Well, After more than two months in the making, it's finally here.

To commemorate the successful launch of Artemis 1, here is my completely revamped and upgraded version of the SLS Block 1! Some of the new features it has compared to the old version are a marginally increased size, a much, much better extending RL-10 (this was very difficult to get working), and many more details!

Info:

The Space Launch System (SLS) is a powerful rocket developed by NASA that is designed to launch payloads into space, including crewed missions to the Moon, Mars, and beyond. The SLS is an expendable rocket, which means that it is used once and then discarded after a single launch.

The SLS consists of a core stage, which is powered by four RS-25 engines, and two solid rocket boosters. The core stage is the main part of the rocket, and it contains the fuel and other systems needed to power the rocket into space. The solid rocket boosters provide additional thrust at liftoff and are jettisoned from the rocket once their fuel is depleted. The SLS is capable of carrying a payload of up to 130 metric tons to low Earth orbit, making it one of the most powerful rockets in operation today.

The SLS has undergone several design changes and upgrades since its development began in the 2010s, and it is currently being developed as part of NASA's Artemis program, which aims to return humans to the Moon in the coming decades. The first test flight of the SLS happened in November of 2022, and it is expected to play a key role in future crewed missions to deep space destinations.

    @Wenhop Actually I'm not sure. I think you just have to re-attach the part below the command disk to the command disk and it fixes itself just fine.

    @Wenhop my pre 1.0 crafts work fine. I have my very first rocket and I have tested it a few days ago and it works fine.

    @Wenhop Should say it has collisions disabled, but if you want to make one you have to disable collisions or the nozzle disappers

    Question Please: for the Extendable Nozzle, you used a Transparent Engine right?
