Default Chang'e 4 Lander, Rover, Queqiao and Longjiang 1 and 2 Lunar probes

With tomorrow's launch of the Chang'e 4 Lunar lander and rover, I think it's time that we do an addon for the Chang'e 4 probes, including the Queqiao L2 Point satellite and Longjiang 1 and 2 Lunar orbiters.

There are a few things that are needed to be done for the Chang'e addon project:

1. The Long March 3B Rocket (Multistage2015)

2. animation for Chang'e 4 lander, rover, Queqiao and the Twin Longjiang lunar orbiters.

3. The launch complex

4. LunarTransferMFD and LolaMFD usage

Quick update to this project: It has not been in development yet, but will be soon!

However, there are no other addons for the Orbiter simulator that are based on the spacecraft and vehicles of the Chinese National Space Administration. (the other spacecraft in the Chang'e program are needed to be done as well, including Chang'e 3/Yutu and the Chang'e 5 Test mission.)

UPDATE: Chang'e 4 is landing on the Lunar South Pole on January 3rd, which means the addon needs to be in development before the event.

Are you doing it?

I would just a rover already made and modify it to match the Chinese one.

IDK if Velcro Rockets would work for Orbiter 2016, as the rocket would have to be made into a Multistage2015 version

Well it wouldn't be too hard to make it into a ms2015. But then sharing it might be.

Meshwizard is not converting the Core and 2nd stage so I can see what needs to be done

Yes. We have the 2f/E. Will see if I can make the 3b.



That will get a launch vessel.


Someone may need to make a guidance file
