  1. kOS Scriptable Autopilot System v1.1.5.2 for KSP 1.4.1 (This is a continuation of the old thread about the kOS mod: ( 1.2.2 kOS scriptable autopilot system ).) [TODO - need to add some nice pictures here tomorrow once I finish going through the release checklist.] kOS (Kerbal Operating System) is an autopilot you script yourself. kOS is to programming, what Kerbal Space Program itself is to rocket science. You don’t have to know what you’re doing to get started, but you may find yourself learning a lot by accident as you play with it. And if you already know a lot about programming, it will still be able to hold your interest. kOS is meant to scale with the skill level of the user. You can start off doing very small simple things with it, and get more and more into using its features as you go. Example: print "Launching". lock steering to heading(90,80). lock throttle to 1. stage. wait until altitude > 5000. lock steering to heading(90,60). wait until altitude > 15000. lock steering to heading(90,45). wait until altitude > 25000. lock steering to heading(90,30). until apoapsis > 80000 { print "apoapsis is " + round(apoapsis,0). wait 0. } lock throttle to 0. // ..etc... What it does kOS introduces a few new parts that each contain a simulated computer capable of running programs written in its own scripting langauge called kerboscript. The computer has powerful smarts built in to the hardware that allow it to do complex spacecraft operations in one command, thus making it possible to make complex programs with only a few lines of script text. The intent of kOS is to be a fully in-game item that lives inside the Kerbal’s universe. The program isn’t running on your own gaming computer, but rather it’s being run in a virtual machine that is simulated in the underlying Unity engine. History kOS was originally begun as a mod by a single author, Kevin Laity aka Nivekk. Although the project has undergone massive changes since then and now has a very different underlying archetecture and is under active development by a different set of people, none of that would have been possible without his original vision and work.

  2. Tantares Space Technologies Full Image Gallery This is a stockalike parts mod that allows you to create Soviet rockets and spacecraft. The parts are made with the "Lego" frame of mind. They all go together to make a certain craft, but are flexible enough to be used in any other design. Thanks to @DiscoSlelge for the wonderful vectors. Old Tantares Old TantaresLV Recolours Translations @TK-313 Russian, Благодарю! @Daniel Prates Portuguese, Obrigado! @DiscoSlelge French, Merci! @fitiales Spanish, ¡Gracias! FAQ Q. Where are the IVAs? A. A great deal of time and effort required that I sadly do not have. Manned capsules will aim to have IVAs, but larger station parts will have to make-do with placeholders. Q. Why does the Soyuz seat only two? A. It was the case for a long time, but it now seats three! Q. Why are the rockets overpowered? My Soyuz can put 15 tons into low orbit? A. They are balanced against stock parts, as to not be intentionally useless. See here for a better experience courtesy of @pap1723. Q. I only want a certain craft, how do I do that? A. The download GameData folder is split by craft, simply delete what you don't want. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.
  3. EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements - Clouds and City Lights EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements (a.k.a. EVE) is a mod for KSP that adds clouds and city lights. It is highly configurable and a number of other mods provide improved clouds not just for the stock planets, but for other planets provided by other mods. The mod works on KSP 1.3 and KSP 1.4, and older versions are also available. This thread is a continuation of @rbray89's original EVE thread, so that we can continue updates and discussions. Installation The mod is distributed as two ZIP files, one small one which contains the plugin and shaders, and one large one which contains a sample configuration. If you are installing another mod which supplies EVE configurations, such as SVE, you should not install the sample configs. If you use CKAN, select EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements and then choose a config (if only one is available, that one will auto-select). If you are installing manually, download the latest ZIP files from https://github.com/WazWaz/EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements/releases and unpack them into your KSP directory. The zip files include the "GameData" directory and so this should merge with the same-named directory in your KSP installation, such that after installing, your KSP's GameData directory will contain the "Squad" directory shipped with the game, the "EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements" directory which you just installed, and, if you installed the sample configs, a BoulderCo directory. Configs for other mods are generally shipped in their own directories. It is strongly recommended that you use the 64-bit version of KSP when using EVE, especially with advanced configurations. Note that you will not necessarily see any clouds on Kerbin in the main menu. Load a game to check if you've successfully installed the mod. If you wish to install for KSP versions prior to KSP 1.2, see the original thread, but note that there is little support for old versions. Compatibility with other Mods EVE is compatible with most mods, but in particular it is tested to inter-operate well with these visual mods: Scatterer - makes atmospheres realistically "haze". PlanetShine - makes the glow from planets/moons produce ambient light. Stock Visual Terrain - make the terrain detail of the stock planets much better quality. There are also a number of excellent mods that provide advanced configurations beyond the sample ones shipped alongside EVE: Stock Visual Enhancements (SVE) - high quality visuals, recommended for higher-end systems. Para-Sci High-Performance Atmosphere Pack - sleek but still beautiful visuals, even less CPU/GPU demanding than the basic configuration. Be sure to remove the sample configs (the "GameData/BoulderCo/" directory) if you manually install a mod that provides all its own configurations. If installing via CKAN, you will be prompted with what needs removing. If using the Real Solar System mod, you will need different configurations, such as: Real Solar System Visual Enhancements If using the Outer Planets Mods, you will probably want to add EVE for those too, such as: Pood's Outer Planets Mod Visual Overhaul Performance EVE runs fine on mid-range systems. See the alternative configurations above for different performance characteristics. The most expensive effect is currently the volumetric clouds. You can turn these off in the in-game configuration dialog, or by editing the configs with a text editor. Obviously the more cloud layers, the more costly are the effects. By default, only cloud layers within 10km of the camera can produce volumetric clouds. Configuration The sample configuration includes a single layer of clouds and city lights for Kerbin and cloud layers for other stock planets/moons as appropriate. You can modify the configuration in-game by pressing Alt-0 (zero), though be warned that this is an advanced feature. If you save broken configs you will need to re-install your chosen configs. There is no undo. Documentation for the config files is currently pending, but note that since EVE-1.2-1, the _MinLight option has been changed. It should be set to 0 (the default) unless you want clouds to glow on the night side (eg. auroras). Also note the relatively new "UVNoise" setting, which allows adding noise to the texture look-ups, either for large animated cloud effects (see Jool), or to mask pixelization in fine detail (see Kerbin). Pretty Pictures and Videos For now, see the original thread for slightly outdated pictures and videos. If you have ones you wish to display here, provided they are short and contain no revenue-generation, just ask. Contributing If you have code changes you would like to contribute to the core plugin or shaders, please submit a Pull Request on the GitHub project: https://github.com/WazWaz/EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements If you have major config changes you would like to contribute, these are probably best supplied to users as an independent mod, in the same way as others listed above like SVE.

