Exclamation Can't attach PPE module to Falcon Heavy

Hello,

I am trying to attach PPE module from SLS on Falcon Heavy. But it doesn't work, no matter if I attached it in the scenario file or from the launch control window. The scenario loads with PPE not attached, and the launch control window shows NULL after pressing the attach button.

Here are a video shows the problem in the launch control window:

The scenario is attached below.

Hi,
I don't think the PPE module has any Attachment Points.
You will need to add attachment points to Config/Vessels/NEWPPB.cfg.
You could probably use the same parameters as the Docking Ports.

I've tried to use the docking parameters but it doesn't work. This how it looks in NEWPPB.cfg:


Code:
ClassName = PPB1
Module = PPB1


EnableFocus = true
BEGIN_DOCKLIST
 0 0 4.622   0 0 1   0 -1 0
0 0 -3.544   0 0 -1   0 -1 0
END_DOCKLIST


; === Attachment specs ===
BEGIN_ATTACHMENT
 0 0 4.622   0 0 1   0 -1 0
END_ATTACHMENT

Could you post the correct attachment point?

END_ATTACHMENT

I believe you forgot the "p" (for parent-attachment-point)

; === Attachment specs ===
BEGIN_ATTACHMENT
P 0 0 4.622 0 0 1 0 -1 0 XS
END_ATTACHMENT

..might work

Thanks! It works now.





I just modified the attachment point to the other docking port so it looks right.



Code:
; === Attachment specs ===
BEGIN_ATTACHMENT
P 0 0 -3.544   0 0 -1   0 -1 0
END_ATTACHMENT
