  1. Good evening Kerbonauts: Well, a little distraction from my stock russians rockets, i did the Delta IV heavy. Only stock parts are used and it has the same flightprofil like the real one. It can lift 23 tons to LKO (with some spare fuel for deorbiting the second stage) and without the stock payloadfairings, even 25 to 26 tons are possible or slightly more, depending on the flightprofil. features: -real look-a-like. same stages and look like the real one, even the second stage is very accurate in the look -corebooster engines needs to be throttled down, archived with actiongroup and partclipping -stock fairings -subassambly ready update: 22.july - added the Orion spacecraft as a payload for teh delta IV heavy, stockfairings and LES included Warning: because of partclipping of engines is this stock craft not compatible with the hotrockets mod. sry guys Download: -> [stock] Delta IV heavy pack<- important flight instructions: -Actiongroup 1 is used for the throttling of the corebooster engine. - t+ 1m20s ( one minute and twenty seconds) after launch, press 1 to throttle down corebooster engine -after seperation of sideboosters, press 1 again for full throttle of corebooster -shortly after seperation of sideboosters, you can stage for releasing the payloadfairings -second stage engine is only a single LV-T30, keep this in mind for planing orbit insertion - burntime will be very long with a 20+tons payload, attitudecontroll with reactionwheel and very big battery for the Orion: -same flightprofil as the Delta IV heavy with other payloads -Actriongroup 2 for Solarpanels and Antennas Abort sequence: Abort -> 0 -> 9 -> party pictures: -launch with 23tons testpayload the rocket is subassamly ready, but you can just build your payload on top of the decoupler. For teh stockfairing: just take the single one and go for 3x symetry. But don't forget the struts and the stageorder. pictures of the Delta IV heavy and the Orion spacecraft: big thanks to Giggleplex777 for helping me with the second stage !

    working on the MiG but sadly not much time for KSP during the last months .... sorry for the long delay
  3. Well, finaly got the time (and motiviation) to do my own full thread of my crafts instead of all the different single ones. This is the place, where i will collect my craftfiles for sharing with the community Some of them are bound to my heart, like my Soyuz or Proton. Developed over years ... If you want more picture, you can find them on the KerbalX site. just follow the downlaod button Big thank you to many of you, who helped me over the years with inspiration, tricks, debugging and more. (like Mulbin, Rune, sgt_flyer, and many more) i hope you can enjoy them as much as i do. Feel free to ask anything or even use it as inspiration Planes: X-01 a liltle scout plane with a droptank for increased range. -> download <- X-01B based on the X-01, added a science module to the streched fuselage, there is a narrowband scaner hidden in the nose! -> download <- LazTec Businessjet little passengerplane -> download <- F-18 Hornet Afterbruner inclusive -> Download <- Rockets: Orion - EFT 1 v2.0 good old Orion, now with realistic RCS. tips for launching: first of all, throttle down the Delta IV core with Actiongroup 2 at 1min in flight. Throttle up again after booster seperation. short before MECO, go trough the decoupling of the Capsule cover and second stage fairing. Then proced as usual. The Delta IV is kinda overengeeniered ... you can go to the Mun with good flyingskills -> Download <- Zenit 3 with Intelsat 27 Yeah, the ukrainian Zenit rocket with the Blok D upper stage, to put a civil communication sat into GEO Inspired by the real world mission (which sadly failed) tips for launching: After MECO, stage first to separate the first stage and ignite the verniers. 2 seconds later stage again to ignite secondstage main engine. Decouple fairings at 40km altitude or above. Aim for a GEO orbit of 2.863 km and orbital periode of 6 hours. Press 1 to deploy Antennas and Solarpanels. Zenit itself is designed to lift roughly 12 tons to LKO. -> download <- Proton | Blok D with 3 Glonass-M Inspired by the real Glonass network, this Proton carries three sats to orbit like in the real world. tips for launching: when separating the third second and third stage, wait 2 seconds and stage again to ignite the third stage main engine and auto decouple fairings. Use the Blok D upper stage to reach the desired orbit. This rocket is intend to reach a circular 1.581,7 Km orbit with an orbital periode of 3 hours. Manualy decouple a single sat from the main carrierbus. Press 1 to deploy Solarpanels. Proton is designed to lift roughly 22 tons to LKO. -> download <- Energia M | Blok D with 6 Glonass-M Getting many sats into the same orbit can be a difficult work ... so it's time for the heavy workhorse! This Energia M, a smaller version of the famous Energia rocket, carries 6 Glonass-M sats to orbit. tips for launching: Decouple fairings at 40km altitude or above. Use the corestage to get to the apogee of 1.581,7 Km. There you can use the Blok D to finish the transferorbit. Manualy decouple a single sat from the main carrierbus. Press 1 to deploy Solarpanels. Energia M is designed to lift roughly 45 tons to LKO. -> download <-
  4. or use KER. You can see the TWR and dV which is hepful. espacily when you choose the right celestial body for calculations and turn on/off atmospheric mode.

