  1. Full Image Gallery This is a stockalike parts mod that allows you to create Soviet rockets and spacecraft. The parts are made with the "Lego" frame of mind. They all go together to make a certain craft, but are flexible enough to be used in any other design. Thanks to @DiscoSlelge for the wonderful vectors. Old Tantares Old TantaresLV FAQ Q. Where are the IVAs? A. A great deal of time and effort required that I sadly do not have. Manned capsules will aim to have IVAs, but larger station parts will have to make-do with placeholders. Q. Why does the Soyuz seat only two? A. It was the case for a long time, but it now seats three! Q. Why are the rockets overpowered? A. They are balanced against stock parts, as to not be intentionally useless. See here for a better experience courtesy of @pap1723.

  2. [1.2.0] KSP KeepFit - A Kerbal In-mission Fitness Degradation and Gee Loading Addon TLDR; A plugin to track kerbal fitness levels and impact their G-tolerance as a result of spending years bunged up in tiny capsules. Summary of Features - All Kerbals have a fitness level - Each capsule has a defined 'activity level' defining the comfort, room, and built-in fitness capabilities for crew in flight. - All Kerbals are now subscribed to a regime of calistheni caliths ... workouts whilst not on missions to recover their fitness levels. - All Kerbals fitness levels go up or down based on their opportunities for exercise (not just active vessel). - In-flight display of Kerbals fitness levels and Gee loading - Kerbals in active vessel are affected by their current Gee loading - Separate tracking of short and longer term Gee loading (1 and 5 seconds, and 1 and 5 minute aggregates), with lower tolerances for longer term Gee overload - Fitness levels impact Gee tolerance - Visible warning if crew experience dangerous Gee loading - Excessive Gee May cause Untimely Death of crew! - Per save configuration settings - Enable or disable KeepFit without removing addon - Crew fitness levels, settings, and Gee data saved in main game persistence file - revert friendly! - 'WimpMode' to turn Fatal Gee into G-Loss of Consciousness (currently notification only). - Truly Ugly full roster view in Tracking Station and VAB/SPH - Uncounted undetected bugs! - Special extra bonus for using Habitat Pack, as Porkworks Centrifuge part is currently the only part configured by default to bestow EXERCISE on crew on missions How to add the KeepFit part module to your parts Whilst KeepFit makes a wild stab in the dark at choosing a reasonable fitness level to apply to crewed parts, you probably want to add your own configs for your favourite parts if you feel they shouldn't be assumed to be 'cramped' (by default all crewed parts are cramped, as per the Mercury quote 'You didn't so much get into it as wear it' (though dammit I can't find the original quote now). Using modulemanager scripts, you add the module which allows the activity level to be defined for a part, which then goes to affect how quickly your crew's fitness degrades. See below for an example. All you have to do is create a .cfg file, and replace the named parts in the example with the part name (from the part.cfg file, not its name in the parts list in the editor), and choose an activity level for strActivityLevel from the available :- CRAMPED COMFY NEUTRAL EXERCISING // slightly better @PART[mk2LanderCabin] { MODULE { name = KeepFitPartModule strActivityLevel = COMFY } } // even more palatable @PART[cupola] { MODULE { name = KeepFitPartModule strActivityLevel = NEUTRAL } } Download from :- - SpaceDock - GitHub Release Source and Legal Notices Source code on GitHub This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License This mod includes version checking using MiniAVC .

