I exit and restart and now this:
Haven't replicated this upon exit and restart, the ALPACA stays landed on the ground
So any issue. Not sure what to fix?
So far encountered these issues:
  • Some RCS thrusters on rotation mode are offset from their supposed locations. The RCS on translation mode is OK, though in both cases, the exhausts were too large compared to the size of their respective nozzles1610753530486.png
  • The EVA guys worked great! Though turning from left to right seemed too slow
  • It seemed that you can only spawn at most two EVA astronauts from the lander because although it won't cause a CTD, the 3rd astronaut or more won't return to the lander. Well, the Dynetics HLS is designed to hold 2-4 astronauts at a time anyway, this won't be a big problem;)

Thanks!

Thanks. Can you post that scn.
I will check the rcs. Check your log to see if missing a texture.
On rcs I have this:SURFHANDLE tex_rcs = oapiRegisterExhaustTexture ("exhaust_cev"); So it is not the default exhaust

I can speed the rotation speed up on the eva guy.

Yes right now just 1 guy. Once 1 get fixed then others will be added. The ladder will be just a key to show/no show now press 6. Tanks k makes them J detaches them. 5 enters the guy.

In some ways a pop up window may be needed. To control eva and HGA? Otherwise. you need this. Press 1 open the door. press a key to select which guy. and press a key to exit. On the return the same. select the eva guy and press a key and he returns.

W selects camera views. right now there are 3 2 front and one aft. Maybe a docking on aimed on top?

In this update it has the fuel tank, ladder and increase rotation on the guy.

I think on the guy it will need to be able to attach.

The RCS texture is now fixed! The offset exhausts were still apparent in the image below (only occurs on rotation mode):Untitled.png

Having fun with the EVA guy lately! The way he moves feels almost like UMMU did in the 2010 version! :hailprobe: Although he still takes a full minute to fully rotate once (NUMPAD+1/3)

Some new issues encountered:
  • Noticed that the ladder appears automatically at the start of the orbit scenario even though it wasn't commanded to do so (Screenshot taken right after simulation restart):1610804010941.png
  • Orbiter crashes when commanding the droptanks to appear by pressing K

  • Lastly, but not really a bug, the ability to launch itself from a Falcon Heavy is lost (though can still on the Vulcan, but has the same ladder issues as well)Untitled.png

Thanks. Update dll for EVA and Alpaca. So now Ladder will show if key is pressed. By default not seen. Added cfg for Tanks

Hey John would it be possible to be able to have a choice to either put in the scenario,or a key press to have 2,or 4 astronauts eva from the lander,or even be seen in the Artemis cockpit?Thanks

yes. So maybe something like evanumber4 tells to show 4 guys. And then select whoever eva and then go away.

Some thing similar to the space shuttle

I think all issues regarding the movement of the EVA guys are resolved now at this point! Works like a charm :hailprobe:

Droptanks now appear when pressing K. I changed the attachment coordinates of the droptanks so that they may fit inside the fairings of Vulcan and SLS (Block 1B):
Untitled.png
Untitled.png

Some new issues encountered:
  • Seems that when jettisoning the droptanks, they do not move away from the lander....just staying there in place
  • I finally no longer see any misplaced RCS exhausts during rotation mode...though I noticed that some exhaust ports on pitch and yaw doesn't show any exhaust plumes

I am afraid we may need to wait on Dan to develop UMMU for 2016 for the Lander to work. I get a ctd when the guy enters. I can not run debug

I got some help:) and it works. I can eva 2 guys and no issue. BUt the Lander wants to move around and if I exit and reload the lander is orbiting.

Not sure if I need to adjust the TD points of all?

Give her a try. Make sure to use the PArking Brake. It should have 1 eva person, If good then I will make the others. On the eva guy 1 raises/lower shield and 7 lights. standard UMMU controls to move.
Alpaca 1 opens door or use CTRL + Space for eva things, 6 ladder appear/disappear. 7 lights
