Got the rover to follow the ramp. Need to get it off. One odd thing is when I get it CTD. Closes the Orbiter Launch window

Thanks. I am backing to the spinning rover again:(

So I may just have the rover in store position and press a key and the rover is at the end of ramp ready to explore.

So using the LEM code for the lander. I placed the lander where I want it. Exit the scn and restart and now the lander is in space:(

Code:
// SM Stage Parameters
const VECTOR3 LEM_DescentCS = { 6.05, 15.26, 6.17 };	// Decent Stage x,y,z cross sections [m^2]
const VECTOR3 LEM_DescentPMI = { 4.08, 1.31, 4.18 };	// Decent Stage principal moments of inertia (mass-normalised) [m^2]
const VECTOR3 LEM_DescentRD		= {0.7,1.2,0.7};	// Decent Stage rotation drag coefficients
const double  LEM_DescentMASS = 626;				// Decent Stage empty mass [kg]
const double  LEM_DescentFUEL = 845;				// Decent Stage fuel capacity [kg]
const double  LEM_DescentISP	= 4398;				// Decent Engine exhuast velocity[m/s] 
const double  LEM_DescentTHRUST = 10000;				// Decent Engine max thrust [n]
const VECTOR3 LEM_DescentOFFSET	= { 0.00, -0.00, 0.00};	// Offset of Descent stage CG from combined CG
//const VECTOR3 LEM_DescentTDP[3]	= {{0.0,-0.1,10.0},{-10.0,-0.1,-15.0},{10.0,-0.1,-15.0}}; // Decent Stage touchdown points [m] RODADOS em Z
//const VECTOR3 LEM_DescentTDP[3]	= {{ 0.00, 4.40,-2.29},{-3.81,-2.20,-2.29},{ 3.81,-2.20,-2.29}}; // Decent Stage touchdown points [m] 

// values from Delta Glider
// point, stiffness, dampening, isotropic/lateral friction coefficient, longitudinal friction coefficient (only used for first 3 points)
const double pesototal=LEM_DescentMASS+LEM_DescentFUEL;
const double xtx_target=-0.1;
const double xtst=(-1)*(pesototal*9.80655)/(3*xtx_target);
const double xtda=0.9*(2*sqrt(pesototal*xtst));

static const DWORD ntdvtx_geardown = 4;
static TOUCHDOWNVTX tdvtx_geardown[ntdvtx_geardown] = {
	{_V( -4,-1.3166,-4), xtst,  xtda, 30.0,30},
	{ _V(4, -1.3166, -4), xtst, xtda, 30.0, 30 },
	{ _V(4, -1.3166, 4), xtst, xtda, 30.0, 30 },
	{ _V(-4, -1.3166, 4), xtst, xtda, 30.0 }
};

So I am going to try something. On the deployment of the rover. I am going to mount a rover mesh to the lander and move the fake rover down the ramp and then disappear and have a rover made where the fake one was.

Haven't gotten thrust to work on the lander as yet

---------- Post added 09-04-19 at 04:39 AM ---------- Previous post was 09-03-19 at 07:32 AM ----------

So I added a rover mesh and moved it to the end of the ramp and spawn the rover there. BUt I get a CTD when I dettach the rover from the lander.

I am thinking it has to do with the attachment points but not sure. the rover is at the right direction
ANz54i0.jpg

Code:
LR2 = CreateAttachment(false, _V(0, -1.0, 3.1), _V(0, -1, 0), _V(0, 0, 1), "ROVER", false);
This gives a CTD
Code:
if (key == OAPI_KEY_K)     {
        DetachChild(LR2, 0);
    }
Code:
void SpiderLEM::SpawnRover(void)
{
    //if (EXT_status == HATCH_DOWN){
    if (GetAttachmentStatus(LR2) == NULL)
    {
        //SetAttachmentParams(ft_pad_att, attp_pos[1], _V(0, 1, 0), _V(0, 0, -1));

        //OBJHANDLE hVessel;
        VESSELSTATUS vs;
        GetStatus(vs);
        hMMU = oapiCreateVessel("P_ROVER", "PROVER", vs);


        VESSEL *v = oapiGetVesselInterface(hMMU);
        ATTACHMENTHANDLE hAttWFC = v->GetAttachmentHandle(true, 0);
        AttachChild(hMMU, LR2, hAttWFC);
        //}
    }
}
So I fired the lander hover engine and started to spin set horizon level on and end up upside down:(

Maybe the rover will be saved?

Unfortunately the Rover did not Survive the crash

note: that's the 2nd time We Crashed on the Moon, the Last Crash was Beresheet and The Last Crash before Beresheet was 48 years ago and that was the Soviet's Luna Probes

Despite the disaster that has happened in the lunar surface, the development of the Chandrayaan 2 addon will still be ongoing with a hypothetical scene of what could've been India's first moon landing.

Nothing will stop Orbiter in landing Vikram successfully to the surface of the Moon :):)


My will:)


So I applied horizon level and applied hover and it lifted up and then started to rotate and then ended up here upside down in the moon

Sure but why? The rover is really done it is the flight dynamics of the lander and deployment that is left on the lander.

Or go the AMSO route by simulating both the Hypothetical landing and the actual failure of the Vikram.
