  1. Meanwhile, Tory is still looking for his engines...
  2. Well, I don't think they have the room...
  3. Well, given that docking with multiple docking ports simultaneously is possible, it'd make sense that multi-grabbing would work too (or maybe it doesn't, I'm unfamiliar with the technical details of how klaw grabbing works and whether it's at all similar to docking).
  4. kurtjmac. Specifically, this video: I originally watched his channel for his Minecraft Far Lands or Bust series, but when I started watching his KSP series, I was totally hooked. I've never been able to shake the addiction, and frankly, I don't want to
  5. This isn't S20's nosecone as it has no flap aerocovers. It appears to be a pathfinder for a payload bay:
  6. Wasn't that talking about a flame diverter? They may just make up for the lack of a flame diverter with a massive water deluge.
  7. Dragon relocating to a different port on the ISS ahead of the Starliner OFT-2 flight.
  8. They found some issues with it before release that prevented them from shipping it with the main update. The original plan was to release it in the 1.12.1 update but that was a hotfix for a particularly nasty bug, so we'll probably see it in 1.12.2.
  9. This bit is probably just going to be topping off the tower, probably with a roof and lightning rod. The tower's structure is close to complete, but there's still a lot to add for it to actually function as a launch tower. Arms for fuelling the vehicle (and catching the booster in the future) and wiring still need to be installed.
  10. I just got another forum rules popup. Has anything changed? I couldn't see anything major in a quick scroll through.
  11. Speaking of heatshield: A tiled flap (!) Edit: ninja'd by @tater again
  12. Undoubtedly they've run flight simulations with the full heatshield and know how to tune the flight control software to compensate for the offset mass. The heatshield probably isn't adding that much mass anyway - it's likely only a few tons. With its high gimbal range, a single Raptor should be able to deal with that. It'll be no problem for three.
  13. Yeah, the chomper is just a name for the payload bay in its last known configuration. Should they change it to something more hatch-like, it's not a chomper anymore.
