  1. This is a parts pack that adds a stock alike version of the SLS in 5m size as well as a few Space Shuttle specific parts that will allow you to build the Block I SLS with the complete Orion Spacecraft (CM, SM, and LAS), as well as a full Space Shuttle stack with an External Tank and SRBs that are 5m and 2.25m respectively to be in scale with the Mk3 Spaceplane parts. Note: Delete your old ShadowWorks Install before installing all Updates. Version 2.0.1 Hotfix - Corrects an error in the Altair Landing Leg config that prevented it from showing up in the career tech tree. (Thanks to NapalmPK for catching this.) Updated to Version 2.0!!! A whole lot has changed with this update. Since it took me so long to motivate myself to finish the Jupiter (DIRECT) and Altair Lander parts, and seeing the progress of a lot of other mods I decided that the mod as a whole could use a facelift. With the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 I was inspired to finally finish the Jupiter and Altair, and complete a near total overhaul of the mod. Nearly every part has been remodeled and retextured, and I have made use of the stock Part Variant module for mesh and texture switching, throttle-based animations to animate the extending nozzle of the RL10B, and the new mapped specular shaders to provide a mirrored Orion capsule. I have also gone through and properly given most (if not all) parts an alias taken from the ancient Egyptian pantheon. I figured, you don't see that very often, so why not. Below is the Change Log for version 2.0, which is extensive, but I may have missed a couple of things. Changes 2.0.1: ------------------------ * Altair Landing Legs will now show up in the career tech tree under "advLanding" Changes 2.0: --------------------- Removed: * External Tank Nose Cone * External Tank * External Tank End Cap * These three were replaced with two tanks (see Additions) * File: "_ShadowWorks_RealChutes.cfg" Removed * File: "_ShadowWorks_FSTextureSwitching.cfg" Removed * SLS 5m - 3.25 m Adapter (Orion can be attached to the EUS using the SLS 5m Fairing Base No Payload variant. Additions: * MOARdV Avionics Systems compatibility patches adding functioning MFDs and other controls to the Orion and Altair IVAs. Also adds a camera and docking radar to the NASA Docking System (NDS) 0.9375m docking port. * ModulePartVariant: * SLS Core Stage * Bare Orange Insulation * Black and White Painted * ICPS Decoupler * Bare Orange Insulation * Black and White Painted * EUS * Bare Orange Insulation * Black and White Painted * EUS Decoupler * Bare Orange Insulation * Black and White Painted * External Tank Liquid Fuel Tank * Bare Orange Insulation * STS-1 White * Jupiter (DIRECT) Liquid Fuel Tank with Engine Mount (Mesh) * External Tank Oxidizer Tank * Bare Orange Insulation * STS-1 White * Jupiter (DIRECT) Oxidizer Tank (Mesh) * Shuttle Orbiter Radial Decoupler * Bare Orange Insulation * STS-1 White * Orion Pod * Mirrored * White * EFT-1 Black * Orion CM Cap * Mirrored * White * EFT-1 Black * ICPS * ICPS (Mesh) * DCSS 5m (Mesh) * SLS 5m Fairing Base * Orion attach nodes to accommodate the Altair Lander * Orion attach nodes for no/small payloads * Orion attach nodes for tall payloads * Jupiter (DIRECT) Upper Stage Tank * Earth Departure Stage Tank * Jupiter Upper Stage Engine Mount (6x symmetry) * Earth Departure Stage Engine Mount (1 engine & 2 engine variants, uses ModulePartVariant) * Earth Departure/Jupiter Upper Stage interstage decoupler * Altair Ascent Stage (w/integrated RCS and ascent engine) * Altair Decoupler (w/airlock for crew EVA) * Altair Descent Stage (w/integrated engines) * Altair RCS Quad (rcs quads for the descent stage) * Altair Landing Legs (must set to "Gears" Action Group to use the "g" hotkey) * SRB Aft Separation Motor (mounts on aft skirt of 4-segment, 5-segment, and Black Paladin SRBs * 4m Delta Cryogenic Second Stage * 5m Delta Cryogenic Second Stage (ICPS without the Orion