  1. Assuming you aren't getting that exception every time you launch the CKAN, running the Clean and Re-install process should get your missing mods back in control.
  2. We're all very hopeful that this release will be relatively bug-free! Massive thanks to @HebaruSanand @DasSkelett for smashing those bugs so rapidly! And now the tag feature is properly considered a full-fledged feature! I hope y'all are enjoying it!
  3. Our standard process is to build our executables on Linux, which makes any infection by a Windows-focused virus extremely unlikely. This was a massive load of work, which I think I failed to adequately praise in my release notice.
  4. Beetlecat, can you run ckan.exe ksp list on a command line?
  5. Can you post the full error info? Run it from Powershell to stop it disappearing.

Dark system themes should finally be handled correctly! Adjusting a modpack before you export it will be a great feature for people that want to share just the vital mods! LinuxConfAu 2020 in the Gold Coast earlier this month saw not one, but two talks referencing KSP-CKAN, [one by @techman83](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvcz-BsUIWg), and one by my wife and I (I'll leave finding that one as an exercise for the readers). It was absolutely fabulous to finally meet @techman83 face-to-face and get to know him better after six years of working together on KSP-CKAN!

We are always happy to see new contributors submitting code, and don't feel like you have to do it all by yourself. We're a very helpful team. If you're wondering why MacOS now defaults to the consoleui, it's because Apple have dropped support for 32-bit graphics, and our graphical ui uses the Winforms toolset which has not been ported to 64-bit, and likely never will. Discussions for a new UI using a more modern toolset are ongoing. The CKAN Discord has been very popular, and is certainly proving very useful for the Dev team. Feel free to hit us up there for questions, though the primary locations for Bug Reports and Metadata Issues remains GitHub. My Twitch streaming has been a bit off the air since moving my home office around. My microphone seems to have stopped working, and I need to sort it out, but I'll be back on sometime, playing KSP (usually fairly badly!). If anyone has questions about the CKAN client and how to make the best use of it, feel free to jump on my stream and ask, and I can demonstrate live! I am as always humbled and inordinately grateful for the excellent team we have working on the CKAN. @HebaruSan, @DasSkelett, @Olympic1, and the incomparable master of infrastructure @techman83 continue their fabulous work!
  8. Yeah, it would be nice if Squad could bump the priority of the splash screen display.
  9. Or even better, to have it operate with different SAS levels as the relevant tech nodes are unlocked.
  10. Unfortunately, we can't add the RO Patches pack to the CKAN repo the way it is set up at the moment. It is relying on overwriting the Tundra Exploration decals files, and the CKAN client will not overwrite one mod's files with another's. Is it possible to use a ModuleManager patch to use distinct files instead? Also, the AVC .version file for the patch is restricting it to just KSP 1.6.1. If there's no need to update the patches for future RO versions, it might be better to make the patch compatibility match the Tundra Exploration version it is suited for rather than the current RO. That way, if/when RO is updated to support 1.7.x, the patch won't need a compatibility version bump
