  1. Please note there is a bug in 1.4.2 thats adding Contract Spam. This is not connected to Mission Controller or any other mod. It happens it Vanilla too. Please don't report these to me because your sending me on a wild goose chase I can't fix, nor have time for.. Thanks. Thread its been reported in. Mission Controller 2.0 is a far cry from the old Mission Controller. MCE no longer handles Economy. KSP does that now. MCE is a Career Game Mod. It add In-Game Contract Editing and Pre-Made Contracts and Historical contracts that show up in your mission control Building like all other types of contracts. You can control all aspects of the mod with its integrated settings menu. Just go to the advanced options in the KSP Settings Tab and you should see Mission Controller listed. Have fun. For Support: They moved the Output_Log.txt file to a new location in 1.4. Its now located in. C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\LocalLow\Squad\Kerbal Space Program. I need this file to check what is causing issues. Please upload but don't paste contents into the forum is much to large of a file. New With 2.0! Four different types of contracts you can build yourself inside the game while Playing Kerbal Space Program Supports the Making History Expansion Pack! Custom Contracts work on the premise that your not waiting for a contract from a company to show up in Mission Control, your yourself are writing a contract and a Company will eventually accept and fund your expedition for you! That is the whole point of Custom Contracts, it's not free money but Funding for the expedition Type of your choice! Lets Go! Made for your RemoteTech Needs. Just select the Orbital Periods you launch and turn on the contract and they will show up in your Mission control Center. Have a Life Support Mod? Or other type of resource mod? Use this contract to make custom missions to supply your stations with the supplies they need. Mission controller can support any supply added by any mod. If its not part of mission controller now, you can add it yourself by editing the Mission Controller Config file. Need to have a crew on the station or base. Mission Controllers Custom Crew Expedition allows you to set up crew rotations to your bases and space stations! NEW You can now add civilians to this contract. Bring civilians to your stations and bases and make extra money!! Decide where you want to go any planet any moon.. Landing or Orbit. And someone just might fund your expedition for you. NEW You can now add civilians to this contract type, bring civilians to orbits of other planets or have them land with you. Start a New touring business around the Kerbol System! Oh ya you make extra funds for this service.. Have fun! These new contract types also bring many flavors of objectives. One of the main objectives is to deliver a single satellite to either Polar Orbit Or more common KeoStationary orbit. Core Adjustments in VAB This is where the new parts come in. One of the objective of these contracts is to add a Certain Satellite core to your vessel. The satellite cores are split into the 4 types above. You also need to set up a Module type that the Customer wants installed into the core. You can adjust these inside the VAB with Tweakables via right clicking on the already placed part. You also need to set a Frequency that the contract requires. You can do this the same way with a tweakable while inside the VAB and right clicking the part. Start Data Linkup This is an objective of these types of contracts. Once you get the vessel into the Objective orbit and you have the correct Module installed and Frequency you can right click on the part while in flight and complete this object by pressing the "Start Data Linkup" Keep A Line Of Sight Of Ground Station This is an objective that works very similar to the Default KSP Keostationary contract the only difference is that the ground station is connected via Frequency you set previously while building your satellite. this is important only a satellite with the right frequency can establish a link with the target ground station and finish this objective. Get to KeoStationary Orbit This is an easy objective you must get to the designated APA and PEA orbital heights the contract requires. For most contracts this is a keostationary orbit. Some Satellite types do have different types of orbits though so pay attention. Attention You can only set the frequency and module type while in the VAB. You cannot change these while in flight. If you get the wrong settings you will have to launch a new vessel. Also be aware that a Satellite core can only do 1 Data Link download. They cannot be reused for other missions. So make sure the settings are correct. The big daddy of satellite contracts. The network contract requires you to launch 6 Satellites and build a network around kerbin. All 6 satellites work the same way as the above Single Contract Missions. They all require Satellite cores (all the same) Satellite Modules (again all the same) and finally Frequencies. Every satellite has a different frequency set to a different Ground Station. You must set each satellite to the correct frequency while in the VAB. You can also launch Multiple satellites at the same time. But make sure your not setting the Frequencies while in Symmetry mode! Do not place Satellite cores down in Symmetry mode either or every time you change a frequency the others will change also! Ground Stations There are 6 ground stations added by mission controller. They split kerbin up into 4 quadrants on the equator and 2 quadrants on the poles. While a contract is active or available these GroundStations will show up in the map view via KSP FinePrint Icons. All ground stations are located in the same place and are named. While in flight you can see ground stations that are assigned to your contract in flightMode. The science Contracts offered by Mission Controller consist of: onization Scan of Orbit You must load you vessel with the Mission Controller Part Ionization Chamber and launch a vessel to the Target Celestial body the contract requires. When you arrive in orbit you can conduct the Ionization Scan to complete the contract and get some Science! The scanner takes a little while to conduct its studies so just wait for the timer to run down and the contract will complete. Land And Conduct Mass Spectrometry Analysis You must build an Unmanned lander and place the mission controller Part Mass Spectrometry Tube and launch your vessel to the target celestial body and land. Once landed you can conduct a Mass Spectrometry Scan to finish the mission. the scanner takes a little while to conduct it's studies so just wait for the timer to run down and the contract will complete. One of the last parts that Mission Controller adds is what is called the Repair Panel. This panel is a required part for most Satellite type missions. Once enough satellites are in space satellites have a random chance of breaking. If this is the case a repair contract will pop up giving you an option to launch to the satellite and conduct repairs. All you need for these missions is an Engineer kerbal. Once you reach the satellite EVA your Engineer and head to the Repair panel that is attached to your Satellite or Station. Open it up and select the option to Test the system. After this is complete conduct repairs to finish the contract. Historic Contracts. (Can Be Turned Off) Mission Controller has a wide range of Historical missions. If these types of missions are not what you want to do you can shut these off in the settings menu available from the Space Center overview screen. Just click the MCE Icon to open up the settings tab. Vostok 1 Vostok 2 Voskhod 2 Tiros 1 Tiros 7 Tiros NOAA - N Mariner 2 Mariner 4 Mariner 10 Voyager 1 Apollo Missions + Extended Duna Missions Luna 2 Luna 16 Agena Target Vehicle Agena Docking Launch Of SkyLab Expedition 1 To SkyLab Expedition 2 To SkyLab Expedition 3 To SkyLab Contract Types Single Delivery Satellite Contracts Using MCE Ground Stations. 6 Satellite Network Contract Using MCE Ground Stations.