(I killed Jeb in *my own* career game!) - 1.0.2 Compatibility rebuild, no other changes. - 1.0.0 Compatibility rebuild - 0.90.0 Compatibility, added minimum landed gee (default 0.05g) for landed state to imply 'exercising' - other changes see github - MainWindow is no longer an exclusive appLauncher button, so it can be moved around and kept etc, and also hiding mainWindow via the appLauncher no longer hides all the child windows - Reworked UI to be almost nice, and confirmed major functionality working - Fixed lack of fitness updates whilst in spacecenter scene, changed spacecenter button behavior to show fitness roster window, de spammed the logging on the debug build somewhat, and tidied up the applaunch icon. - Added support for ksp-avc/mini-avc, and switched to a compatible versioning scheme 0.2-alpha - Updated to use ksp 0.25 for build, removed module manager from package, switched to using app launcher, otherwise just as broken as previously. 1.0.43 - Removed some unnecessary debug log-spam, and enabled plugin during tracking station + space center scenes, as well as flight, as time passing in these scenes has become 'real' in 0.23.5 1.0.43 - Many cycles of pain later, appveyor is partially working again, though dumping packages always into the same destination 1.0.33rc1 - Interim manual build due to build host plosion - removed debug infinite fuel bobbins, modulemanager dll, and toolbar from distribution zip 1.0.28 - Moved modulemanager dll to the correct place in the installation bundle 1.0.27 - Scrubbed up the roster window (VAB/SPH/Tracking Station) to use the same style as the in-flight display, made crew displays a togglable dropdown for space, and added an all vessels display to in-flight, plus fixed a save bug 1.0.26 - Fixed bug resulting in parts not picking up their specified activityLevel correctly 1.0.25 - Removed egregious 'helloworld' window from KeepFitPartModule in-flight UI 1.0.17 - 1.0.24 - Battled the beast that is AppVeyor ([URL][/URL]) to get automated build + package generation 1.0.11 - 1.0.16 - KeepFitPartModule now contains definition of activityLevel on attached part, vessel takes 'best' activity level among component parts - Landed vessels now take activityLevel to EXERCISING - In-flight UI inspired by/copied from (ish) Alternate Resource Panel. Now displays Gee loading breakdown + fitness of active vessel crew - Fixed it, broke it, fixed it (repeat x99)
  3. Download Here (1.2 is most recent update) EVE is bundled, but be sure to check EVE page for updates as i dont expect to update this more often then every few weeks. And for those of you that want to run this with OPM, check out the following: Pics: Features: *Minimalistic design and lack of scatterer requirement (feel free to run it alongside this mod if you like to, just isnt required for this to look good) allows this to run on potato computers. *All planets but Gilly and Bop have atmospheric scatter or glow effects rendered via EVE cloud layers. Colors are generally highly saturated to give a more sci-fi universe feel compared to the more white and washed out realistic style used in most other mods. *Kerbin, Duna, Eve, and Laythe have light volumetric clouds. They are a good balance between thickness and performance, should not cause any real lag. *Most airless bodies have fog/dust effects. Color choice is fairly varied, with some planets having highly colorful fog while others use a more greyish color. Duna has dust storms and Eeloo has blizzards. Particle density is kept to an absolute minimum to keep performance up. While i cannot speak for everyone, my mid range laptop is capable of handling this mod as well as 2 1000 part warships in low orbit around any planet. *Lite edition has no clouds and does not come with the respective textures (use this if you want more performance or prefer to not have clouds like stock scatterer would). Changelog: V-1.2 *New custom cloud maps in 4096x2048 (8192x4096 for Kerbin), unique to every planet. Styles vary from purely sci-fi to semi-realistic depending on the planet for variety's sake. *Three new higher resolution detail textures which are both high res and do not give tiling issues when viewed from far away. Currently textures are for cumulus, cirrus, and a sci-fi one. *Seven new particle textures. Three are for clouds, all of which are wispy in nature and optimized to look good with very low particle density. Four are for the surface effects which vary from some particulates floating around to full blown dust storms. *Few minor color adjustments to improve looks with the new cloud textures. V-1.1 *Improved detail textures. *Minor changes to atmosphere and glow colors. V-1.0 *Initial release. Planned: *Lava eruption fx for Moho (cryovolcanoes on Eeloo afterwards as an option instead of/alongside the blizzards) *Unique fx for Gilly and Bop. *Requests are welcome (although i may have to say no if it cant be physically done or will end up being a performance concern). Support: For suggestions and issues please post in this thread. I play tested this for 2 days, but there is always the possibility i missed something (or could change something for the better). Also, for all EVE related bugs or questions please go to the EVE thread and do not post here. I repeat, i will not be troubleshooting EVE itself on this thread, just stuff related to my effects pack. Check the readme in the files for credits and licensing information.
