Sepratron I center of mass change


Recommended Posts

I was going to use a Sepratron I for something, when I noticed that its center of mass (CM) is fairly offset. I admittedly feel as if the CM of the part is fairly unrealistic and that it needs some offset, although I'm not sure where to start with writing a config file to change the CM so that it is more inline with the booster component than the attachment spokes. Also when are we getting stock inline sepratrons/option to toggle between spoke mount and no spoke mount motors lol

Anyway, I just want to change where the CM is without having to hard-code the values in, as well as what portion of code I would need to look at.

 

Thanks for the help

Basic MM patching here:

@PART[sepMotor1]
{
CoMOffset = x,y,z ///What this does is add a new variable to the part cfg to overwrite the CoM pos, since normally COM is coded in the model
}

This should work if you replace x,y,z with the coordinates of the new CoM.
