I'll be maintaining from now on, or until BahamutoD returns.

BahamutoD's original thread as of (3/2/14), also posted below:

 

These are a pair of animated augers (one large, one small) for the Extraplanetary Launchpads mod by skykooler and taniwha.

They do not overwrite any parts from the mod and aren't officially part of the mod, just my own addon for them.

-Known 0.23.5 bugs:

-Launchpad dances while being deployed

-3D printer falls through things/things fall through it

Version 1.2

-Added expandable containers

-Added Launchpad

-Added 3D rocket parts printer

Notes: Includes an early version of my Animation Modules plugin that allows the container and 3d printer animations.

I'm not entirely satisfied with the 3D printer yet but I thought I'd let people play with it for now.

Source for the plugin:

This is awesome, good work.

I found these drills long ago, and modified them to work with stock... but I never released them from fear of licencing and backlash... that was before I knew much about it.

I need to download them and compare it to my fixes :)

These are thee most beautiful drills in the game... it's really good to see them available again!!

I just took the stats of the original and config'ed them in the stock code.

Spacedock actually made a reasonable version, but it was missing ModuleManager as a dependency.

it's been updated.

I've never used these, can someone explain why I would want them? (Other than that the models look awesome)

I guess there are other minor benefits, like size, shape... but mainly because they look AWESOME!

Other than the models look awesome, the models look awesome :D

But really no, they don't offer any new functionality, unless there's a ventral drill in the mix which is - imo - the biggest missing part in stock.

Ooo... I forgot about these drills. Brings me back to before resources were a thing with KSP. Thanks for bringing them back. :)

I may just make this, as a gift to the mod. I had thought of making a large drilly part to make something like the Mole from Thunderbirds are Go!

Noticed an issue

Spoiler

MODULE
{

    name = ExTarget

    TargetName = Pad

    TargetTransform = DockingEmpty

}

// Add Build Capability


MODULE
{

    name = ExLaunchPad

    SpawnHeightOffset = 0
}

far as I can tell the modules are supposed to be  named "ELTarget and ELLaunchPad" respectively. I changed the ExTarget to ELTarget and the module popped up when I reloaded the game, however I didnt see the Launchpad module pop up when I tried the same with it. Im not sure if I should specify a transform name(what could it be?) or..what could be missing. any help would be appreciated. cheers!

got it

Spoiler


MODULE
    {
        name = ELLaunchpad
        SpawnTransform = LaunchTransform
    }
    MODULE
    {
        name = ELTarget
        TargetName = Pad
        TargetTransform = LaunchTransform
    }

 

I have always loved Baha mods, glad to see you are keeping this one alive.

Thanks @Eskandare for updating this (and reminding me it exists!)

I found a bug though!  The attach node for the LaunchPad is inverted, as are the 3D printer.  Is this on purpose?

To fix them, change the 1.0 in node stack bottom to -1.0.

The Launchpad should read:

node_stack_bottom = 0.0, -0.762755, 0.0, 0.0, -1.0, 0.0, 2

The same for the 3D printer.

node_stack_bottom = 0.0, -0.2942, 0.0, 0.0, -1.0, 0.0, 2

I'll be adding support for this in Simplex TechTree when the next version drops in about 20 minutes or so :).  And the upcoming Simplex Resources mod.

With Simplex Resources, I'm not supporting Interstellar Fuel Switch at this stage - maybe later in 2019, but the tanks still fill, even if they don't expand :).


Peace.

Thanks for the catch! I'll update with the correction.

Also, I know it avalable on SpaceDock (which is GREAT), but the direct links for the mod and source do NOT work... ??

Now looking in the zip, I dont see a plugin specific to this mod (?)... so I guess no reason for a source link... unless you wanna put the source models and textures up... ;)

source *code* ... some devs with open licenses also make the source *models/textures/Unity project files* for parts, also available... Like Ven did, for example ;)