    KSP 1.4.1 Performance

    I have throughout KSP history ever since 1.0 had a performance issue in KSP. While performance on 1.4.1 is much better than it has been I still experience one specific thing which I think is related to a mod, but I have been unable to isolate the mod. Every few seconds it's like the game freezes for just an instant and then continuing - making the experience just a little less smooth than I could wish for. As stated I think it's one of my mods, since I have not recreated it in KSP unmodded. So my quetion to you (the community) is, does anyone else experience this, and have anybody been successful in isolating the mod causing it? I remember having this issue at least since 1.1, and I do think it is because I keep installing many of the same mods. My mod/dll list from my KSP log. I have highlighted some of the .dll's which I seem to recall having back in the day as well, however it is a little foggy. Does anyone have a clue. PS: I have tried installing them one by one, and somehow I missed when the problem started... Might be it is a combination thing.
  5. I am not a very creative person and I really want to make a mod for KSP. If you guys have any concepts plz tell me and I'm gonna probably make a mod out of it.
  6. A splinter faction of the renowned Tantares Space Technologies company, started in the backyard of an ambitious defector, this foundling space agency is slowly growing to become a competitor with the big boys. Q & A: Q: What is "Notantares Space Industries?" A: "Notantares Space Industries" is a mod intended to expand upon the extremely diverse and popular mod Tantares (Much like CONTARES does), including spacecraft and/or rockets that are not included in the main mod (eg: The "Big Soyuz," etc.), as well as various other additions. It is designed to be completely independant from Tantares, so that those who aren't using it can still use the Notantares Space Industries series of mods. Notantares is designed to be released in a series of "mini-packs," much like SXT used to have its own mini-packs, so that those who only want a specific selection of parts can just download those parts. However, it is, most importantly, not Tantares! Q: Can you add X, Y, and Z into the game? A: Thanks for the suggestion! I'll try to expand the mod to include these, but there are priorities. Q: Can you add IVAs? A: I will try to give IVAs to command pods, but for any large station parts, they'll have to wait. Mods: Big Soyuz "Big Khleb." (1.4.2) Please Note: The above picture is outdated; The Big Soyuz mod now includes way more rocket parts, and with updated normal maps. DESCRIPTION: "Big Khleb" is an advanced crew transportation spacecraft capable of holding up to 6 kerbonauts, and is unlockable in the mid-to-late tech tree. It is designed to be able to support its crew for long-duration missions to space stations or to assist in lunar expeditions. It shall be designed with its own set of 0.9375m ungendered docking ports, so that those who do not use Tantares can still use the "Big Khleb." Whatever your needs, the "Big Khleb" can fulfil them! It currently includes 3 fully-functional IVAs, a selection of modular command pods, fuel tanks, and engines, and functioning docking ports with integrated parachutes! DEPENDENCIES: Modulemanager by @sarbian (Included). LICENSE: GNU General Public License v3.0. CREDIT: Special thanks to @Beale and @passinglurker for allowing me to modify one of their texture sheets. A big thanks to @Nertea, for helping me solve numerous problems with my IVA. ---------- Notantares Station Parts. (1.4.2) Watch The Trailer. Please Note: This video is outdated and does not contain the full selection of parts the mod currently has. DESCRIPTION: Notantares Station Parts is a parts mod that will include an extensive array of both inflatable and rigid space station parts, designed to be used for orbital bases and spacecraft. The included parts will range from Bigelow-style inflatable habitats, centrifuges, and ISS-style crew modules. It is designed as an expansion to the Big Soyuz and NotantaresLV mini-packs. It currently includes a 1.25m large inflatable habitat (3.75m when inflated, can hold 8 crew, functions as a science lab!), a 1.25m inflatable centrifuge (9m when inflated, functions as crew storage only!), a 1.25m medium-sized inflatable habitat (3.75m when inflated, can hold 6 crew, functions as a science lab!), and a 1.25m small-sized inflatable habitat (3.75m when inflated, can hold 4 crew, functions as crew storage only!).

