I withdraw my statement about the semantics of the DGIV sat. You're right, it's complicated enough.

Does anyone know how to integrate a DGIV payload into another vessel? If it's obscure, the Carina that Crab posted might be easier.

True there are plenty of available sats already up and going...

Fine with me you guys pick which one you want.

How about the small SVTU? Best way to transport units I think..

I don't think there's an SDK for the female end of DGIV cargo. IDK.
That Carina acts the same as the default Carina with one attachment point, but adding a docking port isn't hard. Jus to put that out there.

OH OH missed you there.
Well then, whaddaya say for a comms sat? TI Carina for me (if I count).

I'm in favour of Carina.

I'm leaning towards the Carina, because it seems the DGIV sat might have problems.

3+ votes for Carina. Good enough for me,

ummm well I have to change the flight profiles again...

Weight is not going to be a problem at all. But are we going to have it hanging on the side by universal cargo deck/attachment or something?

Any other changes while I am adding hours to the clock...

I'd suggest docking it unpressurized to the MTV. Dunno where.
We are moving!

Well, you don't have to add time to the clock. That defeats the purpose of a time limit

SVTU seems more like a landing mechanism... docking it with a kick motor to the MTV and then releasing before orbit insertion could work.

Actually, docking too many things seems like a bad idea. Could it be handled with attachments instead? The interplanetary segment would be hellish if there was too much torque on the vessel under thrust, even if it did compensate somewhat.

And yeah, where'd that day come from?

Kinda, the idea was a count down to the release of the (more) complete and thorough reference and roster. But given my limited time to actually have any 'fun time' (which this qualifies as such) It will take a little while to change the flight description profiles and whatever.

-If your wondering why, I just got a call to work extra Friday so that makes it a 56 hour work week + 21 credit hour student (which includes Physics!!:D)

If the workload gets annoying you can email me a list of changes and I can integrate them, if you'd like.

SVTU works in space too

I thought Orbiter limited the number of docking ports, but had a much higher number of attachment points? Its the way to go.

Well, if the RTF is any example, it looks like anything is possible with attachments...

Well, this turned out well, I'd think. Give it a month or so and we'll be cooking!

Well, hopefully not cooking, but...you know what I mean...
