  1. Not ready to be reviewed on YouTube, still under heavy development Benjamin Kerman's Welding Supply Co. Is proud to present Ludicrous Propulsion Systems v. "Adding new throttleable hybrid engines and taller fuel tanks in all stock sizes since 4/11/17" Download here! (This alpha release includes just the hybrid engines and an interstage plate) Description: Have you ever felt tired of having to stack two Rockomax Jumbo-64's on top of each other? Have you ever felt like you could use a set of longer 0.625m Liquid Fuel Tanks? Have you ever wanted THROTTLEABLE SOLID FUEL BOOSTERS??? Well, you are in luck! Ludicrous Propulsion Systems adds all of these things to your game, as well as radial-size adapting LFO engines! Hybrid SRBs, longer and even longer fuel tanks, and more, LPS is the only solution to high part count. Pics!!! This mod is licensed under a MIT license. I have spent many hours working on the code, so I would appreciate it if you don't pass it off as your own work without at least mentioning me. Copyright (c) 2017, @Benjamin Kerman and @hedgey579 Source Code: The code is functional, but uses stock textures. We are still working on the final models and textures. I would be grateful for anyone to go through the code I have so far and make a bug report if you find anything wrong about it. Planned Features: Changelog: Known Problems: Compatibility: Ludicrous Propulsion Systems is currently compatible with: Engine Igniter: Download Engine Igniter Not compatible with KSP 1.3 RealPlume support coming soonTM Contributions: @hedgey579: Doing all the modeling and being my "partner in crime". @linuxgurugamer: Thanks for answering all my questions about .dll files. @Streetwind: Thanks for answering my questions about the differences between all the kinds of mods. @Nertea: Thank you for getting me into modding, as your mods were the first I downloaded. @Supercheese: Help with balancing part prices. Want to help? Feel free to make a pull request on my GitHub page for any of your mods. This mod includes ModuleManager (MM) and miniAVC, all credit for those goes to the authors @sarbian and @cybutek respectivly.
  2. ATTENTION: The Curseforge link has been removed since I no longer have the time to maintain it. Anyone who would like to maintain the Curseforge page, please PM me. This is mainly a repackaging and expansion of DeltaDizzy's Flag Pack. It consists of 11 flags by me and 14 by @cratercracker. Now compatible with Decal Stickers by @blackheart612. blackheart612 had no role in this mod's development. If you encounter a bug, report it with the Github Issue Tracker. If you don't, it will be ignored! You can use it in 1.3, but it has not been tested. cratercracker's flags are marked with the prefix "CC". Mine are Marked with the prefix "DD". It is compatible with all versions of KSP that support PNG flags. It only contains flags and the config files for the Decal Stickers. My flags were made in, and cratercracker's were made in MS Paint. Examples: All code is licensed under GPLv3. If you have contributions or suggestions, comment here: DOWNLOAD: Github These mods can improve your experience: You will need this if you want to take advantage of the compatibility. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  3. Venus she's easy! or maybe not. She's hot, and has great tracts of land. Not that its a high pressure arrangement to sample her wonderful science. It will take more time to float to her surface than to do three full moon missions. Playing a Career mode game (Hard setting except for load/save allowed) using RSS as my baseline mod. This is a 1.2.2 game so I’m using SMURFF, SpaceY and other mods to get to an acceptable power to weight ratio for launches, Using tweakscale and procedural fairings, SXTcontinued and near future mods for extended tech tree parts, community tech tree and SETI for an unmanned first push, TACLS for life support and I'm full enforcing a cleaned up orbit ( If i have to delete space junk it costs me 100k funds) and use Stage Recovery to get funds back (Set 7k Burnup Speed and 7-14m/s Landing, otherwise default) I tested various re-entries to make sure the 7k Re-entry speed was actually survivable for my designs. SCANsat and CactEye pad out the game but I’m using Comnet with only KSC ground station instead of RemoteTech for communications. Um oh and 104 mods in my CKAN installed list total... I have Saturn Second stage Nuclear and Timberwind nuclear engines