Anatid Robotics and Multiversal Mechatronics proudly presents the first flight assistant autopilot: MechJeb
Forum thread here
is this a new version of the Mechheb??
I’m wondering too if this is an official update to mechjeb for 18.2 or just somebody uploading mechjeb to call their own since the original one that I find on here and this one are uploaded by different accounts on the spaceport.
When I tested the original in 18.2 it was working fine so not sure what this one adds to it (if anything) as the overview is very vague.
Apologies, I see that the topic linked is also written by r4m0n, so must be my mistake about which one of the mechjeb’s listed on the space port would be the official mechjeb.
Thank your r4m0n. I love Mechjeb because w/o it i wouldn’t be going very far
Love this mod to death… can’t do anything without it lol but I wish the pod parts were updated with resources and thrust vector nodes!
I had MASSIVE issues with all my MechJeb equipped vehicles and launchers after the latest MechJeb update.. I spent an hour trying to figure it out.
My vehicles were jerking uncontrollably to the side whenever i tried steering them.
Turns out, the later update changed the MechJeb cylinder parts to be pods, and having 2 pods at once next to eachother essentially breaks the control of a vehicle.
Easy fix enough, just only use the radial MechJeb “walkietalkie” module!
You may want to add this workaround in the update notes, since it is a quite significant change that will break peoples existing crafts.
And please, add the cylindrical parts back into the Utility category as “non-pod” variants. I loved using them.
Odd thing happened…all my MechJeb stuff dissappeared sometime between now and last night’s last game session. Checked my virus scan logs and it didn’t nuke anything. Anyone else have this happen to this mod, or any mod before?
Please… auto rendevous with rcs/main engine TOGGLES

I’ve tried multiple times to get this mod to work, yet have not yet succeeded. I’ve unzipped and placed the plugins, parts, and ships in their respective places, but when it comes time to launch a rocket the menu that gives you the option to turn mechjeb on is nowhere to be found. On top of that, when the rocket takes off, it leaves the mechjeb pod where it was; just floating there sad and confused as to why the rocket left him all by himself. Am I doing something wrong?
My OS is Windows 8, I open KSB, It will to occur an error.
I’ve had the same problem: I copy everything over to their respective folders and I can see it loading on the splash screen, but I have no interface. Any ideas?
Seems like a godsend, but freezes the game repeatedly in the VAB. When I *can* actually get a craft out to the launch pad, the ascent autopilot works wonderfully, but the rendezvous module usually (but not always) just causes my rocket to spin in place when I try to align orbits.
Suggestion: Have the auto-pilot take overheating into account, particularly during ascent. A good ship likely doesn’t have many issues with overheating, but it would be nice if the AP would go “oh, that’s a bit hot”. xD
I have an issue… When I were headed for the mun suddenlt the Mechjeb folders disappeard… I wondered if I touched something but couldn’t fin any buttons to turn it back again… It`s like i never had Mechjeb… If there is a toggle button what do i pres to get it back? and if it isn`t what should I do?
love this mod a great addon i would still be in the atmosphere if it weren’t for this mod haven’t had any issues
This mod is great if you get it working with out mechjeb I was still crashing in to the mun and my best orbit was a pe of 105.945 and a ap of 128.987 but now with mechjeb my orbits are perfect and I landed on the mun and the min in one day.
But please keep updating this is the best mod every.
I granted the 5 stars to your excellent job R4amon, thanks a lot.
It would be so cool to see MechJeb being able to take you to all of the planets. It is a great mod. *****
I’ve hidden the landing window, how do I reset their positions? Thanks
There is a problem with the landing autopilot, it doesn’t want to land.
to get it to work you have to put the mechjeb part on, which is under control page, hope this is helpful
Is this ready for KSP 0.18.4?
I hope they add docking autopilot soon
whenever I get into Sun orbit anything that directly touches the mechjeb part goes black and once this has happened when I try and land somewhere just before I land about 50 meter squared area goes black as well. this also happens when I try and land on minmus.
Love the add on. Could it be possible to have an auto dock function.
Unable to install in 0.18.4. It worked great with .3 but since I updated to .4 I cannot see any mechjeb parts that actually initialize the interface. Re-downloaded KSP and MechJeb, but no luck. It also caused all of my current flights with mechjeb parts to be deleted. Any ideas on how to get it to install properly?
the thing I said happened before also happens with 18.4.
