[1.4.1] Fuel Tanks Plus 2.0.2 (2018-03-14)

Recommended Posts

I have that exact same poster on the wall next to my home computer. Great minds think alike. :-)

Indeed! That poster has been greatly inspirational in making these mods, for sure. :)

I think there is a error with the basepartmass for the TPtankTri in FuelTanksPlus_FuelSwitch.cfg . 0.125t sounds high when the TPtankTri.cfg says mass = 0.035t.

othervise this mod is great, It has become my mod of choose for building lifter-rockets, thanks

Cool, yeah, that was the base mass for the Xenon version. It's supposed to switch it with the fuel type, which it wasn't doing. I have it corrected for the next update.

Do you think you could use KSPAPIExtensions or FireSpitter Texture switch to handle the texture switching (and possibly the fuel content switching) in order to reduce the number of parts this mod creates?

That was already done a few weeks ago. ;)

Hi

why no tweak scale on those 2 items: 1m25 slanted nose tank and 1M25 nose tank.

I had those in the cfg file:

@PART[TPcone1m2]:NEEDS[TweakScale]

{

MODULE

{

name = TweakScale

type = stack

defaultScale = 1.25

}

}@PART[TPcone1m1]:NEEDS[TweakScale]

{

MODULE

{

name = TweakScale

type = stack

defaultScale = 1.25

}

Could you update it please ?

Woops! Yeah, I just missed those. I may put out an update today, since I don't have anything else pressing to add to it right now, and I won't have time for the next week afterward.

Well I think my way of making stockalike builds without realistic mods is contagious... actually I have tought about the Titan vectoring tanks (Yeah, Titan, not Centaur. Centaur is the 2nd Stage of Titan Family), but not on that way of changing the texture to 0.625 variants :rolleyes:

Well crap, you're right, I mixed that up. OK, next version will have it renamed Titan. :)

I have a strange bug to report.

There's the situation:

I. Tweakscale is used to scale down the 2.5m x200 48 and 96 tanks to 1.25m

II. The X200 48 weighs more even without fuel in it than the 96 does. The 48 weighs 3.2 tons, basically it's 2.5 meter mass instead of being half that of the 96, which weighs 1 ton tweaked down.

EDIT: Been playing with it some, and the tweakscale masses get so bizzare. Sometimes I tweak it down, and it says it weighs anywhere from .5 to .7 tons empty, then sometimes it is suddenly 3.2 tons.

EDIT 2: Apparently I was using an out of date version of this mod. Seems fixed with the newest version.

Noticed a cosmetic bug: The FL-A100-FTP adapter tank has its attachment nodes backwards - there's what looks like a 1.25m (small) attachment node on the 2.5m end, and a large 2.5m attachment node on the 1.25m end..

I don't think this actually matters in practice but it looks funny in the VAB...

Awesome. I was going to say that it was probably either a bug with TweakScale, or something wasn't installed correctly. Glad a version update fixed it.

It looks like it was backward on all of the new adapter cones. Doh! I'll get a fix out soon.

I dont know if it was asked before but: Will there be a "lite" pack? I really love to have those tanks but since I use all you packs my parts list is quite big now. I really love it simple and slim. Maybe when youre done with adding content you could make a "lite-compilation" wich includes the best of all your packs combined? That would be awsome.

I've done that myself but Its quite tedious updating it manually.:sealed:

No plans for a "Lite" version currently. As you said, it's a severe pain to keep multiple versions of the same things updated.

However! The good news is that FTP is much lighter on the menus than it used to be, by consolidating the various paint schemes into single parts. And also, if you want to ditch entire categories (for instance, the polygonal probe tanks, or radial tanks, etc), you can just delete those folders. Or, it would be possible to make a custom MM config that disables some of the parts, by assigning them a category of "-1".

That module manager thing sounds good to me. I might use that if I need to. Just reinstalled the game yesterday and didnt notice that the tanks are now "modular" that is just awsome and perfect. I dont want to spam all of your threads so Ill leave those ones here:

The new LaunchStabilityEnhancer from SpacY Enhanced have a toggle flag option but nothing happens if i click it. Works fine for the tanks but not the LSE.

And:

Just tested the parts from LET they are awsome. I cant wait to see the IVAs and additional parts.

And:

I just wanted to repeat my wish for a really overpowered "Sepratron"-like thing
