[1.5.1+] KSPCasher: Cash Economy Rebalance, Continued

Recommended Posts

This is a revival and contuation of the KSP Casher mod, written by @astat , original thread here:  http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/139279-112-kspcasher-cash-economy-rebalance-021-22-may-2016/

The new version for KSP 1.4.1 has new dependencies

New Dependencies

CKAN has been updated to install the dependencies, if needed.

What this mod does is:

  • Buy tech nodes for cash
    Nodes in the research tree will now cost funds instead of science. Any science spent is refunded when you leave the R&D building.
  • Get cash for science
    Turn science into cash at the click of a button
  • Daily budget
    Every day at 4am you receive cash according to your reputation level. Use the "Warp to next morning" button if that node is just a few bucks away.
  • Let you configure all the above
    Click the "$" button to change the multipliers for all of the above, values are saved with your save game

But Why?

Career mode for me just seems to be motivated only by science, and most can agree it's a bit of a grind unlocking the tree. Making this easy change using the plugin system allowed me to play the game with a slightly different outlook, and combined with other mods you are able to progress the game using contracts or funds from your production/mining empire. The reputation budget is just another way to reduce grind, go ahead and time accelerate that engine tech upgrade if you need to.

Another great mod revived - I used this one a LOT back when it worked. A request, though, if I may - I have another mod that does the budget part. Is it possible to turn this one's completely off, either through toggle or setting the multiplier to zero?

Trying this mod and have some issues

- Purchasing science appear to clash with Kerbal Construction Time. Basically I can buy a science node despite not having enough fund, and KCT is happy to add the node onto its research queue. Disabling KCT research time workarounds this.

- Every time I leave the VAB I get the budget :confused:

I would venture to think that this would not work with KCT.  

And when leaving the VAB, I assume you have KCT installed?

Yes I have KCT kspv1.2_3 (which is a dev version) installed.

Then all I can say is, looks like an incompatibility.  I'll add it to my Todo list, but it's pretty far down, especially with 1.3 around the corner.

I will get the OP updated later to reflect this

public void TechUnlockEvent(GameEvents.HostTargetAction<RDTech, RDTech.OperationResult> ev)
{
  	// [snip]
	int num = ev.host.scienceCost * 10000;

Please fix it to actually use ScienceBuyMultiplier! Spent an hour wondering if I was going insane ;.;

EDIT: Sorry, missed the github link. Sent a PR.

At the risk of dumb questions... 1.4 in progress with an ETA of 'Eventually'? :)

Appears to work with 1.4.1, but I do get the nasty-gram message on game load about it being built for 1.3.1.
