  1. NOTE: SpaceY Expanded 1.4 requires KSP 1.4! NOTE: Requires ModuleManager and SpaceY Heavy Lifters as dependencies! SpaceY Expanded Optional Parts Add-On for SpaceY-Lifters SpaceY Expanded is an optional expansion to the SpaceY Heavy Lifters, adding 7.5m parts and other accessories that go beyond the original intent of the original main pack. NOTE: Requires ModuleManager and SpaceY Heavy Lifters as dependencies! Cooperates with other mods: TweakScale FAR / NEAR AVC (Add-on Version Checker) Engine Ignitor Community Tech Tree HotRockets! CryoEgines Connected Living Space ModuleManager (for mild customization of the tech tree) Part of the NecroBones suite of mods, that work nicely together: Modular Rocket Systems (stock-alike parts pack, NASA-like alternatives, and filling the gaps) SpaceY Heavy Lifters Parts Pack (stock-balanced large rocket parts, 5m parts, large SRBs) Color Coded Canisters (replacement models/textures for stock fuel tanks: prettier, cleaner, and diameter color-coding for the tank end-caps) Fuel Tanks Plus (collection of large stock-like tanks with Color Coded Canister style) ColorFuel Lines (color-selctable fuel lines) Lithobrake Exploration Technologies (lander parts, large chutes/legs/ladders/etc) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Image Gallery: (Note that the stats, appearances, and descriptions of the parts shown below are subject to change, or may be out of date) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Future updates: All sorts of things are possible, so who knows? Some ideas for additional parts: 3.75m, 5m, and 7.5m cargo/service bays More RCS, OMS options, both for monoprop and LFO Additional launch clamp designs Who knows? --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Installation Instructions: 1. If upgrading from a previous copy, it's recommended to delete the old "SpaceY-Expanded" folder first. 2. Backup your "saves" folder! While not required for installing mods, it's a good idea anyway. If any parts you have already used (including stock parts) fail to load, you'll have ships getting deleted! 3. Download and open the ZIP file. 4. Copy the "SpaceY-Expanded" folder into your "GameData" folder. 5. Make sure you have up-to-date copies of Module Manager, and SpaceY-Lifters installed. 6. If upgrading, check your designs in the VAB/SPH. If attachment nodes have changed, you may need to reposition parts. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Troubleshooting: Problem: Fuel tanks or SRBs flash different colors, with glitchy "z-fighting": Usually it boils down to one of a few different things. Now that I've seen probably most of them, I can give you a good list: 1. Everything is installed correctly, but ModuleManager's cache hasn't noticed the changes yet. Fix: This is a great one to try first. Delete the file called "ModuleManager.ConfigCache" in GameData. ModuleManager recreates it on the next KSP start. 2. ModuleManager isn't installed. Fix: Install it. 3. This mod is installed incorrectly, or you've deleted the color-change ModuleManager configs. Fix: Reinstall the mod correctly, and in its entirety. The MM config files include rules for what to do when color-changing isn't available, so please don't delete those. 4. Firespitter and/or InterstellarFuelSwitch are installed, but not functioning. Fix: The most likely cause is that the version of FS or IFS doesn't work with your version of KSP (for instance, you upgraded to KSP 1.1, and the mod is meant for 1.0.5 or earlier), or your copy is only partially installed. Delete it, and install the latest version of it. 5. ModuleManager thinks color-changing is available via Firespitter or InterstellarFuelSwitch, but neither is installed. Fix: This is a little trickier to pinpoint. Either another mod has bad rules in it (for instance using "FOR[Firespitter]" instead of "NEEDS[Firespitter]") and is therefore tricking ModuleManager, or one of these two mods is only partially installed. That could happen if you removed them via CKAN but the directories still exist, which ModuleManager will see as having them installed. To fix, either make sure both of those mods are completely uninstalled, or install one (or both) of them. Only the DLL from one of them is needed, you don't need the entire mod. But it needs to be running if ModuleManager thinks its there. 6. It's possible that another mod may be confused that changes how VAB/SPH tweakables or engine shrouds work. This is an odd case, but not impossible. When you don't have Firespitter or InterstellarFuelSwitch installed, the alternate paint jobs are disabled by turning them into "engine shrouds" that correspond to an attachment node that is a kilometer outside the VAB. If another mod interferes with this, such as defaulting all shrouds to "on" even when detached, then you might also see z-fighting. Sadly, the solution might be to simply not use the mods together. Problem: Textures are missing and you're seeing a lot magenta (purple/pink): 1. Files may be missing, or not where the mod is expecting to find them. Fix: Make sure you've installed the mod correctly, in its entirety, and in the right location. Don't rename folders. You can try completely deleting the mod and reinstalling (which is the best way to update the mod anyway). Also make sure the mod's dependencies are installed (SpaceY Expanded requires SpaceY Lifters, for instance). 