[PART][WIP 1.0.5-1.1.x][Dev Release] Chinese Pack Continued v0.2.0.18Y, Crewed Pod WIP! (06-20-2016)

Recommended Posts

There is now a release as a developmental preview, which is guaranteed buggy. As Kerwis is no more interested on working on the Chinese Pack, we KerbFilm Studios will continue to maintain it. Well duh, I know by our name, we're "supposed" to make videos and stuff blah blah blah, just ignore that part and move on.

 ===== Congratulations to the Chinese on successful maiden flight of CZ-7 on June 25!! =====

This thread will be updated (or not) as soon as possible when new progresses are made.

This pack is currently intended for RSLV (Real-Scale Launch Vehicles), and THERE ARE NO PLANS FOR STOCK SUPPORTS in the upcoming version (and very likely a couple more after) yet. After we finish up with the RSLV configs, we can then consider making a Kerbin-compatible version of these.

If you have a feature request, feel free to post it under this thread, we will weight each option and choose some to add to the planned features list.

There's already a CZ-9 mod (The Martian Rockets), you can find it [HERE]. It only supports stock instead of RSS and RO. Its author, MajorLeagueRocketScience, kindly allowed us to write RSLV configs for it, and we'll start working on that once CZ-1, -2F, -3B, -5 and Shenzhou are stable.

For now, balances for Career Mode are by far not finished. It will be still useable (somewhat) in Career Mode, but do so at your own risk. Unless it's a good bug, supports will not be provided before a version with official career support has been released.

Here are some pics.

 DOWNLOADS 

>>>>>THIS IS A PRE-RELEASE, AND EXPECT IT TO BE BUGGY<<<<<

dzaq2CK.png 

Secondary: GitHub

Tertiary: Dropbox

No source codes of this mod are available as this is essentially a part-only mod by itself. Links to source codes of the plugins we've used can be found on their dev/release thread, see "Dependencies" section for more info and links.

Legacy downloads can be found at SpaceDock changelog page and GitHub releases page.

 

 DEPENDENCIES 

  • Module Manager* (NOT INCLUDED)
  • Community Resource Pack (Included)
  • XT Landertron (Plugin included)
  • Procedural Fairings (Will be one in the future, but not done by now)

* If you don't want RF and RP patches, then you don't have to have it.

 

 NOT DEPENDENT BUT HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 

 

 EXTRAS 

There are none as far as of this thread. Sorry. RP FX is on its way of being integrated.

 

 COMPATIBILITY 

It is designed to work in v1.0.5 so far. As it is a mostly part-only mod, it should more or less work with 1.1.x.

It is likely to work just fine in v1.0.0, v1.0.1, v1.0.2, v1.0.3 and v1.0.4, but if you are using such installations, just don't expect too much support.

This pack is on the Comprehensive Kerbal Archive Network, or CKAN. It's done via KerbalStuff (which means I'm not quite sure what exactly happened to it).

It also works in the Community Windows x64 Workaround. You will receive support on x64 builds as long as we can manage it. 

SUPPORTED MODS: (Not a complete list)

Spoiler

 

No conflict with other mods are known.

 

 INSTALLATION 

1. Hit a download button somewhere

2. Unzip and extract content

3. Throw the stuff into \KSP Root Folder\GameData\ folder the same way you do to other mods

4. Make sure all dependencies are there (they're included), maybe a couple ones in the recommended section

5. ...?

6. PROFIT!!!!!

You are encouraged to manually delete the past versions of it before installation, despite that your OS will ask to replace them anyway. Especially during the developmental and pre-release phase, any left-overs can cause really bad stuff to happen. I don't even want to imagine those.:rolleyes:

 

 RECOMMENDED HARDWARE SETUP 

Minimal:

Intel Core i7 5600U (2C4T, BF 2.60GHz, Turbo Boost 3.2GHz – 3.1GHz)

Intel HD Graphics 5500 (24EU at 300MHz – 950MHz, 1GB Shared)

6GB DDR3L-1333

5400RPM SATA3 HDD

 

Recommended:

Intel Core i7 3632QM (4C8T, BF 2.20GHz, Turbo Boost 3.2GHz – 3.0GHz)

NVIDIA GT 750M (384EU at 967MHz, ≥1GB GDDR5 Dedicated)

8GB DDR3-1600

SATA Express/PCIe NVMe SSD

 

 KNOWN ISSUES 

- Shenzhou's parachute only has the upper half visible, but does function normally (somewhat)

- Shenzhou command pod will slide sideway during parachuted descent like [THIS], it will be better under RealChute

- CZ-3 RP FX is buggy and needs some more work, thus it is disabled by default

- Shenzhou orbital module's crew hatch is un-clickable (no menu popping up), see MMG's devnote for more. This bug is now currently beyond our ability to repair, due to that it's something wrong with Unity or KSP itself. UPDATE: it works fine in 1.0.5, but still buggy in 1.0.4. Not sure why.

