  1. Shadow Space Technologies Unlimited - Labs Division This is the public discussion thread for ongoing development of SSTU parts and plugin code. Downloads: The latest test versions may be found at: http://www.curse.com/ksp-mods/kerbal/241283-sstu-shadow-space-technologies-unlimited And are also available on Github: https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/releases (Github will always be more up-to-date than curse, as they are auto-published there; I have to manually update Curse; so please check the GitHub link if you are looking for the latest versions) Please keep in mind that these are all testing releases. Things may break between releases. There will be bugs. Many things are unfinished and/or unoptimized. The test versions are for ironing out bugs in new features and for testing out prototype parts before they are finished; as such they will always have bugs, often severe, and there will often be unfinished parts (no textures, missing features, etc). Please only use these versions if you wish to contribute to testing and are comfortable with the state of the releases. Additional Parts / configs (by @JoseEduardo) Wiki (WIP): https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/wiki Contribution: IVA Modeling: SSTU could greatly use someone with interest and experience in modeling IVAs. If you think you are that person, please contact Shadowmage through PM to work out the details. Testing: If you would like to contribute to pre-release testing (and get to try things out in their pre-release state), please follow the link above; the most recent test version will be at the top. Please submit issue reports for any problems you encounter via the GitHub issues tracker: https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/issues (If you do not report the issue there, it will not be resolved; issues posted in the thread or through PMs will be forgotten about and likely never fixed; so please, do the organized thing and use the bug-tracker). Configs/Patches: I welcome pull requests and contributions for adding patches for mod compatibility, adding new part configs, or fixing issues in existing part configs. Documentation: One very major part of the mod that could greatly benefit from public contributions is the Wiki: https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/wiki While this is the 'dev version' wiki, I will be using it to form the basis of the public release wiki; so any/all information and details that can be filled in now will be transferred over to the public release repository and wiki when it is created. Feedback, suggestions, comments, etc: Please feel free to post feedback, suggestions, questions, etc regarding development releases and/or any posted previews. Even if you are not on the testing team, I still value your feedback and suggestions. Please use the issue tracker for any 'official' feature requests; it may be found at: https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/issues Bug Reports: Please submit issue reports for any problems you encounter via the GitHub issues tracker: https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/issues. No other method for submitting bugs will be supported; posts on the forum or through PM will be forgotten about before I can ever get to them. Opening up a ticket ensures that your report does not get lost in the forum or forgotten about. No ticket = no fix. Enough with the disclaimers, and onto the parts! The Parts: The goal of SSTU is to provide low-part count, CPU-efficient parts for common uses. To this end many of the parts are designed with additional integrated functionality beyond the base functions, for instance integrating RCS ports and engine(s) into a fully fledged service module. I have tried to maintain a stock-compatible appearance, though as I am not an artist or modeler (at least not by training/profession), how well this has worked out is subject to opinion. Master list of parts; current, planned, the whole lot: https://github.com/shadowmage45/SSTULabs/wiki/Parts---Master-List Ship Core: Engines A set of engines in many varieties, including pre-built engine clusters. Many more engines, mounting options, and cluster designs will be added over time. Ship Core: Series A A set of parts modeled after the Soyuz CSM stack. Includes Orbital Module, Descent Module, Service Module, and LAS. Ship Core: Series B A set of parts modeled after the Apollo CSM stack. Includes two command modules (one with integrated heatshield and parachutes), launch abort system, and Apollo-inspired service module. Ship Core: Series C A series of parts heavily inspired by and based on current NASA - SLS project. Includes representations of SLS upper stack initial configuration, and lifter parts designed in the vein of the lower/core portions. The upper stack is designed to allow for a low-part-count manned orbiter setup, while the lower-stack parts are intended for super-heavy-lift capabilities. Command module and upper-stack are 3.75m, while the lower-stack lifter parts are 5m. Ship Core: General A line of generic / utility parts. Fairings, RCS, Science experiments, and procedural decouplers of various types. Includes a full line of configurable/dynamic fuel tank parts in standard cylinder, sphere, R-7 booster (integrated decoupler), and upper-stage (integrated rcs) form factors. Includes a full set of truss based cargo bay modules. Also includes a full line of interstage fairings and petal adapters, and standard payload fairings. (Many parts not shown in album) Lander Core A series of parts specially crafted to enable low-part-count non-atmospheric lander designs for use in the stock Kerbol system. Station Core A line parts for low-part-count station use. Includes inflatable Bigelow-inspired inflatable modules, inflatable centrifuge modules, ISS inspired habitat and lab modules, and a line of TKS/DOS inspired single-part station cores (integrated solar, engines, rcs, docking ports, sas). Also includes a full line of stand-alone solar panels and a 'welding' docking port. (Album not yet available) Craft Files None currently available, will possibly start becoming available when the mod has reached a stable state (not for the foreseeable future). Additional Addon Compatibility and Integration RealPlume -- Optional but highly recommended. SSTU includes a set of patches for RealPlume for all engines as well as most other engine-enabled parts. More will be added over time. Stock effects are also included, but options and configuration for those are much more limited. If you want pretty-looking exhaust effects, get RealPlume. MechJeb -- If MechJeb2 is installed, Command Pods (and some service modules) include a built-in MJ module. The tech-unlocks for these are based on the default MJ tech-settings. Kerbal Joint Reinforcement -- As of KSP 1.2+, KRJ is no longer necessary, as the stock Auto-Struts can eliminate most of the wobbles. Might still have utility on extremely large craft designs, but should no longer be nearly-mandatory. USI-LS -- Patches for most parts are included, and will be enabled when the requisite mods are installed. These patches add a few days worth of life-support to each of the pods and some of the service modules. TAC-LS -- Some patches are included. Not up to date, and not all parts are patched. ConnectedLivingSpace - A simple CLS patch is included to add CLS passability to all SSTU crewed parts. FAR - Unsupported. You are on your own if you choose to use FAR. Any problems involving FAR needs to be brought up in the FAR thread. RO/RSS - Unsupported. Take any support requests regarding RO to the RO threads. KR&D - Known to be incompatible. Some config edits can be made to allow them to work in the same install, but KR&D cannot adjust stats on most SSTU parts. Introductory video by MrMeeb Known Issues IVAs - Many are incomplete. WIP. They'll be finished 'eventually'. Textures - Many unfinished textures.

  2. RealChute is a complete rework of the stock parachute module to fix a few of its inconveniences and get more realistic results out of parachutes! Issues that do not follow the bug reporting format will be ignored. NO LOGS, NO SUPPORT. Download - SpaceDock | GitHub Special thanks to @Starwaster for the KSP 1.2 compatibility update! ModuleManager patch files included in the download. Issues that do not follow the bug reporting format will be ignored. NO LOGS, NO SUPPORT. Features: Gradual deployment: Chutes gradually deploy, increasing realism and decreasing deployment shock. New Deployment Conditions: Chutes deploy in conditions ranging from Eve's crushing clouds to Duna's silken veil. Parachutes deploy either according to atmospheric density or altitude and will not deploy when not intended to; e.g. in space or on the pad. Autocuts can be set for a certain altitude per chute to cut some chutes while other deploy! Parachutes on Ground: Parachutes will not autocut upon nearly stopping mid-air or touching the ground, enabling drag chutes for planes! Parachutes Return to Staging: Parachutes can be restaged again and again without restrictions! Drag Chute: Drag chutes deploy at low altitude to slow landing airplanes. Full Customization: Parachutes' values can be edited, and modders can add the plugin to their packs. Combo Chute: Deploys a drogue and next a main chute. Custom parts: sumghai gave this pack its own parts! Vessel Hangs from Chute: Even nose chutes! Editor window: Edit parachutes from the editor for any shape, size, or characteristics! Presets: Quickly edit parachutes by saving configurations into presets and loading them quickly later!

If you find this too big, tell me on the forum and I'll revise them (note, this is not procedural yet, if you change the part yourself, you need to change the scale) -Fixed a bug with the calculator when calculating the diameter of multiple chutes -Added a sound on repack, thanks to ymir9 once again December 4th 2013 v0.3 -Completely removed stock drag dependancy. The parachutes now calculate drag according to real drag equations -Given the above, the drag parachutes generate is irrelevant of the mass of the part and now depends of the diameter of the parachute -Parachutes are now made of different materials, defined in cfg files -Parachute canopies now weight something which depends on which material they are made of and what is it's area density -Optimization of the code by about 300 lines as the module is pretty much complete -New parts with the pack, thanks to sumghai! You can now select between many different parachutes for the job you want to accomplish -It is now possible to arm a parachute to deploy as soon as it can through action group or part GUI -Minimal deployment can now be defined by altitude or pressure -Added FXGroups to parachute cut and repack, and providing a cut sound with the parachutes, offered by ymir9! -A small program made to help calculating parachute diameters is also included with the download! November 24th 2013 v0.2.1 *Hotfix* -Fixed a bug where single parachutes don't show the right icon colours -Fixed the weird glitchiness of the parachute's orientation in some occasions -Fixed parachutes not working if not on the current active vessel November 23rd 2013 v0.2 -Added a compatibility mode for a second parachute on the same part! Can only be used if the parachute has a a second set of parachute transform/animation -Reworked deployment code from the ground up to allow the above feature November 16th 2013 v0.1b -Fixed the issue where deploying the parachute below the full deployment height would play the second animations faster -Added sounds on both predeployment and deployment -Added a deployment timer that will show a countdown on the flight screen -Added a clause that the ship must go downards to deploy and that will show status on the flight screen -Fixed a few remaining deployment bugs -Changed the behaviour of the part GUI to only show when the action is available November 13th 2013 v0.1.1a -Hotfix of a few deployment bugs that could cause weird unresponsive parachutes -Added a "cutAlt" feature to automatically cut a parachute below a certain altitude.

