Hi! I have a question. Does any of you guys know how I can get the smoke you see when you launch a rocket. I've made my own LaunchPad and I was wondering what module I need and what the config needs. Many thanks :)

AFAIK that has nothing to do with the static other than proper collision meshes so the smoke is deflected through the trenches. The ground smoke effect is a module attached to engine part configs

Hey there, gents. I was wondering if it is at all possible to start with the KSC closed and a different KK runway / facility opened. I'd like to make a career where I start in the desert with X-planes and sounding rockets, then later move to the KSC, as in real life. Possible?

Alternatively, is it possible to have more than just the KSC open when starting a new career with KK?

What type of collider do I need on top of the “drains”, So both the smoke can go through while nothing can really fall through it like the KSC launchpad?

Update; I've tried various approaches to this, but I get roughly the same results;

that's as far as my knowledge goes, and I still maintain that I could be wrong

Alright, thanks for your time, I'll play around more to see if maybe a module could fix this.

You could try KSC Switcher. I think there is a link to it from the RSS thread.

Some further issues:
 

Every time I restart KSP statics are floating above the ground:

They don't seem to save the altitude position. Just opening the editor snaps the model to the ground (but lower than I set it previously):

The colliders seem to be turned off every time as well.

Also, planes occasionally fall through statics, though that could well be the glitchy KSP engine since occasionally I can find craft falling through the ground as well.

Finally, when I add a launchsite there seems to be no way to open it. It appears in the menu as a launchsite, but is unusable. I have to quit KSP and change the setting in the "OpenCloseState" in the config to Open manually. Then it can be used properly.

Hey @Citizen247

could you solve your problem with the floating statics? I have the same problem, after restart of the game they float, open the editor snap them back to the ground. And i can also not choose the static as a Launchside in the VAB.

(Yes, i used "make Launchside"/ "enable colliders" and every save button in the different menus)
Seems like youre using a scaled Kerbin system as well?!

Thanks

It's because of sigma dimensions. You need to place statics in unscaled to get the correct height.

Yeah for some reason they won't let me art them to open in game. I have to edit the static config file after placement.

Yes I play on a custom 10x rescale.

can anyone confirm if the latest KK on v1.3.1 is copy/pasting locations correctly or that the target snap is working okay? I copy a static position and paste it to another static and the heading and altitude nearly match up but it doesn't affect the Lat/Lng position. Also I toggle an object in the main window for a Snap target and select another object but when I click the Snap to Target button nothing happens. Am I missing something??

Hey, first time downloading this mod (seen the old version but didnt install it) and im confused on how to see the other bases, there is no button that i can see or contructions, did i install it wrong or it needs somekind of activation?

Im using other mods with it, i dont know if its another one causing the "vanishing" of the constructions. and i think it should work on sandbox right?

Love to see this mod back and working good.  I am getting this on occasion in the VAB, but it seems harmless.

EDIT: This does not happen with a minimum install, so its caused by the presence of one my my other mods.

Hey man i seen someone else have this issue but it looks like he just got ignored, so I CANNOT launch from KSC. Everytime I click on the launchpad or runway it directs me to "dull spot" every damn time, i literally cant even play because I cant take off from KSC so this is pretty annoying. I dont even have dull spot opened so i dont know why it keeps spawning me there. Please help!!!

speaking of floating objects...

 

I am not sure which KK mod this comes from.  probably not Kerbinside as I just saw them recently and that has been installed in most of my games.  maybe Kerbin City or KSC++ ...  I have installed several KK mods, so not sure.

 

However if anybody can tell me what mod added them I will report that to the author.  and I have no knowledge of editing bases.  so any help in removing/fixing these floating objects would be great.

IIRC, remove them from the 'KSCUpgrades' group and they should spawn in the "right" place.

Do you have the Launch from Anywhere cheat enabled?

Hi, I'm trying to go to the Mun and I'm trying to launch from the Great EZ Kapes launchpad to simulate a launch from Florida, but the latitude makes my orbital inclination so different than the Mun.

What is the best way to launch to the Mun (Apollo style) from a higher latitude without having to do a "match target inclination maneuver"?
