Hi, guys!

Question for you, how do I maneuver the space spacecraft in space simulator IOS? Thanks!

                    Cheers,

Hi Vincent .

you re right .we have totally forgotten to edit/create the user's manual / doccumentation . I was thinking on a user-contributed wiki here on the site ..

I ll get right on that now . 

Thanks ! .

well , you can maneuver it in a few different ways .

-Im assuming you got the lower control panel ( press "control" tab ) extended.

you can control the Spacecrafts via : 


->Automatic Pilot ( i.e. ,  launch to orbit  iss program 11 , hence  ,start the DSKY  (pressing 'PRO' ) ,  type VRB 37  NOUN 11  ENT and It should launch following the actual sorfware emulated in the AGC.

->Manual attitude . Lets say you are in orbit . Select "Attitude" tab , and then you can press
"PROG" for prograding , i.e. orienting the spacecrtaft on its velocity vector
"RETRO" for retrograde ,etc.
"HLEVEL" for wing level ( for the hshuttle ) 
"HOVER" hovering , perpendicular to ground , 
"NORMAL+/-" orient the spacecraft normal to the orbital plane ( for orbital changes , specially inclination ) . 

pls note that selecting any of those ,  actually sets a particular pgram in the AGC . (i.le.   selecting "PROG" would be the same as setting program #20 , or the same as typing   VERB 37 NOUN 20 ENT

->Manual 

for manual control , you can hit "manual" tab on the right of the panel ,and a on-screen virtual joystick will appear . then you can control the spacecafts'  pitch & roll with the right joystick , Yaw with the left lever , and the throttle using the throttle lever. 

should you want /need to use the liear RCS , there is a button near the right joystick in which you can toggle linear and angular RCS . If linear( vel ) RCS mode is selected the entire panel will turn red , to remind you of that .

I ll try to  format this into a neat doccument for the wiki... as soon as I can find some time ! .

Thank,s

Hi, jcarrion!

That makes sense! The space simulator IOS manual would be great! Thanks!
