[1.8.x] - Modular Kolonization System (MKS)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm posting this, if someone wants to run with it, NONE OF THIS IS IN A OFFICIAL RELEASE from the mod makers.

Locally I've fixed KAS 1.2 and KPBS to work in 1.7. I've created my own KPBS flexible corridors based on a PR Igorz submitted for KAS 1.2. I don't use MKS, Pathfinder or any other mods with flexible parts or I'd submit patches for them. Hopefully someone can use this to try to figure out a fix here.

You can also use the part .cfg files for the other KAS parts that form links as a guide. For a link you have to define a source, target, renderer and joint behavior. The biggest problem with this patch is it will only work in KAS 1.2+ as it using a new renderer for the tube (KASRenderBezierPipe)

@RoverDude takes pull requests.  And I know IVA's are his least favorite part of modding.

You laugh but I'm being serious.

Many if not all mods came from a player saying "I wish... was in the game" and decided to make it themselves.  Many modders began with little to no experience in various areas of modding (coding, modeling, texturing, IVA).  I'm pretty sure @RoverDude learned IVA's from scratch.

So if you really want to see an IVA for the Orca it will likely take you decided to watch some IVA tutorials and making one.

it's not really important for game-play and involve a lot of work in design so I totally understand the missing iva's in parts.

but still,I would really appreciate if someone has a basic iva placeholder for the mks parts that are missing iva view

it gets old seeing a black rectangle instead of a kerbal after a while

you can do that with an MM config to substitute a stock IVA.

Can someone help me?

I'm trying to scan an asteroid for resources. Everything i've read says the stock surface scanner should do it. But it doesn't.

I saw somewhere that this is an ancient bug in CRP, but i can't seem to find any follow up on the issue.

Any ideas on how to deal with this?

This is on 1.3, btw.

I searched a bit and I'm still not sure how to:

A. condition mm to add stock iva if iva missing

B.add stock iva with mm

a hint in the right direction would be greatly appreciated

@RoverDude Some while ago you announced an expansion (or a new mod?) for bigger bases, with completely new resource mechanics, and that it'll happen after the 1.7 launch. Is there any news on this? I'm not trying to push you, I just want to know if I should waid for a couple of weeks or just prepare a good old (but painfully slow) MKS base for my next mission ;) (or if there is a way to boost my FPS near MKS bases... 5-15 is my usual rate near a base, while outside its range I get 45)

I cannot figure out how to build or port IVA'S for the life of me.

 

Can someone give me the IVA for the Shuttle Pit and I will use that for the Orca for now?

 

Thanks!

Ok, updated to the newest version of everything. The problem still persists.

Stuck to a 'roid with the standard Klaw. Had a surface scanner on board.

Still no info about the resources it contains.

I am using ART too, so it could be an update issue? idk.

I think asteroids use the stock drill for harvesting, and if I remember correctly, you do not scan them, you just start harvesting.

I suspect that once you start harvesting you should have an idea of what is in the asteroid.

This is what its supposed to look like:

Unless that functionality has since been removed, which I have seen zero indication of.

 

UPDATE: The asteroid tool in the Buffalo rover pack works.

Hi, I have a question. Are RocketParts from ExtraplanetaryLaunchpads completly useless with MKS?

Yes. They are used in EL only as far as i know. MKS use Material and SpelcialKits.

In the past there used to be recepts that would make EL use the material and specialkits from MKS for all construction.

Plugging Pathfinder in the MKS thread (or vice-versa) is kind of like plugging Pepsi in a Coca-Cola ad. ;-)

Regarding comments further up, if I ever learn how to do IVAs, I would totally try to make some for MKS - just because I love IVAs.

And since I am in here being semi-snarky anyway, I'd like to say in all seriousness, thanks, RoverDude for continuing to enhance and support such a great mod - looking forward to seeing what other enhancements you come up with more it. Thanks for sharing it with us, and all the hard work.

I have one more question. So when ExtraplanetaryLaunchpads requires MaterialKits and SpecializedParts then recyclers from that mod are useless right?

EDIT: Nevermind, figured it out myself.
