I loved the look of TTM24 but couldn't manage the docking in lunar orbit. Got any neat tricks?

Default Docking the PTM to the Lander

I just use the docking MFD, activate the top docking port on the PTM (SHFT KP5) and work to align the PTM longitudinally, to the aft of the lander 3 to 5 meters below it. I then work my way toward the lander keeping my speed very low and alignment as precise as I can using visual cues a lot until I get a good docking port alignment (using the MFD). I then null out my forward motion, make any necessary roll angle corrections using the MFD, and use gentle upward translation thrust to finally dock. It took me about three tries going very slowly and carefully to get it right. I can now do it very consistently without uttering a single four-letter word

It is outdated. Unless you really need this version, take the current one from OH.

<Orbiter Atmospheric Visual Enhancement V3> looks find on LEO, but when seen from higher orbit Earth have a bold white outline. Is there any good alternative to it?

I don't think there is at the moment, however if you know you will be spending the majority of your time in LEO, you can use the texture, and if you are planning to do an interplanetary trip, switch it back to default. Kinda cumbersome, but bat files make it a lot easier.

I have a set of addons that I install every time I make a new Orbiter install.

FuelMFD (listed earlier)

Scenario Editor TLE
Add-on Description:
Modified version of Scenario Editor with NORAD TLE (Two-Line Element Sets) import support.
Used NORAD SGP4/SDP4 orbital model for calculation state/speed vectors of earth-orbiting objects.
C++ Source code for the SGP4/SDP4 algorithms was developed by Michael Henry
Installation:
Copy ScnEditorTLE.dll to Orbiter \Modules\Plugin\ directory and activate ScnEditorTLE in Modules tab.
Changes from standard Scenario Editor:
Added button "Load TLE" on "State vectors" tab of vessels parameters. Button active in Earth ref.equator(fixed)cartesian mode only.
Orbiter must be paused during editing!


Remote Control v4
Add-on Description:
This addon is an update for Orbiter's default RControl module. The DLL replaces the old one.
For more information, see the PDF manual included in the package.


GPWS Replacement wav's
Add-on Description:
A set of replacement wav's for Orbiter that are a bit easier on the ears.
!!!BACKUP THE ORIGINALS FIRST!!!


Equation MFD
Add-on Description:
Equation MFD shows you several useful equations and allows you to calculate the value of a variable from the value of the others in the equation. Please post suggestions and critics in the Equation MFD thread in the Addons Forum. A manual with five tutorials is included. In V1.10 buttons for copy and paste from the stack clipboard were added. Some mispelling in variable help was corrected. This is the first 2006_sdk compilation


Rendezvous MFD 050621
Add-on Description:
This MFD allows you to perform a precise approach to rendezvous with minimum fuel usage. It uses Hill's equations (also known as Clohessy-Wiltshire equations) to generate a desired approach profile based only on the interceptor's present position and a de


I've put them into a zip file that I can extract into the Orbiter directory.

Could someone redo the X-71s with complete textures, landing gear, VC, and deployable armadillo? I know that sounds like a lot, but there are some pretty detailed addons out there.

I agree - that is a great mod BUT does it work with the latest release of Orbiter?

Yes it does. I am running the package available from orbiterschool.com at: http://http://orbiterschool.com/files/addon/ttm24.zip

I find it works beautifully.

Also, as there is only one horizon.dds texture for ALL planets, the Earth enhancement wrecks the atmospheres for other planets.

Instead of bat files I use Jones Mod Enabler to shift various config files in and out to the same effect. Eg. Earth.cfg and Horizon.dds can be restored to default easily for trips beyond LEO.
