  1. Hello Kerbonauts! Kerbal Space Program 1.12.2 is live! This patch focuses on fixing over 90 bugs and adding a few improvements to the game, such as a locking functionality to docking node rotations that allows autostruts to cross over docked nodes. We are also adding revamps for the LV-T30 Reliant and LVT-45 Swivel liquid fuel engines. Additionally, and more importantly, 1.12.2 includes the previously-teased Ground Anchor - a brand new element in KSP, that when paired with EVA construction, will give players the ability to anchor their vessels to the ground or create a solid foundation for bases. Even though we still may release a minor patch here and there when needed, with this patch we are officially completing the 1.12 update, as well as the sustained development of the original KSP, as we are now shifting gears towards the development of KSP2.

  2. Hello everyone! Today we wear our party helmets to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the first publicly released version of Kerbal Space Program, as well as the launch of our most ambitious free update ever! Kerbal Space Program 1.12: On Final Approach is the last major update of what became one of the most influential space flight simulators ever, but it also marks the beginning of a new chapter in the Kerbal universe. Looking forward to the future, but proud of what KSP has achieved, we want to give players our most sincere thanks. The support you’ve given us throughout all these years has helped to excite and inspire us to bring you the ultimate KSP experience before KSP2 hits the shelves next year. Kerbal Space Program 1.12: On Final Approach is packed with a great deal of content including a brand new ‘Slim’ suit inspired by the feats of the private aerospace sector industry, on-demand disconnecting struts, and rotating docking port collars, just to name a few. This update also includes many new requested features & quality of life additions to improve the user experience of KSP, such as a huge revamp to craft and game save loading menu-system, a large amount of wheel and landing leg improvements, and much more! Rejoice and explore the Kerbal universe once more... you might even encounter some of the new easter eggs and unlockable launch sites scattered around the solar system. Are you ready? Let’s go through some of the update’s highlights below: Maneuver Creator App The Maneuver Creator app is an incredibly useful tool that enhances the accuracy of your space maneuvers by allowing you to quickly generate transfers to other celestial bodies, see upcoming transfer windows and get a good understanding of where you’re going and how much deltaV it will take to get there. Alarm Clock App Use the Alarm Clock app to set alarms for maneuvers, manual time alarms and alarms for various orbital positions, which will certainly come in handy for those long trips that require several burns to complete. New Solar Panels This update also includes 4 brand new photovoltaic panels, including enhanced versions of the SP and OX-4 series, but also two large circular retractable solar panels with very cool deployment methods. 10th Anniversary Fireworks! Celebrate KSP’s 10th anniversary with these highly configurable firework launchers to attach to your vehicles. Choose from different trail and burst types, but also tweak the force, duration, star size, launch velocity, explosion delay, and the colors of the fireworks at any given time. Let the party begin! And more!

You will also be able to download it from the KSP Store if you already own the game. As with every release this thread will be used to bundle all general discussion about the new version so that the forums can continue to actively host threads on other topics as well. CLICK HERE for the official release announcement for Kerbal Space Program 1.12: On Final Approach. Happy launchings! About the Ground Anchor: The Ground Anchor will be a brand new element in KSP, that when paired with EVA construction, will give players the ability to anchor their vessels to the ground or create a solid foundation for bases. Unfortunately we encountered a late bug for this feature, so it will not be included as part of the 1.12 update. We believe we have a fix for it, but it was too late and too risky to do at the last minute. As a result, this feature will be included with the 12.1 patch, so stay tuned.
  3. Hello Kerbonauts! Kerbal Space Program 1.11.1 is live! This patch includes a few improvements to the base game, such as the ability to use multiple kerbals to assist engineers moving heavier parts in EVA Construction Mode. Additionally, the construction panel now shows the manipulation weight limit and the assistants count, which will be useful to embark in larger in-situ engineering projects, plus several other cool things - like a revamp to the MK1 and Mk2 spot lights. The patch is also packed with bugfixes, mostly related, but not exclusively, to the 1.11 Some Reassembly Required update, among a handful of other neat surprises.

