The perfect and realistc apollo return to the moon
How good would it be to use this great sim to produce a definitive Apollo mission to return to the moon - ie Apollo 18?
We already have some if not all of the components needed to do this
What I have in mind is something along these lines
1. start off by actually choosing and naming your astronauts
2. train in a simulator before the mission
3. use of mission control to for example give the astronauts instructions
4. an extensive step by step manual to input data into the computers - as did the real astronauts.( a good start for this is the excellent guide by bob7 - how to get to the moon the easy way)
Even perhaps something the same as the old but still realistic Apollo 18 Sim by Aim software - or at least use some of the better ideas from it?
as per these screen shots?
Orbiters excellent graphics,sounds and addons should make an excellent and realistic mission.
This way perhaps everone should be able to take that historical trip to the moon and not just a few hardend orbiter users.
Just some thought and I hope other will want to take up this idea for a definitive APOLLO 18 return to the Moon project?
I have the original game manual - its written as a NASA Apollo input charts as used by the real astronauts should anyone want any ideas
