  1. Please note that Physics Range Extender and Module Manager are required dependencies for BDArmory Plus Also be advised that using the World Stabilizer mod will cause problems with PRE as it has its own world stabilization code we refer to as Black Spell ... Only solution to this is to not use the World Stabilizer mod ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ BDA+ Release Links: Github: https://github.com/BrettRyland/BDArmory/releases Spacedock: https://spacedock.info/mod/2487/BDArmory%20Plus Issues link: https://github.com/BrettRyland/BDArmory/issues Wiki: https://github.com/BrettRyland/BDArmory/wiki Physics Range Extender (REQUIRED): https://github.com/jrodrigv/PhysicsRangeExtender/releases Module Manager (REQUIRED): https://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/50533-18x-112x-module-manager-422-june-18th-2022-the-heatwave-edition/ Supported Mods: BDA+ has been made compatible with the following to allow integration with these mods: Camera Tools continued B9 ProcWings Fork Modified Procedural Parts TweakScale Ferram Aerospace Research Continued Firespitter (partial - only the active vessel has active engine throttling) Weapon Packs for BDA+: Fox Defense Contracts - Tank Turrets SMI Missiles and Launchers Aviator Arsenal Continued Kerbal Field Weapon Pack ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Overview BDArmory Plus (BDA+) is the release of two-plus years continuous development of BDA off of BDArmory Continued. Previously this development effort was released under BDArmory for Runway Project, but going forward it will be released under the BDArmory Plus (BDA+) name. BDA+ has numerous features and bugfixes over BDAc: Performance optimizations, tournament/autospawn tools, AI improvements, overhauled weaponry, hull material options and armor mechanics, battle damage, racing/waypoints and other game modes, and loads more. See the changelog for the full list of improvements and fixes. BDA+ also maintains compatibility with existing BDAc part mods and will continue to do so in the future. The BDA+ team consists of @DocNappers, @SuicidalInsanity, @josuenos and many contributors from the Runway Project community and beyond, including: Aubranium, Scott Manley (@illectro), Stardust (@Box of Stardust), Kurgan (@TheKurgan), Kaz (@Ryugi), CeruleanEyes, Fluffy, Cl0by, Concodroid, BillNyeTheIE, EzBro. Previous maintainers of BDArmory are @Papa_Joe, @jrodriguez, @SpannerMonkey(smce), @gomker, @TheDog, @DoctorDavinci and @BahamutoD. Changelog v1.5.2.0 v1.5.1.2 v1.5.1.1 v1.5.1.0 v1.5.0.0 For older changes dating back to when the BDArmory Plus (BDArmory for Runway Project) forked from BDArmory Continued, see the changelog on SpaceDock.

  2. guys, do you know active BDArmory servers? (Luna Multiplayer)
  3. This is a resurrection of SMI Missiles and Launchers by the legendary @SpannerMonkey(smce) Spanner gave me permission to bring this part of SM Armory Group back to a release state, and also permission to bring the missiles and bombs from SM Armory over to SM_Missiles. License There have been a couple of missiles removed that no longer function properly, and there may be one or two that were never released... I will continue to build upon and update this post in the near future, but for now, here it is! Download The heat seeking missiles have a new capability added for adjusting flare vulnerability... this has not been released by the BDA team yet. I have not tested them on versions of BDA lower then the current (unreleased) DEV build. If the heat seekers give you any issues, PLEASE let me know, and I will comment out the modules until the next version of BDA is released. Requires the latest version of BDArmory Texture switching uses FStextureSwitch2 from Firespitter available here Before anyone asks... I do not have permission, and will NOT ask for permission to revive any other parts of the SM Armory Group. The upkeep required for the rest of the SM Armory Group mods is well beyond my capabilities and desires.
  4. *cough* So i decided to start this discussion to help fellas creating and developing Ground Vehicles to be used competitively in BDArmoury ground combat. Most of the thread i found after browsing the forums mostly help with Planes but i never saw anything related to ground vehicles. So therefore this thread will be the place. Now i'm not an expert in KSP BDArmoury ground combat however, the reason i make this so that far experiences player could share their techniques and way. This will certainly help evolve the BDArmoury ground combat. Now let's start with my techniques on developing competitive techniques: 1. Off-set Building. Basically you put all of the part of your tank into the root part. The Purpose of this method was to prevent krakening. By putting all part in your root part, when the BD Shell hits and destroy one panel, other panel wouldn't be affected because they technically aren't connected to each other. However, the cons of this method, was that it was time consuming and when the root part is destroyed, the vehicle will fall apart. 2. Sloped Armour Sloped Armour with BDA Panel works the same way as IRL sloped armour. it helps both deflecting round and increase thickness and potential of the armour. 3. Compartment Spaced Armour To prevent the root part being destroyed and due to how Armour panel works, Compartment Spaced Armour works like a charm. To do this, all you need was to create a compartment inside the Tank chassis with the Armour panel, and to further increase the tank survival ability, You put other stuff inside that compartment, such as Fuel tank (to run the fuel cell), Ammo Storage, Batteries and more. 4. Composite Reactive Armour Using IRL tank such as M1 Abram and Challenger 2 for example. Those two tank uses composite armour called Chobbam. From what i've been researching, the Chobbam's Unclassified composition is made out of Concrete sandwiched between 2 steelplate. So therefore, if we uses this method In KSP, it should look like BDA Armour Panel + KSP 1x1 Stock Panel/DLC Panel + BDA Armour Panel. Basically sandwiching Stock Panel and BDA Panel with the Stock Panel in the middle. From my experience, KSP Panel both Stock and DLC works like a reactive armour while the BDA Panel works like a regular panel. So therefore, after the BDA Shell penetrates the first layer of armour, it will hit the KSP Panel and the KSP will explode. However, from my testing, when used this way, The KSP Panel could damages the BDA Armour panel so used cautiously. My Recommendation would be used Compartment Spaced Armour and then using the Sandwich armour in the front, mixing it with non sandwiched Spaced BDA Armour and then using Another Reactive armour like how the Russian's T-90 tank uses. 5. Softkill and Hardkill APS What i mean by Softkill and Hardkill APS, is that using BDA Jammer to prevent or at least make it harder to lock onto your tank with missile. And using Turret (Such as the 30mm Chain turret or the M20 Vulcan Turret) for Hardkill APS like a CIWS system. This way, killing your tank with a missile will be somewhat Harder. 