  1. Hello everyone! We have an exciting announcement to make regarding Kerbal Space Program on console. Here at the KSP HQ, we put the players at the heart of every decision we make and everything we do. We are very fortunate that an amazing community grew around KSP, whose members are passionate, supportive, engaged and provide us with invaluable feedback that we are always monitoring and listening to. We are currently working to bring Kerbal Space Program 1.2.2. - Loud and Clear! as a free update for console versions, allowing players to enjoy the game at its fullest. We are working hand in hand with BlitWorks, who specialize in optimizing PC games for consoles and have worked on several hit independent games for several platforms. We’re thrilled about our collaboration and we’re certain that our conjoint efforts will bear the fruits we are hoping for. The latest Update, Kerbal Space Program 1.2.2 - Loud and Clear! for consoles will let you enjoy a broad range of improvements and features that will enrich the overall game experience, such as the introduction of CommNet and KerbNet, a rewrite of the Stability Assist System (SAS) that makes your launches more accurate and fuel efficient, more tweakable options for many parts, a complete fuel system redesign, and much more! This update will be FREE for all owners of the Xbox One and PS4 versions, regardless of the date of purchase. Moreover, we are also very happy to announce, that with this update's launch, the PS4 port will be made available in Europe, too! Our goal is to release the Updates early next year. Here are some of the highlights for this update: Set up your own communications networks and have better control over your probes even when they cannot establish a direct connection. Link your probes back to Kerbin via an antenna to be completely autonomous and build relay networks for better science transmission! Use satellites for reconnaissance purposes, scan the terrain below you, find biomes and anomalies, and place custom waypoints with a targeting interface. The Fuelflow system has been rewritten and now you have total control over how the fuel flows through your vessels! The stability of Wheels has been greatly improved. Your rovers, wheeled vehicles will now turn and handle smoothly, making the overall driving experience more pleasant. Aircraft are also more stable, and all wheels have realistic load limits. You can see the full 1.2.2 changelog here : =================================== v1.2.0 ============================================================ +++ *Fix data corruption file issue *Fix freezing issues at VAB and SHP +++Unity 5.4 * Engine change from 5.2 to 5.4.0p4 +++Libraries and Packages * Implemented Text Mesh Pro, which basically vectorizes all of our fonts, making them look much better, especially at larger font sizes. Also has a lot of extra utility that we can leverage for various effects. * Upgraded Vectrosity to latest version. * Upgraded Vehicle Physics Pro to latest version. +++Code cleanup * Heavily reduced garbage generation caused by foreach loops, Linq usage, and various other things. * Made sure that all of our singleton classes properly clean themselves up. * Optimized KerbalEVA. * Rewrote CrewManifest and related crew handling (roster, vessel crew list, etc). * Optimized PartModules. * Optimize latitude/longitude/altitude calls to often use a combined get-all method. * Fix how some enumerator interfaces are declared in classes. * Optimized waypoint site name generation to generate a lot less garbage with its string lists. * Many part modules now cache parts instead of polling the entire vessel multiple times per frame. * Revised how most forces and torques are applied (see note on this subject below in Moddability). * Added DoubleCurve * ScenarioModules now awake and load during game load and so are valid in modules' OnStart. * Considerable work to Krakensbane and FloatingOrigin to improve precision and performance and lower garbage. * Various ISRU fixes and performance improvements. * Default KSPEvents and KSPActions to being nonpersistent in terms of state. This means all their fields won't be serialized/deserialized to and from the save game files. * Now always use g0 = 9.80665 and G (big G) = 6.67408e-11 for gravitational constants. +++Flow Overhaul * Rewrote resource flow entirely. Now just four flow modes. Can set per-tank priority for all but AllVessel and NoFlow. Surface crossfeed for rocket engines as well as jets. Fixed priority issues. Much faster. PartResources no longer MonoBehaviours. Can set crossfeed per attach node. Electric Charge now uses STAGE_PRI so can be prioritized. Resource transfer in flight can be set to require valid crossfeed for those resources which obey crossfeed. With Advanced Tweakables on, can see flow graph in VAB/SPH (right-click on a part). +++SAS * Fixed SAS unlocking for all ships in physics range when maneuvering the ship in focus. * The code for the older “Stability Assist” and somewhat newer “Pilot Steering” modes has been unified. * SAS now dynamically adjusts for the vessel’s mass properties and available control authority. * SAS uses a “stability decay” method to reduce oscillations (or twitching) when very near the target orientation. * Pilot Steering modes now include a “coast” and “stop” mode when transitioning between steering points. +++Wheels * WheelColliders are now properly handled by collision manager, and no longer require the wheel "blocking" workaround to clip into other parts. * Fix hill "sticking" force overcompensating, resulting in a not so slow drift uphill when parked on one with wheels or legs. * Wheel deployment modules now search along the animation timeline upon retraction for the time closest to where the wheel suspension is located, instead of starting from 100%. This fixes the hop when retracting landing legs. * Added tweakable that allows player to specify whether his wheels deploy while shielded in a cargo bay. * Fix landing legs being exported to the wrong collision layer. * Wheel gravity is now properly handled in a standard manner, which should fix a good deal of instability. * Fix EVA kerbals blowing up wheels on contact. They now go through them. * Fixed landing legs teleporting from a semi-deployed state to a semi-retracted state when retracted. * Wheel damage does not process damage for two seconds after a vessel loads, prevents spontaneous explosions. * Suspension colliders are no longer disabled for 0.5 seconds upon retract, causing them to fall through the ground momenarily, blowing up your engines. * Deployable landing gear and legs now have deployment sounds. +++Communications Networks * Additional functionality and gameplay components to the Antenna and Probe parts through a series of distinct but related mechanics. When CommNet is enabled, probes will require a connection back to Kerbin or to a control point to have full control, and crewed vessels lacking pilots will have slightly limited control without such a connection. Relays can extend the range of such connections and bounce signals around planets and moons that would otherwise occlude. Science transmission receives a bonus for high signal strength. New antenna parts allow building complex networks, which can be visualized in map view. See KSPedia for more details. +++KerbNet * Added KerbNet, which allows the player to see terrain under their satellite, and place custom waypoints with a targeting interface. Allows the player to see biomes and anomalies at higher levels. Scan field of view for KerbNet varies by part and smoothly changes between surface altitude and orbital altitude. * KerbNet allows all probes and labs manned by a scientist to map as long as they have a communications network connection that eventually bounces to Kerbin. * Gave KerbNet visibility modes to hide some of the interface around the map. * Gave KerbNet auto-refresh settings to allow it to refresh without player intervention. * Gave KerbNet enhanced mode, which activates on some vessels such as rovers to give them better sensors in certain situations. * Add game option that allows KerbNet to either orient to the orbit normal, preventing flipping when passing over the poles, or to orient to north, which is less disorienting for some players. * Many aspects of KerbNet given flavor and fluff. Scanning a sun results in yellow and white noise, scanning a gas giant is similar except hued based on that planet. Stars and scan static can appear in the background past the horizon of a scan. * Resources can specify a scientific abbreviation. Utilized in KerbNet for the mode icon. +++Debug Window * Completely overhauled the debug window to utilize new Unity GUI. * New debug console has syntax highlighting that highlights classes with persistent pastel colors if they bracket their names. [Bracket] your class names in debug logs modders. * New debug console has command input support which is moddable, type /help for a full listing of commands, and what they do. * Added new debug screen for creating kerbals with specific names, genders, skills, levels, and classes. * Debug options for displaying errors/exceptions as screen messages. * Added set orbit debug cheat screen. * Added rendezvous controls to set orbit debug cheat screen. +++Orbits * All anomalies (ObT, mean anomaly, eccentric anomaly, true anomaly) are now consistently negative when approaching the periapsis for both elliptical and hyperbolic trajectories (previously, only hyperbolic trajectories used negative anomalies). This means that eccentric anomaly and true anomaly are now in the range -pi..pi instead of 0..2pi for elliptical trajectories. * Reference frames instead of quaternions are used for calculating orbital position and velocity, leading to increased speed when rendering patched conics. * Improved precision in orbit calculations. * Rewrote orbit targeting / closest approach finding. * Fixed issues where objects jump when going on and off rails. * Fix target orientation markers when the target is on rails. * Refactored such that orbital position and velocity and vessel position and velocity are correct for the FixedUpdate cycle. * Made target relative velocity work for celestial bodies. * Trajectories that re-encounter a body just escaped are now detected. * Trajectories that encounter two bodies now correctly show the first encounter even if it is further out (eg, Mun stealing a Minmus encounter). * Elliptical encounter trajectories no longer flicker. * Conic patch settings (draw mode and limit) are now exposed in the Video Settings. * Added game option for legacy orbit targeting. * Map node labels space themselves out nicely when cluttered. * Targeting info for moons in other SoIs now works. +++Contracts * Contracts are now also weighted by celestial body, so if the player starts declining contracts to Jool, they will see them less often. * Contracts now keep track of if they have been viewed. There are three states: unseen, seen but not clicked, and clicked and read. * Contract weighting now applies negative weight if a contract has been viewed when it expires. * Exploration contracts now always appear in Mission Control if there is not one currently available. * Explore contracts overhauled, they now utilize the same logic World Firsts used to use to select a "package" of related objectives. They can appear multiple times per planet now, and should have a much more logical progression than they used to. * Exploration contract progression slowed slightly, now requires science on a planet before allowing a fly by of the next one. Also, in the early game, return from orbit and return from fly by are required before advancing on the Muns of the homeworld. * Removed old single objective World First contracts, other than the initial four. * Waypoint captions for survey contracts now state the altitude band of each waypoint. * Fix contract orbits not cleaning up properly when their contracts are cancelled as opposed to completed. * Grand tour contracts now require a new vessel to complete, so they cannot be cheesed by keeping one around that has seen every planet. * Fix contextual surveys not properly bouncing the navigation waypoint. * Asteroid recovery objective reworded and given a note for clarity. * Asteroid side objectives in facility construction contracts will now not appear unless the same requirements for asteroid recovery contracts to appear are met. * Crew transfer progress tracking objective reworded to make it clear that it does not need to utilize existing crew. * Reworded objective to hold above a waypoint in stationary orbit contracts for clarity. * If Kerbal G limits are enabled, tourists can either require going unconscious or require not going unconscious during the trip. Check the parameter details! * Adjusted Exploration contract flavor text to work better in multi-objective scenarios. +++Biomes * Biomes for many bodies have been redesigned for clarity, beauty, and utility. And we've hidden a few extra surprises around as well! +++Easter Eggs * Added hidden fun stuff to almost every planet. * Mohole given an empty PQSCity, which allows it to appear in KerbNet. * Gave many easter eggs colliders. * Fix Duna's SSTV not playing. * Unburied Duna's MSL. +++Other Work * Advanced Tweakables option in Gameplay Settings. With it off, some advanced features are hidden. Defaults off. * Autostrutting available for all parts (AT). * Autostruts can be gated behind a technology in career and