Version 1.0 was released on April 27th , 2015. The update is known as "We Have Liftoff!", referencing the fact that 1.0 is the official release.

New

Editor

  • New Engineer's report Toolbar App, provides warnings and advice during construction, notifying players of possible design issues with their ships.
  • Added 'Cross-Section Profile' Filter to Parts List.
  • Added Thumbnail images for Craft files in both Launch Dialog and Craft Browser screens.
  • Added 'Merge' button to Load dialog, allowing ships to be loaded without replacing the current one. The craft loaded will be shown as a subassembly.
  • Added confirmation dialogs when overwriting a save, launching or leaving editor without saving.

Aerodynamics

  • Complete overhaul of the flight model.
  • Lift is now correctly calculated and applied for all lift-generating parts.
  • Drag is now pre-calculated automatically based on part geometry, and applied based on part orientation in flight.
  • Both lift and drag are dependant on density and the speed of sound; both properly calculated from temperature and pressure.
  • Stack-mounted parts can occlude each other for drag calculations.
  • Lift-Induced drag now properly simulated.
  • Stalls are now properly simulated.
  • A new body-lift system meaning parts can induce lift even if they are not designed to do so.

Heat Simulation

  • Completely revised part heating model, energy flux is considered, not merely temperature.
  • All game temperatures changed from 'Kervin' to proper Kelvin.
  • Radiative, conductive, and convective heating and cooling are simulated.
  • Parts can have individual radiative, conductive, and convective properties.
  • All parts now emit a blackbody radiation glow if they get hot enough.
  • Conduction between attached parts is more accurately modelled.
  • Parts can occlude other parts from being exposed to sunlight, celestial body albedo/radiation and supersonic flow.
  • Reentry/hypersonic flight heating is now simulated.
  • Added difficulty Setting to scale aerodynamic heating.
  • Atmospheric temperature, and thus density, takes latitude and sun position into account.
  • Celestial bodies accurately emit thermal radiation making nearby craft warmer.
  • Service modules, fairings and cargo bays can be used to protect parts inside from heat.
  • Heat shields provide (finite) ablation-based protection for parts behind them.