  4. EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements - Clouds and City Lights EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements (a.k.a. EVE) is a mod for KSP that adds clouds and city lights. It is highly configurable and a number of other mods provide improved clouds not just for the stock planets, but for other planets provided by other mods. This thread is a continuation of @rbray89's original EVE thread, so that we can continue updates and discussions while we await his return (at which point we can return to that thread). Installation The mod is distributed as two ZIP files, one small one which contains the plugin and shaders, and one large one which contains a sample configuration. If you are installing another mod which supplies EVE configurations, such as SVE, you should not install the sample configs. If you use CKAN, select EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements and then choose a config (if only one is available, that one will auto-select). If you are installing manually, download the latest ZIP files from and unpack them into your KSP directory. The zip files include the "GameData" directory and so this should merge with the same-named directory in your KSP installation, such that after installing, your KSP's GameData directory will contain the "Squad" directory shipped with the game, the "EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements" directory which you just installed, and, if you installed the sample configs, a BoulderCo directory. Configs for other mods are generally shipped in their own directories. It is strongly recommended that you use the 64-bit version of KSP when using EVE, especially with advanced configurations. Note that you will not necessarily see any clouds on Kerbin in the main menu. Load a game to check if you've successfully installed the mod. If you wish to install for KSP versions prior to KSP 1.2, see the original thread, but note that there is little support for old versions. Compatibility with other Mods EVE is compatible with most mods, but in particular it is tested to inter-operate well with these visual mods: Scatterer - makes atmospheres realistically "haze". PlanetShine - makes the glow from planets/moons produce ambient light. (more to come as KSP 1.2 mods are released) There are also a number of excellent mods that provide advanced configurations beyond the sample ones shipped alongside EVE: Stock Visual Enhancements (SVE) - high quality visuals, recommended for higher-end systems. Para-Sci High-Performance Atmosphere Pack - sleek but still beautiful visuals, even less CPU/GPU demanding than the basic configuration. Be sure to remove the sample configs (the "GameData/BoulderCo/" directory) if you manually install a mod that provides all its own configurations. If installing via CKAN, you will be prompted with what needs removing. If using the Real Solar System mod, you will need different configurations, such as: Real Solar System Visual Enhancements Performance EVE runs fine on mid-range systems. See the alternative configurations above for different performance characteristics. The most expensive effect is currently the volumetric clouds. You can turn these off in the in-game configuration dialog, or by editing the configs with a text editor. Obviously the more cloud layers, the more costly are the effects. By default, only cloud layers within 10km of the camera can produce volumetric clouds. Configuration The sample configuration includes a single layer of clouds and city lights for Kerbin and cloud layers for other stock planets/moons as appropriate. You can modify the configuration in-game by pressing Alt-0 (zero), though be warned that this is an advanced feature. If you save broken configs you will need to re-install your chosen configs. There is no undo. Documentation for the config files is currently pending, but note that since EVE-1.2-1, the _MinLight option has been changed. It should be set to 0 (the default) unless you want clouds to glow on the night side (eg. auroras). Also note the relatively new "UVNoise" setting, which allows adding noise to the texture look-ups, either for large animated cloud effects (see Jool), or to mask pixelization in fine detail (see Kerbin). Pretty Pictures and Videos For now, see the original thread for slightly outdated pictures and videos. If you have ones you wish to display here, provided they are short and contain no revenue-generation, just ask. Contributing If you have code changes you would like to contribute to the core plugin or shaders, please submit a Pull Request on the GitHub project: If you have major config changes you would like to contribute, these are probably best supplied to users as an independent mod, in the same way as others listed above like SVE. If you want to contribute financially, please see the original thread for a link to the original author's donation page. The original author has done by far the largest effort in bringing this mod to you and the KSP community.
  5. Hello everyone, i don't like squads idea of batteries. The parts in the game called "batteries" actually behave like capacitors: unlimited re-/charge rates, and low EC storage capacity. My idea of a new mod: increase the available EC-storage per mass, and to keep the balance: a) limit the "fuel" flow rate (if that is possible) or b) convert EC to another type of "fuel" and thus enable some sort of re-/charge rate. I present: Real Battery Imgur album: With this mod you get a realistic battery behavior: Charge and discharge rates are limited (dependent on battery tech ie. Lead_Acid or Li_Ion...) and is displayed in the right click menu Charge rate degrades, if the battery comes close to full charge or becomes too hot/cold (see wiki for detailed behaviour) EC range of operation is configurable in RealBattery_mm.cfg file; What this means: Discharge RealBattery until EC is at xx% level, and recharge until EC reaches yy% level. defaults are 10% and 90%. Much higher EC per mass ratio than stock "batteries" Stock batteries are currently cloned and enhanced with the new behavior RealBattery uses Stored Charge (1SC = 3600EC) Fits perfectly in the realism suite of RO, RSS or RP-0.

