KerbPaint - Part Painting
Download (Updated September 23rd) (source)
KerbPaint is a shader replacement addon that adds alternate versions of all of KSP's builtin shaders designed to permit recoloring of select parts.
Painting is accomplished by the use of the "P" Key to both select and highlight parts for painting, then tuning the paint colors and layers using the interface.
I love screenshots. They are what fuel me and get me through my day. Please share screenshots of your painted crafts!
At the moment there is support for all stock fuel tanks, several command pods and most stock aero surfaces. While authoring new paint masks is fairly quick, the shear volume of them makes the process of complete support fairly daunting, but expect constant paint and .cfg updates with this mod until stock support is complete.
Because of Module Manager, it does not break compatibility with anything (Except probably Universe Replacer)
Adding/removing this mod should not break any save files or affect save compatibility. It does not add or require any parts.
Fixed DYJ PWings support
Added "Specific" Config option
Added "DeepReplace" Config option
Added tutorial to the Imgur Gallery
Previously unpaintable Aero-surfaces have been corrected
Some work on making fairings paintable, still having issues :'(
Broke Aero surfaces to fix a bug with SRB particles
Managed to fix Aero and solve bug, but broke DYJ PWings
After hammering it for a while, not having any luck fixing Pwings, disabled for release
Integrated Stretchy Tanks
Didn't end up deriving the paintmask, did it blindly, so no license issue with distributing the integration (It would have been CC-Atr-Sharealike anyways, so not a big deal)
Had to write a special handler for Stretchy tank texture swaps, added StretchyFix field to ModulePaintable
Still working out how to best override materials, fairings working but not displaying properly
I swear I'll get PWings working for a release not not break it before build eventually
September 16th B
All Aero surfaces done
Three more pods added
Solar panels added
Inline docking port added
21+ new parts supported
September 23rd (A little sooner if you downloaded during the forum outage)
40+ new parts supported
All Spaceplane Cockpits
All Spaceplane fuselages
Some Fairing support (Still misbehaving)
Rewrote material access and shader caching
No more disk access for each part
Materials don't leak (For the most part)
DYJ's Procedural Wings Working (Whoo)
Menu pops up at odd times during flight if not closed in VAB. Stays closed once closed though. - Partial fix
Loading vehicles in VAB may misapply paint or shaders when loading a whole craft, only in VAB, it all works after launch. - Mostly fixed, lurking edge cases
Rarely propulsion particles may be broken, I'm a bit confused as to why, if anyone finds a consistent reproduce please share.
Finish adding support for stock parts - 98% Done!
Fairings! Fairings are the major element that stand out at the moment as out of place - 50% Done! Works in VAB, not sure why failing in flight
More mod support (Suggestions for mods to integrate?)
Implemented: PWings, Stretchy Tanks
Next: KW Rocketry
Contents of the folder go into GameData, so that your structure should look like .../GameData/KerbPaint/Plugins/PluginData/KerbPaint/
Paint masks live inside the KerbPaint plugin data folder as "_Paint" files. They are actually png images, however to prevent KSP from loading the images outside the plugin they have been stripped of extension.
Additional configs can be placed inside the GameData/KerbPaint/Plugins folder to add custom paint masks, a description of the process is inside the stock config
Makes use of ModuleManager
Paint masks for default parts have limited distribution terms as they are derived from stock parts, though I welcome distribution of additional cfgs and masks, just not these.
This means: do not distribute the provided paint masks outside of this forum, if modifying the masks provide clear origin.
Paint masks for mods use textures derived from other mods and are thus subject to additional terms.
Procedural Wings Paints derived with permission from DYJ
Stretchy Tanks Textures done blindly (It happened to work)
At the moment the source is provided only by necessity, and is not to be used beyond learning purposes. This is may change.
This mod is released, for the time being, for no external distribution or revision except where otherwise listed (The paint masks)
