  1. So I'm wondering, with resource trading supposedly being a thing in multiplayer, I think it would be fun to have the ability to charge for usage of a players relay network. Now, idk if probe control will work on a packet system the way science uploads do and I honestly doubt they would, but I think it would be very fun from a role play perspective to try to play as the System's telecommunications network and fund your other projects that way. Ultimately my goal would be to be able to become the "PAY YOUR PHONE BILLS" meme from battletech.
  2. Hi, I don't know if I'm doing things wrong. The indicator for depleted fuel no longer appears in the parts info, it only shows enriched uranium. For example, at the SPH, if I decide to use the MF-2 Nuclear Drum, it only shows me enriched uranium. Could you help me with this?

  5. The already highly anticipated party pack for @Nertea 's ISRU overhaul, Space Dust. Dust Bunnies ensures the presence of not only the resources used by his mods but resources relevant to some popular outside use cases: Life support, Mars Direct, Exotic rocketry. Space Dust + Dust Bunnies can run in parallel with Rational Resources. Note that converter and tank patches will not be provided here. Only resource placement and the related options for the scanners and harvesters. Use Rational Resources Parts and your favorite fuel switch mod for those. You will find LqdAmmonia, LqdCO2, LqdDeuterium, LqdMethane, LqdNitrogen, Rock and Water (the added resources) in many interesting new places. Let me know if I should switch out Oxidizer for LqdOxygen. Supports: Stock JNSQ Support is planned for: OPM No promises on an RR-alike template system happening. The resource placement nodes here have a higher granularity and complexity than stock ones. DOWNLOAD :: GITHUB License: MIT
  6. So I'm using several mods in my game including MKS from USI, however I can't seem to be able to transfer enriched uranium between storage with docked vessels or even within the same vessel. I've seen a few posts about using 'maintenance' function to transfer it but I haven't been able to get this to work. I'm probably missing something really simple! Thanks!
  7. Ok so i am not new to modding. i have done a number of surface level modding and even part modeling. i have an idea for mod that goes into the programing aspect which as much as i would love to be able to do it. it is taking me longer to understand how to do in the confines of ksp. i do not know how hard it would be to do this or if it is even possible but anyway, so here is the idea. I think it would be a good a addition to carer mode/science mode if you needed resources to build your rockets. not just funds but also exp.. metal. some parts need resources from specific planets. you need to mine for some of the rarer resources to build with certain parts. simple idea for Prof of concept. you need Duna metal to build robotic parts and some of the more expensive engines you need a resource from Tylo to build RTGs you get the idea. each planet will have its own resource that you need to build with some parts. i would say i haven't given much thought to balance yet but i think it is possible. it should work like the funding system you need so many units of this resource to build this part. i think there should be 3 modes first 'easy ' where you can buy the resources for a high price in credits or if you do get the the resource it will cheapen the over all price to just the resource or a discounted price per part. 'normal' you cannot buy the resource but have to mine it and return it to Kerbin or with other mods like ground construction use it to build off world. lastly 'science mode' each part needing the resource would instead be lock to science entry exp- you get a surface sample off duna you unlock those parts. things that would need to be added: cost per part in the VAB and space plane hanger resources in the Vab display the resources, weight of each resource, each world's richness ect.. ( easily done with the community resource pack) each part would need to be set up with what its required resources would be and how much it would cost. drills will need to be set up with the ability to mine the various resources. will need tanks to carry the resources (Interstellar fuel switch or modular fuel tanks could be used to keep part count down) missions would need to be altered to include the resources and be locked to the resources from the planet in question they are requiring you to go to. optional: science experiments of the various resources. must be performed in a lab on site. option to set up a refinement process and combining process for really advanced parts ( mainly modded parts exp- near future nuclear. the reactors might need resources from ike and duna combined/alloyed few more thing not yet known..... thank you for all input and thoughts regarding this .
