  1. So I've come across a problem that I suspected, but haven't encountered until now. I opened some Tantares files in Blender for some reference for a mod I'm working on and, when examining the mesh, I discovered that it somehow looked smooth without modifiers. The only difference I see in it vs. my own is that mine uses Subdivision Surface and Tantares has no modifiers. This makes sense as these modifiers probably dont work in KSP, right? Here's the comparison, sorry I don't know how to include images in the body of the post. https://imgur.com/a/GYBlXhK So here's my ma
  2. I'm still a little unfamiliar with 3D modelling (I've been doing it for about 3 days) and I've made a couple basic-looking pods and such. I would like to add a bunch of wires and pipes on the model but find that, at least as far as I know, there isn't a good way to go that. Some shapes I'm having a difficulty making is basically anything curved. Anyone have a good tutorial on how to get better acquainted with these tools? Also, for fun, here's what I'm working on
  3. Hey yall, What are some good resources to learn how to make animated parts?
  4. I will probably add a few assorted blocks as "turbopumps" Something real dumb I've put minimal time into! More deets to follow..... Plans Cubic fuel tank 1.25m SL engine 1.25m Vac engine 1.25m Cubic 1.875m tank Vac and SL 1.875m engine Command pod; both sizes Probe core, both sizes Other bills and bobs that seem helpful All jokes aside, if anyone has suggestions they would be greatly appreciated :-)
  5. Hello everyone this is my first post on this site and yes I am here because i need help, Recently i discovered (old) KSP Blender addon that allows you to import .craft models to blender, but i cannot do that due to the error There are my specs KSP (previous 1.3.1 on steam) Windows 10 Blender 2.83.2, here is my kspdir.txt direction D:\Steam\steamapps\common\Kerbal Space Program\ (note that Blender and KSP are on the second D: Drive) and here is my error ###### Traceback (most recent call last): File "D:\blender\2.83\scripts\addons\io_object_mu-master\import_craft\imp
  6. Hallo allerseits, Ich lerne gerade Blender. Nach meinen ersten abgeschlossenen Projekten möchte ich das Modellieren, Animieren und Texturieren verbessern. Daher möchte ich meine Unterstützung beim Erstellen von Modellen für KSP-Add-Ons anbieten. Wenn jemand Interesse an meiner Hilfe hat, können Sie mich gerne kontaktieren. Ich bin 28 Jahre alt, studiere Technik und arbeite in meiner Freizeit mit Blender. Früher habe ich viel KSP gespielt, aber jetzt habe ich mehr Spaß beim Erstellen Dies ist meine ArtSation-Site: https://christianschuhmann.artstat
  7. Ok, so a few weeks ago I made a thread asking for help with 3D printing craft, since Eucl3D is sadly gone. People suggested I use @taniwha 's blender .craft importer. UNfortunately, Blender is giving me errors when I try to install it and I can't seem to find a fix either in the forums or Reddit. I also tried with @Dasoccerguy 's add-on, which I can actually install, but it gives me errors whenever I try to actually import a craft. I found one potential fix, but it didn't do anything (I have also tried with older versions of craft files and the same thing happens). I'm very committed to doing
  8. Hi, i downloaded this addon for blender to import ships from ksp because i want to make animations but every time i try to import .craft files i get this error. https://imgur.com/a/bJAhy I've tried a couple of fixes listed by others in the comments of the original post, but none of them seem to have worked. (Most of them were Mac and i am using Windows 10). Does anyone know what's wrong here? Is there a newer version of this plugin? Last update seems to be around 2 years ago. Also, im using Blender 2.78 and KSP 1.3 without mods.
  9. I am making a command pod, it's 2.5m diameter, 2.7m long, houses 4 kerbals. How do I improve it? What else do I need to add. I understand I would need to add windows, on the opposite side.Any advice would be greatly appreciated...
  10. I'm quite new to this forum even I join for quite a long time so I'm not sure is this the right place to ask. Anyways, I trying to create a KSP animation but I stuck at one problem. I couldn't find any Kerbal model that I can use which look like in game one. Nor I could make one that look appealing enough. And I wonder is there a way to get Kerbal model from the game/game's folder itself. Though this model would still be courtesy of Squad ,I'll use it only for the animation and I'll credit them as well. Can anyone help?
