Didn't they do that in Ben Bova's "Return to Mars", or maybe just plain "Mars"?

It would be a neat thing to do, if there were another mission objective nearby, and within resonable rover distance.

Well, i know spirit died kinda close to some scientific stuffs... its just a secondary objective, and probably wont happen. It would be nice to do though

I thought we we're not using XR5s, XR2s and DGIVs.

That was the old OFMM.

I would like to deal with the unmanned satellites that are used in OFMM. If you want to spread out more in terms of users in this project then I am fine just taking on OFMM-1 and/or OFMM-3.

There is a \\\'plot hole\\\' between choosing the landing site and sending the Lander there, I suggest that an unmanned Mars scout lander be stuck in between those two missions.

This unmanned Mars scout lander could either be the lander in
Venus Express
or
Phoenix
would be the ones I would pick.

there is? The two lander missions are specifically to gather more data whilst the human mission is en route.

Not a bad idea and it really depends on the landing site. If it close enough to an existing lander site then it can certainly be a mssion objective.

As I said in my first post I 've included vessels just for an idea about what the missions will require. It's not final or definitive. If you feel that that XR series shouldn't be used then say so here and people can debate it. After that the missison plan cna be edited accordingly.

Well I'm fine with the XR2 and the DGIV but don't you think the XR5 is a tad bit overkill?

Not for me to say. I'm not flying the missions, you guys are so if you don't want to use the XR-5 you don't use it - thats why this is a discussion thread and not a set in concrete final missions list.

I really would like to leave a bace base on Mars, as well. If we're landing two XR2s, we should be able to make a nice sized UCGO base.

Also, even though we're not constructing a vessel, I don't think the XR5s are at all necessary. We could just as easily use something less overkill to refuel Cosmos. But since we're not going for hard realism, I guess I don't really don't mind it. And with the size of Cosmos, it might not be overkill.

New rule. If the 'bace' term is used I'll guarentee you a mission glued to the front of a probe thats fired into the sun.

Cosmos needs 491,500kg for a full tank. Find me something that can deliver that - or several somethings and we'll use it.

This might be an option
Abora-C tanker


300,000kg to LEO but a little difficult to handle.

Here is my OFMM patch design, made in Inkscape. It is based off the ISA logo (because garyw is heading this project - however, you don't need to fly as ISA; you can use any skin you want). The green line is based off the OrbitMFD path.

Alright then, here is the new logo (black and white versions):


And here are high resolution transparent PNG files for both black, and white.
I haven't made any sigs yet, but feel free to make your own.



Back on the topic of the missions, I guess XR5s will do for refueling. If anyone else wants to leave a base or something on Mars, I guess they should chime in.

I made my patch because I love mission patches and I wanted to try designing one.
If you're flying a mission and want a patch, you can send me a PM about what you want (it's like Eli13). Remember that this is optional, and a mission doesn't need to wait for a patch for it to fly.

I may have missed it, but I think having a Crew Return Vehicle docked to the mothership at all times would be a good idea. Something with a low mass that can be used to perform a direct re-entry back to Earth just in case. Orion, CTV, Dragon, Pollux, Antares, Soyuz etc.
