About me



  1. Bin Chicken Inc. WIP Thread I present to you my FIRST EVER ATTEMPT AT 3D MODELING AND PART MODDING! Service Modules: Somewhat inspired by SHDI Service Module System and a very old (5+ years ago) mod, that from memory was called "SM Service Module" and somewhat inspired by real life, i have decided to give this a go. The scope i have set for myself is for a family of stock-a-like service modules similar to that found on Apollo, Orion and also some of my own concepts. being an Australian i have decided to name these after Aussie birds I plan on making a few different 2m variants for different missions. but to start with ill be just doing some intended for Kerbin orbit and for operations within Kerbin's SOI. These modules will contain a verity of consumables and may or may not include other functions such as built in decouplers and other functions as i learn how to implement them. I use 3ds Max as my 3d modeling software as it is available to me for free through my university. I have tried blender, however i cant stand it! I would be interested to hear any criticism weather it would be about game balance or about the models themselves. I also would like to say that i have absolutely NO SKILL IN MAKING TEXTURES AND SKINS! If anyone would be interested in texturing these models please let me know. You would have a free hand in creating stock-a-like textures and i would be happy to credit you for your work . So without further ado, lets get started.... SM-16 "Kookaburra" Service Module: The SM-16 is intended to be like the Apollo service module. It is designed for Munar and Minimus Operations SM-2 "Bell Bird" Service Module The SM-2 is currently being modeled, but is based of the Orions service module. it is designed for Kerbin Orbital Operations Also Planned are other service modules designed for long duration missions such as interplanetary transfers and also remote controlled modules for cargo and utility purposes
  2. Being released shortly is an updated parts pack that contains (amongst other parts) stack mounted fuel cells. This discussion concerns those .1 (1/10) meter high stack fuel cells. Each part contains the fuel cell, fuel tank (in units) and a batteries. I want your input as to the game balance of each of the sizes, and where on the tech tree they should appear Don't want to use Tweakscale on these due to the need for fine tuning game balance. Fuselage versions (mk0-mk5) are included just in case a model/texture can be found/provided that will allow these to be created/included. Thank you in advance! the current plan is to introduce these as Monopropellent powered. With the ODFC (On Demand Fuel Cells) patch that is included, these will expand to Liquid Fuel + Oxygen, Liquid Fuel + Intake Air, and Hydrogen + Oxygen (= EC + Water) modes. Doing this might also be possible with the latest B9. Also any thoughts about if a patch to include a fuel cell in the stock pods and if yes, how much EC should it provide? Obviously the patch would not include the fuel or electricCharge. thank you in advance! For comparison Stock Fuel Cell: cost: 750 entry cost: 2250 techRequired: Electrics mass: 0.05 EC/s Produced: 1.5 EC storage: 50 Stock Fuel Cell Array: cost: 4500 entry cost: 13500 techRequired: Electrics mass: 0.24 EC/s Produced: 18 EC storage: 300
  3. A technical question on how KSP works: if I delete only the cfg file of a part, will that part's model and textures still be loaded into memory? Or is the cfg solely responsible for telling KSP what to load? The intention here is trying to save up memory by removing parts I don't like or don't need.
