  1. [quote name='Van Disaster']Look a little harder: [URL]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQi9_K7FBrM[/URL] Fairly sure someone 1.0-ized it, if not then a new one is being built anyway.[/QUOTE] What mod is that, and is there a way to do it without a huge ugly box on the side of the craft?
  2. I don't even bother with rovers in KSP. The Apollo rover was folded up and tucked into a tiny compartment in the LEM. Is there any way to do this in KSP, or with any mod? Nope. Instead you have to "poverty rig" it and make some ridiculous looking craft. I don't even bother landing on planets anymore as there's nothing to do and walking around in low G sucks. I just design and launch rockets and it's getting... old.
  3. Thanks! I edited the cfg file accordingly. I really appreciate your help!
  4. Sorry for the double post it won't let me edit. Another thing I thought of was an "escape cover" for the pods for a LES to attach to.
  5. Please please please update for 1.0.5 these are my default command pods these days! Also some ideas I had while playing with this thing that made me think "wouldn't it be cool if it had: * A parachute cover for the top of the pod that includes space for a Clamp-O-Tron Docking Port + parachutes specific to this pod (the stock radial chutes look bad on it). When staged, the cover would detatch (and carry the docking port with it) exposing the parachutes. * A thin decoupler that sits between the pod and the heatshield. When staged, it decouples the heatshield and balloons inflate!
  6. I'm still playing 1.0.4 as my favorite mods have yet to be updated.
  7. Will this still work in 1.0.4? I've been playing 1.0.4 still while waiting for my mods (there's a ton) to be updated for 1.0.5
  8. So, do you NEED RSS for this mod? I want a Kerbal scale real solar system but not all the realism, just stock.
  9. Ah Christ, another mod I need to DL once I get home.
  10. I'm asking how to get things on the planet to do stuff with. I can land a lander and return it to orbit but as far as building (and landing) rovers or bases, let alone close enough to interact, is beyond me.
  11. Hey everyone, Now that my design for my interplanetary transfer vehicle is wrapped up, I'm wondering how to get enough stuff onto the planet in the same general area that I can "do" things down there? Like a big rover, maybe some way to set up a base, maybe some unmanned rovers, etcetc. I like the challenge of getting to planets and landing but I find that 99% of the time I get out, plant flag, and immediately leave after taking a few screenshots.
  12. Thanks for all the help everyone! I'm sticking with liquid fuel + nuclear engines. Ideally I want my ship to be able to refuel off asteroids (do you even encounter those outside of the Kerbin area?) or at least send a lander onto a moon and refuel.
