  1. I need to do something about my launch vehicle. I've had to adjust the engine angles for each mission to keep the torque under control, and it's gotten tedious. I thought I had it right for STS-3, but I can't seem to get it after a half-dozen launch attempts - the shuttle keeps tumbling at high altitude as the booster fuel runs low. I've been playing with the Throttle Controlled Avionics mod, but it's pretty complicated. I also experimented with putting an S-shaped adapter to move the engines more towards the centerline and reduce the thrust offset angle, but that looked ridiculous. I think I'm gonna switch to a symmetrical layout.

    The new ones look cool.

    Heat 4, such excite! I'm nervous about my matchup though...

    I'm not sure how best to go about this, but it's hilarious.
  8. I've been busy running my own challenge, and family stuff. But I'm still in the shuttle program, it's just been delayed a bit.

    DOMA Arigato, Duna!

    You could use an autonomous ghost ship for the DRO, as long as it meets the other requirements. But a bunch of dead kerbals won't get you to Rank 4.

    DOMA Arigato, Duna!

    Any science gained from an InSight-eligible craft would count. DOMA has lots of other stuff going on though, so that might complicate your bookkeeping.
  12. Yeah, I figured that out later; that screenshot is a couple months old. I should probably update the text.

    Lol, no rush. I've been keeping an eye on your mission thread, good stuff.

    Badges, get your badges! Well, no one has earned Rank 4... yet. But it's waiting for you.
  15. I've been using this mod for my Energia-type shuttle launch vehicle, along with a bunch of other NF parts. I have LH engines on the core and LF engines on the side boosters. I also made this comparison slideshow to demonstrate the differences between engine types:
