  2. This has happened to me every time I load a save and go to the tracking center. I had Kerbals launched from the Mun surface when I tried to rescue them. It only seems to happen when the Target is not in focus and only when controlling something else or being at KSC
  3. Have you ever been troubled by long-range long-scale or even long-pp cargo transportation? Thinking of “Damn, I wondering how to get this piece of huge dong from my garage to the local rocket launchpad “… Well won’t happen anymore with our brand new SHIPMENT SERVICE Introduce you the <Beluga Delivers> With all new develop trucks you can deliver anything you want! Without much to say, let’s hit the road!
  4. Throughout the forums, everyone shows the big, bulky, expensive and sophisticated craft with incredible range, efficiency, speed or size. but kerbin needs a domestic cargo service too, something mass-producible, able to reach remote landing sites and transport the cargo distributed across kerbin. YOUR GOAL: A Reliable, Unique, Long Range and Durable Craft to carry mid size cargo (multiple 2.5 service bays worth) Anywhere On Kerbin (or Laythe ). dlc and part mods not allowed (for fairness). kraken drives are ok. my attempt - bluebird 2 seaplane [min speed - 40m/s, cruising speed200m/s, sea or land landings] bluebird 2 file
  5. We need to be able to change the crew composition and cargo for already automated supply route missions. I'm sure other community members can critique or develop this idea further. Thank you! PS: maybe this is what that icon was for in the VAB

  7. Shuttle Payload Technologies v0.2 This is the development thread for Shuttle Payload Technologies, a mod that I'm currently working on. The main goal is to flesh out the amount of parts available for shuttle payloads. Currently in the plans are: KU Band Antenna Spacehab Weird Shuttle-Salyut module thing Build-your-own LDEF + contracts for it Spacelab Pallet experiments + contracts Probably some satellite mounts Maybe Hubble and it's servicing equipment from the following missions? Anything else people ask for that I agree with!

  8. Hi everyone, I have been playing KSP for quite a long time now, let's say that for my first Mun landing there was only one capsule available, no landing legs and trajectory was planned "start your de-orbiting burn when you see sun just touching the horizon" times. I was quite passionate about the game back then. Recently I had a relapse, and begun playing with SSTOs. And to be frank I'm clueless on the cargo placement in the cargo-bay / cargo-hold (using the larges fuselage). Some times it works, some times it does not: I want to place a satellite with a rocket propelled stage, consisting of probe body, some equipment, clamp-o-tron jr, TR-18D stack separator, one FL-T800 fuel tank and LV-909. I have made it all into one nit assembly part, and the problem begun. It just will not connect to the interior: to the clamp-o-trons, to the separators, when the part snaps in place, its rooted deep inside a fuel filled fuselage part - not even its bulkhead. I have tried re-rooting, moving (it unfortunately stayed rooted and it just was "floating" in the mid air, still being connected. As a last resort, I have tried to rebuild the entire stack in the cargo bay, but it ended up in with similar problems, the funniest one being the engine separating within the separator and leaving a gap in the satellite's placement vehicle. I have searched for some time on info pertaining to this exact problem, but unfortunately couldn't find it on forum / on Scott Manley's channel etc. I would be most grateful for any help on that matter.
  9. I finally got around to using the deployed science experiments and was frustrated with the choice of cargo containers. Squad missed an obvious size to me. The side bays of the updated Mk2 Lander Can are screaming for a cargo box. It seem like the natural place to stash the experiments, but the stock cargo box doesn't fit as nicely as I'd like, so I ended up sizing one to look built in. This is just a Module Manager patch to rescale the small cargo box and modify it's attributes for the larger size. At the same time I added attachment nodes to the sides of the Mk2 Lander Can itself to make fitting the part simpler. It should snap in place as shown in the picture Based on the new volume compared to the stock part it should hold about 11 parts, but I've left it at 9 as I think the stock cargo box in undersized for 3 experiments. The storage locker is a little larger than the side bay and does clip into the Lander Can. This is intentional to eliminate any gaps around the part and give it a built in look. Dropbox download link Download and save the config file somewhere under GameData. The only requirements are Breaking Ground DLC and Module Manager. The entirety of the patch is in the spoiler if for some reason the dropbox link goes away at some point. Consider this Public Domain. There is no code beyond the MM patch. I'm not posting it to CKAN, so don't ask. This should work until Squad renames or deletes the parts, so if you pester me about it working in later versions, I'll probably ignore you. I have little interest in user support. I'm posting this in case others find it useful.
