The NK engine family does not have gimballing capability since, as other users mentioned, the N-1 LV used differential throttle for steering. As @Pappystein also mentions, OATK had to create a custom engine mount for Antares that includes gimbal actuators, moving the entire engine structure. Now, under stock KSP there is absolutely no way to manage either of these things. So, you cannot blame @Alcentar for his decision of adding gimbal transforms to the engine. Hell, even under RO we configure them to have gimballing, even though in reality they did not have such capability!

(I could also make a case of the wrong S5.92 engine gimballing. The Fregat US, similarly to Antares, moves the entire engine and does so in the X-Y plane, not by changing the thrust vector angle. Something that is also impossible in stock KSP and difficult to achieve with IR.)

You are right, but it may be worth making two versions, one classic NK-33, and the second AJ-26 ?

This would be like the stock 1.25m engines - one with gimbal, one with no gimbal.

Except NK-33 and AJ-26 are much better looking engines.

Yes, it really will be similar to stock engines. :)

Are these decently balanced vs stock engines when RO is not installed?

It works in RO and stock.

 

By the way, in our family there will be a replenishment. :P

Where do I put the RO configs??

They are MM cfgs, so they can go anywhere inside the GameData folder
