  1. I happen to be making a movie for my science project on "The Origins of Us". I want to explain the formation of our solar system, how the moon was formed, how asteroids with water ice brought liquid water to earth, etc. However, I don't really know how to convey this information to the audience through a Kerbal movie without a narration (because, you know, narration+kerbal movie = no). So, I kind of needed help with that. Also, i need mission ideas. I have filmed my moon mission, where the astronauts find out that the rock in the moon is similar to the rock on Kerbin. But for the rest, I really don't know. I'mplanning on a mission to Laythe, but again, I don't know how to convey the facts and knowlege to the audience without it being to vague. Also, Kerbal voices. I need help with those too. Thanks UPDATE Just finished my first scene, what do you think?
  2. Hello, I am wondering what the most very basic setup for a wheel is - no suspension, no steering, just a free-rolling axel type thing. Currently I have like so in Unity: Click for zoom. Each wheel pivot object has a sphere collider. And the config: PART { name = Tantavan module = Part author = Tantares MODEL { model = Tantares/Parts/VAN/van } scale = 1.0 rescaleFactor = 1.0 node_stack_bottom = 0.0, -0.0, 0.0, 0.0, -1.0, 0.0, 1 node_stack_top = 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 0.0, 1 bulkheadProfiles = size1 attachRules = 1,0,1,1,0 CoPOffset = 0.0, 0.5, 0.0 CoLOffset = 0.0, -0.35, 0.0 CenterOfBuoyancy = 0.0, 0.5, 0.0 CenterOfDisplacement = 0.0, -0.3, 0.0 buoyancy = 1.5 buoyancyUseSine = False TechRequired = flightControl entryCost = 3500 cost = 1000 category = Pods subcategory = 0 title = VAN manufacturer = VAN MAKERSD description = WE MaDE THIS VAMN tags = VANS mass = 2 dragModelType = default maximum_drag = 0.20 minimum_drag = 0.15 angularDrag = 2 crashTolerance = 20 maxTemp = 3400 skinMaxTemp = 3400 heatConductivity = 0.1 thermalMassModifier = 1.0 vesselType = Ship CrewCapacity = 3 MODULE { name = ModuleCommand minimumCrew = 1 } MODULE { name = ModuleSAS } MODULE { name = ModuleReactionWheel PitchTorque = 1.5 YawTorque = 1.5 RollTorque = 1.5 RESOURCE { name = ElectricCharge rate = 0.075 } } MODULE { name = ModuleScienceExperiment experimentID = crewReport experimentActionName = Crew Report resetActionName = Discard Crew Report reviewActionName = Review Report useStaging = False useActionGroups = True hideUIwhenUnavailable = True rerunnable = True xmitDataScalar = 1.0 } MODULE { name = ModuleScienceContainer reviewActionName = Review Stored Data storeActionName = Store Experiments evaOnlyStorage = True storageRange = 2.0 } RESOURCE { name = ElectricCharge amount = 100 maxAmount = 100 } MODULE { name = ModuleWheelBase wheelColliderTransformName = WheelBase1 wheelTransformName = WheelBase1 wheelType = MOTORIZED // setting this to true will override the radius and center parameters FitWheelColliderToMesh = True TooltipTitle = Rover Wheel TooltipPrimaryField = Motorized } MODULE { name = ModuleWheelBase wheelColliderTransformName = WheelBase2 wheelTransformName = WheelBase1 wheelType = MOTORIZED // setting this to true will override the radius and center parameters FitWheelColliderToMesh = True TooltipTitle = Rover Wheel TooltipPrimaryField = Motorized } MODULE { name = ModuleWheelBase wheelColliderTransformName = WheelBase3 wheelTransformName = WheelBase1 wheelType = MOTORIZED // setting this to true will override the radius and center parameters FitWheelColliderToMesh = True TooltipTitle = Rover Wheel TooltipPrimaryField = Motorized } MODULE { name = ModuleWheelBase wheelColliderTransformName = WheelBase4 wheelTransformName = WheelBase1 wheelType = MOTORIZED // setting this to true will override the radius and center parameters FitWheelColliderToMesh = True TooltipTitle = Rover Wheel TooltipPrimaryField = Motorized } } Unfortunately, in-game it does not work at all. The van is stuck in place and doesn't move, the wheels also do not spin at all. (I attached some thruster to push and try to get it rolling on the wheels). I am only familiar with two current mods and modders who do wheels (There are probably a lot more, but off from the top of my head I cannot think of any). @Angel-125 @RoverDude @Shadowmage ( I think? ) Sorry to tag you guys and drag in - but, the secret knowledge is elusive and I don't think many community members who know this are still around Can I put a powerful bounty here? If somebody helps me learn to do this, I will put out a Lunokhod!
