[1.7.x] Near Future Props - prop assets for IVA developers

Recommended Posts

KSP 1.7.x 

Near Future Props [0.5.1] 
Last Updated April 15, 2019

W9kMgLq.png

This is something rather different than my other "products". It's a set of props designed for use in creating IVAs and is really of no use for your average user. That's why it's in Addon Development.

Unlike say, ASET props, this set is more designed to extend stock props and be used for decorations rather than interactive functionality. I hope it will be helpful in increasing people's IVA work velocity and removing some pain. Currently most of the props are station-focused, but there are enough bits that they can be used in many other situations.

What's in the box?

  • Hatches: A number of prop hatches
  • Seats: several seat types, from pilot seats to fold-up wall seats
  • Habitation: A number of hab-focused props like beds, tables, whiteboards, lockers, fans, radios...
  • Cargo: Some general cargo props including re-exported versions of the stock cargo bags
  • Payload Racks: A bunch of props vaguely based on the ISS payload rack concept. Some frames, plus many things to go in said frames
  • Lighting: A few different models of light
  • Food: Really should be called "Coffee"
  • Rails and Ladders: Handholds and ladder components
  • Console pieces: Some props that can be used to create flight consoles
  • Computers: A few actual computer bits, like laptops, screens, keyboards and the like
  • Static Screens:  Flat screen planes with a number of designs, like engineering readouts and orbital displays. And SimFarm.
  • Paper: A bunch of various paper labels and props, like clipboards, notebooks and manuals
  • RPM Assets: Some props have RPM versions, specifically the MFD screens. This support will only be enabled with RPM installed though.

The full current list is here. You can check out the following screenshot gallery for a general glimpse at the props, though it is by no means complete.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do you have RPM support?
A: Some props have support. Not all of them.

Q: Add xxxx please!
A: No.

@Nertea, those are really impressive.  I'm no modder, so I won't be using these obviously; but besides helping other modders speed things along, this really demonstrates how much design and artwork is required to build an IVA.  My hat's off to ya. :)

Thank you for this @Nertea I would have gladly used this for the Rack and components alone but the coffee and not pads are too good to pass up! Its the extra detail my habs needed.

MiniAVC took me to the other Near Future thread, and not this one.  Leaving me confused about whether NearFutureProps meant Near Future Propulsion.

:confused:

Yeah it should take you there. This is for developers only, any of the packages in that thread (and elsewhere) should be fully updated.

Stockalike Station Parts has not been, presumably due to your stated intent to deprecate it.  I just downloaded it today, and don't see a way to update the included version .2.0 of this package to .2.1.  Should I just disable MiniAVC?

EDIT: Can confirm that works, as does installing the beta build of the successor mod.

There's a download in the OP if you really care a lot. The improvements are irrelevant to anything currently in the releases forum though.

If I may point out what confounded me in downloading this for a number of days.
On the Github primary download site, under "Assets", I find Source Code. And Source Code.
I have since found that the Souce Code zip does appear to hold the compiled stuff to pour into Game Data.
If that was explained there someplace, I apologize, I must have missed that (happesn, as I'm visually challenged).NFP.png

Weird, the release zip has not been attached to that. I'll fix that.

@Nertea, after seeing your assorted update posts in your various mod threads, I gotta say your sarcasm has reached a new, arid level, of dryness. :D

First Error out of the box.

 

Using Stockalike Station (Current Version is 1.0.4 for 1.42) and the station props  this latest version 0.3.3 for 1.4.3) and it gives me the warning to please use 1.4.2 (As I have 1.4.3 installed)

 

I think this is an issue as the stockalike parts are not updated (yet)

 

Just an observation.
