[1.11.0-1.11.x] Fix for struts and fuel lines connected during EVA construction mode


Recommended Posts

KSP 1.11.x has a bug, that causes disconecting strut connectors and fuel lines connected during EVA construction mode after reloading save file. This is due to a wrong paring of MissionID and CraftID of the connector's target (the second end).

This mod work around that bug by changing MissionID of whole strut connector so both ends of strut connector has the same MissionID and KSP can connect it after loading a vessel.

Thanks to @dpirch  for finding easy fix by changing of MissionID,

Mod does two things:

  1. It fixes connector's MissionID instatnly when they are connected during EVA Construction mod
  2. After loading a save file and creating FlightGlobals (usually this is done when you start fly some vessel), it parse all "unloaded vessels" (=not actual flying vessel or nearby one) and tries to pair targets of strut connectors with a correspondig part. This can be done only when the target part's CraftId is unique for that vessel. For example when you will have two identical vessels docked together, all CraftIDs will be duplicated so correction cannot be done.

Thank you so much! I am constructing an interplanetary ship/space station and had problems keeping it stable while firing the engines. To solve that, I tried to add struts in EVA. But this didn't help because of that bug. Autostrut also didn't do very much so I had no idea how to fix it. Then I found this mod and it worked. This is exactly what I needed, thank you.
