This is a post I originally started a couple years ago in a thread for My History of Spaceflight, but it got a little buried (...I couldn't find it...) so I thought I'd make a new post and include my thoughts on spacecraft design et. al. I would like to keep updating it with comments of various craft that I've created as well as the through process behind them. Philosophy and Approach This actually encompasses more than just KSP as I've been "designing" spaceships since I was a little kid, "swooshing" a few little Lego parts that I wholeheartedly believed was a spaceship. I have a vi
So for what ever reason I keep encountering a rotational torque being applied to my starting tech jet planes on take off, despite the fact they are perfectly symmetrical in design and are a based on a generic leer jet profile. Large swept wings in front, smaller elevators in on the tail, vertical tail fin, and two small engines located above the elevators, yet some how I am getting some torque being generated, causing the plane to yaw hard to one side or another. My COM is in front of the center of lift and my center of thrust is behind that. Regardless if SAS is on or off and the steering is
Hello, and welcome to my collection! Modern Vehicles Space Classifications Core 3 Nano Destroyer(Space)(Stock) 2100 m/s DV .2 TWR 52 tons 380 parts The anti-ship missiles are guided, and pack a punch that is rather strong for their light weight. The armor is also rather strong, but the range suffers because of those strengths. CR-01 Pico-class Corvette 3,091 m/s DV .08 TWR 23.257 tons 248 parts An optionally manned scout ship equipped with a big punch: 4 unguided i-beams that can launch simultaneously. These i
Atto and Pico-class Sub-Capital Ships These ships are lightweight escort vessels designed to pack a punch, and have strong armor. Both of these ships have no launchers included, but can easily be launched with custom designs because of their light weight. These ships offer great escort to capital ships, anti-subcapital capability, escort of logistics vessels, armed communications capability, and fighter deterrence.
