[1.7.x] BDArmory Continued v1.3.0 [05/01/2019]

Recommended Posts

I have created a fresh new Topic to maintain BDAc continuity.  For any past forum posts please refer to the Old BDAcTopic here:

The old BDAc Forum Topic has been locked by the topic owner.

Please note that Physics Range Extender and Module Manager are required dependencies for BD Armory Continued

Also be advised that using the World Stabilizer mod will cause problems with PRE as it has it's own world stabilization code we refer to as Black Spell ... Only solution to this is to not use the World Stabilizer mod

See spoilers below for release notes, videos, Github issues and download links

The BDAc family of mods were all created by @BahamutoD, and in his absence, we have taken it upon ourselves to keep the explosions flowing

For anything related to BDAc or mods in the BDAc family, I refer you to the Github link for Papa Joe's Soup (Slightly Over Used Parts) where there is listed download links for the mods in question ... If you have questions or concerns, feel free to post here and the team will do our best to assist you

I also refer you to our in game KSPedia where you will find a wealth of information on the operation of BDAc

Be aware that forcing opengl will result in many shaders showing as pink ... the only solution is DO NOT force opengl

If you think you have come across a gremlin or a bug with BDAc or any of the mods we maintain, feel free to post here, however we ask that you also take a look at the issues list on Github to see if your problem has been addressed. We use the built in Github issues tracker to keep record of bugs, enhancements and feature requests as it is difficult to keep track of bug reports and all the great ideas that the community have come up with on the forum (things can get buried and lost under newer posts)

Please note that only the most recent version of BDAc is supported at this time and that BDA needs PhysicsRangeExtender to work properly: https://github.com/jrodrigv/PhysicsRangeExtender/releases

Also, to correctly install BDAc, first download the latest release from the BDAc releases link posted below (not the source download) and then extract the BDArmory folder contained within the zip file and place it into your KSP/Gamedata folder ... Do not, I repeat, do not place the Gamedata folder contained within the BDAc zip into your Gamedata folder as this will cause umpteen million conflicts to arise as the BahaTurret pickle looks for textures, configs and whatnot in specific places

In regards to support, KSP.log please  (Found in the same directory as the KSP executable ... this file is overwritten each time you start KSP ... upload this file to a filesharing site such as dropbox and post the link so the team can take a look) ... I also refer you to the following thread where it describes in detail everything else that is required for us to help you:

  * Improved sub categories for BDA parts.  This helps with the clutter in the Editor under the BDA category.
  * Removed BDACategoryModule as a result of the BDA categories refactor.  
    Existing craft may see a module not found warnings in the log.  This will have no ill effects and can be safely ignored.
  * Improved smoke effects for smoke canister launchers
  * Added new Jet engine based on the J-404.  Licensed from KTech. (Thanks @TheKurgan, @SpannerMonkey(SMCE) & @XOC2008!)
  * Added new BDAc Test Drone MKIII craft, utilizing the new engine.

  * Bullet trajectories and Pilot AI should no longer be affected by vessel movement and vessel switching


v1.0.0

* NEW FEATURES:

  * Radar & Stealth, re-design of how the radar system works:
    - New radar reflection shader (credit: original great idea by JR!), calculating cross section in m^2:
       + allows building for stealth using angled surfaces (“scatter those pesky radar waves away!”)
       + calculation is normalized so that a 1x1 structural plate directly frontally facing the radar yields a return of exactly 1 m^2
    - Redesign of the radar system, radars all have different ranges & detection performance:
       + radar part configs changed, new fields (floatcurves) to define detection and lock/track performance, new field to specify ground clutter effectiveness
    - New in-editor analysis window to help evaluate a craft’s cross section and performance against selectable radars
    - New options for configuration of radar guided missiles in the part config:
       + can now explicitly specify active seeker performance (via a FloatCurve, similar to radars)
       + can now explicitly specify the static radar cross section of a missile for detection purpose
    - Adjustment of the Chaff countermeasure system: more gradual effect of decoying missiles away (instead of previous “all-or-nothing”)
    - Adjustment of IR missiles and flare countermeasures: simulating now more of a “imaging infrared” seeker than an old dumb seeker – to be successfully decoyed, flares have to more closely match the thermal spectrum of the part the seeker has locked on to

  * Massive improvements to ballistic missile guidance and modular missiles, ability to simulate ICBM flight paths:
    - Ballistic guidance has been enhanced to allow firing missiles accurately even at distances greater than 500 km
    - A new field called BallisticOverShootFactor has been added to missiles, the greater the value the further the missile will go before the terminal maneuver begins
    - By default all missiles now can steer in vacuum. New field called "vacuumSteerable" can be set to false to disable this behaviour    
    - Auto SAS activation when the missile is fired. Before it was only activated if the parent vessel had it switched on.
    - Improved the Cruise and Ballistic Guidance. Ballistic Guidance will switch to AGM guidance as soon as it reached the 50% of the distance
    - Guard mode in space will consider orbiting vessels as "flying" (air targets), hence engagement of space targets is possible now
 
  * New dedicated sonar ping and torpedo ping sounds, courtesy of PapaJoe!

