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

Recommended Posts

I was just going thru my mod list, and cleaning house and updating mods I have collected, and came across the original .7z for one of versions of this mod...

Since there seems to be some (relatively) recent interest in this (abandoned?) mod, and the original links are dead, I repacked the .7z to .zip, and renamed it to closer match the title of this thread...thats all i changed: contents are all original.

Based on the open license included in the archive, i figured i would throw it up on my GoogleDrive for awhile, in case someone else wants to grab it and resurrect this...i guess there other versions of the F-1 out there in other mods, but here ya go if you want THIS one I guess...

OLD, lower memory version:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0D_PFGuuyqobXAtcm5LV1h4WDg/view?usp=sharing

EDIT- Doh!...I should have read a couple pages back, instead of just going from first page to last page in the thread...

I see NathanKell has a link where you can get the other version...

i grabbed it, also just renamed it, and threw it up on my googleDrive also (Hope you dont mind NathanKell...If you want me to take it down, just PM me):

NEW, larger memory version:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0D_PFGuuyqoZUd0UE9ERkY1Uk0/view?usp=sharing

EDIT #2: Ugh...I somehow downloaded the same version for both links... :(

its fixed now...Way to tell, is the NEW version should be 23.6MB when extracted, OLD version should be 3.9MB when extracted...Sorry...I need to learn not to post stuff like this that requires some brain function, after 11:00PM...lol

Found this by chance on CKAN, and this might be the prettiest part for KSP I've seen so far. Wow. For practical usage one needs to make a few changes to the cfg, but damn this is beautiful.

This same engine is used in FASA.

Does anyone know if this engine works under 1.1? I found it on ckan for 1.1 but can't find it in the VAB. Maybe anyone can help. Thanks.

You might try running a cfg like this

@PART[*]:HAS[~TechRequired[]]:Final
{
	TechRequired = start
        entryCost = 1200
        cost = 250
}

Looking at the cfg it's missing a couple of things

Thank you! It worked out pretty well. Theres just a feature I noticed: It's not able to fully shutdown the engine. Is this correct?

The F-1 is still the most Explosive, no no no I mean, Powerful single-chamber liquid-fueled rocket engine ever developed.

Thank you again. This works very nice and powers my contracted station to it's mars orbit.