in custom modded items, generally don't use them, specifically only on missions leaving from above 500km orbit. None of the designs is dangerous outside of the basic nukes in space argument. I use a minimum of 12m from crew compartments as a design requirement for nukes. Some of the more extreme nuclear engine design would warrant more though. If I’m using a Timberwind 450 the engine is likely 30m+ back just because of the amount of tank it needs to be useful. Regardless once i get the SSME available it was all that for main and second stages. I use Solids only if really needed or its a real simple mission. After Luna I started deciding what to do next, mars window was way out and I started to investigate Venus first. Time to set up comms. I probably could have got away without the comnet first but I believe its the first step given how many missions have failed because communications are crap. It also eliminated the need for huge antenna on the landers and probes. COMSATS Venus Comsat Network, sent 4 relays in an array planned aero-braking to drop dV, middle of aero-brake maneuver, deflated heat shield, and ejected compacted relay sats, barely staying out of atmosphere, each sat had barely enough maneuver 680m/s to get circular in a reasonable Eq. orbit. in trying to switch craft during the near disaster, got locked onto the structural frame that the relay sats coupled to during transit, (just some pipe sections a de-orbit motor and small probecore, mechjeb, antenna and batteries, one small solar panel). nothing burned up, very close but high drag really slowed it down fast. followed to ground, it litho-braked with the sacrifice of one of the spent couplers and I got my first Venusian data (telemetry & temperature). The Comsats got me a few more experiments and squarish 1200km orbit network (Intended to be 3000km). SCANSATS Scansat probes went out next, didn't have SAR yet. Radar altimetry, Biome scanner and Survey scanners along with High orbit and Low Orbit Science Sats, discovered that venusian day is longer than its year! Very long scan time, skipped two useful transfer windows. As the last of my Apollo moon missions finished scienceing the crap out of the moon I sent a second science/Scansat wave. SAR high altitude, recon and Survey detail sats along with my missing space science. Took a while to get all the gravity scans. Kerbal Alarm Clock estimates took front stage. My first comsats & scansats went to mars during this time so it was hectic. Descent to the surface! Originally I had intended to ignore Venus landings unless the were historical missions from RSS Historical missions pack. However the ease of landing space junk on the surface made me prioritize it given the shorter transfer and delay times for manned missions and sample return. Venera Missions, first two missions sent using my best guesses and did not include all the instruments since I did not have all at this point, using DMagic's instruments also. Midlands for the win. Stopped using the Inflatable shield because it was to hard to control drag, and it flipped on my first mission, lucky that a couple of solar panels was all that was lost. Landers overbuilt soviet style. Found out parachutes won't deploy at 12m/s in 70atm. drogue shoots in pre-deploy would not stop spinning, but full deploy brought the landers down straight. Any lifting surface is detrimental to landing except maybe airbrakes/gridfins. Reality is that they probably melted on the way down since they didn't include temperature control of any kind. past initial re-entry anything that is dropped will make it to surface probably with a safe speed (kinda 12m/s seems like max on higher terrain). Major Probe Volley! After re-design of the probes, left me with R2D2 looking canisters filled with science I tried sending two for testing. Mainly finding more accurate landing position. The agonizing wait during the drop! don't like x4 physical landings regardless of speed, read a book, made some tea. Determined that below 50k altitude ASL engines are indeed totally useless. Determined total batteries i could get away with. Solar is great assuming they survive re-rentry heat. Next eight came in as a docked cluster. Horrible experience with all eight lagging my computer. They consisted of unmanned landers, transmit only, everything possible to fully transmit, all biomes. Still very slow descent, probes hit 11m/2 without drogues, tiny landing gear, set of small