just added smoke "fuel jettison" when you use RCS or main fuel tank dump.



I plan later to add a "max landing weight" limitation so Landing with full weight will reduce the
tolerance of the landing vertical speed.
Landing with extreme care will still do the job but even a litle rougness can broke your vessel
at max weight. So you'll better empty a bit the fuel before landing.  


Anyway for the next version you'll have the "fuel jettison" smoke already....

(next version planed 040126_rev1 in a couple of hours)

Done already:

Canopy status (open/closed) now saved in scenario

Corrected bug with O2 going to zero at 100 meter high
on earth when canopy open.

Autocontrol mode (elevon/rcs) now switch based on dynamic pressure, mean that if your speed
going to low on earth it will switch back to RCS control. Also at take-off on earth it will switch from
RCS to surface control at 110 m/s  (rotate speed 150/160)
This ensure an automatic switching to witchever is the more efficient at the curent time.

Bug resolved : applying brake worked even when gear collapsed.

Bug resolved : gear out/in worked when landed.

Undocking with airlock open damage the nosecone door.

Docking with nosecone closed or not fully opened damage it.

Various bug cleared and some tweaking

Never mind the Later :)

Just added this feature also... now if you land at full weight (23ton)
your landing gear will collapse at a vertical speed less than -1.77 m/s

The "max landing weight" is 19 ton at this weight you have the "normal"
vertical speed limit of -8m/s... This mean you must dump about 50% of your fuel
before landing if you have full tank.

040126_rev1 still planned in some hours I have still two or three things to add. ;)

Too much snow there, Dan?  I don't want to hear it...we've got about two feet added to the foot
or so that's already been on the ground...temps today: -32C, wind chill -41C.  I think it's warmer
on MARS than here!!! ;)

Dave

p.s. I totally agree with you regarding the re-entry modeling being off on the stock DG.  Modify
away--we all completely trust your abilities in this regard!

Jgrillo

Strange ?  no one reported any font screewing it's a simple
windows MFC application and so there is no special font code... do
you have an picture of your desk with the passenger name problem ?
(sent it by mail if you can't host a picture)

Heres what the problem looks like

Hmmmm...that looks like a problem on your machine, jgrillo, rather than a bug in the code.

psssst, Dan..."line," not "ligne" ;) if you don't tell, I won't.

Well, I'll note that ;)
You missed Passengers or it's me ? :)

You wont believe what 5 cm of snow can do to us...
I think it's the first time we got snow this years (I mean that stay
more than 20 minute on ground)

airprot closed , one hour to make 6 km this morning...
There is always one guy to think that 5cm need to drive at 5mph.
Anyways the temp are now back in a fair +1°c and it's raining ... again ;)

PS: Jgrillo I'll have a look at my code.