  10. [Picture go here] Summary: Build the best vehicle to transport cargo, participate to event and cargo mission. Kerbal Express Delivery managers came up with a new strategy to adapt their fleet of vehicles to the needs of the market. KED is a fast shipping company present everywhere in the Kerbol system. Their supercomputer(my brain) use some truely absurd mathematic theorem(my random idea) to predict the future requirements(my will) of the company. They use these prediction to decide wich vehicle they gonna buy to replace to older one. Your task is to offer that match the best their needs for current round of buy. Kerbal Express Delivery want the best of the best, they want cargo-vehicles with high efficiency or transport solution. Your craft will be given a spec sheet by the reviewer of the company with his specification and their notes, then current prediction will be multiply to your spec sheet and the sum of all the resulting numbers will be the score of the craft for the current round. NEW!: To demonstrate the effeciency of your transport solution and prove his usefulness you can present a working and complete transport network. Disclaimer: english isn't my native language (french is) be tolerant for error and weird phrasing of a sentence. I do my best. Also feel free to correct me. Rules *All mods listed are optional, stock always better. -Game version= 1.5.1 -Parts(compatibility confirmed): stock + making history + airplane plus + kerbal aircraft expansion + mk2 expansion + mk3 expansion + b9 procedural wing + b9 part switch + eva handrails continued + mk.1 stockalike open cockpit + K.A.S. + ablativeairbrakes + Wetterwings + mk1 cabin hatch + Kerbal foundries(when updated) + opt reconfig(main) + Kerbonov -other: Bonvoyage + TCA + worldstabilizer + IFS(no parts) + ballast water tank (submarine only) + tweakableeverythingcontinued (no abuse) -STXContinued:(no engine: some are unbalance with stock game)(may get remove) -tweakscale(use with moderation to not get caugth by the police) -dock rotate(use with moderation to not get caugth by the national guard) -AtmosphereAutopilot, optional but please use it. AWESOME -Craft that cause my computer to lag won't be reviewed plus I'll erase them of the known univers. If it make crash my computer well... use your imagination. -Clipping= max 20% of a part volume. To use only for good reason. I don't like evil. Ex: Compressing fuel tank to get more space is bad. -2 craft max per week per person for more take one leave one -Autostrut yes but only for big thing when it's the only way to prevent your craft from exploding when spawning -no addons that affect physic of the game -No free moving cargo in/on a craft -Electric propellers and engines are allowed providing the power comes mainly from battery and/or fuel consumming devices. -No more thant 1 RTG for 25 parts allowed on atmospheric planet. Can't use RTG has main source of power for Ion engine. -You can't use any unfair bug or exploit as a propulsion method. (Wheel Hover bug is ok) -NO NUCLEAR engine in use below 50 km on kerbin -neistridlar can only use Neist Airliner Parts -squad staff and moderator can only use upside down command pod -S.A.S. is disabled on pair day Cargo definition: A cargo(it's a payload, a marchandise, a commodity) can be a lot of thing from fuel and ore to a whole rocket, it's also kerbals. Cargo has a mass and a size and. If a cargo is, for example, a ressource that doesn't have a physic existence in the game, then the cargo have to be in a container. You can submit container. Craft Your craft can be manned or not, if not make sure to have enough power and antenna range. Your craft can be anything that can contribute to a transport logistic. Ground: for wheeled vehicle on kerbin apply the rule for electric engine(extra point for minimal use of solar panel) and no mining. Liquid: you'll need dock to load and unload cargo, we don't supply them. Atmosphere: range above 5000 Km is kinda useless. Space: Temporarly space only vehicle won't be allow for the challenge. Transport Network WIP Submission Guidelines (your craft should): be fully reusable, durable and safe (for reusability, any detachable component need to be reattachable. Ex: in a missile delivery system, missile has to be reloadable+give the price for one) be able to; move cargo from a point to an other (vehicle)/store cargo (container) be the most efficient/effective in any way* (speed, crew capacity, range, fuel consumption and maintenance cost are relative to cargo capacity) have the least amount of part per cargo capacity be easy to use be the most flexible (on cargo configuration) stay stable and manoeuvrable