* FIXES / ENHANCEMENTS:

  * Localization updates, including chinese localization (thanks @ACEA)
  * Fixed indestructible Kerbals - weapons/explosions have effect on Kerbals again! (thanks @Designer225)
  * Fixed AIPilot problem with drag estimations (thanks @RichardDastardly)
  * Fix missile infinite fuel
  * Fix rwr window invisible in fresh installs
  * Display ranges of RWR and radar display now linked, selectable display range of radar display up to configured PRE physics max range!
  * Window position saving also for vesselswitcher
  * Prevent active radar missiles locking onto anything they see, now obey engagement settings
  * Sonar pings and torpedos only show on RWR if vessel is splashed/submerged
  * Fix guard mode "cheating" - now must have detected an enemy with radar/sonar or with visual range before it can attack it
  * If a cruise missile has terminal guidance, it can be switched off (before launch) in the part action window. The missile will then be purely gps guided without engaging its terminal targeting mode
  * If debug labels are enabled, upon entering the editor all bda parts & their properties (if relevant for balancing) are dumped into .csv files for convenient analysis in excel
  * Complete review of all event handlers, should reduce some actual or potential nullrefs upon explosive vessel disassembly
  * General performance improvements due to code refactoring

v0.3.0.0

* New DLL Changes - Full reinstall required!
* BDArmory Core : modularization of systems and features to ease integration for other mod makers
* Performance refactor and garbage collection improvements for better memory utilization

    * weaponClass.SLW is set by missileType torpedo or depthcharge

    * New "Sonar" Implementation - If RWRThreatTypes is Sonar will not detect flying vessels, only surface ships and submersibles

    * MAX_ACTIVE_RADAR_RANGE & MAX_ENGAGEMENT_RANGE added to settings.cfg for more control over ranged combat

    * Updated checks for Landed and Splashed to be more accurate and account for sumbersibles

    * Renamed "Ground" engagement option to "Surface" to better reflect behavior

    * MM Patches updated for engagement options and torpedo types

    * Issue Reference #201 for Sonar, RWR Types, engagement Types, torpedo targeting

    * Increased Radar Range #170

    * Logic for Smart Targeting should correct #216 

    * fixing issue with throttle mirroring when switching vessels

    * adding gaurd mode back to editor, Solves #156
    
    * Ballistic Missile guidance improvements
    
    * Terminal Guidance will switch back to GPS target if no radar target is found
    
    
* New Parts

    * Courtesy of SpannerMonkey 
        - BDA MK1 Sonar Pod
        - Sting Ray  BDA LightWeight Torpedo
        
* Notes on Naval Combat Features

    * Current implementation of "Sonar" reuses the current Radar code. Future state will have dedicated windows and naming convention
    * Activating a "Sonar" pod still says "Activate Radar"
    * A Sonar is defined by setting the rwrThreatType = 6
        - Sonar rules
            - Will only detect vessels that are underwater (> 20meters)
            - Sonar will not function if vessel is in flight
            - Sonar does not detect "Landed" vessels, only splashed
            - Normal Radar does not detect underwater vessels, still detects "Splashed" i.e. Boats
    * Engagment type "SLW" only targets underwater (submarines) and Splashed (Boats)

Hey guys, the new weapon grouping option is nice, but how to set up the AI so it won't fire each weapon independently, but only fire the groups? I merged 2 different 12.7mm into group and it iterates over each of the independently and also the MG group. Can I somehow disable the two weapons and allow only the MG group?

I think this is a question for @SuicidalInsanity

From what you've said, it sounds like you didn't add all weapons to the group; adding a weapon to a custom group doesn't mirror across symmetry, any symmetrically placed weapons will also need to be individually added to the group. You can double check what group a weapon is in by right-clicking on it, the top of the part GUI window should say Weapon Name [weapon's name/group], if some still say the weapon's original name, those weapons didn't make it into the group and the AI is seeing them as a separate weapon to add to the Weapon Manager list.

do the modular missile parts work in KSP 1.7 or do they need an update?

