  1. There's a minor problem; all the FFT engines that require their power banks to be charged will immediately shut off as soon as you activate them, no matter how high the throttle, restarting their charging processes again. I don't know if this is part of the actual mod but tbh it's really bugging me, think you could look into it, Nert? <_>
  2. Amazing progress so far Bonus, this looks like it'd go very nicely with mods like Near Future Technologies and MKS! And yeah, I rarely come here nowadays... mostly to lurk
  3. Goodness, stop getting crippling injuries at the gym! One more injury will equal an instant one-way ticket to the HOSPITAL, so, just be very, very, very, very, very, VERY, VERY VERY careful while exercising :P

  4. Dang, stop injuring yourself at the gym! Any more injuries, and you might get hospitalized for a long time, and we REALLY wouldn't want that!! All I'd suggest is to be very, very, VERY careful when you're exercising, also I hope you get better HYPER SOON! More suggestions!!

  5. Nice to know that you're still working on the mod! BUT, what I'd suggest for the centrifuge's design is one similar to the "HOPE" centrifuge with a counter-rotating, 8-tooth gear-shaped flywheel section (most credible) or maybe an initially compact, solid ring that furls into shape via elaborate hydraulics. (think Hermes; but with hydraulic, expandable pipes replacing the truss) I'd also really suggest for the smaller Spacecraft Spine trusses to have crew transfer tubes on the inside ^^;
  6. Decided on a centrifuge design? Oh, and why don't you try going here to find more good centrifuge designs? http://www.projectrho.com/public_html/rocket/artificialgrav.php
  7. Really wonderful work as always! I can already sense the potential for this plugin, plus I think you might be able to make a centrifuge like the one in that video of the Bussard ramjet generation ship video Btw, did you like it?
  8. Well, about the issue about the resources, and for making self-sustaining motherships/mobile space stations, I think a giant fuel scoop would be very useful for those problems. So basically you should make a giant fuel scoop which unfurls like an umbrella, a translucent hexagon-patterned membrane held in shape by a thin but really strong frame, and can be changed to vacuum up xenon gas, argon gas, or LH2 as the ship it's attached to travels across space. If RealFuels is installed the scoop will siphon up different resources and transport them to their respective containers in any fuel tank on
  9. Well, I can help with that! I think you can make the centrifuge a lot like the Hermes, which has an undeniably awesome centrifuge. So it can be identical to that, but the whole structure can fold up to fit within 3.75m fairings - each of the four sections expand out, and a flexible, pressurized tube extends out and unfolds rather like an oversized accordion from each section, and links to a transfer hole on each section, the structure of the centrifuge-shape-making tubes supported by a thin but incredibly strong collapsible frame. You can also include windows on the back, but they should
  10. Could you change my username to Siphonophore cause my current username is a bit dumb?
  11. WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! @Xannari Ferrows?
  12. Oh, that's too bad KP 1.1 won't existalize, but Mother sounds so cool! I looked at the dev thread, and now that I think of it, I so agree with making a new mod - and when you release Mother, PLEASE, PLEASE keep the Leviathan Solar Wings - they're essential for MOAR POWER!!!!! Oh, and can I give some part suggestions for Mother?

  13. uhh not to ruin everything but isn't update v.1.075 supposed to be out now? It's midnight BTW
  14. Well for one, besides IRL application of pressurized containers like storing fuel and stuff, if I had a pressurized, hollow T404 separated from the unpressurized T404 hangars by a two-door hydraulic airlock, I think I'd store a custom-made, really elaborate interior inside it complete with seats and separate rooms for some of my Kerbonauts besides the main crew, reminiscent to one of those Bigelow habitats. Plus, it'd allow players a bit more freedom in making giant starships with enough habitation space for your intrepid crew to goof around inside, and for that T404 airlock bulkhead - it's su
