With the news that HST is having issues Space X has looked at a repair mission. It would need a rear docking adapter and a door on the SM for the parts to fit on and open up for EVA. It would also take some new suits to do the EVA
we could modify the nose cap to dock with the front and the Dragon would need EVA rails to the back of the SM and to HST along with a folding TV camera to be able to watch this EVA.
Its been mentioned that Jared Isaacman and Drew Feustel from STS 125 would be on the mission

This mission looks really cool and I like the EVA guy but he might need a dark sun shield and a light. this all works but the soft docking device doesn't show up on the HST

That's a good point! A lot of stuff is carried in the trunk (like the ROSA solar sails), but only on cargo resupply missions.
I guess if something is in the trunk of a manned mission, it should not interfere with a possible launch abort.
So it should either be lightweight, or be separated if an abort-command is given.

@barry:
The soft docking device will only show up in the Hubble Reboost missions, not in the standard HST missions.
Reason is, that is defined in the scenario-file as a small vessel, attached to Hubble.

Thanks I was able to see it yes there seems to be a lot of the older HST in that folder looks super. I am not sure but do the Doors on the HST still open ? The Dragon really needs some EVA rails and a small cargo bay to carry the ORU's in. There should be 2 EVA guys and they need to deploy from dragon but over all a super addon. I like the idea of Orion doing these types of missions such as this and Solar Max repair. Gattis did a Skylab MMU that might work well with the new Space X EVA guy

I think it's a bug in the StrelaCrane code. You can attach the astronaut into the foot restraint, when it is attaches to the Airlock.

There used to be a bug where an attached "child" would not be released from the old attachment when grappled by a new "parent". I thought MartinS fixed that years ago.
Anyway, I think you could detach the EVA guy (see EVA controls info) from SAL and grapple him with StrelaCrane.
Have fun!

there looks like 2 EVA stations with the Strela crane. The crane control station seems to work fine but the PFR doesn't

So the PFR is SC3. Try pressing Space and then the command come up to move the PFR. I think pressing A attaches them. Really what is needed is pop up window to control the PFRs,.....

I can easily do them

'a' : Activate / Deactivate parent attachment management. A message will be displayed in the screen bottom left when activated. The name of the selected attachment and the name of the attached vessel (if any) is displayed. When active, cycle through attachment by using left shift Key + NumPad 4 (previous) or NumPad 6 (next). Use left shift Key + NumPad 0 to attach child (if any) / detach child (depending on the current status of the parent attachment) Use left shift Key + NumPad 5 to toggle display of grapple points

I get the Attachment message but pressing Left shift and 0 does nothing.

[PARENT_ATTACH_0] ;Foot restraint
NAME="Astronautk"
POS=(-0.003,0.346,0.023)
DIR=(0,0,-1)

When I press the Lshft +num 0 is when it crashes. If the PFR is attached to the Airlock(SAL), it works fine.

In the scn he has the tool pfr1 attached to the crane.

SAL/Tool_PFR_1:spacecraft\spacecraft3 STATUS Orbiting Earth RPOS 5338596.741 -3981980.921 1230722.308 RVEL -157.9406 2071.5297 7385.3847 AROT -128.170 52.308 7.779 ATTACHED 0:0,StrelaCrane

But I may need to remake the pop out windows. Because I can't close them with the x button on top. I need to figure that out. On some I added a close button
