I was able to do so with RemoteTech back in KSP 1.10.1 but I can't seem to find the code or option for it in any of the files and I'm not tech savvy enough to write my own plugin for this. Can anyone help, or has this been asked before?
I have a question that pertains to the new comm-sat mechanics that were added to the game recently. I know that unmanned ships need to have a path to the KSC in order for them to be controlled, and that manned spacecraft can control themselves regardless of whether they have line-of-sight to Kerbin or not. But when controlling unmanned spacecraft, will any Kerbal pilot with a connection do? For example, say I had two spacecraft, one remote controlled, and another with a Kerbal crew, and neither of them have a path to the KSC; is it possible to control the unmanned spacecraft using the Kerbal pilots in the manned spacecraft? Or do I have to set up relay satellites in order to establish a connection back home before I can control the unmanned satellite?
Hi guys, I made a short video yesterday that hopefully explains how to evenly space out satellites around an orbit when creating communication satellite constellations. I've also written a short document that covers the maths in more detail, but still at a high school level to help people create their own commsat constellations. I'd love it if I could get some feedback on both (I've already realised that I should have used the term transfer orbit in the video rather than parking orbit).
