  1. =========================== REMODELED TECH TREE v.0.1.6 =========================== This is a customized Tech Tree designed to remodel the Stock and Community Tech Tree for a more challenging Science game while logically grouping related items into similar Nodes. Some Node titles and the tree structure were changed to reflect areas I felt were deficient or used poorly. Forty-three Mods are currently supported. SpaceDock Link To install, place the GameData folder inside your Kerbal Space Program folder. If asked to overwrite files, do so. Note this Mod does NOT replace any files in other Mods. To uninstall, simply delete the 'zzzRemodeledTechTree' folder and your Tech Tree will revert to as it was before. This mod is only a Tech Tree and related icon files. It requires the correct version of Module Manager for your KSP version to function. It also requires Community Tech Tree as many of the icons used come from that Mod. This only supersedes CTT's tree structure and some names and descriptions. NOTE: Because CTT is a dependency, none of the MM code in this Mod checks for its presence as it is assumed. Failure to install CTT with this Mod will result in a massive number of errors. Grounded is no longer a dependency by way of introducing two new parts to the game if you don't have Grounded installed... a Prototype QBE (2x the size, 20x the weight, 20x the EC requirement, 50km range for the internal antenna, and no SAS) and Prototype Z-10 battery. (same size and weight as the Z-100 but 1/10th the power) Both are made obsolete once you research Physics & Chemistry. COMMUNITY TECH TREE AND MODULE MANAGER ARE BOTH REQUIREMENTS TO USE THIS MOD! Additionally, it requires the Mods to support it for their parts to be added. I have included definitions only for those Mods I use frequently. If you wish to adapt this Mod for use with your own preferred Mods, simply add your own Module Manager re-definition lines for the parts you wish to move around the Tech Tree. Since I did not change the internal ID designations of any existing CTT or Stock nodes, unsupported Mods will still populate within the tree, just in odd places that may not make any sense given what parts are already there. DLC NOTE: This Mod has NOT been balanced against either the Making History or Breaking Ground DLC and those parts, while still present in the tech tree, have not been moved to their corrected nodes. Unfortunately, short of me getting money from somewhere unexpected or someone providing me the internal CFGs of all the parts included in both packs, this will not be fixed any time soon. List of 43 currently supported Mods: (all working under KSP v.1.7.3) Aircraft Carrier Accessories v.1.5.1 AirplanePlus v.26.1 AlphaMensaes Modular Launch Pads v.2.0.4 AmpYear v. AviationLights v.4.0.8 BonVoyage v.0.5.3 Cormorant Aeronology v.1.5.1 Cormorant Aeronology - Mk3 Block II v.0.2 DeepFreeze v. Extraplanetary Launchpads v.6.6.1 FASA v.7.2.5 Feline Utility Rovers v.1.2.10 Firespitter v.7.13 Firespitter Extended Version 1 Grounded - Modular Vehicles v.5.0 HeatControl v.0.4.12 Heisenberg Airship Parts Pack v.2.16.1 Hooligan Labs Airships v.6.3.1 HullcamVDS Continued v.0.1.13 InfernalRobotics - Next v.3.0.2 IR Sequencer v.3.0.1_KSP_1.6 Its the little things v.2 KAS v.1.4 Kerbal Planetary Base Systems v.1.6.9 KIS v.1.22 KSP SDHI Strobeomatic v.1.0.1 Mandatory RCS Part Pack v.1.4_KSP1.7 MOARdVPlus v.1.0.0 Near Future Propulsion v.1.1.1 Near Future Solar v.1.0.4 OPT Spaceplane Parts (Lagacy) v.1.4.0 OPT Reconfig v.1.6.1 PEBKAC Industries Launch Escape System v. RasterPropMonitor v.0.30.6 RecycledParts-1.7.2 v.0.1.7 RN Skylab v.1.8.3 SCANsat v.18.13 SEP v.2.7.1 SmartParts v. Station Parts Expansion Redux v.1.2.1 SurfaceLights v.1.13 TacLifeSupport v.0.13.13 Note that dependencies for these Mods such as Community Resource Pack and others are not listed, nor are supported partless Mods like TweakScale or EVE. The issue regarding the Recycled Parts Mod has been fixed and is working correctly, so no action is required on this now. Likewise, BonVoyage is now fixed so the upgrades are moved to their correct nodes. Labs have also been re-balanced against one another to have a more realistic progression. (more advanced Labs yield more/less Science per point, use less power, operate faster, etc.) Mobile Processing Lab (Squad) - Unchanged. All other Labs are noted relative to the Stock lab. Manned Orbital Lab (FASA) - Heavier, Higher Science Cap, Faster Data Processing Rate (DPR), Higher EC/s usage GondoLab (Heisenberg Airship) - Lighter, Portable, Lower Data Storage and Science Cap, Faster DPR, Higher EC/s use, Only 2-to-1 Science conversion Big "G" Science Bay (FASA) - Lighter, Lower Data Storage and Science Cap, Faster DPR, Higher EC/s usage, Only 