Both the Kereb H decouplers "default" variant is broken, it doesn't appear "goldish anymore like the other Knes decouplers it appears white.  Springs are unaffected.

@Well I'm about to start a new contract playthrough and am interested in making KNES and Luciole my main parts mods for it. Do you have any recommended contract packs that work especially well with your rockets?

I'll probably make JNSQ my planet pack. Stock contracts don't play well with resized systems; rescues and satellite launches can end up inside the atmosphere.

I don't play on rescale system, so idk what contract pack you could install, i'm pretty sure something exist for 2.5 / 2.7 scale.  I see so many people playing this scale!

You need something about sat launch, or space station.

Thanks. I'm going to give History of Spaceflight a try - accomplish USA and USSR mission objectives but using your parts (instead of BDB and Tantares).

Some props (item for IVA) Don't have always the same texel density compared to IVA.

Hard to said something with your screenshot (too low res). Check Your KSP setting, texture scale need be on hightest setting if you don't want them pixelised

Keep in mind IVA are generally a bonus, they already use a lot of RAM compared to spacecraft, i can't make them at really hight res. This is what you are supposed to have :

!! Awesome video, thanks for sharing this, love the landed moment with all surface features, -10 point for using knes only for the launch :sticktongue:

Originally, i was planing to use MRK for service module but the deltaV was too low for returning to earth:

H20TUaDl.jpg 

 

The second design was a Hermes version. Like the URSS N1 rocket, the last stage will serve for moon orbiting, the hermes should have only served for return, the re-entry had to be in two stages: one for decelerated and one for landing. It's was too heavy for the launcher so i cancelled it.

I decided to use a CTV like service module since it has enough deltaV and was lightweight enough for the launcher.

For the lander, i wasn't able to found any esa manned lander concept, only unmanned for moon village ( give me some idea for other video ) so i make one original.

@josselin2196 Can a vulcain engine be use in vacuum in reality? Since you use one as transfert stage?

@Well Is there a way to make the MRK docking ports compatible with the vanilla ones?

No they don't have the same size, they are actually compatible with Habtech2 CBM docking

In theory yes, but in practice the engine's nozzle will need to be extended otherwise the engine will be very inefficient in vacuum.

 

@Well The H2 "Crinkie", HM60 "Themis" and the HM7 "Zebulon engine" have the same problem that the vulcain has, the bare variant can't be connect, it need to be attach in default then switch to bare variant. I notice when playing with NF Launch vehicle engine mount.

Damn.. ok so i suppose that the same issue, the node exist but it is upside down, rotate the part 180° it could probably attach, and use rotate tools to make it on the right side. I open an issue on github for a future fix. I actually play with my mod (don't happen a lot lol) so i see by my self many thing that need to be fixed. Thanks to help me to find those little problem

Cool new mod to try.

Did StarWatcher intended to fly with no service stage like Hermes? It doesn't seen autonomous from the inside.

The original design is from the X-38 CRV, wich is only a life boat, if i remember he don't even have a real life support, the idea is just to land as quick as possible.

But I really like the idea of having a service module behind it for a real spacecraft, for EVA / Engine / Propellant dock or other stuff. That make a lot more sense tbh. But in fact all depend how you play with it in game.

Same for the Star Rider... some idea :

I'm going to play with the design on my career soon.
