[WIP] Boring Crew Services - Stockalike Starliner Mod


Recommended Posts

This mod aims to add new and shiny Starliner spacecraft into the game. It's gonna be fairly simple, and is designed to work well with the Bluedog Design Bureau Atlas V.

Please check the roadmap before asking questions ---> https://trello.com/b/HN7sjVMG/boring-crew-services-roadmap

The mod will also include the International Docking Adapter, which will be compatible with the gorgeous Habtech2!

FAQ

Q: How big will it be?

A: We decided on 2.75m, 2.5m is too small and 3.125m is too large so neither look quite right on Atlas V or a Vulcan for example.

 

Q: Will the IDA work with Habtech2?

A: Yes.

 

Q: Will this be stockalike or realistic?

A: It will be a stockalike style, I try to aim for something similar  to BDB.

 

Q: Will there be RO configs?

A: I'm not making them, anyone else is more than welcome to though!

 

Q: Will you make Vulcan?

A: No. There's already a Vulcan mod, or you could easily throw one together. I'll be providing an adapter for it though.

 

Q: Do you know the release date?

A: Absolutely not, also never listen to me when I say I do because I can't work consistently. :) 

 

I post here as I make progress. If I haven't posted recently, then I haven't been making progress.

Isn't there another starliner mod? 

First again

Yes and it really could use an update on its visuals.

If you're making the APAS, you may as well make the rest of the ISS.

Who do I look like to you? Someone who can effectively get stuff done? Funny :D

The x0.64 heuristic for diameter gives us 2.9m. Are you rounding up to 3.125m, or doing something else?

 

Either way, it'll fun to pair this with a kit-bashed Vulcan using Nertea's metholox engines.

This is going to be a new part size of 2.75m

We found that this is the best size for if you wanted to place it on anything from Atlas V to Delta IV to Vulcan. Since it’s an off part size it will also include adapters for normals sizes so you can fit this on a few things if you want.

That's an odd size, but if it does end up proportional with Centaur, and adapters will be provided, then I suppose it won't be a problem.

More importantly, are you planning an IVA? From what I've seen of the interior pics, the controls seem fairly straightforward. If you were willing to model the MFD, I could help you set it up and add ASET switches, as well.

I'm actually planning on copying squad's mercury capsule iva, but like one for each potential crew member so they all have privacy and personal space. This idea came to me out of pure laziness, and then I also realized that it has social distancing benefits!

Innovative, I know!

Can't wait! Will it have a detachable heat shield so we can add airbags?

 

Sorry, just read the roadmap. Thanks for doing this, pls don't forget to add software problems.

Friendly reminder to check the FAQ in the op.
