I'm on the surface of the moon at the Fra Maura base. I have downloaded the meshland pack too. Firstly, the LEM appears to be floating just above the surface. Secondly, after completing the EVA checklist and switching the EVA switch, Al Shepard and/or the LEM floats to about 20ft in the air and then back down again. After this, I cannot move the astronaut at all. I tried re-loading the scenario again several times and I have tried pressing 'E' to end the EVA and then redoing it but the same thing happens. He won't move. What can I do?

Only the NASSP 7.0 Beta has Meshland support, perhaps you should give it a try...  Happy

Okay great.

Erm, where do I obtain the 7.0 beta? Also, after download, can I just copy and paste the files into the respected folders?

Thanks

Okay, thanks for the links.

I have seen a previous post which discusses the uses of the 7.0 beta. Is it correct that I cannot fly an entire mission from lift off to splash down like you can in 6.4? If so, what is the best way of completing the mission?

Thanks

I think you already can make an attempt for an earth orbit mission like Apollo 7, even with the virtual AGC.

I believe the limitations right now are:

1. The Virtual AGC doesn't know where the Moon is so can't be used for lunar flights.
2. The Virtual AGC can't fly the LEM.
3. The LEM can't be fully operated with the control panel.

So currently, you can't actually land on the moon using the 7.0 Beta?

You used to be able to if you had a scenario with the LEM systems set up correctly, but I'm not sure whether that's still the case.

You can't use the LM in Virtual AGC Mode as Movieman already explained, but you probably don't want to anyway but use LazyD's great landing autopilot. Happy

I just checked the LM in Standard and Quickstart Mode, the only problem is you can't arm the descent engine. I committed a fix to CVS, so with the next beta modules (comming soon) it's really worth a try!

Just one further question.

I've had a look at the 7.0 beta documentation on the wiki main page. It says I need to download and install 'tortoise' or something. I've had a look at it but the computer that I use for orbiter and nassp doesn't have access to the interent. how am I meant to up-date??

Thanks

You need internet access in order to use TortoiseCVS. I assume you have another computer which has internet access, so you could install TortoiseCVS on the other computer, do the initial checkout (or an update) and then copy the complete directory.

Another, probably better idea for now is to try She'Da'Lier's Project Apollo - NASSP Beta mirror, it provides the latest beta in one file: http://www.shedalier.net/?content=nassp

Tschachim, with reference to the second link you posted on the above comment, do I still need to install the tortoise thing?
Sorry I'm a little confused as to what I am meant to be doing.

No, She'Da'Lier provides everything in one zip file, just unzip it to your Orbiter installation, that's all.
... at least I think so, I didn't try...  Wink
... and it's still the March 7 Beta, I don't know when he'll update it...
