Updating the HALO and PPE. When this is actually built will have to update again:)

Artist concept is all we have for the PPE. I have seen gold foil, black foil? silver foil.

I went with the silver foil.

Not sure on how the solar arms deployed.

I have the Halo and PPE attached as one vessel.

One thing I have noticed is on the docks they have a wireframe alignment fins rather than solid ones?

I got the PPE and HALO on a falcon HVY. But not sure how to add custom fairing. Maybe in the cfg? @BrianJ

I made a custom FAIRING. Not sure which logos to put on? MAXAR and Northern Gruman?

Going to remake the PPE and Halo as one vessel. So it is easier to load in Orbiter.

I make get her to launch on the SLS. But it looks like the Heavy Falcon is what it will launch on? I can get on the Falcon HVY but not sure where to tell which fairings.

Also it looks like for the gateway a new RMS will be built

Yes. And it will be easier to add tp the Falcon HVY or SLS. I may just have press a ket and the HGA go to preset points.

UGH. I realize I had built the HALO/PPE backwards. Now it is correct.

Not yet figured out to get her into space on the Falcon Hvy. I can get her of the Falcon. But not the fairings @BrianJ

I guess next is the I HAb.

Hi,
am I right in thinking you need a different fairing option for the FalconHeavy?
Easiest way for me to do that is by another .cfg file option.
If so, and you can give me the fairing dimensions, it probably won't take too long :)
Cheers,
BrianJ

Thanks
Now HGA are set.
Yes. On the fairing. I think a cfg with the gateway fairing. I basically took a FH fairing and stretched it out. the z length is 21.9 x 2.69 for one side

That might fit HALO/PPE, but the shape is going to be different. Just stretching a mesh tends to give sub-optimal visual results in my experience.
Also, I think (???) somewhere I may have seen that is is going to be a 3 piece design? Or maybe my brain is making stuff up.

Hi,
@Max-Q thanks for the links etc. - I didn't read very far, but couldn't see anything about 3-piece fairing - if I'm missing it, please post link or quote! :) Yes, stretching meshes can sometimes produce unintended results, but I think just moving the conical section up might be OK, with a bit of retexturing.

@gattispilot I'll try and put something together over the weekend. Thanks for the dimensions.

I suggest we move any further posts about Falcon Heavy fairing options over to the FH thread here:

Cheers,
Brian

I have the PPE and Habitat module with sun tracking. But I wonder if I should? From the image they are 90 degrees out of synch?