CREDIT: Special thanks to @Angel-125 for allowing me to use his DSEV Utils plugin. A big thanks to a host of other modders for helping me with numerous animation problems. ---------- Notantares LV. (1.4.2) Watch The Trailer. Please Note: This video is outdated and contains an older version of the Notangara launch vehicle. DESCRIPTION: NotantaresLV is a mod that includes an extensive collection of parts designed to be used in the construction of both fictional and real-world launch vehicles, most notably Angara and the UR-700 Soviet moon rocket. It currently includes a full suite of 1.75m, 2.5m, and 3.75m fuel tanks with integrated texture-switching, an RD-191 engine for the Angara URM-1 boosters, an RD-0124 engine for the Angara URM-2 upper stage, 1.875m and 2.5m aerodynamic nosecones, 1.875m and 2.5m decouplers, and a 2.5m fairing! DEPENDENCIES: Modulemanager by @sarbian (Included). LICENSE: GNU General Public License v3.0. ---------- DarkSideTechnology Continued. (1.4.2) Watch Kottabos' Review. Please Note: This review is outdated and does not showcase the full selection of parts the mod currently has. DESCRIPTION: A set of parts to help you in the construction of large interplanetary spacecraft. Includes MM patches for CTT, USI-LS and Snacks! It currently includes a 2.5m foldable centrifuge, 2.5m and 3.75m hubs for building stations, and inline 3.75m solar panels. DEPENDENCIES: Modulemanager by @sarbian (Included). LICENSE: GNU General Public License v3.0. CREDIT: Special thanks to @Badsector for allowing me to take over and maintain DarkSideTechnology. ---------- BDB-Compatible Gemini Paraglider. (1.4.2) DESCRIPTION: This early-to-mid tech tree wonder is designed to be used with the Bluedog Design Bureau Gemini, but it has a degree of modularity that allows it to be used by any capsule. It can be deployed instead of a parachute, and allows a capsule to glide to down to a landing in a dried-up lake bed or a runway, like an aircraft! Includes 1 part: A deployable Gemini-style paraglider wing. DEPENDENCIES: Modulemanager by @sarbian (Included), RetractableLiftingSurface by @linuxgurugamer (NOT INCLUDED). LICENSE: GNU General Public License v3.0. CREDIT: Special thanks to @CobaltWolf for allowing me to use/modify one of his texture sheets.

