Adding your names to the Shuttle decals
Released on 2018-10-22
New SRB-4 thrust curves - Performance is similar on the shuttle but they should be more predictable for other types of lifters
Fixed collider issue on custom name plates
Heavy Payload Mount and Payload Bay Decoupler - Set of decouplers to mount large satellites or other payloads securely into the cargo bay. The Payload Bay Decoupler also acts as a strut. (some placeholder textures)
Shuttle Payload Technologies by @MrMeeb - A stock version of SPT has been added into Cormorant. This includes 2 Payload bay options and a full set of Skylab parts for all your science needs.
Released on 2018-03-17
Forgot to update firespitter core
Released on 2018-03-17
Added - MMU Construction Port
Fixed engine effects
many other small changes for 1.4.1

Fixed Shuttle OMS pods (broke in 1.3.0b) - Changed the RCS so they're now more stable during translation.
Fixed some description errors
Released on 2017-09-02
More small changes to support Mk3 - Block II
Most shuttle parts moved down one tier lower in the tech tree to give space for Block II parts. You can now build a full shuttle at the Heavy Aerodynamics and Heavier Rocketry levels.
Released on 2017-08-19
New art for ST-25 engine. The old engine is moving to its proper place in the future Block II add-on
Many other small changes to get ready for the Block II release
Released on 2017-05-26

Fixed Buran cockpit specular map
Released on 2017-04-24
New Parts - Found in the Aero category
Shuttle C body - The Shuttle C is an unmanned option to utilize the ET and booster stack of the Space Shuttle program. The C has no heat tiles or aerodynamic considerations as it isn't intended to return safely. Its lighter weight and disposable nature make it perfect for unusually heavy payloads and high altitude and satellite deployment missions.
Shuttle C Nosecone - A simple nosecone fit to the Mk3 profile.
Released on 2017-04-08
Fixes and Changes
MMU-E rack node fixed to prevent clipping on undock
STME ISP changed. The sea level/vac values were flipped. This adds a bit more dV on launch. Enjoy
Increased breaking torque on ET parts to help with initial physics load
Moved the CoM on Shuttle B further back
Fixed drag issues on the parachutes
Reduced MMU fuel
Other things I likely forgot about and will add if I remember
Released on 2016-12-24

Fuel values reduced on MMU
Many part categories have changed
Released on 2016-11-24
v1.2.2 No changes, just a spacedock tag update

OMS Engine name fix. Old cfg snuck in
Released on 2016-06-19
Fixed missing lift on Shuttle B
Added E-2 Pallet. A simple detachable pallet for mounting tools and other small bits to help with orbital construction. The rectangular target counts as a Docking Port Jr. for an MMU or other tug
Added Thermal Blanket texture option to Mk3 Cargo bays
Changed wing textures to MeshSwitcher. There is now a "Flip Tiles" option in the VAB/SPH.
Includes Real Plume configs by VenomousRequiem on the KSP Forums

Texture fix on Shuttle B
Released on 2016-06-15
I tried to make is as low impact as possible but this update will likely require some shuttle rebuilds. Fuel values have changed in the Body and OMS pods so make sure to grab new ones
Lots of New Parts and Mesh Switches Added.

Changes to Aero.
Turning during reentry should feel a bit more stable at higher speeds again. Seems like the 1.0.5 hotfix lifting body fix was conflicting with the parts additional wing lift causing much higher lift.
Body Flap values adjusted to bring its drag back up.
Body Flaps of existing shuttles will likely flip around and will need to be re-attached in the assembly building. Don't update if you have a shuttle in orbit!
