Kerbal Space Program 1.11: "Some Reassembly Required" Grand Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

Gear up Kerbonauts, engineers are required for some in situ reassembling! Stack up your inventory with parts and tools in order to prepare for any contingencies. With a reimagining of the game’s inventory system and the introduction of a new EVA construction mode, KSP is here with new content for everyone! 

Kerbal Space Program 1.11: Some Reassembly Required is the game’s latest major free update and with it, we’re adding some significant and game changing elements that give players added flexibility and a more immersive KSP experience. Pack an inventory for your missions and modify your crafts or even assemble a new vehicle on the spot with the help of your engineers, or bring an EVA Science Experiment Kit and have your Kerbals undertake fun animated experiments. In addition to some new parts, visual enhancements, and some bug-fixing, Some Reassembly Required continues to enrich the KSP experience.

Let’s go through some of the update’s highlights below:

EVA Construction Mode

This mode gives your engineers tools similar to what you find in the VAB/SPH to manipulate parts in their inventory or within their range while on EVA in any location. Need to make some adjustments to your Vallerian SSTO, or build an improvised Munar rover in situ? Now you can!

Inventory System Changes

This update expands upon the inventory system and gives it deeper meaning and functionality! These changes include the option to carry and stack various parts in your craft’s inventory and adds to the ability of Kerbals to carry an inventory of their own. All while making it easier to get access to and  manage all of the inventories on a craft. Just remember to think wisely on what you want to bring with you on a mission…

New Lights and RCSs

Some Reassembly Required adds new lights parts to the game, including some smaller, physics-less lights as well as a couple of deployable lights that work without the need for an attached craft or EC power source. And not only that, two new smaller Reaction Control Systems are being added to the part repertoire!  These smaller RCS are perfect to make your probes, drones or smaller crafts more mobile and versatile.

Joolian Moons’ Visual Improvements

With this update, we will continue with the overhauling of the rest of the Joolian satellite system with Bop, Vall and Tylo. These moons have been popular destinations for intrepid space explorers and now they will look better than ever before, with high-quality texture and graphic shaders. 

And more!

To learn more you can read the full Changelog here:

As with every release this thread will be used to bundle all general discussion about the new version so that the forums can continue to actively host threads on other topics as well. CLICK HERE for the official release announcement for Kerbal Space Program 1.11: Some Reassembly Required.

Happy launchings!

What does the "Persist Kerbal Inventory Loadout" setting do when starting a new game?


I assume it has something to do with this line:

 Inventory system is now persisted as a list of protoparts instead of a comma-separated string of names. The old system is still there for compatibility, but the new one is preferred.

Based on the wording I assume for a new game I want to have that checked by default to use the new system. As an FYI it is unchecked by default.

EDIT: See answer by Rafa below.

And just two goddamn days after I put the latest version of my interplanetary science vessel in orbit AND fueled it up in a separate mission! Now I gotta start over to take the new features into account in the design...

* Amended dV and orbit calcs to use Double precision.

Does that mean ship trajectories no longer lose long-range encounters when I engage warp?! :D

* Craft file name is now independent of command pod vessel naming, preventing accidental overwrites when re-naming command pods.

Nice!

Fuel transfer bugfix finally?

* Fix the kerbal ladder sliding.

ohhhh that's nice, I just tested and seems to work

Quote

* Fix LFB KR 1x2 'Twin Boar' off placed surface attach underneath.

Don't know what's meant here - diameter still doesn't match other 2.5m parts, second line no idea what that means

These might be my two favorite changes. They were years in the waiting!

Whatever your Kerbals have in their inventory will persist through recoveries. Default equipment is jetpack and parachute, let's say you replace those with a battery and a barometer, If you don't place or remove those two parts from their inventory, when you recover them they will have those in their inventories, if you remove the parts and recover them, they will appear with an empty inventory.

If you leave that option unchecked, they will always get their default equipment ( jetpack and parachute) back when recovered.

Thank you for the clarification. :)

I think I've found a bug - the welding animation doesn't play when attaching parts via nodes.

It's very minor as the actual attachment works fine.

The animation runs depending on the position of the engineer.  Sometimes it won't run since the laser would be obstructed by something else.

Nice! That'll make landing at anomalies much less annoying! ;)
