Tantares русский

Huge thanks to @TK-313 who has done a large job translating Tantares into Russian and providing a localisation file, his work is now available by GitHub and will be released fully shortly.
This was a very large task and he has saved me a lot of work creating localisation strings for all the parts also, three cheers for a real stand-up guy!

One thing's for sure, you can almost always tell a Russian design. They are certainly unique and very 50's futuristic.

They look very good indeed. And without departing from that "stock" feel,  which is excellent!

The aesthetics of tantares is doing magic,  by looking its own thing at the same time it does not stray away from that generic stock looks that is so necesaary for a parts mod,  not to feel too odd. A difficult balance!

Seems like I had to send more science modules to my old station after all!

I can't send science without a reusable rocket! Boostback burn:

wrong thread?

on topic: @Beale tested Fobos out on a Ike mission. So far I like it, the non rotating solar panels add a level of challenge. Dish is necessarily OP.

look at the station. Its easy to see how you'd think that though, since most of the pics are tundra stuff.

Very nice Venera!

In theory the Venera Mars and Fobos / Mars 96 are all the same basic bus, it could expand in future.

It's a really cool mission, actually the landing is just :o

I am interested to hear why you think this - The dish is a little lighter than the stock tier 1 relay, but the vulnerability of wind resistance is a balancing factor?  I may have made it too easy.

 

 

Heavy work in progress!

I would suggest maybe adding in/ changing the orientation of the solar panels so that they can fit onto the side of the soyuz engine properly. You can't really see it in the screenshot but the way that the solar panels are mounted on is rather ghetto and ugly.

:)

Would you like an IVA with that?

Spoiler

And could you please maybe friend me on Discord so we can chat? I haven't been able to contact anyone since I got banned from the [NAME CLASSIFIED] and I still don't know why, I'm pretty much being actively ignored at this point and it's liquiding me off.

Sadly there really is no other way to put the panels, they need to fold that way for Fobos.

Re: Discord, not my business and nothing I can do, you will have to take it up with the server owner.

 

 

 

A little more more more!

To make it even more MIR like, just add green mold all over the surface!  Space Mold!

Which docking port should I use with the LOK docking mechanism? btw the new Salyut/Mir parts look awesome!

You know, not so far from the truth!

Currently you have to use one of the Soyuz female ports unfortunately, I plan to do a real Kontact passive port soon. @tjsnh (I think) had the idea to make it a claw somehow, so no pair port was needed.

Thanks!

Many thanks!

You can rebuild also, but crafts should be totally fine I think, no parts will be removed.

 

Extremely heavy work in progress!

It works with the other small passive ports.
