Apollo Lunar Landing bug - help please!
« on: July 25, 2017, 09:50:20 PM »
As reported under 1.42 Beta testing, I have been trying a continous Apollo mission from Kennedy launch to lunar landing. After reaching Earth orbit I set inclination to 0, and the program 15 for TLI. I use the Orbit Planner to adjust the orbit to intersect the Moon orbit, and then achieve Lunar orbit and set inclination to 0. I reduce apoapsis to approximately 2100km and circularise the orbit. I then transfer from CSM to LM and undock. I then use AGC program 17 to initiate Lunar descent. At 50km altitude program 63 gets automatically initiated, and then at about 3.6km program 64. I use the Ship > Gear command to extend the LM's legs. Everything looks fine, but on landing the LM crashes with complete loss of hull and crew.

Just to add, on a previous attempt I saved the mission at Lunar orbit. If I load this saved mission, then transfer, undock and use program 17 to initiate Lunar descent, then the LM lands safely. I have taken screenshots of the LM shortly before landing with the display in debug mode but don't know how to post these from my iPad to this forum.

Hi Glowworm51,

Do you have the screenshots saved on your iPad? If so, you can email them directly from your iPad to info at brixtondynamics .co.uk?
