I can't figure out how to attach the Orion to this delta 4 heavy mod? Delta IV Launch Vehicles 3.0
The custom payload manager seems to only allow one mesh, one config. I got it to work with an older Orion mod that had an all-in-one config and mesh and attached it with the default Delta IV fairings but this capsule has lots of separate meshes and configs. Is there a way to make an all-in-one config or mesh?
It's not a problem if not, I'm just wondering if it's possible because I really like to use that Delta IV since I use it a lot for satellite missions.
... I for one am glad to see you back in the add-on business (not that you were ever really gone, but you know what I mean).
Ok, I will provide an all-in-one mesh for launch.
Will take a day to do so.

Uploaded a new version (03) on the front page of this thread. Contains all-in-one launch meshes & configs. Scenario included for Tom Harringtons Delta IV Launch Vehicles 3.0.
Black CM tiles for now. Fairings adapted. Minor tweaks with RCS exhausts.
Yeah I have also encountered this problem,too bad it's not fixable.Well it looks like on the Tom Harringtons Delta IV Launch Vehicles 3.0 version the payload was too heavy for the rocket to send it into orbit....
Otherwise, I can't wait for sending this tough spacecraft around the Moon and beyond in Orbiter!
Illustrations and animations of Orion show it with a white exterior, courtesy of thermal paint. But the Orion flying on EFT-1 will instead look black. Henning explained that, given the short duration of the flight, that paint isn’t needed. “It’s just the raw black tile,” he said.
According to the EFT-1 presskit, the lift-off mass of the Orion elements (SM/CM/LAS) is 46,000 lbm or 20 700 kg. So that is 8,377.56 lbm (3 800 kg) too much.I was getting used to the black Orion. Made her look like a sportscar
Regarding Tom Harringtons Delta IV: There is line in the scenario file:
If you can't make to orbit try reducing this value.
