  1. I am pretty new in the modding community and i couldnt find good tutorials for making IVA's. The only thing i know is that you need a model for the outside and one for the inside. What would interest me is : - How do you make the inside - How do you manage it in Unity (parenting etc.) - What cfg scripts do you need - How do you integrate mods like [JSI/A.S.E.T/MAS/NearFutureProps] It would help if you could make a tutorial like this I know there are some guides on how to do it on the forum but they are either very old or just confusing. Thank you for your help IceTitan
  2. I've looked through the forum and found no complete guides or tutorials about how to make solar panels in KSP. There are some bits of knowledge here and there but no complete tutorial and most of them seem to be obsolete. Hence my question. From start to finish, how do you guys create your deployable, non deployable, suntracking and static solar panels? Do you animate the deploy animation in 3d modelling software or do you do it in Unity Editor and do you need a specifically named animation or set up pivots/bones in specific places for it to work with KSP? Do you have to name each part of the solar panel in certain way? Do you have to parent them to specific gameObjects for it to work? Which direction should solar catching parts face to face the sun? Which direction should hinge parts face or how should they be named to only rotate around desired axis? Can you specify a maximum angle for a hinge? What I'm trying to do is create a deployable solar panel that's meant to be used on ground. It would work and look similarly to solar panels in the game Surviving Mars. I'll post some pics after I get it to work, hopefully PS. First post on new forums hype!
  3. I am interested in creating a mod. I want to to create a part/ parts pack mod and a contract mod. i have heard that it is best to start with contract configurator when starting with modding. I would like to know the best tips and tricks on starting with modding.
  4. Creating new fx?

    I want to create new FX (like rocket flames), but I don't know how. Can I use GIMP? Is there a specific file format I need to use?
  5. You know how when you place a decoupler on the bottom of an engine, a fairing shows up around it? Well, as the title says, an engine in a mod I'm making shows the engine fairing in the preview. When I use the part without a decoupler, the engine displays like I want it to. How do I hide the faring in the preview? P.S. Should I just say what my mod is about? I was planing to keep it a secret so it could be more of a surprise. However, if it's a hindrance to keep it a secret, I can say what the mod is about.
  6. I'm having trouble with the new parachutes. They're great and fun to use, but I want to deploy them without right-clicking on my kerbal. So I took to the code. I searched the landing gear, lights, and RCS-related parts and couldn't find anything related to action groups. So how do you set them? I know it's possible to assign action groups and staging to kerbals, just get in an EVA seat. I know next to nothing about this stuff, so a video tutorial would probably help the most but I'll take any help I can get.
  7. I'm making a mod that adds modern realistic weapons such as the Avenger II GAU from the American A-10 Fairchild [not all that fair irl, you hear the shell impact before the gun] muzzle velocity aside I neee help with models and animation I'm skilled in neither [i can animate with things I've drawn] however this is very different. I also need to know how the hell you can read .mu files. Cya, KenjiKrafts
  8. I got enhanced edition the day it came out and I've been loving it, but I've been wondering is it possible to maybe get mod support for KSP on Xbox/PS4? Thanks!

  10. Hey Guys, I just installed a ton of mods today (i will make a list with the mods if anyone want). But im wondering how the tech tree will be filled with the inofficial modded parts. i know mods like Community Tech Tree and others but is it guaranteed that EVERY modded part is Correct implemented in the tech tree? sometimes i think the parts that are not implemented in the tech tree are just not available in the career mode. Can anyone give me an answer about that? And sorry for possible english mistakes. its not my main language
  11. 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}
  12. I have tried so many times modding ksp in the past two years with BD armory, mech jeb, and other mods, but its never worked, no matter how many times I have watched videos, I have not a clue how to do it right. I do not know if there is any automatic installers, but I downloaded Ksp from the Ksp website. Can someone help me learn how to mod manualally?
  13. This is my CFG, and I need a down-facing node. No matter how much I try, the node doesn't want to face downward: @CobaltWolf @Beale Maybe you could help?
  14. Hey guys, so I try to add a few parts to KSP for fun. It all works great but now that I want to add a bumpy texture I run into an issue. It works in Blender and Unity but is very bright and flickering in KSP (The control thing up top). I generate a normal map from a bump map in Unity and as mention it works well inside the Unity editor as you can see below. The texture I use besides the normal map is just the regular on is use for the other parts aswell. Maybe that's the problem? I read another forum post where somebody said I would need to somehow mix the specular and the color texture into one? I'm not sure what that means. Thanks for your help! The Solution: Somehow the Unity internal Normal map generator from greyscale images doesn't work well with KSP. I downloaded the software xNormal and it works flawlessly when I generate normal maps with it. What a pain that was.. Nope, I changed two things at once and the real reason it didn't work before was I exported my textures to TGA files. THat works on regular textures but bump maps apperently go wild using these. Using MBM as a texture format works!
  15. KSP (Random Things)