New Gui Using the new Untity Assets and Kerbal Space Program PopupGui 2. All settings are now located in KSP settings menu. (Intergrated) 3. New Custom Contract Land and orbit. (This is first step towards a new type of custom contract) 4. Repair Contracts no longer use MCE random. You should get them more often now using KSP Contract weight system. 5. Started the first stage of Localization. 6. MCE Revert is back. Use this revert for a non cheaty version that now cost you a % of your ship cost to use. Can be turned off/On in settings. 7. Other minor fixes to other Contracts. I have also started converting MCE Contract Paramenters and contracts to using any new Default Paramenters that Mirror my old versions. Mission Controller 1.4.1.0 Update. 1. Fixed Research Core Science Not working. 2. Fixed Weather Core Science Not working. Mission Controller 1.4.0.3 Update. 1. updated for KSP 1.2. 2. Changed out a good portion of the Satellite contracts to use the default KSP Orbit Goal, instead of the old MC2 AP and PE goals. Now you get KSP orbit in game Representation of orbits, just like the default Satellite contracts. 3. The Communication Core has a 2nd role as Direct Communications link. Equal to the Communotron-16. 4. The navigation Core has a 2nd role as a Relay Communications Link. Equal to the HG-5 Relay System. 5.

The Repair Panel is still located in the Utility Tab. 8. The weather Core can now do science, and give you science points. Version 1.3.7 For KSP 1.12 1.Recompiled for KSP 1.12 with AVC Updated. 2.Fixed an Apollo-Duna fail load on TargetBody4. 3.Fixed KEOSync Orbits for Satellite network contract. Should have the right values now. 4.Fixed Rover Waypoint Drive Contract showing up multiple times in contract list. version 1.3.6 For KSP 1.11 1. Fixed issue with some more errors in Contract Save and Load configs. 2. Fixed issue with lower res games having issues with GUI Screens. (hopefully). [b]Version 1.3.4 (KSP 1.1 Update)[/b] 1.Fixed the issues with APA and PEA in most contracts I hope. 2.Only the Satellite Network Contracts have a set value for KEOSync orbits now.. All other contracts can have random values to help spice it up a little. 3.Messed a little with the randomness of Repair Contracts. 4.Worded some of the missions a little different. 5.MCE should work with RS and other Solar System modification mods that change the size of kerbin and other bodies. 6.Adjusted some prices to make Contract Payouts a little less 7. Increased Repair Contracts again. 8. Fixed a few mission Description problems 9. fixed a lot of possible NRE issues, especially at part load and MCE modules. 11. .fixed an issue with Repair contracts and a possible NRE when the Check for Repair Part doesn't pass. 12. .fixed issues Up to and including all Apollo Historic missions I could find. I still have more work to do on finding any issues with the later historic missions. 13. .Searched for in code errors that have been around and trying to squash them. These don't cause many problems in game but might help reduce More NRE issues. 14. Added new contract Land Rover, and Drive Rover. This is a WIP project and might not work totally correctly yet. But the mission has two parts, Land your rover on (Duna is only planet this release) specific waypoint. The waypoint is represented in the Map view during the game. You do have a small margin or error for the LZ. But you have to be pretty close when landing the rover. The next part is a 2nd contract that adds a new waypoint for you to drive your rover to. This one is pretty self explanatory. Again this contract is a WIP. I have not had much time to test it out and any possible issues. I will continue to work on it as I get time though. 15. Added Mini AVC to Mission Controller to help control possible version conflicts. [B]version 1.26[/B] Fixed issue where Repair Contracts not showing. Had to get rid of the ability to choose your own Chance percentage in config file. This is a quick fix to get them to show up again until I can look into changing this later. [B]Version 1.25[/B] 1. Fixed the Great potatoes Bug mystery. Satellite contracts had a strange requirement for a Potato? This was not an intentional feature. What happened was that I have always used a default mission objective from default KSP contracts. That is the satellite has Power and is new.. This was from the fineprint contracts that ship with the game now. When 1.05 for KSP came out the contract. Parameters for fine print were MOVED to a new location and some renamed. I found what I though was the new name for Satellite has power and is new.. But I guess it is not the case. Sorry for lack of checking on that one, that part is my fault. 2. I raised the default error of margin for APA and PEA from 1000 to 5000. 3. Shipped the up-to-date config file with new version. The older version had an older config file.. Was not a big deal the config file rewrites itself if its not correct, but still rather have the right one for you can edit the config file before starting for the first time. [B]Version 1.24[/B] 1.05 compatible changed a few things that made MC2 not work right in 1.05 of KSP. All should be good now. [B]Version 1.22[/B] 1.Fixed the Issue with Low and High Frequencies not being able to be selected. 2.Added a Margin Of Error for Low and High APA values in config file. 3.Added Payment Modifier in the Config File for contracts. 4.Satellite Contracts should no longer have random parts for Mission Controller. [B]Version 1.2 Released[/B] 1. Completely redid satellite contracts. Satellite contracts now require new parts! They are also very different and use Frequencies to communicate with ground stations to complete contracts. Most missions require KeoStation Orbit and to keep target ground stations in line of sight at all times. 2. Single delivery Contract Missions. 3. Network Contracts: Construct a 6 satellite network above kerbin. This is the big daddy contract of MCE. Pays well, but takes time and knowledge to complete. 4. Lots of code clean up no more Kerbal Insurance. (out of scope for this mod now) 5. Brand new Parts for satellite contracts. Communication Core, Navigation Core, Weather Core, and Research Core. Check the forum page for info on new contracts and how to complete them. In game explanation is also pretty thorough if you don't like to read. LOL. [B]Version 1.21 Released[/B] 1. Fixed the duplication bug of Historical Contracts. Only 1 should show up now in your contract list. [B]Version 1.12.3 [/B] 1. All part textures converted to DDS format. 