Space Shuttle dock with ISS
« on: May 16, 2018, 03:56:42 PM »
Hi all,

Here are a couple of videos of gameplay footage of the second Space Shuttle scenario - Space Shuttle ISS Rendezvous.

The steps are roughly as follows:
1) RETRO relative to the docking target until relative velocity is about 0m/s.
2) Point to the target and get as close as possible to within about a couple of hundred meters.
3) Kill relative velocity.
4) Use manual control to align the spacecraft with the docking port.
5) And finally, use RCSTRAN to complete docking.

In this particular scenario, as the docking port of the ISS is on the other side, fly the Shuttle pass it and approach from the other side.

Hope this helps.

Is this your playthrough, ApolloGirl? That's some skillful maneuvering.
