  1. Beta release now available! Download from CurseForge NOTE: Default light settings in KSP only allow for 8 lights due to the added resource loads lights can cause. To increase the number of lights available, go to Settings/Graphics/Pixel Light Count and adjust it according to your system's abilities. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Compatible with @Li0n's Crew Light License is: a modified Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International Public License and view-able on Curse. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ This mod includes version checking using MiniAVC. If you opt-in, it will use the internet to check whether there is a new version available. Data is only read from the internet and no personal information is sent. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Source Idiot Lights! Read about them in this post Slime Lights Non-Idiot Lights And this is a stock aircraft on the runway with several of the lights attached to give a size comparison. So this all came about because I wanted some lights for a truck. After spending days trying to tie into ModuleLight I finally threw my hands up in disgust and wrote my own partmodule. Features: Works with multiple light sources on a single part using animations. GameObjects (lenses) so designated in the config can have their material color changed to match the light color. This happens real-time in the hangar. As you change the light color, the lens color changes. The color changer takes either _Color or _Emissive colors. GameObject (lenses) off colors - The plan is eventually to animate the lens colors to match the light color animation so that they fade in and out. I'm not there yet. Until such time, the lenses turn off and on during blink and remain on otherwise. The off color can be added in the .cfg file. Blinking lights - Most of these lights can be set to blink. On and Off times have a range of 0.1 sec to 10 sec. These are set via sliders in the hangar. Each light's blink time and blink state is set independently and is persistent Preset colors - Some of the lights on other mods I've seen have this cool blue shade rather than the stock yellow. With this plugin, you get 15 (at the moment) preset colors and the ability to add your own by adding to a dat file in the plugin directory. Preset format is: Color name,RGB.Red,RBG.Blue,RGB.Green I.E. Candle,255,147,41 Current color presets include: Candle 40W Tungsten 100W Tungsten Halogen Carbon Arc Warm Fluorescent Standard Fluorescent Cool White Fluorescent Full Spectrum Fluorescent Grow Light Fluorescent Black Light Fluorescent Mercury Vapor Sodium Vapor Metal Halide High Pressure Sodium Want more colors? Here's a website I found that has lots of them with their r,g,b values. Just add your favorites to the presets.dat in the Plugin folder. Future plans (hopes) Animating lens colors via code to match light colors. GUI menu to make that searchlight rotate and tilt. (done) Create a disco party truck (done) ProTip: To quickly locate these parts, search for Kerbal Electric in the hangar parts list.
  2. 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.

  3. 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. Downloads 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.

  6. 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:

  8. 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. Note that while some outdated information online recommends using the -force-d3d11 option, this is not needed with 64-bit KSP (which you should definitely be using if using EVE), and has been reported to possibly cause memory leaks. 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.
  9. 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." 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. 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. 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. 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. ---------- Porkalike Gemini-style "Mk1-A" Command Pod. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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.

  12. Are there mods to add more aspects to KSP's management? I feel like the budget system in KSP was just tacked on and never fully explored, and I hope some mods could change that.

