Who knows, may be this would work out as some sort of a RnD facility. Would be cool, if you could take a look at that. :)

It would mean a lot for me to see a anything here as well I think it may be a good site for communicating with polar orbits. Thanks anyway for reading this.

GUID  = 98c2763b-7de8-4d09-9875-50063c58f928
name = Georgetown, Massachusetts
latitude = 42.67n
longitude = 70.99w
height  = 2 meters

 

good positioning for polar and inclined orbit communications

good alternate spaceplane landing area on those orbits, don't know if you will do spaceplanes

another position is

GUID = d8a184be-a8d8-4bdd-bef9-1edaf6fdb8e3
latitude = 42.07w
longitude = 70.22
elevation = 2.1336
name Provincetown, Massachusettes

good polar launch site ( only south) only problem is Nantucket island and a small peice of cape cod but after that its open seas.

The format is very important. Entries that do not follow the format I demonstrated will not work and I don't want to spend my time editing and debugging bad locations. Please make sure your sites are formatted exactly as described or else they won't show up in the game.

Added. In you case you were so close to correct that I did fix them myself by deleting the 'm' off the values for Height.

Correction... I added two of them. Three of them were on top of each other.

Hi @Felbourn, i just posted that because some peole will put or did post the height in Ft. And i just post-it in meters. (Sorry about my bad English)

Guid = 3d321cfa-c8d3-4076-897f-3219a4333191

Name = Papa Westray

Latitude = 59.381

Longitude = -2.882

Height = 349

I should point out that 49m is the highest elevation I could find. Anyways, Papa Westray is the northernmost island of the Orkney Islands off the tip of Scotland. I feel like this would make for a great polar launch site or tracking station for polar satellites.

BTW i have an idea, in this timeline the Twin Cities don't exist.

The timeline didn't really split until 1940. Minneapolis already existed in the 1870s and St Paul is even older.

Guid      = 6e88b2fc-26b9-49ca-b46d-2d437cb8821e
Name      = I don't know and I don't care
Latitude  = -0.174
Longitude = -48.907
Height    = 304

I want to see this as an equatorial launch site. If it isn't an equatorial launch site then use it as maybe a tracking station when satellites start popping up in geostationary orbits.

I see a Mossy in the core of that module... :wink:

So, you're not going to use actual J-2X engines in your Ares I?

You might want to check out extra planetary launch pads for much later in the series, it is possible to make it a completely closed loop with MKS which you said you were using :).

Also if this is going to look at things we thought of but never did then does that mean lunar escape system (aka space rocket chair) will make an appearance? Great series so far btw :)

If you search PART files in my Felbourn directory, I think there will be a lot of MODEL{model=Bluedog/bla/bla stuff going on. :)

The J-2X specifically does not exist and can never exist. It was developed in the 2000s and it's still 1950 in my game. Will there be engines in my game with stats that are similar. Maybe. I am not really paying attention to specific details like that since RPA tells me all I need to know.

I know this is really late but...

After Wernher was outed from the space agency, shouldn't he probably... Create a company to launch into orbit and... reuse rockets?? :wink:

He's still standing trial for war crimes. It's an idea for if he's released though.
