I vaguely remember the fuselage parts from the old days of KSP when I started using mods. I wanted to try them, but they were swallowed up by the forum and I wasn't able to find them again. I guess better late than never right? 

Ooo… spherical tanks that aren't associated with USI, now I have to start playing with those.

PS. After looking at the configs, you may want to raise the crash tolerance and decrease the max temp to bring them more inline with the stock parts.

Yes. :D all four of these are seemingly fairly popular on SpaceDock.

I would love to see the flat fuselage in say carbon fiber black, and maybe some blinkies on them - @bcink or another modeler might take some of their very precious time to update the models. :D (I can hope).

I will see if I can provide the SphericalTanks with other selectable textures. Am also considering releasing them in 0.625m, 1.875m, 2.5m, and 3.75m variants. What do you think?

:D

I welcome suggestions. all github PR's will be considered.

Thank you - +1 :rep: 

the Factory Specified maxTemp has been raised due to additional post release testing from 1800° to 2000° in order to bring it in line with our competitors.

the crashTolerance of DaMichel's 1.25m SphericalTanks is 7, which is why you pay a premium for them. :D

compared to similar stock tanks.

  • Spoiler
    • R-11 'Baguette' External Tank
      • crashTolerance = 5
    • Oscar-B Fuel Tank
      • crashTolerance = 6
    • FL-T100 Fuel Tank
      • crashTolerance = 6
    • Rockomax X200-8 Fuel Tank
      • crashTolerance = 6

the breakingForce and breakingTorque had already been corrected to 50 (stock) from 200 (unbreakium)

in researching this - several other small details came up and will be fixed in the next release (the texture was fixed already):

Spoiler

        version = 1.1.0.1
        change = changed maximum_drag from 0.25 to 0.2 (stock)
        change = minimum_drag from 0.25 to 0.3 (stock)
        change = maxTemp from 1800 (originally was 1400) to 2000 (stock)
        change = added missing texture (c125-normalmap_NRM.dds)
        change = updated integrated TweakScale module (removed KGEx, added freeScale = True)

Jez @zer0Kerbal it seems like you've just exploded with quantity of mods lately. You trying to give Linuxgurugamer a run for his money as the master mod maintainer? :D;)

not trying... :ohowever, I do have a backlog of mods to release - last count 20+ (mostly part mos) including some real favorites.

Hopefully they are quality not just quantity. :o:D

Next up: SimpleCargoSolutions; and maybe some long legs, and maybe a whole lotta ISP. :D

Thanks for taking on these mods. It might be nice to put the descriptions that are on the respective Spacedock pages in the OP here, because as it is, it is not necessarily obvious what these parts bring to the game.

Edit: Also, 3 of the mods (DMF, DST and DAR) are marked on Spacedock as being for 1.8.1, although the description says they are for 1.9.0. You may want to update this :)

My pleasure.

excellent suggestion. +1 :rep:

CKAN also lists all four as compatible with 1.9; which they probably are, however I haven't even started up 1.9 yet. I have downloaded it; but soon™ I will fire it up. Once I do, and at least see that the parts pop, I will release for 1.9.

Thankfully I was shown an easy way to speed up my deployment by using .json's - thank you for pointing out the issue - I just updated the KSP.json for these parts and violai it now should be updated everywhere, at least on all the graphical. I can't do much about CargoBays on Spacedock.

I appreciate the feedback!

PS - I just updated the OP with your suggestion.

I take it you have karbonite/karbonite+ installed?

As to the importance of it, I cannot tell unless I see the mm.log/mmpatch.log, or at least the portions that pertain.

I will try to install K/K+ today and see.  more news @11.

news came early:

I will try to release  version 1.1.0.1 later today/tomorrow. the repo has been updated.

Spoiler

- updated localization from #DM_sphericaltanks_* to #DST_*
- B9TankTypes.cfg to add in Karbonite an Karborundum tank definitions | unitsPerVolume probably need adjustment (currently set to 5) (seems there is a 5:1 ratio between LF and K)
- added new tank patch (Karborundum) if B9PartSwitch and Karbonite+ (Karborundum) is installed
- added localization from new B9TankTypes and new patch into localization
- updated existing B9PartSwitch Karbonite patch
- added USI-Logistics to tanks if USI-Logistics installed.
- removed extraneous [SNACKS] in B9FuelSwitch-Snacks.cfg
- removed extraneous [TAC] in B9FuelSwitch-TAC-LS.cfg
- split Karborundum out of B9FuelSwitch-Karbonite.cfg into its own patch: B9FuelSwitch-Karborundum.cfg
- looking at volumes between USI, DST, and stock - something is out of whack. Not Sphericaltanks (appears to be USI-Kontainers holding about 10% more than mathimatically possible)

Hey, there were some problems with the Kerbal Changelog .cfg file formatting, I've submitted a PR to fix those for you.

Congratulations on the release. 

I'm curious how these are balanced compared to stock parts?

I'm quite happy that @zer0Kerbal is picking up the parts mods. I may toss a few his way which I haven't had time to update.

almost spot on for the Mk1 parts, the max temps are a little high.

thank you @linuxgurugamer!

the tanks should be spot on - in most regards. see posts above for slight changes suggested and will be addressed when I push out the next release soon™.

the AeroRadial should be spot on - at least the production part.

The Flat Fuselage - should also be close.

Cargobays should also be close

If you see something, kindly say something. and as always, PR's welcome. :D

 

I spent the day working on some, um, mods, that fell into my lap and tracking down the licenses/permissions for others.

all good. I know one or two that come to mind that you might not enjoy all that much. :D

thank you.

what would you suggest?

I would expect them to be a little higher because IIRC 90° angles radiate better - or do I have that backwards? 90° angles are bad in circuitry and fluid dynamic flows....

Most of the Mk1/Size 1 parts have a max temp of 1400-2000. I was thinking of matching the Mk1 fuselage parts and making them 1800. If you seen my GitHub suggestion, I explain my though process there.

For radiating, Im pretty sure its the exposed surface area that is important, not the angles.