  8. UPR is a "mod". Really it's a bunch of config files and module manager patches but it's goal is to make a complete integrated mod experience for ksp. This means it integrates some selected mods together to create a system which is universal (i.e same UI, Resources and converters for all systems) The design concept is for it to be a Semi-realistic easyish stock looking and balanced game Source Code: https://github.com/Lach01298/UPR Current dependencies: WildBlue Industry's Tools Snacks CryoTanks Community Resource Pack Community Tech Tree DynamicBatteryStorage Rational Resources recommend/Integrated Mods Making History DLC Breaking Ground DLC WBI Pathfinder WBI DSEV NF Electrical NF Propulsion KIS KAS Features: Semi-realistic planetary resources i.e your not going to find every resource on every planet like what CRP is currently Semi-realistic life support (Food, Oxygen, Water) Planetary Base building/ Colonization Semi-realistic ISRU Metholox and Hydrolox fuel chains and engines part and equipment production chains integrated tech tree Other Stuff help and suggestions are appreciated and so feel free to do so Developmental notes This seems like a lot and it is. But this started as trying to get some of my favorite ksp mods to fit seamlessly together and separately trying to make them a little bit more realistic. Then it got all lump together into what currently is UPR. Thus it really should have another name but it was separate "mods" so i just kept one name that had a short acronym: UPR
  9. Rational Resources is designed to operate on the Community Resource Pack or the WBI Classic Stock resources and to strip out the entirely random resource distributions and to apply distribution templates (carefully configured groups of resource distributions) according to the logically expected class and composition of a body. Rational Resources is inspired by Realistic Atmospheres made by @OhioBob and is part of the JNSQ (the planet pack) experience. While this mod is installed, un-configured bodies will have no resources at all (except for less Ore than by default). This mod may inflate your ModuleManager cache quite a bit. Notice that the logo image tells the following: Mun has a sizeable portion of MetalOre and Oxygen, but no Water (will be handled by biome specific config) and no Uraninite. Kerbin has a sizeable portion of Rock and Silicates, and there's a display for crust, ocean and atmo. Duna has a sizeable portion of CO2 in crust and atmo (not in legend), MetalOre, RareMetals and Uraninite, but no Minerals or Silicates. This mod enables planet makers to easily assign these distribution templates to their planet packs and skip the headaches of figuring out and writing the individual nodes themselves, and assorting all of their writings into several per-resource config files. Active CRP Resources Surface and Atmosphere Ammonia, CarbonDioxide, ExoticMinerals, Gypsum, LqdHe3, Hydrates, Hydrogen, MetalOre, MetallicOre, Methane, Minerals, Nitrogen, Ore, Oxygen, RareMetals, Rock, Silicates, Substrate, Uraninite, Water. Ocean Carbon, ExoticMinerals, Gypsum, LqdAmmonia, LqdCO2, LqdMethane, LqdNitrogen, LqdOxygen, MetalOre, MetallicOre, Minerals, RareMetals, Rock, Water. Star Ammonia, Antimatter, Carbon Dioxide, LqdHe3, Hydrogen, LqdDeuterium, Methane, Nitrogen, Oxygen, XenonGas. The resources above are preferred and used. are patched to display them all. Ocean resources only show non-zero values when the scanner vehicle is splashed. The Star series templates apply resource bands to a narrow and general classification of stars, automatically making them all viable as mining destinations for interstellar vessels. The expected members of this seres are: Yellow; Red Dwarf; Red Giant; Blue Giant. Due to a very nasty bug in stock, any resource bands around a star can only have a a maximum span of somewhere under 2 Gigameters. WBI Classic Stock system support: Rational Resources shows in the WBI play mode switch UI. (Picture needs to be updated) Assigning a template to a planet is as easy as: Current templates ISRU With omnipotent Ore being stripped of its Godhood, the following ISRU chains are proposed and encouraged for use by seasoned modders. Ore abundance is capped to 5% and its presence chance to 80%. It will be inconvenient for most players... but it will still be around. Ore tanks will be changed, at least, to hold the cryogenic input resources. Players may find themselves forced towards using Hydrolox rocketry since the required resources (Ore or Carbon Dioxide) for LiquidFuel may often be scarce meanwhile the requirements for Hydrolox (Hydrates, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Water) can be quite abundant. Metals* = Can be the Metal and MetalOre resources used by Extraplanetary Launchpads (EL), Metals and MetallicOre used by USI, or Aluminium. Sorry, it can be a bit of a mess here. Oxidizer options do not appear when RealFuels is present. Compatibility Due to the listed resources and the nature of Rational Resources, compatibility instantly extends between configured planet packs and the following mods: Kerbalism (consumable resources only) TAC Life Support Near Future Tech suite Hydrolox rocketry mods (including BlueDog Design Bureau, Cryogenic Engines, Kerbal Atomics) Potential Methalox rocketry mods Some resources and their distributions are conditionally spared while the rest are removed. Spared resources include ArgonGas, XenonGas, but not Karbonite and Karborundum. Purged resources include Dirt (used by MKS alone but supplanted with more Rock) and any other mod that adds resources (and especially extremely handwaved ones) such as The Gold Standard. But a provision exists to allow such resources to not be purged.