5. Power Unit and Wheel From my experience, most competitive lads would uses either RoveMax Model M1 or TR-2L Ruggedized Vehicular Wheel. Those two wheels both have pros and cons. First one with Rovemax M1. It has a great acceleration rate and consumed less power than the TR-2L Wheel. It also have a great suspension system compared to the TR-2L. However the cons of the M1 is that it has a lower top speed, narrower surface which leads to instability at higher speed than the TR-2L. To fix this was to duplicate the wheel so it has the same surface width as the TR-2L. This would increase the acceleration rate and top speed however, the power consumtion rate and the price will be so high that it became worthless. TR-2L meanwhile have a lower acceleration, high power consumtion rate, and a mediocre suspension compared to the M1, however, the surface width of the track is wide enough so that you won't need 3 tire layer on one side jsut to have a grippy vehicle. For maximum speed from my experience, usually many competitor uses Juno engine and TR-2L, while some use Juno and M1. However, running on just battery isn't gonna last that very long especially you need the battery to run the vehicle and the track. To generate the power for the battery, i usually uses 4 Baguette tank and one large Fuel cell. This is enough to prevent draining power from the battery once you're on full speed with the tank using just the track power. If you have more tips and tricks to min-max your ground vehicle, please reply PS: Sorry for the grammar.
  5. I was Making a MiG-1.44 Replica And I used a Custom Bombbay, When I put it into a dogfight I had to Manually Open it, the AI will not fire a missile until it is open because the missile path is obstruced. Also, My F-14 Tomcat, when operated by a AI, Does not change the wing sweep regardless of the situation, it must be done manually. Is there a Way to Make the AI use the Infernal Robotics Joints Like the Cargo Bays for concealed weapons?
  6. Dawn of the Jet Age - BDAc AI Dogfight Tournament With the release of BDAc for KSP 1.7, it's time for a new BDA tournament. Like the previous BAD-T's I've run, this will consist of 2v2 dogfights featuring vintage aircraft. While this isn't an official BAD-T, its ruleset will be similar, if less strict, with some experimental additions, and is a way to have some fun until the next official BAD-T comes along. Contestants will submit a craft, which will then be pitted against other submitted craft in a standard tournament ladder format, with fights recorded and posted to YouTube. Defeat means a craft is out of the running, success means it moves up to the next bracket. depending on the number of entries, a second-tier ladder may also be run, featuring craft that lost their first bout. To enter, simply create a post WWII-ish (~1946-1952) themed first/second generation jet. Replicas of real world aircraft are permitted, but not required. Craft design, AI configuration and armament are entirely up to you. As long as it follows the rules and looks like it could have been a real aircraft from around that era, it's a valid entry. The following mods are required: FAR 0.15.10.1 "Lungren" for KSP 1.7 Aviator Arsenal AA also requires a compatibility patch for KSP 1.2+. The one I'm using can be found here. BDAc 1.3.SI, with DMG_MULTIPLIER = 300 in the GameData/BDArmory/Settings.cfg. Stock BDAc 1.3 is also acceptable, if you don't want want to keep track of a modded version. BAD-T Jet pack Additionally, the following mods are permitted, but optional: B9 Proc wings Procedural parts Adjustable landing Gear using the 1.7 recompile for KSPWheel Brackets Aircraft Classes: Entries will fall into one of two categories, Fighters and Heavy Fighters. Fighters are single engine aircraft. They have one engine. They must have a dry mass of at least 2500 kg*. They can use up to 100 points worth of engine and armament. Heavy fighters are heavy twin engine aircraft. They have 2 engines. They must have a dry mass of at least 5250 kg*. They can use up to 150 points worth of engines and armament. *Dry mass is the empty weight of the craft, wet mass is the loaded weight of the craft with fuel and ammunition. Resources like Monoprop and Ore which aren't used as fuel or ammo can be used as ballast and count towards dry mass. Points: Weapons cost their diameter in mm, rounding down. -7mm weapons were obsolete by this point in time, and will only cost 5 points each. Engine price is listed in their part name and description. (J-C32 G "Goblin" is worth 32 points, etc.) Ammo is free, carry as much or as little as desired. However, if your planes run out of ammo during a match, it will be considered a loss by default. Rules: -Craft should have no more than 60 parts, please. -Part Armor is remain at default values. -Only Aviator Arsenal weapons permitted, with the exception of the Ball Turret. No more than 6 ShKAS per plane. -Only BAD-T Jets allowed (Gremlin, Kobold, Nibelung, Goblin, Geist, Spectre, Phantom, Warlock) -Airbrakes are fine, A.I.R.B.R.A.K.E.s are not. No aerospace grade parts permitted– A.I.R.B.R.A.K.E.S, radiators, RCS, heatshields, etc. -No reaction wheels. Cockpit reaction wheels must be disabled. -Craft must have at least 1 Kerbal, either in a cockpit, or a constructed open cockpit using a command seat. Stock cockpits are heavy; using a stock cockpit part grants a +20 point bonus to your weapon/engine budget if building a single engine Fighter. -Part clipping is allowed, within reason. No clipping resource containing parts into other resource containing parts please. Fully clipping ballast parts into other stuff is fine. -No text editing. -The Edihill Clause: While cheesy Min-Maxed designs that take advantage of loopholes or game exploits may be technically legal, I ask that contestants respect the spirit of the competition, not just Rules As Written. Recommendations - Optional, but might be a good idea: -Use the AA Communications antenna - it's a combination Weapon Manager/AI pilot. Saves on part count, also stylish. -If using a constructed cockpit, consider making it enclosed – it will generate less drag, and minimize the risk of your pilot being hit or killed by incoming fire (unsurprisingly, if the pilot dies, the plane will crash) -Try to have at least 15 