  1. Old thread merged with the BO and Orion thread. This is the new one. Useful links: r/SpaceX Wiki Long list of acronyms
  2. Starship Expansion Project Starship Expansion Project (SEP) is a mod being developed by me, Kari, and our amazing team. Our project aims to bring our intepretation of the Starship vehicle by SpaceX into Kerbal Space Program. While a lot of the design choices are based on the actual vehicle sitting on Boca Chica, creative freedom is used to expand our mod even further. Special thanks to @damonvv for allowing us to adapt tundra's plugin to ourselves, @SofieBrinkfor her hard work adapting the code and overall improvement of the mod, @IsaQuestfor the raptor model and textures, @Janus92 for the amazing IVA models, @EritoKaiofor indirectly helping me improve myself over the last few years and everyone on our discord server for their immense support to our mod, I could not have done without you Screenshots Dependencies Module Manager Waterfall (0.8.1 or higher) B9 Part Switch Extremely Important but not required mods Textures Unlimited (for shiny parts!) Tundra Exploration (For more engine modes on SH) KJR Next or KJR Continued (Avoid wobbly joints) Starship Launch Expansion Recommended Mods Flight Manager for Reusable Stages Community Resource Pack Trajectories Modular Launch Pads HullCameraVDS & NeptuneCamera (custom cameras on ship and booster) IVA Dependencies Near Future Props Reviva Free IVA Raster Prop Monitor ASET Props Download SEP is officially found at Spacedock, GitHub and CKAN. Any other form of download is not official and should not be trusted FAQ 1. Where is *? R: If you have not found a feature you like, please check our roadmap to see if it's not already planned, otherwise feel free to ask nicely and we'll happily look into it 2. Why there's only 2 engine modes on the booster? R: When we where authorized to use part of Tundra's plugin, we agreed to leave the engine switch on Tundra's mod, as it was made mainly for falcon, if you want an extra mode, install Tundra and it will be on your game 3. What are those names? R: I renamed the parts to match The Expanse (my favorite show) names, if you're not familiar or want to have real names, there is an option for it on the extras folder when you download it 4. WHERE IS THE FROST I SAW IN THE PICTURES? R: It's currently in development and will be integrated into SEP, right now it's a separate mod that adds a part that attaches to a node on the ship and booster, you can find it on our discord server under the #sep-addons channel on a pinned comment along with other mods made by our community 5. My plumes are different R: Not a question, but could be pro plumes made by Fossil, it's currenly in development and you can find a version of it on our discord server under the #sep-addons channel on a pinned comment Licensing Configs are distributed under CC-NC-SA-4.0 License.

  5. Download from SpaceDock or Github Tired of throwing away your rocket every time you launch? Look no further! This collection of parts will help you build reusable rockets, SpaceX-style. @EmbersArc created this wonderful mod but due to busy times had a hard time maintaining this mod. I am honored to continue this legacy in its current state and making sure to keep this mod we all know and love up-to-date! Includes: Falcon 9 Landing Legs in three different sizes. New Glenn Landing Legs in two different sizes. ITS Landing Legs in two different sizes. New Shepard Landing Legs in two different sizes. Grid Fins for control and additional drag on descent. Deployable Wings to fly back stages. SuperDraco Engines to land your capsules and provide in-flight abort capability Fuel Tank with ladder extension Heat Shield with integrated shroud, decoupler and deployable landing gear Docking Port compatible with stock docking ports Recommended mods: Flight Manager for Reusable Stages Trajectories Compatible with: TweakScale RealPlume Ferram Aerospace Research Installation: Move the "KerbalReusabilityExpansion" folder to KerbalSpaceProgram/GameData/ and you're good to go. With CKAN CLI: ckan.exe install SpaceXLegs License: MIT License How to: Build a reusable first stage Special thanks to: @EmbersArc for making this wonderful mod! Without it I think we would still be in an age were reusability on rockets doesn't exists! @nli2work for making the legs work initially for 1.1. The setup has since been redone but it would have been much harder without that help. @DerpyFirework for contributing the "DeployableAeroSurfaces" plug-in for the grid fins. It is in the public domain and the source code can be found here. Changelog: Good luck landing stages!
  6. Might as well plant a topic now https://spacenews.com/companies-offer-proposals-for-apophis-asteroid-missions/
  7. I'll just put this here instead of picking an existing topic because crewed Mars is its own topic really
  8. I have done a lot of trial and error to make this rocket work, but now I have finally created the second stage for the full starship rocket. I have tested this in an orbital flight, and it works flawlessly, it is very light on the computer (what I mean is that it gives the normal KSP2 FPS) and it can also land perfectly! (Have only tried a water landing). This has enough Dv to get all the way to Duna! This rocket was referenced from Starship SN10. THIS WAS TESTED WITH JOINT_RIGIDITY: 1500000.0 Craft files: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/19pS-SCzZqfchSv5mXkuQy2EhPk4Wxjap?usp=share_link Front View: Bottom View: Gallery Link: https://imgur.com/gallery/4ZcbU3W Update 1: Added RCS Thrusters for easier mobility. Update 2: Added the Super Heavy boosters making this a full starship. (16 boosters because 33 broke the game's physics) Update 3: Added grid fins.
  9. Could someone please make a SLC-40 Crew Tower mod? Would also be nice if it was built in 5 dif parts (1 of them being the crew arm lol) Renders by TheSpaceEngineer