  10. Привет. У меня вопрос. Я скачал этот мод и появилось 2 тренировки. также сканер поверхности показывает много разных руд и газов. но я не могу понять, где их хранить и как добывать. Я запустил их на космодроме, но там было написано что-то вроде: «Земля полна». Мне нужно настроить отдельный режим с ресурсами или я делаю что-то не так
  11. SIMPLEX Resources Download from Spacedock Requires Module Manager (not included). Licence is CC-BY-NC-SA http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/ Who would like to use this mod? Anyone who wants to flavour their stockish game a little, without jumping down a realism rabbit hole. Introducing an extended resource system for Kerbal Space Program. Rather than having a single non descriptive Ore for mining and converting to anything and possibly everything, this mod removes the stock Ore and replaces it. HydrateOre ices, and is used for making LiquidFuel or as a part of Life Support mods. Saturate effectively liquid HydrateOre. Where this is availble, either on the surface or under pressure, it requires less energy than HydrateOre to mine and process, but is not widely available. NaturalOre is used to generate MetalParts to build rockets (using Extraplanetary Launchpads). RareOre is used to generate CustomParts used to build rockets (using Extraplanetary Launchpads), and also in Life Support mods. XenonGas is able to be to extracted from the atmosphere of certain planets. ArgonGas is now available without CRP for mods StoredCharge is now available without CRP for mods specifically NearFuture Electrical. NuclearFuel and NuclearWaste are the fuels for reactors in NearFuture Electrical. CyroFuel is now available for CryoEngines and CryoTanks and replaces LqdMethane LH2 was been replaced CryoTanks, CryoEngines, and Kerbal Atomics for LFO engines, with names patched too. Asteroids contain NaturalOre, with a possibility of HydrateOre and/or RareOre. Comets contain HydrateOre only. In addition, this mod configures the extraordinary Extraplanetary Launchpads originally by skykooler, and maintained by taniwha. https://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/54284-151-extraplanetary-launchpads-v633/ Two resources are introduced for this purpose, extending the vanilla approach of EL. MetalParts and CustomParts are used in a unique recipes, making off world construction a little more complicated with two resources needed. What else does this mod do? The ration of LiquidFuel to Oxidizer in chemical engines is altered, and tanks ratios do the same. Vanilla KSP has a ratio of .9:1.1. This is now 1:3 meaning that a quarter of the tanks is LiquidFuel and three quarters is Oxidizer. As engines have been altered for this mix, there is no actual change to gameplay. However, it is much easier to find NaturalOre to bake Oxidizer out. HydrateOre and Saturate is rarer and requires higher tech to create LiquidFuel. It means that if tech isn't available, you could ship LiquidFuel and only mine and ISRU Oxidizer instead. What Planet Packs are supported? JNSQ OPM KSRSS GPP Isn't there a resource pack that everyone uses? I have worked to avoid conflicts with the extensive Community Resources Pack maintained by RoverDude. This mod is intended to be used separately to CRP. Mainly because I didn't like playing when mods provided tanks for dozens of resources that I would never use. Taking both pills won't cause serious damage. What part changes are made? The stock drills, Drill-O-Matic Junior (small radial drill), Drill-O-Matic (large radial drill) will collect all ores unless supported mods are installed. However, if any of appropriate supported mods are introduced the stock drills will only mine HydrateOre and Saturate.