airbrakes. Temperature was not an issue, though activated thermal panels cooled the pods. Even at 4xphysical time warp the descent was horribly long, cheated gravity to x10 for the 4th and later probes just to lessen the real time spent on the mission, took over 4 real hours to get all biomes sampled. Noticed during the first and second mission that engines and RCS became useless for anything except re-entry phase, determined 300-800 m/s of retro and 40-50 RCS got a good accurate landing, both mechjeb and trajectories projected over shot landings. Rovers might be faster than planes on venus. Trajectories as usual seemed more accurate. Sample return! Attempt one consisted of a real simple pod, stack of ascent rockets, stack of batteries and eight ducted fans. ran out of batteries at 20km, drag was to high for the system to get up. Second try replaced most of the batteries with capacitors and almost made it. The ducted fans didn't have enough thrust to get me above the point I needed for thrust on my bottom stage (4xlarge Ullage motors with flat ISP). floated back down. Third try, nukes, capacitors in drop pods, more ducted fans (too many). the ducted fans started crashing the computer with some bad interaction of mechjeb's dV calculation. Think it had something to do with staged capacitors, the ducted fans and some kind of circular calculation. After 12 program restarts including one full on computer freeze I gave up on the ducted fans. I think it can work. Fourth try, Balloons! Used the HL inflatable parachute. Made it too small. I didn't see the dirigible icon in VAB so I undersized the balloon and it wasn't enough to get me up to 50km. Also discovered the kraken hates unbalanced balloon lifted craft, spinning it until my probe core sped off at Sol escape velocity. Try Five. Bigger balloon, used RoverDude's control pod. was great but in dropping from the balloon frame I clipped a tank and blew up. Try Six. made it to orbit. Barely 165x147km Orbit and forgot a docking port. Using a Timberwind 45 design basis Nuclear rocket for everything except initial separation and orientation. Tumbled a lot, need cleaner separation and deploy-able control surfaces. Spinning and very slow ascent to be safe enough. Agonizing pain of slowly changing inflation of the balloon as the velocity dropped below 10m/s. Going above 30 resulted in explosive spin (actually five iterations of this design blew up on ascent) because I got impatient and inflated too fast. Try Seven. Changed balloon “Cirrus” real lift variant, started including life support (TACL) and more support in general. (return vehicle prepositioned in 350x350km EQ orbit). Lift vehicles started passing 500k for the missions, plus one 180k refueling mission in my planetary band parking orbit. Determined need for 140+ days on orbit life support and ~100days transit (3500m/s dV transit + 3000dv to bring it into parking orbit for re-use). So generally needing 13k dV for fast missions. Total life support of near a year. Loaded Solyent Green/Red life support mod for TACL. Tested 5 iterations most problems were hard to control on drop, re-entry. Had one burn up too bad for use, two had hard landings as they came in at an angle and fell over. Try eight. After a successful orbit and rendezvous and realizing my rcs balance and SAS sucked on the final manned return pod, removed all but 5days LS from pod. Pod is located inside a set of cargo-bay modules, Three cooling stages are included, larger amount of RCS. Has about 1200dV to spare for any orbital maneuvers. First unmanned test, drop from balloon at 0.35atm, drop first stage tanks, drop second stage tanks, drop third on way to circ burn, mechjeb ascent.... takes me in 180deg counter orbit. 14kdv to get plane change. /sigh Second test I get to balloon separation and drop, launch and start up, run into balloon and explode. Load and try again, manually pilot, then beginning the ascent guidance to nice clean 350k orbit. Try Nine. new design includes sepatron to get balloon spun away from vertical. Full flight plan unmanned test including return using a large nuke powered 5m transit bus. Optimized the balloon to get a stable point of 100m on earth, gave me >1atm on venus lift final so ascent using my normal motors is possible, Used timberwind 45 again as ascent motor and staged the tanks on layered side pods. Transit bus includes LS reprocessing, cargo bay with supplies and excess life support equipment space for 3 crew (Intended for one man missions) that includes an earth orbit return pod. Is 10tons of Fairing excessive? 