  1. I just wrote a procedural galaxy generation app for Kopernicus. I am currently in the stage of expanding it to accommodate all the different major kinds of stars and a few minor ones. The program is functional and is currently being expanded. Full Imgur album here! My Co-Developer @seanth has largely taken over development. He's done awesome work already. You can thank him for the vast improvements TBG has received over the last few releases. And there is more to come! I'm still here though, and I've got plans Maximum recommended galaxy size: 200 stars.

  2. Hello everyone, Over the past months, we’ve undertaken a huge endeavor to bring Kerbal Space Program towards its next leap forward. KSP is by now a mature game with tons of content and an immense modding community, which has devised all kinds of tools and creative additions to the game, so making something new and exciting for our players was a challenge that we faced head-on. We wanted to do something that could enrich the Kerbal experience, offer value to players, bring exciting new content and allow more creativity - all while bringing countless more hours of enjoyment. And with the 1.2.2 release we had a game in an optimal state to tackle an idea that has been in discussion for a while. We are thrilled and proud to announce Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion. This content filled expansion to the base game will include Mission Builder and History Pack. Mission Builder is an exciting new feature that puts the process of creating and editing missions in your hands. We wanted to give you the tools to get the sense of being part of a space program’s Mission Design Division by tailoring your own missions and narratives in a friendly and intuitive interface. Once created, you will be able to easily share your missions with the wider community. But that is not all, Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion will include loads of additional content to enjoy. This includes History Pack, which are pre-made missions for you to play immediately. You will have the opportunity to re-live historical missions from humankind’s own space history, all with that unique Kerbal Space Program twist! The pack will include a new set of parts and a new astronaut suit for your brave heroes. Imagine walking in the boots of the astronauts who witnessed the majesty of outer space for the first time or landed on other celestial bodies as the first of their kind. Keeping up with Kerbal Space Program tradition, Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion will be highly customizable and moddable. Key Features: Simple interface: Using an intuitive drag and drop node interface, you can easily create new and exciting new missions for yourself or others to enjoy. Creators can also add constraints such as time, fuel and parts limits; as well as unexpected mission events. Recreating history: Included in Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion is the History Pack. Players will be able to experience the trials and tribulations of the early days of Space Exploration on missions inspired by real life historical events. New parts: Aside from mission creations tools, Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion will have additional parts such as new fuel tanks, adapters, decouplers, fairings and command pods… inspired by both American and Soviet space programs! Kerbal Personal Parachute: Your astronauts will now be safer in case of imminent disasters with all new personal parachutes. So next time Jeb is in trouble and all systems are failing, you can simply eject him and activate his parachute. Then, you just have to hope, there’s an atmosphere to slow him down... Challenge other players: A new addition to Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion will be the concept of scoring. At the end of a mission you will get a numerical score to compare with your friends and the community. Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion is still in development and will be released as a paid expansion. Pricing and availability details will be announced at a later date. It seems as though our announcement two weeks ago was met with some disappointment, but we were just holding onto the good stuff. We can’t wait to see what the community is going to be able to create with this new creative tool within Kerbal Space Program, now more than ever with an enriched and diverse community of people from all around the world, who can now enjoy KSP in their own language! Keep tuned to KSP Weekly to learn about the ongoing development and upcoming details. Happy launchings! -The KSP Development Team
  3. Hello everyone, We have very exciting news to share with the KSP community today: Take-Two Interactive has purchased Kerbal Space Program. The important thing to know is that this big news doesn’t change much for the KSP community. Squad and the current development team is still here and we’re hard at work on KSP and its future updates, but now we are fortunate enough to do so with the help of an experienced publisher like Take-Two, and we couldn’t be more excited and happy to see where our conjoint collaboration will take KSP forward. Right now, we’re still focused on the Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion and we’ll continue to keep you updated on our progress. And yes, we’re keeping our promise of free DLC for everyone who purchased KSP through April 2013! We’re continuing to work closely with Blitworks on the updated version of KSP for consoles, which will be available on the Xbox and PSN digital stores when it is complete. This will be a free update for anyone who already owns KSP on Xbox or PS4. We can’t wait for you to play what we’ve been working on in the coming months! This is a very exciting time for KSP and the Community, and we hope you’re as thrilled as we are. The team at Take-Two are big fans of KSP, who have been persistently knocking on our door trying to work with us for a long time. They share your passion for the game and we’re really eager to see what Squad and Take-Two can do together for Kerbal Space Program moving forward! Happy launchings! -The KSP Development Team
  4. When I have landed my ssto or any other craft I cant recover it or go to the space center and I am forced to kill ksp_x64 and restart the game. And my console keep saying this: PLZ HELP
  5. I need help! So far I have KSP 1.3 and I want to use CKAN but I have a mac If someone has a version of the CKAN.exe file then please send a link Also the same for the To boldly go mod !
