[1.3] The Malemute Rover [0.2.0]

Recommended Posts

Introducing the Malemute Rover!  

Based on the Mars rover from 'Last Days on Mars' (great rover, horrible movie), this pack includes parts for cargo, geo-science (no more awkward Narrow Band Scanners sticking out!), crew transport, and general shenanigans.  Over a dozen parts with full IVA support.  Interconnects with other USI bits and pieces, and can be configured both as a rover, and also a really sweet biome hopper or VTOL.

Have fun!

so that's where you disappeared to! not a 100% on the name (what is it?), but, this looks nifty as my karibou got pretty big! many thanks.

edit:

wikipedia indicates you picked a clever name, both a sounding rocket and a huskie? touche:)

Thought that was a misspelling originally, though I guess its correct for the sounding rocket (which I had never heard of before).

 

Looks great, immediate download haha! Yet another must have!

P.S. The stream of you modelling these parts was very informative.

That's relative to you not using the proper attachment nodes :wink:  They are there for a reason

Just out of curiousity, I know the Karibou used to have clear glass (that was with RPM IIRC?).  Neither the malemute nor Karibou seem to have that anymore.

Not a big deal.  I always liked being able to see through the glass although it kicked the crap out of the FPS when doing so.

I'll be doing the new JSI transparency support now that it is not part of RPM, but have to also mess with the glass textures

Also RE spelling - since I had to answer this a few times :)

I'm originally from Alaska - and we always spelled both the dog and the tribe with an 'e'.  Folks in the lower 48 might spell it differently tho :wink:

No, there is something going on with mini-wheels. They always blocked regardless of node choice on Malemute, attaching them to Buffalo MMSEV (pic 2) chassis either results in sick flips or wheels simply sink into ground and twitch constantly.

Also, congrats on release!:)

Huh - looks like a bad version of that wheel made it into the release - I'll sort that :)

Really not appropriate for stock tbh.  But you can use it right now in 1.1.2 :wink:

 

(I'll check out the wheel and the career issues once I get home this eve)

There's a capitalization error in the part configs for the TechRequired node.  In the affected configs the "r" in required is not capitalized.
