  1. The PS4 release of KSP is notable for its abundance of game-breaking crashes and errors. While playing around trying to launch a big orbital scanner satellite, I went to switch to map mode, only to see... my craft flying on Kerbin, with a white circle in the background. The text said "Focus: Kerbin", and I was able to scroll through all the planets, but my orbit path was not displayed. It's irreversible, and the pause menu is also "frozen" in that none of the buttons do anything except "Revert flight"- that one causes the game to freeze entirely. It appears to be linked to the use of larger fairing sizes... I think. So far, both of my largest rockets do this, and they both have the 3.75m fairing piece installed. Oddly enough, it doesn't happen with any other of my crafts. Is there any fix to this? I have yet to try launching my rockets with the fairings removed to see if that's the issue...
  2. I have been having some problems with my mods. I would appear that one of the mods I have has broken the parachutes (the parachutes are empty objects, when I put them on my ship I get the warning that I don't have any parachutes, they don't show up in staging, so on, they just don't exist from a function standpoint), some other things, and all of BDArmory. I could go through taking out each one and trying it but my computer is a bit slow and it would take hours. I'm hoping I can get a quicker response on the forums. I'm going to list everything in my GameData folder, so if you know of any clashes, please tell me.

  3. I'm starting a new question (this isn't really a question but in fact a topic, but it's related to this but you can only ask questions here), and it is about the WORST bugs and glitches. Post your worst bugs and glitches here, and also, if possible and if you know how, a solution to the problem. I have had so many that it's not even funny. I'll provide a little background about the bugs and glitches I experience, and why they are SO ANNOYING for me.I work two jobs, and when I get home at 5pm (Australian time), I usually have until 9pm until I need to get ready for a 10pm night shift until 1 am. Anyway, getting off topic. So I have like four hours and I devote that time to playing KSP. For some reason, when I load the game, it will freeze, and I'll have to restart it. That happens around 3, 4 or even 5 times before a successful load, and that's not all. I am writing this in frustration, as the game froze twice, but then loaded on the third time (third time lucky?), and when I loaded my science mode save file, everything went fine, and I saw that I had some science points left, so I spent them. Also, when I'm in the science tech tree, when I click on a node and press 'Research', the science will be spent, but the node will still be grey, like if I haven't unlocked it yet or something. I found out that if I just exit the science tech tree and go back in, it will be green and I'll own the parts. But that's not the major problem. When I clicked 'Close', to go back to the KSC and build a craft with the new parts, as you usually would, it didn't close. The top menu stayed on the science tech tree, but 3/4 of the way down at my screen, it had the KSC menu where you can timewarp to the next morning or whatever. I suffered through the loading screen freezing twice before I got back in, and this time I steered clear of the RnD building, thinking that it must be a rare bug or glitch with the science tech tree. So when I clicked on the VAB, the same thing happened. I clicked on it, but it wouldn't load. It was then unclickable. I tried the SPH, and it happened again. Trying every single building, but no, once I clicked on a building, it was unclickable again. I then pressed the pause button and tried clicking on 'Exit To Main Menu'. And, when I clicked it, it didn't exit. It was ALSO UNCLICKABLE. I tried every button in the pause menu, and they were unclickable once I clicked them even once. I am VERY frustrated, and I am trying to see if I could fix this by just reloading the game. But, it has now froze twice, and I don't know what to do. I work for eight hours in an office job, and KSP is the only thing that pulls me through, just thinking 'at least after 3 more hours of Excel spreadsheets I can go home and attempt a rover landing on Eeloo, or work on my asteroid base or whatever' keeps me from going insane at my boring workplace. Sorry for this LENGTHY forum post, but yeah, I'm VERY frustrated and I want to just uninstall the game, again.(I had to uninstall it the first time because of a modulemanager glitch where it reloads the database, and it deleted every flag, part, save file, sound, resource, and basically every single item in the Kerbal Space Program folder except for the patcher and actual game). Why does this happen?! Why?!
  4. hi. Just a bug i encountered, when i am in space or launching, if i were to press LB + RB to bring up the system map. The sky turns into space and brings in out the planets to view. Never used to do this. Any help would be great thanks. I cannot load the system map at all now.