  6. Hi Guys, I can't start KSP. The only thing I know is that the .cfg files are the problem. Loading stops everytime when it reaches a .cfg file. I'm playing KSP with these mods: PortalCoreBattery TextureReplacer RealSolarSystem master Kopernicus-1.3.0-4 Custom.Asteroids v1.3.1 ksp 1.1.0-1 KSC_Switcher-0.7 And this Textures: 2048 8192 4096 My System: Windows 7 Professional 64 bit CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) X4 880K Quad Core Processor 4.20GHz GPU: GTX 960 RAM: 4 GB (I know that's not much) And thats it. Thank you for your help.

  8. Hello, I am having issues with some mods that shouldn't conflict with each other and yet some mods are not working properly. I have tried countless times to assemble a certain number of mods together and in one case it did work but ksp updated and now it's not working again. I understand that reproducing some mod content requires special permission from the mod creator, and I cant ask for a download, possibly an email would not violate their terms. I have the mod list below. If anyone can help thanks, BTW I just want a single gamedata folder.

  9. Hello everyone, The public pre-release of the localization pack is here! It has been a massive undertaking to localize Kerbal Space Program in four more languages: Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Russian and Spanish. Around 4,000,000 lines of code carefully revised to catalogue all the aspects that needed to be localized and addressed. More than 82,000 words translated. 456 images created for textures and UI. 684 slides prepared for the KSPedia. For the past few months more than 20 dedicated volunteers threw everything they’ve got at the game in order to help us catch any error and to ensure that the KSP humor and technical accuracy was kept intact. They did an incredible job and we can’t express enough gratitude for their help, but now we need more eyes to help us polish the final details of the localization effort to ensure a high quality experience to all KSP players around the world. This test build is open for everyone before we officially release the update (1.3). You’ll be able to opt-in via the Steam betas and through the KSP Store. Naturally, you’ll need to own a copy of the game beforehand in order to access these builds. A Pre-release project has been made available on the bug tracker to report errors and/or unlocalized texts. Additionally, to facilitate discussions of the Pre-release branch we’ll be opening up a temporary sub-forum for feedback, but while talking about and exploring bugs on the forum is welcomed, we highly encourage you to use the bug tracker to ensure the team gets all your feedback. For more details of what and how to report, click here. If you need help to get the pre-release builds on your language, check these download tutorials to start playing (the KSP Store tutorial will be made available tomorrow, March 17th). Steam video tutorials: English Español русский 日本の 中国 But that is not all, throughout the pre-release phase, two “additions” will be inserted to the builds: Ambient Light Adjustment: A Boost value to the ambient light setting that can brighten the render engine settings to bring light into the darkness. Asteroid Redirect Mod: The official mod will finally be merged to the base game to add that extra facet to contract gameplay without needing an extra download - including the SENTINEL Infrared Telescope. For more details and the full changelog, check out the Pre-release Chagelog. Got any additional questions? Don’t forget to read our FAQ, now in five languages! English Español русский 日本の 中国 We’re almost there and we couldn’t be more excited. Happy launchings!
  10. When does KSP release on Wii U? I hope its soon since my computer is too slow to run KSP but I have a Wii U.
  11. Have to go and rescue 2 orange suits from the surface of Eeloo, after a Kraken attack mid decent. Wanna see if I can do it? Two Orange suits stuck here.
  12. Saw this in KSP today (I don't know how to add imgur slideshows): Am modded, however I do not think mods caused this. Potential easter egg?
  13. Yo, lads! I'm Maland, a new dude on these here forums, but CERTAINLY not new to KSP! I've been playing KSP for quite some time. (Why I'm just joining the forums now is beyond me.) ...Anyways, I just wanted to share this video here, my 50 sub special! I made a rocket, and flew it to the Mun. And, I didn't die! (It did take a few takes, though.) Hope you enjoyed, and I'll see y'all around. Glad to be here.
  14. At first i was planning to make a mod that added interstellar travel, But the spanish inquisition stopped me and made me make this mod. Thanks to Thesonicgalaxy for his screenshot album. Ktolemy is the first and only mod in ksp that puts the whole solar system around kerbin, Tightly packing them together so as to make easy transit as if jool was a moon.

