  1. I created a feedback report explaining the situation in detail. https://bugs.kerbalspaceprogram.com/issues/24853
  2. SpaceWarp 2.0: Help Us Shape the Future of Modding! Dear KSP 2 Modding Community, We're thrilled to have grown alongside you as the SpaceWarp modding API project evolved from its inception in version 0.1 as a simple mod loader, to a community-driven modding API in version 1.0, to where we are now. Your continuous support and feedback have been invaluable in making SpaceWarp better. As we look to the future, we're excited to announce that we are beginning work on SpaceWarp 2.0, a new chapter in our modding journey! Learning and Growing Together Our journey through 1.x has been filled with learning experiences. We've listened to many of your suggestions, and have recently introduced some significant updates, such as: specification versions - allowing for major changes while still keeping older mods compatible, codeless part mods - to empower non-programmers who want to make KSP 2 mods, Lua support - for simple scripting without the need to learn C# and .NET, experimental support for the official mod loader - to help us prepare for the future. Those are just a few of the new features that SpaceWarp has seen added during the 1.x development cycle. Your valuable feedback has helped shape SpaceWarp 1, and we're grateful for that. SpaceWarp 1.5 - A Smooth Transition Before we dive into the details of SpaceWarp 2.0, let's talk about SpaceWarp 1.5, the next transitional step, and the last update in the 1.x series. We are going to mark all APIs that will be removed or changed as deprecated, and introduce their replacements, giving you a sneak peek of the changes coming in 2.0. That way, while your existing 1.x mods will continue working in 1.5, you will have enough time to prepare them for the major update ahead. Preparing for the Future We hear you loud and clear – KSP 2 modding shouldn't have to be tied to an external mod loader when there’s an official one on the way. That's why we're working towards making SpaceWarp fully compatible with both BepInEx and the currently unreleased official mod loader. That way, your mods written for SpaceWarp 1.5 and later should require only minimal changes to support the official mod loader once it arrives. SpaceWarp 2.0 - Modularization and Flexibility One of the key architectural differences in SpaceWarp 2.0 is the shift towards modularization. As the library has grown over the past few months, it has gotten to a point where a single project containing all the very diverse APIs and features is simply not sustainable anymore. We want to make SpaceWarp more flexible, so it has enough room to grow in the future without unnecessary complexity, in both the development phase, and in the integration, testing and release phases. Here are just some examples of the module structure we're considering: SpaceWarp.Core – The core mod contract and everything necessary to make a simple mod load in-game. SpaceWarp.UI – Including app bar buttons, UI skins, and other UI-related functionalities. SpaceWarp.Game – Abstractions of game APIs, enabling seamless interactions with many parts of the game’s code without having to worry about game updates breaking your mods. SpaceWarp.Audio – For handling of audio-related features and functionalities. The Right Approach We are currently considering two different approaches to the modularization of SpaceWarp: Approach 1: The Modular Monolith: We would split the SpaceWarp modules into individual projects and .DLL files, while keeping them all part of a single mod, single version, and single release zip. This approach maintains the current setup for end users and modders, keeping SpaceWarp as a monolithic, but not as tightly coupled library that covers various functionalities. The separation of concerns into multiple projects within the SpaceWarp solution will enable easier code management for contributors. Approach 2: Modular to the Max: SpaceWarp would be divided into separate smaller mods, each with its own swinfo.json file, versioning, and independent releases. Modders and players can then selectively use only the modules they need, improving customization and reducing unnecessary bloat. Community contributions to specific parts of SpaceWarp become more streamlined, as contributors can focus on individual modules without affecting unrelated components, making it easier for multiple people to work on many distinct parts of SpaceWarp at the same time independently. *For the sake of transparency – this is the approach that we are currently leaning towards the most, but we want to hear your opinions! Simplifying Installation for Players We understand that ease of installation is crucial for players. While approach 2 (Modular to the Max) brings with it more complexity when it comes to user experience when installing SpaceWarp, we're exploring solutions to mitigate this, such as always providing an always updated all-in-one download option for those who prefer simplicity, or the possibility of only installing the core SpaceWarp mod as a lightweight entry point, which will then prompt you to either download the modules your mods depend on manually, or even download and install them for you. We Value Your Feedback! Your opinions matter to us! We're building SpaceWarp together, and your insights are integral to shaping its future. We'd love to hear what you think about the two approaches we've shared: Are you more inclined towards Approach 1 (The Modular Monolith) or Approach 2 (Modular to the Max), and why? How do you think we can enhance the installation experience for players? Do you have any other suggestions for what you’d like to see in SpaceWarp 1.5 and 2.0? Please share your feedback here, or in the KSP 2 Modding Society Discord server, where the development of SpaceWarp and most KSP 2 mods takes place, for a more real-time discussion! Join Us on This Exciting Journey! SpaceWarp 2.0 promises a more flexible and future-proof modding experience. Thank you for being a part of this journey with us. Your contributions and feedback help us make SpaceWarp better every day, and we hope that we can all help the KSP 2 modding community one day reach the inspiring heights of its predecessor. Let's shape the future of KSP 2 modding, together!
