  2. Final Frontier kerbal individual merits current version: 1.5.0-3380 Sometimes it's hard to choose a kerbal for a mission because they are all the same... well, they differ in courage and stupidity but they have no history, no personal merits they have achieved. Do you remember who was the first kerbal in space? No? Ok, who was the first kerbal on Mun? Still no idea? The Final Frontier plugin will handle this for you. Each kerbal will get ribbons for extraordinary merits. And the number of missions flown (i.e. vessel recovered), total mission time and total EVA time is recorded, too. Download: Spacedock Spacedock direct link for KSP 1.1.3 Mirror: Curse For modders: Version 0.8.12 and later includes an api to reward ribbons from an external plugin. You will find an adapter class and an example here: FinalFrontierAdapter Planet Packs (for use in 0.6.0 or later): PFCE: Download Kerbol Expanded: Download (WIP, last update 02.01.2015) Ribbon Packs (for use in 0.9.1 or later): RANKS and MILITARY RANKS FOR KERBALS (Base ID 1000) by Araym Expedition/Rank Ribbon Packs (Base ID 8000) bySmarterThanMe Armed Forces Ranks (Base ID 3000) by Shadriss If you want to create your own ribbon pack feel free to do so. But you should use IDs other than in the ribbon packs above. Just set the BASE in the config file to some other number and keep in mind that every ribbon must get an unique ID. (Screenshot of my development copy and not from a real game) To open the Final Frontier Hall of Fame window just click on the button labeled "FF" in the toolbar or press LEFTALT-F (hardcoded at the moment, so it's not assignable to another key). If you are using the stock toolbar you will find some kind of award icon. To browse all available ribbons just press the "Ribbons" button on the right of the hall of fame. Currently the following ribbons are awarded to kerbals: Orbit around a celestial body (including Kerbin) Landing on a celestial body (including Kerbin – kerbals do reward even simple tasks, because most of the time they fail...) EVA in around a celestial body without a stable orbit (including Kerbin) EVA in an orbit around a celestial body (including Kerbin) EVA on a celestial body (including Kerbin – let's hope they will survive...) Docking around a celestial body (including Kerbin) Collision in a vessel Dangerous EVA while not on ground and not in a stable orbit Get into a Kerbin orbit in less than 200, 150 or 120 seconds Accumulated mission time of at least 5, 20, 50, 100, 500, 2000 or 5000 days (20, 80, 200, 400, 2000 or 20000 kerbin days) A return from single mission that lasted for at least 20, 50, 125, 500 oe 2000 days (80, 200, 500, 2000, or 8000 kerbin days) At least 5, 20 or 50 missions flown (i.e. vessel recovered) Done a splashdown landing First kerbal in space A ribbon for entering the sphere of influence of a celestial body (new in 0.2.2) Planting flags on celestial bodies Launching with solid fuel boosters of 10%, 20%, or 30% ship mass Achieved gee-force of 3, 4, 5, 6,..., 17 or 18 g Entering the deep athmosphere of Jool Orbiting the Sun at half or less the distance of Moho Moving a vehicle (hopefully a rover) on the surface of a celestial body Crew member of a heavy vehicle of at least 250, 500, 750, 1000, 1500, 2000 or 4000 tons Launching a heavy vehicle of at least 250, 500, 750, 1000, 1500, 2000 or 4000 (!) tons Landing a heavy vehicle of at least 250, 500, 750, 1000, 1500, 2000 or 4000 (puh!) tons Ribbons for 1h, 2h, 6h, 12h, 24h, 48h, 96h and 192h in EVA Ribbons for flying a vessel at Mach 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 15 below 20,000m in Kerbin atmosphere (0.4.1 and later) Ribbons for EVA Endurance, i.e. a single EVA of at least 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 90, 120, 180, 240 or 300 minutes. Ribbons for entering atmosphere of Eve, Duna, Jool,... A Ribbon for entering the sphere of influence of all celestial bodies (Grant Tour ribbon) A Ribbon for entering the sphere of influence of all moons of Jool (Jool Tour ribbon) Ribbons for completing contracts Ribbons achieving research (while in a mission) Ribbons for first completed mission as an engineer, pilot or scientist Ribbons for altitude, distance, speed and depth records A Ribbon for entering deep space beyond Eeloo (or whatever outermost planet may exist) Ribbons for landing in polar regions Ribbons for landing at high elevations on kerbin Ribbons for landing with less than 5% or 1% liquid fuel More than 500 ribbons in total! If a kerbal is the first one rewarded with a celestial ribbon, he will get the "First kerbal" ribbon of that kind (for example "First kerbal in orbit around Kerbin "). Some ribbons replace some others when earned. For example: The ribbon for EVA in an orbit around a celestial body replaces the ribbon for EVA around the same body without a stable orbit. The ribbon for 20 missions flown replaces the ribbon for 5 missions, etc. A tooltip gives a short description for each awarded ribbon. The ribbon graphics are inspired by the ribbons created by Unistrut (view this thread). But unfortunately I still do not have his permission to include his ribbon graphics into Final Frontier so I have created my own set of ribbons. They are using the same color and sometimes similar graphics (so they will look similar). If Unistrut will give his permission to use his ribbons, I will include them in a modified form with better graphics than mine. Some of the custom ribbons are created by SmarterThanMe and nothke and are used with their permission. Update: I finally got the permission to use the ribbons from Unistrut. But why is it called "Final Frontier"? Well, I'm quite surprised that nobody is asking, but I will try to explain it anyway. I was thinking about this plugin since the personal achievement mod by blizzy78. I liked the idea in general but in a sandbox game achievements for the player doesn't mean to much to me (but this is a personal opinion of course). Unfortunately I'm a Java/C++ programmer and C# is quite new for me, so time and missing skills/experience delayed the implementation until the first days of 2014. Then I decided to give it a try and created a small C# project for testing/learning the basics. The first decision to made was the name of the project. I do not exactly remember how I get the idea for the name, but I searched a bit in Youtube, Google and well, perhaps there was a replay of Star Trek in TV. I really don't know how I got the name, but I created a project "Final Frontier" and so it begun. And I don't like to change the name of a project afterwards without a specific reason. Installation: Important! Please read if you have trouble with Final Frontier. Just unzip the archive into the KSP folder. Don't move the FinalFrontier folder, it should be nested in the folder GameData/Nereid. If you are already using the toolbar you don't have to extract the toolbar folder. Do not change the installation path! Final Frontier must reside under GameData/Nereid Compatibility: Final Frontier should be compatible with most mods. There is one important exclusion from this rule: Mods that are changing names of celestial bodies or add new celestial bodies will cause trouble. All releases from 0.6.0 and later can handle the altering of celestial bodies. There is still one exclusion: All celestial bodies must have unique names. To get ribbons for new celestial bodies, you must install a planet pack (see above).