  15. Hello everyone! Kerbals hit a milestone, they are now interconnected and they can hear you Loud and Clear! Let your imagination fly with new possibilities, build communication networks, control vehicles remotely and explore every inch of the Kerbol System in ways that weren’t possible before with this new update! Kerbal Space program 1.2: Loud and Clear includes a broad range of improvements and features that will enrich the overall game experience, such as the introduction of CommNet and KerbNet, a rewrite of the Stability Assist System (SAS) that makes your launches more accurate and fuel efficient, an engine change from Unity 5.2 to 5.4, more tweakable options for many parts, a complete fuel system redesign, and much more! Here are some of the highlights for this update: Set up your own communications networks and have better control over your probes even when they cannot establish a direct connection. Link your probes back to Kerbin via an antenna to be completely autonomous and build relay networks for better science transmission! Use satellites for reconnaissance purposes, scan the terrain below you, find biomes and anomalies, and place custom waypoints with a targeting interface. The Fuelflow system has been rewritten and now you have total control over how the fuel flows through your vessels! The stability of Wheels has been greatly improved. Your rovers, wheeled vehicles will now turn and handle smoothly, making the overall driving experience more pleasant. Aircraft are also more stable, and all wheels have realistic load limits. Kerbal Space Program 1.2: Loud and Clear is now available on the KSP Store, Steam and will soon be available on GOG and other third party resellers. This update will eventually be released for consoles, too. For the time being it is only available on PC. Changelog: =================================== v1.2.0 ============================================================ +++Unity 5.4 * Engine change from 5.2 to 5.4.0p4 +++Libraries and Packages * Implemented Text Mesh Pro, which basically vectorizes all of our fonts, making them look much better, especially at larger font sizes. Also has a lot of extra utility that we can leverage for various effects. * Upgraded Vectrosity to latest version. * Upgraded Vehicle Physics Pro to latest version. +++Code cleanup * Heavily reduced garbage generation caused by foreach loops, Linq usage, and various other things. * Made sure that all of our singleton classes properly clean themselves up. * Optimized KerbalEVA. * Rewrote CrewManifest and related crew handling (roster, vessel crew list, etc). * Optimized PartModules. * Optimize latitude/longitude/altitude calls to often use a combined get-all method. * Fix how some enumerator interfaces are declared in classes. * Optimized waypoint site name generation to generate a lot less garbage with its string lists. * Many part modules now cache parts instead of polling the entire vessel multiple times per frame. * Revised how most forces and torques are applied (see note on this subject below in Moddability). * Added DoubleCurve * ScenarioModules now awake and load during game load and so are valid in modules' OnStart. * Considerable work to Krakensbane and FloatingOrigin to improve precision and performance and lower garbage. * Various ISRU fixes and performance improvements. * Default KSPEvents and KSPActions to being nonpersistent in terms of state. This means all their fields won't be serialized/deserialized to and from the save game files. * Now always use g0 = 9.80665 and G (big G) = 6.67408e-11 for gravitational constants. +++Flow Overhaul * Rewrote resource flow entirely. Now just four flow modes. Can set per-tank priority for all but AllVessel and NoFlow. Surface crossfeed for rocket engines as well as jets. Fixed priority issues. Much faster. PartResources no longer MonoBehaviours. Can set crossfeed per attach node. Electric Charge now uses STAGE_PRI so can be prioritized. Resource transfer in flight can be set to require valid crossfeed for those resources which obey crossfeed. With Advanced Tweakables on, can see flow graph in VAB/SPH (right-click on a part). +++SAS * Fixed SAS unlocking for all ships in physics range when maneuvering the ship in focus. * The code for the older “Stability Assist” and somewhat newer “Pilot Steering” modes has been unified. * SAS now dynamically adjusts for the vessel’s mass properties and available control authority. * SAS uses a “stability decay” method to reduce oscillations (or twitching) when very near the target orientation. * Pilot Steering modes now include a “coast” and “stop” mode when transitioning between steering points. +++Wheels * WheelColliders are now properly handled by collision manager, and no longer require the wheel "blocking" workaround to clip into other parts. * Fix hill "sticking" force overcompensating, resulting in a not so slow drift uphill when parked on one with wheels or legs. * Wheel deployment modules now search along the animation timeline upon retraction for the time closest to where the wheel suspension is located, instead of starting from 100%. This fixes the hop when retracting landing legs. * Added tweakable that allows player to specify whether his wheels deploy while shielded in a cargo bay. * Fix landing legs being exported to the wrong collision layer. * Wheel gravity is now properly