3-to-1 Science conversion SPT-7 "Iglet" (Cormorant Aeronology) - Lighter, Lower Data Storage and Science Cap, Faster DPR, Lower EC/s usage, Only 4-to-1 Science conversion SPB-HUGE-3 Science Bay (Recycled Parts / R&S CAPSULDYNE) - Heavier, Higher Data and Science Cap, Faster DPR, Higher EC/s, 6-to-1 Science conversion Lynx Mobile Lab (Feline Utility Rover) - Lighter, Lower Data Storage and Science Cap, Much lower EC/s usage, Only 4-to-1 Science conversion SPT-14 "Igloo" (Cormorant Aeronology) - Heavier, Faster DPR, Much lower EC/s usage 'Stail' Mobile Processing Lab (OPT Legacy) - Heavier, Higher Data and Science Cap, Much lower EC/s usage, 6-to-1 Science conversion PXL-2 'Fate' D-S Lab Module (Station Parts Expansion Redux) - Heavier, Higher Data & Science Cap, Lower EC/s usage, 3x DPR, 6-to-1 Science conversion Planetary Lab (Kerbal Planetary Base Systems) - 2x DPR, Much lower EC/s usage, 7-to-1 Science conversion Planetary Central Hub (Kerbal Planetary Base Systems) - Heavier, Lower Data & Science Cap, 2x DPR, Much lower EC/s usage, Only 4-to-1 Science conversion While the later labs may seem to be sort of OP, they are so far down the Tech Tree that by the time you get them you're going to NEED them as each Node starts to cost tens of thousands of Science each. (just getting the Fate lab requires at minimum 2,000 Science to unlock, not to mention the additional science needed to actually put it in orbit, which can be thousands of Science more) ====== EXTRAS ====== Within the RTT_MM_QOL_Mods.cfg file are several tweaks for some Mods that are put there for game balance purposes, but also some Quality of Life improvements to some parts. For an example of modification for game balance is the creation of 'soft dependencies' on some technologies that could otherwise be reached without following a logical path to get them. (such as removing the fuel from the K&K Nuclear Reactor and Centrifuge so you can't actually USE them without having researched the Nuclear Fuel Systems node, etc.) An example of one of the QOL modifications, if you have TAC Life Support installed, you'll note the addition of three new Containers and three new Hexcans to add Wastewater, Waste, and CO2 only containment for specialized uses. Also, if you also have TweakScale AND TACLS installed, this Mod hides the duplicate Containers and Hexcans for larger/smaller sizes, reducing build menu clutter. I also have implemented a new mechanic for handing entryCost to be equal to 3x part cost for all parts. (Extraplanetary Launchpads is excluded from this mechanic as it causes numerous errors. (known issue with this Mod) I have included a customized version of the Community Tech Tree PNG file that has been completed and corrected for this Mod to easily show the remodeled tree structure outside of the game. It uses the same style and branching as the CTT version. (as a bonus, I have included a completed copy of the CTT tree PNG due to the fact that the one on the CTT page is incomplete and outdated in some places) I have also included the XLS file that I created to quickly restructure the tree to my own tastes. You can open it in most any spreadsheet program (Excel, OpenOffice, etc.) and are free to use it to add additional Nodes, delete ones you don't like, alter the Science cost progression, or redefine Parent Nodes to your liking. It saved me quite a lot of work by putting everything on one page that I could search, edit, and modify in minutes rather than hours. NOTE: This file does NOT go in the KSP directory structure. Place it wherever you like for easy access or if you don't intend to use it, simply leave it in the ZIP file. To use the spreadsheet, simply make the changes to the tree as you like on the 'Custom Tree' tab. You can review Node positions (though not branching) using the 'New Tree' tab to see the relative positions of your nodes. Finally you can use the 'Tech Tree Output' tab to copy-paste a completely new tree into a CFG file. The 'Unmodified Table' tab shows the default tech tree using the same format as the 'Custom Tree' tab for reference and the 'Old Tree' tab shows the default Node positions. I have not yet incorporated a tab to quickly edit the parts that populate within each node. (WIP) ============ LOCALIZATION ============ This mod does not include localization support, and includes translations for English only. Since it erases the Stock and CTT titles and descriptions, existing Tech Tree Localization with those Mods are discarded. If anyone wants Localization support, provide me with translations for each tech node and I will try to add it at some point. ===== NOTES ===== I know it is not a 'best practice' to use FINAL directives in a distributed Mod, but since I need this tree structure to supersede tree