@qromodynmc They are like that. Unfortunately, if there's no thrust in KSP, they... stop. :P 

Oh, 0.00000000001 thrust time then! :D

btw made a new racer, wing parts make it so easy! and engine looks cool af.

True enough, the only thing stopping me is the amount of engine curves I'm gonna have to edit. But I do plan to experiment on it at some point, just like the slower startups. Plan is to maintain a really low thrust up to a thinner part of the atmosphere where it should not combust anymore. Not one of the priorities atm though.

Yeah, lot of work to do if you want bit realistic, i once decided to make merlin engine copy from Kax part, single engine config was already frustating, when you try to achieve something, you'd lose something else :D

I'm a bit confused at something.

The Bf-109 engine is about 29 m/s in thrust and it is Pre-Modern.


The I-15/I-16 engine is an Old engine but it is around 52 m/s in thrust.

 

Now I'm wondering how the Bf-109 even caught up with bombers and their escorts...

(No rudeness intended, encase you get confused :wink:)

Well, those configs aren't made by me. But I think that's based on the max thrust on the configs. It differs when performance curve is graphed since there are multipliers affected by speed and pressure. Which means even with lower thrust, it can get multiplied much more with specific speed and/or atmospheric pressure.

Patch 11.1

Small fixes and updated the OP with some fabulous catalog of some of the parts.

@TMasterson5

Changelog:

--------

Buffed all helicopter main rotors to have 50% more from its base power

Fixed no hatch for Size 2 Viewer's Cockpit

Fixed Blank texture for Brand Decal on CFM56 to show up transparent texture instead of white and black

--

Additional changelog not added from last release:

Added ability to search for real names to see specific parts (i.e, Airbus, Falcon, Fighter, etc)

Fixed Size 2 Non-commercial cockpit to have only one crew

--------

@TedwinKnockman66 Some feedback regarding the rotors are much appreciated. I'm looking to improve them.

@blackheart612 did you add any new parts or change the naming of any of them at all?

Nope, I just added the tags to be able to search it. Mostly fixes, I haven't developed stuff so far yet.

Cool the current download should still work fine then but I appreciate the tag!! :)

Just wonderful. 

My two cents: we really need more WING options. The stock modules look ... well not awful but less than good, and we only get a few options of wings. Maybe a next step, instead of tons of different (but similar) cockpits, could be an attempt to diversify a litte bit more our wing and control surfaces options!

Just use Procedural Wings, it makes your life so easy!

tbh i was intensive user of procedural wings before, then i realized how useful editor gizmos are, now i use stock wings only.

easier when you go big, harder when you go small :/

Z-fighting on the inside of the size 2 fuselage parts where they connect:

Great pack btw!

Also, are you still maintaining this?

It only needs minimal work currently - the thrusts and Isps of the stock LVT-30 and LVT-45 are now different to their replacements in the mod, and one of the other engines is off a little (iirc Poodle equivalent having 5 higher/lower sea level Isp).

@String Witch I'm sorry I don't understand the picture. I stopped maintaining KSLO but plan to refurbish the parts to another mod I will make. I'm waiting for Porkjet's rockets to be officially released to base art and model design from there.

Well, I don't know then. I did plan to simplify the design even more. I didn't really start working on it yet. Maybe I'll make an updated rocket parts pack at some point. Though I'll stick to this pack for now :P

Okay. It is hard to see in a picture. Video should demonstrate it a lot better:

-snip-

I understand what you'e talking about now. The reason for that is because the stock design is like that, the fuselage has those small segments protruding and clipping inside. Try the Mk1 structural fuselage, if you stack it, you're gonna have that problem as well. I could have fixed that when I made the parts, but I'm crazy so even that issue, I replicated to my parts (yep, that's intended). So now it's gonna be a pain to "fix". Which I will if people don't like it, just not as soon as I can. :P

Is it Possible for us to get Attack helicopter cockpits? Like an apache or comanche, or something? I think that would be really cool.

Firespitter has a nice apache cockpit. Though, I'd like to personally, I think I need to focus on more parts, other than cockpits, especially Mk1. Look at how much Mk1s are on the OP catalog :P

Lift position of the Wing Connector Type K is very far away from the model.

I'll check and fix this, though, I think I'll withhold patches now. Aside from the fact that I'd be re-uploading a whole mod to patch one thing, the biggest issue is I can't access my curse. My password may have been reset to something else when my yahoo account registered to curse has been compromised. I can't access my curse and waiting for curse to reply on my ticket now. I could upload for a while until I stupidly logged off on my browser where I was logged in a couple of days ago.

good point, im not a huge fan of firesptter parts, but it makes sense this mod has so much more potential to this mod than MOAR cockpits.
