  1. Rational Resources is designed to operate on the Community Resource Pack or the WBI Classic Stock resources and to strip out the entirely random resource distributions and to apply distribution templates (carefully configured groups of resource distributions) according to the logically expected class and composition of a body. Rational Resources is inspired by Realistic Atmospheres made by @OhioBob and is part of the JNSQ (the planet pack) experience. While this mod is installed, un-configured bodies will have no resources at all. This mod may inflate your ModuleManager cache quite a bit. Notice that the logo image tells the following: Mun has a sizeable portion of MetalOre and Oxygen, but no Water (will be handled by biome specific config) and no Uraninite. Kerbin has a sizeable portion of Rock and Silicates, and there's a display for crust, ocean and atmo. Duna has a sizeable portion of CO2 in crust and atmo (not in legend), MetalOre, RareMetals and Uraninite, but no Minerals or Silicates. This mod enables planet makers to easily assign these distribution templates to their planet packs and skip the headaches of figuring out and writing the individual nodes themselves, and assorting all of their writings into several per-resource config files. Active CRP Resources Surface and Atmosphere Ammonia, CarbonDioxide, ExoticMinerals, Gypsum, LqdHe3, Hydrates, Hydrogen, MetalOre, Methane, Minerals, Nitrogen, Ore, Oxygen, RareMetals, Rock, Silicates, Substrate, Uraninite, Water. Ocean LqdAmmonia, LqdCO2, LqdMethane, LqdNitrogen, LqdOxygen, Water. Star Antimatter, Karborundum, LqdHe3, Hydrogen, LqdDeuterium. The resources above are preferred and used. are patched to display them all. Ocean resources only show non-zero values when the scanner vehicle is splashed. The Star series templates apply resource bands to a narrow and general classification of stars, automatically making them all viable as mining destinations for interstellar vessels. The expected members of this seres are: Yellow; Red Dwarf; Red Giant; Blue Giant. Due to a very nasty bug in stock, any resource bands around a star can only have a a maximum span of somewhere under 2 Gigameters. WBI Classic Stock system support: Rational Resources shows in the WBI play mode switch UI. (Picture needs to be updated) Assigning a template to a planet is as easy as: Current templates ISRU With omnipotent Ore being stripped of its Godhood, the following ISRU chains are proposed and encouraged for use by seasoned modders. Ore abundance is capped to 5% and its presence chance to 80%. It will be inconvenient for most players... but it will still be around. Ore tanks will be changed, at least, to hold the cryogenic input resources. Players may find themselves forced towards using Hydrolox rocketry since the required resources (Ore or Carbon Dioxide) for LiquidFuel may often be scarce meanwhile the requirements for Hydrolox (Hydrates, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Water) can be quite abundant. Compatibility Due to the listed resources and the nature of Rational Resources, compatibility instantly extends between configured planet packs and the following mods: Kerbalism (consumable resources only) TAC Life Support Near Future Tech suite Hydrolox rocketry mods (including BlueDog Design Bureau, Cryogenic Engines, Kerbal Atomics) Potential Methalox rocketry mods Some resources and their distributions are conditionally spared while the rest are removed. Spared resources include ArgonGas, XenonGas, Karbonite and Karborundum (condition: Karbonite's specific placements like the overabundance on Eve are disallowed). Purged resources include Dirt (used by MKS alone but supplanted with more Rock) and any other mod that adds resources (and especially extremely handwaved ones) such as The Gold Standard. But a provision exists to allow such resources to not be purged. If you somehow still have "RealisticResources" please delete that before installing.

