/kspg/ 2016 edition
now with more love
>Can the game be considered a full release?
No, for all intents and purposes, KSP should be considered still in early access state. The game is nowhere near being able to stand on its own legs both from a gameplay perspective (career mode is definitely not ready and balanced) and a stability perspective. There are still major bugs and memory leaks that shouldn't exist on a finished game.
>Are there big issues with the game?
Bugs and instability are still real and frequent problems, as with every product still in beta. Ask in thread for details.
>What are the devs doing?
Modified versions of popular mods are being included in the stock game while the game engine is being upgraded to its latest version. The next major update (1.1) is supposedly going to bring a complete overhaul of the GUI, be 64bit friendly, have a refined physics/heating/aero model and generally perform better. An external team with heavily questionable experience (Flying Tiger Entertainment) is being tasked with porting the game to PS4, XboxOne and Wii U. They seem to be rushing for an imminent deadline and they are also working on a version of the game that will be obsolete in a few weeks/months.
>Should I buy the game?
KSP is very enjoyable at first, then it usually needs to be modded to retain some sort of longevity, but doing so may dramatically increase the instability of the game. You will be very familiar with the word "Oops!". The Developers, Squad, have shown many times that they can't handle the project and are trying to squeeze all the money they can with the least amount of effort and with controversial PR tactics. The general consensus at /kspg/ is that you should torrent the game, not because the game itself is unplayable, but because most of us agree that Squad does not deserve your money.
>What can I do to turn the tables ?

Reminder to not talk about attention whores, do not reply to their posts, even if you want to insult them, do not reply to people talking about them, do not ask who they are, filter their tripcodes, do not acknowledge their presence in any way, and assume every mention of them is their own attempt at gathering attention.
common topics used by attention whores:
- general consensus
- shills of all kinds (euroshills, purchaseshills, squadshills etc)
- burning squadcast
- obsession with maxmaps
- an incredible tendency to shift attention away from critiques
- extremely anal about single words in the OP
- anything about New York
I fucked up my fonts somehow, anyone know how to fix it or what could cause it?
Thanks angry nothing-adder what do you want to discuss today?
Did everyone see this? It's like Exploding buildings but
useful and neat and desired by the userbase
I for one would like more pictures because somehow it seems like the font just returned to its natural form and its funny
Moar pls, is it limited to in game tweakables? What about planetary info, tracking station, contracts, part tooltips, main menu, game select, etc?
oh btw REMINDER CAREER/SANDBOX IS A FALSE PARADIGM
Its on all parts right-click info-panels and in this info window. Everything else that has a different font seems fine.
I'm not quite done teaching you the full meaning of that concept anon. Strap yourself in.
Super duper cute!!
I'm working on it. I almost have it all figured out.
Did you see my turkeypost? He's gonna get a desired format to us.
Frankly now that I've found the thread of my argument I'm thinking about making my own doc

ive tried it and it does work, but some fumes are still there. i would say its about a 75% decrease in severity
We definitely need the previous thread in any new OP.
Also what's the deal with archives ? Why the previous thread is still available on 4chan ? How long does it take to vanish completely ?
Reminder the janitor is on Squad payroll and is trying to personally and permanently beat general sponsored shitposting. Also he hates spiders. Post arachnids.
>We have a few generals that hate their developers. The problem with this one is that people got so focused on getting mad at max and squad that it became self destructive. People who liked it left and only the shitposters remained. For a time it merged with other generals but when it separated again it seems we inherited the shitposters.
>Now that people are picking up the game and making their own opinions, things are in a favorable position to change and maybe we can end the shitposters grip on this general and the people who actually want to talk about the game will have a place to do it without the amount of shitposters that settled here

Honestly, I know Max is a twat and Squad don't know what they're doing, but I've been playing 0.9 now with about 32 mods and it's a beautiful game. Granted they could have done a lot better, but it's still fun.
0.9 and 0.90 are two completely different updates
Version numbers are not decimals, they do not work like decimals, they aren't a fraction representing how much of the game is done, even if that's what Max seemed to think

