[KSP ANY] Orbital Colony - Civilian Population Assets standalone

Recommended Posts

Forum user @RealGecko left a while ago and turned this mod over to me.  Original thread is here: https://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/166775-ksp

It's been updated for 1.6.1

Once I received a tourism contract that required to build a space hotel capable of holding up to 50 kerbals... 50 KAAAARL!

I started to try various superb station parts pack, but was not satisfied by any of them, as none contained parts that were capable of holding at least 25 kerbals in one part. And also none looked like "hotel" (of course, these are space station parts ).

The only mod that looked close to what I wanted was "struggling to survive" Civilian Population. And even though Civilian Population is cool I personally wanted to have it's parts with stock only functionality. That's how I created Orbital Structures.

Contains Apartments, Administration Deck, Science Deck, Biosphere Gardens and some structural Elements.

I love this mod, but does anyone have any ideas how to get the really big spherical garden into orbit? I'm having "difficulties" and would like to benchmark someone else's best practices, if possible.

I am trying to cut down on the number of mods I've amassed as I crank up for a 1.6.1. game.

@linuxgurugamer, you are NOT HELPING! :sticktongue:

Seriously, tho... thanks for picking this up with an eye towards those hotel contracts.  I tried building a hotel prototype, but wasn't happy with the looks of it.

Personally, I'd probably be using EL.  Build in orbit, just launch the materials.  (Likely in multiple launches...)

It's one giant piece that I can't "build in orbit". Has anyone actually launched one into orbit, either alone or attached to other colony bits??

Without seeing the particular part myself (neighbourhood is without power at the moment), I would suggest to use the Kerbal Standard Operating Procedure of using MOAR BOOSTERS :)

I know I've built it at least once with Extraplanetary Launchpads in the past.  So you can build in orbit.  (And I don't think I’d ever actually try to launch it.)

But other than that, yeah: MOAR BOOSTERS.  ;)

I'm not sure if the whitelist is working.  None of the biosphere/greenhouses show up for me?  Do they require an LS mod?  I haven't reinstalled USI-LS yet.

If you arent running ReStock, the whitelist doesn’t do anything

if you are, please provide a log file

I've found them under the life support tab.  Not sure if they were there prior to reinstalling USI-LS.  Where I didn't find them was after using Janitor's Closet to limit to Orbital Colony only and clicking on the search bar, which should cause all parts in the mod to appear, but a few mods seem to lose pieces this way, and I cannot explain why.

Does anyone have a MM patch for it to work with USI Habitat and Greenhouse?

Is anyone else who uses these parts having any issue with the Netherdyne University?

When I feed it science experiments I don't get a Total Data/Max Data or any projected science increase, but I do have the yellow button with +0 at the bottom.

Tested it at the end of the stream on the launchpad, first trying a mk2 science lab, then the netherdyne university.

I happen to already have a current output and KSP log from reporting another bug earlier, so please disregard the screenshots - the logs can be found here via Filebin

Hello,

Does this mod work with "USI Life Support" or "USI MKS"?

It uses old patches for the greenhouses, but I think they will still work.  Unfortunately the living spaces don't appear to have patches for the habitation parts of USI-LS.  So, it will work, but it won't work to extend the available hab time for your Kerbals other than simply the seats in each part.

OK, thank you.

Would you find any benefit if I add a config, disabled by default, for USI Life Support and Snacks?  I think people might like having massive orbital greenhouses.

Awesome, I'll page you when it's done-ish (probably Wednesday morning).