whatever cargo configuration is use (vehicle) be as cheap as possible have a good range of operation (for your kind of vehicle) extra points for style and originality. *Example: If, for the same price, you can buy a big aircraft or an other two time smaller and two time faster, then, they are both equivalent. Complete judging criteria(reviewer secret checklist): Submission rules: Name your company and your craft Describe his cargo capacity A Picture Main spec(that apply to your craft) ex: speed, range, cost, part, cruise altitude, deltaV,... any relevant information like safety stuff pilot manual(how to use it) actions groups and commands needs to be listed in the in game craft description link to your craft file using kerbalx (or steam but steam workshop is bad) do some blabla say wich mod you are using but most importantly if you are using or not atmosphereautopilot What should look like a submission: For reviewer Score, event, mission, round, prediction and badge Event (new post every time) Two things will happen through time; When I decide to, a new round will start(ending the previous one) with new prediction. The second thing will be mission and event. -Prediction affect the score of your craft by redefining how much point worth(multiplication) each stats. You get a badge while one of your craft is on top of the leaderboard when round end. -Event can be a lot of thing but mostly . You may get a badge by accomplishing them on time. You need to post screenshot as proof of success. -Cargo delivery mission: see below. You'll be able to see your score when the google doc(or excel or other) will be completed. Awesome super secret special badge can also be obtain by BlaBlaBlaBlaBlaBlaBlaBlaBla.......... THEY ARE MINE! Find them by yourself! Mission list Car delivery WIP Rocket plane Goal: Make the most efficient rocket cargo plane. Rules: rocket engine only, max 10km altitude Score: 100*range(km)*cargo capcity(mass t)/cost Russian doll Goal: Make a vehicle carrying a vehicle, carrying a vehicle, carrying[...] a kerbal. Rules: Max mass=100t Score: range(km)*number of step/1000 Badge Link -Google sheets need time to do that. This challenge have been simplified to make sure everyone can have fun while doing it. Below are the original rules that you can still follow to get extra point, mention it in your submission as hardcore mode. You should know that they are not complete and may never be, there is a lot of missing elements that only exist in my mind.
  11. I found a new way (at least to me) to keep large things rigid without mods or craft file editing. Meet Brutis This dude is fing massive (slightly larger than the sph) and honestly flies really good. Only problem is if you take it above 250m/s it rips itself apart, have fun with that. It has the ability to save the crew, land and carry cargo what more do you need? It can carry about 750 tons and still take off, 800 if you strap rockets to the side and pray. It also can climb nearly straight up under full power, and carries enough fuel to fly for nearly 6 hours when cruising. If you need to get something from one place to another this is the plane to do it. Keys are 1 - lights 2 - ladder 3 - thrust reverser 4 - shut down all but cruising engines 5 - open back door 6 - open back hanger 7 - open front door 8 - open front hangar steam link with more pictures https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1565539532 and here is the craft file https://drive.google.com/open?id=12-asM-do7sFjT0I6UhvIL8Hsgjrt0g8a
  12. Hi everyone, I have the OPT Spaceplane mode. Whenever I design a spaceplane or any cargo plane with a cargo ramp, it spawns like 500 feet above the runway and starts falling. If I replace the cargo ramp module with a normal tail, the craft spawns correctly on the runway. Anybody seen that and knows a fix? Regards, Chris
  13. So someone recently challenged me to make a replica of the Quinjet from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is a cargo VTOL aircraft with a similar purpose to Boeing's V-22 Osprey. I wanted to make my replica unique, so I decided to make some stock electric/jet powered propellors for the VTOL function. But I've never really delved into the world of stock propellers before. So I was wondering if any of you had any tips on building them, or which design would be most appropriate (are high TWR propellors even possible)? Preferably they need to be relatively low profile, although I acknowledge that I may have to lose some aesthetics for functionality. The design for the aircraft will probably use MK3 parts although I could switch to MK2 for lower mass. Any help/criticism is welcome!
