I don't use any updated AIES install - I have old version with some new code to repair animations:

Mars reentry from low orbit generates almost 0 heat - at least in KSP. From interplanetary speeds this trick would not work.

Guys, I know its not the thread for asking a question like this, but I rly wanna start a RP-0 career, but the beginning is kinda boring for me... Its kinda hard getting science at the beginning, except by building planes (which is kinda tough with procedural wings).

@winged Also irl ?

You should ask about that in the Science & Spaceflight section.

The Atlas launch vehicle family is one of my favorite. So let's spam this thread with some of the variants, starting with the Atlas LV-3C Centaur:

good replica...

And it is still missing a lot. Proper avionics pods and conduits, along with a better paint job are only some of the things that require improvement. But i am trying to keep them "RO - stock" (i.e. no custom parts or textures) so it will suffice for now.

@Phineas Freak Very nice! Where did you get that nice bottom plate you put on the Centaur stage? 

 

I just built this rocket for a flyby mission to Saturn with a Jupiter gravity assist. I also intend to use the same rocket to all the other future flyby missions beyond Jupiter.  It has 4x H-1/RS-27 as main engine and 4x LR-101 Vernier engines for attitude control on the 1st Stage, a J-2 Engine on the 2nd stage, a LE-5 Engine and 4x LR-101 vernier engines used again on the kick stage, their gimbal and high vectoring range provide a very steady alignment with the burning node even at high acceleration. The payload weights 339 kg

Here is some picture from the test launch in simulation:

Just a little update from the actual mission: The TJI went smooth and the spacecraft is en route to Jupiter and with a slight correction maneuver, to Saturn:

@Epox75 it is all Procedural Parts (from top to bottom). I gave it a "Thermal Blanket" texture (from FreedomTex) to simulate the MLI.

Really nice work on that launcher! Always love to see proper application of interstages as engine fairings and proper tank/engine interfaces. The payload interface is also really good!

My low-tech manned moonshot in RP0 career (January 1957). One man kerbal to the Moon surface and back.

Launcher "Triumph":

3 stages: 11 E-1 (USA) engines on 1-st stage; 5 RD-108 (USSR) on 2-nd stage and 1 RD-108 engine on 3-rd stage.

Payload to LEO - 44t; payload after TLI - 14.2t

Start mass - 1368t

There, that's one of my favourite lunar launchers from now on. One: it looks awesome, that's a wonderful take on the "four engines around a single engine" cluster. Two: it isn't completely based on N1s or Saturn Vs. No F1 first stage and J2 second and third stage. Well done.

Small update: I'm starting to play KSP again. Been hooked on War Thunder for the past month.

The Lavochkins are very great, in my opinion. All I want is a gun platform that doesn't wobble.

But we digress. This is an RO thread after all.

my first attempt at making a "real" blueprint, technically this isnt an exact replica but to me trying to squeeze everything i can out of a Tiny Tim boosted WAC Corporal, built with starting parts in RP-0 career, that i can still fully recover:

27aJYnt.png

Can this be improved even more, with starting parts in RP-0 career... without parts burning up/breaking off and fitting inside test flights time limits, still allowing full recovery? please suggest/improve if possible... maybe body/nose shaping ... i'm stuck at this point.

 

edit: maybe fueling the winglets/fins and trimming body tank abit could save a few Kg's?

I'm thinking you should make this more aerodynamic, using structural fairings. But this looks very nice for a sounding rocket.

I see people still reply to this! Let's keep it up.
