Land a launchpad on the Mun. To launch a new ship from it, instead of clicking "Launch", click "Save", go to the Mün launchpad in the space center, and click "Load ship" and load the ship you just made.

No, i got not a build ship for build a launchpad on the Mun. You do not understand.

Do you mean you need to know how to build an ship with the launchpad on it so you can deliver it to the moon?

Should not be to hard...granted the Launchpad is big, but its not very heavy. If you can land a 2man lander on the Mun you should be able to set this thing down with little to no mucking about.

Is this compatible with kethane 0.5 when the resource mode is off or is it just incompatible?

It feels like I've tried everything and the Kethane drills just wont deploy...

This will currently only work with the drills from Kethane 0.4. I am in the process of updating it to work with 0.5.

Excellent work with this mod. Thanks to Firesplitter boyancy things, I was able to create a floating launch pad.

Only one problem, if I use Spaceplane pad, the ships that I can load are the same as if I use the VAB pad (I think it only load crafts from VAB folder). It is just me or it happens to anyone more?

Hey there, nice mod. I'm about to give it a test drive!

Just to let you know you're missing a License and Source file in the upload. The mods can get a bit jumpy if you don't have those, and us plugin devs love to see how you've done little tricks to pull appart and learn from because we're scabby like that.

Time to put a launch pad on the mun!

Yeah I've tried it with 0.4.4

Or does it actually only work with 0.4 ?

It definitely works with 0.4.3, and should work with 0.4.4.

Just to ask the obvious question, if I leave the

debug = true

Then I can use any version of Kethane I want?

Once you get your mod working with either .5 or .6.. then I can turn

debug = false

and then I will get the 'fully functional' version.

That is correct.

That is correct.

If we turn the debug mode off to go into your resource mode, will it automatically spawn metal to mine, or would we need to re-create a new save file? I have next to no idea how KSP saves these things...

The modified Kethane plugin should make new deposits, both of Kethane and Ore. Note that this will change the locations of Kethane deposits, so if you already have a mining colony there may not me a deposit there anymore.

Is the launchpad the final design? Its sorta ugly :)

GREAT MOD!

The launchpad is a placeholder model. Also, 0.20 seems to have broken my textures.

After a bit more testing it seems the mobile Launchpad is absolutely no different then the KSC Launchpad. I put the mobile pad on tracks (like in OP pic) just to test what it could handle. Just fired off my HLV lifter...a 300+ part lift vehicle I use to put anything upto 160 tons into LKO. And it fired flawlessly, whats more is the Launchpad vehicle was not damaged and able to go on.

Amazing!

OH MY GOD!!! I have been looking so long for this mod! Finally, no more 2 hour IRL wait times to send a fuel pod to Laythe! Thank you!

:D

Squad should hire you! Or at least buy off the code from you...
