  1. Amazing! Don't overwork yourself too much. If you need help, I did a bit of cfg twiddling before
  2. What's the difference between piston and jet config for AJE?
  3. Yep, I've got FAR installed. I built roughly a King Air, with two PT-6 and a weight of 5 tons. However, the performance is really inferior, even when I switched for the 950 HP turboprop.
  4. Is there any plan to update this mod? The prop engines seem really under powered in 1.8.1
  5. If it can help, the console is spamming this Log here here is an interesting part EDIT: Fixed it by installing solverengines directly from the github.
  6. I've been having a blast with this mod and the GAP pack! However, I'm running into a problem with Sigma Dimensions. The bases show up on map mode only when zoomed in enough. I'm pretty sure it's because KK "unloads" base icons when you're too far to save memory or something. It's not gamebreaking, just that I can't see most base icons in map mode. Kerbin is resized to earth scale. Is there some cfg I can edit to change it?
  7. A good idea I considered, but I wanted to keep it as simple as possible and I don't have much experience in 3D modeling. I guess I could go this way, although I have considered another possibly simpler solution by making the command modules consume the same resource as engines do (the engines would not shut down, but the command parts would)
  8. Any leads to how to do this? Would I have to use module manager?
  9. Hello I am working on a personal rebalance for more realistic combat in BDA, and one of the requirements I had was to find a way to have players build realistically sized planes. I am hoping to partially achieve this by modifying "short" (wheesley, panther, all node attaching engines) jet engines to require an "engine space" resource for use, and creating heavy, fuel-free engine space Mk1 fuselages to occupy this space and thus make players have build larger planes for better engine performance (as irl). I've been messing around with .cfg files for a while but I don't have any real modding experience. I am hoping to do this by assigning a constant production rate of this resource to the engine space part, but I am having trouble making the engine itself consume at constant rate. Afaik, all fuel consumption is related to throttle, and I have not been able to create a constant throttle independent consumption rate. } PROPELLANT { name = enginespace ignoreForISP = True ratio = 40 This is what I've put under my modified Panther's resource consumption for wet and dry modes, but as I said it is currently affected by throttle. If this can help, here is a definition of the resource. RESOURCE_DEFINITION { name = enginespace displayName = Engine space abbreviation = ES density = 0.005 unitcost = 10 hsp = 400 flowMode = ALL_VESSEL transfer = PUMP isTweakable = False isvisible = False unitCost = 1 volume = 1 Could anyone enlighten me as to how to solve this problem?
  10. I have also noticed an "observer bias" where observed teams of same aircraft consistently lose matches by either not firing weapons or pulling harder on the controls than the other team's equivalents, and one of my friends have also noticed the same. I've mitigated it by testing from a spectatir that's a cockpit with a few i-beams to keep it straight which I named "the judge" and it fixed the problem. Would be interesting to know the reason of this.
  11. Yep, am aware how the team is doing a good job, and faced the problem of balancing stuff myself when i first started doing balancing for my version of BDA. Pretty hard testing and retesting until it seems balamced then noticing one aspect of the weapon is imbalanced. I do have knowledge of hoe AP and HE works, have been in wargames and studying (although only on hobby level) armored and aerial warfare. I do understand that APHE rounds are seldom used these days and it's mostly pure APDS solid rods or pure HE or HEAT. Problem with the current armor/HP system is that HP and armor can both kill a part, and HP degradation is independent of armor. The armor depletion works good as far as I'm concerned, but problem is that you can just spam low AP high HE rounds (ex 20mm) and destroy a thick armor plate with something it would be mostly immune to irl by draining the HP, something the M230 and goalkeeper rely on. It's kind of like a WoT/WoWP style of damage and not some simili War Thunder or Wargame Red Dragon type of HP damage I'm trying to emulate. In WG:RD heavy AP rounds can damage heavy armor, but small AP and small HE rounds (ex a 30mm M230) can also damage armor, but only by tiny increments. You'd need to fire for minutes at a T-80BV's rear armor with a Apache's gun to entirely kill it. In BDA with turret weakness (while irl tanks' turrets are most often their most well armored part to protect crews) a tank is quickly rendered useless with such a gun, sometimes even before the armor itself pops off. My take on it was to consider HE damage on armor by small bullets and autocannons (sub 30mm) to be negligible on armor but significant on lighter armored vehicles. AP would cause damage to heavier armored vehicles, and heavy HE shells would fall out of the context since they're most usually used against infantry in a modern context. Thus I'd sacrifice a middle ground between heavy and light vehicles, and create an AP/HE balance more around light maneuverable wheeled vehicles or planes and heavy slow vehicles. Unarmored vehicles would be vulnerable to all including 50 cals, light armor would be vulnerable to anything bigger than 2 AP and something like say 10 HE, heavy armor would shrug off most HE and suffer only from AP. Armor wear would be assumed to be negligible when coming to the last category. As for pure APDS (high AP 0 HE) shells also doing lots of damage to light armored vehicle, ingame it would be reasoned by spalling damage, something which makes pure solid AP shells viable irl and not just go through tanks like butter and do no damage. ATGMs would have a high enough HE armor to destroy both and act as HEAT round which works good on generally all kinds of armor, and justify craft destruction by assuming spall and crew placement absorb the damage (even if there is none) It would have disadvantages compared to current BDA, most notably perhaps removing the branch of medium tanks from the balance, and the inability to portray heavier HE rounds that can also hurt big armor, but I'm aiming for a balance style more towards advantages and disadvantages for most building styles. If you need help testing I'm always available. I've been modifying BDA and balancing it for a discord RP I participate in, and building lots of vehicles for the last year (although very few are posted on the forums). You can ask @Spartwoor @THIRTY9CLUES if you want some history of me, and I also reccoment them both for play testing as they have extensive experience. I've been wanting to rebalance BDA to make it more realistic for a while, and I'd be happy to help make it happen
