  1. Given that Unity decided they want to retroactively change TOS and charge the developer for every install, does that mean KSP2 will switch engine? And how will you deal with KSP1, ask players nicely to stop installing it? I'm not mocking the devs here, it hurts me myself. Really curious what the team currently thinks about this development.
  2. Yet no 16:10 support, at least I wasn't able to configure it and had to "enjoy" black bars...
  3. Storing app data in, well, AppData, is actually the recommended way to do it, just a little annoying for the users. Maybe they could make it configurable in the future.
  4. First, I checked out how we are looking at the plugin mod front which took me a while. Then I decided to finally launch the game and do a simple launch-orbit-return mission to see what has changed. All went well until Jeb was about to splash down: the vessel "splashed" a couple of meters above the sea level and then was stuck (with parachute still deployed) a couple of meters below, bit of a disappointment for the first landing... Anyway, I feel like in the early days of KSP1: lots of promise and lots of bugs, but I'm confident we'll sort it all out eventually
  5. I admit I haven't even launched the game yet - found the DLL where I hoped it would be, will be busy here for a while EDIT: I was so happy that I might have stepped on some IP toes, removed a picture just in case
  6. Hi! I haven't played KSP in a couple years now, but today I felt like trying out all the new things that have been added in the meantime. With Breaking Ground (yeah, I bought all the DLCs even without ever trying them, because, you know, KSP vanilla was too cheap for the value back then anyway) it seems we no longer need KIS/KAS to transport parts and weld them to vessels - at least I thought so. I tried to attach an additional radiator to a vessel, but ran into the problem that the part is way to large to be put into a Kerbal's inventory. I can move the part to where it is needed by rover, no problem (makes sense that Kerbals can't carry a ton around) but I'm lost at how to get into "attach mode". With KIS/KAS the part was shown in a green glowing outline and while the Kerbal was close to the storage and the place I wanted the part to be placed I could just put it there and it appeared. How can I do that with the stock system? Or am I only able to use that system with parts <40l? Then why can I add bigger ones to the inventory at all? Thanks in advance guys!
  7. In an ideal world: both Start with a couple parts with a specific size [and resource for tanks]. Then later on allow to research procedural parts which allow to choose size[, shape][, resource] as needed. If no procedural parts are provided I think at least a scaling option (like TweakScale) should be in which also reduces part count (and clutter) in the editor.
  8. @Just Jim pm'd you a simple craft which shows the issue on my machine.
  9. @ZodiusInfuser awesome, thanks for figuring this out! @SQUAD: if you need anything else please notify me, otherwise I suppose you have enough information to pinpoint the issue.
  10. Of course. Just tried without all mods (no change) and then after verifying local files (2 files were re-downloaded) and without mods => still the same issue. I haven't used KSP in quite a while so I'm a little out of touch: is there some debug log/mode I can activate and send you? Yes, all stock except for a custom flag (but that shouldn't be an issue I guess). Actually, I think it's not your eyes but YT hating my video and restricting it to 480p
  11. Just got Breaking Ground and started to play around with the robotics parts. Put a lander can on pistons, hinges and a servo. Up/down & left/right works fine, but when rotating the IVA view does not follow the rotation. But: Navball does move After a timewarp the camera snaps to the correct position Tried to make a quick video (sorry for the poor quality but it should still show the issue)
  12. I'm talking about the view one gets when clicking the "View" button on the Kerbal portrait. I think it's just a bug, because the navball is rotating and I just discovered that the camera position snaps to the correct one after a timewarp. Trying to make short video, but would be interested to know if others see this behavior as well or if it's on my side.
  13. Was hyped, first thing I tried was a contraption with a lander can on a servo. IVA view does not move with the can's window - disappointed EDIT: to be exact up/down & left/right works, just the rotation doesn't
  14. Agreed. Until they get to it you can change the value in the settings.cfg file in your installation directory.
  15. Sorry for necroing this thread, but I remember reading Unity to be on a 4.6+ Mono by now. Is that relevant for KSP or are mods still stuck on a .NET 3.5 target?
  16. Boy, I'd love to have that much free time. 1000 hours, that's like, half a year of vacation (aka work-days not worked on)? My play-time is about one or two hours per week or so. Will take me only about 10 years to reach 1000 hours as well
  17. Saw the xkcd as well. Interestingly I can remember my exact thoughts: "Well, if it's good enough for Randall it's easily good enough for me", went to Steam and bought it.
  18. I might be missing your point here, but KSP has been released a year ago. This is not a beta despite the early-beta quality. Actually, that's the whole point: community says "we love KSP, but it has still a long way to go before release, please take your time", SQUAD says "naaah, it's fine, we'll release it anyway". Then the community demands release quality and people are surprised, because they look at the product and think "this has to be in beta still, what are those guys complaining about?" while in fact customers demand what the publisher promised (=release quality). Frankly, imho companies like SQUAD are one of the reasons software quality is broadly considered a bad joke nowadays. /rant end
  19. I'm missing the "Would you have preferred SQUAD finishing 1.1 before releasing it, not needing all those half-baked hotfixes and going on vacation whenever the individual people want to instead of all at once at the worst possible time" option. I pick that one.
  20. When I decided to take a look at 1.1 today I not only played KSP for the first time in months but also for the first time without mods in about two years. I quickly (I quit after half an hour or so despite the actually nice performance improvements) realized that I can’t enjoy KSP any more without the following mods as a bare minimum (in order of importance): MJ. Not only for the readout, but also because I happily admit that I suck at flying and get my enjoyment mostly from building things which I wouldn’t get anywhere interesting without the auto pilot. Procedural parts. While some seem to enjoy the challenge of working with the stock part selection I simply can’t. If KSP could load CAD files directly I’d probably sit down with SolidWorks designing several parts of a mission exactly the way I desire them to be. PP is far from perfect in this regard, but so much better than stock. KJR. Wobble and phantom forces are my fun killer number 1. FAR. I think it’s less a gameplay issue (since the areo overhaul) but more of a psychological thing that I need the feeling to know aerodynamics are actually calculated based on vessel shape not based on the parts it consists of. I know that this is only my very special point of view, but it really disappointed me today how desperately I was missing those mods (and others to a lower degree). The feeling was like getting into the car, anxious for a fun road trip just to realize the steering wheel is missing.
  21. I’m sorry if the advice was already given; might have been in one of the deleted posts or I overlooked it, but when I just read through the thread I got a pretty bad feeling about one aspect not bring mentioned: please don’t get an expensive server right away. I do encourage you to learn and create the application you have in mind. But I strongly suggest you start with a server on your local machine or at most get a cheap (<5$/month) hosting package. Once you see your website taking of you can still upgrade to strong, dedicated hardware and migrate quite easily. Full blown servers come with responsibilities and (depending on your income situation rather large) costs attached. Please, just don’t get yourself in a situation which may lead to serious regrets if things don’t go as planned. Best of luck!
  22. The design change is nice, but what I'm really hoping for is "stocking" yet another mod: freezing the menus on mouse-over so that they are actually usable and not rotate away with the vessel, which I consider rather annoying and not "fun".
  23. It does. Pro tip: to test share links just use a private browsing tab.
