Cool, if you need any help with stuff like that, feel free to PM me

EDIT: If you guys want mission patches, I'd more than willing to provide them for you.

How often are you planning to launch missions?
Once a week? Twice a week?

I would lean more on twice but that's just because I chose the next available STS mission on slot 14.
Once a week would mean 4+ months

It all depends on how fast you guys can finish your flight and get us the post flight scenarios. At least once a week, but hopefully more often than that. The actual day you fly the mission is flexible, I don't think we'll set any exact (real life) dates for each flight. However, the (simulated) launch date in the scenario will be exact and planned in advance, but it won't be the same as the current real world date/time is my only point.

When the first flight goes up on July 6, 2011, we'll already have all of the launch scenarios for the space station ready to go. That means all we'll have to do is paste in the ship content from your post flight scenarios, then release the new package for the next flight. We'll contact you the flight before your slated to go up so you have time to prepare before your launch scenario is released.

Will the Soyuz/Progress/CTV missions have a launch autopilot set up?
If so I'm up for doing any of those but I'll never be able to launch the thing!

Sorry, I'm pretty new to OFSS. Is the basic plan: you get sent the mission, you do the mission then you post the completeted mission on the completed mission board?

When you've got a spare moment, posting up a list of all the needed addons would be really helpful. Thanks!

Yep, the auto-pilots will be setup. When someone completes their flight, they copy the contents from the (Current state) scenario then paste it into this thread:

All required addons will be listed in the extensive documentation which you will get when the first package is released. For that matter, everything you need to know about the space station will be included in that document, but we can't release it yet until we finish preparing it. It won't be long, Kyle and I are both still working on the scenarios.

This might be an afterthought, but has anyone considered wiki-ing our progress?

Updated screen shot of how OFSS III will look completed. No ships are docked to the 4 PMA adapters, however there is a SoyuzTMA and CTV on station as escape / crew rotation vehicles:



EDIT - I just noticed the 4th URMS is missing. I'll update my post in a moment...

EDIT 2 - Screen shot updated.. NOW it is completed.

Nice! Great layout.
I like how the cupola is at the end of the "docking" section of the station.
Very groovy.

Looks like Canada had better get cracking on all these modules.

Beautiful space station, Tex. Can't wait to go up and see it for myself.

Cheers mate.

Indeed, they have a lot of work to do! I'll also be using PennyBlack's XR5 skins for the
Canadian Space Agency
,
ESA
, and
NASA

Tex, I'll be finished with all the MPLM missions tomorrow. Do you want me to send them to you when ready?

Yea that sounds good, thanks Kyle. I'm just finalizing my work now. I think we can probably release the first package by the end of the week if all goes well.
