I think I going insane crazy ! I swore there was some discussion months ago about Nertea Restock - style foil variants for the Ranger probe cores ? I ve looked through the thread and I can t find any discussion relating to this , could I be mis-remembering ??

Engine Plume is not visible with some engines does anyone have an idea how to fix it? 

Please let us know specifically which engines?

I have two minor plume issues, can anyone confirm? The Inon engine mount shows no RCS plumes, and the Leo "Gus" thrusters show a translate forward RCS plume, but not an engine plume with the throttle.  I'm on 1.11.2, BDB-github. Waterfall RCS plumes seem to be working fine on other parts.

Fixed both on github now.

I'm also missing plumes on the LR9107-167 (will log a github issue)

I cant reproduce this issue. Tested both versions of the engine.

Stream done, some progress on the LM. Mesh is in a much better place now. More greebles to add and lots and lots of texturing to do yet.

Amazing! Even though it is still WIP

Mostly finished M1. A few tweaks still needed and the emissives for all 4 engines still pending but they're approaching completion :)

Featuring Beale's Cardboards Jeb for scale.

All of the RL10s , RD 180, A-7 , F1 , J2 , both the LM Engines and all of the LR engines. 

This sounds like a bad install to be honest. Please remove BDB and all its dependencies and carefully reinstall everything in the release bundle. If the problem still exists please provide a screenshot of your gamedata folder, and a copy of you module manager.configcache which is inside your main KSP folder  Kerbal Space Program/Logs/ModuleManager.

Please also confirm which version of BDB and KSP you are running.

*CRASH*  

Picks up computer off of floor, makes coffee, cries in coffee.

 

:P

I am kidding!   But that is my level of "want" on a certain set of beautiful engines.   :D

I has planz to show why the Saturn II INT-17 is a joke.  Can't do it without the RL-20 being it is an HG-3 analog.

Oh and Saturn II INT-18 + 3 segment SRMU FTW! :D

and congrats team on the incremental update :D   Some well needed changes

Wait there is M-1sl ?

Eh, there were lots of proposals for what to do with M-1.   Sea Level,   Very large Expansion bell, I think I saw a document about Airmat extending bell as well but going from memory on that.

Saturn II was a series of 3 proposals..   I wrote a quick and dirty history piece about 16 days ago on it.  

Saturn II INT-17 was the "Theoretical" potential with a new "Theoretical" engine that was called HG-3 in ONE series of papers.   As TJ and Zorg have pointed out, there was no real HG-3 just a bunch of papers theorizing on engine of such and such performance could be built and one company called that engine HG-3.

INT-17 would be a S-II stage with 7 "HG-3 Engines"   And a standar S-IVB stage.   both the S-II and S-IVB stages would be at a reduced fuel load.   And the stack could launch an Apollo Capsule into LEO much like the Saturn IB but cheaper (assuming Saturn V was still in production)

INT-18 is a standard S-II stage with 5 J-2S or J-2S-SL engines, and 2, 4 or 5 UA-1204, UA-1205 or UA-1207 SRMs.   Full fuel and depending on ground lit or airborne lit J-2s could lift a heck of a lot more to LEO than Saturn IB or even the ETS Saturn IE and IFs could

INT-19 is the same as INT-18 substituting up to 12 Minuteman TU-122 engines for the UA-120x SRMs.   The Payload would trade fuel load again (none of the INT-19s would fly with a full fuel load, just like the INT-17 and SOME of the INT-18 combinations)

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturn_II

 

Oh and a 4x SRMU(3seg) booster for an INT-18 would be a giant lifter... Almost the Payload capacity of Saturn V by my estimate
