Chaka Monkey - Closed Development Thread

Recommended Posts

Yeah documentation and descriptions have been a casualty of beta development, for sure that will all get polished up in the future. As far as tweakscale, that makes my head hurt. Some of the parts fit with very tiny tolerances. But, if you're having fun... :P

Hey no worries you have by far the best looking part mod out right now, IMO. I was actually tweaking stuff because I was having trouble getting my stage farings to fit when i added something extra to my craft beacause that would then make it too tall for the farings provided. I was trying to get my procedural farings mod to work but for some reason it wouldn't resize the faring. I checked the forums and found that if one of my other mods is outdated or doesn't have their KSPAPI.ext up to date it will cause the sizing problem. Well it took me all afternoon yesterday searching (65+ mods, I'm running linux 64) but I found out what mod is causing it through process of elimination and tracked it down to CMES. I checked and I have the current version and honestly I don't know enough about KSPAPI to know if it's up to date or not so I was wondering if you knew anything about this or what your thoughts were on it. Thanks for your time, Brian.

Edit: Just read a couple pages back and saw your conversation about the plugin dependencies and being able to delete the KSPAPI file. It might also be the procedural farings dll fighting with the existing one. Ill try and report back.

Edit2: It was the 2nd procedural faring dll. I deleted it and we are good to go now! Thanks for your help. well I guess you didn't have to do anything but thanks for a great mod!!!!

Well, the first time I saw this mod I thought of random f***ing monkey**** B* parts. But thanks to one of my friends I found out the wonderful sorcery in this piece of sorcery.

YANFRET, can you release us an realistic textures package? With all due respect sir I don't like the "Chaka Monkey etc etc" around my craft.

Sorry if this insults you.

Here's the thing; All Chaka Monkey textures are released under CC share alike attribution 4.0. So, if you are looking for a non-monkey experience, any user is welcome to download the pack and take from it what they like, even remix or redistribute the textures as needed with attribution.

Enjoy!

Another user asked the same question just now, my first suggestion was to try re downloading the pack and replacing the RS68 part folder ( or the entire CMES folder if that's easier )

For some reason we have had 25,776 downloads in the last two days from kerbalstuff alone so the idea that a few downloads got corrupted sounds fairly reasonable.

EDIT: was that copy downloaded from kerbalstuff or dropbox?

Edit; I think its a conflict with another mod you have installed.

Can you send over a list of those?

RS-68 Update:

Thanks to alien123 we now know that the engine is not compatible with REAL FUELS. I'm not surprised by that, but we will do some more testing and try to iron that out for the next update, which will be soon

EDIT: ^ Whoa first post time machine!

I know it's not all your parts but they are the majority of them. This is the start of my Mun mining colony.

So I don't know what is causing my KSP to crash and considering I have no idea how to read KSP crash logs, I'm just going to post this here. I didn't know what you all needed from the crash report so I just zipped the whole crash folder. If anyone could help that'd be awesome :) Or if I'm doing this bug reporting completely wrong let me know as well :P

Not sure but looks like you might have hit the memory limit

36% memory in use.
0 MB physical memory [0 MB free].
0 MB paging file [0 MB free].
0 MB user address space [414 MB free].

EDIT- No Problem now you can put more kerbals in space :)

Hmmm, it was only at 3.1MB but it never bothered me on my other saves. I'll try adding ATM to see if that helps.

Edit: Well that was it... Odd, thank you though :P

My favorite part was the animation they used which looked like a Nintendo version of KSP.
