Steam version Beta Report
« on: December 07, 2017, 08:53:57 PM »
Beta Report 3:
=========

1. Much Better working version.
2. Congratulations! you are closer for hitting the jackpot with the checklist procedure.[Now it has an Index, well idea since now the user is able to continue the whole simulation without interrupting the flow of the events, otherwise this might kill realism and immersion].
3. Unfortunately, since not everyone is expert in space exploration missions, we need to consider that many users could get confused because of the checklist Index, since the order in which the checklists are placed is not correct, even myself picked up the second one, thinking it was trans-lunar injection, but unfortunately it was lunar orbit insertion, so even me got confused.[adding certain info link next to each checklist could be useful and educational].
4. In my first attempt to pick the next checklist from the checklist Index , no matter what checklist I click, the only one running is always launch checklist.[this is bad..].
5. Here I post a short video showing some graphic issues [Launching the Apollo 8 scenario found that sky skin map is replaced with ground tiles and some buttons inside the CM are shown black without any texture, weird I know ] and the checklist bug at the end. [Checklist Index won't let you pick a checklist].

Steam Version Beta Report 4

1. Today testing the latest version updated.
2. Apollo 8 mission cheklist.
4. Less graphic glitches.
5. some checklist work, the rest don't.
 
Right checklists:
================ 
a. Earth Orbit insertion. [accessed by clicking either; "Procedures" tab or "checklist" tab from the checklist window].
b. Launch to Orbit.  [accessed by clicking either; "Procedures" tab or "checklist" tab from the checklist window].
c. Pre Launch. [accessed by clicking either; "Procedures" tab or "checklist" tab from the checklist window].
D. Parking Orbit. [accessed by clicking either; "Procedures" tab or "checklist" tab from the checklist window].

Wrong Checklists:
================
a. The Rest, for example : Lunar Orbit Insertion checklist is actually Launch checklist. [in the left tab from the checklist window 

says: Lunar Orbit Insertion, but in fact is the Launch checklist].

Steam Version Beta Report 5 by Hector Melo

1. Trying to run the Apollo 8 mission/Parking Orbit Scenario. once everything loads, we discovered the "Camera explosion bug", Yes as you read it. once inside the CSM, change the camera position, so youre are placed in front the CSM tunnel. when trying to ZOOM in the view, the whole simulation explodes. [This is wrong, since the User might think he did something wrong, but in fact is a vile bug].  

Please Watch this video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQG5bj83zlA&feature=youtu.be

As you saw, I got successful replicating the bug twice in a row. I also tried yesterday to Align CSM/SIVB Orbit with Moon's Orbit as a previous procedure before Trans Lunar Injection. the problem is that I got the "LN GEAR STRESS" message, then no matter what I do the spacecraft always explodes, same as above.

 2. I also was able to test the save scenario feature, it works quite well. [It would be good if a "Save as" option is added to the simulations, since virtual astronauts always have our own method of space piloting, it means that many virtual astronauts save their progress at certain phases of the whole mission or certain procedures/maneuvers]. 

for example The save list could look as something like this:

Save 1 Slot: Auto Save Feb. 11. 2018
Save 2 Slot: [User Deorbit STS-124] Feb. 5. 2018
Save 3 Slot: [User Rendesvous with ISS STS-124] Feb. 5. 2018 
Save 4 Slot: [User Orbit Procedures STS-124] Feb. 5. 2018
Save 5 Slot: [User Reentry STS-124] Feb. 5. 2018
Save 6 Slot: [User Planting the Flag Apollo 11] Feb. 5. 2018

[Of course, this will require many save slots, another idea is to organize, edit and store the saves by missions]

for example each mission save list could look as something like this:

Save 1 Slot: [User Gemini IV Pre-Launch] April. 29. 2018 at 17:15:08
Save 2 Slot: [User Gemini IV Launch] April. 29. 2018 at 22:47:12
Save 3 Slot: [User Gemini IV Splash] June. 1. 2018 at 12:13:04
Save 4 Slot: [User Gemini IV Recovery] June 2. 2018 at 10:02:07

Thanks.

1. I continue using the Auto pilots. [Mean while Trans Lunar Injection Checklist is added to the checklist menu]. once I got my spacecraft orbit aligned with the Moon's orbit by 0.04 Degrees, Suddenly, now it changes to 178.00 Degrees. {as by magic} [so it no matters if you save your progress, you must complete the procedure again? this is definitely a veil bug].
