And he's not even talking about the obvious mustache
Thanks a lot for the opportunity :)
@AndrewGarrison you should include here an explanation to why mods can't be used in Android and iOS
@StigRuz I have notifications for this post, but I don't have time to go through all the things posted on the webpage sadly, I used to do that but it was unhealthy. Now I work full time at Jundroo and at the same time study a degree in telecom engineering, I'm the department manager for flight software on a CubeSat team and the secretary of the students union in my university. I live alone so I have to buy and cook my food and keep the house clean, and I have a gf, family, and friends and I want to spend time with them. Sorry for not reading your forum post.
Vizzy can be a great introduction for programming. They can play with the basic blocks and see the direct effect of the code in the crafts in a matter of seconds.
@simpleaerospace we aren't removing the tinker panel! We love the sandbox nature of the game and we are even adding new features to it, but we are disabling it for career mode, so it shouldn't be a necessary tool, just an option for people to break the game at their will to have some fun.
@Reeseek_Puffs luckily we have a lot of great people in our community :)
KraZIvan: unforeseen delays in future game updates
Nathan literally minutes later: Update
@FelixFan1 I've removed one of your comments, even if joking, self harm is not accepted here. Threating others with harming yourself is unacceptable.
@HyperPatch ads kinda suck, and google struggles to meet our demands and shows nsfw ads on the page
First of all, whete I'm from carrying a gun is not a right, it gets you into prison, no idea what the 2nd amendment has to do with this.
2nd, this is a discussion i'd like to see happening, but not coming from you. You keep acting like you are a victim and part of the solution, when you have been one of the main problems in this situation. Your behaviour and some of your comments are unacceptable.
Please stop this unnecessary drama.
@AndrewGarrison finally got some time to test this version.
Should I make independent posts now for the things on the list of suggestions that didn't get into this version?
Pressing W with A or D should make the astronaut body turn to match the movement direction and keep only the head pointing at the camera direction, it would be cool to have run/walk modes and crouch/lay down.
ctrl for crouch, shift for run and ijkluo for turning instead of shift+wasdqe may feel more intuitive since it's how a lot of games are configured by default. For up/down spacebar/ctrl may work too.
When going backward it should run slower than going forward.
Underwater time warp causes the camera distortion to deform the image too much.
When underwater AGL should display the distance to the ocean floor.
When underwater the opacity should increase with distance, which would help to prevent some of the bugs I've seen reported and improve the looks.
Underwater color filter doesn't depend on the color of the water (doesn't affect the current version of the game but is problematic for custom solar systems and will be problematic for planet builder)
@Atomicdragon SR2 is not the same engine with some bonus things, the game is quite different.
They had to change the code because Google requires them to change the code, so blame Google and not Jundroo if you want your mods back. The issue is perfectly explained in the link SupremeDorian sent before.
The camera is indeed quite bad for many things and there're many problems in the game but instead of pointing at them you say the menus are overcomplicated :/
I mean, go to parts, select one part and place it. Go to shape tool and adjust the shape, go to mirror and mirror it. I don't see the complexity. And if you're talking about all the options in the engines, you have many preconfigured engines to choose.
Btw, if you check all the updates there're far more bug fixes than additions. If you prefer simple planes, fine, the game is clearly more polished, the community bigger and you may like some of the mechanics more... But asking for a refund? I think they're working a lot on polishing SR2 and mobile version is coming soon, one of the most requested features
@Ylias it's crazy that in an update with 5 minutes worth of reading release notes the comments still ask for more features.
@EagleHasLandedYeet2 @Paris77 we don't know, we have Christmas holidays, and there's still a lot of testing to do.
@Marssmmm Because it takes more time to develop and test, the devices are generally more limited in terms of resources, they use a totally different architecture and, the least important but still worth considering, the game is cheaper on mobile platforms. It's a lot easier to develop for pc only, see if things work, iterate a couple of times to fix bugs (usually all bugs on pc show on mobile but not all bugs on mobile show on PC) and then port it and focus on mobile.
That said, this time we've been focusing a lot on mobile and there've been lots of performance improvements on the planets that allow us to take things a step further without increasing loading times or the use of memory much. In fact, in 0.9.6 and using the old system you should get a substantial boost in performance when generating quads (terrain)
You can make parts float now using the translation tool. I would love to have a glass part or an alpha slider in the paint brush but Nathan told us in the past that there're some issues with the render priority that would make the ocean invisible through transparent parts, it's a shame.
Btw, for suggestions you should go to the feedback section, the suggestions here in the forum are just for discussion. If you search in the feedback section you should find a couple posts asking for glass/transparent parts.
In the interviews you should separate questions and answer
This could lead to some problems. They could at least let you delete a craft and upload another without increasing the timer counter (if you upload 3 or so you can't upload more in 24 hours)
You should write this in Stuff/Suggestions, this is the forum, not the official suggestions section
@FelixFan1 btw, something being already stated doesn't mean it shouldn't be brought up again, that shows up the idea is supported by more than one person.
