  1. So, without reading every word of every page of this ungainly thread, has anyone responded to this or have any info on the HUD components and how to work with them? I've not seen any plugins do this, nor anyone discussing it, but I'm still rather new here. I'm planning/hoping to create a Heads-Up Compass, that shows which way the player's view is facing, as opposed to just the vessel's heading. Also, I'd like to be able to modify the existing HUD display components and/or make them individually moveable/zoomable. For instance, moving the gauges to a secondary monitor would be very nice - like good flight sims. I'm an experienced web (PHP/HTML/CSS/JS) programmer, but I'm just now learning C#, so any tips that anyone can offer would be awesome.
  2. khyperia, Do you have the latest source code (1.2.1) posted anywhere? It seems the GitHub version is old (1.1.2). I'm very interested in this plugin from a programming point of view (I'm an old-school programmer finally learning C). I use HyperEdit all the time for landing my water craft at the KSC beach, etc., and I see the need for other features that might fit in well with it. I'm trying to decide whether to make my own plugin to accomplish what I want, or just offer it to you as an addition to HyperEdit.

    Oh, regarding the name of my ship (didn't think anyone cared), this one was called just "Ezriilc Water Speed X", but now it's "Ezriilc Water Speed 301!". Whenever a ship is deemed successful, I give her a permanent name (!) and archive the .craft file to my site for posterity. http://www.Kerbaltek.com/craftkitchen

    Yep. It's all stock. 8 turbo jets and 4 radial mount liquid rockets. I figure I only need about 3 more seconds of burn time to get over 306, but this thing nearly sinks on take-off as it is!

    Doc, I'm speech... ... dangit! NOW what do I do?

    The 12 jets get her up to ~225, then the rockets kick her faster until they run out of fuel - currently at 275m/s. There's no maneuvering at this speed, but she survived this run and Jeb had a blast.

    What fun! So, it turns out that racing boats is another awesome aspect of KSP. Here's my attempts at a pure speed record. This ship is called "Water Speed 4". She's not as pretty as her sisters, but she cruises comfortably at 250m/s, and can survive - and maybe even maneuver - at 266m/s. I've had her to 273, where she promptly explodes. The speed in the image below reads "266.3m/s". EDIT: The .craft file for this ship's line, and my other KSP stuff is here: http://www.Kerbaltek.com/craftkitchen Consider the gauntlet thrown, brethren. I claim the record! Yea, I said it.

    KSP'ers new and old, come say hello :D

    Congrats on the landing in just 3 days. It took me quite a lot longer.

    Hi, everyone! I've been playing KSP for a bit now and feel like I can finally post w/o feeling a complete tool, so here I am with my requisite social graces and whatnot. So far I find KSP to be thrilling, maddening, awesome, and terrible - of course, I love it. Playing and thinking about KSP seems to get my brain jazzed up to the point where I can't seem to focus on other things. Ah-well, it can't be any worse than my Minecraft addiction... right? I love to help others with tech-stuff and whatever, so feel free to ask me anything, about anything. Cheers, Kerbs!
