Welll, i mounted the bd mk1 sonar pod on the plane already.

Checking if i installed the wrong version...

No, its bdac v 1.2.3.0

When last I checked sonar does not work from planes to under the water.  Your best bet is to use visual or a boat to detect the sub

Ah i see. So no torpedo bombers for now.

For some reason ai aircraft cant seem to hit anything with fixed ballistic weapons. Every burst seems at least a few degrees off, like its aim is offset somehow. Anyone know how to fix this?

Pitch Ki?

Pitch Ki?

Ive attempted to play with this value. From the lowest it will go, to default, to 20, to some inbetween. Its like any hits that do register are due to luck, as it still aims off of target.

When the value is really high, planes seem sluggish in turning and reacting. When its low they seem to move faster. Regardless of their ki value however, they always seem to be aiming to an offset rather than on target. like theyre aiming 10 meters to the bottom of anything theyre shooting at.

We don't know where @Papa_Joe is....I might need to create a new thread if he doesn't show up .

Sad to here about this, but since ksp v 1.6 is released, might as well start a new thread.

Suggestions: depth bombs with the possibility of determining the depth at which the detonation takes place.

Camera - it can be mounted on a small drone or satellite and the player controlling a different vehicle sees the image from the camera of the drone / satellite in the window similarly as you can see the window of the laser tracking. Useful for observing distant attacks.

Squad of kerbals - a group of armed characters controlled by AI, 3-4 soldiers in the group is enough. They can choose a weapon (rifle, anti-tank launcher, anti-aircraft gun) and issue an order to patrol the area or be controlled by ground-AI.

The part that allows you to recall one nearest squad to your vehicle (plane, ground transporter, naval unit) and transport it to another location.

Question:
What is the defense against torpedo?

Sorry for my noobness.

Don't be sorry...

Currently there are over 7.5 billion people in the world... at MINIMUM 5 billion of those don't even know what a sonar is. :P

BDAc is a Base for ideas and capability. All those are great ideas, some already exist in other mods, and are extremely unlikely to be part of BDAc.

Ok, will keep my 'belligerent' copy un-updated and use my 'peaceful' copy for testing and usage

Yes CIWS works, and you can take out a torpedo with another torpedo :)

Makes me wonder- is BD FPS getting a revive? don't think so, but that and EVAFollower would be cool, yeah.

I think the team said later down the line it would be revived. I think it was spanner who was working on it

The guys tried that before I joined the team... didn't work well at all.

-gps-guided planes in the ai pilot menu.

Like I said before guys, BDAc is a weapons CAPABILITY mod... BDAc provides a weapons capability, and 99.9% of the time an example part... the rest is up to mod makers and BDAc addon creators.

BDAc will never have a massive variety of weapons... usually a single example that shows the functionality.

Xd, there are autopilot mods out there for that kind of stuff :)

Anyone know what did I do wrong here? (ignore the 30 ton bullet mass please.)

The only thing I see weird, is that your bullet name and ammo name are the same...

Try this:

RESOURCE_DEFINITION
{
    name = 88mmAmmo
    title = 88mm Ammo
    abbreviation = 88mm
    density = .0001
    flowMode = ALL_VESSEL
    transfer = PUMP
    isTweakable = true
}
BULLET
{
    name = 88mmBullet
    caliber = 88
    bulletVelocity = 1300
    bulletMass = 30005
    //HE Bullet Values
    explosive = true
    tntMass = 30000
    blastPower = 10000
    blastHeat = 100
    blastRadius = 1000
    apBulletMod = 0
    bulletDragTypeName = None    
}

                                 Then up in the gun, do this:

ammoName = 88mmAmmo
bulletType = 88mmBullet

RESOURCE
    {
     name =88mmAmmo
     amount = 1800
     maxAmount = 1800
    }
}

Not sure if that will fix it, but it's an oddity I have not seen, so I do not know if it's an issue.

Edit:

Nope... don't think that's the problem... I have the bullet type and ammo name the same in my own mod KTech.