ATTACHMENT INSTRUCTIONS (IMPORTANT!) ---------- Porkalike Gemini-style "Mk1-A" Command Pod. (1.4.2) A 1.25m, 2-man, Porkalike, Gemini-alike command pod, whose textures are modified and transplanted from the Mk1 pod from the Porkjet rocketry overhaul, in order to look good next to Porkjet parts. Has built-in ComfortableLanding (By @Icecovery) compatibility, for those who are using that mod, and a placeholder IVA until I can scrape up the time to make one myself! It currently includes just one part: The Mk1-A command pod. DEPENDENCIES: Modulemanager by @sarbian, (Included). LICENSE: GNU General Public License v3.0.
  7. Oh hi there. This is the development forum for my pack I'm making, the Challenge Planet Pack. It includes so far: Nulleff: a super-tylo with no atmosphere and 2.6 gees of gravity. It also orbit 30% farther than Eeloo on a inclined and eccentric orbit. Good luck. Pebbles: a space pebble 3 km wide wide, with surface gravity 50% lower than gilly. Orbits Nulleff in a Polar Orbit, close in. Fun.... Hel: a molten world skimming above the sun with a lot of atmosphere. We're not sure why it's there or how it's atmosphere is staying. The size of dres. Ira: a Small, Young brown dwarf that is very hot. You will not reach the surface. either you will be crushed, melted, or krakened into oblivion. Inclined orbit, so much harder than jool. I might make Nullef it's Moon, and Pebbles another moon of it. Credits: @NickRoss120 Naming Nulleff and Pebbles their Appropriate Names.

    Standalone mission editor/planner!

    Hi! I've been working on a standalone mission editor (prebuilt windows download here) for KSP that uses the krpc mod to connect to KSP. I've been working on it on and off for a few months and just picked it back up for a university module so have made some decent progress recently. I've thrown together a quick video showing some basics off and I'm hoping some of you lovely people will give it a go and throw some feedback my way - either here or on the issues page. Even better I'd welcome code contributions with new functionality! Also, send me interesting missions and accompanying crafts that you've made - I'd love to try them out!
  9. Launch Pad is a CKAN Client written for macOS. It allows you to download and install mods for Kerbal Space Program, including dependencies. If you play KSP on a Mac, and find it hard to use the official CKAN application using monodevelop, give Launch Pad a try! The app is still being developed, so while you can install most mods with it, you can't upgrade them right now. The app uses the original CKAN Metadata Repository, so all mods that are available on CKAN are also available in here. I'd LOVE for some adventurous Mac users to try it out and leave feedback though. More Information on GitHub Download the latest Alpha Version Submit Bugs and Feature Request Before trying out Launch Pad, I'd recommend creating a backup of your KSP directory, simply because it's still alpha software. If you have any question regarding how to install and use the app, please feel free to ask
  10. Latest Release Spacedock Source Original mod by: @tgruetzm Continuation by: Angel-125 Snacks was originally published by tgruetzm in August of 2014. It offered a novel and lightweight solution to life support for those that didn't want the complexity of more sophisticated mods like TAC Life Support. Two years later, the game has advanced and while the original author appears to have moved on, it was time to give Snacks an update. Snacks Continued retains the simplicity of the original mod while adding new options. You can configure things like snacks consumed per meal, meals per day, enable/disable recycling, recycling efficiency, and various penalties for hungry kerbals including reputation loss, fines, and partial loss of vehicle control. You can even enable/disable random snacking if desired. Just like with the stock CommNet, the penalties won't brick your mission- or your save. And if you're new to Snacks Continued, please consult the KSPedia.

