General Discussion / how to read FDAIs
« on: November 13, 2016, 05:40:07 PM »
In response to some questions we've been getting in relation to the Apollo panel '8 balls', here's a brief summary...


The IMU (Inertial Measuring Unit) is fixed onto the cockpit and moves with the spacecraft. There are three gimbal axes measuring movement of the spacecraft in the X, Y and Z axes. The output from the IMU axes then turns the 8 ball to give a visual indication of the position of the non-moving stable platform (the 8 ball) in relation to the spacecraft. 

Although bearing some resemblance to FDs (Flight Directors) used in general aviation, the FDAIs are not artificial horizon indicators. Rather, they are attitude indicators showing the yaw, pitch and roll of the spacecraft with reference to an initial inertial state, which changes depending on the mission.



The horizontal lines are the pitch lines.
The vertical lines are the yaw lines.
The center semicircle indicates the current pitch and yaw.
The triangle points to the roll.
The red area is the dreaded gimbal lock region.

Report your Bugs here! / Re: cannot close log wwindow ios

Hi ntrung03,

To unlock the control windows long press the round menu button on the top-right corner. Once unlocked you can move the windows around, change size (dragging the bottom right corner) or close them.

The 'x' button and window tabs will automatically disappear after a few seconds, although we are thinking about replacing the autolock with manual locking/unlocking.

Hope that helps!

A really neat short movie about the Apollo 11 mission released by the Science Museum: Legend of Apollo Main (3D)

Highlights some interesting details from the astronauts' perspective. Great animation and drama building!

Hi John,

build 1.34 is ready for testing. You should have received an email notification.

In this build we are hoping to achieve a good level of stability so please keep an eye out for any unexpected crashes, etc.

Also, in the new GUI you need to 'unlock' by pressing the 'unlock' button in the top-right hand corner for a few seconds to show the close buttons and the tabs (to rearrange the windows). The control windows will autolock by themselves. This reduces clutter on the screen by hiding the close buttons/tabs most of the time.

Let us know how it goes! Thnx.

Very close! v1.0.7 has quite a few new features - in game Apollo tutorials, autopilot mode, log window, systems window, orbital inclination, GUI improvements. We're doing the last round of checks before uploading the next beta build, which is due in the coming week. Thank you for your patience!
