[1.5] KOOSE mini reentry pod aka escape pod


Recommended Posts

Currently testing a version that seems to have the capability of becoming an external command seat after deploying via KIS.  I can't seem to get a backpack plus available as seat inventory though.  But if I mark it as non-carryable, then it is available, and apart from not being worn as a backpack, seems to function.  My first go at RCS placement was hilariously bad though, nasal powered.

Also, I don't think I'm going to be able to add a parachute.  Parachutes are always separate parts in KSP due to how they function.  So this may always require a Gagarin landing.

Personally have been unable to use the "inflatable pod" yet. the RCS thrusters seem to only induce rotation, can't control in the least and about the Gagarin landing, I don't see how you can even exit the pod. Will try again with the default astronaut suit, maybe that messed something up? IDK.

Not this Gagarin I hope ;)

May be Kerbal would be able to use own Parachute inside this Seat...

It seems no aerodynamic glider.

Not *that* Gagarin, no.  Although, if a spin starts up, the effect may be similar.

The original plan was a chest mounted parachute pack.  I might have a look at a second KIIS parachute.  You can't activate the kerbanaut's chute when in an external command chair.  

There's a nice write up of the MOOSE as the number 1 in this count down that captures the essential qualities https://www.cracked.com/article_19545_6-terrifying-emergency-escape-pods-that-arent-worth-it.html

Yes. I know Yuriy landed on own parachute.

Is "crush up foam" doable? You may be able to increase impact tolerance. And buoyancy. And viscosity.

I want as well such emergency rocket extinguisher engine as KIS usable tool. ;) Doubt it is possible.

What parameters of EVA Kerbal can KIS object change except appearance?

I really have no idea.  This is the first time I've messed with it, and I'm basing my "knowledge" on what does or doesn't function in game.  And what options there are in the config files of course.
