Ages ago i saw a mod, allowing to see trajectory's prediction in flight scene. But it has been lost. Now - it back. Just displays trajectory predictions. Partless, ON/OFF and nothing more. (adds itself with the help of MM-patch to each unit with ModuleCommand). This mod is designed to help with a more accurate landing. If activated in the flight scene, it will draw the trajectory and predict the point of contact. short review full review from Kottabos Download from Spacedock DONATE Source installation: remove previous version and just extract an archive into Gamedata. requirements: ModuleManager
maccollo posted a topic in Challenges & Mission ideasSeeing as Principia is getting to the point where it is quite useable, it seems to be a good time to do this. The challenge is fairly straight forward. A space station has been placed in a magical square orbit around Mun. The objective is to pilot the cargo vessel, which is in low Kerbin orbit, and rendezvous with the station, using as little delta V as possible. You will need a 1.2.2 installation of KSP with a stock planetary setup, and Principia Catalan, then load this save file. https://www.dropbox.com/s/d9vbdw0wba0jkxv/rendezvous.zip Rules: No use of cheats or performance altering mods. Telemetry and visual enhancement mods are allowed. Since this is not a docking challenge, you only have to park within a 100 meter distance from the station, with a relative velocity less than 0.3 m/s. Submissions are scored based on how much delta V remains after rendezvous is complete. The Kerbals must not exit the station. Also crashing into the station to slow down is not allowed The time limit is 5 Kerbin years. This is just a technicality since I can't be certain the orbit of the station will be stable 1000 years from now. This is not a super serious challenge so extensive documentation is not really required. Just post an screenshot showing your overall approach, and one after you've completed the challenge showing how much delta V you have left. However, feel free to show your approach in greater detail if you complete the challenge with a small amount of delta V.
Jens Lyn IV posted a question in Technical Support (PC, unmodded installs)My map view breaks as soon as I achieve escape velocity from Kerbin; the orbit line will disappear, I can no longer place maneouvre nodes, and the frame rate deteriorates. I've tried reversing the orbit line fade direction and reducing it to 50%, but it makes no difference. Is this a known bug?
I took some data from ksp using KOS and came up with a trajectory plot in MATLAB. here is the result: I'm flattening my trajectory at 150km for the moment because the script parameters for trajectory. this is my first plot to work these parameters, next weekend goal: optimize it!
