[1.0.4] Endurance (from Interstellar) [DISCONTINUED]

Recommended Posts

Question. I read that someone said the shovel part of the Ranger might tilt down/up for lift/drag. You can see that joint? on top but no opening on the bottom. I image the whole front nose tilts like a ramp on a c130?

I made a replica of the Hermes from The Martian using a few of your parts. It came out pretty good for a first try. Needs some more parts and some need to be adjusted, but I am happy with it.

Nice one! Looks great!

We decided against that - it appears that the 'joint' in the top is actually an air intake since the Ranger can fly in atmospheres using intake air.

Welcome to the forums!

Nice!

I can't, for the life of me, figure out how to dock the ranger with the endurance, even when I add a docking port and use automated docking. Any suggestions?

Hello guys !

I really appreciated the mod in the 0.90, espaccially doing the docking scene in IVA, or Land in Laythe by using spiral landing with cool sounds mods in IVA, wich make the game more immersive and realistc \o/ (by cool sounds mod, Imean the mod that make some distrubance noises in IVA)

Until came the 1.0, and I don't know why, is that a bug, or something else, but, when I Use the Ranger, its electricity starts to drain really fast, untill there is no more electricity, and all I can do is crash :/

Any clues ?

Are you using the most recent release? I didn't use this mod before 1.0.2 and never have a problem. In the config file the Ranger has an electric generator that constantly produces electricity. I've never run out of electricity, even with 4+ year missions.

I'm using the very last release, and sitll yet, when I use the aerospike motors, it start to drains the electricity.

There is another bug too, that does'nt allows you to buy the ranger's aerospike'smotors ine the techtree in career

The tech tree issue has been covered numerous times, it's a typo in the config file. Do a search in the thread and you'll find how to fix it.

As for the electricity, I've never run into that problem. Are you sure it's the electricity running out and not the air intake resource? Check the config file and make sure the resource generation for the electricity is set correctly.

I've solved the problem of the techtree thanks !

I also discovered the electricity problem source, it was because the SAS torque takes alot amount of electricity, so when I want to do crazy manoeuver, all my electricity go away :/

When I used the mod in 0.90, it didn't take that amount of elecricity for what I used to do with the ranger :/

So what I've done to solve it, I just added a 0 to the amount of electricity of the ranger .cfg file

I'm getting engine exhaust effects on the ground from the ranger engines even when they are offline any help on that one? For fixing the Rastorprop problem just add to the cfg MODULE { name = RasterPropMonitorComputer } and to fix the rangers engines from not showing up just change the TechRequired to TechRequired = experimentalAerodynamics As far as the engine fx issue anyone have any ideas or has this happened with anyone else?

Okay my exams are over now so I've started working towards the next update.

Science lab internal:

It's a little basic but I want to save memory as much as possible. It's more important just to be able to have proper crew portraits than fully-fleshed out IVAs for parts like this where they aren't really used for controlling anything.

Separated out the docking ports and they work much better now, and as a bonus you can still EVA through them! I may actually remove the other hatches from the Ranger so that when you click EVA it spawns you out of the rear hatch by default.

Also made a 1.25m version which connects up neatly and takes up literally 0 RAM.

Wow those look amazing, good job! It's pretty dark in the IVA, maybe a couple lights will do? I don't know if it has a serious effect on ram or not

Can you dock with the rear-ranger port now? Also, do you plan on 1.04 compatibility?

Yup, that all works fine now.

The IVA just looks dark because I took the screenshots when the KSC was as dusk, so it should look fine usually.

Very cool is there an iteration update planned?

Should be soon.

Hi, i have a question: I downloaded the Endurance mod and also JSI and RPM.

JSI and endurance work fine but RPM doesn't work, i can put cameras but in the IVA, i press the buttons around the displays, and nothing happens...there is only a black underground color with some text...is this problem caused by a not recent version that don't supports 1.0.4? Thanks and sorry for my bad English, I am Italian :)

Welcome to the forums!

RPM and Endurance works perfectly in 1.0.4, do you have the public release of RPM or the dev build? The public release doesn't seem to work.

What do you mean u downloaded JSI and RPM? They're one thing...

Hi,

I have found that the Ranger's rear docking node like's to spit out NREs if anything is attached to it in the VAB. Was there a fix for that?

Here's my output log text.

http://www./download/z0c8hap7can43p6/output_log.txt

I'm not sure exactly what the cause of that is, but either way it will be fixed next update, since the Ranger docking port is being separated into a separate part!

I'm also pleased to announce that JPLRepo will be working on a Deep Freeze part for the Endurance so we will finally get those cryo bays!

I just got version 1.0.4, and downloaded this mod. When I try to open up the craft in the hangar, I get errors saying they are missing certain parts.

Meaning they cannot be accessed. Should I wait for the coming update? Or sit tight?

Because I have all the parts in the folder, only the craft are locked when I try to open them in the VAB.

The mod should work fine, are you in career mode?
