  1. Oooh, that's even better than what I was thinking. Very nice.
  2. Amazingly, I was JUST thinking it would be cool to have a pack of segmented flying saucer parts - the sketches I drew on my steno pad instead of paying attention during my companywide meeting this morning look more or less exactly like this. In other words, definitely looking forward to trying this out. Wondering how your cargo bays are set up to work - do they open upward or downward? Or sideward? Or squidward? (Sorry, it was there)

    [1.5.x] Stockalike Station Parts Redux (Nov 7)

    I am absolutely loving the IVA's for these... really just brings the whole thing together. Looking toward the future, are you considering support for Raster Prop Monitor MFD's? Those would make the big control centers really shine. ^^
  4. Heyyy, I loved this mod! Glad to see it's back in business. =D

    [1.4.5] Throttle Controlled Avionics

    Aww yiss =D I know what I'll be doing during lunch today. Thank you @allista for the new version, even in the face of unreliable municipal services. o7

    [1.4.5] Throttle Controlled Avionics

    Didn't realize how badly I needed this mod until I tried my hand at some dropship designs. Quite excited to see this updated - patiently awaiting the non-debug version ^^ Which does bring me to a question... how nicely does this play with tilt-rotor designs (the kind someone might build with Infernal Robotics)?

    [1.4.X] OSE Workshop Continued - KIS Addon

    @Aelfhe1m that is a fantastic guideline - I think I've got the right idea from there. Thanks!
  9. Hey folks ^^ I'm about to give Gold Standard a try, and I had a couple of questions about a tweak I'd like to make. I'm somewhat interested in naming it MetalOre/Metal for the sake of personal preference. For that renaming to work, all I'll need to do is a find-replace in all the config files for GoldOre/Gold, right? That doesn't appear to collide with any of the resources in the CRP so I THINK I should be good to go there. Secondary question... it's a little unreasonable that I'm bothered by this at all, but the fact that we now have a DIFFERENT kind of Ore than the stock Ore really makes me want to rename the stock Ore (to something like FuelOre.) Anyone have an idea of how easy that would be to do using ModuleManager?... Thanks!

    [1.4.X] OSE Workshop Continued - KIS Addon

    Hey folks - big fan of the workshop mod. ^^ I had a question about a small adjustment I was looking to make to the MaterialKits converter recipes. I'm also using the Gold Standard mod that adds a couple more (highly valuable) resources to some planets. I'm interested in replacing the role of Ore in the workshop mod with one of the resources from Gold Standard - IE MaterialKits would be generated using Gold Standard's Unobtanium, rather than Ore. (Solidfuel/Ablator can still be manufactured using Ore, because that makes sense.) I THINK I have the right idea about how to adjust the .cfg files in Workshop to reference Gold Standard's resources - would there be anything else required to get that to work (do I need to ensure that Workshop gets loaded AFTER Gold Standard?) Thanks!
  11. Hecka looking forward to the return of your balloon parts. =) Will those be returning as a component of this mod or will they be getting their own mod?

    0.90 Kerbal Weather Systems! Alpha 0.5.3 WIP! (Jan 2)

    Looking forward to it! ^^ I like a little unpredictability in my launches.

    [1.5.1] Extraplanetary Launchpads v6.3.1

    Shiny =) I'm thinking FuelOre. Seems appropriate. Looking forward to 5.2!

    [1.1.2] Kerbal Attachment System (KAS) 0.5.8

    Are you proud of yourself? Are you proud of what you just typed? (I lol'd =P)

    [1.5.1] Extraplanetary Launchpads v6.3.1

    Kudos on the new beta version! =) My only real issue with the new execution of EPL is the name "MetalOre" - it makes me feel like stock's "Ore" should be called something else. If I had a mind to rename EPL's "MetalOre" or stock's "Ore" to something that I like better, would I be able to as long as I tracked down all the dependencies, or is stock's "Ore" hardcoded somewhere I can't touch?
  16. I would like to suggest a new tool: a way to make a gameplay recording of a flight, and then replay it later on from the point of view of any object(s) within physics range during the recording. You'd be able to position your camera arbitrarily in relation to any physics-enabled object or the surface of any planet in a way that mostly resembles the current external camera, but with some restrictions removed (i.e. no more restriction on panning the camera away from the focused object.) You'd also be able to look out from any IVA within physics range, whether or not a Kerbal is present in the IVA. Some information elements (heat / drag overlays, resources, etc) would be available when focused on a physics-enabled object. The option to hide all overlays would also be available. I would use the HECK out of this for a variety of purposes: -watch any launch from the point of view of the administration building, or from the island runway, or from the control tower on the SPH -watch any docking maneuver from the point of view of the target vessel or station -watch any flight from IVA, if you were too chicken to actually fly it in IVA -watch the same flight from a variety of viewpoints -turn on all the overlays to review your vessel's performance during a flight -turn off all the overlays and make some hecka awesome machinima What do we think??
  17. I was just directed to this mod after opening a discussion about a gameplay recording tool in the Feature Request forum - this looks awesome, and VERY close to what I was talking about, and I would like to put my 2 funds into hoping this gets updated. =)

    Replay tools!

    I... did not know that was what that mod was for. Interesting! =D Thought I maintain that a stock solution would be lovely to have, as it could potentially allow for more extensive camera control. Still, I'll keep my eyes open for a 1.0.2-ready version of the mod. @mattinoz, slow-mo would be hecka awesome (probably would work by interpolating between each frame of the recording).
  19. Bee tee dubs... now that I've taken the newly updated FS parts for a spin, I have the following feedback: -I've noticed that some of the propeller parts end up under the "fuel tanks" tab in the VAB, which doesn't seem right - the rest of them show up correctly in the "Engines" tab. -So the basic adjustable propeller part costs 650 funds, but so does a basic jet engine - I feel as though propeller parts (and, indeed, most of the parts in the Firespitter lineup) should be significantly cheaper. -The basic adjustable propeller also comes AFTER the basic jet engine in the tech tree, which just seems silly. =P

    Make Hot Parts Glow!

    Yup, the visible glow should happen much sooner. Also - I feel as though active engines should actually emit light (yes they glow, but I mean actually cast light on objects around them.) A bundle of SRB's getting fired on the launchpad at night should light up the KSC like a Christmas tree. =D
  21. Woooooooo Firespitter is back! =D Now I can build my tilt-rotor science VTOL again. Thanks for the hard work, gentlemen.

    [1.1.2] Kerbal Attachment System (KAS) 0.5.8

    Mmm... dat winch doe. =D Looking pretty awesome.
  23. I believe temperature now affects solar panels in a pretty big way. Not sure if atmospheres effect them now, though - would be interesting to know. These fuel cell thingies are turning out to be pretty handy, I think. =D

    [1.1.2] Kerbal Attachment System (KAS) 0.5.8

    Shiny =D Will it be savegame-breaking if we're using the 0.90 parts already?

    [1.1.2] Kerbal Attachment System (KAS) 0.5.8

    Bigtime user of KAS here and I'm happy to hear that it generally works well in 1.0.2 - however, I'm interested in knowing if it would be better to wait for the KIS-based version of KAS.