  3. [Tutorials] are great. The onboarding is well designed, the animations are funny and beautiful. I enjoyed the learning experience through the Training Center system. I also like the P.a.i.g.e voice and the text is direct and clear. [Sound] the music and sound design is amazing, very good work! [VAB] the little ball that appears when attaching parts is very useful to determine 3D position (it's great) [VAB] I like how the camera re-centers on a part, after moving it, when right-clicking. [Simulation Mode] I like how the faint RGB pixels look [Parts] the procedural wings make it less intimidating to try to build an airplane, they're awesome I like the vibe and idea of a Kerbal Operating System Interface on top of a realistic looking world The parts look amazing. 10/10 The new craft coloring system is very cool for creativity and making a design feel like it's yours The plumes look very good, I like how dynamic they are and how they vary with every engine / booster The terrain reflections in the Tracking Station for celestial bodies like Eeloo, Pol and Minmus are eye candy. Dres, Mun and Duna look very nice and realistic. I enjoy how the new KSC is set up, it feels good to drive and fly around The way information is structured around the navball is intuitive, I like how the 'tapes' feel and I really like the subtle transparency of the navball cluster. I really like how the clouds look when seen from below sometimes, they're realistic but dreamy The new cinematic trailer is beyond words. Epic, marvelous, funny, emotional! Great cinematics, my all time favorites! The KSC Buildings Overview menu (the white transparent one) is eye candy, beautiful and modern (also the clean look of the Training Center using the same style) The Tracking Station menu structure is compact and logical The trees are beautiful seen from up close The kerbals walking and running animations look natural and funny at the same time. I think Jeb just scratched his butt and farted. LOL Actually now that I'm looking more carefully.. I really like the way the kerbals look.. with the cartoony head inside a realistic helmet and suit. I actually think the kerbals look great! Physics warp is very stable - I drove a rover and walked a kerbal and also flew an airplane at 4x speed without any issues. Combined with precision controls.. flying at 4x feels as natural as flying at 1x. Really great job! I think this is one of my favorite features so far. I don't think I can go back to flying at 1x. LOL I'm fascinated and a little intimidated by the (number of) camera angles.. there's a lot of diversity: some are very cinematic, others are made for racing. I enjoy how accessible the time warp controls are - I tend to use them with the mouse now rather than with the keyboard. And having a Pause button is GREAT! I like that the max distance we can zoom out of a craft feels like it's smaller than in KSP1. This way the craft is always in view and it feels less cheaty when looking around. The trim indicators integrated in the navball cluster are very useful! After playing for some hours I feel like most of the bugs I've encountered are cosmetic and easily fixable. I'm enjoying the game (especially flying airplanes). It's nice that actions now apply to all the parts in the symmetry. I like that the struts are more realistic and break more easily. I find it interesting that the fairings feel like they have weight and can do real damage if not deployed correctly. I like how massive the planets feel when orbiting them.. I think it's because of the higher level of detail of the terrain seen from above. I love the fact that now we can stage while in Map View! Landing on Eve is one of the most beautiful experiences I've ever had in KSP. What a masterpiece! Later edit: After also landing on Duna I am in awe. This is art. I like how tall and steep the terrain is on Dres. The planet has become one of the most interesting in the game now due to the rings, tilt, canyons, mountain range. And the rainbow lighting effects underwater. Also the incidental lighting from celestial bodies thanks to the new planet shine system. And really like how eclipses of planets with atmosphere look. Pol looks amazing when close, probably the celestial body with the most interesting terrain. The anomalies on Duna, Tylo and Mun are very high quality objects. I think the lore is going in a fascinating direction.
  4. With the power available to computers today the game needs much better accountability for part damage. I should know when the failure occured, where it occured, and what the stress forces involved were at a minimum. This information should never be unaccounted for or erased from the log in any way. Amen.
