  1. I think the interior of the soyuz needs more junk. Those Kerbals have too much free room. They might start getting ideas. A couple of bags arranged to make even the least claustrophobic Kerbal feel the pain might be just the thing. Beautiful work as always Beale.
  2. What you've got is still a brilliant and faithful rendition of the Space Shuttle cockpit. I first saw this mod as a WIP in the ASET props thread and it's since become a must-have for me. Excellent work.
  3. Which is why I mentioned that they are similar and not identical. Regardless, it's an incredibly useful feature for precision docking and one that I'd love to see become stock in the future. And who knows? Maybe with the Historical Mission expansion that squad is putting together we might get some docking ports with bumpers.
  4. The bumpers allow a kind of "soft dock" so you can orient your ships however you need them prior to transitioning to a "hard dock." CX aerospace has a similar feature with its gendered APAS docking ports.
  5. @scavenger Just trying to help brother. I'm glad to hear you get things working again, even if it's still a mystery.
  6. Poodmund is working on it. Be patient friend, it'll come in time.
  7. @scavenger Are the clouds showing up in the game itself? Or are they just not present in the main menu? It's a known issue that clouds and post-processing effects like Scatterer don't show up in the menu. If things are running fine in the game, I wouldn't worry too much. Otherwise, you'll need to post your logs and possibly a picture of your gamedata folder. I'm not super literate with the coding so these folks are the ones who can help more. But I can help with simple operator-level stuff.
  8. I'm just giving you a hard time. Take all the time you need. We're just going to end up crashing your hard work into the sun anyway.
  9. KW rocketry only adds the parts to build the Saturn V, and while they're high quality parts, the art style is a few steps closer to the real thing than most of the art in KSP. BDB on the other hand offers a full array of parts to not only replicate Apollo style lunar landings, but the other Saturn launch missions as well. All of which are wrapped in a beautiful and low-memory footprint stockalike style. The ninja JoseEduardo is right. BDB is the stockalike FASA equivalent. like Tantares is for Russian spacecraft and Contares is for European spacecraft.
  10. The arrangement of the piping looks like a swastika.
  11. I'm well aware that the actual Soyuz doesn't have solar-tracking panels. Even if I were to mount the fixed variant in the proper orientation, my point would still be valid. The fairing would be unnecessarily wide given how far the panels would stick out from the hull. Either way though, this is a fictional super Soyuz used by little green men (and women) so it doesn't really matter.
  12. The actual Soyuz solar panels wrap around the hull, the tantares ones don't, so if I were to mount them properly, the fairings would be unnecessarily wide. This model of Soyuz isn't even that expensive to launch compared to say, a shuttle stack or something. 123k funds on a full r7 stack. But even then I make enough back by recovering the spend stages that I'm only really losing a quarter of that maybe? Very cost effective crew vehicle. And that new Soyuz paint scheme is sexy. Nice work Beale!
  13. Whatever you choose to do I know it'll look fantastic. You've got a real knack for building worlds.
