Hello everyone!

Kerbal Space Program 1.2.2 is live

Here's the changelog for this patch:

=================================== v1.2.2 ============================================================
+++ Bug Fixes
* Fix crash to desktop when using Aero Overlay display and Part highlighting in Flight.
* Fix one final GUI flickering issue regarding the Parts List Scrollbar.
* Fix CommNet occlusion multiplier GUI setting.
* Fix to prevent kerbals with existing name being created.
* Fix MPL(Science lab) ladder sliding.
* Fix Grass textures around Research and Development Facility.
* Fix for corrupt save files breaking the resume menu.
* Fix where some science experiments only trigger once on action groups.
* Fix part action menus remaining on screen when switching to the Astronaut complex.
* Fix Building Picker Lines in Space Center not being cleared when application loses focus.
* Fix null reference exception when overwriting SubAssemblies in VAB/SPH.
* Fix resource converters load percentage display not updating after start/stop.
* Fix for several issues with the KSC flagpole outside the Administration Centre.
* Fix for vessel on the Launch pad at Baikerbanur (KSC 2) blocking ability to launch vessels from the KSC.
* Model fixes to the large drill part.
* Fix some more Text overflows in GUI.
* Fix where Fairings Disappears After using settings in flight.
* Fix for strut connectors attaching below surface on SRB-KD25k.
* Fix edge smoothing on Mk1 Inline.
* Fix particle effects on drills.
* Fix asteroid drill mass calculations.
* Fix for selecting/focusing craft that are very late for maneuver nodes.
* Fix for contracts app showing the wrong number of contracts.

+++Modding Stuff
* Add a common base class to all gameevents to allow mods to register and fire their own gameevents.
* Add method for searching for gameevents and mods can register to other mods gameevents.
* Add title to ResourceInfo so we can have a displayname that's not the key.

+++LoadGameDialog
When a game is saved it now creates an associated metadata file - called .loadmeta alongside the .sfs. This file contains a hash of the sfs save. When the loadgame dialog opens it will compare the hash in the .loadmeta file with the hash of the savegame, and if so it will use the data in the .loadmeta file for the load dialog details instead of parsing the whole save file.

+++Miscellaneous Stuff
* Biome refresh for Ike, Moho and Dres.
* Add Right-Shift as a default secondary binding for editor scroll when not OSX.
* Stop inactive aero/thermal data being shown in the editor scenes.
* Add display format to difficulty options values.
* Vessels now remember active navigation (Waypoints) when loading save games.
* Apply Engineer bonuses to drills and ISRU correctly.
* Update more details in DOxygen api docs.

 

Cheers!

Great, I have more crash log folders (all caused by the part highlight bug) than actual game folders, good it's been fixed.

Now time to wait.

*sits*

It's good to know that you guys are still updating KSP even after the walk out of many devs a couple of months back, kudos!

Bugfixes, nice... What about the terrain seams? Was kinda expecting that to be on the list too.

Wait, where are you supposed to put the patch file?

Hi, just execute the installer and then select the folder where you have KSP and click in Next and thats it.

@SQUAD @UomoCapra Confirm or deny:  Is it safe to drive rovers yet?

Seriously.  For real.  This is a problem.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Let's hope that those seams get fixed, Jebediah and the kerbals do not want to face the fact that their environment is fake!

Downloaded the patch and started up KSP, my loading bar keeps freezing on certain mod parts. Before it was a telescope piece, now it's a decoupler for Fuel Tanks Plus. Anyone else got this problem? My game just no longer loads.

HoloYolo: I agree.  I have been sending specialized rovers to Eve recently to create a base (I am using Extraplanetary Launchpads).  I launch them from my base on Gilly (made of landers), and thus I am able to get into a Low Eve Orbit with plenty of fuel for a retropropulsive entry.  Even then, however, my north-south precision is dependent on orbital inclination, and I therefore typically have to drive each rover 20-30 km to get it to my base.  Consequently, I have to drive over many seams to get to my destination.

I frequently find that when I try to go over a seam on Eve, I end up blowing one or more tires.  I believe this is most likely to occur if I hit the seam at an angle (instead of head on) or if I am going too fast.  Thankfully, the rovers are manned, so I can have a Kerbal get out and repair the tire.  Still, it is quite a nuisance (particularly when I am trying to drive uphill).  I am planning a similar operation for Duna, so hopefully this gets fixed soon.

Galileo: I can see why.  Based on my experience, that looks like a very high probability of a blowout.  I recommend quicksaving just before you try to move.

It's really disappointing @SQUAD didn't get to this bug.  1.2 is so close to being the KSP I want, but as a lover of all things rovers, this is almost as frustrating as the 1.1 wheels.  You're so close, Squad.  Don't fail us now!

* Fix for vessel on the Launch pad at Baikerbanur (KSC 2) blocking ability to launch vessels from the KSC.

Wait, what?

1.  KSC2 has an official name now?

2.  You can launch from there somehow?

1. Yes it has that name.

2. No you cannot. It was a bug in the vessel detection for the KSC launchpad (when you try to launch it checks if the launchpad has a vessel on it already). The bug was the two were using a name internally that was the same. So when you tried to launch at the KSC and you had a vessel sitting on the launchpad at Baikerbanur it detected it by mistake.
