Now you're just showing off!  Small yet beautiful.

Edit: I'm referring to the part of course ;)

That looks beautiful! What experiments are in that part? I'm assuming that fold-out piece is an accelerometer

@Daishiand @MaverickSawyer, thanks. @Daishi I've said it before but it's worth saying again: Amazing work.  Thanks for the effort and your dedication to improving KSP.

Not a problem, thanks for being a fan :D

Y'all know this mod is all about the little things ;)

Looks like the gravioli detector up top, and the accelerometer below.

Yep, spot on. I don't see the point of dedicating a whole wedge bay for such a minuscule piece, so to make it fair we've started merging things like Dmagic did originally. So coming up in the next release, we'll have the combo Gravioli Detector\Seismic Accelerometer, the dual Mystery Goo unit, the combo Thermometer\Barometer unit, and the double-high Advanced Material Science bay. Bit burnt out with these so there won't be a Fluid Spectrograph yet, but there's room on the atlas for it so I might make it later. Still got a bit of work to do on these (mainly the normal maps and getting the spec maps right) so they're not 100% yet!

Hey there!

The 1.875 diameter fairing for the bay storage isn't in my mod pack.
I redownloaded, loaded, and reloaded the mod, but still no fairing. I will keep looking here in case someone has posted the same issue but wanted to get this out there asap.

 

I hope you can help! Amazing mod!

There isn't a 1.875 cylindrical fairing available in the current version of the mod, but it is on the to-do list.

Has anyone noticed (on Version 1.5.1.8 and KSP 1.5.1) that the PEM Fuel Cell tends to shake craft apart when attached to the 4 core module?

Edit: Fixed the issue, looks like it was the version of Kerbal Joint Reinforcement Continued (3.3.5) I was using, switched to Kerbal Joint Reinforcement 3.4.0.4, and it stops the shaking on the pad and in most instances in orbit.

I do not have KJR installed at all, and I am seeing very similar behaviour with the tank module attached to a 4-way core. The tanks appear extremely keen to get out of the bay, so much so that they will fire outwards in a curious spinning dance until the attachment breaks. If autostrutted or otherwise restrained, they cause the entire craft to vibrate.
I did notice that they clip into each other slightly when 4 are installed on such a core, but that doesn't seem to be it as a single tank exhibits the same behaviour with the other 3 slots empty.
All module height variants were tested, but not larger cores, as this is an early career game. Can check other parts in sandbox if required.

I'm not sure if this is simply an instance of the notorious physics bug with heavy parts connected to very light ones or not, but it makes the otherwise phenomenal tank wedge unusable for me.

This is 1.6.0.9 on KSP 1.5.1, logs are clean FWIW.

Thank you for the quick response!

So there isn't a replacement or workaround right? It simply just isn't ready and 1.875 diameter storage isn't an option for the time being? I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything.

Just realized that was a dumb question. I guess I'm just concerned because I started a science mode game and am nervous once 1.875 is added it won't work or something but I bet it will.

 

Thank you for the amazing mod, and I love the revised version, btw.

AVC is showing that US2 has been updated to 1.6.something but ckan still thinks 1.5.something is the newest.  Any plans to update that?  Am I doing something wrong?

I also noticed the UniversalStorage2.version file from the currrent Spacedock download says:

"VERSION":{"MAJOR":1,"MINOR":5,"PATCH":1,"BUILD":9},

The cores that let you attach wedges are super unstable without KJR installed. However as a workaround if you don't use that mod, you can set the core to auto-strut to "Grandparent" and that will fix the problem.

I usually do that to both the core and the fairing and it is quite stable after that.

Huh. I've not had any issues with stability, or the lack thereof.

 

Then again, I do tend to use autostrut to grandparent rather heavily.

I'm looking into this issue at the moment, I think I know what's causing it and hopefully should have it fixed for the next release.

There is a 2.5m to 1.875m tapered fairing that will take the 5 bay core, but nothing in that size for cylindrical storage.  We know it is a highly requested part though and will aim to get it released as a high priority.