  4. Do not use any grappler parts as vessel Root. Command Pod, roughly same size as Mk1; will work on IVA when I get my hands on the new PartTools. Now has data transmitter built-in. Two variants depending on other active mods. KAS: adds front mounted winch unit w 30 meter cable. Size slightly reduced, Increased ejection force. No more harpoon bouncing off of asteroids. SCANSat: adds small SCANSat network uplink unit w/ BTDT scanner. FStextureSwitch2 for some visual customization options Advanced Drone Unit, derived from the Command Pod. Crew space converted to service bay. More EC and Mono capacity. Integrated RCS thrusters. One variant available RemoteTech: Service bay removed. Adds 500km passive Omni antenna and 9Mm directional antenna, should allow comfortable operation within Kerbin SOI. Increased EC and Mono capacity. Integral RTG Grappler unit, very handy for moving things around when you don't have a docking port. Strong SAS and RCS thrusters. Moderate EC capacity and LF/OX, LF, or Mono fuel options. Reduced SAS power to 20; Max RCS power increased to 15 with default RCS thrust set to 5%. Radial NV engine; burns LF/OX or Mono. Reversible thrust. Full extension to around 2m, a tad shorter than the FT400 fuel tank. can give you that extra clearance you need when hauling large objects. Keep Kerbals away from moving parts. Fixed reverse thrust. added thrust Gimbal. now with KSPI-E config. wide range of characteristics depending on fuel type. Added Indicator for reverse thrust mode. Helper Drone, small remote controlled RCS block with integrated light and RTG. Max RCS thrust of 8 w/ default thrust at 10% max. Minimal SAS. Use grabber to dock after initial separation. 3km omni antenna if using RemoteTech. Adaptor Carrier; same dimensions as Push Adaptor but fitted with higher capacity Mono tank and compartments for up to 4 Helper Drones. Grabber unit only. Will replace Push Adaptor part in future. Fixed collider boxes so you don't get stuck grabbing on to Size 1 Docking port when you get perfect alignment. Added orientation indicators and switcher. Red-Left, Green-Right, Yellow-Up. Push Adaptor/Service Bay; Grabber/DockingPort/Service Bay. Service Bay replaced by KIS container if you run KIS. Grappler Jr. Grappler arm w/ Service Bay, integrated external command seat. Service Bay replaced with KIS container if KIS is installed. I don't know what it's good for... Jeb made me do it.

  5. Even though its name is a reference to the wide-body Airbus A300, the Stearwing A300, with its 3.5 m Mk3 fuselage is only the size of a narrow-body A320. To avoid having to clip two rows of fuselages into each other to replicate wide-body jets, I think stock KSP should have 5 m plane parts.
  6. EDIT as of 4/12/2020: I have abandoned this project. It was an interesting idea, but at the time I did not have the capability to put things into place like I wanted. Sorry to all those who were looking forward to it. In the future, I'll post things once I have something to show for. There is a non-zero chance I will revive this project. Although unlikely.
  7. From my own experience, I know that Interstellar Extended can be quite complicated to figure out, so I made this post to minimise the fuss. In the KSP @FreeThinker's Interstellar Extended mod, there is a number of very cool futuristic parts, and sometimes it can get quite hard to find out how to best use those parts. One of the best examples of such a feature is the Acullbierre drive (a.k.a the Warp Drive) As most parts in IE and in KSP in general, the Acullbierre drive requires a few more parts to function. To fully understand how a warp drive functions, we are going to use an example ship I’ve built. It’s parts fall into these main categories: -Means of control (Duh) - Reactor (mega joules generator) - Secondary power source (mega joules are considered a different resource, so it is best that there is at least a solar panel on the ship) -Acullbierre Drive -Radiators (an absolute MUST for almost any system in IE) Secondary Propulsion system (When exiting warp, you will be going at the exact speed you left at, so you will want to make some adjustments so that you don’t fall into or escape the planet you’re going after) With most parts being pretty self explanatory, there are two features I need to address: The drive and the reactor. Reactors are parts that generate electricity. Some do more than others but they may also require more resources or last less long. Make sure to read the description of them to make sure your ship has the required resources. As well as that, many reactors have different configurations, meaning that some can utilize different configurations of resources. These are different for every reactor, so make sure you choose the one that suits you best. (Most reactors can be fitted with an extra “thermal” reactor. Those utilize the excess heat your reactor/Acullbierre drive produce and repurpose it as electricity. They can go great with reactors as they increase the power output greatly) Acullbierre drive comes in three different shapes: small, large and compact. These differ in the amount of mass they can transport, so make sure you have the correct one (they can also stack BTW) When everything is set up and the reactors are working, go to the drive menu (via right click) to start the drive. CAUTION: this act will generate a lot of excess heat, so be sure you either have enough radiators or your actions are quick!!! When the reactor is charged (the exotic matter bar is full) select your destination on map screen, point there and turn the warp drive on! Tip: one of the readings on the drive menu is the current warp speed. You can increase and decrease that with the appropriate buttons on the menu. Make sure you you slow down quickly enough though!
