SQUAD

A KSP Loading... Preview: Helmet Removal

Recommended Posts

Kerbals will be able to remove their Helmets and their neck rings in Update 1.6. Just remember they need Oxygen to survive, too!

Am  I seeing this right. Halleluja.  A miracle has happend.  Really cool feature.


But please don't just overlook that the poodle still doesn't look like the best version of itself.

That is great! The ability to separately toggle the neck ring is very nice and useful for storytelling/machinima stuff.

@SQUAD This is a small but significant and welcome change! Thank you for listening to the player requests for this feature! Well done!

It would be extremely helpful if the death by vacuum feature could be overridden by a mod for certain story purposes. Some like to make sets out of parts that look like the interior of a spacecraft. Just ask @JustJim about that.. :)

Ooh, this is super cool! I have a mechanics question, though: when kerbals run out of oxygen, is there/can we have some sort of early warning? Like with g-force, there's an orange warning about "x kerman is nearing g-force limits" before they pass out from the g-force and you get the red message that 'x has passed out from g-forces'

That would be nice also.

Just a thought, could we have it programmed that on EVA they could remove their helmets on the mun but only within a closed cargo bay... utilising the same mechanic that hides parts from aerodynamic forces?

Then part mods that have domes or whatnot could add the module to their parts, allowing for 'short sleeved' environments to be built.

Peace.

But can I safely kill my kerbals by removing their helmets on Eve? 

Safety in killing kerbals is our number one priority.

Something like this would be great to have.. a module that defines boundaries in which shirtsleeve environment lets you remove the helmet and collar. Optionally the ability to disable the death penalty or the ability for mods to override that feature.

Yea, I had wondered about using the cargo bay module before, with TR but it seemed beyond scope of the mod at the time.  That way we can dock in a Mk3 cargo bay, then close the pod bay doors:) and exit the craft.  When MechJeb opens the cargo bay door, poof goes the kerbal.

Surely this then would be an easy tweak to make before 1.6 :) Hint @SQUAD?

Wonderful feature!

First step to having life support features in the game? Maybe...

They are hard to read, but are dV numbers for each stage. Though, I feel like I've seen that idea somewhere...

@DMagic I think the previous comment is merely pointing out the presence of a mod (much less, one of yours) in Squad's little animation. ;)

Oh wait. Is that yours? The icon looks different.

@JadeOfMaar Definitely not a mod. Inserting the bars into the stage readout like they are in the video is a little more complicated than how I'm doing it. And no one else has a dV display mod like that.
