    [It's finally here!] Apollo Replica "MUNBUG XII" Saturn V, CSM, Lander, Buggy

    100% Stock! NO MODS REQUIRED!!!



    MUNBUG XII - UPDATED - 15th September 2014

    Finally the dust has settled with our new baby and I can resume work on my ships! Munbug XII is the first to make use of the ARM patch components allowing the creation of the most accurate Munbug yet!

    NEW FEATURES

    Completely new Saturn V
    Working interstage
    Retro and ullage motors
    S-IVb now has the Apollo auxiliary control system pods (acts as RCS and lunar crash thrusters for S-IVb)
    Authentic Saturn V performance - appropriate TWR and DV for each stage (adjusted a little for KSP scale and atmosphere).
    Authentic early inbound engine cuttoff

    PRE-EXISTING FEATURES

    Replica Apollo "Spider" lander (with stowed buggy)
    Replica CSM
    Authentic 4 panel fairing between lander and CSM that work like the real thing - NO DECOUPLER BETWEEN LANDER AND CSM!


    USE FRT TO STAY 100% DEBRIS FREE!!!

    If you fly this correctly and attain a Free Return Trajectory using the third stage there will be no space debris at all from this craft.... all fairings, the third stage etc will all return to Kerbin after orbiting the Mun and crash into the surface! Alternatively to mimic later Apollo missions use the auxiliary control system on board the S-IVb to crash it into the Mun!



    IMPORTANT FLYING NOTES

    Before launching hit hotkey 1 twice then hit hotkey 2 twice, this will disable the RCS on the lander and CSM during launch. You will need to activate them again later.

    The fuel tanks on the lander are switched off by default to prevent the verniers in the S-IVb aonctrol system stealing fuel. You will need to activate the fuel flow on the lander tanks manually at any time after you have retrieved the lander from its fairing.

    Hotkeys

    1 - Toggle CSM RCS
    2 - Toggle LEM RCS
    3 - Toggle Antenna
    Esc - Fire escape tower
    10 - detach escape tower and open chutes



    HOW TO LAND ON THE MUN! This is the old munbug but this is still the most efficient way to land ANY lander...

    your rockets are the most efficient, easthetically pleasing, and most of al functional peices of work i have seen done in ksp, so to all the devs tha are reading this, i suggest that you get mulbin to re-design and design other stock rockets.
