KSPPartRemover v1.0

Removes parts from Kerbal Space Program crafts

So I needed to remove about 750+ ladders from my orbital space station in order to perform my docking maneuvers with more than 5FPS :D
After Whack-A-Kerbal-ing for over an hour and lots of backup-restore, I decided a dedicated application could do the job more efficiently.

Is there a way to compile this without VisualStudio on Linux/Mac with mono?

Hi,

Yes you can use MonoDevelop for that.

In case you wanna do it from the console you can use xbuild.

Be aware though that for the test project I've added the NUnit reference via NuGet, I don't know how MonoDevelop or xbuild handle this.

In case you don't want to build the test project you are fine, no external references in the main project.

BR, Deads

Just wanted to give this tool a well-deserved bump. Worked for me flawlessly in version 0.25, and helped me remove a bunch of faulty parts from a vessel in flight.

@djphllps, You can check the github page for usage documentation. You have to run this tool from the command prompt.

Awesome, glad to hear that! :D

Could you pls compile these builds into different OS formats? for those of use who don't/can't do it. Thankyou

Hey, sorry for replying so late.

Since this is a .NET executable it should work out-of-the box on all platforms supporting mono.

To be sure I just tried it out on my Synology NAS which runs a very slim Linux OS and it worked there out-of-the-box.

In case you have problems lauching it with "mono KSPPartRemover.exe", I'd ask you to post your error output.

Hey I downloaded this but I cant find the .exe file. Probably something I did I don't really know how to work Github and avoid it if I can.

Despite the fact that this hasn't been updated since 0.24 and has a decent chance of being dead, I'll still help you out because it might be beneficial to you or others in the future.

You have to go to the Releases section of the GitHub repository to download any compiled code, usually. That's here: https://github.com/ChrisDeadman/KSPPartRemover/releases

Download the "KSPPartRemover.v0.2.1.1.zip" file, open it up, and you'll see the .exe right away.

Thank you for helping, magico13, really appreciated!

This project indeed was pretty much dead, but I decided to revive it for the KSP 1.1 release :cool:
The new v0.3 includes new listing features and a lot of streamlining, feel free to check it out!

I tried to run your latest version and I couldn't start it up, I downloaded it here  https://github.com/ChrisDeadman/KSPPartRemover/releases/download/v1.0/KSPPartRemover.v1.0.zip and I tried running the .exe in Windows 10, any tips on how to fix this?

Hi Stephen,

KSPPartRemover is a command-line application, which means you have to run it within your operating system shell.
If you look at the first post again you'll see the example usage inside a linux terminal.
For the windows terminal (cmd.exe) it's the same, except that you do not need to prepend mono.

Hope this helps, BR Chris

Hi Pavel,

It still works but I did not add new features to it for a while now. Also never got a lot of feedback, I guess it's not that widely used.
Is there a specific reason for your question?

Does it support save files?

Does it support all files in folder?

KSPPartRemover.exe -remove-part -i saves\default\Ships\VAB\ -p launchclamp

Hey flart,

Yes it supports save files as well, that's why there is a craftfilter switch as well.
I did however not test it with save files of the newer 1.4.3 version, craft files from 1.4.3 are working tho so it should work!

It unfortunately does not support all files in folder.
But you can do this with command prompt like this:

for %F in (saves\default\Ships\VAB\*) do KSPPartRemover.exe remove-parts -i %F -p launchclamp

Remember to always have a backup in case something goes wrong, 'cause since you did not specify an output file your input file will be overwritten.

BR, Chris
