[1.5.1, 1.6.1, 1.7.2] The Kaptain's Log

Recommended Posts

While fixing some bugs, I got to a point where fixing one was creating another.  So I ended up rewriting the core the the mod.  It had originally been fairly simple, then as ideas came and more suggestions came, it was patched, repatched, modified, etc.

Now with the rewrite, the core is simpler, cleaner, and (hopefully) bug-free.

I also took this opportunity to add some features, including the ability to "Tag" log entries for filtering.

As always, usage reports and suggestions are welcome

New release, 0.1.1:

  • Disabled the screenmessages:
    •         Global settings saved
    •         Global settings loaded
    •         Window Positions Saved

  • Removed "Narrow" button from narrow Screen Messages Window
  • Changed TextField to Label for the Main Window display
  • Made MainWindow resizable

  • set default main width to 1000
  • Disabled closing main window when showing screen messages window
  • Added screenshotOnManualEntry
  • Added check for landed
  • Added pause, log and screenshot options for landed
  • Added hotkey for manual entry
  • Added window in settings to enter hotkey
  • Removed "Make Log Entry" from Main window, replaced with new hotkey
  • Added new options to Misc in settings:

    •         minFlyingAltitude
    •         minFlyingTime

Pardon my ignorance, but I have a question.

Am I correct in thinking that to update this mod I'll have to download it anew and extract the fresh download into the directory?  Do I need to do anything like delete the old mod directory first?

Yes, you are correct.  You will probably overwrite any settings files.

Thanks man!

You're welcome.

Consider using CKAN to manage your mods.  It's not for everybody and while some mod developers can't stand it and refuse to have their mods on it, I find it a useful tool.

Remember, however, that if you do use it and a mod doesn't work when installed via CKAN, your first step should be to remove the mod via CKAN and then to try a manual install.  If the problem persists, it's probably not CKAN's fault and you can raise the issue in the mod's thread.  Remember to mention that the mod was installed via CKAN as it can help diagnosis.  Otherwise, go to the CKAN thread.

I have encountered a strange thing.   as far as I am aware I have never installed this mod.  I have looked in the GameData folder and there is not a directory named "KaptainsLog" or anything like this. so I assume it is really not installed.  however the weirdness comes in now.  when I launch my game KSP-AVC is telling me my KaptainsLog mod is out of date and needs to be updated.

 

so I am questioning if this mod or at least some part of it found it's way into another of your mods files.

 

 

Oh and just to let you know I have also done a "search" in windows to search all subdirectories in gamedata for "KaptainsLog" and it finds nothing.  so no directories hidden down several levels or a stray .dll tucked away somewhere.

Only using this because there aren't any alternatives

Honestly though, I was disappointed by the excessive typos, bugs and overall lack of effort that seems to have gone into it.

Then either don't use it or submit a pull request.  I'm sure LinuxGuruGamer would appreciate the help.

You sir are an amazing man. This is exactly the kind of mod I've wanted for several years. Maybe now I can spend more time playing rather than documenting. Just have to spend a few hours now adjusting html templates...

Hey can you update this mod for 1.4.1?

I'm sure that LinuxGuruGamer will get to it when he finds the time and the priority is right.  He supports over 100 mods and, more importantly, has a Real Life somewhere (although how he does it is a bit of a enigma).  Please be patient and just follow the thread.  Prodding him for updates will inevitably delay the process since he has to answer the same question multiple times.  It's generally considered bad form to ask.

Hi - This looks exactly what I have been looking for... 

Does it work on 1.4.5? Not sure if I am installing wrong or just to ahead of the game. I just don't see any of the options in settings. 

Many thanks.

Yes, it does.  Did you install the dependencies?

The problem is likely to be between the chair and the keyboard....

I have installed:

  • ClickThroughBlocker
  • ToolbarControl
  • ProgressParser
