  1. Well, once again my install of KSP corrupted... The physics are whacked again and all craft pull to the right for no reason. A fresh install solved the problem (again) and it continues to work fine after putting my mods back (again). But now I've gotta redo all my game bindings and various settings. I have multiple installs of the game and was wondering which file(s) I might be able to copy across to the new install to bring back all of my graphics, game, joystick, and key binding settings? Anyone know which file(s) I would need to copy across?
  2. This mod is obsolete. Replaced by OPT_Reconfig A single config mod. Converts select OPT parts for use with USI Life Support. Requested by a handful but I'm sure will be welcome by dozens. It's not being offered as a patch to be included in the OPT downloads as USI LS may change drastically, rendering this (as a bundled patch) quickly outdated. Download it from: GitHub sandbox SpaceDock Includes MiniAVC so everyone can be aware of updates. Comments and suggestions welcome. Does this need a license? If so, CC-BY-NC-SA. Feature list:
  3. So, today i downloaded the 3.2x rescale mod, and I'm loving it for the rockets parts and imho is a nice middle ground between RO and stock, and is doable with stock parts (and for bigger rockets i have spacey/spacey expanded). However i would love to do also some SSTO, but here lies the problem: orbital speed at 3.2x rescale is around 4.1 kms/s ( from the 2.25 of stock) so i would love to rescale also the rapier engine so they can bring me around mach 8 at 25-30kms in air-breathing and then from there on switching to the closed cycle. I already know how to change the performance of rocket engine, but i can't wrap around jet engine parts, and what means what, especially in this parts PROPELLANT { name = IntakeAir ignoreForIsp = True ratio = 6 } atmosphereCurve { key = 0 3200 0 0 } // Jet params atmChangeFlow = True useVelCurve = True useAtmCurve = True // no mach limit velCurve { key = 0 1 0 0.08333334 key = 0.2 0.98 0.42074 0.42074 key = 0.7 1.8 2.290406 2.290406 key = 1.4 4.00 3.887193 3.887193 key = 3.75 8.5 0 0 key = 4.5 7.3 -2.831749 -2.831749 key = 5.5 3 -5.260566 -5.260566 key = 6 0 -0.02420209 0 } atmCurve { // higher thrust at altitude than even TRJ key = 0 0 0 0 key = 0.018 0.09 7.914787 7.914787 key = 0.08 0.3 1.051923 1.051923 key = 0.35 0.5 0.3927226 0.3927226 key = 1 1 1.055097 0 I know that the 1st number of the velcurve is the mach number, but everything else? I have tried with lowering the intake air ratio to 0.6 and almost doubled the 1st number of the velcurve, but even on levelled flight at 20 kms ( high atmosphere line is at 21 kms in 3.2 rescale) the engine get starved for air with a shock-nosecone worth of air intake per engine. Can someone help me?
  4. I'd like to be able to create solid motor configs that have 100% thrust all the time in order to reduce gravity drag for orbital launch vehicles. However, I don't know how the thrust curves in the engine configs are structured. For instance, the AJ-260 FL: thrustCurve { key = 1 0.554323725 -12 -12 key = 0.99425197 0.692904656 -4 -4 key = 0.851189892 0.859201774 -0.952083496 -0.952083496 key = 0.681175941 0.985310421 -0.531426454 -0.531426454 key = 0.63542801 1 0 0 key = 0.498184216 0.985310421 0.255306394 0.255306394 key = 0.323060905 0.914634146 0.285245267 0.285245267 key = 0.157006708 0.88691796 0.31677097 0.31677097 key = 0.03821409 0.831485588 3 3 key = 0.023086798 0.44345898 39.42093859 39.42093859 key = 0.00322197 0.138580931 7 7 key = 0.0001 0.0005 0 7 } wat. I think the first two columns are referring to the propellant quantity remaining and thrust, respectively, but what are the latter two columns? I really don't want to do this, but... @NathanKell? @Phineas Freak? @JadeOfMaar? @Mecripp? Can you help?
  5. Sorry to be bombarding this forum with questions, but I've got another one. This one is pretty straightforward, but I can't for the life of me figure it out. How do you patch an MM value with an exponent? e.g. If I want to multiply a value, I write: @value *= (a number) But how do I do that for an exponential value? Basically, I'm still trying to write a config that scales all parts up by a factor of 2. So, rescaleFactor = 2, but that means values like mass, volume and resource amounts need to be scaled up by a factor of 3. I'm not sure how to tell Module Manager to do this. Would it work to write something like: @value = #value*#value*#value I really am very new to this!
  6. I want to create custom configs for solid rocket motors to simulate fictional and alternate historical rockets, yet I can't locate anything that gives the propellant quantity in either mass or volume. Is it in a different file or what? Here's an example config file for the Castor 1 in case you want to take a look: // ================================================== // Castor 1 solid rocket motor global engine configuration. // Throttle Range: N/A // Burn Time: 28 s // O/F Ratio: 2.12 // Sources: // Thrust Misalignments of Fixed Solid Rocket Motors: http://rsandt.com/media/Thrust%20Misalignments%20of%20Fixed-Nozzle%20Solid%20Rocket%20Motors.pdf // The Satellite Encyclopedia - Castor Series: https://www.tbs-satellite.com/tse/online/lanc_castor.html // Used by: // Squad // ================================================== @PART[*]:HAS[#engineType[Castor-1]]:FOR[RealismOverhaulEngines] { %category = Engine %title = Castor 1 %manufacturer = Thiokol %description = The Castor 1 was first used for a successful suborbital launch of a Scout X-1 rocket on September 2, 1960.

