Description

With more bells and whistles.

Improvements over Kream Katcher 1: Forward docking ports (as well as rear). Both small and medium docking ports in universal docking port setup as well as docking guidance lights. More RCS fuel. Robotic pilot/pod for unkerbaled control. As many parts have been made visible as possible for easy clicking on. Comes with a more powerful booster.

Manual Orbital Ascent Procedure:
1: Take Off
2. At 50-100 m/s begin tilting down to 50° pitch, complete pitch in 10-20 seconds. Maintain pitch until first stage cut-off
3. Follow prograde attitude and separate first stage after passing 40 km altitude
4. Make a circularizing burn node at projected apogee
5. Fire second stage above 70 km altitude to circularize orbit
6. Have liquid engines finish circulation (250-350 m/s)
Launch should take less than 5 minutes and should leave >2/3 of fuel left.

v2.01: Added docking lights

v2.02: Improved landing performance while braking by adjusting rear wheel position and brake strength. Move OKTO2 pod behind Cockpit instead of in front to prevent overheating during re-entry. Activated wing roll to improve roll rate in air.

A stock rocket called Kream Katcher 2.02. Built with 53 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark2Cockpit.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.2.9.
