Modified version of gustaf's falcon 9.
I remade some parts and functions to represent the demo-1 version of the falcon 9. If anyone is able to add three windows at the frontside of the dragon, be my guest, I fucked up and could only fit two. This is as close as I could get without fucking the centre of mass up. (If you are willing to download and tweak/add shit, and it works, then please upload it to the workshop, we need more shit on here.

Changes
-Added four backup parachutes
-Tweaked 8 draco engines to produce more thrust and sustain enough fuel for orbiting/deorbiting
-Added four landing legs toggles with slider 2 and ag4
-Added solar panels on rear fins
-Remade nose cone so when you decide to lower it, it doesn't fuck with your craft and spin it around to hell
-Added more windows
-Added hatch for realism
-Remade docking port- made it bigger
-Added port and starboard indicators for realistic docking
-Resized grid fins
-Swapped out first stage engines to create realistic thrust/ enough thrust to pass the karmen line and safely return to Droo for a powered landing.
Action Groups

Action group 8+ slider 2 - (dragon) for shocks/landing legs

Action group 5 - first set of parachutes when landing dragon and don't want to spam thru stages until you reach the parachute stage

Action group 7 - Launch escape system (Dragon)

Action group 2- Landing legs first stage

Action group 0- RCS

_Sliders_

Slider 1 controls Nose cone (Don't fuck with the nose cone until you enter space, b/c it can tilt the rocket and spin it around endlessly, rcs doesnt seem to help w/ that.

Slider 2 (standalone) controls first stage grid fins for a realistic first stage landing

_ The following is from gustaf's Falcon 9 on how to land the first stage _

  1. Shut off RCS w/ ag 10 or 0
    2.slider one to 82% to close the hatch
    3.Increase throttle gently
  2. at about 15 percent fuel- throttle down and fire the stage.
    recommended to pause the game and select the booster(pilot it)
  3. trigger staging 2 times and then pres ag 2- 2 times to disable gimbal engines
    6.head prograde not retrograde the capsule is inverted
  4. upause and decend
  5. landing legs are (ag 2)