Anon, has it ever occurred to you these might be different people, this might be a losing battle, that you have no soul, personality or reason to post here and perhaps you are beginning to develop schizophrenia?
It was proven there's another New York anon here, remember?
I hope you enjoyed the extra 10 meters the last thirty intakes got you.
Because either way, your time here is coming to an end. If you like KSP so much, why don't you go post on the subreddit or the forums?
What if I told you
that I'm shitposting

I'm not janny, and the fact that you instantly turned to thinking I'm him and how adamantly you falsely believe that there is only one samefag against you shows how alarmingly mentally unstable you are. Is this how you behave in real life too? Is that why you have no friends? Is that why you refuse to leave this place since even on the internet you're unable to make friends or even be remotely likable? Why haven't you gotten mental help yet?
You're forgetting about the one time he "spread Max's lies" by randomly posting that album of that anon purporting to be maxmaps and in the process made the entirety of /kspg/ look even more like autistic idiots with no capability of having sane discussions.

And yes, I'm mad at that faggot because he keeps staying and ruining the entire general and its reputation.
If I point out that squadcast did indeed burn deep and long and hard, will that be relevant to kerbal enough?
You are supposed to grate the cheese with the eggs (and cream if you want) and whisk the shit out of the sauce BEFORE pouring it on the pasta.

>sliders for planet size and distances
this strikes me as exceedingly unusable without any type of reference scale. Maybe if "Earth" was on the right and "Kerbin" was on the left, but even then, a stretch.
Friendly reminder that there are (or were) literally 3 (three) something-adders in this thread and neither Max nor the autist are one of them.
Save your attention for the people that deserve it or even your pet.
The latest stock version works fine if you only stick to NewGRFs.
For patches you might want to check their forum threads because they usually take longer to update than GRFs
If you are already familiar with the stock game and want something a bit more difficult, try this pack
The last patch version (2.3.209) is probably still in beta and has some troubles with certain NewGRFs, use the other one (2.2.182) which is what I'm currently using and it works perfectly.
Anyway, if you are a first timer, stick to the vanilla game for at least the first run so you get to know the basics.
The only GRFs that you should absolutely download from the ingame browser is FIRS, which changes how industries work.
Haven't played in some months, was about to ask if the game is playable now, but:
> The next major update (1.1) is supposedly going to bring a complete overhaul of the GUI, be 64bit friendly, have a refined physics/heating/aero model and generally perform better
> Modified versions of popular mods are being included in the stock game while the game engine is being upgraded to its latest version
whats your say?
It's a good thing they are including their own version of popular mods.
The problem is "their own", and you probably already know the suberb ability of squad to screw up even the most basic things.
I don't remember the full list of new features they are going to put 1.1, but I remember one of them is a dumbed down version of Remote Tech with some pretty stupid options (like moons not blocking signals if one of them block your line of sight to kerbin).
As always, promising stuff that will inevitably turn out to be shit and will need at least one or two panic hotfixes because they have no idea how to test their own stuff
Honestly, the game got a lot better since .23, but the fact that it took 5 hotfixes to partially fix all the shit that was wrong with 1.0 says a lot on their ability to test and ship a good product.
Anyway, the game is awesome as always if you use mods, the stock game (especially career mode) is a total let down, even if it is way more enjoyable than when it was in .23
stuff with a red line are vehiclepacks that work very well together, especially if you are like me and like to start your games in the late 19th/early 20th century, but they have vehicles for up to the near future.
stuff in yellow are additional stuff specific for early starts, but not necessary if you are more of a modern-times player
the rest is stuff you already have or is just cosmetic
I suggest to use few vehicle packs at a time (usually one train pack, one truck pack and one ship/plane pack), because they are often not balanced with each other, so you might end up with similar vehicles that have wildly different prices if you start mixing packs.
also, and this is extremely important, go in the settings and disable inflation unless you are not playing a 100% stock game
Reminder that we will start deleting stuff in the doc, as per rules, starting next Monday.
If your stuff has been tagged for deletion, this weekend will be your last chance to fix it.
All the deleted sections will be copied in a pastebin and linked in the doc anyway, so you can still get them back in case you want to work on them again.
Also, for anyone interested, the poll to decide the deletion frequency will be open until Monday.

