What spacecraft capsule is this?

Looks like @Ledenko's old Apollo capsule but I'm not sure.

If anyone has downloaded the Super 25 in the first few hours it was available, please replace your files with the new version. It had some errors in the config.

I do recall the only problem I experienced with this mod was that the heat tiles on the Super 25 were super glossy. Nice and matte on the little guy, but glossy as heck on the big guy. I know it's a very small thing, but I do hope you guys take a peek at that at some point.

I had a lot of fun with the KSOS Super 25, created 46 mission chronicles for it, and designed my old Multipurpose Colony Modules mod to fit inside the Super 25. Nice to see the mod returning to active duty. :)

Awesome! watch out for the cargobay heating bug on the basic shuttle parts (energia was fine for some reason[more mass?]) in the cargo bay] I encountered this on my unofficial attempt at a community fix [

Haven't played around with this yet, and super excited to give it a go again! Has anything been changed with this release? I remember last time I used it, it had heating and control problems in re-entry.

 

Secondly, here is a config that @ozraven wrote that adds the stock cargo bay config modules to the KSOS.

@PART[cgholdkso]:FIRST
{
    !MODULE[FSanimateGeneric] { }
    MODULE
    {
        name = ModuleAnimateGeneric
        animationName = Take001
    	startEventGUIName = Open Cargo Bay
    	endEventGUIName = Close Cargo Bay
    	actionGUIName = Toggle Cargo Bay Doors
     	allowManualControl = true
    }
    MODULE
    {
    	name = ModuleCargoBay
    	DeployModuleIndex = 5
    	closedPosition = 0
    	lookupRadius = 1.8
    }
    MODULE
    {
    	name = ModuleSeeThroughObject
    	transformName = fuselage_cargo_door_left
    	shaderName = KSP/Bumped Specular (Transparent)
    	screenRadius = 1.0
    	leadModuleIndex = 5
    	leadModuleTgtValue = 0
    }
    MODULE
    {

    	transformName = fuselage_cargo_door_right
    	shaderName = KSP/Bumped Specular (Transparent)
    	screenRadius = 1.0
    	leadModuleIndex = 5
    	leadModuleTgtValue = 0
    }
}

@PART[KSO25_Cabin]:FIRST

    @dragModelType = none

Anyone have any luck with reentry? I just tried the old landing method and everything but the main shuttle cabin burned off and exploded!

 

I also noticed the super 25 craft file doesn't work unless the smaller shuttle parts are also installed.

The OMS engine is missing from the Super 25 pack. I'll message Naz and let him know.

I cannot believe it! My favorite space shuttle is back!!!!! :)

Edit: I would be really, really happy if someone put nodes on the Dauntless's ailerons and tail flap so I could get the things aligned reliably. :(

For some reason, the IVAs on the station parts are non-existent for me - that is, they are completely transparent (I can see the outside from the inside).

The Orbiter IVAs are working perfectly however.
