[1.2.2] Contract Pack: Historical Progression (v1.5 - 4/24/2017)

Contract Pack: Historical Progression

This contract pack is designed to take you through the history of the human space program. This entire contract pack was inspired by Whitecat106's Historic Missions contracts. He has created an incredible selection of close to 700 missions! For me, that is too much, and I wanted to go through the history of human spaceflight and progress how we have done in real life. I did not want to have to launch a mission that was almost the smae thing over and over again.

This contract pack takes you from the first sounding rockets to New Horizons and into the future. You will be tasked with recreating some of the most ambitious missions like the Apollo Program, Voyager and the International Space Station. It is up to you to guide the Kerbals into the cosmos through a historical progression.

Some of these contracts are very involved and require you to use gravity assists to accomplish the contract parameters. Others give you the option to complete certain goals in order to gain bonuses. For example, in your Space Shuttle contracts, you get bonus funds if you land your shuttle on the Runway back at KSC. One of the best examples of this is the MESSENGER contract. It requires you to enter a polar orbit of the first planet in the solar system. We will use the stock system  with the Real Solar System planets as an example.

MESSENGER Contract Parameters

General Goal: Design an unmanned craft to Orbit Moho (Mercury) with a minimum Inclination of 70 degrees

  1. Design an unmanned craft with an antenna (also with 3 SCANsat scanners if you have the mod installed)
  2. Launch MESSENGER
  3. Enter Orbit of the Sun
  4. OPTIONAL BONUS: Flyby Kerbin (Earth) for a gravity assist
  5. OPTIONAL BONUS: Flyby Eve (Venus) for a gravity assist
  6. OPTIONAL BONUS: Flyby Eve (Venus) again for a gravity assist
  7. OPTIONAL BONUS: Flyby Moho (Mercury) for a gravity assist
  8. OPTIONAL BONUS: Flyby Moho (Mercury) again for a gravity assist
  9. OPTIONAL BONUS: Flyby Moho (Mercury) for the third time for a gravity assist
  10. Enter Orbit of Moho (Mercury) with a minimum Inclination of 70 degrees
  11. Transmit Science Data from Space around Moho (Mercury)
  12. If you have SCANsat installed, have 80% mapping of Low Quality, Biome and High Quality

Most of the missions are not that difficult or that involved, but MESSENGER was launched in 2004 after more than 50 years of spaceflight and we knew some new tricks to help us achieve an orbit.

REQUIRED MODS

HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED MODS
These are not nessecary to use the contract pack, but it makes the pack much better

OTHER MODS TO CONSIDER
There are many part mods to consider that will give you the ability to construct realistic looking, or in some cases replicas of the spacecraft that are simulated in this contract pack.

  • Bluedog Design Bureau (NASA / ESA)
  • FASA (NASA)
  • @raidernick Awesome Collection of Mods
    • Skylab
    • US & Soviet Solar Panels Pack
    • Salyut Stations
    • Soviet Spacecraft
    • Soviet Probes
    • US Probes Pack
    • US Rockets Pack
    • Antares & Cygnus  
  • Tantares

NOTES

  • The contract pack removes the World Firsts and Explore Body stock missions as we are already covering this with the pack
  • This contract pack works with all planet packs, but you will experience some weird contracts if your Home planet is not the 3rd rock from the sun
  • Full support for Stock, Stock x2, Stock x6.4, Outer Planets Mod
  • Full support for Real Solar System, Half Size Real Solar System, Stock Size Real Solar System
  • I do not know how this will play with other Contract Packs unless listed below, as it is designed to go through all major "firsts" of our space history so will duplicate similar contracts from other packs
  • Most missions cannot be cancelled nor will they expire. There are a set of optional missions and more will be coming down the line. These optional missions can be cancelled and do not need to be completed.

COMPATIBLE CONTRACT PACKS

  • Anomoly Surveyor
  • AntennaRange Relays
  • Clever Sats
  • Field Research
  • Giving Aircraft a Purpose (GAP)
  • Kerbal Academy
  • Maritime Mission Pack

So, is this contract pack compatible with Realism Overhaul + Realistic Progression Zero?

It is definitely compatible with Realism Overhaul, but it will have many of the same style contracts as Realistic Progression Zero. If you wanted to use the contracts from this pack, I would install it with RP-0 and then use the built in Contract Configurator function to disallow the RP-0 Contracts.

