Stop, you're making me feel bad about planning to build a ton more US launchers :P But what other ones are there to do? Tantares took care of Black Prince / Europa, Black Arrow and Ariane V... You have Ariane 1... What more is there? Do they have any more proposed stuff?

Hey, hey! We still build some of our own stuff. The only important lifter I know of that uses Russian engines is the Atlas V.

If you're thinking of doing Japanese rockets, some more 1.25m lifting SRBs in the vein of M-V would be cool.

Antares use two Kusnezow NK-33

Yes, i plan to made japanese rockets. Unfortunatly i'm not a great friend of the solid booster system of KSP.

The Ariyana (Ariane) project miss, like the River (Angara) project some parts.

Nice mod pack! BTW will you ever release .craft files?

It's possible to release .craft files. but why. Is it too difficult to piece together the few parts?

M-V is making great strides.

Looks good but the blue is very bright + saturated. Most paint in the game is somewhat desaturated.

No stress, the Texture is not ready yet. The blue is one layer and can be changed with any color.

Has anyone bashed together remotetech configs for these antennas? I may if/when I have the free time, if that ever happens... :( But, if someone had already, hey....!

I looked through the thread, but I didn't see anything. Thanks!

Also, really cool mod!

Remote Tech i have not been used. If you could provide suggestions and a corresponding configuration file would be excellent.

If all version changes have been completed and all parts work, there is an update to the next weekend.

Honestly,

I do not like the new patch. For some reason, no longer defined Collider was being used. Instead, the mesh objects are interpreted as convex mesh colliders. That sucks.

Is there a way to correct that?

Constructive suggestions?

Well, you only really need non-convex colliders for hollow parts. KSP 1.1 will not support non-convex colls anyway, so we can already upgrade our colliders. Now, if you have hollow parts, there's a rather simple way if going around this: You simply use basic meshes, apply a convex collider on those, and put them so that your model is covered with those. I've placed up to 14 basic colliders on one of my Payload Fairings, and there's no performance loss, since those basic ones only need very few memory. Also, parts which used non convex colliders before wil no longer glithch through other parts or "flow" through the ground.

I hope this helps you! :)

That makes a lot of work, but it works.

Well, the next update must then make do without these subtleties.

Thank you Kartoffelkuchen!

Today still stand at a couple of craft files and subassemblies.

For those who for thinking too lazy and those who are themselves unable to cope with the operation of a screwdriver ;)

This is a case of noncommunication match. :wink::D
