  1. Contract Pack: Giving Aircraft a Purpose 1.6.1 Requires the latest release of Contract Configurator from https://github.com/jrossignol/ContractConfigurator/releases Requires the latest release of Module Manager from https://github.com/sarbian/ModuleManager Giving Aircraft a Purpose (GAP) is a contract pack for your aerospace program, providing aviation milestones to achieve, regular flights to service, and Coast Guard rescue . This contract pack is compatible with all stock and modded careers (except RSS). Purpose: To provide a useful purpose for the existence of aircraft in a Career game, and promote the use of stock runways, helipads, and DLC airfields. Spiel: Runways and helipads are meant to be used, not just sit there and look pretty. This pack provides a small set of repeatable contracts for early career aircraft, and thus provides the career player with a predictable source of income, science, or reputation return (depending on the type of contract) using a standard fleet of aircraft you design. It beats having to design a science car, or one-time use craft, or send a probe to nowhere, when all you need is just a little bit more cash, science, or reputation to advance your space program. Of course, you may have so much fun flying things around that you may forget you have a space program, but if so, then I've succeeded! All contracts and vessels included in this pack are completely playable in stock KSP (except the BDArmory expansion), but I highly recommend these mods to enhance your gameplay with GAP: AirplanePlus (Propellers, Jets, Airplane parts) (GAP recognizes AirplanePlus parts) Kerbal Aircraft Expansion (KAX) (Minimalistic set of stock-alike propellers and helicopter parts) (GAP recognizes KAX parts) Kerbal Rotor Expansion (Additional rotors for contract completion) Waypoint Manager (For better waypoint management and navigation) (GAP uses a lot of waypoints) Wider Contracts App (Increases the width of the contract checklist for better readability) To complete helicopter or part retrieval missions, I also suggest these mods: Kerbal Attachment System (KAS) (For attaching winches, fuel ports, and parts to parts on EVA) Kerbal Inventory System (KIS) (For carrying the above parts while on EVA) I recommend that you consider taking the helmet off your Kerbals when flying in the open air in a command seat: TextureReplacer with Cetera's Suits (get both on CKAN!) (Non space suit Kerbals while on Kerbin, smell the fresh air from your Command Seat flying machine) If You Stream or Record While Playing GAP: You sir/madam are amazing. Please post a note in this thread or PM to let me know if you use this mod in a recorded play through or mod review as I and others would love to watch! If your recording and play is fairly decent and will help players get familiar with GAP, I would love to reference it in this OP!

Regular repeatable stunt, tourist, and scheduled passenger flights. Rescue missions to retrieve mountain climbers, downed test pilots, and adrift sea crews. Fully compatible with new and existing stock and modded careers. To Get Started: The first immediate contracts are not contracts at all but rather GAP: Economy contracts that are originally intended to give starting players basic parts from which to fully enjoy playing GAP. Originally intended so that Wright Flyer type aircraft could be built, the part contracts were free in previous versions of GAP, but now require funds to purchase these prototype technologies. The economy contracts are designed to help bypass any need for GAP to recommend a tech tree for starter technologies. There are three contract trees each with starting contracts: The Wright Aeronautical: Build and fly your first glider! contract will appear when you've acquired a Command Seat, and any flying control surfaces. The KSC Airclines: Flight 101 contract will appear when you flown to completed the 2500 meter altitude contract. The KSC Coast Guard: Coast Guard Rescue Certification contract will appear when you've completed the helipad mission. Agencies: These are the agencies in the pack that will offer regular or semi-regular contracts, and special missions: Prototype Marketplace - Offering loans, and part prototypes for aeronautical and utility parts for a fledgling aviation program. Giving Aircraft a Purpose - Aerospace milestones, and stunt goals for your aviation program. KSC Coast Guard - Our motto is Always Ready - Kemper Keratus! Providing air, land, and sea rescue. (Used for occasional rescue and recovery opportunities, mostly near KSC ocean) KSC Airlines - The official airline of the Kerbal Space Center. Download & Installation: Get it on CKAN! (Recommended) SpaceDock GitHub Changelog: https://github.com/inigmatus/GAP/blob/master/CHANGELOG.txt KNOWN ISSUES: This pack is in active development. Please mind the GAP. Please raise any and all issues or enhancement requests on the GAP