  1. I’ve searched for a radial or wraparound heat shields mod to no avail. Trying to make a space shuttle or starship with heat shields is basically impossible. Is there a mod for this?
  2. Greetings to all of this forum. During my ksp adventures i find myself wanting certain parts that no mod had created as of yet. I want to be able to create more creative rocket designs, which aren't in the wholy kerbal style of strapping on moar boosters. Such part ideas include, radial, surface attached heat shields. Kinda like the curved solar panels from Near Future Solar. And maybe an upgraded version of the mk1-3 command pod, I would like to see one with more kerbals crammed in as the current internals allude to lots of space available. I had the idea for the upgraded mk1-
  3. Hi, Using the oft-recommended KSP Launch Window Planner (http://alexmoon.github.io/ksp/), I'm attempting to set up a mission that will take a very aggressive (totally non-Hohmann) transfer to Duna. The idea is to shave time off the transfer (and depart a good ~80-100 days before the planets are "ideally" aligned) by spending a lot more delta-v than would be "optimal". I'm about to unlock the ISRU converter and build out a Mun mining base with Extraplanetary Launchpads, so my thinking is "fuel is cheaper than time". (I don't want to time-warp through the long coast because I've got lots of
  4. I just lost an expedition (six tourists, one pilot) because the Hitchhiker exploded during reentry on the way back from the Mun, despite having a 2.5m heatshild directly attacked to it. Why did this happen?
  5. Ever thought it is rather obvious that the only thing to go under a heatshield is a decoupler? In fact, the decoupler might just as well be built-in to the heat shield! This little MM config will automatically add a decouple function to each heat shield, so you don't have to bother with attaching a decoupler underneath them while still retaining the option to jettison the whole shield. Enjoy http://spacedock.info/mod/472/Decouple%20from%20heatshield Also available via CKAN Thanks to Kerbart for rewording the OP
  6. Guys, Sorry for the simple question, but i'm new to this! Currently i'm trying to complete the heat shield testing (.625) and I was curious on the altitude part. The requirement is 30-36,000m, does this mean the testing needs to take place within this altitude or needs to be tested through the entire range? Also, does it matter if i'm ascending or descending? -Thanks so much!
  7. So here is a question I have been trying to find an answer to but have had no luck. How does heat on the ship during re entry work? In the instance of heat shields or just standard non heat shielded parts, is it the lead point that takes 100% of the heat or is it heating any point at all that is not parallel to entry angle. Basically here is the back story that leads to my question. I am using stage recovery mod because I like the realism of being able to recover stages. Because of this each stage has parachutes and other things designed to slow down my stages. On my main stage (4 nerv's a ora
  8. Hey everyone I'm back with my second video this time about the limits of the inflatable heatshield. I tried to compare it to other methods of slowing down so that you can see how good it performs Hopefully this will help and/or entertain you!
  9. Hi Guys! I finally created a video to stop being a long-time-lurker and to show you something about the new heatshieldpart. I hope you enjoy my first try Would be nice if you take the time, watch it and give me some feedback so that I can improve next time. Have a nice evening (at least in my time-zone) and hopefully thanks for watching
  10. Hello everyone. Let me introduce myself. My name is Maestro,. I'm 43, wearing a beard and started KSP at 0.24. Well, I'm not a newbie. Inspired with Scott Manley's videos "Serious Business", I've started a new career 'RSS+RP-0' and everything went well. until I first time tried to return the Moon vehicle to Earth. I've escaped Moon SOI, planned my Earth Pe. to 60-55... and... KA-BOOM! Heatshield exploded due to overheating. Well-well, I do know the physics and I do realize that heatshield isn't a panacea. So I've made the couple of experiments and realized that safe Pe. is ~
