Default V7 RELEASE CANDIDATE!

After only a decade or so in work, we have issued the first V7.0 Release Candidate.

It can be downloaded from https://github.com/dseagrav/NASSP/re...-RC-master-308 and applied to Orbiter 2010-P1. The documentation / wiki is at http://nassp.sourceforge.net/wiki/Main_Page

We are actively soliciting bug reports and feedback both here and on the development forums. If you are having issues getting approved for the development forums please say so here and I will get it sorted out.

Here the changelog, although at this point it is more of a list of new features, because NASSP 7.0 is mostly new features.
  • Orbiter 2010 compatible, Orbiter 2016 support will be one of the main focuses of NASSP 8.0.
  • Full mission support for Apollo 7 and 8.
  • Fully functional 2D Panel Support throughout the CM.
  • 3D Virtual Cockpit (nonfunctional at the moment).
  • Realistic simulation of most major spacecraft systems.
  • Historically accurate checklists.
  • NEW CM, SM, and KSC meshes (VAB, LUT, LC34/37/39, MSS, MLP, Crawler etc.). At this point "new" means several years old though.
  • Fully integrated and functional Virtual AGC emulator, running the exact software flown on the Apollo 8 mission.
  • Limited support for the Lunar Module, with some major systems missing, but integrated and functional Virtual AGC and a few preliminary scenarios for later missions that include the LM.
  • Simulated Launch Vehicle Digital Computer (LVDC++) for the Saturn IB and Saturn V. Capable of Launch and Translunar Injection, maneuvering to docking attitude and more.
  • Mission Control Center simulation. This optional feature lets you fly a complete mission without having to use any MFDs. All maneuvers will be calculated for you and various Pre-Advisory Data (PAD) will be automatically displayed throughout the mission. Currently this mission support is limited to supporting guidance and navigation.

Download link: https://github.com/dseagrav/NASSP/re...master-308.zip
Installation instructions: http://nassp.sourceforge.net/wiki/Installation
First Steps: http://nassp.sourceforge.net/wiki/First_Steps

Find the quickstart guide under "Doc\Project Apollo - NASSP". The wiki has a bunch of outdated articles, these will be updated in the next few weeks.

Due to the nature of the Virtual AGC, this release candidate does not include a set of scenarios throughout the Apollo 7 and 8 missions. Any change to the launch scenarios could render all these scenarios invalid, so creating these scenarios will be the very last step before the actual NASSP 7.0 release.

Good to hear that this addon is still being worked on. Even though this is somewhat a little more difficult than AMSO, I think I can manage it.

Also 600th post. WOOOT

This is great news. It's been a long time coming, and a lot of hard work has gone into it.

I need to pop over to Rob's forum more often.