science mode defined in Physics.cfg, by default it is the same technology regular struts are on. * Add grandparent mode to auto-struts. * Parachutes can have automatic holding of deployment until safe (AT). * Actuation toggles now affect symmetry counterparts in editor (some other RCS/gimbal bits do too). Also hidden under Advanced Tweakables (AT). * Utilize HSV color space in more locations. * Quadrupled the amount of loading screen messages. You know, the important stuff. * Loads of new options in the difficulty settings. * Science data can be transferred by the part-part transfer mechanic (for certain probe cores). * Added physics easing for when landed/splashed vessels come off rails. * Certain probe cores (and the new science container part) can transfer data with no EVA required. * There is an additional drag curve whose function is to raise drag coefficient to a power based on the mach number. This leads to blunter things having (relatively) more drag supersonic than they did and pointier things having (relatively) less than they did. Pods will slow down better on steep reentries and planes will produce drag in better proportion to how streamlined they are (less overpowered airplane drag). * Fairings now include support for placing multiple payloads in them (and showing trusses for said payloads). * Tourist contracts work better with the Kerbal Gee Tolerance option. * Add a small negative contract weight for contracts that are read but not accepted. * Existing resource narrow band scanner ported to KerbNet interface, allowing it to zoom, among other things. * Removed biome readout information and flag rendering on narrow band scanner. * Added ellipsis to many text labels and fields, to prevent overflow while looking nice. * Input keys in the settings screen automatically expand with screen resolution. * Default parachute deployment mode set to "when safe" - players everywhere rejoice. * All tooltips cooked to a nice golden color. * Added Viewmatic Survey Satellite stock relay craft. * Added /b4d455 command, which starts a game off with basically everything. * Background ambiance in the space center scene now fades smoothly between birds by day and crickets by night. * Background ambiance in the space center scene now fades out when at max time warp. * Background ambiance in general no longer always starts at zero, it randomly seeks when the scene loads. Hence, loading a game no longer immediately plays the exact same bird trill. * Most stock planes given a look over based on player feedback. * Added editor part categories for ground, electrical, communication, thermal, payload, and coupling parts. * Screen message text given much higher visibility. * Facilities in the space center now have verbose context menus in sandbox mode, allowing you to see their upgrades. They always show the maximum level of upgrades. * "Require Complete" on antennae is now persistent and its state is saved. * Added community contest winner kerbal and unique waypoint names. * Camera can now be pointed at parts, not just vessel center of mass. * Added Plane and Relay vessel types/icons. * Airbrakes now have deployment limits. * Rebalance fairing panel mass downwards slightly. * Difficulty options for limiting part pressure and G-force tolerance. * Difficulty option for kerbal G-force tolerance. Kerbals go unconscious if their tolerance is exceeded. * Slight performance tweaks to some early 1.25m engines. * Swap around some early science parts in the tech tree. * Redid Eve's atmospheric pressure curve to smooth it out and remove errors. Eve's atmosphere thins out much faster now, so the high atmosphere is thinner. Also tweaked Jool's atmosphere so it rapidly goes from 15 atmospheres to 50 in the last few kilometers to achieve crushing pressures. * Can right-click on icons in the staging list to trigger the Part Action Window. * Support Rigid Attachment (non-bendy) option for part joints in cfg and in the PAW. * Added an "Action Groups Always Allowed" advanced difficulty option. * Add 0.625m heat shield. * Lift from capsules and heat shields better handled to make lifting reentries better (easier). * Restructured in-flight pause menu to better show all options. * Don't lock all controls when using Warp To, only some. * Fix terrain vanishing at 1000m depth. * Allow targeting of close vessels by double-clicking. * Angle the canopies of parachutes in symmetry away from each other. * Resource transfer rate when transferring between parts now based on ingame time (taking warp into account) not realtime. * Fix issues with TR-2L stats. * Show tooltips on kerbal portraits. * Fix scientist skill text. * Fix issue with ladders not being re-grab-able if you board a seat, retract a ladder, leave the seat, then extend the ladder. * Update maneuver node patches (for targeting) when the vessel target changes. * The runway lights now follow the day/night cycle. * Moved a low tech wheel to a lower tech tier. * Moved an atmospheric sensor down to the science tech branch. +++Misc Fixes and Changes * Fixed issue where disabled RCS would enable during staging. Mods need to set stagingEnabled=False in their ModuleRCS blocks (unless they want staging on). * Catch exceptions during part loading so the loading process doesn't come to a halt. * Fix some issues with decouple modules, allow specifying the ejection force vector. * Try/catch the other PartModule update loops so one bad module doesn't interrupt others. * Don't try to set constant KSPFields. * Null check when getting resource mass on unloaded vessels with removed resources. * Remove some debug spam when querying Science Subjects by ID. * Fix Resource Display to show all resources correctly. * Improve launch clamp stability on revert. * Fix an issue with ModuleTripLogger not applying to kerbals in non-root parts. * Ablative shields with Ablator tweaked down in the VAB no longer show up pre-scorched in flight. * Ablative shields no longer show solid black when reaching zero ablator. * Fix serious regression with flow multipliers in ModuleEnginesFX. * Fix a wrong rotation in Moment of Intertia calculations. * Correct stock temperature gauges to use gauge threshold. * Fixed currency symbols not displaying properly when UI scale is changed by using inline Text Mesh Pro sprites. * Probe cores now have a hibernate feature which offers only partial control when activated but draws much less electricity. Can be set to automatically hibernate in warp (advanced tweakable). * Added a game setting for default throttle (rather than keeping it in Physics.cfg). * Fix bug where space center view can be messed up on loading a save from the main menu if the game was switched away from during load (old workaround was clear the input