  1. Is there an easier way to dock two large vessels like this? I align the ports, and get within 5 cm of the target docking port with mine, but alas, no connection. Docking Alignment Display is a great help, but I can't get the ports to actually accept one another, and yes, they are facing eachother. The fuel tanks and tug is about 500 tonnes, the station is about 500 tonnes, so it's as graceful and as lethargic as it gets. And please, Intercept Games, give us bigger, badder RCS thrusters. Using 256 Vernier thrusters here, I will go insane from low FPS.
  2. While messing around thinking of payloads suitable for a Nexus, I started working on a giant 70 foot (half scale) re-entry pod. That thing rapidly became a monster. A single part that's a small town with tanks and labs, and observation decks and it needed cargo space, etc etc. So, eventually my brain suggested the following ideas to me, way later than required to maintain sanity. If instead of making one giant preconfigured pod, I made a series of pod floors, that are interchangeable, then the whole thing becomes reconfigurable. Also, it solves a bunch of problems with large craft the moment there's even one floor. (assuming I'm not completely loony, I'll be starting at the smallest size) So, seeing as the 2.5m to 3.75m pod module is now mostly functional, I'm releasing this into the wild. At this first release, there's four parts. There's a crew quarters part, with a fairly early WIP interior. There's a science lab with a link to that same sketchy interior. This will change later as I furnish the interiors. There's a fairly early WIP fuel tank in two flavours, monoPropellant and dual fuel. Nothing has real fuel or realism overhaul configs yet. Please note: The fuel tanks are by no means complete. But, I'm calling the crewed pod variants "textured". BUT, it's my first attempt at a stock look. So if people have suggestions (apart from the dark-light contrast on the panel dirtiness being too strong, which I know about and am looking at fixing) please let me know. The top and bottom hatchy type image is outright stolen from Squad's large pod. Shamelessly. The rest is me messing about in layers in GIMP, mostly getting stuff on the right layers (but not always, which is why that shading is tricky to fix). Don't forget to look under the flag. :-) Anyway, pics or it didn't happen. (part album here http://imgur.com/a/c2GKt ) Download from SpaceDock http://kerbalspaceprogram.eu/mod/1017/ModularPods [ edit - I thought I'd already put this here, but I haven't.... derp ] Here's the plan, as of writing, of which parts I will be doing. I do stumble on extra things, like the combined heat shield and engine, as I go, so the plan is unlikely to survive exactly as it is to the end. I may also give up before getting to Mk16 parts, but I definitely want to get to at least a size 8 base, maybe more if I rescale my Nexus to 64% instead of 50%.

  3. Why are all SRBs small sized, I want a space shuttle dammit!
  4. CURRENT PARTICIPANTS: @KerbalKore @ @ @ PROLOGUE: BRIEF: Players must collaborate with one another in order to construct a massive colony ship with enough space and fuel to colonize another world. Each ship may be built solo or with a maximum of 3 people (see rules) The ships must be built by sharing the craft files and sub-assemblies with each other. Ships must be given a name and one of the builders then must head off into the void and get into orbit of their destination in order to complete the challenge. The Ships may be launched from Kerbin and assembled from orbit, or constructed in orbit using Extraplanetary Launchpads. The most ambitious successful mission wins. RULES: SHIP BUILDING CRITERIA: HOW POINTS ARE AWARDED: Recommended mods for the challenge (Stock is fine): This challenge is highly experimental and I would appreciate any feedback given. CURRENT SHIPS: NAME: CCS "Noah" PHOTO: TYPE: Cryo ship DEVELOPERS: @KerbalKore CREW CAPACITY: N/a DESTINATION: Nara (planet 9 of JNSQ system overhaul) MODS: restock, restock+, EPL, KSPIE, BDB, Tantares, and all Nertea's stuff. PROGRESS: Planning stage
  5. I was building a very large scale spaceplane, with custom internals inside MK3 cargo bays. The plane was more than 170 parts, probably around 200. When I first experienced the plane falling apart, it was just some clipped parts falling out of the main plane. I fixed this with a few structural connectors. I launched again and when I tried to pull up off the runway, my wings just went crazy and blew the plane up. I thought I might try again but not pull up so hard. So I reverted to launch, and my plane immediately.. well it’s kind of hard to describe. The parts were all separated from each other, but still seemed connected via invisible joints, and then separated and fell apart, some parts were sent away at extremely high velocity. After falling apart, the remains violently exploded along with the runway. I am on my phone so I do not have a screenshot. I will try and get some screenshots next time I’m on my PC.
  6. It took nearly a million dollars, but I finally brought a large five-man refueling rover to the Mun - demonstration video coming later on YouTube. * screenshot of the Big-Ass Refueling Truck after a successful landing on the Mun. Capable of refueling even the largest of Mun landers, this bad boy can mine ore anywhere and dock with anything. Sure, it may not have the science lab on board, but it's a refueling truck; it does carry some scientific instruments of its own, though. Either way, this truck is built for maximum specialized performance. Here are some numbers about the rover itself that I think you'll find very useful. Electric Charge: 21,235 Oxidizer capacity: 3,520 Liquid Fuel capacity: 2,880 Monopropellant capacity: 760 Ore capacity: 1500 Any questions/concerns/comments?
