  1. Is there a download link for the CEV? I forgot to download it when it was up.
  2. Any news on this? I tried making a methalox version of the karakuni but couldn't figure out how to make waterfall plumes
  3. Chapter 3: Orbital Operations On September 26, 2041, Frontier debuted their new orbital class rocket, Rhea Ia. This mission will only carry a mass simulator since this is only a test flight. Rhea will launch a 600 kg payload into a roughly 90x90 km orbit. On the morning of September 26, 2041, all-weather parameters are met, and Rhea is ready to launch. Before launch the vehicle performs a short gimbal test of the canards After all checks were done, mission control called the green light on the launch. Mission control then releases the hold and the countdown progresses. A few minutes later, mission control announced T minus ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three... Main engine start, two, one... Liftoff! We have a liftoff of Rhea Ia! All Engines are looking good and we are proceeding to roll program. Rhea has hit Max Q. MECO Confirmed. Awaiting stage separation Stage separation confirmed, coasting to apogee for orbital insertion. 5 minutes into the flight, Rhea starts its upper-stage engine for orbital insertion. SECO confirmed! Back on the ground, everyone is cheering as Rhea successfully reaches orbit. Overall it is an impressive mission for carrying a full payload into orbit on the first attempt. Back on the ground, the engineers are preparing to roll out the second Rhea for a rideshare mission Next Mission: SLC-1 (Space Launch Carrier 1)
  4. Chapter 3 Teaser: Orbital Operations After many Suborbital Launches Frontier Aerospace will face a new challenge. . . Send an orbital-class rocket. Their new launch vehicle is named after Rhea, the mother of the Olympian Gods. Rhea Ia features a unique design. For primary control, it features canards to guide it. Secondly, it uses methane for the first stage and kerolox for the second. For the launcher's size methane is a unique propellant choice. Its first flight is scheduled for September 26, 2041
  5. I wish there were a feature where you can offset wings like this:
  6. Chapter 2: New Technologies Earth Date: June 14, 2039 Wallops LA-3 Today at Wallops Virginia, the second launch of Panther 01. It carries a special payload, the Hydra Micro. The Hydra Micro is an experimental micro-scale crew vehicle. It will fly suborbital and return to Earth with a parachute. Gene Kerman: All systems go proceeding to launch. Gene Kerman: Hold. The new launch time is 5 minutes. 5 Minutes later the count continues. 10... 5... 1... Liftoff! Booster Sep Max Q reached. Fairing and payload separation At apoapsis Recovery Capsule Entry At that moment everything went wrong. The parachute fails to deploy. Mission control accepts failure, but they know they can recover from this. Payload Crash. After the incident, Panther 01 had been grounded. Even though the rocket was not the problem, The FAA needed to investigate the issue. Hydra Micro had to be redesigned and tested. For now, Frontier has to launch their smaller sounding rockets that can't match Panther's performance.
  7. (REPOST FROM FRONTIER AEROSPACE) Panther 01 Specs: Payload Mass: 300 Kg Mass: 1.5 Tons Fuselage Diameter: .625m (MK0) Height: 6.9m Stage 1 Thrust: 35.7 KN Stage 2 Thrust: 28.1 Kn https://kerbalx.com/Falcon_Aerospace/Panther-Recovery-Type-1-LC
  8. Chapter 1 Season 1: The Very First Launch Earth Date: March 1, 2039 Wallops Flight Facility LA-3 This day marks the first-ever suborbital launch of the new company, Frontier Aerospace. The team has done many launches in the past, but not at this scale. It was their first launch exiting the Karman line. After many delays, and scrubs it all went down today. T-3:00: Pre-launch checks are looking good, Mission control is proceeding to launch. Gene Kerman: All systems are looking green, proceeding to countdown. 10. 9. 8. 7. 6. 5. 4. 3. 2. 1... Liftoff! The first launch of the panther lifts off successfully. The booster stage separates from the sustainer stage, the sustainer stage then lifts the payload suborbital. Max Q reached Sustainer Cutoff Payload fairing deploy, and payload deploy. The payload in suborbital space. Earth entry. Main parachute deploy Parachute fully deployed. Splashdown! The mission was a huge success and brought new information to Frontier, and NASA.
  9. Pre Chapter 1: The First Rocket Earth date: June 5, 2038. A new rocket was just announced: The Panther 01. It is a sounding rocket that can take 300 kilograms into a suborbital trajectory. Specs: Payload Mass: 300 Kg Mass: 1.5 Tons Fuselage Diameter: .625m (MK0) Height: 6.9m Stage 1 Thrust: 35.7 KN Stage 2 Thrust: 28.1 Kn
  10. Frontier Aerospace Background: In his high school years, Matthew Kerman founded an aerospace club. He and his team completed many projects with model rockets and high-power rockets. In his senior year, the team successfully launched a space shot mission. He broke a record with the first high school to send a rocket into space. Matthew then got many scholarships and finished college with a master's degree in Aerospace. He then got hired by NASA to work on the Space Launch System. Years later, he proposed a plan to replace the SLS with a clean sheet HLLV. The proposal was called the Jupiter MHLV (Modular Heavy Lift Vehicle). It is composed of many companies like SpaceX, ULA, Boeing, and most importantly... Frontier Aerospace. Matthew left NASA to form Frontier. The team is composed of former SpaceX, ULA, Boeing, and Blue Origin Employees, and even some of his friends from high school. Their goal is to help NASA explore, build transportation for the public, and explore planets like Sarnus or even Plock. Current date: September 2041 Previous launch: Rhea Ia Mass Simulator Next Launch: Rhea Ia: Space Launch Carrier 1 Before I started this mission report, I had many Frontier saves (Frontier was called "Nano Hex" before switching). I have always conceptualized replacements for the SLS ever since I had an interest in space exploration. Thanks and inspiration to: @Blufor878 @GoldForest for Dreaming Big @Jay The Amazing Toaster for Kānāwai: Ares to Mars @Poodmund and @CaptRobau for making OPM And all the modders that contributed to making them
  11. Update: I will temporarily discontinue this and I will move on to a new thread (Edit): This thread will be permanently discontinued, and I will start a similar thread
  12. I have a question. There is already a Tweakscale patch in the Niestair MM_Patches file. What is this, and what do I do with this. Edit: nvm, this was not an issue also, thanks for the install instructions, It works now
  13. What is this? Edit: added logs: Ksp.log https://drive.google.com/file/d/1n2S7k4F6w3_1saq0Y2YtBvBZLvY1qyeb/view?usp=drive_link MMpatch.log: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1kpd8amSQjmsep101BS9defe4I_jk6jyp/view?usp=drive_link ModuleManager.log: https://drive.google.com/file/d/16U6RlMu8KmvOsMxTzsZUmIrvJCljGn9A/view?usp=drive_link
  14. I downloaded the update, but it won't show up on the parts
  15. Tweakscale doesn't show up on neist air parts. I downloaded the Configs, but they still won't show.
  16. If you return to your alternate history, will you add this to the timeline, or is it too late
