[1.7.X] Tantares - Stockalike Soyuz and MIR [19.0][22/09/2019]

Recommended Posts

Well, I'm off work, and it is snowing very heavily. Modding time eh.

YES! Thank You Beale! Also, why not have procedural fairings textures just for this (sorry, may have more suggestions still coming). Also, I have asked several modders this, but would you create a pack of spacecraft parts smaller than that of stock 0.625 meter parts (i.e. parts about 0.35 - 0.05 meters).

Thank you

-Astrofox

I'm using some custom PF textures now, I'll see if I can upload them.

Does anyone have pics of a station using the Mir and Salyut parts in this pack? I need some ideas because I'm planning to build a space station in my career mode. :)

I have a MIR-alike floating around "somewhere", I'll see if I can get you some pics. :)

Just tried out the new beta soyuz.

Works good for me.

One question - the new docking port.

Do you plan on releasing a "female" version of the port, or will it link up ok with one/any/some of the existing docking port parts?

The female port, yes, it is model and textured. But not in game yet.

And - it will link with stock 0.625m ports :)

hey beale, i seem to have problems changing the size of the parachutes. am i doing something wrong here? ( i deleted the original soyuz folder and replaced it with the beta one if that is of any info)

Unfortunately I cannot see the content you posted.

What trouble are you having, to change the size of the parachute base (I.E. 0.625m to 1.25m) or to change the canopy?

Maybe I can help :)

Hey, here are the configs: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9y1wqvsw4uucsqg/RF_configs.zip?dl=0

The only matter, it won't work with RF Stockalike configs, you need manually delete the lines about Tantares from StockAlike_Engines_RF.cfg in RealFuels folder.

Very nice! (And the screenshots too).

I've included them in the file structure.

Also, here is another beta (with the new Progress included).

I will give a little play with these soon.

I think you have done this before also a long time ago? With the KSO shuttle?

Or maybe I'm thinking of somebody else.

It's very cool, I should try this! :)

I have a nice shuttle working (But you need to manually drag the thrust on ascent)

I did something similar, but not using Tantares parts.

Nice little shuttle! :)

I have the same problem with the engines of my shuttle, yesterday i found this mod that could be the solution to that kind of problems!

A question about the revamp: the new docking ports will break the stations that use the old one?

Edit:

Fantastic LOK!

Many thanks :)

That's a great mod! Never found it, I will use this a lot, I think!

About docking ports: They should not break compatibility with old stations - that is they retain size and dockingNode, but, maybe you might want to replace them, to be sure. :sealed:

If you are feeling brave: download the Beta, backup your save game and see if it all explodes / wiggles when loading, if not, you are probably safe.

docking in space with russian technology is so wonderfull :D

It is true!

Now we need stock heterogeneous ports to make them work correctly!

Beale, now when new MK3 parts are released, can you just make Buran Engine because it would be enough to make a real Buran because all shuttles are relatively similar. Maybe a tail fin too?

Home from work and Beale's designed even more new Tantares parts. :cool: Rustalians work hard!

I posted my WIP Tantares MIR a few pages back. curtquarquesso also shared his MIR which is more complete (it just needs the Soyuz and Progress).

I don't want to spam this thread with spaceplane since Tantares is rocket-focused, but I finalised my Tanta-MIG design. I built it as a sub-orbital jet, but surprisingly it made it to orbit with 1014m/s of DeltaV left; enough to achieve orbit around the Mun. Flew it home, almost crashed into the mountains, and landed it with 839m/s left.

a "rescaleFactor = xx" does not work for you?

That is odd :(

Tell me how it goes with the reinstall.

LOK AO stuff.

Need to preserve enough space for the Shenzou...

Maybe... It could be a nice Castor part...

Gah, I had forgotten there was a nice MIR example only a few pages back.

Nice you have achieved SSTO! Even if accidentally.

well this is kinda wierd. havent touched rescalefactor yet but...

7UCN54EFOBoSXH55o2SgtliXC-u29295TxmtyOX_EwfAxpoLnxciDUmk5fsCPq79DRBbE-G5FXg=w1896-h835

this is what i see when i just placed the chute on the capsule, but once i load onto the pad:

rYB-SG_tAnUHceiYA3ZV78iVlgIWgHwUlNrytgpQuUsMq-1XgqGAp3nYXMQ2wNsQBzbviHLZpXM=w1896-h835

its becomes its correct size. :/ well i guess it isnt really a big problem.

but the Next Size and Previous size buttons doesnt work like the previous screenshot.

ps: if you cant see the pics:

Hmmm, I am confused, you are using Tweakscale? (The next size button?)

Very odd thing is happening.

I assume LOK will have some sort of fuel cell for power generation?

The configs will remain mostly unchanged, so sure :)

My goodness, look at the ( á° Üʖ á°)

It's still missing some detail, but you get the idea. :)

There'll be even MORE detail? Wow.

The latest shots at the bottom are "finished". So now I will move onto TKS, slowly, eh.

IVAs , on hold until the production of props is complete, there has been some exciting developments here, hopefully will show some soon.

Can you give a run down of Fugi assembly?

OM

Parachute

Fuji B0ss

Heatshield

RCS Boom

Fuel tank

Engine

Solar panels and RCS

In that order.

Cool - I was close...

I used that ugly stock Decoupler because funds - and I needed to ditch the SM for reentry while keeping the Heatshield attached O_O;

Did you include a Heatshield? I didn't see one...

Nevermind, found it...

I think the tweakscale issue(if there is a tweakscale issue) is that Tantares had a config way back before the TKS. This config may be broken by the remodel. (Again, this is purely an uninformed hypothesis)

EDIT: also, is there still a chance at seeing CARV and/or alternate Fuji OMs?

Tried Mk3 cootie in 0.25, looks (and weights, and that is so goddamn important for me!) great so far.Solar panels on high air friction just disappears, is that how they supposed to be (yeah, I used hack-gravity-float-nears-KSC-trick for testing)?
