Sorry, unfortunately not.

 

Unrelated, I am working on somewhere to land the Fobos.... Phobos Hosbop

The Proton materials were corrected so that it is white, and not... grey.

@Beale, can I ask you how you achieved this? Because when I stage the fairing on my Salyut-7, it goes like this, and that's with solar panels moved inwards:

I am not sure to be honest, nothing special. Did you make the ejection force harder?

No, all as provided in the pack... And there seems to be a good clearance between the panels and the fairing:

UPD: Huh. So the ejection force was the issue. As soon as I set it to 50 instead of the stock 100, the solar panels more or less stopped falling apart.

Aha, I would suggest much higher! 
I should update the default values, 500 provides better clearance usually.

Meanwhile, fairing time!

Fairing patch for the FGB/TKS pod now includes the Salyut/Mir upper section:

	panelGrouping = 3
	pivot = 0,-0.0625,0
	axis = 0,-1,0
	
	baseRadius = 1.25
	maxRadius = 3
	capRadius = 0.15
	snapThreshold = 0.1
	
	xSectionHeightMin = 0.3

	stagingEnableText = Fairing Not Staged

}
}

Is there any chance you will add airlocks to crewed parts that don't have them?

It might look like nothing, but actually it is a big problem. You see, if you take a rescue contract, it can spawn any part that has space for one or more kerbal. You obviously need to use EVA to transfer the said kerbal to your rescue craft... I guess you see the problem. The only way to fix it is to edit your save.

That a problem with the stock contract rescue mission. The game don't check the part to see if the module have a hatch. For that really not a Tantares problem.

Solution:

- Use the "Klaw" to grap the part in flight and return on home.

- Use the Mod  [1.3.1] KSP Rescue Pod Validator

The way I see it, that is great - it's a legitimate problem you must use your wits and ideas to solve, cargo bays, the claw, KIS attach a docking port, KIS attach an airlock.

Don't you agree?

I know..nuts question... KSP 1.1.3... the versions to use for this particluar release are Tantares 36.0 and Tantares LV 17.0?

I have my reasons, flawed as they are.

Lunokhod-1 

Add-on Discussions : A general discussion place for talk of all add-ons, and the place to request them.

Post a picture of what you want for the game, is not a good choice. Be happy with the existing part of Tantares Mod. All this stuff need a enormous mount of work.

There's a nice way to do that...

Lunokhod and other landers etc are mostly outside the scope of Tantares as is but @akron is actively developing Coatl with an excellent Venera Spacecraft/Lander that fits perfectly on Beale's Proton and he has even stated an intention to make Lunokhod down the line

Thank you for the mention.

I'll be working on Lunokhod-related hardware fairly soon

Speaking of more parts to come, I remember this list from the days of old...

On 05.04.2017 at 9:55 PM, Beale said:

What are we lacking? Well: (Marked bold are questionable items).

  • Priroda (Have the basic FGB body, but missing the big antenna, a lot of science parts).
  • Kvant-1 (Still missing the tug).
  • Docking Module (A full MIR module on it's own right, but bundled in with the Progress parts).
  • Progress itself.
  • FGB RCS parts (They're kind of cool).
  • FGB cargo-bay to keep @tjsnh happy :wink: (And myself to be honest).  
  • FGB Radiator
  • Mir-2 Truss.
  • Mir-2 Poisk / Pirs.
  • Mir-2 Micro-modules (Progress based).
  • Mir-2 Mega solar array.
  • Mir-2 Solar concentrator.
  • Shorter monopropellant tanks.

And I'm super curious about how questionable the questionable Mir-2 parts are these days. Especially the solar concentrators. Because, well, they are cool.

I will look to find out which version exactly, but first, why 1.1.3?

Are the MIR-2 Progress modules supposed to be Progress M2 based, like the Enterprise module for ISS?

There are a few MIR-2 modules I am familiar with, but maybe more.
Many thanks for the link.

Right now I really need to fix the TKS parts / Proton, etc.
