  1. Mobile forum

    Moved thread to Kerbal Network, as it's about the forum itself and not the game.
  2. Yes. And welcome to the forums Battlejaw!
  3. Planet texture.

    Hi Kirill! It sounds like maybe you're looking for maps of the various planets in KSP? If so, this is the website I normally use for that. http://ksp.deringenieur.net/ If that's not what you're looking for, please let me know and I'll see about getting this thread moved so that the people best able to help you will see it. This doesn't really belong in Suggestions and Development, but I'm not sure where to send it yet.
  4. Add "Recent Status Updates" on Forum

    I've moved this over to Kerbal Network, as it seems like it's more about the forum than the game itself.
  5. Issue with Learjet

    Welcome to the forums Ian. Your question didn't really seem like it fit with the thread you originally posted it in, and as that thread was quite old I've gone ahead and moved your question to a new thread. I'm not sure I understand exactly what's happening in your case, but I remember being confused by the SAS function pitching my plane up slowly over time. Is it just the wings that are moving when you warp time, or is the entire plane pitching up? If it's the former, I'm afraid I don't have an answer. If it's the later, that's just how the stability assist works. SAS will attempt to hold your current attitude. . .if Kerbin were flat, it would make your plane fly straight. But since Kerbin is a sphere, the ground is curving away from you as you fly, and over time this will make your plane pitch up relative to the horizon. You will need to make occasional adjustments when flying long distances.
  6. Hello and Welcome!

    Welcome to the forums Cardinal. I think I see what's going on. The green ticks on the contract just check that all the various conditions for completion are being met. For some contracts, that's all you need. For others, the contract wants you to do something once all the conditions are met. For example, some of the part test contracts say "Haul item XYZ". In this case, you just have to have the appropriate part on your ship, and once all the requirements are checked off, the contract automatically completes. Other contracts, however, say "Test item XYZ". For those contracts, you have to first meet all the requirements (the green check marks) and then test the item. If the item can be staged, then you must use the stage command (space bar) to test the part. For items that cannot be staged (like landing gear), you'll need to right click on the part and press the "Test part" button in the pop up menu. This will complete the contract. And just FYI, for engines, you can still stage them even if they're already in use. For example, if you have a contract that wants you to test an engine at, say, 6,000 meters altitude, but you want to use that engine right off the launchpad/runway, you can still make that work. Once you're in the air, you can rearrange the staging list so that that engine is on the next stage. Then you can stage it with the spacebar and complete the contract, even if it's already running. My guess is that the contracts you're having trouble with are part test contracts.
  7. Hey!

    I'm sorry to approach you here, but I'm new to the forums and not able to send you a private message.

    I did some searching and saw your posts about the CH throttle and fighterstick. I'm using the same setup but I'm having some issues. I'm able to make it work and map keys correctly etc - but I'm struggling with making it feel good. Like the roll and pitch of the stick feels terrible as it's way too sensitive and only kicks in at a certain point (deadzone issue). And I was really excited about the mini joystick on the throttle for RCS, but using it ingame is super unreliable and very hard to control.

    I was wondering if you have any tips for setting it up well, and if you would be willing to share your settings if it's working well for you.

    Again sorry for posting this as a status. Maybe I can reply to you if you send me a private message? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!

    Thread moved to the add-on discussions area of the forum.
  9. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    I think Mr. Musk might have just voided the warranty on his roadster. . .
  10. Hi Matt, and welcome to the forums! There is a thread pinned to the top of this section of the forum that has useful information on how to get support, including log files and how to find them. I've included the relevant bit in the spoiler box below this message. I would stress, do not attempt to post the log directly into the forum as text, even in a spoiler box. Please upload it somewhere else (like Dropbox) and then post the link to the file here.
  11. A Thread for Writers to talk about Writing

    I'm late to the party here, but given the odd and random things we're apt to use when developing our own characters, I thought you all would appreciate this story. There's a little booklet that came with the Serenity soundtrack CD , and it has some anecdotes from the folks that did the music. Apparently, somewhere along the line, one of them (I think it was David Newman himself, but I don't remember) was driving down the road and passed by a yard sale. The people running it had suffered through a flood of one sort or another, and a lot of the stuff on offer was in bad shape. Sitting in the middle of all of the junk was a piano that had been absolutely ruined by water damage. Something about that broken piano just spoke to him, and Mr. Newman bought it and took it back to his studio. In his mind, it was the perfect embodiment of River Tam, and he ended up using it as part of her theme in the movie. You can hear it playing in that video you linked Jim, starting right around the 16 second mark.
  12. Ask the Mods questions about the Forums!

    We always thought alien life would come from the stars, but it came from deep beneath the internet. . . I've seen a few duplicate threads pop up lately, yes.
  13. Landing gear for bouyancy control?

    Interesting. It kind of makes sense, I suppose. The mass of the part doesn't change, but when the legs extend their volume increases, and so you end up displacing more water. Nice find.
  14. What computer do you have?!?

    My family's first computer was one of these. . . You haven't lived until you've tried to pull data off of a cheap cassette tape.
  15. How to jump to first unread post

    I've moved this thread to the Kerbal Network area of the forum, as it's about the forum itself. Don't. I didn't know either until I saw this thread. If I may make a suggestion. . .if you changed the title of the thread to something along the lines of "How to jump to first unread post", it would be easier for people to find in the future.
