  1. So, here's my Soyuz 4/Soyuz 5 docking mission Liftoff of Soyuz 2 from the Kosmodrome Beautiful picture of booster separation Hey look, I made a Soyuz 7K-OK Orbital Module! It only needs Igla. Nudge, Nudge Rendezvous with Soyuz 3 Docking filmed by a camera on board Soyuz 3 Closer... Almost there... Capture Not really a big problem, but I wasn't able to get both the Kurs antennae and the OM windows to line up. Good thing I only have moderate OCD Crew transfer from Soyuz 2 to Soyuz 3. The Mun is within reach! Unless someone else beats us there, or our rocket explodes when we test it, or if the biggest supporter of Mun missions dies, or if the government cuts our budget, etc. Oh well, there's always the space station path, right? Bonus content: 761 km above Kerbin. What's going on here?

    I suppose you could right click on the docking ports and disable fuel flow. The only problem that might be associated with this is that you would have to do it on the launchpad. I don't know if you can disable docking port fuel flow in the editor or not.
  3. Why did you use the small tanks to form the main body of the booster? Wouldn't it reduce part count if you used the longer tanks?
  4. You are so lucky. I've always wanted to go to KSC, but every time I suggest it, it gets struck down in favor of vacations to the Midwest. It isn't that far from me either, about a 6 hour drive from southern Alabama. Maybe I'll be able to go down there in 2017 for the SLS launch, if it isn't cancelled before then.
  5. From what I can tell, this is a bug with RealChute. It has happened to me before. To fix it, you can just delete the Tantares file in RealChute. The Tantares chutes will be stock, but they will work well enough.
  6. How did you make the double layered fairing?!? Also, I made a launch tower for the V2. nowhere near as impressive as my R-7 Towers, but then again, the V2 was nowhere near as impressive as the R-7 either:D This one doesn't use any mods besides Tantares itself, but as a consequence, the V2 likes to collide with the tower every now and then.
  7. It looks a little too pointy for Gemini. What size is the bottom node? If it's 1.9 or whatever size the VA is, maybe it would look better with 1.25 meter top node.
  8. The Apollo Service Module carries some batteries, RTGs (a little radiation never hurt anyone.) and a fuel tank
  9. Why didn't I think of this? It's brilliant!
  10. Here's a picture of my ASTP mission if you still want photos for the front page: Yes, I know that Soyuz 19 had solar panels attached. I was planning to add them. I forgot. So now, I have a Soyuz 7K-T for the ASTP
  11. Will this thread follow the Soviet space program as it happened in real life, or will it stray from it a little? Skipping Voskhod, and going straight to Soyuz, for example (which they probably should have done in real life. Voskhod was a dead end program and didn't accomplish anything that Vostok or Soyuz could also do.)
  12. The new parachute has delivered its share of pain on me as well. It is significantly smaller than it should be, and it doesn't even have an icon on the staging diagram. Oh well, the Fuji docking port + parachute makes for a suitable alternative for now.
  13. Spektr's IVA hasn't been created yet. Hopefully we will get some nice looking IVAs in the near future.
  14. Yes, IVAs should come next, they have been a pressing issue for long enough. I wonder if it would be possible for Spektr to have a cross between a station IVA and a capsule IVA. (Seats in the front, facing the window, storage and living space in the back?)
  15. How many Kerbals will the new Spektr have? Three like the old one?
  16. Hmm, I just noticed that the new VA could possibly be used as an Apollo Command Module. Do not be suprised if I desecrate the capsule by using it in American style moon mission in the near future.
  17. Good. I'm wanting to get to work on either OPSEK or a ISS type station with a reduced number of modules. Not sure which yet. Heck, might even use the mini ISS as a starting point to build OPSEK like they plan to do in real life. Anyway, I wanted to make sure that I could start construction without having to worry about the Russian modules be broken when the update hits. Speaking of the update, when I download the Beta, where am I supposed to install it? Does it go in the GameData folder, or in the Tantares folder itself? If so, where in the Tantares Folder?
  18. Do you think that we will have any issues with the FGB parts breaking crafts when they are updated? How much do they differ from the old models?
  19. Just to be clear, we are going to get a double sized crew cabin to use instead of the cargo bay + single crew cabin, right?
  20. As long as the airlock is part of the descent module instead of its own part, it doesn't seem like it would be that hard to create. It appears that the PPTS creation has been set in motion. Time for me to begin work on an OPSEK style station to go with it!
  21. *cough*Dragon V1*cough* Maybe HTV or Voskhod? Voskhod is kind of important, as right now, the pack has a major gap in technical progression from Vostok to Soyuz. HTV would go quite nice with Fuji.
