[1.12.2] Knes 1.9.8

Ohhhh I did it!

The trick was simple. As stock (and stockalike) KSP tanks don't have real partition between oxidizer and fuel - and as fuel is some generic "liquid fuel" - I tried to simulate the density of liquid hydrogen part of external fuel tank with a sctructural tube.
 

I present you the CCTS - Cursed Callisto Transportation System, using Knes and ReStock+

Only green part is fueled (well, and small slice at bottom)

It flies, well, not perfectly - but it mimics STS flight profile.

The only small  hitch I had is that I totally forgot to add landing gears and chutes...

Congrats :D

i've made some shuttle style launch but i'm not a specialist of this config, but maybe that could be great to share some craft sometime!

Tested a target module for early career with Viking pod. Using inflatable airlock, i love the idea.

The module is small enought to fit early rocket.

i don't even want to think about the framerates on this flight :D Nice config!

10 FPS max, 308 part, 2 FPS when the rocket shake due to P120C G acceleration when close to depletion, booster based rocket are a nightmare in KSP and auto-launch mod, i wonder how real Vega handle that, the fairing must be well designed to negate sound and vibration for the payload.

@Well

Do you remember these parts?

1.3] Lockheed Kerbin CEV 0.1 [2017-06-03] - Add-on Releases - Kerbal Space  Program Forums

I know that it's not in the scope of KNES, but I can't find a good download of this.

Would it be possible for you to release this separately or at least send me the files so I can use it for myself?

I successfully recovered v.0.1 [2017-06-03] archive. Its license allows redistribution(CC BY-NC-ND 4.0), but say "ok" or "not ok" just in case.

If someone have it, you could put the file online somewhere i allow it, just respected the licence.

From memory the last KSP supported is 1.3 (not sure) if online i'm not going to make any support for it.

Here it is. https://disk.yandex.ru/d/cUGJnRmZ_C7oQQ 

1)Converted the textures to DXT5, it's allowed by license bc it's a technical modification https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0/legalcode#s2a4

2)3 MM patches in a separate folder(again, license), they fix outdated RCS module, add 1.11 inventory and add Waterfall if you have Waterfall.

Have fun! I had already, testing this.

Playing Kerbalism and always had issues with the ATV to properly supply my ISS. So I sat down and wrote a MM patch for Kerbalism and the five ATVs, trying to mimic their payload as much as possible. It is working for me in Stock Kerbalism, as well as JNSQ Kerbalism. Just the dry mass payload above food you need to add

Gas tanks are duplicated, to allow Nitrogen or Oxygen. There might be better options to structure the PartSwitch, happy on feedback to learn.

Leaving it here, for anyone interested.

Thanks to you for Kerbalism player. (could you edit your post to use "spoiler" to not have the full config on the post, some people read the forum on phone)

Hello again! Finally got a taste of StarWatcher which has became my go-to option for crew rotation crafts (on a VERY cursed restock-powered fully reusable launcher that is really  an SSTO), and have a question: how do I use paraglider properly?

 

Right now I go for "better safe than sorry" and put two of them in mirror symmetry over the top at the center of craft and deploy them at 500-700 meters above ground with almost horizontal speed of ~250 m/s, but the time frame where I can actually glide anywhere is rather small. After like about ten seconds the craft just starts to gracefully descend, and all I can do is unsuccessfully burn all my monoprop to get closer to the runway. Am I missing something?

If you don't have the mod "RetractableLiftingSurface" the parafoil work exactly like a classic chute. If you install the dependencies you could play with a steerable variant but that not so great(work like a giant wheel), really difficult to play with it. But that the best we could have for KSP, Parafoil are not something we could have.

The StarWatcher could perfectly land on the runway, he have enought lift, but need maybe some practice. That how i land it ( dump all fuel before landing).

For career, if you really care about Security and don't want to land on the runway, i suggest for StarRider and StarWatcher to use 2 or 3 parachute (MainChute "Vega" is a good choice) in this case you could even remove landing skid and just land in the water.

If you use the version  with RetractableLiftingSurface. My standard re-entry is when entering atmosphere with a re-entry angle inferior than 45°:

  • point 30° up compared to prograde without go further 20° in navball
  • when prograde is at -10° -5°, point to 10°
  • at 700m/s point a little up compare to prograde
  • at 300m/s point prograde without let it go below 15°
  • open paraglider at 200m/s
  • direct craft to the ground using standard approach for plane, be careful to not brutally change trajectories and watch out for the vessel which tends to point downwards
  • at 10 meters retract paraglider
  • Landing!

You can delete Parts folder, but you should leave Patches (it contains patches that add fuel switch to tanks) and Localization (contains text strings for aforementioned patches).

Yeah, that's what I ended up doing. Just the plugin didn't work.