  12. Hello everyone! Because I'm new to mod making (this is my first mod), I thought I'd try starting out with a relatively simple mod. I use a lot of mods, a few of which require Community Resource Pack as a dependency. Thus, whenever I scan a body for resources, I end up with a fairly large list of things, from Water to CarbonDioxide. However, I never end up using most of these resources, and as most mods only add converter modules for a few of them, the vast majority end up ignored. Many of these resources could be integrated fairly well with Stock mechanics without necessitating new parts or complex processing chains. Thus, this mod attempts to create uses for several resources added by CRP. This is essentially a collection of patches designed to allow stock parts to harvest and convert the resources added by CRP. It will be fully modular, so you don't end up with redundant converters or harvesters for resources you don't want, and it will only use Stock parts (primarily because I have no idea how to texture or model things, but keep that a secret). The stock drills are used for crustal resources, the atmospheric fluid spectro-variometer is used for atmospheric resources, and I plan on using the radial air intake for oceanic resources. For simplicity, resources such as LiquidFuel and Oxidizer are generalized, and are not intended to be fully accurate. In addition, the conversion factors for most of these patches are undoubtedly wrong, partially due to a desire for simplicity and partially because I can't be bothered. If you have a suggestion for a more realistic conversion factor, feel free to tell me! If I ever get into RO, I might consider adding patches for realistic ISRU, but for now I consider this to be a short-ish term project designed to practice my glorious and expansive config-editing skills. This might change depending on community reaction, but don't expect too much for now. In addition to this, I plan on including simplified conversion patches for those who don't want to bother carrying tanks for ~5 separate resources; an early example of this is substituting H2 for Ore (electrolyzed water ice) in the Simple Sabitier conversion. Downloads Installation 1. Download the mod 2. Install CRP and ModuleManager, either from the bundled download or from a separate source 3. Select the modules you wish to install. Do not install both the normal and simplified versions at once, as this may lead to issues Planned Features Green: Implemented Yellow: In progress Red: On hold Conversions -Sabitier | LqdHydrogen + CarbonDioxide = LiquidFuel + Water -Water Electrolysis | Water = LqdHydrogen + Oxidizer -Simple Water Electrolysis | Water = LiquidFuel + Oxidizer -Water Extraction | Hydrates = Water -Simple Water Extraction | Ore = Water -SolidFuel Refining | Alumina = SolidFuel (If I can find a way to allow SolidFuel to be moved) -Various processes involving MetalOre, RocketParts, MaterialKits, etc. Currently on hold due to the fact that mods that use these resources tend to include their own converters Harvesters -CO2 Extraction -Water Mining -Hydrates Mining -Argon Extraction -Xenon Extraction -Oxygen Extraction -Liquid Water Extraction -Oceanic Fuel Extraction (intended for Eve) -Hydrogen Extraction (Depending on availability in stock atmospheres) -Alumina Mining (See SolidFuel Refining) Other -Add part switching to the stock ore tanks to add capacity for every relevant CRP resource -More realistic resource ratios -Using ModuleManager to add these conversions to ISRU parts from other mods -Interplanetary resources, for use with Bussard collectors and such.

  13. Hello, I can't scan resources on asteroids with surface scanner module, What can be the reason ?
  14. Hi there! So I have this problem with all of my vessels with a scansat probe installed. Basically even if they are at the optimal orbit, they will scan the planet's map, but they won't show any resources whatsoever. I've also installed MKS and Khetane, is it possible that those mods are creating some sort of conflincts?
  15. I really prefer Karbonite to the stock KSP resource system but my mild OCD tendencies really hate it when redundant/unused systems pile up on each-other. Is there a way to disable the stock resource system and just replace it with Karbonite?