2. Fixed Apollo-Duna Orbital Mission Transmit Science from ground. Suppose to be transmit science from Space. 3. Fixed payout for Apollo-Duna Orbital Mission. Was way to much. 4. Fixed Apollo-Duna payout for Build Station. Was way to much. 5. Other small fixes forgot about. With this update make sure to delete your Old MissionControllerEC folder completely. Or you will get duplicate part textures! DDS and PNG. Bad idea. [B]Version 1.12.2[/B] 1. Removed the need for any future RSS config files. Mission Controller 2 will figure out the Orbits of all bodies on its own.. (I hope) 2. Removed Civilian Contracts. 3. Fixed Repair Contracts. The contracts no longer have SpareParts as requirement. (forgot to remove last time) 4. Fixed Repair Contracts. The descriptions for the contracts now should read new method for Repairs. 5. Did a small pass on some of the contract payouts. This might take awhile as I get a look at what contracts are paying and bring more changes. 6. Removed some other legacy code no longer used. 7. Added Supplies From USI Life support to the Custom Resupply Contract. ChangLog 1.12.1 1. KSP 1.0 Version compatible. 2. No more hire Cost (1.0 has it) 3. Civilian Contracts Turned off (possibly removed next version since 1.0 has civ contracts) 4. No more in editor Parts reader (1.0 has some sort of System) 5. No more dependencies. (you only need mission controller now to run MC). 6. Another Revamp of Repair Missions. No longer require SpareParts or any type of resource. All you need now is a Kerbal Engineer to fix satellites. Or stations. 7. Added Apollo 17 (Minmus) 8. Added new expanded Apollo Missions with 9 new single contracts covering the Set up and landing on Duna. 9. Rewrote the Orbit Research and Landing Research Contracts to be more NASA Like. 10-. The parts have had a overhall pass and renamed. They reflect Real World Early Tech found on early Probes. Orbital Research Is now Ionization Chamber and LanderResearch is Mass Spectrometry Tube. (will be save friendly transfer) 11. Most other contracts that remain have been been made more Realistic in explanations.. Like historical missions. [B]Version 1.11.0 Mission Controller For .90.[/B] Please delete your whole MissionControllerEC folder before installing this update. 1. Added 2 new Historic Contracts Covering the United States TIROS Program (Television Infrared Observation Satellite) (3 Contracts) And the United States Mariner Program. Mariner 2 (Eve) Mariner 4 (Duna) Mariner 10 (Eve and Moho) and Renamed Mariner 11 and 12 (Voyager 1 To Jool System). 2. Added the ability to Add your own resources to the Station supply Contracts. These Resources can be changed or added in the config file. What it looks like. [CODE] SupplyResourceList { Item = LiquidFuel Item = Oxidizer Item = MonoPropellant Item = XenonGas Item = Food Item = Water Item = Oxygen Item = Kibbal } You can either change the Item or Add a whole new one like this. SupplyResourceList { Item = LiquidFuel Item = Oxidizer Item = MonoPropellant Item = XenonGas Item = Food Item = Water Item = Oxygen Item = Kibbal Item = NewStuffAdded (has to match the resource name in the resource.cfg files of mod, or game) }
  2. Still working fine for 1.3 Initial release of the revamped, scaled down, Additional Progression Contracts mod. This is a replacement for my old "Advanced Progression Contracts" mod, since most of the contracts in it were merged into the base game by Squad. DOWNLOAD Requires Contract Configurator 1.15 or higher. Contracts included on launch: Send the first probe to another planet. Send the first manned flyby of another planet (and return). Send the first manned landing on another planet (and return). Land a rover on the Mun. Land a rover on Minmus. Land a rover on another planet. Perform an EVA in Solar orbit. Future plans: More contracts itemized for planet moons. Jool-system specific contracts (Jool 5 challenge, etc). Repeatable "send a probe to X planet" generic contracts - the ones in stock are often a bit too specific, and don't usually help career-mode missions get funding. Unmanned probe sample-return missions (to Mun, planets, etc) More stuff to do with rovers - distance records, etc (as soon as I get the contract scripting logic for it to work correctly) In-atmosphere aircraft circumnavigation. (as soon as I get the contract scripting logic for it to work correctly) Ideas people suggest/request Released under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License
  3. Contract Pack: Historical Progression This contract pack is designed to take you through the history of the human space program. This entire contract pack was inspired by Whitecat106's Historic Missions contracts. He has created an incredible selection of close to 700 missions! For me, that is too much, and I wanted to go through the history of human spaceflight and progress how we have done in real life. I did not want to have to launch a mission that was almost the smae thing over and over again. This contract pack takes you from the first sounding rockets to New Horizons and into the future. You will be tasked with recreating some of the most ambitious missions like the Apollo Program, Voyager and the International Space Station. It is up to you to guide the Kerbals into the cosmos through a historical progression. Some of these contracts are very involved and require you to use gravity assists to accomplish the contract parameters. Others give you the option to complete certain goals in order to gain bonuses. For example, in your Space Shuttle contracts, you get bonus funds if you land your shuttle on the Runway back at KSC. One of the best examples of this is the MESSENGER contract. It requires you to enter a polar orbit of the first planet in the solar system. We will use the stock system with the Real Solar System planets as an example. MESSENGER Contract Parameters General Goal: Design an unmanned craft to Orbit Moho (Mercury) with a minimum Inclination of 70 degrees Design an unmanned craft with an antenna (also with 3 SCANsat scanners if you have the mod installed) Launch MESSENGER Enter Orbit of the Sun OPTIONAL BONUS: Flyby Kerbin (Earth) for a gravity assist OPTIONAL BONUS: Flyby Eve (Venus) for a gravity assist OPTIONAL BONUS: Flyby Eve (Venus) again for a gravity assist OPTIONAL BONUS: Flyby Moho (Mercury) for a gravity assist OPTIONAL BONUS: Flyby Moho (Mercury) again for a gravity assist OPTIONAL BONUS: Flyby Moho (Mercury) for the third time for a gravity assist Enter Orbit of Moho (Mercury) with a minimum Inclination of 70 degrees Transmit Science Data from Space around Moho (Mercury) If you have SCANsat installed, have 80% mapping of Low Quality, Biome and High Quality Most of the missions are not that difficult or that involved, but MESSENGER was launched in 2004 after more than 50 years of spaceflight and we knew some new tricks to help us achieve an orbit.

