[1.5.1, 1.6.1, 1.7.2] Flight Manager for Reusable Stages (FMRS), now with RecoveryController integration

Recommended Posts

I have the situation, that I have a carrier plane that grabs an orbit stage with a Klaw, flies that out of the worst part of the soup around Eve, then releases the orbit stage and flies back to the surface, while the orbit stage continues until it reaches orbit. I can fly both stages separately but haven't managed to merge them (yet?).

Because I use the Klaw, the "master vessel" that I control immediately after separation is the carrier plane. I can land the carrier, and then jump back to the orbit stage and fly that into orbit. But then I cannot merge the orbiting stage to the save with the landed carrier.

Is there a way to deal with this?

This only happens if you don't close the FMRS Flight Manager GUI before switching to another vessel or even before exiting the game directly from the flight scene. Yes, it's difficult to remember to close it and very annoying.

If only I didn't have 10 GUI windows on my screen at all times, I might notice the small FMRS panel. ;)

Huh, this is funny. Contrary to expectation, I'm perfectly able to use FMRS to watch parts without probe cores fall back to Kerbin. Like engines with a small fuel tank still attached to have something to put chutes on (activated simultaneously with the decoupler), or SRBs with chutes. Sometimes it even gives me the option of following chuteless debris down to its demise when I've specified that the stage should be managed by FMRS instead of Stage Recovery.

Anyway. Beautiful mod for someone who just loves to see those uncontrollable but expensive rocket parts sail back to the surface under a multitude of chutes.

Hello

I noticed that FMRS is working only on staging, not on action group that allow much more actions to perform at separation.

Is it possible to have it working on action group?

Not at the present time