  6. Latest Release Spacedock Source Original mod by: @tgruetzm Continuation by: Angel-125 Snacks was originally published by tgruetzm in August of 2014. It offered a novel and lightweight solution to life support for those that didn't want the complexity of more sophisticated mods like TAC Life Support. Two years later, the game has advanced and while the original author appears to have moved on, it was time to give Snacks an update. Snacks Continued retains the simplicity of the original mod while adding new options. You can configure things like snacks consumed per meal, meals per day, enable/disable recycling, recycling efficiency, and various penalties for hungry kerbals including reputation loss, fines, and partial loss of vehicle control. You can even enable/disable random snacking if desired. Just like with the stock CommNet, the penalties won't brick your mission- or your save. And if you're new to Snacks Continued, please consult the KSPedia.

  7. So, I thought I would make a planet pack for KSP with Kopernicus. So, decided to start on it recently. This is just a thread to sort of act as a development log, and will be updating every time a new major change is made. Planets that will be added: Nibrek: An active world with dark terrain and lava. This planet is geologically active and orbits the sun in Kerbin's L3 point. Num: This moon is a very beautiful world orbiting Nibrek. It has rolling hills, huge mountains, wide oceans and a Kerbin-like atmosphere. Sumnim: A disgusting looking red moon orbiting in a distant inclined orbit around Nibrek. Very spikey terrain. This mod was inspired by Antichthon, a hypothetical planet thought up by the ancient Greeks that supposedly orbited on the exact opposite side of the Sun.
  8. so the general idea requires 2 mods we all know and love 1 is bd armory the other is the unwieldy red headed step child extra-planetary launch pads- thank god for the stock parts addon for this . iv seen sw denes add bd armory guns onto a single part model before so if and this is a big if you could take the craft file of the player made ship drone rover etc whatever your going to use to attack with and it takes the parts and aero data from it but turns it into a single part model for low parts count and adds in a bd ai then you should be on the right track for haveing a battle without murdering your frame rate the downside it's one part so it would have a hp bar so to speak rather than dynamic battle like watching a plane go down when it loses a wing. the other piece is bases and iv been thinking kerbin side can add in structures anywhere so why not make a centerpiece like a town hall piece that can be placed off world a part that can be constructed using EPL or transported to another planet it clamps into the ground and the model is replaced with a world part a persistent model like the VAB/SPH then you have a pop-up menu that let's you select the next persistent base model you would like to build and the base starts sucking up resources to build it once the tank stats are full for the building it saves ads the new part and either place's it in a predetermined spot or gives you a base module to place like you did the center piece so that every base can be individualized it would be posable to add in RTS elements other than battle like resource management by using something like the usi mods to manage the populace and usi has a nice warehouse system going for it that would work so that you don't have to directly link all your bases together to share resources i don't pretend to know how to even remotely start coding for this i can't even mod a texture with a tutorial thermal damage for the rts units would be a combined total of all the parts thermal resistance divided by the number of parts it has. example 2 parts thermal rateing is 1500 on one and 2400 on the other 3900 divided by 2 becomes 1950 total so i have no dought that getting this to work and getting the mods involved to work with kerbal multiplayer would be a nightmare but haveing this would bring so much more to the game it would make our dreams of carrier baced space battles real it would make building off-world more important to protect yourself from the rebel army's in the campaign as you head from planet to planet securing your bases against the attacking fleets the easy way to add in space battles with bots is to add scripted events into the game where they add ships in on a collision course when you pass altitude markers between planets they are advanced attackers so they can just warp in/spawn and encounters as for ground/air-based battles spawn in random script events a certain distance away from a planetary base that the player placed some random base's around other planets that the player can attack it adds substance into the sandbox and it makes advancing more rewarding when you actually land on a planet even if you take out the bd weapons pack it would make a nice base/resource management mod if not the best one. think of it like adding a mmo rts to ksp so advancing brings new benefits like money resources science maybe some kind of resource that the attackers drop to create your bases or units with it's just a thought but i think its a good one anyone is free to take my idea, in fact, i encourage it because I want to see this. ps upgrading to a newer cooler looking model would be just like creating a new base module so that we can go from like a first base made out of a shack and cardboard boxes to a thriving futuristic city it's almost a game in itself but maybe someone can run it by the devs and see if wee can't have it as some kind of DLC or something there's a pole as well for people who wish to vote and see what other people think is the best idea in all this I will most likely never look at this so don't expect updates its just an idea hopefully someone takes it and runs with it. so look for more on it if some one decides to pick it up

  10. Здраствуйте любители космоса. Подскажите пожалуйста мод автопилота к версии ksp 1.2.9 какие моды пробовал: MechJeb - 2.6.0 вылетает при загрузке.
