Will the old legacy parts overwrite the new parts in KAS or can they be added separately?

 

Thanks!

They can added separately.

I am using infernal robotics next and I can not seem to get control of the canadarm. When I use the infernal parts the tool bar icon show up but not with canadarm

This is because canadarm needs to be updated for IR next. IR next changed so much internally (it's practically a new project), that it needs new options and therefor an updated of all parts that are using it. Because of that it has been built to be installable side by side with the old IR.

Unfortunatelly it is not that easy with the parts of canadarm. For some reason those behave very strange (like 2 of the very old legacy parts of IR that were dropped long time ago) and I think those need an update in order to work with IR next.

It’s working now I download a older version of IR and it’s all good

I installed everything properly and reinstalled all dependinces, I am using the space shuttle discovery model and canadarm moves, but the magnet is not working since there is no button showing to enable it when I right click the end effector. I installed the KAS and KIS seperate from this download.

You need to install the old KAS legacy parts. Installationguide and link to the files are here.

IR-Next seems to have a magnet part.... let me check the part.cfg -

IR_MagneticGrabber

Spoiler

	// --- Magnet Module ---
	MODULE
	{
		name = ModuleIRAttachment
		partAttach = true
		partBreakForce = 999
		forceNeeded = 0.1
		electricChargeRequiredIdle = 2.0
		electricChargeRequiredConnected = 3.0

	//	attachToEva = False		// Disable/enable attraction of eva
	//	minFwdDot = 0.9961947	// Minimum magnet alignment needed to attach. Set to Cos(5 deg)

		activatingSoundFilePath = MagicSmokeIndustries/Sounds/magnetstart
		deactivatingSoundFilePath = MagicSmokeIndustries/Sounds/magnetstop
		activatedSoundFilePath = MagicSmokeIndustries/Sounds/magnet
		attachPartSoundFilePath = MagicSmokeIndustries/Sounds/magnetAttach
		detachSoundFilePath = MagicSmokeIndustries/Sounds/magnetDetach
	}

 

So if you have IR-Next installed - you could install that part or that module into your part.

Don't know if this will work - it should. the :NEEDS for IR-Next I don't know how to write, so I tried to say it needs that part that the code came from. Also included a fix for the original part - bulkheadProfile.
