Does this mod not have any radio transmitters? I scan through the whole range and can't seem to pick anything up, on either the station itself or its docking frequencies...and I'm in one of its docking points so the range isn't an issue.

v2.7 released.
Here are the new nav frequencies: (They can be changed in scenario editor)

Transponder = 126.0
PMA-2 = 126.1
PMA-3 = 126.2
Zvezda = 126.3
MRM = 126.4
Nadir Pirs = 126.5
Zenith Pirs = 126.6
The CBMs have no nav frequency... They aren't really docking ports, after all ;)

Very nicely done add-on! Does this ISS have any exterior lights that can be activated so we can see the station like during nighttime EVA's? And is there an EVA astronaut with headlights available?

Glad you are enjoying the add on.

About exterior lights:
Not yet, I haven’t been able to find a definitive answer as to where they are located. With good data, I can add them easily.

As far as lights for EVA astronauts, that would be a question for gattispilot.

When focused on the eva guy you press CTRL and space it opens a window where you control the guy

Thanks for checking in Max! I have found EVA astronauts through the SpaceTransportationSystem2016 (Shuttle fleet 4.8)! :)

There was the Space operation center as well which would be good to see fly and anyone have a picture of the free flyer that went along with Freedom ?

Thanks for the pic of the free flyer. NASA looked at flying something like that where they could change out the pallets somewhat like the HST reserving missions. After the Challenger it was the only piece of Freedom left in the budget and was too be called the " Sally Ride" EOS

After Soyuz MS-21 arrived on the ISS just four days ago, I decided to use the stock Module2 vessel as a stand-in for Prichal, and it fits quite perfectly!

Here is a feature several folks have been asking about for a while now: New with v2.8!

In going through some PDFs about the ISS plus google, I was able to figure out roughly where the external lights are on ISS.
The lights can be turned on/off with Cntrl L.
There is also an automatic mode where they turn on in orbital night, and off in day.

I absolute love the ISS HD! Using it as my standard docking target.

Question: Is it possible to set the CMG mode in the scenario file?
It would be helpful to set it there to free drift or attitude keeping.

Reason is, I don't want to change the default behavior in the cfg-file, just deactivate the attitude keeping for the docking scenarios.

Yes. The ”CMG” line in the scenario will do the trick. Set it to 0, 1, or 2 to change the mode independent of the cfg. You can also set the CMG mode in-sim using the 1, 2 and 3 keys.

FYI, the settings in the CFG have little importance, they are really only used when a new ISS vessel is created using scenario editor.
