Recommended Posts

I am happy to report that after I returned home from frisbee, mediafire had fixed itself! :D

Did this new release fix the helicopter part loading issue ?

I moved all "kmwheli*" files out of the parts folder, and it loaded fine. It was getting snagged on "kmwhelirotortailkso.mu" IIRC.

*BREAK*

I can't get this thing to orbit in NEAR. I thought the Thrustmax 200 engines had pitch trim that you could control up to 15 degrees. The engines I am looking at do not have such an option, so after I cut away the SRBs, I cannot control pitch to complete the main burn nor the circularization burn, even with full pitch deflection and the RCS booster blasting their hearts out. :(

*EDIT* I don't even see the engine nozzles moving even though they are supposed to have 7 degree vectoring.

(I am using NEAR but this doesn't seem like a NEAR problem. Seems like a 'engine missing pitch trim' problem)

Does this version finally has FAR support?

Only the user made patches that have existed since the KSO was released. The KSO System was never meant to fly with FAR.

The KSO System was not meant to fly with NEAR (or FAR). However, like you said, it does appear to not be a NEAR problem at the moment. Please tell me what version of the km_gimbal you are using (is it the one included with the latest download, or a different one) to launch with. You can diagnose if it is working by right clicking on the engines (either in the VAB or while on the launch pad) and there should be options for trim and such that appear.

If the heli part isn't loading then you didn't put the Firespitter folder from the KSO mod in your Gamedata. There is a Resources folder in it that adds FSCoolant that the heli part needs.

Yea there is no trim slider when I right click on the engine during an active flight. I know what it's supposed to look like; I played with the mod a while back and built an orbital station with the small orbiter and a lot of flights.

As for the km_gimbal issue, I'm not sure. I deleted the files, but I'll reinstall them and check.

*UPDATE*

Looks like I had a more current km_gimbal curtesy of B9 timestamped 12-27, but KSO uses an older km_gimbal timestamped 7-26 and in a different folder name (B9 uses "Klockheed_Martian_Gimbal"; KSO uses "Klockheed_Martian"). So when I manually installed, I recognized the folder name, but not that it was slightly different and didn't copy it over.

*UPDATE 2* I just gooned up the manual install. Works fine (gimbal and tailrotor file). Landing however... :}

If you want to use the updated version you can. Theres a link to a module manager patch in my sig that enables the new gimbal module on the KSOS engines (KSO SSME, EWBCL SSME and OMS). If you elect to use that patch then you can use the gimbal that came with B9 (which should be version 3 atleast)and can remove the one that was included with KSOS v4.10.

Does anyone know how to rename a KSO Shuttle Orbiter? I'm getting tired of the same old orbiter names, and I want to name some of my shuttles to Honor, Pride, Liberty and Triumph. sorry if this is a stupid question :blush:

You need a piece of image editing software like Photoship, GIMP or Paint.NET then you need to go to the post just below the OP in this topic and download the alternate names package for either the standard KSO or the Super 25. Included with those packages is a blank shuttle texture that you can name yourself.

You can follow this post:

http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/threads/68429-0-90-Kerbin-Shuttle-Orbiter-System-v4-10?p=1191571#post1191571

for a tutorial on how to do it.

So I followed the post, but when I saw the KSO Orbiter (I named Liberty), it was just the default Resolute texture. Idk why, it has everything right yet it does that.

EDIT: Nope, that didn't work. Idk why, i have it set up the way it's supposed to be set up, but it won't change to the Liberty texture. The Liberty Texture is fine, its just the CFG file that's having an issue.

EDIT: Change of plans, found the issue. I put it on the wrong cfg file. Stupid me! :( anyway, it worked fine! Thank you!

Glad I could help.

Change of plans...

How do you have everything saved? Where did you save the Liberty texture, what config did you edit?

I saved the Liberty texture in the Altnames file, and I copied the commandcfg and renamed and fixed everything for the Liberty shuttle.

send me a screenshot of the config file, syntax is very important.

The KSO features a 1.5 meter cargo bay, polykarbonate composite construction, and a state of the art thermal protection system.
The KSO's cockpit features the latest in glass cockpit multi-function displays, fly-by-wire control system linked to its state of the art flight management computer. The KSO's cabin has both a mission deck and crew deck with all amenities needed for extended orbital missions and accommodations for up to six kerbonauts.

Remove 'kerbin_orbiter'. The game is seeing that and loading the default texture and then not bothering with the rest. If you want to be able to swap between textures then you can go here:

http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/threads/68429?p=1261755&viewfull=1#post1261755

and download the texture switch patches for the orbiters and then add in each of the textures you want.

Still does NOT work, I did however get an image of it in the VAB.

And you saved the new textures as .tga files as well?

Also, if you have ATM installed you can try going into the texture cache for the KSO and deleting the cached kerbin_orbiter texture... other wise I dont know whats going on...

Looks like the Liberty command module still has its texture set to the standard KSO shuttle texture. Definitely check that.
