  1. So that's 0.1. Testing is going well on my career save, it's very useful for resupply missions (I'm using USI LS) in the Kerbin/Mun/Minmus SOI and having 10x seats in the back is brilliant for tourist contracts. My current list of improvements is: 0.2: * Integrated comms and MechJeb in the cockpit, maybe thermometer as well * Implement hatch on the fuselage * Standard RCS kit with mountpoints for docking ops * Separate fuselage tail fins into animated aero kit * FlagDecals Roadmap: * Build alternative fuselage with zero passenger seats but operating ramp for cargo * 3rd alternative "skycrane"
  2. Good to know, I missed that. PEBKAC as usual. Cheers
  3. RD, I hit a problem last night with USI LS. I have a small Mun base consisting of a Koala, an emergency shelter and a comms module, with a small Supplies tank (with several small supply paks attached to it), crewed by 1 orange suit and 1 white suit. I had resupplied it with approx 200d of Supplies. On approach to the base with more parts, once I was in physics range, I got the message about crew going on strike. Imagine my surprise to see all of the supplies gone and the white suit sulking. I have other bases with similar supply levels, and they were fine, this one just blipped to zero. Bei
  4. IIRC I had a similar problem because my Part Triggers layer wasn't on the correct numbered layer. I want to say layer 21, but that's off the top of my head. If that's not it, can you post a pic of the setup in unity?
  5. I will have a look at implementing a ramp when 1.0.5 hits.
  6. Wings and gear basic textures done.
  7. I'm sure there are lots of ways to do it. I use Git because I'm a programmer and I'm used to that workflow.
  8. Yes, I'm calling it a Kraken and moving on with a new and improved station
  9. Thanks, that's very useful. I'll keep thinking how best to do it.
  10. Looks like there was a part rename in the latest update: Is that the little inflatable survival pod? Should be safe to delete from the savegame right? *edit* I deleted the 3 instances in my savefile where there was a PodCapsule part. Then my station exploded. So I guess that's not the way to fix it.
  11. Each time I shut down KSP I do a git add/commit/push on the savegame folder. It's saved my bacon a number of times already.
  12. Thanks I've done quite a bit of research into parody fair use provisions, as I make parody music. It is a difficult area of law to understand and there are no hard and fast rules. Ultimately it is a judgement based on a number of factors, one of which is intent.
  13. Thank you everyone. I appreciate your comment and parody is a very grey area. That is, however, absolutely the intent. I respect your opinion that the Valkerbie doesn't qualify as parody, but I disagree.
  14. At some point I will distribute my Valkerbie model to the KSP community and I understand I need to release it under a license. CC-BY-NC-SA seems the best fit. However as the Valkerbie is a representation of a model design owned by Games Workshop PLC, who are notoriously protective of their copyrights, I thought I had better include something to show I'm respecting those. I've included the following modifications to the license, do you think these are fair enough? Not a lawyer, but here goes: Thanks
  15. Today's WIPs: Fuselage and engine.
  16. Bit of work texturing the fuselage...
  17. Working lights that even turn on and off! Final texture for now:
  18. Temporarily fixed the portrait issue by using an IVA that has 2 seats rather than the Mk1 Cockpit. Obvious in hindsight Working on lights now while I watch RoverDude's stream.
  19. So after hours relearning UVW unwrapping and texturing, I've got v1 of the cockpit texture done. Then it was on to learning ladders and hatches. omg. Got it working though. Weird bug of the day: There are 2 cockpit seats in the SPH, Jeb and Bob are seated in it. In flight I can access both Jeb's and Bob's inventories, so it's recognising they are in the cockpit. However I only get one portrait! Jeb can EVA and re-board, but I can never EVA/IVA the back seater, as their portrait doesn't show. Any ideas?
  20. Thanks, but I can't even claim credit for unwrapping. I just put UVW box maps on each part
  21. Many of you I assume were waiting for me to realise that a single-piece ship wasn't really going to work given all the different modules it would need etc. So I've broken it up into: - Cockpit - Fuselage - Wings (left and right as they are asymmetric) - Main Engine - VTOL engine - Main landing gear - Nose landing gear early testflight prior to main engine development She weighs just over 13T wet and hovers on VTOL at just over 50% throttle, which should give her a power margin for hauling cargo. I don't want it to be a super ship that can effortlessly haul stations into orbit, but if it can h
  22. I have had problems in the past with corrupted savegame files, especially when using (and building) mods, so I now control my savegame files with git. This creates a .git folder in the saves folder, which is picked up by the game as an "incompatible/invalid save". It's no problem as I simply choose "delete", KSP is unable to delete it, and I can play as normal. The only problem comes if I choose ignore instead of delete, which locks up the client necessitating a restart. I would think it would be a simple change to have the client ignore dot folders when looking for savegames. Thanks
  23. First mod, it had to be my favourite 40K ship. Thanks to anyone who's ever posted a howto or edited the dev wiki or built a mod tool: I've probably read/watched/used it over the past few days. Next steps: tidy up the mesh a bit, add engines and landing gear, a basic texture and get down and dirty with the .cfg. A bit worried about how to implement VTOL. Cross that when I come to it. If this goes well I might do some more 40K inspired stuff.
