  By MrChumley - based on original .cfg file by NovaSilisko uses model and texture by porkjet
  REQUIRES ModuleManager! http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/50533

 

D/L Link: https://github.com/MrChumley/XenonScoop/releases

Installation: Place the XenonScoop folder inside your KSP/Gamedata folder.

Please note:  This is essentially just a ModuleManager .cfg. It reuses meshes and textures from the existing radial intake. Includes a new resource (Atmo) to let it use non-oxygenated atmospheres too.  Based on original .cfg file by NovaSilisko, uses built-in model and textures by porkjet.

 

Enjoy. :)

Hmmm, this is very interesting. Maybe you should make it like a fuel scoop from Elite Dangerous. Go close to sun and it will give you some fuel.

The fuel gathering would make more sense if we had to fly to the poles to harvest MORE, and the closer to the sun the better.

Why not make it use IntakeAtmosphere from the Community Resource Pack? That would help alot for it.

What other mods use IntakeAtmosphere?  Using a "new resource" prevents unintended conflicts.  If you meant "IntakeAir", that is already used by default, and requires that the atmosphere contains Oxygen.

I spent awhile balancing everything, and making sure that this didn't feel like "cheating".  It actually requires that you get down into some of the thicker atmosphere, and it also requires a decent amount of power, so you will have to use some brain power to make use of it.

 

Mr Betelgeuse, and Asmosdues - I suspect that you are thinking of something along the lines of a Bussard collector.  In which case it would be a part that uses tons of power, and possibly work kinda like a solar panel in so far as being close to the sun (and angled into it) would SLOWLY create LiquidFuel (AKA Hydrogen) from the interplanetary/interstellar medium.  I'd be happy to help with the .cfg (and testing) of such a part, but I'm afraid that I'm not advanced enough in the 3-D modeling aspect to do it by myself (yet).

 

Please give it a try, and let me know if there are any problems. I appreciate the feedback. :)

The IntakeAtmosphere is a resource added by the Community Resource Pack, many mods use it to standardize resources. I have the link for the mod here: http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/83007-105-community-resource-pack-0470-20151114/
You don't have to use it but it prevents conflicts in the long run.

Took a bit of study, but I think that If I would have used IntakeAtm it would interfere with the workings of the Thermal Turbojet from KSPI.  There is no IntakeAtmosphere in CRP.  I'll see what I can do about integrating with the CRP though. Thanks for bring this to my attention.

I'm actually surprised nobody has brought up the 80 m/s crash tolerance yet :D  That will be "nerfed" soon.  So much work for a lowly .cfg file...  Anyways I am interested in any reports from people actually USING this mod.

It is on github, and the license is CC0, and if you fork your own version I am more than willing to collaborate.  I'm doing my best not to step on any toes, and learning as I go.  Thats part of what makes this community so awesome. :D

I mean nothing bad, I made a mod yesterday as well. Although I would be very happy to help with this, though.