FAQ (if you ask a question that is here, I'm not answering you.): Q: How/Where do I edit and customize parachutes? A: In the action groups panel. Click on the said panel like you wanted to edit action groups, then click on the parachute you want to edit. A window with all the editing options will appear. for this specific parachute. Don't forget to press apply before leaving. Q: This panel is too complicated, isn't there a simpler way to do this? A: If you don't want to use the editor panel, you really don't have to. There is a preset system that allows you to select the parachute's type (main, droge, drag, or combo), it's size (0.625m - 2.5m for cones/stacks, small - large for radials), and apply it to your current chute. You don't even have to complicate your life. Q: When I'm pressing apply, it's telling me that the craft is too heavy for the parachute. What do I do? A: Make sure the the only parts attached to the craft when you press apply are the parts that you want to land. Detach your launcher or any other fluff before pressing apply. The parachute is calculated with the weight of all the parts currently attached to the craft. You can also toggle dry/wet mass in the editor to help, but it defaults at dry. Q: What is this "parachutes used" field in the editor window? A: This is the amount of parachutes deployed at the same time to land your parachute. This option will spread the load of your craft throughout all the parachutes used, effectively lowering the size of each. Be careful: a triple canopy is only a visual effect, it's only one chute. Stach chutes, on the other side, are two chutes (one comes out on each side). This is why this field does not say parts; a part can have multiple chutes on it (like the stacks and the combos). This is why a cone chute with a triple canopy would put one in parachutes used, and a stack chute would put two. Four radial chutes in symmetry would use four. Basically, you just put in the amount of individual active chutes at the same time, regardless of what the canopies look like. Q: Why can't I access the parachute editor when starting career? When does it come available? A: The parachute editor comes with the action groups panel. As long as the most basic action groups are unavailable, the panel is unavailable. In a normal stock game, the basic action groups become available with the first VAB and SPH upgrades. Q: I used to be able to resize parachutes with the right click menu, but those options aren't there anymore. What happened to them? A: The right click resizing menu is a helping too with the previous questions. While the action groups menu is unavailable, you can resize parachutes with the right click menu. When they are, resizing now happens in the action groups menu. This only happens in career mode, so in science and sandbox, you would always go to the action groups window. Q: Why does the Engineer's Report say there are no chutes on the craft when I clearly put some? A: The Engineer's Report looks for stock chutes. I haven't implemented a check for RealChute yet. Be patient. Q: Does this work on Windows 64bit builds of KSP? A: As of KSP 1.1, yes. However, this is absolutely not something that is sure never to change. If the Winx64 builds of the game return to being unstable, buggy messes, you bet that the lock will absolutely return, and I reserve the right to bring it back at any moment I see fit, and at my discretion, and mine only. But, with the current look of things, I do not anticipate the need to do this in any foreseeable future. You have, however, been warned. Q: Do the parachutes hold on at 4x physical time warp? A: Depending on how fast you are coming down and which chute you are using, yes. Most often they will hold on just fine, but I really can't guarantee they will. However be careful, the chutes fully deployed added to high physical timewarp values can lead to bad stuff, you've been warned. Q: Is this FAR compatible? A: FAR has it's own built-in implementation of RealChute, added by me, providing basic RealChute-esque behaviour, minus all the fluff. If you want the in game editor and all the additional features RealChute provides, install this, it'll override the version built into far. Q: Can you make a ModuleManager file for *insert mod here*? A: I currently don't have much time to work on configs for mods, but if you make one and are 100% sure it works, send it to me, I'll see about including it. Q: I'm trying to add a secondary parachute to a part but it's not working! A: It's not working because you can't add a secondary parachute to any part. It needs a second parachute transform, a second set of parachute animations, etc. A modeller needs to make a part that has two parachute to allow it. Q: What is your favourite pie flavour? A: I love cherry and blueberry pie tbh.

  4. Hi fellow kerbonauts After years of downloading and enjoying mod from the great KSP community it's time I do something myself, so here it is : Crew Light The goal of this mod is to automatize, as much as possible, the lights of your vessels (and of kerbal's helmet). Every part that currently hold crew gets its lights turning on Lights react to the sunshine And to depth GIF incoming... When approaching a distant vessel its lights will blink, sending you a welcoming message in Morse code Kerbal on EVA can toggle lights Youtube review by @Kottabos : How does it works ? Vessel's lights are divided into 3 groups : Lights of crew-able part : They will remain off until a kerbal gets on-board Lights NOT in the light action group : (and kerbal's helmet light) They'll go on when the sun's fall, off when it rises Other Lights : They will work as usual, toggling by the light action group This mod rely on the light action group to determine which light belongs to which group, in stock KSP you can change action group only in the editor, so no lights on all crafts already launched will react to the sun rising/falling. To change action group in flight you will need the mod Action Groups Extended, by @Diazo. And an enhanced support of the mod Aviation Lights by @BigNose, maintained by @MOARdV : By default its navigation and strobe light will get turned on at night using the custom blinking light provided by AviationLights, flash, double flash, interval. This is configurable, per light, in the setting file. The beacon light will stay off until you push the throttle, acting as a real warning light And it now support Kerbal Electric (a set of tweak-able and very cool lights) : How to modify how it works ? There is a file Settings.cfg in Kerbal Space Program/GameData/CrewLight/PluginData/ with some variables to tweak, names and comment should be explicit enough. Most useful one are : morse_code : change the morse message sent by distant vessel, here you can find a Morse alphabet distance : set the distance at which the Morse message begins only_light_not_in_AG : if False every light will toggle according to sunlight always_on_in_space : if True kerbal who disembark will always turn their lights on while on orbit use_staggered_light lights which respond to the sun light will be turn on in a staggered way What is needed ? ModuleManager is the only dependency, all credits go to @ialdabaoth and @sarbian Know issues : Lights on kerbal's helmet don't turn on/off as the sun rises/falls. Lights will be turned on if the kerbal disembark in the dark but status of the sunlight won't be checked after that. What to do if it doesn't work ? Report it to Github or on this thread. This is my first mod for KSP and one of my first working C# code, I've tested it on every situation I could think of but it may have bugs left. And a big thank you to @Diazo, @Nereid, @Crzyrndm, @RealGecko, @Skalou for helping me, and to every modders out there who wrote good code for learning Download on SpaceDock Download on Github Last 1.2.2 version Source on Github License is MIT Dev thread, now closed
  5. Because UbioZur has kindly allowed to update his work, Alewx and girka2k have taken care to update and maintain this great mod. From the UbioZur's original thread: ----IMPORTANT---- These are the basic requirements that are necessary for any support of the issues that are happening. -What KSP Version is used -What Welding Version is used -Which Mods are installed -Preweldment craftfile -KSP.Log If you do not provide this information, do not expect great help. ----IMPORTANT---- Please read carefully "Known limitations" and "Known Issues" sections before using this mod. The program is still under heavy development, so you may encounter problems when using it, and the result of it's work may not satisfy you. In this case, do not hesitate to report it here. 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. For a more comprehensive version checking experience, please download the KSP-AVC Plugin. Download version 2.5.1 for KSP 1.3.0 Download version 2.5.0 for KSP 1.2.2 Download version 2.3.3 for KSP 1.1.2 Download Config and Icons for very useful Filter Extensions mod. Examples for welding (even including single animated parts): Latest changes: 2017-07-09 - Version 2.5.1 - Continued Recompiled for KSP 1.3.0 Fixed empty WeldedMeshSwitch slots 2016-11-15 - Version 2.5.0 - Continued New Feature: Internal merging Welding parts with internals will now create new internals for this weldment Improved mass calculation precision 2016-11-15 - Version 2.4.4 - Continued Fixed NPE with certain parts 2016-11-10 - Version 2.4.3 - Continued Fixed scaling of parts having only a single mesh 2016-11-08 - Version 2.4.2 - Continued Fixed scaling of parts Fixed a bug with CoM offset with multiple models Full history of changes: Installation As usual, extract the GameData folder from archive into the main folder where your game is installed - for example: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Kerbal Space Program WARNING! Don't delete GameData\UbioWeldingLtd\Parts folder or you will lose all your weldments! Usage Create the set of part you would like to weld inside the VAB or SPH Press button in stock Launcher Follow the instructions. Weldments will be saved in the GameData\UbioWeldingLtd\Parts folder Reload game and then you will have your weldment available on the part list. (You can try to save time by enabling the "Database autoreload" option in settings, but it should be borne in mind that this mode is incompatible with many mods and can cause problems.) Known limitations / supported and unsupported mods If you weld together multiple RCS, you will not be able to use the weldment for rotation - the game doesn't allow it. Don't include in your weldment more than one Leg/Light/Solar panel/Science experiment - it is game limitation. The main restriction is not to weld together two identical parts from this list. So for instance, you should not weld two legs together. One leg and one illuminator on the same weldment does not present a problem. Also it is better not to combine together several Docking ports in one weldment. If you weld Engine with integrated Alternator, your weldment always will have Electricity amount equal to 0 even if you have welded a battery to it (Bug/Feature of the game). Multiple Engine with Fairing are not supported by the game. Generally, I suggest not include the engine(s) in your weldment. Crew Hatch: Game allow them only near the CoM of the weldment or hatch will be unusable. Game won't allow several hatches. Winglet/wings/control surfaces/parachutes: they can/must work incorrectly after welding. Other limitations will be described Soon(â„¢) Incompatible mods: You can have all these mods installed, and will have no problems. But welding the parts from them will lead to unusable weldment. Procedural parts Infernal Robotics Compatible mods: Tweakscale Hullcam VDS (only one camera per weldment) Remote tech (don't add more than one antenna to your weldment) Feel free to share in this thread what mods works and don't work for everyone to know. Known Issues welded engines are causing a major trouble, already when they are welded and also as a new part.

