Ah, sorry I did not get that!

Download the attached file and extract the file "mpcv-hull-w.dds" into your Orbiter Textures directory. It will overwrite the current white texture, giving the Orion a black tile texture.

It's a hack, but does not look too bad. In the future a scenario file parameter may be used to control the visual appearance, black or white.

So, does the LAS actually pull the MPCV?

Sure does. Just remember to jettison Orion from the stage it's attached to, or you'll see a lot of smoke and bother going nowhere fast. Before you wonder, I am speaking from experience.

You should put Orion and the LAS on gattispilot's SLS. I can't run any of your launch scenarios, and I don't know why. What Falcon 9 version do you use?

You said Mode 10 gets you the LAS and fairings. Is it the fairing between the command Module and vessel?

I think I will need to modify my part that holds the Orion in.

Is there a manual in the files? I assume that explains operation.

For testing I use BrianJ's falconheavy_141025.

For the SLS I use the attached scenario. Modified the payload section to remove the LAS, but left your fairings in place, as they fit much better.
With fairings I mean the 3 panels between SLS and Orion.

SLA 3 -2.00 -2.00 0.00 ; Note:SLA 3 <--
....
PAYLOAD SLA1 slsorionfair1 slsorionfair1 0.00 0.00 1.0 0.00 0.00 1.00
PAYLOAD SLA2 slsorionfair2 slsorionfair2 0.00 0.00 1.0 0.00 0.00 1.00
PAYLOAD SLA3 slsorionfair3 slsorionfair3 0.00 0.00 1.0 0.00 0.00 1.00
; PAYLOAD SLA4 slsorionlas1 slsorionlas1 0.00 0.00 88.25 0.00 0.00 1.00
END

I guess a kind of attachement kit will be required for each launcher type, consisting of the 3 panels (fairings?) and the cradle to connect the Orion to the launcher.

Orion cockpit video published. Should Orion MPCV eventually have a VC?

I can't figure out how to attach the Orion to this delta 4 heavy mod?
Delta IV Launch Vehicles 3.0


The custom payload manager seems to only allow one mesh, one config. I got it to work with an older Orion mod that had an all-in-one config and mesh and attached it with the default Delta IV fairings but this capsule has lots of separate meshes and configs. Is there a way to make an all-in-one config or mesh?
It's not a problem if not, I'm just wondering if it's possible because I really like to use that Delta IV since I use it a lot for satellite missions.

I want to mirror you completely. I have been trying to get Orion on that Delta IV for many months, and I have come to no avail. I would rather use that one, but yes, it only can take specific one config / one mesh combos. If there was a way to get Orion on it, it would still be less accessible to edit, and the Velcro advantages would be lost. Agreed, that Delta IV 3.0 version is a more realistic version, but I'm not sure how to get Orion on there.

Ok, I will provide an all-in-one mesh for launch.
Will take a day to do so.

Uploaded a new version (03) on the front page of this thread. Contains all-in-one launch meshes & configs. Scenario included for Tom Harringtons Delta IV Launch Vehicles 3.0.

Black CM tiles for now. Fairings adapted. Minor tweaks with RCS exhausts.

Looks like that should be a submission for the 2015 calender. You do some great work, I for one am glad to see you back in the add-on business (not that you were ever really gone, but you know what I mean).
