Welcome To Kerbal Academy's Developement Thread

(Marketing)

Kerbal Academy is a contract pack consisting of training mission scenarios for educating your Kerbals.

These missions are intended to provide in-field training experience to kerbonauts, advancing their skills for use on future missions. Each Kerbal Academy contract awards the trainee being trained experience when a specified mission task is completed.

Are you tired of your Kerbals not being able to reach the highest levels without planting a flag on Duna? Ever wondered how planting a flag on Minmus shows your engineers how to fix wheels? Enroll your Kerbonauts in the Kerbal Academy today! We provide  logical and simpler Kerbal experience progression contracts for a better training experience!  (Kerbal Academy is NOT liable for any injuries or rapid unplanned disassembles during missions)\

New Light Training Aircraft for use in the Pilot Basic Training

If you want to check it and other crafts out, go look at the Version 1.3.0 branch on the github.

Testing the "Entry Level Pilot Training" contract would also be helpful

JGB3aUC.png

 

Btw the aircraft does not need SAS to fly and can get up to 300 m/s at 2 km altitude. Check out the action groups too. Plane is also capable of landing on and taking off the island runway (for obvious reasons) and can land on but not take off from water.

Can we already do some tests with the contracts as well or do you want to finish your own tests first?

Anything posted on the 1.3 Branch is technically "released" in a beta state for testing. I would like to mention that that stuff is about the get replaced and updated in about 1 hour, so maybe hold off. =P

Atmospheric Pilot training contracts updated after testing again. Out of testing for time being.

Continuing work on Orbital Pilot Training CFGs.

Plane updated to fly a bit better. keep speed at 90 -120 m/s for best handling. Work continuing

So, I've tried the 'Entry Level Atmospheric Piloting Course' and I've found some bugs:

Pilot Level 1: Val
Pilot Level 0: Jeb

I need both of them on board but if I put just one of them into my plane, both of them get a check mark in the contract (but the step of this contract keeps unchecked):

Screen:
 

Spoiler

qdsQLH8.png

If you fly the mission anyway, get all the waypoints, land and recover the vessel, the waypoints are saved as 'checked', so you can start the plane again, this time with Val and Jeb on board and everything will be finished except for the landing (vessel situation is 'prelaunch' instead of 'landed'). Starting the engines, roll ~5m and this step will be checked as well and the contract is sucessfully finished.

Speaking of the finished contract: This will cause a NRE. (Jeb got his level up anyway).

Whole output_log: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9fvwjudmvv9kuc5/output_log.txt?dl=0

The names of the waypoints are irritating, caused by the first waypoint, called 'starting point' (but the contract says 'first waypoint'). After flying past the 'starting point', the next available waypoint is named 'first marker' which is irritating. Next will be the 'second waypint' but the 'third marker', and so on.
Also, waypoints doesn't disappear after getting past them (and they keep beeing active for navigation) until the next waypoint is reached.
I've also notived, that the waypoints are created at random altitudes (intended) but since there is no altitude requirement mentioned in the contract description, you can fly below or above a waypoint without getting a contract update.

 

Oh, almost forgot it: The agent flag is missing in game (just a white quare).

Guess thats all for today^^

edit: Apparently, both kerbals get a checkmark for beeing 'on board' even though none of them is in the plane. (Used Bob this time)

@4x4cheesecake

Ok... Guess that means I'm going to need to separate the parameters for HasCrew. As for that NRE, There is probably an extra "disableOnStateChange" or "HideOnStateChange" floating around. Ill look, might have gotten it by now. 

The white flag was caused by a messed up agency cfg. That has been fixed so if you want to copy over all of the 1.3.0 branch and put in a folder named "KerbalAcademy" in the contract group folder, everything should work. You can also wait for the "Pilot Contracts Beta" release sometime today or tomorrow. =P

Quick update on fixing what @4x4cheesecake found

-Fixed waypoint naming, makes more sense now. 

-All crew now have to be on board before that parameter completes, now each kerbal has a personal parameter

-Still investigating NRE, looks like its just CC having a little freak out. Ill check for unused parameters in entry level anyway but havent seen anything.

