Dakitess Corporation : Stock Cinematic Showcases ! [Update : Mendacium, 100% reusable huge launcher]


Recommended Posts

Hey there,

I'm not familiar with this official forum of KSP, but I am well known by the french community and I think my contribution could interrest some of you, so... Here I am !

To briefly introduce myself, I'm a an addict to KSP, fully Stock Player (I even give up Kerbcam to find back the typical static view of the game). Not that I'm anti-mod, I find them really interresting and incredibly well made regarding KSP, but I would spend even more time if I had the possibilty to use hinges, ressources, advanced mechanism... No no, keep them far from me !

Moreover it is for me a challenge to innovate further than even SQUAD could have think about, to create and design things in other way that there were meant to be done. Yeah, innovation should be the best word to describe my goal in KSP :)

I already have a hundred pages full of pics with all my creations, that you can find here : http://www.kerbalspaceprogram.fr/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=523&start=1060

You can navigate through the pages, it is in French so not really interresting but I always use to illustrate my words with clean screenshot :)

Enough blablabla, let's present some of my last creation and I'll start by a few videos :

Stock Aerial refuelling :

 

 

Using TT-70 Decouplers as homemade suspensions :

 

 

A full single launch modular station (3 épisodes, here is the second) :

 

 

An aesthetic and modular bomber with advanced nuke rocketry :

 

 

One of my favourite launcher, fully made to be aesthetic while massive and functionnal :

 

 

These are a few of them, please consider checking my Youtube Channel to see more. I'm not here just to make an add, but to receive feedback and try to integrate the large english-speaking community !

Hope you'll enjoy, see ya soon :)

Glad you liked it :) I made a full description of it with pics and words, available here :

http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/threads/94712-Dakitess-Corporation-DC-Scale-%28Aesthetic-huge-launcher%29

I think the best is to use only one topic for creation, pics and vids, no ? Do not hesitate to tell me if i'm doing something wrong regarding the rules or the uses ^^

Here is a small imgur album to see more about the refuelling arm of the DC - Flow (first video of the topic)

Javascript is disabled. View full album

Everything is based on the well known flexibilty of the TT-70 when arranged in chain. But there is also all a set of legs in order to keep 2 positions, deployed or not :)

Well, no feedback at all ? ^^ Thought it would maybe interest some of you ! Anyway here is the last one, even shorter so that you might want to give it a look :

You'll see 2 DC - Hunters flying side by side and doing some Top Gun Stuff ;)

Everything is fully stock except for the graphics aspect ^^

Enjoy !

Here is my last video ! A cinematic based on the ExoMars mission, that I wanted to reproduce as precisely as I could while being stock :)

Here It is ! Be sure to use 1080p and turn on Sound :) Took me quite a lot of time, so... Feeback appreciated !

Well, not much enthousiasm here :P

Maybe this one will be appreciated ! Took me a bit more than 40 hours to create and optimize this full stock launcher, capable of 100% reusability, with some innovative methods I think :wink: 

I really hope you'll like it, I did my best here, and any constructiv feedback would be appreciated !

Thank you for watching :)

Consider me thoroughly impressed. In terms of both appearance and functionality, that's got to be one of my favourite stock launch vehicles I've ever seen. The video was excellent too, and landing on the launch pad was quite a display of piloting expertise.

Wow. Just... wow. That's Korolev staging. Aesthetically pleasing Korolev staging. Aesthetically pleasing, reusable Korolev staging. Aesthetically pleasing, reusable Korolev staging presented in a video with really high production value. Consider me impressed.

Wow i'm very glad that you enjoyed the craft and the video edit itself !

It became my favourite craft even if I had to test it sooooo many hours haha. Very reliable and efficient while not using a single asparagus montage, and very fun to land each part :)

Yeah really, thank you for your feedback, do not hesitate to point out any things you would improve !

Just in addition, since you probably won't read french, the third stage is also reusable, using a high speed deceleration from very high and energetic trajectory, capable of returning from mun without heatshield, thank to its resistant rear parts and extra fuel to reduce the velocity at key moment.

I want to show the payload itself, which took me hours and hours as well, it is an all-in-one compact station, scoring 250 parts, and which need to be reassemble in orbit to shape a compact and complete station. But I doubt i'll have the time to do a proper showcase, so il will probably be a Twitch Live that I will record... But in french :s

Anyway, any other comments are welcome of course, and maybe a day I'll join the team of "Epic Engineers" :D

I think many people on the forums would be satisfied with screenshots if you don't have the time to record a video about the payload. It certainly looked to be a very interesting payload from what the most recent video showed, and your designs definitely have a unique appearance that's quite aesthetically pleasing.

@Dakitess I completly agree. That is exactly what keeps bringing me to KSP time and time again. It is challenging though, the game is so damn versatile! :)

I haven't had time to look at your videos yet, but they seem interesting, especially the suspension, which I've heard of but never actually tried to make.

Let's hope you'll enjoy then ! :)

Btw, I forgot to say that this last craft, the massive launcher, is available to dowlnoad here !

http://hangar.kerbalspaceprogram.fr/?showcraft=413

Since it is a french Platform, just follow me : first, hover your mouse in the upper right corner, on the altimeter-ish (which is in fact the number of downloads). Then Something shoud show up, and you'll have a big green button untitled "TELECHARGER" which is the french translation of "Download".

Here you are, .craft is yours !
