Keep the good work, Dan. I particularly like the cameras which allow to watch the docked deltaglider.

I don't imagine the time you spend in coding. Cheers up !

Hi Dan,

I just wanted to add my appreciation for all your time, effort, and dedication over the years. You are personally responsible for helping make Orbiter accessible and fun for me and, I'm sure thousands of other fans of the game.

Inasmuch as I can't wait to see the new updates to Arrow Freighter, DG-IV, and the others, I also realise getting those updates ready takes time and can't be rushed! So at your own pace, and when you're ready, I will be here eagerly awaiting to try them out.

Much love and appreciation from across the globe.  :beer:

NEWS - Arrow Freighter new Antenna and mission system

Video coming soon (2-4 days)

New antenna:









New antenna display - Notice that the antenna really serve a purpose (see below)

(The screen was taken from Saturn Orbit, hence the long delay to transmit data to Earth)



New Permanent Mission system - Now there is a goal in Orbiter (work in progress)

OMG!!!

I had completely given up on Orbiter since my beloved Arrow was not available. What a surprise tonight seeing first that you decided to update your work and second all the nice stuff coming with this update!!
I am so excited and I very much look forward to go on a solar system tour and release satellites everywhere!!

Thanks Dan for taking the time to update your addons, you make Orbiter fun!! 🙏👍

NEWS - More information on Arrow Freighter mission

Doing the mission code... you'll love it...  :love: The system was a bit confuse in my head before start but now I think I get it.

First, now you can have several mission configuration, you are not limited anymore to "small Tour/GrandTour".
This mean you can download more mission, modify some etc. etc.
On the mission display you'll choose one mission in a list and it will be tied to vessel's name (An "AR01" can do one mission while an "AR02" can do another)
Once chosen, the mission will be "permanent" for any "AR01" vessel in Orbiter and it doesn't depend of one scenario.  Of course, you'd like to use always the current one if you doesn't want to cheat.
Progress, Completion, Success will be remembered across Orbiter launch.

Now a mission can have up to 20 planets with up to 5 Objective for each.
Objective can be:
Sat44 release (UCGO cargo exploration sat) with precise APA PEA and INC
Ground instrument deploying (require Arrow landing with precise Longitude/latitude)
Probe Release (UCGO)
Other ? not decided yet...

You'll receive a note given the precision, I just deployed a SAt44 around venus with PEA 295km APA 7700 km INC 85.5 (real data of an existing) and I got 99.94% precision detected by my code  :)

I plan also radio announce, for example when you unpack a Sat44 with Ummu "Satellite released, nominal orbit, well done etc"  or "Satellite released, but the orbit is not very precise"....

I plan also graphical success (mini cup on mission screen), success music and maybe real 3d medal displayed in the virtual cockpit for each completed mission (permanent, unless you delete the "stats" file)

Last, I'll probably add basic spawning capacity to the mission configuration, this mean that an "AR01" that have a mission might have a "permanent" Asteroid or any other basic object and this will not be dependent of a scenario. (There is already a "GeoSatCom" spawned permanently for communication)

I'm not sure if all this is clear for you, but in my head it is... ;)

Excellent idea to score the satellite deployment and landings accuracy !! we love a good challenge.

If it's all clear in your head, that's what matters! :)

Another idea with that big antenna could be to send some position/mission progress reports to Earth such as "in transit, in the SOI of XXX, in orbit, on grand..." or receive random reports/change in mission objectives..

NEWS - Arrow Freighter's missions system 

After several hundred lines of code (1674 exactly)  :ouf: the mission system is coming well.  :youpie:
It's complex in detail but will be very simple for you.

1-Choose a mission in the list
2-Restart Orbiter
3-Mission is now permanent, just follow the Objectives on the mission screen.

WORK IN PROGRESS ! - It miss more Objectives (rendez-vous, docking, others ?  and the mission display itself is not done...
(But the core system that detect and scan objective completion is done)







Here I just deployed a satellite C44 and got one radio sound message and status message:



And this is how a Mission configuration file will look like
(Again WORK IN PROGRESS, it miss a lot of fix and details)

Quote
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
// Mission configuration for the Arrow Freighter MK2 (2020) by DanSteph
// To create a new mission, copy this file, modify the filename "Mission_****.cfg" where "***" is a unique name (without space and special char)

//
// "MissionName=" the name of the mission that will be shown on the mission's display (button and title, Max 40 chars)
// "Summary=" a short description (max 80 chars)

// "<Description>" A longer description or guide, max 10 lines of max 110 chars ended by a line with "</description>".
//
// "StartPlanet=" Optional ! The name of a body were the mission should start (In orbit or landed).
// "EndPlanet=" Optional ! The name of a body were the mission should end (In orbit or landed).
//
// "Planet=" the name of a body followed by a number of "Objective=" and one "DataAmount=". (Max 20 planets sections)
// "DataAmount=" the total number of megabyte to be collected at 100% exploration (when all objectives are completed). The higher the number the longer it take to collect and transmit.
//
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
MissionName=Giant Exploration   // max 40 chars
Difficulty=Hard and Long // max 40 chars

Summary=Visit Jupiter and Saturn with some satellites launch and landing. //(max 80 chars)

<Description> //(max 10 lines of 110 chars)
Take-Off from Earth's Moon, head on to Jupiter's system, launch one satellite in Io's orbit, another in
Europa's Orbit, land on Europa and drope somes instruments. Then go to Saturn system and do almost the
same for Enceladus and Iapetus. Finally head on to Earth's Orbit.

Note: The start scenario have no cargo, you should take care to load the required one yourself.

Have Fun Commander !

Much thanks for your purchase...
I don't have any donation system, but you can get one more copy of FsPX ;)

Being an independent coder is not easy, after I finish with Orbiter I'd better do a good commercial project
else I'll be in trouble...

But I love the Arrow, I can't stop now...  :why:
