Space Shuttle Engines (SSE)

Space Shuttle Engine (SSE) pack by Klockheed Martian Engine Manufacturer - for Kerbal Space Program.

About the pack by @dtobi

The goal was to make the parts to build shuttles by only using this pack, stock parts and maybe other parts like B9 aerodynamic parts.

The engines are can combined with bi-, tri-, and quad-couplers (strut the stronger X3 engine). A NASA shuttle-like appearance can be achieved with the tricoupler.

The two weaker engines allow orbital maneuvers because the shuttle main engines will be useless after dropping the main tank moves the center of mass into the vessel. The OMS drives are useless in atmosphere.

The fuel tanks come in four sizes, allowing various asymmetric shuttle-alike rockets.

Fuel flow breakers balance tank center of mass (CoM) which must carefully: your tank's weight and vertical position, along with your engines' and boosters' power, determine your CoM's alignment with your center of thrust. The engines' large gimballing stabilizes craft.

The main engines fly crooked with the CoM right above them and at full throttle overheat.

Parts:

  • eleven (11) engine parts
    • X0, X2 and X3 Space Shuttle Engines
    • X4 Linear Aerospike Engine
    • Orbital Maneuvering System (OMS) Engine
    • Double - Orbital Maneuvering System (OMS) Engine
    • Shuttle Shoulders attachment point for OMS
    • Two big 2.5m engines. One can rotate (check action groups and context menu)
  • sixteen (16) tank parts
    • Four tank shapes in four different sizes (16 parts in total)
  • six (6) other parts
    • Two fuel controllers for controlling fuel lines' flow
    • Radial mount for shuttle engines

Example Craft

The example craft are supposed to give you an idea how to setup the engines, fuel controllers, tracks, etc.

Atlantis and Endeavor require procedural wings and B9.

Explorer requires B9.

Installation Directions 1

Use CurseForge/OverWolf App (currently does not install dependencies)

CurseForge/OverWolf App

Whilst I agree CKAN is a great mod for those that can't use zip tools. I take no part, nor am I interested in maintaining the CKAN mod metadata for my mods. Please don't ask me about it but refer to the CKAN mod thread if you are having issues with CKAN or the metadata it maintains. Beware, CKAN can really mess up though it tries very, very, very hard not to.

This looks great, and I look forward to using it!

However, I can't at the moment because it's listed on Spacedock as being "for Kerbal Space Program 1.1" (when the previous pre-release version was listed as being for 1.12.3), and in CKAN it's listed as being for KSP 1.1.9, so it's 6 minor revisions outside of my "compatible" range (I have it set to a minimum of 1.7).

I'm guessing this is just a typo, so I hope it's something that can be easily remedied.

Thanks! :D

@Radical Isotope YVMW. 

We (I) look forward to you using it as well!

Thank you - all credit goes to @dtobi!

I am working on the 2.3.99.0-adoption release as we speak and it should be out shortly. It will be the first of several, planned updates (pre-releases) before the final big-bang release. Am trying to break the work into several, more manageable updates. This thread shall be moved to Add-on Releases when I push my first release

As far as CKAN, it appears to be very constipated in approving PR's, so it will be behind an indeterminate amount of time. (a.k.a. Soon™er™Ish™)

I have very little to do with CKAN and I don't see that changing in the near future.

To find the most current/up to date release from me (and others) always check CurseForge first. There is a 1.3.1 rated version, and I am hoping to have the 2.3.99-adoption out just as soon as I get all the internal part names aligned with the flight path.

This is the first in a series of updates to this addon. Each update will update some of the parts and patches so that instead of one massive update I can update the addon in a more manageable way.