750k funds to orbit, a refueling and off it went. Mission went great, max inflated to balloon from ground level, it goes supersonic immediately and starts climbing fast (150m/s peak), drop the science and landing gear stage just as take off happens. Nice stable verticle ascent with a little wobble. Fins might help be they are hard to include. Ballon shot clear and spun off to the side, ascent arced nicely past it and almost all my spare dV went unused. Docking went a little rough, not sure if its the Covered Jr. docking ports I used. So now I have an extra emergency return vehicle in orbit. 5million Funds well spent. Time for Real Manned Mission(tm). Manned (Womaned) Mission! Valentina did the first mission solo 144days of waiting, 96d+102d transit, 5 seconds of EVA (hot hot hot), and many minutes of up and down above venus. Now for 7 more times, all in transit, Valentina sits in the abort return vessel. A spare lander is coming along also. Rescue mission at worst case or if I miss a biome target. Best case 1.2m worth of orbiting space junk. Thought about exploring using a rover or folding aircraft, but its way to slow unless I’m right on a boundary even then its a serious mission to get one and also have the balloon launched rocket in the same place. I kinda doubt i could even get close enough for a rescue mission to actually work. Should have positioned a grapple rover to avoid to EVA problems (fire clad space suits). Now on to more missions, to places like the canyons (looked kinda dunish to me) as harley kerman plants his flag...too hot, oh well maybe just the EVA report. I wonder why he had that red bar over him during his EVA. I think I heard him swear at the ground control. Glad I installed chatterer also glad I didn't waste weight on the ladders. Kerbals must be highly compressible mushrooms! Manned mission ascents on venus involved, SAS set to radial out, gridfins retracted, set balloon inflation to 100%, drop landing stage and speed off into the sky. Final peak ascent speed 192.5m/s at 12-15km. Crossed 50km at 150m/s and dropping rapidly. oscillated at 0.80-0.63atm ~55-56km. Set mechjeb for ascent 350km -180deg Inclination (because 0=180deg on Venus for no apparent reason), Ascent path numbers [60km, 100m/s, 250km, 1deg, 35%] Let go of balloon, fire engines, active autopilot. Orbit 350x349km with 1600-1800m/s maneuver fuel, meet up with transit bus at 300km orbit. Off equator I had the bus maneuver a bit for plane changes. In those cases I had left it in a higher 500km orbit and it performed most of the plane maneuvers. Venus Rotates so slow that I didn't ever spend more than 500m/s to get co-planar even considering the lack of control over launch window. Only needed 100-300m/s to compensate for any bad timing in the Hohmann transfers. That said I’m pretty sloppy with rendezvous maneuvers. Really want RP-0 1.2.2 now, need to try this again. (Am i a masochist?)

As always, please post any issues you find, or questions/suggestions you have. I hate to see really great mods languish, so I'm going to try to bring NovaPunch up to date. The original mod thread can be found here. I know, "No pics, No clicks". So here's a start, with some of the sample rockets: ![]() Imgur Gallery with other images: (Nov 20, '16 Updated to include a sampling of the engines) Change Log Next Major Step: Start working on getting the legs functional (Gotta learn Blender and Gimp, so this won't be quick. Still to do overall: (In no particular order) RealPlume support Other stuff as I think of it Listen to your comments and suggestions Look at other requested mods once I get this one fully up to date. Tiberion's shuttle parts has been requested. I'm up for that, but I need to get a handle on Blender & Gimp. Interested? It's on Spacedock only, for now.

  6. Right after Christmas 2016, I made one Steam backup and one Windows 10 backup (that one by just copying the KSP folder and moving it into another folder on my desktop), then used the built-in Steam functionality to downgrade my game to 1.1.3 in order to install Real Solar System, Realism Overhaul, Realistic Progression Zero and all of the recommended mods using CKAN. What do I do now that KSP RSS RO RP-0 can be played on 1.1.3? How do I update the game? (I'm new here, so I'm being conservative on the formatting before I can develop a pattern.)
