  1. Work has let up a little so I am back working on the rewrite. I don't know a date right now I'm back where I can work on it for the first time in a while. @infinite_monkey As you might expect from a telescope with a jumbo sized set of cameras, it produces a large amount of data. I haven't messed with Kerbalism in a really long time so I really don't know how it works now. I'll look into it when I get to the science part of the rewrite.
  2. @rottielover Long duration exposures for planets are already planned and I have also been considering random targets as well. As far as other types of scopes, they need to have some other function other than just changing what the object looks like. I don't feel that just taking the same picture with a different processor/camera to be enough to gain additional science. While real world applications this is a major difference, from a game-play balance perspective, I don't feel that it warrants a whole new set of science. Options i am considering are like the radio telescope but using a spectrographic type display for pointing. Also occultation shots for both type of telescopes is another option. These are quite a bit down the line though as just getting it back up and running are my main concerns.
  3. This is due to it not taking into account the zoom setting currently used. I'm not just going to update it to 1.6 since there are a lot of issues with it. I've restarted the rewrite so things will be cleaned up and working quite differently. I don't have a timeline on it yet but I'm progressing steadily. I've learned a lot about unity in the last couple months so things should go quite a bit smoother this time. I did have one ready but after learning some things, it was generally a really bad setup and decided to redo it. I'll try to get basic test versions out quickly and then start building in the features.
  4. Probably an error in the contract. I'll have to check the changes to contract config
  5. I haven't even got to play 1.6 yet so I'm not sure of the changes.
  6. There are currently only 3 of the processors working, the wide field ones. Each level is capable of giving more science for a given body. They have to be mounted in a telescope mount, either one manually placed in to the bay of the big telescope or the internal bay of the fungeye. I am still working on the rewrite but work keeps sending me to Puerto Rico so I haven't been able to do much for the last couple months. The new models are not going to be around any time soon so I'm having to do the rewrite with the current models.
  7. Update for 1.5.1 Change log: Updated for 1.5.1 Changed out of power GUI action to close and notify user rather than just blank the window

  9. I am working on a basic patch for compatibility. Work has been crazy lately but looks like I may have some freeish time starting next week. I'm going to release both a 1.4.5 and a 1.5 version as soon as I get the time. Still working on the rework too though.
  10. I'm waiting on models but since I don't have an ETA on them yet, I'm going to do an update of the 1.3.1 version for 1.4.5. It may take me a week or two to get it out. Once I get the models out, I'm going to release it as a new version of CactEye. @Flyk I'm not sure why the processors are missing. I need the log file to diagnose any problems with the mod. This mod does not add any function with Tarsier, it is completely separate. And I think DOE was removed because of getting lazy with the updates while working on the newest version.
  11. I was hoping for new models but they are still in the works. I'm going go ahead and update to 1.45 and when I get the new models, I'll release the rewrite as a new CactEye. I'll be releasing it in a week or two.
  12. Like I said, you will be able to disable it but it it's in the spirit of the telescope it is inspired by so they will be in there and enabled by default. The JWST could be realistic by raising the price to unlock it the more tech you unlock
  13. There will still be multiple levels of processors, I'm just removing an old one that doesn't work and I'm going to add a couple more plus the ability for others to be made. The breaking of parts is not something I can really use another mod to handle. They will only happen while actively pointing which may be during a long-term study which will be mostly on rails time. This is to mimic the actual Hubble and the issues that it has. For those that don't want it, there will be an option to disable it. As to progress, the programming is pretty much complete but still have some bugs wandering around. I just changed jobs so I'm not able to work on it for about a month. Once I get the new models I'll be able to get it out quickly. I have talked to Cobalt but no ETA as of right now.
  14. I think it was still in it then, but it has not really worked since I took this over.
  15. I thought the same thing at first but then realized this was the release thread
  16. It has been a while since I posted in this thread. The rewrite is still ongoing but as usual life is slowing it down. I am also waiting for completion of the new models as well. I can release a recompiled version but it will not help with research bodies, and will probably be buggy.
  17. I don't know if it will make it or not. I've tried to fix it but I've done about as much patchwork as I was able so I have started a complete rewrite. I can make it work as is for 1.4.3 but that would just be a placeholder and I don't even know if that would be stable. I don't know when it will be complete at this point as life is being a major pain as well.
  18. I don't call what I do a circle, More like just some random squiggly mess.
  19. The last time I talked to him about it, they were not complete yet, plus there are some possible changes to the model. So the as of right now, no.
  20. If this is in the new version, I am away from home and won't be able to check until next week. If it is not, what version.
  21. Asteroid processor is broke. It is being removed in the next version.
  22. Neither Fungeye nor Cacteye can be used outside of high earth orbit at the moment. I'll take a close look at that contract. I will be updating to the latest DOE so hopefully that will not be an issue in the future
  23. Currently I'm in the middle of a redesign and rewrite. After some issues were brought up with interactivity with the JWST, I realized just how monolithic this telescope is. I'm working on redesigning it to be more modular and adaptable code base. As it stands right now, it is a royal pain to add something like a new telescope or even a new processor. I'm working on a redesign of the base to make it so that most of the configuration for telescopes and processors to be defined in the config files rather than code so that it can interact with other mods better. As far as help, I don't really need much at the moment as the base code is changing quite rapidly. I have my own private repository i'm using for testing at the moment to keep from cluttering up the github with failures. On top of that, I'm actually learning the parts of the code I've avoided up to now so until I get that figured out I really don't have much of a concrete direction. Once I get it to a more stable form and get a clear roadmap laid out I may need some help.
  24. I realized I forgot to add that into the OP after the new contracts were created. That has been done.
  25. Using any of the CactEye scopes does not take any money. The only things that should take money are R&D purchase and rocket launch. Do you have contract configurator installed?