  2. The Community Resource Pack is a clearinghouse for common resource configurations as well as resource distribution configs for the stock resource system. It gives modders a toolkit of commonly used resources to play with, and helps us all work together in the same resource playground. The CRP has two goals: Goal 1: Establish a common set of planetary resources. To make this happen, CRP will include a consolidated list of distinct resource configurations designed to be used with the stock resource system. Examples include Water, Substrate, Uraninite, and others. Goal 2: Avoid surprising our users by stomping over resources. When mods both define the same resource, bad things can happen for the player. So the CRP pincludes a bunch of resources that modders have agreed to consolidate on. Including ones from Karbonite and MKS/OKS (of course), Universal Storage, KSPI-E, RealFuels, Near Future Technologies, and others. Additional mods are supported where we've decided not to break their stuff, even though they are not (yet) active participants in CRP (kinda like santa claus handing out gifts). Examples include EL (for RocketParts), and TAC-LS (for life support stuff). If this goal is achieved, even for the few dozen resources we already have listed, I'm be thrilled, since being nice is a lot more beneficial than randomly stomping on things. So if you're sold, head on down to the bottom of this post for links and goodness. If you are not sold, read on. "I am sad! you're trying to control my stuff!" Not really. I just don't want to break your stuff, and I hope you don't want to break mine. All of this is totally optional, if you don't wish to participate, then peace out and rock on. "There's no way this will ever work, people can't agree!" I dunno, I have enough already agreeing that I am pretty darn happy. Given the current level of adoption and cooperation, I think we've landed in an excellent place. "But I don't want you mixing space cows in my ultra-realistic electrolysis sim!" Then don't use space cows. But maybe someone wants to have a nuclear-powered space cow RTG or something. In which case, you probably don't want them breaking your electrolysis sim. "But... you can't mix space cows and Plutonium-239!" Sure you can. Maybe you don't want to in your mod, or in the mods you select for your own save game, but people are going to do all kinds of crazy stuff. And I expect you'd prefer it if your Plutonium-239 to not suddenly triple in mass mid-flight because SuPaKerBaL9000 modified the AAA_SpaceCows mod you downloaded for your kid's save to triple the mass of Plutonium-239. "What about disparities in resource density and atmospheric pressure, or gas compression?!" Here's reality. Most of us just want to play a game. Hence, CRP has no opinion on units, compression, cost, densities, etc. - that's up to the mod creators. And if something is good enough to be adopted by a couple of mods, then it's good enough to join the club. In the end, this is curated. But the only considerations on the table are ensuring stuff plays well in our space lego game together, not in nitpicking physics or chemistry, and most certainly not in dictating how stuff should be measured. "But what if I want my own resources?!" Go for it. CRP does not dictate what resources your mod has or how you use them, just that you don't create ones that conflict with ones already there in CRP. "But this is more work for me! I am sad!" Actually less. Just include a dependency like you would Firespitter or any other similar mod. Shop for resources. Done. But hey, if you'd rather have SuPaKerBal9000 wreck your mod, rock on. "I'm still sad! I won't use this!" Ok that's fine too - peace out "Ok I'm sold.. how do I use this thing in my mod?" Since CRP is based on the stock resource system, it's super lightweight! Include the CommunityResourcePack folder with your mod, and you're done. And please don't modify any of the configs you download either, as that kinda defeats the entire purpose, and is downright mean Lastly, don't supersede CRP resources with your own definitions for any of the included resources - that's almost as bad as modifying them. The whole point of the club is that we all play nice. If you want in the club, awesome! But please don't join the club just to trash the clubhouse Mods that bundle CRP MKS/OKS Near Future Technologies Karbonite Asteroid Recycling Technologies Freight Transportation Technologies NearFuels RealFuels KSPI-E DangIt!

  3. Configurable Containers Requirements ModuleManager AT_Utils (already included) Download from SpaceDock For Players This mod converts fuel tanks and resource containers so that you can change the resource(s) they hold in Editor and in Flight. Supported Mods Configurable Containers support many part packs and mods: TweakScale ProceduralParts Parts with stock resources converted: Stock KW Rocketry Mk2 Expansion Mk3 Expansion SpaceY-Lifters SpaceY-Expanded Fuel Tanks Plus Modular Rocket Systems Standard Propulsion Systems Near Future Propulsion Spherical and Toroidal Tank Pack OPT Spaceplane Parts (made by octarine-noise) …more will come. Supported resources: Stock TAC Life Support Extrapalentary Launchapads Near Future Propulsion All USI All KSPIE …more will come. Types of the Containers Tank Type is a set of resources that, gamewise, have something in common. For example gases, or liquid chemicals, or metals. There are also two kinds of configurable containers. Simple containers belong to a single Tank Type (which can be changed in Editor) and can hold only a single resource. In flight this resource may be changed only if the container is empty, and only within its Tank Type. Compound containers are in fact collections of simple containers inside of a single part. In Editor you can partition the inside space of such part, creating as many simple containers as you need. The only restriction imposed by KSP is that a part cannot have two identical resources stored. So if you have two containers for liquid chemicals in a part, only one of them can hold Liquid Fuel. Compound containers have a dedicated user interface so as not to clutter part menu: For Modders Source Code CC is a part of the AT_Utils framework. It provides the SwitchableTank module that allows for creation of container parts for predefined sets of resources switchable in-flight. Sets are configured in a separate .cfg file and are intended to contain similar things like gases (one set), liquid chemicals (another) and so on. Another module Configurable Containers provide is the TankManager which enables in-editor partitioning of a container, effectively converting it into a set of independent SwitchableTanks. The third, utility module named SimpleTextureSwitcher allows you to cycle through a predefined set of textures for the model or a part of the model, so a container may be easily identified. It is now part of the main AT_Utils.dll, not the CC itself. Acknowledgments My patrons on Patreon. Thank you for your support!

