Just as an aside, what's the current status of the NASSP?  When I left it, the LM wasn't really working yet.  From my reading so far it seems like it's getting close.

The LM is still quite a ways from being complete, it however has had some substantial progress on it in the past couple of years and as of now, it's very possible to land on the moon. Virtual AGC is now mostly integrated and various subsystems such as the Landing Radar and Rendezvous Radar (and many others) have been implemented so not only the landing, but a full PGNCS ascent/rendezvous is now possible. AGS has also seen some work but is still rather new in NASSP, so has some bugs to be ironed out. The next step in LM development will probably be ECS...

I'm starting a new thread for discussion of the LEM environmental control system development. Up until now this is an area that has been lacking in NASSP. I have taken a first step and created some preliminary ECS panel and switch bitmaps for the LEM ECS. Note however that these are just the bitmaps and for now they are not yet integrated in code. Coding is not really my area of expertise so I would like to invite anyone who wishes to do so to take care of that aspect. I can coordinate with whoever does it and update my panel graphics if any adjustments are needed.

Here is a screenshot: (the actual bitmap is much larger and higher quality at 2304 x 1296 pixels)



Please carry on with any LEM ECS discussions  Happy

I have done a few modifications to the LM main panel, previously panel 5 (mission timer and lighting panel) and DEDA (Data Entry & Display Assembly) were on the left and right panels respectively. I have moved both of those sections to the main panel based on LM panel diagrams from the systems handbook and real LM cockpt photos. Panel 5 is supposed to be under the left window and the DEDA under the right window. I have also added the Engine Start and Stop buttons to the left of panel 5 and the Engine Stop button to the left of the DEDA. Here is a full list of the modifications:

-Main panel now much wider at 2700 x 1920 pixels
-Moved Panel 5 & DEDA to the main panel
-Added engine start/stop buttons
-Fixed some typos on various switch/cb labels
-Added ORDEAL to the left panel

Please let me know what you think of the new panels and if you have any comments or suggestions.

Saturn V seems to interact with the ground just fine.

I have that issue in the LM too and I have fixed it in my copy. Will make a PR shortly.

I have not check in Apollo 7 yet, but is anyone else getting a "drogues" verbal sound effect when they are deployed after entry in Apollo 8?  I do not think this is from orbiter sound as I couldn't find the effect.

I do get that, but only after I load a scenario/quicksave just before entry interface. If I fly a scenario all the way from MCC-7 or entry preparations to splashdown, I dont hear that sound effect.
6  Project Apollo - NASSP / Support & Bugs / Re: Apollo 8 Beta Testing Bugs on: February 16, 2017, 11:23:18 AM
So they should be on AC/DC when you load that scn correct?

Yep should be on...the reason I turn them off is in case I bump my controller during time accel.
7  Project Apollo - NASSP / Support & Bugs / Re: Apollo 8 Beta Testing Bugs on: February 16, 2017, 11:11:03 AM
EDIT:  I have fixed the scn files to reflect the RCS LOGIC breakers

Sounds good!    EDIT:   In the Apollo 8 - 12 - Entry Preparations T+142h40min, I forgot to set the ROT CTRL PWR 1 & 2 from OFF back to AC/DC. Do you mind fixing that?
8  Project Apollo - NASSP / Support & Bugs / Re: Apollo 8 Beta Testing Bugs on: February 15, 2017, 11:47:30 PM
Good idea!  Also do you have an entry scn handy I could play with?  I cleared my quicksaves Sad

Here you go

9  Project Apollo - NASSP / Support & Bugs / Re: Apollo 8 Beta Testing Bugs on: February 15, 2017, 08:27:06 PM
You are correct, consider it fixed!  Just need to make sure the timing still flows right.  Give it a whirl since you have an active entry scn?

Just flew with the changes, looks good! Ill be pushing my scenarios in the next few hours. I just added one thing to the Apollo 8 checklists and I posted it here to run it by you. All I did was added a "EI - XXhXXmin" in heading 2 for things that are mission time dependent so that if we do the entry preparation checklists on our own, say after an abort, it will be easier to know when to do the various mission time dependent items since in those cases the mission time is no longer valid.  For example the IMU align at entry minus 1h35:

                                                                                              Heading 2
P52 IMU Realign (REFSMMAT)   522600   MISSION_TIME         EI - 1h35min            -1   1   P52 IMU Realign (REFSMMAT)

I have a few edits to TLI as well, nothing major just smoothing out timing of hidden delays and the like.  I will fold them into your modifications and make my own pull request after

Just flying re-entry right now. The "Final Entry Pad, CSM and LM state vectors, entry target" should be before the EMS Initialization and RSI test & setup (right after Update DET up, to EI). Or else we are using the preliminary PAD to setup the EMS, we want to use the final PAD for that.
11  Project Apollo - NASSP / Support & Bugs / Re: Apollo 8 Beta Testing Bugs on: February 14, 2017, 10:54:34 AM
I was curious about this too since the TLI checklist does not have this part.  I remember adding that "secure ordeal" after TLI originally and I removed it to match the actual checklist because I do not know when they actually did switch it back to inertial or secure for TLC.  I will do a little more research and see if I can get an answer, if not, I will throw in switching it back to inertial for TLC in preparation for the next MCC.

I just made a pull request with a modification to the Apollo 8 checklists. It does not affect your latest changes, I just modified a few things between MCC-4 and TEI.
12  Project Apollo - NASSP / Support & Bugs / Re: Apollo 8 Beta Testing Bugs on: February 12, 2017, 05:29:06 PM
@jalexb88 Did you make some already for launch/TLI?  If so how did the checklists workout after I changed them using the actual ones?

Yes they are committed up to LOI-1. The checklists are fine except very minor things like the double C&W checklist witch you already corrected. The only other thing I can think of is that there is no direction to put FDAI#1 from orb rate back to inertial after TLI is complete.
13  Project Apollo - NASSP / Support & Bugs / Re: Apollo 8 Beta Testing Bugs on: February 11, 2017, 10:00:33 AM
Always something more to investigate Happy  Well with that answered I am going to push my checklist MFD file, let me know if there are any issues.  The timing worked out pretty well for my scn which I have posted here as well.

Awesome! I am out of town until Monday night for work. When I get back I'll be able to finish the last scenarios with the completed checklists. Looks like we are very close to getting this out the door!
14  Project Apollo - NASSP / Support & Bugs / Re: Apollo 8 Beta Testing Bugs on: January 26, 2017, 11:54:15 AM
I found one problem using the actual TLI checklist is it does not turn the cabin fans back on, I will add this back in post insertion in my next checklist update.  In the mean time, turn your cabin fans on so your cabin temp stays up Wink

There is also a double C&WS Operational Check in the insertion checklist. Is that intended? There's a few items I forgot to add at MCC-4 and at LOI-1 which Ill take care of.
15  Project Apollo - NASSP / Project Apollo - NASSP Development / Re: What needs done? on: January 24, 2017, 11:58:33 AM
I cross-check my P23s by using V83 to determine the position and velocity shift from the original SV (LM slot). I get differences less than 2 NM and 2 fps after 12 marks.

Since we've updated the optics operations (namely, matching shaft angles between landmark and sextant view), do you still rotate the spacecraft to center the Earth/star line manually, or just use optics auto pointing?

I myself still maneuver the spacecraft around to center the earth/star first, so that when I am doing the markings, my thruster commands are moving the spacecraft in the normal way. If I don't then I find it makes it much harder because when I'm doing marks through the sextant, but spacecraft is not close to vertically aligned with the earth star, the stick commands do not correspond to the movement you see in the SXT. ie. yawing left equates to pitching up, etc.
