Default Shukra Venus balloon station source code
by Artlav 08-25-2018, 05:34 PM

I am no longer active as an add-on developer, and don't even have the means and environment to fix bugs.
So all my old add-ons are effectively orphaned now.
If i keep them to myself, nothing will ever happen. But if i let them out there is at least a chance someone might adopt them.
Some of these add-ons were considered good, and are still sought after. I'm also way past caring about where the code will end up or who takes the credit.
Most of them were written over a decade ago, when i had yet to learn the value of many good coding practices and ways, so the code is an unreadable mess.

An add-on that was asked about recently is the Venus floating station, Shukra.
Here is the full source code of it: https://github.com/artlav/venus_balloon_station

Provided as is under "i don't care" license, project files not included, needs UMMU SDK, needs fixing and/or updating to work with modern OSDK and VS, assets not included (get them from OHM).

If someone were to adopt it:
-The bug in question is likely related to the free floating behavior of the station when time acceleration is low
-It fixes itself in space by landing with absurdly long landing gear, which might also play foul with some new physics/terrain features

Good luck.

If there are any other add-ons which might benefit from having the code open, please name them.
It's unlikely that any of them would be in any better shape, however.
It's a "some assembly required" type of deal.
