[1.7] CommNet Antennas Extension + CommNet Antennas Info (2019-09-09)

Recommended Posts

The Plugin - Commnet Antennas Info was excluded from the parts CommNet Antennas Extension on v2.0.0 (KSP 1.6.0)
The mods will share this thread for a historical reason.

CommNet Antennas Extension

Add 6 new antennas for CommNet:

  • Class 2 direct (5M) — direct comrade for the High Gain Antenna HG-5
  • Class 2+ relay (32M) — exactly what you need for the innerSOI communication 
  • Class 3+ relay (7G) and Class 4+ relay (25G) — more powerful relays for more interesting interplanetary constellations
  • Class 5+ direct and relay (500G) — massive antennas for larger system or for a communication with less powerful antennas, the combinability exponent equals 1.0

the 32M relay assets are taken from the Ven's Stock Revamp (assets are included)
the RemoteTech-redev-antennas (spacedock) it is a dependency, a link in the download section

CommNet Antennas Info

A plugin improves Data Transmitter info panel in the VAB/SPH:

  • shows a combinability exponent (it's different even among the stock antennas)
  • shows modified ratings (if you have changed antennas or DSN power modifiers in the settings)
  • shows all DSN levels (Custom Barn Kit supported, and isn't dependency)
  • shows DSN ratings, hightlights active DSN level, 
  • shows range to Built-in antenna for relays
  • compact version for internal antennas

The same way mod adds exponent and fixes ratings in the PAW.

@flart Very nice little mod, and Good Job. ;)

Uh... just one problem tho, you might want to state whether you, yourself, have specific permssion to use the RT models.
If not, then you, yourself may be in violation of licensing. vOv

Some of the older parts from Remote tech was from AIES aerospace which where all right reserved 

EDIT- RemoteTech was given the right to use them but RemoteTech cant give you the right to use them

@Mecripp, looks like I am ok there:

@carmics did I understand you correctly?

@TaxiService can you say there, what this is part of RemoteTech and I maintain it?
Or even separate RTparts from RTmod on ckan? Then I can make RTparts hard dependency.

Hi, I am not aware of AIES-origin of some RT model assets. I need to contact the people behind them first before I can proceed. This may take some time.

@flart Good news, you have an alternative. We have a separate repository (linky) of stockised RT antennas for RT Redev at the same Gihub site. Users can download it separately (I need to publish downloadable release first) and you may need to provide post-RT MM cfgs for your mod if necessary. This will avoid all or most of license issues, if I am not wrong.

However, there is no plan to publish this repository on ckan until whole RT Redev is completed.

That is on the bottom of page but he still has it

But much like TaxiService has post a patch would do the trick just as good and no worries on license problems

can I include these assets to the mod?
Or did you mean to add a second download link for the RT Redev parts, and to convert my mod to MM-patches + VenAntenna + Plugin? Then I can't load it to ckan or Spacedock...

The latter option. Does it help if I publish the RT-antenna repository to CKAN? It is less or more completed, and it is planned to publish all RT Redev modules (core+optional packages) to CKAN instead of 1 consolidated package.

Yes, it is. Then I can make it a dependency

The package of the antenna parts is uploaded to Spackdock. It should be automatically submitted to CKAN team to be included hopefully.

@TaxiService   

RemoteTech-Antennas into RemoteTech folder? But RemoteTech-Anntennas is not for working with RemoteTech... 

And this can fail

    "conflicts": [
        { "name": "RemoteTech" }
    ],
    "depends": [
    { "name": "RemoteTech-Antennas" }
    ]

 Maybe better GameData\RemoteTech2\RemoteTech-Antennas\ or GameData\RemoteTech-Antennas\ ?

Oops, I didn't realise this naming conflict. I renamed to RemoteTech2 per your suggestion and sent it up SpaceDock and Ckan.

Thanks!

Edit: Turned out it isn't CKAN naming issue. Just odd metadata regex of CKAN on directory. I reverted the new change in SpaceDock and CKAN. It (v0.1) should be in CKAN soon.

Version 0.9.2

  • Added on CKAN
  • Added on Spacedock
  • Patched for separate RemoteTech Redev Antennas — it's dependency, link in the OP.

Thanks for adding more antennas to the base game.....even if you borrowed them from Evil RemoteTech! ;)

For some reason none of the antennas phone home after I leave the sphere of influence of Kebal. I have 4 25M rlay dishes on the way to Duna with a relay network around Kerbal and they lost connection as soon as they left. I have the dependency. Any idea what could be wrong?

Coatl aerospace has weird programming. It seems once it detects remotetech folder(even with only antenna model) it disables its antenna function. So  commnet antenna extension is not compatible with coatl aerospace until coatl lad patched it.

@TaxiService, it looks like a problem about placing parts into "RemoteTech" folder. It's about MM-patches now.

@PART[part]:NEEDS[RemoteTech]

is triggered by RemoteTech-Annennas.
Maybe place them into "RemoteTech-Antennas"?

Yah, I don't know MM does this too. I already renamed the main folder to 'RemoteTechRedev' and pushed the new update to Spacedock and CKAN (linky).

@ssd21345, can you please update to the latest version and check?

it's fixed, thanks you!

(version file still marked as 1.0 rather than 1.1)

Version 0.9.5

  • check working with updated RemoteTechRedevAntennas 0.1.1
  • add MM to archive
  • update desc


Version 1.0.0

  • recompiled plugin for KSP 1.5.0
  • update MM to v3.1.0
  • Russian localization

 

@TaxiService , on your .version file you still have VERSION 0.1, so last 0.1.1 unavailable on SCAN for KSP > 1.3.0. Also, can you make KSP_VERSION_MAX something like 1.99.99, for no needs further updating ?

My bad, I forgot to replace the version file when I repackaged my mod. Thanks for noticing this. I am stealthily overwriting the release files.

Also, I bump max ksp version to "infinite" per suggested. Very unlikely to update often and big.

Seems like the C5+ Relaytech One antenna is incorrectly assigned to be direct instead of relay.
