  1. MandatoryRCS This plugin revisit the stock balance between the overpowered reaction wheels and RCS thrusters which are useless outside of docking situations. It does not propose a more realistic simulation of reaction wheels but is a collection of tweaks aimed at limiting their functions and balancing the gameplay. Reaction wheels are turned into stabilizers, preventing your vessel to spin out of control and keeping it pointed at the direction you choose in the SAS autopilot. But they have a very low (and somewhat realistic) torque power when the pilot or the SAS request a pitch, roll
  2. I've been playing 1.11 w/ MechJeb2 installed for a few days. I've seen the warning at startup (of course) that MJ2 isn't compatible, so I've been proceeding w/ caution, but until today it seemed to function normally for executing maneuver nodes, landings, and ascent guidance. That ended this morning. I have two ships (A and B) docked in Mun orbit; I have a station waiting for them to return to it. I separate them, and use MJ2 to set up nodes for ship A to a) match planes; b) rendezvous with the station; and c) match velocity. I execute the first node, then manually warp up to 1000x to
  3. hello, I'm running RO in ksp 1.8.1 thought to launch sputnik but RCS does not work (i have chosen nitrogen tank with nitrogen rcs ) but when i launch rcs never works it is really frustrating. plz help
  4. Tired of your monopropellant rockets being left out in the sound department? This adds a sound effect when firing RCS engines, varying in pitch and intensity with monopropellant usage. It can be useful to tell just how much SAS is burning through your reserves without even a glance. The sound file can be changed in the cfg file. Download from CurseForge Download from SpaceDock Source included, project also available on github, licenced under GPL v2. ModuleManager is required for this mod to work. Download it here. I
  5. Well hello there im new here! Why do people never use docking mode?!?!? I Always use it when docking and also i dont even know how to use rcs in flight mode. Can you please tell me how to use rcs in flight mode??? Thanks!
  6. Is Carbon Dioxide RCS feasible? For example, all the CO2 exhaled by the crew could go to a tank and be used for RCS. What do you guys think?
  7. Hi all, I'm playing KSP EE on PS4, and I'm enjoying it most of the time. However, there is one issue with RCS that really bothers me. When I activate it and use L1+R1 (or L1+R2), instead of pushing the craft only "forward" (or "backward"), it also generates a radial thrust that makes the craft rotate. The craft stabilizes itself right away when I release the buttons, but I'm wasting a lot of monopropellant because of this. Does anyone experience this issue, too? Is it a bug or does it have to do with the craft configuration? Thanks for your help.
  8. I don’t know if it is a glitch but when I eva my Kerbals and turn on rcs the Kerbal will not rotate. He/she moves forward, backward, etc without issues but they refuse to turn left or right. Does anyone else have this problem? I didn’t install/update any mods before then, it just happend randomly.
  9. Please excuse the noob question but, I'm adding a RCS function to a part for @FreeThinker and there appears to be a trick for naming RCS thrust transforms properly so the game recognizes them. I originally set them all up for the different directions with the exact same name, since that appeared to be the correct way. After investigating some old .mu files it appears they have to be named (something)thrusttransform.001 with the numbers indicating the direction. Would anyone happen to know the directions and their corresponding numbers?
  10. DOWNLOAD Click here to download FASA_RCS I decided to make some stock-like RCS blocks I thought were sorely missing from the base game. I like the new making history expansion but I didn’t like the absence of new RCS thrusters to go with it. RCS 45 is similar to the stock one just at 45 degrees. Lastly is a powerful single direction RCS for retro thrust applications.
  11. This mod will be a collection of RCS and hypergolic engines. I won't limit myself to hypergolic RCS as such though. I just see a lot of cross-over. Eventually I'll be looking at Realism Overhaul (can't see people wanting much in the line of main hypergolic engines without that), but for the moment I'm just developing using a dual config, one for stock, and one for RealFuels. So, the plan is basically a bunch of RCS block types. A few inline RCS modules (more on that in a sec). And some main engines of a few sizes, plus some larger side mounted engines (like the "puff", but bigger).
  12. Hello community members! I'm quite extensive messing around with mods on my RSS RO 1.22 Version. Recently I got the feeling it would be nice to have a fuel vent for getting rid of those toxic and reactive fuels in rcs systems etc. before reentry or recovery. Searches in the forums suggest mostly the http://kerbalspaceprogram.com/tac-fuel-balancer-v1-0/ which would do the job, but there is one thing that bothers me with it: no effects - there is no smoke tail coming with it... So here is my idea for a "simple" solution: Take a normal quad rcs asset, modify the .cfg with minim
  13. Is there a mod that will let me use RCS motors as main engines and equally choose other motors and tie them into the RCS ? In an ideal world I'd like to be able to make clusters of terriers or even poodles for instance and use them in place of RCS blocks. Equally I'd like to be able to take some of those bigger RCS engines and make them main engines for.. well actually the "Puff" is indeed a "main" engine so, see above But even place anywhere's would be cool to use as mains in low gravity environments and have them tied into the main engine schema. The reason I'm asking is that I
  14. Hey all, been messing with my RSS/Stockalike/Kerbalism install and I'm learning a lot about writing Module Manager configs. I've got everything set up pretty much how I want, except one thing that's really bugging me. Note that I am NOT using Realism Overhaul, but used RF Stockalike configs as a template to make my own for the stock engines. My problem is that my RCS works when there are no highly pressurized tanks for it to draw from. If I have a rocket with a hypergolic stage, I can just set my RCS ports to use the same type of fuel, and voila, they work as if they had pressuriz
  15. Do I need to toggle RCS on at launch to enable my Vernors? And if so, what's to stop the monoprop RCS farther up the stack from firing if I don't want them to?