handled in a standard manner, which should fix a good deal of instability. * Fix EVA kerbals blowing up wheels on contact. They now go through them. * Fixed landing legs teleporting from a semi-deployed state to a semi-retracted state when retracted. * Wheel damage does not process damage for two seconds after a vessel loads, prevents spontaneous explosions. * Suspension colliders are no longer disabled for 0.5 seconds upon retract, causing them to fall through the ground momenarily, blowing up your engines. * Deployable landing gear and legs now have deployment sounds. +++Communications Networks * Additional functionality and gameplay components to the Antenna and Probe parts through a series of distinct but related mechanics. When CommNet is enabled, probes will require a connection back to Kerbin or to a control point to have full control, and crewed vessels lacking pilots will have slightly limited control without such a connection. Relays can extend the range of such connections and bounce signals around planets and moons that would otherwise occlude. Science transmission receives a bonus for high signal strength. New antenna parts allow building complex networks, which can be visualized in map view. See KSPedia for more details. +++KerbNet * Added KerbNet, which allows the player to see terrain under their satellite, and place custom waypoints with a targeting interface. Allows the player to see biomes and anomalies at higher levels. Scan field of view for KerbNet varies by part and smoothly changes between surface altitude and orbital altitude. * KerbNet allows all probes and labs manned by a scientist to map as long as they have a communications network connection that eventually bounces to Kerbin. * Gave KerbNet visibility modes to hide some of the interface around the map. * Gave KerbNet auto-refresh settings to allow it to refresh without player intervention. * Gave KerbNet enhanced mode, which activates on some vessels such as rovers to give them better sensors in certain situations. * Add game option that allows KerbNet to either orient to the orbit normal, preventing flipping when passing over the poles, or to orient to north, which is less disorienting for some players. * Many aspects of KerbNet given flavor and fluff. Scanning a sun results in yellow and white noise, scanning a gas giant is similar except hued based on that planet. Stars and scan static can appear in the background past the horizon of a scan. * Resources can specify a scientific abbreviation. Utilized in KerbNet for the mode icon. +++Debug Window * Completely overhauled the debug window to utilize new Unity GUI. * New debug console has syntax highlighting that highlights classes with persistent pastel colors if they bracket their names. [Bracket] your class names in debug logs modders. * New debug console has command input support which is moddable, type /help for a full listing of commands, and what they do. * Added new debug screen for creating kerbals with specific names, genders, skills, levels, and classes. * Debug options for displaying errors/exceptions as screen messages. * Added set orbit debug cheat screen. * Added rendezvous controls to set orbit debug cheat screen. +++Orbits * All anomalies (ObT, mean anomaly, eccentric anomaly, true anomaly) are now consistently negative when approaching the periapsis for both elliptical and hyperbolic trajectories (previously, only hyperbolic trajectories used negative anomalies). This means that eccentric anomaly and true anomaly are now in the range -pi..pi instead of 0..2pi for elliptical trajectories. * Reference frames instead of quaternions are used for calculating orbital position and velocity, leading to increased speed when rendering patched conics. * Improved precision in orbit calculations. * Rewrote orbit targeting / closest approach finding. * Fixed issues where objects jump when going on and off rails. * Fix target orientation markers when the target is on rails. * Refactored such that orbital position and velocity and vessel position and velocity are correct for the FixedUpdate cycle. * Made target relative velocity work for celestial bodies. * Trajectories that re-encounter a body just escaped are now detected. * Trajectories that encounter two bodies now correctly show the first encounter even if it is further out (eg, Mun stealing a Minmus encounter). * Elliptical encounter trajectories no longer flicker. * Conic patch settings (draw mode and limit) are now exposed in the Video Settings. * Added game option for legacy orbit targeting. * Map node labels space themselves out nicely when cluttered. * Targeting info for moons in other SoIs now works. +++Contracts * Contracts are now also weighted by celestial body, so if the player starts declining contracts to Jool, they will see them less often. * Contracts now keep track of if they have been viewed. There are three states: unseen, seen but not clicked, and clicked and read. * Contract weighting now applies negative weight if a contract has been viewed when it expires. * Exploration contracts now always appear in Mission Control if there is not one currently available. * Explore contracts overhauled, they now utilize the same logic World Firsts used to use to select a "package" of related objectives. They can appear multiple times per planet now, and should have a much more logical progression