I think your right about the star tracker and I wonder if those boxes are the phased arrays cant tell if that is the SM CM connection but it could be

Just took a closer look and your also right that has to be the SM CM connection port. It's off set from the RCS pods

Hi,
as @carlosriera has noted, using my guidance file for the Artemis 1 launch, targeting 34deg.inc. (originally made for 06:04 UTC liftoff), doesn't give the right LAN for the actual liftoff time of 06:47:44 UTC.
Inclination should be 30.5deg.

Also, the ICPS does not have enough dV for the TLI burn. This can be solved by raising the pre-TLI parking orbit to ~2100km.
(Although it may be that the ICPS is underpowered or overweight?).

The following guidance file solves these issues....

Code:
-10.000 =orbit(150,2200,30.5,1.00,72,0.00)
-5.000 =engine(0.00,100.00,5.00,0.00,0.00,0.00)
0.000 =engine(100.00,100.00,1.00)
30 =pitch(71.63, 64.40, 10.0)
40 =engine(100.00,85.00,3.00)
40 =pitch(64.40, 57.62, 10.0)
43 =engine(85.00,85.00,1)
50 =pitch(57.62, 51.34, 10.0)
60 =pitch(51.34, 45.69, 10.0)
70 =pitch(45.69, 40.70, 10.0)
80 =engine(85.00,95.00,3.00)
80 =pitch(40.70, 36.19, 10.0)
83 =engine(95.00,95.00,1.00)
90 =pitch(35,5,170)
260 =pitch(5,10,50)
310 =pitch(10,20,165)
420 =engine(95.00,60.00,4.00)
424 =engine(60.00,60.00,1.00)
475 =pitch(20,18,30)
495 =engine(0,0,1.00)

Cheers,
Brian

OK Bianj!!, it seems that the dates already coincide, although I still have CDT, I think due to the PC.

PS. Is the Launch scenario automatic or do you have to press "P"?

Press P at T-10

looks like the docking ring is extended as well in pic 1. Cant wait to see it on the SLS and a Delta 4

#### gattispilot

Working on the thrusters. Ever so often I get a CTD on restart.

Redid the SM. It had spring supports for when it separated from the SLS.

I may need to add a docking light. I guess center near the docking ring?

Been asked about lighting off/on. I think the way to do what is my changing the emissive values. Off =0 on =.2?

Still not sure about the Wing Camera. I just made an attachment point on the wing for the camera position

More images. Not sure if I can add the blueish texture to the hull. redid the connector. Noticed around the RCS thrusters on the SM it was brass/brown color

I tried this. I need to redo the cover as there are issues. Like around the opening is actually closed rather than open.

I can try the same the Orion hull. But with a more blueish tint? Like the cover the Orion hull is just 1 texture with cut out or addon for the flag,....

I noticed something odd. On the solar panels there is a black side and a blue side. But in this image it seems the black side has wires in it.

Higher res
Only one side has PV cells, this side is just power connections and routing. I'd guess stitching together all the cells in series and paralel, plus maybe sensors if there are any.

#### gattispilot

Thanks. Wow the first panel is thicker than the other 2. But is that the blue side?

I might be able to take that image and make into a texture

Thank you to all who have worked on and are working on this! Been a long time to wait for Orion to fly, can't wait to do it in Orbiter!

Yes gattis is real close to a release and I have seen it and it is super . The detail is awesome and will be a great addon to be able to follow these flight in the coming years

Working on a panel to allow you to rotate each panel. I suppose the camera can also rotate.
This is what I have for the front and back.

Then press a key and the panels go back to default to allow for stowing.

On the rotating fornt and back. II have it so the user can adjust the angle. Or do we want just press the button and then rotate to the max angle. What ever that is?

Tried a sample blue texture. It seems stretched out.

I believe you can get a good view of solar panels on official NASA's Artemis page

#### gattispilot

Nice. I was able to use the image to make the back side of the panels. Redid the motors that rotate them
