Sea Dragon (SEA)

The infamous, never-built Sea Dragon rocket, in its full scale glory!

Note

These rocket parts ARE NOT stock balanced! They're using the real world mass ratios, thrusts, ISPs, dry weights, and so on.

Preamble by NecroBones

The "Sea Dragon" was a proposed rocket design, that was intended to be built using shipyards, and launched from the ocean. Designed with inexpensive operatings costs in mind, it would have used simple construction, but on a large scale. It was inteneded to be fueled at sea, and use a nuclear aircraft carrier as the power source to generate the hydrogen and oxygen needed. While the design was solid in many ways, it was also unusually ambitious, and perhaps required a bit of insanity to truly appreciate. :)

Installation Directions 1

Spoiler

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

CurseForge/OverWolf App

I take no part, nor am I interested in maintaining the CKAN mod metadata for my mods.

CKAN is a great mod for those that can't use zip tools.

If you are having issues please let the CKAN people know and refer to the CKAN thread.

My support of CKAN extends as far as me checking the checkbox in Spacedock when I upload.

Beware, CKAN can really mess up though it tries very, very, very hard not to.

or CKAN

Just found this mod, so hyped.

 

Also adopted by one of my favorite modders:D

 

It is really cool. 

Thank you @Rutabaga22

Plan is to make it compatible with stock and RO/RSS/et al.

Hard part is I have zer0 experience / knowledge in converting stock <--> RO/RSS/et al.

Just waiting for CF to approve it, which is my error - a wayward link was hiding in the readme.

Will there be Sea dragon crewed version? including the lander itself. If so then will it include the craft file as well?

@EndAllFilms I would love to include one, just am not a modeler, at least a good one. GitHub submissions are always welcomed, hopefully with matching textures (or matching textures and variants)

And I also encountered a tweakscale sea dragon fairing bug

Which version? and kindly submit a bug report here.

In my testing - I didn't experience anything like that; albeit my testing was very limited due to time constraints and hundreds of little mod voices screaming at me for attention. :D

The updated version is almost ready - just polishing the release notes/changelog and waiting for CF to publish.

I forgot to suggest that I highly recommend adding a better reaction wheel because sometimes it’s hard to use the thrust to turn

hello, could anyone update textures and make this for stock so there is a good sea dragon mod out there, it's not I don't like this mod, it is just i want a update or something to catch this up to this age of ksp modding. to wreck rockets with better texturing and balance with kerbals on them.

Hello @Seadragon420- welcome to the KSP forums! Have +1 :rep:!

This parts addon is being actively being updated. Intention is to make it stock and RO/RSS compatible (normally stock, but includes patches to make it Ro/RSS compatible if RO/RSS is installed)

However it was originally meant for RSS/RO (Real Solar System / Realism Overhaul) so all previous versions will be just that; if and when I can figure how not what to change, but by how much I will do so; unless some great player supplies that information or better yet, the patches, first.

Might be a good Idea to have hangar extender included in the download...

@Rutabaga22 - thank you for the suggestion. +1 :rep:

won't include but will have it listed as a 'Recommended' addon in the readme et al.
