I've tested the wheels and oof, they are broken indeed. That's gonna be a bummer. I tested the new lines with that test and that's the result. I'm not quite sure yet how to investigate the models in the future. But this is the last version of KSP right? More or less? Might be worth fixing at the very least if there's no more future versions to break it again

Everything going forward is bugfixes, no new functionality. They're going to have to work REALLY hard to break anything now.

Also, I should say thanks so much for APP! This has been the #1 app for me to install for the last 6 versions of KSP, and even in a "mostly stock" game, this and Universal Storage II are my "have to have" mods. For building aircraft in KSP, I consider APP to be not optional. :cool:

Regarding the fuel consumption of KT6C, people don't seem to use it that much, so I don't have feedback. I'm not great at testing how lengthy the engines function on practical use because of time constraints. If people here have complaints about it, I'll put the part on focus.

I'm replying to this old post as a reminder and maybe with some new info. This is all with KSP 1.11.2.

The engine consumes a lot of fuel, and has very limited horizontal flight distance as a result. The VAB/SPH says it has 10000 ISP which I would expect to give much longer flight times. There's an extreme amount of drag from the engine so maybe that's the issue. If you are making enhancements to the mod please consider looking at this issue.

The engine itself works fine other than the fuel use. Power and top speed seem reasonable. I've tested with your "Sparrow VTOL", which carries little fuel, and my own craft with more fuel and went maybe 10% of the distance I would expect to travel before empty.

Building in SPH takes some trail and error to figure out how this engine works but I see no bugs there.  I placed it with mirror symmetry, both engines facing forwards for horizontal flight, then deployed to make sure both sides rotated upwards, then did a test launch. If the deployed-upwards engines cause a severe roll as power is applied, reverse thrust on one of the engines.

Looks like the ShortBoom and ShortBoom2 need their texture pointer changed from "Squad/Parts/Aero/cones/Cones" "Squad/Parts/Aero/cones/Assets/Cones" for 1.12, else it uses the placeholder texture

pairing that with the fix from Angel-125 on the previous page makes it load with no errors in the log for me aside from the usual no drag cube ones.

I just notice that some of the parts are missing, like the rest of the engines both prop and jets. But the cockpits and the Helicopter engines are still there and working just fine.

But I read through the post and I understand. Hope you'll get some time and update this mod.

in 1.12 When I installed the mod "[1.11.x] Textures Unlimited Recolour Depot", then the Airplane Plus Properller engine faild to show rotating disc during flight, it still have thrust power ouput, but the properller blades are just rotating fast and never switch to the disc animation.

I checked other mods with properller engine, and I found that SXT and KAX are showing the rotating disc animation well, the only mod went wrong is Airplane Plus and Firespitter, so I guess it's because the module:

MODULE
{
    name = FSplanePropellerSpinner

Because I found the only difference between Airplan Plus and other properller mod is inside this module, and when I copy the module lines from Aiplane Plus  Helicopter Rotorwing file, into the piston part's file, the disc finally show up but in a very strange way.

So if there will be something fixed about the compatibility in future compatibility for 1.12, it would be great

There's nothing "special" about KAX, I just use the latest Firespitter. ;) 

Ignore the Firespitter folder on the distribution file (ignore the ModuleManager too, never install more than one in GameData, and never use an older version!), download and install the https://github.com/snjo/Firespitter/releaseslatest FireSpitter and it should work fine - it did on my rig (on KSP 1.12.2) at least.

(this is one of the reasons I don't think distributing dependencies on the same file is a good thing)

Hi dude, I think your problem is something else: see my previous post:

I'm using Airplane+ normally on KSP 1.12 - but I didn't installed the old Firespitter that came embedded on it. Try to remove the GameData/Firespitter on your game and install the latest Firespitter. It worked for me.

Alternativelly… Did you tried to use CKAN? It handles this mess for you!