  6. Hello everyone! Today we wear our party helmets to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the first publicly released version of Kerbal Space Program, as well as the launch of our most ambitious free update ever! Kerbal Space Program 1.12: On Final Approach is the last major update of what became one of the most influential space flight simulators ever, but it also marks the beginning of a new chapter in the Kerbal universe. Looking forward to the future, but proud of what KSP has achieved, we want to give players our most sincere thanks. The support you’ve given us throughout all these years has helped to excite and inspire us to bring you the ultimate KSP experience before KSP2 hits the shelves next year. Kerbal Space Program 1.12: On Final Approach is packed with a great deal of content including a brand new ‘Slim’ suit inspired by the feats of the private aerospace sector industry, on-demand disconnecting struts, and rotating docking port collars, just to name a few. This update also includes many new requested features & quality of life additions to improve the user experience of KSP, such as a huge revamp to craft and game save loading menu-system, a large amount of wheel and landing leg improvements, and much more! Rejoice and explore the Kerbal universe once more... you might even encounter some of the new easter eggs and unlockable launch sites scattered around the solar system. Are you ready? Let’s go through some of the update’s highlights below: Maneuver Creator App The Maneuver Creator app is an incredibly useful tool that enhances the accuracy of your space maneuvers by allowing you to quickly generate transfers to other celestial bodies, see upcoming transfer windows and get a good understanding of where you’re going and how much deltaV it will take to get there. Alarm Clock App Use the Alarm Clock app to set alarms for maneuvers, manual time alarms and alarms for various orbital positions, which will certainly come in handy for those long trips that require several burns to complete. New Solar Panels This update also includes 4 brand new photovoltaic panels, including enhanced versions of the SP and OX-4 series, but also two large circular retractable solar panels with very cool deployment methods. 10th Anniversary Fireworks! Celebrate KSP’s 10th anniversary with these highly configurable firework launchers to attach to your vehicles. Choose from different trail and burst types, but also tweak the force, duration, star size, launch velocity, explosion delay, and the colors of the fireworks at any given time. Let the party begin!

Kerbal Space Program 1.12: On Final Approach is now available on Steam and will soon be available on GOG and other third-party resellers. You will also be able to download it from the KSP Store if you already own the game. Click here to enter the Grand Discussion Thread for this release. Happy launchings! About the Ground Anchor: The Ground Anchor will be a brand new element in KSP, that when paired with EVA construction, will give players the ability to anchor their vessels to the ground or create a solid foundation for bases. Unfortunately we encountered a late bug for this feature, so it will not be included as part of the 1.12 update. We believe we have a fix for it, but it was too late and too risky to do at the last minute. As a result, this feature will be included with the 12.1 patch, so stay tuned.
  7. So the KSP store has been down for a couple of days and I'm stuck with 1.11.0 and now way to download the updates for the game and DLCs. Any ETA on when the store might be back online?
  8. heeeyyyy so how do i update ksp???? i'm confused.
  9. yaclog-ksp A command line tool based on yaclog for converting markdown changelogs to KerbalChangelog config files. available on github and pypi Installation run: pip install yaclog-ksp Usage Usage: yaclog-ksp [OPTIONS] Converts markdown changelogs to KSP changelog configs. Options: --path FILE Location of the changelog file. [default: CHANGELOG.md] -o, --output FILE Output file to write to. Uses 'GameData/{name}/Versioning/{name}ChangeLog.cfg' by default. -n, --name TEXT The name of the mod. Derived from the current directory by default. --version Show the version and exit. --help Show this message and exit. for example, running yaclog-KSP --path MyLog.md -n "My KSP Mod" would output to GameData/MyKSPMod/Versioning/MyKSPModChangeLog.cfg Input files are in markdown, and use a certain syntax to be readable by the tool. Metadata is included in a table at the top of the file (which row you make the header doesnt matter). Each version is an subheading with the version, an optional date, and the KSP version as a tag on the end in brackets Example Changelog: # Changelog This is the changelog for my cool mod! | modName | MyCoolMod | | ------- | ------------- | | license | CC-By-SA | | website | Example.com | | author | A cool person | ## 1.0.0 - 2020-04-16 [KSP 1.11] First full release ### Fixed - Nyan Cat now has correct music ### Added - Multiplayer ## 0.9.1 [KSP 1.10.1] Supported versions: 0.2.0 beta to 1.10.x ### Changed A very complicated thing that I can't easily explain in bullet points, but this paragraph works pretty well to get the point across! - Another thing that has multiple specific items - this bullet point * and this other one + oh and another one! ### Removed - Herobrine I'm currently working on a command line tool to generate and append to markdown changelogs