minutes of fuel. -AI min alt should probably be above 300m. -Test your plane against the Dummy. if nothing else, this certifies that your craft possesses basic flight-worthiness. Paintball mode may be useful here. Submissions: Submit craft by the the deadline, 11:59 PM, Tuesday, July 9th. To submit, upload your craft to KerbalX or similar, and send me the download link via PM. Sharing links to your crafts in the thread is fine, but only craft I've been sent via PM will count as entries. (This is mainly to make sure that entries don't get accidentally skipped or lost in the thread.) F.A.Q. Can I submit more than one craft? -Yes. In the interest of getting enough planes to have a decently sized roster, you may submit up to 2 aircraft I submitted my craft already, but it (accidentally) breaks the rules, what happens now? -If your craft is an illegal design, I will PM you, and give you the chance to correct the design and re-submit. I've updated my craft after submitting it, can I resubmit? -No, simply to keep the logistics of managing entries simple, one submission per aircraft per person. You can edit your submission's KerbalX upload or similar as long as it retains the same name before the deadline, but no submitting multiple craft (i.e. you submit a plane, then resubmit a mk2 version later, then a tweaked mk3 after that...) I'm bad at building craft in FAR, should I still submit something? -Yes. Sure, there will be some entries that are hyper-competitive, but for the most part, this tournament is aimed at having fun, watching submitted craft fight bravely and die gloriously.A FAR tutorial will be posted, and either myself or other FAR vets in the thread will probably be happy to help should you have questions. The rules said something about constructed cockpits? - Take an External Command Seat and use parts to build a cockpit for the Kerbal. Or don't. Just keep in mind strapping Jeb to the top of a plane is going to generate a lot of drag, and Kerbals have a low tolerance for hot lead poisoning. What's up with the custom BDAc the tournament will be using? -BADc 1.3.SI is a custom re-compile of BDAc1.3 for the tournament, and adds in stuff that previous tourney participants felt were missing. Includes the ability to have multiple engagement ranges for weapons in a group, some new advanced AI tweakable settings, and an experimental Reckless AI personality that places less focus on evasion; should help it retain more energy and stay on target, at the cost of nigh-suicidal disregard for safety in some instances. Also includes paintball mode for craft testing. If you already have a copy of the latest BDA and/or don't want to keep track of a modded version, the vanilla version will still work, you'll just not have quite as many options for craft tuning. Tips & Tricks
  7. I have created a fresh new Topic to maintain BDAc continuity. For any past forum posts please refer to the Old BDAcTopic here: The old BDAc Forum Topic has been locked by the topic owner. Please note that Physics Range Extender and Module Manager are required dependencies for BD Armory Continued Also be advised that using the World Stabilizer mod will cause problems with PRE as it has it's own world stabilization code we refer to as Black Spell ... Only solution to this is to not use the World Stabilizer mod See spoilers below for release notes, videos, Github issues and download links The BDAc family of mods were all created by @BahamutoD, and in his absence, we have taken it upon ourselves to keep the explosions flowing For anything related to BDAc or mods in the BDAc family, I refer you to the Github link for Papa Joe's Soup (Slightly Over Used Parts) where there is listed download links for the mods in question ... If you have questions or concerns, feel free to post here and the team will do our best to assist you I also refer you to our in game KSPedia where you will find a wealth of information on the operation of BDAc Be aware that forcing opengl will result in many shaders showing as pink ... the only solution is DO NOT force opengl If you think you have come across a gremlin or a bug with BDAc or any of the mods we maintain, feel free to post here, however we ask that you also take a look at the issues list on Github to see if your problem has been addressed. We use the built in Github issues tracker to keep record of bugs, enhancements and feature requests as it is difficult to keep track of bug reports and all the great ideas that the community have come up with on the forum (things can get buried and lost under newer posts) Please note that only the most recent version of BDAc is supported at this time and that BDA needs PhysicsRangeExtender to work properly: https://github.com/jrodrigv/PhysicsRangeExtender/releases Also, to correctly install BDAc, first download the latest release from the BDAc releases link posted below (not the source download) and then extract the BDArmory folder contained within the zip file and place it into your KSP/Gamedata folder ... Do not, I repeat, do not place the Gamedata folder contained within the BDAc zip into your Gamedata folder as this will cause umpteen million conflicts to arise as the BahaTurret pickle looks for textures, configs and whatnot in specific places In regards to support, KSP.log please (Found in the same directory as the KSP executable ... this file is overwritten each time you start KSP ... upload this file to a filesharing site such as dropbox and post the link so the team can take a look) ... I also refer you to the following thread where it describes in detail everything else that is required for us to help you: Best Regards, The BDAc Team @Papa_Joe @jrodriguez @SpannerMonkey(smce) @gomker @TheDog @DoctorDavinci @Eidahlil @TheKurgan BD Armory wiki: http://bdarmory.wikia.com/wiki/BDArmory_Wikia BDAc Release Links: Releases link: https://github.com/PapaJoesSoup/BDArmory/releases Issues link: https://github.com/PapaJoesSoup/BDArmory/issues BDAc Multiplayer Release Links: https://github.com/jrodrigv/BDAMultiplayer/releases Physics Range Extender (REQUIRED): https://github.com/jrodrigv/PhysicsRangeExtender/releases BDAc Familiy Mod Links: https://github.com/PapaJoesSoup/VesselMover/releases https://github.com/jrodrigv/BDModularMissileParts/releases https://github.com/PapaJoesSoup/ImprovedChaseCamera/releases https://github.com/jrodrigv/DestructionEffects/releases https://github.com/jrodrigv/CameraTools/releases https://github.com/PapaJoesSoup/BurnTogether/releases https://github.com/PapaJoesSoup/BDMk22Plugin/releases BDAc Release Notes (latest only): BD Armory was originally developed by Paolo Encarnacion (BahamutoD) and distributed under the license CC-BY-SA 2.0.