  8. which mod added several really LONG extending ladders? was it Ven's?
  9. Here's a few ideas I had for new spaceplane parts, as well as a few suggestions for the current ones. And I know some of these suggestions are inside of mods, but I would like them in the base game for stock builds. New parts: A bigger Goliath - 3m Goliath anyone? But seriously, bigger engine, more thrust, for those heavy payloads... or just to get a tiny payload moving ridiculously fast. A bucket reverser 1.25 meter engine - Buckets are kool. A 1.8 meter engine - not as small as the J-20, but not as big as the J-90. A middle road jet engine. 1.8 meter aircraft parts Bigger FAT-445 Aeroplane Main Wings - Two new sizes actually. One wing is better than 50 wings glued together after all. Size 2 rounded fuselages Size 3 rounded fuselages - Or parts to make the mark 3 parts round. Pegasus XL styled Fuselage - Basically, a place to hold rockets and a place to tail fins to stick up inside of the fuselage New landing legs in many different styles - Including but not limited to, F-16 style, where they go 90 degrees (About) from the fuselage, C-17 style, Hidden inside a hump that attacks to the Fuselage, and WW2 fighter style, wheels that go up side ways instead of forwards or backwards. Aircraft heat shielding - For when you're going 1400+ M/S and things are getting a little toasty. Basically what I'm picturing is little body conformed wing like structures that you can click on to the aircraft's nose and belly, or anywhere else really. Aircraft antenna - Resistant to both heat and air speed. Edit parts: J-90 Goliath Pylon removable option - An option to remove the pylon from the engine so that when it's inline with the body like a tri-jet config, it looks cleaner. Engine Nacelle Pylon option - Option to add a pylon on to the part Shock Cone Intake animation - An animation that moves the cone foreword or backwards depending on if above or below Mach 1. Plus manual option to move cone forward or backwards. J-404 Model switching - New models that mimic some other jet engine nozzles, such as the F-22, the F-15, the Su-37, and the X-31
  10. This is a parts pack of 2.5m spaceplane parts with a flat bottom, possessing a bit of aerodynamic lift. I am going to be updating this mod sporadically, and I would appreciate any comments, critiques, etc. I would especially like to know people's thoughts on the balance of the mass and lift. As of 5/12/17, I have changed the license for this mod to MIT Download: Note: updating to 1.3 renames/replaces many of the parts.

  11. Please note the following mods also require the installation of SM Industries SM Armory, SMI Missiles and Launchers, SM OST and T , SM AFV's Failure to install SM Industries will result in names and descriptions being displayed incorrectly and other related features will not work(don't panic the correct version of SMI is included in every download) Latest Update v0.99.99.93 Further enhancements, localisation. texture updates SM Armory for KSP 1.4.X and BDA 1.2.X ONLY Important note regarding recent BDA changes specifically BDA see spoiler The original BDA expansion contains over 100 items to enhance your military might from 7.7mm WW1 machine guns to modern CIWS systems , WW2 field guns to 152mmAGS turrets there's a weapon for every eventuality With SMA now containing 100 parts it's time to go for V1 and full release,SM Armory is also to my mind complete and as such very little will be added, however my intention is to make extra packs to add on if the user wishes, rather than forcing and increasingly large download This version includes the impossibles, things that were thought impossible to create with BDA. These turrets ALL designed for CIWS use feature rapid fire cannons and AA missile rails. Also as usual are loads of normal turrets some based on fantasy , some on reality, but wherever the inspiration came from I've attempted to make them relevant to the Kerbal world. With notable and deliberate exceptions everything here is appropriately powered for Kerbal Kombat. I've also spent a good amount of time making sure that they work with SM Marine and The Large Boat Parts as i find that's the situation in which most of these will be used Some of the latest additions Current Items that made release, constantly subject to testing and response SM_Armory for KSP 1.3.1 Notes NOT installing the SM_Industries folder will mean that parts may not appear, strings will be nonsensical and mod performance will be reduced On installation you will notice that the mod contains an extras folder. In this folder you will find the Secubots security robot turrets, A weapon probe for connecting to turrets for standalone use, meant for use with the field guns, the pirate ship cannon and the 88.

