Having problems / questions? There's a WIKI! With explanations, troubleshooting, and... well nothing much really.

INCOMPATIBLE WITH:

Mod Effect
FAR Control surfaces won't fail
Procedural Parts Procedural tanks are not recognized

 

 

 

What is this?

 

It is a mod that will cause the parts on your ship to fail randomly, and you will need to repair them before you can use them again. Be careful... some failures might be relatively harmless, but others might seriously ruin your day. The more you use a part, the less reliable it will become: so don't be too throttle happy with those mainsails!

This mod requires Module Manager to function: it will also target ANY part mod that you have installed. (As long as some conditions are respected)

My thanks to @Coffeeman, who graciously gave me permission to merge his Entropy addon into this mod.  The original thread for Entropy is here: 

What's changed in the latest update?

0.7.2

  •     Updated ModuleManager to 2.7.3
  •     Updated WheelMotor.cfg & Wheeltire.cfg, changed ModuleWheel to ModuleWheelBase
  •     Added WheelMotor
  •     Added WheelTire
  •     Fixed glow to work even when going EVA
  •     Added ability to enable or disable failure mode for each type of module
  •     Fixed bug where switching to vessel in flight wouldn't properly initialize the popup buttons
  •     Updated the Radial bay to only allow access if it is opens
  •     Added spare parts to cargo bays
  •     Added code so that any cargo bay with parts will have to be open before accessing the parts
  •     Added DeployableAntenna
  •     Removed requirement for the Community Resource Pack, but is still compatible with it
  •     Following are from Entropy, originally by @Coffeeman 
  •         Added Parachutes
  •         Added Motors (Animations)
  •         Added Generators
  •         Added Solar Panels
  •         Added SRBs

0.7.0

  • Compatible with KSP 1.2.1 
  • Added config file for the Snacks! parts

 

Unfortunately at this point nothing is refunded for having bought upgrades to Kerbal Experience. Sorry! (You can hack your funds up, it's ok, you have my permission  )

The original mod was written by @Ippo

A large amount of work was done by @Coffeeman

Page is under construction, I fixed that.  As you can tell, it was mostly a copy/paste for now

At work today I was contemplating asking you if you could update this. I got home to find out you are planning too. You truly are 'da real MVP'. Will you include entropy too?

YES! I have had my eye on this since 1.0.5. Didn't get the chance to try it before updating to 1.1. I never thought it was going to be updated. Thanks so much.

Edit: How exactly do you download this? The manual installation link leads you to the wiki page. Clicking the 'code' button at the top of the github page takes you to an older version. Thanks.

Will this be able to target any part from any mod? 

Specifically I'm hoping it can target the mechjeb module. That would be fun.

Ha, I never played with one of these mods. Seems fun!

Reading the wiki, I noticed parts can fail more frequently when temperature is high. What about electronics and fuel-related hardware failing at extremely low temperatures, too?

Boy, you are really a glutton for punishment.

Assuming I can solve a license issue, I'll probably be merging Entropy into DangIt sometime in the future, and will then have options to be able to specify which, if any, module groups can and cannot have failures

Ummm, define "low" temperatures.  I don't know how cold things get in the game, not sure if it's worth it.

Fyi, once the release is stable, I'll be merging in the code from Entropy, which was an addon written by @coffeeman.

unacceptable!

Also, the spacedock forum link links to the middle of the thread.

p.s.

ty

edit: MM is outdated.

Edit2: Now that antenna no longer use animate generic, you could probably make the new module deployable antenna fail,no?

Also, I would be tempted to add in checks for crew capacity to the ModuleLight & ModuleReactionWheel patches.

Lastly, the spareparts patch still seems to do the weird cost setting behavior.

Double lastly: ModuleWheel is now ModuleWheelBase.

You also seem to be missing the spare parts container by Daishi (one of the universal storage guys).

Thanks again for doing this.:)
