About the pack by dtobi

The goal was to make the parts to build shuttles by only using this pack, stock parts and maybe other parts like B9 aerodynamic parts.

The engines are can combined with bi-, tri-, and quad-couplers (strut the stronger X3 engine). A NASA shuttle-like appearance can be achieved with the tricoupler.

The two weaker engines allow orbital maneuvers because the shuttle main engines will be useless after dropping the main tank moves the center of mass into the vessel. The OMS drives are useless in atmosphere.

The fuel tanks come in four sizes, allowing various asymmetric shuttle-alike rockets.

Fuel flow breakers balance tank center of mass (CoM) which must carefully: your tank's weight and vertical position, along with your engines' and boosters' power, determine your CoM's alignment with your center of thrust. The engines' large gimballing stabilizes craft.

The main engines fly crooked with the CoM right above them and at full throttle overheat.

Parts

  • eleven (11) engine parts
  • X0, X2 and X3 Space Shuttle Engines
  • X4 Linear Aerospike Engine
  • Orbital Maneuvering System (OMS) Engine
  • Double - Orbital Maneuvering System (OMS) Engine
  • Shuttle Shoulders attachment point for OMS
  • Two big 2.5m engines. One can rotate (check action groups and context menu)
  • sixteen (16) tank parts
  • Four tank shapes in four different sizes (16 parts in total)
  • six (6) other parts
  • Two fuel controllers for controlling fuel lines' flow
  • Radial mount for shuttle engines

Example Craft

The example craft are supposed to give you an idea how to setup the engines, fuel controllers, tracks, etc.

Installation Directions [^1]

Use CurseForge/OverWolf App (currently does not install dependencies)

CurseForge/OverWolf App

I take no part, nor am I interested in maintaining the CKAN mod metadata for my mods. CKAN is a great mod for those that can't use zip tools. If you are having issues please let the CKAN people know and refer to the CKAN thread. My support of CKAN extends as far as me checking the checkbox in Spacedock when I upload. Beware, CKAN can really mess up though it tries very, very, very hard not to.
