  1. I'm exited for the changes to planets and UX that should make deep space exploration less painful and more interesting!
  2. Would there be any major adverse effects to uninstalling the plugins for this mod? It's been nice but I feel like at this point in my save it may have become too much of a driver of lag
  3. There is some more stuff in The Lunar Exploration Scrapbook by Robert Godwin, I wouldn't know where to go for something more comprehensive and technical short of asking the author about his sources...
  4. Excellent update! Very much worth the wait for all that beauty!
  5. I suspect we're only seeing this because the parts have already been modeled, I'd be more hopeful of seeing the revamped APAS-75
  6. I can't speak with any certainty, but I don't believe autopilot technology had advanced enough to allow for autonomous landings, and even with such capabilities, the Astronaut corp put immense pressure on NASA not to include it, as they did not want NASA's flagship spacecraft not to need pilots.
  7. Does that include the Soyuz-style base or just the one for the ASTP docking module?
  8. What is the status of this addition? I would certainly love to play around with those beautiful ports!
  9. When I try to use the Venera lander probe, as I enter into Eve's atmosphere the heat shield survives but the probe inside is destroyed. How do I prevent this?
  10. Doy! I saw that picture and was so caught up with the S-IVB adapter that I totally missed the LES tower! Glad to see it's making it in!
  11. Friggin BadS!!!! I'd love to see your take on a full IPP moonbase mission if you're up to it, though obviously not until after a well-deserved break! Could you also add a proper launch escape tower for it as well? I believe that was part of the plans for Big BasicallyCleanSheetInGemini'sClothing
  12. I wish I could super-like this, it's so friggin awesome to see the IPP architecture in its full glory (RDM, you should have taken notes!)
  13. Ooooh, those VA and H-II parts are very pretty! I love this mod and I've been using it a lot in my latest save, one question, would you be able to add the white color for the Almaz parts back in? It seems to have vanished in the 1.12 update for Tantares.
  14. I see, makes sense, although I have Intercolour installed as well and I'm not seeing those colors either. I guess I'll have to take it up with Zarbon?
  15. Finally updating my save to 1.12, what happened to the white and yellow color options for the Almaz and Progress parts?
  16. I think they just used the TTL shuttle design as an iconic thing that viewers would recognize, rather than because it made sense. Maybe some concept artist was showing off pictures of the DC-3 anf some non-technical person said "but that doesn't look like the shuttle!"
  17. The problem is that none of the space stuff in Season 2 makes any sense whatsoever. They should have just gone with IPP.
  18. The Block V did fly with a mission module for Freedom expeditions, unless I'm missing something and it had a noticeably different MM?
  19. They actually use CADS, an international docking system developed between NASA, ESA, and NASDA in the timeline for docking between Freedom Modules and Apollo. The old Apollo Probe-and-Drogue is still used on the actual capsule because it would require so many changes to alter the docking system (Especially since CADS has a wider diameter) that you'd basically have to redesign the entire capsule.