  12. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx NOTE TO ALL USERS OF SM MARINE There are issues in KSP 1.6.x with certain parts containing multiple animations . These issues display as broken information in the PAW (right click menu) and the animations being inoperative . The fix is fairly simple but time consuming to do and will be dealt with in a small update shortly. This and the broken IR aside all parts appear to be working well and fully functional in 1.6.x xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx SM Industries Presents v0.9.9.3 SM Marine KSP 1.4.X BDA 1.2.X OnlyUse SM Industries Included SM Marine NEEDS the SM_Industries plugin and localisation dictionary in order to function correctly It is important to have the version that matches the release, mismatched versions will result In Autloc text being displayed and parts may not appear SM_Industries for a latest releases can be found at the link below https://github.com/SpannerMonkey/SMIndustries/releases What is SM Marine? primarily its is a selection of parts and equipment to make your ships look more like ships, including better looking bridges with limited IVA, working radars, propeller drive systems, masts and antennas, I even found the time to add a few one part hulls As you may know I've been developing weapon mods forever and even as long ago as 0.16 I had working boats and submarines. upon my return I noticed a proliferation of boat mods and thought cool I like boats and ships a lot, i tried them and non of them fitted what I wanted, they were either too big, too complex or just not Spanner. So i started making a small selection of parts to make them more to my taste, along the way i dipped into my many years of experience in the marine industry and way too many hours spent on sea trials and made some hulls, that according to those who have tested them are some of the best behaved hulls in the game, naturally I'm biased. None of the parts are huge but they are all tweakscale prepared, so should you desire they can be huge . Typhoon and main cmd center IVA And its not all military Changelog Notes on functionality All radar units included in this mod require BD Armory in order to function. ALL drive units require a recent copy of the Firespitter DLL to be installed, without firespitter there will be no engine sounds. Would very much like a standalone version of the engine sounds functionality Propeller effects are provided by stock modules as is engine reversing. Extending Radar and small Radome the unit is telescopic and also includes a targeting camera, The fwd or neutral position is marked on the shell by use of a yellow line There are 3 types of anchor included all types work as anchors when attached to a KAS winch mount, in addition anchor 4 will activate the AirAnchor functionality of the HL airships airpark modules ( working on a standalone version for this mod) All structural parts will and should sink, please let me know if you find something floaty that should not be. Drive Units and rudders have 0 buoyancy. Each hull carries a small amount of ballast space, each Bridge unit has a pump for filling and emptying the ballast space. The drive units power scales with size so it is possible to overpower all the hulls should an overly large drive size be chosen, for best results keep scales in parity. The Rudder. do not be tempted to add several rudders in order to quicken steering, due to lift in certain circumstances now providing speed it is possible with multiple rudders to induce uncontrollable handling characteristics. The hulls steer at an acceptable rate for the size and mass All of the hulls has RCS thrusters acting as fine position and maneuvering thrusters, these are powered from ballast stored in the onboard tanks, To activate RCS you will need to pump some ballast into the tanks then activate RCS as normal, no ballast = no thrust All drives are intended to run on Intake Air and liquid fuel, the included intake mast will provide enough air for fairly large scales of engine, this part is also scale able For ease and simplicity of use the bridge units carry small generators for LF IA and EC And as a bonus all parts work well with other ship mods especially the Large Boat Parts pack that i am now maintaining while Laythe is otherwise occupied The new small hulls are not currently balanced for HullBreach, they are a lot