What you get with Contares?

All objects are created as accurately as possible on a 50% scale.
50% scale means 1/2 of the size, 1/4 of the thrust, 1/8 of the weight.
Further adjustments are due to the physical properties of the Kerbal universe.

Reference diameters are 0.3125m, 0.625m, 0.9375m, 1.25m, 1.5m, 1.875m, 2.2m (ESA Parts only), 2.5m, 3.75m and 5.0m.
Inquiries regarding diameters are superfluous by the effort of simple head calculations or a calculator.

Fuel tanks designed for use with Contares LH2/LOX engines contain significantly less fuel. Fuel tanks which do not contain an entry for LH2/LOX in the description as well as all stock tanks should be set to 30% Liquid Fuel/Oxidizer when combined with Contares LH2/LOX engines.

Regarding the arrangement of parts in the techtree there is certainly still much to steer.  This work i am glad to leave to ambitious users because i personally have no interest in career or scientific mode.

Recommended mods:

- Installation of SSTULabs (only to use the excellent Solar Panels but the complete mod is very nice)
- Installation of DMagic Module Science Animate (Allows the creation of animated scientific experiments; temporary not used)

Required mods:

- Installation of RealPlume (contained engines use this engine effects mod only)

- Installation of RetractableLiftingSurface (Module which allows you to have a folding wing or other retractable lifting surface; used on Paraglider and Baikal-Booster Wings and Dream Crusher Wings)

How CONTARES should develop:

- Creation of more helpful parts

Specials:

This mod is made for Kerbals on a Kerbal world, not to recreate anything from the human reality in perfection.

Thanks to:

@fwdixon (RemoteTech MM patch), @Beale (initial advice), @CobaltWolf (suggestions for textures), @Well (support on Dassault Hermes and Ariane), @Cheesecake (for some TechTree  and RemoteTech support), @Rissa (Patch for 'Connected Living Space')

Use your imagination!

Contares Rules:

Rule 1: Do not ask of others something you would not do yourself.
Rule 2: The desire for mod compatibility must include the readiness to act for this desire.
Rule 3: If there are more complex issues to discuss, ask me via PM in my native language German.

Would you consider using ASET props for functional IVAs when you get to that stage? No rush just wanted to know if when the time comes you would consider it. Looks great :) so far! Depending on how Beale handles the Gemini this may be have the pods I want. HAve you considered a big G extension to your 2 man pod?

I confess, from the development of IVA's and possibly functional elements I'm still miles away. Time will show whether and what it is.

Regarding Big-G I appeal to my quote from the introductory text: Existing reverse engineering makes only limited fun. Zwilling will get extensions. Which? Let's see what I can think of.

These are nice parts, very nice, indeed. However, you call this an add-on for Tantares, but I can't see any reason to get both this mod and Tantares, all the parts in this mod appear to be either direct copies or very similar recreations of Tantares parts.

Forgive me if I sound rude or condescending, this is simply my opinion.

It'd really stand out if you made an Atlas V or a Titan II/III, or other missing launch vehicles from Tantares!

Other than that, very nice job on those textures, is this your first modeling project?

Forgive me if I sound rude or condescending, this is simply my opinion.

I started with the logical development of the Tucana of Tantares, therefore, it is probably no coincidence that these parts look like.

K1500 developed spontaneously from a discussion of a command pod for 2 Kerbals at 1.5m diameter. It is not a copy of Spica.

The project will grow.

I build Parts for a Kerbal world. It is possible that one or the other part inspired on real models, because it is a logical consequence.

No it's not my first 3D modelling project, but my first with Wings3D and UNITY. For creation of textures i use Paint Shop Pro 8.

After much thought, one milestone of this mod is to go to modern rocket systems like ANGARA. The implemented main engines was named on german rivers like MAIN und NAAB. More to come to build an ANGARA-styled rocketsystem on kerbal physics and kerbal design. Not with the goal to rebuild the ANGARA in scale.

I honestly thought this was a new member Tantares ripoff, but I'm wrong big time! I always wanted a good ANGARA rocket!!! Looks GORGEOUS Hraban!!! I hope you make IVA's for other Tantares parts. :D

Last pic kind of looks like the engine block of a falcon 9 1.0, minus 5 engines. Could be an Ariane 1-4 first stage engine block tho.

Oooh Vader I think you might be right about the Ariane. Sweet! I don't think we have one in game at the moment.

EDIT: Hraban can you send me a psd or tga or something of the Zwilling texture? I want to try something with it.

@CobaltWolf ... done

@Darth Trololo ... 50% right. An incorrect initial reduces the achievable rating.
