Hi, I'm looking at this for a CKAN thing, and I think there is a problem with the ZIP: The FoxDefenseContracts folder in GameData contains another FoxDefenseContracts folder, but the part configs seem to assume there will be only one; this will not load if the current structure in the ZIP is copied to GameData:

	fireSoundPath = FoxDefenseContracts/Sounds/105mm

There is also a .git folder in the ZIP, which users probably should not install.

Looks like ckan is pulling from my github page, and seems that the upload is off.
I don't use Ckan at all and it's better off to download directly, but let me see if I can fix it real quick.

So I just had a quick test with the new update and the part are great and very varied. I already have many ideas for builds using the new parts and the the new way of handling the ammo makes it a lot simpler and easier.

I am also very happy to see my suggestion of using the fox defense armor camos for the bd modular armors.

But there are also some problems I found, starting from the least significant:

Some of the new parts textures look a bit oversaturated, at least to me (the R3 turret and the M109)

The type-87 Anti Air seems to have its fire rate cut in half. In the mod it has a salvo fire rate (combined fire rate of the 2 guns) of 550 but I believe the fire rate should be 550 per gun

Finally my biggest gripe with the update is that the radars on the new spaa turrets are OP as hell. Most of them being more than 4x more powerful than the normal BDarmorys TWS locking radar and their max range being set to 100km is a bit silly also. I think they would be fine you just copied the radar attributes of the goalkeeper radar or the jernas missile turret radar to them which would make them more inline with the normal BDarmory power level.

 

ps. I dont think m163 should have a radar as it only has a ranging radar irl, but I guess you could just make it a weak scan-only radar with like a 2-5 km range.

I think they do look a lil saturated, and may be due to monitor? but this could be caused by the Ambient occlusion that i added to the new turrets. I can revert them to just diffuse and normal maps at a later update.

Seems like that was an oversight on my end. I didn't read the wikipedia on them correctly (Blame 4am working on the mod moods!)
So I'll put in a quick change to the part via github later tonight.

Radars, far as they could see would be about 55km, I think reducing them to 30km max might be much better, but absolute detection would be set to where they can see irl. Though, that just might be too much. playing with rcs and range is finicky at best. But they should just be only 55km at max with very big rcs like over 60rcs.

M163 only has scanning and cannot lock. Has limited range too from what i know.
