Firespitter propeller plane and helicopter parts v7.1 (May 5th) for KSP 1.0

Recommended Posts

For Firespitter core you need following files in directory "..\GameData\Firespitter\Plugins\":

  • Firespitter.dll
  • Firespitter.dll.mdb
  • Firespitter.pdb

Last two files might not be necessary, those are used for debuging purposes, but I can't tell 100% for sure, so better to include those too. From downloaded archive you will find those files in direcory: "..\For release\Firespitter\Plugins\"

In directory "..\GameData\Firespitter\Resources\" you only need one file:

  • Firespitter.cfg

That one can be found in downloaded arcchive folder: "..\For release\Firespitter\Resources\"

Latest available Firespitter release can be found on github links in OP, or from few posts above:  Firespitter 7.13.0.

The mdb and the pdb are the databases used for debugging the DLLs and they are somewhat useless without the debugger - that by its turn is only really useful when you use it on DLLs compiled in debug mode. Something that, ideally, we should avoid on deliverables. I have terrible memories from MFC on this. :D

So, unless you are debugging things, I'm prone to advise to get rid of *.mdb and *.pdb from your installment. My rationale is that if you are in need of debugging the thing, you should do it using the IDE and the get the source files to be compiled on your rig.

On deliverables without the source code available, that files would make some sense on the distribution - but such Add'On is not allowed here under Forum rules. And yet, they can be available on a separate download intended to the small fraction of users in need to use them instead of spamming the files for everybody.

As a example, the current firespitter DLL has a size of 232.448.  The mdb (access data file? :P ) has 112.726 and the PDB 433.664 . The debugging info are somewhat twice the size of the DLL itself. So only 1/3 of that payload is, effectively, needed and useful for the end users.

I've fixed it!!

1. Download latest version of Firespitter file from Github.

2. Search the cache of CKAN for the corrupt file and copy the name.

3. Rename the downloaded file and move it to the cache folder.

4. Overwrite the corrupted file and install Firespitter from the cache.

It works for me!!

Yep, I thought that those are not necessary, I never used those, my prefered method of debuging is as you mentioned, with proper IDE and sorce code. However, for some reason, mdb and pdb files were included in CKAN install and since @RoverDude maintain his own CKAN files, I was not sure if those were necessary or not. I'm not messing with .NET on daily basis, so can't tell for sure about it.

Thanks for clarification on this topic.

im looking for some tutorials on creating firespitter parts (like helicopter rotors) in unity- eg. objects placement, rotation, hierarchy.

I've been running into an issue with 1.8 where I get stuck on Verifying Expansion: Breaking Ground right at the end of the load screen. I was able to narrow it down to the Firespitter Core module, but that's about as far as I got. If there's anything else I can do to get you more information let me know.

I can confirm this as well.  Not finding a defined error in the log either to show where it's messing up.