locks). * Renamed Science Tech to Scanning Tech since that's what it's for. * Fixed where CoPOffset and CoLOffset had CoMOffset added to them during application. * Fixed where an exception during loading of parts would stop the game loading. * IVA navball works like normal navball (vectors hidden when velocity is too small, radial and normal cues show only in Orbit mode). * Fix an issue where prop requirement met (on engine menus) was not being intuitively correct. See note in Moddability, below, for how to update jet parts. * Fix kerbals sliding on ladders. * For EVA kerbals, 'SAS' light shows whether the kerbal will reorient when a translate key is pressed (as set in Input Settings). T toggles this behavior when in EVA mode. * Several dialogs (such as quicksave) now accept Escape and Enter keys for dismissing or accepting contents. Science reports accept Tab to cycle messages. * Quicksave and Quickload hotkeys (F5/F9) work in KSC view. * The VAB/SPH part search tool now clears when pressing Escape. * Crossfeed toggle module can now require a technology researched to enable itself. Radial decouplers now cannot toggle crossfeed until Fuel Systems. * Fixed loader info in saves to not contaminate a stock save if you load a modded save while playing pure stock. * Can toggle whether navball hides going into map view. * Can now use antenna's Start Transmission action in control groups. * Added ability to register credit for Kerbal experience gains in the MPL * When a Kerbal plants a flag, credit is given to all landed/splashed Kerbals in physics range. Prevents the need to have flag-planting parties with large crews. * Made celestial bodies rotate in the R&D archives again * Updated in flight Pause Menu to include Load, Save and Exit options * Updated in flight quickloads to show more detailed load dialog * Fix CBAttributeMapSO (biome detection) to use only nearby biomes as candidates, not all biomes. * Fix for vessels not retaining targets on quickload * Fix for targeting hanging up in limbo state when reverting to launch * Fix for losing targeting when switching vessels (such as when docking) * Targeting properly restores for individual parts (i.e. docking ports) during quickload and vessel switching * Fix for Tracking station list deselcting active vessel on list changes * Fix for Map filter hiding the current and/or targetted vessel * Fix an issue with stars fading in/out instantly. * Add lift and drag displays back to wings/control surfaces. * Fix some EVA state issues not updating correctly, leading to kerbals getting stuck 'floating'. * Retractable landing gear produce less drag than they used to when retracted and much more when extended. * Enable staging toggling on fairings. * Fix ModuleSAS in standalone mode using real time not game time for resource requests. * Properly format facility name in editor exit dialog. * Stopping near things no longer keeps EVA interaction messages open in map. * Corrected usage of the word "topology" in ScienceDefs. * Settings screen does not actually set the resolution unless the resolution actually changes. * Mark 2 docking port given the same tooltips as other docking ports. * World First speed, distance, and altitude records can no longer be set while in a prelaunch state. * Fix engineer report entries not updating when their icons change. * Fix Skywinder stock vessel having no description. * Fix typos in stock "SatelliteLauncher" craft file. * Fix early game progression cheat not unlocking the science progress node. * Manufacturer added to mystery goo. * Part search now splits search terms on dashes, fixing searches for several engine designations, and things like "Convert-O-Tron". * Version text made more visible in experimental builds. * Using curly braces in a vessel name no longer obliterates the universe. * Resource scanners now show "0%" rather than "Unknown" if the area is known, but the resource abundance is super low. * Remove roll torque on docking ports (by default). * Fix pod lights not being in Lights action group by default. * Fix some zeroed attachment vectors on parts leading to log spam. * Fix drag from struts and fuel lines. * Vessel G-force is now reported correctly when on rails. * Fix issue with ModuleDeployablePart (and solar panels, which derive from it) always reporting multiple drag cubes even when the animation isn't the panel's and it doesn't track the sun. * Fix long-standing bug with FlightLogger not logging Gs right. * Fix missing manufacturer for Mystery Goo. * Ion engine now has resource bars, and will leave a tiny bit of EC remaining when drawing EC so the vessel can still be controlled. * Fix issue with ladder tests in Engineer's Report. * Fix explosions moving with vessel. * Fix issue with command seat and docking port joints. * Fix vessel counts in vessel type filters. * Fix shielded docking ports to not be stageable. * Fix issue where parts would play their staging FX on load, not just on staging. * Fix an issue with zero drag area breaking physics. * Deactivate Lab if it is activated and no scientists are present. * Improve stars' fade-in-fade-out during dawn and dusk. * Fix issue where loading an unloaded vessel with a converter will lead to it not processing all ore. * Default to not logging (to flight logger or to the log file) when engine exhaust heats a part. * Show negative funds and negative altitudes (depth) by turning the widget red. * Fix issue with screen rotating when KSP is not the active application. * Ignore launch clamps when getting craft size for facility checks. * Fix CoP/CoL on two fins being off. * When finding first vessel control source, require crewed parts to also have the command module on them before they are valid candidates. * IVA radar altitude gauge shows height from seabed when underwater. * Fix initial rotation of LT-1 and LT-2 landing legs. * Don't allow docking port shields to be closed while docked. * RCS thrust forces array properly zeroed when RCS is not firing. * Fix Offset Gizmo issue for surface mounted parts with colliders that don't cover the entire visual model (like the LY-01). They will no longer jump when an offset is attempted. * Fix vessels/kerbals landed on other vessels teleporting to the ground on load. * Fix issue with a kerbal targeting a vessel and boarding it leading to maneuver node functionality being broken. * Fix wrong vessel being made dominant during docking if the docking is so fast as to skip the acquire phase. * Fix Aero FX being improperly applied to some explosion FX causing square particles and slowdown. * Fix planet orbits sometimes not responding to clicks (or responding when clicked off-orbit). * Empty science containers (or containers with limited capacity) may show experiment count/capacity. * Fix