 

 

 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 

  • Q: Will this pack cause my computer to blow up?

A: Not this pack itself, but RSS and RO. See the recommended hardware section for more. Dual core CPUs with strong single core performance should be enough, as Unity 4 isn't multithreaded and Unity 5 will do fine under 4 threads with HyperThreading. Although disliked by many modders, the Community Windows x64 Workaround is highly recommended if you have more than 8GB of RAM. Remember to use the Windows x64 Unfixer with this.

 

A: Yes. We. Do. As long as it's within our abilities, we will provide as much support as we do to the x86-32 stock builds.

 

  • Q: (some sort of bugs, instabilities and whatnot) happened! What the %$#@& is wrong with this!

A: Please refer back to the known issue section. This mod is still in heavy development phase, and as I've said above, use at your own risk. Nearly all pre-released stuff are buggy, and do expect that when using it. We're working hard to debug, though there are some beyond our ability or it takes longer to fix. Please, do backup your install before using this mod.

 

  • Q: Will you add (this and that)

A: Probably not. But feel free to comment if you find something you want and it's not in the WIP Features list. We may add it to that if it's good.

[Devnote of ShenZhou & TianGong]

Well, still WIP. :wink: (Maybe long time before pick it up again)


Spacecraft ShenZhou

now available for test, all the basic system are working.

Known issue

-The SZ-TG docking port doesn't work well. (Maybe caused by cesh colider)

-The texture of the chute only can be seen from up side

-The pod slides after the chute deployed. (RealChute will help with this)

-The parachute cannot be chosen while setting up an action group

-The orbital module's hatch cannot be chosen during the flight, causing failure of stock crew transfer.

(No more a problem, in 1.0.5 you can simply use right-click menu to tranfer the crew)

Already fixed

-RCS thrusters are now available on the orbital module

-Resources on board, part weight and engine thrust/Isp have been balanced

 

See the details of ShenZhou on wikipedia

 


Target vechile TianGong by 54znzn(liukuniii)

now developing apartly http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/threads/139807-WIP-1-0-5-Chinese-TianGong-Science-Space-Station-V0-2-1-November-26th-2015/page3

See the details of TianGong on wikipedia

Hopefully we can have CZ7 released before the real CZ7 roaring toward space.

Modeling is 75% done by now and LZY will start texturing.

I'll never understand you real scale guys. It's a pity you will not release it stock-scale. Good work btw!

We're not "never" gonna release stock scaled rockets in this pack, but this is not our first priority. Once we have the RSLV configs settled, we can then move on to Kerbin-compatible ones.

You might try the Long March 3B mod here second page from the last, I posted a update to it http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/threads/67662-Chinese-LongMarch-3B-mod-v1-0

EDIT- And on this mods so called real scale what is it scaled to ? to make it real ? as much has, I want KSP to be real, I haven't found or seen anything that makes it look real.

That does not support KSP v0.1.x, and I believe that's one of the things we're continuing from.:)

For real scale, it's 1:1 size as to the real thing.

I did use ProceduralFairings in all my test and made the texture for it but didn't think to try and patch the old fairings at the time.

Actually we are making a continue version of this and some more... If you look carefully, you can find that the models are the same...

Well, we are adding more things to this mod, like Realfuels(coming soon) and Realplumes support, and Stock configs(coming soon).

Is it okay for us to redistribute your PF version of the fairing base?

Then why isn't simonArtisan credited for his or her work ?

EDIT- And yes you can use the PF version of the fairing, I have also let someone else use them.

The credit of the old CZ-3 goes to the Kerwis team, and they have already given all files and credit to us.

They have announced it in our local forum(HERE, and 智库 or zhiku or think bank(things translated like this) means the Kerwis team.

Hey guys. I'm very interested in this mod your making. Hows about I let you guys make the RSS version of my CZ-9 and I keep the stock solar system version in my mod? I hink it sounds like a pretty good idea. P.S. I'm working on a Chinese Launch site for another mod, I might hand that over to you guys as well.

Sure, that's very nice of you. Though it will probably not be our first priority at this time, since bugs are flying around our mod everywhere.:rolleyes: After we fix those, we can work on its RSLV config alone with modeling CZ-6.

Um, I think there're already a couple people who has created the Wenchang space center in RSS, though it's not made public (as far as I know).

A Chinese luanch site? Does that means a brand new space center powered by Kerbal Konstructs? If it is, will you make it looks the same as in Jiuquan the satellite launch center or the one in Xichang(Taiyuan, Wenchang maybe)?
