Rendezvous


Question

In the last question (Name: Science) was kinda solved when I am running out and I couldn't do a mun flyby. But then I found out I already have  a exploration contract - Explore Kerbin. I'll need to rendezvous 2 capsules together to finish it. I obviously cannot do that by myself as I suck at it and don't understand the tutorials so I relied on Mechjeb. I need cargo for my one-segment (should be 2 but the second one wasn't launched yet) space station - there wasn't solar panels. Right, I loaded up my needed cargo and used mechjeb. Everything was good at first, good staging and stuff like that. But then it started to get off course - it wasn't in a circular orbit. But it is still a good orbit - Still enough to rendezvous. So I went into the next step - Rendezvous. It automatically got under a 250km distance but then suddenly went on a large suborbital trajectory - 500km apogee and -500km perigee. And splashdown! Nothing, didn't rendezvous with the station! [Snip]

You seem to know the route you wanna go. Not everyone has insight into different mods and what they do. If you have questions like that, you will get the best results by finding the thread for that mod and asking there. But please read the thread first and see if your question has been answered already.

there should be a mod for that i think that guy downloaded something like a billion mods

If by "that" you mean controlling multiple craft at the same time and issuing different commands for each. Then no, there is not a mod for that.

Controlling multiple craft at the same time issuing the same commands I think is possible but I don't have a link (or even the name ) for the mod which supposedly do that.

Finally there is the mod @lemon cup linked, it allows coming back in time and control the craft you previously "abandoned" after the other craft is safely landed/put in a stable orbit.

I have FMRS installed but i don't use it often. Flying the carrier back to base is an ordeal more often than an advantage.

Throttle Controlled Avionics has a squadron mode. 

"Added Squadron Mode: ability to assign a numerical ID to a bunch of vessels and then (if they're in range) control them all through TCA GUI of any of them."

the sls launched, the ares 1 launched, the space shuttle launched (though only succeed 1 time in 11 launches, never deployed a single payload), the falcon 1 ALL freaking launched except for the electron

 i have been trying to fly many realistic vehicles

 Oh well some spacecraft is very unrealistic, despite existing in real life.

e.g: NASA Space Shuttle is as Kerbal as it can be.

well ok, but how are you awake in 5am? Anyways, I made a reusable orbital launcher that doesn't give additional mass, check my kerbalx acc

atlas v deployed the second batch of 5 satellites in orbit! (Falcon 1 brought 5 experimental satellites which doesn't have batteries)

2 of them which had their antenna broken

I didn't even have pictures, by the way, I'm developing a missile named Long March 1 (Yes, the chinese one, 4 engines in the first stage, 1 in the second stage and a solid rocket motor third stage)

No picture for CZ-1, both station modules are in fairings so we have no idea what they look like, and you used real photos for the Atlas Saturn rockets? 

takes too long to do so but it took me time just to correct it. The "Atlas Saturn" was an idea and it never happened in real life. I copied a atlas v photo in there to show how the real one looks like. But they look so alike. The atlas saturn is basically atlas engines and look, saturn stages

the space station modules was posted years ago

enlarge the cz-1 photo to see it

the ksp atlas saturn looks like this

On Resilience Space Station - Module 2, you should think about putting a nose cone or fairing upside down on the bottom of your first stage fuel tank. The very bottom of it is just flat and that creates drag (believe it or not)

there is, a fairing on the bottom

and yet very thin, it's hard to see it, i made a small hole for the thrust to come out

if i use a nosecone it would overheat and burn up

Going back to the original question, did you suss out rendezvous or get MechJob to do it?

did it myself, i said that mechjeb cannot do it
