Hi rawash,this is a wonderful tool,it lands,and docks everything I have tested it with,but one question,I am not great with vectors what would the Distance in XYZ be, stopped about 25 feet in front of the chosen dock,so in other words, how do I enter this in the Dis box?Thanks
In this case,the vector is only the 3 coordinates in 3D space of a point from a another point (used as reference).
X-term defines the lateral axis, Y-term the vertical axis and the Z-term the longitudinal axis.
Orbiter sign convention is + for right, up & fore (left-handed).
To check, you can use the visual helpers (ctrl+F9), coordinates axes.
To Position an object at 25feet (7.62meters) in front of the target dock (the vector origin), enter "0 0 7.62" or "x0 y0 z7.62" in the input box (docking when the 2 docks are set).
In the case of trim alignment, the 2 points to be considered to define the vector are the Center of Gravity of each vessel. So, enters '0 0 7.62' will position the target vessel Cog at 25feet from the focus vessel CoG (it could be inside the vessel!). The vector origin is not the same that in the case above.
