[1.02] Vertical Propulsion Emporium. v0.22b (10th may 2015)

Recommended Posts

Oh my! I have to stop looking at all the pretty pretty pictures in this thread to report the easiest bug to fix.

The current release on KerbalStuff has a release version of "Kerb-fu_v0.20a", whereas previous versions have versions like "0.19a". This is making the CKAN indexer sad.

I don't suppose you can pop over to KS, and edit the mod info to have a version of "v0.20a"?

Many, many thanks!

~ Paul

Hi, is it possible to use the naming convention of "Kerb-fu_vX.XXa" .... where X.XX is the version, as this would better match and identify releases existing on peoples PC's ( as v0.20a could be any mod )

Mainly because I will forget to change it when I update the site :cool:

Edit: I re-uploaded the current version with v0.20a in the version field as requested

Behold the Sneiffellzz Mobile Steam Production Plant!

This thing is about 22 tons without any steam in its tanks, and about 37 tons with steam in said tanks. Its purpose is to provide steam for steam powered rovers and trains that need it.

HUZZAH! another triumph of modern science :D

Maiden flight of the Ada Gillyflower series of manned rockets (and a big box of Jammie Dodgers to whomever gets the reference):

On orbit at an altitude of 125 kilometres, and just in time for tea!

Astounding sir! may I assume by this post that you made it back to land safely?...

So, I have been further tweaking.... I have stiffened up the train suspension, and rebalanced a few parts mentioned by others.

please tell me if you think something is over/under powered etc, or if you can think of a good placement in research progression for the parts. :)

This mod is absolutely gorgeous.

well, i have notenough time yet to try every part and system, but at first i decided to build an amphibious airship/patrol boat and on shots below is what it looks like.

P.S. it seems to me that it would be a great idea to add some ordinary sails for ships and airships to this mod pack. Also i can not attach the boat hull parts to struts, can it be fixed?

P.P.S. oh, and what about a water pump for replenishment of water tanks while splashdown? it seems to me it could be good idea!

water tanks are good for many purposes, also you can use them for balancing your ship. so, if you have a pump for venting or fulling the tanks, you can keep your ship stable everywhere!

next. you can make a steam propeller and with steam generator you can have a steamer ship, like in old-good past centuries. and with water pump you will have infinite water reserve!

Sonlong Kerman returned safely after completing six orbits. The mission plan was for ten orbits, but Sonlong misused the oxygen generating candle to reheat his tea.

Now that's what I call an airship!!!

yes the collider on the ship hull bow/stern part is complicated and needs revision, water pump and steam prop/screw sounds like a good idea, I will have to see what happens :)

My salutations noble sir! a remarkable feat of courage and endurance, I do hope the candle proved sufficient to keep master Sonlong's tea at a respectable temperature.

This is such a wonderfully refreshing mod! I thought I would share my first Mun Landing with only your parts!

An excellent landing good sir. It is good to see that you survived and did not need to make use of the professors new concrete warranty!!! ( warning warranty expires upon leaving the concrete! )

Is there a way to hide a probe core inside a cargo barrel? I want to put a few communication satellites around Mun, but neither spoil the nice steampunky look of by craft by strangely alien, "high tech" looking parts nor make them manned... Ah, Kerballed...

On the other hand, shooting them in a five-hundred-year mission around the Mun could be the Kerbal version of "banishment to Australia" :sticktongue:

This is one awsome mod!

Very " Kerbal" :)

Do any of you modding gurus know if it would be possible to do a complete "re-skin" on the game?

KSC, menus, the whole shebang.

This has actually got me to the point where I'm thinking of trying my hand at some modding of my own.

I am brainstorming some probe and rover cores, will hopefully be out soon

Definitely have a go, there are a lot more tutorials around now to help you get started

Behold! the orbital farms of tomorrow..... Today !!! :sticktongue:

They are suntracking, produce snacks for fermenting into munshine and have docking ports on the outside end!!!!

This is how rocketpunk/steamrocketpunk spaceflight goes. I removed my probe core from the game entirely.

If you want a communications station, you're going to need to use a proper space station.

In my opinion, if you want an authentic steampunk experience, and you REALLY want probe cores, you're going to need to use 4-tonne Difference-Engine Machines stuck to the front of spacecraft.

wait... sun-tracking parts that are stack-mounted? What happens to parts attached to them?

Also, speaking of the sun... Can we have giant parabolic mirror solar boilers? The tiny ones just don't cut it.

ok, I will get a giant solar panel onto the drawing board and see what happens
