Post by: Tschachim on June 23, 2006, 12:47:28 PM
Hi Apollo fans,

There are new beta modules available here: http://nassp.sf.net/user/betatesting.html

Thanks to movieman we now have a new LES (Launch Escape System): http://www.ibiblio.org/mscorbit/mscforum/viewtopic.php?t=595

The SCS is a little bit improved, attitude hold mode is working fine now: http://www.ibiblio.org/mscorbit/mscforum/viewtopic.php?p=6635

... and we have a very basic Project Apollo MFD to show mission time during prelaunch and with which you can do the TLI burn especially in case you use the Virtual AGC: http://www.ibiblio.org/mscorbit/mscforum/viewtopic.php?t=629

Cheers

Thanks for the new modules, much appreciated! You might want to check the Apollo 15 Quickstart scn though! Here's some readouts I have so far, some minutes into the mission-

GS 28.5
Alt 18.80
VS +26.5
VACC 0.02

Problem is, I haven't lit the engines yet, she just starts to rise by herself! LOL Funny to watch, even from the Crawler, its just going up like the tanks are full of helium. When viewing the Crawler itself, the textures keep changing from a light color, then to darker shades, off and on by itself.

Got to thinking, if this stack hits 100K feet, might be able to do TLI right from there with the whole Saturn V!! Wink
