nobody44 Posted June 4, 2013 Share Posted June 4, 2013 (edited) Hello,I would like to present my new plugin: Mission Controller, currently in *ALPHA STAGE*.Keeps track of your budget and missions.Once you launch a vessel, you have to pay for the vessel (for its construction, fuel and other materials).When you finish a mission or a mission goal you get a reward.There are different mission goals like a certain orbit, a certain landing spot on a celestial body and others. You can mix those mission goals together, for example: Create a manned LKO refuel station with at least 1000 units of liquid fuel.Want to create your own missions? Here is a small guide: Introduction and mission packages.And here is the flight of Sputnik finishing one of the few currently available missions (I am focussing on the code, not on the missions for now). The video is old but it shows the principle... If you don't want to watch a video, here are some screenshots:Newest Changes (0.10):balancing... nothing moreChanges in version 0.9: fixed difficulty reset after restarting the game new icons from bac9 added new mission field: repeatableSameVessel for client controlled and passive missions reworked costs (no construction costs because they are too different for different addons) new Duna missionChanges in version 0.8: added kerbonaut insurance costs (for each kerbal) which is configurable in the settings gui. The users gets those expenses back when he lands on Kerbin and recycles the manned vessel. Default is 0... added three difficulities, which define the costs for rockets and stuff. Reworked the whole forumlars used to calculate all costs removed recycle option on other planets then Kerbin fixed recycle option: ends the flight now reworked stock mission package fixed a nasty bug caused by KSPAbout the insurance costs: Basically when you launch a vessel you pay for each Kerbonaut, say 100000 krones. You won't get those krones back unless you land back on Kerbin and recycle the vessel. You get 100% back (splashed or landed does not matter). This should make manned missions more dangerous and finally you have to use launch escape systems. End flight or anything that will not recycle the vessel, won't get you the krones back.I am thinking about the balancing and if you don't like the current balance, please let my know and post in this thread. Actually, I like the current method a lot more than the old method, but if you, the users, think that I am wrong, please let me know . But first try the new version.The problem with the old balancing: Most mods, and I mean really *most* mods, do not balance their costs, because it is difficult and had no purpose. With the old method some overpowered engines were just really cheap. With the current method the addon developers don't need to balance their parts in that regard, because I use a formular to calculate that for them. The downside of the current approach is, that it is not possible to create a part that is expensive because of technology / whatever used in that part. I could fix this by creating a separate list that defines the costs for some parts.DOWNLOAD FROM MEDIAFIREDOWNLOAD FROM GOOGLE DRIVEInstallation and usage:Extract the archive into the GameData directoryPress on the "MC" icon on the bottomSelect the mission packagePreview the missions and select a missionFinish the missionMission packages:NT Space Program from NoJebYour mission package missing?
