I'm in a bit of a bind here. As part of the mesh updates/fixes, I have fixed the main VC mesh to fit the orbiter again. But the problem is that kills the alignment of the actual panel meshes as well as the VC positions. Could they be updated to essentially sit at local zero coordinates with the addition of offsets in the code?

Could this be delayed for a version 5.1? We could make that version just to fix the VC visuals (window issues, etc), even without the resize and panel mesh rework. This would be a small update for the user, but for us it involves many changes, hence my idea to take the VC out of the critical path for SSU 5.0.

On my end, I think I'm finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel. A few things remain to be done, but I hope to get the aero stuff in good enough state to merge to the trunk before the end of the month.

Made a small hack on the sizeable change I'm finishing to the aerosurface command/data path to show the new possibilities:

Only logic in the GPCs is missing to command the elevons to do other things other than elevator and aileron.

There seems to have been a bit of development in the docking system department. It seems like BrianJ has come up with an actual solution in his/Donamy's SAL/HST add-on: https://www.orbiter-forum.com/showthread.php?t=40559

The active part is on the actual Service Airlock. If you want to see it in action, then just launch the Dragon2_SAL docked to HST_SCM scenario in the SAL subfolder and then press G to see the docking mechanism move with the HST.

I'll look at this after I square away the aero stuff.
