    Omg now this is my favorite cockpit.. It even has in-built docking port.. ;-;

    I loved the models
  3. Would this work in 1.4.5? I couldn't find old 1.4.1 version of this mod. found it. edit: for older versions; https://github.com/linuxgurugamer/KSP-KEI/releases
  4. I don't know if that's how it supposed to be, but SPF-50 solar array doesn't turn it's surface towards the sun, but the exact opposite it turns it's surface to mount on same the plane with the sun (mostly radiators do that) until both surfaces shadowed. In that position, it generates maximum energy o.O when i forcibly rotate entire ship with SAS to make SPF-50 surfaces face the sun, it generates 0 energy.
  5. Omg yes this is the mod i want! Good luck dagger for the development of this masterpiece

    [1.5] Real Fuels v12.7.3

    Yes, iodine stands in it's solid form at 113.7 °C and below. With this way, much more fuel can be stored in same volume of fuel tank, than xenon or argon, so much more density & less fuel tank mass is there. This is from NASA's pdf during their tests so there are still flow, but keeping fuel tank-engine distance short would be more ergonomic since certain climate environment is being kept in tank & propellant flow line during tests.

    [1.5] Real Fuels v12.7.3

    Iodine can be used in ion engines Same ion engine can use different types of fuels such as xenon, argon, iodine etc. Here is a performance comparison between xenon-iodine Some more info about iodine in ion propulsion systems Iodine's usage as fuel in NASA programs ; https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Lunar_IceCube#/Propulsion It could be so much fun to play with it

    hi, can iodine be added into the mod?
  9. Okay, i will try it Iodine was being tested to replace Xenon as a fuel for a while, here is some results; https://digitalcommons.usu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?filename=0&article=3696&context=smallsat&type=additional https://ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntrs.nasa.gov/20160006296.pdf Density: Iodine has much more higher density than it's rivals Xenon & Argon in a same volume of storage tank. Here is the chart taken from US Army Space and Missile Defense Command's PDF: Here is the deltaV capability comparison between different fuels in same amount of volume, from US Army Space and Defense Command PDF (including Xenon): ISRU factors: It can be found in basicly most of the earth, oceans & seas are rich with Iodine also it's being mined much more than Argon & Xenon gasses. Boiloff: Since Iodine keeps it's solid form, as an advantage to Xenon & Argon gasses, it doesn't need Cryo tanks to be stored. Isolated lightweight fuel tanks are enough to keep Iodine solid & keep boiloff rate zero. Transport factors: As it keeps it's solid form in both average earth temperatures & space temperatures, shaping & transfering fuel is much more easier than it's rivals Xenon and Argon gasses, since a leak wouldn't turn the day into disaster. Cost: Significantly cheaper than it's rivals, both Argon & Xenon gasses. Tank mass ratio: Far way lighter tank mass than Argon & Xenon tanks, since Iodine keeps it's solid form at 113 °C & lower temperatures. It doesn't need to be stored in Cryo tanks. Engine selection: Ion engines just like Xenon & Argon. Same Ion engines should practically be worked as it's proven that Xenon, Argon, Krypton, Iodine all worked in same ion engine during tests, here; Future Aplications: https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Lunar_IceCube#/Propulsion NASA's Lunar IceCube satellite to be used Iodine fed ion propulsion engine in 2020 (date also fits with the name of "near future technologies") As a summary: Iodine is cheaper, it has more deltaV than Xenon/Argon in same storage volume, it's storage tank weight is significantly lower than Xenon's/Argon's, it's far more accessible, it doesn't boiloff. Here is the chart to compare required energy/thrust ratio with Xenon from NASA's PDF ; Best regards..
  10. Can Iodine fuel & engines be added into the mod?

    [1.4.X] KS3P

    rss + tu + ks3p. A base on Titan's surface I loved this mod
  12. Nope. Oxidizer is a oxidant that oxidize the ignitable fuel. All kind of engines that use any kind of hydrocarbons use oxidizer. Any kind. Let it be; - Diesel engine - Turboprop engine - Turbofan engine - Rocket engine Only the source of oxidizer changes. Not all engines that use oxidizer and the hydrocarbon fuel to be ignited are "rocket engines" You can very well feed diesel engines in a vacuum environment with liquid oxygen tank and it would just work well after necessery modifications. Again; an engine that uses hydrocarbon+oxidizer does not mean it is a rocket engine.
  13. Rocket's working style is sooo different than diesel engines, turbo diesel engines also consume oxidizer, but they get oxygen from atmosphere to burn the fuel in cylinders, they are not rocketsss what i asked was that an isolated engine from atmosphere which would use liquid oxygen from the fuel tank instead of taking oxidizer from tha atmosphere. Btw i made a small edit in cfg files for folding propeller, if anyone else want to use same type of engine i didn't touch engine's power and i took it's fuel consuption as 0.03, and i took it's oxidizer from the fuel tank consuption 0.0366 to make it proportional so they will be finished at the same time. Code i changed is; useVelocityCurve = True PROPELLANT { name = LiquidFuel ratio = 0.03 DrawGauge = True } PROPELLANT { name = Oxidizer ratio = 0.0366 } didn't touch the rest. I took rotax912 turbo diesel engine as equivalent example engine for fuel consuption rate.
  14. Nooo, rocket engine is not efficient in dense atmosphere, but turbo-diesel propellers are more efficient in dense atmosphere and low gravity places. For example MQ1-Reaper: It uses Rotax 914 turbo diesel engine, uses fuel and air intake. It can stay in air more than 20 hours, with huge range. I want to use my 10t aircraft on Titan as an airline between different bases. What i ask is, a turbo diesel engine being fed with oxidizer instead of air intake Currently all turbo diesel engines in this mod uses air intake. Perheps i can do such edit myself too but i don't know what kind of liquid fuel and oxidizer consuption would be realistic on which propeller..
