Having a great time building all sorts of stuff with this mod....... but.....

Every time I try to have the crew EVA, they are getting stuck in the craft....

is there some way that I can re-assign where the little dudes pop out?????

thanks.

Had the same issue. I ended up always putting a cargo bay behind the cockpit till it gets fixed

If you click on the hatch on the bottom of the cockpit you can have kernels come out of there.

What landing legs are you using there?

I made those by part welding some of the Infernal Robotics Model Rework structural pieces.

Really like these parts. I think the current shape is fine, but I'm not so sure about the size in comparison to the Mk3 parts. I feel like it should be the case that the mk4 appears much bigger overall than the mk3, but the mk3 is currently much taller. It would seem better to me if the mk4 parts were scaled up from current by at least 1.1x. And the fuel tanks all seem to have a bit of a low capacity for their size. Not sure if it's just me getting confused by the unusual geometry, though. Also, adapters to mk3 and to 3.75m parts would be appreciated.

Oh, and the FAR config that sets the SCIMITAR's airbreathing thrust to 150 results in FAR/NEAR halving the thrust to 75, making it less powerful than the Rapier. If you remove that line from the config, the Scimitar ends up at an appropriate 145

Any chance we can get a cargo Section that's simply a fuselage and dosent have any bay doors or anything? just asay a hollow section!

Waiting for 1.0 to do a complete and total redo.

Shouldn't have to do too much. Your big issues would be any wings (which I don't recall) and the engines, mostly, as well as the air intakes on the nose sections and your engine pylons.

I'm wondering about the heating effects of reentry. Might be a bit more involved, but I really don't know...

Nah, total redo means total redo. Rework the crossection as per a few pages ago, deprecate parts and add others.

What do you think of the redesign of Thunderbird 2?

Will it have an influence of any future updates?

Awesome to hear. I'd just like to say I love your mods Nertea, they are some of my must have mods. I really appreciate the work you put in.

The intake is pretty, and the engine is too. Might make it into something, but I won't be changing much to that goal.

Thanks guys, really means a lot :). This pack contains (or did) some of my best work IMO, though it may be superseded by some new things, and it is great that people like it.

No, I'd say that the Near Future series is your masterpiece.
