The work was originally started by russnash37 who gave a permission to take over and extend his project Supported KSP version: 1.2.2, 1.3.0 License: GNU GPLv3 (included) Source code: on GitHub I've tried to make focus on realism as much as I was able to research the subject so the default settings assume that all kerbals including tourists are trained astronauts wearing G-suits. Pilots are more trained than others, of course. The following G-effects are simulated: Blackouts/redouts Loss of color vision a.k.a "greyout" Tunnel vision as G rises Kerbals grunt while they perform AGSM (anti-G straining maneuver) and take a heavy breath after Blood beating in kerbal's ears on redout (wear headphones with good bass and you'll feel it) G-LOC (G-induced loss of consciousness) Kerbal deaths of a sustained over-G G forces have different severity in four directions: upward, downward, backward, forward, so you may find that a kerbal launched in a rocket stands more G than a kerbal piloting a plane upside down on a circular trajectory. Kerbal's specialization also affects how much he can stand. You can use this mod together with KeepFit by timmers_uk. In this case kerbals' fitness will affect their ability to withstand over G effects (supported by G-Effects v0.2.3+ and KeepFit v0.8.3.3+). Download from SpaceDock (for KSP 1.3.0) Download from SpaceDock (for KSP 1.2.2) If you don't have a joystick it is recommended to use with Analog Control Continued mod for the best aircraft experience Installation: Save the old G-Effects.cfg file if you have changed it. Delete previous version of the mod. Place contents of the zip into your KSP/GameData folder. You'll have to enter the config params you have saved manually into the new version's configuration file because it has several important changes. Stock integration: Stock g-meters and notifications correspond to the mod's state. If you don't need them you may disable "Kerbal G limits" in the game's settings, the main mod's behaviour won't be affected. Kerbal experience and other stock g stats are still ignored. Configuration: Configuration of the mod is done via G-Effects.cfg file. Look through it to have an exhaustive description of its parameters. The major parameters of those you can fine tune are: A common kerbal's ability to resist G effects Restrict video and audio effects to IVA mode only Severity of effects of G forces applied from different directions How much specialization help a kerbal to resist an over-G Disable G-deaths and more The sounds are still a little WIP so you always have an option to disable them via config file if you find'em too annoying. Anyway, after trying the mod please respond to the poll in this thread for I knew which way to move further. Would also appreciate any comments or suggestions. Known issues and limitations: G-forces caused by a ship's rotation don't affect because they are not likely to be severe enough to induce any significant effects. Effects are calculated for the active vessel's crew only. You can switch to another vessel and back and have effects applied as if they have just started. Planned features:
