KSP Loading...: Kerbal engineers are stepping up their game!


Recommended Posts

This thing is coming tomorrow on PC. Console: 5 years (maybe I’m guessing, this is kinda sad because I play on console)

 

Please! Can console players get this update soon! Cause I’m not sure if its fair when console guys have to wait a year or so for an update. But maybe I’m not seeing the big picture. :/

 

Can this time the console players get this update a moth or 3 after or soon?

We are adding repair kits, a new cargo part which engineers use to repair breakable parts on site, including deployable solar panels, antenna, wheels, radiators, robot arms, etc.

Wait. Robot Arms? Is this referring to the breaking ground parts? (Do those even break right now?) Or are we getting some new robot arms? Perhaps to facilitate larger scale building than what a Kerbal alone can do?

No, it's a list of breakable/repairable part types.

Yeah, I got that. Just curious if these apparently breakable robot arms are the breaking ground scanner arms (I haven't used them enough to see if they are breakable) or something else.

 

Also, impressive reply time.

They are indeed referring to the Breaking Ground robot scanner arms.

Updates to console games afaik must meet certain guidelines and the like established by the companies responsible for said consoles. That means updates for consoles take longer. Im sure i have missed much more but again afaik ive hit on at least a bit of why it takes longer.

I wonder if they remember these forums exist

...posted in the official thread for the update that was posted by a member of "they," on the same page as a post from a member of "they." :D

Unless the active vessel is an EVA kerbal and that kerbal has a new trait that is required. Then you are unable to enter EVA construction mode.

...for now.

There's also the fact that other company is working on PS4 edition. Which is based on pc edition most likely, not developed in parallel.

Huh? Squad, Take Two and Intercept are the only companies I am aware of that are doing ksp or ksp2 console or pc. Of whom do you speak? More importantly is this other company working with TT’s legal blessing?

Blitworks are the ones that adjust the updates for console.

That name sounds familiar.... still doesn't change the red tape that they must clear. That still takes time.

I’m sorry, but do you need to ask this between every PC update? Blitworks ports the game to console, and there is absolutely no expectation that they would work on the same timeline as squad... while I’d love to get this update as soon as possible (I am also a console player), the greater issue is stability... between the last couple updates, I tended to get more bugs, not less... so if the extra time helps squash some of those bugs, especially the ones that corrupt saves, I’d be all for the wait.

 

Also, we just got the “shared horizons,” and “moar booster” parts, and whatever update the drain valve was in... we also recently got the “maneuver mode” feature... i, too, would love more part, but be happy with all of the new stuff we just got.

You’re right. I guess I’m a little impatient.

There is so much content in this next release. Really should be a paid DLC. I would have no problems forking up a little $ for this next release.

Ssshhhhhhh.... The marketing dept are probably reading this.

I have a feeling some of this stock functionality they have been implementing lately will play into their next DLC in a much more massive way, but they need it in the base game first to iron out the details/bugs.
