  1. Hey 

    Hope you'r ok

    long time no see your fantastic work in Ksp. Miss you. Whats about the shuttle?  Any project for now?  

    Have a nice Day 

  2. Hey Silent, 

    Are you still managing your mods and keeping them going? Miss seeing your work, would hate to see your pieces go away.

  3. Absolutely love your models - any chance you're still planning on releasing the DADV Field Science Expansion? I'm really interested in using your rover!

    I think the vintage shuttle cockpit is coming out ok... what a headache but the result always rewards you.

      I think, if it's possible, and if you want, try to make a check-list on the front of the cockpit, to make that more fun or more realistic lol ;)

      Very nice work! Hopefully it works with v1.3.1.

  5. Hi

    Im just impressed and thankful  for all of your mod. Just quick question have you any RO/RSS configs ?

      Thank you for your kind words. Unfortunately no, i haven't had the time to jump into RO/RSS.

  6. You are right @DeltaDizzy, i should add some screenshots to the OP.
  7. I am actually making a shuttle mod, not "The Shuttle" but pretty close. I almost finished the orbiter and it was the most challenging model and texture so far. You can see a photorealistic render and two in-game tests on my profile page. Just scroll down a little bit. Point by point mesh building from a few schematics, it is pretty tedious.
  8. Thank you @Abpilot! 3D modelling is a mixture of techniques and normal maps are your best friends for detailing .

      Don't know yet. Hold your horses @Blinkboy77 it will take some time until i complete this and there are many more parts to be made.
      This is just a one part test to see how the meshes and textures look inside KSP.
      Glad you like it.

      Great looking shuttle or is it the buran?

      It has 3 main engines in the back so it can't be the buran. On the other hand it is not the shuttle 100%.
       

  10. @Barar thank you for that and your kind words. I had no idea. Will correct this on the next update. Nice catch! Coming soon.... Featuring manned and unmanned rovers, scientific experiments and updated parts for the DADV ship featuring a bay with a telescopic platform for delivering the rover.
  11. Hello @THX-1138. The correct way is to have for example, the port on the HOYO in active mode (port extended) and the port on the Altair in passive mode (retracted). When you bring the ports close they pull each other but do not allow for a rigid dock (soft docking). That way you can correct any roll misalignments (be very careful as large rotations are not allowed) and when you have it right you switch the HOYO port to passive mode (retracted). Then you have a rigid connection between the two docking ports and no wobble. The semi transparent solar panels are indeed awesome, but all credit goes to @Shadowmage, since his mod TexturesUnlimited allows for that. I just had to figure out how the solar shader worked and made the texture. I have enabled the solar panels on all my mods to do that. Let me know how the docking went. Cheers.
