What purpose does the separate nose cones serve on the front of the outboard engines?

covers the Retro rockets

So on the Subject of the S-IVC(NASA)   I did another dive down the NTRS rabbit hole.   Found document 19680020292  Which comes up every time I search for S-IVC or S-4C...   Has the lunar HOPPER...

The one man Hopper is propelled by it's LEGS like a Kangaroo!   

Looking over the info... it is not a vehicle I would want to ride... also heavier the the Rover....

the four outer legs are basically springs to keep you upright while adding to the "jump" force....     The fact that some engineer thought this was a good idea... sheesh

Could that be the same as this, just better informed?

Potentially they are competing projects... 

 

I really should check the link you provide before I reply :D

The Lunar Leaper itself is not in my report but every other piece of art work/drawings is.  So yeah Same thing!

 

Fun part about the report I cited...   has the Fortran simulation program in the end... so if anyone has a Fortran IV system and has the punch cards to make the program... you could run the simulations that said this was a good idea yourself :D

More parts. I'm gonna need a bigger computer...

Had the same thought a while ago :D:D Modded KSP was one of the reasons for upgrading my PC so heavy this summer that the upgrade became more of a complete new system xD

@Cobaltwolf: Your modding can become costly :D;) Thank you :D

I'm getting around 18GB of RAM usage when I load in then it settles to ~14GB of RAM.

And my rig is overbuilt AF. I've got an I7-10700k, 32GB of RAM and a 3070TI.

"Nice" amount too, i get to 22-24 at the moment.... yes i use planet packs and yes i use a lot of mods. It´s around 18 after the loading.

Next up either vertical lunar SIVB or station with Skylab sized modules

Nice one :):) I like it :)

I use JNSQ, TUFX, and TextureReplacer. And my rig still runs like butter. Gonna try and make some space stations in a few days so I'll see how well it takes that.

I have 8 gb of ram. My pc is over 10 years old and wasn't bleeding edge when I built it.

Uhhh hey @Zorg

The new S-II fairings look really nice, however can I ask one small request? Would you be able to add a B9 switch to remove this truss from the middle of the 4.25m and the 6.25m fairings?

It’s nice and it works well in lots of situations, however I think quite a lot of situations would benefit from just having the outside ring and the fairing.

What kind of situations?

I mean when I was making the S-II Wetlab that I posted on Twitter earlier, I wanted to have the top LH2 dome exposed so I can build on that. However when attaching the fairing, it completely converted the dome with a Truss. I tried to get rid of it by clipping the fairing in, but then half of it was in the fuel tank.

Other people may have reasons too, but that’s a main one for me.

Can’t wait to get around to finishing the proper BDB Pegasus.

Speaking of probes n stuff: do you happen to have a roadmap specifically for the pioneer 10 collection? just don't want to ask about stuff that's already on the to-do list.

Was it intentional to remove the scaling function for the revamp branch Saturn fuel tanks? It is still there for the engine mounts and interstages, but not for the fuel tanks themselves. I was trying to recreate the Saturn C series with the new stuff but couldn't scale the tanks.

Pioneer 10/11 stuff is all modelled, textured, and balanced. Just config polishing and other work like that is needed. In terms of official release, RAE is the last probe I'm doing before I release all currently made probes as an update. After that I'm going to move on to Pegasus.
