This package adds the functional virtual cockpit to Descartes Deep Space Vessel from Greg Burch. The model of cockpit is from the original addon, I only put controls to it. Required addons: - Original Descartes: [ame="http://www.orbithangar.com/searchid.php?ID=2786"]DESCARTES Deep Space Vessels[/ame] - Descartes Upgrades and Extras: [ame="http://www.orbithangar.com/searchid.php?ID=2865"]DESCARTES Upgrades and Extras[/ame] - Payload Manager which is a part of Universal Cargo Deck: [ame="http://www.orbithangar.com/searchid.php?ID=3262"]Universal Cargo Deck, release 4[/ame] - UMmu nbsp;Optional addon: - Universal RMS: [ame="http://www.orbithangar.com/searchid.php?ID=3373"]Universal Remote Manipulator System, release 3[/ame] Thanks to Greg Burch for this very immersive ship. I recommend it to everyone, with or without this VC.

I can't get the ship to show. In the scenario I get the RMS but that's all. Descartes doesn't show up at all. I installed it just like it was packed and I have both required add ons.

Yes. I just redownloaded it to be sure he didn't update it or something when I wasn't looking. It's the same version I have so that's not the case. Also there's nothing odd in the Orbiter log file. It all looks like Orbiter started OK just no Descartes showing. The regular version of Descartes works OK just not the TI version.

I would like to help, but have no ideas why it is not showing. As always said in this situation, try on clean Orbiter install with both Descartes packages. Does anybody else has this problem?

And spacecraft3.dll is not required for any TI addon.

Have you already separately downloaded and installed the upgraded Descartes? Also, although it says it's optional, I had to install the Universal RMS to get mine to work correctly.

Great addon, by the way, making an already fun craft even better. Now if someone would provide a slightly widened DSUM mod so I could house the X2 in there, it would be perfect!

I have often found that when having problems with things "NOT SHOWING UP" in the orbiter that changing graphics settings both in resolution and especially the 16 or 32 bit setttings will often cure the problem.i had this same problem with the T.I. shuttle pb as the mfd displays would not show up in the cockpit till i changed these settings.there is no "fixed" setting that i know of that is a fix-all, butyou can try different combos and see what happens.also being in either windowed or fullscreen mode can make a difference.and on an a personal aside i would like to say that the TOTAL IMMERSION series of addons for the VC's are the best thing since buttered toast! PLEASE by all means keep up the outstanding work.Thanks

I just discovred greg burch's addon and this one , and they are great. But Iwas wondering, with the TI ADAM SMITH how can you attach a pod in the pod bay ? there's no docking port and I can't acces the attachment point management with A.

Use Universal Cargo Deck:
[ame="http://orbithangar.com/searchid.php?ID=3262"]Universal Cargo Deck, release 4[/ame]

P.S. It is in the list of required addons by the way.

A little late to the party, but I just finally tried the TI addons again and got them to work, and I gotta say they're a great touch. The Bullet's always been one of my favorites and now it's even more excellent.

On the Descartes, though, I can't get the centrifuge to rotate properly. The "K" key isn't doing anything, and I fiddled with the "wheel" parameter in the default .scn file and got it to move, but not indefinitely like normal and I haven't been able to fully reverse engineer what the values for it mean.

Is it supposed to be rotating in the default scenario? I've been having problems with the rotation animation for the Celestium 1 and 2 stations, as well (or possibly just Orbiter's reading of the "k" key... the mp3 player's weird, too), so something might just be interfering with the spacecraft.dll suite on my end.

I don't think the TI version of the Descartes is spacecraft3 anymore, but a replacement dll that uses the meshes. To get the wheel to spin you need switch to the rear control panel (in the Command Center behind the cockpit), and look across the aisle to the panel that has the spin on/off buttons. It helps to zoom.

I also really like the TI version of Descartes, but unfortunately Burch modeled that ship before he was aware of Orbiter "Standard" scale. In other words, UMMU suits and other ships (even later ships in Burch's fleet) are off scale. It's a simple matter to resize the Descartes class (as I have done for personal use) but it breaks the TI.

Hahaha oh man, that tiny thing? No wonder I couldn't figure out a way to do it. Thanks for the tip.

I see what you mean about the scale - The docking rings don't really match with things like the stock DG, but the DGIV is flush enough with them you can't tell, and I didn't think it was too egregious a departure for the EVA figures. Mainly I was interested in dialing back the RCS to a more believable level and redoing some textures I didn't care for. Maybe I'll try rescaling it but if it completely breaks the TI feature it's not worth it - I like having 4 MFDs too much.
I wonder if I could rescale the Bullet exhaust, too...Fiddling with the .ini only changes stuff like mass and RCS power. I gave the stock one a colossal plume I really enjoy and I want it back...

Howdy,

I posted this in the Descartes link but should have posted it here instead.

Could you please make the Total Immersion - Descartes D3D9 compatible?

It crashes when loading whe sim with Orbiter_ng.exe.

Here is my Orbiter Log:

Just a suggestion, but you might also want to post this over on the D3D9 thread. D3D9 is still in active development and Jarmonik might be able to figure this out.
