[1.4.5] Cormorant Aeronology - Mk3 Space Shuttle

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi!

I love your mod, ive used it so many times in the past. The github upload for your temporary update, does not work for me. I have tried installing it several different ways in my Gamedata folder, but parts do not show up. The readme does not have install instructions. I have also looked back a few pages but I did not see anyone have this issue.

 

any ideas?

 

thanks!

Oh. If you download the zip from github, open the Cormorant-Aeronology-Master folder then drop all those folders into the Cormorant Aeronology folder in your game data.

I'll see about changing the file structure on the github in the future so there's just the one folder like the release versions.

May i ask do you only work with the American shuttle and its variants and the buran or are there plans for other craft.

if you have added the shuttle block 2 and the shuttle block C shouldn’t you add somethings on the Russian side to make it even like the spiral project or the energia II.

You can build Buran, just not an Energia - Yet. Someone who has a pinned thread this month has one on the docket.

Can't wait for your IUS to make a proper STS -26

@Abpilot I'd say there's always likely to be more US stuff just because of my general interests, but I do happen to be working on a Russian project right now. I wasn't going to mention it yet as it'll probably take me a long time to finish, but I'm making parts based on the LKS to be used with Beale's new Proton. The max payload is about 1.875m so it'll make for a nice medium sized shuttle.

@Drakenex Got a bit demoralized with the engine effects breaking, but I'm still plugging along. Here's a little progress shot of the Orbus 6

That's STS-26R, not STS-26. STS-26, more commonly referred to as STS-51-F, was a Spacelab mission.

After NASA transitioned to the STS-[FY][Launch Site]-[Yearly Mission Count] system externally, the internal count was continued. This resulted in discontinuities as STS-10, 12, 15, 16, 18, 21, 22, & 29 were cancelled. Even though there was no STS-29 originally flown, Post Challenger, STS-29 still received an R suffix, just like all of the missions up through STS-33R and -31R (31R flew after -33R, as did -32R).

SO I kinda felt for Pak with the way the new 1.4.1 screws up the effects . Before anyone kicks off , i'm not trying to tell anyone how to , or diss Pak for his epic mod , just thought i'd chuck me hat in the ring an maybe be helpful .

Full Description of what I Did is inthe About part of the Video .

@Puggonaut That looks pretty good actually. I may end up using that or something built off of it. Thanks

Either way you inspired me to dig into the issue more and I was able to solve my problem. With 1.4 it seems like some of the effects are ignoring the parent part's scale in unity and looking at the original 3d file instead. My stuff was all based on a unit-less size from way back when I started this mod in 0.9 or whatever. With whatever changed in 1.4 that scale for those effects decides it's 10% so making the effected engines 10x bigger in 3dmax make the effects match the proper scale.

 

Anyway I'm going through and fixing that stuff. To celebrate here's some more progress shots of the IUS

Daylight4449,

Generally speaking most Mods will have the KSP version in the Title of the Thread...so "[1.4.1] Cormorant Aeronology - Mk3 Space Shuttle" ... [1.4.1] is the KSP version, but remember a Mod may required some mods that not be updated yet.

I can't get it through CKAN, as it says it requires firespitter, which isn't updated 8qHjN9K.png

There is no Block 3. There's the Block 1 (Space Shuttle) and the Block 2, which is the fancy one with the CERV cockpit.

It's the Mk3 Block 2 Shuttle.

Mk3 is the size, Block 2 is the iteration.

does not let me change texture, could this be a mod conflict?

Maybe? First I would check if you have multiple versions of Firespitter (multiple dlls or a dll and a Firespitter folder). That's usually the cause. If that isn't it I'm not really sure of anything that is incompatible with FS.

 

Added the Block II Shuttle to my craft files for anyone interested
