Hi does anyone have a recent picture from Agena Target Vehicle and his launcher? I have a little bit difficulty to build it

Hi, apologies if this has already been asked in this thread, but does anyone know if there is a way to disable the Apollo CSM reflections in the VAB and flight? I don't have a particularly powerful PC and they make KSP much more laggy, especially in the VAB.

Thanks!

I don't see the plugin in the download anymore but if you can edit a cfg your looking for the MODULE[ReflectiveShaderModule] or you might be running some cfg the using TextureReplacer if that's the case your looking for MODULE[TRReflection] you could write a MM to delete both if there found hope it helps

    MODULE
    {
        name = ReflectiveShaderModule
        // Lower values for performance, higher values for aesthetics (you shouldn't ever need to go higher than 1024).
        CubeMapSize = 8
        // How deep the reflection will be ("how far the reflection camera will view")
        FarClipPlane = 500000000
  // How far away must something be before it is reflected
  NearClipPlane = 2
        // Set to false to render all 6 faces of the CubeMap at once (six times slower~)
        OneFacePerFrame = true

  realTimeReflection = False

        ParallaxHeight = 0.01
        // How reflective the reflection will be (Weakest 0.0 - 1.0 Strongest).
        ReflectionStrength = 0.25
  //ReflectionColor = 0, 0, 0, 0
        // Use this variable to specify which meshes to apply the shader to.
        // Not using this variable will default to the first found mesh.
        // Use the actual mesh name for the value. Or you could use:
        // all - to replace the shader on all meshes in the model.
        MeshesToChange = EngineBits
        // How shiny the specularity will be (if specular).
        // This value will be automatically set if it already exists on the previous shader and is not defined here.
        Shininess = 1.0
  updateRate = 42
        // These variables should be used together only.
        // These values will be automatically set if they already exist on the previous shader and are not defined here
        SpecColorR = 0.8
        SpecColorG = 0.8
        SpecColorB = 0.8
        SpecColorA = 0.8
  rimFalloff = 5.0
  rimColor = 0.8242, 0.6445, 0.1914, 1.0
  ReflectionColor = 0.6242, 0.6445, 0.69, 1.0

To clarify, I should just delete all the text you put in the hidden contents section?

Yes delete or //  in font of all of it

EDIT- Do you have a plugin folder in side the FASA folder ?

could you add craft files? i really find it difficult to assemble each ship by hand

I've been playing with the old craft files and they largely still seem to work with a bit of tweaking.

That plugin has been broken since 1.0.5 and was replaced with texture replacer. You need to download it separately. If anyone still has a plugin folder in their game they are using a very old version of FASA which will DEFINITELY break any newer versions of the game. Any version that contains this plugin is before the collider changes so all the parts with concave colliders will also be broken. There will be no support for old versions of the mod.

Is the reflection of the Gemini short/medium and large tank broken? Only the Atlas Maintank has reflection.

@gc1ceo thats awesome you have the old craft files working  if its not to much to ask would you mind sharing them at all please 

I have taken the craft files and put them in a separate RAR file, I have to stress that I did some tweaking to get them to work and I'm not entirely sure everything works as intended.

The umbilical clamps don't pump fuel after turning on the launch pad. Any idea what might cause that? I have a ton of MODs so that may have something to do with it. I was just curious if there was a common reason why this happens? I was thinking maybe I need to research something in the tech tree? Thanks.

Pumping fuel isn't a standard function of launch clamps. It would be added by another mod - Real Fuels for example.

Edit: I was mistaken - see below.

Do you mean umbilical clamps or towers? The towers produces LFO and electrical power and add it to the tanks. There is no other mod needed.

None of the Antennas from FASA are working and they have no Additional Info to show their range and electrical consumption. I'm using RemoteTech as well.

Is anyone else experiencing this? I'm going to do further testing later today and will post an update if no one else knows.

The OP says to delete MM configs if not running RO.  Which MM configs need to be deleted?

Also, I see that the launch tower can have quite a number of kerbals, but how are they accessed on the launch pad, other than by doing a crew transfer?  Is it possible to see them doing something inside the tower?

There's no IVA unfortunately but there is a crew hatch at the tower end of the gantry so that you can EVA your Kerbals and have them walk across to board the capsule.

I can't EVA them because there are no crew portraits

Hover your mouse where the "crew hatch" tooltip appears then left-click. A dialog will appear with EVA and Transfer options.

This is a stock function that should work with any crew hatch.

For Remote tech users: v.1.8.6. (for RSS\RO\1.2.2) has the error in syntax in FASA antennas config:

after @PART[FASAMercruyCap2] first bracket is not closed, so none of FASA antennas works.

There's a typo, an extra "}", in the .cfg files for the Launch Clamp 1.25m and Launch Clamp 2.5m that removes their MODULEs ModuleGenerator and ModuleTestSubject.  The extra "}" is between the text for MODULE LaunchClamp and MODULE ModuleGenerator for both.

Note: the copies of those 2 files here still have the typo "}" in them.

The typos have likely been around a while as they also exist in another copy I have of FASA Launch Clamps from 2016 December.
