A purely technical question, why do you want to build in high-temperature radiators? They're heavier than the low-temperature versions, and I don't see anything in the rest of design that requires coolant that runs hot enough to justify the extra mass...

I guess it's just out of habit from building overpowered spacecraft.
Thanks anyway, necessary corrections have been made.

Can we officially call this OFSS IV ?

The Tranzit is brought up on mission 5, and de-orbited on mission 8. In between are two "orbital tugging" operations, which "are the most challenging of the lot."

Why are the orbital tugging operations considered "the most challenging"? Is it because the Tranzit and Smerch supposed to be attached together to the station and push the entire thing*? To where?

Or does "orbital tugging" mean that the Tranzit moves modules around? If that is the case (which it probably is), then the Smerch (~4 km of delta-v with Tranzit attached) is overkill.

*Just to let you know, Tranzit cannot be docked to the station when it is still attached to Smerch.

The Tranzit is docked to the station after being brought up by the Smerch tug, which is then jettisoned (preferably deorbited). In the following missions 6 and 8, a Smerch tug carries the modules to within 50km of the station, after which the Tranzit takes over and docks the modules to the station. Most of the other missions include just a single rendezvous, while ferrying modules to and fro requires multiple rendezvous.

I kept the Smerch so that even beginners could have a greater margin of error, while attempting rendezvous. Since you are flying the mission, you can choose the DM tug to put the Tranzit up there.

Having a problem with mission 1. Change vessel to "Little" pad to open the "arms". When I switch back to the Themis with internal view I get a CTD.

This happens with both inline graphics and d3d9

sorry to jump in in the middle... I don't know exactly the full structure of the station, but I think that two addons that I made could be very useful to the extent of this topic.

Jarvis dll has an autopilot that can help a lot for getting the correct inclination and should be easy to use as well, together with the launch control center which can simulate (if desired) problems or loss of cargos.

http://www.orbithangar.com/searchid.php?ID=6439


And the TG-Habitat can be used together with its realtime option to keep the station flying in "realtime"

http://www.orbithangar.com/searchid.php?ID=6522


of course this is only meant to help and to suggest something that could be nice

have fun

Still troubleshooting.

If I open the example mission (Mission 2 complete) and select away from OFSS, and switch back (via F3) I get a CTD also. I'm thinking I've got an issue with IMS maybe? I'll go over the requirements list again to make sure I've got everything.

2nd try (clean install, requirements listed installed in order) has the same results. To clarify the above. I get the CTD when switching back to the OFSS when in cockpit view. I can cycle trough all the other objects listed on the F3 menu, but when I switch back; CTD

I must be missing something obvious

Does it also occur in scenario with only Themis and CSSC vessels (pads , train and crane)?? If yes please post it in add-on thread.

No, the Themis works fine. It's just something inside this Orbiter install of mine set aside for this set of missions. And even then, only these two scenarios dealing w/ OFSS-IV.

The supplied Themis (Hyperion too) missions work fine. As do the others (Negishima, XR-2, XR-5, WideAwake, etc)

So I gotta figure it is related to IMS somehow. The Orbiter log is clean, so I'm kind of stumped.

Did you download the new IMS RC9 ?

A couple of things to check, Phantom: did you run all the ZIP-EXE installs (versus just unpacking them into your OFSS directory), and did you re-download the latest OFSS.ZIP from the OP.

Both of those caught me out on my installs, enough that I thought I better write that installer walkthrough!

Best wishes!

I already have a working, fully automatic one-click installer.

I will post it in the (European) evening today.

@ADSWNJ

I think that's what my problem was. I was just unpacking them in the root directory, tried it again (unzipping and installing from the root directory) and it works A-OK.

Jarvis was actually thought of, but somehow got dropped along the way..

Anyway, as soon as we complete the current mission roster, including the Jarvis is essential. And Antares 3.0 is also on my wishlist, and can add a very realistic touch to the whole mission.
