This addon adds real-life launch commentaries to all 135 individual Shuttle missions from 1981-2011. This is a major recompile of my previous releases and updated according to the latest development of gattispilot's Space Transportation System 2016. Most payloads running previously on spacecraft4 or genericvessel.dll were now converted to VB! As always, credits to the original creators of shuttle payload add-ons!

REQUIRED ADDONS:
NOTES:
  • Countdown timers start immediately at the beginning of the scenario.
  • On STS-51-F (Challenger), DO NOT FAST FORWARD TIME SHORTLY AFTER SRB-SEP because its WAV still plays right up until ATO callout at T+5 minutes. A silent gap is present in the audio file itself
  • Launch audio for STS-30 (Atlantis) is uploaded separately here
  • On STS-37 (Atlantis), I included a patch for the Compton Observatory because in my installation, I don't know why it causes CTD. This patch only rearranges the attachment points from the original .INI file
  • On STS-46 (Atlantis), a patch for EURECA was also added for the same reasons above
  • See the Statistics.txt for the info on when the launch audio starts from the countdown
  • See the Controls.txt for the specific controls of VB-converted payloads. VesselBuilder handles controls slightly differently than Spacecraft4/GenericVessel does

- Updated scenarios of previous missions 1 to 40.

- Addon requirements were updated above
