  1. Taurus & Amarok Mod Pack Download: SpaceDock Source: Manual: Assembly Guide Taurus Launch Systems The Taurus Launcher series provide an early to mid-career set of lifters that enable you to launch payloads in LKO and beyond without too much assembly, whilst making an effort to look a bit more like a real rocket. They are based on bits and pieces from Lionhead's ESA Launchers, Socke 1.875 HGR extension, some texturing ideas from Benjee and a lot of creativity and testing. The included guide gives some examples of various configurations ranging from 1 ton to 12 ton LKO. Support for CTT is included. Parts Taurus Launcher Family Amarok Space Systems The Amarok Space Systems are a series of space craft that help you through your career in a fashionable and recoverable way. I never quite understood how the Navy was supposed to find grey capsules at sea, therefor these craft follow a pain job similar to that of Copenhagen Suborbitales ( Based on some texturing ideas from Martinezfg11 and modeling ideas from the Phoenix capsule from MoviesColin IVA snippets from Tokamak and Fuji parts from Beale. As well as the Circular Panels from Yogui, and FusTek doors, docking ports and some decal. The lunar module is quite in alpha yet and must be considered a prototype. All capsules come with pretty IVAs (hence Kottabos click-bait) but the Mk2 capsule is having difficulties on KSP 1.3.1 it does show properly on 1.3.0. Parts Requires ASET Props by Alexustas (bundled in download) and Module Manager Plays well with - CTT, Kerbalism, TAC, Taurus, StockeAA, HGR, Tantares, BDD, Kerbal Engineer License CC-BY-NC-SA Pictures or it didn't happen
  2. R&S Capsuledyne is proud to present their first project: A 3.75-m stockalike command module system: the Taurus High Capacity Vehicle The Parts: Features -Seats up to 7 kerbals (3 pilots and 4 passengers). -Ideal for station transport, deep space exploration, command module operations, and more! -Featuring incredibly safe totally awesome-looking retractable built in launch escape system! -Fully modeled interior with support for both Stock and RasterPropMonitor -Includes separate stock thermodynamics compatible heatshield part Features -Operates like stock science bay, but requires more Kerbals, power, and transmits data more efficiently -Two unpressurized cargo bays for storing science instruments, RCS, solar panels, KAS parts, Kerbals, and more Features -Carries up to 8 unwilling participants into space -Allows you to ruin your reputation in one fell swoop Installation Instructions -Merge the GameData folder from the download with the GameData folder in your KSP install -To remove the LES, copy the file inside the "alternateConfig" folder to Gamedata/R&SCapsuledyne/Parts/TaurusHCV and replace the file with the same name Download Links Please delete any previous installation before installing version 1.5+! Special thanks to @Deimos Rast for the 1.2 compatibility patch! Download the fixed, rebalanced, and better than ever Taurus HCV here! LEGACY DOWNLOAD LINKS Media Parts Inspirational images Launch escape system demo video Credits Version 1.5.3 Created by R&S Capsuledyne: jnrobinson and bsquiklehausen -Animation Modules plugin created by BahamutoD -Also thanks to those of you who helped me blunder my way through unity over on the part modeling forum.

TIL 'Capsuledyne" has two 'e's -Cleaned up Unity materials used, may cause performance gains, may not, who knows -Introduced KNOWN BUG: the engine sinks through the launchpad, even though it has a proper (functional) collider (let us know if you can help!) -Just don't use the Quadroodle as a launch engine - it's not good at that anyway v 1.3.0 (10/7/14) -Added new part: a 3.75 m orbital engine with fairing -Added new part: a 3.75 m 8-Kerbal hitchhiker with interior -Added new part: a 3.75 m extra thin fuel tank perfect for large service modules -Modified all textures for every part -Modified ALL textures for every part (too much work for a single changelog line!) -Moved parts around the tech tree to spread everything out for career mode, parts now distributed across several nodes in the last tier -Changed part costs and entry costs for several parts. Should be reasonable in-line now -Actually balanced LES thrust much more -Converted SolidFuel LES boosters to MonoPropellant so you don't have to lug SolidFuel through the solar system.
