Entirely my pleasure!

I decided to try it out myself and here's what I've come up with so far:
; === Configuration file for General Purpose Cargo Module (GPCM) ===
ClassName = gpcm
MeshName = gpcm
Size = 24

Mass = 50e3   ; empty mass [kg]
MaxFuel = 25e3  ; max fuel mass [kg]
Isp = 5e5       ; fuel specific impulse [m/s]
MaxAttitudeThrust = 1e3 [N]
TouchdownPoints = 0 -3.7 3.5   -1.55 -3.7 -3.5   1.55 -3.7 -3.5
EnableFocus = true
CrossSections = 74 74 55
Inertia = 9 9 7
EnableXPDR = true
XPDR = 470

0 0 4.3   0 0 1   0 1 0
0 0 -4.2   0 0 -1   0 1 0
In the original scenario [Clydesdale Cargo Haul] the pods are docked to hfc-01 using the aft port, so when you enter a pod you're looking outwards. Having only a rear facing port will make it difficult to dock using RCS.

If time allows I'll have a look at adding the thruster visuals.

It looks like the RCS configuration isn't compatible with the cfg file method. Genericvessel is probably the easiest way to make them show up. The pods handle quite well using the cfg posted above, so I'll go back to drooling over the new beta.

Thank you TachyonDriver, C3PO...This vessel was still in my mind.

Here, some old topics about it with interesting comments.

I made a beginning of restoration of the Clydesdale in spacecraft3.

I wanted also try to add sounds and to compile the pods's ini with the sc3 to dll converter made by Artlav.

But if the sounds are there with ini's files, in the dll version i've not any succes to make them audible.

I ask about that in the sc3converter topic where you can take the zip joined (http://www.orbiter-forum.com/showthr...548#post509548 ).

The general caracteristics of the pods are out of my competences. Don't hesitate to modify ( if i think that things as touchdown and launch points here and for example seems to be useless ).

Good day and thank you.
