    A mod containing 100000000x scale earth pfft i'd like someone get to LEO in stock with that
  6. Google Picture War RELOADED

  7. Deadly reentry and reusability

    I would say a re-entry burn i find that these equations work best: mR = m0/m1 RS = V*mR+(24*4.5) Rv = 500 In this case: m0 = mass at launch m1 = mass at stage separation 24*4.5 works and i dont know why it is most likley because this is what i wait before starting the burn Rv = re-entry burn end speed (500 works with the 4.5) this is what i am using for my kOS scripts
  8. so ive been thinking recently (as allways), about doing a mission report dedecated to the history of spaceX, could anyone give me feedback on the idea 

    may not be done until later next week as ill have some stuff to do (mainly boostback and re-entry calculations)

  11. [1.3.1] Launchers Pack - SpaceX Pack V.5 (Released August 25)

    you're welcome i was also creating configs for this for myself (the way i found the site was through the FH launch)
  12. What did you do in KSP today?

    Any chance i could look into the script as thats exactly what i am trying to do in RSS yet i havent found any equations for it anywhere, or just list a source also you can directly call true anomaly from kOS: https://ksp-kos.github.io/KOS/structures/orbits/orbit.html?highlight=true anomaly
  13. Failure is not an option - these words, the most famous quote from Gene Kranz, one of NASA's first Flight Director and probably the most famous Flight Director to ever live... January 31st 1967. "Spaceflight is terribly unforgiving, of perelesness, incapacity for neglect, I don't know what the Thompson committee will find as the cause of this accident. But i know what i find, we were the cause: the simulators weren't ready, our software in mission control didn't function. Procedures weren't complete nothing we did had any shelf life and no one stood up and said stop. Now from this day forward, mission control will be known by two words: tough and competent, tough meaning we will never again shirk from our responsibility because we are forever accountable for what we do or what we fail to do. Competent, we will never take anything for granted - we will never stop learning - when you leave here today you will write these two words on your blackboard, tough and competent and they will never be erased. They will serve as a constant reminder to the sacrificial of Grissom, White and Chaffee. That's all" - Gene Kranz Flight: Plane Crew: Jebediah Result: The plane took flight after Jebediah accidently took the gear down, as it couldnt take off it was recovered RP-0 you may want to fix the first flight objectives! anyways thats it for now, a very humerous start to the program with a switch only not a rocket or an engine, a switch and some wheels!
  14. [1.3.1] Launchers Pack - SpaceX Pack V.5 (Released August 25)

    SoonTM currently in testing, but soonTM i will release my aproximation of an RTLS also @ReventonHawx, this may be useful as it includes the masses and stuff
