One of my favourites KSP mods of all time! So happy to see it's going to be updated. Obrigado

It's not often that a review of the pack results in a new upper stage, but the new SLS products for munar missions benefit from a smaller and more flexible vehicle, and the J2-X motor gets a larger nozzle for higher ISP in vac.

So, I have a huge, delicate Realism Overhaul install that I keep from updating so mods on it don't break.

I wanted to make an SLS replica, and went to make the Orion capsule, and thought I'd have to do a whole bunch of work to make an accurate one in RO by dredging up the old CMES mod and making it work in newer KSP.

 

But alas, not only is the mod still up to date, and it isn't updated past my install of KSP so it's compatible - which is amazing - but there's been a lot of awesome work done on making it RO compatible!!!

 

Holy crap, man, I freaking love you! This is like, the singular best thing to happen to me this entire week. You have no idea how freaking happy this makes me - and I nearly lost it to see the LDSD (big inflatable hypersonic deccelerators) parts set up for RO! So. Freaking. Awesome! All the love. Make a Patreon and I'll probably throw money at you. Though that might not be legal because this is a KSP mod, but also might be if it's not technically paying for it? I don't even know. Point is this is amazing and thank you for doing this!

:confused:

 

Parts I'm most happy about:

1. Altair lander descent stages.

2. Deep space long-duration habitat modules

 2b. and their cupolas that look beautiful and aren't terribly oversized unlike the stock one

3. Hypersonic deccelerators to make big packages on Mars feasible

4. Orion MPCV

5. SLS. Though I am actually using a custom build for the Block I core, which according to this will use 4 RS-25's, not 5, but will use the CMES core for block Ia and II. But the ICPS and EUS are freaking life-savers. Again, all the love. This may only be #5 but it's my current project (SLS replica of all the currently planned flights) so I'm pretty freaking happy about it.

 

Where's the add rep button? Does that just happen when I like one of your posts, or?...

Product Information Cards are back!

Your 1.2.2 update is almost ready. One frequently requested feature will be returning this time: visual Informatics explaining the constraints and general function of each craft.

Here is a sample:

I was supposed to put new flooring down in the spare room because my wife told me so....

Now I have the perfect reason to skip that and fly to Duna in style today!  Thanks Chaka, you saved my weekend!

Upload of 1.2.2 was delayed for 90 minutes last night because to avoid trouble, Chaka agreed to go to the gym at the normally scheduled time :P