modifications made by other Mods (i.e. OPT, Modular Launch Pads, Recycled Parts, etc.) and cannot predict what future Mods may include Tech Tree re-definitions, I have employed the FINAL directive to ensure that all Techtree node operations are run BEFORE this mod, then deleted, and finally replaced with the desired tree structure. The same applies to PART operations. (though I have included at least one FOR directive to properly index this Mod with Module Manager) I have no intentions of altering this behavior. If you don't like it, feel free to change it in your own copy, but note that I will NOT provide support for installs that do not use the FINAL directive as I cannot predict what interactions any given Mod may have on the tree structure and PART locations after this Mod has been initialized. Though Modular Launch Pads is not required for this Mod, the tree structure has been altered to include and fully incorporate the Tech Nodes of that Mod. Since it just used Stock icons, and I have subsequently replaced those with my own, no resources from that Mod are used or required. Lastly, for those wanting to make changes to this Mod to suit their own style, I have included EVERY part (to the best of my ability) in the listed Mods within the RTT_MM_Part_Configs.cfg file, even if I didn't move it to a new node. In this way, so long as you know the internal name of the part you want to move, you can just search for it and do a cut-paste to its new node. Soon (hopefully) I will have this all automated and you'll be able to use the XLS file to restructure your parts within the Tech Tree to your liking using the XLS file and simply copy-paste the new part definitions from the spreadsheet. (I know that using a spreadsheet for this purpose is unusual and it would be better to just write an actual program to create the CFG files for you, but I'm a wife and mother and don't have time to code out a full program... and an XLS spreadsheet works and was quicker to make, so... there it is!) ========================= LICENSING CC-BY-NC-SA-4.0 ========================= The contents of this pack are distributed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License ( You are free to share and adapt the materials only for non-commercial purposes and when providing appropriate attribution.

  3. This mod is a Module Manager config which add Tweakscale support to every modded part that doesn't have Tweakscale configs yet. Requires: Tweakscale and Module Manager: Downloads: : Supported Spacedock Github Suggestions and Feedback are appreciated. Enjoy!!! Changelog License: MIT Credit goes to :@Lisias too for giving me some inspiration and help!! This would not be possible without him!! Thanks a lot Lisias!! Note: All Tweak works fine with the new Breaking Ground DLC (Robotics).
  4. Collection of exampels for module manager "Why do I have to perform some experiments multiple times at the same location to max out my sciencegain?" When I asked me this question the Xth time, I started looking arround for a solution, and I found it: module manager. This neat little "plugin" allows you to write custom patches to change the behaviour of parts and some mechanics of KSP. With the help of the official Handbook I figured out a way to achieve my goal: Now, even this is a verry simple patch, it took me quite a while and some help from the community to figure it all out. So I thought for people like me I just post a few things I've done so far and just hope some others do the same to help everyone who wants to learn how to make custom patches. Here is another thing I did: If you need some help finding ideas or a parts name here are 2 usefull links: A basic one Click Me! and a more detailed, advanced one Click Me! It would be nice to see some things other people have done since thats what I'm looking for. So if you have something please share it (doesn't have to be a rainbow like mine) So the "rainbowthing" might have been a bit too much. However: IF you like to post some patches (and I hope you do) please do it in the following format: Give the thing a title, make that title bold and and set the font size to 16, then make a spoiler and put the code inside the spoiler. Awsome Example:

  6. As the title suggests I tried installing Modular Kolonization Systems and Life Support by Umbra Space Industries yesterday, but for some reason some parts didn't show up in the VAB but they were there when I looked in the folder. So I tried uninstalling mods and reinstalling them to see which one was the culprit and apparently it was ReStock and Restock+. I don't know what causes this problem maybe a patch from Module Manager I don't know. If anyone has any input or any ideas so I can have all of these mods work together please let me know.
