if so. I can animate them open at 60 degrees? But are them open on launch?


I may leave the HD pads as is except add the part for burnt tank

You want them open at 180 degs, inward, while attached to the tank.

Good morning all,

In fact the hatches are the closing hatches under the Shuttle of the connection system of the pipes of the external tank (ET) they are opened towards the inside of 180 and are closed after the jettisoning of the tank.

Like this:


I guess one can check visually if they are open or not?

I will add a line to the launch scn for this.

Will with that I need to redo the tank meshes. As on my the fuel lines don't extend into the open area.

Added the ctrl J for external fuel hatches. The hi def et and srb may needs some work as far as scns.

Hopefully got everything. Reorganized the scn. Added a UARS texture folder to ease install

So I installed this first and added the sf,.... and skiped files already there.

Do we have some good images of the IRIS and LAGEOS Apogee Stage (LAS).
I made some crude meshes:



textured the ships

Found a higher definition image from spacefacts.de

Also, in the same website, LAGEOS-2 is painted silver, rather than gold as seen in LAGEOS-1

Yes, I can find any drawings. In the press kit it mentioned.:
Quote:
The Space Vision System uses a Shuttle TV camera to monitor a pattern of target dots of known spacing
arranged on an object to be tracked.
So I guess I can make a black vessel with white dots for the rms to get.

That might be the black object on the left of the cargo bay?


Quote:
For the CANEX-2 experiments, target dots have been placed on the Canadian Target Assembly (CTA), a
small satellite carried in the Space Shuttle's cargo bay. During the flight, a mission specialist will use the
arm to deploy the CTA and take it through a series of maneuvers using the information displayed by the
SVS.

Hm, STS-52 featured PAM-D type of cradles in payload bay after a long hiatus... I always
I have a feeling that PAM-D cradles are not up to date, I mean from Gazza's time (when PC's were weaker) they look a bit flat, "sterile". In real photos it can be seen that, for example, front of these cradles is uneven, some internal frame is "sticking through". In STS-51D photos it is obvious...

And Spacelab mesh too are a bit too simple...

As these meshes were used on many missions, maybe...
well... just thought... nevermind.

Hello "gattispilot"
I tested your last file sts2016.5.zip

I think there was a bad backup of the corrected files because I noticed that
several scenarios for which we had solved problems still have the same
problems !
I tested all the scenarios and here is the result.

Scenarios with problems:

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

(018) STS51-G Discovery /// Only SBS-4 and PAM-1 are visible.
Lack ASE-DOOR-MORELOS as well as the other two satellites and their PAM.
Maybe resume with the scenario STS51-G-on Orbit which is in the repertoire
"STS Historical Scenarios" and that does not work.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Chandra-X

1-Chandra-X launch (STS-93) /// I have a CTD:

============================ ERROR: ==================== =======
Challenger
[Vessel :: OpenConfigFile | . \ Vessel.cpp | 243]
================================================== =============

The problem must come from the file (Space-Shuttle_STS-93Bnew)

[PAYLOAD_1]
MeshName = "2016spaceshuttle \ Challenger \ ColumbiaORG2016F"

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Columbia Scenarios

Launch SWT SRB and Launch SWTW SRB /// I have a CTD for both scenarios:

============================ ERROR: ==================== =======
Shuttle2016A
[Vessel :: OpenConfigFile | . \ Vessel.cpp | 243]
================================================== =============

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Discovery Scenarios

Discovery (MPLM) Launch /// The shuttle is not centered on the launch pad.

Discovery (original) Launch /// The shuttle is not centered on the launch pad.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Endeavor Scenarios

Endeavor (original) Launch /// The shuttle is not centered on the launch pad.

Endeavor Launch /// The shuttle is not centered on the launch pad.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Ficional Scenario

Constellation Launch /// I have a CTD:

============================ ERROR: ==================== =======
STATUS Landed Earth
[Vessel :: OpenConfigFile | . \ Vessel.cpp | 243]
================================================== =============

Constitution at the ISS /// LEONARDO is fixed on the tail of the Shuttle.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++++++++++++++++++++++

HST_ex

1 STS-31 HST Launch /// The Shuttle is too low on the firing point.
HST is not centered in the hold of the Shuttle

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++++++++++++++++++++++

STS Historical Scenarios

STS51-G /// The satelite guard doors do not work (K).
SPARTAN-1 is out of place in the cargo hold.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++++++++++++++++++++++

STS-109

STS-109 RNDZ scenario /// HST not the high definition version. The hold is empty.

STS-109 launch scenario /// The cargo hold is empty.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++++++++++++++++++++++

STS-4

STS-4HI-DEF /// Aunune textures neither Shuttle, nor ET, nor payloads.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

STS-48

STS-48 LAUNCH /// No Guidance file.

STS48_UARS /// I have a CTD.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

STS-49

STS-49 LAUNCH OF INTESAT6NEW.2 /// I have a CTD.

============================ ERROR: ==================== =======
Shuttle2016BEVA
[Vessel :: OpenConfigFile | . \ Vessel.cpp | 243]
================================================== =============

STS-49 LAUNCH /// The satellite is the objects are present in the hold but without texture.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

STS-61C

STS61-C ORBIT /// The satellite is present but the others the objects in the hold
not their visible textures.

STS61-C LAUNCH /// The satellite is present but the others the objects in the hold
not their visible textures.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Sunnyvale

Kh-12

STS-62D Approching KH12 rendezvous /// No cockpit in the Shuttle.
the loads of the cargo hold are fixed outside the Shuttle.

STS-62D Launch VAFB /// the loads of the hold are fixed outside the Shuttle.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The Crosse

LAUNCH VAFB /// Lacrosse is attached to the outside of the Shuttle.

It is like they say the devil is in the details

So fixed some. Other than the Intelsat6 textures. When you run 61c what does the log show?

Also can you post what the hst position should be?

---------- Post added 09-18-19 at 05:33 AM ---------- Previous post was 09-17-19 at 06:36 PM ----------

This should fix the majority:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=16W...JJ_bHZplLUJR4O

On the missing textures can you post the log.

I get a ctd on the sts 48 with UARS also?

What should be in the hold of sts 109?

Fictional sts 51g Weird the telestar ase doors do not show up on the scn window so I can press K. the other 2 do

I wonder if a sc3/4 issue in the scn?


STS-4HI-DEF this one uses the hi-def textures/meshes not sure what we do about it.



One thing that is odd. Is the attachment point values seem to be different. I ran some scn in my "old" orbiter and in the vanilla visually the point are different. That is why the cargo is off. It seems off by 3