  16. After upgrading to 1.3.1 I don't have any RCS sounds anymore. I've checked the sound settings and they're just on the defaults. Any ideas what's wrong?
  17. I am currently working on my first mod. I'm making a deep submergance vehicle (inspired by the Alvin) which has 7 thrusters which are used to maneuver. Since they are used similarly to RCS ports in KSP, I thought it would make sense to have them operate as such. But I'm wondering, should I animate the rotation of the blades in Blender just as you would for a jet engine? And then trigger the animation when the thrusters are used. Similar to how the RCS ports produce the thrust plume effect when they are being used.
  18. Backstory: Trying to dock a science pod to a space station/making a space station. RSC controls stuck in rotation mode and I can't really use ROT controls for docking. Before this the frames were jittering and basically going back and forth in time. Adjusted display settings, helped a little, then when docking it happened again. Don't know If this is important, but just recently updated to MacOS High Sierra, jittering happened a day before and stuck in ROT controls happened after. I'm really irritated that I cannot finish my space station, I had it in a low orbit. It was perfect. I launc
  19. I remember back just before 1.0 there was a mod that allowed you to toggle a button in the hanger menu of a thruster or engine to essentially make it a giant RCS thruster as it it was controlled by the RCS system. I really think something resembling that would be amazing is the stock game for when you want to use RCS thrusters on a large to massive craft. The mod also auto adjusted the thrust of the thrusters on your ship during flight(if you wanted it to) so the center of thrust would always be directly on the mass. It was an amazing mod if someone can find an updated version of it. I w
  20. Hey all, i seriously need a second set of eyes to help me see where i'm going wrong here, or if what im doing is even possible (im assuming it is, it's just that im more of a modeller than programmer and i'm missing something utterly obvious.) To the quick! The problem. I'm trying to create a "Spacebus" a small 6 man shuttlepod to ferry kerbals around Kerbin/Mun/Minmus stations. Everything was going fine until i tried adding the engines and RCS. Now, i've done a good bit of modding before so i know the pitfalls here, and i tried to cover most of my bases. =I tried add
  21. I have this upper stage: There are three sets of RCS ports, one set at each end and one set in the middle. The middle set operate correctly but neither of the end sets work at all. For the one at the far end, I thought that it was maybe the girder sections that weren't supplying fuel but the rear set is attached to the main fuel tank which is directly connected to the RCS fuel tanks so I no idea what's going on. Any thoughts. Mods installed: 000_Toolbar ConnectedLivingSpace ContractPacks CxAerospace DistantObject DMagicOrbitalScience HaystackContin
  22. Had a question about small craft in orbit. Trying to design a craft to land on Moho so I am trying to keep it considerably small and compact. Using a Mk1 lander can and putting most of the fuel tanks, batteries, etc. inside the can to limit physical size. The problem arises when I try to use RCS thrusters for any type of docking or maneuvering the craft literally goes crazy, and all the RCS thrusters are firing to keep it steady. I've basically done everything in the game unmodded, never had an issue with larger craft and docking, maneuvering etc. but have issues when I go small. Also have iss
  23. You know how we now have a mode selection for reaction wheels (Full, SAS, Pilot)? Could we get something similar for RCS controls that can cycle through functionality (Full, Translation, Rotation) and be Action Group'ed? Generally speaking, thanks to the power of Reaction Wheels in KSP, I use RCS mainly for translation (docking and fine orbital adjustments) and rarely for attitude/rotation control. (For the latter, it'd have to be one heavy craft with relatively weak RW power, I'm in a rush to change attitude for some reason, I need supplemental control because my control surface aren't a
  24. A while back, I learned about setting flow control for resources that are shared over an entire vessel, such as RCS fuel. Today, however, I came to wonder if I knew what I thought I knew. My ship, Far Traveler, has a 2.5 m RCS tank in the transfer stage (250 units), four "roundified" external tanks on the lander ascent stage (60 units), and the usual 10 units stored in the command pod. On its first real mission, I never had a problem with RCS until after decoupling the transfer stage to test the lander during aerobraking -- and then I found out both the lander's roundified tanks and
  25. Hello. I am currently playing with asteroid and I have an issue with attitude control of one of them. I have USI Asteroid Recycling Technologies installed. This mod modifies the mass and density of asteroids as so they are bigger and denser than stock (a C'ish' asteroid becomes big as an E'ish' one and so on). In order to steer the asteroid I have placed 2 ships on the opposite sides of it and they are equipped with a lot of RCS. When the ships are detached the RCS is behaving like it should but when they are attached to the asteroid not even a single drop of monopropellant is u
