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:


=================================== v1.11.0 ============================================================

* Revamped Vall! It now has a low, medium and high quality shaders as well as a new scaled space textures.
* Revamped Tylo! It now has a low, medium and high quality shaders as well as a new scaled space textures.
* Revamped Bop! It now has a low, medium and high quality shaders as well as a new scaled space textures.
* Launchclamps will now default to the earliest stage on a craft.

Kerbal Space Program 1.11: Some Reassembly Required is now available on Steam and will soon be available on GOG and other third-party resellers. You will also be able to download it from the KSP Store if you already own the game.

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!

WE COULD JUST PACK SOME STUFF TO MAKE ROVERS! AND ACTULKY BIULD ROVERS ON THE DESINATED PLANET OF MOON! WE DONT HAVE TO PACK ROVERS! ONG, ROVER PARTS, AND WE BIULT THEM THEIR!

And we could buy it bases with this! Or make orbital shipyard and biuld ships in space!

We cold make  another VAB on Val or Laythe and biuld Rocket their! All

 all parts come in cargo and we could biuld ships!

AND 1.11 WILL COME TO CONSOLES IN ANOTHER BIG PATCH FAR FROM NOW!

MATT LOWNE AND OTHER KSP YOUTUBERS WILL FINALLY GET SOME GOOD CONTENT!

AND NEW THINGS CAN BE BIULT!

THE SKY ISNT THE LIMIT, NEITHER SPACE! ITS OUR IMAGINATION!

AND THE CRAZY THING IS! I JUST CANT WAIT! IM SO EXCITED!

Got a message when loading that said Mech Jeb wasn't compatible.  Only one of my 8 or so mods that complained.

That would probably be miniAVC which has no idea whether or not Mech Jeb won't work, and just claims incompatibility because MechJeb isn't listed as being compatible with 1.11 yet, which in turn is probably only because the mod maker hasn't gone and verified compatibility yet. It may actually work fine.

Mentioning it here for awareness :

https://bugs.kerbalspaceprogram.com/issues/26860

Doing the following :

  • In the editor, grab a part from the part list, or grab an already placed part
  • Put it into a stock inventory
  • Put it back in the editor

Results in KSP to forget to enable all partmodules on the part (it doesn't set MonoBehaviour.enabled = true), causing any Start()/Update()/FixedUpdate() code to not run.

I think this one has them all beat:

* Don't put parachutes in the first (launchpad) stage by default.

 

We're all gonna have to unlearn checking our staging now... :D

2 viable replies:

  1. There are plenty of reasons to keep checking staging.
  2. Like I ever learned to check my staging.

:D

hi ! 

testing now !

the launcher do nothing, after some setting adjustment and apply, click on accept do nothing !!

ksp 1.11 with the french language patch and breaking ground and making history french exe.

steph.

The launcher 'Launcher.exe' has never worked for me, and I have never heard anyone who found out how to make it work.  KSP.exe works for me.

=============

The default key to activate EVA construction mode is I

For those of us who use IJKL (the RCS keys) for Kerbals on EVA, the key seems like a good choice to replace I for construction mode.  (The more obvious C for construction toggles angle-snap.)

Oh kopernicus is updated already????

Yes, it's beta, but it is.

Actually was a pretty easy update from our perspective, but we don't mess with inventories much, so...

So I once again have a comment about lights after setting up more navlights.

It would be really nice for an outline to be around the currently selected color on lights so you don't need to turn them on and off to check the color.

For night-time flying, I'm definitely going to be keeping my lights on, but the landing gear light behavior is so jarring I almost don't want to.  When retracted, gear lights shine through the plane, and if the plane is flying inverted, they show up on the ground below.  Landing gears really need to have their lights automatically turn off if retracted.

I guess you can put all the lights except the landing gear to an action group for a temp fix.

Anyone else getting an input lock + console flooded with null reference exceptions if you try to construct using a kerbal holding onto a ladder? Just playing around on the launchpad so far and ran into that

 

*Edit

Seems to only happen if you build directly after exiting the lander can. Pretty strange bug

I dont know if im doing something wrong or not but i just cant get them in my game.

If you are talking about planet textures, make sure you have terrain shaders set to 'Ultra' in your KSP graphics settings.

Edited by OrdinaryKerman
Clarify which textures I'm talking about (part or planet textures)

It's not really the focus of this update, but I have a question about the Flag selection Menu.

I see that it changed and now has 2 extra categories (Agencies and Organisations).
Would it be possible to make custom Flag categories (assuming there is more necessary than just making another folder, which i already tried)or are we limited to the 3 we have now?

hate to bother everyone with a bug complaint BUT the lab module is no longer solid (the ladder is solid tho)

I am using restock so after school (6 hours) I will make an edit to see weather or not its just the mod glitching.

Define “solid”.

hello !

i have a bug with flag in eva : bug tracker

 

kerbal moves forward and knocks down the flag.

steph.

I had the same without any Kerbal at all. My science station on Vall I went to check to see the new textures, the flag fell down by itself on loading. (very slowly due to low gravity but still)
