Documentation Manual

Preamble by @TriggerAu:

About

Basically the Alternate Resource panel displays a view of resources in the current vessel with a bit more clarity. It also lets you see the remaining value in the currently active stage for fuels as you fly - which is useful for asparagus staging.

It also has some Staging capabilities added so you can stage from map view and also have autostaging on ascent (tied it in because of the resources/last stage tie in)

The KSP Alternate Resource Panel is a plugin to the Kerbal Space program game and was created to provide me an alternate view of the resources list and also add some staging functionality to the map view.

Basically installing this gives you an extra button labelled "Alternate" next to the Resources button in the top right corner. When you hover over it it will keep the panel displayed while the mouse is over any part of the panel, or if you click it it will be toggled on.

It displays a list of all the resources that are present on your vessel with a bar graph of the amount on vessel and the amount remaining. It also has the following additional capabilities:


AlternateResourcePanel

  • Displays stage amount/usage - so you can see how much fuel is left in your current stage, esp in an asparagus configuration - Now configure which side the stage is displayed on (*New in 2.4.1.0)
  • Adjust the order and Grouping of the Resources so they display how you like - some can even be set to only show up when a threshold is passed - Now with Drag And Drop and Separator Inserts (*New in 2.3.0.0)
  • Optionally displays the change rate (or instant consumption) values
  • Optionally displays time till empty/full (*New in 2.2.0.0)
  • Optionally hide a resource on empty (New in 2.1.0.0) or on Full (New in 2.2.0.0)
  • Select Resources to see part windows and look at individual components
  • Transfer Resources between parts - like the standard part windows (*New in 2.1.0.0)
  • Add Alarms to get visual and Audio queues for what needs attention - even add your own sounds
  • Maintains settings and visibility between vessel switches/restarts
  • KAC style update checker added
  • Movable and lockable panel
  • Option of the KSP or Unity styles
  • Ability to add icons by simply placing files in the right folder
  • Ability for Modders to provide icons with their mod and have them display in KSPARP
  • Ability to configure the order of preference for icon sets
  • Ability to configure resources to hide on full/empty as well as cater to disabled flows for full vessel resources
  • Ability to configure non-staging resources to show Active/Reserve values using the green/blue bars (*New in 2.2.2.0)
  • Optional Staging facility with Ability to Activate Stages in Map View, and
  • Ability to use Space Bar in Map view to activate stages - like in standard flight mode
  • Autostaging Controller to activate stages on engine flameout (*New in 2.1.0.0)
  • Now contains icons for resources from: Kethane, Deadly Reentry, Extra Planetary Launchpads, KSP Interstellar, Life Support By Bobcat, RealFues, Near Future, TAC Life Support
  • API for information reading and alarm acknowledgement (*New in 2.1.0.0)

Currently is Feature Complete

ARP really should be stock, but it isn't, so a big thank you for keeping it alive!

This is my only gripe with Trigger's otherwise awesome mods. I'd much prefer this to be disabled by default, and only optionally check after the user has decided to allow it. I think the GDPR would agree. Any chance you could alter this behaviour to be more privacy conscious?

I know "issuing an HTTP GET - and sending no data"  sounds inconspicuous, but I don't particularly like giving Google yet another data point of tracking my IP every day.

I am intending to either make it optional, or remove it all together and let CKAN / AVC do the heavy lifting.

Awesome. This is how it should have been done from the beginning.

To this day I'm still wondering how Squad/TT/Unity3D can get away with their borked "opt out" policy.

in the beginning - there wasn't any good way for a mod to stay current. I can see why. Just things have gotten so much better (CKAN) (AVC) since. - but last update was for 1.4.x -

 

This is one of my more complex code mods , and it will take time to go through it - even as well written as it is.

I was there, trust me. And even before the existence of the awesome CKAN and the dreaded AVC I have somehow managed to stay on top of keeping the (not insignificant number of) mods I use up-to-date.

No doubt about that, and it is much appreciated. It really is.

as was I - but for large swaths of time - I had limited internet - except sat.

kindly take it for a drive, see if it throws any [ERR [WRN [EXC - I didn't see any but my testing wasn't as thorough as I'd would have liked it to have been. Besides, most like causes of error would have been during OnStart, OnLoad, or OnAwake. Mostly I depended upon having a quiet pre-release, and since I didn't see anything, or hear anything...

 

but don't try it on 1.7.3 - that will not generally work.

 

If things go well, I will release for 1.9.1 in a week or so. probably just after 1.10.0 hits. :o:P:D:cool:

Do you expect your current version 2.9.5.0 to work in 1.9?

It may be a while before I get to test it (and if so, on 1.9), but no amount of testing is going to make much sense if there are already known issues.

I do expect it to work in 1.9.1 since nothing much (at least relating to this mod) from 1.8. to 1.9.1 unlike from 1.7 to 1.8 with the change from .NET 3.5 -> 4.* and Unity 2017 -> 2019.

so far, no known issues. :D I have been scrubbing through the logs looking - and only found (and fixed) several texture compression issues. :D

Did you manage to fix the duplicate entries for resources bug? The one where you couldn’t reorder the resources at the top of the list?

Hmmm...13 hours after this released and I still don't see it on CKAN.  I can wait but thanks very much for undertaking this.

Your CKAN link in the OP take you to a deprecated topic thread https://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/90246-the-comprehensive-kerbal-archive-network-ckan-package-manager-v1180-19-june-2016/&tab=comments instead of the new one https://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/154922-ckan-the-comprehensive-kerbal-archive-network-v1270-bussard/

You might want to update it.

well I manually erased the old duplicates and took the new ones, unsure if that will bork any updated version.

well it does work properly so far, one thing I still notice: If the ARP is bound to stock resources button then the GUI is visible if it were visible on last scene. I guess it should just hide if bound to KSP resource button and on scene load.

it got stuck - happens sometimes when adopting a mod in this manner. should be clearing up. @HebaruSan ?

My apologies. @TriggerAu has updated the original and has been most gracious with my overstepping.

Both the Spacedock and Curseforge entries have been deleted. GitHub has been archived, and will be fully deleted in the next couple of days.
