Hey Markus, the new textures on the SIVB look great!  Thumbs Up

Just one thing I noticed while playing around with the new beta modules: The SLA panels don't seem to extend uniformly. After I separated the CSM from the SIVB, one panel seems to extend out by a smaller angle, the other three look correct. See attached screenshot.

My Project Apollo work in progress:
* New detailed Lunar Module Ascent stage with virtual cockpit (VC currently planned as eye candy only) 18 % done

My Project Apollo work to be continued:
* new Service Module SPS engine bell
* various Saturn V textures, exhaust textures
* SIM Bay for the SM


My long-term plans are to create a:
* New detailed Lunar Module descent stage (eventually models of all flown LM's)
* New F-1 engines for the S-1C stage showing the foil (batting) insulation
* New LUT and launch pad (if nobody else does it)

That's exactly what happened with the real Apollo 7.
The prospect of trying to dock with one panel partially in the way made Wally Schirra so nervous that the SLA panels were modified to completely jettison on later missions.

Thanks for your kind words!

Yeah, the SLA panel is intentional, it fully deploys a couple of hours after separation as it was found by the Apollo 7 crew during the rendezvous later in the mission.
