There's already so many solar panel options. One niche one wouldn't be too bad at all.

Maybe you are right.

Older style panels are a good option:

I would like to pick up a few things from HGR that I liked.

I, uh, personally think you should spend as much time as you need on Soyuz before moving on to N1.

:wink:

I also have much else to do before next release:

  • Finish Cygnus
  • Finish Fobos Grunt
  • Finish Soyuz

oh? I thought you were doing Soyuz then N1, now that you've done LK you will have refreshed your whole moonshot stack.

Yes you are on the right trail, sadly I have done as usual and lost track of plans :D 
The N1 and Moon poodles (maybe some science parts?) is the immediate priority soon.

As even more, I had installed a new computer and not yet installed Unity (But, of course Wings3D and Photoshop!).

After finally arriving at a workable UR700, I can see why they scrapped the design. Using an N1 variant is a lot less convoluted.

Plus it had a far smaller chance of giving the entire population of Kazakhstan cancer.

I am really not :) I got into photography instead. i also have a hot girlfriend now... No time for Rocket models :/  Kinda of a shame cause I'd love to make my impression of Spacex MCT... 

 

Your talents are missed here, that's for sure. But I agree that a hot girlfriend can be far more interesting that rocket models!

does KSP allow for more combined modules these days? I recall being ahead of my time

 CBBP! You live! Not to hijack Beale's thread or take anything away from him 'cause his mod rocks, but I agree with Mr. Wolfe your talents are missed. Hope you find time to once again let us fly your creations.

Heh! I can't believe that is possible, nice! :cool:

Solar panels!

There was this post from ages ago, and I thought these sort of panels by curtquarquesso would be coming, and I was hyped. This is something I want to see happen.

Yeah! The question is, does @Beale have those files somewhere.

Additionally, @Beale have you seen @curtquarquesso recently? I've missed him.

I also use the N1 stack to launch LK-700 (MK-700 :-)  ) missions, ends up being a LOT simpler as you pointed out.
Also a LOT cheaper in career mode. Constructing a functional UR-700 work-alike is over a quarter of a million funds, whereas the N1 stack (in my SSP mod anyway) is less than half that.

Let's just ping @Beale some more and maybe he'll notice us.

To answer: sadly no to both questions, I think the files are long lost (from moving PC and life events).

Sadly too, no sign of curtquarquesso in a very long time now, my right hand man is "MIA:( 
But, of course, people have lives to deal with.

Would you take offense if I stole the SSP money amounts? :) 
I think they are a lot better than my own.

Ah!

Thanks for digging those from hundreds of pages ago, I had forgotten them.
The panels were in-game at one point, but I remember two problems:

  • Hard to tell direction the unfold (This can be fixed with different texture).
  • Mentioned earlier, hard to place on anything but a 1.25m cylinder.

So the main problem is modularity.. maybe we can have couple sizes of these? Because I know that the mir modules and the russian iss modules had panels that folded in the same way..(also when it's not folded that way it means that you need wider fairing on the proton which makes it look weird)

I think maybe...
It's a tricky decision, either design may make some unhappy, I do not really want to support separate alternatives (snug fold + normal fold + sun tracking + static + shenzou panels) 8 variants! 8!

Can also do different style entirely solar panels that fold tighter to fairings?

These are nice, but they're so.. bland. Too much grey. I suggest adding more color, especially to the engine block.