  7. Originally designed by @Xaiier as an advanced successor to the popular Dynamic Warp mod, this mod gives you complete control of time in KSP by allowing you to slow down time to get those cool explosions on video(or find out why your rocket is blowing up on the pad), boost the rate of time to ridiculous levels without loss of precision to ease those long burns, set custom warp rates and per-planet custom altitude limits, utilize automatic warping, and monitor the physics engine and game performance. @westamastaflash has updated the code for several iteration of KSP, and now to celebrate a lot of rewriting code, a new thread, as promised! Download current release on GitHub. Compatible with KSP 1.2.2. Curseforge Project Site December 28, 2016 - New release, version 2.5. Compile for KSP 1.2.2 MiniAVC added back in. @linuxgurugamer fixed minimize button to be a 'close' button instead to eliminate confusion. Please add issues or enhancement requests to the issue tracker! Source Code also on Github. MIT License. I am working on a brand new user interface for the mod using the Unity asset editor instead of the IMGUI functions. For 1.3 for now, @linuxgurugamer has recompiled the mod (see the last post). This mod includes version checking using MiniAVC. If you opt-in, it will use the internet to check whether there is a new version available. Data is only read from the internet and no personal information is sent. For a more comprehensive version checking experience, please download the KSP-AVC Plugin. Usage: The three letters at the top of the window allow you to switch operation modes between slow-mo, hyper warp, and the rails warp editor. In the Space Center and Tracking Station, only "R" is available. Slow-motion: Hyper warp: Rails editor: ? Settings and Information Changelog Time Modding Notes (by Xaiier)
  8. Hello guys, I'm a new user to the fourm. I've been playing KSP for quite awhile on Windows, and it works great, but when I try to run on Ubuntu with limited Mods, the game crashes half-way through loading. I will post my KSP.log below. [snip]
  9. Game crashes as soon as try to EVA crash.dmp error.log ksp.log output log
  10. Important note! Do not use on KSP 1.1.0! Weird things will happen, and it won't work! It requires at least KSP 1.1.1! About: This is an update of Vendan's mod of the same name. Like the original, Kerbals will now use Monopropellant for EVA fuel, instead of getting unlimited free fuel. The Kerbals take 5 units with them when they leave the ship, and return any leftover fuel back to the ship when they re-enter. New to this updated version: Rescue contract ships will give Kerbals 1 unit of fuel to reach safety, instead of leaving them totally stranded. Kerbal Inventory System's EVA tanks will also use Monopropellant to refill. (Props to IgorZ for the help.) The fuel type and fuel conversion ratio is configurable. (Much thanks to Shinsaka.) License & source code: The license is still MIT, like Vendan's original. The code is now at: Downloads:!3BZDxLJZ!RLnUBPlFUSV5Mn0LoJ08lg CKAN: The version for KSP 1.2.2 is live on CKAN. Changelog: Known issues: Entering a ship that has no monoprop storage causes the EVA fuel to vanish into the ether. Incompatibilities: Kerbalism Kerbalism and this mod both do similar "Kerbals use monoprop for EVA" things, and Kerbalism also changes the Kerbals to actually use straight monoprop instead of EVA Propellant. (This last part is especially confusing to EvaFuel.) Uninstallation: If your KIS EVA tanks don't work after removing this mod, open the saved game in a text editor, and replace all instances of ModuleKISItemEvaPropellantProxy with ModuleKISItemEvaPropellant. This should only be a problem if you used exactly version 1.1 of EvaFuel.
