So...does it count down from 10 and stage for you? Aside from being cool, is there a practical purpose in this?

For example, I use FASA module with several launch clamps and towers. And I create stage sequence for separate undocking launch towers.

See a little video (don't worry, it's old design)

Very nice work on the UI here ;)

Throttle control is a must as well, since KSP now put 50% by default upon awake. Xx

And staging control is nice feature too.

Definitely a step in the right direction you did here. ;)

I am about to redo the whole sequence code, because it don't work well in KSP 64 for now and I find it too messy.

I will keep you updated once I am done with it (was quite busy with Chatterer and other boring real life things lately)

Thank you! I will wait your notification. Also, we can merge own code into one stream, I think. What do you think about?

Nice, belpyro! The engine control looks great and I'm excited to use that.

A Kerbalized countdown voice would be outstanding, or a way to turn off the voice altogether. I run with Chatterer and hearing that in the background against an English countdown would be a bit jarring. I don't have the skill to make a good voice over for it, but I'm sure someone in the community does.

Though it occurs to me now that since this is based on the original, it may already have the Kerbalized sound set. If so, nevermind me!

pro-tip: download first instead of assuming feature sets

Can you turn the countdown voice off so its just the timer

You can remove Sound folder ) Ok, I will add this feature in a release candidate.

Is anyone else using this having trouble with getting only the "launch a new vessel" contract over and over or is it just me? Contracts were fine until I installed this mod.

It might be an interaction with Fine Print or Coherent Contracts though. I'm just curious if it's happening elsewhere.

Sure no problem, any help is appreciated and these features you added were on my todo list anyway, but I lack of free time.

Feel free to fork the project on GitHub so we can easily merge our work.

I guess you saw that my coding style on this mod is a bit "awful" as this was my first experience in C#.

So I plan to optimize it and make it cleaner.

I have also an new UI in the work but I like yours as well, so we might put in multiple UI style, the more options to the players the better ;)

Finally, there are future plan to interact with other mods but we could discuss about this later by PM.

;)

Ok. I will fork from your project and we will be able to merge together later. Thank you!

Nice mod and i like the graphic for the timer. A bug that i have during launch. As soon as the rocket takes off the abort speech files starts to play.

Also it would be nice for the mod to be able to save the location of the timer window, eg. the timer always appears at the center of the screen but i prefer to have it underneath the game's altitude display at the top of screen, it would be nice for the timer to stay there so i won't have to move it at every launch.

Finally would it be possible to have the "cleared the tower" included at the take off sound from Apollo, like the LCD - Launch CountDown has it, i believe it adds to the thrill of the launch. If not can i change the audio file?

If you don't have a location saving it means that it is a bug. I'll check it, again.

About sound: yes, you can change a sound, but you must save sound name.

I'm pretty new to "The World of Kerbal Space" and really enjoy it. I like this Countdown program, but I'm having a problem. The countdown timer second is about 8 seconds long? The timer runs very slooooooowly! Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Keith
