  1. A while ago, I was watching a DCS tutorial (mind you I don't have it, but I like it). Then it came to me "why not turn KSP into a DCS type simulator" After all, KSP has the BDA addon, tutorials, scenarios/missions, and, best of all, you can build your own custom airplane. So here is my proposal : A pack that you place in a clean KSP install with select addons (RBDA, FAR, APP, etc.), tutorials, manuals, scenarios, and built-in crafts made by me, and anyone else who would want to help, for those who dont want to bother with building their own airplanes. The manuals would be either in KSPedia or .pdf format. Another thing to do would be to add the BDA displays to IVA cockpit screens. I would also modify parts into new parts (e.g, AIM-9 without warhead for tutorials). Now, it is ready for the first beta release. If you have any suggestions/questions, ask here.

  2. Bonjour, je me lance dans la création de mod avec pour but un pack d'armes française pour BD Armory. Pour le moment toute aide est la bienvenue. Je commence par le MDBA Meteor Hi, i'm going to mod creation with the goal to make a french weapons pack for BD Armory. For the moment all help are welcome. I start with MBDA Meteor.
  3. The is the Open Beta for the next release of BDArmory Continued. This next release (version 1.1) will be a complete refactor of the damage model, ballistics and explosive force calculations. Our goal was to model realistic values for ballistics, bullet penetration explosive damage and force. All formulas used to calculate these values are based on real world values and physics formulas with balancing to account for game play. Beta Release #1 : Fixes Too many to list - see this tag in get for issues being corrected and comprehensive lists : Pending Release New Features Main issue tracking changes : Damage is no longer tied to heat or temperature of the part, a completely new "Hitpoint" health system has been created. By default all parts will have their Maximum Hitpoints calculated based on part area and density Documentation : For Modders: you can override these values by using the following in your part config or MM patches MODULE { name = HitpointTracker ArmorThickness = 120 maxHitPoints = 100000 ExplodeMode = Never } Example baseline values for balancing : 10,0000 hitpoints for Tank Hulls, 100,000 hitpoints for larger boat hulls. Armor The Armor and penetration system has been completely redone, no longer needing custom layers or parts. All parts will have a default value of 10 "Armor" units to approximate default thickness of metal composed of the part. Armor can be changed in the VAB or by the same method above with a MM patch. Any part can have Armor if you choose, allowing for more flexibility. There will still be dedicated Armor panel parts for those who choose a different build path. Armor will stop bullets and limit damage depending on the amount present and bullet mass and velocity Bullets Documentation Bullet configurations now have real world values for caliber and mass. Ballistic coefficients are calculated in code based on these values for a more accurate drag model Most damage values for weapons have all been moved to the bullet configurations. This will now make weapons more consistent with same ammunition. BULLET { name = 30x173HEBullet caliber = 30 bulletVelocity = 1180 bulletMass = 0.3880 //HE Bullet Values explosive = True tntMass = 0.3104 blastPower = 2 //deprecated, use tntMass, left in for legacy support blastHeat = 3.7 //deprecated, use tntMass, left in for legacy support blastRadius = 2.5 //deprecated, use tntMass, left in for legacy support apBulletMod = 3 //not yet implemented bulletDragTypeName = AnalyticEstimate } Weapon Configurations All damage values are now calculated from the bullet configuration. All other value are deprecated. ammoName and bulletType are required MODULE { name = ModuleWeapon .... ammoName = 30x173Ammo bulletType = 30x173Bullet .... Decal Bullet Hits Bullet strikes currently have two sizes for (90mm below / above) This is a very early feature and has much work left to be done (i.e. mapping bullet decals to curved surfaces properly) Explosive Damage @jrodriguez to provide more details on the changes of the explosive detonation code New value of tntMass is replacing all other values for explosive in bullet configuration. For Missiles the following will need to be added, where tntMass should be the approximate real world value of explosive mass the missile contains. MODULE { name = BDExplosivePart tntMass = 27.15 } Compatible Mods SpannerMonkey has graciously allowed me distribute his pre-release updates that are compatible with the Open Beta. Please do not comment on any other thread but here about issues with these parts. Feedback should be provided here in relation to BDA testing only.

  9. Looking for weapons mods!

    It's been a very long time since I have played KSP, and I had a bit off a macey dean phase. Coming back, that sorta has not left, though I'm dropping the pretenses and wish to use actual mods! But what would you recommend? I know about BD armory, but are there any others that are 1.3 compatible?
  10. Hello There! The mod uses BDarmory And Firespitter Plugins. This is the temporary or not thread for my mod, because the forum derped. I know that there is aviators arsenal who has the same weapons as me, yes thats true but his weapons are just little pods sticking out of the wing , i wanted to have the full weapons so you don't put guns into tiny wings and see that guns are larger(or smaller when you think. I was not trying to make the models to accurate becouse a) this is the first time me modeling absolutely anything. b) it's KSP.