    big update ! i added my F-18 Hornet and three rockets. Zenit 3 with Intelsat 27, Proton with three Glonass sats and my Energia M with six Glonass sats

    Work-in-Progress [WIP] Design Thread

    putting a Glonass Network in orbit can be a tedious task, when you have to launch the sats as single or triple launch. So i got the first payload stack for my Energia M ... 6 Glonass-M satelites now i only need 4 or 5 rockets to install a network around Kerbin (well not a realistic one ofcourse. Real glonass has up to 10 sats on one orbital plane ... )

    three Glonass-M riding on top of the Proton third stage and a Blok-D to Orbit.

    (1.1.x) Build a Kerbal scaled ISS

    @sgt_flyer talked with Das_Valdez, the amazing twitch KSP streamer. He LOVES the idea of using the 10m heatshild for interstage fun (like on big Soyuz or Proton) well done guys, well done ! one of the most amazing little fashion tricks i have learned.

    now i'm happy with my Proton rocket. Still, not perfect but hey this is KSP now i only need to fix the wobble in my Soyuz and all my russian rockets are good to go, Fregat, BloK D and KVRB included...

    looks awesome with the payload on top

    (1.1.x) Build a Kerbal scaled ISS

    sweet Soyuz i could say "burning hot" did a comparision of my Proton with a real life blueprint. yes, secondstage is way to short. With an extra small tank and some "enginehousing", it will be perfect for my taste

    (1.1.x) Build a Kerbal scaled ISS

    yeah my mistake, i tried to load it as a normal .craft , works like a charm as subassambly And i finished my Proton, so far. still need to compare it to the real deal. (have the feeling that my second stage is now 1m to short) And have to look at the TWR. But it can lift 22,5 tons to LKO. Only 152 Parts on launchpod and solid like a rock

    (1.1.x) Build a Kerbal scaled ISS

    yeah, i noticed the coliderbehavior ... need to figure out a good way to hide a decoupler somwhere ... hrm, looking at the size of my proton i think i have to slightly enlarge the second stage .. well, not today. time for bed. but thanks for new ideas

    (1.1.x) Build a Kerbal scaled ISS

    okay @sgt_flyer some things about the Proton: - the custom launchpad is amazing - i'm going to borrow the 1st/2nd stage gridfairing for my Proton. (using a 10m heatshild is such a genius idea! ) - staging is messed up - i slightly had the feeling, that your Proton is overengineered and slightly to long. but you are building a kerbal sized ISS ... so size have to be different overall a very nice rocket !

    thanks a lot ! i just wanted to see how you solved the seperation between first and second stage

    can i get a downlaod for the proton please? *makes puppyeyes*

    Put an alternator on the RAPIER!

    if i discover, that i need more EC and the engines are not generating EC ... then i add batteries, RTG's or solarpanels to my design. (don't forget that surface attachable bats are physicles, no additional weight !) besides of potential problems just within the game and coding, i think it's a balance feature. it would be to easy if every engine has the same "toys"

    speaking of ... i added my Orion EFT 1 now totaly forgot, that it was already 1.1 ready ... time to do the finaly touchs on my russian stuff.
