I think the front of the cargo bay texture is backwards. See the yellow thing. On the real one is on the right side of the airlock hatch. While my shuttle it is on the left.
I believe it is a PFR hangar.

Not sure if making the orbits correctly.
Here I have the time for IUS deploy as 6:13 from launch. I set the MJD. load TLE scn editor and load and apply the sts 29 TLE data
Apogee, Perigee post-OMS 2: 160 x 160 296.32KM
On orientation. I set it to this:

to match this:

The SHARE rotates outs as does the SPIFEX for sts 69

Not sure why this is the case:

Like most addons you need some other add on. The shuttle can be free of that. BUT the cargo and launches will need other add'ons.

I can add a generic launch. No extra cargo,......

I am working on a new Zip it will have fictional launches and shuttle at ISS scenarios.

Things I don't know about is the vectored OMS.

But I think about the scenarios from the original sts2016 may need to be a separate add on else how would get them?

Redid the cargo for sts 2 and 3. I noticed that they had those yellow/black guides on them

STS-2 DEFI has the guides for the IECM on top

STS3 the pallet had the guides for the PDP, which is attached to the RMS

Confused

In SF if you add the line OMS
STS guidance
"
NOTE This beta version of STS Guidance MFD REQUIRES ENDEAVOUR V2.0
(or other V2.0 shuttles) and will only operate correctly if the line
'OMS' is in the Shuttle section of the scenario file you are flying."

The OMS direction of thrust is:
VECTOR3 THRUSTDIR_OMSL = { 0.10, -0.23, 0.97 }

So as I understand it when OMS is there now the Thrust direct is -.10,0,.99 or is it 0,0,1 so OMS fire along the Z axis?

Does it matter?

We got the STS guidance to work. BUt not sure how it use it.

I keep going back and forth on the GAS (Get Away Special) cylinders. All I have seen is for a size is 5 and 2.5 Cu FT.

This is STS 7. Also I was wrong about the tops. They maybe reflective. But the blue ones are solar panels NOT the earth reflection as I thought earlier.

I finally found the sizes of the GAS containers:

I am redoing them.
Different op[s though. Some are the white/silver, blue solar, and just metallic (brass/gold/grey?)

Working on the OMS vector thing also.

One thing people asked about was the speed brake and making it adjust to the speed. I tried that and it was bad.

I added OMS to the sts 1 launch.
8Z7Ozzp.jpg

At about 10 minutes from launch OMS1 burn to an orbit of 130/57 nm or 240.76/105.564
Weird so I set the orbit for that and it would not take it.
ExBTT1u.jpg

but it take 1055 2407
But the burn took place at 55 minutes

vector for thrust should be at the center of gravity.

Not sure I may just stick to meshes

On the logo of the SPA01. The German flag seems to be offset and something else is there. But I can't tell what it is?
