reDIRECT | V0.9.9 | Shuttle-Derived Launch Vehicles Revival of my old Shuttle-Derived launch vehicle mod for KSP 1.4.1. The mod has been completely rebuilt from the ground up, with new models & textures. It will not replace older versions of the mod to avoid conflicts. Principally, the mod adds STS-style 5m fuel tanks, and 2.2m Solid Rocket Boosters. Adapters and decouplers are also included! These can be used to built Space Shuttle (STS) stacks, or the Jupiter rockets from the DIRECT proposal that this mod takes its name from. Screenshots: Part variants are included! PHASE I: Jupiter STS External Tank. Jupiter Stack Parts, including adapters, separators and thrust plates. Shuttle 4-Segment Booster Parts 5-Segment Booster 2 & 3-Segment Boosters (for SRB-X) Jupiter Upper Stage Parts. PHASE II: Orion Orion Capsule & Associated Parts. Orion Service Module Parts PHASE III: Constellation/SLS SLS Parts Ares I Parts Recommended other mods: Cormorant Aeronology (essential for building Mk3 shuttles) Sigma Dimensions (I recommend you play at 2.5x scale) CHANGELOG 0.9.9.

On my GitHub you will find the latest development versions: GITHUB This features the newest parts and updates but may not be properly balanced or stable, and will frequently be updated which may result in craft files breaking. Use at your own risk! This should work correctly with 1.3.1 and up.

So i think about making a challenge or maybe a mission like ares without Ares 3 failure so you can use any mod you can. I have created the mav useing phoneix industry mav like acent vehicle, Phoneix industry small sat (for satelite and surveyor), hullcam vds (for imaging mission site) hermes mod (i forget what it's called), phoneix industry rover or another ares like rover, habitat mod, mechjeb, hyperedit, tac life support, kas, kis, shadow works orion, and laztek spacex launch vehicle for the mission. i will post it when my mission is done. I will put hermes in leo, mav in duna, rover near the hab, hab on duna near the mav. This is not creating the martian but make a ares mission like launch, dock with hermes, hermes go to duna, mdv land on duna, crew do some experiment, crew launch from the mav, crew dock with hemes, hermes get back to earth, return vehicle dock with hermes, and crew get back to earth (the launch and return vehicle are MPCV Orion from shadow works orion mod. That is my my mission plan. So i challenge you to make ares lkke mission using any mod you like.
After doing a lot of missions in modded KSP installs (RSS, RO, or just visual enhancements) I got the idea to do a Youtube series of one of these missions. The idea of this mission/series took shape after watching the movie and reading the book "The Martian". This series is about a possible future space program called "Ares" (Greek god of war - Romans called him Mars) to establish a human settlement on Mars by using KSP v 1.0.4. The install I used is regular KSP with many mods. I mixed current, proven tech and missions with near-future, or even proposed technology that didn't make it into prodoction. As the recording progresses, I got the hang of using the camera tools and video editor. Therefore, I personally think the first parts are a bit 'basic'. Anyway, I hope you enjoy watching it. Any comments welcome. I'm planning to make one episode every 3 weeks, depending on social life / work / missus Here is the Youtube playlist ARES Here are the latest 3 parts:
