Thanks for the tips Gary!

Important notice - several documentations and configuration files have to be changed to reflect the name change from CSS to OFSS3, so the first flight date is not yet confirmed but should be soon.

Be sure to check out the crew assignment thread to request for missions.

A suggestion - Some people would just wander in, see this as a great idea, and want to participate...
And don't know how.
A FAQ would be nice - do you record flights, pass around scenarios, fly live in OMP, etc? What addons are to be used and where to get them?
These kind of things.

I've already created documentation with all the required addons and info necessary for the flights etc. We'll release the package on OHM as soon as it's ready and each time someone completes their flight, we'll upload a new package for the next flight. The turn around time will be fast so we keep things moving.

All OFSS III discussions moved to the new 'Orbiter Forum Space Station III' sub-forum.

While the OFSS II sub-forum is hidden from the home page now, you can still access it from the old URL or by visiting the OFSS II social group.

We're not going to use a social group for OFSS III. We're going to keep it simple in this forum, so anyone can post and participate without the need to join a social group. Packages will be uploaded to Orbithangar for each new flight. You can post your screen shots, post flight scenarios, and discussions in this OFSS III forum.

It looks like the OFSS3 ROS has some incompatible docking ports connected: APAS-SSVP between Zarya and Zvezda, and CBM-SSVP between Neesys and Zarya.

And these Soyuz/Progress need a Pirs or Rassvet between them and Zvezda.

That screen shot is actually from the early planning when I was using the scenario editor, it needs to be updated, my fault. After I actually flew the missions I realized I had them backwards. Zarya will dock to Neesys with it's opposite side which is for CBM adapters. So Zvezda would obviously dock on the other side of Zarya which works (I tested this in the scenario).

EDIT - Actually Zvezda can't really translate, so the way it plays out is Zarya undocks from Neesys and docks to Zvezda with its #2 docking port when Zvezda arrives. Then Neesys docks to Zarya #1 port. However, after P6 comes up many flights later, Zarya and Zvezda are moved to a different docking port on Neesys. This time URMS will be used to help. I planned it all out, still testing the later missions to make sure it all works as expected.

I was able to dock Soyuz to Zarya and Zvezda just fine.

They are another vessel though, yes? Unless it's absolutely required, we should try to avoid adding any more vessels to the scenarios than we really need is my thinking. By the end it gets some what massive at 37 vessels I think it is.

Holy Probe! Yeah, I see your point. Its nothing important. One of my ideas from over using Thorton's ISS

It's actually an APAS-95 port, not CBM, so a PMA would be required between Zarya and Neesys, just like there is between Zarya and Unity in real life.

Interesting, I didn't know that.

I was able to dock both of them together just fine without the PMA though, so is there any harm in not using one? Having it there will add some complications to the flight plans I already drew up, but if we need it then it should be added to Flight #2 payload.


EDIT - Here is what it looks like without the PMA and with Zarya turned around the right way: (this is before P6 comes up, after which Zarya/Zvezda are moved to Neesys port #3.)

So is there going to be an insignia or anything along those lines for OFSS 3?

No need if it's a pain; only if you want to go for hard realism.
