  1. Note: See spoilers below for release notes, videos, Github download and issues links Additional Note: In regards to KSP v1.2.9, the BDAc team has released a version of BDAc v0.2.0.0 for the pre-release ... to download, use the BDAc releases link provided in the spoiler below and scroll down the page a little and you will see the download link Hi all I am posting this thread due to the loss of threads in the Addon section of the forum and, as it has been discussed among our members, that there needs to be a thread for the BDAc family of mods that we maintain The BDAc family of mods were all created by @BahamutoD, and in his absence, we have taken it upon ourselves to keep the explosions flowing For anything related to BDAc or mods in the BDAc family, I refer you to the Github link for Papa Joe's Soup (Slightly Over Used Parts) where there is listed download links for the mods in question ... If you have questions or concerns, feel free to post here and the team will do our best to assist you I also refer you to our in game KSPedia where you will find a wealth of information on the operation of BDAc If you think you have come across a gremlin or a bug with BDAc or any of the mods we maintain, feel free to post here, however we ask that you also take a look at the issues list on Github to see if your problem has been addressed. We use the built in Github issues tracker to keep record of bugs, enhancements and feature requests as it is difficult to keep track of bug reports and all the great ideas that the community have come up with on the forum (things can get buried and lost under newer posts) Please note that versions prior to BDAc v0.2.0.0 are no longer supported ... This means that only the most recent version of BDAc is supported at this time Also, to correctly install BDAc, first download the latest release (not the source download) and then extract the BDArmory folder contained within the zip file and place it into your KSP/Gamedata folder ... Do not, I repeat, do not place the Gamedata folder contained within the BDAc zip into your Gamedata folder as this will cause umpteen million conflicts to arise as the BahaTurret pickle looks for textures, configs and whatnot in specific places In regards to CKAN ... It is our policy not to provide support for CKAN as we have no control over the process beyond listing when deploying to SpaceDock. If you are having issues with CKAN we request that you take it up with CKAN And in regards to support, KSP.log please (as well as BDAc version, KSP version and modlist) ... I also refer you to the following thread where it describes in detail everything else that is required for us to help you: Best Regards, The BDAc Team @Papa_Joe @jrodriguez @SpannerMonkey(smce) @gomker @TheDog @DoctorDavinci BD Armory wiki: Papa Joes Soup Github link: BDAc Release Notes: BDAc Family Mod links: Videos:

  5. When I attach weapons and weapon managers, they don't work, at all. But it is up to date, according to AVC, so whats causing the problem?
  6. A sci-fi addon for BD Armory, it adds a bunch of weapons inspired by Star Wars. Updated to 1.2.2 by using BDArmory Continued. Also features a "Power" system as ammunition, which is quite simplistic. The whole thing is really, but it's nice to have anyway! Basically, use the battery pack called Power System for all your needs. There are currently three unique models, contributed by SpannerMonkey and Wraith977! Download over at Spacedock. You will need BDArmory Continued installed. Feel free to contact me with both bugs and requests/suggestions/ideas. I will probably add more weapons with time, but currently there are: Ion Cannon: Based on the howitzer, it is a very powerful weapon on a direct hit, but otherwise does minimal damage. X-1 Light Laser: A small automatic laser gun. M50 Dragon Turret: Tank Turret that focuses on explosive radius but is not as strong as normal tank cannons. It fires slightly faster too. Scout Laser Cannon: Automatic relatively light laser cannon. Laser Turret: Pictured above, it's inspired by TIE Fighter guns. A light and small weapon. Turbolaser: Heavy turbolaser, for all your capital point-defence needs. It now acts as a proper flak gun with explosive shots. X-8: Automatic laser cannon. Deadly. X-10: Inline lighter laser cannon, for fighter use. Based on the X-Wing, featuring model by SpannerMonkey. Old Republic Defence Turret: Very fast firing experimental turret, provided by Wraith977. Dorsal Turbolaser Turret: Heavier turret, great for general use on bases and various starships. Also made by Wraith977. License: CC ShareAlike 2.0 With all credit due to BahamutoD, and his awesome mod(s). As well as the team working on BDArmory continued now of course. And SpannerMonkey and Wraith977 for providing some really cool weaponry!
