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. Check out this patch's changelog for further details: =================================== v1.12.2 ============================================================ +++ Improvements * Set the default value of Override Safety Check to false, in both cheats. * Implement Steam folder for subscribed craft. * Add locking functionality to docking node rotations allowing autostruts to cross over docked nodes that are both locked. * Add the current game name to the directory browser Current game label. * Selecting the same target body in the maneuver tool dropdown forces the tool to recalculate. * Add a Loop mode of None-Restart to the KAL.

Happy launchings!
so I used the new ground anchor to create a core point for a Mun base I'm making, and I've landed and attached the living module, as seen in the left photo, however, whenever I quicksave and load, switch to a far away craft and back, or just boot up KSP, the anchor and the module are suddenly floating, as seen in the picture on the right, and it only happens when the module is docked, even if I undock the module after the fact, the core just remains floating, has anyone else experienced this bug?
Welcome to our official newsletter, KSP Loading…! If you want to learn about all the current developments of the KSP franchise, then this is the place to be! And now, let’s talk about everything KSP! Kerbal Space Program Update 1.12 on PC Coinciding with the game’s 10th anniversary, Kerbal Space Program is getting ready for its 12th major free update since its official release, and it’s going to be epic! This update will be packed with brand new content such as new parts, features, revamps, and more! Buckle up, and let’s learn about some of the content that will be included in this upcoming update. Eeloo and Pol Texture Revamps With update 1.12, our effort to revamp all the celestial bodies within the Kerbal solar system will finally come to an end. Eeloo, the distant frozen dwarf planet, and Pol, the smallest natural satellite of Jool, are now looking better than ever with new high-quality textures & shaders. Surely many astronauts will take this opportunity to revisit them and explore what lies within these remote destinations. Revamped and Rotating Docking Ports All the docking ports have gotten a well deserved aesthetic revamp. Among the bundle of requested features & quality of life additions we’re including in the 1.12 update, we are giving players the ability to rotate docking port collars added to docking ports. Lining up attached craft perfectly has never been easier! New Solar Panels This update will also include 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. SP-10L 1x5 Photovoltaic Panels This large retractable solar panel is an enhanced version of the SP series. With a five fold increased solar array area, the SP-10L will provide improved electrical charge generation. This solar panel also includes a case to protect this sensitive technology when it is not being used. OX-10L 1x5 Photovoltaic Panels The OX-10L 1x5 is a larger version of the OX-4 series of solar panels. It includes advanced heat radiators, and a deploying bracket to keep the panels safe when launching, although these panels are not retractable once deployed, so beware… OX-10C Photovoltaic Panels The crown jewel of the new circular retractable solar panels, the OX-10C provides a great output of electrical charge with a very decent solar array area. When folded it is compact and easy to transport, but although it deploys very graciously, it won’t retract back. SP-10C Photovoltaic Panels The SP-10C photovoltaic panel also has a circular design that folds itself on command, making it an excellent alternative if you’re looking for versatility. Ground Anchor The Ground Anchor is 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. The deployable ground anchor will work as other deployable parts, so it will have to be put into a Kerbal’s inventory and then use the deploy functionality to have it successfully anchor itself to the ground in order to build a base from. KSP 2 Kerbal Space Program 2 has also had a few developments since our last KSP Loading. For instance, last week we released the third episode of the KSP 2 feature series, which delves into Intercept Games' mission to onboard the next generation of space industry experts with new tutorials, UI/UX improvements, quality of life features, and more. Additionally, in the past few months we have released two additional dev diaries for KSP 2, including a very interesting and informative look into what a game producer actually does in the development process of a title. And, if you've ever wanted to dive into the technical side of KSP 2's development, this dev diary goes into the intricacies and challenges of drawing accurate orbits that look stellar, and how orbit tessellation turned out to be the solution to this problem in KSP 2. Finally, don’t forget to check out the Kerbal Space Program 2 - Show and Tell Highlights from February & March, where the KSP 2 team has shared some really neat footage of some of the stuff they’ve been working on recently, like new power generation modules for colonies, colony fuel factories, new engine exhaust effects, and some amusing kerbal skin experiments. Remember, you can share and download craft and missions on Curse, KerbalX, the KSP Forum and the KSP Steam Workshop. That’s it for this edition. Be sure to join us on our official forums, and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Stay tuned for more exciting and upcoming news and development updates! Happy launchings!