I solved my problem, so I thought I’d post just in case someone else was experiencing the same thing.
First, I renamed the plugins folder to have a lowercase p.
Second, I ran KSP in Admin mode.
One of these two things seems to have fixed it. I can play it normally (ie not in admin mode) and all the parts show up. Score one for persistence!
I can’t load the game, after installing the mod. The screen during game loading freeze. Do you have any solution to help me to play with this great mod? I use it for rendez vous wich is hard to complete without it…
Problem solve by reinstalling the game
Its not working on 18.4 please fix this problem. or reply the fix please help i wanna dock something for so long.
this is the most useful mod every thank you so much
It’s working on 0.19, yay.
I love This Mod!!!
A must need for all your Kerbanauts out there.
I have downloaded it but it wont come up when i play the game. Any one have any suggestions?
Works great for me. Only problem I have is that sometime I have to restart game because vessel info is not visable in VBA and that automatic randezvous never got me closer than 2,5 km.
mechjeb works for a while then the ascent module stops working. I can build a new rocket and mechjeb will not work. it seems to fail if I end a flight while in active ascent mode. everything else continues to work. I have tried to remove the mechjeb module from the ship save it, launch it and then add back mech jeb but it seems like it will never work again on the same rocket.
if there a way to reset the location of all of the mechjeb windows? its like the window hos slipped out of view. I have increased my screen size as well as change to full screen mode in the hopes that the ascent module will come back.
(KSP 0.19.1) MechJeb loading error.
MechJeb freeze on mumech_mechjeb. Pls fix this.
Feature request: Would it be possible for the landing autopilot to indicate whether or not you are coming in over land or water? This would be extremely useful.
For me, this version of Mechjeb crash my computer. Without thuis mod, no crash.
As a old version is ok with the 0.19.1 ?
I wish you could use mechjeb to dock too that would be awesome
amazing, last comments right, get docking down and thats about all u could ask for. Great mod
i transfered all the files over and it still wont work help!!!!!!
Bad Pilot + MechJeb = (50% catastrophe chance) (50% big success chance) (100% satisfaction guaranteed) (I just rated this 5 stars)
Just saw Scott Manley’s demo of Mechjeb 2.0 on youtube … I’m highly impressed. Especially love the Automatic Docking System.. This will make my life so much easier … I SUUUUCK at docking … Can’t wait for the full release.
I also just watched Scott’s video on the 2.0 Jeb !!! Looks fan-friggin-tastic!! I can’t wait for this to be released!!! great work man !!! like the post above I too suck very much at docking
Everyone, if you want the new 2.0 version go on the forum page and download the pre-release.
Great Add-on Too.
yes Mechjeb 2.0.4 is out
Hi…Im a noob so bear with me..
I’ve got KSP (latest) and had MechGeb 1.9.8 installed and working. Anyway, just grabbed the 2.0.4 version and copied the files into the appropriate folders and relaunched KSP but the old 1.9.8 ui still shows. What am I doing wrong?
I am giving the new version a miss, and sticking with 1.9.8
The new version is giving me way too many problems and also not compatible with Damned robotics, which makes mechjeb useless for me now as thats why I used it.
I have the 0.19.1 version of the game, and the 1.9.8, but the game freezes when it’s loading the parts, at startup.
Any ideas how to get around that?
I cannot get this damn thing to work, I have KSP version 0.19.1, downloaded and installed Mechjeb in all the correct folders, I do not get any Mechjeb parts under “control”, but have Mechjeb parts on other parts tabs…………..frustrating…………
Version 2.0.6. needs some polishing but docking autopilot is almost 100% sucessfull. So far best docking assistance.
Only mod I have and it’s not compatible with new version 2+ is RemoteTech, at least lunching autopilot doesnt work with that when its unmanned ship. I compensate it with 1.9.8. sticking on ship so i have both MechJebs. Once the ship is on orbit, it works fine. Also I would gladly see heading/inclination switch at ascent autopilot again. let’s hope.
I’ve been trying to download the 2.0 but it keeps on saying that the forum pages are down. Is there any other way for me to download it?
I have 2 suggestions
1. I change resolution occasionally from full screen 4:3 to windowed widescreen, and I noticed that when I turn to widescreen, I can’t see or retrieve windows that I moved below in 4:3 screen. It would be nice to have a “reset windows position” button, or some way for the plugin to automatically reset position when moving to different resolution.
