Yes, we transfer these settings to IMFD and get the burn data back, which are used by the S-IVB to execute the burn.

So this will work with the other scenarios other than Apollo 11?

Amazing feature! Very Happy  I should copy this thread to the folks working on the current-day Ares/Direct/CEV add-ons to see if they could incorporate some of these ingenious features.

Fantastic job, gentlemen!

Cheers,

Yes, it should (I didn't test it), but as mentioned in this thread you need to configure IMFD manually if you're not using the Apollo 11 Quickstart scenario.

Go ahead!  Happy

Ok, at the risk of sounding like an idiot, do you mean that I'd have to set up IMFD to

a) Use GET rather than MJD time calculations, and
b) Set up the Lambert solver to use Apollo P30?

 Very Happy No idiocy here, you need to know IMFD fairly well to be able to ask questions like this...

The answer is No and No, both the GET and the ApolloP30 mode are set anyway. But all the settings defining the TLI burn are missing (TLIMJD, LOIMJD etc., see all settings here denoted with a [1]: http://nassp.sf.net/wiki/Scenario_File_Options#Mission_parameter_options), so you need to set up the actual TLI burn (times, offsets) manually.
