One feature that it would be great with would be a repair type thingy so you could fix your broken systems like the
hover engines and gear.

So probably for V...

*Squeals with excitement*

Yay! There is a Five!!!!!! I know it probably won't be for awhile. But I had a funny feeling from the beta you were
thinking of it. The computer option to view damaged systems made me think, there has to be some reason for it.


So are you going to work for the Microsoft FS add-on company thingy? Sorry I can't remember there name, If you are
I might actually buy the simulator... Alos if you are into airplanes, Have you been to EAA? I actually live in oshkosh...It
is crazy how crowded Wal-Mart, Target, and all those stores get around that time.

Hi Evan,
  Dan's already selling FSpassengers for FS9, but now needs to completely rewrite it for FSX.  See
http://fspassengers.com  to see his work... and remember, everyone who supports his FS shareware gives him
more free time to develop for Orbiter. :)
 
  Repairs and sequence-scripting would indeed be amazing.  Just playing the MTKS-SAT scenario gives me goosbumps
over the future possibilities of what we can do!

How about if you eject in space, and it turns out the ship survived with no damage, when can reboard the ship (if airlock is
open), and track down the pieces of the DGIV that were blasted off (canopy, turbopack doors, etc), and allow the UMmu to grab
them and reattach them to the ship, so you can reenter safely. Basically, ship repair capabilities.

Also, when you eject, there's a small hallway that appears behind the cabin, where non-pilot UMmus eject from. Is this only
an emergency exit? This would be nice to use as another place to enter the ship if it's docked.

repair yes, repair a ship where peoples ejected certainly not...
explosive bolt, brutal decompression, even on earth it would
take month of work.

I see more a stuff like FSP with maintenance that you must perform
and parts state and lifetime. In brief if you don't maintain your vessel
with regular maintenance you may get worse and worse failures
that you must repair. (I mean if you survive)

Part's lifetime would be in scenario so if you want to start
with an oooooooold unmaintened DGV you can do it...

But no insurance will accept you of course ;)

That would be for DGV... next years ? don't know.

Dan

What about having a switch that can safely decompress the cabin?

Also, I was thinking an actual truck that drives up to the DG to refuel it.

Give Dan a break. He has work to do on FS Passangers. Take the DGIV out for a spin, make skins, and make cargo. Worry about
DGV later. Be happy with what you have now. It is far better than any other spacecraft/ base in the solar system.  

Cheers,

Yes, FSPassengers now. DGV later. But why can't we start thinking about possible future features?

But Dan should be able to give us an estimated release date and feature list. I wanna know now. When will DGV be done? Has
Dan started work on it yet? Will it have a Earth to Moon and back to KSC AP. How about hardware cockpit support? Maybe he can
add real ATC. It wouldn't be that hard to program. All he needs to do is slap in a few thousand lines of code and he can be
all done. Why doesn't he start it now!!!

:lol: j/k

SPACETECH BULLITIN:

After successful sales and implementation of the DGIV, the CEO and Chief Architect of Space Tech, Dan Polli, was found
hanging from the rafters of his office.

Sources close to the designer say that the problem came from different clients all requesting additional features and
modifications to the existing spaceframe.

One test pliot was heard to exclaim, "Man, enough is enough already. I bet half of the people haven't even performed all of
the cool missions that were included in the original package... I mean, damn, what are you people? Feature addicts or
something? Dan is how you get your fix? Are you a smoker and is Dan your weed?"

Dan's remains will be shot into space aboard SpaceTech 1. He will be sorely missed.


:lol:

Well Dan, Since you want you ashes in space, we will need a container to do that.

The colour scheme should match the Dan Polli DGIV skin. :)