  6. This is a continuation of the idea of the well-known Audio Muffler mod by NovaSilisko Its purpose is to make game sounds feel more realistic by muffling them as the air around your vessel gets less dense. here will be a video demonstrating the mod's features later License: CC BY-NC-SA Source code: on GitHub Supported KSP version: 1.3.0 and 1.2.2 Download from SpaceDock (for KSP 1.3.0) Download from SpaceDock (for KSP 1.2.2) A serious redux of the original version was made to be able to implement some new features as Cabin sounds are not muffled when you are inside it Music is not muffled anymore In atmosphere sounds feel different if they happen outside your vessel from the ones inside While on IVA in space you can hear your own engines and can't hear anything outside your vessel If you get bored by totally silent space, you may edit the mod's config file (Audio Muffler Redux/PluginData/AudioMuffler Redux/muffler.cfg) and set the "minimalCutoff" to 300. Doing so you'll get the original mod's behaviour when sounds in space were not muffled to none but to "nothing more than a deep bass rumble" instead. More settings: helmetOutsideIVA - hear helmet and cabin sounds (e.g. Chatterer, alarms etc.) in flight when not on IVA helmetOutsideEVA - hear helmet sounds when on EVA and not in 1st person view helmetForUnmanned - enables you, as a remote operator, to hear beeps and alarms of an unmanned vessel even from outside view helmetInMapView - hear helmet sounds in Map view vesselInMapView - hear muffled sounds from distant parts of your vessel in Map view outsideInMapView - hear muffled outside sounds in Map view (actually, doesn't make much significant difference) For first person view on EVA you can use the Through the Eyes of a Kerbal mod
  7. About INSTANTIATOR is the plugin that allows you to place primitives and billboards around the celestial bodies and do a lot of manipulations with them. How to use it? 1. Drop everything from the .zip file to your GameData folder 2. Open the file "Object.cfg" in any text editor (Notepad++ for example) This file contains the list of the objects and its parameters. The object config node looks like this: SCALED_OBJECT { name = ExampleSphere type = sphere scale = 12000, 12000, 12000 shader = Unlit/Transparent main_tex = /example_tex rotation = 0, 0, 0 bodyName = Kerbin invertNormals = false } Let's break it down! name - the name of GameObject type - for now there's 3 object types - "cube", "sphere" and "billboard". NOTE: the objects of type billboard can be applied to the bodies that has the Sun template (or to The Sun itself) ONLY. scale - the scale of the GameObject (x,y,z) shader - You can use any shader that is present in Unity. main_tex - path to the texture rotation - the rotation of the GameObject (x,y,z) bodyName - the name of the parent body invertNormals - inverts the normals of the mesh DOWNLOAD: Compiled (An example is included) Source Planet packs that uses it: Gameslinx's Planet Pack by @Gameslinx Kargantua System Warning! It's the alpha version and it may contain a lot of glitches. If you find a one, please let me know. Planned features: -Edit all the material parameters -Load custom .mu files
  8. So I have been considering over the past month or two the creation of a life support system tailored to fit in with the USI mods, and also bring together some the bits I like about other mods already on the market, and add a few of my own tweaks, etc. This is pretty much my interpretation of how, if I were to go buy Kerbal in a store, I would expect a stock-ish life support system to work. I've been playing with it and minus a few refinements am very happy with the result. With that, I am pleased to introduce USI Life Support. Basic overview stuff. Mechanics wise, it's pretty simple. Kerbals require supplies. Kerbals also require EC. these are both on the same timer, so I just check supplies for the status window. When Kerbals are done consuming supplies, leftovers, scraps, and 'anything else' is either tossed overboard, or (if storage is available) tossed into a 'mulcher'. The resulting organic slurry is called 'mulch' and can be used to feed greenhouses, etc. at the player's discretion (or in the case of MKS, converted into Organics at varying levels of efficiency). 15 days out, the visuals go yellow (sorry, no auto-warp-slowdown-thingie, use KAC). When supplies run out, things go into the red. If you leave them unsupplied for 15 days... well, they just say 'screw it', get grouchy, and quit. They are still in the pod. they still take up a seat. But they can't fly, can't EVA, and essentially do the Kerbal equivelant of spinning around in their office chairs, refusing to work, until resupplied. This is a design consideration in that all of us, at least once, has just flat out done goofed, and lost a whole colony of Kerbals via glich or other sadness. Yes, death/despawn will be an option. Not the default one tho. Mechanics wise, they are transformed into tourists, as they are essentially on a self-imposed vacation Once resupplied, they are happy as clams and will return to work. While on EVA, they will not quit. But if they are brought back aboard a ship and have been starved (and can't find a hot meal waiting) they will promptly go in strike, and begin their self imposed vacation immediately. Orange suited Kerbals (Jeb, Bill, Bob, and Val) are immune to the ill effects of life support. They will still consume supplies if given, but do not leave the job, because they are just that awesome. This always gives a player (especially a new one) an 'out' to test out a manned mission before actually committing your other kerbals, etc. to a horrible fate of snack deprivation. Yes, it's a bit more 'Kerbal' than TAC-LS, but also a lot more predictable and with harder consequences than 'Snacks'. It does, however, feel 'right' (at least to me) from a design standpoint. Parts wise: Three inline storage compartments. No extra recyclers needed. No resourced added to pods (the 15 day window covers all of the Kerbin SOI so no point). No random contracts. MKS/OKS Changes MKS wise, closed loop just got a lot harder/more interesting (depending on your point of view). The old C3 (now renamed to the Pioneer Module) will have a basic mulcher and greenhouse and can do recycling at 50% efficiency for up to four Kerbals. Kerbitats operate at 75% efficiency. Mk-IV modules (once released) will operate at 90% efficiency off-world, 100% efficiency on the surface (pulling in of local material is inferred, no extra drills required). Supplies come from organics. Organics come either from mulched supply waste, or from a combo of water/substrate. So surface bases are easier to get to self sufficiency - if they are on water/substrate deposits. Orbital will always be a pain - so you will need to fly up fresh organics or keep large stores. And since organics creation is not tied to the life support loop, building large surface farms is also pretty easy now. Dealing with hungry Kerbals So you can do some very interesting things. Run a command pod to dock reviving supplies/snacks to a starved out colony ship. Use one of your orange-suits to lead a mission and conserve supplies. Note that Kerbals are pretty damn aggressive about getting their snacks - the only way to lock them out of the biscuit tin is to click that little feed button by the resource on a part (same way we reserve some battery power for a probe). Note that a Kerbal about to starve (i.e. no supplies for 15 days) will in fact happily break open said biscuit tin. witty screen message included Design side note: So 'Mulch'. Waste was used, and too generic. And I wanted something that showed that the stuff was kinda useful, not edible, and felt more 'kerbal' (and less like poo!) if that makes sense. The idea of Kerbals tossing all of the spare bits and scraps into a contraption and getting out a semi-useful generic organic slurry had a certain appeal, hence the abstracted mulchers and mulch resource. The resource itself is just 'supplies' and has the visual representation of a translucent, semi-rounded green cube. What are they? Well... leave that to the imagination.

