  1. From what I've learned from the current version of kOS let me run my idea of how to organize library code by you. A set of library files, like nodes.ks function aponode { parameter altitude. local myvar is 1. ... }. function perinode { parameter altitude. ... }. function exenode { ... }. and mission.ks run loadfuncs. run aponode(100). run exenode(). will require to preload the functions in loadfuncs.ks: run nodes. // more library files to be added Makes sense or are there better solutions recommended?
  2. When I have a file foo.ks with function aponode { }. function exenode { }. how do I access those functions from mission.ks? aponode(). exenode().
  3. There is a working example of getting the "Surveyor 1.craft" to orbit in the kRPC directory at https://github.com/baloan/mt-krpc
  4. I like the way reference frames are designed. It is so much more explicit and cleaner than in kOS. Fun to work with.
  5. Two more things: 1. Also I noted the connect() call has features - like using a different IP address - which are not documented. 2. the krpc namespace has functions - like get_status() - which are not documented. Please add to the github.io manual. NB: working on migrating my mission toolkit from http://kos.wikia.com/wiki/Mission_toolkit_v3
  6. The documentation tells about a streaming port. Some time there was a post about how to add_stream(getattr ... ). add_stream is nowhere documented, though. Is it still required?
  7. ANN: mission toolkit v3 published (together with a submission to the Kerbal Automated Mission Challenge) What makes the scripts stand out: 1. all maneuver nodes - including intraplanetary transfers - are _calculated_. No long running encounter finding, 2. super accurate node runner (usually gets orbit altitudes correct down to 0.1%), 3. inclination maneuvers calculated using vector calculus, 4. staging and trajectory code separated. The script and craft files are available here: http://kos.wikia.com/wiki/Mission_toolkit_v3 Videos available here
  8. I'd like to make two submissions: 1. Kerbin-Mun round-trip, and a 2. Kerbin-Minmus round-trip. What makes the scripts stand out: 1. all maneuver nodes - including intraplanetary transfers - are _calculated_. no long running encounter finding, 2. super accurate node runner, 3. inclination maneuvers calculated using vector calculus. The script and craft files are available here: http://kos.wikia.com/wiki/Mission_toolkit_v3 Kerbin - Mun round trip. Sorry, no commentary. Kerbin - Minmus round trip. Sorry, no commentary.
  9. What do you think about monthly releases? 12.2p1 has been published on May 21st and I see fixes and changes accumulating on github. In order to have some transparency and consistency with release naming I suggest: 1. only fix bugs between a 12.2* and the final 12.2 release. 2. put new features in the next release 12.3 branch. Does it make sense?
  10. I am looking for commands to end a program. The use case looks like this: declare parameter name. if ship:vesselname <> name { print "WARNING! This script maybe incompatible.". print "Designed to work with '" + name + "'". print " Current ship '" + ship:vesselname + "'". // end program } Is there an existing solution? Otherwise I want to open a ticket to add an "end" command.
  11. My mission toolkit here contains the exenode subprogram which does exactly what you are looking for.
  12. Anyone knows a way/mod to display a latitude/longitude grid on a planet or moon? Or to have an enhanced mouse cursor that displays latitude/longitude next to the mouse cursor? I am looking for a way to visually select latitude/longitude of a landing zone for my lander.
  13. That sounds like a good start. Sooner or later there will be breaking changes in the protocol. It is a wise move to add some kind of versioning when the connection is negotiated. That way client library migration can be done independently. It's not a cure but it lessens the pain.
