PSAs regarding the thread 

Spoiler

PSA # 1: Due to real-life commitments (School, Sports and Other Activities) taking most of my time, I am unable to consistently play KSP on regular basis :( .  Because of this, Craft File Development or Updates to pre existing Downloads will most likely irregular and not occur on a regular fixed basis.  If anyone has any questions regarding any of my existing designs, I will try to stop by the forums if I have time to answer questions.

LATEST CRAFT FILE UPDATE:  Febuary 5, 2017 @ 9:30 PM PST (12:30 PM UTC) 

Dawn Industries & Technologies is a conglomerate comprised of:

  • Dawn Aerospace
  • Dawn Space Systems
  • Dawn Industries Land Systems
  • Dawn Communications Systems
  • Dawn Shipbuilding Industries 
  • Dawn research labs 
  • Dawn R&D works 

All of the craft and subassemblies posted here are built with the stock Aerodynamics or Hydrodynamic model, and all are made 100 percent of completely stock parts or Squad produced mod packs such as Asteroid Day. While most of my designs are influenced by real-life aircraft, spacecraft, boats, ships, or projects concepts, they are in no way meant to be replicas in any way.  These craft are built for function over appearance.  If aesthetics can be implemented as well, that's great, but not to the extent it compromises functionality or significantly hinders performance or usability.  The designs in this thread were not just thrown together to look cool.  They are meant to have practical KSP applications ( ex. Kerbal Exploration Initiative (KEI), Capsule Recovery, Space exploration Space Mission Communications, Crew/Cargo Transport and Science Data production and collection,), and are thoroughly tested to ensure deficiencies in design are found and corrected before the craft is published on my KerbalX account. Each craft has been tested throughout multiple conditions, altitudes, airspeeds, fuel/payload amounts, and other testing conditions to find out where their limits and potential for improvement are, where I can improve them and where they perform best. 

Although this thread started out being focused on ships and aircraft, Dawn Industries & Technologies now includes designs for almost all parts of the stock game   As my "fleet" of craft has grown and continues to grow, I have decided to set up naming conventions to eliminate confusion and clutter in the thread. I also have organized my craft into categories to 1) make the thread easier to navigate 2) to reduce clutter and time spent to find a craft. 

I'd like to thank @katateochi for his amazing administration, great support and incredible maintenance and development of the KerbalX website and for creating the KerbalX mod. The mod is a great tool for people that design craft and who want to share them with the world like me who would like to do that while they are playing KSP and designing craft or subassemblies. The kerbalX Website, Is an amazing fan-driven site that allows community members to exchange craft files of many different types form spacecraft to subassemblies for use, modded or stock. if you're love using the KerbalX site, please help support it by donating via links on the bottom of the main KerbalX page, it allows Katateoochi to keep the site up and running.

 I'd also like to thank @Raptor9 for making some really great craft and inspiring to make my own craft, and release them on KerbalX, and also answer my many questions and other people's questions about his craft. Check his craft out at his forum post Raptor Aerospace. it is a craft showcase containing over 150 different craft ranging from space capsules to modular space stations, modular exploration vessels, and to planes and to Rovers. In addition to @Raptor9 and @katateochi I'd also like to thank @Azimech for creating the first turboshaft Helicopter and many other amazing and interesting craft,. check out Azimech's craft thread forum post here on the forums.

here are my plans for the next week regarding Nimitz. 
  • Add bow thrusters to bow of Nimitz
  • Develop landing craft for nimitz’s well deck
  • Test vehicle loading ramps
  • Test launch ship and test all systems.
  • Test launch RHIBs, UAV, ROVs and the K-29Bs
  • Test speed, range, and maneuverability of ship  
  • Determine COM and COT and ballast nimitz accordingly
  • strut/ or auto strut anything needed to be strutted to prevent the ship from breaking apart and exploding on launch or during mission.
  • Design and add crane to nimitz’s deck
  • Test landing and recovery system for K-29B and UAV operations
  • Test recovery system for ROV operations
  • Test capsule recovery procedures
  • Test capsule recovery cradle and associated equipment.
  • Test science collection and examination equipment
  • Test flight deck and design procedures for flight operations
  • Test well deck and design procedures for amphibious landing operations
  • Add docking port to serve as refueling point for ship

Hey evryone i updated the OP and put 2 New spoilers in the at the bottom and 1 at the top. The first of the  bottom 2 spoilers are for my craft file naming conventions and the second is a glossary of all the terms I use in the thread. The spoiler at the top contains any of the PSA's for the thread.

so i'm going to be designing a few new craft over the weekend and over christmas break called the expeditionary Mobile Base it will be based of the ship of the same name in service with the US navy.  this is what its based of off https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USNS_Lewis_B._Puller_(T-ESB-3) i will also be desining a transport vessel bassed of the spearhead JHSV used by the navy to support us millitary missions.  here is a link about the JHSV https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spearhead-class_expeditionary_fast_transport
