This place called "home".
There seems to be a bug on the second stage: the nozzle gimbal animation doesn't work. The exhaust gimbals and the rocket rotates, but not the nozzles stand still...
Besides that, I really love the debris after staging, it reminds me of snow and is really beautiful!

Thanks for your feedback!
Just investigated this, and it does appear to be a problem with the manually
launched version - I will try and fix this tomorrow after I've had some sleep.

Hi BigMac, excellent stuff, haven't stopped flying since I downloaded! Good model and textures.
Just for fun I Velcroed(is there such a word?) it onto my Blue Streak add-on:

Just hacked the Agena .cfg file to get it started, that might explain the scaling issue? I'll look into that.

Kickstarted my Aussie adventures again, might get Blue Streak F3 finished yet!

Glad you like it Notebook.
Having checked my meshes, it does seem that they are a little large, which would explain the scaling issue.
On an unrelated note, the problem with the second stage animations not working is now fixed.

Oh, lol, maybe next release, you should include "Launch Vehicle" in the title. I thought this was a skin for the Arrow Freighter :lol:

BigMac. do you have any plans to make Black Arrow's launch site and surface tiles. If not I'd like to give it a go.

I had a look awhile ago, and I think its in this area.

-30.943711° 136.520894°

Woomera site 5 was a reference to the location.

Don't know if you have seen this:
Three parter from Ch4, not bad, but they keep hopping between Black Knight and Black Arrow, most confusing.
Big bang at start of part 3:

I don't know the first thing about making surface tiles, and was procrastinating too much to get around to making the launch site, so feel free to give it a try - it would certainly make a nice addition.

Found those videos a few days ago - good little documentary, and some interesting footage.

This is exceptionally dated now, but I found that downloading the R-7 packages seemed to work for some reason. I did notice a stage 2 in there. I think that somehow fixes it.
