A "KSP Loading..." Preview: Parachutes in KSP Enhanced Edition

Recommended Posts

KSP Enhanced Edition is getting a substantial update fairly soon, and with it, console players will be able to deploy fully steerable personal parachutes, along with a number of other things that we will be revealing along the way. Stay tuned!

I don't play KSP on console, but it's good that console players are getting some attention with a big update :D

I got my hopes up that 1.7 will finally beautify the Parachutes, but Console getting a confirmed update is also nice

So consoles are getting 1.4? That implies Making History, as well.

Not exactly. This will be a console-optimized update that will take bits and pieces of all updates we have released after 1.2.1.  Due to the platform's differences and complexities, there always will be differences between the PC and console versions.

I'd like to think that adding parts is the easiest part of the update. Hopefully this includes the new textures as well. The only parts I see as being a challenge are the engine plates due to the code behind them. 

I'd also like to see consoles put on an update schedule. I don't expect every 3 months like pc, but some commitment from squad would be nice.

I think it's really great to see a continued commitment to the console releases, thanks for keeping us up to date!

Are we also getting the "To Vee" feature? I feel like that is one of the most important features we need on consoles, especially because we cannot install a mod such as Mech Jeb to do the calculations.

Also, on console the belta V is MANDATORY to do anything. We need it. Thanks

It really isn't, I mean I can easily send rockets to orbit without having KER or other mods (because on console you obviously can't download and install mods), but if it helps players then I'm all for it too

It helps with sizing a craft. I'm horrible about bringing enough fuel for missions beyond the kerbin system, and a delta v readout helps.

Also, its a feature on pc, so I would like to see it brought to consoles.

It definitely would help players and for orbiting kerbin, I can do that. It's missions to duna, or even mun that you need to see what your Delta V is.

See 

 For a way to easily build a rocket with whatever dV you need (no mods or calculator needed).

Can you confirm a specific month on which the update will be most likely released?

One idea (that would allow console to have parts and planet mods) is a modhub like in Fallout 4 on console, in The Elder Scrolls 5 on console, and in Farming Simulator 17 and 19 on console.

I have been waiting since month 2 after KSP Enhanced edition's release for update info, this is why I would like to know so badly.

Also are you giving the Making History DLC to the original players on Enhanced Edition, or are we all getting it for free?