more delicate than the LBP parts and balancing is a time consuming process, As soon as the balancing is properly achieved the cfg's wil be added to HullBreach. The larger hulls are almost there and will sink with cfg's included in HullBreach The Tug can attach to any other vessel using the included grab parts, styled as a push bar and truck tire these function exactly the same way as the stock Klaw. To use mount the chosen type on your craft, once launched, select arm, this will raise the visible contact pads. To attach to another vessel approach should be around 1m/s any slower and it will not trigger, any faster and you may bounce off before the module can grab the other vessel. To release select release from the gui. Most ships in LBP can be moved by two tugs 1 at the stern of the vessel to be moved and one attached via the Truck Tire klaw to the side of the vessel to be moved just forward of midpoint. this forward tug provides steerage Craft Files Basic Builds Special thanks go to @gomker @XOC2008 @V8jester without whom the mod would not be as neat as it is , and thanks to all the others who've presented ideas, random thoughts which have become a reality Download from SpaceDock other downloads available shortly GitHub Requires SM_Industries Dictionary assembled and created by @gomker SM_Industries EN US Localisation Dictionary Now available stand alone airpark works with the NEW ship main anchor Mods that are considered essential in order to fully use every item in this mod and Other Ship and Boat related useful mods and addons see below ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hi all A Note concerning issues.

  17. Hello, I have tried to design a very small Spaceprobe, when i saw that the Mass of it more than doubled when i tested it inflight. I have then experimented a bit, a the weight bonus is added to every Command part ingame inflight (+49kg). I am using a RSS/RP1 install in KSP 1.3.1 (via CKAN) . I have tried to trace it down to to a Mod, it should be somewhere in the RP1/Realism Overhaul in their dependencies. Ckan Modlist is linked there: https://www.dropbox.com/s/6uxbrf2xp7xnprw/RSS49KGBug.ckan?dl=0 . This bug, which is obviously greatly hurting my ability to make small Stages and Probes, can easly reproduced by just launching anything with a command unit. Thank you for your time Keineahnung4010 Edit: Picturesfolder: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ijnxcjj9ore8r5m/AABHczmZT6-_xt6OX8j0e3TJa?dl=0 Edit2: Logfile: https://www.dropbox.com/s/zhddilm6d2abgqt/output_log.txt?dl=0 Craftfile1: https://www.dropbox.com/s/a6zjwmpx2cp9jw1/Test 1.craft?dl=0 Craftfile2: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4cq8kjnr1il5db7/Test 2.craft?dl=0
  18. I personally really want a stock centrifuge habitat to be implemented into the newer ksp versions. I would like to see your ideas though too. @UomoCapra please consider doing this
  19. BETA Version (v0.4.5.1) I feel happy enough with the state the mod is in at present to open this up for a 'Beta-test'. Without further ado I present my first Mod release: Introducing the Recoverable Emergency Kerbal Transport (REKT) escape pod mod. This part mod pack is designed to introduce another means of safely recovering your Kerbals from a mission which may have gone wrong, or possible as a deliberate means of evacuating an orbital station as it makes its graceful descent on a sub-orbital trajectory. Command: REKT mk1A - Single Kerbal pod with built-in airbrakes for atmospheric re-entry REKT mk1C - Single Kerbal Cryogenic† pod with built in RTG. REKT mk1D - Single Kerbal lightweight pod with inbuilt communications equipment and additional provisions (where applicable)* REKT mk1N - Single Kerbal pod with built-in retro-rockets, which can be automated**, for non atmospheric sub -orbital trajectories REKT Miniature Probe Core - for flying kontainers, has a built in MonoProp thruster. OTAV Core - Single Kerbal lifting body style pod. Utility: REKT Kompatible Kontainer - a simple freight pod which can store a multitude of provisions*** REKT Kompatible Kontainer (KIS Variant) - unsurprisingly, a KIS variant of the REKT Kompatible Kontainer REKT Auxiliary Miniature Parachute - a smaller, slim-line a parachute designed to fit well under the ITA. Coupling: Surfacemount Hardware REKT - A surface attaching single pod decoupler. Inline Triple Adapter - a 1.25m