    Mod Adoption Tutorial

    A forum user, @Murdabenne requested that I share how to do an adoption of a mod. So, last week I showed an adoption while on Twitch Stream, and have finished writing up the steps here. The video is available at the end of the OP. These instructions and the files are available on Github: https://github.com/linuxgurugamer/KSP-Build-Scripts/releases/tag/0.0.1 They are all licensed using the GPLv3 This process has evolved over time; the first mods I adopted didn't use these, and each one was a customized setup. As time went on I developed this process, with the following goals in mind: Consistency Repeatability Ease of setup Easy to follow While not perfect, they do the job for me. Occasionally I run into a mod which has an odd layout or setup, which can usually be dealt with by rearranging folders, or some other minor changes. This discussion will not be going into any issues about coding or bug fixing,etc. These scripts are based on the following directory layout: modmaindir |-> GameData |-> ModDir |-> Plugins |-> Sourcedir The GameData should contain all files needed for a release Abbreviations used VS - Visual Studio IDE - Integrated Development Environment Overview and Dependencies These scripts are based on the following directory layout: modmaindir |-> GameData |-> ModDir |-> Plugins |-> Sourcedir The GameData should contain all files needed for a release Overview and Dependencies Dependencies These instructions are based on using Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 Community version, available here: https://www.visualstudio.com/free-developer-offers/ The 7Zip packaging program is required for the final packaging, available here: http://www.7-zip.org/ The JQ program is required to parse the JSON version file, available here: https://stedolan.github.io/jq/download/ Overview Part of the process involves adding a file, AssemblyVersion.tt, to the codebase. This file is called a "Text Template", and is used to create the AssemblyVersion value which is then stored in the final DLL There are two batch files, deploy.bat and buildRelease.bat. The "deploy.bat" used to copy the DLL to the GameData directory, and then to copy the complete release to a test install. The "buildRelease.bat" is used to create the final zip file for release While the packaging program can be changed to an alternative (with appropriate changes to the "buildRelease.bat" file, the JQ program is required and not replacable. The assumption is also made that the mod is downloaded and ready to be worked on. Instructions 1. Create the GameData folder if it doesn't exist If it doesn't exist, then copy the latest release of the mod into the GameData folder 2. Find the .version file (if it exists) and copy it to the top level directory. If it doesn't have a .version file, create one in the top level directory 3. You can either copy the AssemblyVersion.tt to the main mod folder, or create a new TextTemplate in the project (using MS Studio) and do a copy/paste operation. If you copy it over, you will need to add the file to the project in the IDE 4. Edit the AssemblyVersion.tt file, update the following line: string versionfile = @"CompletePathTo.version"; Replace the "CompletePathTo.version" with the path to the .version file. 5. Remove or comment out the following line from the file AssemblyInfo.cs (usually located in the "Properties" folder inside your C# project): [assembly: AssemblyVersion("1.0.0.0")] 6. If there are any Pre-build steps in VS, copy them to a save place and delete them. 7. If there are an Post-build steps in VS, copy them as well 8. Add the following to the Pre-build event command line. This line is based on using Visual Studio 2017, installed on the X drive: set textTemplatingPath="%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\Common7\IDE\texttransform.exe" %textTemplatingPath% "$(ProjectDir)AssemblyVersion.tt" 0. Copy the two files, deploy.bat and buildRelease.bat to the main mod folder 10. You need to update the deploy.bat and the buildRelease.bat with the following values: H to point to your test KSP install: set H=R:\KSP_1.3.1_dev GAMEDIR to the name of the mod folder: set GAMEDIR=xxxxx GAMEDATA to point to the GameData folder: GAMEDATA="GameData" VERSIONFILE to the name of the .version file: VERSIONFILE=%GAMEDIR%.version In most cases, the VERSIONFILE is built from the GAMEDIR, but some mods use a different name 11. For the buildRelease.bat, you have to update the following as well: If existing, LICENSE to the license file: set LICENSE=License.txt If existing, README to the Readme file: README=ReadMe.md Set RELEASEDIR to where you want the zip file: RELEASEDIR=d:\Users\jbb\release 12. If you want to use a different program than 7z, change it in the next line. If you do, you will have to change the options to the zip program at the end of the file: set ZIP="c:\Program Files\7-zip\7z.exe" 13. In the IDE, right-click on the Solution in the Solution Explorer, and select "Add -> New Solution Folder", give the folder a name SolutionItems 14. Right-click on the SolutionItems folder, and select Add -> Existing item..., add the two files just copied and the .version file 15. Add the following to the Post-build event command line, replace the "xxxxx" with the complete path to the top level directory of the mod: start /D xxxxx /WAIT deploy.bat $(TargetDir) $(TargetFileName) if $(ConfigurationName) == Release ( start /D xxxxx /WAIT buildRelease.bat $(TargetDir) $(TargetFileName) ) 16. Make sure the .version file has the correct values. 17. Now, set the Visual Studio configuration to Debug, and do a test compile. 18. If all is correct, it will compile the code, copy the DLL to the destination folder, and then copy the complete release to your test KSP installation 19. Finally, change the VS config to "Release" and rebuild the mod. This time it will add the step to pack up the entire release and leave it in the RELEASEDIR I did an online stream when I used most of this to adopt a small mod, you can watch it here:

    Pimp your Stearwing

    The stock Stearwing A300. The first plane I successfully landed, so I have a soft spot for it. But let's be honest, it is not the most exciting aircraft out there. So, in the spirit of innovation, here is the challenge: Take the stock Stearwing and customize it. Make it faster, slicker, sillier, spaceworthy, submersible...The finished product does not need to be an aircraft. Rules: 1. You may change and/or remove engines and landing gear if you wish. 2. You must not remove any other parts, however, you can move parts around, and add as many additional parts as you like. 3. No restrictions on Mods (though please indicate what you have used). Of course, all stock creativity is greatly appreciated and wins kudos. 4. Anything not explicitly forbidden by the above rules is not only allowed, but encouraged. 5. Please include photos and/or video and brag unashamedly about why your modification is simply the best, fastest, coolest, weirdest. I've got to learn Adobe Illustrator for work (last used it years ago and have forgotten everything), so I will use that as an excuse to make some badges. Categories TBD based on what people come up with, though probably one in each category for stock and modded. The example below is just a basic three-minute alteration. I'm working on something better and much farther outside the box. But you get the idea... Or this, which I created on the fly when the Mission Builder came out. Again, this is still pretty basic. You can tell by the engine placement that quality control was pretty lax on the assembly line that day. or this awesome video I found:

  17. With kind permission of @blizzy78 , and continuing on from his excellent work, I've taken on this plugin which is otherwise essentially the same as before This is a minimalist plugin that allows to adjust the ambient lighting on the fly. This should come in handy when you can't see your docking ports because you forgot to bring lights. It should also be useful to Youtubers and streamers that want to brighten things up a bit for their viewers. This plugin optionally supports Toolbar Plugin version >=1.7.0 (no longer bundled with the download - don't forget to grab it separately if you want it) How to Use You have two settings you can toggle between. To adjust the ambient lighting in the current setting, click on the toolbar button to open the slider. Then drag the knob of the slider around. Click the toolbar button again to hide the slider. To reset the ambient lighting in the current setting to KSP default levels, right-click the toolbar button. To switch to the second setting, click the toolbar button using the middle mouse button. Each time you click using the middle mouse button, you toggle between those two settings. Both settings are persisted between scene changes and KSP restarts. Download Ambient Light Adjustment Plugin :- Github KerbalStuff Spacedock Source code on GitHub: https://github.com/timmersuk/ksp_ambient_light This mod includes version checking using MiniAVC. If you opt-in, it will use the internet to check whether there is a new version available. Data is only read from the internet and no personal information is sent.

  19. Nuclear Aircraft Engines Download Thermonuclear Turbines (for KSP 1.1.2) on SpaceDock! A new hot way to get into orbit! This is a small engine mod that adds nuclear turbine aircraft engines based off of this concept, Aircraft Nuclear Propulsion, Project Pluto and the similar Soviet program Tupolev Tu-95LAL, also with a little influence from the Choujikuu Yousai Macross anime series and sequels to give two of the engines space capability. The concept behind the engine is that thermal energy is transferred through a heat exchanger into the "can" (combustion section of a turbine) instead of using combustion to rapidly heat up gasses to turn the turbine and provide thrust. Features for ver 1.1.0 (KSP 1.3.1) Update: COMING SOON! MOAR! Engines: 4x Nerv, 2x Nerv, Fusion Plasma Impulse, M.A.S.A.M.U.N.E., Back Draft, Fire Storm, and Fire Whirl. Two radial mount VTOL engines, Nuclear Vacuum and M.A.S.A.M.U.N.E. style. Bussard style Fuel Scoops, Size 1 and Size 2 varients. Radial space plane fuel scoops, Bussard and atmospheric. More fuel tanks to support the engines. Four Fuel-O-Tron converters, Size 1, 2, & 3, and Mk 2. Example Crafts Custom Sounds Custom FX Current Issues: A few minor bugs I'm working on fixing, otherwise the engines work as it says on the tin. CHANGE LOG 1.0.12: 1.1.2 Compatible, Updated Module Manager Dependency 1.0.11: 1.1 release, updated packaged *.dll plugins (Module Manager, FireSpitter, Smoke Screen).