  5. "Broken, but I love it." That's my review, left with a thumbs up on steam. Short, and simple. Here on the forums however, I'd like to go in to even more detail about my feedback at about 8 hours or so of gameplay. I'm also going to break this feedback up in to sections, Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats. (Threats simply mean competition and other issues that could threaten the viability of the project. Not actual threats.) Strengths * Visuals - Far and above KSP1 stock, and (while some would argue) at or at least on par with "Remastered" KSP1 (EVE, Scatterer, Parallax & TUFX) * User Interface - A strong solid start and foundation, missing some critical features but over all a clear and easy to read UI that seems to have accessibility for those like me with vision issues in mind. * Sound - A solid home run and absolute 10/10 here. Absolutely amazing sounds design in the UI, RCS pops, SRB crackles, tire noises, etc * Dynamic Music - Yet again, an absolute 10/10 home run here. The dynamic sound track changing music on scene change is just downright amazing and I want to buy the soundtrack please. * New Parts - 367 total parts puts KSP2's part count well and truly above KSP1's at 333 * New Parts: Proc Wings - Procedural Wings are here to replace dozens of "modular wing" parts and in doing so, give us even MORE creativity and power in vehicle construction. This is just an amazing addition. * Workspace and Vehicle Assembly - Far and above just flat out better compared to Stock KSP1, could use some work, and some better camera controls, but still a solid foundation. * Planets - What a giant step up! Axial Tilt? Actual rings? Ground Scatter on a per biome basis? Easter Eggs galore, and so much potential. Well done. Leaps and bounds above KSP 1. * The New KSC - Just amazing. The new KSC is sprawling and massive and just feels like a real life space center and campus. * Customization - Part coloring and customization is a fantastic addition. * Load Times - Another thing I see pointed out and also matters to me, load times are vastly improved. * VAB Updates - Part Manager, Trip Planner, Action Group Planner and Kerbal Manager, as well as the Change Anchor Part are all fantastic additions or overhauls to existing features. * VAB Updates Part 2 - Snap Mode updates, as wel las symmetry updates and orthographic view, all good changes and refinements. * Tutorials - These are adorable, and well suited for teaching new players, and young ones, getting in to space flight. * Aerodynamics - Fantastic feeling new aero, love flying and gliding planes. Weaknesses * User Interface and User Experience - The UI is missing several critical features and functions, The most disappointing of which, for me personally, is the Dv tools app in KSP 1. You've given us a trip planner, but that trip planner is lacking critical features such as allowing us to calculate Dv based on body, atmosphere and more. This needs to be in the game sooner rather than later. * No KSPedia - Massively Missed Opportunity that needs to be in KSP 2 to reach feature parity for UI/UX. * No Missions and no Mission Builder - Another massive missed opportunity. * No scenarios that are not based in tutorials. * The Kerbolar System was Not Expanded - Another opportunity here to add planets akin to OPM and bring in analogs of the gas giants and pluto. Sad to see the same kerbol system without new worlds to explore. * Water - Buoyancy issues, water rendering issues, parts floating and parts sinking and no way to tell why... the water looks pretty, but it's going to need a lot of work. * Missing Thermal parts and thermal dynamics at launch - This was a mistake. This is a CRITICAL part of spaceflight and the absolute wrong decision to make. It should have been a priority to get in for 0.1.0 including radiator parts that we're missing from KSP1. * Even without science mods and science parts, we're missing the basics of Kerbnet including comm net lines, and planet scanning features that make exploration even more fun and rewarding by sending out mapping probes to find landing spots and easter eggs. I have no idea why this was left out, and if it's coming back or not, https://wiki.kerbalspaceprogram.com/wiki/KerbNet - Get this back in the game please. * Orbital UI/UX - There are a lot of issues here with maneuver node planning and ui elements not showing more clearly intercepts, approach distances, etc. * No Custom Flag Support - Please get this back in, it's crucial for player identity and connection with the game. * Lack of Ease of Access in regards to Craft Sharing - This needs to be looked at as well, sharing craft is tedious and needs to be integrated into the steam workshop just like KSP1. * Noodle Rockets - This is a CRITICAL issue that needs to be the single largest priority to fix and it needs to be fixed in the first post launch patch. We shouldn't have to resort to day one or day to mods to fix this. Large vehicles are very unfun to fly and struts seem to do nothing. This is heartbreaking to see back in KSP2 after the lessons learned from KSP1. Auto Strut needs to be back ASAP. * SAS - The SAS bugs out incredibly often and causes lots of flight issues. * Total Control Input loss - this happens far to often and destroys the gameplay experience. * Terrain Mesh issues - Floating Scatter, Kerbals Floating in the air above the terrain, and scatter sprites are broken. * Flight Camera - The camera is unfortunately completely unusable at times, bugging out, or just failing to respond. Opportunities The opportunities here are massive. We know that with Orbital Vehicle Construction, Colonies, Delivery Routes, Interstellar Travel to new star systems, multi player and dedicated in-game mod support... we stand to see this game not only grow to meet feature parity with KSP1 but surpass it in terms of stock supported content. Building this game on a new architecture will see KSP 2 becomes the Skyrim of space modding, surpassing it's predecessor in mod functionality. The modding and community engagement aspects at play