Fuzzy Resource Scanner M700 doesnt attach or allow offset for me. Sits about a meter above the nearest attachment point. Had to delete to get any function from the part.

CTT Configs:

A long time ago, I made a quick patch that made a few things that added a new config to this mod. This basically implemented the new parts added with Ven's Stock Part Revamp to Community Tech Tree. Things like the Dachhound engine are unlocked before the reliant, and a couple changes with the SRBs. The Mk2VA cockpit is also unlocked before the MK2 (stock) cockpit, and the 2.5m Nova Nuclear engine is unlocked after the current 1.25m nuclear engine. This is for a sense of progression of engines. The Dachhound engine is much worse than the reliant/swivel, so it should be unlocked before.

To install:

First download and install Community Tech Tree (CTT) --> DOWNLOAD

Just download the file from Space Dock --> DOWNLOAD

And install it normally by extracting the gamedata folder within the file into the KSP directory. 

This patch works on all versions of KSP. 

 

I just tried this patch in 1.3.1 with the latest CKAN CTT and Ven's, and while it puts the Dachshund  engine in Basic Rocketry, the LV-T45 Swivel is also there.  Probably because stock moved it since. 

 

I copied this section and added '2' to fix it:

@PART[liquidEngine2]:NEEDS[CommunityTechTree]
{
        @TechRequired = generalRocketry
}

 

@Ven , could this patch be added to Stock Part Revamp?

I've noticed broken animation for the 3 inflatable module. After Having verified and tested files config, I have find why.

ModuleAnimateGeneric need an "actionGUIName = "

If you add "actionGUIName = Inflate" for the 3 module. Animation work fine.

Is there a post that is collecting the issues still remaining, such as the one above?  As KSP1.4 is imminent, I'd like to make sure my KSP1.3.1 mod collection is up to date, just in case.

Anyone know why the Pila and Aerobee engines don't show an ASL thrust?  I've looked through the configs and to me it seems fine.  I was going to use the Pila and wanted to make sure there wasn't something wrong with it before I did.

Hi Ven,

thank you for this really cool mod.

I'm just started using it in KSP 1.3.1 and I'm facing a strange issue: people in PPD-20 are not listed in the crew thumbnails nor shows their inventory.

At this link https://drive.google.com/open?id=1lL3y4EUJs2yXKoxw2WPehjH94OXS-LF7 you can find:

- KSP logs from a 1.3.1 vanilla installation with only Ven's Stock Revamp installed via CKAN

- saved "default" player game with a simple ship showing the issue (only a cupola with a PPD-20 attached)

- a screenshot showing Bill Kerman is in the PPD-20 but doesn't appear in the crew thumbnail list next Jebediah

Let me know if you need more data or you have trouble downloading the logs.

Thank you again

Galimba

Hi again,

Could you please comment my post? It's a feature or a bug? If you need more info please let me know.

 

Regards

Galimba

Ven entrusted me with the wheel models he made. They're almost done:

Does anyone have any experience with wheels? All of them spin in the wrong direction and I can't figure out why. :/

Here's another patch for Ven's Revamp.  This switches the engines using multiple nodes, e.g., the poodle, the terrier, from ModuleJettison to the new module introduced in 1.2, ModuleStructrualNode.  The advantage of ModuleStructuralNode is that the shroud shouldn't disappear when you reload the craft the way the current shrouds do.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/24301800/Vens_Engine_Fixes.cfg

Do you still have this file somewhere? The download link is broken, and I have the described issue of disappearing shrouds.

Alright, wheels are done so far, who wants to test them?

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ndeyd03pre6ko1m/AACAHWCLNDYI1byPu1H2yzCYa?dl=0

Going from stock to those is seamless for all except the large XL3 wheels. Those will do something weird and launch you up in the air when they're loaded for the first time. No idea why.

The Poodle engine (liquidengine2-2) certainly won't work anymore, as it has a new model.  (The previous model now lives on as the "Gale" liquid engine, part name S2ServiceEngine.  Swapping that out should make the patch work.)

EDIT: However, there was a bug where KSP would treat the adapter as if it existed, even when it was disabled -- so using a size 2 engine in a size 1 stack would cause enormous drag, even if the size 2 tankbutt was hidden, so I wouldn't recommend using it.

I've just found in testing that the S2 and TR-2L wheels also give a jump when I "upgrade" on a vessel in-flight (testing with a Bug-E Buggy and Crater Crawler left lying around at KSC), though not quite to the same extent as the XL3s.  The M1 wheels (tested with the Prospector Rover) upgraded pretty smoothly.

Edit: I'm also finding that the XL3 isn't actually getting any traction?  The others work just fine.

Behoooold! It is done!

Many thanks @Kerbas_ad_astra for testing.

That's the one! It's a very elaborate metaphor you know.

Much better!  There's just a little 'bob' as physics loads, but that happens with stock rovers too.

Great! Yeah that seems to be normal. Should I open a pull request?

Sorry if this was answered already, but I am playing 1.2.2 and have the proper version loaded.  I can't do a crew transfer when docked.  Is the docking ports broke somehow?

Not sure if this is just me but i noticed that the Mk16 chute (the first one you start with in career) has a bug where it wont slow you down as much. Stock it is about 7m/s but with the mod installed the shute only slows me down to 13m/s which is almost double.
Also I love this mod. The amount of detail that goes into this is amazing thank you so much

@Zuthor The Ven's configs for the small 0.625 node-mount chutes are bugged.  The Mk16 is supposed to be a main chute but is mistakenly config'ed as a drogue chute, the Mk26 drogue has the stats of a main chute but the light weight and lower cost of a drogue.  One of many errors that have never been corrected despite years of ignored bug reports in this thread.  Best you can do is fix it up yourself if you can.

Possibly installing RealChute will fix this? I use it myself; at the very least you can use the chutes it provides and configure them in the VAB. It's not just for RSS either; works fine with an otherwise stock install.

Are you (@Zuthor and @fourfa) using the latest version of VSR (direct from the repo, using the green "clone or download" button to get the zip file: https://github.com/VenVen/Stock-Revamp/)?  I just tried the stock "Jumping Flea" vessel and it landed at 4.5 m/s with VSR, and 6.8 m/s stock.  Also, there's no Mk 26 parachute anymore.

That's not to say that there's no room for further re-balancing of the parachutes, but I definitely recall Ven making a commit (which might have been a PR from me, but I'm not sure) which swapped the stats for the drogue and main chute to get everything back into alignment, more-or-less.

@Kerbas_ad_astra I used CKAN to install the mod but ill try to uningstall it and do a manual install.

Looks like the CKAN version bust be older or broken. Thanks for helping Kerbas its fixed now :)
