[1.7.x] SDHI Service Module System (V4.0.2 / 15 April 2019)

Recommended Posts

V4.0.2 released - see first post for download link

4.0.2 - 15 April 2019
---------------------------

Changes / Fixes:
 - Compatibility Patch for KSP 1.7.x
 - Updated Service Module engine model, textures and emissive animations to match the new stock O-10 "Puff" rocket engine design

I also updated the FAQ in the first post, with a new entry explaining why I will not provide compatibility with art revamp mods like Ven's Stock Revamp or Nertea's Restock. Thank you for your understanding, folks.

@Barzon Kerman - I don't think there's a pressing need to update the screenshots in the OP.

The only change to the SM was the model and textures of the main engine nozzle, and given the lighting of the current screenshots, it's not significantly different enough to warrant new images.

I've noticed that it is very hard to set up the abort system, and often the tower fires in jettison mode and not abort mode due to user error. I'm thinking an indicator of which mode is active (or just redo the abort tower to function like a normal PEBKAC part and stage to jettison and an "Abort" action auto-bound to the abort group) could help rectify this.

There's a step-by-step guide on the GitHub wiki, which explains exactly how to set up the LAS.

Not really possible without a bespoke plugin.

The LAS and BPC stage to jettison by default, because that's what supposed to happen during a normal flight. It's not that difficult to then assign the abort engine mode as an action group.

And while SDHI SMS does support PEBKAC, restructuring the LAS and BPC to function identically to the PEBKAC's own reference implementation would make PEBKAC a hard dependency, which I'd rather avoid.

Without Animated Decouplers does not work correctly in version 1.7 :( Is there a solution or wait for the Animated Decouplers to be updated?

Animated Decouplers are working just fine with the latest KSP. They are unlikely to break unless a KSP update changes the underlying decoupler class in dramatic ways.

Actually, it works. Apparently the first time something went wrong. Thank!

Half the sdhi parts don't appear anywhere in my parts list, and I have all the depencies installed? Why is this and how do I fix it?

Which parts exactly don`t appear? Which KSP-Version? Do you have the newest Dependencies? Did you install SDHI correctly?

@WarpSpeed127,

In addition to @Cheesecake's questions, are you running a Sandbox, Science or Career savegame?

All parts should be immediately available in Sandbox and Science, while for Career mode you need to research certain technologies to unlock all the parts.

is there are any way to fix little solid rocket escape thruster on the fairing pannel, I trying to make a soyous similar abort procedure:

"Beginning with the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project, the Soyuz spacecraft also has a secondary set of four rocket motors at the top of the fairing that can propel the escape head section away from the rocket during the period between the jettisoning of the SAS at T+115s until fairing deployment at T+157s. In contrast to the SAS these rockets only move the escape head section a small distance away from the rocket, as at these altitudes there is enough time for the landing system to deploy." Wikipedia source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soyuz_abort_modes

This system was use during the last October incident.

@josselin2196 - I deliberately set up the Service Module Fairings to disallow surface attachments, because that's how it is on the real life Orion MPCV SM.

If you want a Soyuz-style abort configuration, you're better off using a Soyuz mod instead.

Im sorry for bothering you, it turns out I installed the mod incorrectly. I've fixed it now though.