I will do a new release to increase the version of the file for compatibility with CKAN. But actually it works fine :)

This has probably been asked before but I could not find it.  Does firing interval effect guns?  I know it makes missiles fire at a rate of 1 every firing interval seconds.  Does it work the same with guns?

Anyone having issues with the modular missiles? I am using FAR. My issue is the missile go into a unrecoverable spin about 5 seconds after launch. The weirdest part is this only happens when they are launched from a plane. When I launched off a SAM the missile controlled fine even if they miss they don't spin out. The missiles I made are modeled after real missiles namely the aim-7E and aim-9E. They are going around mach 2 with Q at 200-300 kpa altitude 1-3km. But only when air launched do the missiles spin out of control. Not firing high off boresight. Haven't done extensive testing to narrow variables, but i wondered if anyone has had luck using the modular missiles on planes against each other. Honestly it would be my favorite feature if it worked. The thought of tweaking and build a fleet of custom missiles or recreations sound awesome to me.

Have you seen this tutorial?

It is not air launched but actually the process is exactly the same. And I can tell you that firing AAM missiles from one flying plane to another works fine :)

Is somewhere tutorial for surface AI settings and air AI settings? Wiki is outdated...

my ship is constantly sailing left and right losing all speed on defaut settings, I need it to go straight and not loose all speed by constantly turning. I even set drift to 1 but didn't helped.

PS: Also, the simultaneous firing of two weapon greoups/weapons work how exactly?

Yes I have seen that video. I'm going to try a few more thing to see if I can get them working air launched. If you would like I can upload a craft file for my missiles. Only mods needed would be B9 Pwings, procedural parts, FAR, and RealFuels.

 

Edit

Having done more testing lowing speeds to 1.5 mach the missiles do not work when air launched. I would love for you to make a  video to show it working.

@jrodriguez Any word on then all the BDArmory parts are going to be updated with the bulkheadProfiles parameter? Been bugging out my advanced build filters for ages.

I'll record a video showing how to build a AAM FAR compatible :)

Nope, you can fire them manually as long as you have a lock to the target

Sorry but I'm not aware of it. Honestly, I'm not really doing any bug fixing, just the mandatory things (fixing critical bugs, etc) to keep the mod alive.

Is there any way a BDarmory procedural cluster explosive with the same effect as the cluster bomb could be made?

BDA 1.3.1 is out - just a couple of bugfixes:

FIXES

  • All parts have bulkheadProfiles - should stop bulkhead filter NREs.
  • Rocket pods no longer fire StackOverflows.

i was curious- when i made the different aa components as a renamed ui (millennium cannon and an external weapon mod that is a cwis with missile attachments) it wont move like a turret should be behaving.... same as the artillery batteries for secondaries (both from NAS and its resized 18.1 in guns and the 6 in usn guns as secondaries) and even the laser systems (both the airborne and the laws systems).....is there a way i can fix it manually, or would there need an update to fix it? my apologies if i asked.....

 

Spoiler

https://steamcommunity.com/id/Submarine_M1/screenshot/793109497198035315         for the weapons and the ship itself in question

 

 

 

edit: it was a launchsite selection that ruined it, so plez don't worry about this reply

It does affect guns. The AI checks if it should start firing guns every firing interval seconds. If it does, it will keep firing them for burst interval seconds, or half the firing interval if the burst interval is zero (<0.5 actually).

Yeah, sorry about that. Not sure which wiki you're referring to (there's the ingame one, and the one floating on the internet), but, I guess, they are all outdated.

For surface AI, you can right click the part in the VAB, and find a list of what each setting does in the part documentation. For pilot AI... I'll see if I can add that. :)

Regarding tutorials, my favourite place is to check the BDA dogfighting competitions in the challenges subforum, but YMMV.

Also, I think most of the settings will be pretty clear from description, except maybe the Factor, Damping and Ki, for which you can google about PID controllers (Factor is the Proportional part, Ki is the Integral part and Damping is the Damping part).

It sounds like your control is underdamped, try increasing steer damping.

Right click a weapon in VAB/SPH, Show Weapon Group UI, set both weapons to the exact same weapon group (type in the same name) - they will fire together.

So we can't have two weapon groups firing on two targets simultaneously?

No.

I really want to say "not yet". I've been wanting this myself for a while, but it is quite a complicated change to do in maintainable way, so we'll just have to see if it happens. :)

As far as I know the current logic supports multi-weapons but only one target.

I agree. I think this would be a very interesting feature to add :)
