S t o c k W a t e r f a l l E f f e c t s This mod contains a set of template and engine configuration files, that give amazing waterfall effects to the stock engines. Downloads: Primary: https://github.com/KnightofStJohn/StockWaterfallEffects/releases Dependencies: You will of course need to install the Waterfall mod for this to work: https://github.com/post-kerbin-mining-corporation/Waterfall/releases Make sure you install the latest version of Waterfall when updating Stock Waterfall Effects Module Manager 4.1.4 is already included with waterfall. As of version 0.6.0, you will also need B9PartSwitch: https://github.com/blowfishpro/B9PartSwitch/releases Known Issues & Workarounds: Issue: Some engines might lag your game if you use too many of them. Workaround: Waterfall has some options available in the WaterfallSettings.cfg file: Set the "EnableLights" and "EnableDistortion" options to "false". New 0.6.0 plume selection Feature: My goal with this mod is to give the stock engines a realistic looking exhaust plume. This means that I try to give the engines that are inspired by real life engines, the correct type of plume. For example the Vector is based on the Space Shuttle Main Engine, the RS25, and therefore has a very similar looking hydrolox plume in this mod: However, some engines in the stock game were designed to look like certain real-life engines, but do not have similar stats in the game. I have to strike a balance between realism in engine performance, or realism in real-life inspiration.I chose to focus on giving the engines the correct plumes according to their performance. This is a list of the configured engines and the type of plume they have in this mod: • Vector & Mammoth: Lower stage hydrolox / Lower stage methalox • Poodle & Terrier: Upper stage methalox the reasoning here is that the Wolfhound and Cheetah are also both vacuum engines, but with even better ISP. Therefore they will be hydrolox engines, while the terrier and poodle will be methalox. • Rapier: Lower stage methalox & Methane-air • Rhino & Skiff: Mid-range hydrolox • Nerv: Upper stage nuclear hydrogen • Reliant, Swivel, Skipper, Mainsail, Twin Boar, Kodiak & Mastodon: Lower stage kerolox These kerolox plumes were originally designed by @Zorg for the Bluedog Design Bureau, and altered by me. Some more than others. • Spark & Cub: kerolox sustainer. • Cheetah & Wolfhound: Upper stage hydrolox Although the models for these engines are based on real hypergolic engines, I still made these two hydrolox engines because they have exceptionally high Isp. • Bobcat, Thud, Twitch & Spider: Lower stage Hydrazine 50 (hypergolic). This plume was originally designed by @Zorg for the Bluedog Design Bureau, and altered by me. • Puff & Ant: Upper stage Hydrazine 50 (hypergolic). • Dart: hydrolox aerospike. • Dawn: Xenon Hall-effect ion plume. • Goliath, Juno, Wheesley: Kerosene turbofan. • Panther: Kerosene turbofan & generic kerosene afterburner. • Whiplash: Blackbird J58 type kerosene afterburner.

Just a suggestion for when reentry heating is added. When SpaceX boosters come back from space to land they do a reentry burn that not only slows them down but also decreases the amount of heat damage done to the craft. You can see it in this video here: Being able to use your engine as a heat shield would make room for some very cool challenges and last minute saves. The plume fx adapting would also be a nice touch.
Vl3d posted a topic in KSP2 DiscussionSeems to me that methalox engines have one placeholder plume. If you look at it straight on, it's kind of transparent. Anyway, I think the atmospheric plumes from KSP1's waterfall look better for smaller engines. Hope they'll be improved in KSP 2 also.
What mod/s will add a realistic smoke effect to my game? I'm looking for something like this. I have researched for a bit but nothing came up. Thanks for any responses.
What mods make the nerv plumes red?
olieeee posted a topic in KSP1 Mods DiscussionsSo a lot of the time I see someone playing ksp using nerv and the plumes are red what makes this?
Combining Waterfall with SmokeScreen?
NullPointerException posted a topic in KSP1 Mods DiscussionsI'm using the Waterfall mod, but I don't like how there is no engine smoke. However, the Waterfall forum thread states that Waterfall is And I would like to use that compatibility. RealPlume prefabs would be perfect. But, as Waterfall overrides RealPlume, this would require me to Separate the RealPlume effects into smoke and plume And apply only the smoke along with the Waterfall plumes. The SmokeScreen Github wiki is incomplete, while the only followable tutorial for RealPlume that I could find utilizes Realism Overhaul, which I don't use. Does anyone know of a tutorial for making RealPlume/SmokeScreen smoke effects that is up-to-date and doesn't use Realism Overhaul?
