Just so you know I haven't forgotten, keeping an eye on it even though I can't reproduce it.

How dare you have a life outside of your unpaid modding time!

Seriously though, I get it. It's fine man. It might have been a problem with my KSP installation though. When I posted that earlier, I removed all my other mods first and rechecked. However, the other day I had to have Steam rebuild my install due to some corrupted files, so it's possible that there was something like that going on. Anyway, if I see it again I'll see if I can dig a little deeper.

Hey, is there a place where I can find these mods for other ksp versions? I'm running 1.3.1 and can't seem to find these mods in that version

It looks like the latest update of B9 Part Switch v2.4.0 broke the truss-spinal-01 and truss-spinal-02 parts in Near Future Construction. My workaround was to downgrade to the previous version (v2.3.3) of B9 Part Switcher. Here are the logs regarding the broken parts:

EDIT: Because apparently 1.5 was released yesterday, I am still on 1.4.5. Both Part Switcher versions also list 1.4.5 as the compatible version.

I just got hit with the same exact problem.   Confirmed it was the Construction mod by removing it from the install.

B9PartSwitch 2.4.0 is compiled for KSP 1.5.0, not 1.4.5, but I just tried it in 1.5.0 and the same error occurs.

One of the changes listed in the B9PartSwitch 2.4.0 release announcement is that "a few incompatibilities that previously silently disabled functionality are now fatal errors".  This may be an instance of that.

As an emergency fix you can open GameData\NearFutureConstruction\Parts\Truss\truss-spinal\truss-spinal-01.cfg and add name attribute to endcap variants. That solved the problem for me.

please explain. I assume you mean the last segment of subtypes of ModuleB9PartSwitch

quickfix (I assume this now works by giving a child a proper name :P)

Spoiler

	MODULE
	{
		name = ModuleB9PartSwitch
		moduleID = meshSwitch3
		switcherDescription = #LOC_NFConstruction_switcher_endcap_title1

		SUBTYPE
		{
			name = Endcap1 // was empty
			title = #LOC_NFConstruction_switcher_endcap_variant1

			transform = TRUSSTOP
			transform = COLLIDERTOPA01
			transform = COLLIDERTOPA02
			transform = COLLIDERTOPA03
			transform = COLLIDERTOPA04
		}
		SUBTYPE
		{
			name = Endcap2 // was empty
			title = #LOC_NFConstruction_switcher_endcap_variant2
			node = top02
			transform = TRUSSTOPSOLID
			transform = COLLIDERTOPB
			addedMass = 0.03
			addedCost = 75
		}
		SUBTYPE
		{
			name = Endcap3 // was empty
			title = #LOC_NFConstruction_switcher_endcap_variant3
			transform = TRUSSTOPFRAME
			addedMass = -0.01
			addedCost = -25
		}
	}

It's weird that it even ever worked with that bug.

1.5 era updates will fix it, hopefully soon.

was having the same problem with the spinal trusses and b9partswitch.

used nertea's updated cfg's from the dev section of the github and those seem to work now. 

not getting any errors any longer. so thanks.

@Nertea Have you ever considered adding some SCRAM-jets to NF Aeronautics? Gotta go fast eh

Are they useful in the stock sized solar systems, though? You'd be achieving orbital speeds pretty quickly with scramjets (and overheating too)

depends, you could probably get enough speed to reach even the mun provided you don't burn up going that fast

it would definitely be even more useful on larger scale systems or larger oxygenenated planets (i.e. GPP's Tellumo)

still i see it being useful on stock sized oxygenated planets as a sort of high ISP SOI exit engine or even going interplanetary perhaps or making LF only SSTO's easier or heck, as a step inbetween the project eeloo engine

regardless it would create intresting design challenges and would probably still be quite balanced

I have considered it but I have a lot of projects that are in need of more attention than this one.

@BRAAAP_STUTUTU @juanml82 How I'm reading the technical data  about scramjets, It is estimated that the max speed for ramjets may be  somewhere from mach 10 to mach 17, to even orbital velocity, at mach 25(depending depending on the assumptions and input data). 
Kerbin Orbital velocity is somewhere at mach 6-7ish. For our stock size purposes, conventional ramjets are scramjets.

Btw
Mk2 expansion has a scramjet, which can get up to mach 10.
While testing, I got a cheat plane up to dres.

For stock size, Scramjets are too Powerfull to be reasonable.
But they would work well for RSS I could Imagine

Working through some minor bugfixes for these mods. Most should be done shortly except NFSpacecraft, which is under heavy dev to bring it to 1.0 state.

Screen_Shot_2018-09-24_at_11.38.41_PM.pn

1.0 state includes 6 new pods and facelifts for the others....

Those new pods look ah-mazing.

Could you also please add a 5m heat shield for the large command pod, so we can use it to haul large numbers of Kerbals to orbit and back?

Nope, you can now use the 3.75m shield properly though due to a lot of changes to how that pod works. In addition there is another large pod that is not shown there that should be better for up/down stuff.

A high capacity 2.5m pod that doesn't look like Dragon?
