Wreckage investigation contracts

Recommended Posts

Hello, first timer in this section of the forum.

 

I was scrolling  throught the KSP2 features section and in the discussion something went up, about getting money "stealing" other agencies ships. Even if I disliked it, the idea of contracts involving investigation of offworld ships wreackages is appealing. I don't think -a priori- it would be difficult to implement, but I have no idea where to start modding.

 

Basics:

- Being able to use scanner arms in "feature parts" that would be special semi-destroyed parts in ships (engines, tanks, capsules). Transmiting the result of the scanning would accomplish the mission.

-Destroyed ships would appear in orbit or on he surface of planets, very much alike rescue missions are now.

-Ships would have multiple parts. (i believe this is the harder to script)

-Kerbals could "take a piece" of the feature parts, like they can do with mun stones.

 

Extras:

-A giant derelict ship in orbit of Jool would be freaking cool to see. Getting inside with an explorer would be too much to put in words. <3

I'm guessing here but I would look into making assets like the scanable items Breaking Ground added - I haven't seen anyone doing anything like that - though GregroxMun has had scatterers on some of his planets (probably requires Kopernicus). You'd need to figure if you could create single instances like the monoliths.

Like a flight recorder? That would be neat.

I think this is a cool idea.  Maybe there could also be a scanner dish that would alert you to unknown wreckage within x distance or on an intersecting orbital path.  Like imagine getting to Eve orbit for the first time and getting a ping of another vessel being there.