Fuck off. Things like that should never, ever be acceptable in a "complete" commercial title. It's that attitude that results in Fallout 4 being a best-seller despite being a buggy mess of unfinished features and poorly implemented mods.

Nothing against you snek, but I've never understood people that harbor reptiles as pets. I've known lots of people that did it, I just never saw the allure to it.
Had a parakeet once as a child, and I used to put him on my shoulder and let him pick my teeth after dinner. That was kinda cool I guess, but never wanted to cage up a bird since. Just don't see the point, ya know?
A dog, sure. A cat (shut it catfucker), why not... but iguanas or snakes? No fucking way, not even once...
Different strokes I guess
>not knowing this was taken from the reddit population with the only bias being those more likely to browse /new since it was deleted by mods within minutes of posting.

Hey there, it looks like we have a negative nothing adder!
Let's play with it.
1) hating shitposting
2) adding nothing, negatively.
If you want to post about KSP so much, why don't you go to the forums?
Maybe you can make some friends there you don't need to constantly follow because they're always trying to ditch you.
she is a qt
as long as it is here, I am here, waiting for it to fall into my web.
>missing the point
I'm not suprised, at all really. But what is it that makes one want to keep a cold-blooded hunter-killer in captivity? Why would someone think of that as a good pet?
No affection, no emotion. Is it just a reflection of the owner? Why would you take away the only thing it knows and feed it a dead, lukewarm rat? Isn't that kind of fucked up?
I just don't get it, shit seems fucked up to me. You complain about dirty, stinky mammals as pets, yet you post webms of your snake sitting and pissing in a bathtub. It undoubtedly shits and pisses in its glass holding cell, so surely you must clean that? Right? Isn't that disgusting?
You argue that snakes are cute. Well then I posit that my dog is also cute. And he shits and pisses outside. And if I make a bit of extra food, I can give him table scraps. I dont have to go buy dead fucking rats to feed him. And he let's me know if someone is outside the house.
Seems to me snakes a shit.
Get fuct snek
Cats have their own role, from pest protection to lovable balls of fur that purr all the time, and clean themselves... affectionate and quirky, cats can also be house trained to not use a litterbox. >>127937409
Not sure what this means, but I knew "aquarium" isn't the right term... although it's what they keep snakes in, albeit without water. None the less, he still has to clean out its shit and piss... and no I'm not euro.
I'm not even snek
The term you're looking for is "tank" you swarthy fuck
>it doesnt smell
yeah, sure pall. i've heard the "my shit dont stink" line before, you're not impressing anyone here.
>removed another hazard from her life
what, you mean, being a fucking snake? do you think the snake knows this? do you feel like you're doing some kind of "solid" for the snakes in the world? you're feeding your snake dead fucking rats, for fucks sake. if anything, you're trying to de-program something thats taken who knows how fucking long to figure out. what would a rat do, scratch the snake a bit? oh gosh, someone call peta.
so you like to go to the reptile shop, good on ya. why? cute chicks? nah, you said you're gay. cute dudes?
>You have to feed your dog table scraps because dogs are whiny pieces of shit that will beg for food while you try to eat.
Obviously, reading comprehension isnt one of your strong suits. i stated in >>127937174 that if i have a "bit of extra food" i could give it to him. If your so much of a bitch that you cant control your dog during dinner-time, and keep him from begging, then i guess thats why you have a snake.
>I hope you're cleaning your yard because stepping in dog shit is much grosser than blah blah blah comfortable.
i'm not an idiot, and i can train my dog to shit in a back corner of the yard that i dont walk/mow/peruse, or anyone else for that matter.
i know you'll rebut this with some prissy shit, but everyone knows it to be true. so go ahead, post another webm, bitch about how you have no job, but just admit: snakes are shit pets, and its the only thing that gave you anything on /kspg/.
We're all him now, friend. :^) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrPjip1R5lo
Whoa dude, calm down.
Snekfag doesn't deserve all that rage.
Still, I can't see the beauty of keeping a snake in a tank or, God forbid, free to roam the house, it's just lowly reptile. One that's damn cool to look at while it murder things that's for sure, but still a lowly, not so bright reptile
Cats on the other hand... I fucking love them and actually have one snoozing somewhere right now
I thought it might be from a heat lamp, but after actually going to the store where we got her they had actual good enclosures for the animals and I doubt the lamps they used could've gotten hot enough to do that damage
>probably from a rat ripping her up
Strangely I remember you saying differently. Besides, how would a rat, one capable of being eaten by this snake, be in a position to fuck up said snake, without getting wrecked by said snake?
Shit don't add up, man.
I want nuclear warheads so I can deflect asteroids.
WHY HAVEN"T YOU DONE THIS YET, SQUAD!
It's one of the ways proposed to actually do it, and it's probably the way they'd go if they had only months of warning. It'll work too if you impact the right area.
You impact one side and fragment it so its course is altered, so most of it misses.
It's the easy way, rather than strapping a rocket to the asteroid.
It's more plausible than said rocket strapping too.
The current idea is to have a two-part weapon; a KE impactor than creates a crater, then the follow on warhead that enters and detonates.
You don't need blast to fragment a rock in space
2 megatons will handily melt say a 100 meter diameter nickel asteroid in vacuum; far less to fragment is and add lateral velocity to the pieces
X-rays and neutrons will melt and vaporize the rock, ice and metals (which reduces the size of the asteroid and also adds lateral velocity change). With how much based on yield of the weapon.
It's far more plausible than landing on one with an engine.
I stopped playing around the time that buildings got added, and i'm stepping back into the game for the first time since then.
What are the best, least complicated mods that replace the planets with the real ones in our solar system? I tried RSS with the descaled config, but it would just glitch out like fucking crazy. Is there a mod that could just simply replace the textures and names of the stock planets with our real world ones?
Thanks babe <3
I am also the anon working on Earth textures for Kerbin, but due to time constraints I have not been able to work on it. If Scatterer-kun would want to have it just tell me.
It's cold isn't it? That's what you get for wanting a bath in such weather. Stupid bird

