The distortions were fixed by me remapping the wings. I have attached a screenshot showing this.

Are you going to check in the updates on SVN?

Yes, of course. I'll do that once I fixed everything on GLS's list.

If the wings are done, you could commit it, so Wolf can continue his work.

So, as we now a "COMPOOL", and parameters in it can be loaded/saved from/to the scenario file, I was thinking if it wouldn't be a good idea to put in there the target vessel of the. That way, a ground-up rendezvous could be made using the FDOMFD and then the onboard guidance, without the need to exit the sim to add the target vessel to the scenario.

Looking at the code (in the StateVectorSoftware class), there is also a t0Pos vector (position at T0) which is used to calculate the angle from the launch site for OMS-1/2... any idea if this is the correct implementation (save (only) the position at T0)? (if it doesn't require many lines to be re-written and helps in the rendezvous, IMO it is worth a bit of work)



In other news, I re-added the predictors to SPEC 50... they dance a bit too much IMO, but for now it's not that bad. The thing I that instead of "SPEC 50" I wrote "SPEC 51" in the commit message...
Editing the message doesn't work as a script is missing on the server side: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/...do-i-create-it
Could our server gods add this one?

Possible to do for a server admin - but not really necessary. Its maybe annoying, but not critical.

I've been thinking and maybe my idea above isn't the best. Making the StateVectorSoftware run in MM101 would probably be a cleaner solution until "the proper way" is implemented. This way that software's scenario block is available pre-launch.

Just committed a reworked NWS! Still place for much improvement, but at least now the force isn't generated in the GPCs, but instead in the Landing Gear class.

Interesting bit I found while researching:
Quote:
In early 1985, a meeting was held to discuss ways to upgrade the nosewheel steering system to a point at which the crew would be willing to use the nosewheel for steering. The nosewheel system had been used for only a short period on STS-9 as part of a DTO in which only the manual direct mode was used.

(...)

The baseline nosewheel steering system was not considered acceptable by the flight crew and engineers because a failure in GPC 2 or multiplexer-demultiplexer (MDM) 2 could cause the nosewheel to be commanded to full deflection. This would cause the Orbiter to depart the runway before the crew could turn the system off.
(emphasis mine)
Uhhh.... wow.

BTW: I implemented the improved version from the 90s.


Next is another push to improve the AerojetDAP, so hopefully it is less susceptible to the Aileron/Rudder fight (that can always happen, but it's happening too much right now), then raise panel C3 so C2 has +/- the correct size, and a few details in the displays, and that is probably it on the OV for SSU 5.0.

It is up now, thanks!

I knew this would happen eventually... my laptop just shutdown itself down while running MOGE in the Intel GPU...
As it now has both feet in the grave, I doubt it will survive summer. I'll have to buy a new one earlier than I wanted.


On a positive note, I think I'm +/- finished with the AerojetDAP+guidance+aero business.
I still haven't cracked the issue that causes the "force fight", but it seems to be that the sign of the NY feedback isn't correct, or at least what is expected for the vehicle to trim the sideslip. Not sure what Orbiter is doing behind the curtains, or if our NY calculation is correct. I have to "hot-wire" the lateral force calculated in the aero tables to the DAP to see what I can learn, but this might not happen soon as there are other priorities.

Welcome to the club.


Funnily the problem only affects DirectX here. Java based games using OpenGL like Minecraft are not affected...