must not be forgotten about or underestimated. I might be biased as a community manager for several games over my career, but you're on the right track with your community engagement on the forums and social media. Threats (Things that could hurt KSP 2 as a project.) * Price Tag - This was a mistake. It's incredibly high for an EA game and has no doubt cost a lot of sales. I worry about the future of the project if sales targets and goals aren't met. * Lack of Communication before Launch - The communication we got was good, but we simply needed more open communication from the team. I hope we get more as we move forward * Direct Competitor - Other direct space flight simulation games are coming to market and releasing out of EA and competing with KSP 2 by offering better features in some areas. * Not only is the Kraken not slain, it's back with a vengeance and I would argue worse than KSP 1 at its current version and this can end a gameplay session outright through frustration. I think that's about it from me, and while I might have more, I think this gets all my points across. Overall, I'm happy, excited, optimistic and hopeful. The future is bright and I look forward to another grand adventure in KSP2. Working on KSP 1 was the entry point and absolute highlight of my career and I got to meet wonderful people, in Mu, Harv, C7, Nova, CptSkunky, Marco, etc. Talented, lovely, dedicated people that gave their all to KSP 1. I see that in this team, a group of people who truly care and I wish for your success in every possible way. I'm glad to be along for the ride again as a player and lover of KSP and a lover of space. -RC

    As we wait for the game to become more stable, I wanted to bring up the topic of story. While the main focus of this game should be creativity and a realistic space simulator it’s always important to have a reason to explore beyond just landing on new planets. I feel it is one of the main things the previous game lacked. I know the devs have ideas and probably a few things already in the works in regards to story with a few of those being already hinted at in videos and models found in the files. However, It’s important for the story to not simply be just Easter eggs, but actually be something interesting that ties the world together and drives the player to explore other planets and star systems. The closest thing that comes to mind is The Outer Wilds which is a masterpiece with this concept. (If you haven’t played it, play it now) I will not spoil it here. If the devs could capture at least 10% of what The Outer Wilds does with its way of story telling and driving the player to explore planets for the sake of exploration and uncovering a mystery, it would make this game much more engaging and may also entice a wider audience. It would help planets not feel like barren lifeless spheres but like they have some mystery to them, something to uncover and some reason to be there. It could even tie into mining and resource gathering like “the player must drill down beneath the monument to learn of the xyz to and understand the next step” Adding the story into other science tools such as signal systems, telescopes, terrain and thermal mapping systems etc as well would be expected and an exciting experience. Imagine getting a strange signal from a distant planet or star system you need to triangulate. Now you have to setup sensors on different planets to get a fix. What if mapping the planet with SCANsat revealed something undetectable to the naked eye? Need to build a rover to get there Find a strange mark on the planet? Turns out material analysis shows that the dirt is not native to this planet. Wonder where it could be from. Things like that, but have them tie together into a deeper mystery, not a simple Easter egg. Thoughts?
  7. In general I have been supportive of the game after launch, I have not criticized things that will surely be fixed by the devs.. it's all part of the EA process. This feedback looks past the technical issues and the lego building aspects of the game. Assuming the first EA release had no bugs and performed well.. what is there to explore in the game? Well, not a lot. The celestial bodies look good when seen from far away / high orbit, which really makes them unique and interesting. But when you get closer the terrain is not great. It will probably be improved with higher resolution textures and more polygons when the performance budget will be available. Anyway, I have done complete visual orbital surveys of all the planets and moons searching for anomalies or special terrain features that stand out. I have found very few. It seems that, at least for now, there is not much creative content in the game. I don't see reasons to hop a lander or drive a rover or fly a plane around looking for interesting stuff. It's just not there. You basically have 1.. or maybe 2 interesting and unique things to see on each planet or moon. Other than that, yes there are some biomes like craters, hills, valleys, mountains. But there is nothing special there, no interesting scatter, no fascinating natural objects. The planets and moons feel as barren and empty as KSP1... for now. And this is a surprise because the devs always said in the feature videos (paraphrasing): "the planets are great, everyone's gonna love the planets".. "exploration is a much bigger motivation now" .. "some of the things the creative team is cooking up.. it will blow you away" etc. It just feels like a great waste of space, with no real reason to go exploring over the next hill. There should be more "wow" moments than just arriving at a nice looking planet with beautiful music and landing once. Hopefully more content will be added (the Duna and Tylo anomalies are very high quality and the Vall place is very interesting). Also: please limit the camera zoom-out when in low orbit. We can basically zoom out and move the camera close to the ground anywhere. It kind of spoils the fun of landing and roving. The zoom is limited when landed, I think this should also apply in low orbit.