  7. I made my model and I tested it in game. To save space I want to use a texture that already is in the game and don't pack it in the mod. Maybe the textures used by another parts or may be used by the buildings. Can I do that? how?

  9. KSP Log: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1kgeoUZEDcq8SAABtZr_iNMVk2s4BtLnr Output Log:https://drive.google.com/open?id=1fsQl65CaPBrpV1DZvpwzgy_DQZpeQWpk
  10. Hi, Back in KSP 1.05, I did a cut n' paste job of the RAPIER engine config file. By splicing in stuff from the Juno and the NERV, I was able to make a nuclear turbojet with two operating modes : Mass 4T (one tonne heavier than the base NERV to allow for the turbomachinery). Includes built in RTG, 5 EC/Sec whether engine on or off Mode 1 (Air breathing) Used the Juno atmosphere and velocity curves, max thrust 80kn instead of 20kn. Acting as a nuclear turbojet, this mode requires no fuel, only intake atmosphere and can work in places like Duna and Eve where there is no oxygen. Mode 2 (Nuclear Thermal) Acting as the NERV, with the exception that Vacuum ISP is down to 776 but Sea Level ISP up to 660. I'm assuming that rather than a pure vacuum nozzle such an engine would use some kind of full range nozzle like the aerospike (or real world shuttle engine/proposed SABRE engine). I'm thinking of doing the above again, but is there a way to make an engine with more than two modes, by only editing the engine config file itself? The reason is, it seems plausible, technologically, to give the above engine a couple more operating modes - Mode 1.5 (Air Breathing - Afterburning) Like the base Air Breathing mode , this runs off intake atmosphere and uses jet engine Atmosphere and Velocity curves. They should probably be a similar shape to the Juno's. However, by injecting liquid fuel into the tail pipe, 50% more thrust is produced. ISP would probably be similar to the Panther in wet mode. This mode would require that the the atmosphere contains oxygen to work. The rationale is that in straight turbojet mode, power is limited by how much air the turbomachinery can handle, and how much heat the reactor can put into that air stream before temperatures get too high for the reactor or the first stage turbine. By burning fuel after the turbine, the temperature limits of the reactor and turbine can be ignored and more thrust produced with the same volume of air. Mode 2.5 (Nuclear Thermal - Afterburning) Operating in Nuclear thermal mode, max power is limited by reactor thermal output and the propellant can't be heated any higher than the reactor's max safe operating temperature. By injecting oxidizer into the liquid fuel that has been heated in the reactor, combustion occurs producing extra thrust at the cost of ISP.
  11. I am using KSP 1.3 with the RemoteTech 1.3 support, I have added it with CKAN as I have done with most of the mods seeing as I am using 100+ so it easier to keep track of them. I am seeking to add support for the HG-5B antenna to Remote Tech, which it seems to be lacking said support as shown in the photo below. it is the same as it says in its description as the HG-5 Antenna, but it just lacks the unfolding animation. I am trying to make a sleek Satellite and I would like to add the stats for the Hg-5 to it <image below> This should be as simple and copying and pasting the configs for the HG-5 and putting it into the slot for the HG-5B but I do not know which Config to look in or which antenna it would be since they sometimes have different names as apposed to the models and titles in game. Any help is apprenticed thank you. Necro

