Hello, I couldn't imagine playing Kerbal Space Program without RemoteTech, but I didn't want too many parts on my savegame. I decided to release a Stock RemoteTech as I thought it might help you too, feel free to do whatever you want with this, it is easy to use and easy to edit.

What is it?

StockRT is a ModuleManager config file which adds the possibility to use the RemoteTech mod without the additional parts.

This config file requires RemoteTech v1.7.X and ModuleManager v2.6.X and support Unmanned before Manned.

  • Comms DTS-M1 has not been tweaked, can communicate to 50 Mm like normal
  • Communotron 88-88 can communicate to 400 Gm (like the Reflectron GX-128).

  • All distances are the same as on Kerbol, exept for the Communotron 88-88 which can communicate to 800 Gm.


On Real Solar System (dish range from Realism Overhaul):

  • All the commands pods can communicate to 200 km, and all probes have been tweaked to communicate from 100 to 3000 km,

StockPlugins

 

What is it ?

StockPlugins is several ModuleManager config files which adds the possibility to use a plugin without the additional parts.

StockPlugins support DeadlyReentry, Graphotron, KerbalEngineer, KerbalGPS, kOS, MechJeb, Protractor, RocketWatch and Telemachus.

You don't need all these plugins for the use of StockPlugins.

If you want that it supports an other mod, you can just make a request here :wink:

This config file requires ModuleManager v2.6.X.

You can delete/prune these folders:

  • KerbalEngineer: Kerbal Space Program/GameData/KerbalEngineer/Parts

  • DeadlyReentry if you want to delete the Stock Parts : Squad/Parts/Aero/HeatShield
  • RocketWatch: Kerbal Space Program/GameData/RocketWatch/Parts

 

If you don't want to delete these folders, you can Prune them with AutoPruner.

put StockPlugins.pnrl into the folder where AutoPruner is.

and in command line: pruner -prune StockPlugins.prnl

In stock, KerbalEngineer has in these options the possibility to don't used his part. If you use StockPlugins only for KerbalEngineer, I suggest you to look at KerbalEngineer's options.

By default the DRE's parts are blocked, but there's an optional version which keeps the DRE's parts and blocks the Stock's parts, you just need to merge and overwrite the DeadlyReentry.cfg file which is in the Optional folder.

If you keep the Stock HeatShields, the config file will add decoupler to them.

How to install it?

Unzip all files. Put the StockPlugins folder which in the GameData folder in your KSP/GameData folder.

How to update it?

Unzip all files. Merge the new StockPlugins folder with the old folder which is in your KSP/GameData folder

How to uninstall it?

Troubleshooting ?

For KerbalGPS, you need to rename all your satellite of your constellation with GPS in his name.

All functions from the supported plugins will be set on the pods/probes.

Sweet. Would definitely download if I had memory issues. Fortunately, I don't. However, very useful mod for those who have a crappy rig, or are mod-happy. Nice work!

I think adding the 100 km communication range to all command pods is a good idea since it save both another part and might be more realistic. However the reduction in dishes and antannas reduces gameplay and realism.

A couple comments and suggestions:

  • The MM cfg by itself will not save memory for anyone. The part loader loads any valid asset it can find in GameData even if that asset isn't used anywhere in game. You need to tell users to delete folders from RemoteTech or overwrite them with blank MBMs.
  • You could preserve the existing ranges and function of standard RemoteTech by cloning and scaling stock parts with ModuleManager.
  • RemoteTech is fairly texture light with the exception of the GX-128 (big folding dish). If you exclude that part, you're really only looking at about 4 MB of textures -- not a lot considering Squad has IVA textures that are > 4 MB.

This is why I say this:

- All RemoteTech parts can't be accessed on the editor. If you don't use them on your savegame, you can delete the parts folder from RemoteTech.
;)

But this is not the only advantage to use this MM config, with this config you can keep a savegame without any new parts. If you want to stop using RemoteTech, you can ;) and you will keep your savegame clean :)

Great work!

I cannot live without Remote Tech, but it is always a challenge for longer-range mission that the longer-range dishes are huge and heavy (I'm sure like 1 ton or greater). Having the stock folding antenna be able to do the long-range job is great.

That's a new career ? You need to unlock Survivability on the techtree to have access to this function (on the default RemoteTech mod you need to unlock Unmanned Tech).

I'm having some trouble with this: say I have an empty pod as root, and an Octo2 attached to it. With StockRT installed, it has no command. The signal icon shows green, but I can't control it.

Not sure if it's a bug with RT or the MM implementation.

I've never seen a bug like this, you can try one thing, delete StockRT and see if you have again the bug (if yes, I think it doesn't come from StockRT).

Your RemoteTech installation is up to date ? And can you send your logs and the list of all mods that you use (to find them you can read this: How To Get Support).

Confirmed, on a fresh install with only RT and Stock RT.

Here's the setup: A probe core as root, an empty pod under it (and a DP-10 when not using Stock RT). It works perfectly on both occasions;

Same setup, but the root is the empty pod: controllable with RT, uncontrollable with Stock RT (even with the DP-10): the light shows green, but clicking on any action gives you the "no connection" message.

Work around: edit the .cfg, add a "#minimumCrew[0]" check when adding moduleSPU. Pods don't have the flight computer anymore, but the RT controllability check passes.

It seems like a bug in the RT code: root has SPU, but can't be controlled due to lack of minimum crew, therefore ship can't be controlled regardless of presence of other perfectly fine SPU parts on the same ship.

- - - Updated - - -

No useful logs to post, given nature of problem: I'm not generating any exceptions or anything, I simply have no control on the ship.

I had an issue with an unmanned Mk1-2 pod in LKO over KSC. I decoupled it from my SM for reentry inteface but when I switched to the pod, it said no connection even though I was 80,000 m above the KSC. It was not the root pod on my rocket as I had another probe core on my SM.

Is this a known issue?

I've doesn't seen this issue, I will make some test to see if it comes from a bug of StockRT, thanks to have report it ;)

Edit: A pod can't communicate alone ... it needs a Kerbal or a probe, and on your savegame have you unlocked the Survivability node on the techtree? To the next update, I will delete the "Remote control capable" (SPU) from the commands pods which is useless ;), it will be more clear (but it will preserve the communication of 100 km).

Can you try the last dev build of MechJeb? It seem to work fine on the carrier with MechJeb2.5.0.445. You can find it here: http://jenkins.mumech.com/job/MechJeb2/

Thanks, I wasn't aware that a new one has been released. I just tried it out. It unlocks but not in the modules it says it does while in the R&D facility. A minor problem which will surely be resolved in the release.

Whenever I have StockPlugins installed, my rockets automatically stage *everything* as soon as the launchpad loads.

I did a lot of testing, and if I remove the Graphotron module manager patch, my rockets no longer stage automatically.
