    [1.0.4] Deadly Reentry v7.2.2 update, July 24, 2015 (The Melificent Edition)

    Deadly Reentry 7.2.2, for KSP 1.0.4 - The Melificent Edition
    As of KSP 1.0.4, stock KSP has adopted a split temperature system where part temps are tracked separately for interior and exterior (skin). As a result of this change, the only code implementation in Deadly Reentry is for G-force damage to ship and crew. Fire damage is currently out but will be added back in.

    This update is by Starwaster.
    ialdabaoth (who is awesome) created Deadly Reentry 2, based on r4m0n's Deadly Reentry; this is a continuation. This continues NathanKell's work on Deadly Reentry continued, and he might contribute more at times.

    License remains CC-BY-SA as modified by ialdabaoth.
    Also included: Module Manager (by sarbian, swamp_ig, and ialdabaoth). See Module Manager thread for details and license and source:
    Module Manager is required for DREC to work.


    1. If you currently have Deadly Reentry installed, go to KSP/GameData/DeadlyReentry and delete everything (files and folders). Also delete any old versions of ModuleManager (modulemanager.dll for example) in your KSP/GameData folder.
    2. Extract this archive to your KSP/GameData folder
    3. If asked to overwrite ModularFlightIntegrator, use the most recent one. If you're not sure, overwrite.

    Be careful how you reenter. Make sure your craft has a heatshield (the Mk1 pod has a built-in heatshield, as do stock spaceplanes; the Mk1-2 needs a heat shield from the Structural tab). For a low Kerbin orbit reentry, try for a periapsis of about 20km. On Kerbin, do not deploy your parachute until speed has dropped below ~350m/s. (typically you should be at a safe velocity by the time you reach an altitude of 7km)
    Note: Deadly Reentry no longer interferes with chutes. Both stock chutes and Real Chutes have adopted their own implementations of punishing deployments at unsafe speeds. The above warning still applies except you don't get to blame Deadly Reentry about it.

    Awesome as always, Nathan :-D

    Aw, thanks!

    A note to anyone playing with Human-size Kerbin: setting temperature mult to 8 (instead of the stock 25) seemed to work just about right for me.

    Nice to see this being working on Nathan. If I wasn't already hitting the crash level of memory usage I'd give it a whirl.

    Great work!
    Accomplished with RT2, RSS, FAR, RealFuels:

    Thanks, folks.

    Ratzap, except for like a meg or two of parts, it shouldn't take any memory to speak of.

    I see your name, Nathan, on an awful lot of the best mods, do you ever get any time to actually play? Or eat?! Cheers for the hard work.

    Quick question - the global scalar for g-tolerance: set to 2.5, does this mean that all parts will explode at 2.5g's? Or is it a multiplier to some other property? How would I "turn off" g-induced damage?

    So, this is DR Continued, continued?
    Seeing a spacesuited astronaut standing on a platform on the end of the robot arm in space is a crystal-clear sign we live in the future.

    As an addendum to this question, have the g values changed significantly from the 2.3 version? I've only just started dipping my toes into DR and it seems wise to be aware of significant changes of that sort.

    Semi-related: re-entry effects are positively terrifying now and I love it.

    Play? Heh, not really, no. :]
    Eat, yes, at least. ^_^

    Yes, this is DRC^2.

    Regarding g-tolerance multiplier. Thus far I have not changed ialdabaoth's g tolerance formula, which is sqrt(6 * impact tolerance). The multiplier is just a global mult afterwards, so the formula is now gToleranceMult * sqrt(6*crashTolerance)

    Since gToleranceMult is now 2.5, they have indeed, the limits are 2.5x what they were. So you really needn't worry until, oh, 12-15Gs.

    I hope at some point to give parts rational G limits, even bearing in mind (see the old thread) that acceleration really isn't what we should be caring about per se, it's force on the part from all angles.