  11. Seeing as Principia is getting to the point where it is quite useable, it seems to be a good time to do this. The challenge is fairly straight forward. A space station has been placed in a magical square orbit around Mun. The objective is to pilot the cargo vessel, which is in low Kerbin orbit, and rendezvous with the station, using as little delta V as possible. You will need a 1.2.2 installation of KSP with a stock planetary setup, and Principia Catalan, then load this save file. Rules: No use of cheats or performance altering mods. Telemetry and visual enhancement mods are allowed. Since this is not a docking challenge, you only have to park within a 100 meter distance from the station, with a relative velocity less than 0.3 m/s. Submissions are scored based on how much delta V remains after rendezvous is complete. The Kerbals must not exit the station. Also crashing into the station to slow down is not allowed The time limit is 5 Kerbin years. This is just a technicality since I can't be certain the orbit of the station will be stable 1000 years from now. This is not a super serious challenge so extensive documentation is not really required. Just post an screenshot showing your overall approach, and one after you've completed the challenge showing how much delta V you have left. However, feel free to show your approach in greater detail if you complete the challenge with a small amount of delta V.
  12. DeltaDizzy's Flag Pack This thread has been moved and renamed at @cratercracker's request. The new thread can be found below.
  13. Hello everyone! Kerbal Space Program 1.2.2 is live! Here's the changelog for this patch: =================================== v1.2.2 ============================================================ +++ Bug Fixes * Fix crash to desktop when using Aero Overlay display and Part highlighting in Flight. * Fix one final GUI flickering issue regarding the Parts List Scrollbar. * Fix CommNet occlusion multiplier GUI setting. * Fix to prevent kerbals with existing name being created. * Fix MPL(Science lab) ladder sliding. * Fix Grass textures around Research and Development Facility. * Fix for corrupt save files breaking the resume menu. * Fix where some science experiments only trigger once on action groups. * Fix part action menus remaining on screen when switching to the Astronaut complex. * Fix Building Picker Lines in Space Center not being cleared when application loses focus. * Fix null reference exception when overwriting SubAssemblies in VAB/SPH. * Fix resource converters load percentage display not updating after start/stop. * Fix for several issues with the KSC flagpole outside the Administration Centre. * Fix for vessel on the Launch pad at Baikerbanur (KSC 2) blocking ability to launch vessels from the KSC. * Model fixes to the large drill part. * Fix some more Text overflows in GUI. * Fix where Fairings Disappears After using settings in flight. * Fix for strut connectors attaching below surface on SRB-KD25k. * Fix edge smoothing on Mk1 Inline. * Fix particle effects on drills. * Fix asteroid drill mass calculations. * Fix for selecting/focusing craft that are very late for maneuver nodes. * Fix for contracts app showing the wrong number of contracts. +++Modding Stuff * Add a common base class to all gameevents to allow mods to register and fire their own gameevents. * Add method for searching for gameevents and mods can register to other mods gameevents. * Add title to ResourceInfo so we can have a displayname that's not the key. +++LoadGameDialog When a game is saved it now creates an associated metadata file - called .loadmeta alongside the .sfs. This file contains a hash of the sfs save. When the loadgame dialog opens it will compare the hash in the .loadmeta file with the hash of the savegame, and if so it will use the data in the .loadmeta file for the load dialog details instead of parsing the whole save file. +++Miscellaneous Stuff * Biome refresh for Ike, Moho and Dres. * Add Right-Shift as a default secondary binding for editor scroll when not OSX. * Stop inactive aero/thermal data being shown in the editor scenes. * Add display format to difficulty options values. * Vessels now remember active navigation (Waypoints) when loading save games. * Apply Engineer bonuses to drills and ISRU correctly. * Update more details in DOxygen api docs. Cheers!
  14. Hello people of ksp! I have been having a problem with loading up ksp. its in both 1.2.2 and 1.3, and here are the mods I have: BDArmory, Cameratools, Hullcam VDS and scatterer. How do I post the crash log? thanks.
