OK. I rewatched the video. So the bottom of the connector is open like a big notch. the mast folds into in. then array arms fold in. the arrays may need to rotate?

The other question is on the ends. From the video the internal hatches are square. but it looks like the external are round?

So on the connector cut the notch have round hatchs like on the dock rings. have the mast fold up and arrays.

Most likely the docking ports would be identical to the IDA interfaces that are currently used on the ISS, even though the visuals look different in a way

Thanks. On the ends I will use the round docks without the pedals. Or do we need the pedals?

On the video the docking ring is round. But the hatch is square. With a docking target

Now we get this. stowed and deployed. On the docking ring. I think it should be like the right one. I can redo the texture so the hatch outline is square and the docking target is brighter. I can also make the pedals wireframe.

I am going with this: I have the solar array to follow the sun. I guess the radiator should also?

Here she is. Not sure about the Radiator position though?

Keys in order to unfold
1 lowers mast
2 unfolds the arms
5 rotates the arms
6 opens array

Shift 3 stores or scans the solar arrays
shift 4 stores or scan the radiator.

Flexcraft docked.. I need to find the code and mesh for the flexcraft and modify it.

I did notice the texture of the main base distorted.

Fixed the mesh. I docked a life module to the connector and looks correct. Docked a dream chaser and looked good. But when I docked this dreamchaser it looks to be upside down? I updated the zip with the correct mesh and new life/main module

I got it from here:

I will try to put a zip of the Orbital Reef. # vessels. The connector with panels. One module and then one module with the dock for the SPS. I will put the SPS with it.

The docking tunnel is part of the mesh

Great work, absolutely good looking space station! I get 100 fps with onboard graphics, so no problem.

I took the Dragon for a test flight to the Orbital Reef. It will need some docking tunnels or adaptors, to allow for clearnace between lthe approaching vessel and the station. Also would need some documentation, which docking port is where.

Here you go. I think you might be able to dock on the ends rather than the sides?

There is no interior. In the image I wonder where the SPS is?
