EVA Antenna Mod

Recommended Posts

Is there a mod that gives Kerbals on EVA an antenna to transmit science back to their vessel? If not, I think it would be great to make something like this with a very short antenna range.

Thoughts? Ideas?

yeah

@PART[kerbalEVA*]
{
vesselType = Probe
    MODULE
        {
        name = ModuleCommand
        minimumCrew = 0
        RESOURCE
        {
            name = ElectricCharge
            rate = 0.08
        }
        }
    MODULE
    {
        name = ModuleDataTransmitter
        antennaType = DIRECT
        packetInterval = 1.0
        packetSize = 4
        packetResourceCost = 1.125
        requiredResource = ElectricCharge
        antennaPower = 2500
        optimumRange = 2500
        packetFloor = 0.1
        packetCeiling = 5
    }

    RESOURCE
    {
        name = ElectricCharge
        amount = 1500
        maxAmount = 1500
    }
}

{    
@MODULE[ModuleScienceExperiment]
 {
  @xmitDataScalar = 1.0
 }
}

oops forgot this is a MM config file create a folder i use zzzMyModParts ,to make sure everything in there is processed last., i call mine kerbalEVAxmitter.cfg 

eva

right clik on kerbal

change vessel type to rover or something then accept

you should see the symbology change in the upper corner from a guy to the commnet connection

only has a range of 2500 m so you need a relay antenna on your rover or ship

also makes it where you get full credit for the science. 

ill admit not a very elegant solution but the only one i could think of at the time hopefully somebody will come along and do a more elegant one.

I'm using the above config, it seems to work.  One question @COL.R.Neville, why 1500EC?  Seems like a lot, but I suspect there was a reason

This mod could perhaps play well with the above config. It should allow you to store science the Kerbal transmits in an applicable container on the target vessel, as opposed to just using it as a relay back to Kerbin. This may be desired if you have a mobile lab on that vessel, or no proper connection back home.

i couldnt remember if it recharged when you got back in and if you are doing surface experiments etc and unable to recharge you need a lil ec. you can make it anything you want.

so long story short SWAG

technically the guy is a ship so you could add a singularity reactor and warp drive if you wanted to hehe

Thanks man, I'm definitely going to try this patch tonight.
 

And for excrementss and giggles I will put a warp drive on a Kerbal and see them eva across the system :D

I do remember this backpack had an working antenna

Sadly it is covered with a lot of dust.