The contracts have support for Scanning missions if SCANsat is installed. Life Support Mods There are many to choose from, but I reccomend picking at least one of them. Some of these contracts are setting new duration records in space and there is no real challenge to them without having Life Support of some kind. OTHER MODS TO CONSIDER There are many part mods to consider that will give you the ability to construct realistic looking, or in some cases replicas of the spacecraft that are simulated in this contract pack.

  4. My First Space Station, and Misadventures Related Thereto PART 1 In which mistakes are made I was waiting for various maneuver nodes to come up on my first manned trip to Minmus, initiated almost at the same time as the consummation of my first unmanned trip to Minmus (my first mining-refining vessel, on the Mun, decided to have some mission creep). In the meantime, I decided to accept a bunch of contracts regarding putting a space station into orbit, which I had never done before intentionally. (There was an early-game derelict spacecraft—a crossfeed error made it run out of fuel unexpectedly and I had to rescue the pilot via EVA—but other than that I had never put any kerbal carriers into permanent orbit.) There was one for Kerbin (10 kerbal capacity, research station) and one for the Mun (5 kerbal capacity). Additionally, I already had a contract for docking two vessels on or around the Mun, but it turns out that a lander returning to an orbiting mothership doesn't qualify. (Perhaps it was that the vessels had to be launched separately.) I thought I could kill three birds with one stone if I launched a space station with a shiny newly unlocked Clampy Senior, and then launched a lander-miner-refiner Mk.II capable of pushing it to the Mun. I decided to give the station a dedicated lander (capable of potentially ferrying tourists to and from the Mun) and a couple of escape pods (partly for fun, and partly because of an "orbit Kerbin" contract that I didn't feel like carrying to the Mun). Soon I was launching Alpha Space Station into orbit. It clocks in at almost exactly 50 tons, counting 27 tons of fuel and monopropellant reserves, and seems to have more than enough battery to last through a night-side orbit while still researching. Moving and re-docking the lander proved conclusively that I am genuinely bad at complex RCS maneuvering. I can sort of handle translating in the cardinal directions, and pitch/roll/yaw aren't too different from doing it with reaction wheels, but any attempts to control any two impulses at once degenerate quickly into hopeless, hilarious failure. Nevertheless, I managed it. I noticed that I forgot to put any solar panels on the lander, so my tourists had better not dawdle on the surface before coming back up. 150 electricity should be enough for the command pod reaction wheel on a trip like that, right? Just gotta remember to turn off the SAS when I'm not using it, like after landing. Recovering the second stage brought the total launch cost down to 59k. Not great by some standards, I'm sure, but not too bad for something I hope will see lots of future use. Next up, launching the propulsion vehicle. It's a spiffed-up version of my previous mining vessel. Since the last one is still in the field with all its onboard science, I didn't have enough to unlock everything on my wish list (large ore tank), but this is still a big improvement, largely because of the 2.5m-1.25m quad adapter and better thermal dissipation. It also has its own research facility and houses a crew of 4 (using the 2-man can to fit a Clampy Senior on top). Four-way symmetry should help my RCS control a little compared to the Mk.I's three-way. I think I'll call it Prospecting Unit/Lifter/Lander. Kind of a mouthful, but it does a lot of stuff, I hope! The team slapped on a PPD-10 to add a few last-minute Mun tourists to the itinerary, and a small manned probe hopefully capable of making polar orbit, and then blasted off! No second stage lifter needed here—the package to be delivered can do its own work after the initial boost. If I need extra fuel to get to the Mun I can borrow from the station. Cost of lifter: 46k (69k less 23k recovered) for putting 70 tons of craft in orbit (less perhaps 5 tons of fuel I used from the nukes to get to the rendezvous). Without further ado, mission A.S.S.-P.U.L.L. was a go! About 115 tons put in orbit between station and miner/tugboat for a slightly smaller number of kilocredits. PART 2 In which Bob thinks he can pilot a ship, but is wrong. It didn't take too long for Mission Control to realize they had put a scientist in a ship with no probe. Well, I guess old Bob could use the practice. Also, I put the tourist who only signed up for Kerbin orbit into an escape pod with Valentina (so I could have at least one kerbonaut holding down the fort at home; I cleaned out the place for these launches) and pulled the trigger. Up until now there had been thirteen (13) kerbals aboard the A.S.S.-P.U.L.L. mission, which is by far the most I've had at once. To be fair, I've never combined two launches into a single mission before. Meanwhile, it turns out that the lander attached to my A.S.S. is throwing off the balance—the reaction wheels aren't able to compensate enough to keep the ship straight at full thrust. Perhaps if I emptied out the fuel? But I only have spare tankage for the liquid, not the oxidizer. My A.S.S. is still just too fat. I could nurse the thing along at half throttle, but it's already a long burn. In doing so, I might even briefly drop out of space mid-burn, not that it's dangerous to be at 69km or whatever, but to heck with that! I have tons of monopropellant and even if this isn't what RCS is meant for, it's sure good enough to do the job! And after repeating the same ridiculous scheme at the Mun capture burn, I'll be ready to land and rejuvenate all this stuff I've been burning. But first, what about Bob? He has the opposite problem: too much