[1.3] Planetary Domes

Recommended Posts

Hi! Actualization 1.6 deleted all domes, but floorpanels is still functioning. Is there a possibility to fix this beautiful mod?

KSP 1.6 

 

I've added this mod but don't see the parts anywhere?

 

Is there somewhere specific I need to look to find the parts in the VAB/SPH...?

 

Thanks!

It is useless to write, the author refused to KSP.Already only if you play with it on older versions or ask someone to restore the mod

has anyone tried just pulling out VS and recompling it against 1.7.x ?  the error I'm seeing in the logs seems to be texture-format related, though, so that may not work...

this doesn't rely on a plugin so, there's nothing to recompile

hm, maybe gimp/photoshop to convert the textures to a compatible format is the answer, then...  nobody maintains this anymore? at all?

The problem with this mod is due to either the Unity change at KSP 1.4 or the introduction of the reflective part shaders at KSP 1.5 or 1.6. I assume the particular shader was broken or removed-- the shader that's used by all the parts with transparent bits. Fixing it will require someone who's willing and able to put all of these parts back through Unity and change their shader settings.

Textures are not the problem.

So I [just] noticed.  What tools would be needed to do as you describe?  I can perhaps do it, but I'm not sure how to manipulate the .mu model files :(

@ss8913 What I believe you will need are:

  • Blender
  • the .mu import/export plugin for it (made by @taniwha ).
    Clone and unzip the repo into
    Blender\<version>\scripts\addons\io_object_mu\ Then you'll have to find the UI option to enable it. Somewhere. :D It may be more forgiving in the Blender 2.8 facelift.
  • the Unity IDE v2017.1.3 and PartTools
    Unity is where you can easily set the shader within a material (the object that holds a combination of textures and the settings for how it behaves under light exposure).

Fortunately (for me) I largely don't need to learn the ins and outs of Blender. I only use it for importing .mu. But part modders who know what they're doing (and who are using taniwha's plugin) can skip Unity and PartTools entirely.

You should be able to alter the shader with a cfg patch and my advanced textures mod.

With that mod you can replace the shader on existing models without any need to edit them.

I don't have time in the moment to look into that, but it should be easy.

also, looks like domes & stuff are coming "soon" to USI, so that might just.. supercede this.

a shame its dead T.T It seemed like a very good mod

As a modder, @Thrimm wasn't happy with EULA changes.  So at that point he gave up work on this mod.  Which was a shame, not least because there was to be a reworking of the domes and the airlocks that would mean that you could drive or from the outside to the inside.

The models are very good.  I, for one, was quite disappointed, but respected his decision.

Peace.

@theJesuit Why not give the mod to another person to take care of keeping it working?

Because they were his.  The issue was with the potential of Squad, actually Take Two, uplifting the design models et al and the IP that Thrimm had spent his time on the packaging it for sale without having to pay any royalties.

This is a bit off topic though.  The parts as they are do work I think in 1.7.x.  They are what they are.

Peace.

I am quite surprised by the amount of people missing this mod and the traffic this thread experiences recently. I'll do my best to update this mod to work with the latest KSP version AND include recent, work-in-progress changes I wanted to include a long time ago. Stay tuned friends.

@Thrimm Should we, perhaps, also keep an eye out for new videos on your YT channel? IIRC, the last one you posted was the Eeloo colony ship.

Hello,

after quite some time I present you with a beta version of PD working with the current version of (KSP 1.7.x).

So far there is only one dome (new type and functionality) new airlock (new animations and functionality) and an updated tunnel.

In this pre-release dome(s) are equipped with lights and active nodes (bits appear or disappear as a function of stuff attached to nodes - designed to work with airlocks). Airlocks now have animated doors and your Kerbals can walk through them, so it no longer works as a part with crew capacity.

Enjoy:

Cheers,

Thrimm

Edit: A snippet of how it should work now :)