  8. This is a pretty simple one. Give me a way to tell KSP2 to "stay in its lane" and keep its save data in the game's install folder, where it (at least in my personal opinion) belongs. I have 1 save game, with just a couple dozen vehicle (attempts, with little success due to bugs) and I have nearly 250MB of data in my %appdata% now. I can easily see this growing since the breakdown so far is about 50% crash data, and 50% game saves a 1 vehicle workspace is about 4MB of JSON data and a save file seems to contain a primary file between a couple KB and 6ish MB and then a set of four autosaves at 4MB each for a total of about 25MB of save data for a game with no active missions and just some junk I cant delete so I expect this to significantly grow in size with active missions, as it appears to be keeping the entire vehicle hierarchy in the main save in addition to any individual workspace files. (I'll update this if I manage to get multiple things into space and save without crashing so I can tell if the file size increases correspondingly) Crash data for this game is at a little over 3MB per crash, and the KSP crash reporting currently has 39 crash report files. Which feels pretty close to the number of times the game has crashed to desktop on me. So I expect this folder is just growing without any limit, which I have no issue with in normal circumstances, but given how many crashes I have in 27hrs, thats less than 1hr per crash, this will likely grow to a significant size and cause issues with my main user "windows" drive. My C drive is not my biggest drive, never has been, its often my smallest. Ive got media files on HDDs, project and asset file asset dirs on larger SSDs I can easily drop into a new machine if anything happens to this one, and a more expensive M2 PCIe NVME drive for the stuff that needs high IO like my development environments so the compiler can pull all the small files together, etc... and spread out across all of these are steam libraries with the location chosen based on how I feel... tiny 30MB game, chuck them all on the spinning rust, they arent big enough i care, large game I rarely play and dont mind the load time, sure HDD again, game I like and want to be able to open quickly, maybe on the SSD, game I want to load as fast as possible or hate any interruption while playing, maybe that gets a place on the expensive high IO NVME... I gave KSP2 a spot on that NVME drive, but it seems to want to put its data on my slower windows drive... and fill it up with crash reports. This is silly. I dont want yet more junk in %appdata% If I delete KSP2, I want to delete KSP2, that means all the data gone, not taking up extra space somewhere else. Having a hard coded one true directory where every version of KSP2 puts save files, feels like it will cause issues with conflicting files between different versions of KSP2 once we have updates and start having to deal with things like Mod compatibility between versions of KSP2 Early access = lots of bugs, lots of bugs means lots of crash reports, lots of crash reports mean filling up my windows drive, don't fill up my windows drive. %appdata% isn't %tmp% (not that windows is particularly good at keeping %tmp% clean) don't fill it up. Just give me a place in the global config or something like that, where I can say "data files live in the game directory"... or better yet, make that the default behavior, because the current one doesn't make sense for a game that expects to have a modding community in the future. The current default will either need workarounds to avoid conflicting save file versions between multiple copies of KSP, or its going to cause problems... or a different save directory can just avoid the issue entirely.
