  1. make sure you give the cloned part a new name, multiple parts with the same internal name tend to cause weird things to happen
  2. As well as its own plugin which could be broken by an update, but so far the most recent updates have been pretty forgiving to plugins besides the most heavyweight ones
  3. Released version 1.1.0 This update adds support for using multiple depth masks with the same name, as well as hopefully better supporting multiple depth mask modules on the same part
  4. Hey, if you wanted to give the RCS a real interior instead of just a black cover this might be useful:
  5. In general, any other parts do not render behind the mask. This makes it not useful for cargo bays. The body property just lets you treat other transforms in your part exactly as you would any other part
  6. This plugin allows for parts to have hollow insets that dont clip into other parts, ideal for engine nozzles, landing gear, air intakes, solar panel bays, and more. It is a standalone version of the depth mask module included in the Restock dll, which will be included in the next major Restock update along with the additon of depth masks to several stock parts Downloads Source Code Usage Add a depth mask mesh to your part model. It should cover up the hollow area you want to prevent clipping in, without sticking out. Mark the depth mask object with the Icon_Hidden tag to prevent it from showing in the VAB part picker Add a new ModuleDepthMask to your part config Add the name of your mask object in the maskTransform property (Optional) Add the name of the object you want to restrict the mask effect to in the bodyTransform property An example config: MODULE { name = ModuleDepthMask maskTransform = mask bodyTransform = interior //Optional } Creating the depth mask model The depth mask will prevent any other parts from rendering behind it. Because of that, it should not be used on any kind of bay where other parts will be placed, or on any part you can look completely through. It also shouldn’t "bubble" out above the hole you want to cover, otherwise it would be possible to see through it from the side. Also double check your normal direction, since the depth shader only works one way. Screenshots mask meshes and configs for these stock parts will be included in the next major update to Restock Licensing This plugin is licensed Creative Commons Sharealike Attribution.

  7. Make sure texture quality in the settings is set to full and restart the game
  8. ah, understood. that does sound useful, in fact you might see an optional patch for restock making use of this... This is... not even remotely true
  9. so what does this do that a single large animation couldn't?
