The RD-858/859 IRL is really cool, though I can't replicate it in KSP, there is a single nozzle exhaust now.

Thought the RD 858 was possible in ksp :thonk: from RN soviet spacecraft.

Anyway, the one exhaust chamber looks nice also ! That perfect round shape is tasty !

Incredible LK! Really fills this out with the better landing legs , the life support box is also a nice touch :)

Comrade, you have proven your skill.

Awesome! Just don't forget the orbiter :D

Minor tweaks to colours across both mods, the Red for Meteor and the fairings is now a lot more vibrant, closer to the real things in both references.

Poll is a lot closer than I expected, we might need to find a compromise (olive?).

@tygoo7 @DriftedCougar interested to hear what you would like.

Do you mean that this is not possible or that you don't have time for that? There is another mod by Raidernick who has an LK as well: https://github.com/KSP-RO/SovietSpacecraft/

He recreated the engine assembly pretty accurately, with the RD-858, RD-859 and the vernier thrusters as separate parts:

Maybe you could take a look at these and see if you can replicate that? I'd love to use your version of the Lander, it's truly beautiful.

So I should expand a little on the design:

- Kept compatible with the frame, which has a hollow opening of 0.5m, circle mount of 0.625m.
- No engine failure (not supporting any mods that do it either) - so little reason to do 858/859.
- Matching shape would make it less versatile.
- Engine can't hang beneath the frame because of its versatile setup (This really makes the unique shape impractical).

So there are a few restrictions to mesh with. I think there is one of the occasions where fun > accuracy.

Maybe I'll do a naked RD-858-859 eventually.

Oh, I might do the "verniers" also, but just trying to pin down the source on their function / layout / anything.

Argh, you are making such awesome LKs before it is even finished!

 

The "Hat" will become separate parts (Physicsless so no performance worries). It's a cute Mono tank and allows deeper abominations.
Flick between the last two images for a FUN animation.

Github

  • New mono tanks
  • Adjusted engine balance, it has a much lower thrust than the old engine, but can maintain a >1 TWR on Kerbin thanks to the improved SL ISP. Neat!

Don't worry, I will fix the FX soon.
After some help with sources, may add the triple-nozzle design back.

I believe the buildings are Tundra Space Center (or the other one @damonvv makes) and the launch pad stuff is from Modular Launch Pads.