  16. Hey all. As of late I've been playing around a bit with module manager and just editing .cfg files, mostly as a way of familiarizing myself more with KSP's back-end, and partly because I do have some interest in maybe developing some kind of mods in the future, even if only for practice/personal use. Anyways, I spent the better part of my afternoon and evening today playing around with resource definitions and modules, and as a practice exercise I've been trying to make a simple set of .cfg files for a resource pack (Stuff like water ice, carbon, uranium ore, and processing these materials into other things with ISRU units). I get the gist of what I'm doing but there are a few things that I've yet to find answers to, and I'm looking for advice. Forgive me if my questions have been asked before. I did some googling, and found next to nothing, so I suspect this isn't a problem, but if so, please feel free to point me to the exisiting posts. 1) in the ResourcesGeneric.cfg file (GameData/Squad/Resources), what is hsp, and is it worth modifying for a new resource? 2) in the Ore.cfg file, I understand that I'm looking at the resource distribution parameters, but I don't know what Variance or Dispersal correspond to, also 3) is the PressenceChance parameter per planet? Per Biome? Per savefile? 4) still in Ore.cfg, what is ResourceType? I've yet to see an example of anything not equal to zero for that parameter... 5) It occurs to me that a few resource parts are configured by default to only work with the standard "Ore" resource, such as the Narrow Band Scanner, and the Drill Parts. Is there a simple way to make either of these function for all available resources, or must I add new modules to the .cfg for every mineable resource? 6) how do these changes apply to asteroids? do I have to use a MM patch to add mineral resource to a roid? Or are all of the other resource definition and distribution cfgs enough? I'm sure that I'm yet to encounter more questions on the topic of Resources, ISRUs, Drills, and scanners, so If you can think of anything else helpful for working on this kind of stuff, please, don't hesitate to fire your pointers my way! Happy Launching, happy Modding!
  17. In my mod GTI MultiMode Intakes, I am allowing switching between different intake modes. When doing this, I'm also changing the resources associated with the intake, like intakeair or intakeatm. However, so far, I've relied on "part.Resources.Clear();". This removes all resources in the part, and then I can add the new resource I want back in. However, this have one mayor drawback, it removes all resources, and not just the ones I want it to, namely the ones I target. So in my latest try, I used the below methods to target only relevant resources. However, I cannot seem to get them to work. public bool Remove(PartResource res); public bool Remove(string resName); public bool Remove(int resID); I tried as follows (i merged the three overload methods directly into the example below, I do NOT run them at the same time, I comment out when testing). Debug messages says that I do indeed run the "Remove()" method where expected and on the expected resource. The remove methods return true!!! But my engine continues to consume IntakeAir even when switched away, so that the resource should have been removed. When I use "Clear()" the engine flameout immediately as it should. And listing all resources in the part after all show that the resource was not removed. bool preserveResource; PartResource partResourceDef; //Evaluated all resources in part for (int i = 0; i < currentPart.Resources.Count; i++) { preserveResource = true; GTIDebug.Log("Check for resource removal: " + currentPart.Resources[i].resourceName, iDebugLevel.DebugInfo); //compare all resources to the target resources for (int j = 0; j < modes.Count; j++) { //If it is a target resource, mark it for replacement if (modes[j].resourceName == currentPart.Resources[i].resourceName) { //Remove resources managed by this mod preserveResource = false; break; } } //Remove resource if it is marked for replacement if (!preserveResource) { GTIDebug.Log("Removing Resource: " + currentPart.Resources[i].resourceName, iDebugLevel.DebugInfo); //try 1 currentPart.Resources.Remove(currentPart.Resources[i].resourceName) //try 2 currentPart.Resources.Remove(PartResourceLibrary.Instance.GetDefinition(currentPart.Resources[i].resourceName).id) //try 3 partResourceDef = currentPart.Resources.Get(currentPart.Resources[i].resourceName); currentPart.Resources.Remove(partResourceDef) } } So my questions are, does Remove() work at all? if yes, then can anybody point me toward what could be wrong in my code?
