Currently there is a way to make a nose cone into a approximation of a half/sphere, but it looks like a pointed dome and is not a true sphere, so it would be nice to be able to have the ability to select "pointed" and "domed" in the nose cone settings, allowing for a more spherical shape. This would also be welcome for other shapes such as the blocks and struts.

Suggestion Planned

    @malumuteanaerospace I guess, I'm not the best at wording that kind of stuff lol

    @Exo200 you mean not too sharp

    @malumuteanaerospace i know, but it is truly sharp and not partially round and sharp
    example

    @Exo200 there is a sharp dome option in the nose cone

    something like a "sharp domed" option resembling the space shuttle and titan iie solid boosters would also be nice to see implemented

    I wish it comes with custom shapes so we can have less parts.

    I got you a truly spherical fuel tanks. And can adjust the weights to specifics with fuels. Check out my perfect sphere collections. I have made a sphere using 1⁰ degree rotations unfortunately involving 600 plus parts. However it's smoother than a babies but when under a microscope!

    If the Devs add this, add a half sphere as well. Like simpleplanes.

    Can we have a parabolic nose cone?

    Other Nosecones

    @AndrewGarrison I hope this helps to visualize what I mean
    .
    1, 2 and 5 are now possible to do, but 3 and 4 or any intermediate curve is not possible (3 is a rounded nosecone and 4 an ellipsoid)

    @pedro16797 I'm sorry, but I don't follow. Can you elaborate a little more?

    @AndrewGarrison a very useful approach would be an option to select the angle of approach of both faces so you can make the mesh be a ellipsoid with 90 in the tip and 0 in the base or a spike with 90 in the tip and 0 in the base, this would make it possible to make very complex shapes with the addition of just 1 slider in the part shape tool (1 in each face)

    I agree with this suggestion, more fuel tanks and structural shapes are needed! :)

    @swope Yes I hope for this as well, that way we could make both spheres or capped cylinders as you said.

    I want hemispheres so I can make capped cylinders.

    I was meaning to suggest this, but I kept forgetting. Thank you:D