control. His unsteady hands are capable of doing a full rotation when only a modest adjustment is needed. After locking the engine gimbals and setting wheel authority to 50%, though, he's starting to feel like a real pilot. Now let's get some polar orbital contracts/science! Literally eleven minutes (game time) before entering the Mun's SOI, I get a contract offer to "return or transmit scientific data from space around the Mun". Well, I'm not going to say no to that! Speaking of our Mun burn, the fuel is running lower than I expected, but fortunately I lifted off with full ore tanks to refine more fuel with en route, which I've been converting to liquid fuel. And a little extra monopropellant, which I was shocked to find in danger of actually running out. But, after all, it was just for convenience, not a mission requirement, although I'm resolving to hang on to some for "real" usage. After a routine circularization burn, other than continued RCS abuse, I detached the miner-lander and proceeded to a landing that was completely ordinary, including my continued ability to pick a landing zone that is too steep for comfort but not quite steep enough to prevent landing. The miner comes back up to dock. I'm a bit worried that I STILL won't get credit for the docking because even though this includes hardware from two different launches it came to the Mun in one piece. Additionally, I left one piece that was originally part of the lander with the station when it detached. Will this count? Or is the contract's secret requirement that two vessels dock FOR THE FIRST TIME in the Mun's orbit? Nope, this doesn't count either. But I haven't given up all hope yet; I can still detach the PPD-10, land with the Mun tourists, and come back up to dock two vessels that don't have any pieces of each other in them yet. The miner/refiner refuels the station but the modest ore hold isn't enough to completely refill both the liquid in the station's LFO tanks and the prodigious amount of monopropellant that we burned. Oh, gee whiz, what a tragedy to have to land back on the Mun for some more. As it happens, when I finish refining my ore I'm very close to an equatorial Canyons biome passing underneath. Sounds good to me! I quickly detach and kill most of my orbital velocity, lining up my remaining path with the canyon. ... it turns out that canyon floors look really nice and smooth, and they are smooth, but not flat. Had to burn a lot of fuel changing landing zones twice to achieve a mere 15 degree tilt, which I think is my steepest yet with these disconcertingly tall landers. When I undocked, the name changes gave me hope that this time the contract will work. The station got its old launcher name back, and hilariously the lander got bequeathed the station icon and name. So yes, KSP says I have a space station landed on the Mun. OH COME ON The docking was an exercise in frustration; after the second bounce I went in with a perfect plan, only to have the docking ports stabilize without completing the docking. Why do you hate me? A short expenditure of RCS later (by the station, since it's lopsided and probably lighter anyway) and I'm finally docked, and yes, the contract finally completed. What replaced it? Well, turns out I need to get "scientific data from the surface of the Mun." Does it count scientific data I've already collected even if I'm no longer on the surface? Yes. And now, time to go home. It turns out I did not sufficiently think that part through. It was easy enough to carry over a dozen kerbals to the Mun with this space station, but bringing them back without bringing the space station back is trickier. In the end, the two scientists volunteered to man the station's lab, and the ship left while the engineer was admiring the view from the station's cupola. My Mk.II miner was a modest success, and maybe it's the sunk-cost fallacy but I don't quite feel like deorbiting the thing, so I slapped together a 10-kerbal SSTO ferry (8 returning from the Mun, 1 pilot, and 1 LKO rescue) and took off, after sending it back from the launch pad for a last second addition of a stored-science-retrieval kit. I had to research the Klaw for this vessel as tourists cannot EVA. That solution seemed easier than designing the ferry to include a Clampy Senior. This thing really jumped off the pad, so Valentina decided to try a much shallower ascent path than usual to minimize gravity losses; we hit 70km apoapsis just as the speed was threatening to fry the solar panels so she coasted up and circularized. As the Mun tourists returned to Kerbin, Mission Control didn't want the ship to go too deep into the atmosphere for fear of breaking the satellite dishes, and gentle airbraking was way too boring, so the NERV engines were put to good use again doing most of the work. The miner sidled up to the waiting Klaw ship and the tourists and data transferred over. KSC was drawing near, and there was a fair amount of fuel remaining, so a hasty deorbit put us reasonably close (by my lax standards). No sooner had we landed than new contracts came in asking us to use our brand new Klaw, to rescue kerbals and objects around the Mun, no less! Looks like the engines on my P.U.L.L.er will barely have time to cool off. END OF MISSION

Contracts Window + v8.2 Download from SpaceDock Download from CurseForge Alternate Download: GitHub Localization is supported and the following translations are included in the download package: Russian | Chinese | Polish | Spanish by @vladimir_v| by @QAQdong| by @Moskit| by @fitiales -------------------- Consider donating if you like what you see here. * Money will not go directly to development or upkeep of this addon -------------------- Source is available at GitHub A new contract monitoring window designed to give more information and be more flexible than the stock window. This window gives players a number of options for displaying contracts. Grouping and ordering of contracts can be modified and contracts can be placed into custom mission lists. All contract and parameter reward and penalty values are displayed, along with the amount due to any strategy modifiers. The contract reward modification section of this addon has been removed. Its functionality has been moved to a new, separate add-on that can be found here. The top bar has several buttons that are used to adjust contract ordering and display options. The top-left icon opens a new window with options for changing sort order based on