  1. I've been messing about with this for a while now, it's brilliant! I've made graceful shuttle launch scripts, automated hovering scripts..... I'm just wondering if there is much development going on with it now? The current system seems to work really well but just a few additions would allow people to attempt a much larger variety of scripts. I mean thrust/weight information, surface velocity vector (not just scalar), and RCS control. Any plans for any of that in the future? Thanks.
  2. This mod looks incredible, and I'm really looking forward to making my own library of autopiloting scripts, but I'm having problems installing the Python client. I downloaded the server plugin, but when I entered "C:\Python34\Scripts\pip.exe install krpc" in the windows Command Prompt it started downloading/unpacking it but then returned an error: pip.exceptions.InstallationError: Command python egg_info failed with error code 1 in C:\Users\Tom\AppData\Local\Temp\pip_build_Tom\protobuf I would love to be able to start using this mod so any suggestions of what I've done wrong would be greatly appreciated!
  3. Hi everyone, I'm a physics undergrad who is interested in scientific computing, but only has fairly limited experience coding things in C. I was wondering how hard it would be to use a KSP plugin to practice the application of numerical methods and scientific computing by making autopilot programs similar to MechJeb. For example, the ultimate aim might be to make a script that would work out an optimized launch trajectory and then execute it, perhaps while also outputting telemetry to be viewed in an external application. I have messed about with KOS for a while, but I can't help but feel that if I am going to spend a fair amount of time working on a project like this it might as well be in a language with real-world applicability like C#. I would have no problems with using MechJeb or other mods' source code to get me started, I wouldn't be planning to distribute my creations anyway as it's just supposed to be a personal project. Any thoughts on the feasibility of this?
