Version v2.1.1 for Kerbal Space Program 1.12.3  Released on 2022-08-17

Bug Fixes

  • Issue 57 patch for Strategia support - fixed


Mostly Quality of Life stuff

  • Issue 52 - reward funds are now based on the Group variable rewardBaseValue If you alter this in the groups.cfg file it will adjust rewards across all contracts offered. Airports have an individual popularity rank that influences rewards payouts
  • Issue 53 - Layout of all flight contracts standardized. Air terminals are now named for their individual airports, a mission complete dialog has been added to airline flights
  • Issue 55 - Large flights of up to 80 passengers have been altered to require that the aircraft be made of large parts (mk3) instead. The passenger count has been reduced to 16. This should save a log of FPS on the PC.
  • Issue 56 - If you use USI Kolonization Systems (MKS/OKS), then on missions requiring specialized roles for passengers, some of these seats can alternatively be crewed by MKS kolonists. (ie. medics, geologists, etc. ).

Version v2.1.0 for Kerbal Space Program 1.12.1 Released on 2021-07-05

  • Enables continued support for KSC Extended V3.0 changes

Version v2.0.9 for Kerbal Space Program 1.12.0 Released on 2021-06-26

Bug Fixes

Version v2.0.8 for Kerbal Space Program 1.11.2 Released on 2021-06-01

Release candidates 1 & 2 to full release

  • Issue 44 - Adds patch for Strategia's Pilot Focus

  • plus some minor edits

Version v2.0.5 for Kerbal Space Program 1.11.2

Released on 2021-04-08

Bug Fixes

  • Issue 38 - UK missions conflict with mission starting parameters


  • Issue 39 - Additional Flight Plans

    • Baikerbanur ILS 20 (use at your own risk)
    • Island Airfield ILS 27

Version V2.0.4 for Kerbal Space Program 1.11.2  Released on 2021-03-23

Bug fixes

  • Issue 36 KSIS Cargo flight Dialogs with "UK Liaison" - Cosmetic fix, no game-play impact

  • Issue 37 VIK and Cargo Missions can't start - Game-play issue. Changed all launch parameters for starting at the KSC to the methods used for TKA flights. For some reason the ReachState prelaunch parameter that was working simply stopped working. This fix standardizes the method across all contracts

  • Deterministic Altitude settings for Issue 29 are working entirely inconsistently. I've corrected this in two ways;

    • Removing all TSA15 flights from normal contracts and making them separate under the KSIS agency and setting the altitude of the runways to 133 for way-points

    • Removing the Altitude look up method from a list and setting all other altitudes to zero for way-points. This makes the island airport markers appear underground, but the missions are still playable. I won't be trying to correct this anymore

Version v2.0.3 for Kerbal Space Program 1.11. Released on 2021-03-19


  • 34 Expeditions - the ground game

    • Missions offered by the Kerbin Geographical Organization

    • Initial mission is a three day camping trip near the KSC

    • Field expeditions are a 30 day research assignment in a random land biome of Kerbin followed by a collection of research findings. Mission rewards mostly Science.

    • Mountaineering is about climbing some of the tallest peaks on Kerbin. The first peak is a journey to Mt. Kaytoo (K2) near the KSC. Subsequent peaks are around the planet and over 6000 meters high. A special part called a Climbing Piton is added that allows a kerbal to scale a sheer rock face. Details available in the Wiki

  • 35 Navy Certification 1 cannot complete if the lvl2 VAB building is altered from Stock significantly.

    • removed the requirement to be "near" the waypoint marker for completion.


Version v2.0.2 for Kerbal Space Program 1.11.1 Released on 2021-02-11

    • New UK Mission to retrieve data from a downed aircraft. Uses EVA Construction or KIS mod to complete

    • wait for loading ramp to be deployed. Keeps terminal marker from disappearing too quickly

Tried Giving Aircraft a Purpose recently and really liked it, so happy to see you getting these contracts up and running as have finally gained an appreciation for aircraft in KSP. Just installed it, so will let you know if anything goes wrong or just continue to give a thumbs up on your next releases if everything is going well.

Flight advisory:

So a funny thing happened on the way to the south pole.... because the Kermundsen base there is in such close proximity to the pole and the in-flight headings actually "flip" during flight, the settings for the mods Kramax Autopilot Continued and NavUtilities continued  had to be fudge a bit. They sort of work, but the readouts they give while doing so often seem "reversed" .  Make sure your camera is set to chase as the auto setting follows the heading changes even though you are flying level and it's a bit disorienting.

Also, be warned, The Kraken lives here... things behave strangely and I've had planes simply fall out of the sky on approach.  

Your best bet is to fly under manual control and rely on visual positioning. RWY 19 is more forgiving than RWY 02 (and even these are fudged because for the majority of the inbound flight to both your heading is at 180 )

In play testing, the #3 missions requiring 12-80 passengers can be a little much early in the tech tree so they have been modified to require that  Heavy Aerodynamics  be researched before they become active. This works in Stock and Community Tech Tree career modes.

Actually: this will be changed to just the part MK3 Passenger Module part as this is the basic part to make a craft capable of flying up to 80 passengers, and it makes it compatible with pretty much any tech tree module.

First mod, first bug. :mad:

The logo in the Agencies,cfg file is incorrect. Everything still works but the logo appears all white in the contracts window [sigh]
The fix is already in GitHub if you want to go and get it manually. I'm checking out some other things first before I make a new release.