  11. Hello, Yesterday, I found out that about a week and a half prior, Realism Overhaul had (finally! ) been updated for 1.3.1. So, I did this sequence of events (I'm on Windows 10, BTW): Backed up saves and screenshots for safety, Deleted my copy of CKAN and the CKAN folder, as it was malfunctioning. Recalling the tumultuous experience I had with upgrading to 1.2.2, I uninstalled KSP and reinstalled it as 1.3.1. I reinstalled CKAN. CKAN recognized the mods that still existed in the Game Data folder, but (presumably because I deleted my CKAN folder), they were marked by 2 capital letters (which I can't recall) and I could not do anything with them. I permanently deleted all the Game Data, as I always have very little space on my computer. This took with it all of my custom engine configs, yaay... Now I could reinstall the mods. I attempted to do so, but it kept aborting the procedure as the mods were attempting to install a craft that was already in the Ships folder, which also strangely wasn't swept away by the reinstall. I sent the craft to the Recycle Bin. I tried again. This time a different craft showed up. What should I do? Should I delete my Ships folder or just the contents? What about the stock crafts or pre-made crafts that may not be provided in 1.3.1 RO?
  12. Download Here (1.4 is most recent update) EVE is bundled, but be sure to check EVE page for updates as i will not be updating this mod often. Pics: (some may be outdated, will get updated as i get good screenies) Features: *Minimalistic design and lack of scatterer requirement (feel free to run it alongside this mod if you like to, just isnt required for this to look good) allows this to run on potato computers. *All planets but Gilly and Bop have atmospheric scatter or glow effects rendered via EVE cloud layers. Colors are generally highly saturated to give a more sci-fi universe feel compared to the more white and washed out realistic style used in most other mods. *Kerbin, Duna, Eve, and Laythe have light volumetric clouds. They are a good balance between thickness and performance, should not cause any real lag. *Most airless bodies have fog/dust effects. Color choice is fairly varied, with some planets having highly colorful fog while others use a more greyish color. Duna has dust storms and Eeloo has blizzards. Particle density is kept to an absolute minimum to keep performance up. While i cannot speak for everyone, my mid range laptop is capable of handling this mod as well as 2 1000 part warships in low orbit around any planet. *Lite edition has no clouds and does not come with the respective textures (use this if you want more performance or prefer to not have clouds like stock scatterer would). Changelog: V-1.4 *Optimized to work alongside stock scatterer (download and install this separately, not packaged with this mod), *Redone or tweaked textures for Kerbin, Duna, Eve, and Laythe. Some new textures, some altered previous textures. *Added uvnoise feature to all major cloud maps to help eliminate jagged edge problems. Not a perfect solution, but it allows lower resolution detail textures and still keeps the cloud layers looking decent. *Few alterations to colors, particle density, ect. *Rain fx added to Laythe. *Mod now broken up into 3 separate files, the base mod (required dependancy), with optional cloud and dust addons. All come in a single zip file, but you can easily pick what features you want. V-1.3 *Huge overhaul of Kerbin, Duna, and Laythe. Completely redone textures (cloud maps, detail textures, particle textures). Detail textures are vastly improved with 2 of em being 4096x4096 to allow a good variety of cloud styles within a single layer without creating obvious tiling issues. *Brand new particle sprites for all planets with a bit more focus on overall quality. *More varied particle maps which makes each planet have a different thickness and level of particle coverage, no more reusing the same detail textures for half the planets. *Many other alterations too minor to bother mentioning, try it out to find out. V-1.2 *New custom cloud maps in 4096x2048 (8192x4096 for Kerbin), unique to every planet. Styles vary from purely sci-fi to semi-realistic depending on the planet for variety's sake. *Three new higher resolution detail textures which are both high res and do not give tiling issues when viewed from far away. Currently textures are for cumulus, cirrus, and a sci-fi one. *Seven new particle textures. Three are for clouds, all of which are wispy in nature and optimized to look good with very low particle density. Four are for the surface effects which vary from some particulates floating around to full blown dust storms. *Few minor color adjustments to improve looks with the new cloud textures. V-1.1 *Improved detail textures. *Minor changes to atmosphere and glow colors. V-1.0 *Initial release. Support: Due to a lack of time in my life i am not offering support of any kind officially. I may or may not update this mod when/if i get time on vacations or whatnot, but i currently have a full time job, family to take care of, and what little downtime i have available i cannot really spend on videogame modding. It was a pleasure working on this mod (and a few others), but for now im officially on hiatus, and as such ive modified the licensing to allow anyone to do anything with the mod or resources solong as it remains freely available for everyone to enjoy (that means no using any of my work to make money without my explicit permission). If you are having trouble installing, please post on the thread, and someone with technical knowledge on the forum should be able to help you. You may use all art assets and parts of this mod as you please, credit is appreciated but its not like im gonna chase anyone down if they dont. You are free to redistribute identical and modified copies of this mod. Also, absolutely no commercial use without explicit permission period, im not making any money on this free mod and neither will anyone else. And liscense for EVE itself which is packaged alongside mod:

    [1.3.0] Launch Numbering 0.4.0

    Launch Numbering is a very simple mod - with one job to do. Every time you launch a vehicle, the mod examines the name. If it's seen that name launch before, it appends a number on the end. So, if you launch the same vehicle 4 times, they should all be uniquely named. Downloadable from Spacedock Source on github MIT Licensed In game settings, you'll find options on whether we use Arabic or Roman numerals, and whether we show Bloc numbers (wherein we try to identify "variants" of the vessel, in terms of its structure, and show it as a different Bloc). Now that this is doing what I wanted, I'm open to suggestions for anything that others would like to be able to configure with it.

  17. I'm new to making ksp planets and I was wondering if I could turn a model and textures into a ksp planet thank you.
  18. Our researchers were digging in the Kerbal History of Space Flight and they tumbled over some long forgotten parts.