  7. I want to write some Module Manager patch files for a 1.7.3 install that includes both Kopernicus, Bluedog Design Bureau, and Unkerballed Start. This install has well over 20k+ Module Manager patches applied - trying to read the individual config files for a part and individual part patches is proving to be a real headache. I'm wondering if there is a way to view / export what the part's config file looks like AFTER all of the MM patches have been applied. I want to be able to select a part, see what MODULES have been added / applied, then write my own config to do the final tweaking. Ideas?
  8. Almost Free Launch Clamps (AFLC) Recently, I have heard a few people grumbling about how launch clamps add to your total mass and cost of your vessel in the VAB, sometimes resulting in not having enough funds, or being overweight. "Their mass ony equals 0.1, so how can it make you overwieght?" I've seent it! Dont question me. After discussing with many experts, colleagues and kerbals, we have come to the conclusion that launch clamps should be free and not count toward your total mass or launch costs. Some mass is required to avoid physics issues and game crashes, so a mass of 0.1 has been given to all launch clamps. Anyway, ALFC makes launch clamps free. Kinda. Its up to how you play really. If you play with "entry purchases required", you will only pay the entry fee. Guys old enough to go to the club should be used to this by now. Entry prices have been raised to balance out the "free" effect with this mod. If you don't play with "no entry purchases" It's free. ALWAYS. Pretty lame. Its not hard to imagine that the launch clamps are reusable, and should technically be a part of the launch pad. We shouldn't have to continuously pay for a new set each time we launch! Functionality: Launch clamps capable of transfering fuel to the vessel can do so on the launch pad. Right click on the clamp and select "Fuel On" to begin fueling your vessel. This can be considered cheaty, but I'll tell you anyway. Draining the tanks in the VAB results in huge launch cost savings and fueling up on the launch pad is free, but its immersive in the fact that you have to sit and wait for you tanks to fill up. This mod is compatible with: Stock launch clamps (duh) FASA Launch Clamps: HERE Bluedog Design Bureau SpaceY Lifter Pack Community Resource Pack If there are others that you want patched, you will have to let me know To install: Just drop the AFLC folder and ModuleManager.dll into your GameData folder DOWNLOAD Public Domain
  9. Want to have MechJeb embedded in your ships? Don't like the MechJeb parts? Then I present to you MechJeb Embedded Universal, Now With Career mode support! It has two modes: "Career mode" if you want career mode support, you'll have to go to R&D to unlock modules. "It's Free!" if you want not to go to the R&D to unlock modules, they'll be enabled from the start. This version uses ModuleManager (included 4.0.2) to provide functionality. It does not change your files, it justs appends the MechJeb core at the time of execution. This does not add MechJeb functionality, it just adds the MechJeb module to the command modules. That means that you don't have to manually add MechJeb while building your ship, it will come embedded on the command module (not physically, but in the code). (You can get MechJeb here: I take no responsability for what you do to your game (Works on 0.23, all the way thru 1.7.2, you need to have the proper ModuleManager Plug in I included the latest one for convenience) This addon is licensed under the GPL v3, and includes Module Manager by sarbian, swamp_ig, and ialdabaoth, which is licensed CC-BY-SA, forum link here: Module Manager Version 4.0.2 I have no relation to the guys behind MechJeb nor Module Manager, I would like to say thanks to them, and guys, keep up the good job!

  10. Moderators: Sorry if this is in the wrong place! Please move it to the right subforum or merge it with the Module Manager thread if necessary. Anyway, I've been having this issue with the 2.5m monoprop tank since 1.4 arrived: I figure it's possible to fix it using a Module Manager patch, but I have no idea how to write MM patches. I feel like this small issue is a good way to learn how to write them, so how exactly would I do it? (By the way, in the image above, I believe the tank is using the new texture on the old model, if that helps.) Thanks in advance
  11. TANKS, BUT NO TANKS Download: Spacedock No clutter! Clean out your parts list in the editor so you can find the parts you want! A Module Manager config to hide stock tanks when you have other options available. In flight craft should not be affected. Does not prevent textures from loading, so other parts that rely on the textures will not be affected. Removes 1.25m, 2.5m, 3.75m LF/O tanks and inline monopropellant tanks. Does not affect radial, spaceplane, or other "fancy" tanks. Dependency Module Manager (Not included) Recommended These mods add more versatile parts to replace the stock tanks. SSTU Procedural Parts Kerbal Stock Launcher Overhaul Future Plans Add support for mods such as Lack's SXT which add lots of great parts but also have fuel tanks that are not needed. Please suggest other mods to add. License: Unlicense
  12. Procedural Start This is a simple set of MM configs that make all the parts and sizes from Procedural Parts available from the start of game. Kinda cheaty, but fun!

