Best Shuttle?

Recommended Posts

Well, after playing for stock so long, I decided to add a challenge and go ASET IVA, love the instrumentation and the cameras!

Added mechjeb for boring automated stuff, plus I hate when you have inactive stuff in your new IVA panel :) , but lets face it, NASA flys by computer, do why not at this point?  :)

Ok, so then I found CXA Aerospace aprts, love the APAS, etc. But ...

I have no shuttle and arm to go really build up a station, I was "Launching" parts by using rnv cheat to place 150m and then docking, but witht eh realism of the parts and ASET IVA, I'd like to go for a real time station assembly as the new way to enjoy myself.

Current mods installed in 1.3.1:

ASET, CxAerospace, RPM, mechjeb, DPAI, prob control room, SCANsat, and vessel view.

 

Any recommendations? 
I know for most I'l lbe adding more dependancies, but with to give this a shot.

 

Thanks beforehand.

 

Marc

I'm sorry, but what was it you were asking for? Whole ships? Mod parts?

Either really, if there is a whole ship that's great, but to build with another parts pack sounds interesting as well.

For the CxAero parts I'd need a RMS to assemble one on orbit.

Okay, then sounds like a modding question, and therefore, moved to Add-on Discussions.

Paks Shuttle Lifting Body and RaginCaucasian/LinuxGuruGamer Mk2.5 Spaceplane parts for shuttles. For the arm, you can use Infernal Robotics.

Space shuttle system mod ...

 

Nice mod!

Questions, more of a use than issues.  1.3.1 ...

In IVA, not seeing mechjeb, latest installed, same for vessel viewer.

 

I finally decided on this shuttle to construct my station, and am using cxaerospace parts. I'm kinda proud of myself getting latest versions of the dependencies installed and working, I have control of the robotics arm, and no issues putting the STS together.

- But how do I go about attaching the cxaero parts to the bay?  It doesn't want to align and attach.

- Do I use the cxaero grapple or the one that comes with the canadarm?

- Can I use the APAS from Cxaero as well? I note the default APAS attached to the docking parts included witht he mod, but nothing separate I can attach to modules, or I'm blind ...  :)

That's enough to chew on for now, launching Unity this PM .... hehehe ...

 

UPDATE: Well strike that, don't know why, but now when on the pad, hn physics eases in I blow up, and the error is related to SSTUreflectionprobe ...

I'm not sure how to correct this.

SSTU has one-part shuttle or two. It also has some cool station parts and command modules and lots of customization. You can have a red station if you'd like, custom tanks, lots of new solar panels, etc. SSTU is designed to provide fully featured vessels with minimal part count.
