  1. That's only slightly more thrust than the F-1. If you want to get into really ridiculous engines, take a look at Sea Dragon. The first-stage engine is about 40x as powerful as the F-1. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_Dragon_(rocket) Here's an engine.cfg for Sea Dragon's engines in RO. https://gist.github.com/borogove/208873eb46bd3f1fa663
  2. Piloted or un? Are you using the CKAN default installation, which includes RemoteTech? If so, unmanned vessels will require power and an antenna to be flown.
  3. I have a script I use to generate RO-balanced engines (re-scaling and re-statting existing engines) for my own use, and I ran dasbin's wish list through it. You can download the .cfg file here: https://gist.github.com/borogove/208873eb46bd3f1fa663 It includes * 355MN Sea Dragon first stage kerosene engine (something like 45x the F-1's thrust) * 63MN Sea Dragon second stage hydrogen engine * 235kN Sea Dragon thrust vector control engine * 400kN "Devil-4" MMH-NTO lander engine Issues: * I haven't tweaked the plumes appropriately so the Sea Dragon plume is silly narrow, the TVCs s
  4. [quote name='sjsninetrys'] The RCS Thrust FX/plume has almost disappeared, both on the pad and in space, but the RCS is still working physics-wise.. Ive routed the problem to RO, when its removed the animation returns as normal. Tried changing the propellent and all in-game configs but no joy. Even tried a fresh KSP install with only RO installed with CKAN. - Am i missing somthing?/Anyone else getting the same? [/QUOTE] I get the same.
  5. [quote name='Starwaster']Something didn't update properly it looks like. Was this on a fresh install?[/QUOTE] No, I've added and removed a lot of stuff. I suppose I could try freshening up. UPDATE: Reinstalled KSP, re-CKANed, and it works now. Thanks.
  6. Installed Realism Overhaul via CKAN, and the game hangs on the loading screen. Tail end of the log pointing at ModuleEngines.Flameout: [code] DragCubeSystem: Creating drag cubes for part 'proceduralSRBRealFuels' (Filename: /Users/builduser/buildslave/unity/build/artifacts/MacStandalonePlayerGenerated/UnityEngineDebug.cpp Line: 56) MissingMethodException: Method not found: 'ModuleEngines.Flameout'. at RealFuels.ModuleEnginesRF.GetThrustInfo () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 at RealFuels.ModuleEnginesRF.GetInfo () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:
  7. I'm using multiple guidance units so I can have a small satellite on top of a large rocket, but when I stage the lowest guidance unit off, it often fails to give me control of the remainder of the rocket even though there's plenty of avionics on it. Sometimes control is intermittent. RemoteTech says I have a connection, map view shows I'm in range of three ground stations, but I have no control.
  8. Ugh, seriously? Y'all need Jesus to completely remove case sensitivity from config files.
  9. Never mind, solved it. It's capitalized "TechRequired", not "techRequired". All better now!
  10. Sorry if this is covered somewhere, but I'm having a hard time getting engines I'm creating to appear in the tech nodes I want them. I've tried a number of things, but long story short is, I put "techRequired = start" in both the part and its CONFIGs, and it appears in the propulsionSystems or heavierRocketry node depending on how big it is. I assume this is RealFuels being judgemental about my engines, but I'd like to be able to reliably override it and put engines where I want them. Any tips?
  11. I don't know from TestFlight, but the Vanguard engine part is unusual in that it includes a couple of small RCS-ish thrusters in addition to the engine itself. That might be confusing it.
  12. I'm thinking about implementing this as a command line program that would just generate the engine part according to your specs. Could easily support stock monoprop, biprop, and NTR, plus some basic realfuels options (kerolox, hydrolox, UDMH/NTO). You'd choose fuel type, vac thrust, and sea level or vac optimization, and it would determine size, weight, cost, etc from that and build the part with its config file. Sound useful?