problems with sliding maneuver nodes. * Fix landing legs exploding when landing on Gilly. * Fix handling of mouse interaction with solar escape trajectories (for maneuver node placement). * Fix bad things happening when quickloading while warping. * Fix IVA overlay button not always responding. * Fix offset target markers when more than 200m away. * Tweaks to wheel autoboost to help with wheels. * Increased allowable gizmo offset when holding SHIFT. * Fix bug when transferring fuel from an empty to an empty tank (causing the universe to come unglued). * Added highlighter brightness factor to game settings. * Added settingsload and settingssave commands to debug console. * Added highlighter colors to settings.cfg so they can be edited as well. * Added in flight UI for highlighter setting. * Add Mouselook mapping to settings screen. * Add shielding status to parts. * Add Lights to MPL. * Fix occlusion shielding radius values for Cargo Bays. * Add version stamps to save files for version save created in and version last saved in. * Fix issue with WarpTo orbit jumping. * Add "Always show closest approach for target" markers option. * Fix AppLauncher not having global scale applied. +++Moddability API Docs: https://kerbalspaceprogram.com/api/index.html * Added FlightGlobals.VesselsLoaded and FlightGlobals.VesselsUnloaded which lets us iterate over a specific portion of Vessels without checking the entire list. * Added onVesselPartCountChanged event, fires any time a part is added or removed, the moment it happens, unlike onVesselModified. * Added onVesselStandardModification event, collects various vessel events and fires them off with a single one. (onVesselPartCountChanged, onVesselModified, docked, undocked, et al) * Added onScreenResolutionModified event, fires when the screen resolution is modified. * Added many accessors/setters. * Vessel control level can be clamped to a field in Vessel (so can be restricted to Partial even if otherwise would be Full). * GetModuleMass/Cost methods can now be passed the situation. * Fix where kerbal mass (if set to nonzero) was not applied in the editor. * Added two new dictionary-related classes (DictionaryValueList and ListDictionary). * Celestial bodies now cache all of their PQS Cities. * All game root nodes now generate a random persistent seed, which is different from game to game. * All forces on valid parts except wheel forces are now done via Part.AddForce/Torque/AddForceAtPosition. Note that the forcemode used is Force; to use a different forcemode, convert the force to the correct amount. It is the job of the Flight Integrator to then apply all these forces to actual rigidbodies (rather than all the disparate modules' job). * Use mass-weighted average angular velocity of parts for vessel angular velocity. * ITorqueProvider now reports two Vector3s, positive torque (that produced by control actuation 1,1,1) and negative torque (that produced by -1,-1,-1). * Added various accessors. * Node definitions can take an extra digit after size, either 0 or 1: that sets whether the node can crossfeed. Defaults to 1 (yes). NODE definitions can take crossfeed = True/False * ModuleEngines now supports `clampPropReceived = True`. This will clamp the ratio of propellant requested based on prior results, so if IntakeAir is listed first and less than the full requirement is returned, it will request only that ratio of further propellants. In this case the "Prop Req Met" display will show the minimum requirement-met ratio rather than the average. Engines that use IntakeAir (or other cases like that) need to have `clampPropReceived = True` in each of their MODULEs that do that, and need to have that PROPELLANT first and the other PROPELLANTs later. See stock jet cfgs for examples. * Added another crew transfer event. * Added more startup options for KSPAddon * Allow kerbals to have/save/load arbitrary experience points. * ResearchAndDevelopment.GetTechnologyTitle(string id) will convert a tech ID to a tech title and is available as soon as parts start loading (can be used in GetInfo() ). * Support max pressure (dynamic + static), `maxPressure`, and max G, `gTolerance`, for parts. * Added system to allow mods to add custom difficulty settings. * Added CelestialBody.hasSurface so mods that add a PQSController to gas giant don't cause silly things such as "Plant a flag on Jool" contracts. * Replaced all checks for experience traits (Pilot, Scientist, Engineer) with individual experience effects. They are now loaded before part loading so can be queried in GetInfo(). * Icons in TechTree.cfg can now use a relative path (allows mod icons to live outside the Squad directory). * Added KSPAssemblyDependencyEqualMajor as an attribute. Use instead of KSPAssemblyDependency if you want to force requiring the stated major version, not >= the major version, from your dependency. * If you are setting a vessel's position and/or changing its orbit, call Vessel.IgnoreGForces(framecount) on the vessel for the number of frames that g forces should be ignored (try 1, then 2 if that doesn't work, etc). * ModuleDeployablePart (covers antennas, solars, radiators) also has a gResistance (for Gs) as well as windResistance (for Q). * Crew transfer now derives from a generic abstract PartItemTransfer class. Classes can derive from it to implement any kind of (crew transfer-style) part-part transfer. Also we fire an event right before a crew transfer is created so mods can just kill it and easily create their own CrewTransfer-derived class and have that be called on that event. * Extended ModuleScienceContainer to allow sending and, (from ModuleScienceExperiment) receiving, experiment data. Also added support for a Collect All option to such containers. * ModuleColorChanger supports changing arbitrary shader colors and implements IScalarModule. ModuleAnimationSetter works similarly and is used to more directly link an animation to being set by IScalarModule. * PartModules now support upgrades. In a MODULE node, add an UPGRADE node. Inside that add one node per techID you wish to provide upgrades, in ascending order. Inside that place keys and nodes you wish to upgrade. e.g. `UPGRADES { basicRocketry { maxThrust = 250 } }` will change maxThrust to 250 once basicRocketry unlocks. Upgrades will never override persistent data. Further, by default they overwrite each other; to make a node apply on a clean slate (so you can, say, add two PROPELLANT nodes and not have them conflict due to the overwrite logic) set `IsExclusiveUpgrade__ = True` in the upgrade's node. That will clear the upgrade state and apply that upgrade fresh. Upgrades are applied only when you add a part to a craft in the VAB/SPH, they don't magically apply in flight.

