Unfortunately, that's not quite correct (emphasis added):

What assets are ARR here? I took the source code and compiled my own DLL.

Yeah, I see that after looking into it more closely. I guess that was boilerplate that the author pasted whether it was relevant or not?

That's the way I took it.

Is this release really compatible all the way back to KSP 1.3.0? Seems worth double checking since it contains a DLL.

White Bird:  Flight Tower, are we cleared for 70,000 meters?

Flight Tower:  How the hell are you going to get up to 70,000 meters?

White Bird:  Correction on that last transmission, we want to go DOWN to 70,000 meters.

Flight Tower: .... You're cleared for 70,000 meters....

Is there any way to get just the spark effects and not the plasma trail? I think the sparks look great but the trail is overkill and I don't like it.

That's a good feature request. Raise an issue on GitHub and I'll look into it.

Hey @leatherneck6017 really appreciate it that you adopted this mod. I really used to enjoy it! Thanks!

You're welcome. I've always enjoyed the extra immersion from these visuals, glad to maintain it.

Thank you for keeping this mod alive. I'm honestly not sure what stock re-entries even look like anymore, I've been playing with this so long.

Now that I'm (finally) updating to 1.8.1, I wanted to check if there are any known incompatibilities with the 1.9 recompile running against 1.8.1 KSP?

I'll go ahead and install and report back any issues I might see. Again, thanks for taking over this mod!

Thank you for keeping this mod alive.

I have a question.

In the rocket launch phase, after the speed reaches a certain value, the effect also occurs. How to deal with this problem?ThdbjjQ.png

If you're going fast enough, the effect will trigger regardless of if you're going up or down. Try launching a bit more steeply (turn later or to a smaller angle) to climb higher with less overall velocity before accelerating to orbit- it might be slightly less efficient but it will most likely stop the plasma trail.

Thank you.I'm still thinking, is this the egg of this mod,HH.

@leatherneck6017 any progress on switching the trail/sparks off individually?

I've had zero time for KSP the last couple of months :(. I do remember writing some of the code before my hiatus. Hopefully my schedule will clear up a bit this summer so I can get back to KSP in general, and the code for this.
