[WIP] Nert's Dev Thread - Current: guess I'm working on Fast Fourier Transforms again


Recommended Posts

In the past, Kopernicus planets have not had any troubles being targeted by third party mods like EVE for feature configs. I'd be willing to bet that, as long as resources can be assigned via MM patch, it will work just fine.

That model looks quite good.  I could see the benefit of having a set of configs similar to Rational Resources that could be used as a base to distribute the resources to planet pack mods.

Looking at those resource detectors, and your modelling & texturing work is top-notch as always! I'm assuming that (in reference to the first viewpoint) the right-hand one is a "shielded" variant of the left-hand one? If so, is there going to be a gameplay difference between the two (such as drag values, etc), or is it simply cosmetic?

Just cosmetic, though drag might be a little better due to how it's usually calculated.

I will provide configs for the stock system and the resources I 'manage' or are stock (that probably means Oxidizer, LqdMethane, ArgonGas, XenonGas, LqdHydrogen, LqdHe3, LqdDeuterium). It should be fairly easy to propagate those as planet pack authors might wish.

Resources are organized into Bands which sit around planets. These bands have shapes defined by distributions - I've written a new distribution specification system that expands on what stock provides. It is now possible to specify much more interesting distributions, like rings, shells, atmospheres... etc. It's also expandable with more distribution types as needed later. 

Would shapes like Kerbalism radiation belts be possible? That is, an elliptical toroid with another one cut out of it.

No, but you could write a Distribution Model to do that, it is pretty simple, you just need to be able to represent distribution by some function of altitude, latitude and longitude.

Simply awesome as always! I love the resource design you are implementing from the 3 tiers of scanning/sampling to how each has a shape distribution associated with them. Can't wait to see how you progress the system and eventually when I will be able to play with it. Glad I upgraded my PC to handle more mods :)

Ooof this is the last time I develop 4 mods at once.

Status update

  • SystemHeat is almost at beta state, I have one model to finish and some balance things to test but we're mostly good. 
  • Waterfall is almost at release state.
  • SpaceDust is getting... there. Some things are taking longer. First alpha of FFT will probably only ship with discovery, not harvesting.
  • FFT itself is pretty solid. I'm leaving out one planned engine from the alpha test, but the rest are all set. 

So, I hope to get something in front of testing by late next week.

I assume FFT will depend on the previous three?

And which engine'd that be?

And 2020 just got that much better!

That's what you said last time... :D

But this is so much worse, it is 3 interrelated plugins!

Some new stuff:

Finishing work on integrating this engine.

I finished off the atmospheric scooper dealie too. A fun feature it has is different intake model options, which are effective at different speeds.

And the new nuclear smelter:

Nuclear smelter? Does that process nuclear fuels, or smelt normal stuff with the power of a nuclear reactor? Or both?

Well, assuming it stays more or less the same as it is in the old version of FFT, it will also be able to make ablator for engines that uses it for propulsion. But, overall, yes, it is used to extract nuclear fuel for ore. Or process depleted fuel into some still-usable enriched uranium (or xenon gas).

Nuclear Smelter eh? Sounds like something Peter Dinklage would use to forge physics defying hammers. Nertea dude, if your next mod release doesn't include models of Storm Breaker and Mjolnir I'm gonna be really disappointed! :sticktongue:

you forgot to update the roadmap

is spacedust separated mods (I know if it's true we need make our own harvester anyway)? Does it work with all Community Resource Pack resource if we want our own "dust" around the bodies? Can we add our own resource like endless space dust?
