GinGin, did we get this wrong?

It looks like they are lit in their entirety vs just the text?
I haven't been in the sim in awhile, isn't just the text illuminated in our version?

I can not answer for the Space Shuttle specifics, but those like the similar lit buttons would very likely be lit Jay-El brand or similar push-button switches. There are both ones ones with lit text on a black background and ones with black text on a lit surface. Only way to find out is if it either is stated in documentation or by looking through a lot of reference photos and footage. I would expect that some cockpits on museums might have been uncertain as well so they might have to be given less weight when comparing references.

I will check but I think it is a bit overdone on the real sim pic.
I think we got it good .
I will check on other real sim samples .

The "real sim" is in fact a "real photo", even with only the text lit, the photographed button it is quite likely to show up saturated! Look how far we're gone now, we're a bunch of psycho-maniac for sure :D

@Wayne:

In the Real Sim, those drag chute lights seem to be working a bit differently than the other one ( halo like we see in the pic)

Image

I dont really see that in other real pictures or books.
I think we might got it right, black part and enlighten letters (like the other pushbuttons), not sure.
Need to find a HD picture of that part in the real one.



Ready for another launch session by night