  4. UPR is a "mod". Really it's a bunch of config files and module manager patches but it's goal is to make a complete integrated mod experience for ksp. This means it integrates some selected mods together to create a system which is universal (i.e same UI, Resources and converters for all systems) The design concept is for it to be a Semi-realistic easyish stock looking and balanced game Source Code: https://github.com/Lach01298/UPR Current dependencies: WildBlue Industry's Tools Snacks CryoTanks Community Resource Pack Community Tech Tree DynamicBatteryStorage Rational Resources recommend/Integrated Mods Making History DLC Breaking Ground DLC WBI Pathfinder WBI DSEV NF Electrical NF Propulsion KIS KAS Features: Semi-realistic planetary resources i.e your not going to find every resource on every planet like what CRP is currently Semi-realistic life support (Food, Oxygen, Water) Planetary Base building/ Colonization Semi-realistic ISRU Metholox and Hydrolox fuel chains and engines part and equipment production chains integrated tech tree Other Stuff help and suggestions are appreciated and so feel free to do so Developmental notes This seems like a lot and it is. But this started as trying to get some of my favorite ksp mods to fit seamlessly together and separately trying to make them a little bit more realistic. Then it got all lump together into what currently is UPR. Thus it really should have another name but it was separate "mods" so i just kept one name that had a short acronym: UPR
  5. SIMPLEX Resources Introducing an extended resource system for Kerbal Space Program. Rather than having a single non descriptive Ore for mining and converting to anything and possibly everything, this mod removes the stock Ore and replaces it. HydrateOre contains organics, and is used for either support Life Support mods, or making rocket fuel (comparable to stock ISRU with stock ore). NaturalOre is used to generate MetalParts to build rockets (using Extraplanetary Launchpads). RareOre is used to generate CustomParts used to build rockets (using Extraplanetary Launchpads ) but is a scarcer resource. XenonGas is now able to be to extracted from the atmosphere of certain planets using an upgrade of the Atmospheric Fluid Spectro-Variometer. Asteroids will contain these resources. Due to limitations of KSP, all drills will harvest all resources from an asteroid. Download from Spacedock Requires Module Manager (not included). Licence is CC-BY-NC-SA http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/ Who would like to use this mod? Anyone who wants to flavour their stockish game a little, without jumping down a realism rabbit hole. In addition, this mod configures the extraordinary Extraplanetary Launchpads originally by skykooler, and maintained by taniwha. https://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/54284-151-extraplanetary-launchpads-v633/ Two resources are introduced for this purpose, extending the vanilla approach of EL. MetalParts and CustomParts are used in a unique recipes, making off world construction a little more complicated with two resources needed. Isn't there a resource pack that everyone uses? I have worked to avoid conflicts with the extensive Community Resources Pack maintained by RoverDude. This mod is intended to be used separately to CRP. Mainly because I didn't like playing when mods provided tanks for dozens of resources that I would never use. Taking both pills won't cause serious damage. What part changes are made? The stock drills, Drill-O-Matic Junior (small radial drill), Drill-O-Matic (large radial drill) will collect all ores unless supported mods are installed. However, if any of appropriate supported mods are introduced the stock drills will only mine HydrateOre. Supported Mods: Extraplanetary Launchpads for construction of bases and craft https://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/54284-151-extraplanetary-launchpads-v633/ Stockalike Mining Extension for additional drills, harvesters, extractors and condensers https://spacedock.info/mod/354 Keridian Dynamics for addition parts for Extraplanetary Launchpads https://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/116987-wip122-keridian-dynamics-dev-thread-last-update-2017-01-21/ Baha EPL Redrilled for additional Launchpads, mining drills and ISRU https://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/116987-wip122-keridian-dynamics-dev-thread-last-update-2017-01-21/ Ventral Drill for Stock ISRU A single stack drill https://spacedock.info/mod/1328 SIMPLEX Living https://spacedock.info/mod/2067 Converts all the ISRU and drills to kerbalism with the Simplex profile. Simple Fuel Switch by Snark https://spacedock.info/mod/2053 The three Ore tanks are now switchable variants rather than separate for each resource. Near Future Construction by Nertea https://spacedock.info/mod/563 The Octo and Hex Girder tanks have Ore removed and HydrateOre, NaturalOre and RareOre added. Further mods to be supported: Global Construction, Life Support mods. Recommended Mods: SIMPLEX Techtree An excellent techtree that allows for Advancing Before Crew (PBC, UBM style play), and ensures a balance with EL and supporting mods. https://spacedock.info/mod/1848 SIMPLEX Living A kerbalism profile and optional move of Minmus to Eeloo. https://spacedock.info/mod/2067 Acknowledgements and Thanks: To skykooler, and maintained by taniwha for Extraplanetary Launchpads To allista for inspiration from Global Constuction To Eleusis La Arwall for initially allowing a possible inclusion of the KD furnances.