  11. Hello community! This is a dev thread for my upcoming BD Armory mod 'Random Ordinance Emporium.' This is my first mod that taps into the complexity that is 3d modeling and texturing. I am VERY new to this, so tips, tricks, and suggestions are VERY welcome! Below are some of the ideas I have for the first update coming later this February/March. Current Weapon Ideas. (NU = Next update) GR-12 Swarm Rocket: A tiny, short-range radar-guided missile that gets all its punching power from 'lethal impact velocities.' Meant to be launched 2-3 at a time. (NU) TTG-99 'Crackle' 50cal mounted gun: A compact 50cal surface mounted machine gun. Not very powerful, but great if you want to stay small. (NU) BAMO-05 'Jabberwocky' 30mm: A large, automatic 30mm cannon. Great for making sure things stay dead. Not a rotary cannon. DRO-02 'Thunderdrake' Missile: A large, medium-range radar-guided missile. It has a large warhead, but it travels relatively slow. Great for shooting down bombers.

To complete this challenge you must meet the following requirements: 1) Picture, GIF, or Video of your weapon. 2) Picture, GIF, or Video of the aftermath of your deployed weapon. 3) You MUST call your target (ex: VAB building, or a specific craft, or "ENTIRE RUNWAY") 4) You MUST prove your weapon works (accuracy be damned!) Impress me!
  15. Hey forum people! Information. 1. I use a Mac. 2. I use KSP ver:1.2. 3. I use BD Armory ver:1.2 So i am trying to use a targeting pod (I've tried both) but whenever I activate it, the screen where the view shows up is just a solid purple. I know I am doing it right because in the past KSP and BD Armory versions, it showed up with no hint of purple what so ever. I can't see anything in the targeting pod window, just solid purple. this is a screenshot of the targeting pod Sorry I had to use such a crappy template. Only look at the first part because all the rest is template. Please get back to me as soon as possible!
  16. Addon for BD Armory currently containing several weapons made by various divisions of Denel in South Africa. Download: Pack currently contains fourteen parts (five turrets, one missile launcher one bomb and seven missiles,) more are planned and in the process of being made but this is what I've done so far. Missiles Denel A-Darter. Denel Al-Tariq. Denel Mokopa. Denel R-Darter. Denel ZT3-Ingwe - Fires from ZT3-Ingwe launcher (it no longer fits in the TOW launcher :c) Denel Umkhonto-IR. Denel Umkhonto-R. Turrets / Launchers Denel 35mm Dual Purpose Gun. Denel G6 Howitzer. Denel LMT-105. Denel LMT-105 Canister. Denel GI-2 Helicopter Autocannon. Denel ZT3-Ingwe Fixed Launcher. Bombs Denel CB-470 Cluster Bomb Current version: 0.2 Upcoming stuff Note that this is a work in progress, if something doesn't work (with the models, I can't fix the BD Armory modules if they are broken) tell me and I'll look into it. If you have any suggestions let me know.
  17. A sci-fi addon for BD Armory, it adds a bunch of weapons inspired by Star Wars. Updated to 1.2.2 by using BDArmory Continued. Also features a "Power" system as ammunition, which is quite simplistic. The whole thing is really, but it's nice to have anyway! Basically, use the battery pack called Power System for all your needs. There are currently three unique models, contributed by SpannerMonkey and Wraith977! Download over at Spacedock. You will need BDArmory Continued installed. Feel free to contact me with both bugs and requests/suggestions/ideas. I will probably add more weapons with time, but currently there are: Ion Cannon: Based on the howitzer, it is a very powerful weapon on a direct hit, but otherwise does minimal damage. X-1 Light Laser: A small automatic laser gun. M50 Dragon Turret: Tank Turret that focuses on explosive radius but is not as strong as normal tank cannons. It fires slightly faster too. Scout Laser Cannon: Automatic relatively light laser cannon. Laser Turret: Pictured above, it's inspired by TIE Fighter guns. A light and small weapon. Turbolaser: Heavy turbolaser, for all your capital point-defence needs. It now acts as a proper flak gun with explosive shots. X-8: Automatic laser cannon. Deadly. X-10: Inline lighter laser cannon, for fighter use. Based on the X-Wing, featuring model by SpannerMonkey. Old Republic Defence Turret: Very fast firing experimental turret, provided by Wraith977. Dorsal Turbolaser Turret: Heavier turret, great for general use on bases and various starships. Also made by Wraith977. License: CC ShareAlike 2.0 With all credit due to BahamutoD, and his awesome mod(s). As well as the team working on BDArmory continued now of course. And SpannerMonkey and Wraith977 for providing some really cool weaponry!
  18. Aviator Arsenal A WW2 aircraft weapons and utilities collection. Aviator Arsenal is a pack of weapons created by me and @VintageXP. It is based on BahamutoD's Armory modules and contains the most famous World War 2 aircraft weaponry. It's completely independent from the original BDArmory mod, providing you with ammunition, command modules, mounts and everything you need to make use of all the weaponry available in it. Every weapon on this pack was researched to be represented accurately, while still maintaining our own style and making them look appealing into the game. The focus of the pack is being used on actual dogfighting, mainly the BAD-T tournament. Because of that a very complex balancing system was created. This means that every weapon is rigorously balanced to be used out of the box, you do not need to worry about tweaking anything in order to have a fair gameplay. Every weapon fulfills a role, and you can choose your preferential stats through different variations of the same weapon. Every parameter, from rate of fire to tracer color is represented as accurately as possible. A lot of research was put on making sure the weapons are as similar to their real life counterparts as possible. Have fun, and good fighting!
