  1. A 2009 Tesla Roadster for all your Falcon Heavy launching needs, 177 parts. WARNING: not tuned for driving on Duna Download
  2. Most people who make this have trouble getting it to actually go forwards, because of all the odd wing panel drag
  3. Textures Unlimited mod, but it's quite involved to get setup, you also need @Electrocutor configs
  4. This guy builds some really cool turboprops, I learned a lot from one of his
  5. I think that might possibly have more parts than my Falcon Heavy! Nice job
  6. I will have to stick it on top of my Falcon Heavy and send it to Dina, it looks like a lot of parts.
  7. It's part of the new version, we complained the new fairings looked...not nice and they gave us stock off-white
  8. Got to within a 100ms of landing this baby, with a TWR of 1.9 I started final burn with 7 Vectors at 3000m, I still had a little fuel left when I hit the surface and was slowing rapidly, the orbiter had been given a 50k apoapsis at separation and I got back to within a couple of Kilometres off the KSC beach. It's doable, the orbiter has a high enough TWR and enough fuel I don't need to baby it so high, which gets me back closer to KSC. I wonder how many lander legs I will need on this thing. Not many craft in KSP give you a big scale feeling but this has 'momentum'
  9. He stopped developing the mod 2 years ago, Squad changed the whole wheel collidor functions so I doubt you could make it work anymore without rebuilding it from the models
  10. Did a bit of a stream tonight https://www.twitch.tv/videos/241896983 working on the BFR, mainly the booster, thanks @Dafni for watching and chatting with me. Booster is coming along slowly, getting closer to a landing attempt Is it madness? I am not sure yet, it's certainly going to take some tricky flying, and a bit of trial and error to nail the right distance for the heat sheild
  11. Just found out those images come from an artists impression that Elon liked, and has possibly used on the SpaceX site. The most confusing thing about the official SpaceX videos is the Booster is shown landing in a crib and also with legs! Mind is racing on how to implement that with my own stock build
  12. Dudes, don't want to get in this argument, I just thought I would show an interesting bit from the IAC presentation. Also there were two versions of the BFR shown, one in the engineering and main presentation, and one in a media video showing the BFR in action, which is an artists take on it. The engineering descriptions, show no flanges. They only appear in the artists video. In regards to the re-entry alignment on mars....it is interesting Also SpaceX's Sep 2017 video BFR Earth to Earth shows no flanges The only ones I have seen with flanges is from a guy called Hazygrayart on youtube
  13. We should reboot the Kerburgring, I was having a play with the new DLC structural parts last night and they offer some interesting possibilities for cars, plus Helblazers stream using structural intakes on his Tesla recreation also offers new building methods - plus new wheels!
  14. There already is a spacedock mod, you could probably pinch it's codr
  15. The new 1.4.1 BFR is flying, sunrise launch, it handles pretty well for such a big ship, landing it is going to be challenging
  16. I use your configs quite a lot, I mainly use stock parts and pretty much kept to stock and porkjet stock, plus Airplane plus and KAX
  17. Awesome! I have been rebuilding the BFR with the new parts and to scale! 106m tall, 31 vectors, and this has a functioning cargo bay! I have not auto-strutted a thing yet and it took like a whole minute to blow up, that's encouraging.I didn't even have launch clamps on it!
  18. @Waz, thanks for the confirmation, looking at my comment, it could be taken as bashing, EVE, which it isn't, I was just thinking out loud why there might not be such a difference between his versions, when using the SVE configs.
  19. Stock EVE has always seemed to perform poorly for it's apparent lightness, often SVE will give better results even though it probably has more effects, it may be related to cloud layers.
  20. I am definitely CPU bound, GPU usage didn't get much above 30 or 40% where one CPU core is almost always maxxed out when in flight