Thank you so much! Peace.
  6. Current Version v0.5.5 Solaris Hypernautics is proud to bring you the very latest in virtual particle tech! This a parts pack that takes the all parts of the venerable Ion Hybrid Electric Pack, http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/threads/31286-0-22-Ion-Hybrid-Electric-Pack-30-08-13-Soon-FKSP!!!-See-Development-Monitor, and reimagines them in the next generation propulsion devices that use virtual particles! Now we've expanded our line of technology and engines to include adaptations of Nazari1382's Aurora Atomic Thruster part, nil2work's Retro Future Planes parts, dtobi's Asteroid Cities parts, and various of Zzz's parts. This shows all the parts the mod used to only have, it currently has a full set of comprehensive components. Long ranged designed for high speed aerocaptures, the Fafner Descent Vessel. CRAFT FILE DOWNLOAD LINK: http://kerbalx.com/Carbonjvd/Fafner-Descent-Vessel Massive IPV meant to transport small vessels and modules within its cargo bays to any destination. Can even function as a mobile operations station and refueler, the Armetis IPV. CRAFT FILE DOWNLOAD LINK: http://kerbalx.com/Carbonjvd/Armetis-IPV So what do these tiny particles have to offer when I already have nuclear engines and warp drives? Well, for one these babies don't require the power budget of a small country, though plenty of power is still advised. These drives don't use exhaust so you'll never have to worry about accidently blasting away those fragile solar panels! Electricity is the only thing you need to keep the whole system running, so no more running out of fuel or need for mining! How do I use this crazy new technology?! Easy as one-two-three! One: Generate them via a Virtugenic (and a lot of power). Two: Store it in a Stasis Tank. Three: Propel your ship with it! Told you it's as easy as one-two-three! I heard that you've expanded beyond virtual particles, what else is there?! Glady you asked! We now also have a wide range of parts that utilize the exotic reaches of magnetic fields and dust, yes dust! Our scientists and witch doctors have devised ways to make dust useful like getting xenon out of it or compressing it into ore, which is actually useful. For our line of magnetic fields research, mostly from our bored co-workers playing with the fridge magnets in the break room, we've figured out how harness their power as an ablative to keep systems cool! How cool is that?! Thanks to some serious work with an unmentioned scientist, we've devised even more ways to get power from various resources, nuclear power here we come! I'm sold, so what parts does this pack actually have? Passive Intakes for collecting compressed atmosphere. Huge Docking Port for connecting really big ships. Nuclear Fuel Tanks for holding blutonium. Industrial Nuclear Facilities for refining ore into blutonium. Advanced Grabbers for more options to attach to asteroids. Stasis Tanks for storing virtual particles. Virtugenics for generating virtual particles using lots of power. Kannae Drives for moving vessels and probes using only virtual particles and some serious power. Side Adaptor for attaching things on the side. Virtual Ore Reactors for powering things from ore and virtual particles, the bigger one even has a backup reactor that uses xenon instead of ore. Catalytic Engines for higher thrust rocket propulsion and the ability to draw dust from any atmosphere. Magnetic Drag Array for atmospheric entry with huge vessels, uses its magnetic charge as an ablative, has a built-in SAS system and cooling system. Nuclear Jet Engines for travel through an atmosphere without having to worry about needing oxygen. Retro-Propulsive Unit for a heat shield and an engine all in one part, uses it magnetic charge as an ablative. Nuclear Plasma Engine for when need the absolute biggest space borne propulsion using liquid fuel and electricity. Ionic Plasma Thruster for when don't need a monster engine, but a modest propulsion using liquid fuel and electricity. Magnetic Cooling Unit for dropping the temperature at the cost of power, perfect for fighting overheating. Virtual Dust Containment Tanks for storing dust and virtual particles, though the compression requires constant power or it'll leak virtual particles. Spherical Dust Tanks for storing dust and only dust. Dust Accumulator for gathering dust in any environment over time, but requires constant power to keep the magnetic trapping field up. Dust Processing Unit for extracting xenon from dust or compressing dust into ore, both using a lot of power at the risk of slight overheating. Nuclear Reactors for using ore and a bit of electricity to produce a ton of power, but it tends to overheat so make sure to use the built-in cooling system that also takes power. Nuclear Forge for producing power like a reactor but can also transynthesize virtual particles directly into dust, also has a cooling system built-in. Thermal RCS for maneuvering massive ships without then need for an army of normal RCS thrusters. Spectrometer for getting an area's composition to get some juicy science. Virtugenic Refinery for processing dust into more ore and converting dust into virtual particles. Dust Ring for higher speed drawing in of dust. Solar Wind Panel for truely passive dust collection from the Sun. Micropulsed Magnetic Drive for high efficiency burst of acceleration at the cost of endurance. Zurbin Nuclear Drive for massive propulsion on par with the Indominus in and out of the atmosphere.