For example, RP-0 Contract Order:

  1. First Launch
  2. Unmanned past Karman Line
  3. Unmanned Orbit
  4. Moon Flyby

Historical Progression Contract Order:

  1. Sounding Rockets (First Launch)
  2. V-2 (Unmanned past Karman Line)
  3. Sputnik 1 (Unmanned Orbit)
  4. Luna 1 (Flyby Moon)

Hey @pap1723,

just wanted to let you know that I solved the science balancing issue in SETIcontracts by just removing all science rewards (with very few exceptions).

So that the contracts only pay for the restrictions which are unique to career mode (funds, reputation) and science is done like in science mode, by doing experiments.

The only exceptions I made were some of the missions which eg went to the same biomes as previous missions (prolonges orbit, eg for life support). And the most important historical milestones (escape atmo, orbit and so on a token 1 science each).

That pretty much leaves science balancing between experiments/tech node costs and contract balancing can concentrate on funds and reputation.

I had to post because this mod just made my day.  I love doing the historical missions and the previous "full" contract pack was great (particularly the many details in the descriptions).  This is also a welcome evolution of that because it did get a bit tedious to do so many missions that either were very repetitive or where you had to create failure.  Along those lines, I have reached the early unkerballed capsule tests. Both Korabl-Sputnik and Mercury-Redstone appeared.  

I built one of the rockets (using the many historical parts from the other recommended mods) and went to remove Jeb from the capsule so I could do the test.  What do I see!  I see Zvezdochka and Ham waiting to board as tourists!  I love that!  Finally, I can send some of the real first astronauts on their missions!  

That was an excellent touch to add and a great surprise for me.  Kudos!

and Thank you

Hey @pap1723

I'm playing KSP 1.1.3 with your mod. But Gemini 7 & Gemini 6A Contract I rendezvous at cca. 20 meters is done, but game don't recognize it. I tried it with MechJeb Randezvous autopilot and it is still unrecognized. I don't have any other contract packs instaled and all stock contracts are off.

Sorry, bad english speaker and writer.

Your English is just fine!

There is an issue with that Mission that I hope to have fixed for the next release. I am not releasing another version until the new Contract Configurator comes out. For the time being, I would ALT-F12 to open the debug menu and force complete the contract to move on.

Sorry for the issue with that one, it has proven a tricky one to fix.

Hi @frango9000, thanks for the kind words about the pack. If I had to guess, Historic Missions covers every mission that I have in here. The only real difference is that some of the missions I have created are more involved with more steps than some of the Historic Missions.

Eventually, there will be some new missions, but that will be later game stuff.

I got a question - I have been using the mod since 1.1 and so far, taking the trip down the historical lane has been fun and educational.  Thank you for that.

I just updated to the latest version , I do understand that some contracts were changed and updated, but perhaps I am updating the mod incorrectly as I am getting repeats and in fact, the Apollo' were out of order.

thank you for the mod.

Hey @gamerscircle, I watch you quite a bit on Twitch and you were actually using the other modpack by @Whitecat106 previously called Historic Missions. I am assuming that is the issue you were having.

This is the first contract mod I've tried, I was satisfied with the stock contracts until I saw this one and I love it.  I am having problems with the Gemini 6A and Gemini 7 rendezvous though.  I've noticed someone else had problems with it too,and saw the ALT+F12 fix, so thanks.  I was pulling my hair out thinking I did something wrong.  Being, cough, older, cough, I remember some of these missions and being able to play them in Kerbal Space Program is just awesome.

Hi @Starslinger999,

Sorry for the late response to your message. I will definitely be adding some of the Moon Base missions, but I will be adding them as futuristic missions. It is my opinion that technologically, we were not ready to create long-term habitats on the Moon prior to the developments that took place on Mir and the ISS.

Thanks for putting this together. Is there a way I can increase the chance of these being made available though? I'm quite often finding there's only a single historical mission available at a time. Am playing with a bunch of other contract mods so maybe they're crowding it out.

Hey @baldamundo, the way the contract pack works is that during the early part of the game, there is only usually one historical progression contract available at a time. This is because they all build off of each other. Once you get into the timeframe of the late 1960's into the 70s and 80s there are a lot more concurrent missions that will be available at the same time.

Hey @baldamundo, the way the contract pack works is that during the early part of the game, there is only usually one historical progression contract available at a time. This is because they all build off of each other. Once you get into the timeframe of the late 1960's into the 70s and 80s there are a lot more concurrent missions that will be available at the same time.

Ohhh. That makes sense. For people who use KCT it does make the early game a lot slower though