  3. I loaded ksp, clicked load, it is in loading screen for 20 mins. Nothing happens. Anyone know why?
  4. Hello All, Ok, I am very, very new to the forum, mostly lurked and read various threads. Had to start commenting on some very good content however, so needed an account. I have also thought about the Mods out there and especially Kopernicus, I have looked at the various Star Systems available and have been very surprises that something I have not seen available. So I would like to learn how to use Kopernicus to create this Star Systems and once complete share it with everyone. But first I need help, can any who can or are willing point me in the direction of tutorials (on or off the Forum) that will allow be to understand and learn how to use Kopernicus to fulfil my goal. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. I would also update this post with a list of the recommended tutorial as well. [If this is in the wrong place, again any advice would be appreciated]
  5. I have downloaded mechjeb, unzipped it, put in the gamedata folder, ran the fame, but mechjeb did not show up. I saw ksp load mechjeb in the loading screen, but nothing shows up. Just stock ksp. Please help. It would be very helpful.
  6. hi,im looking for help using ksp coordinates. i need to know how to find the coordinates of a place i am not at so i can use the teleporting feature of hyperedit. any help is greatly appreciated
  7. I'm looking for some information on how to use the part upgrade feature. Mechjeb for example does it but I guess this is a feature of himself. But I red that it is possible in ksp now and I'd really like to know how. Okay to get propper help I should propper describe what I want to do: - I want to use the stock survey scanner and add scansat ability to it. To do so I don't want to just copy it and spread the copies over the techtree but I want to add upgrades to it to be unlocked. So basically move the "original" scanner to the place of the radar sensor of scansat, delete its module for resource scanning and then have it upgraded further down the tree with said module and the other two scansat provides. It's all nice and good and when I just make copies it works but ... errr ... there is this cool feature of partupgrades and I'd love to use it. cheers
  8. Hello guys, im using windows 10 64bit pro, I h ave 2x4GB of dual channel Kingston 1666Mhz RAM. My PC Specs: CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4 Ghz GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6870 1GB GDDR5 256bit by PowerColor RAM: 2x 4GB Dual-Channel Kingston 1666Mhz RAM sticks.(DDR3) Hard Drive: SATA 2 only, Motherboard: Gigabyte 78LMT-S2 supporting up to 16GB of DDR3 ram. My game is pretty stable, i use like close to circa 40 mods. The game never crashed at all, tho I noticed that I get very low fps and a bit of lag when I have 2 separate ships, a battleship consisting of 330 parts, with a tiny bomber.. bla bla bla... at the same time around 12 km proximity. What can I do in order to increase smoothness, performance?
  9. This may be a stupid question, but how do I post a status update?
  10. I need help because ksp is very slow. I made the setting minimum but I am still getting a lot of lag please help.

  11. My suggestion is for a future update, the code be rewritten to run much faster, and thus speed up the game
  12. I just experienced an error that is making it almost IMPOSSIBLE to play KSP 1.2.0. When I loaded ksp, and loaded a gamesave, and went into the vab or sph, all the parts disappeared! If I load an existing craft, the menu showing all the crafts remains, and I have to press cancel. if I load another craft, it appears along with the previous one! Here is the log
  13. I am working on a planet pack and I need to re-texture planets. Can anyone explain how to do this
  14. I ever since i installed KSP on my new computer i have been having errors and bugs like solar and heat panels exploding on launch and 1min long repeating error messages in the console when i crash a craft lagging my game, when i installed the patcher today and i tried to fix my game i received two error messages and the two loading bars stayed at 0% an it instantly said press OK to exit, after two CMD windows came up and game me ownership over all the files in my directory(wich i already owned but ok) and then it closed, i would like to know if that is whats supposed to happen or if something went wrong. Also i now have basically every mod made for 1.2.2 that does not add planets, and this is at the same time as trying to patch the game. i do not use Steam edition
  15. Hi guys, So I saw this contract and it would gave me a lot of money, so i accepted it. The agency wanted me to make a satellite and send into a specific orbit around the mun. I am now orbiting the mun but the inclination is terrible. How can I change it? I tried Normal and Antinormal maneuver nodes but none of them worked. Delta V=2251m/s Bye for now. EDIT: Lol nope i figured it out.
  16. Had a question about small craft in orbit. Trying to design a craft to land on Moho so I am trying to keep it considerably small and compact. Using a Mk1 lander can and putting most of the fuel tanks, batteries, etc. inside the can to limit physical size. The problem arises when I try to use RCS thrusters for any type of docking or maneuvering the craft literally goes crazy, and all the RCS thrusters are firing to keep it steady. I've basically done everything in the game unmodded, never had an issue with larger craft and docking, maneuvering etc. but have issues when I go small. Also have issues with it when I build HECS2 probes that are compact. I try to mess with the reaction wheels, turning them off and what not, but then lose the ability to easily dock and what not, should I just put a separate reaction wheel on the craft and turn the reaction wheels off of the lander can?