  13. So I'm trying to use Module Manager to suppress smoke exhaust effects from engines in atmosphere, as well as surface jet blast. Both of those grind my system to a near halt while flying in atmosphere. Here's what I've cobbled together, but I'm not a code guru so I have no idea if the syntax is right. Can some of you guys check me here and/or offer ways to do this better? Basically I don't want big puffy clouds of smoke behind my jet/prop/rotor/fan engines in the atmosphere, and I absolutely don't want downwash kicking up dust from the surface - both of which are major performance killers for me. Here's what I've got: @PART[*]:HAS[@MODULE[ModuleEngines]] { -fx_smokeTrail_light -fx_smokeTrail_medium } @PART[*]:HAS[@MODULE[ModuleSurfaceFX]] { @maxDistance = 1 } Or how about this... @PART[*]:HAS[@MODULE[ModuleEnginesFX]] { @EFFECTS { @PREFAB_PARTICLE:HAS[#prefabName[fx_smokeTrail_light|fx_smokeTrail_medium]] { @emission,* = 0.0 0.0 } } } @PART[*]:HAS[@MODULE[ModuleEngines]] { -fx_smokeTrail_light -fx_smokeTrail_medium } @PART[*]:HAS[@MODULE[ModuleSurfaceFX]] { @maxDistance = 1 } Yes? No? Help me out, oh coding masters. Thanks!
  14. This is an fairly simple issue, labs can only store 500 science, with high level scientists they will fill up the 500 in less than an month. To reduce number of interupts during long interplanetary missions I thought to increase the science storage to 2000, this would let the lab run longer. However I have no idea how to work with module manager, even if this should be an very simple script. Any guides or tips or samples?
  15. Sorry to be bombarding this forum with questions, but I've got another one. This one is pretty straightforward, but I can't for the life of me figure it out. How do you patch an MM value with an exponent? e.g. If I want to multiply a value, I write: @value *= (a number) But how do I do that for an exponential value? Basically, I'm still trying to write a config that scales all parts up by a factor of 2. So, rescaleFactor = 2, but that means values like mass, volume and resource amounts need to be scaled up by a factor of 3. I'm not sure how to tell Module Manager to do this. Would it work to write something like: @value = #value*#value*#value I really am very new to this!
  16. Stock Part Fixes For a long time I wasn't happy with attributes of some parts that nearly prohibite us to use them. So I compiled some inconsitencies and created some Module Manager scripts to change the data. Here is the "Suggestion topic" This is not really a mod, but a script which will need Module Manager, which you can find here Download the mod (ZIP) This zip contains 3 files Consistency fixes : it'll fix many mass and few temperatures inconsitencies. It also add 50RCS to the inline docking port and extend the interaction range of Goo experiment and Lab Jr. Science changes : increase mass of many experiments, size Atmo scan and narowband to match goo canister size and mass. Only small experiments keeps their physicless atribute. ISRU are also more heavy. Delete this file if you don't like it Dubious changes : Basic fin has be buffed to a real fin and Airbrake is now more resistant. Those 2 modifications may change the game play, so delete this file if you don't like that. Feed back is very much appreciated. Further more, I would like to change some data on drag for some parts, but I don't know how to do it. Science rescale (atmo sensor and narrowband scanner) Inconsistency fixes details Science changes details Dubious changes details
  17. I'm trying to make a Juno engine's contrail look like that of a Kickback SRB. Here's what I've got so far - //This is a cosmetic patch. It does nothing but change how the game looks. In this case, it adds a ridiculous afterburner effect to the Juno jet engine. Hilarious. @PART[miniJet] { EFFECTS { running_thrust { PREFAB_PARTICLE { prefabName = fx_smokeTrail_veryLarge transformName = thrustTransform emission = 0.0 0.0 emission = 0.05 0.0 emission = 0.075 0.25 emission = 1.0 1.25 speed = 0.0 0.25 speed = 1.0 1.0 localOffset = 0, 0, 1 } MODEL_MULTI_PARTICLE { modelName = Squad/FX/SRB_Large transformName = thrustTransform emission = 0.0 0.0 emission = 0.05 0.0 emission = 0.075 0.25 emission = 1.0 1.25 speed = 0.0 0.5 speed = 1.0 1.2 } MODEL_PARTICLE { modelName = Squad/FX/SRB_LargeSparks transformName = thrustTransform emission = 0.0 0.0 emission = 0.05 0.0 emission = 0.075 0.25 emission = 1.0 1.25 speed = 0.0 0.5 speed = 1.0 1.2 } } } }
  18. I would like to know how I should make a MM patch to make some Non RO parts tagged as RO. I tried with this method but It didn't work. The mod (at the moment , I'll do more RO patches in future for other mods) is NEBULA DECALS. Thank you for your help!
