Now if I could only figure out why my suit temp tends to go full scale high after awhile in the spacecraft

Perhaps you didn't turn on the suit heat exchanger, unfortunately this isn't covered in the wiki yet.

I recently did a CVS update and it removed the Flight Plans for Apollo 7 and 8.  Any idea of what happened.  I used the files before I updated, ran the CVS and said they were removed.  Huh??

Unfortunately I've bad news, for reasons not to discussed here jc121081 decided to leave Project Apollo - NASSP. But he sent me the last versions of his great flight plans, which are still very important especially for the Apollo 7 release, they are back in CVS.

I've put everything back to CVS.

I don't know if he'll be coming back, but you can still mail him via his SourceForge account (jc121081 at users.sourceforge.net), I'm quite sure he'll be happy about a few nice, encouraging words...   Happy

Welp, its been forever, but I'm back!

Don't even know where to begin in terms of getting caught back up to speed with the progress over this past year, but I hope to be able to contribute once again to this fine project now that my personal life seems to have gained some sense of equilibrium. Anyways, its great to be back. I'll get to work on maybe amending the checklists with any additional changes over the year, just gotta shake some rust off first.

Yes, welcome back!

All efforts are appreciated, seems like as soon as I start to look at something life/work steps in to steal my spare time, so I know how things can be!

 Happy Thanks guys! Now, down to business...

Tschachim,

First off I'm glad to see some of the new things which have been implemented. I notice that the RCS system is nicely done; great work on that! I'll probably begin to notice more of the less-obvious changes as I read the posts between now and last January, and amend the flightplan files with some new changes, starting first with Ap7, but I'll discuss that in the other thread.

Irnenginer,

I remember we were making some great progress with the vAGC in Lunar SOI the last time we spoke. Was wondering also what else you were able to determine with that, and again lend what testing I can with it, as I am going to be giving Ap8 vAGC another run soon. Let me know if you're interrested.

Christophe,

Great to hear from you! I'm interrested in how you've come along with EOCA, and would like to lend my support towards it once again if needed. Very excited to work with you again on this!  Thumbs Up

Hi jc,

thanks for your kind words.  Happy
A new feature you might want to take a look at is the ChecklistMFD, I posted more info about that in the Apollo 7 thread.

Are these newest and best "real life" checklists for Apollo 8 vAGC mission?
http://nassp.sourceforge.net/wiki/Prelaunch_checklist_%28Standard%29
http://nassp.sourceforge.net/wiki/Launch_checklist_%28Virtual_AGC%29

Or can you recommend any better?

No, they're rather outdated. I suggest to use Project Apollo Checklist MFD (which uses this file: Doc\Project Apollo - NASSP\Checklists\CSM Default Checklists.xls).

As always, thanks guys for your investment in all this.

Which .scn file are we to use for the A8 vAGC mission?

Under the Project - Apollo -NASSP folder I still see only A7 Quick and A7 vAGC. Or should I use the A8 - Launch further down in Broken Scenarios/Apollo - Historical Missions?
