I believe he made them gendered to avoid docking two passive APAS

but you could make a personal MM patch to remove gender from these ports without the need to change the original file every time it is updated

That would not be correct. The gender of the active port should be switchable in-flight to passive. the passive always stays passive. This is the priciple idea behind the apas system.

This needs to be more obvious, as I've run several missions with the APAS ports and was unaware the active side could be switched to passive mode.

He was talking about the real-life ports these are inspired by.

stock KSP doesn't support that, that's the whole point of this discussion

then the adapters should not be gendered. even configured that way, they do not fit.

then you'd have two passive APAS docking together and people would come and complain that this isn't realistic

I already posted a quick MM patch that disables gendering and makes this discussion useless, so it's up to people if they want it or not

I love your mod!  Has there been a realism overhaul config created by anyone for the parts? I'd love to use them for an RO station

Is this mod incompatible with KSP 1.2.2? CKAN won't let me install it...

Yup, works great in 1.2.2. That's one of the reasons I don't use CKAN :)

Thanks for the warning

EDIT: Luckily for me, I backed up KSP before updating, but I can't update now :( 

EDIT 2: I think MM did something. When I put the old version back in, and the old safeload, it still didnt load properly.

EDIT 3: Yup, put the old ModuleManager.ConfigCache/ConfigSHA/Physics and .TechTree back in and it works now.

That doesn't look at all right. Are you sure your download was complete, or installed correctly? The way it looks, it's as if Cx isn't installed. I didn't see 'deleted entire mod' under the v1.5 changelog :P

Nope, MM did something. I don't know what, but when I put old version back in and old MM ConfigCache it worked (still on old version)

I installed like it said on the OP, remove old folder, then place new one in.

I suggest you make sure your MM is on the most current release version, and then install Cx Aerospace v1.5 (make sure to delete the previous Cx Aerospace folder, just to be safe) and then see if it works. If it doesn't and you run into the same problem, post logs. Make sure to maintain your working backup while you do this

Alright, my steps: doing things as im writing.

Checked if MM was latest version. I have 2.7.5, the last one that was released is 2.7.5.
Removed CxAerospace folder
Downloaded V1.5 on spacedock
Placed new CxAerospace folder in GameData

Launched KSP x64
And somehow it works now, hmm.
Closing KSP, and launching it back up (to make sure)
Works.

Now I'm confused haha, I did exactly the same thing. Must have overlooked something.

Anyway, thanks @MrMeeb, saved my day!

@cxg2827 can you make the trusses attach in symmetry to Z1?

Why exactly would you need that? Just asking :)

I also saw that you're working on the rest of the truss complex, I can't wait to see it!

Been slowly working on top-down modeling for those to make sure proportions are correct and all parts fit correctly. I might have something to show for it all in-game untextured in a few weeks.

Looks like I got more shuttle missions to plan out in a few months! Can't wait to send those and rebuild the station in space :D

for future reference anytime this happens just task-kill the game (Alt+F4) and you'll still have your intact save file. It won't be overwritten until you change to another screen

I'm aware :) Also I back up every time things needs an update. But thanks!

Just wanted to say your changes to the docking ports make it so much more enjoyable to use!  I love them now!

 

Are there any plans for a "covered" truss texture like the ISS has, or a mounting truss like the S0 ITS?