  2. Hello, i have over 30 mods that need updating using ckan. When i try and tick the update box (even 1 mod at a time) and then proceed, it gets to the end of the update load and then says unhandled exception or a different mod it will say it looks like the mod i'm trying to install conflicts with a mod that has already been installed??? i don't understand, i'm just updating it. other times it wll say unhandled exception and still fail? any help would be appreciated. here's the details...

  3. Hey there! I haven't been playing ksp for a while now, but in the meanwhile, I came up with an, in my opinion, good idea! Currently Ksp offers you a bunch of planets, on which you can land on and visit different biomes, to get more science. And thats pretty much all you can do with planets... In my opinion kinda boring . So my suggestion would be to make planets more interactive, and therefore much more interesting. As you may know, rocks are not solid. You can walk through them... But this is just one thing that bothers me. In my opinion planets also look a little bit boring. The textures are bad and surfaces can be either solid or fluid only. There isn't any kind of action on these planets. I mean, imagine big dusty storms on Duna! Or Geysirs on Jools moons! Just these little details would make the game so much more awesome! What do you think guys? I'd love to hear your opinion! Thank you very much!
  4. KerbalEdu Updated It has again been over 6 months since our last newsletter and our latest update to KerbalEdu. The reason for this delay is that we have again been busy. We have been developing our analytics and store ecosystem, and our own game. But now it is time to release another update for KerbalEdu! KerbalEdu version 1.2.2e801 KerbalEdu has now been updated to 1.2.2e801. The biggest feature in this update is that we are again bringing KerbalEdu up to date with the latest version of the base game. Where the last version was based on 1.1.3 we are now based on the latest version, 1.2.2. As always no feature from the base game has been left out. Everything in KSP 1.2.2 is now also in KerbalEdu. You can check the changes in the base game between 1.1.3 and 1.2.2 from the version history. We have again not had much time to make updates to the edu features further than to make them all correctly work with 1.2.2. However we did have time to do these: Fixed restart problems in the first part of EHC 1 mission, and other EHC mission bugs. Included new EHC missions in the KerbalEdu installation (as Downloaded Missions). Windows installer changed to a .msi installer instead of .exe to better enable distributed installations. Various small bugfixes If you own KerbalEdu, you can download the new version by logging in at https://kerbalspaceprogram.com/kspstore/. Note: The Earth History Campaign missions downloadable from kerbaledu.com have also been updated to work with the latest version. They may no longer work with earlier versions. If you want to buy KerbalEdu you can get it at the TeacherGaming Store. You can also buy other cool and educational games there. For more information about KerbalEdu visit http://kerbaledu.com. We are also developing an entire ecosystem based around educational games, and even one game of our own. Check them out at teachergaming.com.
  5. After the update Squad intends to release on Console, will there be updates that release around the same time PC gets them but for console? In other words, will updates appear around the same time for all platfroms?
  6. Was there an update at all between 1-17-17 and 1-19-17? I had been repeatedly doing kerbin orbit tourist contracts and could continually complete them, first try, at least 5 times in a row. Today I attempted to do a kerbin orbit tourist contract with the exact same ship and could not achieve 70k ap-70k pap orbit. I tried multiple times and ran out of fuel every time BEFORE hitting orbit, not even enough fuel to de orbit. whats going on? Additional info: Was using reliant initial stage, terrier second stage. In an attempt to be extremely cost efficient I was using just enough fuel tanks to achieve orbit and de orbit. With consecutive failures today I tried switching over to thud x2 on initial stage for greater ISP at sea level to no avail. In all humility it may be my flying but I was pretty consistent at hitting orbit with this same ship. I don't know what could have changed in my flying style to restrict me from hitting orbit.
  7. I read something that the developer gave up or doesn't have the time. It was personally my favorite mod but there are so many bugs now. I actually haven't even used it in the newest update so I don't know if it works. Also the petal adapter doesn't work which is a key part when making apollo style rockets. And the engines don't make sounds for me, or at least they are really, really quite compared to the vanilla engines. Anyone know anything on whether it will ever update?