  20. I really want to know how to decelerate efficient for landing. example, landing to mum, If I decelerate too early, my vessel will drop down, and I have to decelerate again, this will waste some fuel. If I decelerate too late, It's dangerous to crash. so, How to know, what altitude is best to decelerate can save fuel? I see MechJeb didn't have this Item that can display this information. But I use its auto landing function, I see its operation, it's good, very efficient. no more redundant action. But, I don't like auto-operation, I like to control by myself hand
  21. 1.8.9 last big chunk (closed) This mod has been divided into several small submods at the request of many readers and users. Click here to continue: What you get with Contares? All objects are created as accurately as possible on a 50% scale. 50% scale means 1/2 of the size, 1/4 of the thrust, 1/8 of the weight. Further adjustments are due to the physical properties of the Kerbal universe. Reference diameters are 0.3125m, 0.625m, 0.9375m, 1.25m, 1.5m, 1.875m, 2.2m (ESA Parts only), 2.5m, 3.75m and 5.0m. Inquiries regarding diameters are superfluous by the effort of simple head calculations or a calculator. Fuel tanks designed for use with Contares LH2/LOX engines contain significantly less fuel. Fuel tanks which do not contain an entry for LH2/LOX in the description as well as all stock tanks should be set to 30% Liquid Fuel/Oxidizer when combined with Contares LH2/LOX engines. Regarding the arrangement of parts in the techtree there is certainly still much to steer. This work i am glad to leave to ambitious users because i personally have no interest in career or scientific mode.

  22. About: I wanted to create a skybox for another eye-candy oriented game: I had fun creating one with Space Engine, so I decided to make a few more. This is the result. Installation instructions on SpaceDock. NGC 3115 Central Black Hole Album with more images You very rarely see black holes in skyboxes. I decided to give this massive one a shot. This is a real place in the universe: In this skybox, you orbit a star near the Central Black Hole of the galaxy NGC 3115. You can visit it in Space Engine by pressing F3 and searching for the 'Spindle Central Black Hole'. SpaceDock Download Between the Stars This one emphasizes the vast amount of space between the galaxies (Milky Way + Magellanic Clouds). This is a real place in the universe: In this skybox, you orbit a lonely star which ended up in the vast emptiness of space near the Milky Way galaxy. You can visit this place in Space Engine SpaceDock Download SN 1006 Nebula (3 Versions!) Comparision Pics: As colourful isn't everyone's taste, I included the unedited file and a darker one. This is a real place in the universe: In this skybox, you orbit a star in the SN 1006 nebula (the remnants of a supernova inside the Milky Way galaxy). You can visit this place in Space Engine by pressing F3 and searching for SN 1006. SpaceDock Download Large Magellanic Cloud - New! More pictures: This is a nebula inside the Large Magellanic Cloud. (A nebula inside a big nebula, and you can even see the Milky Way from up here!) This is a real place in the universe: In this skybox, you orbit a star in a nebula inside the Large Magellanic Cloud. You can visit this place in Space Engine Also, this one's a bit rushed. Tell me if something's wrong and needs to be changed. SpaceDock Download More Skyboxes Coming Soon I need to find more good scenery; I'm waiting for Space Engine to update to version 0.9.9.0: They are experimenting with volumetric-based nebulas (SO MUCH IMPROVEMENT ) and you can even edit and create your own nebulas!!! In the meantime, I also found out about Spacescape. Now I just need to learn how to use it. You can donate me to buy me coffee so I work faster.

