A new update for KSP Enhanced Edition is live!


Recommended Posts

Hello Kerbonauts! 

A new update for Kerbal Space Program Enhanced Edition is live! 

This update includes a number of quality-of-life-features , including the ability to seamlessly switch between the SPH and the VAB without leaving the editor, plus a Maneuver Widget for fine tuning maneuvers during interplanetary flights.  Console players  have  now also access to Camera Mode, which allows to take cool screenshots without the UI showing up and the ability to move the camera around when the game is paused in flight. A good deal of fixes has also been packed into this update, and for Breaking Ground players we have included the R-062, R-12 and R-25 Ducted Fan Blades to the part inventory. 

Check out this patch's Changelog for further details:

Two things we've been asking for for a while now, I'm glad it finally happened for us. Now I can take good pics of my craft.... And also use the ducted fans.One thing I haven't checked to see if it was fixed was the KAL-1000 and Prop issues I was encountering. I was unable toget the prop above 60m/s with an insane amount of drag and weight to the front. My craft would flip over when I launched it, and the RPMs got up to about 10 and stayed there. I cliped in a panther with after burner on and struggle to stay above stall.

Another thing that we wanted ever since you could leave fairings open.

No more need for the Mun Launch site.

@UomoCapra will you guys take the launch site out now that we can teleport our crafts, or will that be something you will give to PC as well??

Thanks guys. The thing I´m most excited about and that is indeed working (just tested) is the landers not jumping anymore when loading them. That was pretty much the last remaining big pain in the a.. for me.

I can get back to my "blades instead of wings" project that were hard to control.

Would there be more symetry mode for blades that are not supouse to serve as blades but as wings?