  15. Hello, I'm running the steam version of KSP and while I am able to run the 32bit version any attempt to start 64bit has resulted in an instant crash before even entering the loading screen. I have attempted to start in clean versions of both 1.3 and 1.2.2 to no avail. I am running 64 bit windows 10 version 1703 build 15063.296 with 16GB of RAM, Intel i7-4790 and a Geforce GTX 1060 SSC with MSI afterburner v. 4.3.0 and Rivatuner at v.6.5.0. 1.3 Crash logs 1.2.2 Crash logs If any other information is needed please ask. *UPDATE* Updated Rivatuner to 7.0.0 Beta 19 and Nvidia driver to 382.33. Issue has subsided, remove at earliest opportunity or leave open for future reference.
  16. So, I finally came back to playing KSP, gradually and carefully built my mod list... only to realize that the game is unplayable with my mod setup (nothing excessive, mind you - all fits under 2Gb). I have not "the latest and greatest" but still a pretty decent CPU, GTX780, 16G ram. EDIT: Removed "observations from prior versions" comment because I did proper testing with 1.1.3 and found that it was just false memory on my part - tendencies are the same in terms of slowness (except that 1.1.3 is ~25-30% slower overall). Now in 1.2.2 (identical behavior in 1.2.9, at least for those mods that work with it) I see huge performance hits. Example: a 300-part airplane on the runway: 1. Full stock: 50fps, down to 35 over ocean (btw, why such a drastic drop in fps, when there is little to render and nothing has changed in physics/parts?) 2. Scatterer: 48-35 fps 3. Scatterer + Kopernicus + SVT: 41-29 fps 4a. SVE + SVT (+EVE, Kopernicus, Scatterer)): 21-12 fps 4b. Same mods, but flying Aeris 3a: 60-44 fps (!!!) 5. KJR only: 31-12 fps (!!) So, these are heavy visual mods and one physics mod, so one would expect a performance hit (even though it was not nearly as noticeable in 1.1.3). BTW, at no point do I get 100% CPU core usage - at most it goes up to ~75%, with a couple more cores at ~25-30%. Graphics is definitely not the bottleneck either (see 1 and 4a/b above). So, what if we install a few essential and light-weight mods that should, in theory, have minimal impact on in-flight performance? 6a. MM, Toolbar, Better burn time, Better time warp, KAC, CCK, CRP, CTT, AGX, EasyVesselSwitch, EditorExtensions, KAS, KIS, MechJeb2, Docking alignment, Vanguard Parachutes, no KJR, same 300-parts airplane: 31-25fps (just a reminder - 50-35fps in pure stock). 6b. Same mods, but flying Aeris 3A: 60 fps (limit!!!). At some point I tended to blame the total memory footprint as being the culprit, but it does not seem to be the case - although total RAM consumption and part count (existing in game, not on vessel on in the scene) does have some effect, it is nothing compared to number of mod DLLs installed. Conclusion: what (tf) is going on here? Why mods that should not work on per-part basis (visual enhancements, utility non-physics mods) slow the game down proportionally to the size of the craft? And even if, for some bizarre reason, they are called on each part, why the execution is so slow for what is essentially just a few lines of code (from my long-past days of hands-on programming, this feels like every call to third-party procedures is wrapped in several layers or extreme debug exception handling - btw, no exceptions reported in the log)? Do you experience something similar, or perhaps you have 200 mods and more than 5GB in GameData folder and yet everything runs just as smoothly as in stock? Either way, please report your experiences here (keep it civil, avoid excessive quoting, and include your rig configuration and specific test results if available).
