KSP Loading... Preview: Moar RCS!

Noice! Although I think the width of that first part is missing a zero - if that height is 0.1m, there's no way that width is 0.86m. I assume 0.086 is correct?

Yeah, that's a typo we will get that fixed.

So we're getting a new pass for the existing RCS quad and a new set of linear and multidirectional RCS in a smaller size. Nice, I can definitely think of places where I'll be using these and look forward to playing with them. Though, if I might also make a bit of a request, while we're looking at new RCS parts (and potentially reworking a part that had already been touched up) is there any chance larger bipropellant RCS options might get another look? The vernier is currently our only entry in that category, and the aerodynamic casing can often make it awkward to work with.

Yeah, it would be pretty neat to get a  big beefy biprop thruster block. I sometimes find myself trying to make one myself by clustering the one-way ones on a a cubic octagonal strut, but that's far from ideal.

That being said, I love that the different thruster layouts and mini-RCS are stock now!

A very welcome addition. Different RCS thruster configurations are nice to have, but the mini RCS blocks will be particularly useful for small spacecraft such as probes where the standard sized RCS parts are overkill. I also like the new models, they're a big improvement on the current ones.

Now, how about some larger RCS thrusters with 5x the weight and 5x the thrust for heavy spaceplanes, stations etc.?

tbh, I don't really see the need for tinier RCS. Reaction wheels are already good enough at that size.

RCS is for translation, though.

Personally I'm hyped for the orthogonal 5-horns! No more cobbling them together from the 4- and 1- directional RCS ports!

Hmmm yet another reason for me to stop using my beloved KW Rocketry mod.  Running out of reasons to keep that one around.