@Nico412 you haven't reported a single bug in 2 and a half years, so judging by that the game is pretty stable.
@Roar_LX @TridentLaogou @QinSheng First of all, stop pinging the devs in the posts, you've pinged Andrew 3 times!! Do you know how annoying and ineffective that is? If someone gets pinged every day for things like this after a while it's tempting to just ignore the pings.
Second, please post this as a bug report so it's easier for us to track it and we'll look into this in the near future
@Junal the GUI and controls are designed to be used in a desktop environment, with keyboard and mouse. On top of that, planet generation is a very hard task for a mobile processor to be done in quick iterations, risking overheating the device.
@AdrianCastillo well, you could make a robot horse
@Thuglifebruhwut the issue is reading (and the total lack of education).
As Philip already stated, you won't have the game on mobile tomorrow. It may be released by the end of this week and that's not 100% sure.
Jundroo is a small team, they're working on multiple things at once and I'm sure the workflow has to follow some steps to make things efficient.
If you can't wait a couple weeks for a game feature to be released to the point of threatening the devs you should visit a psychiatrist asap.
It would be great to see some sort of modularity in the astronauts, like different types of helmets, suits and backpacks with different specifications/uses and different costs
@Emin2904 that's what the system inserted in your mind. Whoever wants to see the truth can easily tell that Earth is flat indeed.
@TronicOrbital of course you wln't have to re-buy it if we end up renaming it
@ColdAerospace I'm reading all the comments on discord, the website and reddit, so yeah, it's being seen
@XionmassResearchDevt It's funny to see you comment such a thing on an update focusing on bringing what the community wanted to the game. And btw, even if you don't share things, I'm glad to hear you still play and enjoy the game. Your opinion is as valid as everyone else opinions, this is a post to comment what is being added, if you feel like the game is lacking something you can see if it was already suggested here and if not, suggest it yourself. With enough backing and if we think it fits the game, we will sure consider adding it.
@GLaDOSpOrtal22 half a month ago
Even my laptop struggles to run planet studio, having it enabled on mobile will only cause a lot of problems.
@AndrewGarrison I know it's an old suggestion and you had problems implementing it, but for Vizzy having access to orbital parameters is a must (apoapsis, periapsis, time for both, orbital period...) and encounter parameters would be really cool (time to land, distance to land, lat/long for the landing, distance to target, time to target, info about planet approaches...)
Another very appreciated addition would be an optional code interface and not just blocks (even if it is through xml or something similar)
Ooof I need a copy of Aero Effect VR
You can make transparent paints, the problem is that the parts can't have transparency, so the paint looks opaque once you apply it
Making parts transparent can be a problem in the rendering engine (currently transparency would prevent water to be rendered behind the part and some other issues like that)
@Ehelium2 @wwwNews222com stop this please
There're multiple ways:
Copy the link to the file and paste it inside the game
In the game go to Download crafts, search the craft and click download
Download the craft file in a web browser and paste it in the crafts folder
@Bmcclory we don't even need a new part, just an spheric option on nosecones instead of just cone and curved cone, that can prevent the spike on top of the deformated nosecones
And when you have 50 mods in the Lego bucket better install the Janitor's closet
- Copy the link to the craft, go to the game and press ctrl+v
- Go to the editor or main page and click in Download Crafts, find the craft you want and click in Download. It should automatically open in the game
- Download the file and go to LocalLow/Jundroo/Simplerockets/UserData/CraftFiles. Paste the file there
The size issue, just make the crafts meant to have crew adapted to the size of the crew, same for KSP, if you want Kerbonauts the craft needs to fit them.
For the custom cabins problem. If they add characters I'm sure they'll add crafts with interiors, and many cabins have interiors now, it's just an inexistent problem that will be fixed itself. The only problem is that old crafts won't work well with them, like with the new engines.
A quick fix for the custom cabins would be adding a seat part, so them can be on the seat and not inside the only crew cabin part that we have now, and then improving how cargo bay doors work so we can make the cabins.
@tars13 wait for planet builder, career mode and mod tools lmao. Only things ksp has now are kermen, antenna and science. And a shit ton of mods. But for this price this game crushes ksp.
And wait for mobile release
@AndrewGarrison nice to see negative mass go away :)
Translation/rotation tools are totally broken, check it out or people may get upset with this beta
@AndrewGarrison model rockets, separation stages, RCS like engines (I'm planning to use the rcs thrust to control the throttle of some engines to have more powerful RCS)
And also for the looks, of course
If you link pistons they act as a rope
A crane cable
Hinges work too
*This crafts were made in older versions, I don't know if they still work well
You can use a fairing or a wing with tinkered heat resistance and paint it the same as the in-game heat shield
This has been answered dozens of times in the forum and it's answered in FAQ. 2019, there's no date yet.
@nico412 I don't recommend you to drive long land distances with a plane
@FelixFan1 I'm going to suggest you taking my advise seriously, even if you don't like seriousness. Stop being rude to others, that's all, if you don't want to, you will receive a warning. That's all, no need to go around in circles about this any more, accept the rules for what they are and move on.
