It's a Q, "STAR ACQ".  It's for the star tracker that was never developed far enough (or at all?) to be flown on a mission.

Also, I posted my reply to your last post in this thread: http://www.ibiblio.org/mscorbit/mscforum/index.php?topic=2907.msg25040#msg25040 because all this has nothing to do with the Virtual AGC. You must have missed my post in that thread.

@indy91 and @kneecaps -- if it's just the two of you, and you're both thinking about throwing in $50, how about splitting the Zerlina simulation 50/50? The total cost for that one is $101.75. That would simplify things (less hands exchanging money). And I promise it won't put scanning of Zerlina itself at risk; if nobody pledges the full amount by the time we need it I'll be covering it.

Yeah, I think we can do that. At least we have a complete document (certainly valuable for NASSP) paid for then.

Swell.  Happy That's just a suggestion, of course -- if you guys would rather put the money towards Zerlina we can work that out too. If you do agree to go for the simulation, hit Ron up and he'll send along the paperwork. I think one of you will need to be the primary sponsor.

I can also contribute if you want to split it in 3!

Preferably someone in the US then I guess, in my case there would be two currency conversions otherwise. If I look at our profiles then jalexb88 is Canadian, kneecaps is from New Zealand and I am German... well great  ROTFL

Hahaha, well maybe we should just work out something for Zerlina then. I'm in the US. How much would you be willing to chip in, jalexb88? I have a friend who pledged $50 to me offline to help cover it, so we're currently at:

indy91 - $50
kneecaps - $50
jalexb88 - ??
my friend - $50
me - remainder (~200-250?)

Which isn't too bad.  Very Happy

I'd be happy to pledge $50

You fixed the lunar landing for us, @thewonderidiot, I'll throw money at you any day.  ROTFL

I will also pledge to make Zerlina work in NASSP. That should be worth the equivalent of a few more dollars. I don't charge by the hour, I promise.

Super, thanks guys!  Very Happy @indy91, when Zerlina works in NASSP we need to record a video of it and send it to Don, as a thank-you for working with us. I'm sure he'd love to see it in action again.  Thumbs Up

It's likely that the next four things to be scanned will be the other four simulations, so it's going to be a bit before Zerlina is up. Then, I think, Shepatin and Zerlina will be scanned together. I'll avoid doing the paperwork until it's closer to scanning time in case anybody else decides to chip in!

Thanks for the info. Souldn't be a problem. I'll get started on it after work today (my day just getting started)
EDIT: so the switch postions are ok? Just the fonts need to be added?

Looks like only the labels have to be changed, yeah. The Optics zero switch might be looking slightly different than the other switches, but I don't think we currently support that kind of switch. So I guess the best option is to simply use the one currently implemented.
ok good deal. So how about the 3d models? Any texturing or model work needing to be done that you are aware of?

I know we need to animate the high gain antenna, at least. And then there's the virtual cockpits, of course...

@indy91, @kneecaps, and @jalexb88 --

We've just found a sponsor that is willing to cover the total cost of Zerlina. I wanted to run it by you guys, though, to see what you thought, since there was discussion of putting your money towards that. If you're still really keen on that, we can see if this person would be open to sort of filling in for me to cover the remainder. Otherwise, we could fall back on the sim idea. Outside of the Zerlina sim, the only two listings that don't have sponsors are the Luminary 131 and Luminary 99 rescans, so all of the new things will be covered.  Happy

Let me know what you guys think.

I think in that case we would go back to the idea of sponsoring the Zerlina digital simulation.

Okay, super! Ron's marked the sim as sponsored by the "NASSP Group" on the website (we can change that to your real names if you want). In this case, it's probably easier (for me at least) if one of you be the primary sponsor and handles the money. archive.org at least doesn't have any problems with billing people who live outside of the US. So whoever the primary sponsor is going to be, shoot an email to Ron (info@sandroid.org) and he'll get with you on the paperwork.  Very Happy