  9. This is something I made for placing RCS thrusters in the right positions in the first try without having to go back and forth between the VAB and the hacked gravity launchpad. Features: Display thrust and torque forces caused by RCS or engines. Delta V readout for RCS. Dry center of mass marker. "Average" center of mass marker. Center of drag marker (CoD) for parachute placement. Ability to resize editor's overlay markers. Display total mass of resources. Supports: blizzy78's toolbar KSP Add-on Version Checker Once enabled you should see RCSBuildAid's window, select the translation mode or press any of the translation flight control keys ("hnijkl" keys) and then you should see something like this: Cyan arrows represents thruster forces, the green arrow represents the translation motion (or thrust). The red arrow represents the torque force in your vessel, if you have a red arrow then your ship will rotate when trying to translate in docking mode. So all you have to do is place your RCS thrusters in a way that eliminates this force. The red circular arrow is an indication of how fast the vessel will rotate. The red CoM marker is the dry center of mass (DCoM) which represents the center of mass of your vessel when it doesn't have any fuel (in the picture, without liquid fuel, oxidizer or mono-propellant, but is configurable). Image album with some examples http://imgur.com/a/UJdV7 Video explaining how to use RCSBA (version 0.5) by Geneborg This plugin only works with parts using stock modules such as ModuleRCS and ModuleEngines, mods that use custom modules will not be detected. Known issues: delta v readout will only show for monopropellant RCS, doesn't work for the new Vernor RCS. Parachute mode only works with stock aerodynamics and parachutes, will not work with mods such as FerramAerospaceResearch and RealChute.

  10. While working on another mod I ran across a method named SetOpacity. I couldn't resist - I had to see if I could make this work. It does! well ... sort of. Vessels are partially visible against the near field while transitioning but are invisible (at zero opacity). In the above image opacity was about 0.4 (0:invisible to 1:normal visibility). Instructions: Download the appropriate version 0.09 for KSP 1.2.2 or 0.10 for KSP 1.3.0 Add the “Surface mounted cloaking device" under the Utility tab to your vessel. (Brown slug thing between the solar panels in the image above) from the Utility tab Fade time and maximum fade can be set in the editor or in flight In flight toggle the Cloak on/off with the right click menu. The cloak part its self can be set to leave its self uncloaked - or not. Notes: This doesn't hide your craft from BDA radars. Part model is rather primitive (sorry) I'm still at the beginning of the 3D modeling learning curve. Some oddities with visibility and the near field (area close to the craft) If you set the cloak device to cloak its self make sure to set the “Cloak Off" to an action group other wise you may not be able to find the part to right click again. I haven't balanced this - it should probably use a lot more electricity. Can be easily changed by editing the config file Known Problems: If a craft is cloaked and a piece breaks off it may remain cloaked - solar panels and fairings in particular. Exiting the scene and returning will uncloak the broken piece(s). Engine shrouds and strut/fuel line end caps don't fade in/out and only disappear at full cloak. Shadows don't fade in/out and only disappear at full cloak. If the self cloak is turned off while cloaked it gets confused as to it's state (cloaked/not cloaked). Same problem with particles. Multiple cloaking devices on the same craft gives odd results. No plans to fix this at this point. The cloak device its self doesn't fade out - just disappears at full cloak. (Due to new shaders?)

