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

Recommended Posts

Also, Soyuz Poll.

With N-1, I may re-visit some of the launcher colour schemes.

Because I feel: why not bring a little life into the grey, white and orange world?

I would keep the current scheme, but include these as options in the DL.

Congrats on the release, and thank you! I've been in the Kerbal community since 2012, and this is one of the best mods ever made. And you, Beale, are one of the best mod authors!

Stock with RealChutes installed. Could be misbehaving with RealChutes. I'll try uninstalling that to determine the cause...

Yeah, I've already stumbled with it, new RC causes some weird bugs to Tantares. Probably it would work if you remove the config from the RealChutes folder, but I'm not sure

Congratulazioni Beale!

Tantares never looked better IMHO. :D

Here a little Album about the first testflights. No Landing yet...it´s late here in germany..:P

Javascript is disabled. View full album

Only "Bug" i noticed: The new battery part is lockated in the science folder at the VAB.

Thanks for this awesome mod!!

Bug Report!

Soyuz parachute/decoupler shows up in staging with a blank icon. http://i.imgur.com/k66imyU.jpg

The new parachute has delivered its share of pain on me as well. It is significantly smaller than it should be, and it doesn't even have an icon on the staging diagram. Oh well, the Fuji docking port + parachute makes for a suitable alternative for now.

Yep. Something wrong with it. Node size maybe? Attachment depth? It's not playing nice currently... Also has an issue with RealChutes.

Still can't get enough of the new spektr its like something out of an old scifi movie :D it'd be a dream come true if there was a set of parts to go with it to make rockets in an organic cigar shaped V2'esque way perhaps something for the next tantares LV update?

Beale, all color variations is awesome! Put them all in alternative textures pack or make the Firespitter texture switcher config.

It's only a realchute bug. I've tried it with stock-only and it works fine.

Yeah, that's a brilliant idea! because the Soyuz booster has had many paintjobs over the years: from the plain white and black detailing of the early era, to the kaki (or soyuzgreen) with orange detailing of today.

I would have option 3, but with extra boosters from option 2.
I would keep the current scheme, but include these as options in the DL.
Anything green has my vote. The more green the merrier! (A hint or orange or red is ok, too.)
Defiantly need some green for these awesome launchers & crafts!!!!
My vote goes to #1. I'd like to have something in-between "Soviet Green" and "US Checkers".

Thankyou for all the feedback! :)

I think the preference is clear: people want choice!

Aw shucks :blush: many thanks!

Whoah!

I love that docking setup!

As for the battery, will fix.

For sure a RealChutes problem,

as Niemand has said, try deleting the Tantares config from the realchutes folder.

Still can't get enough of the new spektr its like something out of an old scifi movie :D it'd be a dream come true if there was a set of parts to go with it to make rockets in an organic cigar shaped V2'esque way perhaps something for the next tantares LV update?

Glad it is liked!

Interesting idea there :)

Woaaah great rework, any craft files available?

Thanks!

Sadly not yet!

Ermm...

Also, there is no IVA in Soyuz? That's bad.:(

This is an old texture left over, I'd recommend a clean re-install.

IVA, yeah, it is not so good. Hopefully I can get those in soon.

IMO, No.2 looks best, but none of these will fit with a plain-grey Proton...

Beale, you asked for screenies... Well, here they are!

And some from the heavy-spaceplane-designing-process:

I'm not sure it's so bad considering IRL difference in colour between Soyuz and Proton, but, fair point.

I love the Burya! :)

Update from my testflights: (Operation: Bughunt :P)

Thanks for bug-hunting!

The first one is odd, I could not reproduce, so I may chalk it up to random physics weirdness.

The second one: Yeah, the VA needs a new IVA quite badly: see the reason I removed the old Soyuz IVA.

A small comment / suggestion - the new Stock Mk3 Shuttle parts are using a "placeholder" IVA that might come in handy for the ones you've yet to complete / rework. That at least give the player the crew portrait down on the lower right, though they seem to be living in a darkened, window-less box.

My friend, that is a fantastic idea!

I'll see to that pretty quickly! :)