  14. KESTREL AEROSPACE KC-100 DESIGN NOTES The KC-100, designated 'Rhino' for its bulk, is a heavy-weight, medium-range airlifter with a maximum takeoff weight of 90 tonnes. It's capable of relatively short takeoffs with lighter payloads, and can also be landed in a short distance if its thrust reversers and flaps are employed. The Rhino was created primarily with rough-field landings in mind, and can thus deliver payloads to remote locations that would otherwise be inaccessible. SPECIFICATIONS: Length: 33.3m Wingspan: 35m Height: 8.2m Empty Weight: 32.92 tonnes Full Weight(1162LF): 38.74 tonnes excl. payload Stall Speed: 40m/s Maximum Static Thrust: 480KN (4x Wheesley powerplants) Maximum Return Range, with maximum payload: 650km Maximum Range of No Return, with maximum payload: 1300km OPERATION MANUAL: AG 1 - Switch engines on/off AG 2 - Toggle Thrust Reversers AG 3 - Toggle flaps AG 5 - Lower/Raise Cargo Ramp KERBALX LINK: https://kerbalx.com/Kestrel/Kestrel-Aerospace-KC-100-Rhino Please enjoy!
  15. I built this Andromeda class SSTO the other week, the intended use being space station components, which are bulky but light. I tested it with a 2.5m Xenon powered ship as the heaviest plausible payload (18t), because if your lifter is NERV powered, why would you go back down to chemical ISP for the deep space part? But the gold standard for a mk3 SSTO is an orange tank (36T) , so it had to be done... A design like this lives or dies by it's lift/drag ratio, namely you must stay as close to prograde as possible to minimise drag from the cargo bay. Aerodynamically, it's designed to do that when empty, and i've added trim flaps on action groups 1-3 to nudge the angle of attack a few degrees higher or lower so you can adjust the flight path. However, the positioning of the cargo can upset this. The orange tank caused it's AoA in Neutral trim to shift to almost 2 degrees nose down , due to the cargo being slightly too far forward. I was able to work around this by operating with nose up trim most of the flight and tweaking the deployment angle of the trim flap, as i'm sure you could if you had the luxury of an analog stick ! In future though, i'd recommend test flying with the payload before shooting for orbit, and see where the natural AoA goes to so you can see if the cargo needs to move at all. Or just get a fancy-ass analog joystick ! https://kerbalx.com/AeroGav/Andromeda Is it the smallest thing to ever lift an orange tank?
  16. Hello, I have a dumb question but I'm playing in the ps4 enhanced edition and looking to make a nice space plane. My problem is can't I find the Mk3 Cargo Bay on the tech tree. I looked it up but cant find it. Can someone verify that it is or is not there? I feel like I'm losing my mind.
  17. It can be tricky, when trying to attach something to the nodes inside a cargo bay, to get everything to line up properly, so it attaches to the node rather than the side of the cargo bay. When playing on PC you can hit a key that ensures the part you are adding will only attach to an open node. Is there a similar feature on the console (specifically PS4 for me) version?
  18. Greetings, Skunk Works lab was wondering if anyone remembers a Mod that allowed you to build a rover, and PACK it into a container to be un packed later? We are integrating Cargo bays, and wondering about this mod. I think it was available back in 1.0 or 1.2 Thanks
  19. I've been fooling around again with SXT, and built the 'AirWhale 350' (The 350 part is for how many m/s it takes to takeoff). It can store several trucks, rovers, crates, and even light planes (fitting two LF-1 Bears in folding wing mode). Top speed of roughly 400m/s, takes about 30 seconds to stop after applying brakes, and needs the full length of the runway to take off. https://photos.app.goo.gl/u01ThqGKQiWwyikg2 - The AirWhale under construction https://photos.app.goo.gl/zJwN94ZLr0z6524j2 - Moved to the runway https://photos.app.goo.gl/iLPeETvMYRdOHAfD2 - Engines start https://photos.app.goo.gl/qTblpyxTK8eDYvDt1 - Takeoff! https://photos.app.goo.gl/8roaeU6Hzu67oTZC2 - Mirvy Kerman is worried about flying a slow, heavy aircraft. https://photos.app.goo.gl/KPDjeK3jidWXEqTg2 - Flying to the island https://photos.app.goo.gl/Eb33f3fCxIFSfJZd2 - After a lot of time, landed at the Ice Caps. https://photos.app.goo.gl/8K0zCqxhQDIhkUcn1 - The research vehicle is ready to be deployed https://photos.app.goo.gl/MiKeQBRGycp1XOjk1 - Safely driven down the ramp, ready to survey the area. And that's it. I'm planning to airdrop some crew facilities, but just need to figure out how to do it.