  8. In agreement with FJS, my friend and I are hosting the first Stock Fighter Jet Showdown! We’ll be uploading the competition to YouTube later this year. On behalf of stock builders, we wanted to give you guys a chance to put your hard work on display. Rules: 1. Aircraft must be fully stock, no DLC, and no mods (except armed with BDA: see rule #8) 2a. Your weapons may consist of up to 6 guns, and 12 missiles from the base BDA, this is not per craft, this is per team of up to 3 aircraft, you may not have more than 3 aircraft in a team. 2b. Guns may be either 20mm hidden Vulcans, individual 50cals, or 30mm GAU-8s. 2c. You may have up to three crafts but you must distribute the weapons across them. 3. You may not clip engines, and there is to be NO craft file editing; the exception to engine clipping is if your fighter is heavily detailed. In that case, you will be allowed to clip engines in, but the craft may not go over 800m/s as a result of the extra engines 4. Craft are to be loaded out before submission. 5. For our sake please keep the part count per craft below 200, we’re trying to avoid having crappy frame rates for the sake of recording. 6. Craft will be inspected for compliance. 7a. Please submit craft by emailing [email protected] 7b. Submit your craft in the following format: Craft Name: [Insert Name] Amount: [Up to three] Armament per craft: Your Name: [The name you want to be listed as the builder] Attach head-on, top-down, and side images of your craft Attach the craft file. (Keep in mind how many aircraft and weapons you can have: 3 Aircraft- max of 4 missiles & two guns each 2 Aircraft: max of 6 missiles & three guns each 1 Aircraft: max of 12 missiles & six guns) 8. You may not use BDA’s armor feature, and you can only use BDA for the weapons, radars, Radar Warning Receivers, countermeasures and AIPilot/Weapons Manager, and the Saturn engines. 9. Aircraft must have a cockpit of some kind, and must take off, land, and fly like conventional aircraft. 10. These should actually be fighter aircraft, whether they're a replica, concept aircraft, or original design. Aircraft which do not look like they could be a proper fighter will be ruled out. This is solely because it's unfair if a low-quality aesthetics aircraft that is absurdly performance based goes against a high-quality aesthetics one. Only the highest quality designs with a lot of effort put into the aesthetics of it will be accepted, nothing more, no less. After all, this competition is to showcase the hard work and talent that stock builders put into their craft to make them as beautiful and as high-performing as possible.
  9. So i have an issue For some reason when i load up this group of mods the craft dont load unless their right next to each other It's really weird and it's pretty annoying. <blockquote class="imgur-embed-pub" lang="en" data-id="a/PeaSqpW"><a href="//imgur.com/PeaSqpW"></a></blockquote><script async src="//s.imgur.com/min/embed.js" charset="utf-8"></script> https://imgur.com/a/PeaSqpW Hope this helps. Thanks in advanced
  10. Kerbal Fighter Jet Endeavour Kerbin is at the brink of a global war. Nations across the globe are rushing to get their fleets of fighter jets ready for the day war breaks out. Awful for the planet, but now is the perfect time for aerospace corporations everywhere to bloom! Your mission is to design the best possible jet, but that’s not where it ends! You’ll also have to sell them… The leaderboard First of all you’ll obviously have to design an aircraft. The only rule is that the plane has to be manned, no drone battles here. External command seats will not be accepted either. The rest of the design is fairly simple really, apart from a few parts, you can do whatever you want (more on that later)! Of course the plane has to be capable of taking off under its own power. The banned parts are: BDA Armor All shapes and sizes of turrets Laser armament The use of the armor slider is also prohibited Further than that, if you wish to put in reaction wheels, RCS, whatever, go ahead, it’s all allowed! However, there’s a 100 part limit (don’t want to limit this competition to only the best computers). (optional)The second part is actually selling it. Every player can, beside sending in planes, act as a buyer for some imaginary nation. Everyone gets a budget of 10.000.000 credits to spend on a fleet of your choice (obviously you can’t buy your own aircraft). The best fighter won’t just fight well, it’ll also sell well. This way I hope to promote cheaper and more aesthetic designs as well as purely functional ones. As a plane designer you’ll have to write a sales pitch to convince buyers of your craft. The following data has to be in your pitch: cost, crew number, type (single engine, dual engine, …) and obviously a link to download your craft (preferably put that in the leaderboard as well). The leaderboard consist of multiple categories based on the amount of engines: - Single engine - Dual engine - Go crazy (basically everything that doesn't fit in the above 2 categories) The tournament itself will be organized in such a way that I don’t have to be present to lead everything, this way it can continue as long as people wish to, even if I am no longer active in the forums. So, how does it work? Planes will be taken together in groups of 5 (check the spreadsheet if you’re confused right now). If you wish to enter your plane, all you have to do is start a battle with the bottom plane of the highest rated group of 5. If you win, your plane enters this board and gets to fight upwards against the other 4 planes. The plane formerly on spot 5 drops to the lower table. If you lose, you start against the lowest rated plane of the group below. This process just repeats itself until your planes finishes somewhere. In the rare case that you don’t manage to win against anyone, you just put your plane