  1. It's definitely appreciated, thanks for the help anyway. I think I'll end up just making new textures anyway since it seems like it's easier (at least for my limited photoshop skills) than undoing the stretching around the poles and rotating everything, etc. To answer @darwinpatrick, I want to open them up because I'm trying to update the OPM Tilt addon which tilts Urlum by 90 degrees to be similar to Uranus. Because you can't actually tilt the axis for real (kerbal only supports bodies with a axis that's straight vertical) you have to rotate the textures by 90 degrees to sort of fake it
  2. Thanks for the quick reply, though unfortunately I still haven't been able to open any of the biome maps. I've downloaded a couple other planet packs and can open those biome maps so it must be something about how OPM's are saved. I've tried GIMP with the DDS plugin, Paint.net, and DDS Viewer. Maybe I just need to bite the bullet and get Photoshop because it seems like it's the only thing that can open them. Granted, I'm a noob at all of this and just starting to dive into modding more than just .cfg files so maybe it's possible with those programs and I just don't know how to load it pro
  3. Not sure if this is the right place, apologies if it isn't. I've been working on updating Sigma's OPM Tilt for my own save (it just requires a bit of config editing to update it for current versions of Kopernicus) but I'm having difficulty opening the biome maps of bodies for some reason. All the other texture files load fine. Whenever I try to load them, the program either throws an error or just gives me a solid black image. I've used a couple of DDS loader programs but none seem to have worked. Am I just being an idiot?
  4. I've been trying to write a personal patch for KerbalAtomics that makes nuclear engines use EnrichedUranium and create DepletedFuel depending on the throttle (not a generator). I've tried this two ways but encountered a problem with each. First I tried setting DepletedFuel as a propellant with a negative ratio. This gave me the production rate I wanted but also made the engine think it was only getting 2/3 of the propellants and so would only give 2/3 the thrust. I could kludge it and just increase the thrust values to compensate but that bothers my OCD and I thought there must be a bette
  5. Ok, so I've been struggling with making a .cfg patch for the last couple hours but I'm kinda confused about adding reliability modules to engines, especially multi-mode engines. First, I'm trying to make it so there are different reliability levels for the different modes in multi-mode engines. Basically the idea is that if you use it in the standard mode it produces much less wear on the engine than during the afterburner-type mode. The packaged Kerbalism patch for KerbalAtomics gives the trimodal engines (the ones that can burn LF only or LF+Ox for more thrust) only a single reliability
  6. Small issue: the config for RLA support no longer works because it went through a name change to RLA Reborn. Just needs a quick rename in the config and then it works fine
  7. I mean, I'm totally making this up as I go Yes, there is less drag at lower pressure so...I dunno. From a purely gameplay perspective it seems ridiculous to me that on Duna you need far fewer solar cells to run at max throttle than on Kerbin, despite the greater distance of Duna. Also, thanks for the MM version @Drew Kerman. It's been forever since I did any config modding and module manager completely slipped my mind.
  8. The main problem is that the thrust on the electric prop is constant and doesn't vary with speed or altitude. It's a decent approximation of real behavior for Kerbin and Laythe, but since Duna has such low gravity, you can literally fly into orbit with the current config So I went into the configs and tweaked the numbers so that it behaves a bit more realistically.

  9. For the life of me I can't repeat this bug anymore. Even with the craft that presented issues before I restarted KSP to try to fix it but forgot that it copies over the log. I am a noob at this >_< Here's the craft file, maybe you'll have more luck repeating the bug than I have. It uses parts from RLA Stockalike (the square probe core) and Kerbal Planetary Base Systems (the square base plate). I can provide a full mod list if needed.
  10. It was already attached on the top of the ship. Dishes take up a huge amount of inventory space so I usually just slap them on the side and then move them.
  11. I've been testing and it seems to work fine on Kerbin. But when in the sphere of influence of the Mun (whether orbit or landed) I get the error. I'm currently testing on other planets. I was holding down the H key in the image, that's what makes the error pop up. EDIT: It also happens no matter which part I try to attach it to. It's the KR-7 Dish from RemoteTech. When I'm done testing with this dish, I'll try the others. https://imgur.com/mHUM2M7
  12. I've been trying to see if this has been answered before but my google-fu is failing me so far. I'm trying to attach a RemoteTech antenna to a probe and use it as a relay. The antenna has a single attach node and the attach rules in the config file allow surface attaching. But when I'm in game, I get the error 'Cannot attach: attach function is not supported on this part'. How would I go about fixing this? Do I need to add a module to the antenna config? This is in KSP version 1.0.5
  13. I love this mod and I've used it since it first came out. I know we all appreciate your continued effort in keeping it up to date A (hopefully) small feature request. Would it be possible to add a text box where players can write a summary of a Kerbal's career or mission details or something? I like the RP aspect this brings to the game but sometimes I forget the details of a particular Kerbal's adventures. it'd be neat to be able to keep track of them in-game
  14. I understand that it's frustrating when an update has bugs but I think people should try to be a bit less negative towards the devs. Some bugs are easier to solve than others which is why the 'trivial' bug fixes come a lot faster than the major issues. It's not that Squad isn't putting time into it or is ignoring the issue, there's just a lot more code that goes into making the VAB function compared to renaming a Kerbal. It can be difficult to sort through it all and isolate what the problem is. So please be patient and polite.
  15. I love the modeling and textures and everything on the RCS engines but I struggle to actually find a use for them. At best they seem to be on par with the liquid fuel engines of the same class. The 1 meter monoprop engine is basically the same performance as the LV-909 and the 2 meter engines provide comparable performance to the Poodle. Am I missing something? Is it for people who use RealFuels or something since monoprop doesn't suffer boil off the same way cryogenic fuels do? (Also I poked the devs of RemoteTech to make sure that config was added to the download since it wasn't pa