    Firespitter CFG

    Need some help, comrades! But first, sorry for my ugly english I making aircraft and my fuel tanks contains 6 units of L. fuel (30 kg) Wanna use this 6 units for 45 minutes flying at 100% thr. I copy-pasted this module from Firespitter engine and changed a bit. MODULE { name = FSengine thrustTransformName = thrustTransform maxThrust = 0.55 powerProduction = 40 engineBrake = 15 powerDrain = 10 velocityLimit = 0,1; 20,0.95; 25,0 fuelConsumption = 0,0.00001;1,0.002 atmosphericThrust = 0,0;0.9,1;1,1 resources = LiquidFuel,0.0025;IntakeAir,0.375 } But now fuel wasting too fast - enough only for 3-4 minutes. How can i fix it? What values i should use?
  13. I've made plenty of stable and meta-stable rockets with stock fuel flow in my time, but while attempting a fully reusable career play-through I decided that this particular mechanic had to go. I'm aware of the workarounds using fuel pumps, tank locking, and even the TankLock mod being maintained by the illustrious linuxgurugamer: However, what I would really like is for rocket engines to just behave like jet engines, having the "resourceFlowMode = STAGE_STACK_FLOW_BALANCE" property which causes fuel to drain evenly from all of the tanks in the current stage. To that end I made a Module Manager patch with the following text: This should change the resource flow mode to the desired mode in all engines which use ModuleEngines or ModuleEnginesFX (every rocket and jet engine I've inspected the .cfg of), but it had no effect for me. I've only ever seen resourceFlowMode defined for jet engines (ModuleEnginesFX), and it's always defined as "STAGE_STACK_FLOW_BALANCE". Is this node simply not implemented for ModuleEngines, or have I made a silly mistake in my Module Manager syntax? Thank you.
  14. 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!
  15. I'm trying to be clever with asset use (trying to be clever is how most issues start). I have a set of parts that all use the same mesh, and mostly the same texture, so I'm trying to use all the same model, except for different versions, apply a different transparent texture as a label. This should be stock behaviour when using the MODEL{model=, texture=} mesh references. And for the life of me, I cannot spot why it's not working for me. Example part snippet; PART { name = USAFOrionMag012kt920kN module = OrionMagazine author = WinchellChung MODEL { model = USAFOrionTD/Parts/Orion/Magazines/USAFStackable/Magazine scale = 1.0,1.0,1.0 texture = baselabel, USAFOrionTD/Parts/Orion/Magazines/Labels/r1ktlabels } The intention being that I change the texture = line to point at a new label for each new edition of the part. So far I'm just messing with two of them.

I've moved the replacement textures to a different folder, converted their names to all lower-case, starting with a letter, tried square textures (it started as 512x128), tried dds vs tga vs png. If the place-holder texture is dds, game loads, no errors in the output_log. But the part just has a blank texture where the replacement should be; If the placeholder isn't dds, then I get errors about null references; PartLoader: Compiling Part 'USAFOrionTD/Parts/Orion/Magazines/USAFStackable/part/USAFOrionMag012kt920kN' (Filename: C:/buildslave/unity/build/artifacts/generated/common/runtime/UnityEngineDebugBindings.gen.cpp Line: 42) PartLoader: Encountered exception during compilation.

If I skip the texture = (or comment it out) then the part loads with the placeholder texture. If I apply one of the label textures in unity and compile the mu that way, it also loads fine. Or just substitute the placeholder with one of the actual textures, it also loads fine. So, what I know is it's definitely reading the texture = line, and doing something with the named texture. That bit is working. It just never seems to find the replacement texture. Which suggests there's something wrong in the paths. But I've checked that so many times I can't see there being any typos or what have you there. I'm at the "try stupid things" stage. One thing I do like to do for sticky issues, is write a big long post about the issue so I have to get it clear in my head, on the hope that the process of explaining it, solves the issue. And so far that hasn't helped, except I ran a few extra tests to get the post more complete, but with no greater success than my other attempts. So, gonna step away from the 'puter for a bit. Clean my head with a wee bit of dilute WWII German rocket fuel, and come back to this later.

