Help Getting Started - Overwhelmed


Recommended Posts

Seeking a little Hand Holding to Break into KSP2 Modding ( Absolute Beginner)
 


Hello fellow KSP2 modding enthusiasts,

I want to dive into the world of KSP2 modding but am an utter neophyte... and I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. 

I’ve started following the steps on the Wiki I was directed to

Step #1 (Install VS & Unity) - Success
Step #2 (Install Git) - Choice Paralysis

Choosing SSH Executable?
Choosing HTTP Backend?
Configure the Line Ending Conversions?
Configure the Terminal Emulator to use with Git Bash?
Choose the Default Behavior of "Git Pull"?
Choose Credential Manager?

The Above are things i don't fully understand and would like assistance in choosing the correct options. 


Challenges:

  1. Git Installation Confusion:

    • I’m new to Git, and the various options during installation are confusing. Which extensions should I append to my projects? How do I handle SSH? These decisions feel important, and I’ve tried searching online, but I lack the foundational knowledge to make informed choices.
  2. Beyond Comfort Zone and Asking for Help:

    • I’ve seen others progress further before seeking assistance, and it’s making me hesitant to ask for help. I know I’m not stupid, but stepping out of my comfort zone feels daunting.


I appreciate any and all assistance that the community is willing to offer. I am hoping a little bit of hand holding in others free time may be able to help me successfully get my feet wet.
Based upon other new things that I have picked up in the past, I am hoping once I overcome some of the technical hurdles, I will be able to learn as I go.  

The experience I have lies in editing single text files of Json and Bit Map edits. A little bit of Sprite Creation. I do not have any experience on this level but am excited to one day contribute to the modding scene.

Not quite sure where these choices are coming from, but you can simplify it a lot if you are running Windows 11 by using winget or on earlier windows I recommend you install Chocolatey Software | Chocolatey - The package manager for Windows

With WinGet open a powershell or cmd window and at the prompt enter: 

winget install Git.Git

with chocolatey, you need to open an administrator version of the same (hit the Win key + X and select the Admin option or press A) and type

choco install git

open a new terminal window and type 'git', and you should be set.

Recommend you also do this in a regular cmd/terminal window:

git config --global user.name "YourName Here"
git config --global user.email "[email protected]"

If you end up being known as "YourName Here" then you probably shouldn't be trying to mod KSP2 :)

just go with the default options. none of that really matters. 

the best place to get help will be on the ksp2 modding discord
