Thanks for the update, very appreciated. Good to know about progresses and changes, everything sounds pretty and tasty, and also makes me think that it's going to be a lot of fun. I take this opportunity to wish you, the development team and fellow virtual astronauts a very happy easter. Cheers
Pappolus Cool

Sorry for the long delay between updates!

Its not the thing that we have given up something, not at all.
However, the whole generic launch/onorbit/entry has been changed to reflect the latest shutle procedures and a lot more DPS displays has been added.
It has taken some time, and is not 100% fiinshed yet. But for the first time since SSM2007 we actually have completed STS-1 using the new system.

It rocks, of course, but there is now a lot more to do before you can begin with mission procedures.
We plan to add a real "noob" mode that allows you to skip the entire "commstep".
But you will not get any awards in that mode.
All transitions between launch and landing at EAFB is really smooth now and the deorbit part much better.

Since we decided to use Endeavour as the reference shuttle for the moment the aft right panels need some reconstruction, as someone peaky might have noticed.
And right now the MEDS displays is getting updated to software version OI-33.
The ADI is complete and the quite complicated Ascent/Entry PFD is underway.
That also means all "tapes" needs to be changed. Not complicated but really boring.
But you cant have fun all the time. Roll Eyes

A beta is scheduled in about 2 weeks hopefully. We got Easter coming up so we get off from our main duties and can play with SSMS2 fulltime instead. Grin

Happy easter to everyone out there, and I hope the next report will be good news from the beta testing.

One more question :
anyone knows if it's possible to buy the printed (big book) version of Space Shuttle Crew Operations Manual somewhere ?

Thank you again Smiley

I hate to be that one guy, but what's going on with SSMS 2? We haven't had anything in the "Latest News" section since January, and while I understand that yall are busy and there is probably nothing really interesting to report, it would still be nice to have baby updates every now and then. Something as simple as "We're still working on [Insert thing here] right now" would suffice. We love hearing from you!

You mean the real NASA manual for the real Space Shuttle?
You can find the "Shuttle Crew Operations Manual" here: https://www.nasa.gov/centers/johnson/news/flightdatafiles
Also, I recommend to check out the other files, like checklists (called "Flight Data Files"), including those from previous flights, as well as workbooks and training manuals about the various systems.

Yes the Ascent/entry trainer does sound cool, but its not available even to a US resident unless you have a related US gov't contract.
