Information Changelog Stats

Short version: if your landed ship/plane/base/whatever jumps up wildly when you switch to it, this mod might help you. (or might make it worse, who knows)

Some reports suggest that 1.5.1 still suffers from it...

Longer version:

Most bouncing was fixed in KSP 1.4.x. If you still experience some issues with it, you can give it a try

There's confirmed Bug #16159 in KSP 1.3.1 and it's not clear when and how it would be fixed. Not everyone is affected by this, but if you are, this mod can save your base from wrecking. The reason for bouncing is that sometimes the game places the vessel slightly beneath the ground and then turns on physics engine. The ground suddenly realizes that something got dented into it and kicks that thing out. This mod prevents it by moving the vessel slightly above the ground just before the physics kicks in and gently releases after that.

You can find more information about features and configuration in KSP Forum post

Version 0.8.4 for Kerbal Space Program 1.3.1

Released on 2018-03-17

Probably final release for 1.3.1 The 1.4.1 is here and from the first glance it works much smoother - I was not able to find something to complain about regarding bouncing on vessel unpacking. Some unorthodox stuff like mooring vessels with KAS still might be tricky, but we'll see it later.

Changes Addressed a bug when vessel is placed under the roof. https://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/169206-131-worldstabilizer-bugfix-for-vessels-bouncing-on-scene-load/&do=findComment&comment=3310632

Version 0.8.3 for Kerbal Space Program 1.3.1

Released on 2018-01-15

Previous version introduced hard dependency of specific KAS/KIS version. This versions drops the dependency Some black magic around moored vessels has a slight chance to work. I.e. vessel, moored by KAS harpoon and winch more often stays moored and intact than not.
