Today is my 100th post . . . 100th . . . in FOUR YEARS

Yep, I'm unbelievable communicative and easy-to-contact person :D (especially on non native language)

to celebrate this milestone I bring you not one, but two mods

 

Stock TKS

Sqix93s.png

bky0m4n.png

First one from Soviet side. It`s a set of parts to build a TKS style spaceships, or any other vessels with rear crew access

This mod make a copy of stock pod and add heat shield and some attach parts to it`s top

also add stabilization cone with built-in RCS, de-orbiting engine, nose cone, attach base, fuel tank and small antenna

It work with stock pod and ReStocked one, also support Connected Living Space for bottom node and passable decoupler

So this was the Salyut... (or part of MIR)

@RandomKerbal  Basically no . . . and yes.

 

Some info from NESDipedia :D

LEv7waL.jpg

It`s a TKS (literally - Transport Supply Ship) lesser known part of Soviet space program, and also one of mostly used part.

This ship built to carry supplies and photo films to  Almaz stations, military spy variant of Salyut  equipped with

huge 4 meter long photo cam that required a lot of cargo to delivery to orbit, back to earth films delivered by automatic capsules

fnuQByB.jpgi6rL2Hn.jpg

Also TKS is a first reusable pod, Gemini project also have some tests before, but this one intentionally made as reusable (up to  10 times)

This program also have variant for "around the Moon" flights

It have only 4 working and some test launches before program was cancelled

but many prefabs for rear, non returnable living and cargo section already was built

and later being used to make modules for Mir station (that actually is a Salyut-8)

0vj5ayk.jpg

So all four side modules with double cone ends is actually based on TKS rear parts.

 

And this program still not scrapped, like Mercury, Gemini, Apollo and Shuttle  ( Vostok also still alive)

Module Zarya at Salyut-9 (aka International Space Station) also made from TKS parts

and one still not launched Russian module Nauka for ISS is TKS too

 

Also TKS reentry pod being used as one of variants for new Russian crew launch program, but not win contest

I have some ideas for this variants but waiting new @Nertea Mk-1.5 station parts to make it compatible

@jpkerman  Original ASSET and DynaSoar don`t have abblator, so this thing also don`t have it and not suitable for direct dive even from Mun

Next time try 2-3 stage aerobraking or return with intermediate orbit at 80-150 km

"Have no wheels, how can land?"

Q32LaHx.png

One parachute is enough . . .   or just jump. This thing have very small wings, you just can`t turn it to horizontal flight.

Unfortunately stock chutes always white, maybe ReStock team can add color changer for their model

Or just clip it down into the craft. :) I agree though, it would be nice to have exterior 'chute container colors to match the primary paint schemes.

@NESD InternalRCS is a seriously underrated mod.  I thought it could use some love, so I gave it support for WaterfallRestock and StockWaterfallEffects.  I configured it so you can have WFRS and SWFE with no conflicts (from my patches. ;)) Your wellcome to ship the patch if you think they're good enough.

ReStock plumes; On the right Stock engines. On the Left InternalRCS and APUS. (Yes I did this for APUS Too.)

fmohQ7s.png

StockWaterfallEffects;

laychHs.png

And it all fits in the tiny patch and accompanying template. The patch is designed to live in a dedicated patch folder (Eg: MyPatches/waterfall/Templates[folder] {files,...}), but it can go into the mod's patch folder. The template needs to be in a 'Templates' folder in the same dir as the patch.

@snkiz That`s nice (again), but my 16Gb RAM can`t eat more mods to check it

Update for IRCS and some other mods almost ready, so this config being included

Also one more mini mod approaching to release

FJAXmMt.png

Simple, standalone IDSS/IDA style docking ports (not compatible with Habtech)

just need some tweaks for cap and LES tower (that have adjustable in VAB side thrust)

How many do you have? I'm loading over 10,000 patches RN and I'm only hitting 15gb on the game.

16Gb RAM, i7-4770, GTX1060 no SSD

not too many mods, 2 DLC, Near Future/Station Parts, Restock and Restock+, Kerbalism, Universal Storage all my mods

and some other small mods with overall size of Data folder around 5gb

After 3-5 switching between SPH/VAB and game map KSP grow to 13+Gb and my PC start kicking

other programs from RAM

This is what's killing you. I keep kebal on an NVME. I only have a 1600x and a oc'd 580. But 32gb memory and fast storage make all the difference. I play Cities skylines. I have enough mods on that to boot stuff out of ram( it loads to 26gb) still not that bad with background being pushed to swap(pagefile). The system while a little slower, is still responsive. Most of my page file still lives on an ssd because I don't want to wear out my OS drive to fast. But I feel your pain, Nerta's Near Future stuff is a rabbit hole. All their stuff is a rabbit hole lol.

It`s more like KSP(or mod) problem than a PC

I can make a many hours mission with 400+ parts rocket launch, multiple dockings, switching

between 300+ parts vessels, landing on other planet and return home with whole RAM usage not exceed 60-70%

But if I go to SPH and start ship test launches, every switch to map and back give KSP 10-20% more Ram usage

until it overfill (and I make a LOT of test launches, even for simple ship design :D)

This might explain why ksp runs like... well you know after a few hours for me to. I've had out memory related blue screens while playing to. Could have been HW related(I had an ssd die recently) or KSP slowly filling all of it. yikes. I test ships a fair bit as well. Not as much as you I'd imagine bug testing your mods.

It`s slightly easier than you imagine, for mod testing I have separate install, most stock as possible,

only with some simple mods that show parts and ship info, without anything that can change parts

behavior or visual, but maybe I temporary add Waterfall to it

Yep, it started with around 6-7Gb RAM usage but grow to 12-13 after multiple SPH enter

Yup that's what I did to make those. just the mods I was messing with and the squad folder. (well The MH to folder when I remembered that's where the white panels are) Speaking of, since your pushing an update soon. I don't use them, but I can have a look at your KeR-7 engines if you like. Save you some low level effort.

I vote for parallel "ApusRCS" mod for those who want only it`s RCS

InternalRCS already have a lot of parts ( and it`s "internal" )

It's your picnic, IMO they are the same nozzles are they not? Not uncommon for component companies to do stand alone parts to demo their products. That my 2 cents.

@TaintedLion They both already have stock IVAs, TKS cabin  is just a copy of stock config with some tweaks and details,

ASSET  intentionally built around  stock cockpit for maximum compatibility with all stock IVA replacers

Possibly RPM use modified copy of stock cockpit and you need patch that change file path to RPMs IVA in my mods

(I dont have RPM and can't check it)

 

@Dominiquini rear part with RCS have sound config, you play stock or restock game?

@NESD I had ReStock installed, but I uninstall it waiting upgrade to 1.12! I don't remember if when I tested this mod I have it installed or not. I will check it again! 

But I remember that the sound of some RCS works, some didn't, depending on the orientation of the burn...

Thanks

@NESD I tested here again, and only the left RCS (looking from behind) in the cylindrical section of the fuselage have sound! All the others don't make any sound!

Thanks.

@Dominiquini

check it and found a bug in config

you can make quick fix by your own hands, it`s fast and easy

nDqtDJc.jpg

Open AssetRSS.cfg in notepad ( can be found in - Your KSP folder \ GameData \ AssetMk1 \ Parts \ 2 )

then change AUDIO to AUDIO_MULTI_POOL inside EFFECTS section (case sensitive)

and add transformName = RCSthruster line where it marked on picture
