Deep Space Communications Satellite v0.3
River Crab 2011
Made using Vinka's Spacecraft3 (not included)
The Deep Space Communications Satellite is a realistic and versatile communications uplink spacecraft to use in your scenarios. Features custom animation and exhaust textures.
Ensure that Spacecraft3.dll is installed.
Unzip all files in DSCS03.zip into your Orbiter root folder.
1 scenario: DSCS deployed in areostationary orbit
Source code and original Spacecraft3 .INI file in the sources folder
K - deploy solar arrays
- High-gain and UHF antennae
- DSN network-compatible
- Lightweight construction
- MON3/UDMH storable propellant
- Aerojet R-4D orbit engine
- First public release
- Updated PMI and cross sections with more accurate values

- Fixed mistake of confusing "fuel mass" for "wet mass"; spacecraft now performs according to specifications (thanks dgatsoulis for the catch!)
A world of thanks to Vinka for Spacecraft3, and Dr. Martin Schweiger, for his excellent space flight simulator.
