About me



  1. I usually use mods, but I've removed them all when this problem arose. Therefore I've put this into the unmodded section. No matter what part combo or fuel type, I cannot get any info in the editor or in-flight. it simply says 0 meters/s and when I click on it to get the more detailed info like TWR, it simply does not display any data within the box. Please help with this as it is making the game almost unplayable for me.
  2. After building a ship in the VAB, I hit launch but it doesn't work, the upper buttons just darken and it stays stuck on the VAB screen. I can't move, add, or remove parts on the craft. Please help.
  3. Hello! I tried to annotate each element so we can easily discuss it. Anyone dares to start? Image source:
  4. Hello, I'm texturing some big custom assets and I want them to look similar to the stock space center buildings. Do you know where I can find their interior and exterior textures? Or are they hardcoded? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  5. Simplifies vessel design by adding a visual "laser" grid and an automatic alignment tool to SPH and VAB License: GPLv3 Source code: GitHub Description Citation: "You should make your drawings with a ruler and a pencil, not with your leg and a marker pen." -- A maths teacher Have you ever been annoyed by ending up with misaligned engines or clubfooted landing gear after spending half-an-hour trying just to guess where to rotate to get them right? This mod adds a grid to SPH and VAB and "laser" guides for an active part to let you clearly see where the things are wrong and align them in one click. Download from SpaceDock Here's a video on why do you need it and how to use it Installation Extract contents of the released archive into your KSP/GameData folder. Usage While in SPH or VAB press the button to enable the grid. Once there's a root part you'll see the grid with origin bound to the part. If you try to add or edit another one you'll see the red "laser" guides representing all the three axes for it and all of its symmetry counterparts. Now you have all the planes and axes visualized and it's the matter of several clicks to align the things. The guides have distinct colors for each direction. You can easily remember them in the following way: Red for Rechts (Right) Violet for Vorwarts (Forward) Pink for Up (almost the same as the thrust vector) Once you have rotated a part to approximately face the desired side, use the following hotkeys for autoalign the desired part's axis to be parallel to the closest grid line (regardless of direction): Period ( [.] ) - toggles the grid on and off L - aligns the part by a guide at the mouse pointer to the closest grid line J - aligns the part's up (pink guide) to the closest grid line N - aligns the part's forward (violet guide) to the closest grid line M - aligns the part's right (red guide) to the closest grid line G - select a part under mouse pointer as the grid's origin K - toggles guides for symmetry (deKlutter). May be useful when working with many radially symmetrical parts creating a bunch of guides which makes them complex to use. This button let's you see the ones for the original part only. When using the separate keys for alignment (J, N, M), if you are in the part's editing mode (rotation or offset) it is sufficient to just press a key. Otherwise you'll need to move the mouse pointer over the desired part and then press. You can change the keys by editing HangarGrid.cfg in the mod's folder. Valid values are listed inside the file. Know issues Autoalignment of a part desynchronizes it's rotation and position to the current rotation gizmo. So if you press an alignment key while in rotation mode, it is recommended to re-enable the mode by pressing "1" - "3", for example. Otherwise once you touch the gizmo again the part jumps to the gizmo's present position and rotation. Planned features * A GUI for grid customization that let's you change the look and declutter the view abit.
