there was a problem with these trusses before I thought all of that got fixed.

maybe this is something different though

my B9PartSwitch seems to be having a kaniption over them for some reason and is very vocal about it hehe.

That's embarrassing. It's a test image for the packager, I'm not sure how it got in there :(

Keep the file in the folder, that's now part of the legend :D

*chuckle* which came first, the oven roasted or freeze dried chicken, or the Easter Egg?

 

Nertea - love the mods and appreciate all the work you do. Have a request - I think KSPi has a heat managment window that you can activate to see in the editor and in flight well, the heat and so on. Any way to have similar in one of your mods? Would be most excellent.

Copying/pasting the near_future_construction files last seems to fix the problem.

This isn't a problem, you can ignore the warnings, it will be fixed in the next update.

Some unfortunate news.

I discovered last week that the part files for NFA were not ported over to my current development machine some months ago. Normally I could go and get them, but subsequently I replaced the drive on the old box. The models and textures seem to have made it over intact, but the part 'rigging' will need to be completely redone before any fixes and modifications to the models can be implemented. This probably pushes the NFA 1.7 update 2-3 months out.

So sorry and I can only commiserate from afar.  That must have been incredibly frustrating to discover...that sinking feeling when you realize stuff's vanished.  I'm glad you won't just give up and we'll see the rebuilt parts when you can get to it.

I really like the gas jet effects you use for the RCS blocks. Is it possible to add this effect to the other RCS thrusters in-game. I really like it.

But it is working with 1.7 just fine right?

I will never forget the time I deliberately formatted a floppy disk full of stuff on my Commodore 64, without a backup copy. Also, for some stupid reason, I thought the format command itself wouldn't do anything if I left off a parameter. I honestly don't know what I was thinking, but I do remember the moment. It must have been my Asperger's acting up. Temporary insanity. Anyway, that was about the dumbest thing I ever did with a computer, because of course I lost everything on the disk, and it wasn't a "quick" format kind of thing. The floppy drive just clicked away merrily and then the blood drained from my face and my stomach dropped as I realized what I'd done.

I've kept backups of backups of backups from then on.

Well, at least you learned your lesson early on :)

Does anyone know of a config for the MK3B Pandora spacecraft that adds the ASET/RPM IVA props on the cockpit panel? Or does that have to be made yet?

Whats the story on the NODE nodes in some of the Near Future Spacecrafts? What they do?

NODE
	{
		name = jet1 // whatever you fancy
		transform = node0
		size = 0
		method = FIXED_JOINT
	}

Also, @Nertea, what does the future hold for the deployable circular panels?

Why in the NFSolarCommunityTechTree.cfg are the static truss solar panels requiring advSolarTech, but in solarpanel-static-truss-1.cfg the tech required is electrics?   Some mod update has taken a plane made with solar trusses unable to launch again because its listed as an experimental part (https://imgur.com/a/NcLgQlz)

That's how you tell the game to use a specific object in the model file to locate the node. It can be easier than dealing with a text node specification in some cases, as with the engine pod nodes, which have fairly nonstandard rotations.

The circular panels are still around of course.

Well, you have to support both configurations. The one in the base file is for no-CTT, and the other is, as evidenced by the name, triggered with CTT installed. If you see that part in Electrics, something is wrong (did you install CTT partway through the save? Do you have ModuleManager?)

I can't really comment on that experimental part warning - I assume it's from another mod or something, I've never seen it before?

Unavailable Experimental Parts warnings occur in Career Mode when you have researched the part in the R&D Building but have not purchased the unlock fee in the Editor.

Ah, I see - thanks. 

 

In that case the answer is to go unlock the part from the appropriate node.

Ok.  It was just weird that at one point I could use the solar trusses with only researching electronics

Just wanted to pop in and say the Mk3-9 Command Pod RasterPropMod IVA is amazing. I'm so excited to use it to control my space station, using the "Rhea" variant (torque city)!

Thanks for all your work Nertea, this stuff is like nothing else is gaming.

Are the 1.7 updates backwards compatible to 1.6?
