    [1.4.5] Throttle Controlled Avionics

    @allista Firstly, thanks for this awesome mod. It makes my shuttle flights so much easier than when I had to manually babysit the thrust limiter. I do have one relatively minor quibble: is it possible to change the status colors of the various buttons/toggles? The default yellow off/green on that many of them use is very difficult for me (and I suspect other people who are red/green colorblind) to distinguish between. It's particularly annoying not being able to tell at a glance what T-SAS is set to, which has led to a few rapid unplanned disassemblies... Thanks for your feedback!
  2. Thanks Shadowmage! Can't wait to try it out.
  3. This is Earthshine Station: It's primarily a science station, but I'm stockpiling Material Kits from recycled space junk there and it may eventually turn into an EPL shipyard. It has a full-time crew of seven (5 scientists and 2 engineers), and can go almost a year without a resupply. It has a small amount of fuel storage as well and can act as a refueling stop for ships in LKO. It's composed of nine modules at present, with at least two more planned for the near future (another storage module and a zoology bay). Here's a shot of Shuttle YYZ delivering the first storage module: Here you can also see the leftover engines and fuel tanks from the initial module launches before they were disassembled into Material Kits.

    [1.5.1] Cacteye Optics Community Takeover

    Really glad to see this mod get a new home, thanks for keeping it going @icedown!
  6. Haven't looked at the code, but could you try adding criteria to the pod selection? Something like "ElectricCharge > 0" and/or "Monopropellant > 0" might help cut out parts like the inflatables.

    What did you do in KSP today?

    Been working on this: That's a Class E in the center, with a Class D, three Class C's and a Class B. You can see a miner grappled onto the Class D on the right. I'm hoping to try out RoverDude's Asteroid Recycling Technologies mod to turn this beast into a fuel station.
  8. I'm was seeing this with my shuttle as well. I have a suspicion that the game is misreading the position and/or rotation of the flaps relative to the CoM of the entire craft. You could try installing FAR, that fixed it for me.
  9. I would cut the legs and chutes off the lander and put a chute or two on the rover. Decouple the rover and deploy chutes about 1km above the surface. It would save a bit of weight and I think it's easier on the rover.
  10. That is a thing of beauty. What kind of payload capacity does it have?

    How to kill 2 contracts with one ship

    The best is when you get an orbital station contract and a surface outpost contract for the same planet/moon. Park your base in orbit, get paid; land it on the surface, get paid more!

    Jebediah Kerman - live on stage!

    It's a nice stage...but can it make orbit???

    ContractPack: KerbalAircraftBuilders

    What about some procedural tourist contracts that mimic the already-existing visual survey contracts? Haven't looked at the code, but seems like it wouldn't be too hard. Fly a tourist through a cluster of waypoints above or below a certain altitude so they can take some sweet aerial photos.
  14. To get around the offset cockpit, you can bury a probe core (I like the OKTO2) aligned along the axis of the plane and "Control From Here". I got tired of crashing my angled-cockpit shuttle because I forgot about the 20 degree offset.

    The good ship "Thunder Thighs"

    Now that's what I call a Rocket Man!