  11. P L A N E T S H I N E Why PlanetShine? After trying some mods to improve visuals and get something more realistic looking, I transformed KSP into something really good looking, but I was really happy with the result, but I felt that something was still missing. When in low orbit of a planet, the side of my ship which was facing the planet was completely dark, which was not realistic! It should have been illuminated a bit by the planet's own reflective light! I decided to fix that with this mod, by making planets and moons to reflect their own (colored) light to your vessel. This phenomenon is called in real life albedo or planetshine : What does this mod actually do? (Summary) When you are close to a planet or moon, its bright side reflects (colored) light to your vessel. More realistic ambient light in vacuum, very dark by default, can be customized. More realistic ambient light on the ground and atmosphere of planets/moons, tinted by the surface color. Very lightweight: almost no RAM used, and your FPS should not change. Additional features Settings menu to customize many parameters, as well as several quality/performance settings. Support for the Toolbar mod. Planet and moons light configuration supports Module Manager and loading across GameData folder, and can be easily customized by players or other mods. Conflicts with the mod "Ambient Light Adjustment" because it has exactly the same feature: custom ambient light settings with a slider. When close to the sun, the sunlight becomes dramatically intense. Screenshots You can see the subtle red light over Duna, green over Jool, and blue over Kerbin: http://imgur.com/a/4MODI Before / After Screenshots by CaptRobau: http://imgur.com/a/Nekay Recommended mods for the best experience Environmental Visual Enhancements for clouds and city lights. A good galaxy skybox (using Texture Replacer): Oinker's Skybox Teflon's Skybox Chatterer for adding ambient sounds that really improve the immersion. An atmospheric sky enhancing mod: SkyTonemapper (Stable) makes the sky look better by smoothing it (removes the banding effect) Scatterer (Experimental - many bugs) makes the sky and atmosphere looking really great and much more realistic, sunsets become amazing. Engine lighting for adding realistic lighting to engines thrust. Surface Lights to illuminate the ship when it gets really dark. Additional information I would appreciate feedback on this mod a lot! I spent a lot of time trying to make this reflected light to behave as consistent as possible, and I think it's pretty well tuned by now. Planet and moons colors are all editable in "CelestialBodies.cfg", and you can change a few other settings in "Settings.cfg", such as the vacuum light level (quite low by default), and the reflection light intensity. Compatible with all game versions from 0.25 to 1.0, and probably older versions as well. 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. For a more comprehensive version checking experience, please download the KSP-AVC Plugin. Changelog Known issues Conflicts with other mods that change ambient light, such as Ambient Light Adjustment and AmbientLightShifter Not tested much on x64, might cause issues Might have minor issues with Kopernicus, which optionally provides custom atmospheric and vacuum ambient lights. Planned features Automatic detection of planet colors and atmosphere, no more need for CelestialBodies.cfg (working on it right now) Actual planetshine (reflected lights between two planet/moon) Different reflected light color depending on the biome (land/sea/poles) Sunset/sunrise lights More performance tweaks, such as reducing the number of light depending on the situation, or using a diffuse wrapping shader Choice between presets for ambient light (realistic or stock) and other settings Better (future) compatibility with other mods Credits I copied the planets/moons color list from the Distant Object Enhancement mod Thanks to TheSexiestofClowns on Reddit for his screenshot that I used at the beginning A lot of thanks to the people who helped me over IRC, such as Thomas, Rbray89, and a few others ----------------- Support the author If you like this plugin, please consider donating, it will be greatly appreciated: ----------------- Download standard versions: 0.2.5.2 for KSP 1.2 0.2.5 for KSP 1.1 0.2.4.2 for KSP 1.0.5 or older ----------------- Download experimental version 0.5 for KSP 1.0.5 or older: details in this spoiler: Copyright 2014, Valerian Gaudeau, Apache license 2.0
  12. What it does It makes better automatic default choices for crew assignments (e.g. "labs need scientists" or "drills need engineers"). It remembers your assignments, so that the next time you launch that ship, it will try to do the same thing. (No more discovering, *after* you're in orbit, that your gosh-darn rescue ship filled up all the slots and you've got nowhere to put the stranded kerbal!) You can customize the default behavior with ModuleManager config. NOTE: This mod is not compatible with Kerbal Construction Time. Download from SpaceDock License: CC-BY-NC-ND 4.0 Source code How to install Unzip into your GameData folder, same as any mod. How to use Just play KSP! The mod is deliberately minimalistic. It adds no UI, it doesn't require any special actions to use. It just silently makes the crew-assignment experience better. The only thing that affects you at all is: if you go into the "crew" tab of the editor and change crew assignments, then your choices won't be persisted unless you hit the "save" button before launching the ship. That's it, that's all there is to know. Cool things it does by default Makes sure there's a pilot on board, if you don't have any SAS-capable probe cores. Staffs science labs with scientists. If you have any non-rerunnable science experiments on board, makes sure there's at least one scientist. If you have any parts that need an engineer (ISRU, drills), makes sure there's at least one engineer. Repairable parts (parachutes, landing legs, wheels) also have an engineer requirement (if there's an available engineer of sufficient level). Tries to pick the highest-level crewmembers available. (Except for pilots; if you have an SAS-capable probe core and your pilots are all lower-level than the core, it picks the *lowest* pilot available.) Tries to fill all command pods; doesn't try to fill passenger cabins. If you do manual assignments in the crew tab and then save the ship, it remembers your choices the next time you load the ship. Empty slots will be left empty. It will try to assign specific kerbals by name (e.g. "Jeb goes in slot 0 of this command pod"), and if that crewmember is unavailable, will try to assign another kerbal of the same profession (e.g. "I want Jeb, but he's on a mission already, so I'll use this pilot here.") How it decides The mod works with two types of assignments: default choices, and player choices. Default choices Default choices are controlled by ModuleManager config in a file that comes with the mod (see "How to customize", below). There are two flavors of default choices, *assignments* and *requirements*. Assignments are default choices for crew slots in specific crewable modules. The default config that comes with the mod assigns scientists to science labs, and all crewmembers to command pods. The default config deliberately leaves passenger cabins empty, though you can tweak this by adding your own config if you like. Requirements are added to parts that are not themselves crewable, but which need a particular type of kerbal to operate them. If your vessel has any parts that specify requirements, then the mod will try to ensure that at least one of the specified kerbal type is present in the crew. The default config that comes with the mod adds a "scientist" requirement to all non-rerunnable science experiments (Mystery Goo, Science Jr.), and an "engineer" requirement to ISRU units and ore drills. Player choices When you load a new ship, or add a new part, then everything is controlled by the default behavior and assignments will be updated dynamically as you switch stuff around on your ship. It can do this because you haven't *observed* the assignments and it's therefore free to shuffle assignments around without invalidating any of your choices. However, the moment you switch to the "crew" tab in the editor and see what the assignments are, it then nails all the assignments in place. (It's a Heisenbergian sort of thing.) Basically, what it's doing is assuming that the moment you *see* the assignments, they become your conscious choices rather than something the program assigned. Once you see the assignments (and make any changes of your own), those get persisted to the ship, and will be saved when you hit the "save" button. Such specific choices are assumed to be for a specific kerbal, or for a kerbal of that profession if the kerbal isn't available. How to customize Since all crew assignments/requirements are controlled by ModuleManager config, you can add your own .cfg file to change the behavior to whatever you like. If you'd like to customize the behavior, the following references may be helpful: BetterCrewAssignment.cfg: This is the ModuleManager config that is installed with the mod. It includes detailed comments explaining how it works, so that you can write your own config. ModuleManager documentation: You can find helpful information here and here. A word of thanks Many thanks to @sarbian for a small but vital bit of advice that unblocked the completion of this mod. Thanks to @HebaruSan for the feature suggestion of adding engineer requirements to repairable parts.
  13. Contract Configurator - A config-file based solution for creating new contracts! How it Works Contract Configurator exposes various hooks into KSP's contract system through a standard config file syntax. This means that modders using Contract Configurator can create new contracts without writing any code. The config file format has 5 basic sections: Contract Summary - This contains all the summary text, expiry/deadline dates, and reward information. Parameters - These are mappings to the stock ContractParameter classes which specify what the player has to do to complete the contract. Requirements - This is what is required before the contract will show up. Most of the ProgressTracking information is supported, along with a few other things. Behaviours - These are behaviours that are applied at the contract level. A behaviour can create additional objects related to the contract (such as spawning Kerbals), be used to store persistent data or any number of other things. Data nodes - These define new data for use within the contract using Contract Configurator's powerful expression language. And if the provided parameters and requirements aren't enough, Contract Configurator is extensible. New parameters and requirements can be added in as little as a dozen lines of code. Download Contract Configurator can be downloaded from GitHub. Source The full source and test configuration is available on GitHub. Documentation The user guide is hosted on the GitHub wiki. Change Log Version Checking 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. For a more comprehensive version checking experience, please download the KSP-AVC Plugin. Recommended Mods The following is a list of mods that enhance some of the things Contract Configurator does: Coherent Contracts - this is a must for any contracts using the stock description (aka gibberish) generator. It turns the gibberish into actual understandable English! Waypoint Manager - this will help with any contract using the stock waypoint system by drawing the waypoints in the flight view. Makes hitting targets more accurately much easier! License Contract Configurator is licensed under the MIT License. RemoteTech integration (CC_RemoteTech.dll) is licensed under GNU GPL v2.0. Like what you see? Consider donating to the coffee fund! It will not go directly to supporting this or other mods under my care, but it may keep my motivation up!
  14. Are you tired of your Kerbals complaining about having nothing to do during long flights? Do you want to give them more buttons to push, and maybe some displays so they can keep track of what's going on? Then look no farther. RasterPropMonitor is a plugin and toolkit originally by Mihara that provides functional props within your IVA. It was originally designed for the displays of the ALCOR capsule, but it evolved to add more features and widgets, dragging the Kerbal Space Program into the 21st Century. RPM includes some overrides for stock capsules (and a few mod capsules) to show off what can be done, but there's far more in the plugin than these examples can show. DOWNLOAD: From GitHub. CKAN USERS: I do not support installing by CKAN. If you have questions regarding this mod being on CKAN, or missing from CKAN, you can talk to the people on the CKAN thread. If you installed this mod using CKAN, and you are having problems with it, you must uninstall this mod through CKAN and install it manually to make sure it is not a CKAN installer issue. If you have not taken that minimal step, I will not provide additional support. I am not involved with CKAN - installation issues need to be taken up with them. HOW TO GET HELP: Did you use CKAN? Look at the previous entry. Otherwise, read the first few entries in the FAQ on GitHub. DOCUMENTATION: Want to tweak an IVA to your liking? Documentation is on GitHub. RELEASE NOTES: On GitHub. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: Also on GitHub. SOURCE CODE: Also on GitHub (notice a theme? ). LICENSE: GNU GPLv3. Props courtesy of alexustas and other contributors, and available under the terms of CC 3.0 BY-NC-SA. Portions of this package are derived from stock textures by Squad and are distributed according to Squad policy of permitting to distribute stock assets with mods if required. TinyPirate's 2-minute-mod review: Add-ons for RasterPropMonitor: Plugins that integrate with RasterPropMonitor, enhancing the IVA experience. Astrogator, for planning transfers between worlds. Docking Port Alignment Indicator, to make IVA docking much, much easier. NavUtilities, providing ILS and HSI in the cockpit. SCANsat, for map views on the MFDs. VesselView, for graphical representations of your craft. Plugins RasterPropMonitor can interact with, enhancing the IVA experience even more. Ferram Aerospace Research: for FAR-computed variables, as well as controlling flaps and spoilers from IVA. MechJeb: for all sorts of auto-pilot features and flight information. RealChute: RPM can arm, disarm, deploy, and cut RealChute parachutes (as well as deploying and cutting stock 'chutes). RasterPropMonitor contains example props based on stock internal props. If you want to create a really good looking IVA, you should consider grabbing Alexustas' ASET Props. It implements more of RPM's features than any other mod I've seen. Even better, ASET Avionics provides props for space planes (or any other IVA wanting some aviation-styled props).

I may have missed it, or I may not have imported it from the original RPM thread. Speaking of which... Mihara had more to say about RPM on the original thread (and I'll edit this post some time down the road to include more of the links and info he had).
  15. AtmosphereAutopilot plugin development thread. I'm a flight man. After getting bored from mundane KSP launch routine I found myself enjoying my old hobby - atmospheric flight. And then the struggle was born - lack of control. SSTO's were annoying, keeping them on ascent was hard. Flying anything but overdamped dart was exhausting even with joystick. I felt like i'm in 1940-s, and it was not the feeling i wanted to get from a game I love so much. One year ago, in November of 2014, I started working on this plugin to solve those problems for me. I needed three things in my life: generic fly-by-wire, cruise control and automatic lander. It makes me sad, but after one year, I only managed to implement the first autopilot (cruise control is also implemented). Considering my free time shortage as a student, I decided to still release this mod here, for one may find it's functionality useful for him, or for another to see the potential in this mod and help it with his advice or coding\engineering skills. Autopilots list: Standard Fly-By-Wire. Control signal abstraction autopilot. Here is a short flight footage of statically unstable plane I took: VIDEO. You can see roll-yaw induced isolation, AoA and G moderation, as well as general behaviour of the autopilot. Mouse Director. Plane tries to fly towards camera direction. Use middle mouse button hold + mouse turn to look above the craft and have a convenient camera angle. Precise control (CAPS LOCK) prevents from roll-over while accelerating down, as well as restrains acceleration in general. VIDEO. Cruise Flight. Maintain course, altitude, speed, fly towards a waypoint, picked on Kerbin in map view by click. More details in documentation. Videos: Quick overview by KerbalItalia dude (in Italian of course, but that doesn't really matter): https://youtu.be/k3rLK4uuJg8 Download links: Curse or SpaceDock or Github As usual, put .zip contents in gamedata. License: GNU GPL v3. Dependencies and compatibility: FAR is supported. No wind mods are supported, as well as any mods, wich are changing control surface, rcs and engine gimbaling behaviour. I recommend using Kerbal Joint Reinforcement by ferram4. If you're using "Stock Bug Fix Modules", turn off ModuleControlSurfacePlus and ModuleGimbalPlus modules in it's manager. FAQ: >FAR? - yes >Wobbling on my plane. - yes. In 99% of cases I'll know what's the problem, it's just that to fix it would be impossible under my time budget. Warm it up by pitching\rolling, tweak some stuff, it may help. Ask me, if desperate. Documentation: I tried my best at providing documentation of the code itself and writing a readme you can find in the archive, or in Git repo - https://github.com/Boris-Barboris/AtmosphereAutopilot/blob/master/README.md. Please, make sure you've examined it before asking any questions. I'm not very good at support, but i will try. FPS impact: Computational complexity of plugin (when active) - O(n), where n - number of parts. You will feel it on 100+ part crafts, and you will feel a heavy GUI, wich is full of numbers (Unity is slow with rendering strings, or maybe I'm just a bad coder), needed for debugging. Fortunately, most of the time, you don't need any GUI at all. Hotkeys: Default ones: "P" - "Master switch" you can use to toggle AA. "Shift"+"P" - toggle Autopilot Module manager GUI. "O" - default hotkey for moderation switch, when Fly-By-Wire is active. Can be changed in Global_settings.cfg in Fly-By-Wire section. Acknowledgments: Sarbian - for support of ModuleManager and consultation on numerical precision issues, and other cheesy KSP stuff.