  17. Hi, I'm playing KSP for 2 months and have Some Experience, But to Some cause, I needed to re-start my Game and Now I'm in Early-Mid Carrer. As in this Phase Many, Build subassemblies for Fast and Effective Missions. Most subassemblies are Launcher. I want to Request our Modders to Create a Mod that creates a Report for a Launcher about its Specification. I.E. Weight, Thrust, Delta-V, Thrust Vectoring, Speed and most Important for Choosing a Perfect Launcher, A Launch Capability Report, about, Weight to Low Kerbin Orbit, Kerbin Stationary Transfer, Stationary Orbit and Trans-Munar and Trans-Minmas Injection Orbit. Plz Recommended An Mod or Create one, Its an Idea for Modders not a Planned Project. Plz ,Thanks
  18. OK. I'm a semi-new player, and i started with ckan because once i found the "advanced tweakables" option in settings, the game got pretty simple... on ALL difficulties. but, I'm still new and with the volume of mods... basically, I'm looking for a "must-have" list of mods that are realism based, add a bit more challenge, and DON'T add too many buttons. the 70 some mods i have are mostly parts (science mostly, but also bases and colonization-type), and seti/umbm/tac... but they seem to rely on other mods that create buttons on the toolbar that get overwhelming at this point. so,.. I NEED YOUR HAAALP! lol
  19. In KSP 1.2.2 there is an extension for GameEvents that allows mods to register their own GameEvents and for any Mod to find and register a callback for said GameEvents. How to use (example): Define your GameEvent as a static in Mod A: public static EventData<Part, ProtoCrewMember> onKerbalFrozen; and Initialize it somewhere early before ModB tries to find and register it. onKerbalFrozen = new EventData<Part, ProtoCrewMember>("onKerbalFrozen"); Find the GameEvent and register a callback in ModB: private EventData<Part, ProtoCrewMember> onKerbalFrozenEvent; ... //in say Awake or Start: onKerbalFrozenEvent = GameEvents.FindEvent<EventData<Part, ProtoCrewMember>>("onKerbalFrozen"); if (onKerbalFrozenEvent != null) onKerbalFrozenEvent.Add(onKerbalFrozen); //don't forget to remove them in OnDestroy: if (onKerbalFrozenEvent != null) onKerbalFrozenEvent.Remove(onKerbalFrozen); Fire your event at the appropriate time from Mod A: DFGameEvents.onKerbalFrozen.Fire(this.part, CrewMember); ModB callback will be called.
  20. I have built my own engines for KSP by the usual methods; Blender, Unity, and then modifying a .cfg file to fit my specific engine. The engines work just great in KSP 1.1.3. However, when I install them in KSP 1.2.2, they have no thrust. They use fuel, produce smoke, and make noise; they just do not have any thrust on the pad and no thrust is computed on the stats in the VAB. I am using a completely stock install of 1.2.2, except for the engines, which are in their folder under GameData. Here are two photos of the same part in action in both versions. Here is my .cfg file: PART { name = hybridFirstStage module = Part author = Peter Balholm, after Kartoffelkuchen mesh = rescaleFactor = 0.7 node_stack_top = 0.0, 33.42, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 0.0, 1 node_stack_bottom = 0.0, -4.4, 0.0, 0.0, -1.0, 0.0, 1 TechRequired = start entryCost = 0 cost = 2000 category = Engine subcategory = 0 title = Hybrid First Stage Engine manufacturer = Sarawak Tank Company description = A hybrid rocket engine which can be clustered to build the first stage of the Cassandra rocket.

  21. I will introduce the Black Hole Tanks Mod. (As soon as i have a picture of its modal i will upload it) The Black hole tanks mod allows one to use the Two tanks (One LFO and the other Ore) to hold large volumes of material (such as Ore and LFO) in a Smaller package than would normally be required. Make by Daquan Kerman the two tanks Dry mass is 20 tons (in order to discourage intrepid SSTO Users from adding 15 Mamoths to it) but holds an amazing 12000 LF and 14666.67 Oxidizer. the Ore tanks wet mass has yet to be determined. The tanks do retain their full wet mass, as in order to also discourage its use as a main stage fuel tank for it is meant for Satellites and ground stations Im trying to build some support and would happily accept anyone willing to help me test the tanks. I am also accepting anyones help in modeling, New ideas, or even just Balancing. All suggestions for parts would be happily accepted. Benjamin Kermen (My cocreator), Linuxgurugamer (Helping us with the .dll) and I are working together on this mod. It is my first so i have no clue what i'm doing, and am happy for all of the help they're providing
