[1.7.X] Tantares - Stockalike Soyuz and MIR [18.0][14/07/2019]

Recommended Posts

Seeing the unpainted, bare-metal N-1 fly in Kerbal is something special. I wonder what color it would have been painted if they ever solved all the issues? Military green?

Matte white. The grey and partially white paint used in versions preceding 7L created heat issues, so every version after 6L would be all the way white.

I still say a 1.875m R7/Soyuz stack would be pretty epic ...... just throwing the raw meat out on the table ..... ;-)

Do you mean a simple rescale or different proportions?

Is there any way you could change the shape on those boosters? The IRL ones are much more curved and thicker towards the top. I think I pointed this out last R7 iteration but I can't remember how I worded it. :P

I'm not sure what is correct, I am using this reference.

I think a 1.25 core and 1.875 or 1.5 boosters would also cool  (for example BDB/Trails already have 1.5 capsule)

I think 1.5m is only an off size if you let it be one, Beale. But we've already discussed this before. :)

There's not much else that can be 1.5m, I don't really mind 1.875m parts because they will be well supported with other parts in the mod.

TantaresLV not updated?

That's right!

 

 

Release parts now or wait for Soyuz rocket?

well... the vostok is just a little under 1.5 when scaled to kerbal (0.64) ...

Edit: also the soyuz service module lower part is 1.5 , I do get your point but at the same time 1.5 can be expanded a bit..(1.875 boosters would still be really nice:P

I don't use 64% scale, I'm not sure where you get that number.
The Soyuz is 1.25m and everything else is roughly scaled from that.

Version 1.0

  • N1 Family of launch vehicles.

Let me know if you find any bugs.

This version is not compatible with previous versions of TantaresLV, or previous save files. Be careful!

Many thanks for those assisting with reference images and more!

@hraban no grid fins out of the box, I am trying to animate them :)

Hello Beale, it would not be a big effort to provide the stabilizers with an animation. You have the result until 20.12.2016.

It doesn't look like Blok D, its associated engine, or the decoupler that fits between it and LK is in the download. Also a bunch of other decouplers (the white ones with the Red arrows on them)

@Beale Looks like you switched the file path in Model for both parts of the Blok-D. You have it as 

MODEL
{
   model = TantaresLV/SUS/Parts/BlokD_LFO_A
}

And it should be

MODEL
{
   model = TantaresLV/Parts/SUS/BlokD_LFO_A
}

Mostly meaning re-scale.
Trying to get the proportions exactly RL accurate between the parts (different tank radii between booster and core, etc) would mean sacrificing a lot of the multi-use functionality your parts are great for etc etc.

I only use a rescaled 1.875m R7 rocket. I just scaled everything up by 1.5 in the configs. Looks better IMHO.

I tried that, but it was causing problems sometimes changing camera views and loading saves. :-(

Hi 

I installed the Tantares - Stockalike Soyuz and MIR mod and found the Gamedata files to be the same files for New TantaresLV - Stockalike Launch Vehicles mod. Did I miss something or was it uploaded accidentally with the same files?

Thank you.

Thanks, fixed.

is new tantaresLV meant to overwrite an old one? was tantares (not tantaresLV) updated too?

Tantares has been updated for a bit now, however the Tantares LV update included a full revamp of some (all?) rockets, so it took longer.

Why is the new TantaresLV missing all the Soyuz stuff? Seems to have a lot less compared to old LV.

 

Its a new mod, he started it over from a "clean slate"

It also doesn't look like the Hippo LES is in the new release either.

Speaking of launch escape systems, if I made an LES for the N-1, would you add it to the mod? Something like this: Related image

(It would probably take me a while to make because I have lots of schoolstuffs and such)
