Dark side and facing sun screenshots are really bad...jus sayin. I cant really tell what im looking at. Glad to see these mods supported again tho :kiss:

generally I agree - however, they do add a sense of mystery and foreshadowing. :)

DM's is almost ready to go, mostly it is just taking the time to get the threads and releases ready.

I plan on releasing these as a TWYLALTR packs - which takes allot more time to set up.

Duopods are now finally working, one though needs a depreciated part, so took a page out of @linuxgurugamer and provided a very familiar windows batch file to copy the needed stuff.

New Parts (working on today)

Reized Hitchhiker's Passenger Cans. Is just a smaller hitchhikers (think I can do two sizes) - won't have an IVA (well, will leave the existing one).

Only issue is Restock.

Why not TweakScale? TweakScale does not scale Crew Capacity.

Proposed specification:? (PPD-10 is the HHSC) Maybe PPD-05 and PPD-01?

PPD-10 (Existing Stock Part):

  • crew: 4
  • 2.5m
  • TechRequired: spaceExploration
  • entryCost - 12400
  • cost = 4000
  • category = Utility
  • mass: 2.5

PPD-20:

  • crew: 8
  • 5m
  • TechRequired:
  • entryCost -
  • cost =
  • category = Payload
  • mass: 5

PPD-15:

  • crew: 6
  • 3.75m
  • TechRequired:
  • entryCost -
  • cost =
  • category = Payload
  • mass: 3.75

PPD-05:

  • crew: 3
  • 1.875m
  • TechRequired:
  • entryCost - 9300
  • cost = 3000?
  • category = Payload
  • mass: 1.875

PPD-01:

  • crew: 2
  • 1.25m
  • TechRequired:
  • entryCost - 4200
  • cost = 500?
  • category = Payload
  • mass: 0.625

PPD-00:

  • crew: 1
  • 0.625m
  • TechRequired:
  • entryCost -
  • cost =
  • category = Payload
  • mass: 0.3125

ReStock should be able to be handled pretty easily with a blacklist/whitelist patch. That team did and excellent job of initially taking into consideration how to allow and not break other mods that need stock models/textures. ;)

They even did a full wiki page with excellent documentation on how to do the listing. Its even easier than an MM patch. ;)

That's the thing: TweakScale does scales Crew Capacity! :)

However, there's a mishbehaviour on the KSP U.I. (see Issue #44) that prevents TweakScale to scale up the Crew Capacity.

The code works (see this post), but only when scaling down! (i,e., you have a 4 seats part, when you scale it down to 50% you get 2 seats, and to 25% you get one sit), it's the scaling up that make KSP blows. I think that the U.I. code is hardcoded to the part's prefab data, not the living part. So scaling it "live" borks the U.I.

oops. excellent point. maybe 1.8/newer Unity/.NET will fix that. *knocking on wood*

thought as much, just less experienced with editing ReStock. However, if I use :AFTER and :FIRST then should be easy peasy since default ReStock settings will carry through.

First set nearly done. That is a Mk1 pod on top and stock Hitchhikers model is lit. Now for the tall models.

Well thats the thing, IIRC Restock has its own plugin, that uses its own file extensions for white/black lists, so it has nothing to do with MM patching, hence the order of MM patches doesnt matter. What could cause issues if there are other mods patching stock files.

good to know that - since ReStock is next (just have to do the CLS patches)

Okay all versions/models are now representing correctly and all nodes are in their places.

Here is the full stack, unless you want some pancakes? :P

Trying to test them. I do get the switch of the stock hitchhiker to the payload category, but none of the other parts show up in the editor.

MM, KSP logs + gamedata folder here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/u1a0q74bzdulczb/logs-Dante80.zip/file

my only guess is ReStock.

try adding this patch to the KGEx/MoreHitchhikers/MM-Patch directory:

Spoiler

filename: "KGEx/MoreHitchhikers/MM-Patch/MoreHitchhikers.restockwhitelist"

 

// MoreHitchhikers.restockwhitelist v1.0
// MoreHitchhikers
// created: 02 Oct 19
// updated: 02 Oct 19

Squad/Parts/Command/hitchhikerStorageContainer/

// CC BY-NC-SA-4.0
// zer0Kerbal

 

I am planning on working on the ReStock issue later today so that this mod uses ReStock textures etc when ReStock is installed.

@Dante80 PS - all other patches and stuff looks like it is being handled correctly by your system. Just can't find the model/textures because ReStock has deleted them.

Yep, that fixed it for me. They look great. Will fiddle with the habitat numbers for balance purposes (these are essentially tuna cans with Kerbals inside). Having those with restock textures (and the four subtypes they provide for part ends) would be terrific!

Thought as much (ReStock). Thank you.

kindly tell me any balance/other changes so I can incorporate them. Would love to see some variations in the flavor text (Bob was eating his canned beans and thought why not scale it up and stick a kerbal in it. Maybe that explains why the PPD-01 smells of baked beans.)

Will have an update up later today (v1.0.0.3) that includes a replacement for ReStock whitelisting - and instead has a ReStock patch for each of the parts (s.i.c.). This means you can delete the patch I gave you once you have the new patches (which are up on GitHub \MM-Patches\ReStock\).

four subtypes? I thought @Nertea only did that with SSPX?

I did think about doing a 'short' version as well - what do you think? would only be for the 1.875m, 2.5m, 3.75m, and 5m sizes (about half the height of the normal in that size)

I will play with the USI habitat stats and post them here. I would want this to be balanced against other parts when used for supporting kerbals.

With regards to subtypes, here is how the stock Hitchhiker looks to me ingame.

RTIKTvN.jpg

Maybe its Restock+ (I have also that installed). I don't really care for the subtypes, just a suggestion. Having the Restock default texture in would be enough for me.

Half length sounds good, but you would be getting too many parts to unlock and use at that point imo (personally, I'll only ever use the two 1.25 parts).

 

Again, many thanks for the work!

maybe three tuna cans... :P:o will decide later. *chuckle* I did go a little above what you had asked for. *chuckle*

Hmmm... will look into the subtypes and see if can include. shouldn't be ... well, will decide how hard it will be after it is done. :P

https://github.com/zer0Kerbal/KGEx/releases/tag/MoreHitchhikers-v1.0.0.2

has all the latest.

Any other stats (cost, weight, etc et al) please do post. I will update the spreadsheet and repost a image clip of it.

you are most certainly welcome. I learned some and had some fun.

It isn't ReStock or ReStock+ that is allowing you to change your endcaps - it is SSPXr. Will see if can put together a patch for MHH that does the same.
