[1.1] BDArmory v0.11.0.1 (+compatibility, fixes) - Apr 23

Recommended Posts

Baha, is it possible we might see flat panel radars like the Patriot and S-300/400 search and fire control radars?

 

I was also thinking of separate search and track radars, for more variable building options with mobile SAMs? Something like how the SA-8 and assorted mobile Soviet SAMs would have a search radar on the top, then a track and guidance radar up front. 

 

Just a thought, lemme know what you think.

One more thought, do you think you could team up with sirkut from infernal robotics and make it possible to add parts on top of the Millennial and Abrams cannon that rotate with the turret? It would be quite a rewarding feature if it's at all possible :) - I'm imagining placing a laser mount on top of a cannon bed and having it rotate along.

 

EDIT: Possibly a simpler solution would be to add an attachment point to the top center?

Can you post a pic? This sounds really strange. This is on a fresh install of 1.0.5 with absolutely no other modifications? Or mods that where previously removed? I only ask because a lot of us are running this with no issue on 1.0.5.

I cant seem to post pictures on the forum (everything is going badly today) So i'll just get a completely fresh copy of KSP. One last question though, I have a completely stock save file (that previously had mods, but I removed them), could this be causing the problem?

Thanks in advance.

I would assume no. But for the sake of argument. Just start fresh with no saves and see what happens. Then once it's working toss the save in. If you see an issue then you will know where problem is.

- RWR state is persistent
- Removed turret motion range tweakables from radars

= Changes by ferram4 =

    + Numerical Integration (affects trajectory - not accounted for by AI)
    
    = NOTE: aerodynamic values per weapon have not been applied yet

Notes:

- There are a few new systems and some of the systems were modified heavily during this update, so please help me if you find a sneaky bug
- Since guard's gun vs missile range is tweakable now, you will have to manually set it to a lower value for AI Planes so they don't try to gun down a plane from 2km away (before, it would automatically go to 800m)
- While radars can now detect landed vessels, they are still affected by ground clutter/other inhibiting factors, so it is normal if a plane can't see ground targets in a look-down situation.  Low altitude choppers and ships should have less problems with this
- AI Pilots can either be on standby mode or disabled, and can still be remotely activated via the wing commander's "Take Off" command.  However, their engines must still be activated manually. (can be done remotely via an ActionGroup command.  There is no remote staging command)
- Here's a note from ferram4 about the bullet aerodynamics:
      bulletDragArea = 1.209675e-5 //drag area of the bullet in m^2; equal to Cd * A with A being the frontal area of the bullet; as a first approximation, take Cd to be 0.3
      "...make them behave more realistically and provide reasons (for other mods) to choose between different caliber weapons when set up correctly"

- This value can be defined in the ModuleWeapon module of a part's config.  I haven't edited any of them yet so they all default to the above value.  More details here

Great job BahamutoD! And thanks! There's so much information that I can't wrap my head around it yet. Very impressive video, and I like the fact you use your doppler effect :-)

This update is going to have much effect on NAS and WW2 Warships as well. I'm wondering though, can the AI guard now group and fire multiple turrets at once? Can't really conclude it from the features list.

Thanks!  Not yet for the multiple different turrets.  That'll be a huge thing to tackle since until now, everything is based on the guards only using one type of weapon at a time.  I have plans though..

When will you be fixing HEKV-1? I want to make some of ships from The Expanse, and KSP being space simulator and needing space weapons and such. I know, you'll need to program intercept guidance for space, but could we t least get it working like it was before but with new guidance?

Speaking of which, I'll take suggestions for what to base the laser model on.

At first I was thinking along the lines of a sci-fi type of gun, but I could also do something more realistic like the US airforce ABL:

060322_spacecom_airbone_hlg.grid-6x2.jpg

or the Navy's LaWS:

Thoughts?

I would rather see the US Navies.

 

Side note, do you have a tutorial for how to make turrets that work by chance? I tried and failed horrendously....

