In orbit, they turned off most MDUs to save power.
There are no keyboard keybinds to interact with the Shuttle DPS/GPC, we have to click in the cockpit like we would click in a cockpit in a flight simulator.So I am back from Australia, my first trip to southern hemisphere to see southern stars... I SAW THEM!!! But even there I followed SSV development.
1) May I suggest to add an option to load sound file during launch (like pointing to "STS-57_launch.wav") to have real TV commentaries for the the first a couple of minutes of flight.
2) I never worked much with ITEM x, MM202, etc... what are keyboard(?) shortcuts to activate them, somehow I could find the info.
Thanks, I see nowThere are no keyboard keybinds to interact with the Shuttle DPS/GPC, we have to click in the cockpit like we would click in a cockpit in a flight simulator.
So for SSV, you have 2 scrachtpachs above the panel C3, you click on these numbers and items to select what you want to write (that will appears in one of the MDU that displays the DPS).
If you're new I can recommend this video by Tim13 that gives a general idea of the Shuttle avionics (it's for SSU but it's still the same with SSV for now)
The 3D model isn't what scares me (yes, it's not easy), I'm more concerned about GPCs, IDPs, ADCs, MDUs, DEUs, DDUs, DUs, basically all the unseen parts that drive the displays, lights, talkbacks, etc.Hi,
When the time to update the cockpit arrives, I would recommend to contact Christ Kuhn . He modeled a fantastic 3D model of the Space Shuttle flight deck and allowed Flightgear guys to use his model under GPL, although without textures. Lot of work to clean and adapt to Orbiter will still remain, but at least it's not starting from scratch.
