Next the MLS version will target a Munar orbit.

In MLS config, the Altair pod is launched with the stack (sold separately in SLS config)

Direct Munar injection targets 1000 km Munar orbit. EMLV II Snacks Plus serivces station and EMLV III Orion transfers crew

Chaka's Answer:

Okay! so..

Thank you for your interest in Chaka Monkey Exploration Systems.

Persuant to your request for download capability we have spot checked each link and found they work perfectly.

Also our records indicate tha the pack has been downloaded on average 100 times per day by users around the world consistently since the last update as well as today.

We apologize for any download charges you may incur due to your situation, however invite you to find a different connection to the internet through which you may download and enjoy Chaka.

Regards and best wishes for safe and happy downloading,

What does Y.C. stand for? I do wonder if it is or isn't Yanfret Chaka.

If this worked with RO, I don't think that any RO players would ever get bored.

â–² Actually coming this fall there is going to be a reality TV show in which the blue team is assigned to making it work in RO and the red team is assigned to building all the rockets in real life, to see who gets it done first

Can I exchange those 5 cookies for an RO version of CMES? :)

Why don't all you that are wanting a RO CMES take it up in the RO thread ? As they would be better at changing the CFG ?

I personally find the RO thread to be a little daunting. I guess I feel more welcome here. Plus, with so many parts in CMES, adapting it for RO would be best achieved with Yanfret's participation.

What if Yanfret's don't use RO how would he help ? Unless he installs it and plays around with it and that eats up time so someone that already know about RO would be best.

EDIT- RO jacks up the CMES scale bad someone would have to go through the whole pack and rescale it.

EDIT- And sounds like you use RO why not give it a try ? And help out ?

I was actually thinking about picking one of the CMES craft files (probably the SLS Block I), and seeing what I could do about it. No promises though

What is the Altair ascent capsule for? Or is it docked after ascending from the surface of the moon?

Orbit management, debris avoidance, and as a robotic transfer or emergency crew vehicle. In it's shown config, orbit management would be the primary role. However, as needed it could autonomously un dock, transfer to a crewed ship in a nearby orbit, and return docking to the habitat section, without the need for station and the other system to interact.

Do u plan on making an IVA for the Orion Capsule?

Theres a stand-in, made by the guy who made the ASET mod. Its got lots of pretty computers and buttons that all work and is really great. It only has three crewed seats, though.

In the misty future, Yanfret expects there to be a custom-made Orion IVA that fits more than 3 kerbals and (I think) is true to what we can expect for the real Orion's capsule interior

How do you mean? Like will there be instructions? Yes :)

This is just the test flight. Imagine how great it will be to send it up with SLS and a mature exploration habitat stashed in the trunk

I mean having a MM patch to use it together with KIS

but thinking it through, you could always use the 2.5m container that comes with it... however, using yours with KIS would be cool :D

Is this some kind of a joke that I don't get?

Why is everything so insanely heavy and outside stock balance?

LES system, purely esthetical in KSP - 10 tonnes. 3 man crew capsule - 10 tonnes. Docking port 1.25m size - 5 tonnes. Structural nose cone with no fuel in it - 2 tonnes. Habitation modules - 40ish tonnes.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?

It's because CMES is not a pack meant to be balanced with stock, but be analogous to the real vehicles they represent, but in the stock solar system.

genuine question, not trying to be a douche or anything, but, are you new to mods? have you seen their size compared to stock?

the pod alone is the size of the large tanks (3.75m diameter), this pack isn't intended for stock, it is at 75% scale and most mods you find that recreate stuff are at 64% scale, not to mention that most mods, even stock-alike ones, aren't balanced for stock gaming

Chaka's rockets are balanced to depict the real vehicles placed into the Kerbol system. So half way to the Moon is half way to the Mun. Sometimes this results in parts that are heavier than you would expect.

In the case of dock ports, in KSP, the rigidity of a docked connection is affected by the relative masses of the dock port parts and the overall spacecraft(s). To allow Orion and other systems to have a rigid docked connection, those ports are typically 5t. Low mass versions of the CBM and IDA ports are also included for situations when structural docking is not necessary.

Orion Payload Expansion Cartridge

(continued)

Its essentially a double service module fairing sized for the MPLM habitat.
