We are always happy to see new contributors submitting code, and don't feel like you have to do it all by yourself. We're a very helpful team. If you're wondering why MacOS now defaults to the consoleui, it's because Apple have dropped support for 32-bit graphics, and our graphical ui uses the Winforms toolset which has not been ported to 64-bit, and likely never will. Discussions for a new UI using a more modern toolset are ongoing. The CKAN Discord has been very popular, and is certainly proving very useful for the Dev team. Feel free to hit us up there for questions, though the primary locations for Bug Reports and Metadata Issues remains GitHub. My Twitch streaming has been a bit off the air since moving my home office around. My microphone seems to have stopped working, and I need to sort it out, but I'll be back on sometime, playing KSP (usually fairly badly!). If anyone has questions about the CKAN client and how to make the best use of it, feel free to jump on my stream and ask, and I can demonstrate live! I am as always humbled and inordinately grateful for the excellent team we have working on the CKAN. @HebaruSan, @DasSkelett, @Olympic1, and the incomparable master of infrastructure @techman83 continue their fabulous work!
  2. Yeah, it would be nice if Squad could bump the priority of the splash screen display.
  3. Or even better, to have it operate with different SAS levels as the relevant tech nodes are unlocked.
  4. Unfortunately, we can't add the RO Patches pack to the CKAN repo the way it is set up at the moment. It is relying on overwriting the Tundra Exploration decals files, and the CKAN client will not overwrite one mod's files with another's. Is it possible to use a ModuleManager patch to use distinct files instead? Also, the AVC .version file for the patch is restricting it to just KSP 1.6.1. If there's no need to update the patches for future RO versions, it might be better to make the patch compatibility match the Tundra Exploration version it is suited for rather than the current RO. That way, if/when RO is updated to support 1.7.x, the patch won't need a compatibility version bump
  5. If KSP 2 is not going to be released for Linux, could some work be put into making it work smoothly on Proton? That should be a much smaller effort than maintaining a full Linux version.
  6. Will/does KSP2 require the same science grind from early rocketry, or will we start from a substantial tech base?
  7. Is there a reason to think the Tundra Exploration RO patches will need to be changed for future RO releases? I'm wondering whether the KSP1.6.1 compatibility note is inherent to the patches, or simply because RO is only supporting KSP 1.6.1?

This is used internally by CKAN when a new version is released. Windows users must have .NET 4.5 installed. Simply download the ckan.exe file and either store it in your game directory or somewhere in your filesystem where you have non-admin write access. Never run the CKAN client as Administrator! Mac/Linux/Mono users: please use the new cert-sync tool, to update mono's certificate store. Mac Users: You should only need to download and install the CKAN.dmg The .deb file is for automated installation on Debian-based Linux distributions - Use dpkg-install/apt-get/apt to install the .deb file and you will then be able to run CKAN with just ckan instead of mono ckan.exe. All required libraries should be pulled in as dependencies. This release of the CKAN has not been tested on Mono releases prior to 5.0.1. We highly recommend upgrading to the latest stable release of Mono from mono-project.com You will need the equivalent of the mono-complete package for your OS. Comments Welcome to new contributor jbrot, who is planning to create a new MacOS interface for the CKAN client! Mac users, it's worth paying attention to upcoming Pull Requests on our GitHub. Testers will be very welcome! We now have a CKAN Discord thanks to @Olympic1, which largely replaces the old IRC channels, since it does a better job of asynchronous communication. Feel free to hit us up there for questions, though the primary locations for Bug Reports and Metadata Issues remains GitHub. Speaking of asking questions, I've recently started streaming on Twitch, playing KSP (usually fairly badly!). If anyone has questions about the CKAN client and how to make the best use of it, feel free to jump on my stream and ask, and I can demonstrate live! I am humbled and inordinately grateful for the excellent team we have working on the CKAN these days. @HebaruSan, @DasSkelett, @Olympic1, and the incomparable master of infrastructure @techman83 are all doing fabulous work!
  10. If you're having troubles understanding how CKAN works, catch me on Twitch and I'll happily answer questions and demonstrate live -

     

  11. I've tried several times to use the scanning arms to complete a mission. I have a mission "Do a complex scan of a Mun Crater on the Mun". I get my rover to a Mun Crater, scan it with the right scanning arm, my experiment details appear, "Mun Crater Scan from the Mun's Midlands", I transmit it, no problems all goes through fine, but the contract still shows 0% completion! The same thing happened scanning a Baobab Tree on Kerbin - 0% mission completion, no matter what scanning arm I used.
  12. Hi Bob, any chance you could get the AVC files in your mods updated to show they are compatible with KSP 1.7.*?

    There's a bunch of mods using Community Category Kit or Community Resource Pack, for eg, as dependencies that CKAN is marking as incompatible due to the incompatible dependencies.

      Yep, being worked currently :)

  13. Think I found my problem. My joystick profile had disappeared. Creating a new one has the joystick working again!