  18. ok this may not be the best place for this question but what are funds worth? I think paper money is a representative of a commodity like gold, silver, platinum. now in terms of ksp we have liquid fuel, oxidizer, monopropellant, solid fuel, Xenon, and Ore. so how do you determine what value the money is worth. on the wiki it says that ore cost 0.02 VF per unit of ore and if you fill one tank It only amounts to 30 VF so what is the worth of one fund unit?
  19. I've encountered what seems an odd phenomenon, that has helped strand a Kerbal in Munar orbit, without a ship. Here's a craft file: Selene 1 Mod 2 I launch this ship with RCS turned off, using main engine gimballing for control until staging. Once I stage away the booster, fairing, and nose cone (above 70 km only due to a spectacular demonstration of the drag still present at 40+ km and 1000+ m/s), I turn on RCS so I can maneuver before igniting the second stage engine to circularize (the second stage also performs transMunar insertion and Munar orbit capture before being deorbited on the Mun). This is where the odd thing happens. It takes a lot of RCS authority to turn the remaining stack at this stage (initially, with full tanks in all modules), and the center of mass is far enough forward that the Lf/O thrusters on the second stage tank get a lot of help from the four sets of RCS quads on the lander and pusher stages. However, the RCS on the lander and pusher stages don't consume fuel evenly from the command pods and RCS tanks, despite crossfeed being enabled on every decoupler and stack separator. Rather, the lander's RCS fuel is depleted first, with the command pod being emptied before the stack RCS tank is used, and both of those being burned dry before any fuel is drawn from the pusher (top module at launch). This doesn't seem to be a case of the game drawing propellant from the lowest tank first, which would make some sense for the usual staging order; rather, the command pod fuel is being depleted first. The only solution I see is to remember to manually disable the command pod and stack tank feeds before launch, and then manually re-enable them before I'm ready to decouple the pusher and turn it around to dock with the lander (a la Apollo, which is the configuration I adopt before Munar orbit insertion so the pusher is ready to maneuver itself and the lander as soon as the second stage is jettisoned). Am I missing something relative to propellant consumption order? I think this is the first time it's really matter which tank empties first -- but this time, it led to a Kerbal launching from Mun without enough RCS propellant left to assist when the main engine's tanks ran dry before establishing orbit. The pusher pilot, meanwhile, was sitting in a safe orbit, with a nearly full RCS tank, and no way to help...
  20. Welp, first time posting on this site as far as I can remember. I basically have a very simple (Though probably not at all simple to make) request for an idea I thought of while watching "Super Colonization" by Toxic Timewaster. Long story short, He said something along the lines of it taking 10 units of ore per 1 unit of karborundom to run his engines. Basically the request is this; There are mods to change the type of fuel in a fuel tank, and there are mods that let you make specific sized fuel tanks but as far as I'm aware, there is no mod for being able to put in some numbers to specifically fill a tank. What I want is a multi-fuel tank (Lets use 110 units as an example) to be able to customize its exact values, like if you set it 10 to 1, it's be able to fill automatically 100 units of ore and 10 units of Karborundom.
  21. The Resources in a Can or RIAC for short is a mobile, small and compact mining IRSU for small purposes. Able to be stored in very small cargo bays and land on small distant moons (Engines released pending completion.) Even tho it is of small size and stature it will be well suited to supplying roving probes with required fuel for much less then a full mining rig. This mod is still being worked on but it has reached a point where others can try it out and give feed back on changes or additions. Most parts are partly balanced, I need to mess around with weight, costs and storage amounts a bit more but it is at a usable state for now. More parts will be coming soon and I will be fixing the location of parts once I figure out the way to make a custom tab. <blockquote class="imgur-embed-pub" lang="en" data-id="a/YyLIU"><a href="//imgur.com/YyLIU">RIAC Development</a></blockquote><script async src="//s.imgur.com/min/embed.js" charset="utf-8"></script> Imgur Album Future Plans -A probe (possibly combined into the core/cores) (Complete) -A half core that can be used as a land based rover.

  22. Currently several lifesupport mods exist which is great. The user can choose by himself/herself whatever lifesupport mod most coïncides with his/her wishes. What is not so great is that every LS mod uses it's own resources. Take Food. In another mod it's called KolonySupplies, in a third N.O.M.S. My request to all LFS developers is to standardise resource names so parts of different mods can become interchangable.