  5. PLEASE update the xbox one version of ksp, it's very hard to play with so many bugs. I love the game so much but geeze, guys come on. no navigation button, random freezing of ships, massive fsp drops for no reason, quick save problems and the list goes on and on. So please PLEASE help us out and fix some of this. Thank you
  6. Hi all, When I do the tutorial, To the Mun Part 1, I get to the second screen and it asks to place a maneuver on the orbit. This does not work. The orbit just turns gray, and I cant continue the tutorial. This was also verified by another user on a Steam account. Version (WindowsPlayer)
  7. We all have had moments when we botched a mission out of our own stupidity. But I've often wondered how many of us have had our plans thwarted by some strange, and sometimes hilarious bug! Recently I had this happen when I tried to launch a reasonably large hypersonic aircraft with two parasite aircraft. The configuration looked perfectly fine in the SPH. When I launched it however... uhh... just take a look. I took the old version and attached new parasitic fighters, and it came out fine that time, so no harm done. Please post your kraken moments here! btw, if there is a preexisting thread like this somewhere else, feel free to point it out, and close/merge this thread. I thought there would be, but all the kraken threads I found through search (and also by looking through about 5 pages manually) were complaining about bugs. This thread is for the humor!
  8. Hi all, Loving, LOVING this game, which I purchased for Steam/Linux just a few days ago. Very happy that this is something of a work in progress, but I confess that it seems the Linux platform might be getting a little less love? Hey - there's a growing number of us out there ;0) Anyhow, that being the case or not, I've run into a *real* issue now (beyond the earlier reported graphics issue of flickering/corrupt pixels while inside the hangars, and the general great difficulty in click-selecting objects). I'm on my third restart in career mode. I've just taken on a contract to Test Heat Shield (0.625m) and the game won't recognise when I achieve the necessary requirements. In this challenge, I have to make between 1550.0m/s to 2,000m/s. Twice now I've managed to re-enter from a high orbit, and all checks except speed are green. As the craft speeds up on re-entry, I'm traveling at over 1600m/s and STILL the green tick won't appear. So I'm stuck on two contracts, unable to clear this one. I could re-start again :0/ but would like to know if there's a way I could help by maybe submitting stats or data, just in case these are things that can be ironed out? As I say, happy to accept it's under active development, but this game ain't free... ;0)
  9. If I have a vanilla game - which I do - and have a bug problem - which I don't (So it's all hypothetical) then Squad will look into the problem. If I also have a modded game - which I do - and have a bug problem - which I don't (So it's still all hypothetical) then squad will say "Not with a barge-pole mate!" and will not look into the problem. What if I have a modded game - which I do (in case you forgot) - and have a bug problem - which I don't (So even now we are still being hypothetical) and what if I ripped out all the mods from this modded game and then presented the still present (hypothetical) bug to squad, would this be touched with a barge-pole? Would the save game itself, having been tainted by mods still make it untouchable regardless of barge-pole length? Just wondering.. you know.. hypothetically.. can I de-taint a save game enough that squad will hug it and welcome it home and forgive it for getting tainted in the first place? Thoughts of the masses?
  10. Hi Everyone, just a quick update for bug reporting. We've now updated the Bug Tracker to include the console platforms to align support and issues for all platforms. I'll be updating the information page on the tracker next to make sure we give you all the right info for how to best report any issues you might have and not ask for things like logs, etc if the platform doesn't support it: The best place to discuss questions/advice and issues is, as always the forum, but when you have a bug to report please do head over to the tracker. And of course if you have any questions yell out
  11. I have encountered an issue with either LBP or the game itself, when I have a vessel in the water and I exit to space center, or I leave physics load distance, and re-enter, the ship will either spontaneously explode, disintegrate, launch itself hundreds of meters above the water or if i'm lucky, it will only lose all probe cores and cockpits rendering the vessel useless. I have found this to be an issue, not being able to properly set up fleets, or battles, having to build all of the ships I want ahead of time, and then spawning them in one by one with vessel mover, which still the craft has a good chance of not spawning over the water in one piece. I am running the game through KSP_x64.exe. Even when constructing a vanilla water vessel, if i am to leave it, then return, it too will not load properly, and will deconstruct and fly into the air, what is going on?
  12. I don't know about anyone else, but I've been having real issues with the stock fairings lately. For one thing, they don't stage with action groups. If I have a pod (or something I want to save in case of emergency) under a fairing, and my action groups look like this Abort> LES activate, Decoupler decouples, fairing jettisons. What will happen in case of emergency is this: I hit backspace Everything but the fairing jettison occurs My crew pod gets smashed against the inside of the fairing and they die. Which brings up my next point (kinda). After that, everything inside my fairing has been obliterated; my rocket is falling back down onto the space center; it lands on the grass; and... Everything but the fairing breaks and explodes. Fairings are needlessly strong. Don't you think that my launch escape system (homemade, it packs 300 Kn of thrust) should be able to crack that fairing open and carry my crew to safety? We like explosions don't we? Don't we want to see the fairing explode and crack into little pieces? This last thing is much less urgent than the first two. It'd be really cool if we had multiple textures for fairings. Stock, solid white, grey, some kind of ability to upload your own (maybe?) be able to add a flag and such. While still maintaining the ability to customize the shapes of your fairings, I'd also like to see Procedural Fairings become stock.