So much wonderfulness - it's beautiful. My comments in italics.

Update v0.10.0

= New =
- Wing Commander module
Oh, enigmatic! Does it have cut scenes of Mark Hamill?


- MinCombatSpeed variable for AI Pilot, below which the pilot will focus on regaining speed when extending or orbiting
- Idle speed for AI Pilot for when it is only orbiting

Essential for supermanouvrable planes to avoid stalling and becoming sitting ducks. A big one for AI dogfighting. Low idle speed is nice.


- Tweakable missiles per target value for guards (will wait until set amount of missiles have missed before firing again)

Should make missile use less wasteful, makes firing interval largely redundant.


- Optional ejected shell collisions

Get the slomo physics warp mod and this makes for some Michael Bay style machinema :)


- Action groups for firing guns on weapon manager and individual guns (Currently only supports Custom1-10)

My Thrustmaster T-Flight just became very useful :)


- Support for simultaneous use of multiple on-board radars
- Support for simultaneous use of multiple off-board radars via data-link
- Multi-locking TWS capability on fighter-style radome

Hard to fathom the number of possibilities this opens up.

= Changes =
- Radars can detect landed/splashed targets

Ground/air combat goes up a notch.

- AI Pilot will return to and orbit the area it took off from/was activated when not in combat unless commanded to a location via wingcommander

Next stop, autoland....

- Improved AI Pilot throttle control and use of multi-mode engine (afterburner)
- Improved AI Pilot handling post-stall
- Improved AI Pilot evasive behavior
- Improved AI Pilot behavior for ground target gun attack
- Changed default max guard visual range to 5km

= Fixes =
- Fixed MANY guard mode issues causing it not to work properly/consistently
- Fixed AI Pilots taking off in standby mode when peace mode is enabled

All gravy.

= Changes by ferram4 =

- Extra bullet damage when a part is destroyed is transferred to connected parts
- Bullet penetration is guaranteed at >~75 degrees
- Bullet ricochets are guaranteed at <~5 degrees

Actual, honest to gosh tank armour now possible.

So happy my silly Smart Parts rockets have been made redundant, dogfights truly are now just a press of a key.

The video is amazeballs. Wingmen controls are just wonderful - the idea of flying a command AWACs while directing a squadron of fighters...joy. This has enabled several AI challenges I designed ages ago but couldn't implement. Thanks Bahamuto!

Hey.

It seems that when using the AIM-9 sidewinder with the Jernas missile turret that guards will not launch at any targets using them, even when in close range.

I'm gonna assume this is because AIM-9 missiles are meant for air to air and the guards seem reluctant about using them otherwise.

Are you planning to add a new infrared SAM in the future or is this just a bug?

 

 

(Oh yeah, the Goalkeeper emits smoke particles in the part list in the VAB/SPH :P)

I cannot thank you enough for this update baha, you've done an amazing job. Now I can finally do a massive dogfight scene I've been wanting to do for a long time but couldn't complete it because I needed the wingman module. The AI seems so much better now as well.

I wish I could create my own additions to BD Armory (since I already have drawings of my ideas) but I don't feel like tackling mod development, for now of course. Again, thanks for the update.:D:D

The guard will use the AIM-9 with the turret just fine.  You may have been too close.  Try setting the "Gun Range" value to something lower.  If the target is closer than the distance set, it will only use guns.

If you have a craft that only uses missiles, you can set it to 0 so that it tries to use missiles at all ranges, however missiles have a minimum static launch range (defined in the part config), under which they won't fire.  The AIM-9 has a min static launch range of 300m.

Right, it was probably the gun range, I had it maxed out for some reason

Now is when I come with that idea no one thought of.

What about a "refueling" mode for the following vessel, where it aligns straight behind you.

Awesome update, I am trying it out right now.

Want to see the new projectile effects on AviatorArsenal guns :)