  6. How do I turn off the 'elevator music' in the VAB? It's driving me (more) nuts! TIA, Frank
  7. I'm in sandbox mode, I go into the VAB, switch buildings (from inside of the VAB) and now all the buildings are level one. on the outside, it shows all level 3, but the requirements for launch are level one
  8. Hey I have installed RSS/RO/RP1 in KSP Version 1.11.1 and everything is working fine unless every time i test my vehicles with "KRASH" (mod) and I return then to the VAB the game crashes what is really annoying especially when you have to test a lot of stuff. I just want once a working Modpack that I can use then for a very long period and I am so close to it please help me with my issue. Here are some Log files in a Zip-file . https://www.dropbox.com/sh/dqvor74vhnwwzzp/AAD37R5px2gePgPIJnjKmfiya?dl=0 Best Regards, Christian
  9. Fresh install, unmodded, new sandbox game, version (WindowsPlayer x64) en-us / 1.6.0 Breaking Ground. Game crashes instantly after the following occurs while within either the VAB or the SPH: - New vehicle. - Select Mk1 Command Pod to place it as origin component. - Attach a TD-12 Decoupler to the bottom node of the pod. - Attach a C7 Brand Adapter - 2.5m to 1.25m fuel tank in default orientation to the bottom node of the decoupler. - Click on the placed fuel tank to "hold" it. - Press Ctrl-Z to replace the fuel tank. - Flip the held fuel tank upside down by tapping the W key twice. - Place the held fuel tank on the bottom node of the replaced fuel tank. This has also occured with the Kerbodyne ADTP-2-3 fuel tank. I have not tried every fuel tank, nor every game mode besides sandbox.
  10. As the title implies, your goal is to land on the roof of the KSC, however, this is not your every day land on the roof challenge: Tight engineering restrictions make this a true challenge, one for the can-do-all types. You have to be good not only at engineering an aircraft that fits the rules, but also have the hands required to put it where I ask you to, in the way I ask you to. You might post any attempt with any craft for fun, but competing runs must adhere to the following: Procedures & Rules: •To create a fair experience for everyone, mods are not allowed for competing runs, in any form, save for information mods like engineer. Parts, physics or skill affecting mods (such as airplane plus, FAR/NEAR or mechjeb's autopilot respectively) are definitely not allowed. Again, for clarification: NO MODS - Even if not doing so with malicious intent or even knowledge, you might be gaining advantages over all-stock entries. With the tight regulation margins of this challenge, that's something I can't allow. •Create an aircraft that meets the following criteria •Your aircraft, once built, has to take off from the default runway without any kind of assistance (towers for example), and land at the two helipads on the KSC rooftop. The flight and landing have to meet the following criteria: Lastly, to validate your entry, your aircraft must meet the following criteria after completely stopping: As you can see there's no score system, a successful landing with a craft that follows the rules is all you need. I'll probably make a badge or something to include in your signature. TL;DR - Short, precision landing competition for "standard" aircraft, except the runway is the two helipads on the roof of the VAB. Have fun. You can post entries that don't follow the rules as well, but of course they won't count. My attempt, includes F3 screen to show that nothing fell off after that little slide lol: https://streamable.com/7r7mm
  11. I have just reinstalled KSP v1.8.1 with RSS/RO/RP-1 amongst other mods I'll list from the KSP.log (some of which I never never used before and I have found no known conflicts between them) and a curious and very irritating bug has occurred. https://www.dropbox.com/s/05w6ekia76zosgg/Player.log?dl=0 - Player.log https://www.dropbox.com/s/fo44wtxbmf81hwb/KSP.log?dl=0 - KSP.log This issue has never occurred during past installs using ALL but the highlighted mods - see spoiler. SIDENOTE- Previous installs have used Principia but on this occasion, I chose to use PersistentRotation instead. KSP 1.8.1 64-bit - Win10 PROBLEM - Loss of green part highlights during flight and design while mousing over parts and editing of action groups disabled. STEPS - Design rocket - start KRASH simulation (highlight issue manifests) - Terminate simulation (highlight issue persists and editing of action groups doesn't work - including no editor dialog for RealChutes - to clarify - I can get to the Action Groups