  11. Shhhh... You can procure it here... Have you wanted a base for landing huge planes? Are you running your own Kerbal Security Program? ...or do you just want to feel like a James Bond villain? Well, this series of bases are for you! Included in this release is 'The Block' a Top Secret base hidden on an unpopulated forgotten island somewhere in the southern hemisphere. The base's real name is unknown and if you ask anyone there what its name is they'll just stare at you blankly. Also included is 'Kilo-Sierra-Papa' Airbase. Here someone locked up an artifact in one of the hangers. No one is allowed in, or is allowed to know what is stored in there. No one but Jeb... This has been a little project in the making for over a year. I put it on the back burner until 1.1 was released. This release includes: 'The Block' 'Kilo-Sierra-Papa' 2 Types of Hangers (Click the Far Right Stripe to Open/Close the Doors) 2 Types of Control Towers Light Tower Radar Station Fuel Tanks Helipads also... very Top Secret extras. Coming Soon: Bulwark Air Station, KHAARP Dependencies: Kerbal Konstructs you can get it here. Issues: Lift and Hanger door animations are a little broken due to changes in new animation code (KSP vs Kerbal Konstructs) hopefully there will be a solution soon. FIXED! Cameras get stuck on the top of the hangers if you zoom out too far, this is a trait dealing with statics in KSP. I made the hangers large enough to allow some room for the camera. Change Log: 1.0.11: Hot fix for the radar animation. 1.0.1: Fixed the lift and hanger door animations. Added fuel tanks, Kilo-Sierra-Papa Airbase, and a few more extras. 1.0: Initial release Credit: Special thank you goes to AlphaAsh for his help, support, his work on Kerbal Konstructs, and the shiney 'Top Secret' banner on the Kerbal Konstructs page. A thank you to Lack for letting me use his models as long as I gave him credit. Although, this was about a year ago, I hope he remembers. Wind sock and palm trees are by Lack, approach lights are based off of his original model.

  12. Hi. I've been trying to replace a texture on @raidernick's Huygens probe with one I edited in GIMP. It's saved as a .dds, though strangely it's five times the size of the original skin, and the edit is just the ESA logo replaced with the NASA logo. I have tried to use Module Manager to perform the texture swap, but nothing I tried work. The texture that the game used would always be the default one. My last MM file looks like this: @PART[rn_huygens]:FOR[RN_US_Probes] { @MODEL { %texture = huygens_main, RN_US_Probes/Cassini/huygens_main_NASA } } I'm not at all familiar with Module Manager, but I did read the tutorial. Tried to use no symbol in front of the texture line and then tried the %, but neither worked. Today, I tried renaming my texture file to the one the game uses. What I got was a Huygens probe that was grey. I'm overall unsure exactly what the problem is since I don't know enough about texturing and Module Management to troubleshoot further reliably with a major time investment. I will likely continue to work at the problem myself, but I feel I'm just missing something simple that a more experienced modder would see in an instant such as a syntax error or misuse of Module Manager config files. If anyone can give me some feedback, I would be really appreciative of that. Overall, I wonder if either my .dds is too large (5.4MB vs 1.3MB for the original file), or my MM file is trying to find the wrong part.