-As for the explanation as to the the waypoint heights, this is why i suggest getting waypoint manager. It shows the waypoints in flight mode on your HUD. Makes life easy.

-Any weirdness about descriptions or parameter things will be sorted out when 1.3.0 gets released. :P currently just want to get everything running correctly as intended.

So, I've loaded your latest branch and did the 'Intermediate Level Atmospheric Piloting Course'.

-First of all: As soon as the game loads and reaches the main menu, I'm getting several 'ArgumentExceptions' caused by ContractConfigurator (line 25282 and below in the log)

-Unfortunately, the Kerbals are still not recognised correctly. I need to do the contract with Val, but putting Jeb in my plane will bring up a checkmark for Val beeing on board (screen). Even worst: Val is regocnised in the first step of the contract, but NOT for the landing step so it is impossible to finish the contract (screen).

-It is still possible to fly through all the waypoints with another pilot to get the contract updates for the correct pilot. Maybe this is a stock problem, because you can already do the same trick with mining contracts. Anyway, it is NOT possible to do this trick with the 'Practice Flying At Various Altitudes And Speeds' steps, so if this is not a stock problem, you may be able to find a solution by comparing these steps.

-'ArgumentOutOfRangeException' as soon as 'Practice Flying At Various Altitudes And Speeds' is done (line 51099 in the log).

And this folks is why you get other people to test your stuff. 

Ok Ill have a look. =/

Edit; Ah ok. I know what I did. For the Val not registering problem, there is a hidden parameter that checks that you are "landed"  , given that your engines are not on, im gonna guess that your state was actually "PRELAUNCH" parameter will check for that next update. (and ill add a note to that parameter at somepoint.) 

@4x4cheesecake looks like the errors were caused by the Adv Orbital Piloting Contract. Not surprising since its still be worked on. Phew.

On the bright site: Every bug you can fix now is a bug you can prevent in any further contract ;)

edit:
@Mark Kerbin I can confirm, removing the adv. orbital piloting contract will no longer cause any errors during start up.

Contract is being worked on, main issue was calling the target body which was not quite working the way it should.

Edit; unfortunately due to my own inexperience and the way some of the contract list work, this version is not going to be compatible with any mod that shifts the sizes of kerbin. I suppose if people ask i can make a RSS version after 1.3.0

I just want to point out that at this time, all the craft files are just compatible with KSP 1.4.4. This can be changed by editing the version number in the craft file.
Should be fine to change the version number to 1.4.0 so the crafts will be compatible with all 1.4.x versions (tested for 1.4.3).

Thats the point ;) You can load any old craft file into a new KSP but not the other way around and without the changes I did to the craft files, my KSP refused to load the craft files and even ask me to delete them.

Apologizes for the radio silence recently folks! Not to worry, Im still working, just needed to chill a bit. 

A quick update as to what im currently doing;

All pilot contracts (except bootcamp) are "finished" ie on the github and ready to be tested. They are unbalanced and still need their descriptions improved and notes added. Also cost and difficulty will have to be looked at. So no really not finished. Lets call them "working"

As for the bootcamp, all is coming along nicely, tho I have hit a "small" snag with finding the kerbals name. However I think i will just be spawning one of the kerbals already in the "applicant" section, instead of entirely new one. This will hopefully fix the trainee name issue and make it so there are not infinite pilots always ready for training. 

Anyhow... Its like 10 pm so ill be signing off now.

 

Oh and scientist and engineer contracts will be easier/ quicker(?) given the lack of waypoints and orbital parameters. Plus the wonders of Ctrl+c :P

Sorry for the delay with the Pilot contract prerelease. Dealing with an issue in the bootcamp contract. 

 

Edit literally 2 seconds after posting: NVM that, apparently its working now. Strange.

Good news, if all continues going to plan, I should be able to post a pre release for 1.3’s pilot contracts sometime tomorrow. Had to make some sacrifices with my plans for the Bootcamp senario but it isn’t too bad. Let’s just say the island runway isn’t getting as much attention.

Oh and all the contracts have much nicer numbers now. Yay for 0s