  13. This is NOT listed as a bug as of yet. I absolutely love this game and this bug breaks my heart because of the fact that I absolutely can't play until it's fixed. This is what happens: I spend literally 8 hours straight (I have no life) building, launching and I eventually manage to get 3 Mobile Prossesing Labs producing copious amounts of data (One in Kerbin orbit, One in Muner orbit and one on the surface of Minmus). On my return to the space center the game crashes. I then open KSP again and load the game and it loads the game with around a 8 hour rollback. I've lost all of my vessels, not just the ones already launched but the some of the save files of the actual vessels. I find that I don't even have the parts I used to build them unlocked yet. Obviously I was quite upset, so guess what? I persevered and DID IT ALL again, only this time, I managed to also land a probe on Eve. I go back to the space center and CRASH! I'm thinking "I'm all good, there's no way I just completely wasted all of that time again." I load the game up and was right back where I was before, with a half built ship and without some of the parts unlocked. My friend just reported he had the same issue. (Also on Xbox and we both have been playing on Science Mode.)
  14. Recently an annoying white spot appeared near my vessel. LIKE THIS: It causes fps drop (from ~30 to <10) The fps will back to normal when I choose not to watch it like this How to fix it
  15. I'm returning after well over a year of a pause. I quit somewhere around 1.0.3, and only recently began playing anew. I like the new features, and I'm adapting to the changes (like the A.I.R.B.R.A.K.E.S. are no longer totally OP; no longer possible to land on Kerbin directly from return trajectory from Minmus). I saw some old bugs unfixed though, and I wonder what I must be cautious about, and where can I go wild. I know: - the large decoupler is still bugged to hell. Had a launch stage fly right through the orbital stage, leaving through the front.) - the random overheating bug. Not sure where it comes from. Came to a craft mid-flight, and saw just empty space. Log showed "[everything] exploded due to overheating" - markers (craft, target position) on the rendezvous planning are still wonky as hell, vanishing at random. Possibly more so than they used to be. - VAB editor still sometimes thinks radial symmetry placement of tanks attached to hydraulic detachment mainfolds means "place all tanks around the current mainfold" instead of "attach tanks to remaining mainfolds" but... - is the Klaw still a Kraken-bait? - Do I still need to fear the large service bay? - do engines throttle to near zilch while ISRU is running? - does mining+ISRU still deplete asteroids at staggering pace while all fuel tanks are full and a little fuel is drawn (e.g. by fuel cell) - do jet engines still have that funny center of mass placement? How is it with the new engines? - when docking, does the target appear in the navball in the docking port direction from the root part, and not from the "control from here" docking port? Also: the lab used to return the experiment after processing it into data. Is that still the case, or does lab-processed experiments vanish permanently?
  16. When I load up a Craft, the camera glitches out, it gets stuck and I can't leave the craft or switch craft, I have to Alt+Tab out of KSP and close the game, please help I am planning to do a new series on Youtube and I cant do it with this glitch
  17. I'm trying to make a HUGE Nuke on Xbox One and I'm attaching a bunch of rockets onto the base rocket in the middle, but everytime I try to go to the launch pad to try to take off all the parts start flying EVERYWHERE while staying attached, and they're basically no clipping through my ship and I can't take off because when I start the engine all of the parts That are flying everywhere start and my ship spontaneously combusts into a huge explosion. Please help!