  19. It's a busy day at the Space Center as the new T.R.A.P Engines arrive from General Universal and Kerbal-Tech. These engines were predicted to have a much better performance at a higher altitude than previous engines. Jeb's test flight was scheduled for the next day. This gave the engineers only half a day to mount the three new engines on three identical planes. The next day Jeb goes on his test flight, testing the "Mouse T.R.A.P" engine. Jeb reports that the engine is performing as expected at high altitude. Jeb tests the other two engines successfully. This is a mod which adds three new engines: The Mouse T.R.A.P, the Bear T.R.A.P, and the Rhino T.R.A.P. The engines all have the same model, that of the stock Rapier engine. The way they work is by having better performance at low altitude, at the cost of using more Intake Air, and better performance at higher altitudes by using more liquid fuel, but less Intake Air. These modes automatically switch, but you can also manually switch the modes. The engine switching works pretty much like the Rapier engine. I made the actual changes to the .cfg files, creating this mod, but the idea was all my friend @Lucast0909's. He's given me permission to publish this mod, and he says that I don't need to credit him, but as we all know, the idea is half of the mod. My idea for version 1.1.0 of this mod was to use the variant switching introduced in KSP 1.4 to enable you to have more than one model for the engine. The idea is that you can have the model of the Rapier, or say the Panther, even the Swivel, picking the look that works best for your plane. However, I found out that that is not possible. I will try to learn to model, to give these engines better textures. I think these engines are tech tree and cost balanced, but please let me know. Please give me any feedback you have. If anybody has a better name for the mod, please tell me. License: Unlicense Download: Spacedock
  20. I've been working on custom liveries for use with the new Variant construct introduced with 1.4. I'm aware of certain issues regarding the command modules and how they break the flags and so forth. However, assuming those issues get sorted... I have the following Mod Manager script that seems to work quite well for adding my custom livery files as a Variant for each part that I want. ////////// avionicsNoseCone \\\\\\\\\\ @PART[avionicsNoseCone]:HAS[!MODULE[ModulePartVariants]] { MODULE { name = ModulePartVariants primaryColor = #ffffff secondaryColor = #4c4f47 baseDisplayName = White baseThemeName = White } } @PART[avionicsNoseCone] { @MODULE[ModulePartVariants] { VARIANT { name = Stealth displayName = Stealth themeName = Stealth primaryColor = #2c2c2c //dark gray secondaryColor = #000000 //black TEXTURE { mainTextureURL = Livery/Stealth/Skins/Airbrake } } } } This works fine, and if you notice, the first thing it does is adds a ModulePartVariants module to the part, but only if the module does not exist. Then, it adds the new Variant for the custom livery. Couple questions for you all... 1) given that this is the syntax for a single part, and it's rather lengthy... Do you see any way it could be streamlined and maintain functionality? 2) the "name", "displayName", and "themeName" seem a bit redundant... but it seems to work like this? Am I misnaming something here? ...or should they be different for some reason?
  21. I've got a copy of KSP with a ton of mods on it. (along with 3 others, namely my semi-stock, RO/RSS, and Kerbal Kommander ones) And it takes a reeeeeally long time to load. I've got over 150 mods on it, all of which aren't exactly disposable. So, my question is, what mods are there that'll speed up loading times? And no, removing the big mods is not an option here.
  22. So I downloaded the update for ksp 1.4.1, and when I start the game, I notice that my B9 aerospace engines make no sound and have no jet animation, though they still produce thrust. Only the stock engines have sounds and animation in the updated game. Any tips on how to fix this?