all the way at the bottom of the lowest group (if that one is full, make a new one). Fighting itself will happen in 3 rounds of 2v2, all viewed from a neutral point of view for physics sake. Battles will be run in standard KSP physics, this isn’t a FAR competition, and it will never be. All fighting will be done by the BDA-AI, therefore the settings of the autopilot play a major role in the success of your aircraft. The actual order in which the battles are fought doesn’t matter, as long as all 3 are fought. If you win 2 your plane gets to move on. Moving up is seen as 1 offensive victory in the spreadsheet. Losing to a plane above is a defensive victory for the above craft. The battles are: - 2 of yours from KSC vs 2 enemy planes from the island runway. - Opposite of the round above. - Both groups of 2 take off from KSC in opposite directions. For the sake of easiness, it is not mandatory to record your battles. I’ll go ahead and trust all of you to be honest and fair in reporting your victories and defeats, if you however do wish to record the battle and provide us with a video, please do! Yes, I will play out and record battles for you. I still highly encourage everyone to do this for themselves. Should you want me to do them for you, do mention it in your submission, and keep in mind that it will take longer this way since I have other stuff to take care of as well! On top of that, I'm not very good at video recording, I can edit but probably won't take the effort to do that...  Mods required: - BDArmory for the latest version of KSP. - PhysicsRangeExtender (should already be installed for BDA to work anyway) - AirplanePlus Text editing any files (eg: raising hitpoints) is very much forbidden and if anyone gets caught doing this, all their planes will instantly be disqualified and the player will be banned from entering the competition again. That’s it! If you have any questions or feel like something could still be improved, feel free to write a comment about it and I’ll look in to it asap. Good luck!
  11. Hi! I was just wondering if anyone knows of a BDA release for KSP 1.6. Hopefully, you do! Bye! P.S. If there are no releases, I know how to get a previous KSP version and use BDA on that.
  12. The grand jewel army forces are in need of modernization so we are now recruiting officers to test and develop weapons. pick a branch(below) to build for. be creative! there are a few rules such as: 1. keep it relatively low part count. 2.no copying designs 3. space branch needs no launchers to get into space ___________________________________________________________________________________________ Branches Space this branch builds ships to fight in space stock only Sea this branch builds ships to fight in the sea BDA permitted Air this branch builds aircraft to fight in the air BDA and airplane plus permitted _________________________________________________________________ I will judge these aircraft versus : other submissions , my craft, and compare maneuverability between aircraft (land support may come soon) Aircraft that have passed @Bottle Rocketeer 500's KS-99SP https://kerbalx.com/BottleRocketeer500/KS-99SP has been approved for high ranking personnel transport however the sparrow is preferred the sparrow by @lapis (me ) not biased but is just easier to handle than the KS99SP https://kerbalx.com/lapis_space_program/Sparrow @TheFlyingKerman's https://kerbalx.com/TheFlyingKerman/LKA-1CIII an exellent recon aircraft.
  13. The Tournament It's that time of year once again, which means time for a new BAD-T. Like the last three BAD-T tournaments, this will consist of 2v2 dogfights featuring WWII-era aircraft battling around and above sites scattered all over Kerbin. Contestants will submit a craft, which will then be pitted against other submitted craft in a standard tournament ladder format, with fights recorded and posted to YouTube. Defeat means a craft is out of the running, success means it moves up to the next bracket. Depending on the number of entries, a second-tier ladder may also be run, featuring craft that lost during the first round of fights. To enter, simply create a WWII themed aircraft. Replicas of real-world craft are permitted, but not required. Craft design, AI configuration and armament are entirely up to you. As long as it follows the rules and looks like it could have been a real WWII-era fighter, it's a valid entry. The following mods are required: FAR 1.5.9.1 Liepmann with ExtremeTrader's KSP 1.4.5 patch. Aviator Arsenal with the KSP 1.4.5 patch. BDAc 1.2.2.2, with DMG_MULTIPLIER = 750 in the GameData/BDArmory/Settings.cfg. BAD-T Props pack ,which requires the FireSpitter .dll Additionally, the following mods are permitted, but optional: B9 Proc wings Procedural parts Take Command (for planes using constructed open cockpits) Adjustable landing Gear Tournament Brackets Aircraft Classes: Entries will fall into one of two categories, Fighters and Heavy Fighters. Fighters are single engine monoplanes. They have one engine. They must have a dry mass of at least 2.5 tons*. They can use up to 100 points worth of engine and armament. Heavy fighters are heavy twin engine monoplanes. They have 2 engines. They must have a dry mass of at least 5 tons*. They can use up to 150 points worth of engines and armament. *Dry mass is the empty weight of the craft, wet mass is the loaded weight of the craft with fuel and ammunition. Resources like Oxidizer and Ore which aren't used as fuel or ammo can be used as ballast and count towards dry mass. Points: Weapons cost their diameter in mm. *This includes decimals – 12.7mm MGs cost 12.7 points each, etc. Engine cost is indicated by the number in their part name. *'B27-D Brutus' costs 27 points, 'B32-D Gazelle' costs 32, etc. Ammo is free, carry as much or as little as desired. Rules: - Craft must have no more than 60 parts. -Only