You need to unzip the files and place everything into the GameData directory. So your GameDat folder should have CommunityResourcePack along with WildBlueIndustries. Under WildBlueIndustries you should have 000WildBlueTools and Buffalo.

Thanks for the feedback, I'll take a look once I get to the point where I can play with the JetWing again. You are correct though, the wing is intended to be assembled out in the field.

Ok!

One more question - any particular reason for using Atmosphere instead of IntakeAtm from Community Resource Pack?

(Probably a technical reason I'm missing. Asking because Filter Extensions generates a separate category for the JetWing under Engines, due to the input resource combination not matching anything known by the config that comes with Filter Extensions (v2.4.1.3).)

First line of the first post has the link you need.  ;)

(Second line is out of date, as KerbalStuff is no more.)

Yes, I couldn't get IntakeAtm to work on Duna or Eve.

hey wild blue have u ever considered making the mountain goat wheels turn 360?

Yup, sure have, but the current wheel code doesn't let me. I hope to revisit them in 1.1 :)

Hello I've run into an odd problem when I've got Buffalo installed I don't have the ability to open/close the Mk2 and Mk3 cargo bays. The button is gone, and the option in the Action Groups is not there. Is there anything in the Buffalo/Wild Blue Tools that might interfere? Only happens with the Mk2 and Mk3 cargo bays, the Mk4 and the cargo bays from OPT all work just fine. Or has anyone had the same problem and beaten it to death?

 

Update! Got the cargo bays to work by just installing the 'Buffalo' file, no other files that came with it and it works now. Very odd but at least now I can sleep, well after just one more flight...:P

I love this mod. I'm about to attempt my first manned Eve arrival and departure. I'm debating using a Buffalo for the craft as my drilling rig. For some reason, it's so easy creating a rover with this it feels almost like I'm cheating when I don't have to spend hours trying to figure out how to make the wheels protrude out correctly and align like I do when starting with a circular tank. :) 

I do have one small request. Any way you could make the probe core work with IR sequencer?

Angel, Dude,

in CKAN the entry for the Buffalo still points to KerbakStuff...

I'm sure that can be done, I'd just need to be pointed in the right direction for the sequencer so I can see examples of how that's done.

I don't have a Buffalo entry for SpaceDock yet, and given all the problems I've had with CKAN installs, I'm not keen on having CKAN support, honestly... Way too many installs are borked due to people using CKAN. If there was a way to automatically force a download of absolutely everything, I'd be more included to use it, but right now CKAN gives me support headaches.

The Buffalo's ladders need a refresh. Having them vertical as they are now is more realistic but practically speaking you run into the issues you're seeing.

The outdated files in the manual release will also be giving you support headaches. Patching your release is in progress. If anyone is getting a bad install via CKAN now send them over to the support thread.

It is available here: https://github.com/MagicSmokeIndustries/IR-Sequencer/releases/tag/0.6

I have zero modding experience. I plan on getting into that after I finish my Ph.D. here soon. I got to thinking the problem may be in that mod and not this one.

Guys, I've run into a problem, when assembling Buffalo in the field.

I start with attaching Wheeljack part to the ground, then goes chassis parts, wheels, cabine, all seems fine. But I cant remove Wheeljack part in the end of assembling. Game says that I can't detach root part, but I don't know how to change the root part in the field. I've tried this mod few months ago, and didn't experienced such problem, also I have experience with RatPack Rover by Roverdude, and also never had problems with it. Any suggests will help, thank u.

That sounds like a KIS issue. I'll have a look and see what's going on.

I remember reading someone else was having this exact issue just recently.  Check back a couple pages here, here.  I cant get that video to play on my phone.

Given how KIS is working, I'd say drop the Wheeljack down, put a small decoupler on top, then put the chassis on top of that. When you get done building, fire the small decoupler and then remove the Wheeljack and spent decoupler.

I found if you un-attach the part that the wheel jack is attached to, the wheel jack falls off. All you are doing is taking the root part off rover. The rover stays in tact.