  24. This tiny mod empowers your every day tourists for much more kourageous adventures. With a little bit of training they finally can disembark the space (and other types of) craft. For their efforts not to be left forgotten, they can picture themselves in the most distant places imaginable. And last, but not least - they're willing to pay some good money for their entertainment. Sample of picture of group of tourists visiting a Mün base. Note those happy faces. Some more screenshots: Now, some technical details. This mod temporarily promotes tourists to crew members in order to allow them go EVA. However, actual EVA ability is restricted based on current tourist experience level and vessel situation. These restrictions are configurable with defaults as follows: Level EVA allowed when Jetpack 0 Landed on Kerbin; not moving No 1 Landed or Splashed on Kerbin, Landed on Mün or Minmus; surface speed below 1 m/s No 2 Landed or Splashed anywhere; surface speed below 3 m/s No 3 Landed or Splashed anywhere or being on stable orbit; no speed restrictions No 4 Landed or Splashed anywhere or being on stable orbit; no speed restrictions Yes Level 5 tourists, if they survived to this, can do basically everything. Tourists gain experience just like regular crew, so for training them to level one, just take them to orbital spaceflight around Kerbin and recover. Level 2 could be obtained by Mün/Minmus landings and this is enough for every possible contract destination. You can also train them onsite using facilities that provide Level up crew function, albeit it does not seem safe enough. Jetpack fuel is drained if tourist level does not allow using it. Tourists still can not perform things like taking surface samples, collect experiment data or pilot ships, however they can carry stuff if KIS is installed and can take photos of themselves. All kerbals in the scene will notice that and express some emotions depending on their courage and stupidity levels. The photo could be found in standard screenshot directory and looks like Glerina Kerman-Mun-17-03-01-12:06:18.png, i.e. file name contains the name of the kerbal taking photo, planetary body and time when it was taken. This mod also adds three new types of contracts that depend on tourists ability to de-board the vessel. Walking on the surface of celestial body Taking picture of tourist group when they walk on the surface of celestial body Taking picture of tourist group when they stay nearby some point of interest (currently anomalies on Kerbin and Mün; exact location is not given, only some hints; make use of your scanners) Needless to say that all contracts require safe recovery of all involved tourists. Mod Compatibility This mod was tested and found compatible with following EVA-related mods: EVA Fuel Continued EVA Enhancements Continued EVA Follower With latest version of EVA Fuel, the jetpack fuel that was drained from vessel's tanks, is returned back, in previous versions it would be lost. Kudos to @linuxgurugamer for adding a patch for this. EVA Follower is rather old mod, but is very handy and was rebuilt for 1.3, look it up in the end of the forum thread. Tourists can also add some charm and style to their selfies by opting to Araym's Stock-alike Advanced Suits Issues Contract rewards are bit skewed, please suggest some improvements. Please report if you find any other issue. Bugs could be fixed faster if you provide your log file when debug is turned on - see GameData/KourageousTourists/Kourage.cfg Development thread (if of any interest) can be found here Changelog Future improvements I'd like to have real selfie-stick KIS prop, but lack modelling skills to make it. If you feel like you could do it, please contact me. Also, contract suggestions (or any other suggestions) are welcome. Side effect With ability to board and de-board vessels, you can really seize re-usability.

  25. The Cuttlefish Empire

    [1.3.1] Imperial Planet Pack v0.6 [Alpha]

