Known Issues/Problems

Tweakscale is not that good at the moment in resizing automatically for my parts

Sepacones sometimes have a very strong kick, I recommend reducing its thrust.

The released version's Kerbal X has KW Rocketry struts, use this patch to solve that problem

Recommendations:

Aerojet Kerbodyne to match with the new launchers.

Active Texture Management if running out of memory

*Smokescreen in contained in package is made by Sarbian (and the rest of the developers that helped him, credit goes to them). Firespitter is made by Snjo as well as modulemanager and modulefixer.dll files, those aren't mine. I only take credit on my parts.

If you want to help the development of this project greatly, you can donate some feedback or criticism.

Hmmm, the exhaust in picture number 6 of the album does look a bit weird. I think you should change the cfg so that the fire behaves like it does in stock, that'd be more realistic. Otherwise, it looks great. I kinda like that "modernized stockalike" look that you have going.

Does this even look any good? Don't mind the lighting problems yet on the mesh. I made this as an attempt to make the wide fairing on Kerbal X. Their should be Wide and Tall fairing.

Look at the HotRockets! thread. nazari has a pretty cool tutorial. To have smoke, use the BACC as a starting point :D

Indeed. Can't wait to take it for a spin!

Ditto! I always thought the Falcon was cool! Especially with its landing stages.

Design? I have no idea, really, does it look bad?

Looks fine to me, very kerbal. :) Might look good with boosters coming right up to the taper as well.