It works or at least I think it will work. But bugs may occur and don't try this plugin in a current game without a backup. And it its my first project in C#, so don't expect to much from the code . Kerbals are identified by their names. So don't add kerbals with the same name or Final Frontier will get confused. The plugin takes use of System.IO to store its data in the corresponding persistent.sfs of a game and its settings in GameData/FinalFrontier.dat. Release 0.8.x will do a scan for old save games in the saves folder and converts them upon permission by the user. There are no other write operations anywhere on the system. License: http://opensource.org/licenses/BSD-2-Clause Source is included in the zip archive. Final Frontier uses the toolbar created by blizzy78, see http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/threads/60863-0-23-0-Toolbar-1-4-3-Common-API-for-draggable-resizable-buttons-toolbar. If you don't like the toolbar or just want to use the stock toolbar for Final Frontier disable the use of blizzys toolbar in the configuration dialog of Final Frontier. Bugs: Ike and dres ribbons are the same. (fixed in 0.4.20) Decoupling in orbit, leaving orbit and immediatly returning into orbit give Fast Orbit Ribbon (fixed in 0.5.4) A splashdown landing in water give Mach 10 Ribbon (fixed in 0.5.4) Typo" Grant Tour" instead of "Grand Tour" (fixed in 0.5.4) SOI ribbons (and maybe others too) are not awarded when in time acceleration (fixed in 0.5.6) Gee force ribbons don't work as intended if crew is changed in flight (still suspicious) Closer solar orbit ribbons don't work (fixed in 0.6.0) quickload may cause loss of ribbons (fixed in 0.6.3) Ribbons may get lost, after installing new mods (fixed in 0.8.1-1282) Kerbals may get cloned (fixed in 0.8.3-1361) mission summary incorrect in some cases (fixed in 0.9.6-1826)
  3. Pictures and information coming soon. This is my first C# plugin for KSP, so progress has been pretty slow. What works so far: Button that orients kerbal based on acceleration Animations Very buggy and difficult to use movement Todo (Before release): Create a partmodule for kerbals so munwalk options can be enabled and disabled via rightclick menu. Eventually create a side-bar menu. (Might actually happen post-release) Add "airplane mode" (Disable drag when close close to and/or inside airplanes. Find better buttons to for turning left and right. Make sure current toggle button doesn't cause problems with anything in vanilla ksp 10/3/18 Update I've entirely overhauled the code to not be such a mess, experimented with applying the "walk" force at the kerbal's feet (still working on that), and have now averaged acceleration across five calculation frames (every other frame calculates acceleration, so forces aren't applied at the same time acceleration is calculated). 10/9/18 Update Animation-based movement proved to be futile; for whatever reason I could not get the foot colliders as I'd hoped. Fortunately, with a bit of tweaking moving by applying force to the kerbal seems to work perfectly fine! Aside from the fact that a kerbal can't walk backwards without tripping... Little bit of tweaking needed there. I've removed the debug acceleration arrow and will soon be looking into fixing it up for a public release!

