[1.0] TurboNisuReloaded - Stock-a-Like Parts Pack [06/05/15]

Recommended Posts

TurboNisuReloaded

A stock-a-like parts pack


Back in 0.23 TurboNisu appeared with some great looking stock-a-like parts. Unfortunately he only ever made one update to the pack and with the more recent releases of KSP some of the properties of the parts became unbalanced. Not wanting to let this pack fall into obscurity (And since TurboNisu generously licenced his parts in such a way as to allow redistribution), I have totally rebalanced every part in the pack to bring it in line with stock KSP as it is today.

All 15 parts TurboNisu created have had all of their properties balanced in line with stock KSP, including cost, mass strength and fuel capacity. I have also adjusted the names and descriptions of the parts, to attribute them to the companies already existing within the game (Rockomax Conglomerate etc).

Recent changes:

  • Categorized fuel tanks as FuelTank rather than Propulsion
  • Max temperatures bought in line 1.0 values
  • Entry costs bought in line 1.0 values
  • Fuel levels bought in line 1.0 values (Think this only really affects the tiny tanks)
  • Attachment nodes fixed
  • Added bulkhead profiles for sorting

Download from Dropbox, last updated 06/05/15.

As this is just a part pack compatibility shouldn't be broken with KSP updates

When updates are released I will check the balance of the parts as soon as I can, but it is HIGHLY unlikely you will experience any issues in the meantime.

The Parts

  • 6 new fuel tanks, including adapters and endcaps
  • Junctions for the stock girders (Available in T, L and + shapes)
  • A new smaller girder size, also with a full set of junctions
  • A triangular structural plate
  • A basic, low tech landing leg

Obviously all credit goes to TurboNisu for making these parts, I have just updated their cfg's. TurboNisu has endorsed my re-release of this pack.

Any and all feedback would be appreciated. I still haven't checked the distribution of parts around the tech tree - feedback on this is especially welcome.

Based on 'Stockalike parts for useful esthetics' by TurboNisu.

is this version any different than v1.02 of the original parts pack with your 0.24 MM cfg applied? You say you're targeting 0.25 with this release so I assume some additional changes have been made but if so I'm interested in what they might be.

These look quite useful. I really need 64-bit...

Really? Really? It's a set of parts, what more do you want?

Honestly, "64 bits" is being passed around like it's the new cool greeting on the street. "Yo, how ya 64-bit goin', brah?" It's like no one is even paying attention to what they're saying. You don't make a "64 bit" edition of a few models, textures, and part configs. It's the same bleeping files! I swear, the human race is doomed. We're getting less intelligent with every generation! Gah!

Amd I'm one of them! Now I'm sad. I'm just a stupid, sad, doomed human being.

(Yes, I just realized I over-reacted to a misunderstanding of the comment. I admit it. Throw a 64-bit rock at me if it makes you feel better.)

Take it easy, dude. I'm sure he just means he has too many mods already...

You could just ask for more RAM, you know. No need to have it thrown at you, that might hurt. ;)

Screw 64 bit, buy a Geforce 970 and run in opengl, dropped my ram usage from 3.5gb to 2.5gb :D Next convert all textures to DDS (works with 99% of textures, just use originals if the DDS is screwed) dropped it to 1.8gb, and I have a crap ton of mods :D

The Module Manager patch I originally posted was just a quick dirty edit mainly just of part costs when cost actually became a thing. With this pack I have gone through every property of every part and made sure they line up with their stock equivalents (As best I can anyway...stock parts aren't actually balanced against themselves very well...but I digress). A couple of the tanks have had their capacities changed and I've taken a closer look at the cost, mass and strength of all of the parts. Also, since this is a full redistribution and not a patch, Module Manager is not required.

These look quite useful. I really need 64-bit...

I havn't got the numbers on this, but I really wouldn't of thought these would use much of your RAM allowance. That being said, the look of all of these parts is based off of stock textures and it would be GREAT if someone could set them up (Or give me very easy to follow instructions) to use the stock textures as Lack does with his Stock eXTension parts.

Thank you so much for restoring this mod. I used the fuel nosecone's and caps quite heavily back in the .23 days and I really missed them.

Just a parts pack so should still work fine in 0.90 - let me know if you find any problems.

Here's a TweakScale file for the fuel tanks;

TurboNisuReloaded_TweakScale.cfg


@PART[tankBigAdapter] // Rockomax X200-6A Fuel Tank
{
MODULE
{
name = TweakScale
type = adapter_2_1
defaultScale = 2.5
}
}

@PART[tankBigCap] // Rockomax X200-6R Fuel Tank
{
MODULE
{
name = TweakScale
type = stack
defaultScale = 2.5
}
}

@PART[tankTinyCap] // Oscar-R "Tangerine" Fuel Tank
{
MODULE
{
name = TweakScale
type = stack
defaultScale = 0.625
}
}

@PART[tankSmallAdapter] // FL-T80A Fuel Tank
{
MODULE
{
name = TweakScale
type = adapter_2_1
defaultScale = 0.625
}
}

@PART[tankSmallCap] // FL-T80R Fuel Tank
{
MODULE
{
name = TweakScale
type = stack
defaultScale = 1.25
}
}

@PART[tankSmallCapRCS] // FL-RC15 RCS Fuel Tank
{
MODULE
{
name = TweakScale
type = stack
defaultScale = 1.25
}
}

Is there any skilled modeler who could complete the modular girder parts with a 6-way junction?

That would open even more possibilities indeed. You can already buils quite crazy things with those:

(trucks from SXT and winch from KAS)

Thanks a lot a___gun! These parts have been essential to me for a long time!

If I may ask, why are'nt they backward compatible with the original mod?

That was already done some day long before TurboNisu pack. But it was buried with old kerbal spaceport...

The fueled nosecones are what sold me on this mod. Finally a reason to make the craft look more aerodynamic.

Awesome! This pack has some of the best stock alike additions!

A nice pack of really useful parts. Legs, girders, small adapter and nosecones must be in stock.

I understand parts are renamed, so this mod cannot be used as update for original TurboNisu mod?

Please do this for 1.0..... the round tank and triangle plate is in 90% of EVERYTHING I BUILD.

I can't do KSP without it ;)

All you have to do is edit the cfg files. You change the 1 to a -1 and it works.

The round tank you mention is buggy, I can't find anything wrong with the triangle panel.

The fix is mentioned in the KW Rocketry thread, but you do this...

node_stack_bottom = 0.0, -0.156, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 0.0, 0

becomes

node_stack_bottom = 0.0, -0.156, 0.0, 0.0, -1.0, 0.0, 0

Try this fix - I have fixed the nodes and added "bulkheadProfiles" sizes so the parts sort properly. The tiny girders sort with probe parts. The big round tanks sort with the 1.25m stuff.

Let me know how it goes.

Aren't Temperature setting different now too?

But thank you for doing that I would have myself cause I still have to go in an add Tweakscale to some of them now anyway.

The link above is still correct but I have tweaked the nodes on the struts. Also remembered to add the readme and a link to the license.
