So here we go! Breathable areas, running around, unpacking cargo!
Just like back in the good old days, but with stunning gfx!
Big shout out to Abdullah Radwan for making this possible!


HDU-DSH_NASASuitZ2
Add-On for Orbiter 2016 (v.160828)

Habitat Demonstration Unit – Deep Space Habitat

Even in space, there’s no place like home

Specifications
Non-Flight Shell: Eight composite fiberglass, resin-infused sections from a single mold, supported by large, C-shaped steel ribs
Structure: Cylindrical with a vertically-oriented axis, on top of a 13.8-foot square cradle
Volume: 5,230.1 cubic feet (148.1 cubic meters) in two levels
Size: 16.4 feet (5 meters) inner diameter; 10.8 feet (3.3 meters) high, total (6.6 feet barrel height with two 2.1-foot end domes on top and bottom)
Features: Inflatable loft, two docking ports, one hygiene module and one dust mitigation module/airlock.

Regardless of what surface they’re exploring, at the end of a long day collecting geological samples or performing scientific experiments, astronauts need a base of operations to return to.

If I criticize yours too hard, you can criticize mine too hard as well...not sure if I want that. :)

Don't worry, I'm pretty cuddly, atleast personna (most of the time!). I try to be only constructive with my critic, and generaly try to give people space.
P.S. you must be in Karneval hochburg right! Hope your having fun!

Nonono, that is not the case. I live in the North, we grant carnival refugees asylum here. :cool:


Only the Braunschweig/Brunswick guys down here celebrate a big carnival, but they are pretty exotic anyway. Their carnival procession (called "Schoduvel") was yesterday. :ROFLMAO:

By the way I made a dummy breathable object that you can put anywhere and make any base breathable. Just copy (+rename) the .cfg and adjust the area inside.

I made a basic interior- so you don't have to stand in the dark when your taking a breather!

Made some Mars rocks:

And night lighting

Got to the canyon, but didn't make it back without running out of air! Now where did I park the LER?

UPDATE in first post.

Does anyone know why Base object Beacon Array doesn't work on Mars? Works fine on Earth.

Looking at your picture with night lights I'd like to ask if your light is visible through objects just like here?
