  1. Hello everyone! About a year ago we made a commitment to provide console players a faithful and worthy version of KSP on consoles, and to realize this endeavour, we teamed up with the experienced team of BlitWorks, who helped us to build it from the ground up. After a long and difficult process, we are finally here, excited and proud to officially announce the launch of Kerbal Space Program Enhanced Edition on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. In Kerbal Space Program Enhanced Edition, you’ll find a broad range of improvements and features that improve the overall game experience from the prior console version. We have also added reworked and console-optimized UI, a new control scheme for the maneuver nodes controls, and three new controller presets that players will be able to switch between at any time during play: Cursor, Radial and Simplified. Cursor Returning KSP players on consoles might be used to the previous control scheme, so the Cursor preset keeps things familiar for veteran players while adding a few enhancements as well. Radial We also wanted to revamp the Cursor preset by making a lot of low-priority or low-usage commands available on radial menus, instead of requiring the player to do a lot of cursor-mode pointing and clicking. So the Radial preset uses a lot of actions of the Cursor preset while incorporating radial menus that speed up the access to different commands. Simplified We also created the Simplified preset, an entirely new control scheme designed to be easier to pick up and play with a controller. With this control scheme, the cursor has been replaced with a reticle in the middle of the screen; players can move the screen behind the reticle, rather than moving the reticle itself. We think console players who are new to KSP will especially enjoy the Simplified preset. Additionally Kerbal Space Program Enhanced Edition incorporates the KSP 1.2.2 “Loud and Clear” update. This means that all the features and improvements made with this update are now available on consoles for the first time! Some of these are: CommNet and KerbNet We’ve added communication network capabilities to the Antenna and Probe parts throughout the game to simulate the feeling of building your communications network from home base out to your Kerbals as they travel their star system. With the KerbNet capabilities on more advanced probes you can map your environment and place targets for travel as well. Control and Flow The SAS system got a much-needed overhaul in this update to help keep you pointed in the right direction, and the fuel flow system was rewritten to give you total control over feeding your engines. ...and More There are a number of other improvements and changes compared to the prior console version. For instance, contracts are now bound to player progression and are assigned based on in-game actions, and wheels stability and performance have been improved as well. And if you are an owner of the previous console version, we want to remind you that you can redeem the Enhanced Edition free of cost. Just follow these instructions. KSP Enhanced Edition will appear on your library as a separate game and no data will be overwritten from the older versions, so you won’t lose your progress in those versions. However, because the Enhanced Edition was built from the ground up, save files from the previous version will not be compatible with the new Enhanced Edition. But that does mean you’ll be able to get those trophies and achievements a second time! Remember that if you encounter any bugs and/or issues, you can help us out by reporting them in the Console Project within our Bugtracker and/or the Technical Support Thread for consoles in our Forum. This will help us with any future patches for the game. As with every release this thread will be used to bundle all general discussion about the new version so that the forums can continue to actively host threads on other topics as well.

  2. Hello everyone! New gadgets are coming from the Research and Development facility, the kind that will get Kerbals screaming: MOAR BOOSTERS!!! A brand new update is here and with it comes better performance, fresh new features, improved visuals, and new parts being added to our players’ creative repertoire! Kerbal Space Program 1.8: Moar Boosters!!! is an update focused on making the game perform and look better, all while introducing more quality of life features that will improve the overall player experience. We’re also bringing some new solid rocket boosters to the VAB, as well as introducing some exclusive treats for owners of the Breaking Ground Expansion. Let’s go through some of the update’s highlights below: Unity Upgrade Moar Boosters!!! brings an upgrade to the underlying engine of the game to Unity 2019.2, which helped us implement performance and graphics improvements, as well as better rendering performance and a reduction of frame rate stutters. With the new tools that this upgrade provides, we’ll be able to continue refining the game in upcoming updates. Celestial Body Visual Improvements Mun, Minmus, Duna, Ike, Eve and Gilly have new high-quality texture maps & graphic shaders, and now look sharper and more realistic! You will also be able to select the celestial bodies’ shader quality in the settings and set them to low (legacy), medium or high, with improvements being visible across the board. These are just part of the first batch of celestial bodies being overhauled, slowly but surely we will continue this endeavor. Map Mode improvements Map mode received some adjustments too! Now you can use docking mode and stage your craft whilst in map mode. The stage display button (formerly stage mode) now serves as a toggle to show and hide the stage stack, whether you’re in flight or map view, and selected map labels will now persist when going back and forth between map and flight mode. New SRBs! A range of new solid rocket boosters have been added to the game. From the tiny .625m stack size Mite to the titanic 2.5m wide, 144ton Clydesdale, these new boosters will offer a range of versatile solid-fuel options. Making History owners get an extra bonus here too with the “Pollux” and a 1.875m nose cone to fit on top of it. Breaking Ground Exclusives Kerbal Space Program 1.8: Moar Boosters!!! also includes some exclusive content for owners of the Breaking Ground Expansion. A new set of fan blades and shrouds will continue to push the creativity of KSP players even further. Use them to create drones, ducted fan jets, or anything you can imagine. Improvements to the helicopter blades and the robotic part resource consumption have also been included. The latter will now have better info on consumption and improved options for power-out situations. And more!