  13. Ever wanted your stock parts to be moved to Community Tech Tree nodes, but don't know how to do it yourself? WELL LOOK NO FARTHER! CTTStockRebalance is a simple mod where stock parts are moved to CTT categories, as well as putting parts in different tiers for sensible progression. Dependencies: -Community Tech Tree by Nertea. Link here. -ModuleManager by sarbian. Link here FAQ: Q: I want *insert part here* to be moved to a new node! A: Ask me! I'll see what I can do Q: Will you support mod parts? A: Maybe. Current list of parts changed: Mk1 Lander Can (Enhanced Survivability) Mk1 Crew Cabin (Enhanced Survivability) Kelus Mobility Enhancer (Space Exploration) Mk2 Lander Can (Simple Command Pods) Mk2 Service Bay (Simple Command Pods) Thermal Control System (Medium) (Heat Management Systems) 3.25m Heat Shield (Heat Management Systems) 10m Heat Shield (Advanced Heat Management) Thermal Control System (Large) (Advanced Heat Management) Known bugs: The Kelus Mobility Enhances has the wrong name in the config. Changelog: Download on Spacedock! License: GNU General Public License v3 (This is my first major mod, so let me know what I can do better in terms of my post layout.)
  14. Need More Rotors? Apart from Firespitter and KAX, I felt there wasn't enough rotarywing parts. This mod is my attempt to answer that. Introducing K.R.X. (Kerbal Rotor Expansion). DOWNLOAD From SpaceDock! Videos: Included in this release: Heron: coaxial rotor Sparrow: 3 blade rotor (left and right rotating versions) Osprey: 3 blade tilt-rotor style (left and right rotating versions) Seagull: 6 blade super heavy rotor Tail Rotors: 3 Blade, 6 Blade, and Fenestron Issues: Some tuning and balancing is still needed. Co-axial rotor (Heron) has a problem with one of the rotor switch/prop-blur, a limitation of firespitter. I'm working on a fix. Recommended Mods: Throttle Controlled Avionics: For single rotor use 'unbalanced thrust' on the main rotor and 'manual' on the tail rotor. For intermeshing, tandom, or quad, etc. configurations, use 'thrust'. Change Log: Version 0.31.1 Minor Update -Fixed Crash Tolerance on Fenestron tail rotor -Fixed Spelling Error on Osprey rotors -Increased torque compansation in Osprey rotors Version 0.31: -Added Fenestron tail rotor -Corrected the direction of the Osprey rotors -Increased the thrust of the Osprey rotors Version 0.30: Added 2 new tail rotors: -TR7 tail rotor to compliment the Sparrow main rotor. -TR24 tail rotor to compliment the Sea Gull main rotor. Added specially rigged gimbals to main rotors to emulate cyclic. Remodeled the Osprey rotors. Version 0.25: Initial release. Additional Credit: Snjo and RoverDude: for FireSpitter (*.dll Packaged with K.R.X.) Keptin: The sounds were made by Keptin (tweaked by me) and for much of the inspiration of this mod.

  15. Nuclear Aircraft Engines Download Thermonuclear Turbines on SpaceDock! A new hot way to get into orbit! This is a small engine mod that adds nuclear turbine aircraft engines based off of this concept, Aircraft Nuclear Propulsion, Project Pluto and the similar Soviet program Tupolev Tu-95LAL, also with a little influence from the Choujikuu Yousai Macross anime series and sequels to give two of the engines space capability. The concept behind the engine is that thermal energy is transferred through a heat exchanger into the "can" (combustion section of a turbine) instead of using combustion to rapidly heat up gasses to turn the turbine and provide thrust.

  16. First time posting on the forums, so please let me know if I've something wrong. I am working on a concept for a mod, and I wanted to know if it's possible for IVAs to extend outside of the model of a part. One of the main parts of my mod is a habitat based on a real life Mars colony concept, and the real life building is inset into the ground. I know parts themselves can't go under the surface, or they'll explode, but is it possible to have a short habitat sitting one the surface with an IVA that extends below the bottom of the part to simulate the habitat being partially buried? Would this show up? Would it show up through the ground? Thank you for any assistance that you can provide!
  17. Launch Numbering is a very simple mod - with one job to do. Every time you launch a vehicle, the mod examines the name. If it's seen that name launch before, it appends a number on the end. So, if you launch the same vehicle 4 times, they should all be uniquely named. Downloadable from Spacedock Source on github MIT Licensed In game settings, you'll find options on whether we use Arabic or Roman numerals, and whether we show Bloc numbers (wherein we try to identify "variants" of the vessel, in terms of its structure, and show it as a different Bloc). Now that this is doing what I wanted, I'm open to suggestions for anything that others would like to be able to configure with it.
