Yes, 100% realism is impossible. The external tank is a good example of this, there are many small variations. For me the two base versions (early/late VC) are enough.

Don't know what you mean by "extended into the dash."

But the image I based the cockpit is this one.


Looks like it might be based on the 101 Enterprise:

Well and besides the 3 mfd in the aft wall no monitor and ADI was there.

And The mfd were CRT and no the full color mfds. More like the General Function on on SF.

No animated gauges. Thought maybe a 2d might be interesting. But Not really sure how to code it and I don't think you can have mfd's on them?

So going to be away for a week

Cool to know.
If the VC was fully working and you had system simulation, then yes, you'd need all the buttons.
But as it is, I still think that two VC versions (original & final) are enough

The best thing you could do, would be to make the payloadbay camera views, visible from the 2 CCTV screens, in the aft deck. That would be really sweet.

in fact it would be fantastic since earlyvc only uses 3 mfd's. could also be used 1 in aft right and 2 in aft left in back cameras.

Quick question, will this new Shuttle have aerodynamics and flight characteristics similar to or on par with Shuttle Fleet 4.8 or will you be using the parameters from the stock Atlantis?

So what is doable for the 3 mfd is this add 2 more mfd where the CCTV were.
You would need a set of buttons to set up the Camera MFD.

Might built up the frame around the screen.

So for the 10 mfd setup. I think the max mfd is 12. So one could have 2 extras in the aft. The problem for me is coding them.

As far as flight dynamics. I am using a revised Atlantis flight dynamics for IK Atlantis 2006.

Basically yes. If you want button to control the Camera MFd not sure how you do that. From the non vc can you switch to those mfd and make the changes? So in the non VC you can only select 2 mfd. So I guess you could set it up in the scn but not be able to change it in play.
But not sure how to select other mfd and change the values without the buttons?

You can set up a mouse click area. Vessel builder does it easily.

Thanks. But not sure if we can use vessel builder into the shuttle?
Maybe a VB vessel of just the CCTV and attached to the shuttle?

So we get this.

the red area is the mfd screen and yellow is where the buttons will be.

So as you can see the mfd screen is mapped out. So this was the 10 mfd Atlantis. So since all 10 spots are used. I think I would need to remap?
But for the 3 mfd oversion I can just reuse a mfd from the 10.

---------- Post added at 03:41 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:34 AM ----------

So we get this:

Looked like Camera MFD only works in D3D9.
So now every scn will need to be rewritten.
So I guess the 4 payload cameras would need to set up. The RMS camera I don't think can be set as the position and direction move

So does anyone have some code to show where the mouse is when You pressed the button. Can't get the buttons to be active.

Code:
	oapiVCSetAreaClickmode_Quadrilateral(AID_CCTV1_BUTTONS, _V(-1.009228, 2.914146, 12.2876), _V(-.9044127, 2.913743, 12.2876), _V(-1.007414, 2.906084, 12.2876), _V(-.9030017,  2.90568, 12.2876));

	// D. Beachy: register+activate MFD power buttons
	const double powerButtonRadius = 0.01; // radius of power button on each MFD
	oapiVCRegisterArea(AID_CCTV1_PWR, PANEL_REDRAW_NEVER, PANEL_MOUSE_LBDOWN | PANEL_MOUSE_ONREPLAY);

	oapiVCSetAreaClickmode_Spherical(AID_CCTV1_PWR, _V(-1.079, 3.0613, 12.412), .01);
