[1.12.x] [Breaking Ground] Shuttle Payload Delivery Systems [3.0]


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Shuttle Payload Delivery Systems

This mod adds:

  • IUS Airborne Support Equipment
  • Centaur (G/G-Prime, II, III) Integrated Support System
  • SpaceLab Pallet with two types of "shelfs"

 

Dependencies:

 

What version of KSP is this mod for?

I tested this mod on version 1.12.3, but I think it will work with any version that BG works with.

 

What's next?

In future I want to add other shuttle payload things like SpaceHab, Integrated Cargo Carrier and more.

10/10 cannot wait to see these and other things you have in store. 


Congrats on the release, and welcome! This looks astounding. :0.0:

CISS can hold stuff rather nicely.

A small request - can you make a B9 switch for Centaur-specific tubes, to use CISS as a "generic" 1.875m holder (like above)?

Also, Centaur holding pins doesn't seem to work (from what I can see in files, there is no MM patch to add extra node to Centaur avionics).

Yeah, I've been thinking about it.

Currently pins working only with big centaur avionics module.

Doesn't work for me, unfortunately. It seems I can't attach it anywhere at all, not just to Centaur.

For some future reference - a document on Shuttle-Agena: https://ntrs.nasa.gov/api/citations/19720013177/downloads/19720013177.pdf

There aren't much in these - basically Agena cradle is just a truss with some fuel lines for emergency dumping. Agena was deployed by Canadarm(s). Still, this may have some uses, especially if you make variable diameter (B9PS) trusses, 0.625-0.9375-1.25-1.5-1.875.

Come to think of it... Surface-attached tiny decoupler part, which you put on your stage and then attach it to a corresponding node on truss assembly? This would help to eject payload from orbiter bay.

All Centaur II/III things is now in release 2.1. And now I'm starting to work on the 3.0 release. Here are some pictures:
