You know what, if really all it takes is a namechange of the defined experiment, getting Kerbalism compatibility may just be easy enough to consider doing myself after all. Can you provide a full list of the definitions changed by Kerbalism, so I can see how much work it would be?

Honestly, it may not be worth it. Kerbalism significantly changes how science works. There is no transmission of unmanned experiments you have already completed, for example.  This will mean it does not play well with your pack, as I am finding out.

It's a shame because both are great add-ons. 

AFAIK, Kerbalism also changes the science defs for nearly everything, but there is only one BDB experiment where the experiment ID is changed. For what it is worth.

Alright, thanks for your input. I'll leave it be then.

Are we gonna be able to build the ISS together in this contract pack???

Not currently, but it is planned to have ISS contracts included, yes. Don't expect them soon though, a lot of stuff to do before that and no promises on how quick it gets done.

Hello.

First of all, great mod and thanks for keeping it updated.:cool:

I have few issues while recovering Kappa-1 (JAXA) and R-12 Devina (CCCP) probes. Contract does not get completed after I try to recover them. I can do succesfully all needed parts of the contract (launch, science & flight to the needed heights and return to Kerbin), but after that it still stays on active contracts. I'm talking about the 700 contracts Stock version here.

I know that it does not work well with Kerbalism, but its still weird that contract with any scientific experience does not get completed, because I have done already couple other very similar contracts just fine. :) I will try to test both contracts without Kerbalism at some point later, but I wanted you to know about possible issue there. I might even try Pocket Edition with Kerbalism to see if there is similar issues with it.

Edit. Tested Kappa-1 with + 700 Contract Stock without Kerbalism, it works fine. So the issue was that it does not work with Kerbalism, I was kinda expecting that. :confused:

Added test result without 'Kerbalism' mod.

This is even more strange, I've never had an instance where the contract that just completed was offered again, and I cannot reproduce the issue you describe. Not sure what could be done about it either, the only thing required for ANY contract in this pack is for the pre-requisite contract to be completed. And even that can easily be turned off in the CC debug menu. The only thing I can say is to double check CC and any other related mods are installed correctly, and hopefully you didn't install 2 versions of this pack either.

Aside from the Field Science pack and whatever contracts come with Strategia yours is the only one I have, and all I've done to it is to go into the Missions folder and delete everything but the USA Missions folder.

That specific problem seemed to only occur because I hadn't actually left the atmosphere. Once I reached space everything is moving along as expected.

Moving on, can someone tell me why neither mission thinks I'm not in orbit, despite the fact I definitely am?

This is the second satellite I've launched, the first was recognized as in orbit, but the inclination was wrong.
The second got the inclination correct, but the mission refuses to recognize I'm in orbit.

@KPD87 Yeah by now it's pretty safe to say most science objectives will have trouble with Kerbalism. I particularly suspect the ones inside vesselparametergroups to be harder to do with it installed. I will add a note to the installation instructions; basically you'll want to disable any affected objectives before taking the contract, when using Kerbalism.

@MailletC At this point I'm almost certain there's issues with either your savegame or your install. Try and see if it works on a new career save, it's actually pretty common for issues like this to start popping up in pre-existing saves. Beyond that, all I can advise is a clean install.

Soyuz fans, good news for you!

It's been a little quiet on the updates front, life's been busy, you know how it is. 
However, I've not been sitting entirely idle: I just pushed a new dev branch commit, adding 24 new Soyuz missions! These are Soyuz 21-40 and Soyuz T-1 to T-4; mostly visits to Salyut-5 and Salyut-6.

I will soon be looking to wrap up the current dev cycle and put out all the additions since 0.8.1 into a proper 0.9 release. If there's any feedback or issues, please don't hold back so I can include it.
Of course, I don't plan on being done with it quite yet after that...

And the time has come to wrap up all updates since the last major release into an official new release version:

History of Spaceflight 0.9.0 is live!

At time of writing the update should be available on GitHub and Spacedock; CKAN users may have to wait for the repository to update.

This release includes everything already shown here before, as has been available through the dev version.
However, I added something extra: I concluded the entire Salyut/Soyuz suite by adding the missing Soyuz T missions, numbers 5-14.

With this update, nearly 90 new missions have been added since the last major version!

The summary of the full changelog since version 0.8.1 is this:

- Added Surveyor missions 3-7.
- Added additional Coatl Aerospace parameters for Mariner 3-4 and all Surveyor missions.
- Added all manned Apollo missions, including Apollo I as a memorial mission.
- Added all Skylab missions.
- Added all Salyut launch missions, 1-7.
- Added Soyuz missions up until Soyuz 40 and Soyuz T missions 1-14.
- Added Lunar Orbiter missions 3-5.
- Adjusted BDB parameters to differentiate between BDB 1.7 and earlier versions.
- Additional MM patches to support combined installs of BDB and SCANsat & DMOS.
- Various small fixes and balancing.

 

As always, please report any bugs and balance issues as you find them and I will get back to you.

FYI - GameData\ContractPacks\HistoryofSpaceflight\Missions\USAMissions\MannedMissions\GeminiMissions\Gemini-XII.cfg is missing a closing curly brace at line 103.

I absolutely love the contract pack and this has gotten me into creating more missions and possibly getting into blender to fill in the gap of spacecraft not included by other mods. I've only had a few problems, the most major being Gemini VIA and VII, when performing the rendezvous I got the craft close together and even docked them but I was not able to complete the mission requirements for rendezvous. Do I need to rename the spacecraft to specifically say Gemini VIA and VII?
