About Kerbal Engineer Redux

Kerbal Engineer reveals important statistics about your ship and its orbit during building and flight.

Learn about the HUD system with KSP-TV streamer "ShimmyTheJJ":
KSP Quick Tutorial - Kerbal Engineer HUD Config

Please note that by default KER runs using a career unlock system.  This means that when in career mode it will require either an Engineer skilled Kerbal, an Engineer Chip/ER7500 part placed on the vessel or a level 3 tracking station to work in flight.  Unless one of these three conditions is present, the KER icon will be disabled and greyed out in flight.  This mode is completely optional though, and by clicking on "Settings" on the Kerbal Engineer Redux window in the editor, you may change its mode from "Career" to "Partless".

    You can get KER for KSP 1.0.5 here -
    I don't know why it has not yet released

    Some instructions:
    1. Click "Download ZIP" button and download the archive.
    2. Unzip it.
    3. Copy the folder "Kerbal Engineer" from the folder "Output" to your GameData.
    4. Enjoy

    KER in v1.0.5


    as far as I can tell it works fine in KSP v1.0.5, so an update does not seem to be urgent.

    It's currently the only mod I use. I like it unmodified. But the information output of KER is just too important to miss.

    Jet engines don't seem to work with KER anymore. They just display a delta-V of 0 m/s.

    Thanks! I was using Ckan manager to inject mods and it didn't load. The most important mods which I recommend are MechJeb, KER (of course) and Ven's Stock Revamp.

    Hmmm has KSP started crashing for you to since the recent Engineer update? For the first time ever KSP keeps crashing out on me andthe only thing I've updated recently is Engineer. I don't use modded parts or anything else really. So far all I can narrow it down to is possibly this mod for now.

    the current version works with 1.0.3 (23-jun) , you just need to edit the KerbalEngineer.version file with notepad and change ksp's "PATCH" from 2 to 3

  • #26

    It worked for me even before I did the change you suggested. However, for some reason I can't load my Space Station. When I do so I can't interact with it, crew is not displayed and after some time the entire station disappears, only leaving probe core. I hope that the update of Kerbal Engineer comes soon and hopefully solves the problem, since I have put the engineering module (or whatever it is called)  on, meaning that if I try to get rid off KER it just doesn't load the space station, because it contains invalid parts.

    If you have any experience with this I would very much appreciate any help, since I am relatively new to the modding and I just started playing KSP after couple of years.  Right now, I can only hope that the next KER update will solve it because at this time I am helpless in terms of mods...
