  1. Sincere apologies for not responding. Apparently the forums no longer care to send me notifications. All of my mods receive active maintenance and are generally fixed up to work with the latest version within a couple days. If a release is not specifically marked for the KSP version, it's safe to assume it works. I do not waste anyone's time by releasing unmodified files with a simple name change. No. I no longer participate in the forums (beyond replying to the remaining threads). Please do not ping me again for this.
  2. I have no intention at this time to put any of my mods on CKAN and I am not accepting pull requests for such.
  3. Collide-o-Scope was developed for KSP 1.3+ I will NOT be backporting any of my mods, ever.
  4. Statements like this are why I will be switching to All Rights Reserved for all future licensing. Not contacting the mod authors to get info on whether the mod is abandoned before you take it upon yourself to distribute/patch/fork causes many problems down the road for mod authors that have not abandoned their work. I don't intend to direct my comment at you specifically, but this is an issue that is starting to creep into the KSP culture more and more. It's not the right path for modding to take.
  5. Putting words in someones mouth is not a kind thing to do. Please don't speak for me. I apologize for leaving y'all in the dark for so long. I removed public support for reasons I shall keep to myself. Those reasons have since been resolved and I do intend on getting the mods back to the public space. However my current schedule is not allowing the time to get this work done. If Curse hadn't bugged out and deleted the projects, I could unarchive the files and it would be good. Unfortunately... Curse is Curse and seemed to delete the projects and the messages I left there to let everyon
  6. Thanks for showing me where the attitude of the forum community is at. I should've never posted in a public space. Lesson learned. The court cases cited in that article give a clear picture. I'm already exhausted from having this discussion in several other places over the years. Feel free to disregard everything I've said. This will be my last post about this issue anyway. Yes, limiting legal risk is the responsibility of the user. I never stated anything about removing risk. I stated it was allowed (i.e. by the court cases I've read verbatim). As much flak as I've given Squad over the y

  8. Please do your research on Copyright and DMCA before stating false information. Reverse engineering is legal if the intent is to create inter-operable software and/or hardware. https://www.eff.org/issues/coders/reverse-engineering-faq
  9. A couple observations that came up in parallel with my research. This is covered under US law. (unsure of other locations) Archival copies are allowed so long as they are not distributed/sold/etc. Reverse engineering is covered under Copyright and DMCA. It is allowed with the intent to create inter-operable code and/or hardware. However, distribution of copyrighted code is where you run into issues. The block you quoted states "the Online services" which does not apply to the KSP software as there is no online service component (yet). As far as licensing for mods,
  10. I don't understand why people are missing the main clause that is different/new that may directly apply to the KSP mod community. I haven't completed my research on this statement. It appears to be "standard" and directly states that "The Software may allow you to create content...gameplay map, scenario..." That's the bit I'm still looking into. KSP does not directly allow us to create certain mod content. However if this is to be interpreted to include the act of loading and facilitating the execution of mod content, then mod authors are releasing their copyright to Take 2. I'm h
  11. I can't speak for other mods. What the resource conversion limiter does is run the equipment (ore processor or fuel cell) until the converted resource (fuel or EC) reaches the % that you set. So if you want to maintain 50% EC at all times, set the fuel cells to 0.5. The fuel cells will turn on when EC drops below the limit and turn off when it reaches or exceeds. This gives you power through the night while allowing solars to do their job and not waste your fuel during the day.
  12. Hey! I apologize for not responding to this sooner. All this mod does is expose a hidden value on the fuel cells. Kamuchi did a great job (where I failed) to explain what this does: If you've ever done ore processing with the stock parts, it's the same feature that the processors have.
  13. @linuxgurugamer I'm a bit confused now. Nothing in my mod is looking at RCS thrust transforms (there isn't one in the stock config files). Unfortunately because of the scope I've placed on my mods 'Should Be Stock' I will be unable to implement a bug fix on my end. If you're using a PartModule designed for engines and not RCS, I suggest rotating whatever transform you're adding so that the stock code operates as intended.
  14. Oh! I was not aware of this. I'm submitting an issue and will get the mod fixed in the next week (life stuff permitting)
