    Nice! Thx.

    These are great. I've flown your three craft examples from orbit. Since I am the second worst pilot in the world, I attach a few parachutes to land. But they are stable enough that I might actually try landing one of them without. One thing you might want to consider is a module that contains a docking collar. Or perhaps you can add it to the CMD modules. Thanks for creating these. I love them.

    [1.6.x] Space Bus

    I downloaded it. It is easy to build, and it flies great!!! I took it off. Achieved Kerbin orbit. Made a slow reentry and ran out of fuel at 30K meters, on the first flight, without knowing what I was doing! I love your artwork and textures too. Thank you for creating this.

    Mk1 Inline Cockpit Upgraded IVA (RPM)

    Excellent!!! Smart layout too! I'm downloading this. Thank you.
  5. I use Hyperedit. It's sort of a God-mode allowing you to transport your ships from launchpad into orbit. Some people considerate it a cheat, but it's a huge time saver, and especially good for testing part compatibility, such as docking ports from different mods, or to just practice docking and landing (even real astronauts have computer sims to practice with). I don't use it for anything up to present day technology. But I do use it for near-future stuff like, Hermes, Titan, and large space stations. Also, I'm playing the Science campaign and so I'm more concerned about collecting science then experience or cash. But Gabu is right. Building a space station, in space is very rewarding.
  6. Hi Gabu. I'm having a slight issue with Hermes. I seems that I cannot get the crew to transfer to the big wheel. I've docked other craft to the Hermes and can transfer crew between the docked craft and the Hermes command module without a problem. Thanks.
  7. Thanks Gabu. BTW, I made a successful flight to the Mun with Titan, landed and safely returned to Kerbal orbit. Easy-peasy. Now I have to figure out how to get my Kerbals back on the ground. Rescue Mission!
  8. I have a slight glitch. When I open the Hermes craft file in the hangar or VAB, it looks fine. But when I send it to the launch pad, or runway it appears that the access way between the CMD and the Probe section displaces forward and unattached of the Probe section. Even after I Hyperedit it into orbit: Thanks.
  9. These two models are great. I like both options. Thanks. It will be interesting to see how the Hermes performs with a MADV docked. Have you given any thought to modeling the dropship from The Martian?
  10. This is one of the best IVAs that I have seen yet. Visually, it has all the right stuff, and just as importantly for me, the ergonomics are spot on. Everything is at the perfect angle and easy to see. Beautiful work G'th. I'm going to take a closer look at it today. I must have left out some dependency cuz some of my buttons and the RPM screens aren't working. So I'll reinstall. Thank you.
  11. Hey Quonium. For VTOL taking off and landing, you might want to check out the Throttle Controlled Avionics mod, if you haven't already. It's engineering magic. Sadly, the Lander has not been right since v1.2.
  12. AND...we can actually execute the whole dirt cover in the VAB! As opposed to having to "launch" it. Very nice. BTW, considering that you've also created the Mars/Duna base and lander, you might want to create a variant with reddish dirt.
  13. Now THAT is one of the cleverest mods that I have seen yet! Great work. I'm going to give it a shot in the AM.

    Superluminal - WIP Video Update #2

    He is? That would be great.
  15. I have looked, as I am sure you have, at every image of that thing I could find and could find no indication of a hatch. The likely suspect would be that cylindrical module that extends from the center hub. It has two, 1-man Mars moon exploration units attached to the sides, and a docking port. It seems to me that if there was an airlock, that might be it. BTW, have you seen SirGabu's MADV? He was able to come up with a working elevator and the lower storage area. Aside from that, I prefer the more realistic style that you incorprorate.