than they used to. * Exploration contract progression slowed slightly, now requires science on a planet before allowing a fly by of the next one. Also, in the early game, return from orbit and return from fly by are required before advancing on the Muns of the homeworld. * Removed old single objective World First contracts, other than the initial four. * Waypoint captions for survey contracts now state the altitude band of each waypoint. * Fix contract orbits not cleaning up properly when their contracts are cancelled as opposed to completed. * Grand tour contracts now require a new vessel to complete, so they cannot be cheesed by keeping one around that has seen every planet. * Fix contextual surveys not properly bouncing the navigation waypoint. * Asteroid recovery objective reworded and given a note for clarity. * Asteroid side objectives in facility construction contracts will now not appear unless the same requirements for asteroid recovery contracts to appear are met. * Crew transfer progress tracking objective reworded to make it clear that it does not need to utilize existing crew. * Reworded objective to hold above a waypoint in stationary orbit contracts for clarity. * If Kerbal G limits are enabled, tourists can either require going unconscious or require not going unconscious during the trip. Check the parameter details! * Adjusted Exploration contract flavor text to work better in multi-objective scenarios. +++Biomes * Biomes for many bodies have been redesigned for clarity, beauty, and utility. And we've hidden a few extra surprises around as well! +++Easter Eggs * Added hidden fun stuff to almost every planet. * Mohole given an empty PQSCity, which allows it to appear in KerbNet. * Gave many easter eggs colliders. * Fix Duna's SSTV not playing. * Unburied Duna's MSL. +++Other Work * Advanced Tweakables option in Gameplay Settings. With it off, some advanced features are hidden. Defaults off. * Autostrutting available for all parts (AT). * Autostruts can be gated behind a technology in career and science mode defined in Physics.cfg, by default it is the same technology regular struts are on. * Add grandparent mode to auto-struts. * Parachutes can have automatic holding of deployment until safe (AT). * Actuation toggles now affect symmetry counterparts in editor (some other RCS/gimbal bits do too). Also hidden under Advanced Tweakables (AT). * Utilize HSV color space in more locations. * Quadrupled the amount of loading screen messages. You know, the important stuff. * Loads of new options in the difficulty settings. * Science data can be transferred by the part-part transfer mechanic (for certain probe cores). * Added physics easing for when landed/splashed vessels come off rails. * Certain probe cores (and the new science container part) can transfer data with no EVA required. * There is an additional drag curve whose function is to raise drag coefficient to a power based on the mach number. This leads to blunter things having (relatively) more drag supersonic than they did and pointier things having (relatively) less than they did. Pods will slow down better on steep reentries and planes will produce drag in better proportion to how streamlined they are (less overpowered airplane drag). * Fairings now include support for placing multiple payloads in them (and showing trusses for said payloads). * Tourist contracts work better with the Kerbal Gee Tolerance option. * Add a small negative contract weight for contracts that are read but not accepted. * Existing resource narrow band scanner ported to KerbNet interface, allowing it to zoom, among other things. * Removed biome readout information and flag rendering on narrow band scanner. * Added ellipsis to many text labels and fields, to prevent overflow while looking nice. * Input keys in the settings screen automatically expand with screen resolution. * Default parachute deployment mode set to "when safe" - players everywhere rejoice. * All tooltips cooked to a nice golden color. * Added Viewmatic Survey Satellite stock relay craft. * Added /b4d455 command, which starts a game off with basically everything. * Background ambiance in the space center scene now fades smoothly between birds by day and crickets by night. * Background ambiance in the space center scene now fades out when at max time warp. * Background ambiance in general no longer always starts at zero, it randomly seeks when the scene loads. Hence, loading a game no longer immediately plays the exact same bird trill. * Most stock planes given a look over based on player feedback. * Added editor part categories for ground, electrical, communication, thermal, payload, and coupling parts. * Screen message text given much higher visibility. * Facilities in the space center now have verbose context menus in sandbox mode, allowing you to see their upgrades. They always show the maximum level of upgrades. * "Require Complete" on antennae is now persistent and its state is saved. * Added community contest winner kerbal and unique waypoint names. * Camera can now be pointed at parts, not just vessel center of mass. * Added Plane and Relay vessel types/icons. * Airbrakes now have deployment limits. * Rebalance fairing panel mass downwards slightly. * Difficulty options for limiting part pressure and G-force tolerance. * Difficulty option for kerbal G-force