A Way to Bring Back the Old Textures

1 post in this topic

Posted (edited)

I know that there has been talk in the past of bringing back the old part models. I believe I have a method of doing so. Basically, some new parts with the old textures (smoothed out, but staying true to the original textures) would be added as cheap, low-tech items for an early space program.

 

TCFF-01

A cheap but heavy fuel tank. Its designers insist that TCFF does not stand for "Tin-Can Full of Fuel."

 

TCFF-02

The half-size little brother of the Tin-Ca-... I mean... TCFF-01.

 

BR-1A

One of the first rocket engines ever produced on Kerbin. It was quickly adopted by smaller space programs because of its cheapness and was used as first-stage propulsion and as a heavy-duty grill.

 

BR-1B

The gimbal-capable cousin of the BR-1A. It became popular as a cheap upper-stage rocket and carnival ride.

 

X-01 Command Pod

The original command pod. Because it was built in 2.5m size while most industries were focusing on 1.25m size, it was phased out. However, some rookie rocketeers have taken a liking to the old surplus pod and have been putting it to good use.

 

APE-LAF

The Atmospheric Propulsion Engine for Low Altitude Flight is the first jet engine ever produced for space programs. Its design was highly controversial since the APE series was not a rocket and its target industries focused on space travel.

 

APE-HAF

In response to the controversies surrounding the APE-LAF, the High Altitude Flight variant was developed. Its designers claimed that, while it still required oxygen to function, it was technically a rocket since it burned fuel directly as opposed to spinning a turbine.

 

APIS

After complaints of the APE series of engines sputtering and not working, the Atmospheric Propulsion Intake System was slapped together. It was fascinating to pilots because of the mysterious blue glow that it would emit at high speeds.

 

ACM Mk1

When space programs began asking for a more permanent and aerodynamic alternative to command pods, the Aerodynamic Command Module was developed. Its designer insists that it is not a nosecone with controls and a window thrown into it.

 

ACM Mk1b

After slamming a plane into the side of a hangar and flattening the front of the ACM, it was accepted as a new variant.

 

ACM Mk3

The chunky prototype of the Mk3 Cockpit. While heavier, the ACM Mk3 is cheaper and slightly smaller.

 

C7 SLG

C7's own Static Landing Gear. Intended as cheap, heavy-duty landing wheels. Not the most aerodynamic of aircraft equipment, but it gets the job done.
