  1. Starship 2021 Design (S20) Hello! This is the first time I work on a KSP mod, so pls be gentle Right now the mod is still very incomplete, it only has the Ship part of it and even that is still missing a lot of details. Down below you can see all the current features, screenshots, compatibility, dependencies and a longer description about me and mod. First of all, here's a little event I did on my KaioSpace youtube channel when I first released the mod for my Patrons to test: Screenshots: Dependencies: TundraExploration is required for the flaps to function. TexturesUnlimited is required for you to see the shiny metal. CryoTanks are required because of the LqdMethane configuration as of 1.2. (This was an accidental thing, I'll see if I can make it optional for 2.0, alternatively, you can probably delete the tank configs in the Patches folder of the mod) Recommended: CryoEngines - For more accurate Raptor replicas until I make my own. My mod includes a config for the engines and tank contents to be compatible. Waterfall - For the raptor exhaust plumes. HullCameraVDS & NeptuneCamera - For the FlapCam/WindwardCam/DownwardCam if you want to do fancy videos. StarshipLaunchExpansion - For the suborbital clamp and launch tower. Kari's Starship Expansion Project - If you need a booster that fits with my starship until I release my own, Tundra's works too. (I tested both) Installation: Place the KaioSpace folder in the zip file inside the KSP GameData folder. Launch the game! Yup, should be that simple. On CKAN all you have to do is select and install. I have not made a craft file for it yet, but if you're familiar with other Starship mods it should work very similarly. You get an extra option to toggle the vents with an action group on the nose and tank section. I recommend that you set the nosecone to lower fuel Flow Priority so the header tank remains full until its really needed, also balances the weight better on descent. Features usually get released to patreon first a couple days early and then I will make a public release once all testing is done. The next major update (2.0) will likely be the SuperHeavy Booster. NOTE: Starship S20 does NOT have legs so I didn't model any and likely wont until we have a new design at Starbase. If you want to use legs you can use Tundra's legs for the time being. You just need to do some weird symmetry because S20+ has a new skirt design. Download: Spacedock (& CKAN) | Dev Versions: Patreon Roadmap: Trello License: MIT About Me & Mod: I'm Erito. I'm a 3D artist who has been making renders for a while and had the pleasure of joining a group of other Spaceflight artists who have been helping me improve. Since last year I've been addicted to Starship's development and I had the idea to make this mod in January 2021 but stopped because I wasn't making progress learning (because quite honestly the documentation for modding isn't.. very friendly or updated for new devs, but that's a rant for another day). Few months later I restarted the project and here we are. I very regularly post updates on Twitter and my Discord about the mod, tho keep in mind if you join my discord I'm extremely strict with my rules, no memes, only Starship/3D modeling/Chill talk, and I'm also known for not dealing well with younger audiences. RSS/RO Configs: I'm not planing to make RSS/RO configs myself, but you're free to post your configs on this post and I'll list them here below. I will not test them myself (I'm bad at RO lol) so use at your own risk & let me know, also send me pics on twitter!!: Modder Resources for making compatible mods: Changelogs: Work In Progress:
  2. About This is the new thread for B9 Aerospace. The old thread is available here This pack adds a vast selection of new parts, introducing new spaceplane components such as new engines, cockpits, wings and fuselage systems, new structural components for orbital installations and colonies, and so on B9 was originally developed by @bac9, @Taverius, and @K3-Chris, now maintained by @blowfish and @Flashblade with help from many others Requirements The latest version is compatible with KSP 1.8.x. The bundled dependencies are for KSP 1.8.1 and may not work on other versions. All other KSP versions should be considered incompatible. If you are on an earlier version of KSP, however, you may be able to find a compatible version of B9 here B9 depends on several other mods to make it work. They are included in the download, and listed below in the "Dependencies" section. Installation Instructions You can install with CKAN and have the dependencies installed automatically. If you are doing a manual install, open the zip you downloaded, find the GameData folder and copy all of its contents into your existing GameData folder in KSP. If you already have any of the bundled mods, check which one is the latest version. Note that the core and HX packs come with the same version of some dependencies. B9 will not work unless installed correctly. If you're having issues, please verify that you have installed it correctly. Download Three