This mod aims to provide simple craft building capability in flight mode to stock parts.

adopted for curation by @zer0Kerbal
from @EricWi from @RealGecko Originally created by MatterBeam

SC FLag
SimpleConstruction!

Description

After testing out Extraplanetary Launchpads and Roverdude's MK/OKS, @MatterBeam had the idea of creating a simple, user friendly mod that would allow you to build rockets without taking a 200MB hit to RAM or having to juggle multitudes of resource pathways. If you know how to set up a drill, ISRU and a fuel tank for an Ore to Fuel conversion, then you should know how to build rockets.

Features

  • No extra parts
  • No RAM usage
  • Added functionality for the Mobile Processing Lab in the late game
  • Simple, configurable and adds levels of depth to the game play without a learning curve

So having an issue.

I have 1.8.1 with DLC installed.

SimpleConstruction 4.0.2.1

ToolbarController/Toolbar/CTB

KerbalStats

and not much else.

The stocktoolbar button shows, but nothing in toolbarcontroller or on blizzy's.

left clicking the EL button does apparently nothing

right clicking the EL button brings up resource transfer.

have vessel productivity > 1

have multiple 5 :rep: Engineers on vessel

have power

have comms

have rocketparts.

have a lab

have a cupola

have a hitchhikers....

have several varieties of docking ports

 

What am I missing?

Maybe the "Launchpad.dll" from original EL?

Is missing in this new SC-Packages.

good thought, but have included the most current version of it (and licenses) in the .zip (made sure to ask permission); the toolbar icons appear - and can get up everything except the build window.

Am going to remove everything on my Dev build and just install EL from CKAN and its requirements and see if it works. Then will use one of the included .craft files and see if shows the build window.

At this point that is the next logical step.

Now CKAN says not compatible with this Version of KSP.

Also "Not So Simple Construction" will not install it as a depency.

4.0.2.2.1 is compatible with KSP 1.8.1 in CKAN, that sounds just right?

And NSSC seems to pull in everything that's needed: ModuleManager, Interstellar Fuel Switch, KIS, Community Category Kit, and Simple Construction.

Right, it should, but it dont here on my Site with a fresh install.

It work with manual install.

No problem, i still use my own adopted Simple Construction (1.42).

-----

Richtig, es sollte, tut es aber nicht, in einem nackten KSP.
Egal, wie man es in CKAN auswählt, es wird Rot markiert und der Install-Button ist ausgegraut.

Manuell reingeworfen funktioniert es wie es soll. AVC wirft nur einen Fehler aus, dass die Launchpad.dll nicht
für die 1.81er-KSP "getagged" ist.

Ist für mich persönlich auch kein Problem, da ich mein selbst angepasstes 1.42er-Simple Construction
wie gewohnt auch in der 142-Mod-1.81er weiterverwende.

PS: Thanks very much to keep this Mod alive!

I have been 'slowly' increasing the version compatibility to make sure it is compatible with prior versions.

I have done the most rudimentary testing with 1.8 (ie it works for me) and so I felt comfortable releasing it to KSP 1.8.1 (once I replaced the missing 'screw' :o )

There only should be one dependency with several recommendations. Dependant upon MM; recommends KerbalStats (adding that one) and several others; one of which being NSSC. (s.i.c.) I am updating the CKAN data to remove the IFS dependency. @HebaruSan , the netKAN might need a refresh - I just doublechecked the SpaceDock  and github readme - and made sure they were/are corect.

I am debating about adding the EL-launchclamps; they makes sense, but aren't really in the spirit of this mod.

I don't control NSSC, @Mrcarrot does. I have asked to adopt for curation NSSC, and hopefully will hear back soon, else I will adopt it for curation under terms of its license. (GPLv3). Hopefully I will be able to adopt the Spacedock and CKAN entries.

@Jansn67

kindly make sure to do a clean install, 4.0.2.2.1 has v6.7.0.0 LaunchPad.dll included (in correct directory) and does not (should not) trip up incompatible version alarm. I had to build the .zip manually (fixing that) and it (I) misplaced the .dll (apologies).
