  1. Yes! [procedural] pylons, connectors, beams, trusses, stack/surface adapters...
  2. Features like holding orbital directions, speed vecrors, targets can be compressed into much earlier portion of tech progression of probe cores. Further down the line probe cores could gain a bit more sophisticated unlockable features, such as: a regime for killing horizontal velocity by adjusting pitch/yaw, cases: final stages of powered descent a regime for killing vertical velocity by adjusting elevation (pic 2), cases: suborbital to orbital transition, dragging apoapsis along by pitcing up, or limiting it's altitude by pitching down keeping altitude during earlier of middle portions of powered descent from orbit adjustable constant elevation (pic 3), cases: atmospheric flight orbital insertion docking port alignment adjustables for existing hold modes (pic 1) fine-tune attitude without disengaging hold autocompensation of CoM/CoT misalignment by trimming engine gimbals and adjusting ship control vector Mockup usig KSP1 GUI: Mouse or keyboard controls for trim could be used to adjust.
  3. Hi! Got a new laptop with AMD Graphics and terrain shaders are missing. Tested on a fresh game, setting terrain quality to high. Graphics stack seems to be capable as, for example, Scatterer ocean shaders do work. Am I missing something?

  4. Wow, release title gives... vibes! Can The Maneuver Creator handle transmunar injection from a substantially inclined LKO?
  5. Stock docking port rotation is awesome news! Although this particular implementation might be a bit off. Aligning to the nearest 30 degrees increment automatically right after docking would make more sense mechanically, as if part of the latching process.
  6. I noticed a couple of visual issues with multiple engines: plume animations run in unison and overlaying plumes become way too bright. It might be a good idea to randomize animation starting point. As for overlaying plumes, I don't know, is it possible to make plumes more transparent when there are a bunch of them close together?
  7. Wow. This is a game changer! Looks like hypercharging RealPlume with "@energy /= 5, @speed *= 5" patch is going to become a half-remembered dream. I wonder if it would be at all viable to autocalculate at least some parameters of the plume from engine's Isp and thrust? Like if one had a baseline template for a kerolox plume, applying it to different engines would require only specifying nozzle mouth coordinates/diameter.
  8. Awesome! One thing that bugs me a bit about RealPlume is that exhaust animation is rather slow. IRL hypersonic flames are super fast even in slow-mo playback. So realistic effect might be achieved if flame particles are stretched and blurred (statically) a bit along the direction of motion while moving super fast (almost indistinguishable between really moving or just being randomly sprinkled over plume area each frame).
  9. Congrats with The Milestone! Right of the bat, my favorite killer features: depth masks and hemispherical tanks
  10. How about a hybrid system for career mode? Design a part (semi-)procedurally and commit it to production for some cost (analogous to tech tree initial purchases). Redesigning a part would also cost some money, etc. So it would mostly be the same lego build process, but one could pre-customize some of the pieces for money and science points.
  11. Looking good! Although Ike might be a bit too glossy for a dark rock.
