Default Moonbase Alpha for Orbiter

Ok another project is a function MBA.

We have 5 landing pads.
also a visit to MainMission:


But because of Orbiter's restrictions of being below the ground. We opted to make the hangar in the long part of the pad. It basically is hollowed out.

The eagle can be raised/lowered on the pad. At each pad is also a travel tube car and 2 comm post.






But on the hangar. I know they were underground. Some sort of crane picked the eagle up and moved it to the hangar.
but somehow the crane when thru the airlock wall.

So Ben suggested a crane to transport an eagle from pad to hangar. Basically an I beam that retracts into its self so the pad elevator will not hit it. Then a crane picks up a eagle and moves it along the track to the pad and then drops it.


So should it be able to rotate?

Also thinking about making the steps up to the pod

Thanks So it looks like no rotation. Just a straight shot. It would be nice to have a big storage area but not possible. Most likely in the hangar area will be the stairs. they should fit all pods except for the lab which door stick out and are different size

If that is what you have to do to make MBA function with Orbiter, then that's fine. The hangar ceiling track moves forward, backward and sideways to place Eagles, but as you said, no diagonal or rotations. The track moves like the Rook in a game of chess.

Thanks. Since we are just using the long area of the pads the hangar. It better much is a straight shot. The rotation is so you can launch from one direction or the other. Like a turntable on a train.

Sounds like it will work. You know on the series they had the gaffe of a cross shaped LP elevator lowers down and surprise now it is a rectangle only arrives in the hangar entry.

I don't even see how the platform could go down with hitting the sides.


Here is the eagle with the crane


another view of the pad with the rail extended and the eagle ready to be brought out.



Also on the stairs for the pods. It looked like the only contact with the floor was at the end away from the pod.

Thanks.

I may have to add some back supports on the stairs.

But it looks like they only contact the floor at the front away from the pod. So they would have to be balanced til it connects with the pod

The miniature model EAGLE has stairs that are not as accurate as the full-scale set with my previous post shows the stairs & railings from "All That Glisters". The full-scale set looks like the railings somehow retract into those vertical slots and the stairs must retract into the pod edge floor.


plus these:

Found it on "All That Glisters" but that is wrong as it is going to lab pod. Which doesn't have that type door.

Didn't see it in the other shots though
I may just put a back support so it would just fall forward

They gaffed shots in "All That Glisters" Lab Pod but they only had the passenger pod set door and stairs. The miniature has shots of the Lab pod and the passenger pod gaffes.

Like my previous post here is a new shot of stairs & railing of pod from "Full Circle"(look second from bottom on right column) http://space1999.net/catacombs/main/epimg/titfc1.html

Here is an Image of an Eagle on the rail. This is a stand alone pad.

Here are some of the MainMission



and exterior shot of the moonbase
http://i373.photobucket.com/albums/o...999/mbanew.jpg

Ok are different set ups of the desks? On the tech plan there is a desk that swivels. in the front. But some shots don't have it. Also the desk are seperated and some times together.

Thanks. One thing I have added was the corner cabinet things and the lamps. I kept the desk the same. with nothing on the top part but on the front the lights and screen. It seems that design changed. It seems that on some desk were is a red and white keyboard?