  7. Hereby I proudly present you my first mod - a Point Defence Cannon as seen on MCRN Tachi space corvette in The Expanse TV series. Point defence cannon is essentially a space CIWS. So far I have only fixed model that is just raised on its mount when activated. But I plan to add the one that will retract into special bay eventually, just like the ones in the series. The nicest feature is the inbuilt tracking-only radar with RPM camera built in. If you have Raster Prop Monitor installed then you'll be able to watch your target on MFD screen as the radar tracks it. Download from Spacedock: Suggestions are welcome
  8. I love this game so much but I found one thing missing. I was wondering if there was a mod for 1.2.2 that has a structural plate that you can shift and morph like procedural wings. If not, if anyone would be kind enough to provice a step-by-step to modifying or adding the part myself. If not, pointing to something to help me do that, would be very nice. Thank you all in advance.
  9. Presenting to you, an addon for BDArmory: Some more Pictures: I think this is really useful for everyone who enjoys building warships. I will take requests, but I make no promises, that this mod stays up to date. But this time I created project files, so in the case I can't develop it any longer, It should be no problem for other modders tocontinue it, when I give them the files.

  11. Though I love that KSP is always in development, and the team has my many thanks and kudos, I love-hate incoming new versions as they always destroy my mod build... this time I am at a loss as to what happened. Maybe it's relevant for the new release so i think I best post it here (and who knows, maybe someone knows what happened). 99% of what I have is CKAN-ned. So I foolishly saw a new BDArmory and installed it. Silly me for not checking first: it was a pre-release (bda) for the pre-release (ksp) so it was not intended to work with the current version. So obviously my game crashed. No big deal so far. I removed it with CKAN, removed the old BDarmory with CKAN, reinstalled current BDa via CKAN... later on I reistalled it manually from elsewhere (github)... But no joy. This is what happened. The currently compatible BDa installed properly. I know it did, since I have old previously saved craft with BDa parts and they loaded just fine. I can even fly them. But the BDA tab (and corresponding parts) disapeared from the VAB parts menu. And from every other tab in the menu. Basically its like I have BDa, since the parts placed in previously saved craft exist allright, but I cannot access BDa's parts anymore for new craft. Also, althoug the craft did load, the BDa parts were kinda 'dead', meaning, I couldn't interact with them by clicking on them, or any other way. Weird! To quote the ending line from the movie "the sand pebbles": what the hell happened!

  13. All, Found this Ejection seat mod about a week ago. I wanted to get this out there because it has given me some good hours of fun being hit by Bahamuto's missiles. Special thanks: linuxgurugamer for saving my Kerbals with the awesome ejection seat mod!!! As well as Mallikas for the excellent Cockpit mods! And... Hats off to BahamutoD for the destruction! -Kroltz
  14. SERIES III Air Superiority Challenge - King of the Hill 4v4 AI Duels (WW1 Theme) How Long Will You Claim Air Superiority? Inigma's YouTube Channel Test your design against the current King of the Hill, then Submit your entry to the ASC Hangar and post a link in this thread to enter! ASC Match Hosts: @inigma | @jrodriguez | @g00bd0g | @Hobbes Novakoff | @Draconiator | @colmo Check out these other ASC Divisions: ASC-IV (No Restrictions) Coming July! | ASC-A (PvE Arena Ladder) Coming Soon! King of the Hill: TorchedForever - K1A Volante Number of Wins: 8 Registered belligerents: The Optimist - 2 Woodpecker, 1 Desert Moth Type 3, 1 Fighter Beefalo - DEFEATED!

