  1. IIRC it was going to launch from SLS's mobile launch platform, crazy stuff!
  2. Red-Orb 1 - 2 February 2024 Mission by @Maria Sirona Reb-Orb 1 is a trio of satellites built by Orbital Orb intended as a purpose-built relay network for landers on the surface of mars. Each satellite is placed in a 30° geosynchronous orbit 120° apart from each other. These satellites aim to enable constant coverage for all operational landers currently on the red planet. The powerful antennas also allow higher data transfers to Earth, maximising the amount of science possible for each mission. Compared to the current Mars relay network, Red Orb-1 is much simpler in design and easier to operate. Red Orb-1 totalled a mission cost of $622.1 million and launched 2 February 2024 at 1:41 UTC from ELA-3 in Kourou, French Guiana. Launch: Mars Arrival: Kinetic Orbital Bombardment Systems mission coming soon!
  3. Hey all, given that its been a while and that the design of Kratos has changed vastly, I've decided to create a new thread which is more refined than this one. Don't go thinking that the concept or idea has changed! This is simply a move so I can get things more on track and in a way that is more refined and well crafted than before Here's a link
  4. Kratos "Don't ever let anyone tell you you can't do anything" -Tim Peake, Astronaut In 1988, ESA devised a plan to completely rebrand the agency, with the hopes of taking the agency from a less known counterpart of NASA, to a mighty force of equal status and prestige. 3 goals were set in place to guide the project: 1. Completely rebrand the agency, placing public involvement, promotion of upcoming missions, and science at the forefront of the agency. Redesign branding to be more contemporary in order to communicate the new modern and futuristic mindset of ESA. The main changes include the Kratos logo itself, and a focus on primarily white and blue. 2. Design a simpler, more cost effective and efficient launch vehicle to replace the aging the design of the Ariane 3, now slated for retirement in early 1992. Alongside this, design a new pad and other necessary launch infrastructure to streamline production. The newest ESA member Iceland will create a production and launch site in the area of Hóll in North East Iceland for high inclination orbits and increased launch cadence (Location seen below). The UK will provide a optional third stage named Loki for high energy missions. 3. Awaken the curiosity and excitement of the European people about space much like the Apollo program, and create a passion around space exploration to inspire new generations. In order to reflect the new mindset and aspirations of ESA, a new motto has been created. Dream Great Things. Full Details on launcher and booking below: Mission List:
  5. How is it I request a thread to be closed?
  6. Hey! I've been playing around with this and it seems really interesting, I was wondering if there was a way to change the colour of the orbit lines?
  7. Hi! I've never tried this out before and I'm really interested in it and I was wondering if it worked in 2.5x KSRSS?
  8. Yeah I've tried these things, I guess I'll just keep trying to find a fix for it, thanks anyway
  9. Sorry for any confusion, by changing the max thrust I mean I'm going into the actual .cfg file and changing the max thrust (as you can see highlighted here)
  10. I don't know if its an issue with this mod but I'm trying to change the maxthrust of the zebulon engine and it isn't working?
  11. I'm not entirely sure how to install it lol Don't worry I figured it out lol
  12. I noticed an issue, the srb's don't seem to have a plume? Not sure if its something to do with this mod or another but just wanted to bring it up
  13. These parts look truly stunning, and I've only done the launch! I'll post pictures of the orion meet-up and landing at some point, this is just too good
  14. Incredible! Will be posting some screenshots if you're ok with it
  15. Alright so redesigning Kratos for upcoming launches has had its...issues Having such a large hydrolox first stage like the proton doesn't work very well so it can't even get to orbit So should I either make a more Ariane 5/6 style launcher with SRBs and only one or two core engines OR Soyuz style launcher with tapering first stage + SRBs I will put a poll up
  16. Love the mission! Thought I might add, it would be cool if one of the shuttles had something separating it from the rest like discovery's teardrop