Aviator Arsenal weapons permitted, with the exception of the Ball Turret. -No more than six of any one type of weapon. Multiple different weapons is allowed. -Only BADT engines allowed (Widshed, Brutus, Gazelle, Wizard, Buzzer, Foxhound, & Falcon). -No aerospace grade parts (radiators/heatshields/airbrakes/etc) allowed; (Ore/RCS tanks allowed as ballast, but not as structural components). -No reaction wheels. Cockpit reaction wheels must be disabled. -Craft must have at least 1 Kerbal, either in a cockpit, or a constructed open cockpit using a command seat. -No BDAc armor panels. Intrinsic part armor thickness is to remain at 10. -Constructed cockpits must be safe, something that a sane (you, not Jeb) pilot would want to sit in. -Part clipping is allowed, within reason. No clipping resource containing parts into other resource containing parts please. Clipping ballast parts into ballast parts is permitted. -If using P wings, keep wing thickness for main wing pieces at least 0.120. -Craft must include a visible Communications Antenna – this is AA's combination AI pilot and weapon manager. -AI min altitude must be at least 300m. -Craft should have at least 15 minutes of fuel. -If both craft on a team run out of ammo, they forfeit the match, as they can no longer shoot down the opposing team. -All entrants will be required to shoot down a Test Dummy craft to certify flight-worthiness in FAR – this is basically to ensure your craft can take off and do maneuvers without a RUD. -No text editing of craft files. -The Eidahill Clause: While cheesy Min-Maxed designs that take advantage of loopholes or game exploits may be technically legal, I ask that contestants respect the spirit of the competition, not just Rules As Written, when designing their airplane. Submissions: Craft must be submitted by the deadline, 11:59 PM, Friday, October 26th. One entry per person. If something goes wrong during submission, or you realize your craft is not rules compliant and needs some changes, contact me via PM. Otherwise, all submissions are final. To submit, upload your craft to KerbalX or similar, and sent me the download link via PM. Sharing links to your crafts in the thread is fine, but only craft I've been sent via PM will count as entries. F.A.Q. Can I submit more than one craft? -No. Entering more than one craft runs the possibility of your entries fighting another of your entries, and the purpose if this tournament is to see how your craft do against other people's designs, not your own. However, if there are not enough entries to fill a roster, secondary entries may be accepted at my discretion. I submitted my craft already, but it (accidentally) breaks the rules, what happens now? -If your craft is an illegal design, I will PM you, and give you the chance to correct the design and re-submit. I've updated my craft after submitting it, can I resubmit? -No, simply to keep the logistics of managing entries simple, one submission per person. You can edit your submission's KerbalX upload or similar as long as it retains the same name before the deadline, but no submitting multiple craft. Can I submit a biplane? -No. Biplanes were mostly obsolete by 1940, and the spirit of the tournament is modern WWII era designs. Can I submit a jet? No. While WWII saw the emergence of first generation jet powered aircraft, for balance reasons all craft should be propeller powered. I'm bad at building craft in FAR, should I still submit something? -Yes. Sure, there will be some entries that are hyper-competitive, but for the most part, this tournament is aimed at having fun, watching submitted craft fight bravely and die gloriously. For the most part FAR is fairly simple to use, but don't be afraid to ask for advice. The rules said something about constructed cockpits? - Take an External Command Seat and use parts to build an open cockpit around the Kerbal (proc parts are good for this). Just make sure it's a cockpit someone other than Jebediah would be comfortable sitting in. Tips & Tricks -Manually fly your craft at least one before handing it off to the AI. This lets you make sure it flies as you expect, and is capable of hard turns/coming out of a dive with out ripping a wing off. -Determine what the minimum altitude your aircraft needs to pull out of a dive from is, and set the AI accordingly. Last thing you want is for the AI to lithobrake your plane during a battle. -Test your craft against the Dummy. The dummy is an aggressively sub-optimal design; if your craft cannot shoot down the Dummy, it is unlikely to perform well against tuned competition aircraft. -Check your wing strength/mass settings. Right click on a wing part to see a slider to adjust the wing's mass and strength. Be careful not to increase or decrease it too much, though. Too little strength and the wing will snap off during maneuvers, too much mass and the plane becomes unnecessarily heavy. -Ammunition is heavy, so consider how much you need. Having a single box of ammo per cannon is generally enough, while machineguns can usually get away with one box per 2 guns. That said, remember that running out of ammo essentially counts as being shot down by the opposing side. -The AI is not by any means a proficient marksman. It may be a good idea to lower max gun range down to something in the 800-1250m range. True, the AI might hit something at 2.5km out, but chances are all it will be doing is wasting all of your ammo at that range. -FAR changes how the CoL indicator in the SPH works; it now shows the center of aerodynamic pressure of the aircraft, rather than the sum output of all lift generating parts. Instead of trying to line up the CoL and CoM indicators, try to align the main wing with the CoM. -Pressing F2 in the editor brings up aim vectors for all guns on a craft, useful for gun calibration if you i.e. want weapons to converge at a certain distance.
