Kerbal Space Program 1.4.3 and Making History 1.2 is live!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

Kerbal Space Program 1.4.3 and Making History 1.2 is live!

This patch includes various improvements and bug fixes for both the base game and the Making History Expansion, as well as localization of the History Pack missions.

Additionally, 3 brand new stock missions have been added for the Making History Expansion: Sally Hut 1, Acapello 13, and Ziggy Kerman and the Spiders from Duna.

This patch also includes a brand new airfield and launchpad, which you’ll be able to use in all game modes as long as you have the expansion installed.

For mission creators, we are adding the capability to place mobile launchpads on the surface of water bodies.

Check out this patch's Changelog for further details:

Some of you may wonder why this release was delayed. During the testing phase we encountered an unexpected issue, which appeared  to involve delicate features such as the Floating Point Origin, Krakensbane and PQSCities. Some veteran players who have followed KSP development closely may recognize these issues, which were patched a while back. Working on these features entails a risk and we’ve faced many challenges on our way to improve upon the complexities of KSP.

Happy launchings!

If no more major issues are discovered after this, I may consider updating to 1.4.

You may have a long wait.  there is no such thing as bug free code... I've been programming for over 30 years... still have not achieved bug free code.....

Is there anything more exhilarating than booting up Steam and seeing that KSP is updating?

Of course there is. But it's tough to think of them while KSP is updating.

I do understand. It is the way I feel about grading final papers this semester. Some idiot (me) didn't pay attention to the calendar for ALL five classes. So guess what idiot decided to have all five classes (that's 197 students) have their final draft due on the SAME day?

Spoiler

Yeah, I'm that idiot. :wacko:

Awesome!

@UomoCapra There's an issue with the x64 1.4 -> 1.4.3 patch. When you download from the link it pulls down the 1.4 -> 1.4.2 patch instead.

Here's what downloads:   KSPx64-Patch-1.4.X-To-1.4.2.exe

Either that or the patch is named incorrectly

Holy crap, is it just me or does this version jack up the frame rate like no one's business?
This game is running smoother than melted butter for me now.

 

I am quite happy. :)

If you have the GeForce Experience app installed you may need to use ctrl+alt+F12 rather than just alt+f12
