On this chance i will present to you my latest, and most sophisticated craft i've ever made for now (Stargazer II is a bit better IMO btw🗿). Please read atleast the "Important note" part of the description just incase if there's anything that doesn't go as planned. Alright, let's jump into it!
Keep in mind everything on this page is pure fiction😉
• Craft Description 📋
This is the Stargazer I Block B, the first ever Stargazer rocket designs to be designed and constructed. This rocket family was built under Stargazer Program with the purpose to test and use a new type of propellant, named, "RP-X2" and also other experimental classified things. This rocket has 2 stages, the core stage with 2 twin booster mounted on each side and the second stage with the new experimental propellant, this new and efficient propellant gave the exhaust gas a unique purple-ish colour. Other than to experiment with RP-X2, this rocket also designed to carry an experimental "Hermes" Telescope. Not much information available about the payload, but a leaked information showed it would have a new Ion propulsion on the back of the telescope. This rocket also has an advanced automation program with a capability to launch around 20 tons of payload to the Medium Droo Orbit/MDO. Other than that, it also fitted with cough State-Of-The-Art livery all around the fuel tanks, making it even more standout than Its other counterpart.
Alright, that was pretty much a short introduction about the rocket. Onto the next one!

• The Core Stage And Friends 🚀
As i mentioned earlier, this rocket consists of the 2 main stages. On this part we will specifically describe it. First, we will introduce the core propulsion, the Verlox engine!
I. H6A Verlox Core Stage Propulsion
This is the first stage propulsion. It was a good ol' Kerolox based engine combining Kerosene and Liquid oxygen, very familiar and reliable. At the first stage, there is 5 of them. Each produce 2,543kN with a mass flow of 863 kg/s, although It has only 300s of Specific Impulse. But still, it would pack-a-punch during liftoff with a whopping 3.8 TWR. This engine is a Full Flow Stages Cycle with Delta Nozzle type and fully gimbalable. It will burn for 1,8 minutes and deplete. Because of this, the core stage has a total of 38 km/s of delta v (vacuum) combined with 2 SRBs and capable to make an orbit alone. Speaking about SRB;
II. Ifrit SRBs
If 4 of Verloxes doesn't satisfy you enough, then here comes the SRBs!
Ifrits are well-known with their reliability, simplicity, and also cheap. This one is also a standard adjusted Ifrits for this rocket. There are 2 of those on each side of the core stage. Each produce 1,773kN with a mass flow of 890kg/s. When it depletes, the program will automatically seperate the SRBs. Done with the first stage, lets move to the second stage!
III. H6N Vacuum Verlox
Here is the fun part. With the new RP-X2 Propellant being used, it would give us an interesting topics about it. This is H6N Vacuum Verlox. As the name suggests, this is a vacuum modification of the H6 Verlox engine. There is 4 of them arranged like a triangle. This modification has a longer Nozzle length and lower throat size, combining with the efficient new propellant, this beauty can last 6,9 minutes at space and also 36,3km/s of Delta V! Unfortunately, with the lower throat size, it can produce only 766kN each. Other than that, it was pretty much the same as the Verloxes.
Alright! That's all about propulsion and Stages on this rocket! Onto the next one, Autolaunch!
• Autolaunch program💾
a small screenshot of the program.
Finnaly! After some time learning vizzy, now i can make my own Autolaunch! (Remember that this vizzy is not as advanced as others have) ehem alright let's get to the point.
This program will automatically launch the rocket to around 800km of Droo orbit. It has 6 phases, that is:
The First Phase. The program will automatically engage countdown from T-10 and launch automatically.
•Gravity Turn Maneuver
•The Second Phase. After launching automatically, the program waits until the rocket reaches 5000 meters of altitude, after that it will engage the gravity turn and also a horizontal turn. 5 seconds later, the booster depletes and seperates automatically.
•First Phase Burn
This Phase starts just after launching until the Apogee reaches around 150km. After that, propulsions will shuts down until it reaches the perfect window to engage the Second Phase Burn.
•Second Phase Burn
This Phase starts when the rocket's Time To Apoapsis is less than 16,5 seconds. The program engages the propulsions until the perigee reaches around 140km. After Its done, the core stage seperates and the fairing opened.
•Third Phase Burn
5 Seconds after the fairing opened, the program engages the second stage to burn until the Apogee increased to 800km.
•Last Phase Burn
The final Phase started when the Time To Apoapsis is lower than 10 seconds. It will rise the perigee until Its height is 800km.
Alright! All done!
[II IMPORTANT NOTES BEFORE DOWNLOADING II]
I. The Program doesn't work on RSS
II. There's a slight chance of the booster and some parts to explode randomly, it wouldn't really effect the course of the flight.
III. 2034 parts aren't good for your devices.
IV. Autolaunch once activated can't be deactivated.
This is the end of the description, hope y'all have a nice day, see you later next time!
