  1. Did the file ownership and permissions stay the same? Are both drives formatted NTFS? Any NTFS settings changed on either?
  2. If you want the fix to be separate from the mod, you could make an MM patch to change useGimbalResponseSpeed instead.
  3. Is there a difference in whether you use engine plates between the two?
  4. Taking a quick look at the config and copy pasting relevant bits, something like this might work: @PART[*]:HAS[@MODULE[ModuleEngines*]:HAS[#maxThrust,@atmosphereCurve]]:NEEDS[FeatureReliability]:FOR[KerbalismDefault]:FINAL { @MODULE[Reliability]:HAS[#type[ModuleEngines*]] { @rated_ignitions /= 2 @rated_ignitions ^= :\.\d+:: // Floor value to get an integer @rated_ignitions += 1 } } This will (hopefully) do vaguely what you want - halve ignition values, round down, add 1. That should leave 1 and 2 ignition engines alone, reduce 3 to 2, etc. I haven't tested it...
  5. Yes, you need a pressurized pod to safely do the 30 day contract. You can see the comfort / projected stress in the VAB, in the Kerbalism tab.
  6. The mk1 pod is not pressurized, so it will not lose atmosphere when you EVA. Other pods will.
  7. The total mass of the ship at the instant KSP changes your status to "orbit".
  8. Had a weird issue with Cryo Tanks where selecting a foil tank would cause FPS to drop below 1, and the tanks had both foil and polyhedral textures. I reverted to 1.5.3 and the performance was fixed, but not the textures. (Reverting Core also didn't seem to make a difference)
  9. Rescale = orbit size, Resize = body size.
  10. In reality, you would probably keep the mass ratio the same, and increase delta-v, then remove a stage if possible. But that's too complex and specific for this rough estimate. It was intended more as a demonstration of how these efficiency gains grow exponentially.
  11. Which, if you assume that each LFO stage is normally 2.5x the mass of it's payload (3.5x including it's payload), and you have a 10ton final payload on a 3-stage rocket, means that a LF/O rocket might be: 10*3.5^3 = 428.75t [1]. If you make all 3 stages cryo, your stage ratio is (2.5*.8)+1 = 3, so 10*3^3 = 270t. 63% the mass. The rocket equation adds up! (In practice you might increase Dv instead and go to a 2.5 stage design, but that's more complicated) EDIT: You can compute any hybrid, assuming there is no LFO stage above a cryo stage, as: (P*3^C)*3.5^L, where P is payload mass, C is the number of cryo stages on top, and L is the number of LFO stages below.
  12. 30% science sounds like an awful grind, why would you do that? (If you want to turn difficulty up, I recommend JNSQ).
  13. Swapping the stock solar panel module for a Kopernicus one could do that, yeah.
  14. That's a pretty broad question - generally just that they don't both try to change the same thing in different ways.
