@Sigma88

Lovely! I’ve wanted a mod like this for a long time :D I’ll install it as soon as I get a chance to play KSP.

I’ve got a feature suggestion: please ignore me if this is impossible or just too difficult, but it’d be cool to see Kerbal Konstructs support, so that you can see your custom statics out of the editor doors :wink:

This mod has been around for a while now, I just never made a thread for it in the forums.

I'm trying to start making threads again, just to see how it goes.

Expecially because I want to see how the automatic installation using the twitch app is received.

 

Regarding the kk compatibility, that feature has already been added to the mod a few versions back.

@Sigma88 So I've had this mod installed for a few days now. It's great, really adds to the immersion :)

I did find a bit of a bug though - the sun tends to appear in weird places, most notably shining through the VAB walls or in the main menu.

This might be me screwing up rather than a bug, so I'll reinstall the mod to be sure.

this should not be happening for sure :)

and it does not happen on my clean install of KSP with just EditorView

could you try to reproduce this bug with as few mods as possible? and when you manage to do that, can you send me the file:

KSP/Logs/Logs-Kopernicus.zip

 

thanks

Does this mod need Kopernicus or something? I don’t use it, so I don’t see how it could affect anything.

I’ll try a clean install with just EditorView installed and see if I can reproduce it though. If I can’t get it to happen, I’ll try and figure out what other mod is causing the problem.

no it doesn't need kopernicus, it can work on its own.

Kopernicus and other mods are compatible, but maybe one of the mods you had is not compatible yet

 

also, the latest release is for 1.8.1, if you are on an older version of the game you should downgrade, but I don't remember the state of older releases so they might work not as well as the latest one

 

to provide the logs, if you don't have kopernicus, just send me the mm cachefile and the ksp log

@RealKerbal3x did you manage to solve your issues?

Sorry, I was distracted...I haven’t been able to take a look yet. I’ll probably have some time for troubleshooting tomorrow :wink:

@Sigma88 Sorry for keeping you waiting for so long, my internet was down for a couple of days. I did some troubleshooting on a 1.8.1 game with only the DLCs and EditorView installed:

I was expecting the problem to be with my mods, so the result was unexpected.

Then I figured that I should try installing the mod differently, to see if that solved the problem, but it didn't appear to.

@RealKerbal3x look out the open doors of either building, at different times of the day and night

I have. The bug seems only to occur in daylight, and the second sun usually appears shining through the VAB/SPH walls, though sometimes it appears out of the doors (making it look like Kerbin belongs to a binary star system, interestingly :P).

Is this a Steam install?  

If so, then you might have left over files from previous mods which may not have been fully uninstalled

You need to follow these instructions to fully delete all files from the game:

  1. Open Steam, select the Library tab
  2. Find KSP, and right-click on it, select Properties
  3. Click the tab labeled Local Files
  4. Click the button labeled Browse Local Files
  5. Delete all the files shown, then close the window
  6. Click the button labeled Verify Integrity Of Game Files

That should clean everything out, so now go ahead and install the mod and try again

EditorView installed:

4xQ4TYV.png

 

This is the correct way to install EditorView

If you have issues running the game with that install could you please send me the Player.log file generated by ksp?

 

You can find it in

 

%AppData%\..\LocalLow\Squad\KerbalSpaceProgram\Player.log

OK. In any case, this is probably the files left over from one of my mods (since I simply copied the KSP root folder and deleted my mods to get a clean install) and not a problem with this mod by itself. Sorry for causing such a fuss :rolleyes:

I’ll try and find the Player.log, but since I have several installs that are all creating that log, I don’t know if I’ll find the right one. I’ll have to do some troubleshooting anyway.

If you get the logs just after having run the game you can be sure the log is from that session

 

Keep in mind that the adress I gave you is only for windows, other os generate the log in different places
