Yes, just by inserting the line MODE 10 in the scenario file, as shown below.
But: This requires an updated dll and additional meshes, currently under development. Expect to publish on the weekend.

The LAS looks great! Good work!

---------- Post added at 04:50 AM ---------- Previous post was at 03:11 AM ----------

This is a 3d art project that my little brother made, trying to better my 3d design skills. Using some sketches I have, and the paint program on our computer, he came up with this.

Your brothers painting has a lot of details in it, like the cutouts for the LAS-struts in the top cover, or the rotational thrusters near the base. Nice work!

Is there a way you could attach this to a Delta Heavy?

Yes, and there's a few addons to choose a Delta 4 from. Anyway, one option is [ame="http://orbithangar.com/searchid.php?ID=3388"]Velcro Rockets[/ame] and [ame="http://orbithangar.com/searchid.php?ID=3462"]Velcro EELVs[/ame], which the scenario I'm posting below uses. I know the capsule sticks out from the fairing, but otherwise it should hit the spot. Hope you enjoy.

A new version is out! It can be found on the front page of this thread. Verison 02. Has LAS and fairings.

Attached picture is based on the addons and scenario posted by orbitingpluto.
I reduced the SERIESBURN z-distance to -2.5 and deleted the lines starting with 'fairing', PAYLOAD fair1 and 2.

It is not perfect, fairings show a radial gap to the launcher, cradle missing, but it is getting along :)

I don't think this is the EFT. It's the MPCV as it would be operationally? I've got to finish Direct so I can get this mated to it.

I am aware that the upcoming EFT-1 flight would be nice in Orbiter. But no, it is as PhantomCruiser says: I go for the operational MPCV as a key element for further solar system exploration.

For a - kind of makeshift - EFT flight you are welcomed to use the current development version and strap it on top of a Velcro Delta Heavy as described above.

Ah, sorry I did not get that!

Download the attached file and extract the file "mpcv-hull-w.dds" into your Orbiter Textures directory. It will overwrite the current white texture, giving the Orion a black tile texture.

It's a hack, but does not look too bad. In the future a scenario file parameter may be used to control the visual appearance, black or white.

So, does the LAS actually pull the MPCV?

Sure does. Just remember to jettison Orion from the stage it's attached to, or you'll see a lot of smoke and bother going nowhere fast. Before you wonder, I am speaking from experience.:)

You should put Orion and the LAS on gattispilot's SLS. I can't run any of your launch scenarios, and I don't know why. What Falcon 9 version do you use?

You said Mode 10 gets you the LAS and fairings. Is it the fairing between the command Module and vessel?

I think I will need to modify my part that holds the Orion in.

For testing I use BrianJ's falconheavy_141025.

For the SLS I use the attached scenario. Modified the payload section to remove the LAS, but left your fairings in place, as they fit much better.
With fairings I mean the 3 panels between SLS and Orion.

SLA 3 -2.00 -2.00 0.00 ; Note:SLA 3 <--
....
PAYLOAD SLA1 slsorionfair1 slsorionfair1 0.00 0.00 1.0 0.00 0.00 1.00
PAYLOAD SLA2 slsorionfair2 slsorionfair2 0.00 0.00 1.0 0.00 0.00 1.00
PAYLOAD SLA3 slsorionfair3 slsorionfair3 0.00 0.00 1.0 0.00 0.00 1.00
; PAYLOAD SLA4 slsorionlas1 slsorionlas1 0.00 0.00 88.25 0.00 0.00 1.00
END

I guess a kind of attachement kit will be required for each launcher type, consisting of the 3 panels (fairings?) and the cradle to connect the Orion to the launcher.