  8. Title pretty much describes it. My steam client autoupdated ksp to 1.2.2, but I am getting impatient waiting for certain mods to be updated for 1.2.2, so can someone give me a brief rundown on how to get 1.2.1 back? I tried going under the steam properties and opting out of the auto updates and such, but this happened after the 1.2.2 update was already downloaded and installed. Thank you
  9. Hello fellow Kerbonauts! I'm here to suggest a new and improved versions of the Career Mode in this game. I'll get right to it. I'll list off the things which I feel need to be improved/removed/added. "-" = Remove "+" = Add "/" = Update + A monthly fund increase. For example, every month/week whatever, KSC will give you a set amount of funds to you that can be changed in the options menu. Doing this will make the game a little bit more bearable when you're the type of person to build big rockets, or playing on harder difficulties. / Change the penalty for asking for a government fund. There are certain instances when the player might run out of money, and will need to use the strategy that grants you an amount of funds based on the percentage bar. However, the penalty for this is extremely high, and if it was toned down by about 15-25%, it wouldn't make it overpowered, but it would make it much less of a pain. + Loans. The player can ask for a loan. There can be four different options on the loans; 50,000 Funds, 500,000 Funds, 1Mil Funds, and "Custom" where you can choose an amount of funds between 0 and 5Mil. The player will have to repay the fund before a certain deadline, and will have to pay interest. For example, you take the 50,000 loan, you will have to pay 10% interest every month (5000 a month). If the player fails to pay back the loan, the player will get hit with a massive reputation penalty. / Balance the price tags of the different parts. Since the loans feature as well as the monthly fund increase are a thing in this hypothetical update, the price tags for parts may need to be increased/decreased respectively. I'm not gonna pay an absurd amount of money for something I could go to my nearest DIY store and make the same thing myself for much less. I know it's a game, but some things really need to make a little bit more sense. + Statistics. A trend graph depicting where funds are going to/where they're coming from. For example, I'd like to know why I just lost about 500,000 in a couple of months. I could go to the statistics graph in the administration building, and notice that 500,000 was spent on snacks. (I'm joking, but I'm assuming you know what I mean :P). I'd also like to know how much money is coming in, and see if in the end my reusable rocket strategy is either making me earn back money, or lose it. Speaking of strategies.... +/- Strategies. This is a bit of a different from my previous suggestions because I'm implying that the strategies be both improved upon (adding more) balanced, and removed. While I don't have a concrete idea of what could be added here, but I'd like to see some actual strategies involved. I'll expand on this a little bit in my next suggestion. + A simplified version of competition and alliances. For example, say WinterOwl is doing better than I am. They're getting most of the funds that are circling around this small economy. Therefore I want them to stop doing so well, and will activate a strategy that will make them lose money, and make me earn more. These strategies work very closely with the strategies that we have now, as if we do this, it'll be seen as an amazing person-ish move on our side, so we will lose reputation for it. In this hypothetical update, let's also assume I'd like to help or collaborate with another company that's doing poorly. I can choose to activate a strategy that will make me lose some funds, but add reputation. It's really simple, but could make the gameplay more interesting. - Remove the old strategies. All of them. I will expand on this on my next suggestion. + Budgeting. If we go to the administration building, there can be a budgeting tab. In that tab, I can choose to either put more money into R&D, reputation, or invest it into something, with an interest rate. If I put it into R&D, I will lose the set amount of funds that I am putting into it, but will research techs quicker (I am actually gonna suggest something later on to expand on this). If I invest it into Reputation, my money will go to creating propa- *ahem* motivational rallies showing the greatness of our space program, creating reputation. If I choose to invest into some company or the government, I will earn a small amount of interest on the amount I put in, making me slowly earn more funds. This will all be handled in a screen in the administration building, where there will be 3 sliders, and I can divide them equally in percentages (i.e I have 100% I can use, I invest 40% Into R&D, 20% into reputation, and 40% into the investment. I feel this will work well with the statistics feature. Strategies will still be a thing with the competition and alliances features. + Allow you to filter contracts by companies. + Researching costs funds. Kerbonaut hiring is a set price along with monthly payments (for every month in action you have to pay them, if you fail to pay them the Kerbonaut will start to become unhappy, and loses XP points temporarily until the player has enough funds to pay them. This shouldn't be a problem.) + Recovering costs funds depending how far away something is. It can be set at ____Funds/KM or something. It also takes time. (Will be explained later) That's all I have for career mode updates, if you'd like to suggest anything, go ahead and do it, I'd welcome them. However before I finish this post I'd like to suggest a little extra something. I'm sure many of you have heard of the Kerbal Construction Time mod. It's a mod where rockets take time to build, buildings take time to upgrade, launchpads need to be refurbished, buildings take time to be repaired, and tech requires time to be researched. I suggest it's implemented into the base game. This will work well with the hypothetical features that have been suggested in this post. If you've got this far, I thank you for reading, and as mentioned suggestions are welcome. If you agree that this should be a thing, please encourage Squad to add it Sincerely, Stelum
  10. I have an older tv that can't adjust aspect ratio so the only way I can't cant tell is issue is by changing the aspect ratio of the HUD in game, there's only UI scale which doesn't help, and there's no visible aspect ratio settings anywhere! Help or please add, I really would like to play this game.
  11. Mabye there could be like an update entirely focused on underwater exploration? mabye make it so normal engines don't work underwater so you have to use propellers, under water caves to discover? and mabye lots more?
