Hi developers,

I'm still working on the RCS and in order to get for example the RCS CMD and RCS TRANSFER switches working realistically, I need a basic SECS implementation covering at least CSM/LV separation, CM/SM separation and some earth landing stuff. So I'm going to do a simple SECS for now, which will just cover these events in a simple way, i.e. no abort handling, simplified timing etc., just something that is fine for a normal Apollo 7 mission.

So just in case someone else is or is going to work on the SECS, too, please post here so we can coordinate the work a little bit.

Cheers

Great news Thumbs Up I'm rather glad to hear especially from you after a while Happy

Sorry that I can't do something related to systems implementation (but graphical updates will follow and continue of course). If you still need something graphical or updates for the CSM main panels just don't hesitate to ask for!

Hi Moonwalker,

Great news Thumbs Up I'm rather glad to hear especially from you after a while Happy

Sorry for the silence, I'm still here and industrious...  Wink
The RCS is more work than I expected, but I'm about half-way through and hopefully will have something ready soon.

Yes, there's something you could take a look at actually: As shown on this picture: http://www.space1.com/Artifacts/Apollo_Artifacts/FLOWN_FDAI/Apollo_15_Panel/Ap15_S71-43745_crop.jpg , there are 2 green bars on the left scales of the two SM RCS meters, the first one is from 115-175 F, the second one from 178-207 psi. It would be cool if you can add them to the main panel.  Happy

Cheers

Sounds like a good idea; the SECS has been on the 'really ought to do this one day' list for quite some time Happy.

Tschachim, since I am wrapping up on the Checklist Controller, I'd be willing to take on the SECS.

Just point me in the right direction to get started and I can run with this.

My current Project Apollo work:

Quickstart to the Moon initiative (Quickstart_to_the_Moon): Done through earth orbit.  Working on new method of calculating TLI.

Checklist Controller: 
  • MFD Interface 99%(Minor cleanup and future features remain)
  • Panel Interface 99%
  • Excel interface and logic 99%
  • LEM Event code.0%
  • DSKY Interface code. Framework complete, creating "buttons"
  Approximately 80% done. (Checklist Controller

Well, for me it's more comfortable if you let me finish my basic implementation at first. But after that's - hopefully soon - I'd be happy if you take over and further develop the SECS.

Okay. I'll commit it this week, hopefully together with the new hatch and the 600's panels. But the hatch is not a 100% promise Wink

Changes done. But I couldn't commit it yet. I got the following message each time I tried: "unrecognized response `Access denied' from cvs server". Now, after a few more attempts, it seems to work. The CVS server seems to behave like the Orbiter Forums Very Happy

I'll do a complete checkout at the moment, and commit the changes tonight...

Well, I get a little bit closer commiting the latest files. Meanwhile I was able to edit and replace the left main panel and large main panel. Only the main center panel remains to be edited. But at the moment CVS goes on strike again... Bangs Head

Working with CVS is a real pain at the moment...

Okay, the new RCS gauges are committed, after several attempts. And sorry for spamming this thread... Very Happy

Don't worry, you're doing a great job with the panels.  Thumbs Up

Well, if you're really looking for new work and given your talent as artist you might want to look at 3D models, too?

EDIT: Ahh, it looks like you already had the same idea:

Thanks for the compliments Tschachim. More 2D panel stuff will follow very soon... Wink

Here you go for my 3D plans http://www.ibiblio.org/mscorbit/mscforum/index.php?topic=1581.0
