One suggestion that was made to make this add-on more useable and interesting to new users was to include a number of scenarios that take you to various phases of a mission. I'd like to have a discussion of this idea with the developers.

For example, I've got a set of scenarios (about 15) from a "mostly historically accurate" flight of Apollo 11 going from launch to splashdown. If this (or some other set of mid-mission scenarios) were to be included in the package, someone could easily put themselves into lunar orbit, or landed on the moon, or 1 hour from Earth reentry, etc.

The NEP package already does this, in that there are "lunar landing scenarios" for every lunar landing.

I guess the first question is: Does this sound like a good idea, or a bad one?

I think this is a great idea.  New users would really appreciate it for sure.
Even NEP provides very little in terms of scenarios really.  How about giving one example each of:
1. Just having reached LEO
2. TLI
3. Ready to unpack the LM
4. CM and LM in lunar orbit
5. PDI (have in NEP)
6. Landed on Moon (have in NEP)
7. Ready for LM liftoff, with the CM just having passed overhead
8. Earth reentry

I also think that after the TEI should be included.

I've committed 12 "intermediate" scenarios in the subfolder "Scenarios/Apollo 11".

Please feel free to comment.

OK, I include them, but I renamed them (only in the distribution, not in CVS) from 1), 2), 3) to a), b), c) otherwise the order in Orbiter launchpad is 1, 10, 11, 12, 2, 3...
