[1.7.x] Tundra Exploration - v1.6.0 (August 17th) - (Re)Stockalike SpaceX Falcon 9, Dragon V2 and Starship! RO Compatible!

Recommended Posts

Will the latest version of this mod (bfr/starship) work with rss ro in 1.3.1???? Id like to do some feasibility tests to see what this starship is made of but my version of rss ro is perfect right now for 1.3.1

That's for you to find out and share so other folks will know for sure.

But I'm doubtful as it's I think I've seen it used in RSS in 1.6, meanwhile, features from dependencies such as B9 Part Switch, may be missing or may behave differently back in 1.3.1.

OK I'll give it a try tomorrow. I already have the f9 and dragon/dragon2 I just want this freaking starship and run through the launch - refuel - tli injection - moon - back.

This is obviously just a re-textured version of @damonvv's Gojira II :D

Thanks to @Nessus_ for making these awesome smokescreen configs and @JadeOfMaar for the actual plume particles.
This will come in the next update! (Expect it soon after KSP 1.7 drops (whenever that happens)).

Is this for a realplume config, or the default plumes? These are so much better than the stock plumes that now I want @JadeOfMaar to make a stock plume revamp mod or something :sticktongue:

Really looking forward to the update! :D

Yeah, @JadeOfMaar, make us one :P 

And this is a smokescreen config. No need for realplume. It uses custom plumes made by Jade. (which are included with TE (but also in PlumeParty))

Hey @damonvv I have a question for you...how do you time when to start your landing burns with the G9? I always end up starting too early and going back up, or starting too late and destroying the landing pad.

EDIT: I've also been having some problems ever since I reinstalled Tundra...the Octopus engine cluster makes no sound when it's activated, and the engine flame animation plays all the time, regardless of whether the engine is off or on.

Did you remove Tundra Tech too?

I'm having the flame animation glitch as well.

I don’t use TT...just TE. And I make sure to always delete the mod folder before I reinstall.

No smokescreen or realplume. I’m on 1.6.1 with the latest version of Tundra.

I can probably get a log file tomorrow if you need it, I’m not at my computer now.

Only the Octopus engine cluster. It shows engine flames all the time, but has no sound when it’s activated.

Install Realplume and it should be fixed. I am working on trying to resolve it so you don’t have to install realplume.

Okie dokie, I've always wanted to try out RealPlume anyway...so I will give that a go. But I look forward to the official fix! :)

EDIT: I tried installing RealPlume...it did fix the problem and didn't cause the huge perf hit that I was expecting :) I even got this nice screenshot from it.

Nice! I will try and fix it for people that really don't want realplume/smokescreen installed.

The Antenna configs could use some tweaking. The antenna type in the crewed command pod should be DIRECT, not INTERNAL - internal antennas don't allow science transmission. Plus, antennaPower is too weak. Since both the pod and the engine shroud have antennas, it's probably enough to increase the one of the shroud to 100000000000 (same as the communotron 88-88 and the RA-100). Otherwise, CommNet blacks out soon after you leave Kerbin's SOI. And maybe the antenna type of the shroud should be RELAY.

Noted and I will take a look at them!

I have the same but my save files and logs are way too heavy to send to damon. If you don't have too many mmods installed pls send your logs tohim, because this problem was supposed to solved on the last update. And Make sure you delete the mod file before replacing it by the new.

Note that there are small nozzles on the base ring of the rocket, and we don't know whate they are, docking clamps for refueling? RCS ports?

 

For those who want to build a Starhopper, take the base of the Gojira, put landing legs on it. Then put a  fairing to make thhe dome and put a probe core and a reaction wheel inside the fairing.

Add one or three raptors to the base and you are good to go.

For original Starhopper, replace the fairing and what it contains by the cargo variant of Gojira and you're good to go.
