Vulcan
This is the next generation rocket from ULA

Includes:

  • Tanks for Centaur and ACES
  • A main tank
  • BE-4 first stage engine
  • RL-10 second stage engine
  • inflatable heatshield
  • parafoil
  • fairings
  • interstages

Issues:

Do not make the lower engine fairing the first part of the craft, I don't know why but the BE-4 won't be able to gimbal.

If only smokescreen is installed so no realplume the engines will give particles even when they are off.

Mods that use firespitter give problems because they might use a different version of firespitter.

Great rocket!

I've some modifications, mainly PF fairings and hydroloxsized the ACES + RL10. A little request :P, I know that's the promotional images livery, but can you please make an orange main tank?

Thanks!!

Orange?!?

Come on the whole idea is that this rocket is all American so that's why there is a flag on the main tank

@Superpenguin160 Good job! Is this stock scale or RSS scale?

This is stock 2,5m it was a bit to big for 3,75m so I will include a tweakscale config later on if you want it bigger. (And maybe a ro version)

I didn't say I needed it in 3.75m, I was just asking if it was scaled down from IRL scale or not.

Sorry didn't mean it like that:P The Vulcan is bigger than the Altlas V so it was for people that have an Atlas V mod installed. They probably want a 3.75m Vulcan. I said this for people that come later, they don't have to ask it then.:)

Vulcan's flight variant will look like Atlas V. Same as how the SLS promo images showed it white for a long time before they said ' lol no its going to be exposed SOFI'. Paint is heavy yo.

But, all along, NASA knew that they would not paint the SLS.

@Drakenex I'll try making an orange tank when I have time

Ok I see one orange image and I also couldn't believe they would paint him like that. So I will definitely make a orange texture, thanks for the tip.

IIRC Atlas V isn't painted on the first stage. Neither is Delta IV for that matter, but that's exposed SOFI so it's a different ballgame. But no, there is absolutely zero chance of Vulcan flying with that paint job :D

You can't say that , That's why we have kerbal space ;) we can fly them and make them look good well some times , Some times they end up just like NASA boom :/

ULA Vulcan rocket parts pack woking to 1.2.2?

Yes

So, Atlas V core is 3.81m in diameter, and Vulcan 5.4m, so for a KSP 2.5m Atlas V the Vulcan must be 3.54m, and the closest "standard" sizes are 3.125 and 3.75. What do you say?

oh! it's not much, but is hot:

@PART[BE-4]:FOR[RealPlume]:NEEDS[SmokeScreen]
{
    PLUME
    {
        name = Hydrolox-Lower            //pre-fabbed plume you want
        transformName = thrustTransform //which transform to attach the plume
        localRotation = 0,0,0
        localPosition = 0,0,3.8
        fixedScale = 1.6
        energy = 1
        speed = 1
    }
    @MODULE[ModuleEngines*]
    {
        @name = ModuleEnginesFX
        %powerEffectName = Hydrolox-Lower
    }
}
