Thanks for the kind words. What makes it, is the texture job, done by Felix24.


And a big shout out to the Dx9 team for the shadows and reflections.

May I ask if this is an Add-On or was there any postprocess of the screenshot?

A little bit of alternative history here...

May 16th 2015
After seven years in space, the New Horizons 2 spacecraft swings by Uranus on its way to the KBO 47171 Lempo (1999 TC36). At the time of the flyby, Uranus is near its equinox, allowing scientific examination of the planet, its ring system, and its moons like never before...

In reality, this sibling craft was unfortunately cancelled due to a plutonium shortage :(

Are you doing this for us orbiter fans ? Would be cool to see a new Capital Saturn orbiter with a Titan lander maybe a small rover.
Couple of notes today NASA is sending a helicopter to Mars hopefully on the 2020 rover, NASA approved mounting a camera on a solar wing to show Orion in flight " Golden Eye"
I thought I heard today the last ape Born at White Sands died today at this Florida home. It parents were use for the tests back in the 60's and 70's

Columbia on-orbit in -ZSI (PLB to sun, interial) attitude for Solar Constant-2 (SOLCON-2) observations, MET 000/07:15:31. First experiment run on STS-107 by the Red Team consisting of CDR Rick Husband, MS2 Kalpana Chawla, MS4 Laurel Clark and PS1 Ilan Ramon. The Blue Team consisting of PLT William McCool, MS1 David Brown and MS3 Michael Brown are in their first 6 hour sleep period of the mission (lights out was at MET 000/04:00:00, per the schedule).

What about those two black “fangs” on left and right side of the FRCS? Issue with mesh/textures?

It's a texture issue alignment issue with the current default SSU orbiter textures, not just Columbia. The mapping is optimized for your high-res textures which causes some misalignment with our medium-res default textures.

I see. My Columbia (ORIG) and Challenger Textures are pretty much ready, just waiting fr the mesh to be done and finalized.

The new OMS pods for the whole fleet are also ready.


Here you can see the Black and the white tiles on the fwd section of the pods which I re-drawed from scratch in order to match with real ones


The left OMS pod (to the right in the pic) shows the new layout and texturing

As I wrote in the SSU dev thread, the orbiter mesh is done. I don't intend to touch it again bar some missed minor things that I have overlooked.

NASA May Launch Orion Crew Module on Commercial Rocket

The Falcon Heavy payload capacity is at 64 ton.
The Orion at 36 ton (LAS+CM+SM+Fairing) + ICPS at 31 ton are just above this, but not much. The stack looks top-heavy, but made it to orbit.

Will do, but have to update the Orion for this. The fairings are used twice (for Orion and the Icps) and need extra attachment points. Also have to check if it fits to the new release of FalconHeavy.
