  1. The idea a secret organization of modders exists is kinda silly really.
  2. @UomoCapra I have a couple of questions that I know you might not have an answer to, but will ask anyway: Will we still start with an empty solar system, requiring us to do the first few steps like walking on the Mun? Or will the starting point be after that? I think it should allow us to start from scratch. Are we getting full PBR support with the new engine? I really want to make my parts look shiny and nice. Any indication on default part diameters or at least, any plans to release that information before the game is out? I wouldn't mind getting to work on some parts right away!
  3. I haven't physically checked, but according to other modders, it should be fine.
  4. It should. Unless there were changes to animations or the way config files are built. Try it out and let me know what happens. If it needs a fix, I can take a look during the weekend.
  5. Then I'd guess the mod should still be working. I need to finish this at some point, but the motivation to play Kerbal hasn't been there. Game needs a big shakeup I think.
  6. Did anything change on the parts definition for 1.3.1? I haven't touched this game in a long time.
  7. Hey guys. Good to see there's still interest. I've been in a rut the past few months...got a mountain of debt that I have to pay. At least I got a job now, so that'll help. As far as the mod goes, I would like to work more on it, but I'm worried about the game. Latest news haven't been encouraging to say the least. But as soon as I have some time and motivation I'll finish what I promised before. And for 1.3, the only thing I use a plugin for is the texture switcher on the command module which is in a module manager config so even that isn't necessary. All compatibility with other mods is done via MM config files, so it should work, unless Squad changed something on part definitions that I'm not aware of.
  8. Thanks for the encouragement guys Means a lot. One thing I thought of was maybe starting a Patreon. But, I'm not sure what I could give you guys in return for the support. I would never put the mods themselves behind a paywall, cause that's just a douche move. I guess maybe my substances, but then if you guys don't have access to Substance Designer that becomes kinda moot, heh. @Kosmonaut, that's good to know about 1.2.2. I haven't played that myself yet, both due to mod versions and any gaming time I have lately I've been spending on Stellaris again. But don't hesitate to drop me a message here in case something does break or stops working. Usually it's a really quick fix since there are no plugins.
  9. I've been meaning to post something here, but I've been pretty busy lately. I'm in some financial trouble, so I'm trying to scrounge up whatever money I can. Economy here in Brazil is wrecking small business owners like me. Coupled with this, I've been having a bit of an existential crisis lately. You see, when I was 18, CG was actually what I wanted to do for a living. But, due to a lack of industry for that here and also no education, I ended up going with programming, which is something that I was relatively passionate about and figured I could do it as my career and leave CG as a hobby. Well, turns out I was wrong. When I picked the mod up again late last year, I really started to find a groove with things, and started to study a lot. And now I'm considering a career move to CG. But it's a bit of a long shot now especially at my age (I'm 30 now). Still, I ain't giving it up that easily The net result though is that I have been studying and trying to build a portfolio, but it's taking most of my spare time which leads me to neglecting the mod. All this said, I have no intention of dropping it at all. I have a mostly complete high resolution model for the engine. Gotta finish some details and do the low poly plus bake. The fuel tank needs a bit more work. I'm still not 100% happy with the details. And I have several sketches for other things. The smaller command pod I did could potentially be released with some fine tuning work. And I designed a satellite system that I think will be really cool once it's all done and working. On top of all that, although it's still not a priority for me, I think I have a design for the IVA for the Asimov pod. I'd like to tackle that at some point. Anyway, please bare with me. The money thing is the main culprit though. Gotta survive first and foremost As soon as I have some news, I'll let you guys know Cheers!
  10. Everything seems to be working fine now Finally I can have my lab working on all cylinders. Will make my career a lot easier.
  11. From what I tested, that should make everything work, as long as they don't go strike ever. I ran for about 1 Kerbin month without issues after rotating my scientists, so they were fresh and no habitation issues. But then my supplies ran out and they went into strike. After sending more supplies over, they got back to work, but then the issue started happening again.
  12. The save I logged on my github issue is producing the messages. Uses only stock and USI components. Check for the station in orbit of Kerbin. Here's the issue: https://github.com/BobPalmer/USI-LS/issues/162
  13. I have been a bit busy the past week or so, and will be for the next few days until at least Tuesday. But, I've been using whatever free time that comes up to keep working on things. Remember that new fuel tank I was working on? Yeah, so I scrapped that and did another: I'm not sure if this design is final. I like the holding pads, but they are spending quite a few polygons right now. I thought about using some cables instead...have to think about it. The material for the sphere isn't 100% either. Anyway, here are a couple of variations: I really like the look of carbon fiber for the tank, so that one will be included either way. Probably will do a texture switch deal to have both options. This will be on the next update for the Asimov. The great thing about it is that you can chain a couple of them to get an insane amount of delta-v at the expense of some pretty long burn times of course. With my standard build I get 3900 ΔV with one tank and about 5100 ΔV with two. More than enough for a trip to Duna and back as I wanted. The next release will also include either a new engine or a complete rework of the current one. I've been looking at it, and it needs some love. So next version will be released when it's done as I want to get these two parts right. I'll keep you guys updated.
  14. Hmmm...I tried this but wasn't able to reproduce the issue. It created a similar one though. While the scientists are doing their work fine, the guys I have in the hitchhiker produce a message of refusing to work upon returning to the station. I'm logging an issue on github anyway since I don't think that message should happen, but now I'm in doubt if the issue I'm having isn't just enough batteries. I have enough when flying the station but barely. Might be time to just build a new station.
  15. I'm having an odd issue, maybe someone has encountered this. I have a station orbiting the Mun with a science lab. I have enough supplies and electric charge to run the habitation and the lab with no problem. If I fly the station it produces science normally non stop. But as soon as I leave and advance the time it all stops working. When I fly it again, all kerbals say they refuse to work only to immediately get back to work again. Problem is that the lab stops producing science if habitation drops to zero. Is there something else that I should be doing?
