  1. On the topic of small labs, Bluedog Design Bureau has a 1.25 lab (Mercury - Agena lab) and 1.5/1.875 labs (M.O.L. and Gemini Modular station parts) if one interested in those profiles.
  2. I think that bases/landers based off the LEM and the Apollo Applications Project would come before Jamestown.
  3. So, are those 1.875m station parts that you were mocking up in the dev thread on a roadmap, or have they been shelved for now?
  4. It's definitely a treat to see another pass on MOL after the initial revamp with Titan. The blue gemini service module looks rad.
  5. I think stockalike station parts and Habtech 2 would give you everything you need for those stations (except the full size inflatable hab on Discovery).
  6. I remember that on the old CyroEngines, the Etna re-scaled from 3.75 from 3.125 was actually was pretty close to expected thrust from the standard scaling heuristic. I've thought about making a patch that updates the size and thrust of various Restock/CyroEngines engines to match closer to their visual equivalent, but I don't know how to scale the engine weight to compensate for the changed thrust.
  7. The joke is that Cobalt is on record that Delta IV isn't happening, and that it's already possible to kitbash a good looking Delta IV with Cyro Engines and Restock.
  8. New engines look great for NFLV! Are the old (methalox) engines getting moved to Cyroengines, or just cut for now?
  9. The x0.64 heuristic for diameter gives us 2.9m. Are you rounding up to 3.125m, or doing something else? Either way, it'll fun to pair this with a kit-bashed Vulcan using Nertea's metholox engines.
  10. Use Friznit's guide: https://github.com/friznit/Unofficial-BDB-Wiki/wiki/Shuttle-Derived-Launchers
  11. Knes is a part mod, so yes. Knes also follows the quarter-thrust balance heuristic for 2.5x, so Knes rockets should deliver similar payloads to their real world counterparts (with mass also scaled of course.)
  12. I think that it's a bit early in the mod's lifecycle to be asking for craft files, since there may not have been balance passes.
  13. It has RO configs, so the parts work as expected in stock/2.5x. They're a great complement for BDB, and a Saturn 1B or Titan 3 will carry them nicely. We could use a patch for Cyroengines, so the cyro AJ-10 doesn't use LF.
  14. The new capsule looks beautiful! I especially love the detailed service module. I think this will pair well with Nertera's station parts, especially the 1.875 ones coming down the pipeline.
  15. Gotcha. I think that the Blue streak parts would enable the ETS Europa 1 & 2, and it'd be easy to cobble something for the 2-HE using BDB, cyroengine, KNES and ISRO parts.
  16. Do you plan to just clean up the historical parts, or are you thinking about making the early ETS Europa parts as well? You'd probably only need a couple extra, since most of the second/third stage parts are handled by Knes. The 1.875m Tank and angled mount for the RZ.2s would probably be enough.
  17. Are you using LFO, or using Cyro-engines/Cyro-tanks to do a LH2 build?
  18. The new Angena docking port just blows my mind. It definitely looks like the most detailed part in the mod so far. I think almost everyone would have been happy just to see the exterior texture redone, but the accurate internal truss is something else!
  19. You have to tweakscale the SLS parts to 6.25m. There's a five engine engine plate for it. Friznit has a wiki page for Redirect builds: https://github.com/friznit/Unofficial-BDB-Wiki/wiki/Shuttle-Derived-Launchers