  19. I feel like this could be done with a simple patch but I really don't know how to use MM. Is there anybody who can enlight me about this ? Thanks in advance
  20. Hi guys, I've not played KSP for a while and i'm starting again with what mods i use. One thing i've noticed adding a bunch of mods at once is that the module manager .dll is duplicated a lot. Should i let these duplicate with (1),(2),etc or overwrite? I'm assuming duplicate as I overwrote them last night and some mods didn't activate in game. Bonus question: Why do some modders leave the 'game data' folder in the zip file when you have to move the mod into your own game data folder?
  21. Here are the following mods that installed correctly: -DMP -Hyperedit -Module Manager The others, Mech Jeb, and Kramax Autopilot didn't. I see absolutely no resemblance of them even being installed. Below is a "TREE" of my KSP folder if you need it
  22. I am writing a module config, which replaces the stock Ablator resource with a more realistic one. I got it to replace the resource with the new one, but the new one does not ablate upon reentry. Can anyone tell me what code I'm missing? Link:Realistic Heat Managment Edit: @TheRagingIrishman, thanks for explaining the problem. @Benjamin Kerman, the current numbers are just placeholders for later.
  23. I've made plenty of stable and meta-stable rockets with stock fuel flow in my time, but while attempting a fully reusable career play-through I decided that this particular mechanic had to go. I'm aware of the workarounds using fuel pumps, tank locking, and even the TankLock mod being maintained by the illustrious linuxgurugamer: However, what I would really like is for rocket engines to just behave like jet engines, having the "resourceFlowMode = STAGE_STACK_FLOW_BALANCE" property which causes fuel to drain evenly from all of the tanks in the current stage. To that end I made a Module Manager patch with the following text: This should change the resource flow mode to the desired mode in all engines which use ModuleEngines or ModuleEnginesFX (every rocket and jet engine I've inspected the .cfg of), but it had no effect for me. I've only ever seen resourceFlowMode defined for jet engines (ModuleEnginesFX), and it's always defined as "STAGE_STACK_FLOW_BALANCE". Is this node simply not implemented for ModuleEngines, or have I made a silly mistake in my Module Manager syntax? Thank you.
  24. Hi I'm trying to write the config for the planet through Мodule Manager , I wanted to change the name and description of the planet (only from mods!), but my experiments did not help, I need guides on patching PLANETS I found, I can tell you what has to be done in the config. Thansk.
  25. Hi. I've been trying to replace a texture on @raidernick's Huygens probe with one I edited in GIMP. It's saved as a .dds, though strangely it's five times the size of the original skin, and the edit is just the ESA logo replaced with the NASA logo. I have tried to use Module Manager to perform the texture swap, but nothing I tried work. The texture that the game used would always be the default one. My last MM file looks like this: @PART[rn_huygens]:FOR[RN_US_Probes] { @MODEL { %texture = huygens_main, RN_US_Probes/Cassini/huygens_main_NASA } } I'm not at all familiar with Module Manager, but I did read the tutorial. Tried to use no symbol in front of the texture line and then tried the %, but neither worked. Today, I tried renaming my texture file to the one the game uses. What I got was a Huygens probe that was grey. I'm overall unsure exactly what the problem is since I don't know enough about texturing and Module Management to troubleshoot further reliably with a major time investment. I will likely continue to work at the problem myself, but I feel I'm just missing something simple that a more experienced modder would see in an instant such as a syntax error or misuse of Module Manager config files. If anyone can give me some feedback, I would be really appreciative of that. Overall, I wonder if either my .dds is too large (5.4MB vs 1.3MB for the original file), or my MM file is trying to find the wrong part.
