Information Changelog Stats

Basic DeltaV replaces and improves upon the stock dV system.

All stock deltaV calculations are replaced using a modified version of the Kerbal Engineer Redux vessel simulator.

The allows for several improvements and additions to the stock system:

  • Mach slider used to allow for accurate calculation of jet engine data at flight speeds
  • Improved reference body list in the dV toolbar app
  • Persistent atmospheric reference settings in the VAB and SPH
  • RCS dV values
  • Engine torque values
  • On screen TWR gauge to show current max TWR in a log scale slider gauge
  • dV values for each stage shown as a slider
  • Improvement performance for dV calculations
  • Significantly reduced garbage memory allocations

This mod uses the vessel simulator code from Kerbal Engineer Redux. You can expect the information to be the same as that provided by KER and for the same limitations to apply. Please do not post bug reports for KER when using Basic DeltaV unless they can be independently replicated in KER.

Version 5.2 for Kerbal Space Program 1.6.1

Released on 2019-02-13

  • Fixed an issue causing the stage group dV indicator bar to become very large


Version 5.1 for Kerbal Space Program 1.6.1

Released on 2019-01-19

  • Add engine torque readout option
  • Fix deltaV slider values to account for locked resource tanks
  • Fix several bugs related to stage group info panels and remove unneeded log entries


Version 5.0 for Kerbal Space Program 1.6.1

Released on 2019-01-14

  • Complete overhaul for KSP 1.6

  • Remove almost all UI components from old versions

    • Stock UI used for all dV and related info
    • On screen TWR gauge remains as an optional component
  • Extensive modifications of the stock dV system

    • All stock calculations disabled
    • dV and related calculations use modified version of the Kerbal Engineer Redux vessel simulator
    • RCS dV calculations are available for display in the stock info panels
  • Modifications of the stock dV toolbar app

    • Addition of Mach slider
      • Used to accurately calculate jet engine values at realistic flight speeds
    • Reference body list reordered to be more sensible
      • All planets are ordered based on distance from the sun
      • Moons are grouped together with their parent planet
      • The sun is placed last in the list
    • VAB and SPH will separately remember their atmospheric settings
    • New RCS dV toggle available
    • TWR gauge and dV slider toggles available in flight
  • Additions to the stock UI

    • TWR gauge from old versions of Basic dV is still available - Used to display current max TWR on a log scale slider - Hover pointer over the slider for a tooltip with the exact TWR value
    • Stock dV indicator boxes modified to work as sliders - Displays current dV out of the theoretical max dV for each stage
  • Performance improvements

    • Stock dV calculations are slower and generate more garbage (temporary memory) allocations
    • Reduces the update interval for the stage panel info readouts
      • Readout updates 3 times per second rather than every frame
      • Results in significant reduction in garbage allocations


Version 4.0 for Kerbal Space Program 1.5.1

Released on 2018-11-07

  • Updated for KSP 1.5

  • New More Basic Mode

    • Alternate mode for simpler display of dV and TWR
    • New TWR gauge in the lower-left corner
    • New dV sliders next to the stage panels on the left
    • Several options for how to display the new information
  • Option to disable stock dV calculator

    • Basic DeltaV will fill in all stock dV numbers from its own calculations
  • Toggle atmospheric mode in the editor with Alt + Right click on the toolbar button

  • Toggle to account for thrust vectors in calculations

  • Added new Vessel simulator calculation for theoretical max dV for a stage based on full resource containers and all engines at max thrust

  • Reduced garbage allocation for display panels

  • Fixed bugs in KER simulator that were generating excess garbage and slowed performance
  • Simulator now runs based on events in the editor, rather than on a timer, this reduces the performance overhead of the mod


Version 3.2 for Kerbal Space Program 1.4.5

Released on 2018-09-11

  • Show actual thrust and TWR for the active stage in flight

Released on 2018-07-27

  • Update for KSP 1.4.5

  • Some minor performance improvements

  • Persistent setting for activation of panels is stored separately for the VAB/SPH and flight


Version 3.0 for Kerbal Space Program 1.4.4

Released on 2018-04-30

  • Updated for KSP 1.4
  • Properly handle Engine Plates for dV and other engine calculations
