We should come up with ideas for parts that the KSP Devs could add in the future, also I'm on console so if there already in the game, oops.

One that I have right now, is a bearing part for helicopters, or propeller planes, or a space station that spins

Yes, that's what we do, fairly often, in the Suggestions subforum.  ;)

Speaking of which, moving the post over there.

Ok. Oops I didn't know that

They should add a hydraulics system for elevators or something like that

 

Definitely ! It would lead to a lot of cooler builds and more possibilities. I think some type of real parts for ships and boats would be cool

i like the idea of hydraulic parts, just a simple piston would work

yes, see that would be cool, lots of custom and better build ideas.

Soooo... A stock take on Infernal Robotics, then? I'd be down for that. A rotator plate, a hinge, and a piston (in a few sizes) would probably be all we really need. It would open up a lot of new designs and missions. Stock Canadarms, folding rovers... Hmm.

Add a 45° angled RCS quad block along with the current flat quad, like on the 4 corners of the Lunar Module upper stage.  I always want them.

I think they should add a more diverse array of parts, but nothing to advanced. I, personally, like how the Kerbals aren't a very advanced species and simply throw together rockets out of scrap metals. I don't want anything futuristic, and pistons and elevators are starting to border on beyond the capabilities of Kerbals.

I definitely want to see some kind of part articulation. Hinges, pistons, and turning parts would allow for a whole slew of designs that aren't possible in the stock game. I haven't messed with Infernal Robotics in a while, maybe I'll take a look at it again.

If no specialized parts for articulation, then allow attachment to the parts that move and have them move appropriately. For instance, attaching instruments to the underside of a cargo bay door; or attachment of parts to control surfaces. If that could be done, you wouldn't even need to make a new "hinge" part. I understand there is some physics issue with having a section of the craft that moves separately, though I'm not clear on why.

I'm fine with some simple parts of this sort.  We know from the extendable landing legs that the Kerbals have some experience making things that move.  Just wish they could adapt the technology a little more broadly.

Of course, this is the same species that invented like 6 different kinds of rocket engines before the rung ladder...

Of course... Kerbals can make things that move. I completely forgot about those. I think a happy medium could be found - a few rotating hinges with maybe a small piston. Nothing crazy, but enough to open up a bigger variety of possible missions.

We can't trust kerbals with such things. You know where this will lead. Minmus-flavoured icecream-ball catapults and cannons, that's what. There will be war, kerbals will deplete Minmus, there'll be dead fat kerbals lying helpless everywhere groaning with indigestion, and it will all be your fault for suggesting such parts in the first place.

Are you happy now?

Are you?

I don't see what's wrong with this at all! I like the idea of tossing Kermen around using catapults and the like...

If I were to ask for any part I'd like to see, I'd like a bigger selection of antennae. Here's what I'd love to see:

I'm 90% sure the KW pack has that.

Several mods have them (FASA RCS, Mandatory RCS, etc.).  But I want them stock.  It's such a little thing to improve KSP significantly.  While doing a redesign of the existing RCS blocks would be appropriate.

But a trebuchet is clearly superior.

is it just me, or is that white one with the black background actually just a foot off of a tv.

It is an aircraft antenna...

Looks great! You did, however, forget the worthy blade antenna. :)

Oh, yeah... I did think about putting it in the post but most folks wouldn't recognize it... 

But then again, most didn't recognize the other aircraft antenna either. :/
