.22 MechJeb or an attempt at a ripoff?

Recommended Posts

Dont listen.

Spaceport is suffering glitches right now, it is just the download button with a diffrent name.

Grabbed it... But if this turns out to be shenanigans, I will be hunting people down to use in place of Jeb for my more "experimental" missions.

The only version of MechJeb compatible for 0.22.0 is via a dev build from r4m0n himself - anything else are unauthorized distributions by third-parties.

It may be best to report this to a forum moderator via PM - I've contacted staff about stolen re-uploads of add-ons before, and they're usually quite swift at taking them down.

I concur - the current version of Spaceport was allegedly implemented as a "store" feature on a WordPress blog, although SQUAD never intended for add-ons to be sold with actual currency.

I'm sure that will be resolved by the time Spaceport 2.0 comes out.

As others have said, its likely just a "feature" in spaceport, aside from the issue of who uploaded it. Without downloading it I cannot say for sure, but more likely than not it is just a standard Jeb build, with the mech jeb case made .22 compliant. Still, not a bad idea to report it.

As for the buy it button, i have downloaded a couple things now that had the same label, there is no asking for money or charging, it works just like the download button.

Edit: I am downloading it now to compare to my build.

Second Edit: The part.cfg is in fact identical to the .21 version, with the exception of the "TechRequired = start entryCost = 0" line addition, to make it .22 compliant. Not going to delve into the depths of the .dll to see if it is identical, but I doubt it is any different.

The uploader appears to be from France, so it may be wise to check to see if it is sarbian.

That being said, my understanding is that sarbian and r4m0n have a decent working relationship, so I doubt that the former would upload his own version of MechJeb onto Spaceport without the latter's permission.

Also without any discription of any kind

Well, everything is available from the first part research. So long as it helps me do the Delta-V calculations faster than using my Ti-86, I'm happy.

`buy now` appears instead of `download now` if you are not logged in sometimes. If you log in you will see it change to `download now`

I've spoken to sarbian - he states that he has nothing to do with that bootleg copy.

Looks like one of you guys beat me to the punch and got it taken down anyway - thanks to everyone who helped :)
