Contextual Contracts... has anyone seen them?

Recommended Posts

I've got many assets in space now, nearly done with my tech tree, and yet I have not seen one of these mythical contextual contracts. Has anyone seen them yet? What do they look like, what specifically am I looking for? Anyone have a screenshot? As I recall, even the streamers in pre-release couldn't find them.

I've seen two, in a sea of regular contracts. But I only got those by cancelling regular ones over and over.

I got one so far, to change orbit of a Mun sat.

It should be pointed out that the probability of getting one of those increases with the number of vessels up there ( NathanKell said so , atleast ), so I would not be surprised if they would be rare if you have only one or two ships active ...

According to Alshain, he has a lot if crafts active. So he should have encountered ONE. Moreover they shouldn't need a spam cancellations to get them.

Contracts.cfg:

Base // Outpost Construction Contracts

...........

ContextualChance = 75 // The maximum chance for an outpost expansion request

ContextualAssets = 2 // The amount of outposts required on the planet to reach that chance

.............

Satellite // Satellite Deployment Contract

.............

ContextualChance = 50 // The maximum chance for a satellite adjustment or network request

ContextualAssets = 2 // The amount of satellites required on non-home planets to reach that chance

ContextualHomeAssets = 4 // The amount of satellites required on the home planet to reach that chance

.............

Station // Station Construction Contracts

ContextualChance = 75 // The maximum chance for a station expansion request

ContextualAssets = 2 // The amount of stations required around the planet to reach that chance

.............

Survey // Survey Contracts

ContextualChance = 50 // The maximum chance for a contextual survey trail request

ContextualAssets = 2 // The amount of ground assets required on the planet to reach that chance

You mean, "Where are they?".

When are they (come on, think fourth dimensional!)

Contracts.cfg:

So should that mean that once you have 4 there is a 50% change to get one? If thats the case, then for me it is NOT working as intended.

Saw my first last night. Wanted me to move a craft in orbit to a different orbit altitude and inclination. Didn't take it since the craft it selected was the Duna rover I had parked at 100x100 waiting for a launch window.;)

There is another conditions:

MaximumAvailable = 3 // The maximum amount of inactive satellite contracts in Mission Control

May be rejecting other satellite contracts should help to create contextual satellite contract.

And I think the value is not measured in percentages.

Yeah, I have a lot of craft. I'm playing with RemoteTech so I have more than usual and I've taken a lot of satellite contracts on top of that (of course if it tells me to move a ComSat it can kiss my butt :P)

Do you have the new update? I know there was some kind of issue with the contextual contract and vessel identification. Might be unrelated, tho.

I'm running the latest version. Playing through Steam so I have to be.

I'm not all that far into career mode, and I've already seen two: one asked me to go take a temperature reading at a site I had previously been to because the last mission "detected some temperature anomalies" and the second asked me to adjust the orbit of a satellite I had sent up for the Mun flyby mission.

I was going to say that XD but I figured it was too off topic (actually my quote would've been "WHEN the hell are they?").

I got an interesting one to extend a space station I had in orbit. 18 kerbals, a cupola module, and a requirement of 2 tourists on board. Didn't exactly take too long for me to find it though.

I already have seen a couple, one for repositioning a satellite, another for sending a rover on a survey mission.

Those chances are body dependent, and remember that the body is still chosen depending on a variety of factors including your progression. So you might have four satellites on Kerbin, but have visited six other planets. This means you have a 50% chance of seeing a contextual on Kerbin, but all other planets you have visited will still ask for new assets until they have some on them. It's hard to modify a vessel that is not there. :P

I've had reposition satellite contracts and a couple of contracts asking for temperature surveys on Minmus near two of my landed probes. The temperature surveys change as you go, asking you to look in one spot and then adding a new site to check once you've done the first one.

Finally got one. If anyone still hasn't, this is what it looks like. Nice highlighting of the satellite, hard to miss. (and pretty good cash for a simple inclination change.)
