    How to edit crews in the persistence file?

    I found out that KSP decided my Dunian rover was debris, and for some reason, it won't let me select it from the map view. My attempts to edit it's decoupler into a command pod don't seem to be working. Fortunately, I have the lander I used to put it down nearby. My plan was to fly it over to my rover, and then switch focus to use the rover. Unfortunately, the lander has been left with no crew.

    Can I edit the persistence file to place crew in the lander, and if I can, how?

    not sure if this will work, but look for the ship in the persistent file and change this....

    ORBIT
    {
    SMA = -8.61214074197094
    ECC = 1003570559.6185
    INC = 177.460634799987
    LPE = 309.466916193403
    LAN = 93.0223028879337
    MNA = 1247652393.04882
    EPH = 6981964.03958007
    REF = 0
    OBJ = 1 <<<< to 0

    I think the '1' flags it as debris .... change to 0 and I think it will become selectable again
    I havent tried it , so let us know.

    If you have an existing flight with crew in it, look at how the crew is assigned to it. Copy that, put it in the same way in the craft you want to add crew to, and change the names.

    I can confirm crusaderuk's advice, we're rolling!
    Is it safe to delete a decoupler attached to the top of my DEMV? It's rather ugly.