  20. The Gyrfalcon is a heavy lifter designed to move Kerbals and cargo into LKO. Some experience is recommended when flying these rockets. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1iYfbFZ7IE8UJC_vOUXRl70oDiGrKiM9c/view
  21. My original plan was to create a cargo SSTO that could carry 4 large Mk2 bays worth of cargo, land at Mün, and return to Kerbin. This turned out to be a much bigger challenge than I though it would be! As the plane got bigger, it needed more engines, more fuel, then it couldn't land anymore, so needed more engines, more fuel, etc. So I tried going simpler with only 2 large Mk2 bays. Still took quite a bit of trial and error, but I finally did it. As a craft, it's a delicate balance of size, mass, fuel, cargo, and power. 76 tons, 3.5k - 4k ∆v after reaching LKO. How did I do?
  22. Pytheas Class Explorer This is a fully function SSTO capable of a vertical take off and landing, and weighs a total of 558.445 tons. This is by far my largest successful SSTO, let alone VTOL Album Download
  23. So things are moving along nicely with the new model. I opened another thread for the new one, you can find it HERE. New update: THe original HLV was giving me all sorts of CoM trouble. I am working on a fix. In the meantime I made a new model. Available for download on Spacedock. The engines are not yet finished, but the RK-Z-146 Solo engine from contares fits perfectly, you might want to adjust the thrust in the CFG to 300Kn. CoM is spot on and horizontal landing is stable. Set you mav engines to 60% and you're on your way or use TCA. The cargo requires KIS. Update: For those of you waiting for this to release. Unfortunately I have to work for a living......or so I'm told:) However as of Friday I am on vacation so I will have time to complete the project. It will be an ongoing project as I want to build or adapt a launcher to go with it. I will release the lander first though. What I can say is that you will need TCA to get this thing into orbit as the COM is slightly offset thus TCA and a multi engine First and second stage will be needed to keep your rocket flying with the correct end toward space. I have managed to build the Aerosehell and it is stable during Duna reentry, I also added RCS thrusters to the aeroshell, MAV second stage and MAV. The lander itself is very stable during decent and landing. The project has not been forgotten or turned to vaporware. I hope to release before X-mas. So my first try at a mod for KSP. Here is my take on the HLV (Horizontal Landing Vehicle) designed by NASA back in the 90's. (I think it had another name:)) What is this? An all in one solution for trips to Duna and beyond, carrying both cargo and an integrated MAV. No more sending the MAV and your cargo or rover in seperate missions. At the moment the parts are not textured (still working on that), I will try and get that finished ASAP. I have included some basic renders of the complete design. The parts: Landing frame - with integrated landing gear and rcs tanks. Bow tanks and engines - Bow tanks and engine cluster MAV - MAV main engine cluster, second stage and ascent pod (integrated ladder and exit platform) Mav engine cluster is 3,5m so any 3,5m pod can be used. RCS thrusters - Powerfull RCS thrusters to keep this beast straight during landing. Hexacargo - Hexcargo containers for all your base equipment and other needs. MAV decoupler - Decoupler arm for the MAV (decouples MAV from landing frame) Coming soon: Rover ramp - Ramp for existing rover configurations Single cargo pods with integrated engine clusters. Any suggestions are welcome. Aaaand, the aeroshell.... Ok, so a few screenshots of this beast in action. (before you ask....YES! I do have mechjeb installed, my flying skills are dubious to say the least:)) And some texturing. I am trying to find the time to finish the project. So things are going kinda slow:(
  24. Eruptor SSTO: Trainer, Cargo, Passengers. The Eruptor SSTO is something I threw together in 5 minutes, and I expected it to make an amusing explosion. Instead, this was my best SSTO I've ever made. (That isn't saying much...) Stats: Mass-195 tons Total passengers-32 Possible tonnage to LKO- 13 tons Cost: 333,910 Recovery funds: 321,655 This craft is only rocket powered.