Inline triple REKT mounting adapter, you might want to cover this with a faring... Inline 12 Hub - A 2.5m inline adapter with the functionality of the Inline Triple Adapter but four times the capacity! OTAV Docking Port - lightly angle inline docking port designed to mate with the front hatch of an OTAV core. OTAV Ring Dock - specialised round docking apparatus, 2.5m dia. Designed for use with OTAV docking clamps. OTAV Clamps - splecialised apparatus to mate an OTAV core pod to the OTAV Ring Dock Electrical: Standard Utility REKT Fuel-cell - A compact monoprop fuel-cell Engines: REKT Payload Retro Rocket - a miniature SRB, derived from the same ones in the mk1N, intended for use with the freight pods OTAV engine - small LFO engine derived from the Thud engine. Aero: OTAV Winglets - bespoke retractable wings for use with the OTAV core. OTAV flap - a precise control surface for use with the OTAV core. OTAV Air Fins - Stabalisaing apparatus to help assist atmospheric flight and incorporating an air-brake. OTAV Parts OTAV Parts have additional dependencies separate from the REKT mod: REKT-OTAV Deployable Lift Generators rely on using the RetractableLiftingSurface module created by @linuxgurugamer the current version at time of release is bundled with this mod. the OTAV integral landing gear is driven by @Shadowmage 's KSPWheel. They will NOT work without it. current version at time of release is bundled with this mod. Additional note - These parts may receive more attention/extra bits if there is interest in it's development. Localisation is now Supported - as of 23/06/2017 release (any translations offered would be helpful!) DOWNLOAD: Primary: Github Secondary: SpaceDock download and copy the SHED, KSPWheel and RetractableLiftingSurface directly into the your KSP GameData folder. Licensing: The contents of the REKT mod are distributed a CC-BY-NC-SA International License (please refer to the license file on github for further details). Any included mods are under their own licenses. Highly Recommended Supporting Mods: REKT is a stand-alone parts mod and does not have any other mod dependencies, that said, it has been designed around the utilisation of supporting mods and it is highly recommended that you add them to your collection (they are very useful in their own right). IndicatorLights by @Snark Landertrons managed by @Kerbas_ad_astra RasterPropMonitor by @MOARdV Module Manager will implement the supporting modules, so you'll need that to (if you haven't already got it). The REKT mk1C is compatible with @JPLRepo's DeepFreeze Mod (designed specifically for this purpose) *Supported Life Support Mods: TAC LS USI LifeSupport Snacks **Landertron is required for automatic functionality ***InterstellarFuelSwitch is required for variety of cargoes †DeepFreeze is required to use the 'cryogenic' aspects of the pod. [Its will act as a normal pod with an RTG without this mod. It can be removed from your REKT installation if desired] KIS functionality is now supported through the REKT Kompatible Kontainer (KIS Variant) I must extend my thanks to @Snark, @Kerbas_ad_astra @DStaal and @linuxgurugamer for their input and help. Also thanks to @njmksr and @MaverickSawyer for preliminary testing. And thanks goes to @CobaltWolf and @dboi88 for help and guidance with texturing. Also I owe much thanks to @Pak who helped me fix the aero setup for the OTAV (finally). Change log: Imminent Additions (Soon™)t: rework to OTAV clamps to include RCS rework to OTAV core to include RCS new part - OTAV OMS block Planned additions: IVAs for the pods (still WIP on those at present) Create the mk1C - a REKT equivalent Cryo-Pod, specifically designed for use with DeepFreeze Properly update TAC-LS patch Finish the mk1C animation components Additional MM config patches for the StageRecovery Mod to enable more autonomy of the pods (and allow for concurrent multiple suborbital trajectories without risk of the core game 'scrapping' the pod. Further integration of Indicator Lights (extra, more clever bitz). Accessories! KIS variant of the Freight Kompatible Kontainer More adapter parts (bigger, better). Way down the pipeline is for a custom plugin that would replace the 'probe module' in the mk1A (and possibly mk1N). Feedback and suggestions: Always welcome, if you have any ideas which you might like to see implemented let me know and i'll see what can be done!

