I'm making a MapMFD clone. Before I got far, I dove into the world (hehe) of map projections.
Old MapMFD on the right. My MFD on the left.

The first displayed here is the Azimuthal Equidistant projection, better known as the UN flag.

The big challenge now is to make the panning correct for all projections. :coffee:

Great!

Do you handle the number of points different? I'm asking because the original MapMFD hits performance on some older systems and maybe your MapMFD could be a cure for that.

Not yet. But I plan to. I guess I could leave a setting for plotting every nth map point, and thus reduce the resolution. (much like I did when creating this: https://www.orbithangar.com/showAddon.php?id=bb528dcb-1b0f-48e8-8d7b-02c72e3bf489).
Or maybe even get it to automatically choose a lower resolution when fully zoomed out. I'll have to see. :hmm:

Bonus projection: now with a transverse Mercator projection. Yellow orbit is ISS, green orbit is a DeltaGlider in a 3:1 resonance orbit (exactly three orbits per day, and thus the orbital track lining up every three orbits).

Interesting! Polar projections are useful for future missions - moon south pole landings.
Can you make it display some bitmaps as background ? Would be useful for altimetry or slope maps - and they exist for the Moon and Mars ;)

I'm not sure if I know how to add a BMP in a MFD. I did it with my GeostationaryMFD for Orbiter2010, but removed it in Orbiter2016 as I could not get it to work anymore. If anyone has a guide for doing it, then please let me know.

But anyway, I don't think a BMP is a good way of doing it, as it wouldn't support zooming, unless you have a huge BMP of the planet/moon.

I could maybe implement something like what is available in enjo's Topographic Map MFD.

But I'll have to look into it, if it's feasible at all. No promises. ;)

:thumbup:
Watching the second screenshot I wondered if it would be possible to rotate the globe?
It kind of asks for it!

A hopefully unlikely scenario.

Just started working on making mine scale.

Kushiro, Hokkaido, Japan visible below the starboard radiator.

Sunset from the cupola.

PS: Curious how to activate the middle MFD in the cupola. Also the Dextre control panel. Are those public mods?

The SPDM/SSRMS panel in the Cupola is not operational. The middle MFD isn't functional either, unless you use the Cupola_VB, that Fred18 did that comes with the VesselBuilder1 add on.

Working on LM Rendezvous Radar/Transponder code for NASSP.

Thought I'd grab this picture through Colombia's sextant, of Eagle coming up to meet us from below.

Hey there, long time no see.
After the lockdown I was eager to get back to Orbiter !

Here's my "few" screeshots of my last flight.

MECO and ET separation


Some RMS operation


Approaching the ISS


Below the Cupola, ready for the RPM


Only a few meters away



Docked


Undocking with a view


Leaving the ISS


MM304, EI-5, AoA40


Coming in hot !


Final Rwy 15


And safe on the ground !



And the best part is that I never knew you could take the Crawler and attach the MLP ! SO I took a ride around lol


Yeah don't mind the 4m hold lol



Stay safe all !

Really nice pics!
Glad to see I am not the only one trying SSU.
