...Am...I...dreaming? Someone pinch me.

A STOCK DELTA-V READOUT! FINALLY! I haven’t even watched the video yet but I’m already SO hyped for 1.6.

EDIT: Video watched. TWR and Isp TOO? Revamped Terrier and revamped-revamped ADTP-2-3?

:0.0::cool:

Bah. Why do you keep implementing useful features everyone will enjoy? One would think you're trying to make this update the best yet.

I, and probably the rest of us, really appreciate the degree to which you all are focusing on community requests in this update. Thank you very much!

No. It will just make KER obsolete. :sticktongue:

Not all of it. KER still has tons of information in it besides dV, Isp and TWR, for example orbital information.

Oh, and a question: @RoverDude @UomoCapra Does the 'extra information' panel showing TWR etc. show in flight as well or just the editor?

Some suggestions:

Old engine flameout effects (seriously, the new are exaggerated)

New water textures (they look like patches (especially on laythe))

One nozzled poodle (please (maybe as variant (at least as make the dual-nozzled one a diffirent part)))

Where was this feature in the early days?

Because:

  • A:  "Trial and error" is fun. 
  • B:  Numbers scare people.
  • C:  It's to hard to beep boop.
  • D:  All of the above.

I don't see how the two-nozzled Poodle is so bad--it makes a lot more sense than the original. While most of the part revamps try to keep to the original spirit of the part, I can see why the Poodle was an exception--it was really unrealistic.

Interesting to see if the deltav thing will work under all circumstances.  For instance, the engine plates from MH still reverse the fuel flow as displayed by the game, and also confuse the Engineers report into thinking they are a decoupler placed upside down.  With issues like that lingering, lets just say my confidence will stay reserved for now.

Great addition for the stock-only users, but KER does far, far more than simply display delta-V (you know, like the Ap and Pe and times to each), and I much prefer its use of HUDs instead of clogging up the staging column, so KER is not going away for me. :)

Having AP and PE during flight doesn't make it harder for new players

So, Kerbal Engineer is still pretty much required to play the game. Also, Kerbal Alarm Clock and Precise Node / Maneuver Editor

Squad really needs to stop being afraid of numbers.  DV is a step in the right direction.  Let's keep it going.

. That's why I want it to be one-nozzled and with the round thing.

Now they have to decrease the thrust of ion engines--for Realism.

Seriosly, "unrealistic". WHY. IT. HAS. TO. BE. REALISTIC?

Suspensions of disbelief. If some looks o works realistic enough. Then you cloud it's okey if it is still a bit off.  

Ions,while really powerfull in ksp, are still really damm weak. So they "feel" like how an ion could behave, while keeping it actually usable in stock.

The poodle design was far away from "kinda realistic", so that's why.

I wouldn't say KSP is totally realistic (if anyone needs an ultra-realistic game, install RO) but the Poodle was unrealistic in comparison with the game's other engines. At least now we're getting semi-realism and a standard style for all of the parts.

Twin-nozzled engine doesn't feel like lander one.

Also they can't release 1.6 before the Ant, Spider, Nerv, Twitch, Reliant, Swivel, Skipper and Mainsail engines are revamped.

But the car doesn't calculate how far I can drive... Wait... Oh...

But... How will I now waste days of my life with try and error or rescue missions?

Choo Choo!

Will there be hooks so a mod can query how much delta-v a ship/stage has?

There already are, according to a few posts I've seen from modders since the new maneuver timer display

No. It's not cheating, like flying the ship for you ;)

Cool! Now I'll only need KER for the orbital info.

Flying the ship for me... Hm...

Somehow this makes me wish they add communication lag to probe control so that you have to preprogramm your maneuvers :D

Or stock life support. I would like to see some more options to make the game harder, comnet was a great improvement to do so :D
