great little mover.

as others have pointed out, though, the upper stage doesn't fire through the center of mass. it yaws left and rolls down.

Just a few problems I've come across:

Like others have said, it's an absurdly imbalanced mod — a fully built rocket has 8 km/s of ∆v. Far too much for LKO.

Also, the lighting and reflections seem... odd? The surfaces seem too smooth and shiny compared to stock/stockalike parts. Not a huge deal, but aesthetically out of step with the rest of the game IMO.

It also needs a better flight model in the atmosphere; as it is it flies like a mix of an Extra 300 and an F-22.

This is more a nitpick than anything else, but the older alcor IVA was much more functional and useful, if not as aesthetically appealing. Also, the navball prop doesn't work for me in the new one. :( Is there a way to bring the older IVA back?

I started a new career last night and one thing I noticed is that the left and right wings are not on the same science node. 

that must be why the Dreamer yaws to the right. its right-hand wing is MORE ADVANCED!1!! :D

Just a warning, you don't want to use stability assist whilst in the atmosphere because the craft will try to shake itself apart!

P.S., the mod parts look absolutely gorgeous, great job OP.

Has anyone had issues getting the dreamer's rear docking port to dock to a standard in-game docking port?  I have tried everything I know how, but still does not attach, or even try.  Also, I am fairly skilled at docking, done it several times, so alignment or what not is not the issue.  Any ideas would be helpful(still KSP 1.0.5).

I took a brief look at the configs and it looks like you'll probably have issues with the wheels and KM_Gimbal. Last update was for 1.0.5, and the download link still works (it's in plain text format, points to curse). License is GPLv3.

Otherwise, most of this should probably work fine.

Does the config file for aerodynamics still work for this craft or does it flip like crazy during reentry at 33km...?