  12. Gama pod mk3 update 4--1.3 Fixed iva errors. Improved external part. And some other errors. It's cool to have finally got this up and running.
  13. Solved: So the update was a Steam update, and that somehow corrupted some drivers for the graphics card. I realized that after trying a few other games and seeing them fail to launch too (including non-steam games). The specific problem was "Failure to Initialize Direct3D" which I learned when the Hearthstone error message actually specified the exact issue (steam crashes didn't for some reason). The issue was fixed by running windows troubleshooter to fix the corrupted files and restarting the computer when prompted. Posting this because nothing is worse than coming to a forum to find a solution to a problem and seeing something like "NVM I solved it, thread closed" and there being ZERO explanation as to how to fix the problem. Seriously that is the WORST. STOP DOING THAT. Last night (11/04/16) when launching KSP steam preformed a very short update that I assume was just some minor tweaks and whatnot. After this however, whenever I try to launch the game it immediately crashes. To be clear I had no issues launching the game after the "Loud and Clear" update, only after this small tweak last night (haven't played in a couple weeks so not sure which day it came out). Reverting to previous version only shows the last major update (w/out loud and clear). I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game a few times and that hasn't fixed the issue so I'm kinda at a loss. Here is the error it spits out
  14. I am curious. I have had KSP on steam since version .21 came out. each and every update it updates. until now. I have: Keep KSP Up To Date checked and both my steam launcher and desktop shortcuts launched 1.1.3. what in the actual what is going on.
  15. Hi there, i dont know if i'm allowed to link to Reddit over here but i am creating ( with the help of the community ) a big list of updated mods for KSP 1.2. You can find it over at Reddit - https://www.reddit.com/r/KerbalSpaceProgram/comments/574puy/the_big_list_of_updated_mods_for_ksp_12/ So please feel free to comment and add to it !
  16. This post is created so me and other people can be up to date with recent updates and news, for the Xbox and ps4 consoles. Main reason I created it is so I can finally know when cheats come out, if they ever will.
  17. Currently in the new Devnotes Thursday, there is a debate going on about the addition of life support to stock. There are some very good points, and if you want to check it out, go ahead. But this is about that too. I have one question to ask. Should Life Support be stock?
  18. A super quick overview of 1.2. Here's a list of sources, notes, and the script! And here are all the videos I've seen / linked to from there: GrunfWorks' comparison of CommNet & RemoteTech Matt Lowne's Definitive Preview Hazard-ish's Ultimate Preview Billy Winn Jr's Preview Scott Manley's Preview If you have seen more, let me know so I can watch them as well (and link to them)!
  19. With version 1.2 just around the corner, I've been given early access to show you everything you could want to know about the upcoming content! Enjoy and let the hype continue!
  20. KSP Version: Version 1.1.3 , patched via patcher today at 22:39 CET, OS: Windows 7 64-bit What Happens: Cannot purchase nor place researched parts Mods / Add-Ons: All Stock Steps to Replicate: 1) Start a new game 2) purchase the parts at the R&D Centre 3) go to construct first rocket 4) newly purchased parts still need to be purchased at R&D centre 5) Also cannot place a normal rocket engine underneath the first tank properly, doesn't snap into place, only upside down... Result: Literally cannot play the game this way, can't build anything
  21. Well this is interesting. After blowing most of my budget a few days ago to recreate the moon landing (yup forgot I was in carrer mode lol) I went back to the daily grind of exploding kerbals where no kerbals had sploded before! (or not that much anyway, and PROVING that if we can send Kerbals to the Mun then Apollo could still be faked or something like that lol). I had contracts set aside for a space station in Kerbin orbit that required a tourist which was different. So I built and orbited the station as there were no tourists to fire off. I came back today and all of my contracts had disappeared including the station one but I now had a tourist in the roster. I thought I had screwed up on the expiration but some of the contracts were open ended ie visit Duna Ike etc and other were not even 24 hours since being selected. So I shouldn't have lost any due to exceeding the expiration date. So I selected new contracts and went to the VAB and the contracts were gone. I had selected a LKO rescue and while the contract was gone the kerbal was in orbit. I figured I would do the rescue and see what happened. I got the kerbal but didn't get any credit or notifications ie in quarantine, new member etc etc. I also noticed that the engines were not cutting off. I use mechjeb to control the burns. I plot them and tweak then hit execute. It makes things easy without being overly dependent on mechjeb. So for the engine burns for rendezvous the engines would burn down to 0m/s indicated normally then continue to burn until I manually cut them off. The other strange part was I didn't see any real change in the orbits from the extended burns. Not that I let them go too far. So I am curious if anyone else is seeing this or has. I am running 1.1.3x64 on a win10 machine. There have been no updates for a few weeks and the parts I have been using have been in there for a while. The game has for me been fairly solid and glitch free for quite a while until now. Anyway before I start uninstalling mods etc I was hoping someone might have encountered this one before and has a idea of how to stamp it out. TNX Dave
  22. Pretty much what the title says. It's broadcasting its findings via @MuffinWatcher to #KSPModUpdated. The bot checks for updates every 15 minutes. It uses CKAN internally so it'll only see updates for CKAN-enabled mods.
  23. Hello, My steam client is not updating my game to 1.1.2. My game remains in 1.1.0. I have selected to opt-in the beta. But it just doesn't update it. I played with 1.1.0 a lot. And my mods are having problems because of this.. How can I make Steam to update my game? Please help me! My circle is dead, there's something wrong...
