Yes, those quotes were regarding AMSO for Orbiter 2010 and the new D3D9Cient and the reflections from surfaces such as the visors. Alain missed doing AS-506 but he is in the hospital and will fix Apollo 11 after he gets out.

Of course it looks crap, but anyway I still did it... because I feel comfortable with that sim.
Wow, you mean from 1994? Is that thing still around? Or do you mean the recent tablet port?

Sorry for hijack, but had to ask.

I was able to meet with gattis for about 6 hrs Saturday and he was able to get D3D9 working for me and its like a new orbiter. Simply amazing !
I did see he's surface terrain in 2016 and its out of this world and I'm looking to load that up as well. AMSO would be super in there. I just learned to add new landing zones and have toyed with Apollo 21 and 22.
4th rock I do miss the white CM you did and Skylab doesn't work in D3D9 but working on that.

My little addon for the 3 Apollo Lunar Landing Missions in AMSO version 1.22 which updates the description files for AS-506, AS-510 and AS-512.

Scenarios.zip

Extract to your base Orbiter folder. You can then go to LROC and copy in the coordinates for the LEM which are in each description following the steps below.

LROC:
https://quickmap.lroc.asu.edu/?exten...npEoAsjZwLrc0A

Click where indicated here,

Enter LAT,LON where indicated here:

Like this:

Then click on GO and zoom in to 50m using the + sign in the top right.
The Eagle descent stage is in the middle of the screen.

I hope you like it.

I tested it before posting and from the above post and it worked fine.
Are you saying that it won't download or that you can't unzip it?

That is very strange. I have downloaded it from my link and unzipped it 3 times. Do you have WinZip or Winrar? Try right clicking on it and selecting Extract to Scenarios/