packs are available for download: B9 Aerospace Core Pack - All of the main spaceplane parts B9 Aerospace Legacy Pack - Older Mk1 and Mk2 parts, modular wings. Requires the core pack and all of its dependencies B9 Aerospace HX Pack - Large blocky futuristic parts. Does not require the core pack, comes with its own dependencies Download mirror: S3 Also available on CKAN Changelog FAQ Q: The mod crashes the game for some reason, what can I do? Make sure that everything is installed correctly, your dependencies are up-to-date, and you are on the correct version of KSP. If you can't find the issue read this helpful topic and post the issue in this thread. Be sure to include your logs! If you are quite certain that you have found a bug, you can create the issue on our Github page. Try to provide as much detail as possible - logs, example craft, reproduction steps. Also be sure that the issue is reproducable with only B9 installed. Posts along the lines of "Its not working" or "Everything is broken" won't really help us much. Q: I don't understand a thing in those IVA displays, there are too many buttons and screens Here is a very helpful manual. Q: Why aren't you respecting stock balance? Mods should reference stock for the configs of the new parts, otherwise balance of modded game would be all over the place! While we try to respect stock balance as much as possible, there are a number of inconsistencies in the balance of stock parts that make it impossible to keep balance against every stock part. If something seem very far off of what it should be, feel free to ask in this thread. Q: I can't find those huge blocky parts from the opening image in my part catalog. Why are those missing? They were recently separated into another download as they mostly don't share dependencies with the main part of the mod and as many people prefer not to use them. Q: I can't find the modular wing pieces that are depicted on many screenshots of this mod. Why are those missing? They were removed and will no longer be developed. They are available as an optional download in the Bitbucket repository linked on top of this post, but we do not recommend using them. A far better option is using procedural wings, since you'll have just one part with just one material and just one texture covering any possible wing shape then. Good for performance, good for design freedom, good for looks. Grab the procedural wings here. Q: Why aren't procedural wings integrated into the main B9 package? Because they have entirely separate dependencies and are maintained by different folks. Merging them will only needlessly complicate updates.

  4. v5.1 - Darken the blue panels to match the shade of blue that stock solar panels have. I was never a favor of the original light blue of the original mod panels, they never really matched the stock game. ==================================================================================================================================================== With permission from yogui87, I am able to release my copy of the original LH Circular Panels. It appears the old link from the original thread is gone. I may be one of many few who has still has these solar panels. I have also updated it to included Firespitter plugin (dependency), to change solar panels in VAB or SPH, thanks to @COL.R.Nevilleadditions he added. Download from CKAN or Manual install below. LH Circular Panel Sizes Album Video Showcase v4.0: The solar panels where sitting on my HD and figure I should share them with you all. I just came back to game in 1.4.5, so far the panels work fine, they may need some updates. If anyone thinks the code needs updating and can do it, I can re-upload with the update and give credits. By far this isn't my mod, I just had possession of the mod, these solar panels belong to the community and yogui87 feels the same way. The solar panels come in 3 sizes: small, medium and large. One set comes with protective cover and the other set does not. Action Groups also work. Small EC = 1.6/sec. Medium EC = 3.2/sec. Large EC = 6.4/sec. In career mode, solar panels will unlock in Advanced Electrics, just like the stock solar panels. LH Circular Panel EC Album They come in default Black, but can be changed to Blue. To change color, go in: VAB or SPH, when a solar panel is placed on a craft, right-click and you will get options to change colors. Make sure the solar panel is extend, so you can see the color change. These solar panel were originally designed to recreate Orion type space craft, with the black circular panels. But they can be used for any type space craft or mission. You can find it on CKAN Here is the download link for v5.1: SpaceDock Installation is straight forward. You will also need Firespitter, in order to change the color of the solar panels in the VAB or SPH: https://snjo.github.io/ Just download the Plugin and place it in your GameData folder. This is if you don't already have Firespitter. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The original v4.0 by yogui87, unedited by myself or anyone.