  7. Download via the USI Catalog Page LOTS OF STUFF CHANGED WITH 1.0 - DELETE YOUR OLD STUFF FIRST! Introducing Karbonite Plus (K+) - New resources and parts for Karbonite K+ adds new resource and gameplay elements as well as supporting parts to Karbonite. K+ requires Karbonite (not included) to use. Enhancements and Changes included in K+ New resource: Karborundum. Valuable and incredibly fuel efficient, but also very hard to get. It can be harvested on the surfaces of Eeloo and Eve, or by a solar collector within approximately 2000 meters of the sun's surface. Hats off to nli2work for his awesome rover-sized models, and for TMarkos for being awesome and collaborative! New parts: Tiny radial Karbonite/Karborundum drill. 0.625m form factor, can be node or surface attached. Also KAS-portable! Deployable Karborundum scanner (NOTE: Karborundum is only detectable on the surface, or at altitudes lower than approximately 500m over the terrain - so bring your Rovers and nape of the earth (NOE) flyers). New fuel tank - the Karry Kan - great for small quantities of Karbonite or LFO. Comes in two sizes - a surface-mountable single Kan, and a double-Kan (great for the Packrat Rover). Rover-sized generator, for powering your Karborundum operations on the fly. KASable, surface and stack attachable. New radial tanks to store Karborundum in three sizes - a Jumbo radial tank, an inline tank cluster, as well as a 0.625m mini tank. The mini tank is KAS-enabled. A Karborundum sample tank. Luxuriantly expensive, but saves you the trip to eeloo. Made for testing purposes. Warning: Will self-decouple and explode when empty! Hilarity may ensue. A new particle collector with slightly better range (at the cost of efficiency and energy use), allowing it to skim the sun's surface picking up stray Karborundum particles. The Karborundum Fusion Drive (in two sizes - 1.25m and 2.5m) Expensive, incredibly efficient, but require significant EC to operate, and runs on Karborundum. A small but adorable 0.625m Karbonite engine. This one has the added benefit of taking some of the vented exhaust and converting it into monopropellant for later use. Dev Note: The Karborundum engines are absolutely OP compared to stock engines (we're in KSPI territory with these), This is to balance the absurd difficulty in getting fuel for them. Tech tree wise, Karborundum-specific parts will be under Nuclear Propulsion. Karbonite bits will be under Fuel Systems.

  8. Привет. У меня вопрос. Я скачал этот мод и появилось 2 тренировки. также сканер поверхности показывает много разных руд и газов. но я не могу понять, где их хранить и как добывать. Я запустил их на космодроме, но там было написано что-то вроде: «Земля полна». Мне нужно настроить отдельный режим с ресурсами или я делаю что-то не так
  9. ok this may not be the best place for this question but what are funds worth? I think paper money is a representative of a commodity like gold, silver, platinum. now in terms of ksp we have liquid fuel, oxidizer, monopropellant, solid fuel, Xenon, and Ore. so how do you determine what value the money is worth. on the wiki it says that ore cost 0.02 VF per unit of ore and if you fill one tank It only amounts to 30 VF so what is the worth of one fund unit?