  21. KERBAL KRISTMAS PACK Provided by Santa Gift Industries, a subsidiary of Integrated Phoenix Industries. DOWNLOAD: https://spacedock.info/mod/2034/Kerbal Kristmas Pack - Lights and presents DESCRIPTION: Just a fun little silly festive mod which adds attachable lights and a KIS container present. Requires Kerbal Inventory System (KIS) to function. You can get KIS here: NOTES: - I haven't figured out how to do colour changes on one part, so the lights are separate parts for each colour. CHANGELOG: v1.0 -First Release
  22. Still THE pack of select vanilla-inspired parts for your aircrafting needs! UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT For further info please visit the thread linked below Kerbal Aircraft Expansion V2.7.2 The continuation of the Kerbal Aircraft Expansion created by @keptin Currently under management by SpannerMonkey and the SM TestGroup Special thanks go in this update to @DoctorDavinci for overhauling all the textures . @inigma for testing and advice. and the guys on the overwhelmed test team. Thanks muchly all Previous version listed for KSP 1.2.2 has known issues in KSP 1.3.1 and although functional will produce log errors that may lead to diminished game quality. Use at own risk. Last released Version of KAX KAX on CurseForge Installation Extract the KAX folder, Firespitter folder, and ModuleManager.dll into your KSP Gamedata folder. Be sure to properly extract the Firespitter/Resources folder or you will have FScoolant errors on loading the electric prop. If you already have Firespitter and/or Module Manager, use the latest versions of their .dll plugins. 2M cockpit - 2M Fuselage (jet fuel) - 2M Structural Fuselage (empty) - -2M Tail Boom New textures -Copyright Overview- KAX models, textures, and sounds are created by Keptin, who retains all copyrights.

We would hope that any new part will blend seamlessly with the current parts and add to rather than detract from the mods functionality
  23. Does anyone have any hard data for the height of each part (Ideally in meters)? I've been trying to find them, but I can't find any kind of list with that information. The parts list on the wiki has radial size, but not height. Does anyone have a personal or public link they can post?
  24. The mod would consist of 2 parts: they will be Environmental Exposure Laboratories (E.E.Ls ). There will be a space and surface version of that part. Space E.E.L : Would be a deployable 2.5m wide module. when deployed, it would still be able to fit inside a 3.75 container. The main idea would be able to conduct 3 experiments (one on a plant, the other on an animal, the other on a fungus) by exposing them to the environment around them. Unlike any other experiments though, It would have a capacity of 2 kerbals, (0 when undeployed) and would have to have at least one scientist to conduct. The experiment would also take 1 kerbal day to conduct. It would have on-board electric charge and an openable container to store stuff (much like a service module.) However, it will refuse to inflate when on land due to "low structural integrity to be deployed in a gravitational sphere of influence" Land E.E.L : Would have almost the same features as the Space E.E.L, but it would only be able to be deployed on land due to "parts requiring gravity to operate" and would also have a different texture. Finally, it will have deployable little legs at the bottom. Both E.E.Ls would have separate logs for every accessible biome and would be designed by "Core Industries Research & Exploration Laboratory" or C.I.R.E.L This is so far only an early concept, and I personally lack the programming skill to execute it myself, so suggestions are fully welcome!!!
  25. I recently reinstalled KSP on my laptop as I had to get Windows reinstalled and it wiped everything. Whenever I try to attach something radially it won't attach perpendicular to the surface and I have to rotate it manually. It's really annoying, and ideas?
