I have been trying your updates and want to thank you for all the time you've put into this - great work. I have not been able to get the spin tables to work or the release of the satellites. - I was able to raise and lower the IUS support though.

One thing I noticed was that the RCS didn't function - only in translation mode. I don't believe you needed to change it at all as one could simply disable the RCS once the Shuttle is into the atmosphere - then you have wing surface control. - Is it possible to return the RCS back to it's original function?

Many thanks!

Thanks

So on the rcs.
I will fix that:
Code:
ATMPRESSURE = GetAtmPressure();
	if (ATMPRESSURE >.1)//in atmosphere so use control surfaces
	{
		//EnableRCS(true);
		SetADCtrlMode(7);//set control surface enable
		(SetAttitudeMode(0));//no rcs
	}
	else {
		//in space
		SetADCtrlMode(0);//disable control surfaces
		(SetAttitudeMode(1));
		(SetAttitudeMode(2));
	}
this is what I have.

So on the spin table does the satellite spin. I tried to figure out the rotation speed and then to know it on the hud

I am able to open the satellite pods on STS-5 - but no spinning and the only way to release is to go to the rms dialogue and eject them. On STS-6 I am able to raise the IUS table - but not release - I must go to the RMS table and eject. Also when the TDRS is in free flight, after the engine finishes burning - the TDRS goes flying off on eject - no slow animation.

Many thanks again for all your work - is great to have a working Shuttle fleet again. Is there a launch scen for STS-5? Also a Challenger skin?

Just wondering - take care!

That is why the display is needed. Sure I can add deploy ready but I was trying to follow the Sf where the rpm and angles were displayed. But couldn't figure how to get the angles and rpm of the attachments.


I will add a sts 5 launch and challenger.

Many thanks - looking forward to trying the STS-5 launch and Challenger. Also enjoying your Chang-e!

So try this for sts5 launch. It isn't too hard to alter the scn. Just need to add the MS2015 stuff.

So each different flight needs a cfg for guidance.

Wow - thanks Gattispilot - works great. I now understand how you've put together the launch sequence - thanks for this! I've been trying differnet payloads from the old SF and they fit beautifully. One more ask, if possible - to change the rcs code in the latest version of the SPACESHUTTLE2016D.dll back to the original rcs so that it will work with the tilt table. What would I name a Challenger skin to make it work with your Shuttles? Or do you have one?

Many thanks - been having a great time with your efforts!

Thanks. That was the goal. A lot of reverse engineering.
Try this for sts 6 launch and challenger.
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Tk...CVitIrE2jp1sqP

The next changes I think I can do is just add something like IUS ready for deploy,.....Satellite ready for deploy.

With out the display of the angle and rpm it is hard to tell when to release

On the IUS. It should be just geting the sin and sos? and that give the angle. But it wasn't working.

So rather than showing the angle it might show moving ius to 28 degrees. when it gets there ius at 28 and so forth. At the end show Ius at 60 degrees ready to deploy

Same for the others

This is great stuff - just tried it and it's nice to see Challenger in orbit again!
- the RCS - how does one change from liner to rotational - doesn't seem to work with the last version of the SPACESHUTTLE2016D.dll - but was fine in earlier versions.
Thanks again- wonderful to have the full suite of Orbiters and payloads.

Thanks. Try this dll:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1H1...MohhI1w0jK6QQj

it should fix the rcs issue. It has on the HUD so F1 view the IUS status.

The only issue is it didn't go away when IUS deployed
Code:
		if (USEIUS == 1){
			char cbuf[255];
			//tilt of ase/IUS
			//sprintf(oapiDebugString(), " tipx %f tipy %f tipz %f", arm1_tip[1].x, arm1_tip[1].y, arm1_tip[1].z);

		//	if (tilt == 1)tiltvalue = .6;  //first step
		//	if (tilt == 3)tiltvalue = 1.0;  //2nd step
			//phi = phi + .001;//move up second step
		//	if (tilt == 1)		phi = (phi + .001);//move up
		//	if (tilt == 2)		phi = (phi - .001);//move down
		//	if (tilt == 4)		phi = (phi + .001);//move down



			if ((tilt == 1) && (phi < tiltvalue)){

			sprintf(cbuf, "IUS moving to first stop");
			skp->Text(hps->W / 3, hps->H / 5, cbuf, strlen(cbuf));
		}
			if (tilt == 3) {

				sprintf(cbuf, "IUS at first stop");
				skp->Text(hps->W / 3, hps->H / 5, cbuf, strlen(cbuf));
			}
			if ((tilt == 4) && (phi < tiltvalue)) {

				sprintf(cbuf, "IUS moving to second stop");
				skp->Text(hps->W / 3, hps->H / 5, cbuf, strlen(cbuf));
			}

			if (tilt == 5) {

				sprintf(cbuf, "IUS ready to deploy");
				skp->Text(hps->W / 3, hps->H / 5, cbuf, strlen(cbuf));
			}

			if (GetAttachmentStatus(sat_attach))//ius deployed so clear ius info
				sprintf(cbuf, "                             ");
			skp->Text(hps->W / 3, hps->H / 5, cbuf, strlen(cbuf));
		}

Works great!

Tilt table - good
RCS - good
IUS - good
TDRS - good

Thanks - wonderful addon - we now can use most, if not all the old Payloads and have an early shuttle program!