  5. Download via the USI Catalog Page This modpack is a repackaging of the PackRat Rover as well as new parts geared towards planetary exploration. Contents: The Pack-Rat Rover. A modular heavy-duty Rover for all of your planetary exploration needs. Easy to assemble Durable Balanced No twiddly surface attachment - everything snaps in place Integrated RTG and batteries Integrated headlights Glow-in-the-dark tape, for when you forget to turn the lights on... Handles like a dream - Munar speeds up to 20m/s Includes experiment storage lockers Includes a new science component (a data camera) Six customizable equipment slots (demo includes four science crates, a seat, and a data camera] Includes a Rover Delivery System - a cage framework with plenty of surface attachment space, and nodes for both the Rover and stack attachment in a 2.5m form factor (though a 3.75 fits the entire wheelbase of the Rover cleanly) Oh... And it can be completely assembled in the field using KAS... If you are assembling this as a sub-assembly in the VAB, start with the roll cage (it has a spare attachment node on top) If you are assembling this via KAS, start with the Front (and surface attach it to a pylon or something so your Rover does not fly away on minmus or something) The Advanced Extravehicular Suit (AES) What started out as a hardened EVA pod soon transformed into an assortment of small parts to extend it's functionality. Parts included: The AES Commad Pod - Tiny, with full glass IVA Micro SAS Micro RCS thrusters and mini tanks Micro decoupler (so handy!) Electric ducted fan motor (atmo only) - Nifty in that it ties to both the RCS and Engine systems FireSpitter and ModuleRCSFx are both required and included.

  12. NOTE: KSP 1.4 (either full release or latest pre-release, or 1.4.X) is required for SpaceY 1.17 or later. SpaceY Heavy-Lifter Parts Pack Required Dependencies: ModuleManager Cooperates with other mods: TweakScale FAR / NEAR AVC (Add-on Version Checker) Engine Ignitor Community Tech Tree HotRockets! DefaultActionGroups (To enable automatic toggling of SAS light on radial reaction wheels) as of version 1.10 IndicatorLights Part of the NecroBones suite of mods, that work nicely together: Modular Rocket Systems (stock-alike parts pack, NASA-like alternatives, and filling the gaps) SpaceY Heavy Lifters Parts Pack (stock-balanced large rocket parts, 5m parts, large SRBs) Color Coded Canisters (replacement models/textures for stock fuel tanks: prettier, cleaner, and diameter color-coding for the tank end-caps) Fuel Tanks Plus (collection of large stock-like tanks with Color Coded Canister style) ColorFuel Lines (color-selctable fuel lines) Lithobrake Exploration Technologies (lander parts, large chutes/legs/ladders/etc) Do you want more parts!? If you do, you can also install SpaceY Expanded with even more parts, and 7.5m diameter! Contains several unusual or unique features, including some "firsts": Engines with multiple sized fairings, or with conical fairings. Engine clusters with mode-switching for activating/deactivating nozzle groups. Rocket-assisted radial decouplers. Stack size adapters with multiple target diameters (adaptive shrouds). Docking ports with guide-lights. Fuel tanks with automatic shrouds. Thrust plates and adapters with fairings. "Petal" cargo bay. Author: NecroBones Special Thanks: NBZ, for lots of input, ideas, part names, and art feedback. Akira_R & 4nxs, for their HotRockets configuration work to add variation between vacuum/atmo effects. And many others for bug reports and feedback! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SpaceY Lifters is a parts pack that is intended to extend the stock line-up of parts for lifting heavy payloads to orbit, by providing a similar update to the NASA/ARM pack from 0.23.5, in the next size up. It provides a range of 5m fuel tanks and engines, a fueled 3.75m nose-cone, both "stack" and "radial" decouplers, a fueled size adapter, large docking ports, adaptive size adapters, upper-stage thrust plates with shrouds, and a range of powerful SRBs. The name is a play on "SpaceX" in the real world, but also has the amusing double connotations of being "spacey", and also "Space, why?" -- Because it's there! All of the models and textures were made 100% from scratch, using Blender, Photoshop, and Unity. Design Goals: Maintain a "pretty", but still mostly stock-alike appearance. While KW goes a long way toward realism, we want to have a smaller pack that blends