2. I changed ascent path values once when I was fiddling around, and I didn’t remember what the default settings were. I couldn’t even find any data about it on the internet (at least while the forum is down). So.. Another reset problem. It would be nice to have a “reset to default values” button.
Here is the newest pre Release dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11840057/MechJeb2_2.0.6.zip
Dear MechJeb staff,
I bought this game over Steam and have tried to install this add on multiple time unfortunately it will not work is there anything I could be doing wrong or can I just not use it if i bought it on steam
Currently using this with the NovaPunch mod. Absolutely glorious once I figured out the rendezvous and docking stuff
I think you should make it so it will go to duna and other planets
why isny this that lastest update?
At first I thought of MechJeb as blatant cheating and against the spirit of the game…. and then I came to the realization that it is simply Gene K(ranz)erman back at mission control making it all happen as it should.
Thanks for a such a great add on.
auto dock please
update it to v2.0
anyone else haveing problems running this mod i have tryed doing a cleane wipe and installing the 2.0.7 version and still it wont work
It’s a fantastically well done add-on but I dont agree with autopilots doing everything for me so I’m not using it.
To hell with anyone who calls this cheating. This makes things far more real. In real life the computer does the flying. You just feed it the information. Manual flying is for morons who like to crash and burn. That’s why these systems were created… to keep us alive.
You can only cheat yourself in this game.
Ok im having a problem and i know its me. I tried installing this like all the other mods. Putting files in the correct folders and so on. But is this right? in version 1.9.8 there are 10 sub folders under parts. 1 under plugin, and 1 under ships. But in 2.0.7 there is only 1 under parts and 1 under plugin. Do i have to install an earlier version first. The mechjeb radio does not appear anywhere in the game. Thank you in advance
Alex, this isn’t the Forum. Go there for help requests. This isn’t the most up to date version. Go to http://www.mechjeb.com/ to get the latest version.
I know we shouldn’t be putting our problems on here but is this for .19 or .19.1 because it is not working for me and i have asked on the forum with no reply
This mod has been abandoned.. Someone should make a replacement soon!
OOps, please ignore my previous comment, It was not supposed to be there..
please update this mod
This mod works with 0.20.0, but no new features. I’ve tried and even gotten to Dres with it! I assure you, on my computer it’s perfectly safe. I’m not sure about others, though.
Since 0.20 I’ve seen a graphic bug in the “rounded” mechjeb (the one that opens and sparkles) that looks strange, like a glitch… Does it Happens to someone else?
Yes. Only problem with compadibility.
When I install this mod along with the Modular Multiwheels pack, most of my parts do not show up in the part menu, does anyone else have this problem?
Great Mod. The autopilot feels like cheating but saves a lot of mucking about and you would get you would have a sophisticated guidance system in real life.
Once placed, but not attached to the space craft I’m unable to pick up up the modules.
new update here:
Installed correctly, but no menu, no interface or anything, simply not visible. What am I doing wrong?
well just got registered
my first comment and its got to be the on the best mod I downloaded ,
its a great mod, but I can`t make it work with the latest version of the game, it works with 2.0 I think it is,, but worth going back to older version as some planes don`t work also with the new version
this game has one of the most potential I`ve seen for a long time, if they do it right they will bath in $$$$
nvm, I reinstall it and it works good now, but testing the px2
votl plane, but its one that is doesn`t want to fly, shame it would of been nice to land vertical, but that is the plane,
great mod, not all planes will work with it, testing a bunch of them right now, and it makes life a little easier, this should have been install as part of the game so u would have the option to use it or not
I find it useful for a lot of flight to other planets, I plan on colonising a few,ty
Is it my computer, or is there only a mechjeb radial unit now? Please answer this, someone.
.20.2 update? Most parts don’t work now.
Guys in the .20.2 version there is only one part, so dont worry.
This conflicts with hyperedit.
Great Mod easy to use and helpped me to move around space with eases
This is great
Love this mod. Best one i have. I so want to send you money right now. Thanks for your hard work. It shows.
Just curious, when do you think the 0.21 build will be complete? cant fly without it!!
@Matthew Schoffelmeer – 0.21 MechJeb is already out mate http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/showthread.php/12384-PART-0-20-Anatid-Robotics-MuMech-MechJeb-Autopilot-v2-0-8
So why hasn’t this been uploaded to the Mech Jeb front page?

Hey guys this mod version still works on the latest version, but I recogmend you download the recent one here.