  14. Decided to make a couple of ssrt LKO reusable booster designs as they can look pretty sleek with the new cargobays. This is one of my intermediate designs, able to lift about ~25t's in to LKO with an efficient orbit burn along with a well executed suicide burn. Tho once the cargobay bugs are fixed, i imagine it should be capable of lifting more. Ive also considered adding dedicated vacuum engines, but i felt like it kinda ruined the ''sleek'' design. Specs: Mass: 246 / 48t Parts: 33 Engines: 4 vectors LKO Lift capacity: 25t Craft file: https://www.mediafire.com/file/sl5gwxuexidzoj5/ssrt_v3_various_takeoff.json/file

  16. Hello all! Will make it quick: * Programmer by trade (but completely unrelated to spaceflight) * Absolutely fascinated by the tvc and flaps control of starship * But absolutely no idea how this could be achieved in code * But spaceflight noob * But ksp noob Took the last year to gradually learn how to control starship using my own plugin written in C#. The video above shows my current progress. Ascent, flop, descent, flip work roughly. Landing left. Full code can be found here: https://github.com/xgleich1/starship Would like to describe my yourney from the beginning and in detail once this post is approved and if you are interested. Could contain hints on how the real flight software potentially could look like. Example: How can you make sure that you can yaw/roll/pitch at the same time with the flaps? Finally and most importantly: Big thanks to ksp and the whole ksp community, without you I could have never done this.

  18. This adds a SpaceX Droneship to land your rockets on! It includes a static for Kerbal Konstructs and a VAB part. This is a continuation of Space X Barge Lander, which only had a KK static. I added the VAB part. In the future, I hope to add more parts related to SpaceX's Fleet, such as tugs. It's not perfect yet, but I'm working on it. I want to thank @ColdJ for his continued help with this, my first part mod. Dependencies: KerbalKonstructs (if you want the static) ModuleManager Download from: SpaceDock CKAN Github License: MIT
  19. KSP is a space exploration game that allows players to relive their childhood dreams of flying through the stars. It's a sandbox game in which players create and manage spacecrafts from scratch. You can also download add-on packs that let you explore other parts of the solar system and even nearby star systems. Realism mods allow you to experience spaceflight in a way that's much more true to reality than computer games have been in the past. Realism mods add attributes to KSP that make it more like real space missions. Some common mods include real fuel and crew limits, accurate values for spacecrafts' mass, weight, and thrust; realistic orbital periods; realistic rendezvous and landing procedures; realistic weather variations; realistic interstellar travel capabilities; and realistic galactic map rendering. Implementing these mods makes your space missions much more authentic and challenging. Space exploration is an ongoing process that pushes humans closer to reaching the limit of our knowledge. For example, getting a human on the moon was a huge accomplishment, but now we're trying to get humans off of Earth. To do this, we need to develop spacecrafts that can withstand extreme conditions in outer space - including zero gravity, high temperatures and low air pressure. These spacecrafts need to travel great distances and return with samples from other planets. The crews who do these great deeds are very dedicated and often willing to risk their lives to achieve their goals. To experience this type of intense gameplay, you'll need several realism mods installed. Some players use KSP as a tool for exploring other career paths in engineering. For example, one user developed a modded mission where players controlled a rover instead of a spacecraft. This let players experience land-based exploration without any risk of injury or death. Other popular mods let players control ocean vessels like ships or submarines. You can also control aircrafts through suborbital or orbital flights with modded tutorials. There are many ways to add variety to your space missions- just look around KSP for inspiration! Overall space exploration is one of mankind's biggest accomplishments thus far in our history. Games like KSP help us relive childhood dreams of flying through the stars or exploring other parts of our galaxy. Thanks to mods, now anyone can enjoy realistic experiences like these without sacrificing playtime or immersion! Can I please have links to realistic mods please. thank you. your work is deeply appreciated!!!

  21. Starman's Tesla Roadster On February 6th, 2018 this very Tesla Roadster along with an assortment of other things began their billion year journey around the Sun. Fortunately, the Kerbals discovered this amazing piece of history and brought it back to their homeworld of Kerbin. Now you can control the launch, and send Starman to whichever planet or moon you desire. Features: Detailed model of Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster and Starman based off of the real car. Craft file for the stand with the car pre-mounted. (Fixed as of 2.1.1) Don't Panic sign. This mod was designed purely for entertainment and has no real functionality yet. Changes in latest update v2.1.1: The craft a file has been updated and added back to the mod. Changes in latest update v2.1: Removed rearview mirror and windshield wiper. They are not on the real car. Fixed the side reflector colors. They now appear orange and red like they are supposed to. Slightly adjusted the tires. About 2% larger and fit nicer in the wheel well. Completely new Starman model and other visual improvements are on the way in a future update.

  22. Not sure if anyone has asked this before, but while viewing images taken of the ISS and Tiangong Space Station via ground based telescopes, I have this interesting question. Would imaging a starship currently in orbit around earth via a ground based telescope be possible? And if so, how bright of a magnitude and how large might it possibly look in an image? I'm also asking this because it seems that the first orbital flight test will probably end up happening before the end of the year and I'm sure there would be some people out there possibly interested in imaging it from orbit during the flight if they can and it's visible. You can view the images I was talking about at the beginning of this post by clicking on the links above. Hoping someone has a good answer to my question!