nicely with stock, and other stock-alike packs. While extending the stock game, try to maintain a gameplay balance with stock. Stay memory efficient. Similar parts attempt to share the same textures (currently ALL fuel tanks use just one texture). And do so while adding: Another layer of large rocketry, beyond the 3.75m ARM/NASA update that was added in KSP 0.23.5. Specifically, 5m parts. Large SRB options with high thrust and shorter burn times than the NASA/ARM SRB. Large rocketry utilities-- Big radial decouplers with thrusters built in, larger sepratron, big docking ports, etc. Possible future plans? Bigger engine/tank parts? (7.5m for instance) More SRB types? LFBs? (Liquid Fuel Boosters) More decoupler types? More multi-way adapter pieces? --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Image Gallery: (Note that the stats, appearances, and descriptions of the parts shown below are subject to change, or may be out of date) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Parts Inventory: (as of version 0.17, 2015-06-18) Do you want more parts!? If you do, you can also install SpaceY Expanded with even more parts, and 7.5m diameter! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Installation Instructions: 1. If upgrading from a previous copy, it's recommended to delete the old "SpaceY-Lifters" folder first. 2. Backup your "saves" folder! While not required for installing mods, it's a good idea anyway. If any parts you have already used (including stock parts) fail to load, you'll have ships getting deleted! 3. Download and open the ZIP file. 4. Copy the "SpaceY-Lifters" folder into your "GameData" folder. 5. If upgrading, check your designs in the VAB/SPH. If attachment nodes have changed, you may need to reposition parts. Troubleshooting: Problem: Fuel tanks or SRBs flash different colors, with glitchy "z-fighting": Usually it boils down to one of a few different things. Now that I've seen probably most of them, I can give you a good list: 1. Everything is installed correctly, but ModuleManager's cache hasn't noticed the changes yet. Fix: This is a great one to try first. Delete the file called "ModuleManager.ConfigCache" in GameData. ModuleManager recreates it on the next KSP start. 2. ModuleManager isn't installed. Fix: Install it. 3. This mod is installed incorrectly, or you've deleted the color-change ModuleManager configs. Fix: Reinstall the mod correctly, and in its entirety. The MM config files include rules for what to do when color-changing isn't available, so please don't delete those. 4. Firespitter and/or InterstellarFuelSwitch are installed, but not functioning. Fix: The most likely cause is that the version of FS or IFS doesn't work with your version of KSP (for instance, you upgraded to KSP 1.1, and the mod is meant for 1.0.5 or earlier), or your copy is only partially installed. Delete it, and install the latest version of it. 5. ModuleManager thinks color-changing is available via Firespitter or InterstellarFuelSwitch, but neither is installed. Fix: This is a little trickier to pinpoint. Either another mod has bad rules in it (for instance using "FOR[Firespitter]" instead of "NEEDS[Firespitter]") and is therefore tricking ModuleManager, or one of these two mods is only partially installed. That could happen if you removed them via CKAN but the directories still exist, which ModuleManager will see as having them installed. To fix, either make sure both of those mods are completely uninstalled, or install one (or both) of them. Only the DLL from one of them is needed, you don't need the entire mod. But it needs to be running if ModuleManager thinks its there. 6. It's possible that another mod may be confused that changes how VAB/SPH tweakables or engine shrouds work. This is an odd case, but not impossible. When you don't have Firespitter or InterstellarFuelSwitch installed, the alternate paint jobs are disabled by turning them into "engine shrouds" that correspond to an attachment node that is a kilometer outside the VAB. If another mod interferes with this, such as defaulting all shrouds to "on" even when detached, then you might also see z-fighting. Sadly, the solution might be to simply not use the mods together. Problem: Textures are missing and you're seeing a lot magenta (purple/pink): 1. Files may be missing, or not where the mod is expecting to find them. Fix: Make sure you've installed the mod correctly, in its entirety, and in the right location. Don't rename folders. You can try completely deleting the mod and reinstalling (which is the best way to update the mod anyway). Also make sure the mod's dependencies are installed (SpaceY Expanded requires SpaceY Lifters, for instance). 