One suggestion if this does not involve massive reprogramming:
- woul it be possible to allow fuel TRANFER when docked to another ship?



You can download Fuel MFD from Trevor John's website and achieve that result rather than Dan having to reprogram anything.

I have flown eleven full missions, ascent, docking, all APs, MMU, Cargo, hover and I am yet to find bugs however I make one
comment:  it is very hard to glide to a landing now, far harder than in the previous releases I think, the v drops off very
fast at under 180ms (I like to try to glide after reentry like the Shuttle!!!!)

A little more lift?

Just a thought

Thanks Dan.  Will have years of fun with this baby!!!!

More of an oversight than a bug; The DGIV Config program says that all settings apart from smoke/debris are
individualy set,
but engine thrust is common as well.

Changed, now DGIV retain O2 Fuel and Engine power setting, change made in dg4config.exe program must now be
loaded in Load Setting on bottom panel. This allow to have DGIV with differents settings in scenario or ready for long
triop without changing the dg4config setting and loading them.

Bug?: When UMMU dies, he doesn't fall down and if he had a parachute open, it stays in the position it was when he
died. Stuck a little open or fully open.

Solved, to be checked in beta 8 please

Safe mode bug:
Land DGIV somewhere, put it in safe-mode, try pressing t or r: nothing happens and it says noone on board.
Not actually a bug, but an annoying thing, especially if there is no other vessels in the sim.

Cleared to be check in beta 8 please.

Other bug left, rare case, not significiant.

Bad host and safe mode bug: Dock DGIV to ISS, put it to safe mode, switch to ISS, undock.
DGIV will undock, but will still be in safe mode, and you can't leave since there is no power too start the APU.

After all that spam-moron-disclosure bragle i can't be sure if i got the latest beta or if it was already reported, so sorry
if it's obsolete.


Good catch on that one Artlav. We missed that on DGIII. Should be able to turn on the battery so you can start the APU. Of
course whoever hit the "Undock" button in the ISS is gonna catch it.

"Uhh. Houston I think I just accidently set $3 billion dollars of hardware free in orbit." :lol:

Maybe you should be required to use UMMu to EVA from ISS then transfer to DGIV to bring it back. :)



This docking AP is fantastic. I tried several different roll, yaw and pitch parameters. Is there an MFD where I can get
numbers on these? Anyway I found that with the target ship doing yaw and pitch movements it doesn't take much for the DGIV AP
to be unable to catch up. It just keeps chasing the target ship around and around but for roll maneuvers it can capture the
target even though there's a surprising amount of roll.

Hey Dan where did you put those courtesy bags?

By all. Gonna lie down. :sick: :)
