 I'll pay you in hypothetical money-bills.

Guess I'll make some hypothetical parts then!

Also bit of a request could you throw in some swap-able alternative textures to the more traditionally colorful parts to just be grey, black, and white? Like the Probodobodyne HECS2 and the R-12 tank to name two examples. I like my ships to maintain a a uniform color palette throughout the design as a general rule but hey that's just me

No seriously though, scope creep is a huge problem for this mod and unless it's a ridiculously ultra awesome idea, I am not going to add work to the ~100 part plate.

Oh, is this the mod that those excellent docking port models will be in @Nertea? I've been really looking forward to those.

Seriously, Nertea's made like 3 full DLC's worth for us.

All of that content for free, and of much higher consistency and detail than anything SQUAD has done for our $40 and (maybe) $15

I know you have said that you don't want to add to the workload @Nertea , but it would be amazing if the revamped heat-shields could have toggleable hatches (that don't open, just for looks and making inverted Soyuz designs, for example. :)

Careful gents. Enthusiasm for good looking stuff is to be expected, and considering how good the teasers are looking even more so, but let's not burn out the people volunteering their unpaid time and resources at the very start of the effort. Considering how much work they are taking on, lets give them some breathing room. It'll be released when it's ready.

Any tentative pre-release dates?

God no.

That would be quite a large departure from how the original parts work and as such would need to be carefully considered.

I'm more then glad to accept that. Pleasure doing business with you, and I'll astral project all 400 money-bills into your brain tomorrow. The delivery address for the parts is 6969 East Cerebral Avenue. Just knock on the door when you get here.

Well I can't just give him the money I'm probably in like a different country then him or something. Until I get the Rocket Assisted Koin Katapult working I don't think I'll be sen- oh wait this in the internet. I can do this through the power of the ones and zeros.

I shall donate physical money-bills, they're probably worth more then hypothetical money-bills but my bank hasn't bothered telling me what the exchange rates.

With the hatches, I was thinking that they could just be a toggleable texture, not actual hatches, similar to the different ends on the SSPXr parts?

Here's an update showing off the four small science instruments: the thermometer, barometer, seismometer, and gravimeter.

Hmm... I see that the Oscar-B Fuel tanks , the Ant engine, AND the RTG also have received an update...

Good job to see so much progress! You should probably be more careful about showing this much stuff at once, or else we won't be hyped lol.

But the science intstruments look great! Hopefully they can fit right.

@cineboxandrew awesome! Really liked the science experiments and the RTG. As a small suggestion, how about making the thermometer the same size of the others, since they all have the same mass?

The thermometer is significantly smaller than the others, and since we're not changing colliders at all I decided it should be smaller. 

 

Also I should probably note that I didn't make the RTGs, Ant, or the fuel tank

Question: If Restock+ ever rolls around, is there any hope for an early/mid game RTG?

Very nice, I like how the sensor mounts blend in well with the probe cores.

They should blend even better with our redone cores ;)

I was going to ask something about this. What's your stance on replacing the more recently (1.4, xpack, 1.5, even the new 1.6 goodies) updated parts? I mean the new probe cores are looking pretty good, do you really think they need a serious rework?

Anyways, great job you're doing, but dammit you got me hyped :0.0:

 

Edit: Now that I've played a little with the mod and seeing some of Porkjet's engines in the mix, are there any plans on including the extra 1m engines he modeled for, say, Restock+?

Well I'm not doing anything related to MH so there's that, but I think my opinion of the redo parts is summed up in the OP - namely that they are lacking.

Hope so! I have to clean them up a bit so it's not a drop-in.

At this rate, I'm going to have to invest in a pacemaker. These parts will be the death of me.
