There will be a stock blue solar panel option.

Could you do solar arrays, like in HabTech V1?

Uhhh.... see the post above yours

Meanwhile for those who can't wait for the IVA's, you can use HabTech-1 and a little patch.

//Simple patch for iva

@PART[ht2_moduleUnity]:NEEDS[HabTech]
{
	@INTERNAL
	{
		@name = habtech_nodeInternal
	}
}

@PART[ht2_moduleQuest]:NEEDS[HabTech]
{
	@INTERNAL
	{
		@name = habtech_airlockInternal
	}
}

@PART[ht2_moduleLabNode]:NEEDS[HabTech]
{

We are officially one truss section, two radiators and a bit of greebling on P6 away from a release of the truss/solar array portion of the mod!

Will you include the craft file once you finish the parts set?

Yup, Tantares will be a dependency for that though. Though for me, part of the fun is figuring out how all the parts go together...

There's something fun about that too, but craft files are nice for coherence. However, I've always wanted to follow the entire assembly sequence, so when you make the Z1, please make sure P6 can mount on top of it, or other temporary attachments; but I think that's the only strange docking to be aware of.

Yup, my intention is that the IRL assembly sequence should be able to be followed. The only concession to that is that the S5/P5 truss is integrated into the solar array as a variant in order to enable everything past the SARJ to rotate together. As far as I’m aware everything else should be able to go up in the order intended - that’s why the solar arrays are independently retractable etc.

Actually took a few minutes to play KSP tonight and grabbed some screens (feat. Restock & reDIRECT):

Also ironed out most of the bugs with the SAWs. GitHub pre-release will be relatively imminent!

Looking really good! Can't wait for these trusses!

How to connect trusses in flight?

There are dedicated truss docking ports. The upcoming dev version will feature switchable port shapes so they sit flush.

How long away are you from being done?

Tentatively aiming for a dev release on GitHub this evening (this will just be the updated truss ports & solar array wing), providing I can squash a couple of bugs and polish up the models/textures. Additional stuff will come next week at the earliest (Z1 truss, big radiators, more truss variants).

Good, cause im in the middle of an ISS build, and i am kind of relying on the habtech1 parts

Just downloaded and install the 0.1.8 update @benjee10... The Solar array's and ports are awesome!!! Can't wait for the Z1 piece... Looking forward to a proper ISS again. 

Great Job M8... This add on is a must have in my book!

@benjee10 Question on the solar array's and launching and docking...

Your thinking to join them in space...

First put up the first array with the bottom set to "Alpha Rotary Joint" and straight connected to a ST-200-2 truss with a T-400 in Hex mode, top node set to "Truss" and a T-400 set to "Semi Hex" to dock the second solar array to that.

Cause there's no way to get whole thing up there with a shuttle...

The intention is that you use the T-400 port set to bare (or the circular bearing variant that will be coming in a future update) to join the two solar arrays together. A solar array with top node set to truss and bottom node set to alpha rotary joint will just about squeeze into a shuttle bay when connected to a ST-200-2. Unfortunately an orbiter docking system won't fit in at the same time, but due to limitations with KSP it wouldn't be possible to have the S5/P5 truss segment be a separate part (as it is IRL) and also have realistic looking dual axis sun tracking. 

 

But yes, for those who haven't twigged, the solar array is up on GitHub for testing! Have fun and let me know what you think.

The Solar Truss doesn't have surface attach enabled.  o:

That's because it spins - anything attached to the surface wouldn't rotate with it.
