCR doors.

Here's a few fresh screenshots. Most work today has been on getting the back of the RSS done. I will soon resume work on the rest of the Payload Changeout Room.

For the FSS/RSS, I'm aiming for an ECD of Wednesday. Probability of making that date: 70%

So Urwumpe, could you make a very simple DLL to support a early use by May 31?

Donamy: Could you maybe make a metal grating texture for the RSS catwalks that has the following pattern on it?

New screenshots. Work has mainly focused on getting the Y+ wing cover panel on the RSS correct.

I also completed the upper -Y wing cover panel and have textured it. I have also started early work on the Orbiter Mid-Body Umbilical Unit or OMBUU. Work will now resume on the lower -Y wing cover panel.

Here's a programming question: How do you want the the various service arms and RSS? In their retracted state, or in their extended state? Also when I make the various catwalks, should I add the pad lights?

I would say, we make the retracted state the 0 state. That is just a matter of convention, but this way, the standard state could be the state without a shuttle on the pad.

So when I check in the meshes, the RSS should be in the park position and the OAA, GVA and GH2 VA in the retracted states?

Will we be modeling the inside of the "white room" on the gangway?