  9. Hi, I tried KSP2 and these are my first impressions and suggestions. I made a list and divided into two parts the casual and the important list. So I launched KSP2 for the first time and my first thought was, can I run the game? And I could! But I have a GTX 1650 and it was ok I had 10-20 FPS and 60-ish in the VAB (low graphics, 1080) so here comes my first worry about the game: Can the devs optimise it so much that I can launch a 1k+ part rocket without lag and an ok FPS e.g. 30-35? And I don't know because if not then I don't know the interstellar travelling how will be achieved without a high end PC. I'm worrying about the noodle rockets because how would I launch a massive rocket if it's wiggling around I don't think this was a good idea to keep this feature. But yet I'm hopeful (good luck dev team ). And what I got for this FPS? A very good looking KSP2 and the graphics didn't get bad even if I'm playing at low settings. When I started playing I got into the VAB and started building a rocket to orbit. One of the first things I encountered was the controls and the green highlight lines those were quite annoying for me. I think if they would be thinner they wouldn't be annoying. The new parts are really good and I'm wondering what could I do with them when the performance will be better. And the engines were very nostalgic and I think later in the development they could get other forms like the engines in KSP. But I didn't like that the DeltaV calculator wasn't working properly in the VAB and didn't show me DeltaV / stage data. I hope this will get fixed soon. So when I finished the rocket I put it into the launchpad and watched the countdown I really liked it. And when it launched the sounds were very good too. But when I got into the higher atmosphere I encountered with a really weird thing. I couldn't turn my rocket trough the orbital prograde marker (I had a Mammoth engine and wings) but fortunately after I decupled it fixed (sometimes I couldn't decouple the fix was to change the decoupler into separator and back and constantly launching). And the gyroscopes were very weak. When I wanted to make the orbit I could pin the Ap and Pe but when I switched into the maneuver node they disappear it was quite annoying both of them because I could pin the Ap but not as easily as in KSP sometimes they just weren't appear. And the last thing I think maybe the communication e.g. about the recommended specs. Because the devs could publish this sooner and say that "Sorry the performance will be bad at day 1 but we will fix it as quickly as possible" or anything other then "we take your feedback very seriously", something to calm down the community. And I'm still excited about the game and would like to hear about the coming updates just a bit more. Overall I thing the KSP2 can be a really good game if the performance get better and some quality of life features get into the game. I say good luck to the developer team and I hope they can fix the game. Important list: -Performance -TWR -DeltaV Tools (from KSP): I would like to see my TWR and DeltaV on different celestial bodies. If the celestial body has atmosphere then what are my DeltaV stats. And TWR / stage, and not just the first stage's TWR. -Auto struts -Controls in the VAB: I miss the KSP controls from the VAB because it's really bug me that I cant scroll for moving up and down (It's really helpful for rocket building) and the new method is really slow (but it might be a bug idk), the SHIFT+ Click to drag the hole ship and the CTRL+ Z. -Parts manager: I don't like the new part manager. It's a god idea but in action it isn't working because it's too big and hard to close, when you have 30+ parts the game freeze for a sec to open it and hard to see through. Casual list: -Maneuver, remaining DeltaV and burn time: In the maneuver window I would like to have a "remaining DeltaV" row. Because I don't know from a white line that how many much I have to burn. This can be under the "Required DeltaV" line. The other one is the burn time because now this appears when I start the burn and this is a bit late when I try to do very small maneuvers and I reduce the trust of the engine. This can be under or above the "Start burn" line. -Transfer window: I think that some transfer window features can be implemented to the game. Particularly the time indicator. This would show the time when will be a transfer window to another planet . You could open this window and with one click you could add the time to your alarm clock. I think that this feature is enough, I don't think that we would need so many numbers, stats etc. -Trip planner start changing: In the VAB we have a trip planner thing and this is great but I can't change the "From" body to another planet or moon. This would be important when the performance get better. -Fairing building: I encountered with a bug a lot this bug is when I take off the fairing and put it back it disappear. It wouldn't be a problem if I could build a fairing with 5 clicks but with this new system the fairing building is slow, hard and complicated. I think if the old building method would be enabled with holding e.g. SHIF and if I want something more precise I would use the "stock" new method. -Gyroscope strength: I don't know what you've (developers) done with gyroscope strengths but I feel that they are useless when I want to steer a bit bigger rocket and this is good in some way but I think it would be great if this would be a setting and I could adjust the strength of the gyroscopes. And it could change with the stock settings (easy, normal, hard). -Docking: I think the lowne lazy method of docking could work but an interface like the docking port alignment indicator mod in KSP would be the best. I miss this from KSP because whenever KSP got an update I don't dock until the mod was updated (even if I could ). In my opinion this is a very important thing that needs to be implemented soon because it helps with docking A LOT. In the game it can be e.g. a part of the probe system from some point and obviously the Kerbals have access to it or it can be a device that looks like a camera that enables this feature. -Cheat menu: The Alt+ F12 is a really important part of KSP if I want to test something e.g. a probe system, a lander, a rover, recording a video etc. I think it needs to be implemented. -Alarm Clock: This is originally a mod for KSP but later it was implemented into the base game and I think that because of the multiplayer and the fact that now the time works in the VAB I think this is an important feature to don't miss anything. Including the transfer windows. -Maneuver tool: -More maneuver: I don't that this is a bug or not but if I make a maneuver I can't make another one on the modificated path. I think it would be good to have more. -KER: landing place indicator: This is a feature of Kerbal Engineer Redux and I think it will be helpful when you want to land on a landing pad of a colony. Before colonies it can be helpful but not often. -Big xenon engine: I think that if the nuclear engines got a bigger form I think that the xenon engines deserve that too. -More rover parts: This might already be part of the development but I would like to see some new and old rover cockpits. -First person: I would like to see the old cockpits with the new interior and the new cockpits interior -Noodle rockets: I don't think this was necessary. The solution could be to apply automatically Auto struts.
