[0.21.X] Rocketdyne F-1 Liquid Engine (Saturn V main engines) UPDATED v1.2

Recommended Posts

A 1:1 replica of the F-1 engines used on the Saturn V moon rockets. It has the same realistic size, weight thrust and ISP and probably a bit OP for Kerbals.

It is highly detailed (custom low-poly mesh) with lots of textures, smoke and even lights for added effect. Not suitable for regular laptop users.

Version 1.2:

Is that 100% scale, or 64% scale? The latter is more "correct" for a Kerbalized engine.

That seems like a 100% scaled engine, I believe it's also the intent, just as for nyrath's Orion. Anyway, awesome job, that engine looks awesome :) I guess it'S about the size of 3.75m tanks?

Mmm, beefy.

Looks like its a 2.5m engine to me, unless its just weird perspective in the screenshot.

Yeah, it should fit 2.5m mounts. Speaking of which, could you give us back the 5x2.5m mount from NP?

I am planning to make a mount, but since this is realistic size, and the real Saturn V is 10m in diameter, it won't be a 5x2.5, more like 5x4m or 5x3.75m mount.

If so, go for a 6.25m or 6.4m mount. And scale the engine down a bit (to 64%). A properly scaled Saturn V would be about that size in KSP. Keep in mind, there are no fuel tanks that big (at least since NP scaled down...), you'd have to use procedural ones.

I think I've fallen in love, again... I can't wait to blow something up with this strapped on to it......... :)

100% custom made, along with texture.

wow nice work, runs quite smooth even for a 33,102 poly model!

Oh yes! I cannot wait to strap this onto my heavy launcher and watch it tear itself to pieces.

Wow this is impressive work. I'm loving the detail and attention you put into it.

Thank you for sharing.

It does fit 2.5m parts, but it looks best on 5m parts. Very well done, btw. Looks beautiful and still runs great on this outdated workhorse computer. I rarely put anything into orbit that weighs more than 15-20 tons, and after running a couple of quick test flights earlier today I think the F-1 may be able to power an SSTO capable of lifting same. Will have to do some more testing once I reinstall the 5m LFTs from whichever addon they are in. :D

It's purty. How did you get the exhaust fx looking like that?

9 additional virtual thrust points, throttle back to see what I did.
