Number 19 please? :D
You got it! :thumbup:

{...}might need alittle insight of how everything was done in OFSS I and II and how to do it in OFSS III. (for example, is it all done in real time, what do i need to report, how do i report it)
It's pretty straight forward really. Each time someone complete's their flight, they paste the contents from the (Current state).scn into the "OFSS III - Post Flight Scenarios" thread. I then use that to create the next flights launch scenario and update the package on OHM. I will send you a reminder PM when your flight is coming up as well.

Download the package, create a new Orbiter 2010-P1 installation and install all the required addons. Each time a new flight package is released, extract it into your Orbiter installation and read the enclosed documentation. :tiphat:

Simulated time. The launch dates are only used for the scenario.

I'm trying to release each flight package straight away since I've already prepared everything ahead of time. How fast that happens ultimately depends on how long it takes you guys to finish your mission. No need to rush it though, do enjoy the experience. ;)

Sign me up, I'm looking to start a commercial interest that runs parallel to the missions, so we would be up there installing hotels and ferrying crew back and forth from earth.

Just an observation, flight #11 is slated for Columbia, but doesn't Columbia lack an ODS?

Hi :) I'm getting back into orbiter after a long time hiatus. I would love to help with this project. Can you slot me for Flight 17?

Hey thanks for a spot on flight 20!
I actually completed mission 2 last night in under 12 hours. Connected the cupola, docked the DOCK1 and also docked the XR5 and circularised the orbit.
Successful yet hard 12 G reentry (survived in the XR5).
I practiced ultrarealism during the RMS construction of the station by deploying a ummu outside to "watch and inspect" the process. Through the eyes only of the EVA I remote controlled the RMS to successfully build the station.

Anyone else do the challenge?
I'm hitting the simulator now for the big 20 flight!!

I was thinking that if you keep the replays from the flights and send them to me I could make a video history of OFSS III to post on youtube. Anyone interested?

That's a pretty cool idea. I don't have much of an "eye" for video editing, so I'll send you my playback (or interesting snippets).