  10. Hello everyone! Because I'm new to mod making (this is my first mod), I thought I'd try starting out with a relatively simple mod. I use a lot of mods, a few of which require Community Resource Pack as a dependency. Thus, whenever I scan a body for resources, I end up with a fairly large list of things, from Water to CarbonDioxide. However, I never end up using most of these resources, and as most mods only add converter modules for a few of them, the vast majority end up ignored. Many of these resources could be integrated fairly well with Stock mechanics without necessitating new parts or complex processing chains. Thus, this mod attempts to create uses for several resources added by CRP. This is essentially a collection of patches designed to allow stock parts to harvest and convert the resources added by CRP. It will be fully modular, so you don't end up with redundant converters or harvesters for resources you don't want, and it will only use Stock parts (primarily because I have no idea how to texture or model things, but keep that a secret). The stock drills are used for crustal resources, the atmospheric fluid spectro-variometer is used for atmospheric resources, and I plan on using the radial air intake for oceanic resources. For simplicity, resources such as LiquidFuel and Oxidizer are generalized, and are not intended to be fully accurate. In addition, the conversion factors for most of these patches are undoubtedly wrong, partially due to a desire for simplicity and partially because I can't be bothered. If you have a suggestion for a more realistic conversion factor, feel free to tell me! If I ever get into RO, I might consider adding patches for realistic ISRU, but for now I consider this to be a short-ish term project designed to practice my glorious and expansive config-editing skills. This might change depending on community reaction, but don't expect too much for now. In addition to this, I plan on including simplified conversion patches for those who don't want to bother carrying tanks for ~5 separate resources; an early example of this is substituting H2 for Ore (electrolyzed water ice) in the Simple Sabitier conversion. Downloads Installation 1. Download the mod 2. Install CRP and ModuleManager, either from the bundled download or from a separate source 3. Select the modules you wish to install.

  11. Hello, I can't scan resources on asteroids with surface scanner module, What can be the reason ?
  12. Hi there! So I have this problem with all of my vessels with a scansat probe installed. Basically even if they are at the optimal orbit, they will scan the planet's map, but they won't show any resources whatsoever. I've also installed MKS and Khetane, is it possible that those mods are creating some sort of conflincts?
  13. Idiot Lights r0.0.1 It's taken me about a year but, this mod is being integrated into the Kerbal Electric Mod Please check that forum thread for the latest developments.
  14. I really prefer Karbonite to the stock KSP resource system but my mild OCD tendencies really hate it when redundant/unused systems pile up on each-other. Is there a way to disable the stock resource system and just replace it with Karbonite?
  15. Hey all. As of late I've been playing around a bit with module manager and just editing .cfg files, mostly as a way of familiarizing myself more with KSP's back-end, and partly because I do have some interest in maybe developing some kind of mods in the future, even if only for practice/personal use. Anyways, I spent the better part of my afternoon and evening today playing around with resource definitions and modules, and as a practice exercise I've been trying to make a simple set of .cfg files for a resource pack (Stuff like water ice, carbon, uranium ore, and processing these materials into other things with ISRU units). I get the gist of what I'm doing but there are a few things that I've yet to find answers to, and I'm looking for advice. Forgive me if my questions have been asked before. I did some googling, and found next to nothing, so I suspect this isn't a problem, but if so, please feel free to point me to the exisiting posts. 1) in the ResourcesGeneric.cfg file (GameData/Squad/Resources), what is hsp, and is it worth modifying for a new resource? 2) in the Ore.cfg file, I understand that I'm looking at the resource distribution parameters, but I don't know what Variance or Dispersal correspond to, also 3) is the PressenceChance parameter per planet? Per Biome? Per savefile? 4) still in Ore.cfg, what is ResourceType? I've yet to see an example of anything not equal to zero for that parameter... 5) It occurs to me that a few resource parts are configured by default to only work with the standard "Ore" resource, such as the Narrow Band Scanner, and the Drill Parts. Is there a simple way to make either of these function for all available resources, or must I add new modules to the .cfg for every mineable resource? 6) how do these changes apply to asteroids? do I have to use a MM patch to add mineral resource to a roid? Or are all of the other resource definition and distribution cfgs enough? I'm sure that I'm yet to encounter more questions on the topic of Resources, ISRUs, Drills, and scanners, so If you can think of anything else helpful for working on this kind of stuff, please, don't hesitate to fire your pointers my way! Happy Launching, happy Modding!
