The blastRadius and explosionfx for the nukes I have in BDArmory Weapons Extension are based from the 5 psi over pressure and fireball created at explosion and is calculated from this site Nuke Map. The blastPower is calculated with kilotonyield/1.5*350 still testing this out.

Could you possibly do the Castle Bravo bomb in a future update?

I plan to make all the real nuclear bombs, nuclear torpedo, and ICBM past and present I can find the data I need on and fictional ones as well. I have to release this next update to correct some stuff like craft exploding outside of blast area which I have done now just testing things more so no new weapons in the next update. Then it's back to models and all future updates will include at least one new weapon but there will be many weapon packs and other things as well. NKD has Castle Bravo in it to fix the explosion problem going on in the current version simply copy the blastRadius and blastPower values in NuclearExplosionModule to the MissileLauncherModule and change the NuclearExplosionModule values to 0 in the config files of weapons with the values in the NuclearExplosionModule.

Is it possible to have the W-87 MIRV detonate while in the air and not when impacting the ground?

I have a plan to add a right click button just for this option, but for now it will detonate on impact of anything. You can also use advanced tweekables and tweekeverything to get more options. I have set things up so that different explosionFX happen at different altitudes wouldn't have a mushroom cloud in the air or in space so they are different. The next update will be based around improving the air and space explosionfx types. I think the ground explosionfx are good for now but I have more plans for them later.

Update: There is already an option in BDA's right click menu inside the VAB/Hanger to override the detonation height.

I was wondering if it was possible to make the bombs detonate instead of simply firing them. I know that in the actions menu there is an option to detonate the weapon but it doesn't seem to work. I've merged coding from the BDArmory Continued Small Warhead which can detonate and arm itself, but it has had limited success. Also wanted to say that I really enjoy using this mod and hope to see it grow in future updates. :)

I get what your saying :blush: yes I'm adding that in the next update, it will be a right click option to detonate when clicked. Thanks more coming.

Spoiler

"MK24" from the "Castle Yankee" test. 15MT yield.

I've seen the Mk24 nuclear weapon in the game files however it doesn't appear in the game itself. Is this just coming in a future update?

Hi i was wondering, where do i put the source code folder

It contains the code for my module and you don't need to extract it. If you do extract it put it anywhere other then the KSP install folder. You only need to place/extract the BDArmory Weapons Extension folder into your GameData folder.

Version 1.8 is moving right along and will include several new weapons and a new model for the W87. I have adjusted the camera over exposure effect time and it only occurs with weapons that have a blastRadius of 1000 m or more. There is an issue with explosionFX following aircraft after detonation, this a known BDArmory issue #171 and as far as I know it is being worked on. This update is centering around fine tuning everything and getting it the way I want and expect it to behave.  This update will include a number of nuclear and conventional bombs one of which is in the spoiler posted above. I will be adding a png texture to the explosionFX folder as well. It controls the smoke texture for all explosions and can be modified. Do not rename, change the size, or move this texture or it will break the explosionFX.

Must be a personal issue I'm having no trouble. They are located at CurseForge.
