  1. How long does it take for the database to identify parts that have identified with PartMapper? For example, Vostok Continued spun off from Tantares a while ago but KerbalX doesn't recognize the new mod.

    I added a set of four River fins at the bottom of the main stages and a t-configuration of three fins for each booster to bring the CoA down as far as I could. It's actually worked and somewhat stabilized, EUREKA! Thanks for the explanation and advice!

    Ok good that I'm not completely crazy, I'll give it another try with some fins then. I did find that I had better luck reaching orbit with a steep ascent but I still had to be at weird roll angles to accomplish that. I think the issue is with the CD-HERMES more so than the ALIYANA 5 because other payloads I do on the ALIYANA 5 don't give me near the trouble.

    Anybody had any luck with using the Hermes? I mounted it on an Aliyana 5 per the manual and its incredibly unstable and flips most of the time unless I roll it to some really odd angles.
  5. I have used the Part Mapper a couple of times, I'm curious how long the parts database simply detects and lists those parts when it comes to new uploads?
  6. I put something together with Contares, it works -sorta-, I'll post the craft file and some pictures later. I can more or less get it into orbit with Mechjeb although I haven't quite tried manually yet.
  7. I'll been building a sort of Energia with Contares, although I can't seem to connect it with the Buran shuttle... what are you using for decouplers?
  8. Has anybody built a Buran/Energia?
  9. Yea I got gimbal limit but thats about how much force is applied not its range, I played with gimbal limit some but that actually make the problems worse since then gimbals couldn't compensate as well during the ascent. I also got the gimbal lock too as thats part of the standard advanced tweakables. EDIT: If anybody wants to see what I'm working with specifically this is my modification of Pak's Mk 3 orbiter with modifications to an extent based on drtedastro's instructions. I have removed the entire payload as an approximation of STS-1. I also removed the decals for simplicity. My STS-1 Orbiter
  10. Most of mine make it to orbit now, although the AdvancedTweakables button doesn't open up gimbal range though, that's my first major problem left over is I can't modify the gimbal range.
  11. Oh definitely that works, I can't wait till the profiles are part of the main build, I'm always a bit weary of the dev builds but I might give it a shot. Ok I'll look up AdvancedTweakables. 32 GB of ram and that video card, I hate you *grins* I've been tweaking things and having more and more luck, I can get it into orbit most of the time now so mostly just trying to make the process more efficient and precise at this point.
  12. Two initial questions: How did you edit the gimbal roll? TweakEverything is utterly broken for me, so wasn't sure if you had another mod that did that? How did you get the ascent profile dropdown menu?
  13. Anybody else having trouble flying this? If you're successfully launched this could you please give me some detailed instructions? EDIT: I managed to get it into orbit but definitely looking for a more detailed procedure on how others are managing it. The most trouble I had was rolling it while keeping it at the right inclination it keeps slipping and sliding on me.

    Ok wow, I'm special, I didn't realize there were craft files. *forehead smack*
