Me too. Then there be the challenge of getting the touchdown points right in the Ranger and Lander.

So on the Lander I have this for 2016:
Code:
static const int ntdvtx = 3;
static TOUCHDOWNVTX tdvtx[ntdvtx] = {
	{ _V(0, -0.005, 5), 147872, 102004, 3.2, 0.8 },
	{ _V(-2, -0.005, -5), 107872, 62004, 3.2, 0.4 },
	{ _V(2, -0.005, -5), 107872, 62004, 3.2, 0.4 },//,

	
	//	{ _V(-2, 1.6, 1.5), 1e6, 1e5, 3.2, 0 },
	//	{ _V(2, 1.6, 1.5), 1e6, 1e5, 3.2, 0 }
};
Code:
void LANDER6::clbkSetClassCaps(FILEHANDLE cfg)
{
	SetSize(11);
	SetEmptyMass(11000.0);
	SetCW(0.3, 0.3, 0.6, 0.9);
	SetWingAspect(1.7);
	SetWingEffectiveness(2.5);
	SetCrossSections(_V(71.59, 206.57, 50.58));
	SetRotDrag(_V(3.5, 3.5, 3.5));
	if (GetFlightModel() >= 1) {
		SetPitchMomentScale(1e-4);
		SetBankMomentScale(1e-4);
	}
	SetPMI(_V(32.49, 38.14, 23.67));
	SetTrimScale(0.08);
	SetCameraOffset(_V(0, 3, 10.1));
	//SetTouchdownPoints(_V(0, -.003, 5.7), _V(-3.448, -.003, -5.0), _V(3.448, -.003, -5.0));;
	SetTouchdownPoints(tdvtx, ntdvtx);
But it slides off the pad.

The ranger is another thing. The nose is in the ground and the rear gear is in the air.

To all,
We're aware of the 160828 issues with the Lander and the Ranger and we're working on a fix. We're also anxious to implement Woo482's oMMU to allow us to place a crew in our vessels in lieu of a functioning UMmu. Rest assured the Endurance Space Exploration System for 160828 is being actively developed!

Also I parked a LAnder on a pad at KSC. Applied Horizon level and slid off the pad into the grass and then to the sun

Put a dg there. set the gear and did the Level and slid off.

So for mass like a parking brake? or more friction?

So here is the Ranger You can see she is about nose is in the ground.


Code:
static const int ntdvtx = 3;
static TOUCHDOWNVTX tdvtx[ntdvtx] = {
	{ _V(0, -1.31835, 5), 107872, 62004, 3.2, 0.8 },
	{ _V(-2, -1.31835, -5), 107872, 62004, 3.2, 0.4 },
	{ _V(2, -1.31835, -5), 107872, 62004, 3.2, 0.4 },//,
};
The model is level also.

I thought I would have been landed rather than orbiting?

I've tried landing both the Lander and Ranger in the pad area of KSC using pads 1 & 2 running Orbiter 160828. Both landings fail. The Lander remains upright but slides off the pad and through an adjacent building. The Ranger also slides off the pad but is pitches nose-down to end up inverted and underground. The Rangers action is likely influenced by the compliance of its landing gear but both ships are affected by the fact that the KSC pad area is not flat. Is there a way to flatten the 160828 KSC pad area? Is this planned for an update to 160828?
