The Science Camera - Part Suggestion

Recommended Posts

My love of rovers and other orbiters would be enhanced with an additional part series that could be incorporated as part of the wonderful Breaking Ground science. 

Rovers and orbiters lack cameras. They could actually take photos (effectively screenshots) but, as a per-biome credit, add science which could be transmitted or retrieved. 

Cosmetically, cameras could be in three sizes and be a boon for the appearance and science of any probe. A camera should be one of the earliest on the tree and could even be weaker in the image (black/white, grainy) but increase in size and science. 

I know mods like Probes Plus have very cool parts of the type. But if we could give rovers their tower eyes or orbiters a boom with science like Voyager, in-game, it would add to the immersion. Having Kerbals take photos of themselves would also be a hoot.

Yes, it would also be nice for spy says and surveying landing sites

Are you looking for something like this?

I've just recompiled the dll for the current version and the cameras work perfectly.

This would be a great way to gain new Science and just another fun way to play KSP

Thanks. While I am hoping for a stock solution sometime, I’ll take a look!
