NISSKEPCSIM posted a topic in Add-on ReleasesA splinter faction of the renowned Tantares Space Technologies company, started in the backyard of an ambitious defector, this foundling space agency is slowly growing to become a competitor with the big boys. Q & A: Q: What is "Notantares Space Industries?" A: "Notantares Space Industries" is a mod intended to expand upon the extremely diverse and popular mod Tantares (Much like CONTARES does), including spacecraft and/or rockets that are not included in the main mod (eg: The "Big Soyuz," etc.), as well as various other additions. It is designed to be completely independant from Tantares, so that those who aren't using it can still use the Notantares Space Industries series of mods. Notantares is designed to be released in a series of "mini-packs," much like SXT used to have its own mini-packs, so that those who only want a specific selection of parts can just download those parts. However, it is, most importantly, not Tantares! Q: Can you add X, Y, and Z into the game? A: Thanks for the suggestion! I'll try to expand the mod to include these, but there are priorities. Q: Can you add IVAs? A: I will try to give IVAs to command pods, but for any large station parts, they'll have to wait. Mods: Big Soyuz "Big Khleb." (1.4.2) Please Note: The above picture is outdated; The Big Soyuz mod now includes way more rocket parts, and with updated normal maps. DESCRIPTION: "Big Khleb" is an advanced crew transportation spacecraft capable of holding up to 6 kerbonauts, and is unlockable in the mid-to-late tech tree. It is designed to be able to support its crew for long-duration missions to space stations or to assist in lunar expeditions. It shall be designed with its own set of 0.9375m ungendered docking ports, so that those who do not use Tantares can still use the "Big Khleb." Whatever your needs, the "Big Khleb" can fulfil them! It currently includes 3 fully-functional IVAs, a selection of modular command pods, fuel tanks, and engines, and functioning docking ports with integrated parachutes! DEPENDENCIES: Modulemanager by @sarbian (Included). LICENSE: GNU General Public License v3.0. CREDIT: Special thanks to @Beale and @passinglurker for allowing me to modify one of their texture sheets. A big thanks to @Nertea, for helping me solve numerous problems with my IVA. ---------- Notantares Station Parts. (1.4.2) Watch The Trailer. Please Note: This video is outdated and does not contain the full selection of parts the mod currently has. DESCRIPTION: Notantares Station Parts is a parts mod that will include an extensive array of both inflatable and rigid space station parts, designed to be used for orbital bases and spacecraft. The included parts will range from Bigelow-style inflatable habitats, centrifuges, and ISS-style crew modules. It is designed as an expansion to the Big Soyuz and NotantaresLV mini-packs. It currently includes a 1.25m large inflatable habitat (3.75m when inflated, can hold 8 crew, functions as a science lab!), a 1.25m inflatable centrifuge (9m when inflated, functions as crew storage only!), a 1.25m medium-sized inflatable habitat (3.75m when inflated, can hold 6 crew, functions as a science lab!), and a 1.25m small-sized inflatable habitat (3.75m when inflated, can hold 4 crew, functions as crew storage only!). DEPENDENCIES: Modulemanager by @sarbian, the DSEV Utils plugin found in DSEV by @Angel-125 (Included). LICENSE: GNU General Public License v3.0. CREDIT: Special thanks to @Angel-125 for allowing me to use his DSEV Utils plugin. A big thanks to a host of other modders for helping me with numerous animation problems. ---------- Notantares LV. (1.4.2) Watch The Trailer. Please Note: This video is outdated and contains an older version of the Notangara launch vehicle. DESCRIPTION: NotantaresLV is a mod that includes an extensive collection of parts designed to be used in the construction of both fictional and real-world launch vehicles, most notably Angara and the UR-700 Soviet moon rocket. It currently includes a full suite of 1.75m, 2.5m, and 3.75m fuel tanks with integrated texture-switching, an RD-191 engine for the Angara URM-1 boosters, an RD-0124 engine for the Angara URM-2 upper stage, 1.875m and 2.5m aerodynamic nosecones, 1.875m and 2.5m decouplers, and a 2.5m fairing!

Please Note: This review is outdated and does not showcase the full selection of parts the mod currently has. DESCRIPTION: A set of parts to help you in the construction of large interplanetary spacecraft. Includes MM patches for CTT, USI-LS and Snacks! It currently includes a 2.5m foldable centrifuge, 2.5m and 3.75m hubs for building stations, and inline 3.75m solar panels. DEPENDENCIES: Modulemanager by @sarbian (Included). LICENSE: GNU General Public License v3.0. CREDIT: Special thanks to @Badsector for allowing me to take over and maintain DarkSideTechnology. ---------- BDB-Compatible Gemini Paraglider. (1.4.2) DESCRIPTION: This early-to-mid tech tree wonder is designed to be used with the Bluedog Design Bureau Gemini, but it has a degree of modularity that allows it to be used by any capsule. It can be deployed instead of a parachute, and allows a capsule to glide to down to a landing in a dried-up lake bed or a runway, like an aircraft! Includes 1 part: A deployable Gemini-style paraglider wing. DEPENDENCIES: Modulemanager by @sarbian (Included), RetractableLiftingSurface by @linuxgurugamer (NOT INCLUDED). LICENSE: GNU General Public License v3.0. CREDIT: Special thanks to @CobaltWolf for allowing me to use/modify one of his texture sheets. A special thanks to a host of modders who helped me to perfect the paraglider's aero, including but not limited to: @Pak, @steedcrugeon, @TheRagingIrishman, and @Angel-125. ATTACHMENT INSTRUCTIONS (IMPORTANT!) ---------- Porkalike Gemini-style "Mk1-A" Command Pod. (1.4.2) A 1.25m, 2-man, Porkalike, Gemini-alike command pod, whose textures are modified and transplanted from the Mk1 pod from the Porkjet rocketry overhaul, in order to look good next to Porkjet parts. Has built-in ComfortableLanding (By @Icecovery) compatibility, for those who are using that mod, and a placeholder IVA until I can scrape up the time to make one myself! It currently includes just one part: The Mk1-A command pod. DEPENDENCIES: Modulemanager by @sarbian, (Included). LICENSE: GNU General Public License v3.0.
NISSKEPCSIM posted a topic in Add-on DevelopmentNotantares Space Industries - Poll Now that I'm (Mostly) done with the "Big Khleb" parts, I'm beginning to think of other things to do. First on the list? @qzgy's "Bigger Khleb" suggestion. "Wonder if you would make a "Bigger Khleb", by extending it for a crew cabin or something." Essentially, something in the same vain as the Big Gemini "Big-G." However, before I can even start modelling, I have a very important question to ask you all: Which variant of the "Bigger Khleb" do you prefer? So far, I have come up with two concepts: I am opening a poll, so you can cast your votes. If you have other ideas, like, let's say, giving Concept 1 Concept 2's Service Module, please leave a comment.
