They worked very hard to make these parts and we have organized them for Monkey Exploration because they are excellent. Also, Chaka wishes to thank our awesome 1.3 beta test team: @Space Kadet , @OV-102, @Jarlgnarök, @davidewei , and of course @MeCripp for putting in many hours of science which made the quality of this release possible. Special thanks to @rsparkyc for updating Procedural Fairings to 1.3!

  2. Beta testing is now closed pending release of update today or tomorrow. We know it's been a longer than usual update process, but we've killed some older bugs that didn't get resolved in the last version, and the update is in final cleanup and prep now with a number of strong new features. 1) All 1.3 related issues fixed and dependent dll products updated with fresh license verification 2) Procedural fairing issues fixed ( Chaka bases work as normal procedural bases once again ) 3) Excessive torque on boosters removed 4) New upper stage and cryo MTV NTR stage textures and features, including new active radiator function on the tank 5) TAC LS supported on habitation modules 6) Monkey rover wheels re engineered and working great 7) Updated all craft files to work out various rough edges, such as XLS booster detonation after sep etc, etc, etc... 8) Added full support for Jool - class missions 9) Even more craft files and texture fixes 10) IVA raster prop issues fully resolved 11) All new inflatable heat shield for Chaka class vehicles based on squad model ( older inflatable retained for MTV operations )
  3. Chaka 1.3 is essentially ready. We would like to run a quick beta test. If you are interested, please reply asap and you will get a link.
  4. -Rover Gran Cupola The Rover you always wanted, but were afraid to ask for.
  5. M-Rover passes critical flight test. Handling on Duna surface is a triumph of Kerbal engineering.
  6. We did a few studies a while back on splitting out the 3.75 craft into a separate pack, but then you end up with Orion and several other systems in both... so it just really got complicated. If you have a list of favorite parts or systems we could slice you out a piece of pie easily, since we know where everything is and what it does.
  7. Introducing: Chaka M-Rover The ultimate roving machine. For several versions, the rovers in Chaka Monkey have had poor driving dynamics. Not anymore. A complete redesign of the wheel hardware using the latest model from Squad, and increased wheel size, gives this version the ability to control itself on any extrakerbin surface.
  8. "Dear Chaka, they say you are really neat, but it has been a while since you've added any new major parts to the pack. What's up with that?" Squad / Chaka Inflatable Heat Shield Type II:
  9. Thanks to the quick and decisive work of @rsparkyc and swiftly granted permission from @e-dog, procedural fairings have been recompiled for 1.3 and are working perfectly. That was the last step needed for update. We're going to take a few days to review the pack and craft and then you will have it!
  10. Chaka 1.3 SLS Block I - Orion First Flight
  11. Chaka 1.3 First Spashdown
  13. KSP 1.3 and Chaka Monkey Exploration Systems 1.2.2 are not compatible at this time. Thank you for your continued support and patience! Regards, Y.C.
  14. To coordinate with the next update of KSP, a rework of all Chaka IVA's is being evaluated. Thanks for your patience!
