  1. Hello everyone! Put on your seatbelts, Kerbal Space Program 1.6: To Vee or not To Vee is here, and with it moar explosions and fun! With our 3rd major update this year, we are thrilled to continue with our goal of advancing KSP and improving our players’ game experience by delivering substantial releases. To Vee or not To Vee is filled with new features, beautiful revamps, a number of navigation tools, and a whole lot of bug fixes. We’ve also done some tuning work that includes stock craft improvements and the rebalancing and fine tuning of a number of Making History parts, particularly the engines. From the very beginning KSP has been shaped by the amazing community around it and we hope that To Vee or not To Vee serves as a testament to our appreciation of our players and our commitment to continue supporting, updating and improving our game. Let’s go through some of this update’s highlights: Delta-v per Stage and Delta-v Tool App Plan missions better and find flaws in your ship staging setup with this long requested feature that will let you visualize the Delta-v values along with a range of other technical data for each stage and the vessel overall. Plus, a Delta-v App that will allow you to see a vessels Delta-v information while you’re building it in different situations. No Kerbal will be left stranded now… or so we hope. Part revamps To Vee or not to Vee includes 20 fully revamped parts that have been optimized, re-shaped and re-textured, plus more than 40 color variants to make your craft look sleek and beautiful! Navigation Icons to Launch Sites A quality of life feature that will help stray pilots find their way back to any Launch Site or Runway. From the Map View players will now be able to activate navigation waypoints to get direction towards the KSC or any other launch sites. Helmets Off! You can now remove Kerbals’ Helmets, as well as their neck rings! But be careful, there is a reason why Astronauts wear Helmets for space travel… Click here to see an animated gif showcasing this feature. And much more!

  2. We know everybody likes to start a new thread with his/her own excited opinion on announcements like this. But when each person starts his/her own feedback thread, forum traffic gets hectic and there tends to be a great deal of discussion repeated and scattered among mutliple threads. So for the next few days we will be merging most opinions, discussions, and questions about this subject into this master thread. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
  3. 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. This includes IVA suits for recruits and veterans as well as EVA suits. * Revised the behaviour of asteroids within Kerbin's SOI and gave them better VFX. * Added a "What's New" dialog to the main menu, where you can quickly see the highlights of the release as well as the full change log.

  4. 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.
