What I mean is that Elon Musk doesn't plan to include a live/dummy second stage on top of B1046 (that was waaayyy back May 2019, I don't know if this has changed)

It'll be a live second stage, just no Merlin 1D Vac. Everything needs to be exactly as it would be during a nominal F9 launch up until max q.

Thanks Kyle
It works better for me if I use 23000kg fuel reserve.
Do we know how the fairing recovery went?

You can add in Ms.Tree and Ms.Chief, if you fancy a try at chasing down the fairings :-)
The fairing autopilots won't be enabled if there is no vessel named "FRV", so you have to actually chase 'em.

Code:
Ms.Tree:Falcon9R_V12\frv
  STATUS Landed Earth
  POS -76.3000000 32.9100000
  HEADING 90.00
  ALT 0.018
  AROT 0.000 -76.300 57.090
  AFCMODE 7
  PRPLEVEL 0:1.000000
  NAVFREQ 0 0
  NET 0 0 0.0000
  BLN 0 0.0000 100 0.0 0.0 0.0
END
Ms.Chief:Falcon9R_V12\frv
  STATUS Landed Earth
  POS -76.3000000 32.8970000

Fairings unfortunately were not recovered due to high wave heights, which is why I did not include the two ships. It does work better to use 23000kg of fuel, however I think SpaceX has started using closer to 15000-18000kg of fuel for the heavier missions like Starlink.

You're probably right. My landing burn algorithm just doesn't like that shallow approach angle. I'll have to take a look when I've stopped playing around with Starship.

Thanks,
Brian
