What is this?

A gameplay add-on for Kerbal Space Program. The purpose is to transform the CommNet network of the single type into multiple constellations of different types.

Major features:

  • Make a group of satellites (a constellation) working together to archive a single purpose eg Global GPS, Ground-to-Air Communication

  • Assign a vessel to one or more constellations

  • Edit a ground station

  • Colored connections and icons in Map View

  • Built directly on KSP's CommNet infrastructure

  • Many frequencies (up to 32,767!) to choose for a vessel or constellation

  • Color Picker for "infinite" color choices

  • User-friendly interfaces, included the sort and filter capabilities for the vessel list

Bonus: Designed by a RemoteTech developer as a test bed on multiple features of RemoteTech 2.x re-development

Screenshots below:

Why?

Three reasons:

  • In our real-life universe, we have satellite constellations of GPS, GLONASS and Galileo talking to their own members. So why can't CommNet have such feature?

  • Every vessel in the whole network is talking to everyone within its root range model.

  • This mod is a testbed for some features of the RemoteTech redevelopment project.

Version 1.1 for Kerbal Space Program 1.3.0

Released on 2017-08-12

What's new? - Switched from the previous idea of one frequency per vessel to the concept of a multi-frequency vessel with its antennas * Each antenna has one frequency and custom name * Vessel's frequency list is built from its antennas * Vessel displays its strongest frequency in the user interface for easy glance * Can deselect/select some antennas for the frequency list instead of the default list * Re-implement the previous idea of a single frequency per vessel with the membership-talk option * Preserve stock Comm power of antennas and power combination * Decide how vessel's frequency list should be updated (Auto-Build or Lock List) whenever there is the change in an antenna (eg frequency change) * Can configure antennas in SPH and VAB but the frequency list is not available due to CommNet not available in the editors - Tab support added to the control panel - New ability to edit ground stations (name, frequency list, color) - Input locks to stop unintended keypress-caused actions when typing in mod interfaces - Moved away from the LINQ library (memory intensive) - Great amount of UI interface changes
