Is this compatible with CRP? 

 

 

I'm using TAC Life Support which has the CRP as a dependency and having issues getting this to work properly on the stock tanks. But it works fine on the tanks it adds.

Of course it is, but what exactly is the problem?

Sorry, I ended up switching to a different fuel swapper. But; the issue I was having is that it was adding TWO fuel tanks for every tank. (I could store double the amount of fuel and the GUI options were available twice). Not sure I can reproduce now that I've swapped some mods around.

Hey i noticed big delta wing and big wind strike are not supported , is it intentional? if not can you make it swichable too i dont see the reson you cant store water or hydrogen in it ( as a boiloff heatshield maybe too? )

@gary85 isn't that a pure liquid fuel tank?

yep , thes 2 are the only tanks you cant swich fuel , kinda waste of space if you dont use liquid fuel.

Thanks for this mod. It frees me from using the unsightly yellow monoprop tanks and I can have LF only in pretty much any tank size now.

@FreeThinker looking around at KSP-I to see what the mod is comprised of, I found out you can star lift hydrogen from Kerbol, if you go below 600 Km... waw who thought of that?

Yeah, sounds familiar. There was a very boring game once that one could do something like that so one could travel even further for no clearly defined reasons... It had Friendship Drives and lots and lots of interdictions. What was the name....

@FreeThinker Is there a reason tweakscale is bundled? Is it a dependency?

It more like an high level of integration than a hard dependency. So you could technically play without tweak-scale , but it is mend you play with

That sounds very useful.  Any plans for LqdHydrogen and Hydrogen, because certain fusion reactions require Hydrogen?

Yes, that one of the reasons I build it. I was planning to put it on the reactors

after manually deleting GameData/InterstellarFuelSwitch/Plugins/MiniAVC.xml the update went ok!

 

Thank you FreeThinker!!! :)

please let me know what you think of the never resource conversion tool which allows automatic conversion between liquid and gas

I would like to hear some feedback.

I'm thinking about putting the Interstellar Resource Converter into a separate mod,  I intended to add more resource conversion and harvesting features in it.

I could for instance move all KSPI ISRU Harvesting features to it, allowing everyone to use more realistic atmospheric/oceanic/surface resource collecting.collecting without the KSPI-E bagage

It would free up KSPI-E of ISRU, which contain too much feature for most people to comprehend anyway

That makes a lot of sense.  ISRU has kind of been hanging off the end of KSPI-E which was always more focused on propulsion.

Maybe consider splitting it into 3 mods, 1 for fuel storage, 1 for propulsion/reactors and one for ISRU?

Yes, that was my general Idea as well, I intend to move all KSPI-E storage to IFS, I already started doing that

FYI this and Configurable Containers by Allista don't play nice.  Problem for me is that I use MKS, and it now apparently depends on Configurable Containers as part of Roverdude's switch over to Ground Construction.  Any chance you guys could figure out what is stepping on whom?  I'd really like to not be forced to decide between MKS (My career game depends on it) and KSPIE (my favorite sandbox toyset)

A am willing to disable IFS Global script when a ConfigurableContainers is present, but when does the conflict occur?

Two comments on that:

First off, as part of the integration process with MKS, Allista putting out pared down bundles of CC and GC - which should be enough to avoid the problem in the future.

Secondly: I run an install with both.  The only actual problem that I see is if both are applied to the same tank and you try switching resources on that tank.  (You can get the tank into weird states - where it doesn't have resources, or has two sets, etc.)  I believe current GC actively avoids putting itself onto tanks with IFS already installed, and I haven't seen the actual issue come up in a while - but if you were to conditional your global MM script to only apply to tanks without the GC module then it won't matter which set of patches gets applied first.  (Well - it will matter, because only one set will get applied, but the only issue will be which tank-switcher people get on the stock tanks.)

We probably should also suggest to both of you to make sure your 'apply to stock tanks' MM script is visible, clearly labeled, and distinct, so it' easy to remove.  (I haven't checked - just saying it's going to be needed.)  Then users can use both as by dependencies - and it's fairly easy to choose which to apply to stock parts.

Version 2.4.3 for Kerbal Space Program 1.2.2

Released on 2017-02-23

  • Added Global script which applies tank switching between popular glasses to all xenon tanks
  • Added Global script which applies tank switching between popular liquid fuels to all liquid fuel tanks
  • Fixed: Global script will not Fuel Switch if ModuleTankManager is already present
  • Fixed If tank mass is undefined it will fall back on part prefab mass
