  1. I really like this mod. It presents me with clear readings and brings up the critical temperatures I need to worry about. If a part is hot, it's nice to see how rapidly it's heating, if something I did to cool things back down actually helped lower the temperature, and how close am I to "hot enough to explode". Thanks!
  2. Perhaps this will refresh your memory (provided you've ever seen it).
  3. Just one question: will this get me to plaid?
  4. You and me both, brother! I just wish I could use tweakscale on the floats that come with Lack's Stock Extension (SXT). That would solve most of my flying boat needs.
  5. Relevant video (Read the comments on the first one if you want to see commentary by people who worked on them. This one has sound and gives some idea of how it was developed.
  6. The only problem I experienced was resolved when I removed the '.txt' extension my text editor had "helpfully" added to the '.cfg' extension you specified. It works. Thanks! Now I can make that FR-1 homage without the engine sounding like it's gasping for breath all the @#$% time.
  7. Roger, copy! I'm winding down today, but I'll give it a shot tomorrow. I already created the file and put it in Gamedata. We'll see how it works.
  8. It would be nice if it stopped dropping off at some low amount that allowed the engine to idle instead of cutting out, like maybe 3-5% or thereabouts.
  9. Ducted fans would be cool, once he gets the tilt rotors sorted. He might be able to use the tiltrotor as a starting point. Maybe if we ask real nice and don't pester afterward? May we have ducted rotors PLEASE? Like that.
  10. Not bad. Most of my VTOL experiments end up at ground level (or below) shortly after take-off.
  11. It's been updated. Have you looked for it here in the forums? I got it through CKAN.
  12. I have that mod. The only quibble I had with it is that you have to add separate landing lights. Since I downloaded a parts pack with some useful lighting, it's become a barely significant factor.
  13. It looks like if you hinged a second ramp to the end of the first, that might give you all the length you need. Also, if the ramp supports the weight of the aircraft, the person building the plane can just extend the ramp and have the front gear bound to an action group with it so he can extend the ramp to the ground and simultaneously raise the front gear, similar to how the C-5 does it.
  14. ISTR that the front ramp on the C-5 is longer because it folds. Each part is half the length and there's (maybe) a third part about a quarter as long as the first two that actually touches the ground when it is extended. I'll go find a pic. *looks* Hey! I found a video of one deploying the front ramp. It starts at about the 2:10 mark.
