Quick progress update/screenshot dump on Orion:

Solars use Breaking Ground robotics to slew forward/backward. If you don't have BG installed they will function as regular solar panels without the ability to slew them. 

Stage adapter comes in 3 sizes, 2.5m, 3.125m and 3.75m (service module adapter is a separate part):

Currently hoping to release before Artemis I launches. 

Still to-do:

  • Parachutes (main & drogues)
  • Service module length variants
  • Flag decals
  • Simple IVA
  • Specular textures
  • NASA docking system variant for APAS
  • Tweaks, balance, testing, part descriptions, config stuff
  • Compatibility patches for waterfall + TAC LS
  • Take a nap

nice! (little question though will this break compatability with the kertemis and konstellation mods?)

If the existing orion parts get deleted from reDIRECT then it would break the compatability with the mods

Could this shrink to something suitable for the Orion-lite concept? (unfortunately all renditions of it are literally fan-fiction)

Yes, I have a half-length version of the service module that should make for a decent LEO Orion/Orion Lite.

The current plan is to release this as a separate mod, kertemis etc. would still work with reDIRECT.

Would it be possible to have a switch to remove the solar attachment points, because some of the Orion proposals used basically the same service module with different solar and RCS arrangements?

The RCS nozzles and solar panels look like they're still going to be separate parts, so that shouldn't be a problem. 

Not the solar panels themselves, but the 4 pegs that they lock into that are places around the panel (best seen on the fifth image).

Those pegs are part of the solar panel part and can indeed be toggled off!

I'm loving the new Orion mod, thank you.

One suggestion for your consideration though I would recommend moving the SM aero panel nodes to the SM to allow for compatibly with SLA type adapters.

With this remaster of the orion parts, does this mean IVAs are coming?

I do plan an IVA for Orion yes. Idea is to make it quite simple but relatively easy for someone to config to RPM/MAS if they wanted to.
