It adds retro rockets, buoys, and airbags into stock command pod and command pod of other mod.

And they will automatically deploy when certain conditions are met.

I like the general idea - but honestly, the fact that it's integrated into the command pods deters me.  My action menu is long enough on them already, and I do regularly build ships which *shouldn't* have this functionality in the command pods.  I'd rather it was a couple of parts that I could add as/when needed.

does this apply to the other capsules in fasa?

Since it explicitly states in the OP that it currently only supports the FASA Apollo pod, and a few others, I'd say not.

All you'll need to do for Tantares would be to add retro rockets for the Soyuz capsule and probably airbags/floaties for the VA capsule.

Basically a few questions about the used models of the floats and airbags.

Is it possible to adjust the position and the scale of the parts for the capsule type used?

The idea of your Mod I think is excellent but would have to be clarified before whether an insert in my Mod would be possible.

Best regards from CONTARES

I will try to solve this problem, a standalone pack maybe?

I'm working on that now, but I think that's no airbags or buoys on VA capsule. Only retro rockets for Soyuz and VA.

No, you cannot adjust the position or the scale of floats or airbags, its proportion with capsule will look very strange if that happens. But you can use TweakScale to rescale the whole capsule, or maybe rescale the part of the standalone pack after it released.

Are there any plans to add parts for probes? So we can do some airbag crash lands.

Is a good idea if use the part of the standalone pack, because probes are not always needed to come back and landing.

Oooo nice! Does this work for the Ven's version of the stock pods?

Yes, I wrote a CFG for Ven's version.

This certainly seems like a very cool and interesting mod. I hope I'm not being presumptuous or anything, but if you're looking for ideas, I wouldn't mind seeing a Mercury landing skirt or a Gemini landing bag system for the BDB parts.

Really cool mod, though. :) 

 

I have planned to do them, don't worry only need a bit of time.

any chance of a gemini airbag for BDBgemini-8_landing.jpg

I just answer this question above. :confused:

I think @hraban means to ask: If your capsule is, say, 1.25m, and all your buoys/airbags are for 2.5m pods, is there a way to rescale the airbags/buoys to half the size?