    Descriptive Descriptions

    For my contract pack Parts Unlimited (Soon to be renamed ZYX PartsULTD, but that's another story) I require better descriptions for parts. "A vaguely wing shaped board" is great and all when you can see the part, but trying to decide which wing to unlock when you don't have a picture available can make it quite a chore, especially when the wings you have to choose from are named "Wing Connector Type A" and "Wing Connector Type B". Actually, I take that back. It's NEVER fine for that to happen So I took it upon myself, and for myself, to go through and describe all the parts one by one, to give them more descriptive descriptions. For example, the 3 wings that are "wing shaped boards" will now be described as: Type A: A stubby 4x2 wing segment, 4 meters in chord and 2 in span. Type B: A long 2x4 wing segment, 2 meters in chord and 4 in span. Type C: A 2x2 wing segment. Placing 2 of these is like using one Type-A or Type-B wing segment. Similarly, other wing segments are also more descriptively described. I also made similar changes to nose cones, intakes, elevons and the like, and then realized that wow, this was a lot of work. No wonder nobody at Squad has bothered to undertake it yet. So here is the config as it stands. It's got (what I am fairly sure is) a full list of parts but those I've not described are blank. I post it here for 2 reasons: It's useful as it is, even though it's not that complete. For me wings were the absolute worst offender and this basically fixes that. Maybe someone wants to help, and I'd love it if they did. Either making my descriptions better or adding their own. I don't know if this is the best way to present the file, but as it's a single file I'm just putting the config up on GitHub and letting people download it. I'd be interested in opinions on splitting the file into multiple configs vs one big one, mod support (I likely won't do it but I'm willing to support it if it doesn't get too hairy), and of course any pull requests with extra descriptions (after I vet them of course) are welcome. Download here: https://github.com/5thHorseman/DescriptiveDescriptions/blob/master/DescriptiveDescriptions.cfg Or visit the github page here: https://github.com/5thHorseman/DescriptiveDescriptions
  17. So I recently got a new computer. I have download ksp and mods for it already, but when making a C-130, the wing was too small. I wanted to make it tweakscalable but, I did not have the like config file program. Does anyone know one that i could download?
  18. I've been trying to set myself up with a game that uses Outer Planets Mod and rescales bodies 3.2x, and orbits 6.4x (as I remember reading people had good experiences with that setup, ages ago). I actually started on a config (here, for reference, note that OPM already does its own rescaling of antenna power, and it is very basic), but was wondering if anyone has something more developed than this. I do already find getting to Kerbin orbit a nice sweet spot between challenging and annoying, but I have a nagging suspicion I'd end up tweaking the config in all directions later on.
  19. Hey there! Im working on a reuseable rocket, by using smme's as the 1st stage engines. Unfortunately they have only 1 ignition available. So I tried to change the amount of ingitions in the engine config (cfg.) but I couldnt find the word ignition in it. This is how it looks like: //New engine/cluster plugin patch @PART[SSTU-SC-ENG-RS-25]:NEEDS[SSTU]:FOR[RealismOverhaul] { %RSSROConfig = True %engineType = SSME @mass = 3.526681 @crashTolerance = 12 %breakingForce = 250 %breakingTorque = 250 %maxTemp = 3588.15 @MODULE[ModuleEngines*] { %minThrust = 1358.5 %maxThrust = 2278.824 %heatProduction = 100 @PROPELLANT[LiquidFuel] { @name = LqdHydrogen @ratio = 0.728 } @PROPELLANT[Oxidizer] { @name = LqdOxygen @ratio = 0.272 } @atmosphereCurve { @key,0 = 0 453 @key,1 = 1 363 } } } +PART[SSTU-SC-ENG-RS-25]:NEEDS[SSTU]:FOR[RealismOverhaul] { @name = SSTU-SC-ENG-RS-25x5 @MODULE[SSTUModularEngineCluster] { @currentEngineLayoutName = Five-X !LAYOUT,*:HAS[~name[Five-X]]{} @LAYOUT[Five-X] { !MOUNT,*:HAS[~name[Mount-SLS]]{} @MOUNT[Mount-SLS] { %size = 8.4 %canAdjustSize = false } } } }
  20. Crewed modules have an INTERNAL section like the following: INTERNAL { name = landerCabinInternals } Is it possible to offset the entire internal space? Failing that, can anyone direct me to the stock CFG for landerCabinInternals so that I can manually create an offset version? I'm welding a pod with other parts and need to correct the location where the internal cabin "part" gets attached to.
  21. Firstly let me state that I am a complete modding noob and that I am just starting to dip my toe into the world of part modding with KSP via editing the config files. So far I have successfully re-textured/modified the small "Not-Rockomax Mocronode" into a working probe core/micro satellite and wanted to try something else. My plan is to try and turn one of the ore drills into a surface sample collector which can be placed onto an unmanned probe. I know, it's disgusting that I want to do this rather than send a Kerbal and pick up the samples in person but I plan on making the transmission penalty so high that the sample will have to be returned to Kerbin anyway in order to gain any useful science from them. The way I look at it it's just going to be using an unmanned probe rather than risking the life of a Kerbal to get the sample and you can already use probes to mine for ore which basically is a surface sample anyway so this seems like a logical progression of that mechanic. Anyway, that's enough of the starter now on to the main course... I can resize/re-texture the drill fine and can get it to display the "Take Surface Sample" message and run the experiment OK but I can't figure out how the animation of the part works. Ideally I would like to use the stock animation to deploy, drill for the sample and then stow the drill again when the experiment is run but I don't know if this is possible? Could someone please point me in the right direction for a tutorial on how the animation commands of the config work? I can't find much information on the "ModuleAnimationGroup" "deployAnimationName" and "activeAnimationName" commands which I am assuming are what I need to use? I should also point out that I intend to sue these parts purely in my own personal game and will not distribute other peoples code, I just want to learn and reverse engineering existing parts seems to be the logical starting point. Thank you in advance for any help offered.