Draconiator - Kerbwith Alpaca - DEFEATED! AlexTheHu - ASC Tri - DEFEATED! qzgy - PointyStickFish Mk 11 - DEFEATED! It began with a challenge... inigma claimed King of the the Hill on April 3, 2016 with a pair of Fighter Papa-1s over KSC and KSC Islands. Not soon after, his son challenged him with a pair of dp class fighters of his own. The Air Superiority Challenge was born! ASC Series Playlist: The Air Superiority Challenge is a rotating challenge series from a catalog of currently adopted rule sets: No Restrictions, Modern Style, WWI Style, and other ideas we come up with by consensus. Only one series is active at at time, but each series will be posted in rotation. Most Series last a month. Some longer or shorter depending on interest, time, and new software releases. What never changes is the general format: two AI teams dueling for control of a piece of territory, most commonly KSC Island, using stock and BDArmory parts only (with a little Kerbal Aircraft Expansion thrown in here or there for spite). How long your team will claim the ASC KOTH title depends on how many times your designs survive challenges to your reign. Air Superiority Challenge III Match Rules: All matches are hosted in KSP 1.1.2 with the latest BDArmory, Kerbal Aircraft Expansion, and Aviator Arsenal mod versions. To ease the load of the match hosts, and to increase confidence in your submission, you may only submit an entry that you've tested against the current King of the Hill. Your post must state you've done so. Challenges to the King of the Hill will be processed on a first-come first-served basis by whichever match host volunteer happens to be available to do so (you can join the ASC Host team, PM inigma to do so). Challenges are best of 3 rounds of 4v4 take off from near KSC runway in opposite directions, BDArmory Tournament Mode: 4km re-engagement over KSC. To win a round or claim title to King of the Hill, one of your surviving craft must: have a Kerbal in your craft have at least one engine remaining (out of fuel ok) have at least one weapon attached (empty ok) still appear on the VS list in the BDA GUI (your weapons module hasn't been shot off) if there are no survivors with all the above, the round will be considered a draw, and a new round required. In case of a draw or bugged round, a round will be added to the match. 3 draws in a row will result in the match going to the current King of the Hill. Any craft that has disengaged is considered lost. All seats on a craft will be filled. Two seater? Two Kerbals. Yes, Kerbals weigh a few. All matches will be made available on the official YouTube playlist embedded above. Air Superiority Challenge III Entry Rules: 4 aircraft (must look like a plane) required per team (can be same or different crafts), all must be manned with at least one Kerbal, all Kerbals in command seats, no closed cockpits. All craft must be built in KSP 1.1.2 50 part limit maximum per craft. 2 fixed guns maximum, no turrets All stock parts permitted except the following prohibited stock parts: all stock engines all Mk3 sized parts Big S wing Big S elevon SAS modules reaction wheel modules No mod parts permitted except the following: BDArmory (required for AI Flight Computer, and AI Weapons Manager. The .50 caliber Browning machine gun is the only weapon from this mod permitted in this series.) Aviator Arsenal (any fixed non-turreted weapon from this mod is permitted) - ASC KOTH.cfg file (to fix issue with Aviator Arsenal's antenna part, goes anywhere in your GameData folder) Kerbal Aircraft Expansion (required for liquid fueled propeller engines only, no other parts permitted) No restrictions on AI, or Weapons Manager settings. Entries must contain download link for the craft file(s) to the ASC Hangar and posted to this thread (static links prevent me having to update the OP with your new versions). Only AI and Weapons Manager changes are permitted to the ASC champion between matches to fine-tune their AI response to upcoming challengers. No other part changes are permitted to the ASC champion. All challengers are permitted to make any changes they wish to their craft up to and just before their match vs the current ASC champion. If you are next in line, please notify the match host so your changes are committed to the match. If the match host missed your note, it's not their fault. Just re-submit your craft. Only one active entry per person at a time (to prevent dueling yourself). Match hosts will only engage staging once to turn on your engines at 0 throttle up to 3 minutes before match start, so be sure to tie in any components you want activated to the staging action group (competition start engages staging automatically), and be sure to include enough electricity to keep them active while stationary and throttled to 0. You may not trigger the Weapons Manager, or AI, or any of their settings, via the staging or SAS action groups. This prematurely enables fighting, and crafts that do will be disqualified. Hosting Details: Rounds will be processed depending on our time and general availability (hopefully semi-daily). With that in mind, let's see how far we can take this! You are welcome to host your own matches and publish the results in this thread if any of the ASC match hosts fail to respond within 7 days to the next belligerent challenge. If you decide to host an ASC match, you must have a dedicated KSP 1.1.2 64 bit install that only has the following mods installed: Aviator Arsenal ASC KOTH.cfg file (Fixes issue with Aviator Aresnal antenna. Goes anywhere in your GameData folder) BahamutoD's BDArmory BahamutoD's BDAVesselSwitcher BahamutoD's Vessel Mover BahamutoD's DestructionEffects HyperEdit iPeer's InFlightFlagSwitcher Kerbal Aircraft Expansion Malah's QuickBrake Take Command Texture Replacer Visual mods are permitted as long as they don't seriously degrade your match processing. Match hosts must post all rounds to YouTube channel with KSP: ASC III KOTH belligerent vs king (Round # of # or Full Match) BDArmory AI Dogfight Battle and update this thread with a link. Shall we get started? Who will be the first to challenge the ASC King of the Hill?