  11. I just started making custom parts, I would love to have a detailed guide on making parts like solar panels and engines from start to finish. I have basic experience with blender, But I am lacking in texture skills (I know how to do it, I need more info). I would need a in depth Guide to making detailed textures. My focus will mainly be engines, I need to know how to make animations for engine gimbal and solar panels, and how to make engine shrouds. I would also like a guide to making part variants, They are so cool but so hard to understand in Blender/Config files As for config e
  12. So I´ve downloaded this material here: https://www.blendswap.com/blends/view/68707 and I tried to apply it to a project I’m making, I am a beginner on blender, and the material is not even close to what it is supposed to look like. at first, everytimei rendered it just showed up brown with no texture on, then i read on a forum to activate UV maping, and so i did, there wasn’t anything there so i clicked the plus button to create one and now it stays like this: http://prntscr.com/n2b90h I dont know what to dooo ;-; Help!
  13. While I've been away, I've given Blender a fair shake. Check these renders and models out. I'm sure I've done other works, but these were what I've felt were done enough to upload somewhere Procedural Earthlike with Rings More angles at https://imgur.com/a/VreBjiU Mechwarrior Locust cockpit Procedural Marslike PBR test - Rubik's Cube
  14. So, I'm making a radial jet engine- think the Vector's way of attaching vs the huge jet's version. How do I set up points in Blender so that it can function with a Gimbal and everything else? I'm around halfway through modelling it. Thanks for any help!
  15. Hello, and I am making Boeing 787 parts for a mod. I am using Blender to model the parts. My problem is how to make the windows flat, because whenever I use the knife tool to cut out the shape according to the 3-view diagam, it still is curved, when it isn't supposed to be that way. Thanks, BottleRocketeer
  16. Do you have unused blender models for KSP ? Here you can post all your works of art that you have given up on/don't have time to finish. Maybe someone else will make/integrate them into a great mod. ORIGINAL POST{outdated}
  17. How can I make 3.125 m parts in Blender? The radius would have more decimal places than Blender can handle. Does anyone have a solution?

  19. I am using blender, and I cannot find a plugin that works for this. The only one I have found Blender won't accept. Do you guys have any way of changing these into those?
  20. Hi all, So I've been having issues trying to rig up a solar array wing so the animation plays fine. My issue is with the expanding/retracting of the solar cells inside the bounds of the endpoint arms. Picture below. With parenting I have it set us as followed: The endcap (B) is parented to (A). The solar arm (C) is parented to the endcap (B) and then the rightmost solar cell (D) is parented to the arm (C). and then the next adjacent solar cell is parented to the solar cell on the right. and so it goes all the way down the line (for 84 cells). So the animation, I h
  21. Hi I'm at a loss as to how to get blender to show the texturing. Last time I appear to have been pushing random buttons while sleep deprived, but a bit more knowledge would help ;-) I've got a screenshot here: http://imgur.com/a/2FrMK I've setup (most of) the unwrapping, generated a colour image, but can't get the rendering to show. I also see a mutilated vertex in the unwrap which I can't seem to delete. Re-unwrapping it just adds another one. Any experts that can shed a light? Thanks Chris
  22. Dear community , after i realised a 3D deep-scale Modell of the Dragon CRS [* see below thread link] ( Deep-scale Dragon-CRS Model Study ) i have to start a KSP Game kompatible (low memory footprint) Model here is the first result. i think that i go later to implement this model for the game. (maybe this winter) yep - another Dragon-CRS model this 3d-model weight now 2.2MB memory > obviously integrate of full Imgur-photo albums dont works more - does anyone know why? < ok whatever here the link 4 the full album ch
  23. Previously, working with Blender, Unity 4.2.2 and .fbx as a medium format, long complicated animations turned out laggy and bloated the resulting model file to something like 2.5-5 Mb. With Unity's 5.x inherent support of .blender files came support for better animation import and compression. I made a PowerPoint style animation which turned out to be very performance friendly and 10 times less weighty than in previous versions of Unity and PartTools. Not all animation types are supported by Unity, things I learned: All objects need to have a scale of x=1, y=1,
  24. I was thinking of dabbling in Blender a bit and making a planet could be a fun project, but the question is: how are textures mapped? Is there a guide anywhere? There are many common types, cylindrical, spherical, etc. Also is there a guide to supported texture types, color, bump, diffuse, etc. ? Thanks! *perhaps I should specify, I'd like to use Blender's texture paint tools to make the textures so I need to emulate how KSP handles it.
  25. Hey all, So I'm trying to figure out how to create an animation for a radiator panel in blender. I would like to know how to parent the various components so that if I rotate a main torque panel at the base, that all the linked radiator panels and scissor linkages move respectively. I tested an animation where the radiator panels are parented to one another (from top to bottom) and animated each radiators via rotation keyframes. I then did the same for the scissor linkages. When deploying the radiator, it seems that it looks OK during the whole animation cycle. However, even tho
