  1. Works for me in 1.7.3, though it throws up Module Manager warnings based on syntax errors (Running Module Manager v4.0.3) . I wouldn't worry about them.

  2. I'll probably do a complete re-install of KSP and the mods or just re-install Kopernicus and AVP and dependencies. It probably is something up with that. EDIT 8/12/19: Reinstall of AVP and Kopernicus fixed the problems. I think the problem was that I did a "lazy" update of the mods, meaning I didn't uninstall and reinstall the mods. Can't be lazy updating mods.
  3. This is a common bug with Kopernicus. You're probably going to have to wait for an update. Even I'm having this bug and have had a lot of it in the past. For the record, I'm not using RSS, but I am using AVP. If I knew some C#, maybe I could nail the bug, but I haven't learned C#, so sorry about that. My suggestion is just to be patient.
  4. You can! Try hot staging! You can just fire your next stage before the previous stage runs out so that your tanks are settled. Early rockets used hot staging or solid upper stages (I think the Russians really loved hot staging), so in a way, having to hot stage or forego liquid upper stages before you unlock RCS or separatrons are a bit of realism. Also, sorry for never getting those SXT modules created. Real life hit me like a tsunami. It's why own main project fell into neglect. @Errol Maybe I could help model the simplistic physics of fuel and ox in zero-g if you want to create a better ullage sim? I also don't know if any actual spacecraft spin their tanks to create ullage, but this is KSP, and spinning your craft is a very kerbal way of settling fuel. I would think ullage time should be related to the impulse required to settle fuel (and ox) in a tank. Impulse J = F * delta t = delta p, so a heavier mass of fuel would require either a stronger push or more time with a weaker push to properly settle the fuel for ignition.
  5. Any engine that says "ullage required" does. Not all of the engines do with Engine Ignitor. You can also turn the ullage requirement completely off in the difficulty options.
  6. Just as a note, for anyone asking if people installed Kerbalism via CKAN, I don't even see Kerbalism on CKAN for 1.6.1. It's marked as compatible for 1.3.1. It's not a big issue as manually installing this mod is fairly easy, but just wanted to note it. Scratch that. Turns out my version of CKAN is not up to date, and I wasn't aware of it.
  7. I was directing that in general to others complaining and not you specifically. I read what you wrote. Sorry about the miscommunication there.
  8. Same, but you could just roll back to 1.4.5 or 1.3.1 and use a backport install until the mod is properly updated. Not sure why you can't go back to 1.5.0. Maybe that option will be present soon. Still, it's not the modder's fault that Squad decided to release a hotfix so suddenly. Plus, he can't act instantly. Gotta be patient.
  9. Hey everyone. Just want to give an update concerning this project. I hope it's OK that I update a thread that is warning me about reviving it, but it is my thread, and it's relevant information about this project. I hope to start back work at the end of this year. A lot of what's holding me back is personal stuff and not knowing if I can finish this on my laptop. My 1.2.2 RSS/RO install became very laggy when part mods, visual mods, and Principa were all installed. I hope to resolve this by only installing necessary parts in KSP RSS/RO 1.3.1.1. When I restart this project, I will rebuild the Saturn VB with DECQ's Saturn V model and RSB's RSRMs. I might try to create my own custom part for the Ares Mission Module to save on part count. Might ask a good friend to help me with Blender on that front. Also can't wait to use @AlphaMensae's launchpads mod for realistic Saturn V launch pads and launch towers. As far as the Ares Propulsion Module, I may keep the current one, which will require me to install some FASA parts, or I may switch to another Saturn V parts pack (Either DECQ or even BDB). Could create custom external tanks to save part count as well. Going to also make tweaks and bug fixes to the Saturn VB launch guidance script. I want to smooth out that pitch change after the guidance mode shifts from gravity turn to inertial guidance. I also suspect my current ascent profile is not the most efficient. If I can get a new desktop around New Years or later in the year, it should definitely make things easier since I hopefully won't have to deal with severe lag in the game. I should also be able to record the game without much fear of crippling lag. I definitely want to try the idea of a newscast or even a machinima of the book, but I'll have to see what's feasible when I get to that point. Even with knocking out the things to do above, I still need to practice the flyby and flight to Mars a few times. In the meantime, I am working on an Ares mission for the Making History mission builder. That will be in stock KSP and not RSS/RO, obviously. I'll create a new thread about it once I feel it's ready for testing and almost ready for release.
  10. How does it not fly? Are the aerodynamics bugged?
  11. It works in rescaled systems, but I think you have to edit the scaling factor so the plume expands properly. It's honestly an aesthetic choice, and probably not a big deal, especially for rescales close to stock or RSS size.
  12. This is one of my "must have" mods for KSP, RSS or otherwise, so I'm glad to see the stock configs kept alive. Curious how easy it would be to config this for scaled systems (e.g. 2.5x stock)?
  13. (Functions well in version 1.2.2 of the game??) I think it should. I haven't tested it in 1.2.2. The OP says that it should. Only way you can find out is to test it out and see.
  14. Gotcha. I imagine that will take referencing the real Apollo and Saturn V stats to apply those to the DECQ model. I took a look at the DECQ configs, and it looks like you can at least use Module Manage for the RO config. It does sound like you'll have to build RO configs almost from scratch for the DECQ version. @DECQ I assume you mean that you can dock the Apollo CM docking probe into the LM female docking port but not have the ports hard-sealed? I think they would refer to the probe being caught by the LM as "soft docking" with the LM, and "hard dock" would be when the CM and LM were clamped together and sealed up.
  15. I'll leave him to do it, though if I get to messing with this, I might develop my own on the interim.
  16. Thank you so much for releasing this, @DECQ. I've been wanting to use this realistic Saturn V for my Ares mission. If no-one's done RSS/RO configs, I imagine they would be identical to the FASA configs. If not, it could be a new project for me since I haven't worked on anything KSP-related for months.
  17. Let me know if it needs more testing. I did a lot of testing with it, which help Tik get everything just right for it to work in RO and RSS.
  18. Terrible? I agree with @Zuppermati. It's the most realistic-looking Saturn V that I've seen, and I've been dying to use it alongside FASA, BDB, and SSTU.
  19. HP Envy m7-n101dx notebook. It has a GeForce 940m card and Intel i7. It should be able to video edit.
  20. Yes, this project is on hiatus. Real life stuff getting in the way. Plus, I'm not sure if my laptop can do video recording and editing. It may, but not sure, and it would be at an atrocious frame rate with how I have KSP 1.2.2 + RSS/RO set up. Plus, trying to land on Eve for fun. I promise not to let this project die, but it's been hard to motivate myself to do it lately, which is not good since I really wanted to finish this.
  21. In the middle of an Eve manned mission myself. Never landed on Eve and returned before. Currently testing a lander before I commit a Kerbal to a surface mission. Wonder if I could do this by modifying my current mission profile? I can already imagine trying a flyby profile that minimizes flight time between Kerbin, Eve, and back while entering Eve's atmosphere and completing the mission.
  22. Awesome, @AlphaMensae. Good luck with it. Would love to use this in RSS with Real KSC (I think it's called) that gives you the real Kennedy Space Center. Real KSC has a MLP for Saturn rockets, but it's just a static KK object. Another thing with rockets like the Saturn VB is that there might be a need for extra flame holes for the SRBs. Maybe either small extensions for the SRBs or a larger hole in general. This is something that's not a necessity in KSP except for realism buffs.
