So was OV102 only different? So it would have OV102 Original and ov102 mid? So the others should be the same.

The code to this would be nice but since it isn't this will do.

So not sure why this has different attachment points?
Code:
STS-41D:Shuttle
  STATUS Orbiting Earth
  RPOS -6513085.78 -491695.27 -1401044.39
  RVEL 1674.558 -542.479 -7527.791
  AROT -175.81 -12.47 -86.54
  VROT -0.07 0.00 0.00
  AFCMODE 7
  PRPLEVEL 0:0.923829
  NAVFREQ 0 0
  CONFIGURATION 3
  ORIGINAL 
  RENDER 
  RMSARM 
  SRB

Right. Columbia when into overhaul after STS-9. Sorry.

gattispilot: make sure to take a look at the SF manual. The other shuttles have different variants as well to match the livery differences. Columbia is the only one with three though. There is a section in the manual on the attachment points if I recall correctly. Don't have it in front of me at the moment.

Thanks. So now I need to do some code read the scn and get the attachment info:
PL1_OFS 0.000000 -0.800000 -2.440000
PL1_DIR 0.000000 -1.000000 0.000000
PL1_ROT 1.000000 0.000000 0.000000
PL2_OFS 0.000000 0.100000 -4.950000
PL2_DIR 0.000000 1.000000 0.000000
PL2_ROT 0.000000 0.000000 1.000000
PL3_OFS 0.050000 0.140000 3.160000
PL3_DIR 0.000000 1.000000 0.000000
PL3_ROT 0.000000 0.000000 1.000000
PL4_OFS 0.050000 0.250000 -1.550000
PL4_DIR 0.000000 1.000000 0.000000
PL4_ROT 0.000000 0.000000 1.000000
PL5_OFS 0.050000 0.250000 -4.950000
PL5_DIR 0.000000 1.000000 0.000000
PL5_ROT 0.000000 0.000000 1.000000
PL6_OFS 0.050000 1.800000 5.370000
PL6_DIR 0.000000 1.000000 0.000000

from page 19:
USING THE ATTACHMENTS WITH OTHER ADD-ONS
When creating scenarios for use with the Expansion Pack series for the Shuttle Fleet,
some of the best third-party add-ons required specific configuration files to work with the
fleet and its attachments. This would then render the add-ons as biased for use with the
Shuttle Fleet only and I want to get away from that situation as much as possible.
Additionally, with the prior Shuttle Fleet it was only possible to grapple and return to the
payload bay one item per scenario. To avoid this situation as well, the Shuttle Fleet now
has three (3) separate attachment points in the payload bay that will allow a user to
grapple and return three different payloads if desired.
Available attachment points
In order to understand the scenario file entries for various attachment points, the
following is a listing of the available attachment points in the shuttle orbiter:
Attachment Point (Scenario line name) Common usage
Attachment “0”; PL1 This a deployable payload point (1 of 3)
Attachment “1” The grappling point of the SRMS
Attachment “2” PL2 Another deployable payload point (2 of 3)
Attachment “3” PL3 Final deployable payload point (3 of 3)
Attachment “4” PL4 A “fixed” attachment point for static items
Attachment “5” PL5 A “fixed” attachment point for static items
Attachment “6” PL6 A “fixed” attachment point for static items
Attachment “7” This is a “special” attachment point
The new fleet vehicles will now write a new series of lines in the scenario files similar to
the following:

So I am not sure if there is an easy way to do this.

I made a Zeneithstar vessel. And loaded into a SF 2010.

The shuttle is Ov 103 original with no extra point defined

So then I load into the new shuttle:


So if I adjust the points to fit the sf and 2010 and load into my2016 shuttle

But adjust the shuttle attachments:


So there not be a direct copy and paste. But copy and paste and alter the attachment points from the scn?

Any thoughts?

---------- Post added 04-16-18 at 06:20 AM ---------- Previous post was 04-15-18 at 08:21 AM ----------

So I figured this altrs the existing points. Not are the points.

Code:
  PL1_OFS 0.000000 -0.800000 -2.440000
  PL1_DIR 0.000000 -1.000000 0.000000
  PL1_ROT 1.000000 0.000000 0.000000
But I guess I need to get the default based on the OV and/or mid or original. But I sf does a shift mesh or something is why they are not aligning up?

So As I understand it
1. Need to load attachment points based on ov,mid, original (Need to figure out what the points need to be
2. Then if in the scn it has PL1 make that the new attachment I have done this but not sure how to by pass setting the attachment if this is not present?

I was using Attachment manger which was giving me false info on the points.

So It looks like I need at least 2 different textures per shuttle. Original, present and then maybe future. That can be done.

The one thing I am not sure about is how to write just "RMSARM" or "ODS". I was able to read the scn and if these are present then do something, Thanks Brian.

Since we are using ms2015 you have to add the et and srb to the scn.
