I can appreciate the frustration, Tex. Your work on this project has been truly amazing, and the resulting station is absolutely stunning. I'm sure I speak for many, Tex ... hang in there and we'll get this Space Station built.At this point, no one has yet been able to fill this mission. If you think you can do it, then do it and post your scenario please.
As a general note to everyone; I know I haven't been able to work on this project as often as we would all like, but if I don't have pilots to fly these missions, then I will rapidly lose interest in keeping the project alive.
Let's hold off for a later mission. I'm confident one will open up, but for now I think you will need some experience in the XR5 before tackling this flight.EricEvan said:Ok. I'll see if I can fly it. I've never flown an XR5 before, but how hard can it be?
Thanks! It is your mission now.usmc3891 said:If its not done by the time I get off of work tonight I'll fly it and post it
Good idea. I'll start contacting the remaining pilots to see who is still interested in flying their mission.On the flight roster - I suggest we do a ready-check on the remaining pilots, with say a 5 day response-timeout, and then re-load the roster with those ready to fly.
Eric - suggest you jump into Flight 1 and learn as you go. (Download the latest OFSS package - it has a roll-up of all the flights as scenario files). The Soyuz craft have a beautiful launch sequence on autopilot. One you get into orbit, apart from some ship-specific key sequences (e.g. to ready the engines), the core simulation sill feels the same. Soyuz is interesting though because of the relatively much less powerful thrusters, and getting used to pulse mode thrusting too. Ariane - she's a sexy craft to fly too.Ok. Would learning how to fly the Ariane 5 and Soyuz help as well?
Sorry, I added this bit in maybe before you saw it.I'm still up for #22 Soyuz TMA.
If you're interested, if not, no problem, you still have #22 as of now. :thumbup:If you are slated for a future flight, but would rather switch your flight for this one, you can do that!