  11. Hello everyone! Gear up Kerbonauts, engineers are required for some in situ reassembling! Stack up your inventory with parts and tools in order to prepare for any contingencies. With a reimagining of the game’s inventory system and the introduction of a new EVA construction mode, KSP is here with new content for everyone! Kerbal Space Program 1.11: Some Reassembly Required is the game’s latest major free update and with it, we’re adding some significant and game changing elements that give players added flexibility and a more immersive KSP experience. Pack an inventory for your missions and modify your crafts or even assemble a new vehicle on the spot with the help of your engineers, or bring an EVA Science Experiment Kit and have your Kerbals undertake fun animated experiments. In addition to some new parts, visual enhancements, and some bug-fixing, Some Reassembly Required continues to enrich the KSP experience. Let’s go through some of the update’s highlights below: EVA Construction Mode This mode gives your engineers tools similar to what you find in the VAB/SPH to manipulate parts in their inventory or within their range while on EVA in any location. Need to make some adjustments to your Vallerian SSTO, or build an improvised Munar rover in situ? Now you can! Inventory System Changes This update expands upon the inventory system and gives it deeper meaning and functionality! These changes include the option to carry and stack various parts in your craft’s inventory and adds to the ability of Kerbals to carry an inventory of their own. All while making it easier to get access to and manage all of the inventories on a craft. Just remember to think wisely on what you want to bring with you on a mission… New Lights and RCSs Some Reassembly Required adds new lights parts to the game, including some smaller, physics-less lights as well as a couple of deployable lights that work without the need for an attached craft or EC power source. And not only that, two new smaller Reaction Control Systems are being added to the part repertoire! These smaller RCS are perfect to make your probes, drones or smaller crafts more mobile and versatile. Joolian Moons’ Visual Improvements With this update, we will continue with the overhauling of the rest of the Joolian satellite system with Bop, Vall and Tylo. These moons have been popular destinations for intrepid space explorers and now they will look better than ever before, with high-quality texture and graphic shaders. And more! To learn more you can read the full Changelog here: =================================== v1.11.0 ============================================================ +++ Improvements * Improve version checking for save files to prevent incorrect compatability messages. * Added game setting to enable Ghosted Navigation Markers. These let you see targets behind you by presenting a faded marker on the navball as if you are looking through the navball. * Text in action group labels now moves if truncated so the text can be fully read. * A notification is displayed on the Fairings PAW when it has a flag attached and the sides and edit Fairing options are blocked. * Robotic Controllers like KAL can now be accessed by EVA Kerbals to Play and Stop the Sequence. * Revamped Vall! It now has a low, medium and high quality shaders as well as a new scaled space textures. * Revamped Tylo! It now has a low, medium and high quality shaders as well as a new scaled space textures. * Revamped Bop! It now has a low, medium and high quality shaders as well as a new scaled space textures. * Launchclamps will now default to the earliest stage on a craft. * Added a speed slider to the Axis Groups Binding so players can control how fast a binding will move. The value shown is in % of full axis range per second. * Expanded on the Warp to Sunrise button functionality. It's now available in flight and Tracking Station whenever it makes sense. * Added onscreen tab to Map Filters panel to make it more obvious and changed the behaviour to be click to toggle like the navball tab. * Implemented Menu Navigation on the Action Groups in Flight. * Added new Color Picker for the Kerbal Light Color during Flight. * Parts of the same type and variant can now be stacked in a single inventory slot. Each part has a maximum allowed stack amount. * Change PPD-10 Hitchhiker and Mk3 Passenger Module mass to align with passenger/mass ratio of Mk1 Crew cabin. * Change PPD-12 Cupola Cost and Mass to align with cost/mass ratio of Mk1 Capsule. * Change Mk2 Crew Cabin mass to incorporate wing mass. * Don't put parachutes in the first (launchpad) stage by default. * Crewable part masses revised to account for crew mass and their cargo. * Crew now have mass when on IVA (inside parts) along with their cargo. * The Flag browser now categorizes flags into groups. * Added RocketLabs and Electron flags. * Added EVA Construction Mode. * Amended dV and orbit calcs to use Double precision. * Some large parts cannot be put into cargo containers but can be manipulated in EVA construction mode. * Players can no longer assign the Undock node Action. This has been removed as it was causing confusion with the Decouple node Action in some parts.