  16. In my mod GTI MultiMode Intakes, I am allowing switching between different intake modes. When doing this, I'm also changing the resources associated with the intake, like intakeair or intakeatm. However, so far, I've relied on "part.Resources.Clear();". This removes all resources in the part, and then I can add the new resource I want back in. However, this have one mayor drawback, it removes all resources, and not just the ones I want it to, namely the ones I target. So in my latest try, I used the below methods to target only relevant resources. However, I cannot seem to get them to work. public bool Remove(PartResource res); public bool Remove(string resName); public bool Remove(int resID); I tried as follows (i merged the three overload methods directly into the example below, I do NOT run them at the same time, I comment out when testing). Debug messages says that I do indeed run the "Remove()" method where expected and on the expected resource. The remove methods return true!!! But my engine continues to consume IntakeAir even when switched away, so that the resource should have been removed. When I use "Clear()" the engine flameout immediately as it should. And listing all resources in the part after all show that the resource was not removed. bool preserveResource; PartResource partResourceDef; //Evaluated all resources in part for (int i = 0; i < currentPart.Resources.Count; i++) { preserveResource = true; GTIDebug.Log("Check for resource removal: " + currentPart.Resources[i].resourceName, iDebugLevel.DebugInfo); //compare all resources to the target resources for (int j = 0; j < modes.Count; j++) { //If it is a target resource, mark it for replacement if (modes[j].resourceName == currentPart.Resources[i].resourceName) { //Remove resources managed by this mod preserveResource = false; break; } } //Remove resource if it is marked for replacement if (!preserveResource) { GTIDebug.Log("Removing Resource: " + currentPart.Resources[i].resourceName, iDebugLevel.DebugInfo); //try 1 currentPart.Resources.Remove(currentPart.Resources[i].resourceName) //try 2 currentPart.Resources.Remove(PartResourceLibrary.Instance.GetDefinition(currentPart.Resources[i].resourceName).id) //try 3 partResourceDef = currentPart.Resources.Get(currentPart.Resources[i].resourceName); currentPart.Resources.Remove(partResourceDef) } } So my questions are, does Remove() work at all? if yes, then can anybody point me toward what could be wrong in my code?
  17. The Resources in a Can or RIAC for short is a mobile, small and compact mining IRSU for small purposes. Able to be stored in very small cargo bays and land on small distant moons (Engines released pending completion.) Even tho it is of small size and stature it will be well suited to supplying roving probes with required fuel for much less then a full mining rig. This mod is still being worked on but it has reached a point where others can try it out and give feed back on changes or additions. Most parts are partly balanced, I need to mess around with weight, costs and storage amounts a bit more but it is at a usable state for now. More parts will be coming soon and I will be fixing the location of parts once I figure out the way to make a custom tab. <blockquote class="imgur-embed-pub" lang="en" data-id="a/YyLIU"><a href="//imgur.com/YyLIU">RIAC Development</a></blockquote><script async src="//s.imgur.com/min/embed.js" charset="utf-8"></script> Imgur Album Future Plans -A probe (possibly combined into the core/cores) (Complete) -A half core that can be used as a land based rover.

  18. I've encountered what seems an odd phenomenon, that has helped strand a Kerbal in Munar orbit, without a ship. Here's a craft file: Selene 1 Mod 2 I launch this ship with RCS turned off, using main engine gimballing for control until staging. Once I stage away the booster, fairing, and nose cone (above 70 km only due to a spectacular demonstration of the drag still present at 40+ km and 1000+ m/s), I turn on RCS so I can maneuver before igniting the second stage engine to circularize (the second stage also performs transMunar insertion and Munar orbit capture before being deorbited on the Mun). This is where the odd thing happens. It takes a lot of RCS authority to turn the remaining stack at this stage (initially, with full tanks in all modules), and the center of mass is far enough forward that the Lf/O thrusters on the second stage tank get a lot of help from the four sets of RCS quads on the lander and pusher stages. However, the RCS on the lander and pusher stages don't consume fuel evenly from the command pods and RCS tanks, despite crossfeed being enabled on every decoupler and stack separator. Rather, the lander's RCS fuel is depleted first, with the command pod being emptied before the stack RCS tank is used, and both of those being burned dry before any fuel is drawn from the pusher (top module at launch). This doesn't seem to be a case of the game drawing propellant from the lowest tank first, which would make some sense for the usual staging order; rather, the command pod fuel is being depleted first. The only solution I see is to remember to manually disable the command pod and stack tank feeds before launch, and then manually re-enable them before I'm ready to decouple the pusher and turn it around to dock with the lander (a la Apollo, which is the configuration I adopt before Munar orbit insertion so the pusher is ready to maneuver itself and the lander as soon as the second stage is jettisoned). Am I missing something relative to propellant consumption order? I think this is the first time it's really matter which tank empties first -- but this time, it led to a Kerbal launching from Mun without enough RCS propellant left to assist when the main engine's tanks ran dry before establishing orbit. The pusher pilot, meanwhile, was sitting in a safe orbit, with a nearly full RCS tank, and no way to help...
