Who said it wasn't a cannon? :wink: 

I've discovered sharp and smooth edges last night, so it looks like this now.

This freight looks awesome! So is it a SSTO freight or we could get a even more awesome detachable booster?

That made me laugh out loud, truly, i hadn't considered flying it into orbit! You're a crazy :confused:. The pictures in OP were with gravity hack turned on so i could test it. But yeah if you want to fly it into orbit i bet you could!

It's an endgame craft so I always planned on using a construction mod to build it in orbit. I was planning on completely nerfing the engines in atmosphere as a way of balancing how powerful and efficient they need to be to move 3000tons of freight. So you could always just tweak that one setting to turn it into an SSTO

Note that MKS is moving away from EL to Ground Construction - which can't build in orbit, only on a surface.   Now, that doesn't mean you have to build it on *Kerbin* - I'm working on a shipyard on Minmus for building otherwise orbit-only craft - but it does have to be launched from *someplace*.

So I need to make a booster myself, not a big deal:cool:

I always have problem using MKS with EL, changing to GC might be a good news to me. But to be honest, I don't want to deliver anything to the colony from KSC, it is too far away in most of the planet pack MOD.

Finished the texturing work on the detail pieces tonight. I've made loads of little bits and some structural stuff that i can use to make all sorts of different things.

We've got stockalike machinery/science/batteries, a KSPB style telescope and and MKS shaped machinery/airlock. It's going to fit along nicely with my career saves.

Here's some examples of the detail pieces in use.

See how i can build up quite complex looking objects with no messing around unwrapping or texturing.

Some of the bigger pieces

The hatch.

The orange 'ranger' style back will only be used on the internal space with permission from RD I'll just be using the detail pieces. Just to also clarify where objects look stock/KPBS/USI they are all my original models and textures designed to fit with those mods.

would the greenhouse work with a LS mod? Also, how many Kerbals would this hold without any extra crew modules? (just the main ship).

How about a probe core.

It'll have a control core in the command pod.

Yes it'll work with USI-LS primarily but i can include configs to use them in any LS mod. Crew capacity is going to be 3 in the command pod and 4 in the freighter body (they'll be separate parts).

The base texture for the outer crewed sections is done just need to do the greenhouse/cupola sections which will be much less work as i can copy almost everything, should be pretty smooth sailing from here on in. Just assembling modules from all the parts, doing custom AO bakes for any panel with an object on it and decals for each module. Then to work on the freighter!

Looks awesome. I've been searching for something like this (large, flat-sided sections), for Minmus VTOLs, for at least a year! :D

I love where this is going. Could you possibly help me out with a mod's modelling? You're great!
