Onion, Pea, and Pomegranate turn Black on rentry
This could possibly be feedback of "the black looks bad", but I think there is possibly a broken re-entry charring system malfunctioning here.
After certain conditions are met during re-entry, the 3 spherical capsules from Making History will turn a strange vantablack in one instant. It's very jarring that your craft will flip to this color in a split second, whereas the heatshields have a much better fade-in to their charring effect. The black texture has got to be a bug, I just can't see it as being intentional as its so black, its like vantablack. See screenshot.
- Take any of the spherical capsules and give it some kind of deorbit propulsion. Remove ablator.
- Cheat to orbit around Kerbin
- Watch the capsule flip its color to black at a given point.
The solution depends on the intentions of the developer. I feel like this is supposed to be a gradually charring effect similar to the heatshields. In that case the fade is broken and it goes immediately to 100% charred vantablack. Perhaps it should only be applying 26% (or some percent <100) of that black layer over the regular grey texture to achieve a charring look.
