Please try it in 2-5, some of the configs did not have the updated connection strenghts due an overwrite error when packaging 2-4.
In any case, when assembling HL please remove the side HLX to check that the center section is indeed attached together, as sometimes back sections added after the sides like to attach to one of the sides instead.
Another thing to note on heavy aircraft is to not attach the main landing gear to the fuselage. Using HL you can attach them to the side HLX, otherwise to the wings or anyway with one part in between the two, otherwise the impact of the craft getting dropped onto the runway gets passed straight to the fuselage and tends to snap it.
Finally, please be sure to post the craft ... tuning connection strenghts is hard, as the actual strength is weighted by the mass of the part.
For now I've done a global value, soon I will update with pre-weighted connection strenghts but to tune its important to have problem cases
P.S. the only sane way I've found to have a craft be stable throughout its fuel envelope and with cargo present or not is to distribute the fuel on either side of the cargo bay and arrange the plane so that the CoM is in the middle of the cargo bay.
I've found using the TT wheels cushions impact on the runway enough that you can attach them to the fuselage - I don't like attaching landing gear to wings usually because wings have a habit of bending, which can then steer you off the runway.
If we're going to have to strut everything, it'd be cool if someone made some parts with grooves in them that you could run struts through; that way they'd look integral rather than the mess we currently end up with. Either that or just recesses so we can attach struts externally & have most of the strut itself inside the part. I realise that would bump polycount up a bit, but is that a bother with this engine?
ERM-AH-GHERD! You sir, are a fricking genuis! I played a lot with your first release, but I had no idea it was going to be this big. Horrifyingly amazing work
Doing remote RemoteTech comsat launches and needed a ground base to do circularize burn controls. So a few mods to the awesome I8-L and i got this..
Had a nice flight at 16km up and got up to about 870m/s with Taverio's configs for the engines. Could have gone faster, but was getting over heating on the engines. Only used about 1/6th or so fuel doing it.
Love love this pack, when i start to do manned missions it will be used a lot.