tolerance. Kerbals go unconscious if their tolerance is exceeded. * Slight performance tweaks to some early 1.25m engines. * Swap around some early science parts in the tech tree. * Redid Eve's atmospheric pressure curve to smooth it out and remove errors. Eve's atmosphere thins out much faster now, so the high atmosphere is thinner. Also tweaked Jool's atmosphere so it rapidly goes from 15 atmospheres to 50 in the last few kilometers to achieve crushing pressures. * Can right-click on icons in the staging list to trigger the Part Action Window. * Support Rigid Attachment (non-bendy) option for part joints in cfg and in the PAW. * Added an "Action Groups Always Allowed" advanced difficulty option. * Add 0.625m heat shield. * Lift from capsules and heat shields better handled to make lifting reentries better (easier). * Restructured in-flight pause menu to better show all options. * Don't lock all controls when using Warp To, only some. * Fix terrain vanishing at 1000m depth. * Allow targeting of close vessels by double-clicking. * Angle the canopies of parachutes in symmetry away from each other. * Resource transfer rate when transferring between parts now based on ingame time (taking warp into account) not realtime. * Fix issues with TR-2L stats. * Show tooltips on kerbal portraits. * Fix scientist skill text. * Fix issue with ladders not being re-grab-able if you board a seat, retract a ladder, leave the seat, then extend the ladder. * Update maneuver node patches (for targeting) when the vessel target changes. * The runway lights now follow the day/night cycle. * Moved a low tech wheel to a lower tech tier. * Moved an atmospheric sensor down to the science tech branch. +++Misc Fixes and Changes * Fixed issue where disabled RCS would enable during staging. Mods need to set stagingEnabled=False in their ModuleRCS blocks (unless they want staging on). * Catch exceptions during part loading so the loading process doesn't come to a halt. * Fix some issues with decouple modules, allow specifying the ejection force vector. * Try/catch the other PartModule update loops so one bad module doesn't interrupt others. * Don't try to set constant KSPFields. * Null check when getting resource mass on unloaded vessels with removed resources. * Remove some debug spam when querying Science Subjects by ID. * Fix Resource Display to show all resources correctly. * Improve launch clamp stability on revert. * Fix an issue with ModuleTripLogger not applying to kerbals in non-root parts. * Ablative shields with Ablator tweaked down in the VAB no longer show up pre-scorched in flight. * Ablative shields no longer show solid black when reaching zero ablator. * Fix serious regression with flow multipliers in ModuleEnginesFX. * Fix a wrong rotation in Moment of Intertia calculations. * Correct stock temperature gauges to use gauge threshold. * Fixed currency symbols not displaying properly when UI scale is changed by using inline Text Mesh Pro sprites. * Probe cores now have a hibernate feature which offers only partial control when activated but draws much less electricity. Can be set to automatically hibernate in warp (advanced tweakable). * Added a game setting for default throttle (rather than keeping it in Physics.cfg). * Fix bug where space center view can be messed up on loading a save from the main menu if the game was switched away from during load (old workaround was clear the input locks). * Renamed Science Tech to Scanning Tech since that's what it's for. * Fixed where CoPOffset and CoLOffset had CoMOffset added to them during application. * Fixed where an exception during loading of parts would stop the game loading. * IVA navball works like normal navball (vectors hidden when velocity is too small, radial and normal cues show only in Orbit mode). * Fix an issue where prop requirement met (on engine menus) was not being intuitively correct. See note in Moddability, below, for how to update jet parts. * Fix kerbals sliding on ladders. * For EVA kerbals, 'SAS' light shows whether the kerbal will reorient when a translate key is pressed (as set in Input Settings). T toggles this behavior when in EVA mode. * Several dialogs (such as quicksave) now accept Escape and Enter keys for dismissing or accepting contents.

(onVesselPartCountChanged, onVesselModified, docked, undocked, et al) * Added onScreenResolutionModified event, fires when the screen resolution is modified. * Added many accessors/setters. * Vessel control level can be clamped to a field in Vessel (so can be restricted to Partial even if otherwise would be Full). * GetModuleMass/Cost methods can now be passed the situation. * Fix where kerbal mass (if set to nonzero) was not applied in the editor. * Added two new dictionary-related classes (DictionaryValueList and ListDictionary). * Celestial bodies now cache all of their PQS Cities. * All game root nodes now generate a random persistent seed, which is different from game to game. * All forces on valid parts except wheel forces are now done via Part.AddForce/Torque/AddForceAtPosition. Note that the forcemode used is Force; to use a different forcemode, convert the force to the correct amount. It is the job of the Flight Integrator to then apply all these forces to actual rigidbodies (rather than all the disparate modules' job). * Use mass-weighted average angular velocity of parts for vessel angular