  15. Been inactive for a while, and need to take a break from counter-strike due to a major slump, so i decided to fire up ksp for some craft building. Making it mostly with pwing, as i have done with my other crafts. Will update with more pics as i build. For now, the further down you scroll, the more progress will be seen. I'm going to update the OP with recent pics a bit later Can't get kerbpaint to work properly, some pwing elements can be colored, some can't, and some only get updated with new colours when coloring another part (mostly when i add paint to a stock piece), if anyone can help me with this it would be greatly appreciated. Some additional angles and further progress: ------------------------------------------------------ OLD ------------------------------------------------------------ Decided the ejector seats (which actually work, just not right now because they get blocked by the dash, will fix though) didn't really look the part, so i modified them and replaced the existing ones. I do realise the upper seat part is slightly too long, but im going to focus on finishing the craft and deal with it later on, should be a pretty simple fix. Not really pleased with the way the turret section turned out, will smoothen and fix later on. It looks alot more 'blocky' than it actually is, the panels blend into each other in the screenshot. Some vent detail
  16. Hey guys, I've only just started messing around with BD Armory and it looks really cool. The only thing is, all the videos I can find online are about combat in the atmosphere, and I'm more interested in exoatmospheric fights. I'm thinking classic space battles meet real physics kind of thing, so no need for realistic scenarios or special space weapons. While experimenting, I sent up a couple craft to test out short range missile combat in orbit. They were easily able to lock on with radar at about 15 km, but when I fired AIM-120s at the first target, they all missed, no matter what the range I fired at. I didn't even bother to try the sidewinders, as I figured they'd only home on a ship making a burn or otherwise heating up. So does anyone have any experience with BD Armory in space? Why are the missiles missing? What weapons DO work in space, and are should I be using a different type of missile than air-to-air for space-to-space purposes? Also, I had a theory about the 120s. I thought they used reaction torque and engine gimballing, but if they are only using control surfaces, that would explain why they are unable to guide properly. Is this right?
  17. Hasn't been updated to 1.2.x for quite a while, well actually not at all. Anyone thinking about a revival?
  18. I've redownloaded and gone through the installation several times but whenever I enter the game I can't find the weapons anywhere. For the installation I copied the BDArmory folder which was inside the downloaded Gamedata folder, and pasted it into my KSP installation Gamedata. I've read the installation instructions several times and I am 99% sure that I am doing it correctly. I've looked at other threads but they all seem to be due to an incorrect installation. Is that what could be happening here, or did I break something else? Also if I've left any critical information out please let me know, I'm new to these forums. I also have installed: B9 Aerospace (and others that come with it) Tweakscale JSI Smokescreen Firespitter I'm running on the 64x version
  19. So... I have BDArmory but I noticed it never gets updated anymore. Was it abandoned? Will anyone pick it up? Any answer is helpful.
