Hey I looked for like an hour and am too dumb to figure out how to install those wicked cool fairings, can someone point me at the post that explains it?

In the gamedata folder of the development versions is a folder called "SimpleAdjustableFairings" , you put this in your gamedata folder .

As penance, here's a cooperationverse TKS-Barbarian with RD-275s:

Also - last call for bugs for the v1.7 update! You don't report it, we don't fix it!

Was Gemini-B retro module fixed? I don't see anything about it on Github.

The bug is that you can't mount retro motors in 6x symmetry on it - it reverts to 4x.

Biohazard, I don't think that is a bug so much as a limitation of how KSP itself was built.   Because KSP does symmetry around the part.   And the 6 Retros are INSIDE it, OFF Center, and each has a unique angle.

There might be an easier way but I build em one STAR at a time.

 

Now I haven't checked the Awesome FAQ about the sequential fireing of SRMs for Mercury and Gemni.  I hope there is a good document on it that explains how to set it up and run it (cause thusfar I have failed in my job of doing JUST THAT!)

How are we supposed to attach big g to the titan 3m because I have made the whole thing from the wiki and am wondering what to put under the docking port to attach it to the titan because on the wiki it looks like some tube.

@Delta dart

I don't think there's a dedicated adapter for it.

I just use a 1.875m Centaur interstage with the Big-G service module. Going from 1.875 to 2.5 meters can be done with the Delta III interstage if you're using the Apollo SM, though I'm not sure if the SPS would fit legth-wise.

To (kind of) fix this bug, you need:

A) change "stackSymmetry = 3" to "stackSymmetry = 5" in cfg

B) notify the user that it would be kinda wonky (you must place the motor at the node which is adjacent to a black box)

This probably can be fixed at dev side (some trouble with nodes, probably?).

For now, I use a MM patch. If it can't be fixed, I don't see why BDB crew can't change stackSymmetry to 5 and put a warning notice into part description.

 

And NO, you CAN"T build them one at a time - because of sequential firing, which requires all the motors to be in symmetry.

Not a bug. 6x was too hard to work with so we changed it to 4x. The official way to build it is to install each engine separately, and then stage as you see fit. Since the nodes are not symmetrical, the engines are installed at the wrong angles when using symmetry. The thrust vectors should all point through the capsule CoM.

The whole thing is admittedly not ideal, and you can't use sequential fire, but we have no better solution.

I don't know if we posted these here yet but in case its been missed BDB 1.7 will feature these fantastic custom Apollo A7L suits made by @benjee10. These will only work in KSP 1.10 onwards.

Also take note the the dev branch has been discontinued. Latest updates are now on Master.

Delicious suits,i can finally make a Apollo 1 incident replica.

perhaps you can make these suits work on 1.9.1 with..... TextureReplacer?

@benjee10 could also add those oxygen tubes as seen here.Apollo 11: Wild facts about NASA's moon-landing mission - Business Insider

Its worth noting that people making these suits have to work within the limitations of the Kerbal model. We can only use textures, cant add more geometry. Some types of features might not look so good when attempted just on the texture with a bump map.

if anyone can get it working with TR please send me the configs and I will add it to the extras folder.

OK. I hope that changes for KSP 2.

I think I got it working with TR. I will have to look over it more though

Can you explain how you quoted Zorg's message but with resized images? I feel like I'm not the only one who needs this info :P
