[1.8.1 - 1.9.x] Buffalo: NASA Inspired Modular Space Exploration Vehicle

Recommended Posts

The recompile doesn't seem to have fixed the issue, at least not for me. I don't know if there's any debugging options we could try, I'm willing to assist in that regard if you want. In the meantime I've installed the last pre-actuators version of Buffalo, 1.2.3.

Update: Ok, no, so that's not working either... I'm guessing it must be one of the other mods interfering to cause this problem... this is going to be one hell of a pain in the ass to troubleshoot...

im having some trouble with the jet wing no matter what u do it always spins uncontrollably,i even tried lining up the COM with the COT and it flips out, i think the issue is atmospheric is there anything i can do. Does FAR help?

My guess is that it needs to be rebalanced after the aerodynamic changes. I assume you aren't using hover mode?

Yeah there's not much I can do at this point. Linux is a whole different beast. I know it works on Windows and the dlls are in sync.

So, I have discovered a coupke things with both Buffalo and Heisenberg:

1- both are way cool.  Thanks!

2- I can mostly fly the V-22, I can even sometimes land it. Yay

3- I can't seem to aim/land on the airships (PEBCAK) boo!  Good thing I've been practicing in a sandbox save !

Try renaming the folder to 000KerbalActuators. Really grasping at straws here..

Yeah totally know it's doable. I  just need more practice.  And more Kerbals.. .  Sigh.... always more Kerbals... they just keep dying when I crash!  My last attempt I at least HIT the flight deck, so improvement!

Two things that help me are the CompressedAir rcs thrusters and the VTOL Manager. I have landed aircraft without either, just takes practice. :)

Renaming with the three zeros seems to have stopped the error message, or during this load it did :)

Ok, do me a favor and run it that way for a few days and report back. If no problems then I'll chane that for the next release.

My issue with the Compressed air RCS is again a PEBCAK*, that being I keep misjudging their potency - which is the same problem I always have when trying out new RCS thrusters on orbit; I'll get it eventually...  VTOL Manager is the only reason I even hit the flight deck in the first place... And then I turned it off and forgot to kill my throttle first, which sent poor Doodford Kerman up, up and away, and then back down again, into the flight deck's control tower. :)

So now the next test flight will be with Shurman Kerman and a rebuilt Macon IV (I have done some serious damage to the first 3 Macon's - think original Star Trek series and movies).

On the plus side, I have managed several, well 2, successful landings with the V-22 on the ground, so go me!

 

*PEBCAK for those whom don't know:

For the record, it appears the problem is the result of RasterPropMonitor. Edit: it's ASET causing the issue, and it's a known bug.

Not sure if this is log-worthy, but I'm back to having trouble with the JetWing.  The VTOL manager is just giving me the button to activate engines, and if I stage to the engines being active, they flameout from lack of air intake (using LF on Kerbin) after a few seconds.

@Angel-125

I have been goofing around with Buffalo and Heisenberg for a few days now in both my almost vanilla install and my modded install.  In the almost vanilla (HL Airships, Buffalo, Heisenberg, KSO, Airpark, Firespitter, CRP, Mechjeb, KER) everything appears to be functioning within expected parameters.

In my modded (heavily) install, both the Buffalo RCS Compressed Air and the bigger Heiseberg Compressed Air RCS continually drain to zero with only one press of an RCS control; which makes fine maneuvering next to impossible.

With my vanilla install I can park on the roofs of  KSC and even make some landings on the Macon Airship! The RCS appears to function correctly.  So, my question is, do you know of any obvious mod conflicts?

@Angel-125

Here are some more details:

When using the V-22 sample craft or using a build similar to your rescue Buffalo you posted in the KAS Beta thread ( very cool :) ) I had the gas turbines running, and of course the rotors running. This is true in both my installs.

In my vanilla install mentioned above, both worked perfectly - compressed air was being generated at a constant rate based upon gas turbine throttle, usually about 50 - 60% when using the ascend/descend functions in the VTOL manager or 20-30% when using the 0 - middle button - setting (not running KSP atm)

In my modded install, with with turbines running at same throttle settings, the compressed air starts fully charged and then when using RCS controls the charge completely depletes, and begins recharging at a much slower rate.  Each subsequent RCS input depletes the air "charge" again. Shutting off RCS the air recharges again, but still slower than in my mostly Vanilla install.

 

Here is the log from my modded install:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/xcr8pprnfh37p9x/output_log.txt?dl=0

If you need any more info, let me know.

My suggestion is to take half your mods out of your game data folder, and see if the problem occurrs. If not, put them back and take the other half out. Keep repeating that until you can isolate the mod(s) that are causing you problems. I don't see the issues that you're describing.

Already started.  I looked through the log and can't really see anything that says "HEY!! This is the problem!!" I just eliminated KIS and KAS. (yay!)

I was able to replicate it in both my career and sandbox saves, so doing the binary search looks like the path to take.

@Angel-125, I have been slammed at work this pas week, and working in the wind outdoors while holding a jackhammer above my head is not what I'd call a great way to keep my energy levels up for evening KSP bug hunting. :(

Buuuuttt..... I have nothing booked this weekend, and the munchkin is off at the lake, so all of a sudden, I have some free time! :)   I was doing some brain-working though and was thinking that'd I'd start with a slightly more targeted search.  I really only need to eliminate a few mods from my main install, as my test install has already eliminated about 1/3 of the mods I usually use.  Thinking it may be related to a resource issue... not sure why but I have a hunch, and well, I need to start somewhere.  Obviously CRP can be eliminated, your mods all use seem to work with it/almost require it for optimal exploration experience.

I'll see what I come up with.

Thanks, I noticed that too and will fix it in the next release.

Also, heads up, I think I accidentally enabled the AirPark in the latest update. It is NOT ready for prime time and is still in testing. Use it at your own risk.

So far I haven't found anything explody.  Are you thinking of adding that into the Heisenberg mod?

Update regarding the Compressed Air RCS:

Issue is with Interstellar Fuel Switch for some reason.  I just deleted it grabbed a V-22 from the SPH, activated SAS and RCS, opened the VTOL manage.  Activate the Gas Turbines, throttle up, use RCS and WOOOOO!!!! no recharge issues!

Now what? lol

 

EDIT:

I'm getting beer!
