LAST CRAFT FILE UPDATE: 05 December 07:30 EST CHECK BACK FOR MORE CRAFT RELEASES TABLE OF CONTENTS 1) Raptor Aerospace History, Description & Personal Notes 2) SPH Craft File Download Links 3) VAB Craft File Download Links 4) Subassembly Download Links 5) Categorized Bulk Download Links 6) Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) 7) Most recent update listings & future plans HISTORY This thread is a 4.0 version of my Raptor Aerospace showcase thread, which I started in November 2014 (KSP v0.25) with around a dozen SPH aircraft posted as nothing more than screenshot eye-candy. Although I've been playing KSP since v0.13, I am not perfect. Whenever I (or other players) find issues or defects with my craft, I update and republish. Some of these designs have been around for several years (ie, several versions of KSP). As new parts for KSP were developed and existing components refined, these concepts were updated or refined and then republished. Each has been flight-tested throughout multiple conditions, altitudes, airspeeds, fuel/payload amounts, etc. to find out where their limits are, and where they perform best. TODAY Today, Raptor's Craft Download Catalog contains craft designs across the full breadth of KSP applications, from atmospheric airplanes to interplanetary spacecraft. All of the craft here are built/designed within the stock aero model, and all are 100% stock. While most of my designs are influenced by real-life aircraft, spacecraft, or concepts, they are not meant to be replicas. The craft are built to imitate function over appearance. If aesthetics can be implemented as well, that's a plus, but not to the extent it compromises functionality or significantly hinders performance or efficiency. To browse for a craft file, expand the primary spoiler drop-downs (SPH, VAB, or Subassemblies) and then continue to work your way through the "catalog tree" until you find something you'd like. Then click the hyperlink below that craft file image and it will redirect you to the appropriate KerbalX page to download that craft. ________________________________________________ Personal Notes I'd like to thank @katateochi for his administration and maintenance of the KerbalX website. It's a user-friendly, fan-driven site that allows community members to exchange craft files for use, modded or stock. If you're an avid user of the KerbalX site, please help support it by donating via links on the main KerbalX page.

A: Craft that are shared here are made for my use in KSP, but everyone has different building and play styles. If you want an SSTO spaceplane with an LV-N engine on it, it's too easy to throw one on there yourself. I don't take craft requests. If you have a craft request, there are already a number of experienced KSP builders on the forums that do take requests. However, I don't have the time or motivation to be out-sourced. Q: How do you make the brochure-style graphics for each craft download? A: I start by taking screenshots using Kronal Vessel Viewer, then do all the rest manually using Microsoft Paint. Simple and easy. Q: You have too many craft to download, how can I get all of them without dedicating an absurd amount of time clicking away on KerbalX? A: You're in luck! @katateochi (who runs the KerbalX website), was kind enough to implement a new feature to enable downloading an entire hanger of craft files. You can find links to groups of craft in the Categorized Bulk Downloads Section just above. Q: I don't understand how to use one of your craft. A: I try to be as informative and concise when making the brochure-style graphics that accompany each craft. They're intended to provide other users with basic information to the craft's purpose, action group settings, and other miscellaneous tidbits that hopefully clarify what went into the design. However, after reviewing the craft graphic there are still unanswered questions, feel free to post your question in this thread and I'll try to answer as soon as I am able. Q: One of your craft appears to not be working as intended. A: This is a common comment I see on KerbalX. First thing I'm going to ask you to do is try the craft out in a vanilla (stock only) install of KSP. 9/10 times a mod is altering the behavior of the craft or interfering with a designed feature. I am not without my mistakes, but I thoroughly test these craft in stock KSP before publishing them on KerbalX. Another reason may be using the craft in a different version of KSP than it was intended. I'm always happy to troubleshoot issues, but the first two questions I will ask are "Do you have any mods installed?" and "Which version of KSP are you running?" ________________________________________________ Most Recent Updates (Last 7 days) ----------05 Dec---------- - 'Explorer' Jool probe (NEW) - 'Emerald Sky' (Update, slight tweak) - 'Dark Sky' Dres probe (Update/Renamed from 'Explorer') - 'DresLink' Dres comms relay (NEW) - 'JoolLink' Jool comms relay (NEW) - 'Scout-Outrider' Jool/Laythe probe (NEW) - 'Fire Sky-Pacer' Moho probes (NEW) Future Updates to the thread -----Short-term Plans----- - Updating some Station Module (SM-series) subassemblies for lower part counts - Surface base revamp/expansion project (better modules, new cargo landers, modular payload integration) -----Post-1.6 Update Plans----- - Updating/Revising EV-2A/LV-1 (Apollo-era) hardware as necessary given the latest part updates (i.e. Mk2 Lander Can) - LV-4B 'Armadillo' Duna lander (waiting on new 'Spark' variant which gives better thrust and ISP over 'Twitch' engines) - HLV-6A/B 'Warthog' Duna landers (waiting on a number of part updates, and is intertwined with the surface base revamp) - EV-7 'Skipjack' (waiting on several part updates, and the whole craft is getting revised...I can do better) -----Long-term Plans----- - More "M3V" - Kerbin-based logistics project
i was wondering if anyone could help me out. if i have a mod witch is comprised of a few different "sets" would it be acceptable and/or reasonable to create space dock or similar mod pages for each "set" as well as one for the combined "set"? this is partly to gauge peoples opinions and to see if the are any complications with doing this or reasons why it cannot be done?
