Build your own working GPS system!
What if Kerbals couldn’t just reach into the fabric of their universe to determine their position? What if, like us, they needed to develop technology to measure their position with any certainty?
The Kerbal Space Program forum’s “KARPA GPS Challenge” thread gave me the idea to develop an actual working GPS plugin for the game. The result is a plugin that works the same way that the real global navigation satellite systems do! It calculates your vessel’s position by measuring distance to GPS satellites in known positions in orbit.
Now you can launch your own Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) constellation, and then start using your satellite network to navigate by adding a Figaro satellite navigation receiver module to any part in your spacecraft!
