Looks amazing! Magnificent!
One piece of advice I might give is the ability to directly type in the target for the antenna, rather than having to flick through them one at a time as this can become annoying in large save files, and I found this annoying with the DGIV.
Otherwise, this is looking really good!

Hello,

The gps/vtol MFD is a great idea ! :top:

Edit : One thing about firsts screenshots of mission system :
Having an orbit objective around moon's gas giants may be a problem... or not ? :wonder:

Of course one should make some test when designing a mission.
It seem to me that we can orbit around Europa ?

No promise on this, we don't change target so often and I have enough work yet.

Hello,

The moons are full in Planet SOI, and orbits decay more or less. Less (a few) around Jupiter's moons and more around Saturn's moons (SOI at ground less than 50% until Dione included - Arrow landing AP not working with the beacon).

No mistake, i'm made only one journey to the gas giants, approach the moons before landing, stay a few, and take off for the next destination. :)

It should read:

Information:
The GPS/VTOL system uses an Optical Navigation system (OpNav) similar to Voyager 2’s Deep Space Positioning System (DPS). It has three EECAM periscopes with +/- 80 degrees azimuth, +/- 40 degrees elevation, and 10 micro rad IFOV resolution.

Thanks sir  :beer:

Feel free to make any modification, the space is very limited on each line:

Marvellous.  :wor:

I dare to imagine that we could use that GPS/VTOL MFD with anyvehicle (EVA included), right ?  :)

Yep.
If by EVA you mean UMMU, no they can't use any MFD but the interest is limited they are not supposed to go very far.

I just added an "ACTual position" so you can quickly set your actual position as target.

Indeed, the astronauts don't have MFD (unless we build one directly on their helmet  :badsmile:).
But I speak about moon rovers.

In this case, yes, no problem...
Thanks for the input, I'll take this case in account (I plan maybe some voice announcement which may be wrong in case of ground vehicle)

Hey, Dan,

I'm here to provide that encouragement you mentioned in the first post of this thread. You're doing great work! I can't wait until the day I get to try it.

Much thanks, yes its important for me :beer:
I'm finalizing the GPS/VTOL MFD, soon in beta test and final release here (two three days?).
It will of course be also included in the Arrow/UCGO pack.







It will also enforce an Orbiter parameter that to much peoples ignore, the MFD res:

Hello,

Good point. :badsmile:
But technically, while hovering above ground of body like the Moon, we are in space... bad joke :clown:

Seriously, i think this MFD useful to land on "middle of nowhere" from orbit (no base, no object for reference on the Map MFD or VOR/VTOL MFD). We have target distance and direction to follow. Feel free to the pilots to decelerate or reentry to reach the coordinates. ;)