  14. I have created a fresh new Topic to maintain BDAc continuity. For any past forum posts please refer to the Old BDAcTopic here: The old BDAc Forum Topic has been locked by the topic owner. Please note that Physics Range Extender and Module Manager are required dependencies for BD Armory Continued Also be advised that using the World Stabilizer mod will cause problems with PRE as it has it's own world stabilization code we refer to as Black Spell ... Only solution to this is to not use the World Stabilizer mod ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ BD Armory wiki: http://bdarmory.wikia.com/wiki/BDArmory_Wikia BDAc Release Links: Releases link: https://github.com/PapaJoesSoup/BDArmory/releases Issues link: https://github.com/PapaJoesSoup/BDArmory/issues Physics Range Extender (REQUIRED): https://github.com/jrodrigv/PhysicsRangeExtender/releases Papa Joe's Soup Github link: https://github.com/PapaJoesSoup?tab=repositories ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS: Importing craft that are armed into the new BDAc is going to mess with the weapons as the craft file that has been saved will have values in it that are no longer in BDAc as well as not having the new variables that are in BDAc The current release of BDAc is a maintenance release, and only KSP compatibility updates will be performed going forward. The Mod is NOT dead, though, as others have taken the reigns of keeping BDA alive and well. with that said: Please Check out the New BDA+ NOTE. BDA for Runway Project (now BDA+) is a separate fork by Brett Ryland and others. New forum Post for BDA+ is here: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ TL;DR - DO NOT IMPORT OLDER CRAFT WITH WEAPONS ON THEM FROM VERSIONS OF BDAc PRIOR TO THE ONE YOU ARE INSTALLING ..... REMOVE ALL BDAc AND BDAc ADDON PARTS AND THEN IMPORT YOUR CRAFT See spoilers below for release notes, videos, Github issues and download links The BDAc family of mods were all created by @BahamutoD, and in his absence, we have taken it upon ourselves to keep the explosions flowing For anything related to BDAc or mods in the BDAc family, I refer you to the Github link for Papa Joe's Soup (Slightly Over Used Parts) where there is listed download links for the mods in question ... If you have questions or concerns, feel free to post here and the team will do our best to assist you I also refer you to our in game KSPedia where you will find a wealth of information on the operation of BDAc Be aware that forcing opengl will result in many shaders showing as pink ... the only solution is DO NOT force opengl If you think you have come across a gremlin or a bug with BDAc or any of the mods we maintain, feel free to post here, however we ask that you also take a look at the issues list on Github to see if your problem has been addressed. We use the built in Github issues tracker to keep record of bugs, enhancements and feature requests as it is difficult to keep track of bug reports and all the great ideas that the community have come up with on the forum (things can get buried and lost under newer posts) Please note that only the most recent version of BDAc is supported at this time and that BDA needs PhysicsRangeExtender to work properly: https://github.com/jrodrigv/PhysicsRangeExtender/releases Also, to correctly install BDAc, first download the latest release from the BDAc releases link posted below (not the source download) and then extract the BDArmory folder contained within the zip file and place it into your KSP/Gamedata folder ... Do not, I repeat, do not place the Gamedata folder contained within the BDAc zip into your Gamedata folder as this will cause umpteen million conflicts to arise as the BahaTurret pickle looks for textures, configs and whatnot in specific places In regards to CKAN ... It is our policy not to provide support for CKAN as we have no control over the process beyond listing when deploying to SpaceDock. If you are having issues with CKAN we request that you take it up with CKAN, otherwise follow the clear instructions posted above and if your issue continues then feel free to ask the team for assistance In regards to support, KSP.log please (Found in the same directory as the KSP executable ... this file is overwritten each time you start KSP ... upload this file to a filesharing site such as dropbox and post the link so the team can take a look) ...

  17. KTech Download at the bottom of this post. This mod adds a few weapons and items from Star Trek and Star Wars, as well as a couple of new and original SciFi weapons like a Space missile and a super powerful Rail gun. Some of these parts are super OP, and are meant for pure unadulterated fun and destruction! Star Trek: Photon Torpedo - Functions like the HE-KV-1. It is radar guided with built in RCS, it can maneuver in a vacuum and has a 1000km range. Federation Phaser Turret NX Class Phaser Cannon Klingon Phaser Cannon Star Wars: R2D2 - Advanced probe core with MechJeb capability, and full BDAc weapon manager! Turbo Laser Cannon Light Laser and Medium Laser (Star Wars theme... not actually in Star Wars) Turbo Laser Turret (almost too OP, may change) This is not copied from another mod, the cfg and sound is original. I did however get the idea from @Aerolfos, creator of Future Weapons The following 3 weapons are also from SpannerMonkey(smce) X10 Laser X10b Laser X10 Double Laser Halo: M808 Scorpion tank and 2 turrets. Original: Rail Gun Turret - Three skins available Stock, Canadian CADPAT (replica), Snake and Dragon Scales (with texture switching provided by SM Industries), this is an extremely powerful Tank style/turret mounted rail gun, with a muzzle velocity of 5km/sec and a range of 150km!! Truly Devastating!! S1 Space Missile - Three color options (if SM Industries is installed) Functions like the HE-KV-1, it's a radar guided space missile with built in RCS, can maneuver in a vacuum, has a 1000km range, and can survive re-entry! Upgraded Target Cam with 200km range! Upgraded Rover wheels... limited production, test of product viability. Space Radar - *Most important part!! This is needed for super long range targeting in space, has a 1000km range, and will only function in a vacuum or in extremely thin atmosphere above 27,000m. Dependencies: BDArmory for Runway Project v1.4.6.2 or higher (USE THE NEWEST VERSION) Module Manager Optional Dependencies: For S1 Space missile M808, and Rail Gun texture switching, you will require SM Industries For R2D2 MechJeb functionality, you will need MechJeb2 Model creators: @SpannerMonkey(smce) - The Two Phaser Turrets, Photon Torpedo, Modifications to R2D2, RailGun Turret, S1 Space Weapon, TL Cannon, and the line of X10 Laser Cannons. @BahamutoD - Original creator of BDArmory. BDAc Models used in: Space Radar, KE Round Box, Klingon Phaser Cannon, and the Turbo Laser Turret. @Devo - R2D2 Model. Special Thanks: @DoctorDavinci For your work on the Space Radar plugin (now part of BDAc) and for answing so many of my questions! @jrodriguez, @Papa_Joe, @gomker @Eidahlil for implementing every single fix and tweak I have asked for (especially the radar modification)... you guys are truly spoiling me!

