Exclamation Shuttle Fleet recompile for Orbiter 2016

I had recently installed Shuttle Fleet on Orbiter 2016, but the current version for the addon is V4.8. As soon as I activated the shuttle's main engines, the spacecraft collapses before the SRBs ignited.

Shuttle Fleet does not work with Orbiter 2016. AFAIK Dave413, the Fleet developer, has no intention to update his creature for Orbiter 2016

I was trying to figure this out since BrianJ was a genius at recompiling his SpaceX addons for Orbiter 2016.

In order to recompile an addon you need to have the source code availabe. If not, there's no way to do it.

Shuttle fleet code is closed source, so unfortunately there's no way.

That plus you'd need permission to re-distribute it so others can enjoy it, too. Even if you have the code available, that doesn't mean that you are allowed to distribute updated binaries.

I know that Fred is aware of this, but like to mention it because it is surprisingly common that folks mix "source code is available" with "I can do what I want with it".

Shuttle fleet being one of the best addons in orbiter is sad but it to like the shuttle won't fly again. if a mfd could be done like afcs then the Atlantis could do most of what Shuttle Fleet did.

I am sorry but I have to say you are wrong there, the Fleet was regularly updated through the years with more functionality and dedicated MFD's added. The last published version (4.8) is by far more advanced and complex then the stock Atlantis.
A simple autopilot like AFCS would not fill the gap at all.
And BTW the Shuttle will fly again: it is called SSU!

Well that may answer an question about reusing the textures

I am am to repaint the 2016 Atlantis with I believe ST textures. and recode the Atlantis to just change the mesh.

So you get 2016 shuttles.

When you say "ST textures" what are you referring to?

Well in my 2010 textures folders. I have STS textures. Not sure where /or who did them.



But I have been able to repaint the 2016 default Atlantis with them. Not not sure if it is ok to then share them.

If you have not created them yourself, don't know where you've got them, don't know who made it, and - most important - don't know what license this content falls under, I think it is not OK to share them.
At least not publicly. I think it is OK to privately send it to some community members that work with Shuttle textures (e.g. the SSU folks) in order to identify the origin of the content.

I thought so. So what I might do is use the default atlantis. Cut/paste new names and logos as needed.

Isn't there a photorealistic repaint at the hangar? I know someone was working on it

But I think you run into sharing them.