  13. Hello everyone! The European Space Agency (ESA) and Kerbal Space Program have come together to bring you brand new content, including the ESA space-suit texture, new parts and variants, and two of their most iconic and groundbreaking missions into the game. Gear up, fuel up and prepare to share horizons with ESA and KSP! Kerbal Space Program 1.10: Shared Horizons is the game’s latest major update aimed to continue with our efforts to enrich the KSP experience. Build a kerbalized version of the renowned and powerful Ariane 5 heavy launch vehicle, visit comets and push the limits of space exploration with a host of new additions to the game that not only will give you more things to do, but also make the game look and perform better with a bunch of bug fixes and quality of life improvements. Let’s go through some of the update’s highlights below: ESA Missions Thanks to our collaboration with ESA, put yourself to the test and carry out KSP versions of the historic BepiColombo and Rosetta missions! Drop a lander module on the surface of a comet and visit the innermost planet of the solar system to study its magnetosphere and surface characteristics, all in the name of science. Best of all, the Making History and Breaking Ground expansions are not required to play these missions! Comets In order to make the Rosetta mission possible, comets now roam the Kerbal Solar System. With beautiful tails and larger dimensions than regular asteroids, comets appear in all game modes and you can take on new career mode contracts to detect and visit them. Be vigilant, because you might even see one that is passing through from interstellar space! New Parts and Variants Kerbal Space Program 1.10: Shared Horizons includes several new parts and variants to match ESA’s style! Decorate your vehicles with a variety of flag parts that can be attached to your liking, take the brand new Magnetometer Boom along with the MTO and MPO to carry out scientific experiments on Moho or beyond, or capture asteroids and comets with the Advanced Grabbing Unit Jr., a smaller and versatile version of the “Klaw”. Additionally, there are also new variants of some tanks, SRBs, the “Poodle” Liquid Fuel Engine, and decouplers; plus, fairings have not only new variants, but some updated functionality as well. Jool and Laythe Visual Improvements The legendary green gas giant and it’s innermost satellite have new high-quality texture maps & graphic shaders, and now look sharper and more realistic than ever!

  15. Hello everyone! Kerbalkind has been exploring the vastness of the Kerbolar System for many years: they’ve explored the surfaces of planets and moons, encountered beautiful landscapes, interesting surface features, performed experiments, and even captured asteroids, all with ingenuity… and many explosions. However, sometimes it’s good to look back and appreciate the wonders of your own home-planet and realize that There’s No Place Like Home! Kerbal Space Program 1.9: There’s No Place Like Home draws its name from the substantial graphical overhaul we’ve given to Kerbin with improved textures and shaders, but that’s far from the only thing you’ll find in this update. Mainly focusing on performance improvements and bug fixes, 1.9 also includes some neat part revamps, a brand new drain valve, and several additions drawn directly from your feedback. Additionally, we’re including some cool stock crafts for the expansions, and advanced control improvements to the blades in the Breaking Ground Expansion. Let’s go through some of the update’s highlights below: Visual Revamps for Moho Dres and Kerbin Kerbin, Moho and Dres have received major visual improvements, with detailed high-quality texture maps. Since there’s no place like home, Kerbin also includes an Ultra Quality shader option for exceptionally sharp visuals. All in all, the Celestial Bodies in the Kerbolar System are looking better than ever. Drain Valve Kerbal Space Program 1.9: There’s No Place Like Home features the FTE-1 Drain Valve. A brand new part that, as the name suggests, is a release valve for parts with drainable resources, such as monopropellant, ore, liquid fuel, oxidizer or xenon. The Drain Valve also allows you to set the drainage over a specific amount of time. Part Revamps The "Thumper" Solid Fuel Booster, "Mainsail" and “Skipper" Liquid Fuel Engines have been given a new look. New geometry, textures and emissive maps make these parts look sharp and realistic. On top of that, the "Mainsail" and “Skipper" are getting a couple of sleek variants for you to choose from. Quality of Life Features Drawing from our players’ feedback, Kerbal Space Program 1.9: There’s No Place Like Home is packed with some useful quality of life features like an adjustment to the time warp system that removes restrictions on warping at certain altitudes; a new cheat menu option that allows you to place your craft above the surface of any celestial body; a search box for the R&D Tech Tree; and a new Screenshot Mode for paused shots, and several others! Blade improvements Breaking Ground players can now enjoy cyclic & collective deflection controls to the blade parts. This will help you build and pilot helicopters and other rotorcraft realistically.

