Welcome to the forum @MrMxffin,

As potential mod users we must remember that requesting an update (while not against the rules if it is polite and non repetitive) can seem like a demand to some developers and is known as 'poking the bears' on the KSP forum. I have no doubt that IFS will be updated to 1.8 but please remember that our great modding community works hard to bring free content to this game we all love while also having lives to live. As mod users patience is the best virtue when awaiting updates.

Most likely some other mod is halting your install.

Need your logs to verify.

Except for empty config files (which are harmless) I don't see any problem in your log

Hello,

Although the most recent version of IFS (3.12.1.5) said to be supporting 1.8, I am having some texture issues with it.

I don't see anyone reported this issue yet, so I wanted to.

The following parts seem to have lost their texture properties and appear as mostly red, in the tech tree, editor and in flight, instead of their original colour blue;

  • IFS Megajoule Super Capacitator SC-2500
  • IFS Megajoule Super Capacitator SC-1250
  • IFS Megajoule Super Capacitator SCR-1
  • IFS Megajoule Super Capacitator SCR-2

This is not a game breaker (not to my knowledge), but I miss their original textures, especially the SC-2500 looked so much better with all the indicators etc.

As of version 1.8 I am not using any texture mods. If you are interested, I can send my log files via DM.

 

Thanks in advance.

I'm a bit lost here.

May I ask when were those models adopted and recolored from Near Future mod?

Because if my brain is not playing games with me, they were fine until I upgraded to 1.8 from 1.7

 

I still have the original blue DDS files from 1.3 times and am wondering if it would break them (or anything) to replace those files?

Sorry, I don't mean to disrespect your colour of choice, but I would prefer to use those if I could...

Yes they were addopted from a release Near Future mod from a release with an open license. They were resouloured red to make them distinct from NF. The inline version has been in IFS for quite some time and only recently added the radial version. I agree the red might be too bright.

Not sure if this is a B9 issue, or a IFS issue, but there isn't any options on any IFS tanks in 1.8.1.

I only have IFS, B9PartSwitch, CommunityResourcePack, and ModuleManager installed, all latest versions.

I am having a similar problem as well with no stock parts having switch types. Though I have Mk2 / Mk3 expansion as well and have noticed that ONLY adapter sections which change from one node to two are switchable but none of the normal inline sections or single inline adapters are. 
 

Edit. Removing B9 part switch has no effect.

Yesterday I got a lot of bad stuff in my log as I was looking for something else - a lot of IFS stuff.
Yes, I did not dare to open an issue whatsoever - because I already removed TweakScale before that.
So I was not sure if those exceptions came because of the lack of TweakScale.

After I removed IFS (and still got B9PartSwitch and Firespitter) everything was sane again.

I did a check and found only two part packs that really would need IFS at all - and I already had commited patches for those that they also can use Firespitter.

Example:

	MODULE
	{
		name:NEEDS[Firespitter,!InterstellarFuelSwitch] = FStextureSwitch2
		name:NEEDS[InterstellarFuelSwitch] = InterstellarTextureSwitch2 

...

This means, Firespitter comes first and then - if installed - is replaced by IFS.

Just for those two part packs I don't need the whole IFS "suite" :cool:

@FreeThinker is TweakScale a hard dependency for IFS? Or is it okay to have IFS installed without TweakScale?

I need this information to exclude the possibility of a lack of TweakScale being the reason for IFS being "taxing" :D

No. I never use or install tweakscale. It works.. or rather, should work without it. 
 

the current update seems broken. I rolled back to the previous version and it has no problems at all.

@FletcherDragon okay, thanks for confirming my suspicion that IFS is broken.
As the previous version is for KSP 1.7.3 and I'm on KSP 1.8.1 I guess I should also not touch that one ...

I would  like to give IFS another go - and I want to remove FireSpitter completely and trick all configs and patches that need FireSpitter as dependendy with this patch:
GameData\zFinal\zzz_IFS_instead_of_FS.cfg

@PART[*]:HAS[@MODULE[FSfuelSwitch]]:NEEDS[InterstellarFuelSwitch]:FINAL
{
	@MODULE[FSfuelSwitch]
	{
		@name = InterstellarFuelSwitch
	}
}

@PART[*]:HAS[@MODULE[FSmeshSwitch]]:NEEDS[InterstellarFuelSwitch]:FINAL
{
	@MODULE[FSmeshSwitch]
	{
		@name = InterstellarMeshSwitch
	}
}

@PART[*]:HAS[@MODULE[FStextureSwitch]]:NEEDS[InterstellarFuelSwitch]:FINAL
{
	@MODULE[FStextureSwitch]
	{
		@name = InterstellarTextureSwitch
	}
}

@PART[*]:HAS[@MODULE[FStextureSwitch2]]:NEEDS[InterstellarFuelSwitch]:FINAL
{
	@MODULE[FStextureSwitch2]
	{
		@name = InterstellarTextureSwitch2
	}
}

@PART[*]:HAS[@MODULE[FSinfoPopup]]:NEEDS[InterstellarFuelSwitch]:FINAL
{
	@MODULE[FSinfoPopup]
	{
		@name = IFSinfoPopup
	}
}

Based on this simple table:

Interstellar Fuel Switch offers improved versions of FSFuelSwitch, FSMeshSwitch, FSTextureSwitch, FSTextureSwitch2 and FSinfoPopup made by Snjo.

Firespitter		InterstellarFuelSwitch
--------------------------------------------------
FSFuelSwitch		InterstellarFuelSwitch
FSMeshSwitch		InterstellarMeshSwitch
FSTextureSwitch		InterstellarTextureSwitch
FStextureSwitch2	InterstellarTextureSwitch2
FSinfoPopup		IFSinfoPopup

The most of my installed part packs already got patches that switch from FS to IFS - my zFinal patch just does it for anything else, too.

I'm fairly sure the previous version of IFS is for 1.8.  I only rolled back the mod version not the game version. I'm not smart enough to do any of that super technical stuff all I know is that when I throw them together and boot it up there aren't any noticeable problems running on v 1.8.1

Here, I fixed that for you. TweakScale is not affiliated with the butchery I promote on my unofficial efforts!! :D

Things is… Neither do I. Every single time TweakScale had to "cope" with IFS was due rogue patching, where third-parties were shoving unsupported configurations into a part and, so, we ended stomping each other toes because that configuration was just not supported (not to mention feasible - we just should not shove more then one Fuel Switch on a part, it's insane!).
