Flight software for automating the flight of a Falcon 9 in KSP using kOS. The basic information for the f9-full-system folder is listed in this readme, but for more complete information and walkthroughs on each individual flight, visit http://tchayden.com/ksp-f9-flight-gnc/.

Requirements

Currently this is verified to work on KSP 1.3, with the corresponding mod versions. Obviously you will need Kerbal Space Program, but you will also need the following:

Setup

A few changes have to be made before the script will work perfectly.

  • You need to get the correct RO/RSS configuration file for the SpaceX pack. The one included might work, but I had to edit mine. The configs are found in the configs/ of the repository, and honestly I'm not quite sure how they work so I added all three I had. As far as I know RR_KKLaunchersSpaceX.cfg is the interesting one (and the one I edited), but you might need them all.
  • You need to set the tag of the center engine to be "center_engine". This allows the script to throttle it independently of the others.
  • You need to set two opposite side engines to be "side_engine". This allows the script to throttle them independently of the others.
  • Name the CPUs f9s1 and f9s2 respectively.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