  18. KSP Version: Version 1.1.3 , patched via patcher today at 22:39 CET, OS: Windows 7 64-bit What Happens: Cannot purchase nor place researched parts Mods / Add-Ons: All Stock Steps to Replicate: 1) Start a new game 2) purchase the parts at the R&D Centre 3) go to construct first rocket 4) newly purchased parts still need to be purchased at R&D centre 5) Also cannot place a normal rocket engine underneath the first tank properly, doesn't snap into place, only upside down... Result: Literally cannot play the game this way, can't build anything
  19. Ok. If this turns out to be useless I'll delete. I'll be erasing the already fixed bugs from the list (Feel free to add more). Edit: I've only found about about the Bug Reporter now, didn't know I do anything there but to see which bugs have already been addressed. So I'll be reporting these bugs from the list there as well. -Unable to target a survey/observation mission marker from the Map View mode. When I click over the marker a small blank window pops up (also dropping my frames down to somewhat close to 5FPS until I close the window). This same window should have a button called "Activate Navigation" so I could see the survey place from the NavBall -Cannot change Damper and Spring values of landing gears like in the PC version - It doesn't show up when I open the landing gear settings window in the editor (Bug?) -When I build crafts with the landing gears connected to an aerodynamic part or a girder strut and try launching it, as soon as the game loads on the runway the landing gear wheels are kind of stuck into the ground and start jumping in place (the wheel stress bar also keeps jumping as if it was hitting the ground constantly). The same thing happens when these same wheel get in contact with the terrain (I tried dropping the craft from a small height with the Launch Stability Enhancer, but as soon as the wheels touch the ground this glitch happens) -Cannot see the "Gear blocked Yes/No" indicator when opening the context menu on the landing gears. -Sometimes I cannot close a opened context menu nor can open others, forcing me to reload the game. This happened yesterday, I opened the context menu from the air intake from my craft and couldn't close it by pressing B, nor could I open other's parts context menus. -FPS drop with Dynawing Final Approach Scenario and Dynawing Reentry Scenario (Seriously needs a fix on these FPS drops - I've bought KSP on console because my PC wouldn't run it very well. And then I have FPS drops (Noticeable Drops!) on the Xbox as well...). -Tutorial mission popup's always take me off the craft controls. This is a problem in tutorials which involves orbiting maneuvers. As I'm trying to cut throttle to stop a burn the bloody menu pops up, forcing me to have to switch back to ship controls first so I can then cut the burn (it normally makes my burns go past the line, forcing me to burn retrograde (or the opposite) to fix it). -Crafts falling into the ground and exploding when loading a quicksave on the runway -Unable to switch steerable landing gear control to trigger button. I wish you could set the steer axis to the trigger as you can do with Yaw controls when activating Advanced Flight Mode (<Modifier> + <Y>)
  20. Just to be clear, I'm not ranting here, just speaking for me and my fellow console players. First off, congratulations to Squad and Flying Tiger for porting this amazing game to consoles. Of course some bugs were to be expected. My only issue is the lack of response we've gotten as to when we can expect fixes. I'm sure you guys are super busy, especially considering that you're actively hiring at the moment. We would just love to see something along the lines of "Hey guys, we have acknowledged these issues and we're sorting them out asap. You can expect to see a fix in the next few days" or something along those lines. I live and breathe KSP and I personally, am unable to play on the PC, so this is gut wrenching for me. I can handle a few bugs here and there but we have a game breaker on both Xbox one and PS4. We would just like a little peace of mind knowing that we haven't been forgotten and knowing that we won't have to sit here twiddling our thumbs waiting on a fix for our purchase. I feel that the $40 we spent on this game at least merits some response here and there. Don't get me wrong, I'm no naysayer asking for my money back, just a (very) dedicated gamer waiting on my fix.
  21. I replied to a post a little while ago with this and I figured it might help if we all have a discussion to narrow down the root of the game breaking bugs. Please state your console followed by the full details leading up to your crash/loss of data. Here's my experience on Xbox One: Start a game, get multiple vessels in action (as in orbit, landings, and I'm pretty sure the MPLs might be playing a part in this), make sure you've got some debris from spent fuel tanks in orbit (might play a part in this) and then time warp. "Works" for me everytime. The game will crash, you re-open it and you are then reverted to an extremely earlier state. After that, it will continue to crash and it will always revert to the same state. Has anyone experienced this issue WITHOUT deploying any MPLs? This might help narrow it down.
