Diazo Posted April 12, 2014 Share Posted April 12, 2014 (edited) Landing Height Found on the CKAN as Landing Height Display Found of Spacedock as Landing Height Caution: This mod only affects the altimeter display at the top of the screen, it does not change the altitude at which equipment operates. So if a parachute is set to open at 500m ASL, the parachute will still open at 500M ASL, not when this mod causes the altimeter on the screen to display 500m. Version 2.1: KSP 1.3 compatible, no update required. Show the distance from the bottom of your vessel, not the center of mass, to the ground below you. Land on the dark side of the Mun with confidence. New Version 2.0: Mode Display AGL: Altimeter showing distance to ground/object below vessel. ASL: Altimeter showing distance to sea level. Green Text or no text visible: Automatic mode based on Surface or Orbital mode as displayed just above nav-ball. Red Text: Mode locked, will always stay in the displayed mode. Click inside the red box to change mode, this is a game-wide setting. Due to oddities in how the UI works I could not make the entire altimeter clickable, just the left side. (Red box is not visible in-game.) Download version 2.1 here Source code here Released under the GPL3 License. Notes: 1) To make it clear when touchdown happens but you can't tell because of the lighting, a displayed altitude of 0meter means a part of your vessel is touching the ground (or water if over the ocean). A displayed altitude of 1meter or higher means no part of your vessel is touching the ground. 2) Any mod that extends parts, such as the winches in KAS, are detected by this mod. For example, if you are lowering a KAS winch, this mod will report the altitude from the bottom of the winch head being lowered as that is the lowest part of the vessel. This is working as designed and the player needs to be aware of it happening when using such equipment. 3) The raycast checks the current vessel to determine if the part hit is valid or not. Vessels connected by some method, such as a fueling hose, may be considered one vessel by this mod and could cause unexpected values to be displayed. D.
