  1. What's this? A Von Braun centrifuge perhaps? Will come in 2 variants: Deployable and in modular segments for orbital construction.
  2. Updated Dev Build Of Notantares LV - Includes new 5.625m engine mount, third stage fuel tank, and interstage! I finished the 5.625m engine mount: I also made a new short 5.625m liquid fuel tank for the 3rd stage, and remade the 5.625m interstage to fit the new engine mount. It's all available in the above link to the dev build - Feedback is appreciated!
  3. Here's a link to the WIP dev build of NotantaresLV - it currently includes the nuclear RO-31 engine, a 5.625m tank, a 5.625m to 3.75m adapter tank, a 3.75m engine mounting plate, and 3.75m and 5.625m interstages: I also have begun work on the regular UR-700 second stage: And the 5.625m engine mounting plate for the UR-700A third stage:
  4. So, I finished the interstage! Now I can begin work on the rocket's 3rd stage!
  5. Do you have Retractable Lifting Surface installed? It's a dependency. Currently, my priorities are as follows: Finish the UR-700 and UR-700A (Sometime in mid-to-late May), start and finish an LK-700 (Late May to mid-to-late June), and revamp the Big Soyuz parts (Late June to mid July). However, I will definitely find time in there to make an IVA! Great idea! It sounds like something I could throw together in about a week -- the IVA would take longer, but I might be able to release something like that later this month!
  6. Big Soyuz is compatible with 1.3.1. However, NotantaresLV has two tanks that have stock texture switching built-in. If you're using 1.3.1, they will work fine, they just won't have any texture switching. Sorry, there was a problem in the config I didn't spot during testing - the model path led to a different folder (The one the older version of the paraglider was in) than the one the new paraglider was in. Here's the new, working version: Note: The paraglider is still very unstable, and must be flown gently; Use 'Q' and 'E' to roll slightly, and the lift will simply make you turn. Don't pull up too hard, because it stalls easily.
  7. It looks like a perfectly ordinary Angara 1.2 launch... but what's inside the fairing?

    What did you do in KSP today?

  9. STATUS UPDATE: Oh, also, I finally uploaded those extra Notantares Station Parts inflatable habs that I posted pictures of back in December but never released to Github. So, here you go, you now have two extra inflatable habs while I continue work on the UR-700 and UR-700A! ------ I also completely revamped the OP, so it's less cluttered and easier to navigate! I also added all my mods to Spacedock!
  10. STATUS UPDATE: Notantares Space Industries Presents... V 1.1 "Totally Accurate Angara Simulator! (TAAS)" I spent the better part of 5 hours this morning and 2 hours this evening to get all this work done -- But you guys don't have to concern yourselves with that, just enjoy the update! V 1.1 on Github So, inside the spoiler is a quick run-down of all the changes I made (The update will break existing craft, so you have been warned!). BTW, I am still making progress on the UR-700 and UR-700A parts -- here's a quick screenshot of the WIP interstage for the 2nd (Or is it 3rd? ) stage: It will include built-in retro motors!
  11. STATUS UPDATE: 7 nuclear engines with 100 kN of thrust each? What kind of monstrosity is this!? Many thanks to @Beale for the beautiful plume he allowed me to steal use! Anybody order a small star? Interstages, fairings, and the third (Or fourth, depending on how you look at it) stage will be coming soon! Perhaps one day I shall make a Kerbal Konstructs launch facility for this behemoth of a rocket... who knows?
  12. STATUS UPDATE: Progress on the upper stage fuel tanks...again? Well, the older tanks were plain and boring and actually lower res than my 3.75m fuel tanks! So I decided to redo them. This is basically the entire fuel tank segment of the UR-700A second stage: "...We're a happy family..." Also, work starting on the engine mounting plate for the second stage, so you can attach 7 of the RO-31 engines: EDIT: Also, although I still have to do additional testing, I believe that Notantares remains functional in 1.4.1. Also also, Happy St. Patrick's Day.
  13. Will you have enough space in your signature for this when it comes to release?