2. ActiveTextureManagement is goofing it up. Fix: Either remove ATM, or try deleting ATM's cache. ATM frequently has cache issues that cause problems for texture reassignment across folder boundaries. ATM doesn't help as much as it used to, now that stock KSP and most mods use DDS texture format. We've included configs to try to stop ATM from processing this mod's folder, but that may not be working either. Problem: Engine exhaust plumes are missing: Cause: ModuleManager thinks that HotRockets is installed, but it actually isn't. Fix 1: Install HotRockets so that it's a non-issue. Fix 2: Go into the SpaceY folder(s) and delete "SpaceY_HotRockets.cfg". This will keep it from trying to use the HotRockets plumes. Fix 3: Figure out which other mod is causing the confusion, and remove it. We still don't know which mods are causing this, but it's probably due to someone using a "FOR" statement in their MM config instead of "NEEDS". --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download From: SpaceDock -or- Curse.com download page -or- ksp.necrobones.com --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Creative Commons 4.0 Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike CC BY-NC-SA --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Change History: 1.17.1 (2018-04-02) - KSP 1.4 update. - Corrected a copy/paste mistake in color-changing config. 1.17 (2018-04-02) - KSP 1.4 update. - Reworked color-changing to use KSP 1.4's mesh switcher. - Flag decals disabled for now, since the stock mesh switcher doesn't play nicely with them. - Disabled auto-caps on tanks, due to KSP bugs over several versions. - Changed ModularFuelTanks config to use consolidated wildcard patch. - Added some wildcards to TweakScale config. 1.16 (2017-01-30) - SRB Update. - Corrected smoke emitter location on the 3.75m SRB, 21m length. - Added a 30m long 3.75m SRB. - Added a 29m long 2.5m SRB. 1.15.1 (2017-01-03) - Compatibility Update. - Added "NEEDS" conditionals for ConnectedLivingSpace and EngineIgnitor patches, to clean up log spam. - EngineIgnitor patches moved to their own file in the patches folder. - Added "NEEDS" conditionals for Engineering Tech Tree compatibility. 1.15 (2016-10-21) - Update. - Added new RCS sounds/effects. - Added a linear RCS thruster. - Updated OMS engines to use new RCS sounds and effects. - Added two adapters that can be used with the Rose/Rosette adapter center slots. - Updated custom part category with recent additions from here and SpaceY Expanded. - Added some missing search tags on thrust plates / adapters. 1.14 (2016-10-12) - More KSP 1.2 Compatibility & Fixes. - Landing legs should now work in the Landing Gear action group automatically again. - 5m Fairing base null reference exception corrected, and is available again. - Names adjusted on some thrust plates / adapters. - Version changed to 1.14 to make it more clear this is a significant 1.2 update. 1.13.2 (2016-10-10) - Basic KSP 1.2 Compatibility. - Added KSP 1.2 and KerbNet modules to probe cores. - Landing leg suspension disabled until a 1.2 solution can be found. - Using ModuleAnimateGeneric for the time being, so legs can still be used. - Will need an Action Group, or the Default Action Groups mod, for best results. - Categories adjusted for several parts, corresponding to 1.2 changes. 1.13.1 (2016-08-01) - Tweaks. - Icon-only shroud added to fairing base, for easy identification in menu. - 5m conical bay added to custom parts tab. - Added MM "NEEDS" conditionals to RemoteTech modules in probe cores, and moved to separate patch file. - Deadly Reentry patch file renamed to sort properly in the folder. - Added a compatibility exclusion for HPTechTree. 1.13 (2016-06-08) - Update. - Adapters and Thrust Plates marked as passable for Connected Living Space so that they can be used for station construction, and docking ports, etc. - Added 5m/3.75m conical payload bay. - Adjusted the "hide if empty" rules for the tech nodes. 1.12.9 (2016-05-31) - Hotfix. - Massive Rocketry/Structure tech nodes are now set to be hidden if empty. - Fixed a harmless mistake in the MM patches, as part of its self cleanup. 1.12.8 (2016-05-31) - Tweaks. - Adjusted some nickname tags on engines. - Minor tech tree and config changes in MM patches.