  16. Connected Living Space (CLS) NOTICE to CLS USERS: Codepoet's real life is preventing him from supporting CLS. He has asked and I have volunteered to support CLS going forward. Codepoet is NOT gone, but has no time. Therefore, I'm cloning his OP and creating a new thread to continue the support and maintenance of CLS. Source code and download locations will remain the same, only the Forum thread will change (vBulliten limitation). The link to the original CLS thread is here. The link to the original development thread is here. The Forum mods have locked the original thread, so post your needs in this thread going forward. Current Version, 1.2.5.3, For KSP 1.3. Can be downloaded from SpaceDock || GitHub You will also need ModuleManager to load the config files for CLS to work. CLS now supports KSP-AVC, an addon version checker. If you have KSP-AVC inistalled, it will detect when CLS needs to be updated. CLS also is listed in CKAN for your automatic installation convenience. You can access the source code here. If you spot a bug please let me know. Ideally bugs should be raised in Github. More helpful than raising a bug report is to raise a bug report with lots of information about how to reproduce the problem, and with logs files, save files, craft files etc. Even more helpful is to write a fix by forking the code in Github, and then generating a pull request Introduction This mod identifies areas within a vessel that can be crewed by Kerbals and through which kerbals can pass internally to reach other parts that can be crewed. It is provided to make the concept of connected living spaces easily available to other mod developers and so to provide a single consistent understanding of which pars connect to each other, bringing together both multiple features via plugins and multiple part pack via configurations. CLS itself has a simple GUI to show the player which parts are connected to which. It also has an optional feature that conforms the stock crew transfer system to CLS's view of internal connectivity. License: ConnectedLivingSpace is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License CLS API WIKI - of interest to modders using CLS in their own mods. There is also some early documentation in the development thread. While CLS is primarily an API, it will operate in standalone mode, and does offer a few features. Check out Acessing CLS and CLS Features in the Wiki for details.Updates Acknowledgements: @codepoet, for the original ConnectedLivingSpace. Thanks for a great idea and your support. @JPLRepo, for many nights of helping me better understand KSP and reflection. @Kerbas_ad_astra, for contributions to config files @cakepie, for contributions to enable Airlock Plus compatibility @Booots, for contributions to enable Recoupler compatibility. and many others.

Fixed: Correct build deploy automation to project (missing icons for blizzy). Fixed: CLS tweakables incorrectly visible when custom passability is disabled. Version 1.2.0.1 Corrects an implementation bug. in 1.2.0.0 release, the wrong dll was distributed.. Build and deploy process is now automated. Version 1.2.0.0 makes CLS KSP 1.0.5 ready, and adds a new feature to the VAB/SPH Customizable Part configs for CLS. This feature is off by default. Refer to the CLS Wiki for more details on this handy new feature. Version 1.1.3.1 Fixes a KSP 1.0.2 toolbar issue when Blizzy Toolbar is not insatlled, a display issue with options when no vessel is loaded, and a change to the Freedom Alt Stock MM config. Version 1.1.3.0 Fixes a KSP 1.0.2 toolbar issue, a vessel loading bug, and adds support for Blizzy's toolbar. CLS now supports KSP-AVC if you have it installed. Version 1.1.2.0 Fixes a bug. Version 1.1.1.0 makes changes to the way hatches and highlighting work to make is easy to co-operate in these areas with other mods. Version 1.1.0.0 makes CLS work with KSP 0.90 Version 1.0.11.0 fixes a bug with the stock crew transfer integration Version 1.0.10.0 fixes a bug and integrates with the stock crew transfer system Version 1.0.9.0 is to support KSP0.25 and adds more config for various mods. Version 1.0.8.0 is to support KSP0.24.2 and uses the new stock toolbar. A bug in the VAB/SPS descriptions is fixed too. Version 1.0.7.0 fixes a bug in the editor when the root part is deleted, and adds config for FASA Version 1.0.6.0 fixes some problems with the hatches closing themselves across saves, and also allows hatches to be opened for attached rather than docked docking ports. Version 1.0.5.0 provides a scheme for mods using CLS to "loose bind" to it, which means that they can more easily work without CLS. However if you upgrade to 1.0.5.0 you should update other mods such as Ship manifest that use (or do not use!) it. Version 1.0.4.1 fixes bugs, allows for shielded docking ports and is the result of a major rework of the code. Hatches in docking ports have been re-written. There is also config for many more mods, and more options for the configs. Version 1.0.3.0 fixes a few bugs and adds more configs Version 1.0.1.0 is now available. this version adds closable hatches in docking ports, as well as improvements to the GUI, and configuration for more part packs.

  17. "As we know the liquid engines in KSP can ignite for infinite times at any moment as you want, which seems a bit making life too easy." This words has been said ages ago by HoneyFox and i completely agree with him. But his mod has not been updated for ages, also behaviors has been broken by KSP version changes and i have decided to rewrite. All inner logic has been changed but functionality is about the same, according to my vision. Well. What this mod can? 1. Each engine have limited number of available ignitions. 2. Engines requires resources (hypergolic fluid) and ignitors (and also electricity) to be activated. The required amounts of consumables can be configured in CFG. (Example MM patch included, additional explanation see below). 3. If lack of ignitors or hypergolic fluid - ignition will fail. 4. Its functionality could be restored using reloading by kerbalEVA from additional containers (included in pack). 5. Simplified ullage simulation available. If it is on, fuel have two condition s: "stable" (while under gravitation or acceleration) and "unStable" (if weightlessness). For "unStable" state - you can specify a chance of succesfull ignition (0.2 or 20% in example). Better way - to have small special engines for fuel rebound (sit down) down and reignition in weightlessness. 6. Of course, here are unlimited consumables if you'll use Launch clamp. This way onboard resources will not be consumed on launch. (useless to my mind, but let it be) only standart configuration at the moment. But each engine could be configured as you want. Also, more configs for different mods will be provided soon. For example (in upcoming configs): low stage engines will have 1 ignitors and 1 hypergolicFluid (or nothing if launch clamp), upper stages engines should have about 4-8 ignitors and 2 units of hypergolicFluid onboard (so, if you'll need to restart it more times you forced to have hypergolicFluid tanks onboard), LF/OX thrusters should have a lot of ignitors and much less onboard (in engine local part) amount of hypergolicFluid. Mainly (for better playability), amount of hypergolicFluid must be significantly less than ignitors. And IgnitorToolbox must be in top tech nodes. This way in the first games stages we will have engines with limited and unchangeable numbers of ignitors (when we have relatively short flights) and limited hypergolicFluid. This will force gamers carefully select engines for mission. (of course, this this involves having nonstandart configs, and if, after short period of public testing, there will not be found awful errors, i'll provide it). Also, ignitors are using for counting engine usages. In other words - this are engine life duration. HypergolicFluid - just consumables. Config example @PART[*]:HAS[@MODULE[ModuleEngine*],!RESOURCE[SolidFuel]] { RESOURCE //engine must have resources onboard to ignite { name = HypergolicFluid amount = 4 maxAmount = 4 } MODULE { name = ModuleEngineIgnitor // do not touch ignitionsAvailable = 4 // how many attempts tou have without reloading. -1 for infinitive autoIgnitionTemperature = 800 //we can ignite without spending resources if temp is high enuff ignitorType = T1 // just a string name T1 - means type1 (1 unit of HypergolicFluid for ignition attempt). may be any. useUllageSimulation = true // ullage simulation true/false (on/off) chanceWhenUnstable = 0.2 //0-1 chache to ignite in weightlessness ECforIgnition = 20 // How many EC should be spent per ignition attempt IGNITOR_RESOURCE //main resource usage { name = HypergolicFluid amount = 1 } } } Download from Spacedock DONATE Source installation: remove previous version and just extract an archive into Gamedata. requirements: ModuleManager
  18. This mod does what it says on the tin... it introduces a budget system to Career Mode KSP. Unlike some other budget mods, which just add money on top of what you already have, this one will cap your "maximum budget" based on your repuation. I'll explain what I mean further below. Features Monthly Budgets: Every 30 days (configurable) a monthly budget will be allocated to you, primarily based on your reputation (although it takes into account a couple of other factors). If your current funds are less than the budget allocation, your funds will be adjusted to match the new budget. (So, if you say have 100k funds on hand, but the mod was going to allocate you 500k, your funds will be topped up to 500k. If you held 600k, your costs would be deducted, but no budget would be awarded this month. Contracts will (usually) not have a cash payout/advance. Instead, whatever you would have gotten will be converted into reputation instead (at a conversion rate of 1 rep for every 10,000 funds) when you complete the contract. So you get it in the next budget cycle. The exception to this is contracts that pay out when you complete a parameter. You'll still get the funds for the parameters (mainly because I haven't figured out a way to make it transparent that the payout is 0 on these, without just pulling the funds away when you complete it, so the game will tell you you got paid, but you didn't). You'll also still get payouts for World First milestones (cause thats kinda the point, to encourage you to go exploring rather than worry about contracts). New to Version 2.0: This can now be disabled. Kerbal Deaths are punished. When a kerbal dies, a hefty reputation penalty is applied. The Kerbal government takes the lives of it's astronauts very seriously... so your funding will be slashed if you have many deaths. (reputation is reduced by a quarter, so a high rep program has more to fear from this than a low rep program). Massive thanks to JPLRepo for this bit, as he basically wrote it for me. Costs Running a space program is expensive, kerbals need to be paid etc. When calculating your budget, costs for wages and any active vessels will be deducted before the budget is awarded. If no budget is awarded, the costs will be deducted from your available funds. Configurable - Most aspects of the mod are configurable. See below for more details. *NEW* Emergency Funding - So you need to mount a rescue mission, you are running out of life support, but you've blown your budget. What do you do? With version 2.0 you can now access "Emergency funding" for 10% of your reputation (and therefore next budget). This has diminishing returns, and will completely cease if you access it 10 times in a row. If you don't use it for a few months, the levels of funding will gradually recover. Configuration: Most options are configurable. Options can be set in the stock difficulty menu. If that's not flexible enough, look in your save for "BudgetSettings" and the options are there.

