  1. Not to derail the thread, but it's been a while since I last checked out KSP mods and I have to say that you've got some impressive work. I remember when I first saw your first couple of mods and have yet to be disappointed, especially now that I've seen all your work since then. Keep it up!
  2. Wow, I don't think I've ever seen a cutaway of like that for Soviet spacecrafts before. Nice find.
  3. I have never laughed so hard at a ksp picture before this. Good one Beale!
  4. That looks really impressive! You sure as hell keep surprising me, nice work.
  5. Hey Beale, about the TKS. Why not make a "built-in" adapter for the nose similar to what you did with Vega/Salyut? Just an idea I thought might help.
  6. Haha! I forgot about that movie. Moving on I found some info (not much) on the TMA spacecraft on the manufacturer's website which was surprisingly hard to navigate unless you go to the site map. http://www.energia.ru/en/iss/soyuz-tma/soyuz-tma.html Also some info on NASA's website. http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/structure/elements/soyuz/index.html#.U7XZcPm0e6A I tried going on the Russian Space Federation's website, but since I don't know much Russian anymore I couldn't navigate on there (so much for international cooperation ).
  7. I like the new design especially the crew module (or decent module on the real Soyuz TMA) since it has more of a taper than the older one which I rather like. Good work as always! Also, just out of curiosity is the new engine a single nozzle now or just a more compacted arrangement?
  8. I'd use your stockalike soyuz for reference, but I think that would work pretty well. You could always do a quick scaled drawing of them to see which looks best to you.
  9. Wouldn't it be possible to just make an alternate config so you could have one with and one without?
  10. I know the second stage engine on a Delta III and IV uses an extendable nozzle, but I don't recall any other examples at the moment.
  11. Honestly, I thought the stock-like Salyut was going to be a bit unpleasant looking, but you sure as hell pulled that off and beat my opinion down. Also, I figured I should mention that I use the Tantares all the time, especially as a orbital space station crew transfer vehicle (I think being that specific makes me qualify as a geek or an engineer... or both ). I still have yet to try the Libra or Spica due to me not updating the pack and non-researched parts.
  12. 387: Play baseball or golf with light bulbs.
  13. Wow. I've found user guides for other launch vehicles just as detailed, but nothing as impressive as this. Also, that thing is looking good, can't wait to see the final product.
  14. It's armament varied depending on the model. I know one had 10 MIRVs (I crap myself thinking about it) and another that just had a large (really excessive) fusion warhead. From my previous research, I know that the MIRVs held a lot of other thing besides the nukes like countermeasures (i.e. chaff, guidance computers, thrusters, etc.) and some may even be decoys. I couldn't find much on the second stage engine besides what I already posted and some info that isn't very useful in KSP. I'll see if I can find anything else, just don't rely on me.