  23. This isn't a suggestion, it's something I'm actually trying to do with a mod pack. The idea is to make a full mod pack that will make the game somewhat playable in VR. Here's what mods I'm putting in: Vivero (VR mod) https://github.com/Vivero/Kerbal-VR RasterProp Monitor (and various plugins to make the MFDs more useful) Through the Eyes (Kerbal EVA first person view) KIS and KAS (to make EVA a little more interesting) I've run into a road block. Vivero ONLY allows you to enable VR when in an IVA... And apparently running the first person mod, and going EVA in first person doesn't count as an IVA. So I'm unable to enable VR while on a first person EVA. It seems like there's possibly a simple fix, maybe a file I could open and edit in notepad, so that Vivero can enable VR regardless of whether or not you're in IVA. But I don't know enough about programming to identify what file I'd have to open, and what edits I'd need to make. If anybody has any experience with modding who could point me in the right direction, I'd really appreciate it. I'm so close to making a proper KSP VR mod pack work.

    Cinematic camera mod

    Hey I want to know what camera control mod is used by YouTubers such as Hazard-ish. Thanks!
  25. We've seen the cockpit and structure mods like Airplane plus、Aviation Cockpit、AoA tech、Quiztech、Nice MKseries Body,and we have the B9 procedural wings and procedural part to make more available room for editing. With the AirplanePlus' raptor engine、the QuizTech's VTOL engines and by editing the .cfg file myself, the thrust system is also not problem. However, even with these classical good mods, during my aircraft building process i still encountered some problems. The biggest ones are: Blended Wing Body、Curved wing edge、Curved(Hook) Surface. And with the famous mods that i already have, i have no idea how to make it better. So i'd like to ask veterans for help, about any mod that possible would be helpful for make the aircraft building closer to the there topics above. 1. The Blended Wing Body (smooth transition between fuselage and wing)is a big problem when we build those gorgeously shaped 3rd-generation fighter jets like Su-27 family、F-16 and more extreme examples like B-2 、Boeing X-48. We can make other jets(like mig21、typhoon) more real (because they have comparatively less smooth transition, like almost a cylinder fuselage with a wing ) by simply using the normal structures and wings parts, and F-22、J-20 can also be real (because the stealth planes all have simpler shape without that much curved lines and surfaces) . But it's really hard to make the transition smooth in su-27 and f-16. 2. The Curved wing edge: First only the WWII planes use elliptical wing like spitfire, and we have some mod for that cute little one. But many other planes also require round tips of the wing, i remember that in the old Procedrual wings(not B9 procedural wing), we have round editable wing, but that mod doesn't seem to fit in KSP1.4.x. I know that this is easier than the blended wing body transition, because by modifying carefully we can make the straight lines together look like smooth line, and that's exactly what i've been doing all the days. However there are some real "monsters", even harder than the SU-27's strake wings, for example, f-18: I tried a lot about f-18's strake wing, and failed. I also tried to search others' good design on the kerbalX, and failed. All of them didn't make the beautiful curves good enough. It seems that straight lines can't be made up to that kind of curve line. 3.Curved(Hook) Surface: Well i know this is too much and hard for KSP, the game's operation principles requires the mod makers themselves to build the 3D model and texture, so making a procedural curved surface is too difficult. But still i'm holding some hope that someone may know any mod with some "hook surface" part or even function. Let's take my old crafts for example, these are almost the limit that i can reach: The blue one's curved lines are made up by many adjusted procedural wings, and when i look closer i feel really unsatisfied. (The J-20's curved line is between the canard and main wing)
