[1.8.X] Tantares - Stockalike Soyuz and MIR [20.0][10/11/2019]

Recommended Posts

Hi!

Though 1.875m parts would give perfect scale for TKS, I am not sure if I would like to embark on this road. The 1.875m parts work in the HGR pack because the creator has put in work and made a whole new subsytem of 1.875m parts (engines, structure, tanks).

To make the TKS VA 1.875 in diameter is kind of a risk, as I would at minimum have to create some basic adapters to normal sizes.

More thoughts? I am a fan of teeny-tiny craft myself, but I am quite strange in this it seems.

IMO to make a 1.875m tks the parts needed are few.

A frontal cone with orbit engines (0.625 lower node)

The AV reentry capsule (0.625 upper node , 1.875 lower node)

TKS main body (a 1.875 cylinder)

a 1.875 to 2.5 cone

and a 2.5 to 1.25 cone to complete the ship and where attach the docking port.

could you compile all of the download links into one?

combining it on my computer gives me... issues...

I add them now, keep an eye open! :)

I'd use your stockalike soyuz for reference, but I think that would work pretty well. You could always do a quick scaled drawing of them to see which looks best to you.

Hard to get any good non-perspective pics of the TKS, 1.25m closer fits soyuz size, but 1.875m closer meets Salyut size

First 1.875m

Then 1.25m

I think that a 1.875 m TKS would be perfect, you can add a couple of adapters to 1,25 and 2,5 meters (they shouldn't be too difficult to make) and say "if you want more 1.875 m parts you can also download HGR pack!

I have built a TKS, but I think that 2.5 m is too big:

Yeah, 2.5m is for sure too big. The HGR packs existence is a nice benefit in making the 1.875m TKS (+ it is already a stock style pack).

IMO to make a 1.875m tks the parts needed are few.

and a 2.5 to 1.25 cone to complete the ship and where attach the docking port.

Here is with your dimensions! I do like it!

Fuji-2: return of the Fuji, is coming well, I will have something exciting to show soon. :wink:

(Some people may ask about Progress, I was making it "quick" (re-textured Soyuz), but I think I will re-think how I was going to do it (new meshes) )

where did you get the fuji?

From the past :wink:

The guy is free to upload it if he wants, I sadly have deleted all my old working files for it (new one is soon!).

Oh, and I add the master collection, check first page!

Edit: I have a picture of the strange old thing from eons ago.

Back then we used to fly to the Mun wearing onions on our belts, as was the style at the time.

Much excite!

Haha! Thankyou.

It also to know that I am working on some normal maps.

BUT

I would really like some advice on how best to create them,

Current tests are promising, ish. (door)

These parts are very, very good. I'll sling some rep your way once I'm back on a desktop. It's nice to have more 1 and 2 kerbal capsules to choose from.

I do have a question, though. Is it possible to use the 1-kerbal alternate Tantares alongside the 2-kerbal version? I tried to set up an alternate config last night by renaming the IVA configs so it wouldn't conflict with the 2-kerbal version, but ended up with an invisible IVA. Is there something baked into the model that needs to change? (And if so, could we talk you into it?) Or did I just not rename enough parts? (It was late enough I could probably blame sleep deprivation.) Thanks.

It should be perfect possible, maybe you did not rename enough things? You must rename the name of IVA inside the "internal.cfg" in the IVA folder (make sure each IVA have each own folder).

Then in both 1-seat and 2-seat configs you reference each IVA.

Please let me know if you have trouble :) .

oh, hi CERVERUS!

Hi my friend,how are you?

I'm great, thanks!

I don't know about blender, but if you ever decide to use sketchup, I can help!

I made a quick TKS with your parts to illustrate the ideal size compared to the saylut:

Thank-you!!

This has totally convinced me, the TKS will be 1.875m (diameter of mid-section salyut).

Cool. That's what I thought I did, but I'm not 100% sure. I'll give it another shot tonight. Thanks!

I think my computer's confused by your download, because I keep getting a unopenable file called: TST_ALL[1.0](1).7z

I don't know If I did something wrong, or if somethings wrong with the download.

maybe my computer can't comprehend the awesomeness

help

I had the same problem. I don't know what it is, but perhaps try on a different computer if at all possible.
