  1. How can I install the mod I'm using version 1.4.4 of the game and the mod but when I open the game the only two items it carries are the Rover and the launch tower.
  2. The Saturn L1-N3V is a rocket that is a combination of a Saturn V and N1-L3 (hence the name). It's the first of what I call, "Combined Rockets", where I take parts of one rocket and combine them with parts of another rocket. The Saturn N1-L3V was created when someone thought: I wonder what would happen if i combined a Saturn V and N1?. This rocket consists of a Saturn V first stage, N1 Block B second stage, S-IVB third stage, a Blok D lander and munar orbit insertion stage, and a Apollo CSM and LK Lander. Images of the rocket in action are below: Saturn N1-L3V on the launchpad
  3. A replica that I've been working on for over 3 years now, the title and images pretty much explain themselves. 3 years of working on this project on and off due to frustrations with the craft and a little thing called "life", it is ready to be released, and at an appropriate time, too. Since I'm sure no one wants to hear me ramble on, lets get to it.

  4. Today I was reading "Voyage," and it mentioned using a "Saturn V-B" rocket. After doing some research I found out it was a real (cancelled) rocket! Does anybody know some information on it? Diagrams and pictures would be much appreciated.
  5. The journey to the Moon would take a few days and on July 20th, 1969, the LEM would safely touch down. I decided to do a Saturn style Eve mission, actually sending a Saturn V Replica to the surface of Eve. I'll try to return the 3 brave Kerbals in it on July 20th. Do any of you do some Apollo 11 anniversary stuff as well? Update July 20th: We now have confirmation that the lunar excursion module has safely touched down in the sea of tranquility. Congratulations to Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin! To celebrate the Moon landing, which o
  6. A Kerbal Apollo - An individual take on manned Apollo missions Since the Apollo program is my favorite part of historical manned space exploration, I have decided to play some Apollo missions on KSP (You might be aware of this if you have been following the What did you do on KSP today thread, but I am redoing this, this time with pictures and somewhat more detailed descriptions). I only intend on playing the manned missions, so flight tests like Apollo 6 will not be included (This means that I will begin with Apollo 7) and also, these missions will not be exact recreations, albeit I
  7. The Legendary Saturn V, re-imagined in a more modern and cost saving way, now with the ability to be completely reused! Craft file: https://kerbalx.com/SparkeyFlarkey/Reusable-Saturn-V This behemoth has a few changes that make it stand out from the original, such as legs, wings, and extra boosters! 4 extra vector engines on the first stage second stage uses 5 vectors instead of skiffs as it needs to make orbit quickly Lunar module has only one stage instead of two to get the whole thing back service module is now a spaceplane capable of verticle landings
  8. Hello all! Just wanted to share a project I've been working on for entirely too long. I started out wanting to create a more generic launch platform for general use in KSP, but quickly snowballed into an attempted recreation of the Apollo Mobile Launcher and Launch Umbilical Tower. I remember seeing the outstanding documentary For All Mankind when I was a kid and absolutely -loving- the shot from the elevator of the tower going up and seeing the behemoth Saturn V squatting right in front of the camera. Further review informed me that this elevator was actually located on the Mobile Servi
  9. So I'm pretty new to Kerbal Space Program (haven't even really left the kerbal system yet even though a probably could, because I just love mun/minmus missions), and for a while I've been messing around with stock Apollo replicas, and just general stock replicas of real life missions. Making an apollo lander in stock KSP, without any of that fancy DLC is naturally a pretty big challenge, but I'm really proud of this one and felt like sharing It houses 2 brave kerbals, and although the video below was made very lazily using cheats, I can guarantee its ability to land on the mun and then re
  10. Alright, gents! (and ladies!) I've finished my replica of the Apollo 11 mission and published it to KerbalX for release! It is a fully stock, fully vanilla-KSP replica of the Apollo 11, and I've taken heavy inspiration from the legendary Munbug series. I've included as many features of the Saturn V and Apollo 11 launch as I feel I reasonably can. The craft already sits on the pad at a sturdy 788 parts, standing 49.7m tall and weighing over 850 tons. I have a full mission album of its use at the link below, and some nifty facts and spiffy slides at the KerbalX page. MISSION SCREENSHOT
  11. Hi, yesterday I made a Stock Saturn V (AKA The Katurn V) Using Making History Parts. Here are some images of it:
  12. So I was thinking about my favourite real world rockets yesterday, and got curious, what are your favourite rockets?(specifically the booster stage, not the payload). I quite like the Soviet R7, an ICBM repurposed as a spacecraft? Hell yeah!