  17. I pushed the sliders to the max but it isn't enough to satisfy me.... I want more wobble! Can it be done? How?
  18. this is for how-to's and things, If you want to help or want help, please go here.
  19. I've been designing this SSTO to go to Minmus for the past few days, and I've encountered a problem that I just can't seem to solve. Even with the center of lift behind the center of mass, the plane flips over upon liftoff like the COm is in front of the COL. Does anyone know what's going on? I've tried everything and it doesn't seem to work. Craft File: Aircraft Mrk_ 2.craft?dl=0 Mods needed: OPT Space Plane Parts
  20. So I am playing with KOS and it's pretty hard to find some up to date tutorials (the documentation on github is fine! But Finding scripts that work or people willing to help isn't that easy) so I thought I'll just publish stuff I do and did here. Maybe someone else is just looking for a bump in the right direction or my future me thinks "how did I do that the last time?!". I'm a noob and teaching that stuff to myself is a whole new experience and I enjoy it. So this thread is where I'll dump stuff that works - maybe someone finds it usefull maybe someone posts something usefull. Have fun! Mods I used (wich are needed for the .craft files to load): - KOS (obviously) - MechJeb Crafts: 1. TKO (Tourists Kerbin Orbit) A rocket to bring 2 tourists into orbit and safely back to kerbin. picture: .craft file (just copy and paste into a editor and save as *.craft in saves/ships/VAB/*.craft) .ks file (script) (just copy and paste into a editor and save as *.ks in kerbal space program/ships/script/*.ks) It's a basic orbit script wich works nicely, has documentation and prints some stuff into your kos-terminal. 2. TKO (Tourist Knockout Suborbit) A rocket to bring a tourist to space and knock him out before bringing him back to the surface. picture: .craft file (just copy and paste into a editor and save as *.craft in saves/ships/VAB/*.craft) .ks file (script) (just copy and paste into a editor and save as *.ks in kerbal space program/ships/script/*.ks) This is as simple as it gets, no ifs, no loops - just a line of commands.
  21. Planes not flying right? I can help turn your Christmas Bullet into a Spitfire. Post a screenshot with all three SPH indicators on (like below) as well as a short description of what it's doing or not doing, and what you want it to do. I'll read it over and do my best to offer some tips and tricks to get it flying purrrrrfect. Some other examples of my planes:
  22. I am playing KSP with a bunch of mods. the game was running fine and then i had a game crash. i had to re validate, update my drivers and restart my computer to be able to get KSP to load again. when it did finally load and i tried to launch a plane from my hangar but i was unable to lift off as my speed couldn't go above 13m/s. i know it was working before because i had no problem gaining speed and flying with the exact same plane i was using. i thought it could just be the liquid engines but when i loaded up my rocket fueled plane it had the same effect. i could not gain speed its as if the physics had been changed by a mod or something was affecting the atmosphere. i tried deleting my physics file and re validating but that didn't fix it either. i opened the console config with shift F12 or w/e it is and looked up the default values online and the numbers were the same? any ideas on what could be causing these physic issues? or mods that might tamper with physics? i dont have the real physics mod installed thanks
  23. So I started a thread over in the Add-On Discussion forum and I am realizing that it might have been better to ask here if I want some responses from actual plugin developers, so here is the short version: Idea: A mod that creates a UI window with the tech tree in it similar to how it appears in the R&D building, but you are able to move parts around between different nodes, you can then save the layout and it will generate a MM patch file that will change the techRequired for the parts to the nodes you put them in, or just a log file that you could use to make a MM patch. For a more detailed description and reason why i think this is such a good idea please check out the thread linked above. The Question: Just how feasible is this? Would this be something that would be fairly easy to get working or would this be quite difficult? I have zero C# experience and my C++ experience is limited to two classes in high school almost 9 years ago, so while I have a high level conceptual idea of how it would work I don't actually know how to go about doing it. If someone thinks this is just a swell idea and wants to try writing it themselves then by all means please do!!
  24. Good afternoon all, Im coming across and issue with docking. I am unable to dock 2 clamp-o-tron together. they are both the same size. I recently added KJR due to the mass and shape of my station and this will be the third time docking since adding the mod. no issues either previous time. Is there a bug that appears with this mod some times? Do the ports need to be "top to top" and ive just been really lucky with hitting it each time?(station has a total of 6 attachments, this will be 7). by top to top i mean (using nav ball as an example) North to north?. Here is a screen shot for proof of size and lack of magnetism. Should i roll my ship? is my build causing issue? any advice would be great! thanks.
  25. How i can win last badge of KSP? i need help.Sorry for bad english but i dont think a made a error in it... Problem solved you just need collect all shiny badges for it.
