Hi I'll be using a set of your wheels in the DAKAR Kerbin edition challenge, after many tests they have come out as the most suitable for my needs,  and as it's a bit quiet I've sorted a MM cfg for adding wheels sounds (using the mod Rover Wheel Sounds)   And thanks for the wheels, do you have a flag/banner/emblem? i'd like to add one for the sponsor stickers :)

@PART[RollKage?Kerchelin?Extreme]
{
	MODULE
	{
		name = WheelSounds
		wheelSoundVolume = 2
		wheelSoundPitch = 0.7
		wheelSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/type1
		skidSoundVolume = 0.3
		skidSoundPitch = 1
		skidSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/gravelSkid
		damageSoundVolume = 1
		damageSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/wheelDamage
		soundInVacuum = false
	}
}

@PART[RollKage?Kerchelin?Jumbo]
{
	MODULE
	{
		name = WheelSounds
		wheelSoundVolume = 3
		wheelSoundPitch = 0.5
		wheelSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/type1
		skidSoundVolume = 0
		skidSoundPitch = 1
		skidSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/gravelSkid
		damageSoundVolume = 1
		damageSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/wheelDamage
		soundInVacuum = false
	}
}

@PART[RollKage?Kerchelin?Sport]
{
	MODULE
	{
		name = WheelSounds
		wheelSoundVolume = 3.5
		wheelSoundPitch = 0.5
		wheelSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/type2
		skidSoundVolume = 0
		skidSoundPitch = 1
		skidSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/gravelSkid
		damageSoundVolume = 1
		damageSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/wheelDamage
		soundInVacuum = false
	}
}

@PART[Small?Rover?Wheel]
{
	MODULE
	{
		name = WheelSounds
		wheelSoundVolume = 3
		wheelSoundPitch = 1
		wheelSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/type2
		skidSoundVolume = 0

	}
}

@zitronen

This is a great work, a good completion for stock wheels.

I am currently working on a Munar rover replica, and I found that the small rover wheel base is really large, and that can be a handicap for some type of constructions.

I suggest you reduce the base size.

Thanks for the cool mod.

I don't know much about tweakscale, I presume I just need to paste some stuff into the cfg files? Are you willing to submit a pull request with the updates if I put it on github?

Cool! I don't have a logo or anything, but if you decide to make one I might steal it from you.!

Yeah the base plate is pretty crude, I made that one before I started working with @electronicfox, I think it clearly shows who actually had talent in modelling & texturing! I don't think I can make one much better myself.

yes, for "compatibility" with tweakscale, we need add this code to cfg

or create separate cfg file, something like "mod_compatibility_patches.cfg"

and yes, github is perfect way for comunity help with mods maintaining

Great mod and handy.

I do have a request, more of a challenge. That is to have "deployable wheels". That would take an animation. The wheels in flight sit in a box like the solar panels. On deploy the box hatch opens then the wheels extend on struts. This would help reduce air drag on various versions. I was thinking of a deploy at 45 degrees. This halfway mode give you both a needed down and a useful width.

 

Alternatively you could tap into the existing aircraft landing gear and give them a motor. These open vertically.

Hiya,

Not sure if anyone still uses this mod or anything, but I wrote up a ModuleManager thing to make the wheels work with TweakScale (might wanna make a new .cfg for it):

@PART[Small?Rover?Wheel]
{
    %MODULE[TweakScale]
    {
        type = free
    }
}
@PART[RollKage?Kerchelin?Sport]
{
    %MODULE[TweakScale]
    {
        type = free
    }
}
@PART[RollKage?Kerchelin?Jumbo]
{
    %MODULE[TweakScale]
    {
        type = free
    }
}
@PART[RollKage?Kerchelin?Extreme]
{
    %MODULE[TweakScale]
    {
        type = free
    }
}

I also made one for WheelSounds (just copy and paste into the WheelSounds .cfg):

@PART[RollKage?Kerchelin?Extreme]
{
	MODULE
	{
		name = WheelSounds
		wheelSoundVolume = 2
		wheelSoundPitch = 0.7
		wheelSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/KerbalMotionTR-2L
		skidSoundVolume = 0.3
		skidSoundPitch = 1
		skidSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/gravelSkid
		damageSoundVolume = 1
		damageSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/wheelDamage
		soundInVacuum = false
	}
}

@PART[RollKage?Kerchelin?Jumbo]
{
	MODULE
	{
		name = WheelSounds
		wheelSoundVolume = 3
		wheelSoundPitch = 0.5
		wheelSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/RoveMaxXL3
		skidSoundVolume = 0
		skidSoundPitch = 1
		skidSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/gravelSkid
		damageSoundVolume = 1
		damageSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/wheelDamage
		soundInVacuum = false
	}
}

@PART[RollKage?Kerchelin?Sport]
{
	MODULE
	{
		name = WheelSounds
		wheelSoundVolume = 3.5
		wheelSoundPitch = 0.5
		wheelSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/RoveMaxS1
		skidSoundVolume = 0
		skidSoundPitch = 1
		skidSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/gravelSkid
		damageSoundVolume = 1
		damageSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/wheelDamage
		soundInVacuum = false
	}
}

@PART[Small?Rover?Wheel]
{
	MODULE
	{
		name = WheelSounds
		wheelSoundVolume = 3
		wheelSoundPitch = 1
		wheelSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/RoveMaxS2
		skidSoundVolume = 0
		skidSoundPitch = 1
		skidSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/gravelSkid
		damageSoundVolume = 1
		damageSoundFile = WheelSounds/Sounds/wheelDamage
		soundInVacuum = false
	}
}

@zitronen It'd be cool if you could integrate these modules into a future update. Love your work by the way.

for module dependancy is "NEEDS[modname]" directive in modulemanager syntax - this tell to modulemanager if patch is usable or not (if wheel sounds need any mod, we need add this directive in patch)

for example, my patch for tweakscale contain this -   :NEEDS[SCALE]    = execute this patch only if SCALE is installed.

some more info - Module Manager Handbook & Module Manager Syntax

After Noticing This Mod On CKAN, And Visiting This Page To See What It Was, Im Going To Attempt To Drag The Original RollKage Back From The Dead. I Need A Project Anyways.

 

Im By No Means A Modder, So We Will See How This Goes, Im Not Gonna Attempt To Work On The Textures Just Want To Update Configs

@zitronen

All Seems To Be Going Well. Texture And Model Appear Stable, Configs Are "Operational" Aka, Very Messed Up But Usable

Tested on 1.4.1, the Jumbo, Extreme and the Sport all snap 90 degrees on launch.

I really enjoy these wheels.

@zitronen

Yes, same for me. I hope we could resolve this, because this is one of my favorite mods :)

I haven't got much time to test these. Has any other mods got similar problems? Maybe something needs to be changed in the cfg files?

XMTnqhv.png

First image is in build mode, they look alright.

mbV25aZ.png

as soon as you load it in (stage mode?) they all flip/snap 90 degrees.

None of the other mods that i have with wheels have this problem. But no other wheels comes close to how good these are.

Also, is it possible to make this mod to work with ckan?

@TheKurgan @Casper_83 Sorry for the delay, can you please test the patch for the Kerchelin Extreme wheel here:

https://sites.google.com/site/zitronfiles/RollKage%20Kerchelin%20Extreme.zip

If it's working I'll do the same thing for the other wheels.

Absolutely! I will get back to you in 10 min ish

 

YES! It works :) Great work @zitronen

Is it possible to get it working with CKAN also?