velocity. * ITorqueProvider now reports two Vector3s, positive torque (that produced by control actuation 1,1,1) and negative torque (that produced by -1,-1,-1). * Added various accessors. * Node definitions can take an extra digit after size, either 0 or 1: that sets whether the node can crossfeed. Defaults to 1 (yes). NODE definitions can take crossfeed = True/False * ModuleEngines now supports `clampPropReceived = True`. This will clamp the ratio of propellant requested based on prior results, so if IntakeAir is listed first and less than the full requirement is returned, it will request only that ratio of further propellants. In this case the "Prop Req Met" display will show the minimum requirement-met ratio rather than the average. Engines that use IntakeAir (or other cases like that) need to have `clampPropReceived = True` in each of their MODULEs that do that, and need to have that PROPELLANT first and the other PROPELLANTs later. See stock jet cfgs for examples. * Added another crew transfer event. * Added more startup options for KSPAddon * Allow kerbals to have/save/load arbitrary experience points. * ResearchAndDevelopment.GetTechnologyTitle(string id) will convert a tech ID to a tech title and is available as soon as parts start loading (can be used in GetInfo() ). * Support max pressure (dynamic + static), `maxPressure`, and max G, `gTolerance`, for parts. * Added system to allow mods to add custom difficulty settings. * Added CelestialBody.hasSurface so mods that add a PQSController to gas giant don't cause silly things such as "Plant a flag on Jool" contracts. * Replaced all checks for experience traits (Pilot, Scientist, Engineer) with individual experience effects. They are now loaded before part loading so can be queried in GetInfo(). * Icons in TechTree.cfg can now use a relative path (allows mod icons to live outside the Squad directory). * Added KSPAssemblyDependencyEqualMajor as an attribute. Use instead of KSPAssemblyDependency if you want to force requiring the stated major version, not >= the major version, from your dependency. * If you are setting a vessel's position and/or changing its orbit, call Vessel.IgnoreGForces(framecount) on the vessel for the number of frames that g forces should be ignored (try 1, then 2 if that doesn't work, etc). * ModuleDeployablePart (covers antennas, solars, radiators) also has a gResistance (for Gs) as well as windResistance (for Q). * Crew transfer now derives from a generic abstract PartItemTransfer class. Classes can derive from it to implement any kind of (crew transfer-style) part-part transfer. Also we fire an event right before a crew transfer is created so mods can just kill it and easily create their own CrewTransfer-derived class and have that be called on that event. * Extended ModuleScienceContainer to allow sending and, (from ModuleScienceExperiment) receiving, experiment data. Also added support for a Collect All option to such containers. * ModuleColorChanger supports changing arbitrary shader colors and implements IScalarModule. ModuleAnimationSetter works similarly and is used to more directly link an animation to being set by IScalarModule. * PartModules now support upgrades. In a MODULE node, add an UPGRADE node. Inside that add one node per techID you wish to provide upgrades, in ascending order. Inside that place keys and nodes you wish to upgrade. e.g. `UPGRADES { basicRocketry { maxThrust = 250 } }` will change maxThrust to 250 once basicRocketry unlocks. Upgrades will never override persistent data. Further, by default they overwrite each other; to make a node apply on a clean slate (so you can, say, add two PROPELLANT nodes and not have them conflict due to the overwrite logic) set `IsExclusiveUpgrade__ = True` in the upgrade's node. That will clear the upgrade state and apply that upgrade fresh. Upgrades are applied only when you add a part to a craft in the VAB/SPH, they don't magically apply in flight. When a part on a craft is upgraded, a new option will appear in the PAW (when in VAB/SPH) where you can view the current stats of all those modules with upgrades. * ModuleEngines now supports alternate (RealFuels-style) throttling and rates. * ModuleEngines now supports throttle-Isp interactions. Turn on with useThrottleIspCurve = True and set the throttleIspCurve and throttleIspCurveAtmStrength curves. Final Isp = input Isp * Lerp(1, throttleIspCurve.Eval(throttle state), throttleIspCurveAtmStrength.Eval(atms of pressure)) * Support part upgrades, see docs. * Added events dealing with kerbals going on/off ladders on parts and added a new vessel field for accessing the vessel of the part of the ladder the kerbal is climbing (if all of those are valid). * CelestialBody now has thermo/atmo stats methods so FlightIntegrator's temperature calcs can be called from anywhere / any mod. * Events that throw an exception now print the full stack trace. * PartModuleUtil.PrintResourceSI() is now just KSPUtil.PrintSI(). * Add ModuleDragAreaModifier with field areaFactor. Note: this will also affect buoyancy and thermo. * Added ModuleHeatEffects and FXModuleThrottleEffects which can take any number of IScalarModules and are set by skin temp and throttle respectively. * AvailablePart.entryCost is now get-only and calls a static delegate so they can be * FindEngineNearby and FindEngineInterface are now PartModuleList