@Daniel Prates

I've changed the NETKan file so that FAR isn't a dependency

@linuxgurugamerplease investigate the history of things before you change them. This was added because people were having problems without FAR with the current fork:

https://github.com/KSP-CKAN/NetKAN/pull/8259

The OP is not up to date because it isn't owned by the current maintainer (because nobody took me up on the suggestion of organizing this mod's de facto "team" properly).

Since there have been no announcements or updates that this problem was fixed on the mod side of things, I'm going to go ahead and revert this CKAN change now before those problems return.

Oh sorry.  I was going on the recent comments that FAR wasn't a dependency

 

Maybe it's ripe for an adoption?  I will look into creating the organization you suggested

is there anyway to bypass that?

 

Yes there is a hard coded value in the DLL for the min thickness and the increments. @linuxgurugamer is getting us reorganised so it could possibly be something that is looked at.

So FAR isn't a hard dependancy, if FAR is detected then the voxel approach is used for lift calculation. However, without FAR the mod should work fine and will use a surface area calculation to work out the lift generated (I relatively simple bit of math). But the mod should work with or without FAR however, without FAR you cannot set the wing weight/strength (this feature does require FAR.

No, b9pw will calculate the aerodynamic values such as span, swept, chord from geometry then them pass to FAR. There is no voxel approach.