  22. Read thread reply. Behold, my creation for eve. Album Pictures not in the right order, sorry. Now pay attention to this picture. I put the old opening posts content into code. It's content are no longer of importance because I found a workaround and I nailed down the issues at hand in specific in the reply to my own thread. But just in case you want to read the original thread, it's still visible. My constructive criticism still stands, so please read the reply to the thread. All the ladders leading up to the top where the capsule is work and the Kerbal can get up, except for the one nearest to the ground. My estimation is that it required about 90 minutes of using the "Move : Tool" in the VAB just to get the ladders right. "Right" meaning as far as I could get them right. And with 90 minutes I mean extensive testing under eves gravity and hyperediting. It's quite a bit more time then I needed to build the rocket itself (excluding landing system etc) That says something, don't you think? In the picture the Kerbal is actually falling (visible by the surface speed reading 5.3m/s on the altimeter). It got up 2 more steps. As far as the top of his helmet touching the height of the ladders casing and then falls down. "Move Tooling" the ladder forward, backward, or rotating it in the VAB does not work. You might think it's because the lander is on a slope. I already rotated the ladder in several directions, and it's leaning forward against gravity despite the slope, because as you can see the ladder itself is angled. Now, this thread is a little bit of a ask for help kind off thing. Anybody knows about a way to deal with this? Before you make suggestions about reworking the whole landing design. It must land on Extra large landing gears. In the full picture album you see theres a small glider attached to the underside. Only the length of the extra large landing gear allows it to fit underneath. I can't lower the landing gear after releasing the glider from the underside, because in KSP when you retract the gear the wheel brake and friction just cease and the rocket starts to move over the slope. This thread is about a ladder bug, the other one is why friction and brake effects cease when you retract your gear. Does the rubber of the gear wheels just turn into yelly or something? The result is that the lander picks up speed as the gear retracts and then tumbles over when it is fully retracted and anchors itself to the ground. Gear turns into yelly when your press to retract them, no matter your gear friction or brake power settings. So the gear must remain extended. Meaning there is some height to be gained from the ground and a ladder is needed to get there. The lander is intended to land on some kind of slope, because it's supposed to land on eves 7500m peak. So I can't retract them, meaning I need a ladder system. I can't make a ladder to the fairing base where the gear is attached to, because that would get in the way of the fairing, causing alot of explosions when I jettison the lower fairing that houses the glider, so that to is not a option. This is not the main fairing but the lower one, you see it being jetissoned on the 7th (7/8) picture in the album (see link above) I can't remove the fairing, it's not just for aesthetics, because it is supplying actual construction strength necessary to fit a rocket underneath without the whole shebang flexing into pieces. The only option I can think off is the ladder to and from one of the landing gears, but no matter how I position it, the kerbal falls off it 3/4 way to the top. I hope Squad sees importance in fixing landing gears that become banana peels when retracting and ladders you fall off and must be placed with pixel accuracy especially under greater gravity. I hope Squad does this and further ensures their game is actually working in perfect order. Programming is not my profession, I have no idea how difficult it is to fix bugs. Also I'm sure alot of bugs have been fixed already, it just seems that the ladder bug is a very old one and never got really fixed. But in contrast to adding a new Unity 5 engine, adding a heating and aerodynamic system makes fixing a ladder bug look like peanuts. I hope I made myself clear. I put hours into this lander "HOURS", and I'm optimistic about finding a workaround in the time being, I just wished I didn't had to. If anyone is willing to advice me on getting to make my ladder workaround I'd be really glad to hear him/her out. EDIT: You could suggest landing legs instead of gears. They're not tall enough to hold the glider underneath. And I would need 16 of them because less means they would brake on landing impact. And then there would be no room for the glider to manoeuvre from it's jettison position. I could launch the glider seperately to that location, but that defeats my wish of landing them both together. I already tried attaching the glider to the sides with some intuitive collection of girders and beams, but that also leads to instable aerodynamic disasters. I'm not saying there is no alternative to attaching the ladder to the landing gear. I'm just explaining the critical challenge, summing up what I already thought about and tried to implement, so you may be better able to look for the right thing to suggest. If I can't get help with this design because nothing may eventually allow a solution then this thread is basically a big RANT. It's kinda imbecilic to play a game that fails so that you lose not just hours but I'd guess a full day of your life building and testing to find out you can throw your creation into the trash because the game suffers from a bug that has never been fixed since V0.21 or lower. Sorry for using the word "failed" I'm just angry. KSP is the best thing that happened for wnthusiasts like you and me. But these are things that remind me how punishing this game can be, and it shouldn't be. The glitchyness of ladders is as old as their introduction. Possibly because of the few places you'll need them. Enough is enough squad! This deserves priority attention.
  23. This is the thermal image of my station in minmus orbit The radiator is overheating itself to arount 950K, and none of my vessel part is generating heat. Why !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????????
  24. So when ever i use any sort of wheels when i launch a spaceplane the wheels just go crazy and get fling all over the place
  25. Hi there. I was looking for help with the graphics on KSP. When I first open a new game everything seems to work fine, but after entering SPH or VPH hanger my background dissapears after exiting building. I am running without mods atm, and changing settings in the graphics menu doesn't seem to help.When I first installed the game this wasn't an issue, but after one of the latest updates it doesn't work. can anybody suggest a solution, I love this game but not being able to see the ground is ruining my game . I am Running AMD FX - 4130 Quad Core Processor 3.8Ghz 16GB Ram AMD Radeon R9 200 series Graphics Card
