  1. Oh my god. These enhancements are something for which I've been waiting a very long time. I don't think I've been this hyped for a mod since the first time I heard about Scatterer Simply fantastic news.
  2. I've tried that a couple of times now. I never last more than an hour. The stock skybox and sunflare alone are enough to bring me to tears of frustration.
  3. Now that fall semester is over I've been working on a heavy rover delivery system for an unmanned ballistic aerocapture Duna mission. Heatshield + aerocapture, then drogues, then a short propulsive maneuver to bring the puck down to about 0.5 m/s, all using bits from an old kOS script I wrote last year. Now that I've done the proof of concept, I need to go through the Duna script and overhaul it because it's a mess and I'm using a new library system. Still lots of work to do.
  4. Would anybody consider tackling something like this? It'd be a drive-on/drive-off rover docking platform, with retractable ramps and an extendable docking port (the orange cylinder, shown in its fully stowed position). The idea would be to connect to a docking port attached to the undercarriage of a rover, and when it comes time to deploy, would retract out of the way to let the rover drive off. Ideally there could be a 3.75m and a 1.25m variant, for fitting rovers of different sizes. Here's a mockup of a potential use-case:
  5. lol nope I misread. Inline maths is hard to read.... Can you post the relevant code?
  6. The bolded bit there should just be the unit position vector, I'm pretty sure (no factor of mu).
  7. Well that is just adorable. But umm... how's the driver supposed to see?!
  8. Oh, sweet. I figured adding cameras to parts was a Unity thing. Thanks!
  9. That's what I figured. I removed the lights and drogues to no avail, then I moved the port itself up a little and the issue went away—the part underneath the port was clipping into the camera. If you ever find yourself messing around with the docking ports in unity, could you consider moving the camera a little further forward so that it's closer to the docking port face? I'm assuming the camera is just attached to the CoM of the part.
  10. @linuxgurugamer where is the "camera" located on the docking port jr? I have some very minor part clipping at the edges of the port, but the camera is still obstructed in flight.
  11. https://gfycat.com/MaleAnimatedBichonfrise https://i.imgur.com/8CC8NPc.png Inside that tapered fairing is my Munar lander. The debug console shows that the game engine is packing both the SKII (the whole ship), and the SKII Lander for orbit when my kOS script timewarps. So the game tries to pack the lander for timewarp, then I get a NaN orbit error in the debug console, and the game engine despawns that whole part of the craft. It seems like the game engine thinks it's dealing with two separate crafts, maybe?

  12. I'm aiming for the specific geoposition. You using a PID to land the boosters?
