Thank You, the block 5 is actually a good looking rocket with the black ascents.  I guess one day Elon will be asking, " so what color would you like the rocket? sure sure no problem, we can add leather trim"

Hey, thanks for your work @SpaceBirb! :)

I've just updated the SpaceX Pack to work with KSP 1.4.2 and thus, I also removed firespitter as a dependency because now in 1.4, the module "ModulePartVariants" lets you apply different textures to one part, go check out some squad configs for fuel tanks or the new parts from the expansion to see how that works.

It would be great if you could drop the firespitter dependency as well and also switch to the stock module, otherwise users will need to install firespitter for this expansion to work.

Also, would it be possible to not replace the original configs, but rather make a module manager patch for the changed parts? I am not too familiar with MM but I think there's gotta be a feature which simply lets you "add" some stuff to an already existing line, you might need to ask someone else or look in the documentation, but that would be great so custom textures  won't need to be inserted into the cfg again. :)

If you have questions how the new stock module works, feel free to ask and I'll help you! (also I've changed some names so be careful when applying your textures!)

Thanks,

KK

This is a good idea. The requirement to overwrite files from SpaceXLaunchVehicles is currently preventing this mod from being indexed in CKAN, because overwriting another mod's files is treated as a conflict. If this does get resolved, please let us know at:

Hey all!

Just updated B5 to V1.3 to add support for v5.2 of the LaunchersPack, and stock module.

However, with your regard

I myself am also puzzled on how this would be possible. I don't see it as not being possible, however I am also inexperienced with MM myself. So if anybody has any suggestions as to how to complete such a task, please let me know!

Thanks!

Can you please make this compatible with KSP 1.2.2. RSS RO?

It is. You just have to use V1.2 of B5 and V5.1 of the launchers pack with firespitter for texture changes.

I have a question: How does this not overwrite the original textures given that the files you say to replace the original ones with are smaller (and therefore can't have all the data in the old textures)?

It may be because of the B5 texture format mainly being formatted in .png, and .dds. Instead of the regular textures being formatted in mainly .dds. Adding png's may compress the file size a bit. Other than that, I'm not too sure. As for the configuration files, they are the same format, and therefore larger. But the size of the textures is smaller because of different formats.

Hello! 



You may be doing a couple of things wrong, installed the wrong version, forgetting a dependency, etc.

First off, if you have KSP 1.4 and up, (1.4,1.4.1,2,3 etc.) you'll need to download B5 V1.3. If you're running KSP 1.3.1 or lower, you'll have to download B5 V1.2, and use firespitter for texture changes.

If you have installed it correctly, you'll have to right click the part that you want to change textures in order to display the texture-changing menu.

If you still have trouble, please let me know!

Hey! Really cool mod, but i have a question, i want to use this in RSS and RO. but the problem is that all the configs i found would add the real fuels, but it would overwrite the textures and have only one texture. if you have some good configs then please provide me some, Thanks!

If you could link me the configs, I (if permitted by the license) will modify them to work for you with the texture pack!

Sorry for the long response.

Hey umm i really liked your mod its really cool I like that you can make block 5 falcon 9's/Falcon Heavy's (I was getting tired of just block 4 boosters)anyways, I was having fun until 1.6 rolled around and suddenly the B5 textures were all gray.Don't know what happened and if it can simply just be repaired with an update or i did something wrong.After all when i downloaded it for the 5th time on SpaceDock i saw it said "Mod outdated use at your own risk." so I kinda believe it can be solved with just a update but about 25% of me thinks i just did something wrong.

Btw tell me when a new update comes out so i can delete the old files and replace them with the new files

Update on JAN/8/2019 : Going to download the files for the 6th time hoping that an unspoken update has already gone online by the time im writing this i have not done it but after this arrow i will -->Ok again haven't loaded up KSP but i moved the B5 folder into the Launchers Pack folder again, after the arrow i have already done it. -->No.. it..it didn't work time to add a new and hopefully updated .Nope all the parts are gray.

Hello Everybody!

 

Just to let you guys know, this mod will be overhauled in the coming weeks, more realistic burnt textures

and octoweb textures will be overhauled and updated aswell. Hopefully I can start making Legs 2.0.

 

Sorry for kinda abandoning this for 6 months, have been busy with school and such.

Thats cool space bir(b)d! Quick question, have you fixed the bug or is it on me XD

 

I think this bug has something to do with KSP 1.6 and not the mod. It could also be something to do with the Launchers Pack mod, as the latest version only officially supports 1.4.5. I have it installed on 1.6.1 and can see that some octoweb textures are grey aswell. It works perfectly in 1.4 & 5. So I'm betting that it has something to do with 1.6. I'll play with the configs a bit to see if that fixes anything! Thanks for letting me know about this!

Nothin feels better than knowing your covered.

ill also do my own work of de-updating KSP to see if it does works; thats how much i wouldn't survive with the mod since block 5 boosters came out XD

oh and cool new profile pic i like that mix of Kurzgesagt and spaceX (i figured it was the DM-1's astronauts clothes lel first second i glanced at it i thought it was a scout of some kind)

and 2nd note, i have the interstage, B5 tank, grid fins and landing legs gray. (if it were just the grid fins or octaweb i wouldn't mind much)

thanks so much for responding
