Val and Robart climb into the cockpit of the Endurance, while Kerlorf squeezes into the small crew compartment at the back of the spaceplane!
“Everybody secure? Disconnecting docking clamps!”-Val
Endurance slowly drifts away from Laythe Spaceport!
“Systems nominal – what a view!”-Robart
The Spaceport grows smaller and smaller, set against the impressive sight of the giant green planet of Jool!
Endurance is scouting a site for a future colony on Laythe! One promising (and scenic) site is Crater Island!
“Readings show we’re on the right course – cloud cover’s still too thick for visual confirmation!”-Val
Endurance finally drops below the clouds, and Crater Island becomes visible!
“We’re lined up with a good flat landing spot – deploying chute! Horizontal engines are switched off – activating VTOL pods!”-Val
The spaceplane’s parachute deploys, it’s air brakes lift, and the VTOL pod doors open – providing the final bit of thrust needed for a safe landing!
Endurance touches down! Robart is the first out!
“Incredible! You’d almost forget this was another world until you look up!”-Robart
Kerlorf plants the Kerbal States flag, and the crew sets up a camera to take the traditional “landing portrait!” The Endeavor crew will be busy for the next few days, setting up science equipment and experiments on the surface, as well as checking out the landing site!
“Ok – we have about 20 days to investigate this site – let’s get working!”-Val

İ have an question:
Which mods adds the DSV cargo bay ?
İ want them in my own
Hi! I think you’re looking for:
Near Future Technologies, Near Future Launch Vehicles
Check the gallery here: https://imgur.io/a/q58Dj0s
I hope that helps! Enjoy KSP and thanks for visiting 🙂
Nope i have this mod already but i can’t get the DSV class cargo bay 😕
I have an big boi ship like your Endeavor but its thicker and has less d∆ than yours but it has more cargo than yours (And yeah im not an american or english and i cant talk english so good)
Yea the DSVs are a bit ridiculous! Post a pic of your ship! I’m always looking for ideas 🙂 thanks for visiting !!
There are two DSVs
1. Challenger file:///D:/SteamLibrary/steamapps/common/Kerbal%20Space%20Program/Screenshots/screenshot3.png
2. Endeavor file:///D:/SteamLibrary/steamapps/common/Kerbal%20Space%20Program/Screenshots/screenshot1.png
And there’s the file (I can’t find the Endeavor’s file):
This both ships use all of your mods plus TAC life support and Tweakscale
And ship uses the TAC life and Tweakscale (Plus all of your mods )
Plus I published 2 same comments lol
hey, where do i get tweak scale? the one on curseforge isnt working for me.
Hi! Maybe try https://spacedock.info/mod/127/TweakScale
? Fyi I don’t use this mod anymore as, for my install, it was unstable.
Do you think that you could maybe head to the new Mun Arch? You probably have your hands full with Munar Exploration, but I do know you have anomaly contracts.
@we need more Sarnus missions
I agree! Getting there is a real trick though… DSV Horizon is on a return trajectory from Sarnus now, and in 70 days a launch window opens for another trip! Sarnus Station is still on the way there – but it arrives in a year. Unlike NASA I don’t have exact plans for everything, lol – but I’m sure I’ll find somewhere to orbit it in the Sarnus system! Thanks for visting 🙂
