The modular ideas of engineers.

The 3rd stage of M-V and Epsilon is in progress. It's not so easy to build a extendable Nozzle. Take a closer look to the mod "Cryogenic Engines" from Nertea.

Hope all have fun with the new parts of version 1.5.3?

Lookin cool! Why do they have different engine / RCS setups if they use the same service module?

The Service Module need scale engines. The scale engines use the same fuel as the RCS (KSP-like Monopropellant).
On the picture the engine-module was rotated, so you see in one picture one, in the other 2 nozzles.

The CTV is looking very nice, does the built-in RCS work?

Sure, the RCS system works perfectly.

Beagle has to let me have the PPTS alias Tucana Pod. Who would like to take this further should follow this [B][SIZE=3][SIZE=4][URL="http://www.hraban.de"]link to PPTS[/URL][/SIZE][/SIZE][/B] and download the mini-update.

Hurray! Tucana lives again.

Don't you already have something very close though?

Hi all,

this weekend i work on:

1. Revision of all colliders so that external and radial parts fit perfectly again.
2. Work on the H2B rocketlauncher go ahead. The first-stage engine still requires the approval of another modders. If this does not agree, it takes just one week longer.
3. A study for a tourist capsule which, by the way, proves that 5 Kerbals fit very well into a 1.875m capsule.

[quote name='Foxxonius Augustus']Kerbalstuff doesn't like me downloading Contares. Any chance you could get a second mirror up?[/QUOTE]





Excuse Foxxonius Augustus,

In this case you have to apply a little more patience. I'm happy to put my mod at KerbalStuff available for downloading. Other mirrors will also need a more effort for maintenance. Besides the fun to create parts for KSP i still have a privacy and a job.

Would you consider to separate your mod in two packs like Tantares (like Contares and Contares LV)?

The division between launchers and payloads, as well as other small parts will surely come.

I didn't mean to impose. I know that all the work that modders put in is voluntary and I am thankful that you put time and effort into making this game even better for a great many people. It's just that I would like to download your mod. I have tried kerbal stuff every few days for a while now to see if the issue resolved itself but the download always fails. I don't have this issue with other mods on kerbal stuff. Anyway I will keep at it as your mod seems to be a good one.

Purty rockets. I will say though - the abundance of circular windows on the tourist modules is a little... creepy looking.

Give me advice how to make it better would be without to move around a bulky frame?

I'm not entirely sure what you mean. I think making them have rows of rectangular windows would be preferably to a bunch of round windows, which look strange when used that frequently. Though looking at the Haas rocket details it seems like they look like that on the real one.

Correctly recognized! Although the dimensions of the window do not match 100% with the models, so nothing has changed on the number and arrangement. Sure, it looks a bit weird, but it's not my idea;)
