@TiktaalikDreaming so i just looked and i dont see the parachute nosecone OR the coupler... are those new to 1.3?

They should be there. The only changes with 1.3 were to add a title field to the manufacturer. That said, I haven't actually checked. I'll check shortly. The decoupler should really definitely be there. It's not unknown for me to stuff up and forget a part in packing up a mod though.

hey i don't know about this but i have a suggestion.... maybe you could do some of the turbine engines (turbojets, turboprops) that the germans were producing or planning to by the end of the war, turning the pack into some sort of ''late war german aeronautical fantasy pack'. i have a couple of books with metric ton of data for even the unbuilt engines, just something that popped into my mind.

@TiktaalikDreaming, i DO have UbM, RT, and CTT... so it might have gotten arranged somewhere completely pointless? (the a10-a4 fairing is in the third tier, while the rest of the a10 is in start...) ill take a look in sandbox mode and see if i can find do it there.

@halowraith1, that would be a massive package... the flying wing/wedge, the extended agregate-series, and the heli prototype (that would have never gotten off the ground) to name a few... nice idea, but thatd be a lot to do, and then to download

I dunno. jet engines are basically just tubes in terms of modelling; even less than that if it's just the exhaust section. i had a go myself not that long ago and it didn't take too long to make something accurate, albeit of low detail. somehow they never appeared in the parts menu at all so i gave up.

anyway, the idea of using underpowered, unreliable engines has always appealed to me somehow, and the german jet engines of that era (built or not) were nothing but underpowered and unreliable, save for a couple.

actually, it was the texturing i was talking about... seems most modders, especially the better ones, try to be acurate in the details... and the engine parts (and intakes for many of them) would be a lot of different textures, and then the individual stats to keep from having multiple identicals with different skins... dont get me wrong, id love to see a package of ww2 engines (especially the Me- and Ju- plane engines), i just don't see it happening any time soon...

TechRequired is completely wrong on the decoupler.  I think I might need to go through all the configs and fix a few things up.

    TechRequired = largeVolumeContainment
    title = A-12 Interstage frame and decoupler
    description = This goes between the A4 Engine and A10 Fuel tanks

One or two things.  Per part.

 

Regarding jet engines.

I'm not averse to adding them in, but I feel I should at least texture the existing parts before moving on to new ones.  And, this mod is one I'd like to keep the RO config up to date with, so there will be no jet engines without accompanying realism configs for, so I'd need some fairly solid data.  The one "jet" engine in the mod, the A-9 ramjet, was a serious pig to get right with realism overhaul.

alright, if you do decide to add turbine engines in, send me a PM or something. i have a bunch of books with stats for most german turbines, some of which were unbuilt (fuel consumption, airflow, etc)

I seem to be missing parts heres my list

That's pretty much the parts.  It looks like I accidentally copied the non-functional nose wheel into the release mod, but apart from that, the part list looks pretty right.

No tweak scale needed, in fact I doubt tweak scale works with it.  If you have firespitter core, you should be able to colour switch the A-4 parts from post WWII yellow/black for testing to plain green.  But there's no tweakscale config.

Parts for the A-4 aka V-2 numbered from top to bottom,

Should look a bit like;

There's no code, just parts.  The only way it will cause a crash is if it's the last straw, pushing you over a RAM limit or something like that.  If you can provide a log, I can let you know what went wrong.

I related news, I've renamed the "MEM Side Heat Shield" to "A-10 top cover", which seems more appropriate for a cover for the A-10.

Thanks for letting me know.  I accidentally left 7zip in bzip2 mode.  Uploading 0.16b, which uses stock standard zip-deflate

Craft files?

... are a good idea considering there's only really a few ways of putting these together.  Hopefully some time this weekend.
