[1.3.0] Kerbal Engineer Redux 1.1.3.0 (2017-05-28)

Recommended Posts

Hi, KER does not appear in my ships unless I add the part.  How can I change this to be on every ship without having to put the part?

go to the VAB and search for the settings. IIRC, you'll find two panels that control the part and facility upgrade requirement.

Yep, open the settings option in the VAB, and change the option from "Career" to "Partless"

I think there is also a mod Engineer For All or something that adds it to every command module, but I find the setting more convenient and saves me having an extra mod that can go wrong on next KSP version.

Hi everyone, I'm new here and recently began to apply mods to KSP. I finally saw how much Kerbal Engineer was useful to help me design my rockets for complex missions. Sadly, today's update messed it up and KER doesn't work anymore. The game won't be the same without it, hope you'll be able to update it soon enough (before next patch so we can enjoy it a little...).

Welcome to the forums.

You don't mention what versions of KSP and KER you're using.  If you're on KSP 1.3.1, revert to KSP 1.3.0 for the moment if you want to continue to use KER; updating can probably wait a few weeks.  There is some great advice on the forums somewhere about maintaining an older version of KSP in parallel with the latest and greatest (it simply involves copying the KSP directory before updating; this is allowed and encouraged).  This allows to continue your game and until you and the mods you like are ready.  In fact, people also use this technique to play differently modded games at the same time.

Here's some important forum etiquette for you.  What you should not do is pester mod developers for updates.  I know you meant well.  However, they are volunteers who mod in their free time for the benefit the KSP community and all have lives and real jobs not connected to KSP (well, mostly :P).  The vast majority of mod developers will update their mods in due course and the more time they take from that to answer posts such as yours, the less time they have for modding.  Some have even stopped developing when it got too much.

So, please just be patient and check the OP for updates and information every few days (or daily, if you want).

The other possibility is that something else is wrong.  Read this thread and follow its recommendations; you'll get better and faster help when you do.

I'm using 1.3.1, was also using the recent beta. KER has worked fine for me in both cases.

Can someone else please confirm that KER is working as intended in 1.3.1?

I can confirm. Ignore the version checker popup for now.

Suggestion

Many times I've had situations where knowing the RCS Delta V would have been very useful.

 

Is there any chance this can be added Vessel Information in KER?

I didn't copy my 1.3 KSP in time (the computer made the update when I was sleeping), I tried to revert via Steam but it broke everything and I had to take away mods and repair the files with integrity check. I put back some compatible mods and stay that way for the moment.  When the other Mods I use will be updated (if they are before the next update) I'll make sure to copy the game directory to save the compatibility. 

As for these really useful aides that are KER, KIS and KAS, they really should be part of the vanilla game, shame the developers don"t take that into consideration (unless I've missed something, I have yet to catch up with reading the Weekly news) Some of you talk about an upcoming 1.4 version, what will it be about? if anyone could summerise it.  (I know, off topic):rolleyes: That's why I decided to join the forum in the first place, just to be closer to the news.

The good thing is Warp drives still work in 1.3.1 and cost much less than they would in the CTT. So I had fun discovering Warp maneuvers around Jool.:0.0:

Install RCS Build Aid for that. They complement quite nicely.

True, however RCS Build aid does not make updated information available in flight the way KER does and that's what I'm asking about.