  10. Hi KSP2 Teams ! Congratulations for the Early Release of Kerbal Space Program 2 ! We are Kerbal Space Challenge, our association represents most of the French Players, and we organized a big survey in August 2019, after the official announcement and the truly amazing Trailer, a piece of art. Our survey took places in 2 phasis, one being the collect of all the features that the community had in mind (3), and the other one to rephrase and regroup all theses features in a new form (4) : everyone was then able to rank the top10 of the most awaited features and we had a whopping 121 participants and more than 1000 features ranked, among about 50 possibilities ! We are glad to share this with you with a proper translation of the original article that was published on our website and in which you will find the results (1), as well as the original data in an excel file (2). We hope that you will find some trends to make the game grow in the best direction possible, and we are already planning on a new survey to see how that evolves now that the game is in our hands ! Don’t hesitate to jump to the synthesis table at the end of the article, but the rest might still interest you I give it right now, embedded in this post, but there is far more to explore in the results ! Do not hesitate if you have any questions, of course. We look forward to organize and collect from another survey based on the first feedback from the players on this EA !

  11. I recently hit 55 subs (I know biggest channel ever,) But I have been getting a more than usual amount recently, I wonder if it's anything to do with what I make. So I was curious, what do you wanna see in a YouTube video? Right know there is four things I think I need to work on 1. Uniqueness I feel like I want to make my channel unique, not videos you would find on Matt Lowne or Stratzenblitz. I also want to try to make each of my videos unique. Of course that's hard to do on a consistent scale so I think you would sacrifice consistently for uniqueness. I feel like it's important to be unique or else no one will wanna watch you 2. Quality This one is a little hard to do but I think my videos need better quality with them. Do you agree on this? Of course I am looking for feedback so here is a good set of videos to judge my channel and give feedback
  12. Hello there, I was wondering if it would be possible to implement cubemap support for planets into an update at some point. I really would love to see this, since the DDS format (a texture format used by most if not all unity games) has a max resolution of just 16k. This works fine if your planets are kerbin sized, but when you have bigger planets it can look somewhat stretched. With cubemaps in theory you could have textures up to 64k in resolution in addition to having no stretching at the poles. this would allow for much greater quality and clarity in the textures of larger planets. Thanks so much for your time. Here's an example of what I mean. For anyone who may not know, cubemaps allow for this kind of clarity. but currently this is done by a mod called RVE64K for RSS using a workaround, so it doesn't load properly when not in orbit or in the map view.
  13. So, KSP 2 just got announced and we are all really excited. I never expected this but I'm so happy they've done it anyway. Throughout the years feedback has been an important part of KSP's development, so let's start it off early. Now that the game is still in early development, I think it's the best time to already start giving feedback. I know two trailers aren't much, but the sooner we give feedback, the earlier the developers can choose to integrate it. I'll be the first: I hope the parts we've seen so far are place-holders for the final ones. Mostly because a lot of the parts shown which have been ported over from KSP seem to be the old models, which in my opinion looked a lot worse. I hope they will either port over the revamped parts or make entirely new ones that look even better and more realistic while still keeping a slightly goofy style.
  14. Pretty much this: https://bugs.kerbalspaceprogram.com/issues/24221 I'm sure that I'm not the only one experiencing this, you can pretty much see this on every stream on twitch from time to time. I'm not the expert in Unity, but is there really no way this can be done? I highly doubt that.
  15. Hello. I have just checked the KSPedia from the website and was wondering if changes are planned, as it feels like a very cheap placeholder at the moment. Based on the post by UomoCapra UomoCapra says "Now you won’t need to mess with the flow of your ongoing mission and you’ll be able to use your mobile phone or any other display to consult it via our website!", leading me to believe that one of the reasons KSPedia has been removed from the game was that it felt a bit inconvenient to be accessed while playing. Well, that's false. Having to open an app through the game was never a problem. And, just like when openning KSPedia through the game, if you do have to access KSPedia through your mobile phone you will also have to pause the game; the only difference is that you'll have to take more steps if going for second method. Ideally, having it both in the game and as a .pdf in the website would be better, although the first method feels more interactive and easier to access! Is the KSPedia app ever coming back to the game, or is this a permanent change? I wish this is only temporary and I do believe other players feel the same. At the moment the .pdf file is simply a very cheap compilation of screenshots from the KSPedia menus - showing even the Xbox controller button icons on the bottom. It would be interesting if it became interactive instead of a .pdf, plus with some section makers so you wouldn't have to scroll through the many pages trying to find what you're looking for. Was there any other reason for the app to be removed? UomoCapra says that it will be easier for the devs to update the KSPedia through the website (even though it's just a .pdf file). But this doesn't seem like a reason, especially when the PC version still has the app without any issue. It would be interesting to hear/read why it's been removed, listen to the community feedback before permanently removing features and saying wether it might come back or not. Communication with the community is always welcomed! Thanks.
