To be honest, i did not :) 

There is one part that can be attached to a rover on the front, to create an unmanned rover, but never really how sized parts for an unmanned rover. Might take a look at it at some day ;) 

Can you make parts for rover stages?

Hi, can anyone tell me what i am doing wrong? Even with only the Lynx Cockpit, 2 Lynx Service bays, a Lynx rear airlock, and Talon wheels it rolls every time i try to turn even slightly. Kerbin, Mun, Minmus, it makes no difference. It rolls on them all.

This is likely due to reaction wheels acting in conjunction with the wheel steering.  Two options here if this is the case:

a) change all reaction wheels/parts with reaction wheel modules to "SAS Only".  Now they will not react to manual steering input, so you can drive normally without trying to torque the whole rover around.

b) Edit your control settings so that Drive Forward, Drive Reverse, Steer Left, Steer Right controls are remapped to (or have alternative keys) something that is not the same as the usual WASD.  Personally, I disable using the arrow keys for camera control and instead use them for my rover steering.

i thought that at least the textures are not working because KPS does not support DXT3 textures anymore and FUR still uses them for the diffuse textures.

Actually no it doesn't (I know I'm replying to the mod author here :P). I just loaded up on 1.8.1 and got no errors. DXT3 textures throw log errors. So all good there

However you will find that the KSPedia entries will need to be updated and do throw errors. I've just removed them for now

Oh, thanks for the hint with KSPedia, totally forgot these. Will prepare an update for them.

Then the export option from Paint.net for dds is a bit misleading. :D I'm 100% sure i chose DXT3 for diffuse textures because it does not have an alpha channel. Well thats even better, so i don't have to change so much.

I used to use this mod a while ago and wanted to use it again, but I am confused as to whether it actually works on 1.8.1 (my current save install). I would love to use it again :)

It works with 1.8.1

Hey there. I love the mod and was my first pick for my new reinstall, but I encountered a slight and very annoying issue: When subjected to high forces, the rover becomes... twisted...

Basically, it goes all janky, veering to one side, you can see the seams as adjecent parts rotate from each other, etc. I loved how it was always able to compensate for....uhm.... adventurous driving, but it seems to have lost that ability. Even worse, this also happens when the grabber in the cargo hold...well... grabs it to hold it on the cargo hold.

Is this a 1.9 issue, or has anyone encountered it before?

 

Ps.: maybe add an alignment rectifier module? Flipping is the only weakness, but the unflipper tools are much more flimsy during a crash than the rover itself.

I am using 1.8.1 and i just noticed that the two types of storage boxes are missing that i realy liked. am i doing something wrong or looking in the wrong spot, or were they removed for some reason? if they were, could you put them back? they are very usefull for adding small and large storage boxes that look nice on rovers and some landers. Thanks. love the style of the rover.

Most likely removed by the game itself because 1.8 changed unity versions and so caused some parts from part mods to go missing, just needs to be updated to 1.8 or 1.9 that's all

Which to storage boxed do you not find? Are they from a mod, or for the vanilla game?

Will take a look what happends...sounds like a new issue with KSP 1.9 to me.
You mean the joints and hitches right?

Looks like a docking port attached after a hitch. Attaching docking ports or grabbing units to the trailer has always caused troubles.

Can you tell me, what happens when you dock or grap onto the trailer? I have tried and tested many options and really thought i had removed nearly all errors :/ 

Edit: Even better, do you have a save (best without many other mods) where a Problem can be reproduced?

Hmmm... nothing. I remember some weird glitches with trailer wobbling and clipping in earlier versions (the same as with docking ports attached to Infernal Robotics parts) but I couldn't reproduce them in 1.9. Also I couldn't reproduce this problem:

Yes, stock wheel physics has been changed (again) in 1.9 and tires grip has been reduced so high speed driving with a trailer became more challenging because it doesn't roll like on rails anymore. Not more challenging than it is with KF wheels and trailer attached with BG joint, but more challenging than it used to be. Spring and damping settings of a joint should be adjusted to prevent resonant oscillations of a trailer. And it's extremely easy to loose control at high speed (like in real life)491oPFx.png

The parts that i cant find were two small lockers or storage boxes. i think they were called feline storage boxes cor containers or something like that. they worked with kis and kas they were smaler than a kerbal, black and one was longer or taller than the other. they were able to surface attach and said storage or something similar to that on them. very nice looking and added small storage bays any place i needed them. great for rovers and carrying small parts for kerbals to access from the side of the ship. they were not the larger cargo boxes that kis and others have. wold love to have them again. they looked awsome.

These them?

They have nothing to do with this mod.  They were a part of Surface Experiment Pack, and are scheduled to be included into the next version of KIS.

ok those are the ones i have been looking for. for some reason they were named wrong and i thought they belonged to this mod. thank you for clearing that up. i love feline rovers mod and thought i did something wrong.

@Nils277 Since this is called Feline Utility Rovers, plural, did or do you intend to add more rover types to make a family with the Lynx being one of a variety of models? Just curious.

There are two different cabs and two different drone units, as well as different wheels and hover fans. You can obviously create plural rovers. I believe the name 'feline rovers' is a nod to the very similar malemute (canine) rover from USI.

I would like to have it as pictures at least. To remind.

Laboratory still cannot upgrade Kerbals,

Rear drill can be built for Ore or Dirt. But Convert-o-tron cannot use Dirt. Why? Why should I build dirt drill on rover, where I cannot use it? At least allow to change drill mode on field. It has both stats already. (I was surprized Squad Drills both can get Ore, Dirt, ExM, RareM for some reason. OSE Workshop and KBPS installed.)

Service modules spam console message if mouse over.

Thanks.

Honestly, I don't see that as a problem, personally - this is a field lab built into a rover, not a real full lab.  It's biggest use to me is making it easier to reset experiments as I go from biome to biome.

I think the Squad drills are getting all the resources from OSE.  Nothing else installed?  My suspicion is that something's just patching dirt into every drill.