If CTT is installed: - Moves tall 2.5m SRB to "Gigantic Rocketry" - Moves R5 (SaturnV-like) engine to "Gigantic Rocketry" - Changed sort-order in VAB/SPH menus for SRBs and short tank, so short versions are first. - (requires delete before reinstall of mod, or else you'll get double entries) - Added "Ejectatron", equivalent to 10x Sepratron. - Added intermediate height fuel tank. - Added 5m & 3.75m external-ring ASAS reaction wheel systems. - Added "R1" engine (single from the "R5" SaturnV-like cluster). - More thrust than Mainsail, and a little lighter, but much less efficient, costs more, and doesn't stack. - Added "F1" engine (single from the "F5"/"F9" engines clusters). - Less efficient and pricier, but more powerful and lighter than the Skipper. Accepts stacking in 2.5m and 3.75m. - Slightly improved "R5" engine cluster's efficiency. - Reduced the price and research costs of all liquid fuel engines. - Repainted fuel tanks, conical size adapters, and engines to be less "busy", and more SaturnV-like. - Slightly increased the "gloss" on tanks, so that the paint has more of a satin finish. - Updated TweakScale settings and moved them to a file called "SpaceY-TweakScale.cfg" for easy deletion/modification. 0.1 (2014-11-17) - Initial Beta test version. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  15. KerbalFoundries - Continued Re-inventing the wheel. Literally. This is the main release and development thread for the continuation of KerbalFoundries, originally created by Lo-Fi and Gaalidas, continued under new development with explicit permissions from the original authors and under the terms of the original licensing. This mod adds a variety of new parts to KSP that include wheels, tracks, and anti-gravity repulsors. For a list of features available to the wheels and tracks in this mod, please see the KSPWheels documentation ( https://github.com/shadowmage45/KSPWheel/wiki ). Currently included are four wheel models, eight track models, three repulsor models, a single skid/ski, a single screw-drive, and three adjustable aircraft landing gear. Tweakscale is not needed or supported for the wheel or track parts (though you should be able to have it installed without problem, the wheels will not use TS for scaling). Scaling of the parts is accomplished through the KSPWheel plugin's native scaling support, and includes configurable scale powers for all scaled variables (rpm, load handling, motor power output) (in the in-game difficulty menu). Many options are available and configurable through the stock in-game difficulty options menu. Look for KSPWheel and all of the options will be under that tab, including scaling powers and damage model adjustments.

Images, screenshots, examples: <Deleted by forum updates, will return someday> Change log: * Full logs -- https://github.com/shadowmage45/KerbalFoundries2/releases Known Issues: * Balance on parts is a bit arbitrary - can be changed based on feedback (especially the scaled balance) * Scaling balancing is WIP - scaling powers are not finalized (motor, mass, speed, load, etc), but can be configured in the in-game configuration settings. * GC-impacting issue when wheels are not grounded - under investigation. * Any other issues that exist with KSPWheel (see the KSPWheel repository/issues list) Future Plans: * More cleanup on configs and lots of balance work. * Additional landing leg variants. Including a few more 'lander' styled. * Additional landing gear variants. Single-wheeled straight gear, multi-wheeled side-deploy gear, large cargo-airliner styled multi-wheel deployable gear. * Recoloring configurations for TU; mask textures, normalization parameters or masks, texture set configs, and updates to the patches to enable recoloring. These will likely be an additional texture set that utilizes the existing textures alongside the newly provided mask textures.