  6. Hello everyone! Kerbal Space Program 1.7: Room to Maneuver has arrived and with it: new features, improvements, revamps and bug fixes! We are committed to continue supporting, updating and finding ways to improve our player’s experience by listening to our community and delivering substantial releases. As part of this effort, we have packed Kerbal Space Program 1.7: Room to Maneuver with a great amount of content for you to enjoy! This update includes two new useful navigation upgrades, the revamp of all of the small maneuvering motors, including new variants for the Twitch, Ant and Spider, as well as a brand new galaxy texture map to have our astronauts mesmerized by the beauty of the celestial vault. A great deal of bug fixes have also been packed into this update, not two mention a new 3.75 meter nose cone and a 5m one for those extra-large fuel tanks in the Making History Expansion! Let’s go through some of this update’s highlights: Maneuver Mode Probably the most impactful feature within this update, the Maneuver Mode is a new navigation tool that gives you access to useful orbital information in both Flight and Map mode that will also allow you to precisely and easily adjust maneuvers nodes, all to help you fine tune your interplanetary transfers. Altimeter mode toggle A long-requested quality-of-life feature that will allow you to toggle the altitude mode from Above Sea Level (ASL) to Above Ground Level (AGL) by simply clicking on the new icon to the altimeter. Hopefully this will improve the KSC’s survival rates… Part revamps This time around, small maneuvering engines were the focus of our revamping efforts. The Ant, Twitch, Puff, Place-Anywhere 7, RV-105 Thruster Block, and Vernor Engines now look better than ever, plus the Twitch, Ant and Spider include new stunning variants. On top of that, we’ve added new tuning values on some of those engines. Galaxy Texture Map Update The game’s galaxy cubemap has been updated in Room to Maneuver. This environment map has been carefully crafted to reflect a nicer color palette and more defined celestial objects. With double the resolution, it will be impossible not to enjoy the view while exploring Kerbin’s star system.  Click here to see high res images. Scrollable PAW Another small quality-of-life feature we’re adding to the game is the addition of a scrollbar to the Part-Action-Window. This will keep the PAW within the bounds of the screen when they get too big, something that might come in handy for players who use mods and fill those up And more! To learn more you can read the full Changelog here: =============================================== v1.7.0 ======================================== +++ Improvements * Upgraded Galaxy Textures. * Add new flight UI mode that includes in-depth orbital information. * Add advanced maneuver node editor, allowing player to edit maneuver nodes more precisely. * Add an Altitude toggle function to the Altimeter.

  9. Hello everyone! We are overjoyed and deeply proud to officially announce Kerbal Space Program 1.5: Dressed for Success! This update aims to continue with our goal of advancing KSP and improving our players’ game experience. Within Dressed for Success you’ll find brand new features and bug fixes for both the base game and the expansion, including a burn time stage indicator for maneuver nodes based on dV. Another key aspect in this update 1.5 is the standardization of the game’s parts in terms of geometry, pixel density (resolution), and resource optimization to improve performance, while also bringing the parts up to date and making them look better and be more cohesive with each other. This release also marks the start of our plan to deliver substantial updates on a regular 3-month basis, so stay tuned for all upcoming KSP developments. Let’s go through some of this update’s highlights: New Suits Both the recruit and veteran classic EVA and IVA Space Suits have been given a well-deserved overhaul. We knew that such an iconic element of the game needed to stay true to its identity, so we are keeping its style, while also giving it a sleeker look. Revamped Parts Many parts have been given a fresh new look in an effort to have a more cohesive parts catalog. While staying true to the game’s original essence, the geometry and texture maps of these parts were completely redone. Some of these parts also include new texture variants for you to choose at will, and others a new shader that makes their metallic bits interact better with light. Improved Burn Time information We improved the burn time indicator by recalculating based on dV and not acceleration. Additionally, we’ve added a staging indicator that shows which stages contain the dV needed to complete each part of the maneuver. Go to the advanced settings to turn on this exciting new feature. ... Update 1.5 has also a few improvements exclusive to the Making History Expansion: The Part Count Node This node makes a comparison between the state of a vessel in two separate moments and by defining the number of parts itself; with it you’ll be able to test whether a vessel has or hasn’t lost parts (destroyed or decoupled) during any point on a mission. Underwater Fly Through Nodes With Dressed for Success you’ll be able to place Fly Through Nodes underwater, expanding mission creation possibilities. To learn more you can read the full Changelog here: =================================== v1.5.0 ============================================================ 1.5 Changelog - BaseGame ONLY (see below for MH changelog) +++ Improvements *Optimized the game for 4K resolution and increased the UI scale to 200% * Added higher impact tolerance to retracted solar panels. * Deployable parts now use separate value for their impact resistance when retracted. * Implemented a new version of the kerbal suits for the base game.
