[1.7.1][1.8.1][1.9.1][1.10.1] Persistent Thrust Extended 1.7.5 (now with background persistent thrust)


Recommended Posts

Persistent Thrust Extended is a plugin that allows you to use your engines during timewarp, allowing you to speed up a burn that would take days down to a few seconds.

Ever had to make a burn that required several minutes or longer at high physics warp but it still took too long? Want to maximize your deltaV but don't want to spend hours performing a burn? now you can with Persistent Thrust. All you need to do is set the SAS mode, set throtle and activate timewarp (upper left of screen) 

I have adopted this mod from @mrsolarsail and is developed with help of @Standecco

I also would like to thank @HoneyFox for developing Orbital Manipulator Series for his pioneer work

Exactly what part is that?

MRK capsule of KNES  has the same bug

The plumes are emitted by the embedded re-entry engines.

Doesn't it work already? I guess it doesn't . I will look into it but no promises

Mod works in 1.8.1 , but no plume-Exhaust

No exhaust at all or only not during timewarp?

No exhaust  only  during timewarp. (I talk about Real Engine Pack mod. Vanilla game and your mod work perfectly)

I'm guessing this is still compatible with solarsailnavigator? :) 

*edit

in the current version it seems solar sail navigator is entirely borked. Last I checked it still worked barely, but I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. Might attempt a recompile if I get the time

wow you made me interested in playing kerbal again. will play with this later. gotta get the old ion horse out of the hanger. now i need to come up with a biker themed space suit.

I'm getting a bug where its triggering the 'propellant depleted' dropout when propellant is most certainly not depleted. Still trying to track down the exact cause but it seems to be related to having multiple persistent engines active during high time warp.

Another fun one, is the vessel being pulled out of timewarp from very high timewarp levels seems to smear it across the fabric of spacetime in a spectacular explosion.
