Yet another ISS addon!
First, a bit of back-story: (Do we actually need another ISS addon?)
For a long time, I have wanted a good, high resolution ISS in Orbiter 2016. The model that comes with Orbiter kinda looks like it came from 2006.
It was good in its day, but in addition to being very low poly, it was modeled after the intended future configuration of the ISS.
Needless to say, the actual finished ISS is different from the initial concepts.
Also, I wanted CMG attitude control and working solar panels.
- CMG Rate Gyros
- Sun-Tracking Solar Panels
- Working window covers on Destiny and the Cupola
- Virtual Cockpit for the US side and Zvezda
- Functional robotic arm and MBS
- Moving EATCS Radiators
CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED!!!
This addon is not for low-end computers!
The total poly count for the exterior is 255,419 triangles across 7 meshes.
The total poly count for the virtual cockpit is 349,709 triangles across 4 meshes.
Together, the TOTAL poly count for the whole model is over half a million triangles! (605,128)
1 = CMG Free Drift
2 = CMG Zero Angular
3 = CMG Attitude Keeping
7 = Enter TGT Roll
8 = Enter TGT Pitch
9 = Enter TGT Yaw
SHIFT S = Sun Tracking On/Off
G = Open/Close the window cover on Destiny
K = Open/Close the Cupola window covers
INSERT/DELETE = Move the MBS
S/W = Fly through the VC
Configuration file options:
DEFAULT_CMG_MODE = This sets the mode the CMG Gyros will be in if not specified in the scenario.
MAXTIMEACCEL = This is the maximum time acceleration allowed for the CMG gyros. If time acceleration is more than this, the CMG gyros will be disabled.
HAS_PIRS = If this is false, the earth-facing pirs module will be gone.
HAS_IDAS = If this is false, the PMA docking ports will revert to the Shuttle-era configuration (No IDAs)
ASTRONAUT = Set this to false if you want to fly solo...
IROSA = If this is set to false, the iROSA solar panels will be gone.
CAMSPEED = Sets how fast the camera translates in meters per second when flying through the VC.
Canadarm2 v 4.0
