NathanKell Posted July 29, 2021 Share Posted July 29, 2021 Procedural Parts allows you to procedurally generate a number of different parts in a range of sizes and shapes. The parts are fully tweakable with multiple options for customization of the shape, surface texture, and other parameters. The KSP-RO group is now maintaining Procedural Parts, with contributions from various members of that organization. Thanks to everyone currently contributing, and the legacy stretching all the way back to swamp_ig! Download - or install via CKAN! Report Bugs Source Features The features include Everything accessible by tweaking A broad range of shapes including cylinders, truncated cones, filleted cylinders, bezier cones. New part shapes are easy to develop and plug in, so cuboid / pill shaped / whatever else you want shaped will be able to be created. Most stuff configurable in the config file, including resources and fill ratios, tech levels, available shapes Diverse support for career mode - tank shapes, dimensions, and contents all limited by researched tech. This uses the stock Upgrades system, so if you are playing sandbox, make sure you choose to enable all upgrades in sandbox in your difficulty settings! All supplied parts are carefully designed to be as 'stock alike' as possible in their tech level requirements - You can't create a monster tank before you've discovered basic rocketry for example. Other mod support - tanks for RealFuels, Kethane, Extraplanetary Launchpads, etc. Fully recolarable via Textures Unlimited Plays nicely with Ferram Aerospace Research Multiple textures available for part surfaces. These are fully compatible with StretchySRB textures. A Module - TankContentSwitcher that can be applied to existing tanks (with say module manager) and allow their contents to be tweaked. Tweak any tank in the VAB into a Liquid fuel only or oxidizer tank. Parts available Tanks Different parts supplied for different 'groups' of fuels (Liquid fuels, SRBs, Monoprop, Xenon). The multiple part approach is to allow for tech limiting of sizes and volumes. SRBs Tweakable thrust (or burn time for real fuels). Tweak between a choice of two bells that are designed for surface or vacuum, with varying ISPs. Decoupler Tweakable diameters (with tech defined limits), ejection impulse, and can be in either decoupler or separator mode (again tech dependent). Structural Part Good for fuselage, adapters, whatever. Half as light as the equivalent tank. Batteries It's a bit rough and ready, but it works well enough. Nose Cone Specialized structural part for nose cones. The shape is limited to a smooth cone with a bounded ratio of diameter to length. Heat Shield Installation CKAN installation is preferred, but for a manual install download the latest release zip and merge its GameData with yours. Custom Textures and Texture Packs Procedural Parts is compatible with all texture packs for StretchySRBs. It's easy to roll your own texture packs too. Look for texture packs on CKAN, there are many awesome ones! Integration with Real Fuels and Modular Fuel Tanks Integration with Real Fuels and Modular Fuels Tanks is complete. Ensure you have Real Fuels version 6.1 or newer, and Modular Fuel Tanks 5.0.1 or newer. There's one or two bugs still to get through, stay tuned for updates on those two. For MFT, the existing tank types are turned into the corresponding MFT type. For RealFuels, there's an SRB which can be switched between low altitude and high altitude versions, plus a tank which can be switched between the various RF tank types. Acknowledgements ProceduralParts has an extended family tree StretchyTanks is the original module by the great Ancient Gammoner. StretchySRBs was created and updated by NathanKell and e-dog. ProceduralParts is a near complete re-write by Swamp Ig. ProceduralParts was then maintained by NathanKell, RadarManFromTheMoon, Starwaster, and TidalStream in succession. ProceduralParts is now maintained by the KSP-RO group, with contributions from many members. Also featuring Models by Tiberion Further textures by Chestburster and Dante80.
