  1. Just some thing I'd like to see. Recently I've been playing more with solid. I've been trying to fly more missions with small solid motors. Like using kicker motors to insert small satellites. It's kind of a pain with the control nodes. It would be really nice to be able to set the dv of the burn and then be able to change the direction of the vector with out changing the magnitude. It would make it much easier to plan your flight path with fixed size motors to make the corrections. So you would have a special type of node. You would need one control where you could draw out the length of the vector. Then instead of three fixed arms to change the different components you would have three handles where you could rotate that vector. You would also to be able to slide the node along the path as you can now. It would these burns easier. Are there any mods like this? Lee

    How do I make it non private so that you or any one can reed it? Lee

    Sorry to be slow replying I had to drive back and forth to Austin yesterday. Fond the Log file or at least I think this is what you want. https://www.dropbox.com/pri/get/output_log.txt?_subject_uid=669882255&w=AACyfD2WQQ3iRvpjLC1TzNqLUXhalYzJxhd954_JxXjZXg I have not used drop box before. hopefully that worked. As I said those errors in MM pop up and then it just freezes in the load. I wish I could be more helpful. And I thank you for your patience with me. Lee

    I'm not sure what to post. It's not booting so It's not generating a crash file or any thing like that. I thought I'd fond the problem. I had not installed a texture for real solar system. I have now installed 2048 but it still locks up at the same point in loading. Lee

    I tried asking this in the TestFlight thread but it doesn't seem very active. Maybe you can help me here. I'm trying to instal a RO RP-0 in 1.13 It's freezing part way through loading. I'm getting an error: "ModuleManager: 14559 patches applied, found 6 errors 6 errors related to GameData/RealismOverhaul/TestFlightRnD.cfg" RealismOverhaul-v11.3 TestFlightCore-1.7.1.0.beta-1 This is the TestFlightRnD.cfg file: // Set the global TF RnD settings TFRNDSETTINGS { updateFrequency = 86400 TEAM { points = 10.0 costFactor = 1 } TEAM { points = 12.5 costFactor = 1.5 } TEAM { points = 15.0 costFactor = 2 } } // After pass: fix up RnD @PART[*]:HAS[@MODULE[TestFlightCore]]:AFTER[zTestFlight] { @MODULE[TestFlightCore],* { rndMaxData = 2500 rndCost = #$../entryCost$ @rndCost *= 0.00001 @rndCost += 0.15 tmp = #$../entryCost$ @tmp != 0.25 rndRate = 6 @rndRate /= #$tmp$ !tmp = DEL } } All required mods by RO and RP-o installed. I've tried a couple of times. At first I tried with the most current mods. Then I tried again by going back and trying to find versions of all mods compatible with 1.13 thinking that there might be a loss of compatibility with newer mods for 1.22 but I'm still locking up with listing 6 errors in the cfg file for TestFlight. I'd like to try to play this the RP-0 progression and seem to be stuck in 1.13 for that. Help would be appreciated. Lee

  7. Engine Heating

    I'm playing with a mod, Better then starting manned, It has an engine prone to over heating but I've seen this else where as well. How is engine heating calculated? What contributes to it or mitigates it. I've had problems with procedural engines as well. The solid motor in it gives me fits some times. Lee
  8. 1.0 down load

    No joy with the patcher but down loading the file directly worked. Thanks. Lee
  9. 1.0 down load

    I'm having trouble updating to 1.0. I tried to do it with the patcher but it just sticks and locks up. Am I going about this the wrong way? Lee
  10. That didn't work. I'll try again. How do you update to 1.0? The patcher just locks up and sticks. Am I trying to do this wrong? Lee
  11. I'm having trouble down loading the up grade. I click on the patcher but I get a message saying "Squad Patcher Busy, Hold on we're getting set up." I've tried being patent but it just sticks there. I've tried turning off E-set. Am I doing some thing wrong? Lee
  12. I just started playing RO. Question/suggestion, Is their any way to vent/dump fuel when my engine fails. If I'm going to deal with these failure modes it would be nice to have some chance of recovering the rocket from an early shut down. Just for the record we do have such a system on our sounding rocket and have used it on several early aborts allowing us to dump the tanks once the main canopy is deployed so that we are not over weight on landing.

  13. [1.1.2] Realism Overhaul v11.0.0 May 8

    So I just built my self a RO copy of KSP. I included most of the suggested mods and some others. With I little tinkering I seem to have it running stably. Thing is my rockets keep malfunctioning. I'm not sure if it's the base RO or if it's one of the mods. To be clear I don't think it's a bug. It's like their are built in malfunction modes. Some times the engine does not light. Some times it loses power part way through, or goes out, or explodes. I guess that's realistic but it's just turned up way too high. I literally can't get it to fly. Is there a place that I can turn this down a notch, so that say 1 in 5 rockets would actually function? Lee
  14. I just installed CKAN on a .90 windows 32 program. I'm getting an error on start up of CKAN. Microsoft .net framework Unhandled exception has occurer in your application.... The remote server returned an error: (401) Unauthorized If I hit continue the program does come up but there does not seem to be a list of mods or any thing. I don't know if it's the error or if I just don't know how to use it. Help? Lee
  15. So I've started messing with my game. I made a copy of it in another folder and started trying to tinker with it. I play with a lot of mods and they aren't really fitting together well in terms of when parts were being introduced in the tech tree and when different contracts are popping up. So I've been trying to figure out how to shuffle things around to different locations and playing with a probe first arrangement. I've also been looking at the balance of different parts. Just tinkering. The question. Looking at the CFG files for the engines, is there a way to control their restart capability? Basically I was looking at ways to distinguish first stage booster engines and upper stage engines. It's not trivial to make an engine that can restart in flight at zero gravity. It was a significant innovation in tank and engine design. Not all engines are capable of multiple restarts. Is their a way to set an engine so that it can be started on the launch pad or while under positive acceleration but then not restarted once it has been shut down? Why? Well it kind of separates the later upper stage engines higher in the tree. You can still do things earlier in the game with small solid fuel upper stages which is historically accurate in terms of the early satellite launches. Even the second stage of the titan Gemini had to be started while the first stage was still running to give it positive g's. It would just fit in better with my probe first tree that I'm playing with. Lee
