How's it goin'?

I'm working on Voskhod's IVA. Vostok's looks normal in unity even with new part tools (((

Did you try re-exporting the Vostok IVA? Maybe if it looks right, then it will work right when converted with the new part tools.

He does have a good point.

But when you are done withe the Voskhod IVA, I suggest making a Voskhod 1 pod and IVA. If not, then I suggest the R7 Family or the first versions of the Soyuz (i.e. the 7K-OK, 7K-OKS, or the 7K-T.)

I think the 7k-ok is good enough, and MrTheBull already said he would make a rocket for the Voskhod which is an r7 rocket (unless you're talking about early rockets such as the Sputnik launch vehicles). Voskhod 1 pod and IVA aren't that different, only there is no EVA tunnel and three seats instead of two. If he makes just a Voskhod 2 IVA I would be fine. I would personally like to see a shenzhou in the future.

Err, the "Sputnik launch vehicle" was *actually* the R-7, just without a warhead. The later ones were R-7-deriveds with upper stages.

Sorry, the Voskhod one was what? R-7-based? Yes. (Derived from Vostok/Luna 8K72 with more powerful upper stage and updated engines. Usually classed as 11A57.) An unmodified R-7? No.

Still, I'd like a Soyuz 7K-OK. I mean, it did come next. It did the first docking between two manned spacecraft.

EDIT: Also, when do you think the Voskhod IVA will be out?

mahboi818: ah,, gotcha. :]

Pockrtplanesairways: In the list of things, ranked by how unknown they are, I think "Pockrtplanesairways wants that Soyuz" may rank below even "water is wet" :P

I agree with you, but the lunokhod wasn't that well known either, and now there's a mod of that. So a Soyuz 7k might just be possible...

Yes. I want the Old Soyuz 7K models

Maybe soon MrTheBull will actually consider it, if not, Bobcat might decide to make it.

Nope. Bobcat said no. He is not making any more soyuz models at least for a loooooong time.

So, how's dat IVA dere?

You gotta give him some time. IVA's take a while (at least I think they do). And I'm sure he's busy with other things as well.

He sure doesn't wanna forget this:Vostokpanel.JPG

Globus.

And it shouldn't take too long. He already has a baseline (Vostok IVA). And you should also test the Vostok IVA exported from the new part tools.

Looks great! And it looks like you have Kerbin in your desktop background :P

Also I read that the Voskhod airlock was jettisoned after use. Are you going to make that a feature?

Cool! When do you think it will be released? I'm anticipating the moment it comes out!

Happy easter! How's the progress?

Ooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhh. When do you estimate it to come out? Oh, and when you choose to update the Vostok, make it less brown/tan more grey for the Block E and the capsule and the fairings too.

I've just found something out about Vostok upper stage. It turns out the small nozzles extending from the sides are vernier rockets, not ullage motors as I thought before. Ullage motors were introduced in Molniya, Vostok (and Luna) both used hot start technique, and had four small verniers for attitude control.

I agree with that. The capsule should also be more spherical, like Voskhod.