several criteria. The next icon toggles between ascending and descending order for the selected sorting type. The eyeball icon on the right toggles between the active and hidden contract list. Each mission list has its own active and hidden contract lists. The top-right icon opens a new window displaying all of the existing contract missions. Selecting a mission will switch the primary display to those contracts. The primary mission is always at the top of the list and contains all contracts. The bottom bar has several buttons that control various window options. The version number is displayed on the left. Tooltips for most buttons can be toggled on and off with the next icon. The spinning arrows icon is used to reset the window and primary contract list. A confirmation box will open upon pushing this button. This should generally not be needed, but if there are errors in the contract window (no contracts displayed, no "MasterMission" contract list, the window is too small, etc...) this can be used. All window size, font size, and position options will be reset; the internal list of contracts will be updated with all active contracts and the "MasterMission" will be reset with this internal list. All other mission lists should be unaffected, these can be manually deleted if there are any other problems. The aA icon controls font size for most of the window's labels. Each font is increased by one unit. The next icon toggles the overall window and texture element size. It also increases the font size by two units. Between the font and window size options there are four available font sizes and two window element size options. The arrow icon in the lower-right is a re-size handle; it can be dragged to increase or decrease the window size in either dimension. Each contract has a title bar above it with information and options for the contract. The contract difficulty, or prestige, is displayed on the left with one to three stars. The time remaining for the contract is shown next. It updates every five seconds (at high time-warp several days can go by during this period) and switches to days and hours, and turns yellow, when the counter gets low. The year/day time is dependent on your selection of Earth/Kerbin days in the KSP settings menu. The A icon can be used to display the flag and name of the contract's agency. The eyeball icon can be used to move the contract into the hidden or active contract list. The pin icon can be used to pin the icon to the top of the list, regardless of sort type or order; a contract's pinned state is persistent. The checkbox icon can be used to move the contract into a different contract mission list or create a new one. The blue icon at the end can be used to display contract notes if they exist; these are different from individual parameter notes. The primary contract and parameter display shows the same information as the stock window. In orange is the contract title. It is a button that can be pushed to collapse or expand the contract's parameters. When completed the contract text will turn green; when failed it will turn red. The contract parameters are shown in white. When completed these will turn green. Contract parameter notes can be displayed using the blue icon. Sub-parameters are offset slightly and are shown in a darker color. When all sub-parameters are completed they will be collapsed into their parent parameter and no longer displayed. The rewards for each contract and their parameters are displayed on the right side of the window. Funds, Rep, and Science rewards are displayed depending on how wide the window is. Rewards are in green, penalties are in red. The amount of any reward/penalty due to strategies, if any, is displayed in parenthesis. When the green checkbox icon is selected the mission list will appear. The current contract mission lists are displayed in this window. A green checkmark indicator on the left indicates that the currently selected contract is already in that mission. The green number to the right is the amount of contracts in that list. The red x box on the right can be used to remove a contract from any mission that it is present in. Selecting any existing mission will add the contract to it. Selecting the "Create New Mission" option will open the mission creator window. New missions can be created after giving them a name. Missions must have a name, can't use the same name, and must be under 20 characters. All progress nodes, their rewards, and in some cases, information about when they were completed is shown in this window. There are four types of Progress Nodes. Interval Nodes: These are nodes with multiple levels of progression, such as the altitude or speed records. Standard Nodes: These are nodes not specific to any one Celestial Body. Point of Interest Nodes: These are nodes completed by visiting anomalies. Celestial Body-Specific Nodes: These are nodes which are given separately for each Celestial Body Interval progress nodes. Standard progress nodes. The mission title bar is shown at the top of the window. The Title Bar is a button that can be used to switch to Progress Node mode. The edit mission window is opened with the pencil icon in the mission title bar for all but the Master Mission. Change the name of any mission. Delete any mission; this won't affect the contracts, and all contracts are still available in the Master Mission list.

  6. Hey, so since update 1.4.2, I'm now getting a ton of useless messages regarding my contracts. Like if I'm supposed to test a certain part at speed and altitude, I'm getting messages telling me I'm at the required speed or altitude even if I don't have the part on the craft. When you have like a dozen contracts going at the same time, it gets really irritating, because I'm getting messages constantly and none of them relate to what I'm actually doing. This is something that cropped up as soon as I installed 1.4.2. Is there a way to turn this off? I'm running a stock install with no mods. The only weird thing I can think of is I started this career in 1.4.0 and carried it through until 1.4.2. Thanks in Advance UPDATE: It's gotten even worse. I have a contract for a satellite that specifies "Maintain Stability for 10 Seconds", and now every 10 seconds if I'm not rotating or accelerating, and no matter what craft I'm flying or what orbit it's in, I'm getting a notification that I maintained stability for 10 seconds. Please help, this is really bizarre and annoying.

    1.4.1 Contract order

    I'm in the early stages of my "new version means new tech tree playthrough" career game and I'm finding that the order in which contracts become available is a bit strange. Previously there was a fairly logical progression to these, but now the order seems random at times. For example, I've just been offered (and accepted) a contract to build an outpost on Duna supporting 8 kerbals with 6000 units of fuel. Nothing strange in that, except that this was the first contract offered beyond Mun and Minmus and I'd not even seen an outpost contract for those two bodies yet. Oh yeah, not sent anything, even unmanned beyond Kerbin system SOI in this game either. Another, less extreme example was the contract to dock two craft around Mun, that appeared before docking or even rendezvous contracts around Kerbin were available. Is this a known behaviour of 1.4 ?

    Have tourists on station

    I have a contract to place a new station on a solar orbit. However it has a part saying have 3 tourists on the station. I have not got any tourists and it is not a secondary step, all of them must be done to achieve any. Help plz?
  9. This may be related to the bug other people have reported about the game reverting to a previous state - I'm playing career mode on the PS4. With some contracts - so far, I've mainly had this problem with equipment tests for the R&D vendor - I will complete the test and satisfy all parameters, get the green text that says the contract was completed, end the mission, recover the craft, go back to mission control - and there's the same contract in my 'active' list, waiting to be completed. This has happened repeatedly with parachutes and solid fuel boosters tests for the R&D vendor. If you need a gameplay video I can probably make one, since it seems to happen consistently. I haven't diligently tracked what's happening to my funds and reputation balances (or KSC local time) through all this, so I can't tell you if the entire game is simply reverting to an earlier state or not. But I can't imagine why it would happen with equipment test contracts and not with, say, orbital rescues which don't seem to have the same issue. EDIT: Shutting the PS4 down completely and restarting it apparently fixed the problem with one of the contracts - when I flew the same "haul the parachute up to 5-8k meters" mission again, it registered as completed.
  10. I've finished my first Eve/Gilly mission in my current career save, and what does the next exploration contract entail? Go back to Gilly, where I've already been, and transfer crew between vessels, which I've already done. I think to myself, "I'll just warp time and hopefully get that Jool or Bop contract". I do that, what do I see? Transfer crew between vessels around Ike, which I did ages ago. Warp again, "Dock around Mun", already done that. It's giving me repeated contracts to do mundane tasks that I've done before and I'm not getting contracts to go any further than Duna, and it's really beginning to annoy me.
  11. Xbox One EE Cursor controls Career mode, hard setting, purchase of upgrades disabled because it doesn't work Bug: Contracts vanish from the list, moving from the mission control building after accepting a contract to the VAB then to the launch pad - upon arrival at the launch pad the selected contract was no longer present - returning to mission control indicated it was not on the "available" list, checking the "current" contracts showed none currently in progress, the "completed" tab was also empty despite half a dozen contracts having been undertaken and completed, cashed in etc. Notification messages for completion of contracts still present, but not in mission control. Expected behaviour: once selected a contract remains active until completed or discarded
  12. Hi, I'm playing a career mode game, and upgraded the Mission Control building to Level 3 (maximum) a long time ago. The game says this upgrade should allow "unlimited number of active contracts". Although the upgrade did indeed remove the hard limit on the number of contracts, I found that the game simply didn't offer me any more contracts once I had 14 active. Whenever I'd complete a contract, I'd be offered a new one, one-for-one, but no more than that. One day when I completed a story contract, the game offered me two in its place, which expanded the "rotation" to 15, but a few contracts later, for no apparent reason, I completed one and was not offered a new one, reducing it back to 14. The other day I completed a non-storyline contract and was offered two in its place, so it's now back up to 15. Does anyone know what's going on here? Is this "intended" behavior by the game? An arbitrary technical limitation perhaps (e.g. due to the contracts being stored in a fixed-size array in the game code)? I would really like to be able to have more than 15 active contracts. Right now, more than half of the effective "slots" are tied up with long-term missions that I can't (or don't want to) start yet - e.g. I need to unlock the requisite tech tree nodes to complete ore contracts, and I don't want to skip any of the storyline contracts (thus I can't escape Kerbin until I've finished exploring Minmus, since that would skip that contract). This leaves only a few slots for active turnover of contracts, which makes it difficult to e.g. get enough tourists on the books to fill up a big, efficient craft to take them to the Mun. Is there any way to "fix" this? Perhaps a setting, or a mod? It seems weird for the "size of the market" to be effectively capped like this; one would expect the market to increase as I demonstrate the ability to perform more ambitious missions more efficiently. Thanks!

    Контракты

    "Отказ от выполнения контракта не считается провалом и не накладывает никаких штрафных санкций. Вместо этого, при аннулировании договора, аванс возвращается обратно, а репутация остается без изменений. Это можно использовать для контрактов, срок выполнения которых заканчивается раньше возможности их завершения"(С)Википедия- не считаете ли вы это не совсем правильным?! Имхо! Было бы прикольнее, если ты уже взял контракт, то отмена его считалась бы ПРОВАЛОМ и штрафовали бы тебя по полной, так же как и если выйдет срок, а если просто хочешь в списке контрактов отменить, чтоб появился другой вариант то снижалась бы только репутация!