I don't know about the particular buttons you are talking about, but some buttons are disabled because the guy who made the mod plans to use them for future expansions.
Or maybe they are already assigned to something and you are simply not using the right screen page for them to actually function.
Anyway, I guess your only option is to thinker with the code of they are really disabled
>but first I want to see what mean stuff you say to me for no reason.

I was expecting something a bit more "extreme" to be honest but I guess that's fine too.
Got any screenshots or videos of their reactions?

Things that never happened: the post.
Hi Max. Announce your new job or the burnings continue.
It went pretty well. We ruined their optimism by pointing out there's no plan for FT or the consoles after 1.0, suggested updates might be hard because of complete different ui's for action groups and tweakables, and then there was the proton torpedo right down the thermal exhaust port:
>With the teased "definitive" version in November 2016 coming out on the Wii, how does squad plan to continuously update three console versions, three PC versions, Multiplayer, forums, store, all online peripherals etc. with a business model that will inevitably have diminishing sales over time
Turkey read all the questions out loud, everynoe got extremely uncomfortable and he said that one day they would have to shut it down. You could hear Kasper shitting himself through the mic.
He also asked if people were interested in KSP2, a complete rework of the game from the ground up.
Squadcast burned. Tune in next week!
A bunch of other shit happened, but first I want to see what mean stuff you say to me for no reason.
Remember to always post controversial material or discussion while tethered and toggling airplane mode between posts.
This dumps your IP which is used to recognize your computer by 4chan, meaning 4chan thinks you are a new user.
If the janny decides he REALLY doesn't want you to post here anymore, he might cookie your phone/computer, wipe cookies and/or use incognito windows to get around this secondary ban tactic.
Once janny gets frustrated enough, he will delete the thread. Then he will delete hundreds of other threads.
Then we will invite every shitposter on 4chan to converge on this spot and janny will temporarily lose his volunteer authority (btw that you Ar_Taq?), just like in August.

So basically no one gives enough of a shit to try the new tutorials.

We have a few generals that hate their developers. The problem with this one is that people got so focused on getting mad at max and squad that it became self destructive. People who liked it left and only the shitposters remained. For a time it merged with other generals but when it separated again it seems we inherited the shitposters.
Things are in a favorable position to change and maybe we can end the shitposters grip on this general and the people who actually want to talk about the game will have a place to do it without the amount of shitposters that settled here