  18. Hello everyone! New gadgets are coming from the Research and Development facility, the kind that will get Kerbals screaming: MOAR BOOSTERS!!! A brand new update is here and with it comes better performance, fresh new features, improved visuals, and new parts being added to our players’ creative repertoire! Kerbal Space Program 1.8: Moar Boosters!!! is an update focused on making the game perform and look better, all while introducing more quality of life features that will improve the overall player experience. We’re also bringing some new solid rocket boosters to the VAB, as well as introducing some exclusive treats for owners of the Breaking Ground Expansion. Let’s go through some of the update’s highlights below: Unity Upgrade Moar Boosters!!! brings an upgrade to the underlying engine of the game to Unity 2019.2, which helped us implement performance and graphics improvements, as well as better rendering performance and a reduction of frame rate stutters. With the new tools that this upgrade provides, we’ll be able to continue refining the game in upcoming updates. Celestial Body Visual Improvements Mun, Minmus, Duna, Ike, Eve and Gilly have new high-quality texture maps & graphic shaders, and now look sharper and more realistic! You will also be able to select the celestial bodies’ shader quality in the settings and set them to low (legacy), medium or high, with improvements being visible across the board. These are just part of the first batch of celestial bodies being overhauled, slowly but surely we will continue this endeavor. Map Mode improvements Map mode received some adjustments too! Now you can use docking mode and stage your craft whilst in map mode. The stage display button (formerly stage mode) now serves as a toggle to show and hide the stage stack, whether you’re in flight or map view, and selected map labels will now persist when going back and forth between map and flight mode. New SRBs! A range of new solid rocket boosters have been added to the game. From the tiny .625m stack size Mite to the titanic 2.5m wide, 144ton Clydesdale, these new boosters will offer a range of versatile solid-fuel options. Making History owners get an extra bonus here too with the “Pollux” and a 1.875m nose cone to fit on top of it. Breaking Ground Exclusives Kerbal Space Program 1.8: Moar Boosters!!! also includes some exclusive content for owners of the Breaking Ground Expansion. A new set of fan blades and shrouds will continue to push the creativity of KSP players even further. Use them to create drones, ducted fan jets, or anything you can imagine. Improvements to the helicopter blades and the robotic part resource consumption have also been included. The latter will now have better info on consumption and improved options for power-out situations. And more!

  20. Hi. I had a long brake in the game. I played in the very modded 1.4 - used TAC, KAS, KIS, relay network, real fuels, near future, preesed node, a lot of mods for an additional experiments, and a other popular modes, but not RSS. Want to return to game. What changes? Am I understand correctly, now relay network, KAS, KIS not requires because part of vanilla game, right? BTW, I bought both DLC to support developers.

  22. Hello everyone! Kerbal Space Program 1.7.2 is live! In this patch we focused mainly on improvements and bug fixes for the Breaking Ground Expansion. We’ve included an animation for Kerbals when they interact with Deployed Science experiments, added sound effects to Laythe’s Geyser and the Cryovolcano on Vall, and some new color variants for the robotic parts. Additionally, now it will be easier to encounter surface features on celestial bodies. However, there’s a very remote possibility that some of the newly generated surface features could appear where an existing craft is positioned. So, although this is unlikely to happen, we do recommend creating a back-up. There are also bug fixes and a few improvements for the base game, particularly for the new axis group system. Now you’ll be able to tie the main throttle to an axis group. Check out this patch's Changelog for further details: =================================== v1.7.2============================================================ 1.7.2 Changelog - BaseGame ONLY (see below for Breaking Ground changelog) +++ Improvements * Redesign the Action sets icon during flight to make the current action number more visible. * Made engine thrust limit, and cargo bay deploy limit, and control surface and airbrake authority limits bindable to axis groups. * MainThrottle axis can be bound, but only in absolute mode. +++ Localization * Fix shadow casting string not displaying correctly if player doesn’t have the Breaking Ground Expansion. * Localize the strings for the Axis Actions in the Settings under the vessel Tab. +++ Parts +++ Bugfixes * Fix kerbal flags clipping into backpacks. * Fix lowest part of vessel calculations for Wheels when coming off rails. * Fix localisation for survey waypoint contract objectives. * Fix NRE in maneuver node editor. * Fix PAW displayDirty not working in the editor. * Fix symmetry counterparts (bow-tie) autostrutting. * Fix cutoff string in recovery science report screen. * Fix null reference on ship load when parts have changed their attach nodes. * Fix missing string in Absolute Control / Incremental Control tooltip. * Fix science value of repeat experiments. * Fix EVA portrait clipping in some situations. * Fix EVA portrait texture being transparent +++ Mods +++Miscellaneous 1.7.2 Changelog - Breaking Ground DLC ONLY +++ Improvements * Implement random orientation for surface features. * Add a scale variable in the rocsdef.cfg. * Increase unfocused range on deployed science Part Action Windows to 20m. * Add screen message for seismometer science if in sandbox game. * Kerbals can now change their future suit emissive colors via their PAW and persists to save game roster. * Kerbals can now interact with Deployed science parts (interaction animation). * Increased interaction range of science experiments on arms so that they match folded arm length. * Add Robotics radio button to SteamWorks Craft exporter.
