Space crane

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I looked in the already suggested thread and didn't see this.

I would like to see a crane arm implemented like the one on the ISS from Canada. http://www.nasa.gov/audience/foreducators/k-4/features/F_Canadian_Crane.html

I think if you could make it a 3 section rotating/hinging part with a small coupler on it, it would be so cool to be able to maneuver your space station into place with one or two of these.

Thanks for reading!

I am keeping my game vanilla, I tried 1 mod and had to delete the game and redownload it because it wouldn't even load.

Thanks for the idea though. I'd like the devs to make my game :)

Ouch, that's unfortunate. Did you try deleting its folder in GameData? That solves most issues for me.

Make your game what? :)

I meant have the company make the game not mod creators. Less hassle when patch time comes, I played mmos that I had to spen hours getting ui mods updated or looking for new versions when updated came.

Well, if a canadarm analogue ever is implemented, it's probably at least a few patches away. So it's either waiting, using a mod or making your own mod.

The only thing you really need is powered hinges; Infernal Robotics has those, along with washers, gantries, pistons etc.

If you dislike using mods on the "main" save, make a copy of your KSP folder, then install mods in that one while keeping the original stock. That way you can decide if a particular one is/isn't for you, while avoiding reinstalls :)
