Scotskerb posted a topic in Add-on ReleasesHi. I found this amazing mod that generates n-body orbital mechanics known as Principia, by @eggrobin. Even the planets work with the new mechanics, knocking each other's orbits around in a quite interesting fashion, the same way it's done in real life. It even reworks the Jool system to make sure the moons don't go completely out of whack. The problem is, it only seems to work with stock KSP. There are many planet packs out there which do not get reworked for compatibility with this mod. What I am doing with Planet Patches is adding a patch for each planet mod I come across that has unstable orbits with Principia, repositioning the unstable bodies to make them stable. Modified Planet Packs: Planned Planet Packs: I am open to requests. In fact, I plan on building this entire thing on requests Requests I will not take: Half-baked mods - what I mean here is, mods that are so in-development that they can't even work properly on their own. For example, if the SOIs are insanely sized in a way that completely messes up one's ability to travel. Kopernicus mods from before KSP 1.2.2 - sorry, but the earliest KSP version for Principia is 1.2.2, and I really can't go back further than that, unless the mod does work on 1.2.2 or above. Other than that, I hope to take every single request that I can! Download - Github
maccollo posted a topic in Challenges & Mission ideasSeeing as Principia is getting to the point where it is quite useable, it seems to be a good time to do this. The challenge is fairly straight forward. A space station has been placed in a magical square orbit around Mun. The objective is to pilot the cargo vessel, which is in low Kerbin orbit, and rendezvous with the station, using as little delta V as possible. You will need a 1.2.2 installation of KSP with a stock planetary setup, and Principia Catalan, then load this save file. https://www.dropbox.com/s/d9vbdw0wba0jkxv/rendezvous.zip Rules: No use of cheats or performance altering mods. Telemetry and visual enhancement mods are allowed. Since this is not a docking challenge, you only have to park within a 100 meter distance from the station, with a relative velocity less than 0.3 m/s. Submissions are scored based on how much delta V remains after rendezvous is complete. The Kerbals must not exit the station. Also crashing into the station to slow down is not allowed The time limit is 5 Kerbin years. This is just a technicality since I can't be certain the orbit of the station will be stable 1000 years from now. This is not a super serious challenge so extensive documentation is not really required. Just post an screenshot showing your overall approach, and one after you've completed the challenge showing how much delta V you have left. However, feel free to show your approach in greater detail if you complete the challenge with a small amount of delta V.
Like Principia? Want contracts utilizing Lagrange points? Now you can have them. This mod extends Contract Configurator to let you configure contracts that can make sure your within a range of distances between two celestial bodies (a parent and a child), as well as an angle between the child body's prograde vector, and the line between the vessel and the child body (useful for differentiating between L4 and L5). Download: Github View the Source Installation: Copy the GameData folder into the KSP root directory and merge them with the existing GameData folder. This will not make contracts. View the github repo on how to configure your own contracts. Feel free to make some and share them with others! Changelog:
