Recommended Posts

He surely deserves all my credits, I'm also looking for the RLA stockalike mod, this guy is amazing, you both do a great job with your mods ! :) I'm ready to test your freshly released energia launchers ! :D

It's out! Full changelog in the OP but the important bits are as follows:

  • Removed the 5m Upper Stage engine (Whirlwind x7) as it was redundant
  • Added 2.5m slimline decoupler
  • Rebalanced all parts for 1.0.4 aero
  • Updated every single little thing to 1.0.4 standards
  • Added all descriptions
  • Converted most textures to DDS

Now go! Make better Energia-Burans than me!

A craft file would be really appreciated Other than that......Well done old sport!!

I am having issues on the very loooong 2.5m fuel tank.

The very first tank I place overheats on the launch pad and explodes.

However, any other tanks that are placed with it using symmetry or copy and paste does not explode until I actually get going really fast.

Many thanks for all the kind words! :)

Hello!

This is likely to the heating changes just introduced, I'll take a look. :)

What is strange is that I rebuilt it, stuck my Buran-alike shuttle on it (and had Buran blow up in orbit due to a clipping issue-oops), and no heating issues were encountered.

I am wondering if part clipping may have affected the temperature.

Pls make a buran orbital engine to fit Mk-3 Shuttle parts

Check my dev thread for QOS. It's in the plans. You may see that later this month, at least that's the goal. I have... Ideas. :)

Can't even tell you how eagerly I've been waiting for this update :)

ABlauncher support will be in the next version of my soviet space program mod.

Nice to hear :)

Great many thanks!

I think I have to agree. If you could make engines for the shuttle that fit the mk3 form factor and radial engine pods this would be be just about a perfect pack. It already is damn near perfect. But unless Squad makes proper shuttle parts, packs like this are essential and you guys deserve a huge applause. Also I am terrible at making shuttles so a craft file would be immensely helpful.

Thanks for the kind words all! :D

Believe me when I say you guys and gals don't want that craft file, it certainly looks like Buran riding on the back of Energia, but it's not very functional. Just a craft for testing Energia and for pretty screenshots! Energia itself is also very easy to build, the one pictured is only around 32 parts, with 12 of them being sepratrons. Hardest thing is flying it, but it has so much extra fuel (because orbiting Kerbin is so easy in 1.0.3+ aero) you can keep a lot pumped forward in the nose for stability purposes.

I am having issues on the very loooong 2.5m fuel tank.

The very first tank I place overheats on the launch pad and explodes.

However, any other tanks that are placed with it using symmetry or copy and paste does not explode until I actually get going really fast.

There's a few funky things going on in places with the stock heat system, I'd wager it's something to do with that rather than anything inherent in the part itself. I'll keep an eye out for it though, thanks.

Could I ask for a individual RD-0120? it's for... a thing.... two, actually....

The 'mainsail' works well as an 0120

For the thing I had in mind it works but doesn't fit that well...

btw, is this in the future plans? I know DECQ is working in it, but it won't be stockalike

You wouldn't happen to be thinking about possibly creating a 3.75m probe core & docking ports would you? I plan on building a really big mothership for an OPM grand tour, and 2.5m is just not enough!
