The RCS temp stuff looks great too...looks like your modelling temp based on attitude? Certain quads go cold faster that others!

Yes, it's using the radiative heat simulation provided by the PanelSDK.

 Good Job! High Five!

Wow.... so what you're saying is "BBQ roll anyone?"

My Project Apollo Work:
CM Visual
 -VC (~75% complete: texture work beginning again; mesh-78%; texture-70%)
Propulsion Particle Improvements (Focused on S1B right now, BETA 1.0 has been commited)
New Docking Method (~50% complete: research complete; coding partially completed, testing not underway)

Future Work:  (if it's here, it's deemed unnecessary to upcoming release)

Older Work:  (if it's here, it's fair game to whoever wants to improve)
EMS Implementation (committed: minor flaws, but groundwork is there, needs extensive testing)
EMS scrolls (committed: not refined, but usable)
SM Visual (committed: mesh-finished, texture-60%; possibly revisited in future)
J2 Texture (commited: room for improvement)
LRV (committed: mesh-finished, texture-90%; in future a ground up rebuild may be in order, but not on my plans)

Exactly!  Happy

But normally the RCS heaters are turned on, so the thrusters can't get too cold. However, a thruster quad can get too hot when it's directly exposed to the sun for about 10 hours or so during Trans Lunar or Earth Coast. That triggers a Master Alarm, but there are no other effects on the RCS, just the alarm.

Whats the effect of the packages getting too cold? Propellants freezing in the pipework?

Current Work: ?? What next??

Future Work:
I know the AGC pretty well so anything need doing there?

On Hold/Completed:
SPS TVC in P40 issues.
P11 FDAI Error Needles (98%) complete. Comitted. Working A7 scenario.
P06 AGC Standby. Concluded. It's done by the AGC PSU.
Got us a complete AOH Volume II

Yes, at about 10F (which again takes several hours) the oxidizer would freeze, so in NASSP the thrusters don't work below this temperature.