  18. I have recently started playing a modded save, and have been experiencing some oddities. When I load the save, the orbits of all of my existing ships are shifted. The semi-major axis remains the same, but the periapsis is lowered while the apoapsis is raised. I have already lost two sets of relay satellites this way. The editor also freezes occasionally whenever I hover over the parts that I have placed. I just launched a Duna lander. When I attempted to enter Duna's atmosphere to aerobrake, the game still registered my ship as being in space. As time went by, the atmosphere indicator went down a small bit, and rapidly went back up to space, but my altitude stayed constant, almost like Duna's atmosphere was disappearing momentarily. A few ships equipped with robotics parts have spazzed out. Any thoughts?

  19. Hi guys, I'm having trouble with the Rpm Mod, it is not working. I've searched all over the internet, sometimes people do not install it in the proper way, so i checked and i did intall the mod in right way, everything is fine (location in GameData, .dll locations) yet, when i launch the game, it seems that it is not working, the cockpit it's still the same as in the vanilla game. I need help guys, i really want to play with this mod.
  20. I'm making a mod that will introduce a completely new way to make wheels work. I already have the models and the basic systems working. The mod will add a new resource, torque, that engines make in exchange of fuel. Wheels use torque instead of electric charge. The thing is that it seems KSP, when the wheels are checking for torque, checks the left wheels first and therefore gives more power to them. This makes the car turn slightly to the right. The easy fix is that every player adjusts the traction limiter of the wheels perfectly, which is pretty time consuming and confusing. My idea, in which I need help with, is making it so that the wheels somehow check for the amount (persentage) of torque in the engine and adjust how much they take. This sounds pretty simple but I have ZERO background in coding and these CFG files in general. As of right now, this is how the wheel takes torque, just for clarification: RESOURCE { name = Torque rate = 1000 } And this is the resource conversion part of the engine: INPUT_RESOURCE { ResourceName = LiquidFuel Ratio = 0.035 FlowMode = STAGE_PRIORITY_FLOW } OUTPUT_RESOURCE { ResourceName = Torque Ratio = 200 DumpExcess = false } } RESOURCE { name = Torque amount = 20 maxAmount = 20 } Any ideas, help, or feedback are seriously appreciated
  21. So I have built a vessel to carry my crew to the Jovian system in KSP. I am trying to leave the Kerbin system with a DT Vista Fusion Engine, but I keep running into the same problem over and over. Out of the blue, my thrust drops to 0. I check Kerbal Engineer and it says that my fuel is burning and all other resources are being consumed as normal. Check the engine itself and it says it has 600Kn of thrust, but my orbital speed isn't changing at all. There is a constant supply of power coming from the Nuclear fusion generator, keeping the power above 2.5Gw. This isn't happening right when I start my burn either, I will use 1,750DV in a certain direction with perfect output from the engine, but after that it just stops, with 250 more DV required to finish my burn correctly. I have been looking over this all night and I cannot for the life of me figure out what is causing this constant failure in engine output. Any advice? Anyone else seen this weird bug?
  22. I was wondering if there are any camera mods for kerbal space program that currently work with ksp 1.2. (it appears that camera tools by BD doesn't work anymore)
  23. I heard of this one cool concept to protect spacecraft from aerodynamic shock heating with an electromagnetic shield. I would love to see a mod of this, how it would work is a part would project a bubble around the ship, and use electric charge to power it, the diameter of the bubble could also be variable, the larger it is the more power it consumes, when there is no more power left the shield goes away and parts are no longer protected. This could be done through the use of separate parts or as an option that can be changed both in editor and in flight. The bubble should have a near infinite thermal tolerance but i think it would be more realistic if the power usage was proportional to both the size of the bubble and the heat acting on it. Also the bubble should have drag that depends on the diameter. here is an example of how it would look.
  24. Im looking for a bda add-on that adds weapons for orbital combat. I was wondering if you knew of one.
  25. This mod adds flames and smoke to certain parts' joint break event. At the moment, these parts include: -anything with "wing" in the name -anything with "fuselage" in the name -anything with fuel or oxidizer as resources. -engines.
