...and maybe in addition to technical difficulties, Polyus did not achieve orbit because it was difficult to maneuver (?)

...from the old addon CCCPCOMBI by dinghao
Polyus didn't reach orbit because the attitude control was confused. They had to launch it upside down and then it had to make a 180 degree pitch to fire its orbital insertion motor. They forgot to tell the Polyus' onboard control system that it was being launched backwards, so once it finished pitching 180 degrees, it thought it was flying backwards, so it pitched another 180 degrees before firing its orbital insertion motor. Deorbit was quite quick. Again, not testing your attitude control software in an actual mission simulation before launch. Same problem the 1st Ariane 5 launch had.

I stand corrected! So Buran lifted-off in the early morning instead of night :salute:
Yes it did, because it landed 2 orbits later (+/-3h), in daylight, not far from the launch pad.

Shuttle Fleet and Buran V4.8 work in O2016 but cannot take off. via scn editing use Buran as payload
Is the landing of Shuttle Fleet and Buran worked in 2016? I thought they will be quicksanding on the runway after landing.
dialog UMMU 2.0 fix
put in a separate folder "orbiter.exe" and "Orbiter_ng.exe" install to this folder Ummu
Two files needed
Modules\Ummu.dll
Meshes\Ummu\ver.dtf
the system assumes that ummu is installed
(temporary measure pending release UMMU O2016)
Can you publish the dummy UMMU in this forum? Because users like me use Windows 7 and cannot always be able to edit the extension.

Shuttle Fleet and Buran rather not working than working in 02016 we'll hope "Buria" "Buran" "Baikal" will appear after release STS 2016 (gattispilot) ;)

It's still the 2010 module of the UMMU...you can just place the dll only on the "Modules" folder....Orbiter will think UMMU is installed and the dialog box will disappear below the screen

Oh...I converted Polyus into VesselBuilder....not quite ready yet, having trouble with the RCS

It's been fascinating when I found out it actually has 3 fairings! Two on top and one on the bottom covering its antenna

DeltaTug is s longtime favorite of mine. Definitely a must-have for more realistic deltaglider operations.

Congratulations @kulch. I really like your add-ons a lot, the ones I like and miss the most are the SpaceElevator, and the glorious TX spaceplane. In addition to the super handy UniversalCargoDeck that I use to attach small spaceplanes (like the DeltaGlider) to larger ones (like the TX or Moach's G42-200).
:cheers:
