[1.0.5] TAC Life Support v0.11.2.1 [12Dec]

Presenting Thunder Aerospace Corporation's Life Support system (TACLS)

Many Kerbal lives were bravely sacrificed to bring you the latest in biological needs.

The latest release is version 0.11.2.1 which works with KSP 1.0.5. Download below or read the release announcement. Upgrading from a previous version? Read this.

Having problems with this mod (or any others)? Read the [Official] How To Get Support and my Help page. I cannot do much to help without log files.

Features

  • Kerbals require resources to survive, whether in a vessel or on EVA: Food, Water, Oxygen, Electricity (for air quality and climate control)
  • Resources are needed all the time, even when flying another vessel, or sitting at the Space Center or Tracking Station.
  • Kerbals can die if they go without resources for too long. The defaults are: 360 hours without Food (60 Kerbin days/15 Earth days), 36 hours without Water, 2 hours without Oxygen, and 2 hours without Electricity.
  • Kerbals produce waste resources: Carbon Dioxide, Waste, and Waste Water. Currently Carbon Dioxide can be recycled into Oxygen, and Waste Water can be recycled into clean Water. Also can filter Oxygen out of IntakeAir, or split Water into Oxygen and Waste (hydrogen). A greenhouse part that allows growing Food is planned, but is not included yet.
  • Filling up with waste resources (Carbon Dioxide, Waste, Waste Water) has no effect. Any excess is dumped overboard, and you lose the opportunity to convert them back into good resources.

Is this mod still in active development, and is a new version being planned?  There seem to be a few balance problems or part statistics that don't make sense.  Are these intentional?

-Some of the recycling modules are insanely heavy; The 1.25m Carbon Extractor is 5 tons, which is 100x heavier than a battery of similar size!

-All of the radial Hex Cans sizes have the same volume (277L) when stored in KIS Kontainers.

-All of the radial Hex Cans seem to use the same model for placement when used with KAS.  Once they're anchored down then they show the proper size, but before they're anchored they all seem to use the Regular size model (Not sure if this is a KAS issue or a TAC issue)

As a general question, is any kind of a graphical/model update planned for any of the parts?  They're functional, but don't seem to fit well into the aesthetic of KSP.

it works in 1.1 or not?

Does not work in 1.1 at present. The resources show up in the parts, but they're not consumed and the toolbar buttons are missing. (I'm not sure if any mods that use that toolbar are working at present).

1.1 was released less than a day ago, and in every topic it's  "it works in 1.1 or not?".

Please be patient, this is not a minor update. If you want to keep using modded installs or careers, stick with 1.0.5 until 1.1 is released. All mods should be updated by that time. This is a time for bug fixing, not new career saves.

To be accurate, 1.1 isn't even an update.  It's an open pre-release beta.  Nobody should really even be using it unless they are trying to help bug test so squad CAN release a nice 1.1 version.

Actually, there are some 1.1 mod releases already so it's not an entirely unreasonable question to ask. KER, RealChutes, USI life support...

Roverdude is KSP staff ;) And you are replying to a topic from 3 days ago so no doubt updates are coming out.

Helps a little, but I was thinking something more structurally unique.  Like how Universal Storage's wedges are all plumbed uniquely and have very different looking containers for each of the resources.

I skimmed through this thread but couldn't find the answer to this question: is it possible to make a base/station self-sufficient with this mod? I'm using USI Life Support right now but I might switch over to TAC if this is possible.

Hello.
The short answer is   NO.

You can recycle things and generate oxygen and water, but you cannot make food as far as I know.
So you cannot be 100% self-sufficient.

HOWEVER when the mod load the very first time you can select how fast example food should be eaten and there you technical speaking can make the time extremly long so you in terory never need food.


But maybe there is some kind of mod that can work together with TAC and generate food for you..  I saw some nice base greenhouse somewhere that might work together with TAC life support... but im not 100% sure.

Hey yorshee,

Back in 1.0.5 I used Planetary Base Systems to produce food.  As I recall it also made substrate or whatever else it was that you needed to make the resources you need and recycle the wastes.  I haven't played in a while and started back up with 1.1, as this and Planetary Base Systems aren't compatible yet I am unable to double check that ability.  Here's the link to Planetary Base Systems, regardless.

@yorshee the Soylent mod adds a recycler based on algae microbiome arrays to TAC-LS - there is a link in my sig and the mod writeup discusses how 'realistic' the concept is.

Both UKS and MKS-Lite can also do self-sufficient bases (while USI-LS is the default, TAC-LS is supported as well)

You can get info on them (as well as the other USI mods) on the USI catalog page:  http://bobpalmer.github.io/UmbraSpaceIndustries/

That is good to know as I am using UKS and was on the verge of doing a lot of experiments to figure out if self sufficiency is even possible.

Hello Im using the Chaka Monkey mod and im finding that none of the added parts have TAC LS resources. This is off because MM_AddResources hasn't changed and this mod used to work perfectly with Chaka, someone please help!

So, does anyone know if a version for 1.1 is in the works ... or if the 1.0.5-Version is also compatible for KSP 1.1?

It's not compatible with 1.1. I haven't seen an indication it will be updated but seeing as its so popular I would be surprised if it wasnt

The Mod need a recompile and rework of the source code. No way to cheat the version file and no way to go with other modulemanager.

Many people hope that TaranisElsu update the mod next time. *wink* please :)