  16. Hello respectful community and devs. I bought the game recently and I am enjoying it. But there are rough edges around and I want to point them out. I did play through all tutorial scenarios to make sure I am just doing dumb stuff all around so I had some initial knowledge when I tried to perform different stuff. I am not off Kerbin just yet but I have quite a few successful orbital mission already. 1. Contracts. Really many contracts have unclear objectives. For example contract for testing parts like couplers or chutes do not tell you details like the part HAS to be activated using STAGING when all requirements are met. I spent quite a lot of time to understand that. Same goes for parts like engines that have a rightclick option for running the test. I had some problems understanding how do observation missions work as well as temperature/pressure tests and it was always an issue to spot required sensor in flight to rightclick it. Jokes in mission descriptions are fine but there should definitely be exact clear explanation for every objective. Missions with taking data on surface are really confusing until you have any means of travelling on ground like rovers or something. Landing a plane on this stage is even worse of a problem. 2. Planes Planes are really confusing in every possible aspect. There are almost no means of navigation. And the most annoying thing there is no autopilot. While planes are obvious tools for taking test data with "below" alt, getting to the spot is really confusing with no means for warping. KSP runway location is also a problem to locate both in map mode and in navigation. I had too big of an issue landing plane cause I could not visually locate the runway as well. So for now I just ignore planes while they can be really useful. 3. Map First and the most annoying thing is that KSP center is not visible on map. In both in-flight and from space center. I am sure showing KSP base on map with direction grid (like navball) would be great. Second problem is night/dark side. I find is rediculous that space program with that high tech all around can't see the planetary map from map view. And in-flight especially on a plane I just can't see anything like a blind kitten. Really not good at all. 4. Stability Launch Enhancer I am sure this one is meant to be used to stabilize rocket before launch cause sometimes rockets just fall due to wind or other stuff. But in my experience this thing only reduces launch stability as when it is released rocket experiences a major shake like one when physics ititialize before launch. For now thats all. This is not some kind of a rage post or something. I just tried pointing out weak spots from a newbie standpoints as most veterans are too used to all of this stuff to actually notice it.
  17. just curious what everyone think of the market and platform since console joined the network (let's say ps2 or xbox1) market and update stuff + early access + etc. - do they offer enough typing help actually to share concept and idea - are they dumbing down the user by the lack of keyboard or or proper typing helper wich make sharing some sepcific kind of info a bit tedious i personnally tend to think console are not really in osmosis with the network aspect regarding that ... kinda a bit too much dumbly merchantile & play don't think on a few layers ... wich is bit counter productive regarding the current nowdays gaming market and interenet overall i ll be curious to read other feeling about that, not especially ksp related but more in general overall gaming market related UTF-8#q=ergonomics+layers+%26+various+kind+of+data+sharing https://books.google.fr/books?id=v8LrAAAAMAAJ&pg=PA652&lpg=PA652 . . .
  18. I haven't made an SSTO in absolutely ages. In fact I haven't made one since before the significant aero changes occurred as I simply lost the ability to do it. That really had to change so I put my mind to it and over the last 3 days have designed and flown this mission in my spare time. First some stats: Name: Mullet Dyne Cross Wing (Variant 5) Parts: 86 (including payload) Mass: 43.155t Cost: 81,464 (including payload) Power: 3 x CR-7, 2 LV-N Mission Report - Click here Craft File - Click here So basically what I'm looking for is a bit of feedback if anyone wants to chip in. Since this is my first foray into SSTO's since before the major aero changes (although the design went through 5 iterations before I was happy with it) I've no real idea (beyond being capable of Mun/Minus return) whether I've got the balance, look, design, efficiency right etc. Feel free to download it and try it out, or just provide feedback based on what you see Thanks everyone! SM
  19. Hey, I just finished doing some work on a propeller model for a mod that I was thinking of creating. Im just wondering if you guys have any feedback on the model, or more specifically the texturing. Thanks for any help, I sincerely appreciate it. You can view the model in 3D right here: https://skfb.ly/NtD7
