Steam beta (3)
« on: February 04, 2018, 03:32:22 PM »
1. There is no manual attitude control with the CSM. Is there any reason for that? I tried to configure the guidance system for manual control, but didn’t succeed (CMC mode to FREE, ST CONT to SCS, RCS TRNFR to SM, SCS TVC to RATE, manual attitude switches to ACCEL CMD).

2.Using the “Mid Course Correction” mission: Running checklist 5-MidOrbitCorrection in Auto mode, the checklist ends with program 11 with an error msg “spacecraft is not at launch port”, and the SPS engine starts burning at full thrust. If I don’t shut it off manually, the perigee alt. increases until the orbit becomes hyperbolic… And no mean to reach the moon.

3.If I go to Config / Realism, and chose Automated Orbital Burn OFF, the orbital burn configured in Orbit planner is transferred as dVs to the burn pad, but then, running program 40 (or 104) does nothing. No burn. Only the Automated Orbital Burn ON option seems to work.

4.Once you’ve used an Automated Orbital Burn, the attitude auto pilots become ineffective. You can no longer use Prograde (prog. 20) or Normal Plus (prog. 22) for instance.
