Looking for someone to help me making a MM patch to surface scanner


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm looking for someone to help me make patch to stock surface scanner ( I want to make it able to show abundance of ModularKolonizationSystem resources on asteroids )

In spoiler down there you can see my try to make it but it is not working.

Spoiler

@PART[SurfaceScanner]
{
    MODULE
    {
        name=ModuleAnalysisResource
        resourceName = Water
    }

    MODULE
    {
        name=ModuleAnalysisResource
        resourceName = MetallicOre
    }

    MODULE
    {
        name = ModuleAnalysisResource
        resourceName = Substrate
    }

    MODULE
    {
        name = ModuleAnalysisResource
        resourceName = Minerals
    }

    MODULE
    {
        name = ModuleAnalysisResource
        resourceName = Karbonite
    }

    MODULE
    {
        name = ModuleAnalysisResource
        resourceName = Karborundum
    }    
    
    MODULE
    {
        name = ModuleAnalysisResource
        resourceName = Uraninite
    }

    MODULE
    {
        name = ModuleAnalysisResource
        resourceName = XenonGas
    }

    MODULE
    {
        name = ModuleAnalysisResource
        resourceName = ArgonGas
    }
}

It is easy to get confused between the scanners.

Your issue maybe that you are adding one functionality to the wrong part but not using it right!

You are modifying SurfaceScanner.

@PART[SurfaceScanner]
    {    MODULE
            {    name = ModuleResourceScanner
                ScannerType = 0
                ResourceName = HydrateOre
                MaxAbundanceAltitude = 1000
                RequiresUnlock = false
            } etc.

which would be different from the SurveyScanner

@PART[SurveyScanner]
    {    MODULE 
            {    name = ModuleAnalysisResource
                resourceName = HydrateOre
            } etc.

Note the OrbitalScaner  is same same but different.

@PART[OrbitalScanner]
    {    MODULE
            {    name = ModuleResourceScanner
                MaxAbundanceAltitude = 500000
                RequiresUnlock = true
                ScannerType = 0
                ResourceName = HydrateOre
            } etc.

 

Peace.

Peace.

Its not the reason. The surface scanner shows abundance on planets but on asteroid it only shows that its asteroid and no more. I tried using moduleanalysisresource because on KSP wiki is written, that it shows the abundance sended from ModuleAsteroidAnalysis.

MKS asteroid scanner has been broken forever (either due to, or regardless to the presence of an empty config file) for as far as I know. Your best bet is to ask in the MKS thread and see if the status has changed on that.
