You asked: "how about a few larger SRB's...?" And we listened to you.

Very cool!

While you're at it, could you please have a look in adjusting the Basic Fin ? The rebar really shouldn't be on spacecraft at all, guess that's why no other part has it. It could also do without the yellow stripe (unless there's plans to add monoprop).

And as always, don't forget about them bugs in the bugtracker you asked us to update and upvote... There's quite a bit of low hanging fruit there!

We do look at the public tracker and the upvotes. We look at both bugs and feedback from there. Add your feedback about the fin to the bug tracker please.

Great stuff, will do!

EDIT: feedback added to the bugtracker

I'm curious as to what specific real-life boosters (if any) served as the inspiration for any of these. Obviously the Clydesdale is inspired by the shuttle SRB's, but the Pollux and Thoroughbred make me think of Orbital ATK hardware, like Minotaur or OmegA.

The nozzle of the Shrimp and Mite remind me somewhat of the later version of the Skylark sounding rocket’s boost stage.

The Unity upgrade is pretty much done. We've already done two rounds of testing for these bad boys. 

Now this is very nice to hear

One question though, since the engine has been upgraded, does the dev team have any thoughts on opening up tags for us modders

It would be awesome if we would be able to edit tags on game objects 

EDIT: I should qualify that with being able add to, edit and utilize the tagging of game objects in Unity is what I am referring to as currently we are unable to do much with it as far as I have discovered (although I may just be going about it in the wrong way)

These were some of the main refs used.

P-80 Solid Propellant Motor
Castor 120 ATK
Orbital-ATK-02

On the other hand, 1.875 port is the real equivalent to the CBM

Actually, no. The CBM in KSP scale is actually 0.825m, but most replicas keep it at its IRL scale, which is ~1.25m. A 1.875m port would be far larger than anything IRL.

On one hand, if we take the outer diameter, you are absolutely correct (then that means all the normal docking port, not just that of russia but also of the Orion, should be the mini port, as NASA Docking System is also just 800mm )

On the other hand, if we consider the diameter refer to the interior only, then exterior will be bigger regardless.

Will any of the new boosters have selectable vacuum nozzle variants (especially for the 0.625's)?

Would be cool to have a PAM / StarXX alike kick motors.

And the Unity upgrade is already mostly done? Great googly moogly.
