One small thing about posting too...
I would like to know how to post images, such as the Apollo userbar.

Use the IMG code as explained here: http://www.ibiblio.org/mscorbit/mscforum/index.php?action=help;page=post#bbcref
This works in the signature, too.

Hey guys,

I haven't been on in a while.  I'm kinda getting lost in the forum posts here.  Is the A07/08 CSM finished?  If not what is left?  How's the LM coming along?  Thanks for your continued work on this awesome project.

I can't tell you much about the programming status. But as for the panel graphics stuff: the CM is finished. The LM is in work and finished soon.

Maybe this is a daft question but if the CSM is finished as you say why does the system test on panel 101 and the mission timer in the LEB not work still?

Don't get me wrong I am still so happy at all the work that has been done so far and I am really glad to be able to fly the Apollo capsule. I also can't programme a single line of code...yet.But I just wonder if we shouldn't say the CSM is finished if there are still panels not working?

He said "Graphics," as in the images for every panel are present and accounted for; as far as functionality, there's still a ways to go...

That's true. I can only speak of the graphics stuff. I'm not familiar with the latest code. But I guess, from what I know, that the CM is rather advanced. There are only minor things missing I believe. The LM still needs lots of coding though...

PS: my progress on the LM panels got a little slow due to Easter inbetween, and a costal contusion (don't ask ROTFL).

Ahh. Sorry, Should have realised you meant graphics wise. The work that has been done till now is phenomenal. I take it you mean the graphics in the 2d panels only though. I sincerely hope the ideal will be the 3d cockpit eventually.

 I know it will probably be years till we manage to implement the 3d cockpit with all working switches and if I had the knowledge I would work on that myself. Till then I will continue to enjyo the 2d panels and dream.... Very Happy

I know this has probably been mentioned in the past, but is there a reason the BMAG TEMP lights are still missing from the CW panel?

Hi, guys!

Do you know how many functioning switches that does anything in the CSM? I know there are not very many functioning switches in the LM. Thanks!

              Cheers,

Are you asking which CSM switches work and which do not?

Hi, rcflyinghokie!

Sorry, I didn't respond to you sooner. please forgive me. thanks! Yes, that is what I'm asking about. I would like to know how many switches in the NASSP CSM that work & how many which do not? Thanks!

             Cheers,

I didn't count all the working switches, but most switches do have a function.

Hi, Moonwalker!

 It sounds like a lot of the CSM switches are functional! Thanks!

            Cheers,

I havent looked in a while but I can compile a list of what doesnt work or what doesnt have a function yet if you like in the CSM.

I have done some work on the CSM High Gain Antenna. It is mostly the part of the HGA where I can be most helpful, the vector math to calculate the relative angle between the pointing vector of the HGA and Earth. It really is the most basic implementation right now:

-Power and circuit breakers are hopefully correctly connected. I have traced down where the power comes from and I found out that the flight bus wasn't connected to its circuit breakers before. That should now be the case, if I haven't missunderstood that part of the code completely.
-The antenna only works with the power switch on and in manual mode. I have arbitrarily chosen 5/s as the rate limit for the pitch and yaw servos.
-The beamwidth switch doesn't do anything yet. However, I have used the beamwidth of the wide mode (40) as the current setting, just for testing. A basic cosine function is used to approximate the signal strength. Again, not really based on much, I don't know much about electrical engineering.
-There is no animation of the antenna right now. I am sure other people can do that part better than me.

With all these disclaimers, you can use V64 now to get the correct HGA pitch and yaw angles from the AGC and then get signal strength with those settings. It's a first step.
