Airbrake Expansion A new parts mod I'm working on making a new mod for KSP and would appreciate some feedback and assistance. The idea is to give the player access to several new airbrake types that perform specific roles. I love the idea of airbrakes but the stock ones... kinda suck. They're too slow to react for a proper control surfaces and they're too fragile for a proper re-entry assist, so I decided to break them up into some new parts that each perform very well in one category rather than acting as heavy drogue chutes. Completed: Fast Twitch Control Airbrakes- Very fast actuator speed, relatively small. Designed to help stop tumbling and maintain control when normal control surfaces are too cumbersome for a specific craft. Work in progress: Robust Airbrakes- Durable and large, these are the "dumb" approach to assisting with moderate re-entry. Wishlist: Smart Airbrakes- Designed to assist with extreme re-entry, they will start to retract if they near their g-force or temperature threshold. Going to require some new module coding. Looking for feedback: If you have any ideas about new niches for airbrakes that I haven't thought of yet, or ways to improve my current airbrakes, let me know. Looking for help: I'm currently struggling with "authorityLimiter" and "deployAngleLimits". Any number I enter for either of those values is being overwritten by "ctrlSurfaceRange" (or 1.5x "ctrlSurfaceRange" in the case of "deployAngleLimits".) I'm probably making some formatting error somewhere, but I can't seem to make those values play nice. Help with diagnosing the problem (or a concrete example of any mod using those values successfully) would be greatly appreciated.
This page is no longer being updated! @Lisias has continued development here KSP 1.12.x Distant Object Enhancement Continued [22.214.171.124] Last updated September 24th, 2021 Distant Object Enhancement Continued is a visual enhancement mod that makes objects realistically visible over large distances. It is an update of MOARdv's Distant Object Enhancement bis v126.96.36.199, which is a update of Rubber Ducky's Distant Object Enhancement. I have adopted the mod with permission of MOARdv Downloads CKAN SpaceDock GitHub This version keeps Ducktopia's CC Attribution 4.0 International license. Source code here: Github source
First off, lets go over what this plugin is NOT. 1.) It does NOT make your display magically HDR. 2.) It does NOT automagically output HDR (it instead renders it internally in the games pipeline and sends it out to whatever you have). 3.) It does NOT require an HDR display for some of the benfits (though that would be helpful for full effect). 4.) It does NOT play nice with kerbals built in MSAA (antialiasing) modes. It DOES: 1.)Enable better color gradient handling 2.) Enable better highlight handling 3.) Work well with HDR displays and an autoHDR algorithm (such as what is now shipping in the Windows 11 dev builds) to give good quality HDR output. 4.) Eat a bit more vram than standard rendering. 5.) Allows modifying TUFX Paperwhite nits in HDR mode (this is how I use it). If you want this, setup is simple. Unlike prior mods that turned on this mode, this one features no extra baggage. There is just a config file in the zip folder that you edit with two properties. I'll quote the readme for that part: So download, extract to GameData, set settings and go. If you like, keep. If you don't, thow away. Simple. License is GNUv3 GPL. Source is at Github here. Releases here. No screenshots since KSP screenshots do not capture HDR anyways, though I am open to nomininations if you can find better gradient handling before/after instances. This is a very low priority project vs Kopernicus, but it works for me and I actually use it, so it will probably be kept working. Tested on a 55" LG B9 OLED in HDR mode with Windows 11 AutoHDR. Thanks for reading and hope you find this useful.
