Will get screenshots momentarily. Just need to build it with the un-tweaked parts to show what I'm on about.

Also: shouldn't the Communotron 42 & Communotron 04 antennas be combinable?

Okay. Here's my screenshot.

Ghidorah Parts Orientation Problem

Right. In this case the strongback + fairings are rotated wrong. Idealy you want the back side of the rocket facing the door of the VAB. That way you are oriented right on the pad.

@damonvv Why is Ghidorah a 2.5m design if it's clearly a falcon 9 clone? I was expecting a 3.75m design, like the real life counterpart. Otherwise it becomes near impossible to launch the thing of an earth like planet (with orbital velocity of 7800 m/s) with any kind of payload, even after adjusting for KSP's insane dry weight and similar things.

Because this isn't supposed to be a 1:1 replica? It's designed for a 2.5x size system and not RSS, although someone correct me if they can

It used to say in the OP that this is stockalike. I think I accidentally removed it with an update. Will fix that. But yeah this is not a 1:1 replica of the real thing. RO patches are being made but takes time.

Hey Guys,

I have a problem. if I want to start with Ghidorah 9,

It will not generate enough thrust. The rocket doesnt take off. What am I doing wrong  ?

@nickel could you provide any details? Are you using RSS? Have you tried it with no payload? What mods are you using? :) 

We cant help if you dont give details :)

Hi, I do not know why. but now it works. I have felt for the 100th time a new clean installation made.

Presumably, some mods did not get along with each other.

Thank you anyway ;)
 
Everyone of you uses the flight manager for landing the boosters ? Or Kos ?

I use FMRS myself. Not kOS. FMRS works pretty well (not in 1.7). you just have to be careful when using FMRS as if you don't use it properly it might break some things. So be sure to read the forum thread!

So i finaly decided to make an forum acount, but thats not the main thing! im just here to send some ideas:

1.The Dragonrider concept, it could be relatively easy to make, the only new thing that would be needed is an edited pod and maybe some thruster pods.

2.The Falcon 5 concept in its final days, from what i read its an falcon 9 1.0 with 4 engines removed and partial fueload.

3.The falcon 1E.

thats about my ideas, or i should say ideas.

oh and this is an nice mod! :)

Remembered falcon 1E exited.

Cool ideas!

1. This might be something I will consider. It was a good looking pod indeed!
2. First priority is Falcon 9 v1.0 and Stainless Starship. After that I may consider this!
3. See 2 (Although Falcon 1E only needs a bigger first stage tank. Easy to make) ^^