    IMPERIAL PLANET PACK Hundreds of thousands of years after the star Azure passed by Kerbol and deposited a wealth of new planets in the system...such as Olu'um, Quarta, and Scorch...a second star passed by: Helios. It was dragged along by Azure, and passed by the severely altered Kerbol system and changed the already shaken and unstable planets a lot - it effectively "stole" all of the Kerbol planets, rendering their orbits skewed and the planets very different. The Voluxian Empire, from around Olu'um, meanwhile, was going out and colonising all the planets they could: after they got the technology to escape Olu'um, they felt an insatiable drive to spread their kind around the solar system, planting colonies on any planet they could, regardless of whether or not it was feasible. One day, however, they discovered another civilisation in the solar system: on Gaia. They quickly subjugated the population and made the Gaians do the Imperial bidding... APOLLO Apollo, formerly known as Moho, was once a nicer place: brown and airless, rather than with reddish orange colouration and fiery air: with oceans of lava to top it all off. After it captured a small planet that was orbiting Helios, the initial stages of its rings were formed from the debris created from the tidal forces of the two bodies. However, Apollo's new proximity to the sun rendered any moons unstable in their orbits: as such, it crashed into the planet, heating it further and creating the remainder of the ring. Now, the only remnant of this moon is a small chunk of lava orbiting Apollo in an inclined, eccentric orbit... Meanwhile, the Empire was colonising Apollo. Although it was very hot and hostile to life, they nevertheless tried: the components for an atmosphere and oceans were shipped there at great expense to initialise the terraforming process. They managed to get an atmosphere to retain its mass...though it was of such a high pressure that only Voluxians could go outside, not their Gaian servants. After an atmosphere was established and a dense ozone layer were implemented, water was added into the mix. Small oceans formed, but most of it went into the atmosphere. When the small moon crashed into the planet, it vaporised the oceans and a lot of the material on the planet, creating the dense cloud layer currently present and reducing the entire surface to slag for a while. It eventually cooled down enough so that land could form; however, lava still covers a large amount of the surface today. All traces of the colonists were melted with the surface.... THANATOS Thanatos was once known as Eve...until the Voluxians came with their names and made it Thanatos for all intents and purposes; it is significantly different from how it used to be, though: rather than a scalding hot, toxic planet with very high gravity, it is now a hot, high-pressure planet with very high gravity. The introduction of a species of bacterium specialised at breaking down the toxins found in Thanatos's atmosphere converted it into a planet well-suited for colonisation, at least relatively speaking; considering that planets like Apollo existed, it was a mean feat to be considered viable. The conversion increased the liquid component of its oceans and reduced the gaseous, accounting for its lowered atmospheric thickness and increased sea level. The differences in terrain were due to geological activity from the tidal influence of its recently captured moon of Theristis - this airless, bluish grey body is a beautiful sight to see in the crimson sunsets of Thanatos. Theristis was a minor planet in the Helios system, and the large sphere of influence of Thanatos resulted in it being captured. Unlike Apollo's captured moon of Leto, this did not lead to any disastrous consequences for the fledgling ecosystem on the planet below. TERRA Terra. Once known as Gaia, it has undergone drastic changes since the Voluxians first came and turned it into a planet of factories and mines in order to fuel their ever-voracious machine of expansion and colonisation. The ice caps have partially melted, oceans have flooded some of the terrain, vegetation has rebounded since the Empire - the majority of the planet is covered in lush forests of green, save those areas particularly devastated by the fires of industry: the massive, hot deserts encompassing the remaining land. Its moons have not changed much over the years: Luna has undergone some tidal shifting from the passing of Helios, making it somewhat different in terms of look, but fundamentally it is little different from Gol, other than of course the cooling of its crater. Selene's "goo" oceans that it had while it was called Gullis have also mixed back with the rest of the moon, rendering it more alike Minmus than Gullis, but more bluish. (note: I may make Luna [SEKRIT REDACTED NEFARIOUS PLANS FOR LUNA], but for now, it is simply the Mun but slightly different) Now that the Empire has crumbled and all their technology decaying in old fortresses, the Terrans are free to explore the solar system once more... ARES Formerly Duna, and now Ares, this body was one of the successful colonisation attempts of the Empire: unlike Thanatos, however, life on this planet flourished - the red inland of Duna is still present, however, due to the fact that the soil more distant from its oceans is less rich in nutrients; however, life will eventually spread there. Terrans, during the Imperial era, were not allowed there. It was a purely Voluxian world, the centre of their bureaucracy outside of Olu'um. As such, the legends of beautiful, strange forests under a red sky are prevalent in Terran culture from a lack of any ability to actually see the surface. For the first time in recent history, Terrans now have the ability to get to Ares and its beautiful moon Stratos. KYVERNITIS The original name of Kyvernitis has been lost, but it still retains the characteristic green colour it had in times of old; its moons, however, have changed drastically due to the influence of the terraformers of the Empire. Erimos, known once as Laythe, was crashed into by Bop; Bop disintegrated and Erimos lost its water - the only reason it still has an atmosphere is the Empire. Insula, however, was more successful. By melting the ice in the surface and adding an atmosphere, a cold, archipelago world with a band of life around the equator was created...and then Nova: the pride and joy of the Empire. A desert and forest world, temperate, perfect for life, it was used as a vacation resort for the most wealthy of Voluxians; the government was already established on Volux, Terra, and Ares, so they saw no need to set up on Nova...but it truly is a perfect homeworld for life: hence its name, the Voluxian word for "New". This planet pack is meant to be a continuation of the GPO planet pack by Gameslinx (link down below this) and all of his amazing planets, along with the stock ones. THIS IS A DEVELOPMENT THREAD, AND UNTIL I HAVE SOMETHING TO SHOW FOR EACH STOCK PLANET, I WILL NOT CONSIDER THIS A MOD IN A RELEASE WORTHY STATE, AND EVEN THEN PROBABLY NOT. The order of releases is roughly established: Pre-Alpha is all the stock planets established; Alpha is all the GPO planets established; Beta is all of the stock planets well made; and Release is all GPO planets well made. As of right now, it is in an alpha stage. Enjoy! Screenshots: GPO: Credits: @Gameslinx for inspiring me to make planets, providing advice and help, and just being an overall great influence on how this pack came about; @GregroxMun for yelling at me when I did dumb things with the mod; @Galileo for providing the skybox textures; ThomasP for creating the Kopernicus plugin, without which this mod would not be possible; rbray89 for making EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements, which allows the awesome clouds on Apollo to be a thing; blackrack for making Scatterer, which just makes everything work so much more well; and @JadeOfMaar for recommending things to do, and how to do them better. Thanks all of you TIMELINE: 09/04/17 - 11/14/17: Stock Replacement Making 11/15/17 - [tbd]: GPO Replacement Making Discord for people telling me what to do and how to do it better than I could on my own (also Gameslinx's discord is this one so thats cool): Screenshots: Album a/CbI6Q will appear when post is submitted IMPORTANT: READ THE README IN THE MOD FOLDER!!!