With The Newest Mechjeb 2.0.9 I be using landing guidance to land on the dark side of the moon in pitch black but when i landing the program thinks i higher than i am and i end up hitting the surface. I Think this is because Mechjeb is taking values from the Attitude (ASL) it should instead take values or use values based Attitude (ture) if it did it would stop my moon lander from crashing in pitch black
It doesn’t work for me!!!
I installed it properly and everything, but there are several problems with it.
1.The modules con only be placed once, ie I cannot put them on one part of the space craft then move them, I would have start a whole new craft! (The premade module in the “load” section cannot be moved either)
2.The system does not work. Even though I have a module on the ship, and the menus, the mechjab does nothing!. I set it for an orbit of 150000m, and it just goes up, then loses control. At the gravity turn point it shows no effort of trying to turn! The only thing that does work is the Auto-Throttle. The auto-Stages don’t work either.
Download 2.0.9 from the fourm
This normally works until now, is the mod unable to be used in the new version of KSP?
Some options won’t show when you select them E.G Wanting to travel to Duna from the mun orbit, nothing pops up anymore. Yes all installed properly as before.
I downloaded and tried to follow the directions. I can place it on my ships but none of it works. My ascent autopilot just crashes every ship and my smart A.S.S will not even pull up the window. I have version 1.9.8
As far as I am aware Mechjeb seems to be broken for Version 0.21.1
Many features do not open a box the autopilots crash the ships because Smart A.S.S is not working.
As of August 6th
does this work on 0.21.1 ?
Much safer than Mechjeb 2 currently.
Clearly, this version of mechjeb is for .19 only. Don’t. Even bother installing it in any other version. That’s just moronic. There is a .21 mwchjeb in the forums, though. On another note, Y U NO UPDATE, R4MON?!
wth is this a scame I dowmloaeded it and its messing around with my rocket and crashing it
Where’s the new update?
Latest Here: http://jenkins.mumech.com/job/MechJeb2%20Release/lastSuccessfulBuild/artifact/jenkins-MechJeb2%20Release-4/MechJeb2-126.96.36.199.zip
http://jenkins.mumech.com/job/MechJeb2/ (latest work)
WHY HAVEN’T YOU UPDATED YET!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mechjeb2 is not loading. Can someone tell please where the files are supposed to go? I have tried several combinations with no luck.
I fucking hate the spaceport!!!! GRRRRRR
I used to have fun flying into the ground…. then MechJeb Came!!!!!
Mechjeb is too hard, I don’t understand how to use the interface.
hi. i installed mechjeb but it refuses to let me place any of the parts. anyone have a solution?
Above links to latest MJ…works with .22 KSP but you’ll need 2 installations of the game because you can’t play career with this mod installed. Have fun!!
It’s not showing ascent guidance and stuff for me. Only info windows, no auto stuff.
That is utterly wrong. MechJeb if you configure it right works perfectly fine for Career.
the only thing i use mechjeb for is the ascent guidance but i cant find it anyone know how to make it or fix this?
Having an issue where I cannot find the Pod version, only the radial. Anyone have advice on this?
my mechjeb is missing ascent autopilot as well.
hey again, i figured that mechjebs functions unlock as you progress through tech tree. i noticed that as i was reading the part .cfg file.
For those having problems using ascent etc I Just found, if you put a ship on the launchpad in sandbox mode with mech jeb attached and open all the windows you want to use. Then come out of sandbox and load your ship in campain mode, magically all the windows will stay open. Just don’t close them down or you will have to start again. Hope this helps
ascent autopilot is enabled after researching “unmanned probes”. however you can modify mechjebs .cfg file so you can use it from the beginning. open it and simply replace all the other advanced technologies needed with the “start” technology – the one you have at the start of career.
you can also modify mod parts ie. Kethane + KAS parts so you can use them in your career, just assign them a technology in their .cfg file
Stupidest shit EVER! Set it to land at KSC. It put me on a fucking ESCAPE TRAJECTORY. WTF? The AI is dumber than the ghosts in pacman. FUCKING PACMAN! Ascent kinda worked, but when you want to change any FUCKING thing you have to click more than a 10000000 times. WHY! It could have worked so great, but you guys made it take a fucking dick into its mouth and begin to suck, WHY!
Calm it, calm it. It may not be that accurate (I mean spaceplane landing guidance crashes me into the VAB most of the time) but I is not fully complete, or another solution, stop being lazy and just land yourself!