adaptor) * Delta IV Medium decoupler * RL10A * Shuttle Orbiter radial decoupler * 4-segment/5-segment SRB radial decoupler * External Tank Oxidizer tank * External Tank Liquid Fuel tank * Ares I Payload Fairing Base Updates: (Nearly Complete Overhaul) * Orion Launch Abort System was separated into two (2) separate parts, the Abort Motor, and the Jettison Motor. * Orion Pod: Remodeled to add detail. * Orion CM Cap: Remodeled to add detail. * Orion Heatshield: Updated model, given mirrored finish * Orion Chutes: Made into single chute part that is attached to the Orion Pod directly. * Orion CM Decopuler: Remodeled. * Orion Service Module: Remodeled to add detail. All RCS pods have been integrated with the SM, and attach nodes added for easier attachment of solar panels. * Orion Solar Panels: Added attach node for easier attachment to SM * Orion SM Decoupler: Remodeled to add detail. * Orion SM Fairing: Remodeled to add detail and improve staging of the petals. * ICPS: Remodeled, 5m DCSS is a variant of this part, added flag decals * ICPS Decoupler: Remodeled to add detail. * SLS Core Stage: Remodeled to add detail.

Added integrated decouplers, 1 for attaching payloads that is not activated by staging, and another for the Orion that is activated by staging the fairing. Added attach nodes for the Orion SM Fairing. * Delta IV Payload Fairing: Remodeled to add detail. Added a payload fairing for the 4m DCSS. NOTE: The 1.25m base of the PMA is a docking port, you do not need to attach a CBM to dock the PMA to other CBMs Download on SpaceDock: Also available through CKAN (or so I'm led to believe) A review of the mod by @jd9921 (Gemini10 Gamers on YouTube) Osiris Capsule showing off the mirrored finish Amun-Ra (SLS) Block I Amun-Ra Block IB Amun-Ra Block II Bastet IV Heavy flying EFT-1 Bastet IV Medium Amunet Space Shuttle Parts Hathor (Jupiter DIRECT)-130 Hathor-246 MOARdV Avionics Systems IVAs for Osiris and Horus Recommended Mods Bacon Labs Stockalike Ariane and More (Dead link) - I provided the Ariane and Vega launchers for this pack, and it uses a modified version of the Shuttle SRBs from this mod Tantares Stockalike Soyuz and Mir - a great mod by Beale adding Soviet/Russian spacecraft and launchers Bluedog Design Bureau - Stockalike Saturn, Apollo, & More - Awesome stockalike historic American spacecraft and launchers License: ShadowWorks is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License
  2. My Delta IV Heavy replica with Orion Spacecraft replica. The craft has approximately 7000 of Delta-V. I was very excited about this creation. https://imgur.com/a/GwLbYpC
  3. okay ever since the launch of EFT-1 I have been obsessed with the Delta IV Heavy rocket I mean holly crape that rocket is AWESOME! I plan on build a 3.25 meter radius replica using rhinos and as soon as I build it I will post pictures (@Firemetal I want to see your replica)
  4. Altitude compensation has importance beyond just SSTO's. It can improve payload even for multistage rockets. For the Falcon 9 the payload can be increased by approx. 25%. However, the increase is especially marked for triple-cored rockets such as the Falcon Heavy and Delta IV Heavy, in the range of 40%. Moreover, there is an especial synergy when it is used in conjunction with cross-feed fueling for triple-cored rockets. This is because with cross-feed the center core stage spends a larger amount of time at high altitude and vacuum conditions. So the higher vacuum Isp has a greater effect in this case. Indeed, for triple-cored rockets, using both cross-feed and altitude compensation can double the payload: Altitude Compensation Improves Payload for All Launchers. http://exoscientist.blogspot.com/2016/01/altitude-compensation-improves-payload.html Then it is important to develop altitude compensation even if you don't believe in SSTO's. Ironically, though, once altitude compensation is developed, then it will be realized how valuable SSTO's are. Bob Clark
