Building a payload hierarchy with CVEL/GPDS

CVE-lite (abridged Common Vessel Extensions) is a programming library to aid developers of add-on vessels for Orbiter 2003-2006. It extends the native Orbiter VESSEL class with additional functionality for multiple payloads, enhanced mesh handling or scenario-file based multistage support. It implements the Generic Payload Description System (GPDS) scenario syntax to allow the end user to express via simple lines in the scenario file any payload and, if using another CVEL vessel, any additional upper stages.

Delta Glider IV

The DeltaGliderIV is a vessel addon designed for Orbiter by Dansteph and succeeded by DeltaGliderIII. It features highly realistic and fully functional cockpit instruments, includes flight instruments along with controls for the life support system, electrical systems, and fuel systems. The DeltaGliderIV simulates a live crew which can be killed by incorrect cabin pressure, temperature or CO2 level. Unlike most vessels in Orbiter, the DeltaGliderIV is able to simulate damage due to overloads such as extreme G-forces or reentry temperature, damaging or destroying the vessel. Crew onboard a DeltaGliderIV are able to perform Extra-Vehicular Activities...(More...)

NASSP 7.0 CSM in Earth Orbit

Project Apollo for Orbiter (aka NASSP) simulates the Apollo missions to Earth orbit and the Moon, and is slowly expanding to simulate planned post-Apollo missions that never flew. The latest beta version features a near-full implementation of the control panels in the Command Module and Lunar Module, and an increasingly accurate simulation of the internal systems (e.g. electrical distribution, fuel cells). Also in the latest beta is support for the Virtual AGC software, which allows you to run precisely the same on-board guidance software as used by the real Apollo Guidance Computer. (More...)

The XR2 Ravenstar is a high-performance spacecraft created for Orbiter by the Altea Aerospace team. The XR2's concept, mesh, and sound effects were the work of Steve "Coolhand" Tyler. Coding work to add multiple subsystems, failure modes are done by Douglas Beachy, as with the other vessels in the XR series. The initial 1.0 release came on October 8, 2008, the most recent being 1.10 on February 20, 2018. (More...)

The XR-5 Vanguard is a high-performance Spacecraft created for Orbiter by the Altea Aerospace team. The XR5's mesh was designed by Russel Hicks, texturing work done by PennyBlack, and payloads designed by Carmen A & Tom Fisher. Coding work to add multiple subsystems, failure modes and Payload Management is done by Douglas Beachy, as with other vessels in the XR series. The initial 1.0c release came on April 20, 2008, and the most recent release was 1.13 on February 20, 2018. (More...)

WindowTack screenshot

WindowTack saves and restores the positions of various Orbiter windows. Every time you move a window, WindowTack saves its position. Next time you open it, WindowTack will move the window to its last saved position. (More...)
