FAQ

  • What is CapCom?
    • CapCom is a user interface that allows for reviewing, accepting, declining or canceling contracts outside of the Mission Control Center building
    • It provides a number of features not found in the Mission Control Center; these are described below
  • How do the keyboard shortcuts work?
    • When the window is selected keyboard shortcuts are available for several functions
    • The Up/Down arrows are used to cycle through contracts in the currently selected list
    • The Right/Left arrows are used to switch lists
    • The Enter key is used to accept an offered contract
    • The Del key is used to decline or cancel a contract
    • The Left Ctrl key is used to select multiple contracts when held down
    • All keys can be reassigned in the settings window
  • Is CapCom designed to replace the in-flight contract list app?
    • CapCom can be used to monitor active contracts, but it is not designed as a replacement for the Contracts App
    • For an addon designed specifically for doing that try the Contracts Window +
  • Something has gone wrong; where can I get help?
    • If you run into errors, contracts not visible in a list, contracts not being accepted, window not being displayed properly, etc... report problems either to the GitHub Issues section or the KSP Forum Thread

 


Sort Bar

Controls contract sorting options and order
  • Contracts can be sorted based on a variety of criteria in either ascending or descending order
    • Contract difficulty, as noted by the number of stars
    • Contract reward amounts; Funds, Science, or Reputation
    • Contract agency, sorted alphabetically
    • Target Planet, not all contracts have target planets associated with them; addon contracts rely on the planet being in the contract title
    • Time Remaining, sorted by expiration date for offered contracts, deadline for active contracts, and completion date for finished contracts
  • Current active contract count and max contract limit are shown above
Selecting the rewards sorting option will open a drop-down menu; select the desired reward type here