  19. Welp, first time posting on this site as far as I can remember. I basically have a very simple (Though probably not at all simple to make) request for an idea I thought of while watching "Super Colonization" by Toxic Timewaster. Long story short, He said something along the lines of it taking 10 units of ore per 1 unit of karborundom to run his engines. Basically the request is this; There are mods to change the type of fuel in a fuel tank, and there are mods that let you make specific sized fuel tanks but as far as I'm aware, there is no mod for being able to put in some numbers to specifically fill a tank. What I want is a multi-fuel tank (Lets use 110 units as an example) to be able to customize its exact values, like if you set it 10 to 1, it's be able to fill automatically 100 units of ore and 10 units of Karborundom.
  20. Currently several lifesupport mods exist which is great. The user can choose by himself/herself whatever lifesupport mod most coïncides with his/her wishes. What is not so great is that every LS mod uses it's own resources. Take Food. In another mod it's called KolonySupplies, in a third N.O.M.S. My request to all LFS developers is to standardise resource names so parts of different mods can become interchangable.
  21. I have begun very basic work on a series of engines that combine mass driver, plasma creation, and the ultimate in recycling. Engines will have two grades, O.R.C. and E.L.F. Otherwise Really Cool Engines will heat its "fuel" mass to high gaseous state, ionize and expel for force. High cost of energy to the matter's density and boiling point, a bit more for ionization andd magnetic expulsion. So far a 1.25 I call Pele and a 2.5 I call Vulcan. Only fuel at this moment is the junkiest, but would be universal otherwise in being Rock. Performance curves in atmo like LN-V. So no mining rock on kerbal to get to orbit, well not reasonably. I am not making a cheat, but basing this on real scientific principles. I said basing, accuracy will of course deviate and that can be debated, but will not be this threads sole purpose. Stage two is in concept only ATM, everything is the same but more so, to get Electrodeless Lorentz Forces from a plasma you make from whatever. Thinking once I get how to flow and channel the thermal models in KSPI-E, I will use that as a power core. Next steps is an enigine module that will use a fuel data dictionary for settings about boiling points and specific heats, as well as density. Then the fuel determines the engines force, as all else will be as a level zone. This will make an interesting alternative for Depleted Fuel and similar things. It will be high density, so you would get 2-3 times the effect from rock in an ELF, but boiling points are much higher I believe, so an ORC maybe only 1.5 to 2, with higherr electric charge per second. These engines will take nearly impractical amounts of power. Nearly because the nuclear option is literally on the table, and will tend to pay off, or at least get close. I am looking to Coordinate with USI and KSPI-E, at least. ~Rough Draft~
  22. I am making some science parts and I want to make them use resources to operate. For example: Rodent Research, uses five rodents. How can I do that?
  23. DOH!!! I'm a dummy! I forgot I had switched to my development computer and hadn't updated Module Manager. So my mod Thermal Nuclear Turbines relies on the resource IntakeATM. I was just testing my engines for 1.1.2 when I discovered the intakes won't generate the resource anymore. The MM patch for intakes. Oh well... Here is a pic of some cute confused Kerbals... Sorry guys. They think something got jammed into the intake... poor Kerbals.
  24. I have a question and maybe a mod idea. What is the point of stock narrow band scanner (the hexagonal thing) if it does not work on a planet without prior sweep by the big M700 scanner? 1) What sense does it make mechanics-wise? It's a scanner or it isn't? 2) What's the point of bringing one at all, if you already have the data from M700, and can see ore-rich areas? If you oh so wish to win few hours over few days of mining by moving to especially rich vein - there's surface detector for that. Won't it be a better idea to have two scanners different in mass and size, with different capabilities? Trading smaller size for data limited to area directly below your ship, compared to instant whole-planet scan by the big bulky polar scanner?
  25. Let's say I'm in the vehicle editor, and I want to trap an event when one of the following things happen: The amount of resource in the container was changed (e.g. if the user clicks on the "amount" slider in the right-click menu) The resource was enabled/disabled (e.g. if the user clicks on the little checkbox to the right of the slider) How do I do that? I would have expected to get a GameEvents.onEditorPartEvent for the affected part, with a ConstructionEventType of "PartTweaked", for both cases. However, here's what I observe: I never get any GameEvents.onEditorPartEvent notifications with PartTweaked, at all, for anything, ever. If I change the resource slider amount, I do get a GameEvents.onEditorShipModified (so I know the ship was touched... but I have no idea which part was modified) If I check/uncheck the "enabled" checkbox... as far as I can tell, I get no notifications at all. Specifically, I do not get a GameEvents.onEditorShipModified, the way I get one with the resource slider changing. Does anyone have any suggestions? How do I track this?