2. ActiveTextureManagement is goofing it up. Fix: Either remove ATM, or try deleting ATM's cache. ATM frequently has cache issues that cause problems for texture reassignment across folder boundaries. ATM doesn't help as much as it used to, now that stock KSP and most mods use DDS texture format. We've included configs to try to stop ATM from processing this mod's folder, but that may not be working either. Problem: Engine exhaust plumes are missing: Cause: ModuleManager thinks that HotRockets is installed, but it actually isn't. Fix 1: Install HotRockets so that it's a non-issue. Fix 2: Go into the SpaceY folder(s) and delete "SpaceY_HotRockets.cfg". This will keep it from trying to use the HotRockets plumes. Fix 3: Figure out which other mod is causing the confusion, and remove it. We still don't know which mods are causing this, but it's probably due to someone using a "FOR" statement in their MM config instead of "NEEDS". --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download From: SpaceDock -or- -or- (NOTE: Don't forget to install both ModuleManager and SpaceY-Lifters when using SpaceY-Expanded) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Creative Commons 4.0 Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike CC BY-NC-SA --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Revision History: 1.4 (2018-04-02) - KSP 1.4 update. - Reworked color-changing to use KSP 1.4's mesh switcher. - Flag decals disabled for now, since the stock mesh switcher doesn't play nicely with them. - Disabled auto-caps on tanks, due to KSP bugs over several versions. - Added some missing definitions for Modular Fuel Tanks. - Changed ModularFuelTanks config to use consolidated wildcard patch. 1.3 (2016-10-18) - Update. - Moved service bays to Payload tab. - Added a pair of 10m-3.75m engine adapters. - Added 10m stack separator. - Added two new lengths of 10m fuel tanks. - Added "SaturnV" paint scheme to 10m tanks to match new engine adapters. - Removed some unnecessary duplicate geometry from 10m fuel tanks. 1.2 (2016-10-12) - Update & KSP 1.2 compatibility. - Added KSP 1.2 and KerbNet modules to probe cores. - Corrected a mesh alignment issue on the E1 Emu engine. - Added 10m parts, including some large thrust plates for SpaceX BFT/MCT/ITS styled lifters. - Categories adjusted for several parts, corresponding to 1.2 changes. 1.1.11 (2016-08-01) - Tweaks. - Icon-only shroud added to fairing base, for easy identification in menu. - Removed RemoteTech modules from probe core (now handled by patch in SpaceY-Lifters). - Added a compatibility exclusion for HPTechTree. 1.1.10 (2016-07-12) - Tweaks. - Restricted liquid fuel engines, fairings, and decouplers to non-surface part testing contracts, to match SRBs. - Adjusted some nickname tags on engines. 1.1.9 (2016-05-01) - Tweaks. - Updated Probe core to use IndicatorLights if available. - Probe cores now also have a toggle option for light-up labels that correspond to the indicator lights. - Converted many texture placeholders to DDS format (not that this gains much of anything). 1.1.8 (2016-04-25) - Tweaks. - More search keywords on engines. - Added collider setting for procedural fairing base. - Updated heat shield's staging settings to match stock changes in 1.1. - Fixed the "always transparent" problem in the VAB for the service/cargo bays. 1.1.7 (2016-04-17) - Career fixes. - Drastically reduced career prices for fuel tanks, to bring them into line with stock again. - Adjusted career prices of E1,E2,E4,R9 engines, to bring them into line with stock again. - Increased prices on Penguin (P-series) engines. 1.1.6 (2016-3-31) - KSP 1.1 Update. - Moved ModuleManager patches to "Patches" folder. - Added tags for part searches. - Updated ModuleManager inclusion. 1.1.5 (2016-01-29) - Tweaks. - Updated the CryoEngines config to be consistent with its new propellant ratio. 1.1.4 (2016-01-14) - Tweaks. - Removed the tech tree nodes, since they've been moved to SpaceY Lifters (requires SpaceY Lifters 1.8.2+). 1.1.3 (2016-01-11) - Fixes. - CryoEngines fix: The Penguin engines should no longer display their default plume effects even when not running. 1.1.2 (2016-01-02) - Fixes. - CryoEngines fix: The Penguin engines should no longer run more than one engine mode at once. 1.1.1 (2016-01-02) - Fixes. - Included ModuleManager version updated with its 2.6.16 bugfix update. - Added a "needs" condition for TweakScale patches. 1.1 (2015-12-31) - Texture Compatibility. - Removed 7.5m fuel tank texture, since it was moved to SpaceY Lifters. - Repointed all necessary texture assignments to the new location. - Adjusted UV-mapping of 5m texture as needed to corrospond to changes in Lifters. - Changed "ModularFuelTanks" config to also apply if RealFuels is installed. 1.0 (2015-12-17) - Stable. - Let's call this the 1.0 release.