  16. PLEASE READ THIS POST FOR INFORMATION ON THE FUTURE OF THE MOD SEP v2.7.1 This is a continuation of the mod originally created by @AlbertKermin, and now co-authored by him, myself, and @DMagic. I'm merely starting a new thread so that I (as a more active user) can maintain the thread as needed. SEP now runs on a custom science plugin, allowing much more complex science over time. (See the next post for more images!) Changelog: Mod Support: This mod has custom science definitions for CaptRobau's wonderful Outer Planets Mod. This mod has custom science definitions for KillAshley's New Horizons Pack. @Nils277 has made a Central Station wedge for use with his Kerbal Planetary Base Systems mod. Run a SEP off your ground base! RemoteTech compatible (requires Module Manager) AntennaRange compatible (requires Module Manager) Dependencies: KospY + IgorZ's wonderful Kerbal Inventory System/Kerbal Attachment System. Credits: AlbertKermin, for creating the original MSEP mod, helping create the original SEP mod, and contributing sciencedefs for the current iteration. CobaltWolf, for creating the new models and parts used in the mod. DMagic for creating the new plugin on which the science system runs. KospY, for the Kerbal Attachment System mod without which my mod could not exist. Vaga, who created the RemoteTech compatibility patch. Kerbas_ad_astra, who created the AntennaRange patch. Beale, whose solar panel texture we used (with permission). Enceos, for his amazing help with converting the original mod to use KIS. JefferyCor, for advice on repairing one of this mod's more troublesome bugs. Dunrana for helping write the Science definitions, testing, and generally getting me back to work on the mod.

  17. Adopted for curation with express permission of @Eleusis La Arwall Proceeding with adoption as time permits. Available on GitHub and CurseForge and SpaceDock.

  18. Animated warp effect: Inroducing a new, stand-alone Alcubierre drive for KSP! What does it do? The Alcubierre drive works by moving space around your ship, not through accelleration. In KSP we do this by changing your vessels position based on the engine throttle controls for the warp engine. Speeds of up to 16 times the speed of light are possible. How does it work? Use massive amounts of electric charge to create Exotic Matter. Point at your target. Use Exotic Matter and Xenon Gas (the latter is for the maneuver thrusters) to go straight to the target. Note that since your velocity does not change, only your location, you will have to compensate for any orbital speed differences. This can be excessive (15K+ DV) or, with proper planning, next to zero. To be clear. This is NOT just a fast, efficient engine. There is no acceleration (other than a tiny amount from the maneuver thrusters). It works through translating the ship's position (simulating how a real Alcubierre drive might work). What's the catch? How is this not OP? You will still need either very careful navigation or excessive DV changes to achieve orbit. Also, because of the destructive nature of the warp bubble, parts outside of it (both on your own ship and others) will be destroyed. Warp bubble collapses are also destructive, and maneuvering at excessive warp speeds can be very dangerous (everything from losing control through parts of your ship slipping outside of the bubble and exploding). What other mods do I need? None. Really. The only dependency is Regolith which is needed for it's converter (used to make Exotic Matter from EC). What other parts do I need to support this? Stock only. Really. Near Future Technologies reactors, or reactors from the USI mods will make some things easier, but you can get away with a completely stock warp ship with just the addition of this part. Can this support [mod X]? If you want integration with other mods, tell your favorite modders to ping me.

Read about them in this post Slime Lights Non-Idiot Lights And this is a stock aircraft on the runway with several of the lights attached to give a size comparison. So this all came about because I wanted some lights for a truck. After spending days trying to tie into ModuleLight I finally threw my hands up in disgust and wrote my own partmodule. Features: Works with multiple light sources on a single part using animations. GameObjects (lenses) so designated in the config can have their material color changed to match the light color. This happens real-time in the hangar. As you change the light color, the lens color changes. The color changer takes either _Color or _Emissive colors. GameObject (lenses) off colors - The plan is eventually to animate the lens colors to match the light color animation so that they fade in and out. I'm not there yet. Until such time, the lenses turn off and on during blink and remain on otherwise. The off color can be added in the .cfg file. Blinking lights - Most of these lights can be set to blink. On and Off times have a range of 0.1 sec to 10 sec. These are set via sliders in the hangar. Each light's blink time and blink state is set independently and is persistent Preset colors - Some of the lights on other mods I've seen have this cool blue shade rather than the stock yellow. With this plugin, you get 15 (at the moment) preset colors and the ability to add your own by adding to a dat file in the plugin directory. Preset format is: Color name,RGB.Red,RBG.Blue,RGB.Green I.E. Candle,255,147,41 Current color presets include: Candle 40W Tungsten 100W Tungsten Halogen Carbon Arc Warm Fluorescent Standard Fluorescent Cool White Fluorescent Full Spectrum Fluorescent Grow Light Fluorescent Black Light Fluorescent Mercury Vapor Sodium Vapor Metal Halide High Pressure Sodium Want more colors? Here's a website I found that has lots of them with their r,g,b values. Just add your favorites to the presets.dat in the Plugin folder. Future plans (hopes) Animating lens colors via code to match light colors. GUI menu to make that searchlight rotate and tilt. (done) Create a disco party truck (done) ProTip: To quickly locate these parts, search for Kerbal Electric in the hangar parts list.
