Hello !

Im working on my first ksp mod who's gonna add new propulsion systems (like nuclear fusion or antimatter for example).

I have a little problem with one of my engines : im using a module enginesFX for the engine principal informations and a prefab_particle for the flame. And the flame, dont want to apears when the engine start.

If someone can check the code and tell me if there is errors, it will be very helpful !  Thank you !!:D:D

powerEffectName = running
  1. shouldn't this be runningEffectName?
  2. each needs to be named differently so 'runningHe3' and 'runningTritrium' unless you want both to be the same - and I don't know if that will work.

 

here is a working example from OrbitalTug (just updated it)

@zer0Kerbal I changed powerEffectName with runningEffectName but the flame still not appear. I have added a flameout effect and when there is not fuel anymore the flameout effect work, but not in the right direction. After, i had looked at the OrbitalTug's code but i dont see big difference that can prevent the apparition of the flame.

sometimes it can be a simple thing like capitalization or a misplaced space - not much else I can say to help.