    Random Stuff to talk about. Tip : When hosting battles in KSP with BD Download the mod, burning together, It can make setting up battlees way quicker!

  17. I apologize ahead of time if this is the wrong forum section, however I see nothing that would fit this better. Im trying to get into modding so through very loosely following the wikipedia guide to parts and a few other video tutorials ive reached the point where I have a textured model made in blender (Its a single part count landing gear unit because its something ive always wanted and the only one ive seen was a helicopter skid), but now Im unsure of the steps between here and the game. Small note: There are 3 simpler models over the main 3 wheels and body for collision models, which arent visible in the video. The scale is also reasonably sized for 1.25 parts though hopefully I can make this tweakscale compatible as well. Following this guide I know how to export it into a fashion where it can be seen in game, but Im a bit lost past that with regards to getting the animations to work in game/setting up the configuration file to activate them, setting node locations and there really arent any start to finish guides that explain this that ive found. Any help would be appreciated, particularly if there is a video explaining this, or perhaps just an explanation of modules and their interactions with animations along with what modules do perhaps.
  18. How can I make 3.125 m parts in Blender? The radius would have more decimal places than Blender can handle. Does anyone have a solution?
  19. So, I'm attempting to combine two engines in my mod into one with a mode for each engine, like the Afterburning Turbofan. However, I'm confused at what I have to do, even after looking into stock CFGs with multiple modes. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks!
  20. Hi, I've been working on an engine mod, and I would like to know how I would change the animation of the Mainsail engine exhaust to that of the ion engine exhaust. I would also like to know if I can scale up the animation to fit the 2.5m part. Thanks!
  21. I want to make a modular engine mod. The idea is to add a group of parts made up of engine nozzles, combustion chambers, engine base plates, and some other engine parts which function as one engine when assembled. I know how to model and add new parts to the game, but I need help with getting the "combined engine" functionality working, hopefully without adding/coding plugins. Also, tips on texturing will help. Thanks for reading!
  22. The stock of engines and other parts available to me in my build of KSP RSS RO RP-0 (still 1.1.3, can anyone help me out here?) has become boring. Engine mods provide many of the real engines, but more obscure engines (e.g. the HM4, MGM-5 Corporal engine, Wasserfall engine, AJ-260, et cetera) are nowhere to be found, and I want to make fictional engines for my spaceflight-related fictional universes and alternate histories (like engines burning supercooled 100% ethanol and liquid oxygen, hydrofluor, et cetera). I am also bored of the non-editable historical probes, thermophobic RCS, and the lack of generic heat shields beyond Lunar-rated, though not as much as I am about the engines. I have no intention (currently…) to develop mods for other people. I also have no intention to create new models, animations, plumes, or sound effects, just to use those already in existence scaled according to size.
  23. Hi guys! Recently i started on moddeling and im working on a version of the Altair Lander and Orion Spacecraft. Yes, i know that there's wonderfull mods with those, but i wanted something more stockalike and updated (for me, BobCat's the king and his versions is the best, but outdated and need some work to fit with the new versions and look on game). Said that, i started my own project but i dont know how to make the texture and action to change the windows color "turning the lights on" like other parts on game... Didnt found any tutorial either... Can anyone give me some tips? Thank you! Gabu
  24. Ive been trying to install all the Near Future mods, in addition to cryo rockets, kerbal atomics, and a few other mods by Nertea. With near future propulsion, engines show, but none of the fuel or fuel tanks that accompany. Some of them show while loading, but i can't find them at in the game. Please help
  25. So as GTA V fans have probably heard by now, Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar, the people who make GTA have sent a cease and desist letter to the creators of Open IV. Open IV is the biggest mod support... ummm... thing for GTA V. It's more or less the Module Manager of GTA. KSP was just acquired by Take-Two, so are we next? Let's make sure we aren't!