tab but cannot select any action group or part). TRIED - leaving and re-entering VAB - issue still apparent, exiting to main menu and reloading save - issue still apparent, closing application and re-loading - issue resolved until KRASH simulation started again. MODS installed (extract from KSP.log) - most have worked fine in previous install - new ones to me are highlighted in BOLD in the section 'Folders and files in GameData:' as not all are listed with version numbers. I don't know much about the KSP.log file and it's contents but I do have limited Java programming knowledge and NullReferenceExceptions are never good news, the following is an exert from the KSP.log file that appears at the time of the scene change from editor to flight (simulation) - I don't know if this is related to this issue but similar Exceptions are listed in following scene changes and in large numbers when returning from flight to editor - will show all Exceptions if required and requested. The only mod installed that i can glean from this exert seems to refer to the ClickThroughBlocker. Upon first load of this install (and any subsequent Career mode start) I received a pop-up that I believe is due to a recent update to the mod on this pop up, I select the previous default of following the mouse and not the click. I never installed this mod manually so I have to assume it is a dependent for another mod and was installed thusly and automatically by CKAN. Perhaps this new update is causing a conflict with one of the other mods? After investigation, ToolbarController is dependent on the ClickThroughBlocker which is in turn depended on by the Patch Manager which I believe is a mod that cannot be removed without wide ranging mod removals... My suspicions seems to have been confirmed - after rolling back the ClickThroughBlocker to version, the problem appears to be resolved after starting a new save. Will update again if the issue rears it's ugly head again. Re-updating CTB does replicate the problem, rolling back does fix it.
  12. Hello Everyone ! I have been working on a Space Center for my Lego City layout for a while and after 4 years most of it is complete. It has been was heavily inspired by the Kerbal Space Center, and my love of the game. Here is some pics of the center ! It's not to minifigure scale and some buildings need improvement but I'm happy with it. I was lucky to live near to a Lego Store, where I found lots and lots of white pieces for a reasonable price. I got the Lego Saturn V after I designed the building so it couldn't fit in due to the gigantic size of the Saturn V, so let's say this VAB is at Kerbal scale. All the space themed sets i got through the years finely add to the space center Overall view of the space center part in my city The VAB and SPH The Launch Control Center, with interior The launchpad The runway Interior of the VAB The Space Plane Hangar, I still need to finish th interior Landing of the Discovery Space Shuttle Crowd of people watching the launch Astronauts training for their next mission I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed building key elements of the game, fly safe !
  13. Who doesn't like a good KSC race? This one is simple: Jeb needs to pee and the only working toilet is in the VAB. He's no layman so he isn't using the front door. Get him from the launchpad to the Helipad atop the VAB ASAP! It's just that simple, get from the Launch Pad, to the Helipad in the shortest time. Parachutes are acceptable. Aggressive lithobraking is fine. Kraken driven trebuches are encouraged. Rules: 1. Craft is "Manned." 2. Kerbal must arrive alive. 3. No non-stock parts, DLC okay. 4. Stock physics. Helper and aesthetic mods are fine. 5. No cheating: hyperedit, F12, etc. The time stops when either; Your craft is moving less than 1.0m/s, or your Kerbal is Standing on the helipad. That's standing, not laying down. Videos are always more fun to watch but a pic of your craft on the launchpad followed by a pic of it on the Helipad will do. Make sure you show the time. Get creative, I'm guessing this is going to be a very tight race. The 5 Second Club: The 10 Second Club: Leader-board (Glitch/Kraken): 1. @dnbattley - 2 Seconds ... ... Leader-board (Traditional): 1. @dnbattley- 4 Seconds 2. @Pro100kerbonaut - 6 Seconds 3. @ZZetho - 11 Seconds 4. @Klapaucius - 16 Seconds ... Here is a little inspiration for you guys. I'm sure this time will get stomped pretty quickly.
  14. Pease make the previews larger. They are currently small and pixelated,. Why not make a a hover over option with a larger thumbnail?
