[1.X][1.2.1] Heat Shield for the Mk1 Command Pod (16/12/2015)

Recommended Posts

This is a simple Module Manager config that adds a heat shield and ablator to the Mk1 Command Pod. I made this for myself after seeing the pod appears to already have a heat shield, and I thought, "Why not put it to use?".

No pics, no clicks, I know

Is it actually on the bottom of the capsule or all over the place?

I'm not quite sure, but whenever you are reentering, the bottom part which is supposed to have the heat shield is facing the direction of travel, so it really doesn't matter.

Whoa!

Right before I've seen this mod, I was trying to build an orbiter in RSS Career, and could not fit all necessary components in 30 parts limit...

The mod makes my pod textures completely black. Any workaround ?

The heat shield config is missing two lines. Adding these into the "ModuleAblator" module config will do the job:

charMax = 1
charMin = 1

DOWNLOAD IS CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE DUE TO KERBALSTUFF MIGRATION

See here: https://redd.it/45xmio

Kerbalstuff now exists as http://spacedock.info/, but it is currently unusable and many of the mods are missing, including this one. I'm waiting to see if it will be restored; if not, I will re-upload it.

Download now available: http://spacedock.info/mod/63/Heat%20Shield%20for%20the%20Mk1%20Command%20Pod

Could you do this to all other stock pod's?

They could, but the other stock parts don't have the right shape to look like they should have a built-in heat shield.

It's just a small cfg file. i don't see why not. But the version on spacedock is the light ablator/part blackening one.
