  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. 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.

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. 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 Final Update on PC On June 24th, 2011, Kerbal Space Program 0.7.3 was publicly released. Back then the game looked very different with a very limited parts catalogue, no celestial objects except Kerbin which would not rotate, and not even a proper Sun, just a light source at an infinite distance. No one ever expected that this modest game, created by a small studio in Mexico City with no experience in videogames, would turn into a worldwide phenomenon that brought space exploration closer to our households. Therefore it is almost unfathomable that in a couple of weeks we will be celebrating the game’s 10th anniversary. And on that day, we are releasing Kerbal Space Program 1.12: On Final Approach, our 12th major free update! Kerbal Space Program 1.12: On Final Approach is going to be special in many ways. We are not only packing this free update with a massive amount of new content, player requests and all sorts of fixes, but it is also our thank you letter to everyone in our community who supported us along the way and made our dreams come true. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, or rather move on to the next chapter. So yes, On Final Approach is the last major planned release for Kerbal Space Program. While there may still be occasional minor updates to address bug fixes as needed, Squad’s efforts will now shift towards joining Intercept Games in the development of Kerbal Space Program 2. So what can you expect on June 24th with Kerbal Space Program 1.12: On Final Approach? We’ve already shown a couple of things in our last issue of KSP Loading, and now it is time to reveal the other main changes. So buckle up! Craft and Save Loading Improvements On Final Approach includes a huge revamp to craft and game save loading. Search, foldering, and cross-save access are added to craft loading in the editor, and search has been added to craft loading on the launchpad/runway and to the quicksave loading dialogue. This will help you to better sort out your saved craft and games, especially if you have a ton of them. This feature will also allow you to load or save craft with different game saves. Alarm Clock App One of the main features in the upcoming 1.12 update is the Alarm Clock app. With this tool, you will be able 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. Additionally, you will also be able to pick alarm sounds to go with your alarms, cool right? Maneuver Creator App The Maneuver Creator app is another of the main features within On Final Approach. With it, you will be able 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. This will cut down time spent fiddling with maneuver nodes and enhancing the accuracy of your space maneuvers, but you’ll need a level 3 tracking station to use it, so you’ll still need those maneuvering skills for your first visit to the Mun. Wheel Improvements Wheels have undergone major tuning. We have fixed previous issues with the stress tolerance and we have made some improvements to the suspension and friction model. Additionally, wheels now have a few new tweakable controls that will help reduce how easy it can be to flip rovers and other wheeled vehicles. 10th Anniversary Fireworks! What better way to celebrate this milestone than to launch bright and colorful fireworks into the air! With this update we will be adding two firework launchers for you to attach to your vehicles - one with 8 bursts, and one with 32 bursts. These pyrotechnic devices will also be highly configurable, with different trail and burst types for you to choose from, as well as the ability to tweak the force, the duration, star size, launch velocity, explosion delay and the colors of the fireworks at any given time. Fill up those canisters and let the party begin! New Slim Suit A brand new sleek-looking spacesuit, inspired by the feats of the private aerospace sector will be available with the upcoming update. As with the other spacesuits available in the game, the Slim Suit will be available in three different variations: black and grey, grey and orange, as well as blue and grey. This covers the main features coming in Kerbal Space Program 1.12: On Final Approach. But there are plenty of smaller ones coming in this update, check them out with us when it releases on the 24th! KSP 2 Since our last KSP Loading, we also got a preliminary glimpse at the new Kerbal Space Center to be found in Kerbal Space Program 2. It surely looks gorgeous and would make Mortimer, Gene and the rest of the KSC crew proud. Check it out if you haven’t! 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!

ModuleWheelBase.useNewFrictionModel, ModuleWheelSteering.useNewModel, ModuleWheelSuspension.useDistributedMass must be set to true in the Part Modules cfg for each part that wants to use the new functionality. * Failed reflection calls to incompatible or otherwise invalid mods are now handled, so they don't stop the game from loading. * Custom suits now show the corresponding icon in all relevant screens. * Added an additional useCustomThreshold field to ModuleOrbitalSurveyor. Setting it to true will allow the module to recalculate the minimum and maximum altitudes beyond the stock values. * When multiple versions of the same assembly are present, KSP now makes sure only the most recent one is loaded. * Tuned the logic to calculate space object resource percentages based on the lowRange and highRange values, preventing space objects from always having > 80% resources regadless of the range values. * Add a GameEvent for revert to launch that returns the current FlightState. * Add ability for modders to be able to turn off the color changer UI. * Add ability to support multiple lights from the single ModuleLight instance. * Allow ModuleLight's toggle action to simultaneously toggle other animations. =================================== Making History 1.12.0 =================================== +++ Parts * Kerbodyne S3-S4 adapter's dark stripe now matches with the S3 and S4 tanks. * Add 1.25m Engine plate. * Fix SM-25 gap at bottom of the doors. +++ Bugfixes * Kerbodyne KE-1 Mastodon Liquid Fuel Engine's shroud clipping fix * Fix spacing in Mission Builder for 'Seed' field in the SAP. * Fix max speed on M1-F wheels. * Fix EP-12's preview attach nodes size. * Fix MEM's rcs' SFX volume. =================================== Breaking Ground 1.7.0 =================================== +++ Localization * Fix unnecessary colon for one string in Spanish only. * Fix for spelling mistake in Duna's stone objects, English only. 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.
