[1.9+ I guess] VX Series II Engine Pack


Recommended Posts

Randazzo,

Have you considered providing lower thrust versions of any of these engines, similar to the old Impulse and Big Impulse? I found that with the older version of the mod, having a 40 kN 1.25m engine and a 120 kN 2.5m engine was the most valuable part of the mod. It enabled lower thrust engines in a larger form factor, helpful for transfer stages or unmanned probes. Now all the sizes and masses for vacuum operation are very comparable to stock. I fully agree that bigger bells should be included, but a lot of the value in these engines was a form factor that eliminated the need for fairings while still allowing lower TWRs in upper stages.

The old pack should work just fine if you prefer those engine models. You can find it on curse still: http://mods.curse.com/ksp-mods/kerbal/233482-vanguard-astrodynamics-vx-series-stockalike-engine

Scratch that, see below.

VX Series II has been updated to version 1.0.2

  • The Omicron and Sigma engines have been modified so that thrust is being generated from the Monopropellant nozzles while in Monopropellant mode. Previously thrust was being generated from the location of the main nozzle in either mode. This was an oversight.
  • The "Impulse" and "Big Impulse" have been added as optional Legacy parts. The entire original VX series is still available for download, though it is no longer supported and will not be receiving updates. By adding these parts to this pack, I will continue to support them.

Apparently these still work in 1.4.1 despite my valiant efforts to abandon them, in case anyone wanted to know.

Love the "I Guess" on the version.... nice touch
