[1.3.1] Rescale! Comprehensive SD Configs [1.0.2.8] [03 Dec 2017]

Recommended Posts

Will NOT work with KSP 1.4.

Rescale!

v1.0.2.8 change log

  • Updated for compatibility with latest Module Manager and the latest Sigma Dimensions v 0.9.6

This is the most complete set of Sigma Dimensions configs available on the KSP forum.

Due to so many people asking why other scaling "mods" don't work properly and for people that don't fully understand how to write their own cfgs, I decided to throw together some cfgs that I use in GPP, and tweaked them to work with stock and all planet packs.

 

REQUIRES:
KOPERNICUS AND SIGMA DIMENSIONS

 

All configs work with:

 

 

Sigma Dimensions now handles Scatterer scaling and antenna ranges. Hellelujah!

 

KNOWN ISSUES:

  • Scatterer doesn't scale very well. :/ It works but you may see some artifacts that are kind of an eyesore

 

THE SIZES

2.5x - The optimal size for users who want a bigger system but still want to use stock parts.

3.2x - About the same as 2.5x but a step up in difficulty.

6.4x - A much larger rescale that may require you to rescale the stock parts via SMURFF or RO. Or don't. It's your life.

10x - Roughly a true to life size rescale that will definitely require SMURFF or RO.

10.625x - Closest to real life scale as you can get. Will need SMURFF or RO.

NOTE: I highly recommend that you use KRONOMETER with these cfgs so that your in game clock and dates are correct.
 

Will NOT work with KSP 1.4.

I think that @Sigma88 actually implemented dynamic EVE layer altitude adjustment so that it didn't need to be multiplied by a scaling factor in the config (in GPP we just did it because thats how you wanted it as it looked better :P ).

Therefore:

	@OBJECT,*
	{
		@altitude *= 0.62
	}

I think is unecessary... but its good for reference if anyone wants to manually adjust the height for all EVE layers.

I think that altitude node is unecessary... but its good for reference if anyone wants to manually adjust the height for all EVE layers.

He did a good while back, but it doesn't look right in my opinion. Unless he has rewrote the way he did it in the past, I'd say it's necessary, but I also have not SD with out that node in a long time. Wasn't it rescaling the clouds by the rescale value? So at a 2x rescale, if I have an altitude of my clouds at 6k, it used to make it 12k. 10x was 60k, etc. whatever it did the altitude was way off. If that has changed I don't know about it.

like you said though, it's probably not needed, but leaving it probably won't hurt.

Very nice.

I'll make sure to add a link to this thread on the SD OP as soon as I get back in the country :)

If you guys would be so kind as to test this out with your packs that would be awesome. I added support for the stars in your planet packs. The scatterer sun flares should scale with the rescale value. I haven't tested them myself because my internet has been slow and I don't have all day to download the packs. There are some things that will be changing over the next few days but basic functionality is there.

I'll test it for KSS tomorrow :)

Also it should be noted that Kerbin's SMA has been adjusted ever so slightly in all configs to give an integer amount of Solar Days for one Sidereal Year so that the position of Kerbin is true from an Epoch sense when compared to the in game calendar.

I'll try it out as soon as possible. People have been asking for Sigma Dimensions compatibility anyways, and it would be cool for IA-Revived to have all its real-life objects be real-scale. However, I would probably save SD compatibility until version 1.3.1, because I have a lot to do for version 1.3 at the moment.

I removed that for the time being. I want to add it back but be pack specific.

I have made some changes and have pushed an update. @Gameslinx @StarCrusher96 @AndrewDrawsPrettyPictures @ProtoJeb21 If you guys could test the latest versions and let me know, I would be grateful. I didn't get any feedback last I asked so I don't know if these are working as intended. No rush, though.

GPP support has been added, but since the cfgs are included in GPP currently, there is no point to use these cfgs yet. If you want, you could delete the rescale cfg that comes with GPP and add these.

Downloads have been moved to GitHub. link on the front page.

I've got a bunch of time for modding tomorrow, so I'll do it then.

I'll start testing as soon as I stop getting distracted making a beautiful tropical city on the island of Esroniet for Skyrim! :P

That's what I just finished playing a few days ago. I can never get fully into it though. I spent a month modding the game to my liking, then once I was done, I had no want to play anymore. :/ so I came back to ksp.

This is my greatest fear regarding KSP at the moment - I have spent more time in notepad++ than in the VAB recently. :o

@Galileo Loaded it up (Note: I had to change NEEDS:[Olei] to NEEDS:[GPO] because my dumb folder naming scheme is confusing :P )

It workes a treat! Scatterer seems alright to be fair. Sunflare scales properly. Looks awesome :)

Tried it, broke the game, etc, etc.

I think I'll just stick with a 10x version for IA-Revived...

The sentiment is shared. I think I enjoy (by too much) modding more than casually playing.

Small update. 

  • Gameslinx root folder correctly listed in cfgs now.
  • Sun flare and ghost fade in and out are resized by the rescale value
  • A.I. Revived is no longer supported due to Sigma Dimension not agreeing with that packs cfgs.

Will this be possible to work on the planet pack i'm developing at the moment? All my configs have @Kopernicus:FOR[BK] so stuff might work a bit smoother. If this is too much effort, do not worry :)

I haven't looked ad galileo's configs but if he is using sd correctly (and I think he is) then your planet pack will be compatible as long as it is written properly

If it doesn't work it's either a sd bug (not likely) or a bug in your mod. (Or possibly a missing feature in sd)

Yeah it will work, as sigma said.

@Galileo I noticed on 10.675x, you can't see remotetech ground stations. I figured out this was because the distance to make them invisible was too low, would it be possible to multiply the "DistanceToHideGroundStations" in RemoteTechSettings by the Rescale factor? Here's some code that should, in theory, do it: 

@RemoteTechSettings 
{
	@DistanceToHideGroundStations *= #$@SigmaDimensions/Rescale$
}

that should make RemoteTech ground stations visible in any rescale