GitHub issue tracker. Recovering a vessel via the Space Center View or Tracking Station will not complete a contract if it requires recovery of a vessel. Work around is to simply recover all vessels in flight mode view. https://github.com/inigmatus/GAP/issues/7 Failing a contract may not always clean up any extra Kerbals used for the contract. If you can't revert, or don't wish to, then to clean up, simply recover the affected Kerbals, and then simply remove them from your roster. All failed contracts will reappear in Mission Control eventually. Use Alt F12 and access the Contract cheat menu to decline multiple contracts quickly and force regeneration of any contract that fails to appear, if necessary. CREDITS: Thanks goes to the following individuals for their contributions to this contract pack. Without them, none of this would have happened: @nightingale - creator of Contract Configurator. tirelessly responsive and an amazing coder and modder without whom this mod would not exist. @theonegalen - graciously donated funds for the KSP DLC Making History expansion and ongoing development, so I can continue developing GAP for DLC users. Also an awesome tester of GAP contracts! @ThunderofZeus - graciously donated funds for KSP DLC Making History expansion and ongoing development, so I can continue developing GAP for DLC users. @seanmcdougall - creator of Take Command mod @keptin - creator of Kerbal Aircraft eXpansion @maculator- creator of Kerbal Aircraft Builders, for inspiring me with his pioneering example into aircraft based contracts @severedsolo - always a great resource for contract development @pandoras kitten - designer of a number of craft seen in the series above @RixKillian - designer of the KSS Rix aircraft carrier @Speeding Mullet - designer of a number of props for GAP and dozens more who have contributed their time and talent to make this pack one of the most useful for KSP.
  2. Give Aircraft a Purpose doesn't work with Galileo Planet Pack. When GPP is installed, GAP doesn't show up at all in mission control, but the flags still do. Is there any way to make GAP work with GPP? such as with a MM patch? http://imgur.com/a/QMd71 The two screenshots are from the same install of KSP 1.2.2, one with GPP and the other without. GAP and all dependencies were installed through CKAN, GPP and all dependencies were manually installed.
  3. From the GAP (Give Aircraft a Purpose) contract pack: GAP contract: Speed 100 (or, How it started out so well) Craft: K-35-100 Flounder (KerbalX link) Operation: Stage to ignite lower engine, which has plenty of power for takeoff and supercruise, and is probably the safest and most efficient way to fly the plane. Stage again to ignite the upper engine and fly it the Kerbal way. Conventional landings are possible, but dangerous. Due to the high thrust of the engines, they must be completely throttled down before enough airspeed can be bled off to safely touch the ground. And then the plane tends to do donuts on its wheels before coming to rest. Facilities: Level 1 Crew: Pilot Kerman is recommended for SAS. Mass 7.66t Cost 12,322.0 No. of Stages 3 Crew Capacity 1 Part Count 16 Built in KSP 1.1.3 Size 8.99 x 3.88 x 9.06 Edit: I really wish there was a way to resize images in this editor.
  4. hi all crashateers, Since 1.0.5. ive just messing bout making contraptions til 1.2 arrives, when i noticed a big gap between floor and a parked vehicle on flat ground, looks terrible!! i havent noticed this before til now, havent really looked to be fair or played that much, but like i say, looks amateurish. its not just me is it? have a check and see how detached a vehicle seems from the ground to you. im 1.1.3 btw steam & 17 mods, this isnt bug report as i dont think it is a bug or mod effect, probly collider of those wheels......anyhoo Ive attached some pics in both db & imgur, if neither work let me know https://www.dropbox.com/home?preview=20160822210747_1.jpg http://imgur.com/a/Hpqcr what dya reckon? Aah, i embed wrong image lol this ones doing 11m/s, but i have jpg same vehicle parked, brakes on honest.
  5. I need boats to spawn in distress and rescue Kerbals from. I need at least three more good boats, could be any size, but preferably small stock part count (under 100), with Command Seats and maybe even cabins. Crewed by anywhere from 2-10 Kerbals. They do not have to functional (heck they could even look disabled) since they are props meant to stage a Kerbals in distress. Contract Configurator can spawn any vessel from my GAP\Assets folder anywhere in the game. Example of a rescue mission: (see link to the GAP Contract Pack in my sig) UPDATE: Contract Pack: Giving Aircraft a Purpose 1.0 Beta is released! Giving Aircraft a Purpose (GAP): http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/129208-contract-pack-giving-aircraft-a-purpose-gap-10-beta-air-flights-tours-coast-guard-sts-105jan-4-2016/
