Where did you get the payload masses for NROL-108 and NROL-87?

Are both 5,000 kg each?
I think he assumed them to be 5000 kilos as we don't have public data of their masses.

An educated guess. Both must be under <10,000 kg as they were both RTLS landings. 5,000 kg looked right as they were also high inclination orbits, but they could be anywhere from 8,000 kg to something smaller than 2,000 kg. No way to know.

I just looked at the schedule and SLS should be on Pad B at the same time Axiom-1 launches - would you guys be okay if I included the SLS addon for this scenario for visual purposes?

@Kyle. where are the pre-2020 SpaceX launches? I have just reinstalled your add-on and its requirements.

They're available on this thread, but I won't be providing support for them. I lost all of those due to my SSD failing on me with my Orbiter installation back in 2020.

I think that should be published as a separate add-on, otherwise people will traffic in this thread clamoring for pre-2020 missions.

I can't change the title of this thread as it wasn't created by me, but the addon on OHM states 2020 onwards.

You are welcomed to release them if you wish.

The OHM add-on says that this add-on contains "every SpaceX mission so far through the year 2021". Please rectify it to say that this add-on contains every SpaceX mission from 2020 to present. Also, I have published the 2015-2019 SpaceX missions at here, and I would like to extend that to include pre-2015 missions.

I made scenarios for Falcon 9 flights from 2010 to 2014 in my Launch Sounds for Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy addon (located on Flights 1-13.zip file). Only 8 out of 13 total flights from that time period were created, but you can include the Config/Meshes/Scenario files into your collection if you want to

NOTE
: The Falcon 9 from flights 1 to 5 require glider's SpaceX launch vehicles and Dragon addon to represent the v1.0 version of the rocket

Yes, that's extremely helpful. Updated masses for next release. My guess is that also includes the 4 torsion rods?

I think Falcon 9's second stage is powerful enough to send the same no. of OneWeb satellites to its desired orbit as it was planned before on the Soyuz, but it might need a Fregat-like stage if somehow OneWeb decided to launch their satellites to higher orbits than what was previously planned
