Is this balanced like BDB for JNSQ?

yes (otherwise it wouldn't make much sense because it is paired with Photoncorp boosters and BD RS-68s)

Love the mod! Will be great use for my super heavy rocket collection.

 

Side note: I believe there needs to be some configurating for the mods engines. The model looks great with the engine skirt, but the actual engine performance is pretty underwhelming. Perhaps a large boost in thrust is in order?

they are BDB engines, they have the correct thrust

 

IRL, downscaled

I understand they're from BDB so then perhaps its the parts in the mod themselves? Regardless, it just seems like the craft doesn't have enough thrust. I am launching it with just a remote control unit on it, yet it has a very slow/hard launch. 

Even with mechjeb, I cannot even reach 100km orbit in JNSQ.

maybe the tank volume is too high

I drained the oxidiser from the big tank, now it has a boosterless payloadless TWR of about 0.85, this didn't lower the burntime of the RS-68s

Above is before I drained the oxidizer from the big tank. (With boosters and a remote control unit)

Below is after draining the oxidizer from the big tank. So overall it appears to have improved the craft significantly. Perhaps this is all it is.

You gotta switch the big tank to LH only because the small tank is oxidizer only.

i meant the background look like real solar system

You noticed that! It's another mod I made call "Cape Kanaveral". Recreate the whole cape canaveral. Like Katniss's Cape Canaveral and Real KSC in KSP did but for KSRSS. It's still unreleased yet.

Orion part shouldn't appear there because its completeness is too low. I uploaded the wrong file. (Don't worry I won't delete it)

Cause it still under development, I didn't adjust fuel amount properly, just give it a rough number. If you can help me, I will be very grateful!

Ah, that'll do it/help too, thanks did not think about this!

Yes I understand! I hate being that guy annoying a developer, but I thought it was just something that needed attention. I am not sure how I can help, but removing the oxidizer from the big tank improved the performance immensely. Prior to the change I could not even make it into orbit, after the change I could make a 100x100km orbit. 

The user I quoted above you helped out a lot.