  19. Have you taken a new survey contract and then been frustrated when you had to keep flipping between map and flight mode to find your waypoints? Did you crash your vessel? NEVER AGAIN. Waypoint Manager does the following: Renders waypoints in flight mode. Gives a GUI listing of all waypoints and allows you to activate navigation from that GUI. Allows the creation of custom waypoints. If you want to see it in action, check it out in maxhfx's KSP Easy Mods series: Custom Waypoints @Miles Teg has provided some custom waypoint files! To use them, copy the to GameData/WaypointManager/CustomWaypoints.cfg (I'll have to add a proper file dialog in a future version) and hit the "Import Custom Waypoints" button. Included are files for the various KSC biomes and for marking off the runway and helipads. Download Waypoint Manager can be downloaded from GitHub. Source The full source is available on GitHub. Documentation No documentation, just install and enjoy the waypoints. Change Log License Waypoint Manager is licensed under the MIT license. Like what you see? Consider donating to the beer fund! It will not go directly to supporting this or other mods under my care, but it may keep my motivation up!
  20. Strategia - A Brand New Strategy System! Description Strategia is a revamp to Kerbal Space Program's strategy system. All the stock strategies are removed, and replaced with new and unique strategies. The first set of strategies are special mission strategies. These strategies will give you advance cash and bonuses to certain milestones for completing a high level objective as part of your space program. They are dynamic, so they will work with mods that change the stock solar system by adding or changing celestial bodies. Be warned though - if you cancel one of these strategies without completing the objective, you will face a heavy penalty! Crewed Missions Once we've proven we can get a Kerbal to orbit and back, we need to continue to break new barriers. We have a choice of nearby bodies that we can get to. We choose to go to <insert celestial body here>, not because it is easy, but because it is hard. Uncrewed Missions The costs of sending a Kerbal to another planet are astronomical compared to those of sending a probe that we can leave behind. Why don't we send some probes to our neighbouring planets to gather science autonomously for us? The remaining strategies are the standard strategies - these give a bonus while active, and can be active for as long as you like. Astronaut Training Program Our standard training procedure is to treat newly hired astronauts as a disposable commodity to greatly reduce the cost of unscheduled disassemblies. Still, some argue that training our astronauts before putting them on top of a top of a ton of explosives will result in a lower mission failure rate. The cost of setting up the program will be high, nevermind the cost of actually training the astronauts. What do you say, do we want the right stuff, or the almost-good-enough stuff? Massive Scale Launches We've found some investors who are willing to sponsor us if we're able to launch colossal structures into space in a single launch. We'll have to employ some truly Whackjobian construction techniques to get these things into orbit. Contract Slot Machine These agencies seem to think they're doing us a favour offering by us these ridiculous contracts. Why should we be penalized for being choosy? By closing our books to the public, agencies will have no idea what we're willing to accept. There might be a little chaos in the contracts we see under this model, but if we're only choosing the best ones, then who cares?!? To Boldly Go If we want to get the most research possible done out there, we need to explore as many new biomes as we can. Government grants from exploration programs will ultimately help us fund further exploration and research. Probe Frenzy If we want to do some research, then probes are the way to go. What we save on sending Kerbals out there can be spent on a vast fleet of autonomous probes. Local Science There are so many research opportunities right in our back yard. We should focus on local research to bootstrap our space program. That way when we do make it further out there, we'll be sending the best technology we can. Stagnated Research There are several conservative groups on Kerbin that think we've gone too far, too fast. We're not about to shut down the space program, but maybe slowing down our development of new technology to appease these groups will get us some goodwill and ensure that they don't burn down KSC? Free Ice Cream We've come up with a crazy idea - giving out free ice cream at the space center. The public will absolutely love us. If we push the program far enough, we'll get better rewards for rescuing Kerbals (they'll get ice cream when they land!) and maybe even be able to get a discount on hiring new astronauts. FREE. ICE. CREAM. Media Circus To make a reputable space program, we need to ramp up the media involvement. Cameras everywhere, coverage 6 hours a day, 426 days a years. Of course, this could easily backfire if we have any... accidents. Pilot Focus Clearly the most important role among our astronauts is that of the pilot. Without a skilled pilot, nobody is going to space today (or any other day). Shall we build our space program around our brave pilots? Engineer Focus Where would we be without our engineers? They make sure everything is in order to get the other astronauts up and down safely. Shall we build our space program around the skilled engineer? Scientist Focus The scientist is the key role that we need to focus on. A skilled scientist knows exactly which sample to send back to maximize our science gain (we can only fit so many Mun rocks in those capsules). Shall we build our space program around our brilliant scientists? Download CKAN: In CKAN, select and download the mod "Strategia".

