DROMOMAN - modular arm parts for Infernal Robotics

Recommended Posts

I've tried that, but the parts aren't showing in the R&D still

You just need to add some lines in the config to make them work with R&D

TechRequired = actuators

Add that under editor parameters tab in the config to all the parts that are missing and they should show up :)

Iv been having a few issues with this mod. I did the CFG edit and that worked fine. couldnt find the magnetic end (just downloaded KAS) but my biggest issue now is that the servos arent there. i can build the arm but the controls are missing. what am i doing wrong here?

Dsnydmiller,

Welcome to the forums! This mod doesn't provide a magnetic end. AFAIK, only KAS and the IR Rework do.

As for the servos not showing up, please read the last 10 or so posts. You'll find the fixes described there.

I would love to have this parts working independently of third pard mods, they are the pretty and coolest ones.

Nothke did a great job.

And too have it on .24.2 officially.

:D

Is this mod dead?
I'm gonna ask the same question.

This is still functional, you just have to do some adjustments.

See Post #192 for compatibility with newer version of InfernalRobotics and #201 for TechTree integration.

I still use them often in KSP 0.25.

*edit

I don't know about the license of this mod, if it's allowed to post a fully updated download.

That would make things easier.

Would love to see this mod updated.

I applied the changes to make it compatible with new Infernal Robotics, but some of the hinges seem to be orienting on the wrong axis.

I just changed the configs of the mumechservo parts as described and everything shows up in game, however the rotohubs and rotact move on the wrong axis (the parts itself rotate in it´s attachment node, not only the part of it that is supposed to). Has anyone a hint for me how to solve this ?

You'll have to import the models into Blender and reorient them, then export them back to Unity.

Note that the orientation issue only affects the parts in the VAB/SPH, not in flight (though another known issue affects both).

Hi there!

I have repacked the mod to be functional with Magic Smoke Industries Infernal Robotics - 0.19.3 and KSP 0.9.

Also, I have added a CC BY-SA 4.0 license to it:

This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.

- You must credit Nothke, when publishing your derivatives.

- Note that this mod does NOT contain, and the licence does NOT cover requirement plugins (be it Damned Robotics or Infernal Robotics)

Also, I will probably not develop/support this mod anymore, but anyone is free to take over =)

Also, there is an awesome IR model rework that has the same functionality as Dromoman and is actively developed and supported.

Check the OP for more info

You realize there are half a dozen mods that do something like this (most abandoned, it would seem  though)?

@Stone Blue you could try RKE_Kanadarm, I have it load just fine in my 1.0.5; requires Infernal Robotics to work. Not to be confused with the Canadarm mod, which I had some issues with.

Also, on a slightly unrelated note, I've seen you in this position before...like a lot. I spend a lot of time looking through old mods and you always seem to be the last kerbonaut at the finish line as it were (not trying to be cheeky, honest:)). One thing that helped me a lot was learning about the Kerbal Stuff torrent.

Hope that helps some.

So some preliminary testing would suggest that this mod is still compatible with 1.0.5, after a fashion. However, currently the parts have no Tech Requirement or Entry Cost making them a problem for Career games. I wrote an (untested) MM patch, down below. I also included the Cost field, in case you want to edit that to something more appropriate as well (all parts are currently already set to 50 in their respective configs). I've only tooled around with it in the VAB; all parts rotated successfully, as expected.

After playing with it for a bit, I decided to check my log before giving it a clean bill of health. It turns out, it may throw a rare "KeyNotFoundException" which I included below for the curious. Not sure what it means, something about Vertices, might be completely normal, and only happened 3 times (out of 300 entries) within 15minutes of play with no discernible effects ingame.

Also, the pictures seem to indicate it includes an end effector. It does not. It only includes some rotator hubs, a static hub, and some arm pieces.

Cheers.

The untested patch, if you want it still, public domain, not liable, change fields accordingly to taste.