  7. This craft is fairly fragile due to its high maneuverability, large part count, and mass. So I recommend using Unbreakable joints This craft is a massive highly maneuverable jet-fighter style aircraft. This jet is extremely stable in flight, to the point where SAS is entirely unneccessary. This craft uses canards made from clipped Big-S Elevon 2’s to control the pitch and the rest of the control surfaces to control roll (besides the one on the tail fins of course). This craft also has a ridiculous amount of yaw authority, like too much. Pulling a hard yaw maneuver with this craft will immediately max out the accelerameter on the Nav-ball, so yaw at your own risk. Download link (and additional screenshots): https://kerbalx.com/Kronus_Aerospace/Kronus-DD-3-PTV Craft Mass: 87.1 tonnes Part Count: 392 Flight Characteristics -Rotation Speed: 50 m/s -Max Speed SL: 346 m/s (Just barely Supersonic) -Cruising Altitude: 9500 m -Max Speed CRZ ALT: 298 m/s -Stall Speed: 20 m/s -Max Dive Speed: 460 m/s -Sea level TWR: 1.78 (Will drop as the craft acellerates) This craft was inspired by the works of Servo, I highly recommend that you check him out. https://kerbalx.com/servo Servo has also made a large fighter aircraft inspired by this craft. It's quite awesome so check that out as well! https://kerbalx.com/servo/200-F-16 Side Note I accidentally posted this craft on the wrong section of the forums. The topic is still there unfortunately as I do not know how to delete a topic. Any help would be much appreciated.
  8. -IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ The first stage seperation destroys some of the Rhinos in the second stage, the rocket still reaches orbit however, so don’t freak out. -Basic Description This is a stock ultra heavy lifting two stage launch vehicle which can carry 10000 tons into LKO, all of this is accomplished with absolutely no autostrutting. This rocket was largely inspired by He_162’s own heavy lifting exploits, a prime example of which you can check out here https://kerbalx.com/He_162/He3000-ton-lifter . This rocket is by far the largest and most complex craft I have ever made. Made more so for looks than efficiency. Download Link: https://kerbalx.com/Kronus_Aerospace/10-Kilotons-to-LKO-no-Autostrut Craft Mass: 51299.88 tonnes Part Count: 2088 -How to Fly -This craft just barely has enough Delta-V to make orbit, so maximizing the efficiency of the launch profile is key to a successful mission. -The craft should point prograde throughout most of the early flight, as such a gravity turn must be used, an optimum gravity turn will have the craft reach 45 degrees at 500-550 m/s. -After the the first stage separation the craft will need to be pointed above prograde to prevent it from falling back to Kerbin. -the craft should run out of fuel after reaching very low orbit, orbits above 71 kilometers are not recommended.
  9. I have a larger-sized SSTO with the LY-60 and LY-35 landing gear. I noticed that after the 1.3.1 update, if the craft is landed, and on any planet, if you accelerate time... When you try to come back to 1x time, the craft leaps off the ground a bit. On Kerbin it's not too horrible; although, if linked up to a station or fuel line it can trigger explosions. On low gravity worlds, like Minmus, it's obscene! The craft vaults off the surface a good 10-20 meters, and can really mess things up! The same thing will happen if you try to load a save game, the craft will leap off the surface. So my questions are... Anyone else have this problem? ...in the event it might just be me and a few mods I have? (which are very few) Has it been a known issue for awhile and I just haven't noticed? Or was this a possible bug introduced with the 1.3.1 update?
  10. I need wheels that are a good amount larger than the largest wheel in the stock game. And no, don't say Tweakscale. I don't want to use it
  11. Is there any awesome mod I'm missing that adds large high-speed wheels? Something slightly smaller than the huge stock wheels, ideally. I have a kinda-newfound love for making big manned rovers with lots of features and self-sustainability, but I can see them reaching a point where they start to resemble train carriages rather than offroad vehicles due to the finite size of the ruggedised wheel. I could just use TweakScale, but that won't change the wheel's limited suspension travel. I wanna bounce around like the Mako from Mass Effect (most everyone hated it but I'm a fan). I'm also after a boxy cabin like the Orca Transport below. Doesn't have to be from a rover mod. The only cockpits I've thus far found that offer good ground visibility are rounded and I just don't like that look when I build big angular monstrosities that can survive kilometre drops (under Mun gravity, anyway; I wouldn't trust anything with wheels on Kerbin or Eve).
  12. Hi all. I like to big aircraft with a lot of lift, so for me the stock parts are only suitable for mk 1 fuselage vehicles. For mk 2, I used to stitch together a godawful patchwork quilt of 8 big-S delta wing pieces and use kerbal joint reinforcement and a fuel balancer to hold it all together. Really though, it would be better to just have one sufficiently large wing. I used to be a fan of b9 aerospace procedural wings but seems it's not been updated for 1.1.0. Are there any other parts packs/procedural wings that might fit the bill?
  13. http://imgur.com/a/pgHB7 I cant select some of the existing parts of my 1900+p ship in SPH!