  13. This is my attempt at making a Saturn V in the new DLC, IT needs some work, but it will function. If you want to fly this, you'll need to decent pilot and manually activate things past the third stage, further instructions are on the KerbalX page, I will be updating this craft soon to make it better and more optimized. As for right now I think its a pretty good replica of the real thing. Craft Download Page
  14. Alguem pode deixar o link pra dowload de uma replica stock do saturn-v para simular a ida da apollo?
  15. Download From Spacedock Because a Saturn V needs its ever-present companion, the Launch Umbilical Tower, I created a working replica of the Saturn Mobile Launcher. It's not 100% exact, far from it, and has been simplified to eliminate detail that would be tedious to make without any real benefit. It does fetaure retracting swing arms and tail service masts, plus two working elevators to allow crew boarding of the command module from the ground. There is also a hammerhead crane on top that can decouple and rotate using the Q and E (roll) keys. This is a standalone version of the S
  16. I have decided to post my LEGO Saturn V and some of my other Space-related shtuffs. Enjoy! Here's the box: When I got home after a long day, this box at the front door really made up for my exhaustion. Here's my little "display:" From left to right: Saturn 1B orientation manual, the Apollo capsule splashed-down, the July 21st 1969 newspaper from San Fransisco, showing the headline of the Moon landing, and the 12" Apollo astronaut that my Dad collected a long time ago. Here's stage S-IVB, the LEM servic
  17. Hey guys, I'm currently reading a lot about the less famous NASA missions, and I've come to a very specific question, that I could not find any precise information on. My question is regarding the second stage of the modified Saturn V rocket, used to launch Skylab into space in 1973. As far as I know, the modified Saturn V actually consisted of the normal first and second stage, with the third stage being replaced by Skylab itself. In case of the "normal" Saturn V, the first and the second stage would usually crash down into the ocean, while the third stage - which carried the instru
  18. Hello, Today I would like to discuss the matter of the Orion program. I have one major question: why spend billions on R&D making the SLS, when there is already a tested rocket, called the Saturn V, which took people to the moon and back? The Saturn V could take more than 120t into LEO, the Block 1 crew 70t, and even the Cargo version can only support 130t.
  19. Hi All I have been playing KSP for 3 years now, I love this game and I never really got involved with the community so this is my first time :$ - but this time, I wanted to share with you all a mission Ive done to the mum using my version of the Saturn V Awesome experience, not 100% replicated but i'm surprised that worked really well.. although I had to waste half of the fuel in the 3rd stage, i got back with plenty left! my mods include KW rocketry, Tweak scale, kraken science, Apollo lander, scatterer, in between others... all in the new version 1.3 !! wa
  20. I have recently improved my Saturn V replica, and conducted a mock mission of Apollo 11 to the Moon (Mun) in KSP, using real NASA Audio. Its made with a 100% stock parts and looks as realistic as I could make it with the help of fairings. I felt it appropriate as the Apollo 11 anniversary is soon coming up. Check out the video: If you want the craft file I have it on Curse.com: https://mods.curse.com/shareables/kerbal/245459-stock-saturn-v Here are some pictures I recorded the video and took these screenshots with the follo
  21. Hey guys. Quick question. What font did they use for the big red "USA" on the S-IC and S-IVB and "United States" on the S-II stages of the Saturn V? Google searches turn up the possibility of Armadillo and Helvetica fonts being used on the S-II stage, but nothing on the other stages. I'm just curious so I can do a quick texture edit for the FASA Saturn V parts and replace the KSP and Kerbal States with their real-life conterparts.
  22. Hello all, Whenever I try to separate the CSM from the 3rd stage, the four fairing pieces that come with the rocket do not detach. I know that I have my staging correct. Does anyone have any helpful tips? Any help is appreciated. mustangpilot51
  23. I made a nice, well-flying Saturn V look-alike using stock and KW Rocketry parts. I also used MechJeb because I like the extra orbital info that it gives, but you can remove the MJ parts if you don't want them. Any comments? I would love to know how I could improve the realism and/or the flyability of this thing. Link to the .craft file: Clicky! Also, this thing was made in KSP 1.2.2. Specs: Part Count: 73 Width: 5m (First stage, Last stage 2.5m) Height: 62m Weight: 439.4t I have a severe lack of any pad screenshots, so most of what you are g
  24. If anyone is interested in making a high detail Saturn V rocket, I found a page that will get right down to the nitty gritty of the rocket with close ups of nearly the entire rocket.. http://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=214541&p=5301795
  25. I have a question for the community, during the late 1960's and early 1970's NASA built a moon rocket. it composed of a Command and Service Module, a Lunar module, and a transfer stage. Why were the command modules never reused, it would have saved money and time. and if I misspelled anything please forgive it its just spelling. alpha tech
