    Nah man, unrelated to that.

    Many report this bug on 1.12, and many hit their head against the wall trying to understand what it is.

    Fact is, the bug occurs when you timewarp or / and hit M to get in and out of the map, which occassionally gets the bug, requiring game restart.
    no one knows how to fix it yet, and I bet a mod will have to come out for it because squad is rest in pieces

    I feel you man.

    Did y'all ever find a fix for this?

    After a bit of research on the Titan IIIB, I've noticed that the texture of the Titan IIIB Agena adapter is a bit off, so if it's not too much to ask, I was wondering if it could be updated?

     

    An image of what I'm talking about:

    Honestly I can't make out much of what you're refering to here. Everything I see in this pic is in game and accurate. There's the KH8-Agena conical adapter, and then theres a new structural part that was just added that would go in between the KH8/Agena Adapter and the Titan 2/3 Second Stage (without the titan 3 extension as a toggleable raceway is built into the new structural adapter)

  3. I've been making progress on cleaning up a lot of the textures for Titan. I did most of the legwork the last time I touched up the titan textures (several months ago) but I am finishing off some things I didn't get around to last time (especially the UA120 motors and titan IV):

    I also redid the Titan 23G/IIIB structural piece and 23G second stage texture:

    I’m proud of how the 23G adapter  turned out and I think it really goes well with the new 23G second stage texture. Always happy to do stuff for 23G as it’s one of the most underrated/coolest Titans imo.

    Is the Herakles planned to receive the same treatment? Some pieces, especially the upper stage engine mount, are more or less at the same level of the old Saturn parts or maybe a little better

    I recently revamped LDC about a week ago or so. Should be in the master branch. They’re pretty compatible with the newer stuff now.

    I don’t mean to sound impatient or whatever, but I’m wondering if those service module texture variants that were teased the other day have hit GitHub yet. No worries if they aren’t ready yet, I’m just wondering.

    Not yet. Will be figuring this out sometime over the next few days.

    Did the ASTP spacecraft carry the S-band antenna? I know Apollo 7 and Skylab spacecraft didn’t.

    Now that you mention it probably not.

    May not be an exact docking module, but still looks great.

    There is a possibility that there will be more parts for Apollo-Soyuz Test Project in the future :sticktongue:

    In other news: service module variants! I have all the textures completed but the reason they are not released yet is because I am going to figure out if there is a way to combine two variants per texture sheet since the service module texture is a massive 2K sheet. So far there are four variants:

    Fictional white Apollo:

    Apollo 7:

    Skylab Apollo:

    The last variant (which is not directly seen here) is the ASTP Apollo. It is very similar to the Skylab variant. The CM is the default bare metal and the service module is the same as Skylab's except the SIM bay cover has no paint on it, unlike Skylab's. Not sure when these will get in game but probably in the near future. In the mean time, I made small modifications/fixes to the current SM texture. A few errors have been fixed and the DDS compression on the SM might appear to be less severe/noticable.

    New reflective CM, lookin' EPIC. 

    PS: @CobaltWolfthe red CM nose/chute mount/heatshield is kinda pointless since its for the boiler plate. 

     

    Firstly, the boilerplate texture is mainly intended to just be a cool paint variant for the CM since I always liked the style. Technically, that type of boilerplate was never even flown on a Saturn, it was dropped from a helicopter (iirc). The boiler plates that flown on Saturn I were painted white.

    Secondly, when you do Saturn I boilerplates you will likely need to construct the full Apollo (heat shield and all). This is because the boilerplate CM’s weighed around the same as the actual CM. While they weren’t proper CM’s and often had ballast to increase the weight, we don’t have any plans to add in any proper boilerplate specific parts for the CM (there will be a boilerplate SM for Pegasus) so the boilerplate stuff *does* include heat shields and such.

    Centaur-Derived MOL and the Final Flight of Gemini

    Getngrf.png

    [Disclaimer: Fictional Story]

    With eight manned Gemini missions planned in total, flight planners looked hard for a feat to end the program on a high note. Every flight so far had surpassed the one before it, and Gemini had proven new feats such as EVA, rendezvous and docking, and orbital satellite repair. Taking inspiration from the Air Force's abandoned Manned Orbiting Laboratory, NASA soon drew up plans to convert a Centaur-D rocket stage into an orbital dry workshop which could be used by the crew of a Gemini flight to test the limits of all the program's new techniques over the period of one month in space, over twice the length of the previous endurance record. In addition to perfecting the procedures which would be required for upcoming Apollo flights, Gemini 10 MOL would provide valuable physiological data on the effects of long-term spaceflight and, for the military, offer an opportunity to demonstrate the feasibility of man-controlled orbital reconnaissance with a plausible cover story. The mass of the new orbital outpost once again required the hardy but aging Saturn I to launch it to orbit; the improved Saturn-IB was still nearly a year away from operational status and the Air Force was unable to allocate a Titan-IIIC away from the many military payloads to be launched in 1966 and 1967. Saturn-Centaur serial number SA-8 was chosen as the launch vehicle, and its S-V third stage was flown to MSFC for conversion to MOL. The two RL-10 engines were removed, the oxygen tank refitted as a pressurized equipment section, and the LH2 tank built into a two-story living compartment and workshop. Although primitive compared to the later Skylab workshop, MOL offered its crew much more comfort than their cramped spacecraft. Work on the station was completed by March 1966, and it was soon flown to the Cape and readied for a late summer launch.

    Oh yeah, in other news I also flew AS-203 or something, but that's boring:

    Love this idea
