  1. It's been quiet the last weeks. Any new stuff to share, @Raptor9?
  2. I wish @Raptor9 would update his Ranger with the new SRBs but he stated multiple times he wanted to keep it vanilla. Would be interesting though, if different boosters would differentiate the Thunder 3 and Thunder 4 more like their real life analogues.
  3. I found what looks like a small mistake what turns into a big clusterbuck. The verniers on the LITE upper stage seem to have their dorsal/ventral and port/starbord arguments reversed. That's what prevented me, and maybe a few more, from succesfully translating during docking maneuvers.
  4. Guys, can you imagine seeing @Raptor9's rockets being launched in KSP2? That's gonna give me some major NSFW.
  5. @Raptor9 , can you make this?
  6. So, @Raptor9, how's your first impression of the new DLC? Did you already make your F-14 analogue swing-wing capable? :D
  7. Would it be too much of an impact on performance if you use 4 Swivels and Reliants each? Just asking because the S-IB had 4 of the outboard engines mounted on gimbals.
  8. You should consider adding that information on the KerbalX site and/or M3V section in your opening post. People might get confused. Because roughly 1,900m/s i dicated dV is nowhere near the actual dV.
  9. Windjammer question: Is there a way around the manual fuel transitioning between the EV-2L(s) and the propellant kits? The heat shields are preventing direct fuel flow towards the poodles.
  10. Yeah, right, totally forgot you sometimes actually like to play the game itself to advance further in your career. The spoiled child that I am, I sometimes forget. Have fun then. Ps: I haven't even send Kerbals to Duna yet, I was just curious.
  11. So, what's coming next? Couldn't find any info on any projects in the pipeline. Maybe a series of more potent SSTOs?
  12. Now I can finally put the Badger on Minmus. After downloading the whole catalogue again. (Better safe than sorry.^^)
  13. I did a few more test runs and the only way to prevent the structural failure is checking umbreakable joints the cheat menu. I even limited g loads to 2g and less. I should mention that the fairing around the RE-J10 needs to be rebuilt everytime I move certain parts around, just like the struts were making problems with subassemblies.
  14. I took the IV-2A with NITE Thrust Assist Pack on a Titan 3 main stage. Thrust is sufficient to get into LKO. As I said, it happens everytime the Boosters are seperated using MechJeb ascent guidance with auto staging. I will try manual staging tomorrow to see if that causes the fps and physics stuttering.
  15. For whatever reason I keep getting structural failure on my Titans between the S3-7200 and the fairing (the first, covering the RE-J10), all on the main propulsion stage, around 1 minute into flight. Only mod used is MechJeb2, but he's set to not fly it like a fighter jet. Any idea? Edit: Double-checked it, it happens when the boosters are separated from the main stage. Looks like there is some frame drop, causing the physics to "catch up", thus exceeding craft integrity beyond structural limits.
