[1.4.x] BDArmory Continued v1.2.2.2a [8/8/2018] + Vessel Mover, Camera Tools, BDMk22, Destruction Effects, Burn Together

Recommended Posts

Question for the BDA team: I'm using a custom compile of the BDA plugin for the BAD-T tourney I'm running at the moment that:
-Adds ammo gauges that toggle off if infinite ammo is enabled
-Adds ammo empty alerts that also respect Infinite ammo
-Implements apBulletMod for additional/reduced bullet armor penetration
-Makes heat gauge persistent when switching vessels - if a weapon is overheated and you switch vessels, then switch back, the overheated weapon will still have heat gauge
-Changes bullet rendering from tracers and slightly less bright tracers to tracers and non-tracers

Since I'm uncertain regarding your feelings on unsolicited Pull Requests from non-BDA devs, are some/all above things you'd be interested in and want a PR from my fork of the code?

What version of KSP? What version of BDAc? Is clearance check enabled? How fast are you flying? There are a lot of variables here that need answered before an adequate answer can be given.

Hi all,

I just released a new version of CameraTools recompiled for KSP 1.5.1. You can find it here:

Hi @SuicidalInsanity improvements are always welcome, If you do a PR in Dev branch we will review the code to see wheter it make sense to integrate it or not.

Thanks

Since this is Papa joe's thread I guess this would be the right place to post this request...?

While I think the rather recent change in BDAs damage System (Heat to HP) is great, with having bullets penetrating armor instead of destroying it immediately, resulting in the destruction of interior parts, I feel like its just not properly balanced. Most parts have such a huge health bar, it's hard to do any damage, especially with "older" weapons in e.g. the Skyers part pack mod. the BDA "stock" options, Vulcan and Gau negate this a bit by heaving really high RPMs but the BDA 50.Cal, for Example, needs 30ish hits to destroy a wing. In real life air combat often a single bullet from an autocannon like the German MK 108 or 103 (featured in Skyers PP) was able to obliterate a Plane (in BDA KSP it would make sense for it to take more bullets: gameplay reasons). And even a machine gun could take a plane down quickly if it scored hits on either pilot, engine or control surfaces. What I'm trying to say is that it would be great if the current damage system were to be complemented with negative effects on different parts when they get damaged e.g.: engines losing power or shutting down at a specific HP percentage, a chance to kill the pilot or the AI if the cockpit gets hit, wings getting less G-force tolerant and/or breaking off..... I think you get the point. As I have absolutely no experience in coding and scripting (I even wouldn´t know the difference at gunpoint) I don´t know how hard this feature is to implement? But I´d just love to see it. I think especially air battles with WW2 to 50ies - 60ies planes would really profit from these changes (more doggyfighting, no or few guided missiles).

I´d like to thank BDA and its plugins authors for stealing hundreds of hours of my lifetime (is it of my lifetime or off my lifetime?) and wish them good luck for continuously developing BDA to one of the greatest KSP mods and communities.

Can someone please comment on this or refer me to the proper forum or github.

English is not my native language in I apologize for any misspelliation (sic!)

@Esesel, one partial solution is to open the BDArmory settings.cfg, and change the "DMG_MULTIPLIER" from 100 to between 750-1000. It will increase the damage by a factor of around 7.5 to 10, which appears to be realistic.

Im having an issue in regard to the hitpoint system. When I build my plane in the hanger the wings have 9000hp but when I spawn the plane on the runway the hp changes to 1000. I have BDA 1.2.2.2, PRE 1.7, and MM 3.1.1. Im also running on KSP 1.4.5.

1. You have to use MM v 3.0.7, check PRE version for the ksp v 1.4.5 compatible one.

2. The hitpoint bug is known on github, but thank you for trying to ooint this out.

It has been already fixed for the next release :)

I have a problem regarding rocket launcher turrets. How to set the rockets themselves to fire at 1600 RPM by default? I tried messing with the .cfg, but nothing happens.

I have a question. Does bullet air burst work in the latest addition to BDAc?

Seems...no? I fired a missile and shot it down with a omillennium. The shots missed did not explode at proximity. @jrodriguez

I personally don't understand the logic behind EMPs since it more or less would disable the aircraft entirely, but all in all, I do appreciate that someone's keeping Bahamuto's stuff alive now that he's left to make his own game.

It is based on real life emp, which disables all electronic equipment.

Aka, a computer controlled aircraft.