    modded docking node broke

    so i made a duplicate of the stock docking node and changed the config so that it locks to an orientation and the docking port worked perfectly. but as soon as i replaced it with the model i made the "decouple" button has disappeared from the GUI but the disable cross feed and control from here remain. nothing has changed except the model and i can find no explanation for it stopping working. has anyone experienced this issue or can offer a possible explanation?
  23. I am looking for someone to make a custom config for the Filter Extensions mod, with new categories and subcategories (I heard that you can make subcategories with Filter Extensions; could someone explain this further to me?) If someone could help, that would be great, as I don't have the knowledge to make my own configs. Part Mods: Categories: I apologize for me having to ask someone to do this, and for the very large mod list (I went a little crazy after hearing that 64 bit would allow many more mods), but I don't have any modding or config-ing experience (or the patience and time to write dozens of lines of text ). Thanks!
  24. Specifically, I'm talking about the "allowShroudToggle" parameter. Currently, I have an engine with two fairings, one should be toggle-able, the other should be non-toggle-able. MODULE { name = ModuleJettison jettisonName = Knight_Engine_A_Fairing bottomNodeName = bottom isFairing = True jettisonedObjectMass = 0.1 jettisonForce = 5 jettisonDirection = 0 0 1 } MODULE { name = ModuleJettison jettisonName = Knight_Engine_A_Support bottomNodeName = bottom isFairing = False jettisonedObjectMass = 0.1 jettisonForce = 5 jettisonDirection = 0 0 1 allowShroudToggle = False } The second fairing "Knight_Engine_A_Support" (Which is the small supporting arms in the below screenshot) has the "allowShroudToggle" value set to false. Unfortunately, this doesn't work in game, as in the VAB - both shrouds can be toggled. Unfortunate visual side-effect, if both are toggled, the part appears to be floating!
  25. There was a pretty popular post on this forum with a download for a settings.cfg file that made ksp run pretty fast on my computer. now that the forum changed, I can't find it anymore. Can anyone tell me where to find it or what settings to change? Thanks!
