Some additional bug fixes and enhancements since the last beta version

  • Added SimpleAirways to stock craft.
  • Added shroud curvature and shroud/nozzle overlap settings to jet engines.
  • Added Deflection Angle and Deflection Speed to control surface part properties.
  • Added jet engine thrust reversal.

  • Fixed a bug where the designer would not calculate a part's CoM correctly if the part had overridden it's local CoM.

  • Fixed a bug where the docking missions would fail to recognize, in some circumstances, that the player had successfully docked.
  • Fixed a bug where rocket engines and jet engines would work when underwater. Fixed a bug where rocket engines where misreporting their fuel usage when not at 100% throttle.
  • Fixed a bug where the volume of a fuel tank was not affected by its corner radiuses.

    @DioTheCreative Have you logged a bug report with that craft?

    @weebabyseamus - I made a video about flying big jets in SR2:

    @swope also the fuel thing is definitely on the radar for fixes.

    @swope it was never really meant to be "the" shuttle carrier, just a nod to one, hence the ambiguous name. The command chip stuff will hopefully be a thing of the past for jets in future updates, along with a few other things already on this version. As soon as the updates roll out, this bird will get the parts accordingly. For now, it is more or less a showcase to what you can make for now, and meant to be a base to build upon and fine tune to your liking. Its faaaaaaaaar from perfect, and as simple as I can let it be.

    Something I haven't fixed on SimpleAirways, yet. It seems about 90% of the fuel is not connected to the engines. When I fly about a 100km out and back, I see my "current stage" fuel gets down to 15%, but my "all stages" fuel is still 90%.
    Landing a 747 Classic, I'd like to be at a mass more like 180,000 kg, not 306,000 kg!

    Getting an odd bug where after going 300 m/s my aircraft will gain a huge acceleration buff taking it past 900 m/s, and after that it is impossible for it to slow down below 300 m/s. It is an odd craft but still very odd that it has the behavior.

    @weebabyseamus - please consider some changes I made to SimpleAirways to make it more like Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA):

    From the FAQ: "When can we expect the mobile (iOS/Android) release?"
    "We will begin development in early 2019. At this point, it is too early to give a release date estimate. Once we’ve started to peel the onion back we’ll have a better grasp on how long it will take to get the mobile version blasting off."
    So there's your answer.

    @iOpportunity The official answer has been stated by Andrew in the past and that answer is some time in mid-late 2019.

    Anyone else having a problem where the SR2 sometimes doesn't start?

    I get an all-white window, not responding.

    Reverse thrust is epic! It sounds much cooler than afterburners now though. Can you make the after burners sound cooler?

    Hmm, good update, I started making a new craft just now and the jet engines seem to be ignoring the intakes I have on it. Stuck at 0%.

    Edit: Oh wait it works now. odd.

    Shouldn't rockets work underwater? There are rocket-torpedoes in real life and Sea Dragon was supposed to be launched submerged. @AndrewGarrison
