[1.3.X - 1.6.X] Speed Unit Changer - More units for your speed - Ap & Pe on your Navball

Recommended Posts

Are you used to different speed units like km/h or mph? Then Speed unit changer is for you!

Speed Unit Changer, a simple plugin to visualize current speed in different units.

With version 1.7.1 you can display speed on these units on your navball:

- meters / second

- kilometers / hour

- miles / hour

- feet / second

- Knots

- Mach number

And also on navball, you can now display:

- AGL or Altitude Ground Level based on your center of mass on these units:

  • Meters
  • Kilometers
  • Miles
  • Nautical miles
  • Feet

- Apoapsis & Periapsis (if Periapsis is negative, only Apoapsis is shown).

  • Now with a toggle for not showing speed on orbital mode!

- Target Name

I don't suppose you could do the same for the altimeter? Feet and nautical miles would be great.

Yes, it's GPL V3 (included in source code).

Ok, i will try to do it (not sure if i'll be able to do it. However I can show it in a little toggable window).

Ooh, I missed the navball update, nice. Quick question - does this remember settings per craft? The old one used to always default the window open, to near top left and in m/s whenever I switched vessels.

starting from that code, i'll try to change the altimeter to show altitude in selected unit...

Hey there, I removed your download links, there needs to be a license in the post, feel free to put them back once that's done :)

Lots of IRL stuff to do, but today I have some spare time, so I will try to integrate it in the plugin.

I updated Speed Unit Changer to V1.2.

Now it shows your altitude in a toggleable window in a unit related to the selected speed unit.

Links/info of the new version in the first post.

Really usefull plugin man! thanks =)

I have seen you added the plugin to kerbal curse forge, i just want to warn you the link doesn't work

This looks interesting. Going to have to give it a try.

With version 1.2 you can also display the altitude on the unit related to selected speed unit:

- Kilometers for km/h

- Miles for mph

- Nautical miles for knots

- Feet for ft/s

Would it be possible for these to be set these independently in the future? I'd love to be able to see knots and feet for aircraft.

Maybe I'm missing something.. how can I change the speed unit in relation to surface, rather than orbit? Makes it pretty useless for planes when the speed adds Kerbin's rotation into the mix

ferram aerospace messes around with it so it wont display while installed

Sorry, I didn't saw the thread in a really long time. ;.;

Thanks for the info, I'll try to fix it ASAP.

I'll add this functionality and compatibility with 0.24 (currently don't know if it works, and also I have to update toolbar plugin) when I have enough spare time ;.;

Currently, whatever state you are displaying your speed (orbit, surface or target) if you change the speed units, in the navball the speed will be displayed in that units. If you are in orbit state and want to change to surface, just click on the navball display until

surface appears, and also the speed will be shown in selected unit. Maybe I'll add a feature to display selected unit only in one of the states (selected by the player).