  21. Final Frontier kerbal individual merits current version: 1.3.2-3155 Sometimes it's hard to choose a kerbal for a mission because they are all the same... well, they differ in courage and stupidity but they have no history, no personal merits they have achieved. Do you remember who was the first kerbal in space? No? Ok, who was the first kerbal on Mun? Still no idea? The Final Frontier plugin will handle this for you. Each kerbal will get ribbons for extraordinary merits. And the number of missions flown (i.e. vessel recovered), total mission time and total EVA time is recorded, too. Download: Spacedock Spacedock direct link for KSP 1.1.3 Mirror: Curse For modders: Version 0.8.12 and later includes an api to reward ribbons from an external plugin. You will find an adapter class and an example here: FinalFrontierAdapter Planet Packs (for use in 0.6.0 or later): PFCE: Download Kerbol Expanded: Download (WIP, last update 02.01.2015) Ribbon Packs (for use in 0.9.1 or later): RANKS and MILITARY RANKS FOR KERBALS (Base ID 1000) by Araym Expedition/Rank Ribbon Packs (Base ID 8000) bySmarterThanMe Armed Forces Ranks (Base ID 3000) by Shadriss If you want to create your own ribbon pack feel free to do so. But you should use IDs other than in the ribbon packs above. Just set the BASE in the config file to some other number and keep in mind that every ribbon must get an unique ID. (Screenshot of my development copy and not from a real game) To open the Final Frontier Hall of Fame window just click on the button labeled "FF" in the toolbar or press LEFTALT-F (hardcoded at the moment, so it's not assignable to another key). If you are using the stock toolbar you will find some kind of award icon. To browse all available ribbons just press the "Ribbons" button on the right of the hall of fame. Currently the following ribbons are awarded to kerbals: Orbit around a celestial body (including Kerbin) Landing on a celestial body (including Kerbin – kerbals do reward even simple tasks, because most of the time they fail...) EVA in around a celestial body without a stable orbit (including Kerbin) EVA in an orbit around a celestial body (including Kerbin) EVA on a celestial body (including Kerbin – let's hope they will survive...) Docking around a celestial body (including Kerbin) Collision in a vessel Dangerous EVA while not on ground and not in a stable orbit Get into a Kerbin orbit in less than 200, 150 or 120 seconds Accumulated mission time of at least 5, 20, 50, 100, 500, 2000 or 5000 days (20, 80, 200, 400, 2000 or 20000 kerbin days) A return from single mission that lasted for at least 20, 50, 125, 500 oe 2000 days (80, 200, 500, 2000, or 8000 kerbin days) At least 5, 20 or 50 missions flown (i.e. vessel recovered) Done a splashdown landing First kerbal in space A ribbon for entering the sphere of influence of a celestial body (new in 0.2.2) Planting flags on celestial bodies Launching with solid fuel boosters of 10%, 20%, or 30% ship mass Achieved gee-force of 3, 4, 5, 6,..., 17 or 18 g Entering the deep athmosphere of Jool Orbiting the Sun at half or less the distance of Moho Moving a vehicle (hopefully a rover) on the surface of a celestial body Crew member of a heavy vehicle of at least 250, 500, 750, 1000, 1500, 2000 or 4000 tons Launching a heavy vehicle of at least 250, 500, 750, 1000, 1500, 2000 or 4000 (!) tons Landing a heavy vehicle of at least 250, 500, 750, 1000, 1500, 2000 or 4000 (puh!) tons Ribbons for 1h, 2h, 6h, 12h, 24h, 48h, 96h and 192h in EVA Ribbons for flying a vessel at Mach 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 15 below 20,000m in Kerbin atmosphere (0.4.1 and later) Ribbons for EVA Endurance, i.e. a single EVA of at least 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 90, 120, 180, 240 or 300 minutes. Ribbons for entering atmosphere of Eve, Duna, Jool,... A Ribbon for entering the sphere of influence of all celestial bodies (Grant Tour ribbon) A Ribbon for entering the sphere of influence of all moons of Jool (Jool Tour ribbon) Ribbons for completing contracts Ribbons achieving research (while in a mission) Ribbons for first completed mission as an engineer, pilot or scientist Ribbons for altitude, distance, speed and depth records A Ribbon for entering deep space beyond Eeloo (or whatever outermost planet may exist) Ribbons for landing in polar regions Ribbons for landing at high elevations on kerbin Ribbons for landing with less than 5% or 1% liquid fuel More than 500 ribbons in total! If a kerbal is the first one rewarded with a celestial ribbon, he will get the "First kerbal" ribbon of that kind (for example "First kerbal in orbit around Kerbin "). Some ribbons replace some others when earned. For example: The ribbon for EVA in an orbit around a celestial body replaces the ribbon for EVA around the same body without a stable orbit. The ribbon for 20 missions flown replaces the ribbon for 5 missions, etc. A tooltip gives a short description for each awarded ribbon. The ribbon graphics are inspired by the ribbons created by Unistrut (view this thread). But unfortunately I still do not have his permission to include his ribbon graphics into Final Frontier so I have created my own set of ribbons. They are using the same color and sometimes similar graphics (so they will look similar). If Unistrut will give his permission to use his ribbons, I will include them in a modified form with better graphics than mine. Some of the custom ribbons are created by SmarterThanMe and nothke and are used with their permission. Update: I finally got the permission to use the ribbons from Unistrut. But why is it called "Final Frontier"? Well, I'm quite surprised that nobody is asking, but I will try to explain it anyway. I was thinking about this plugin since the personal achievement mod by blizzy78. I liked the idea in general but in a sandbox game achievements for the player doesn't mean to much to me (but this is a personal opinion of course). Unfortunately I'm a Java/C++ programmer and C# is quite new for me, so time and missing skills/experience delayed the implementation until the first days of 2014. Then I decided to give it a try and created a small C# project for testing/learning the basics. The first decision to made was the name of the project. I do not exactly remember how I get the idea for the name, but I searched a bit in Youtube, Google and well, perhaps there was a replay of Star Trek in TV. I really don't know how I got the name, but I created a project "Final Frontier" and so it begun. And I don't like to change the name of a project afterwards without a specific reason. Installation: Important! Please read if you have trouble with Final Frontier. Just unzip the archive into the KSP folder. Don't move the FinalFrontier folder, it should be nested in the folder GameData/Nereid. If you are already using the toolbar you don't have to extract the toolbar folder. Do not change the installation path! Final Frontier must reside under GameData/Nereid Compatibility: Final Frontier should be compatible with most mods. There is one important exclusion from this rule: Mods that are changing names of celestial bodies or add new celestial bodies will cause trouble. All releases from 0.6.0 and later can handle the altering of celestial bodies. There is still one exclusion: All celestial bodies must have unique names. To get ribbons for new celestial bodies, you must install a planet pack (see above).

It works or at least I think it will work. But bugs may occur and don't try this plugin in a current game without a backup. And it its my first project in C#, so don't expect to much from the code . Kerbals are identified by their names. So don't add kerbals with the same name or Final Frontier will get confused. The plugin takes use of System.IO to store its data in the corresponding persistent.sfs of a game and its settings in GameData/FinalFrontier.dat. Release 0.8.x will do a scan for old save games in the saves folder and converts them upon permission by the user. There are no other write operations anywhere on the system.

  22. Kerbal Wind Implements wind and a continuous-gusts model for Ferram Aerospace Research. Provides GUI with settings for wind direction, speed and turbulence magnitude. The mod was Inspired by KerbalWeatherSystem by silverfox8124 and the addition of a wind speed hook to FAR's API. Dependencies FerramAerospaceResearch is a dependency. You need it or this mod won't even load. Blizzy's Toolbar is an optional dependency. Stock toolbar is also supported now. Which toolbars to use can be set in the configuration file which you have to edit in order to make the change. Download https://github.com/DaMichel/KerbalWind/releases (Source code on GitHub) Installation: Extract the zip file content into the GameData directory. Picz Credits I took an early release of KerbalWeatherSystem as template, gave it the polishing that it deserves, and thus turned it into this fun little stand-alone mod. Proper permissions were given, and now my code is released under the MIT license. Much thanks to Ippo for writing the FAR patch that lets you add wind, and Ferram4 for making FAR and accepting all those patches. License The code is subject to the MIT license (see GitHub page). In addition, the creators of derivative work must give credit to silverfox8124 and DaMichel. The toolbar icon is subject to the WTFPL (http://www.wtfpl.net/)
  23. Hello, and I'm currently writing a plugin, which enables 1-way animated engines, like the RL-10-B2 or the M-1. I want to know the animation state for "Deployed". Also, I would like the engine to not be able to activate if the animation is in progress, or if it hasn't started yet. Could someone please find the animation state for "Deployed"? Thanks, Bottle Rocketeer
  24. Kerbal Flight Data Displays essential information for piloting space planes, so you don't have to keep "immersion breaking" GUI panels open. It shows mach number, dynamic pressure, temperature warning, orbital data, and maybe some other goodies. It is not supposed to compete against other mods which show comprehensive information such as KerbalEngineer. Instead it should just show enough so that you don't feel like flying blind. Download Release Page on GitHub (Source code on Github) Installation: Extract the zip file content into the GameData directory. Notes: You can turn it on/off with the toolbar button (not shown on pic). With FAR you get a stall warning, too. If you find this interesting check out SteamGauges which is related but didn't cut it for me. How to change font sizes: Open GameData\KerbalFlightData\Plugins\PluginData\KerbalFlightData\settings.cfg in your favorite text editor and change the numbers. Changelog on github Acknowledgement Thanks for the SteamGauge source by Trueborn for a nice reference for how to get to various data (especially the reflection stuff was new to me). the API documentation project at https://github.com/Anatid/XML-Documentation-for-the-KSP-API by Anatid and contributors. Blizzy's Toolbar. Is supported, and was pretty much required for pre R20 releases. making planes fly Ferram4.

  25. MOD EDIT: AN UPDATED VERSION MAY BE FOUND HERE. VesselMover Continued v1.5.1 Pick up, move, rotate, and place landed vessels quickly and easily. NOTE: Since BahamutoD is now busy with real life and has graciously made it known that we can continue support in his stead, I'm reviving the mod in this thread and will continue its support. The original VesselMover thread is here: BahamutoD's Original VesselMover Thread Download Locations: Download from GitHub | Download from SpaceDock Installation: Extract the folder called "VesselMover" to KSP's GameData folder. For installation convenience, VesselMover is now CKAN listed, and supports KSP-AVC. KSP-AVC. This mod checks your installed mod versions against the mod's latest version. Let's you know when you need to update. CKAN. The Comprehensive Kerbal Archive Network (CKAN) Package Manager (CKAN) is a multi-platform app that manages nearly all your mods from one clean executable. Performs installs, updates, and uninstalls of your mods automatically. NOTE TO CKAN USERS: don't expect support for installs via CKAN. if the CKAN install fails, contact the CKAN folks, NOT me. Usage: Use the toolbar menu buttons to pick up or place a vessel. It must be landed or splashed down in order to pick it up. Use pitch/yaw (WASD by default) to move around. Use roll (Q/E by default) to roll, and translation buttons (IJKL by default) to rotate pitch and yaw. Use translate fwd/back (H or N by default) to auto rotate planes and rockets respectively to level/upright. Press Tab to toggle speed modes. For long distances, it works well to use "Ludicrous speed" in map mode! Click spawn vessel to open the craft browser. Select a craft, then select a place to spawn it. It will spawn in vessel-move mode so you can reposition it or rotate it before placing it down. Support: If you expect me to provide support for issues with this mod, I will expect that you have read and will follow these instructions.
