[1.8.x, 1.9.x] Civilian Population

Recommended Posts

Hello @linuxgurugamer

I will update by installation with this release, later at night and then I will give my feedback. Thanks!

Meanwhile what, I am missing (it would be a nice feature to have) is the save of the kerbal age with persistence :)

The ages are random distributed by kerbals and sometimes when I reload a saved game they are younger, because its random... :S

New release, 3.0.0.5

  • Renamed module to ModuleAnimateGenericEffects
  • Split ModuleAnimateGenericEffects into new mod
  • Added MM code to parts to use stock ModuleAnimateGeneric if the ModuleAnimateGenericEffects is not installed
  • Mod now has dependency on ModuleAnimateGenericEffects for proper animation & sounds for the landing legs

Download from here:

https://github.com/linuxgurugamer/CivilianPopulation/releases/tag/3.0.0.5

Note that this mod now has a "soft" dependency on the following new mod; soft meaning that if not installed things will still work, but the landing legs animations will be too fast and silent:

Please delete the current version of the mod before installing this new beta

On 3.0.0.5, all seams to be working well including the new landing legs animation:

Could you send me a save game with a colony, which has kerbals being generated?

I'm looking at the code, and it does seem that the birthdates are being recorded, so I need to figure out why they are changing.  A save file would be very helpful

Strange, at least landed on Kerbin, this behavior it's not reproducible.

I will keep an eye on it, to check, when that will happen again.

 

Another thing that is strange is why only one is dead :)

Hello good night, @linuxgurugamer

Congratulations by the work done!  for giving live to those lost old parts of CP.

There are 2 things that I noticed (on top of that listed before with age of 380 and so on )

 

- [1] The legs don't move on editor, (but maybe this is expected)

- [2] The legs now go a little below the runway level:

Not necessary, but I'll see if I can configure it

I noticed that as well.  It's a collider issue, I will see if I can find someone to fix it.

I'll look into the issue of why they aren't dying.

Actually on the Image that I uploaded, there is a bug introduced by @SQUAD on 1.8.x, on those light sprites, near the runway, this rendering bug, actually disappear if we advance the time to night, then on next day light, the problem is solved! :)

I using in my colony also the new golden parts added to civilian population:

https://kerbalx.com/pmborg/Space3

https://kerbalx.com/pmborg/Alfa-Colony-Vip2

For those that don't know how it works here a few hints.

arxqr4k.png

1 - Recruitment Center  just click on recruit button and a new Kerbal from KSC can appear here on colony, but this is only valid for Kerbin orbit or Mun.

2 - University, just transfer a new baby Civilian to here and then click on recruit button and a Civilian will become a Kerbal (Eng. or Sci or Pilot (randomly))

3- Flight School - Similar to University but here only recruit pilots

A - Apartment Complex - Put a Male(s) and one or more Females here and after 10 days of more a female will become pregnant and after about 318 days a new baby Civilian will born. (a new candidate to University or Flight School)

B- Used for life support.

 

Maybe you found this video useful, an example of how-to use it:

 

Steps to load those modules from KerbalX HOW TO:

Install from CKAN these pack: https://www.dropbox.com/s/pb5hursdsea38u1/CKAN1.8.1.ckan?dl=0

Does USI-LS work with this, or is it just TACLS?

Really love this idea! Will it eventually be compatible to kerbalism? :0.0:

I use it with this pack of mods, which is the one that I also use for interstellar flights with KSPIE:

But just for this colony is only a sub set of it.

New beta, 3.0.0.7

  • Fixed internal spaces for flight school and movie theater
  • Removed resources from the flight school (Not needed since they are added by LS patches)
  • Added message to hab module showing current breeding status
  • Improved recruitment, to now take into account what is being show in in the movie theatres
  • Chance of female getting pregnant now improved if romance movies are being shown

https://github.com/linuxgurugamer/CivilianPopulation/releases

My thanks to user @pmborg who has helped in the testing of this.

Changes to the base mod are now complete.  I'll be working on Life Support now.

The following mods already have patches in place for Life Support, so I'm not going to touch them:

  • TAC-LS
  • USI-LS
  • Kerbalism (both Classic and default)

I'll be adding patches for the following:

  • Snacks!
  • Progressive Colonization

When complete, the 5 most popular life support mods will be supported.

For those with less experience on Civilian Population MOD with USI life support MOD here a few hints:

To avoid keep and eye and Control the Habitation Sickness and the Home Sickness, you can just bring 5 stars astronauts this problem don't happen.

As you can see on this example the pilot 5 Stars Pmborg, don't feel such things :)

An update for everybody:

I've been digging into why null vessels were in the list and causing problems, just found it in the JSON code.  The clue I had was that a female in a new station could get pregnant, but if I reloaded the game, she could not.  That's now working.

I've also consolidated it all into a single DLL, makes it easier to both build, distribute and have common functions, such as my logging library.

I can now get back to the new parts and the new/old mechanisms.  For testing I am leaving the short time for Uni, flight school, etc, but will increase them before release.

Specifically: 

  • Currently 3 days for flight school will eventually turn into something more, probably 3-6 months for a level 1.
  • Flight School creates FlightExperience, will need both FlightExperience and Inspiration to be recruited.
  • Movie Theatre provides Inspiration
  • University provides education, education is used both for Engineer and Scientist, again, inspiration is also needed.

There are limits to how much of each of these can be stored in each building

Great mod! I've been setting up a Minmus base for manufacturing ships using this, TAC Life Support, EL, KIS/KAS, and KSP Interstellar Extended and it's been a fun engineering and logistics problem.
