Thanks. I fixed the seam in the aft section. Not sure what to do about the SSME. Should there a stow key and then they stow?

---------- Post added at 06:34 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:26 PM ----------

Here are the new meshes and dll
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1kr...f8zKeFI1OS7UKp

then down load this updated dll
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1OF...sDSTHdGtXJvSKc

Can't find anything on the SSME in SF.

[SHIFT]/[X] (1) Prelaunch – SSME O2 purge (start / stop)
(2) On-orbit – Operate RMS cradle sequence
but that just dump fuel? maybe it is not a command but part of a sequence. The only animation I have is for the gimbal thrust part not stow. So when should they stow or do we want a key?

Back home in the evening (7:42 pm) after a working day (must be 11.42 a.m. in Texas).

yes, I would prefer to have some key, for manual stowing (nozzles closer together, as in my animation) when in orbit.

Thanks. I can make it a key. Hows is the mesh models?
I get a flickering on the external view from the black frames. But more concern with interior.

Ku-Band antenna - hm I was "scared" how much more detailed and real it looks

1) Aft cockpit camera, seems to be, has not moved:
I thought about something like (0.45, 3.02, 12.46).

2) Port side payload bay rear window has a gap between inner black frame and whitish mesh.
P.S Bottom of right wing is OK , but there was (and still is) a gap in left wing also.
Maybe front views in cockpit could be moved a bit forward, although clipping will happen, but in current position there is still clipping of chairs. I do not see problem for now. Similar view is when looking at upper port side window (in aft view).
By the way I noticed, when there is EVA underway, I cannot turn cockpit cameras to look around. I know, being an EVA, it is supposed to be, but it is also in shuttle cockpit.

Did you try the newest dll:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1OF...sDSTHdGtXJvSKc

"By the way I noticed, when there is EVA underway, I cannot turn cockpit cameras to look around. I know, being an EVA, it is supposed to be, but it is also in shuttle cockpit." do you mean the payload load camera? I tried moving them and clipping was bad.

So cockpit mesh is good. If you have camera module you can move the camera around. I might try to move back to the way they were.

So fix the left wing. and the window. Can you screen shot the window and wing issue?


Looked at the Shuttle flight manual nothing about stow of SSME

Asked on a FB forum dealing with the shuttle:"The SSME's were gimballed for a stow position to get the aerodynamic tail fairing on for SCA transportation. Pretty sure at MECO the SSME's just returned to their null position."

Third photo - left wing's trailing edge had the same gaps as the [now fixed] right wing.
First pic - wanted to show I noticed a while ago gaps where payload bay meets the cabins aft wall.
Second pic - red lines show that gap.



I could not make a look around while in shuttles cockpit (aft view), during EVA (I controled STS and just wanted to look from aft window), but actually it is not a big issue...

currently SSME nozzles seem oriented too high, maybe old position would be better (but overall, no need to think currently about this stow)

And yes, what about these OMS exhausts, I still see white squares some distance below OMS nozzles, during burns.

Even if you press right mouse button, and click "view image"?
Hm, all previous images I made the same way...

So hopefully fix the gaps. I saw some in the aft payload section. moved the camera in the cockpit back to the way it was.
CTRL+7 stows the SSME

Seems that it is OK. Only when I look in cockpit aft camera, screen, which is to the left beside the starboard side aft window, has one poly-triangle with wrong material (half screen MFD does not show)...

Weird. I will fix it. Thanks for testing. I guess I can start redoing the rest of the fleet.

Do we need to look out the other aft window?


pappy2 has shown me missing some textures,meshes in the payloads.

Yes, to look out also the other aft window could be a good thing...

---------- Post added at 11:25 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:26 PM ----------

I found some anomalies, is it EVA guy or shuttle?

https://ibb.co/4tvkJ08
It was clearly in the shadow (whole payload bay was in shadow), but seemed illuminated. Like aft wall of crew compartment is not blocking sunlight? vertical line belongs, I think, to vertical "tube like" mesh (there are two of them) on the aft wall.
But other vessels like PAM-D cradles are dark, so maybe it is EVA guy who's "to blame".