    Improve and Help Advance The Space Program

    So I opened up a new space program yesterday. I came up with a good plan for advancements, and I have worked on upgrading the space program until it is fully functional and is publicly open for use. Place your newest addition to the space program please. (the next person down the line may continue) Added a basic VAB.
  7. Hello Guys, I’m new on the forum, and I have been in love with this Game since was released. You know is simply amazing. All you know that. and I know probably I’m asking the same stupid thing, but guys! This is a great Game, and I do not have an Xbox One, or a PS4, nor a PC. All that I Have is a: Nintendo Switch. so here we go again (I think): (I know all the technical Stuff and how difficult is to port it, I Know is a Heavy Software) but, Do you think there will be a Chance to Have KSP on the Switch? and if an admin is reading or someone of the staff, you know, you will have my Money ready for KSP on the Switch and you know very well that will not be only my Money.

    Starstuff - A K.S.S. Tale

    *Old Banner. Will be changed* Kerbal-kind has always been intrepid and willing to blaze trails. An incident stopped this behavior for a long, long while. However, with a little help, the Kerbals are ready to blaze a trail to the stars... This fan work is the first time I've ever written something that is not a short story. Feedback on my writing methods and other things are highly encouraged. Also, Starstuff will avoid spoilers for the upcoming KSS storyline. Do not fret. Thanks to the KSS Team and Supporters for inspiring me to do this. Check out the mod HERE! Prologue: This Post. Interlude 1: Clever Advertisements - HERE Interlude 2: Werhner Takes a Break - HERE Interlude 3: ABC, KGBFOAM - HERE Chapter 1: Spirits - Waiting on KSS 0.8 Chapter 2: Coming Soon... PROLOGUE
  10. Kerbal space program has been around for a while and there is still no official online multiplayer? Why? This feature is screaming to be added. For example an online sandbox mode where you can play with friends. Not only would this allow current players to enjoy this great game even more, it would generate the company more money. More people would be asking their friends to buy the game so that they can play online with them. So what is up with this?

    USI Systems - Visuals

    I just added the USI mod packs through CKAN and now when I launch vessels at the space center I am stuck seeing this gray fog, kinda like the ocean washed Instagram filter over my screen. It extends all over even in space, Please help it's not bad but very annoying. Thanks!

    Bad Kerbal Jokes

    The objective of this game is to make a worse joke about KSP than the person before. Rules: No posting twice in a row Your jokes have to be about KSP The jokes also (duh) have to fall within the community rules. I will go first. Q: What did Jeb say to Bill as they were plummeting to their deaths? A: Oh, chute.

    Kerbal Inventory System

    Ive been using Kerbal Inventory System for a while. I love that you can store parts and add them to spacecraft when needed. I want to add a docking node to my space station, but the volume of the node is 782.5L and Kerbals can only hold 250L. So when I transport this part to my station, how am I going to attach it if the kerbal can't hold it. Also is there a way to go into the mod files and change how much a Kerbal can hold?? Thanks

    Kerbaliser

    What happened to the old Kerbaliser thing? Is there any way to download it? If not, is there any other way that I can create a Kerbal, not using USI Kolonisation or similar things by having many different professions?

    [1.4.X] Colonists!

