New EMU and LRV meshes for NASSP v2.2 (BETA2) ZipDive!  Download

File Description:
This add-on is simply a slight modification to an already superb add-on done by Spacebar Joe (NASSP) and I created it to enhance the ambience and experience of lunar landings in Orbiter. Although the Orbiter simulation engine is still quite limited when it comes to modelling character or land vehicle movement, the NASSP package offers a nice way for you to do this. However, I was not satisfied with the 3D-models that came with the add-on, so I decided to create my own detailed 3D-models for the lunar astronaut (EMU) and the lunar rover (LRV). The new models are named sat5AstroS.msh (745 kb), and LRV.msh (1,617 kb), both of which will OVERWRITE the older NASSP astronaut and LRV models. Please back up these two files (in your meshes folder) before installing this add-on. The LRV was created based on 3-views (plans) photos and drawings that I got from the Apollo Lunar Surface Journals (ALSJ) Website. The EMU model was created mostly from videos and pictures of Apollo spacesuits. It features a semitransparent faceplate (visor up) and you can actually see the astronautís head inside the helmet! ;) NOTE that this is still a BETA (work in progress) and the models will be updated periodically. WARNING: Due to the fact that these models are quite polygon-heavy, some slower computers with low-end graphics cards will run very slow if my models are active. There might also be cases when ORBITER will crash due to the complexity of the models. More info can be read in the PDF file that comes with the package.