  22. Hi everyone, I've ran into an issue with the breaking ground DLC, none of the parts included display in the SPH/VAB, the category 'robotic parts' is present, as is all the stock craft that come with Breaking Ground, but the category is completely blank and none of the Breaking Ground stock craft can be loaded due to containing 'locked or invalid parts' and can't be loaded. Clean (and new) install of KSP 1.12.2.3167, Breaking Ground 1.7.1, Making History 1.12.1 (both appear in the bottom-right corner of the main menu), attempted to completely remove KSP and then redownload to no avail. Windows 10 Home 64 bit. EDIT: Just to note, I've never had this issue before on previous versions of KSP/Breaking Ground. A link to the imgur album showing screenshots of what I'm seeing can be found here. Any help would be appreciated.
  23. Download on Curseforge or Github or SpaceDock. Also available on CKAN. KerbGuise Experimental engineering (KGEx) Brings you: The Gold Standard (TGS) Adopted for curation by @zer0Kerbal, originally by @Dewar This mod adds the pursuit of gold and an extremely rare resource called Unobtainium to the game! This resource part mod adds eight new parts and adds functionality to several stock parts in Kerbal Space Program. Preamble by @Dewar: Now with SMX support! Now with full SCANsat and Galileo's Planet Pack Compatibility!) This mod adds the pursuit of gold and an extremely rare resource called Unobtainium to the game! Gold Ore now appears on planets/moons Gold Ore can be mined and smelted into Pure Gold with the Smelter Return either Gold/Gold Ore back to Kerbin for profit Gold is heavier than Gold Ore, which is heavier than Ore Full integration with Vanilla drills and scanners Vanilla Drills and Surface Scanner available slightly earlier in the tech tree Only 8 parts (just over 3Mb download), low memory usage. Get over that mid-career fund grind in a fun and challenging way! What is Unobtainium? Unobtainium is an extremely valuable resource that generally spawns on high-G and extremely distant worlds. You can mine Unobtainium using the vanilla drills without needing a converter in-situ. Drills mining Unobtainium operate much more efficiently with both a scientist and engineer aboard. Unobtainium is a little more dense than gold, so ensure to bring adequate Dv! Finally a monetary reason to land on Eeloo, Eve, Moho/Icarus, or any of the other seldom visited worlds! This mod is not meant to be an easy cash cow; rather, a difficult alternative to contract spam. There is no gold on Kerbin, and be careful when choosing a mining site as only deposits of >2% (mini drill) or >1.5% (large drill) will yield gold ore. The gold ore can be returned for an okay-ish profit, but be aware that gold ore is basically 9/10s ore. So there are obvious benefits to smelting in-situ. The Smelter needs power, cooling, and an engineer to function at its full capacity. Pure Gold is, by design and IRL, HEAVY! Feel free to post any working ship/base designs! Note on returning with your space booty: Land near or on the space center to avoid diminished returns. Cabin notes: WIP - work in progress Am open to adding one more resource beyond Kerbin's influence, great project for someone!

The setup has since been redone but it would have been much harder without that help. @DerpyFirework for contributing the "DeployableAeroSurfaces" plug-in for the grid fins. It is in the public domain and the source code can be found here. Changelog: Good luck landing stages!