  15. So I bought the breaking ground DLC for Ps4 Pro today and started a fresh carrier to avoide any corruption. I started on Hard difficulty with enabled revert and quickload. Also enabled part preasure and g-force for parts and kerbals with plasma blackout and require signal options. When I unlock the tech with FL-100 Fuel Tank it keeps duplicating and have to purchase the entry fee for that part over and over again whenever I enter tha VAB or the Tech tree, also this tank part is dupIicating every time I repurchase it, so by now I have 3 of this sane FL-100 at the tech tree. I already tried to delete and reinstall the game with the dlcs and also deleted every save file, but without any success of solving this tiny but anoying bug. Please, if you have any solution, I would be happy know.
  16. I've installed KSP in my, now main OS, Manjaro. With the vanilla game i had no problem, but after installing a couple mods, around 20, the frames in the VAB drop to around 3-5 per second. The problem is that in game, with a 120 plus parts the game runs absolutely smooth. Any suggestions?
  17. Is there another mod/way to have those little information panels (craft resources/info) in the editor scene without using KER? I like KER, but this is practically all I currently use it for.
  18. I have a small problem I was wondering if anyone could help me with? In the VAB the thumbnails on the top line in the parts selector are cut in half (se links) and it's driving me nuts. Does anyone know what could be causing this? I have the latest version of the (Steam) game and all DLC's installed. Link #1 Link #2
  19. How do I align my side booster to the west for exampel? So when I start the rocket and make a gravity turn the are exactly horizontal.
  20. I am encountering one of the weirdest bugs I've ever seen. I cannot add ANY command part that has a built in SAS module. Not only can I not place them on the craft when I try to do so they remove the node on the part I'm attaching them to while not attaching and then they proceed to break placing any other part and more or less all controls in the VAB and SPH including moving the camera, the exit button, the new button at times, the save button, all mouse controls but clicking on new parts. And the only way to recover is to if I'm lucky click new and if not load some stock premade craft. For the life of me I have no idea why such a weird bug is occuring.
  21. Goal: a bit helping to select proper experiment for mission. This simple plugin adds additional info about science experiment to its information panel (RightMouseClick). Now You can find info about situation when experiment will work and its relations from biomes while constructing your vessel in VAB. Also it adds usage requirements and can trace multiple experiments definitions in one part. Works in VAB-SPH only. Observed partmodules can be configured using CFG. So, it can trace parts containing stock science module "ModuleScienceExperiment", additional infos will be collected from its EXPERIMENT_DEFINITION node. Example cfg with nodes for stock science parts, OLDD, StationScience and DMagic's science parts are enclosed. Seems like it can trace any handmaded sciencemodules with its own names from different mods, but only if it were inherited from stock ModuleScienceExperiment. source DOWNLOAD
  22. My controls for delete, rotate lt/rt, time advance shortcuts and others are just not working. I have deleted reinstalled new gamed tried to go to sandbox science mode settings. Nothing works the controls just do not work. Outside of Vab/sph lt/rt work for zooming in and out so I know it's not the controller. Launching just a command pod I can yaw pitch rotate zoom etc no problems there but for shortcuts and construction the controls don't seem to work I am on Xbox one KSP enhanced edition.
  23. I just recently made a large modded install of KSP (1.5) after a long break and the game usually runs fine even with 120 mods. (32gb Ram, GTX 1060, i5 7600k). The problem I'm having now is when ever I'm in the VAB and place down more then one command module, or any other part with crew space, the games frame rate drops down to sub 10. The memory usage maxes out to the point where it's unplayable. As far as I know all my mods are up to date and the only pre 1.4.x mods are just part mods. Log: https://ptb.discordapp.com/channels/408786446535884815/408786446535884818/506911935707611157 Here's the mod list:
  24. For example, I set orange-grey textures for 1.8 tanks in in the VAB-list, and I want them to stay that way after reloading the game
  25. Here is the list of my mods (RealNames is for BDB which I haven't added yet, I was checking if the button will go away if I remove most of my mods): And here's an image of the problem I have, all this button does is contain a list of all parts (including mods): I have no idea how to get rid of it, any help? EDIT: The button mentioned is the beige teardrop on the left EDIT 2 (oof): I play on 1.4.5
