That is part of Skylab hardware.

You have the rescue CSM (never used, 5 seats, crew of 2 goes up) and the long duration CSM (used for Skylab with extra white paint and no High Gain antenna).

That one of the reasons I've asked for multiple textures or meshes. Lot's of replay and future reuse value on having all those versions.

The Rescue CSM actually predates Skylab but the original plan to have it, along with a second Saturn 5, on stand-by for each Lunar mission was nixed for being too expensive.

---------- Post added at 12:11 ---------- Previous post was at 12:00 ----------

The 5 man Apollo CM was actually proposed as a escape pod for the Shuttle/Freedom/ISS but by then the Apollo assembly line had already been re-purposed so the cost savings of from an existing design would have been minimal.

the Apollo CRV would have traded the SM for a simple retro/battery pack and been carried aloft in the shuttle's payload bay.

That was a nice idea.

Didn't know about Apollo + Shuttle but always thought that the cargo bay dimensions would make them fit.

Again, lot's of interesting scenario possibilities here...

But meat-space has been keeping me busy.

I've made a lot of incremental progress, but I really need to sit down and debug/tidy-up before it's ready others to use.

Great news.
I love AAPO, integrates really well with Orbiter and other add-ons, including AMSO.
Hope you are including the CMS/LEM variations on the next release.

As I mentioned before, feel free to use any of my Skylab B or lunar sites if needed.

For those that are interested, the work that needs to be done before I can consider this thing usable is UI related. As it stands there is a lot of functionality that is coded but otherwise inaccessible to the end user without mucking about with my config files.

Ideally these functions would be accessible from within Orbiter, and be properly safeguarded to prevent crashes and memory leaks.

That means going through and coding proper interfaces like this one...



...individually it may not look like much but there is a lot of 'em, and proper commenting and debuggery is turning into quite the chore.

Indeed...
I do like the simple text based approach.
Looking forward to it!

How do you deploy and turn on the EVA light on the CSM ?