methods instead of being duplicates in FXModuleAnimateThrottle and ModuleAlternator. * Many KerbalEVA, Kerbal, and KerbalExpressionSystem methods made virtual, and kerbal spawning in ProtoCrewMember and EVA spawning in FlightEVA made delegates. * Added IContractObjectiveModule, which allows mods to specify valid parts for contract objectives, rather than it being configuration based. * Waypoint captions on the map are now moddable. * Added game events for CommNet status changes both for the connection in general and the connection to KSC. * Added game event that fires when PQS starts, just before the sphere is started. * Added game event that fires when PQSCities start. * Added game event for orbital resource survey completion. * Added game event for vessel control state changing. * Orbit now has a constructor that clones another orbit. * Vessel now has a method to kill all parts in permanent ground contact (eg: launch clamps). * Added ModuleGenerator.isGroundFixture for launch clamps. * The "escape" progress milestone now uses standard World First award methods, which allows it to be disabled by mods properly. * Icon_Hidden tag now hides all children of the transform so tagged. * Add requiresFullControl to events, actions, and UI controls. If false, will work normally in full and partial control and refuse to work only with no control. If true, will work only with full control. * AssemblyLoader ignores abstract classes. * Support symbols in the font. * Made Kerbals and EVA kerbals more moddable. EVAs and the flag now have partial part cfgs which can be modded. All Kerbal and KerbalEVA methods are virtual and the FSM is opened up. New hooks added. * Made vessel load/unload/pack/unpack ranges changeable in Physics.cfg. * Support adding options to the game difficulty screen. * Vessel now has radarAltitude. Use it for min(altitude, heightFromTerrain) * add PartModule.OnIconCreate which runs just before the partmodule is stripped from the icon gameobject when the editor part icon is being created. * Particle systems can be registered with FloatingOrigin for handling origin/krakensbane offsetting natively. * ProtoPartResourceSnapshot no longer relies on strings, and its resourceValues node is now inaccessible. Instead, directly get / set the amount/maxAmount/flowState. * PartModules now come with a resHandler object (of type ModuleResourceHandler) for handling ModuleResource / RESOURCE nodes, so code need not be duplicated. * When a landed vessel goes off rails and is detected to be landed on parts, not the ground, it is offset up slightly, controlled by one static Vessel field HeightFromPartOffsetGlobal (default 0.5 meters) and one instance field heightFromPartOffsetLocal (default 0 meters). The vessel is offset upwards the sum of those two fields. * Fix OnVesselSwitching always sending a null reference, add OnVesselSwitchingUnloaded. * Allow reference to Kerbal's animator cache and renderer cache. * Add map toggle interface for mods. * OrbitTargeter opened up, delegate added for creating the on-click context menus so they can be modded. * Add delegates so KB apps can be modded. * Add currency-agnostic CanAfford method. * Add many more options to ModuleLiftingSurface and for customizing body lift. * ModuleAnimateGeneric now supports defaultActionGroup. * ConfigNode now formats float and double values such that no data is lost. * ConfigNode AddValue/SetValue now support most types. * Flag decals in IVAs (InternalFlagDecal module) * Add Crew counts to Vessels
  16. So my brother claims he built the Dynawing Space Shuttle from Kerbal Space Program. Dispite my best efforts, he still promised he built the craft. Can someone please give me evidence that he never built it I'm begging you!!!
  17. I've been experiencing some problem with the landing legs, not landing gear sorry. The problem is, when i turn the landing leg it goes inward and turns slightly and i just can't seem to get it to go outward into the landing position i guess. Although i have installed mods which include... TAC Life Support, Tweakscale (just installed today) and... actually that's pretty much it.
  18. So... i want to build a Minimus base so i decided to draw the base plan in MS Paint but i don't know how i would get the parts to dock i was thinking of using a rover but i'm not sure if it could lift the cabins and the science bay.
  19. Ok so i got a pretty hard challenge you need to first go to moho and then to elloo ! Easy:Go to moho and Elloo Medium: Go to Elloo and Moho whitout mining or refueling Hard: Go to Elloo and Moho whit the same lander !! OMG : Impress me !!!!
  20. now ive never made a mod but im making models now and i want to see if anyone likes them! i will post pics when i finish or half of the models plz let me know if you like them or not Jwsavage,
  21. Here's what I got so far on my KSP series! It's not too special, but I'm trying to get discovered, and see what people like and suggest, so feel free to leave feedback! The quality greatly increases in the third episode, as I have completely changed directions with the series!
  22. Hello! I been in the forums for quite some time but have not yet registered here officially, hoping to comment on a bunch of expl-... *cough cough* I mean't ships.... Also thinking of creating a mod for KSP, any advice is appriciated, *C++ programmer* *amateur 3d designer*
