Landing gear the way you want it!

Download from SpaceDock

v1.2.0 Update Info

v1.1.1 Update Info

v1.1.0 Update info

No longer requires Firespitter!

This is a small part pack of landing gear that you can adjust to suit your needs.

Currently there are three parts: The standard single wheel version, and a slightly buffed two-wheel version and a larger 4-wheel version (although, all parts can be rescaled).

Using the tweakable sliders you can change:

- Ride height

- Leg angle

- Wheel angle

- Suspension spring

- Suspension damper

- Scale

- Brake torque

- Max steering angle

You can also click on "Auto-align wheel" to make the wheels perpendicular to the ground.

It also has steering and a motor.

Similar to the B9 wheels, you can "Toggle Heatshielding" to turn the bay doors black!

-Note: These are intended for use in the SPH only.

Wow I totally forgot to fix something at the last minute. I uploaded v1.0.1, but the only difference is:

- Set "useCustomParticleFX = true" in bdAdjLGside.cfg

so it has the particle effects on tire screeching.

Wow, this will really help with spaceplanes, because now there's much less fear of tailstrikes when you try jacking up the nose for takeoff lift. I've always been annoyed at the shortness of the stock landing gear.

Cool! I have been waiting for a mod like this. Some of the AJE engines need a lot of clearance.

I really like these landing gear. They might very well be the only ones I ever use from this point on. Thanks for making them.

it's the little things that make this extra great - like the fact that the wheel bay doors stay closed while the landing gear are deployed. Very cool!

The final solution to all clearance, footprint, stability and veering issues the old gear were prone to. :) I really love this mod.

I was excited by the video a few days back. They do everything I could want of landing gear save one - docking to carrier decks!

Make sure you have the firespitter plugin. It uses the firespitter wheel module, so it requires the Firespitter plugin despite that plugin not being included in the download.

I've been looking at your profile every day, seeing if you had release it already. Can't wait to try it out.

Excellent stuff, solves a lot of problems.

One tiny issue, if the brakes are triggered while the gear is moving, the indicator light won't go back to blue again.

Also a thought: Would it possible/useful to have the leg's forward/backward angle adjustable as well?

I have the same problem, yet I installed it. Does the Firespitter plugin need to be in a certain folder or something? It does seem to load it as it says it's not compatible with 0.25 (which is weird since I got the latest version).

Can anyone tell me where in the tech tree this is real quick, please say the node after the first stock gear. ;)
