[0.90] ADIOS Tech Tree - V.15 - 12-03-2015

Recommended Posts

264qau0.jpg

I present to you ADIOS - A Dream Of Stars - a huge tech tree mod.

Recently it became much easier to gather a lot of RP points quickly and fill the tech tree in a few flights. As the career part of the game became a cakewalk i always wanted it to become much more challenging.

The current tech tree works fine with stock KSP but with so many mods out there it's becoming more and more crowded with each added part. At the beginning of 2014 we had a quite nice tech tree mod for 0.23 and 0.23.5 called Realistic Progression Lite. I really loved it but it wasn't being updated since 0.24 and i really wanted to fill that gap that was left behind. And thanks to the tech manager mod it became possible.

So here it is:

- 211 technologies

- 77174 Total RP necessary to completely fill the tech tree

There are still a few quirks here and there but what is really necessary right now is testing. There is only so much one person can do with this much material especially when mods are being updated daily.

Currently there are no descriptions for the techs - not really a priority for the moment as it's only flavor text but it's going to be filled in one of the updates :) If someone has some ideas for them send me a pm it will give me more time to work in other areas :)

Wow, that's a lot of techs... now if only someone can go and figure out how to get the nice descriptive groupings that you've provided to display in the tech view. :D

This looks very interesting and a possible alternative to the Mod Oriented Tech Tree :) One question, does this also include stock nodes so that mods not specifically supported will work without issue? :)

Actually there is a bug with stock ksp contracts. If the stock nodes aren't integrated into the tech tree the contract system will hang and you can't get any new contracts. There is a walkaround where the node name is different than the title visible to the player and that's the way i've done it.

Example:

techID = generalRocketry

title = Unmanned Rocketry

The game (and the contract system) will see this as a stock node called GeneralRocketry but the player will see a Unmanned Rocketry node ingame. So whether anyone likes it or not the stock tree is integrated ( after adding unsupported mods the parts unallocated will be in some silly places but if that happens just give me a shout what mod to integrate and i'll try to put it in the next update). The tech tree is very easily adjustable and adding parts is a 10 minute job.

I'm liking what I'm seeing Arachnidek! I was working on an engineering discipline based version of the tech tree but stopped releases when TreeLoader support stopped. I've puttered with mine, but don't want to release anything until after 1.0. Maybe we can get together in the future and swap ideas.

I like it. I am going to give it a try. downloaded all specified mods. perhaps you could provide links to them? or a package deal of them if that isn't breaking any licencing rules?

Love it! Will definitely be book marking this page. I wish you luck with this project. The stock tech tree gets boring after awhile.

V.08 released.

I think i've got that nasty contract breaking bug squashed.

@Sierrification

Sadly i can't make a modpack without asking each and every author of the mods i've included for their permission. Sorry but it's impossible. You can try CKAN it's a great tool for downloading mods.

Also I'm going to include links in the main post for every mod i support ... tomorrow (it's off to work in 20 minutes today :P )

@Probus

Sure let's brainstorm :)

Thanks everyone for all the encouragement.

Anyway enjoy :)

can you please put this mod up on CKAN?

the only one i could not find on CKAN was Better Than Starting Manned - 1.66.

i tried it last night and so far i'm liking what you are doing here.

have you tried this in career mode? I've started playing that and i'm wondering if it will work with any of the contract packs that are out there?

Nice Mod!!

Can you add compatibility to KW Rocketry please?

I second this.

A lot of people prefer KW over Novapunch, the quality of KW is pretty top notch.

@bileniv

As long as the contract pack doesn't have some unusual dependencies it should work fine. By unusual i mean it doesn't have a tech node requirement that isn't in the stock tree or this tech tree. Also it won't work if there is a part requirement that isn't installed. If that would be the case it shouldn't crash but the contract just won't show ingame.

CKAN soon.

@Thestormeffect,@StarLiner

Look forward to the next version. There is going to be a few new mod compatibility KW Rocketry being one of them.

This mod looks absolutely amazing and fueled me with the idea for a Let's Play series. I'll be using your tech tree and modlist and man am I excited.

Booyah!

I love how this tree starts from the center and works its way out depending on the path you choose. I'm eager to see where it goes.

I'm wondering why you put Better than Starting Manned in the "highly recommended" category. I'v never used that mod because I was under the impression it was a sort of "total converstion" mod much like his minecraft version, and it's not designed to be played alongside other mods.

Strangly all i get in the downoad, in your folder is a licence and a readme ... where is the file? i really want to try this one out...

@ maculator

There are 2 folders in the archive. One is called Adios the other Tech Manager. You need to copy both of them over to your gamedata folder in ksp.

Here is a quick installation guide (from the readme file):

1. Install MODULE MANAGER.

2. Install TECH MANAGER.

3. Install whatever mods you like (check the recommended ones - if your prefered mod isn't on the list it still should work but the parts included in that mod might be in funny places).

4. Copy gamedata files from this package (Techmanager and Adios directories) into your KSP/Gamedata directory.

5. When starting a new game on the tech manager window check the Adios tech tree and play.

I've provided forum links for the modulemanager and techmanager in the main post.

@Borisbee

If i remember correctly this mod was for the "deliver X to orbit" contracts. I'm going to have a look at this.

What i mean is: The Archive, i downloaded from Kerbalstuff, is not complete. I have the Techmanager and i also have module manager and the mods i like, the only thing that i miss is the .dll or whatever is supposed to be in the archive besides the installations and the readme inside the ADIOS folder:

I Checked it 3 times yesterday, and right now i testet it again, its missing.

I just downloaded the file and checked myself. The config is in the treemanager folder under Adios in the download link. I think you're looking in the wrong folder.

If I may make a suggestion, what about adding Mechjeb's modules to the tech tree? Make them mid-late game-ish. I don't know if Mechjeb ever got itself to work properly with FAR, but just being able to have the game warp to a node and execute it is really convenient. And by my 50th launch, I've darn well earned it!

For some reason, it isn't showing up on CKAN, but that's okay. It might be on my end.
