[1.0.2]HGR 1.875m parts(v1.3.0 released)


Recommended Posts

Hello, welcome to Home Grown Rocket parts, a healthy alternative for your part needs.

This mod features many Stock alike command pods and an all new diameter of parts. My pods are mostly inspired by real world spacecraft and given a Kerbalized twist. The 1.875m parts in the pack allow for you to build medium sized rockets, for those times when the standard tanks are too small and rockomax is too big. The tanks are themed liked the Soyuz and Long March rockets, giving your space agency an all new feel. There's also a few odds and ends thrown in for good measure. These parts have been balanced for career mode.

Thanks for the words of encouragement everyone. I've only just started learning how to create and texture 3d objects in the last month or so and I'm mostly using various online tutorials. I plan to update as I get better, but its something that takes a lot of practice so it could be slow going for now.

Unfortunately in order to fit both kerbals into the IVA side by side the pod has to stick out a bit. The Mk1 Lander Can sticks out a little too and usually looks fine, so I figured it wouldn't be too big of an issue.

Actually, with the tapered back it looks fine to me, kind of like a cross between an Atlas V's fairings and a Gemini pod. If your going for stock-alike tough I would dull down the colour of the windows and fade out the edges of the panelling a bit. That would make this pretty much the best pod ever, and would work great with the ASET ALCOR.

I agree. I also think that you should really consider adding RasterProp's glass cockpit support.

I agree.

I do not fully agree, as the shape might cause some problems by adding drag at the top of the rocket. The pod looks good though, so maybe that an equally wide service module can make things just right.

While you've done a great job with making a capsule, I don't really feel that it's very stockalike - it feels more like the old style of the stock parts. It could use some work on the textures, but the IVA and the model looks really great.

Actually, due to the tapered back end the drag increase would be minimal in FAR, and Wouldn't make much of a difference in the long run.

Only when it is subtly tapering. (Moderately) abrupt tapering causes drag and other trouble.
