Can we have the wind blow and the rate needles move?

One glaring error in From the Earth to the Moon is the Apollo 8 first stage cutoff/second stage ignition sequence.   The ring is not supposed to be jettisoned until after the second stage ignitres.   

I wish they had covered the flight of Apollo 6 more closely, and dealt with the problems with the Saturn V on that mission.  (In a strange coincidence, it was launched the same day as the assasination of Martin Luther King, Jr.   Now the Apollo 6 spacecraft is located at the Fernbank Science Center in Atlanta, not far from the King Memorial.)

I tried the beta Apollo 7 scenario, and Orbiter crashed when I separated from the S-IVB. 
4  Project Apollo - NASSP / Support & Bugs / IMFD 4.6 tutorial for versions 6.4.3 and the beta? on: October 15, 2006, 02:04:49 PM
Is there a TLI and TEI tutorial for using the IMFD 4.6?

Any chance the joystick could be used as the abort handle like the THC was used?

AS-203 should be easy to do as well: it's just a Saturn 1b with a conical fairing in place of the SLA:

Of course all it does is fly into orbit and explode after a while, so not a terribly exciting flight Happy.


Of course, you could just relabel the Apollo 5 scenario as AS-203. 

 Excited!

Another Birmingham resident on the Orbiter forum.  Actually, I'm just north of Center Point.

Is there going to be a way for us to "tour" the launch pads that you guys create for Orbiter?

This is a diagram of LC-37 if anyone needs it.

Thanks for your help. 
11  Project Apollo - NASSP / Support & Bugs / The inverter check on: October 03, 2006, 09:08:06 AM
Can someone explain the inverter check, because that always throws me for a loop.  I can't find the INV 2 AC2 switch.  Where is it?   I keep getting the master alarm to go off.
12  Project Apollo - NASSP / Programming / Re: Orbiter 2006-P1 changes/problems on: October 02, 2006, 04:42:56 PM
Well, I tried the 6.4.3 version and it worked out just as advertised. 

13  Project Apollo - NASSP / Programming / Re: Orbiter 2006-P1 changes/problems on: October 02, 2006, 03:43:45 PM
Is the CSM/LV separation bug affecting version 6.4.3 as well?   I have two installations of Orbiter.  One is NASSP 6.4.3 and the other is the Project Apollo beta.  I updated both installations with the patch. 
14  Project Apollo - NASSP / Programming / Re: Orbiter 2006-P1 changes/problems on: October 02, 2006, 10:48:09 AM
So should we do a CVS update before installing the patch?
15  Project Apollo - NASSP / Support & Bugs / Re: Apollo 7 scenario no longer works with latest beta on: October 01, 2006, 09:21:52 AM
It's working again.