  20. Hey all, first off, I apologize if I've posted this in the wrong forum. It seemed like the best place to me. I am playing around with BD Armory in career mode with the 5dim pack. I've built a nice little low tech floating weapons platform with a Mk1 Pod, an RT-10 solid booster, Mk16 chute + four Mk2R radials, and landing legs. At this point in the tech tree, I only have the chain gun unlocked, so that's all I can use for the first training mission, which consists of a bunch of unarmed, unmoving targets to the north of the runway. Since I can barely fly planes, I figured I'd just put guns on a slowly falling platform and shoot down at the targets. So I put four chain guns facing downward on the sides of the RT-10, as well as eight boxes of 30mm rounds. My contraption flies up to about 5,000m, then floats back down at around 6m/s (which reduces to more like 4m/s once I use up all the ammo). After it reaches full chute deployment (5k), I arm the weapons and the mouse becomes that nice litte targeting thing. I also see four littler targeting things that try to follow the mouse, which I assume are the aimpoints for the guns. Everything works perfectly! Except that I can't hit a damn thing. I'm visually impaired, but I have enough vision that I can easily put the targeting circle on the selected target (it has a little box around it). I will let myself drift down to 2.5km and open fire for two minutes or so, but nothing goes boom. BTW, the recoil of the guns slows my decent rate quite a bit and, to a much smaller extent, pushes me away from the target. This drift is the only thing I can think of that must be throwing off the aim enough to prevent any hits. I just don't understand how I can pour two minutes worth of 30mm explosive rounds at an unarmored target and not even scratch it. Am I just too far away? I can't seem to find a range number for the chain gun, or for many BD Armory guns actually. It is range? Is it my poor aiming skills? Or is it the recoil on a light vehicle suspended under chutes thowing off the aim? Is this vehicle just a really dumb idea? Thanks!
  21. Hello there! This is a post for the ones who want to sumbit pictures of their fighter jets, or attack jets of course, replica or not! Rules: 1. This isn't actually a rule but: All mods are allowed, but make sure to use BDArmory on all planes! 2. Disappoint Jebediah by telling him NOT to go to space! 3. Rule 3. doesn't exist! 4. Tell which mods you are using if it isn't BDArmory Examples: The A-164! (Yes, i broke the rules, i don't have a picture of the weaponised version) Download Mods in spoiler "Last" words So yeah, have fun! Also try to tell others what was good and bad about their plane! Have fun!! -Choice
  22. I'm pretty sure I installed it correctly, it just doesn't work though, the actual group that has the parts in it does not show up. Help please.
  23. I've updated to 1.2 and for some reason the physics behind bdarmory have changed, back in 1.1 they seemed to work fine. I'm having issues with KSP/squad parts not absorbing damage properly. I built a tank out of structural panels and changed the file on the structural panels to have a higher damage protection rating. The problem is, bd armory is shooting (even with very weak guns) straight through the structural panels and completely killing the inside of the tank with 1 shot while leaving the outside in slightly damaged condition. This was never an issue in previous versions, the other versions seemed much more realistic.
  24. First of all, I'd like to thank @ghostbuzzer7 very much for giving me an idea with his tank drive. The wheels and their mechanism are entirely based on his works, and he should get credit for that amazing idea. After seeing his Strv 103 tank on this thread, I had the idea to upscale the mechanism for an actual modded tank with more armor, for @HatBat's military series. It took me quite a while to get it right, but I found that, by removing friction on all but the three center wheels, the tank could spin easier than if all wheels were used. Below is a video demonstrating the rotation capability. Sorry for the low FPS, I'm literally running on a computer weaker than some of the newer smart phones. Of course, this vehicle requires BDArmory continued. I've used KER in my game, but it's not required. Also note that, like in the ghostbuzzer's Strv, the W and S key do not move the vehicle forwards. W turns the tank left, and S right. You can still use A and D for steering at higher speeds. As seen in the video, the turning mechanism sometimes bugs out and makes the vehicle stop. You can fix that by turning in the other direction, and then back into the desired one. Armament is composed of a single M1 turret coupled with a twin 12.7mm machine gun mounted ontop. Since the wheels can only be used for rotation, forward and reverse are controlled by the throttle and by reversing thrust from the engine. Maximum speed is around 30-35 m/s.

  25. Greetings! This is a showcase of all the various aircraft designs that Genesis Industries has come up with. Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile [ZEUS]: A converted MinuteMan III (MMIII) missile that has been retrofitted with a single 25 MT warhead as opposed to 8 of 350 KT warheads. The single warhead re-enters at 2200 m/s and impacts at near 1700 m/s without the aero brakes being engaged. Should the optional brakes be engaged, the warhead will slow down tremendously, use with caution. Inter-Planetary Ballistic Missile [MM-III]: A converted Minmus Rocket carrying 8 Nuclear warheads to targets not exceeding Duna. (Unless Scott Manley). Designed with automatic guidance for warheads. Simply assign one a GPS and fire, and continue doing so or all at once on one target. Warheads will only strike their assigned targets if the descent trajectory is within 5km of the target. (Blast radius about 800m).
