  1. Hi! I'm also experiencing this issue, but in 1.6.1. I just left the log on the Github issue.
  2. So I did some messing around and managed to get this working with the new KAS modules. I only modified the SEP.plug part: I removed both deprecated KAS modules (KASModulePort and KASModuleStrut) and replaced them with the new modules, by trying to replicate the KAS parts. The plug now has a KASLinkTargetBase module which allows cables to be connected to it, and KASLinkSourceInteractive, KASRendererPipe, KASJointCableBase which allow it to create cables to connect to other plugs. I set this connection as AlwaysCoupled so there's no need to use the GUI after connecting for the experiments to register as connected to the station. This allows the experiments to be calibrated and run, with EC being correctly drained from the station. Both warping and saving/loading seem to work. I also tested having a power station between the central station and the experiment and nothing broke. Now this is not perfect (at all): since plugs are both a LinkTarget and a LinkSource, it's possible to have two connections for each plug (one as a connection starter, the other as a receiver). This is probably not the way the plugs are supposed to work. Also, since I had to add a new node and had no idea how its coordinates work, the connections are not very pleasing to the eyes (look at the pic). Or maybe it's not about the node but some of the joint configurations, no idea. Anyway, here's the config for the plug: PART { name = SEP_plug module = Part author = AlbertKermin and CobaltWolf MODEL { model = SurfaceExperimentPackage/Parts/SEP_plug } rescaleFactor = 1.0 node_stack_top = 0.0, 0.0319243, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 0.0, 0 node_stack_bottom = 0.0, 0.0319243, 0.0, 0.0, -1.0, 0.0, 0 node_attach = 0.0, 0.0319243, 0.0, 0.0, -1.0, 0.0, 0 TechRequired = basicScience entryCost = 1800 cost = 100 category = Electrical subcategory = 0 title = #LOC_SurfaceExperimentPack_plug_title //= AKI Power Transfer Conduit manufacturer = #LOC_SurfaceExperimentPack_mfg //= Albert Kermin Industries description = #LOC_SurfaceExperimentPack_plug_desc //= This plug is one end of an AKI Power Transfer Conduit.

  3. Hi. With SEP 2.7.1 and KAS 1.2 (all from CKAN) I can confirm the bug regarding the lack of a "link" option in the context menu for the AKI plug. I can also confirm that adding the old KAS.dll from the LEGACY folder from KAS 1.1 makes it appear again. I did a quick test with one station and one experiment, linked them together and the experiment both calibrated and started. But a lot of other KAS errors showed up while doing this so it's not a real fix. I looked around the config files and found some KAS compatibility patches that seem to replace the KASModuleStrut module used by the plug to something else, for example from KAS/Patches/COMP-LegacyParts.cfg MODULE { name = KASModuleStrut action = Drop } MODULE { name = KASLinkTargetBase action = Add } I'm not familiar with what those actions do though. I can also see that no new parts in KAS use the KASModuleStrut, and that the removed LEGACY parts did, so maybe they removed those modules completely? My log file seems to support this: [LOG 23:05:55.508] PartLoader: Compiling Part 'SurfaceExperimentPackage/Parts/SEP_plug/SEP_plug' [ERR 23:05:55.523] Cannot find a PartModule of typename 'KASModulePort' [ERR 23:05:55.523] Cannot find a PartModule of typename 'KASModuleStrut' And the old KAS.dll at least references the module: $ grep -R KASModuleStrut * Binary file KAS/LEGACY/Plugins/KAS.dll matches Please let me know if I can provide any more info!
