Was Venture Star the name of the long distance spacecraft of the movie AVATAR?

Yes, but this (the X-33 VentureStar) came first.

Also, this is one of the first add-ons for Orbiter.

The X-33 was the 1/3 scale suborbital test bed for Venturestar. Venturestar was to be the full scale version. My guess is James Cammron used the name as hommage to the failed program. Remember he used to be on the NASA Advisory board.

So I am trying to get this to work in 2016. I got it to be upright at Cape Canaveral.

Code:
vstar:Spacecraft\Spacecraft
  STATUS Landed Earth
  POS -80.6208580 28.6266020
  HEADING 182.00
  ALT 34.000
  AROT 156.016 -8.410 -178.194
  AFCMODE 7
  PRPLEVEL 0:0.600000
  NAVFREQ 480 0
  CONFIGURATION 0
  CURRENT_PAYLOAD 0
  SEQ 0 2 1.000000
  SEQ 1 -2 0.000000
END


But at Edwards I can't get it to be upright?

I had to raise the mesh up so as to be seen.
made a new base for it.
Code:
BASE-V2.0
Name = VSTAR_Edwards
Location = -117.889999 34.919998
Size = 1000
ObjectSize = 100
MAPOBJECTSTOSPHERE = TRUE

BEGIN_NAVBEACON
END_NAVBEACON

BEGIN_OBJECTLIST
MESH
	FILE vsLaunch_complex
	POS 1000 14 -5000
	ROT 0
	OWNMATERIAL
END
LPAD2
	POS 1002 0 -5119
	ROT 0
	SCALE 0
	TEX Lpad02
      NAV 128.10
END
END_OBJECTLIST

Code:
vstar:Spacecraft\Spacecraft
  STATUS Landed Earth
  POS -117.9461440 34.9109870
  HEADING 86.01
  ALT 14.020
  AROT 172.951 -64.514 -118.626
  AFCMODE 7
  PRPLEVEL 0:0.600000
  NAVFREQ 480 0
  CONFIGURATION 0
  CURRENT_PAYLOAD 0
  SEQ 0 2 1.000000
  SEQ 1 -2 0.000000
END


In both scn the CONFIGURATION is 0 which is launch.

Code:
LAUNCH_PT1=(0,1,-20)
LAUNCH_PT2=(-19.114,19,-20)
LAUNCH_PT3=(19.114,19,-20)

LAND_PT1=(0,-7.515,15.394)
LAND_PT2=(-11.03,-7.515,-11.37)
LAND_PT3=(11.03,-7.515,-11.37)

I have respect for you, Man! basically its a joke whats going on in Orbiter, sadly ( lot of the great older addons arent working, x 15, dyna soar, titans, apollo, etc, even the included space shuttle isnt working properly now.

basically when i bring this up, the regulars doesnt reply, while sci-fi series crap is being uploaded to orbithangar by the s h i t load, and on youtube everyone is talking about that kerbal crap and not this simulation!

it would be so nice to help you if i could code. its a joke that nobody helps you.

why on earth they even changed the programming language, when there isnt a hardcore coderbase, who would modify the most relevant 20-30 addons???

Well this add on was sc3. Which does work. But for some reason it wouldn't sit upright at Edwards.

But I am getting close to a beta of this with 3 different ships. For the launch we are using MS2015.

Ifr you want to help test her let me know
