  1. I guess i've found a typo in "EVO\Configs\EVE_Configs\Textures.cfg" : In Object EarthLand, "texXn = EVO/Textures/MainTextures/EarthLand/EarthLandXn" when it should be "texXn = EVO/Textures/MainTextures/EarthLand/Xn" Same with Xp, Yn, Yp, Zn, Zp. Now the land from space in my KSP RSSROEVO looks similar to mod-creator screenshots. (and EarthLand texture is not red marked in the EVE menu) I've done a few tests by deactivating parts of the mod, and it already looks very good just with EVE. And this confirms my previous feeling : EVE config is ok (afte
  2. You should use Ckan to install RO on a clean KSP. I guess Master branch is mostly for devs.
  3. ROConfig file for the Flaps and the XXL Gridfins would be great. This is almost only what is missing for a realistic (physically) Starship in RSSRO.
  4. I really like the plume on the right on the first picture, the rapier one ? it should be fine for the SL raptor. I'm more surprised with the second picture, it looks recent (less than 20 years) and it's clearly Cyan lol. Now i was looking at this : And damnit lol, it looks mainly red/orange/pink/purple after the flow is stabilized. But during daylight tests (Boca) i find it looks more bluegrey and pink (maybe 50%-50%) at full power, and yellow/torch mode at low power. In the end it's not easy to say realistic color is this one or that one. Maybe 2 or 3 d
  5. Very interesting, will the Waterfall methalox SL config have the same diamond effect as realplume ? it's the best (realistic) part of realplume, after that during ascend i find the expansion and color (all pink ?? when it should be 80% bluegray and 20% pink/purple imo, but can't change the tint) unrealistic, Waterfall may help fix it.
  6. Nice work with the last update : The first cloud layer looks better during ascent (tested two launch sites at different hours). Colors are less exaggerated now imho, it's very close to real. Maybe there is a little too much shiny white covering earth, i give an example : EVO32k - Display 2k - 200km Now if you compare to it for example : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFyGNeJqH3w&t=40 (yes it's a little blurry but it gives a good idea for colors/deep blue/white/landscape) In the previous/first release, you could clearly see the nice blue of the sea, now i
  7. Manual install and it worked. It looks better than raw RSSRO and works at first try. But : - it pumps 1.6Go RAM and 1Go G-RAM and Cpu load is heavier (i guess normal), FPS stay ok not a big difference. - ground is full of lights during the night. (KSC looks like it's in hell). edit ok i see the fix - yellow dense fog was the first layer during an ascent ?? (it looked weird) - a little too green and pink (or colors a little exaggerated) I will keep it obviously, i will find a way to tweak (reduce RAM and G-RAM mostly) for my hardware. Thanks.
  8. Big thanks to the RSSRO Devs. It was running on my previous comp (i5-6600+16Go) correctly, and now even better on the new one (i7-10700+16Go). This is really amazing, it almost turns KSP into a realistic simulator, since 3 months i've spent some time testing real or prototype rockets and trying to find major inaccuracies, but didn't find anything big. Note : KSP 1.10 is 99.9% ok (ROcapsules is the only mod from the ROsuite that get stuck if you try to add it)

  10. KSP RSSRO (and Principia), procedural tank has a setting "tank-sep-starship" (stir-welded), add to this Raptors (small tweaks : SL 108% = 1921kN, Vac 105% = 2055kN) and procedural fairing (density 0.12), and the result is very close to/can be crossed with known data (wikipedia, etc). There are some limitations (for ex : small wings are not flaps) and possible inaccuracies, but so far it looks fine.
  11. Did i hear 30Tons header tank (Lox) ? i'm surprised : (or is it 13T ?) - they only need 11T total to desorbit and land safely, why would they put so much fuel in the top ? - the only reason i see is to have more weight in the top, that gives a better balance during atmo reentry, this explains why they need bigger flaps at the top compared to my simulations. It also gives more margin for fueled trajectory correction. - previoulsly i extrapolated the header tank volume and weight from photos, and ended with a 25-30m3 ->20-25T Lox, i thought it was too much, but why not. -
  12. Starship only need 3 Raptor Vac and 3 Raptor SL (SL can be shut down at around 4500m/s) to deliver approximately : 120t (high DeltaV loss = SH come back to launch pad) or 180t (low-med DeltaV loss = SH land on a boat) or 240t (no recovery). (SH : 69MN, 215t dry weight, 3400t fuel, SLT=1.35; Starship : 105t dry weight, 1170t fuel, Twr=0.98 at staging, once in orbit 3 Raptor Vac can do all the job even fully refueled; DeltaV Starship 8700 m/s+11t fuel for landing)
  13. Starship will need heat shield tiles on 55% of its surface : Temperature 1500K just for LEO reentry. I highly doubt it will reentry direct from Lunar or Mars orbit, the velocities are another story : from 12000 m/s to 18000 m/s. (4x temperatures compared to LEO) AFAIK Starship arrival from Mars will be at Lunar Gateway (it saves around 2200 m/S DeltaV), and Lunar Starship is all white.
  14. 1. they need to move the header Lox Tank inside the main Lox tank like the header Lch4 is in the main Lch4. From a CoM point of view, the Lox header Tank at the top is a good idea, but when you consider these two small tanks are deep cryo tank designed for use 1h (leo to earth sl) or 5 months (leo or lunar to mars injection and landing) after the launch, you want both of them well insulated in the middle of Starship tanks. And there is another reason, like said before, during the final maneuver, the quick rotation will mess with fuel in the pipes (ullage/vapors), it's better to have
