I read there was some progress, they might have kerbpaint working again soon, or did you change the texture dds?

Yes, I edited the dds in paint.net.

I copied the layer, selected the cone bit, deleted the background and made it green with a little shade.

It's very easy when you know how to do it. (It took me a week) :lol:

Guess what I'm working on...^_^

I would do that to my fairings because kerbpaint is not able to paint them, it's also a pretty easy paint job on the fairings

Haven't decided whether to use a custom black fairing or change the stock textures

I can't decide

Which bay door is better for the X-20?

Small elevon bay door

Doesn't fit as smooth as the airbrake door when closed but the size is more reasonably (small).

I think I'd have to go with the airbrakes cause it looks so smooth when closed and not too bad when opened in my opinion. Great ingenuity by the way, creating your own 1.25m cargo bay like that. Is the finished product gonna be a mini space shuttle sorta deal?

@Yukon0009I agree, airbrakes looks better.

I changed the pitot tube of my Mig-21 to something that won't break off. I also clipped in counter-productive control surfaces, to imitate stalls when pitching up hard. (clipping isn't cheating if it's meant to decrease the performance, right?)

I'm now more likely to slam into the ground or other objects, but performance is still good enough:

Not a fan of the antenna bit, reminds me of Boba Fett's helmet, about clipping, well, if we don't see it, it isn't there,also,there are too many comma's in this sentence.

Have to agree with triop, not really a fan. Have you tried the surface mount communotron? Works fairly well, and is impervious to aero pressure issues.

Thinking about another film, maybe a mini-series

Nice! If Squad is interested in the work I'm doing over here, we might have the ability to sink stock ships someday in the future. If you guys like it too, give the topic some attention.
