  1. Meet the fleet! Tundra Exploration v1.2 coming 11-26-2018 This mod was originally created by @tygoo7 (here) and will be continued by me. Tundra Exploration will continue to focus on stock-alike SpaceX and various other space related parts in KSP. Expect many more parts to be added in the future. If you have any suggestions, please leave a comment Beta versions on GitHub Including New Horizons, Rosetta + Philae, LADEE and soon many more! Current parts Rodan command pod, heatshield, and trunk. It also has a nice IVA included. (Dragon V2) Staub control block, fuel tank, and OCS. (LADEE) Ghidorah 9 fuel tanks, second stage engine, first stage engine, legs, grid fins, and decoupler (Falcon 9) Ghidorah Heavy parts (nose cone, decoupler) Gigan pod, heatshield, shroud, trunk, solar panel, solar shroud. (Cargo Dragon V2) Gojira command pod with fuel tank, engine shroud and engines (SpaceX's BFS) + booster parts Mothra Launcher (Falcon 1) Satellite parts moved to Tundra Technologies <--- included!

  2. For the first time a SpaceX project on Lego Ideas is about to finally hit 10,000 supporters. At which time it will go in front of a Lego review board to be green-lighted. Elon Musk will also have to give it his blessing. It only has a few hundred supporters to go. Check out the updates tab to see the upgrades (including the FH Block 5). The creator is a STEM teacher who built the set to inspire his students. Let's support him and get him the rest of the way!
  3. I was looking on the around and noticed there isn't a thread for re-usable rockets not even Falcon 9 replicas so I decided to start one. I don't care if they just reuse the first stage or the whole thing, POST IT HERE! PS I will have mine up soon.
  4. Hello everyone! Recently I've been messing around with HalfRSS mod (best decision ever!) and, of course, tried to recreate Flacon 9, both 1st and 2nd stage.I've found this sheethttps://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1X9FUdHnowboCrjoWKpTM5OtLEqj26UWhF0UbEnON5_Q/edit?f=true&noheader=true&gid=18#gid=27 With pretty reasonable info about falcons parameters. I've scaled them down to be suitable, for HRSS, taking total delta-V as my base. Parameter | Falcon 9 | HRSS | Mine Total dV | 9380 | ~7200 | 7038 1st st dV | 3076 | ~2371 | 2369 2nd st dV | 6388 | ~4925 | 4669 With all this, i struggle to reach orbit. it seems that my 2nd stage has not nearly enough TWR to push craft to orbit. separation occurs somewhere between 40 - 50 km high (AP at 95-100km), and 2nd sdtage starts its burn right away. sadly no matter what pitch I set, 2nd stage doesn't even burn through half of its dV, until it falls back to atmosphere. What might be the reason for this? Is Falcon9 data I based inaccurate? or its HRRS fault (longer to reach AP in RSS than in HRSS?), or maybe my gravity turn is made badly? Cheers
  5. I made a SpaceX's Falcon 9 launch simulation with the deployment of a dummy satellite and the recovery of the first stage on the drone ship. I always love seeing the lives launches from SpaceX and I just wanted to do it in KSP so we can see it from a better angle. I used some mods like : - SpaceX Launch Vehicles crafts - Environmental Visual Enhancements - Distant Object Enhancement - Stock Visual Enhancements - PlanetShine - Camera Tools - MechJeb
  6. We all know how well Falcon 9 is able to land by itself now, but before Falcon 9 became a reality there were several designs for autonomous self landing boosters. This is their story
  7. I was surprised to see this article: http://www.theverge.com/2016/5/1/11549456/spacex-falcon-9-heavy-launch-capabilities-weight-mars Long story short, they've re-spec-ed the Falcon 9 so that it can haul quite a bit more mass into low orbit. 22 metric tons versus the old 13 tons. And the F9-Heavy will be able to lift even more onto Mars. I know that most rockets operate with a good safety margin, but I'm a bit confused as to how they could have gotten this much extra out of it. Elon Musk's tweets say that they haven't' substantially changed the machinery of the engines themselves. I take this to mean that they're just pushing them harder, which would mean a higher thrust and maybe higher exhaust velocity? Does anyone have more data on the old specs and the new specs? On wikipedia it currently lists the Merlin engine as having 282 s at sea level. No idea if this is the new one or the old one.
  8. So... i found this video by "Russianvids" so i decided to make a video about it. My video: Anyway he made really dumb arguments saying and i quote "Look how you see this rocket pointed at an angle like parallel almost and somehow it adjust it's self and comes down for a straight landing give me a break" And anyone who has seen any SpaceX footage especially the Thaicom 8 video you can CLEARLY see the Cold gas thrusters or "RCS Thrusters" firing to adjust and angle itself in the right direction anyway watch the video i know my voice might be cringey i really need a new mic Note: I Don't know why but it is out of sync for some reason :/
  9. My First Collection The Collection is called Tulerman Industries Collection, was a cooperation with the Brazilian Giuliano Tulerman and the Youtube channel Kerbal Essences. (Thanks to Lukas!). Hello. (This is a collection of welded parts) I am newbie in this branch of KSP Collection. I need a time to update the forum post and the collection. So, if you think, `that collection is Regularly updated`, you are wrong. The time to update this is long, but i`ll try to update soon and soon. Giuliano Tulerman, CEO of Tulerman Industries Features: -Satelittes -Rockets Parts -Useless parts Plans to future: -New Rockets Parts* -New Sats* -New Useless Parts* *=This item can be your suggestion! Post in commentary what you wish in my mod! Green-Soon Yellow-No Soon and no Far Red-Far Know Bugs: -Soyuz Boosters can burn the Soyuz main Booster -Vega First Stage burn and can Explode due overheating.

    SpaceX Jason 3 Mission Overview

    Hey, I've made an overview video of SpaceX's Jason 3 mission, which is scheduled for tomorrow. SpaceX will attempt to land the first stage on the barge after their successful orbcomm-2 landing in December. Hope you guys like it!
