    EVA Question

    The clickspot on the 2D panel is the latching handle for the hatch, just click that and then roughly the middle of the hatch. If clicking the handle plays a sound but doesn't seem to do anything, just continue to vent for a couple of minutes more. The LM pressure gauge may look like it's at...

    Question How to rendezvous radar?

    Shortly after undocking and after the visual inspection, LM +X should be facing the CSM and be 'upside down'. Manually slew the RR to PY 0,0 and you should get a good signal strength. At this point, you can switch to AUTO TRACK and it should lock.

    Question MCC1 - Scrubbed

    Cislunar navigation is optional as you can always get an accurate state vector. Hit FAIL instead of PRO to skip them.

    Apollo 16 LOPC-2 and Shape Questions

    LOPC-2 is to set up the CSM to be in-plane with the landing site for ascent and rendezvous, but I'm not familiar with the new MFD interface to help you plan it.

    [NASSP 8][Apollo 8] Realtime simulation preparation

    CMC Hold should work too right?

    Apollo 15 Post Orbital Insertion Procedures Question

    I agree with you that using the checklist and switching back and forth can get rather confusing. There's a possibility that you'll go out of sync between the two checklists and get something wrong. But it's actually not too bad if you understand what is going on during the clock sync procedure...

    Open Hatch

    is your dP at zero or near zero? The tunnel hatches and LM hatches won't open unless dP is sufficiently low. EVA button works and will spawn an astronaut at the LM ladder if the LM forward hatch is open. Unfortunately, all you can do at the moment is to move the astronaut around the surface.

    NASSP WIP Scenarios: Where to go after Apollo 11?

    It's definitely possible to do any of the Apollo missions from 7-17. Apollo 12 onwards has no documentation provided, but you can definitely find things like flight plans and checklists online. A good place to start finding mission documentation is the Apollo Flight Journal or the Apollo Lunar...

    Question Issues with sepration from SIV-B

    Is your TRANS CONTR PWR switch on? Turning the THC clockwise will translate the CSM forward, this is normal behaviour.

    latest NASSP revision 1736 ... where to start?

    IMO, you can skip Apollo 7 and go directly to the Moon with Apollo 8 first. Most of the stuff on Apollo 7 isn't essential for a successful trip to the Moon and back, and the timeline on Apollo 8 is more relaxed.

    Question NASSP 7 checklists in NASSP 8

    The obsolete checklists should work for the CSM-only missions on NASSP 8, but they don't take advantage of the new mission planning tools like RTCC MFD or MCC. That being said, using IMFD shouldn't cause a problem. The differences are mostly how maneuvers are executed. For example, the old...

    Apollo 9 Problems

    I'm guessing it wouldn't be on the checklist if they trained only with the earth orbit AGS

    Apollo 12 Checklists

    It's definitely possible! I'm currently flying Apollo 12 myself. I use the Apollo 12 flight plan, but the Apollo 11 checklists.

    Manual Entry

    Are both EMS roll and .05g switches on panel 1 switched on? I assume you already have your EMS set to ENTRY & normal. EDIT: The RSI works fine for me on your scenario. The entry was done at 340 yaw though, was the entry REFSMMAT correct?

    CSI? CDH? TPI? Help please?

    Don't worry! I'm sure everyone had trouble flying the LM after getting used to the CSM. That's an excellent video that tells you what each maneuver (CSI, CDH, TPI) aims to accomplish during the rendezvous sequence. The whole rendezvous sequence depends on where and when the intercept will take...

    EMS Scroll

    To add to that, you'll need to have your EMS mode in either EMS test 1 or Vo set to scroll the EMS with the dV/EMS set toggle switch

    Manual Entry

    If entering the atmosphere directly from a lunar trajectory, think of your entry as having 2 phases. The first phase is to get the spacecraft down to below orbital velocity. Use the red and green lines below to safely navigate this phase. The second phase is like a normal entry from LEO once...

    Question [NASSP 8] [Apollo 8] How do I do P23 Cislunar Navigation?

    After having more experience with the sim, I realized that the explanation I gave a few years back is not 100% accurate. You should not place the star with any part of the Earth/Moon's horizon. Instead, the highest point or lowest point of the body when looking at it through the sextant is the...

    Calculating LM gimbal angles

    Yes, enter the numbers under LM O/I/M exactly For example: LM O/I/M: 300.42 194.16 359.71 Enter on the LGC: R1 +30042 R2 +19416 R3 +35971

    Apollo 11: Missed State Vector and P23?

    Did you switch UPL TLM CMC to ACCEPT? If it doesn't work still, you can also uplink the SV manually by using RTCC MFD or PAMFD and continuing from there. But your MCC might already be out of sequence at that point and may not work properly after that. Of course, the best thing to do is to...
