  1. I'm playing in 1.10, and when I try to land on Armstrong I begin clipping through the surface then die. I am playing with the 2.5x rescale
  2. Has anybody solved the issue where the GAP contracts under the "All" tab cannot be accepted or declined? they're basically just grayed out. Upon starting a new 1.8.1 save, I am able to accept the prototype contracts, but I can't even accept the glider contract. I'm playing with Realism Overhaul, and no other contract packs. I'm also not seeing the KSC Airlines contracts.
  3. Does anybody know where I can find the config definition for Peenemunde in the launch_sites config? I remember it was there at one point, and I see some videos where that's an option.
  4. Thanks for the heads up! hot staging seems to be the way to go. The parts rescaled by 2.0 looked a bit out of place. I had a the Russian knock-off as a frame of reference. I did try version 0.19.1 but the the nodes were completely off from where they were in 0.19. I scaled up the A-10 fairing slightly to close the gaps since I play with FAR, it's voxel model should consider that part an enclosed hull.
  5. Quick question: I'm playing my 1.6.1 Realism Overhaul installation. By what values should I set the @rescaleFactor for the A-9 parts? The winged fairing and ramjet aren't scaled. On another note, I'm wondering what's up with the gaps in the A-10 top fairing? Is that for wings?
  6. Is it at all possible to see a backport to 1.6.1, or does it rely on new features in release 1.7? I'm sure lots of people playing Realism Overhaul would love to use this. Also, is it within the capabilities of plugins to append the Icon_Hidden tag to the whole part model itself? This way, with the module applied to something like Procedural Parts for example, you can make arbitrary cavities in your ships.
  7. NASA reusing the proven Skylab design atop this Orion, with integrated Apollo Command Module (which fits *perfectly* atop the Gemini retro module) You really come to realize that chemical rocketry is like playing with foam kid's toys after riding 6000 tons to space with atomic bombs. 16 Raptors are used to bring it down.
  8. Does anybody know how to manipulate the animation speed, min pulse time, and max pulse time in the cfg file to get more realistic rates?
  9. I'm trying to use this mod in Realism Overhaul since it just got updated. What's the rescale factor to bring the size back to real size, and to bring thrust back to real world thrust? I'll try to get the config into the RO repo for future use.
  10. can you post screenshots of the interface when building with them?
  11. Buckle up, anatomically correct average 180cm person, there's no need to fall off when flying on Mars! A single engine from the Curiosity rover's skycrane used here propels a much lighter astronaut between sites of interest and a mothership rover with hydrazine. Used to same effect here, on a wider but smaller rover that can carry out an extended mission with a NASA SAFE reactor from Realism Overhaul providing 100kW and radiation poisoning. Might ferry around fuel as well. It's just over 50 tons, so it's like going on a martian safari and taking a nuclear Tiger I tank.
  12. If you download Kerbalism, its chemical processing plant part has "hydrazine production" which make monopropellant. If you go into the default.cfg the appropriate Real Fuels variables are in the comments for the corresponding section (except for hydrogen peroxide, you can just leave that as oxidizer).
  13. Playing with Realism Overhaul and about to set off for the Moon. This is not going to be a quick visit but rather a series of long-term missions. Surface infrastructure will need an element that ferries supplies, astronauts, and fuel between landing craft, habitats, geological points of interest, and ISRU mining facilities. This rover features a longitudinal and radial suspension system for *high* speed travel, accommodation for four human beings, and fuel tank for ascent vehicles. It lands packed up, the wheels swing down and the astronauts secure them with suspension struts. Pictur
  14. Each wheel connected to a free-moving hub, and attached to the body by struts which act like springs. Allows high speeds despite patches of terrain clipping with each other.
