I am having the same problem again with 2018.3.1, no difference between the launcher and command line. I am using Windows 10 64x, i5-7300HQ, GTX 1050 Ti.
Here is the output from the command line:

I've tried to launch the shuttle from command line without any additional parameters, just
Code: Select all
--aircraft=SpaceShuttle-launch --lat=28.6206 -
-lon=-80.6133 --heading=270
. Still having the same problem. Here is the output:

Re: Shuttle launch problems

Postby Thorsten » Fri Feb 01, 2019 6:01 am

The actual crash is in a 2nd stage routine which for some reason for you runs during first stage ascent - which doesn't work (we can see from the other log entries that we did not yet have SRB separation).

I've triple-checked the code and the routine is not actually called during 1st stage, and I've never been able to observe the problem, the only explanations are that 1) there's somewhere a corrupted version of the Shuttle code around - where did you download? or 2) there's somehow a more wide-spread memory corruption leading to wrong routines being addressed.

I have no idea how to fix a problem like a routine that isn't called running for some reason, sorry.

I've downloaded the Shuttle from the launcher. I noticed that just after liftoff the major mode changes to 102. I don't know what to do.

Second stage is MM 103, so the change to 102 is completely normal.

Is there anything out of the ordinary you're trying to do?

Thanks. I thought the 2nd stage is MM 102.

I am launching FlightGear with the following options:
Code: Select all
--launcher --prop:/nasal/local_weather/enabled=true --prop:/sim/gui/dialogs/metar/mode/global-weather=false --prop:/sim/gui/dialogs/metar/mode/local-weather=true --prop:/sim/gui/dialogs/metar/mode/manual-weather=true --metar=XXXX 012345Z 15003KT 12SM SCT041 FEW200 20/08 Q1015 NOSIG --prop:/environment/weather-scenario=Fair weather --prop:/local-weather/tmp/tile-management=realistic weather --prop:/local-weather/tmp/tile-type=High-pressure-core --timeofday=morning --prop:/sim/rendering/multi-sample-buffers=1 --prop:/sim/rendering/multi-samples=4 --disable-rembrandt --prop:/sim/rendering/shaders/skydome=true --disable-terrasync --aircraft=SpaceShuttle-launch --lat=28.6206 --lon=-80.6133 --heading=270


After opening the session, the shuttle is on the launchpad. I am just opening APUs using the checklist, then engaging the SSMEs (Shift + I). The shuttle lifts off, then suddenly it pitches down and the shuttle crashes.

Are you placed properly sitting on the launchpad at startup or inside the pad by mistake?

Do other mission phases work?

The shuttle is properly sitting on the launchpad. I've tried the approach mission and it works without problems.

How many seconds after ignition does the mysterious 'pitch down' occur? How rapid is it?

(It might be that the Nasal error is a result of a severe problem with orbiter destruction, not its cause, so I wonder what the cause is...).

When things become irrational, I might suggest to find and rename the user FG-directory and start again from scratch.
Sorry if you have done that already.

Cheers.

It happens instantly. Just a millisecond after liftoff, the shuttle pitches down rapidly and crash. It just 2 seconds from liftoff to crash. I'll try re-installing FlightGear.

Re-installing the Shuttle would probably be more use. Very very rarely does re-installing FlightGear make a difference.

What happens if you try another location to start (it sounds like some sort of intersection issue with a ground object)?

It works! After re-installing FlightGear, I've tried again without downloading KSC scenery so I spawn on the water. It works without any problems. The question now is how to launch with the scenery. Is there any way to set the 'height' of the shuttle so it doesn't conflict with the ground?