  23. I have begun very basic work on a series of engines that combine mass driver, plasma creation, and the ultimate in recycling. Engines will have two grades, O.R.C. and E.L.F. Otherwise Really Cool Engines will heat its "fuel" mass to high gaseous state, ionize and expel for force. High cost of energy to the matter's density and boiling point, a bit more for ionization andd magnetic expulsion. So far a 1.25 I call Pele and a 2.5 I call Vulcan. Only fuel at this moment is the junkiest, but would be universal otherwise in being Rock. Performance curves in atmo like LN-V. So no mining rock on kerbal to get to orbit, well not reasonably. I am not making a cheat, but basing this on real scientific principles. I said basing, accuracy will of course deviate and that can be debated, but will not be this threads sole purpose. Stage two is in concept only ATM, everything is the same but more so, to get Electrodeless Lorentz Forces from a plasma you make from whatever. Thinking once I get how to flow and channel the thermal models in KSPI-E, I will use that as a power core. Next steps is an enigine module that will use a fuel data dictionary for settings about boiling points and specific heats, as well as density. Then the fuel determines the engines force, as all else will be as a level zone. This will make an interesting alternative for Depleted Fuel and similar things. It will be high density, so you would get 2-3 times the effect from rock in an ELF, but boiling points are much higher I believe, so an ORC maybe only 1.5 to 2, with higherr electric charge per second. These engines will take nearly impractical amounts of power. Nearly because the nuclear option is literally on the table, and will tend to pay off, or at least get close. I am looking to Coordinate with USI and KSPI-E, at least. ~Rough Draft~
  24. Configurable Containers Requirements ModuleManager AT_Utils (already included) Download from SpaceDock For Players This mod converts fuel tanks and resource containers so that you can change the resource(s) they hold in Editor and in Flight. Supported Mods Configurable Containers support many part packs and mods: TweakScale ProceduralParts Parts with stock resources converted: Stock KW Rocketry Mk2 Expansion Mk3 Expansion SpaceY-Lifters SpaceY-Expanded Fuel Tanks Plus Modular Rocket Systems Standard Propulsion Systems Near Future Propulsion Spherical and Toroidal Tank Pack OPT Spaceplane Parts (made by octarine-noise) Dodo Labs - Stockalike Electron Mk2 Hypersonic Systems Mk-X Hyper Propulsion …more will come. Supported resources: Stock TAC Life Support Extrapalentary Launchapads Near Future Propulsion All USI All KSPIE …more will come. Types of the Containers Tank Type is a set of resources that, gamewise, have something in common. For example gases, or liquid chemicals, or metals. There are also two kinds of configurable containers. Simple containers belong to a single Tank Type (which can be changed in Editor) and can hold only a single resource. In flight this resource may be changed only if the container is empty, and only within its Tank Type. Compound containers are in fact collections of simple containers inside of a single part. In Editor you can partition the inside space of such part, creating as many simple containers as you need. The only restriction imposed by KSP is that a part cannot have two identical resources stored. So if you have two containers for liquid chemicals in a part, only one of them can hold Liquid Fuel. Compound containers have a dedicated user interface so as not to clutter part menu: For Modders Source Code CC is a part of the AT_Utils framework. It provides the SwitchableTank module that allows for creation of container parts for predefined sets of resources switchable in-flight. Sets are configured in a separate .cfg file and are intended to contain similar things like gases (one set), liquid chemicals (another) and so on. Another module Configurable Containers provide is the TankManager which enables in-editor partitioning of a container, effectively converting it into a set of independent SwitchableTanks. The third, utility module named SimpleTextureSwitcher allows you to cycle through a predefined set of textures for the model or a part of the model, so a container may be easily identified. It is now part of the main AT_Utils.dll, not the CC itself. Acknowledgments My patrons on Patreon. Thank you for your support!

  25. I am making some science parts and I want to make them use resources to operate. For example: Rodent Research, uses five rodents. How can I do that?