Using this version with .22. Does this cause the game to load insanely slow? The first loading screen where it’s running through your plugins and you can see all the names. Usually this flies through all of them in about 1-2 minutes. Once I load this it can take 10-20 seconds to load a single file. I unload this and it goes right back to normal.
MechJeb 2 (AR202 case) 4 000 000 c
I unlocked almost all parts from tree, after i put mech jeb after first mission my science points are -2680.
I am using Kerbal economy mod. 2000 c = 1 science point
You need make in every mission more than 2000 science points just for meche jeb part.
In cfg file price is much lower, but in game it is more than 4 000 000
mechjeb is not selectable from the parts list after command module is placed……….
strange. i have that tier unlocked with mechjeb in it but it says in game that it isnt unlocked yet..
Ok can anyone tell me exactly what I have to do so that all the options pop up on the side bar when you equip mechjeb in career mode? All options are not available except ship info and Smart. ASS along with few other ones (many have same issues). One gave a solution that you have to open the mechjeb window in sandbox mode, quit and then start career mode. But that is not a solution to this problem. ANYONE? HELP!!!!
ok, nvm. got it.
Thank your r4m0n !
Next update, make the mechjeb radio a lot smaller, for probes and landers, because when I launch a tiny probe, the mechjeb radio looks huge and it’s just awkward to place.
Please make a small mechjeb module
Just out of curiosity, you’re supposed to be able to see the windows while using stock parts as well as MechJeb parts, right? Because for some reason, the windows aren’t showing up for stock ships; only while using a MechJeb pod, and that’s really inconvenient…is there any way I can change that?
i cant get all the windows to show only 5 or 6 are, any help would be greatly appreciated
@Emilio Your best bet is just inserting the 1m Mechjeb modules, or the radial jeb cases. Yhey weigh basically nothing and enable everything you need.
No edit: You can also use this: http://kerbalspaceport.com/mechjeb-command-pods-probes-0-18-robaus-warehouse/
For all whom are strugglingwith the lack of functions at the career mode, i”ve been using it and making scientific missions and every success and unlocked branch from the tech tree, there are more options of mechjeb available. I think developers put science point conditions, and if you think about it, it’s logical, to keep the fun on career mode. First achieve some things all by yourself, like circular orbits, landings at pole and moon and stuff, and then, you can have more functions.
I have a HUGE problem. I’m using the Rendevous Autopilot and at 60000m from my target, the Mun, the controls lock, i cant control it!
Did I install wrong?
So I am confused… I can’t get it to work. I am in and about to launch and stuff, and I turn on autopilot to go to the Mun. It won’t move… Or anything… It sits there… Using warp time… but that’s it…. Can anyone help?
Guys check out this awesome game http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/snowedinstudios/windforge
i fixed my issue, i have to click (control form here and then i have control!
I love Mechjeb, I like using the rendezvous and ascent path editor as much as the maneuver editor. The thing is, keeping Mechjeb in KSP starts to fracture it. Mechjeb is a perfect mod but it starts to lag after a long time of use. It may also be because I updated to Windows 8 to 8.1. Please fix this or make it more compatible for Windows 8.1!
I’m having trouble with this one and add ons in general; I install the files to the GameData folder and I can see it in the construction menu but it’s grayed out, when I mouse over it says I need something about some R&D entry? What’s going on with this? Thanks! -J
Just thought to check something; they seem to work in sandbox mode, but the previous problem occurs in career mode. Do I need to unlock certain tech to use add ons? Do they just not work in career mode? Naturally I’d like to use them in career mode!
Hmmmmmm…..so, it seems it doesn’t work in career mode or maybe it comes very late. I’m currently at the point ov ion engines and very heavy rocketry and there ist no button for MechJeb. Im’ not totally sure wether it might come at the very end of the tech tree? But then this would be unrealistic, because the very basic things, like orbital flight curve design are…well basic enough that you should get them already very near the beginning.
Also it claims, that no Module is needed (anymore) for MechJeb functionality but to get the magic button on the right side of the screen I actually hat to use a special MechJeb pod that was only present in the pod list, wehen playing in sandbox mode.
I’ll play without then .
I meant atmospheric flight curve of course, not orbital. You know, the curve the rocket flies between liftoff and orbit.
I fixed the problem. Bacically, Mechjeb2 does not support Windows 8.1. You need the battery plugged in every time you use it. Anyone elce with the same problem?
