@pizzaoverhead: I think it still needs tuning, but I've sent you a PR that seems to fix the mod for KSP 1.4.2.

Thanks for this taniwha. My free time has gone negative, so I'm not sure when I'll get a chance to look at this.

Got an interesting effect from the leftover trails in 1.4.3.  Jettisoned a stage out in front of me and was inside it's trail, it then exploded about 100 meters ahead of me, so the leftover trail was stuck right in front of me.  I ended up coming back up to about 65km, so my trail faded, but the trail from the other stage was still there, and almost backwards now from the distance I traveled.  The secondary trail stayed with me all the way to the ground (Even parachuting at 3 m/s) where it remained as a pillar of fire that my kerbal could walk around inside.

That's amazing! Not "good" amazing, but amazing nonetheless.

@pizzaoverhead Thank you! This mod is great. I loved it in 1.3.1, but now in 1.4.3 the trail is way too big. Will this be fixed? Or is there any way to just turn off the trail at least?

 

It'll need some work and a new release, though I'm not sure when I'll have the time for either.

Any ETA on when both this and Collision FX might be updated? They're both pretty sweet. 

Or does anyone know a fix to make them both properly compatible with 1.4?

Not Soon

Doesn't work for me on 1.4.5. I think I installed it the way it should be though
GameData/ReentryParticleEffect/Properties

There's no Properties folder, so it's likely installed in the wrong place. Check the path in the readme file for the right location.

All is working as it was before.

1.4.5 with Win64 system and KSP win 64

and pizzaoverhead, thanks AGAIN for bringing this back to us.

 

crashing through atmosphere or even just normal re-entry can never be same without this.

Cheers.

1. download mod

2. open zip file

3. open the GameData dir in the zip file

4 copy the ReenttryParticleEffect directory into your GameDataDir

5 restart ksp

6. profit

That is about as straight forward as it can be.

This still could have some tweaking. I love it for reentry, but not sure if an airplane should leave a giant trail of fire at Mach 4-ish. :)

Thread took a harsh turn, so we've edited a couple of posts. No need to be cranky with each other.

Works fine in 1.5.1

@taniwha @pizzaoverhead The mod does load and create the reentry tail effect, but there is a bug where the tail too big. The has been discussed a few times in this thread already (starting on page 6) but here's a comparison just to keep the details current:

KSP v1.3.1 with RPE v1.2

KSP v1.4 through v1.6 with RPE v1.3
