Play KSP and use Raspberry Pi 3 to Display Data?

Recommended Posts

I'm currently looking for a way to read information from KSP (ingame) on my main pc and use a Raspberry Pi 3 to display the information.

My main pc will play the game and I want to use my raspberry pi with 7-Segment display.

I just need a way to transfer data from my pc to the pi or even simpler just aquire the data, from there I can code the Pi 3 & 7-Segment Display by myself.

So how can I read information like the height, velocity etc...?

I have a good portion of programming expierence in Python, C++ & Web but some to none expierence with C# which is needed for KSP.

I've never used it myself, so take this with a grain of salt, but I believe there's already a mod to do just that, called Telemachus.

No idea if it's still a going concern and/or what functionality it provides, but that would probably be a good place to start.

A non-exhaustive list of mods that can help:

Telemachus can send telemetry over a websocket.

kRPC provides telemetry and full RPC control over a protobuf interface. It has Python and C++ client libraries, amongst others.

KSPSerialIO and Kerbal Simpit can also be used to get telemetry out of the game, but both are limited to serial ports only. I like them (obviously), but they may not be the best choice if you're building a Pi-based interface.
