This mod provides the ability to freeze and thaw kerbals for those long space journeys.
Introduces glykerol resource used for freezing kerbals.
To freeze a kerbal you must have 5 glykerol units (configurable via part.cfg or settings menu) and 3000 electrical charge (configurable via part.cfg or settings menu) per kerbal. To thaw a kerbal you must have 3000 electrical charge (configurable via part.cfg or settings menu) per kerbal.
This is the on-going release version of the original dev version of DeepFreeze by scottpalladin. Due to other commitments Scott has indicated to me that he has little time and unlikely to continue any mod work on KSP into the future and has given me permission and well wishes to continue the work.
As per the terms of the original license full credit to forum user scottpalladin PaladinLabs for the original concept, ideas and dev mod. The license continues under the same license conditions. The release version will be known as DeepFreeze Continued...
Uses:When kerbals are frozen they do not consume life support resources. If you don't use life support mods, this mod doesn't really do much, except provide a few cool parts and fairly useless feature.
* When inside the CRY-0300 with the External Doors closed, if you zoom out strange camera effects mean the door is only partially visible.
When there is a Kerbal on the ladder in front of the CRY-0300 and the doors are open the Internal Overlays the kerbal and blocks them from view. This is actually an RPM - JSIAdvTransparentPods limitation for now.
The CRY-0300R has lost it's ability to show cool Window Freeze/Thawing animation effects.
For support please refer to the KSP Forum thread.

V0.26.0.0 Re-compile for KSP 1.7.2 and above. Added BackgroundResources processing. This is a module also distributed with my TAC LS mod. It will do EC processing for DeepFreezer parts that are on unloaded vessels (not the active vessel). You can turn it off in the Difficulty settings. It also does unloaded EC production for all vessels.

Compile for KSP 1.2.1 Fix Editor customer Filter for DeepFreeze parts. Fix problem with EC and Heat settings being disabled in new game difficulty settings. https://github.com/JPLRepo/DeepFreeze/issues/63 Fix problem with CRY-0300 Doors opening/closing with JSI Advanced Transparent Pods showing an empty Internal until fully open, unfortunately it does mean you can no longer see the doors animate open/closed correctly. This is a limitation of the JSI Advanced Transparent Pods and camera setup for KSP. Performance improvement pass on the code. Fixed Difficulty Settings. Fixed incorrect use of Blizzy ToolBar on game startup even if user has set to use Stock Icon in difficulty settings. Implemented inter-mod GameEvents - better integration possible with other mods. Fixed bug when Comatose Kerbal dies. Fixed Vessel Switching to unloaded vessel when Low EC or overheat warning occurs. Removed CRY-0300 door sound when JSI Advanced Transparent Pods mod shuts the door (not the user).

DeepFreeze Settings are now set in the Difficulty window (stock) when starting a new game and other settings can be changed in-game by bringing up the Settings Menu in-game ane selecting the Difficulty settings button at the top of the window. Changed the mass of the CRY-0300 from 2,5t to 1.5t to align with other parts. Added a Database check for orphaned Kerbal and Freezer Part Entries and cleanup on startup. Fixed config error in texture. Changed DF VAB/SPH editor filter if ON DeepFreeze parts will only show in the DF category and NOT show in the Utilities category.

Added some more KSPedia pages - What do people want to see here?
Released on 2016-04-24
Added first-cut KSPedia Pages - this is really just testing out this feature and is a very rough first cut. Plans to expand and improve this.
Support for NEW RPM - JSIAdvTransparentPods - no longer supports the OLD RPM TJSITransparentPods. You need RPM - JSITransparentPods V0.25.0 or above.
Support for Kerbalism Mod.
1) When you freeze/thaw from internal cam (alternate camera) the camera loses the transform reference point at the end of the process.
2) When inside the CRY-0300 with the External Doors closed, if you zoom out strange camera effects mean the door is only partially visible.
3) The screen messages when in Cryopod-Camera mode are not showing all the kerbal's names.
4) When you change settings from Stock to Toolbar and change scenes, the toolbar appears, but stock button is still there. A restart or several scene changes fixes it.
5) When there is a Kerbal on the ladder in front of the CRY-0300 and the doors are open the Internal Overlays the kerbal and blocks them from view. This is actually an RPM - JSIAdvTransparentPods bug.
6) The CRY-0300R has lost it's ability to show cool Window Freeze/Thawing animation effects.
Background Processing is not available under KSP 1.1. Unless the mod author updates it soon I will look to put my own EC background processing
into DeepFreeze. For now if you are using EC usage the non-Background Processing method still works (it plays catch-up when you swith to the vessel).
There is no version of TAC LS for KSP 1.1 - so it is not currently supported.
Released on 2016-03-15
Fixed bug when using EC for frozen kerbals is turned ON and BackgroundProcessor is not installed. When you switch back to a vessel after a long period of time and you don't have enough EC to catch-up on the EC usage DeepFreeze was not correctly consuming 95% of remanining EC and was executing the Kill/Emergency Thaw procedure.
Fixed GUI when EC usage is on where the fields were not spanning the resizable window correctly.
Improved error handling for a spurious bug in Tracking Station that cannot be tracked down.
Removed DFInterface.DLL API. Wrapper API now provided for other Mods to interface to DeepFreeze.
Removed use of SMInterface.DLL API to interface to Ship Manifest. Replaced with Reflection Wrapper class. Requires Ship Manifest V188.8.131.52 or above.
Changed DEFAULT CLS setting for the CRY-0300 and CRY-0300R to be Passable (allowing unrestricted crew transfers), this is due to a known bug in CLS/Ship Manifest mods.
Will change this setting back once Papa_Joe fixes that bug in CLS/SM.
Earlier versions of Ship Manifest no longer supported.
Updated Mini-AVC included to newer version to stop log spam.
Added Community Tech Tree science node definitions (via Module Manager file, requires Module Manager).
Re-Factored a lot of code and utilities (Code Housekeeping).
Released on 2016-02-18
V0.20.3.0 "bug Fixes" Fixed bug when thawing some kerbals vessel where vessel reference transform was not set in some cases. Modified debugging and error messages during thawing to assist easier bug hunting in the future.
