It is necessary to test the robot arm, but I do not think it will work well. Now I am considering various options, and many hours of test them using different modes. I think that first I will release the rover "as is" because the creation and development of the lander takes time. In any case, the rover is now almost ready for use, and good descent in stock parts.

Yay!

I have to ask though: Is the crew module full of Kerbals on launch? Because if it is...an empty version would be nice. Mostly so that it can easily be a nice addition to a fledgling base somewhere, rather than showering the place in Kerbals. :P (Though if you say "bah, I don't wanna" that's fine; it should be a simple cfg edit and duplication of the part file.)

Of the landers, the former is reminiscent of the Bigtrak Cuttlefish, which works well. The skycrane would require less modelling - an optional detachable drogue parachute for deceleration prior to deploying the skycrane's rockets would be nice.

The first Idea would work, if it was some sort of "Drop Capsule"

Only thing is, it'd need to be angled inside the capsule so its nose upwards ( To keep from making it a massive capsule, which would mean you'd need some way of straightening it when you land so its belly down. Oh, and the wheel assembly would need to be able to retract/fold.

Everywhere there are pros and cons, hampered by technical limitations. Therefore, we must choose a path that will not interfere with the technical features of the game.

How long does it take until you finish?

I do not call release date, it could be tomorrow, or next month.

Yes, the first option is similar to the Cuttlefish. It good work to descent rover

It seems like the internal view you used is powered by the mechjeb hullcam or something, because the crew portraits in the bottom right are in the Mk1-2 pod. Is this correct? Why not do it the proper way? Other than that, this is looking awesome!

Do you have a link to a tutorial as well, to do it? Because I do not know how to implement it as the upstream.If the opportunity arises to make the interior as it is necessary, I will update the rover

to all Thx a lot.
