Hi and welcome to this thread!

I am a big fan of the current progress LinkSpace is doing.
Their NewLine-1 rocket is paving the way for reusable launch vehicles on Chinese ground.
That's why I am inspired to make this mod.

@damonvvhow do you fly this with enough fuel to land 

It’s a very small rocket and you can only do super tiny cube sats with it. I’m not sure if the actual rocket does an RTLS or just lands somewhere down range

okay I'm trying to do water landings cause there is nothing down range of the KSC but the second stage has nearly 3000 m/s of delta v

Small correction here. I think you might wanna name this rocket as "SHI JIAN", not "JIAN SHI". "JIAN SHI  " in Chinese could be meaning "surveillance (监视) ". (Or at least it is the first combination that pops in my mind, other than 简史 Brief History、见识 Knowledges ) ," Shi Jian" in Chinese meaning “Practice (实践)” , it is also the name for the series of experimental satellites launched by China.

Then it is correct!

Just found it a very strange world as a Chinese native, I never use this combination in my 26 years of lifetime (Pardon my pool vocabulary.). It makes sense right away after you giving me the Chinese name, feels like it got picked from some ancient Kung Fu fiction.

Version 0.4 is up!
- Updated to KSP 1.11
- Added Modular Launch Pad clamp craft file

I have noticed people are using this mod in various other games without my permission. I Strongly suggest that if you find this mod somewhere else, please report it to me so I can handle it further.
I do not like seeing these kind of activities and it is very disrespectful to a mod author.

Happy landings!
