Arrow Shukra_Venus_Station_080813
by OrbitHangar 08-13-2008, 07:00 AM


Author: artlav

About:
Shukra Venus Balloon Station is a manned facility in the Earth region of the Venus atmosphere,
maintained up there by aerostatic means.

This is still a work in progress version, don't judge too harsh.

Installation:
Unpack into Orbiter directory.
Shukra is UMMU compatible, installing UMMU addon is highly recommended. See http://orbiter.dansteph.com.

Collision physics specs and known bugs:
The landing happens if relative velocity is less than 0.5 m/s.
The station's location is fixed once the time accel goes above 10x, other time it is in free-float.
Landing on a station with time accel above or equal 10 is certain to create bugs.

Keyboard controls:

Landing vessel:
. - engage wheel arrest

UMMU:
To move, set ROT or OFF mode
Motion as in ground mode, secondary - ADWS
Airlock B is on.
E - action button

Platform:
Alt+C - Stow/Retract landing strip
Alt+V - Stow/Retract probe
Alt+B - Cycle dropper
Numpad + - Raise station
Numpad - - Lower station

VC Camera navigation:
Alt+
K move forward
I move backwards
J turn left
L turn right
U Return to default location

Changes:
080811-080813:
-Fixed some UMMU bugs
-Added runway lights
-Added ADWS as UMMU controls
-Added more animations
-Added UMMU-interactable components

Legacy Add-on Reviews from Orbit Hangar Mods


Review by eveningsky339
Pros: Very nice!
Review:
This is one of my favorite stations to play around with and it's not even finished yet! Great work on this one, artlav.


Review by napes weaver
Pros: Very Very Cool... Adds a whole new permutation to Orbiter
Cons: nada
Review:
I must admit, I really didn't believe this add-on would work. "Collision" detection for something other than planets in Orbiter? Landed my first try with the DG-XR1... Didn't conserve enough fuel to get back to orbit though :(

Chemi,

Silly question from me here, but you do have UMMU installed, right?

You are having a lot of CTD's. You've said this in other threads but have never answered any of our questions to help you fix them.

Works here, 2010p1 D3D9 client. Two scenarios are fine, Dg landed and the DG and Sh landed scenarios. I have,nt got time to sort the UMMU scenario out which CTD. I don,t have DGiV. So yes, the addon does work.

You don't need DGIV to use this add-on, only UMMU (the old standalone version 2.0 for example). The scenario with UMMU indeed does crash upon launch, but if you modify it to change the input focus from "UMMU_Tester" to "GL-01", it loads just fine, and then you can switch the input focus back (with F3 key) to the UMMU after it's successfully loaded.

Changes to Shukra-UMMU.scn:
Code:
END_ENVIRONMENT

BEGIN_FOCUS
  Ship UMMU_Tester
  Ship GL-01
END_FOCUS

BEGIN_CAMERA
By the way, if you installed the add-on after UMMU, re-run "Utils\UMmu15AddonPatch.exe" to patch the vbs.dll module.

Hey guy sorry to bother but would really appreciate some help. so DLed and installed addon, have used a LOT of Artlav's stuff, it is always super awesome and i can almost always get around any issues on my own at this point, mostly because i've read through a lot of posts on this forum and hardly ever had to actually ask anything;
but i cannot get the scenarios to appear in my launchpad when i open. i even opened up the directory and copied the text from the UMmu landed scenario and pasted it into the current state scenario file and loaded the current state file to no avail, i have all the prereqs and have actually never had this happen before.
so i made a new folder in the scenarios folder in my main orbiter directory and put them all in that folder, but even then, the folder does not appear, all my other scenarios appear when placed in the folder. not sure what is going on. any ideas?

Are you using Orbiter 2010 or 2016 beta?
