  1. In rescale I've found the information on the body parameter info (when you have a body focused in map view) to be accurate.
  2. I made a vessel with these and other near future parts to take a lander and crew out Gratian way at 2.5x scale that I quite like and thought I would share some pictures
  3. The patch is provided by SSPXR, so it is probably more proper to ask for help there. However, there is a config SSPXR-MKS-Extras.cfg. Contained within are patches for each part that reads like: @PART[*]:HAS[@MODULE[ModuleDeployableCentrifuge]]:NEEDS[MKS] { DeployedMass = #$mass$ @mass *= 0.4 @MODULE[ModuleDeployableCentrifuge] { DeployResource = MaterialKits DeployResourceAmount = #$../DeployedMass$ @DeployResourceAmount *= 600 %DeployedMassModifier = #$../DeployedMass$ @DeployedMassModifier *= 0.6 } } I believe removing these entries (ModuleDeployableHabitat and ModuleDeployableCentrifuge) should achieve the effect you want.
  4. hmm, my problems were observable at all speeds, so it is probably different.
  5. Terwin, I've had some heating problems myself. I think it might have something to do with the maximum core heat of all parts on a vessel. Do you by any chance have MPUs or other parts that produce heat in excess of your reactors limits? I think radiators may always try to cool the hottest part first, even if they are under a safe limit and other cooler parts are above their safe limit. Also, I do not believe NFE reactors explode on excessive heat, I think they melt down and the core is destroyed, but the part remains intact, though I have not a great deal of experience with this.
  6. papuchalk, you can either use stock docking or claws, Roverdude's construction mod if you don't want any join at all, or this pack includes some extensible claw like parts.
  7. KSPNoob, the model replacement is configured in GameData\StationPartsExpansionRedux\Patches\SSPXr-StockPartReplacements.cfg. If you were to edit/delete this file to prevent it making changes to the Squad parts and created a new config for each of the SSPXR parts I think you could have both the new and old models. AtilaElari, as far as I know stock parts go up to 2.5m. Near Future Construction has Annular Truss type parts with larger docking ports though. My own preference is to use USI construction ports to seamlessly weld.
  8. Well, there were a few things. First of all, my working practices aren't terribly efficient and I was finding myself with less time. Secondly, having achieved a release I thought 'well, that's done, now I can proceed at a more leisurely pace'. Thirdly, I was trying to work on more detailed parts and while I thought what was coming together wasn't terrible it wasn't terribly good either. Lastly, I'd rather hoped for these parts to fill a role in career mode, but was having trouble finding a way to make that balanced, and by the time I'd have the infrastructure myself in place the scene would be too laggy regardless.
  9. Regarding contracts, you can press Alt-F10 to open the Contract Configurator panel and see if anything is failing to load and why. For my part I had to remove the explicit reference to Gilly in StationCore.cfg. The mission to send a crew to a station also seems to be failing, but I've not looked into why that is.
  10. I am using GPP and GPP Secondary with FAR and it works, though I've not gotten out of the original system yet. Technically compatible at least, though if it interacts poorly with new planets I cannot say.
  11. My current career is currently based entirely around Mark IV launch vehicles (which is to say, if it takes off from the KSC, it lands at the KSC minus it's payload and fuel. Technically any space plane would do but time is more valuable than fuel so big is beautiful), I posted a picture of my first such earlier, but I've since iterated: It's capable of lofting a significant tonnage to orbit, my most recent mission has been to take 32,000 material kits to a low orbit space station (that I might find a loophole in my self-imposed limit) with about 1000dV left over. However here is what happened when I tried for 56,000 of the same: Which is not a complaint. This is to be expected of designing flimsy, load bearing joints even if they are aesthetically pleasing. Slowly falling apart on the runway without any explosions was just a comical means of failure. I've probably been pushing the bounds of credulity as it is.
  12. I'll likely make such eventually. Presently I'm working on something else, but simple geometry shouldn't be too ambitious so will probably be sooner rather than later.
  13. Right now they're just parts that sit on the terrain. I've considered fixed joint anchoring and noclip foundation parts as a possible solution (not sure if it is possible to have parts that clip through the ground but not other vessels), but right now that's a little beyond my current scope to be actively worked on.
  14. What people are managing to do with the few simple parts I've made rather exceeds my expectations. That looks very sophisticated. I'm sorry about the airlock thing. I think that it's a limitation of Ubiozur welding. Their forum thread: What sort of frame rate do you get?
  15. Fairly certain that's a comprehensive list.
  16. Whoops, looks like I had the wrong license on Spacedock. Hopefully not problematic, fixed now. For CLS the parts are configured on the part config itself rather then a patch document, as I did not foresee any likely reason why it would be necessary to switch modules up, and I see that I neglected to put a note indicating CTT support in the main. Is this problematic?
  17. Aye, I'm yet to make any industrial type parts, though they're likely coming. Probably in two stages: First, a basic decal version of the current functional cubes, then greebled up larger pieces. I could plausibly make the basic parts larger, I've just been enjoying trying to keep model/texture footprint as small as possible.
  18. It has occurred to me, looking at the command centre, that spacecraft parts on a cubic grid may have some merit. However my initial concept for these parts was to be made out of materials much easier to resource than rocket parts would require, thus a concrete analogue.Making parts light enough to be spaceship parts has the two concerns of it being difficult to build stable structures without tedious use of node blockers when designing and my own concern that it would be hard to balance my OG concrete parts against the new parts in the context of EPL/Ground Construction. I'm aiming to eventually make more detailed models for functional parts which will likely be larger than 2.5mx2.5m to either replace or supplement the stickered panel parts right now. I've considered larger basic parts as well for the sake of keeping part count down, but I'd like to avoid bloating the parts listings with many similar items. Most probably I'll have to have a look at making some IVAs then think about how I might best apply that to larger parts. Spacedock seems best, thank you. Should be most convenient for updating as well as it's just the one download link rather than a set of releases.
  19. I don't know, I'm not an engineer so I used this as an estimate. 12t seems about right. I'm not sure if KSP has an implicit scalar I'm not considering though, and given the way offworld construction mechanics work I've considered including swappable to build/to operate configs.
  20. Any Pathfinder config changes you feel appropriate shall be made, they're all neatly contained in a separate document for easy tracking.
  21. To the first, please do. To the second, they are not presently in the pipeline, but I should like to take a look eventually. Everything I've read suggests they're rather a pain, though, so I may put off learning how to do them and work on less daunting additions before I take a look.If @Angel-125 would like to make IVAs I'd be happy to incorporate them, I doubt I could make better. That said I should like to learn how to work them myself. I suspect what would be needed is a basic unwindowed cube 'command centre' for any functional part that has crew space, and an IVA for each windowed geometry piece.
  22. I'm happy to cooperate, if there is anything you should like from me.
  23. A very pleasant surprise, yes. Thank you @Kottabos. edit: That Terran Command Centre makes me very happy.
