  1. I'm running into the same problems that seem to lace this thread. I'm in the process of building a base on Munmus and everything is jumping up on physics load. I can live with that. I've linked four rather heavy landers together using hoses. On physics load everything jumps up. I've noticed that the landers twist on the way up and move around a lot when they settle. The direction of twist looks like the hoses are all have tension on them that tries to balance out. I'd record a video, but I think I can show it with two pictures. https://imgur.com/a/SrwoEMr In the first you can see I have
  2. Brave and tenacious??? probably not, more like determined and masochistic... So I was running into the same "launch pad select window not opening" problem everyone else is, then I saw that the (in need of testing) fixes were on github I dove in. I downloaded the master branch and replaced my GameData\ExtraplanetaryLaunchpads with Extraplanetary-Launchpads-master.zip\Extraplanetary-Launchpads-master\GameData\ExtraplanetaryLaunchpads and gave it a shot. The smelter, workshop, and recycler aren't showing up in the VAB and my craft that have those parts aren't loading. Ok, I noti
  3. Not trying to be troublesome, but... The update included old versions of CommunityResourcePack, PatchManager, and TweakScale.
  4. I just got up to building my beamed power network and ran into this same issue. I tried replacing my WarpPlugin directory in gamedata with the one from 1.20.5, but my relays are still not relaying. bratimm, did you revert the WarpPlugin directory alone? or did you remove and install everything that's in the 1.20.5 zip file?
  5. O_o Dev build you say.... <furiously mousing to download page>
  6. Glad to hear you're working on this. As a short term fix, could you split out background EC processing and have that disable-able in the difficulty screen? (That way everything else would still function and you'd only be disabling the function that's at issue)
  7. Still trying to work around this issue. I've been using TAC LS since Scott Manley did his video on Explode-o-Matic staging. It's one of the first mods I add when I re-do my build. I specifically use it in conjunction with things like Remote Tech & Scan Sat to increase difficulty. Unfortunately, KSPIE is also one of those. Although it'll work, I'd really rather not just disable background processing. That disables food, water, oxygen & waste processing as well. Having the mod just for the parts and making it look like it's working seems kind of pointless. The vessels I'm having tro
  8. Answering my own questions... Still no idea on what's going on with the 3 hour reset of absorbtion percentage and moisture modifier. It doesn't seem to effect anything, so I'm ignoring it. After some experimentation I can confirm that I'm getting a 50% improvement overall by having seven times as many radiators and what's needed. The numbers shown in the pics I posted show the results. It may look funky, but they're not that costly, so I'll be putting extra radiators on everything. Actinides... I forgot about Actinides. Or, more accurately, I never realized the huge effect th
  9. How about an explanation of what you were trying to do and what you were seeing? In your first two pics the only difference I see between the things you could adjust is the electric priority. (set to 4 in the first, giving reasonable source temperatures, and 3 in the second, giving an astronomical value.) What did you do between the two pictures? Was is showing what we see in the first pic, then change to the second when you changed electric priority? Did it change on it's own. Did you exit the VAB/game/reboot system between the two pictures? Pictures alone are not sufficient
  10. Gotya... I see there are some larger replacement tanks that'll fit the bill. I went looking for them because I'm just getting back to being far along enough to use them and went looking. I use to like the look of the HexCans and used them often. Like this:
  11. I was noticing that HexCans are still in the parts folder. I'm running a carer game and haven't stumbled across them yet. When I went to check the part.cfg file C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Kerbal Space Program\GameData\WarpPlugin\Parts\FuelTank\RVUranium2\part.cfg it indicated: name = HexCanUraniumN module = Part author = Vaporlynx & Fractal (snip) TechRequired = none entryCost = 20000 cost = 20000 category = none subcategory = 0 title = RV Uranium Nitride Tank manufacturer = Geomax Plc. description = A resource canister containing a supply of Uranium Nitrid
  12. Hello @FreeThinker, I've been working on my issue with power drop off on my ground based beamed power reactors. Items noted: On my phased array transmitter, absorbtion percentage and moisture modifier seem to gradually climb over a three hour period, resetting to a lower value at 0:00:00 and 3:00:00 every day. Any idea why? Extra radiators seem to provide a greater differential for hot/cold baths in my thermal generators, resulting in greater power output. I that as intended? (I don't mind coughing up extra kerbucks for more radiators resulting in greater output ) Reac
  13. Hi Everybody, Some time ago I posted that I finally got beamed power figured out enough to actually start using it. I took a break from that and did an asteroid encounter for some tourists (needed the cash) When I came back, the output on my reactors was way down. Then the upgrade hit and it took a while to get everything working again. Is there something I'm not seeing that's messing with my system? (I noticed the xenon tanks were full. So I dumped them, just in case. Doing that didn't help) https://imgur.com/a/2Y0Xd For the record, I'm running KSP 1.3.1 with KSPIE 1.16.1 an
  14. Hi Everybody, I *finally* figured out beamed power enough to get something that's at least usable. Pics can be seen Here. I've included my tech tree to show what I had available at the time. I selected long IR in an attempt to maximize the range I could broadcast to from a ground base. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I wanna make things as good as possible before expanding the system beyond Kerbin/Mun/Minmus. @Maelstrom Vortex, I'd lake to thank you in particular. Your video showed me the way Tags: thermal infrared microwave beamed power phased array relay
  15. Hi Everybody, I've been playing KSP since just before career mode was added, and running KSPI & KSPIE for ages. (probably since it's inception) I've watched the tutorials multiple times and the one thing I find lacking is examples of actual ships. I've developed a several vessels and come up with some designs that I've used over and over. In my present run through I've reached the point that I'm exhausting the science available from Kerbin and it's moons, and have the tech tree up to having most of the 1000 tier completed. (I'm about to unlock fusion reactors) There have been