  14. Hello, A lot of contracts say test this part at this altitude with this speed and it can take hours of trial and error (for a newbie like me) to test 1 part. I want to progress in career mode but at this rate, I'll never get anywhere... so I am wondering is there an easy way to calculate what speed your ship will be doing at altitude X with certain settings? I find it incredibly frustrating to do these kind of contracts, I literally make a note of my engines/settings/stages and then what speed I was doing at what altitude, adjust, try again, fail, cry, adjust, rinse, repeat... Thanks, Ryan
  15. I accepted a contract to put a satellite in orbit around Minmus. When I try and get the orbit close to the required orbit I can't get the contract to complete. Does anyone know how close you have to get to the required orbit to complete the contact? I had the periapsis within 5km and the apoapsis spot on but apparently I wasn't close enough. Also does anyone have any general tips with matching orbits? I am at the start of career mode with very little science unlocked and even with my weakest engine with tiny thrust the orbit changes lots in seconds. I would imagine Minmus isn't the easiest one to start with as well.
  16. What it says on the tin: Would it possible for Kerbals that go MIA (i.e. their craft goes beyond physics range and is despawned) to be available for rescue as a contract? They could simply get spawned at the location their craft was despawned at when the contract is taken.
  17. Hi, i 've got a problem with asteroid contracts which come with the condition "Have a previously undisturbed Class X asteroid in tow" resetting whenever i save&load. Specifically i'm dealing with a contract to put a Class E into orbit of Minmus which is quite time-consuming with ISRU and low dV changes, but i can not save my progress because whenever i have my vessel "docked"(3 Klaws i rammed into the rock) and saved, the asteroid in question is not registered as previously undisturbed/part of the contract anymore. Meaning i can't solve the contract. The same problem arises with another contract which asks for station building around Duna on a previously undisturbed asteroid (i think, the condition also resets when changing vessels on map mode), making rendezvous with station parts after orbital insertion impossible. Is there a trick to circumvent this? Like savefile hacking to make the asteroid a viable target again or sth?
  18. I want to get more contracts but the game isn't offering any. I have a fully-upgraded Mission Control, so I have unlimited space
  19. I'm playing the Alien Space Program mod and I can't complete the "Launch our first vessel" contract on Tylo or Minmus. Is there a way to manually complete the contract so I can actually do things in career mode? I think it's got something to do with airless worlds, because Duna still works.
  20. Pretty much exactly as it sounds. I very recently managed to update my 1.2.2 save to 1.3.1--which realistically probably took ~10 hours of reinstalling every mod and testing to see what worked and what didn't--and was settling down to play when I realized that ever new contract the game generated for me is missing the contract agent (provider) name. It's just blank. All other data is present. Most of my existing contracts have names. And they all have the flag graphics loaded up. Some tests seem to suggest this is only for modded providers, since things like "Kerbin's First" and "Sean's Cannery" still show up. I have no idea what could be causing this. I went ahead and installed Contract Configurator, which was something I'd overlooked, but the new contracts generated don't seem to be fixed. If I open up the actual save file, my contracts all seem to have agent names listed in the file, the game just...doesn't want to load them up? I've never encountered this issue before.
  21. The contracts that ask to launch a new probe and reach a specific orbit don't work. It's like they don't "see" what i am doin', they don't mark anything. I read all, i'm nah stupid, they don't even mark "build a new probe that have an antenna and can generate power" which is stupidly easy... I have those mods: Redux, alarm clock, FMRs, KerbalReusabilityExpansion, recovery controller, module manager 2.8.1. KSP 1.3.0 1804. New career. EDIT: i solved reinstalling th' game...

    Add-on for Satellite Contracts

    I am a bit bored with the basic "put a satellite here" contracts, and wanted to spice it up. I use Contract Configurator for Clever Sats but even still it hasn't quite scratched the itch. I thought that being given a randomly generated satellite (sizes/parts/layout) and told where to place it might be a fun spin on the existing satellite contract model. It could be displayed as a popup when entering the VAB (similar to the passenger UI when on the launch pad) where you would select the contract and it would insert the part for you to start attaching items to. Alternatively, the contracts could specify satellite requirements themselves (similar to the space station check lists that already exist) Must generate power Must have x units of electricity Must have x science experiments on board Specific number of satellites per rocket (if even possible?) Could also name specific parts to be installed on the satellite, but might be problematic with multiple part mods installed. Does this exist as its own add-on or as an enhancement to an existing add-on?
  23. Is there any way to toggle the display of contracts in the Tracking Center? I'm not crazy about how when I go to the Tracking Center my display is all mixed up with all the possible orbital changes, etc. I guess I could just go to Mission Control and just decline everything, but I would have to just keep doing that when new contracts appear. Is there any way to simply toggle them on/off? Thanks!
  24. Like Principia? Want contracts utilizing Lagrange points? Now you can have them. This mod extends Contract Configurator to let you configure contracts that can make sure your within a range of distances between two celestial bodies (a parent and a child), as well as an angle between the child body's prograde vector, and the line between the vessel and the child body (useful for differentiating between L4 and L5). Download: Github View the Source Installation: Copy the GameData folder into the KSP root directory and merge them with the existing GameData folder. This will not make contracts. View the github repo on how to configure your own contracts. Feel free to make some and share them with others! Changelog:
  25. All of my contracts are either rescue someone from orbit or to launch a satellite in some incredibly specific orbit. The satellite part seems impossible at my current tech level so im left with rescue contracts but im not sure where to even start.