    Colonists! for 1.4.X Colonists! Introduces a new kind of Kerbals the (tadadadaaaa) colonist. (A mashup between Engineers and Scientists). The intention to create them was to have some kind of kerbal wich can be dropped off on a planet with a rover and do some science without mystery goo or materials bay getting useless after the first use and without them and their rover getting stuck because a wheel suddenly broke. Without coding it is just possible to decide wich abilities to copy from a kerbal and wich not. So the possibilities for me are limited. This is exactly what I took/left: Taken from Scientists: Ability to execute experiments in EVA and reset them. Difference to scientists: Scientists can process data in laboratories and provide a science bonus for recovered experiments/vessels. Taken from Engineers: Ability to repair stuff. Difference to Engineers: Engineers boost drilling/converting resources. Taken from Pilots: Ability to provide basic vessel control (activate stuff, steer, etc.) even without connection back to the KSC Difference to Pilots: Pilots provide SAS! Here is what he will learn in detail: Level 0 Reset experiments, Perform experiments in EVA, Full vessel Control Level 1 Repack parachutes Level 2 Repair lander legs Level 3 Repair wheels They will spwan like any other type of kerbal and you can recruit or rescue them. Here you see Jesvie and her description: Hope they come in handy for some of you! Published under MIT License, see source for details. Download (Spacedock): LINK Zip contains the "Colonists"-folder, just drop this in GameData Source (Github): LINK I do love it, but would appreciate some feedback. "Changelog": Deleted the pilot abilities because it was not possible to make the vessel uncontrollable if connection is lost. Without this drawback they would've been too overpowered! Added the "FullVesselControl" parameter to the colonists abilities. So no more pilot stuff but control of the vessel everywhere, hope that is more balanced!
  16. Kerbal Klinic 1.2.0 for KSP 1.4.1 This mod allows you to resurrect dead Kerbals instead of hiring a new Kerbal. It costs the same anmount of Funds as hiring a new Kerbal so you have no advantages. It is useful if you are playing Career and dont want to revert, but also don't want to loose the veteran Kerbals if something goes wrong. This is my first addon for KSP so I hope everything works and I did the licensing right. Features Resurrect Kerbals with the status K.I.A for Funds Resurrection costs as much as hiring a new Kerbal, but you can also set it to a custom value Pictures Download SpaceDock Github (with source code) Or get it though CKAN License The mod is licensed under the GNU General Public License.

    KSP Origin Book

    Dear fellow Kerbonauts! Let me present you a book (well, it's an E-book after all) what I wrote in the end of the end of the last year (2017), called It's actually a (more-or-less) simple story based on the Carrier mode of KSP from the first sounding rockets to the first Minmus landing. I discussed with @Darth Badie earlier, she agreed and supported me to do it. This book is completely free-of-charge, all credits to SQUAD. I'd like to ask you to read it, and if you like, leave me comments with your opinions, because sometimes in the future I'd like to write another KSP-themed book if the new EULA let me do it. Anyways, here is the link for the promo video I made for the book. The link of the book is in the description of the video. I hope you'll like it. Cheers!
  20. Hello. I just encountered a serious bug. I've made a small craft for the observation missions and, so that I won't waste too much money, decided to place some parachutes on it's first stage. After landing, I took Jeb out for EVA so I could get some science on Kerbin surface and while he was on the crew cabin ladder, I switched craft so I could check if the first stage was landing ok. After it did, I tried switching back but it said there were no crafts close enough, so I recovered the main stage and selected the crew cabin through the tracking station. After getting back on the craft, for my surprise, I noticed Jeb was nowhere to be found! So I recovered the craft itself and there was also no crew in the after-recovery screen, only parts and science. Jeb is also not in the Astronaut Building and my reputation went negative, leading me to believe he's now dead. I'm playing the career with some of the hardest settings on, forcing no quicksave/load and no crew respawn, but everything was going well so far. Losing a Kerbal in this stage of the career with these settings is game breaking. I also tried using the debug console (which should be used to fix something like this without forcing me to restart my whole career) but then it says the achievements will be disabled Why should I even have a debug tool then? I can see this problem may impact even more the game later on if I happen to have any Kerbals performing EVA while switching back to Kerbin or another craft. If I'm not mistaken, this bug (or a similar bug) has already been fixed on the PC, no? Update: I just checked the astronaut building again, and it says Jeb was K.I.A. Wish it would tell me what killed him though, that would provide more info on the bug (maybe he's been teleported and smashed, stretched or something else).
  21. Do you have unused blender models for KSP ? Here you can post all your works of art that you have given up on/don't have time to finish. Maybe someone else will make/integrate them into a great mod. ORIGINAL POST{outdated}
  22. Hi I have just bought the game. It is such that my game does not launch, and I do not know what to do to fix the problem. i have tried serveral difrent things such as validating the game, and updated my nvidia Driver, but nothing seem to work. Please someone help me
  23. Just returned to the game after a long break, decided to start a new career with a few mods (mostly engineer and contract configurator). I habitually take a scientist on most missions as their description says they boost science return on the vessel they are in. As an experiment I decided to work out how much extra science it was making from my typical Mun mission with and without a scientist. To my surprise I found that my level 1 scientist (its early game OK! ) was not boosting the science return of my vessels by the advertised amount (5%) and the science return was the same no matter my crew composition. I have already tried the same test in a new un-modded save with the same result. Have I misunderstood the scientist description text or am I doing something wrong? Cheers.