  19. HP and Armor Editor for BD Armory v1.1 I now present for your approval the preliminary release of the standalone HP and Armor Editor for BD Armory Continued v1.1 Edit by part type in the SPH/VAB - All Parts, Command, Wings, Control Surfaces, Fuel Tanks and Ship Hull Still a few glitches such as having to click the Save Armor button twice to save the number entered if setting the armor above 500 (this is due to the HP and Armor auto-calculations in BDAc) as well as Engines, De-couplers and Launch Clamps are excluded from editing due to the code in BDAc that causes degradation of performance on any part that has an engine module or de-coupler module as it takes damage INCORPORATED INTO DCK FUTURETECH
  20. For about a year now I've been looking a mod to give space ship/fighters "combat AI" to move ships around, turn guns to face and to dodge incoming fire. Are there any fighter/ship AIs out yet for use with BDA these days?
  21. Who wants to play a game of Kerbal war? STATUS: OPEN! TO DO: Update map, add some rules, update launch site spreadsheet General -All launch sites are based around the sea to the west of the KSC. So I've put together a modlist for KSP 1.3.1 with the following mods: Rules and Map Can all be found here. How to play 1) Message me that you would like to participate -If I acknowledge your message then continue. 2) Download the "Actuallywar" save in the folder KSPWAR/Saves/INITIAL-CAZON-1/ 3) Read over the rules while the world downloads 4) Once you've completed reading the rules and asking any questions I'll send a link with some custom configs for some mods. 5) I've already placed troops at my bases, you may start your initial phase and move on to your first turn. 6) When you've finished your first turn upload the save to the KSPWAR/Saves/ and name it PlayerName-TurnName and we'll go back and forth passing saves from there.

  23. Alright, here is the second Modern Fighter Jet Challenge! Now with MOAR REALISM! REQUIRED ADDONS BDArmory 1.0.0 Ferram Aerospace Research(FAR) Advanced Jet Engine(AJE) Kerbal Weapons System (KWS) Dynamic Deflection ALLOWED ADDONS B9 Procedural Wings. DCK Camo AirplanePlus Tweakscale RULES: Engines: Structural/Aerodynamic: Weapons rules. AI limits: General rules No space-grade parts(RCS, reaction wheels, RAPIERS, oxidiser tanks, Radiators, heat shields, etc) RTG's are allowed. No drones No Sci-Fi planes No armor. No unreasonable part clipping. *For those who don't want to have BDA, AJE, or FAR installed* I will put BDA weapons on your craft for you. For FAR, if I can fly properly in FAR (last times second place plane was originally stock, it happened to work in FAR) I will take it. Since the only real user-noticable change In AJE is reduced thrust by about half, I will remove fuel to the minimum for your airplanes class, unless you want otherwise. I will try to keep the CG in the same location. LEADERBOARD: 1. 2. 3. 4.
  24. My ships! coming soon Cleared all of the craft out. due to KSp updates, Will start adding some back soon
  25. The is the Open Beta for the next release of BDArmory Continued. This next release (version 1.1) will be a complete refactor of the damage model, ballistics and explosive force calculations. Our goal was to model realistic values for ballistics, bullet penetration explosive damage and force. All formulas used to calculate these values are based on real world values and physics formulas with balancing to account for game play. Beta Release #1 : https://github.com/PapaJoesSoup/BDArmory/releases/tag/v1.1.0 Fixes Too many to list - see this tag in get for issues being corrected and comprehensive lists : https://github.com/PapaJoesSoup/BDArmory/labels/Fix Pending Release New Features Main issue tracking changes : https://github.com/PapaJoesSoup/BDArmory/issues/307 Damage is no longer tied to heat or temperature of the part, a completely new "Hitpoint" health system has been created. By default all parts will have their Maximum Hitpoints calculated based on part area and density Documentation : https://github.com/PapaJoesSoup/BDArmory/wiki/1.2.1-Hitpoints-&-Armor For Modders: you can override these values by using the following in your part config or MM patches MODULE { name = HitpointTracker ArmorThickness = 120 maxHitPoints = 100000 ExplodeMode = Never } Example baseline values for balancing : 10,0000 hitpoints for Tank Hulls, 100,000 hitpoints for larger boat hulls. Armor The Armor and penetration system has been completely redone, no longer needing custom layers or parts. All parts will have a default value of 10 "Armor" units to approximate default thickness of metal composed of the part. Armor can be changed in the VAB or by the same method above with a MM patch. Any part can have Armor if you choose, allowing for more flexibility. There will still be dedicated Armor panel parts for those who choose a different build path. Armor will stop bullets and limit damage depending on the amount present and bullet mass and velocity Bullets Documentation https://github.com/PapaJoesSoup/BDArmory/wiki/1.2.2-Bullet-Configuration Bullet configurations now have real world values for caliber and mass. Ballistic coefficients are calculated in code based on these values for a more accurate drag model Most damage values for weapons have all been moved to the bullet configurations. This will now make weapons more consistent with same ammunition. BULLET { name = 30x173HEBullet caliber = 30 bulletVelocity = 1180 bulletMass = 0.3880 //HE Bullet Values explosive = True tntMass = 0.3104 blastPower = 2 //deprecated, use tntMass, left in for legacy support blastHeat = 3.7 //deprecated, use tntMass, left in for legacy support blastRadius = 2.5 //deprecated, use tntMass, left in for legacy support apBulletMod = 3 //not yet implemented bulletDragTypeName = AnalyticEstimate } Weapon Configurations All damage values are now calculated from the bullet configuration. All other value are deprecated. ammoName and bulletType are required MODULE { name = ModuleWeapon .... ammoName = 30x173Ammo bulletType = 30x173Bullet .... Decal Bullet Hits Bullet strikes currently have two sizes for (90mm below / above) This is a very early feature and has much work left to be done (i.e. mapping bullet decals to curved surfaces properly) Explosive Damage @jrodriguez to provide more details on the changes of the explosive detonation code New value of tntMass is replacing all other values for explosive in bullet configuration.
