  1. I use it. Quite nice addition to my game.
  2. What's behind your username?

    Mine is an interesting story. Back when I was in college, the computer center (mainrfames) assigned usernames based on first initial, and last name. Mine was already taken. Then tried reversing it, going first name, initial of last name. Also taken. So they asked me what I wanted. I was playing Dungeons and Dragons a lot at the time, so I went with my Mage/Assassin names Alanon Zander. AZander. Been using it ever since. When google required, for a short time, proper First and Last names for G+, I had them check mine. I had been using it so long that they thought, and still do, it was a real person's name.
  3. Yes, but having to re-download them for each language update would be solved with a way for MM to add just language packs for a mod.
  4. Feature request: It would be nice if MM could handle installing language packs for mods/stock. I have no idea if this is even possible, but it would be a handy feature with the recent language system. We wouldn't have to re-download/install mods just for language translations.
  5. [1.3] Freight Transport Technologies [v0.6.0]

    Just a note that the download link on the OP is incorrect.
  6. 1) If you run Steam, you can opy your install folder to a different location. I copy mine to my HomeDir using the version number. I have KSP-1.1.0, KSP-1.1.1, KSP-1.1.2, KSP-1.1.3, KSP-1.2.0, KSP-1.2.1, and KSP-1.2.2. I didn't copy the 1.2.29 since it was a beta, and I haven't yet moved my 1.3.0 install. This way you can keep your old games, mods, etc even when steam auto-updates you. 2) you can choose the previous version in steam, under the Beta tab on your game settings in Steam. I'd pick the 1.2.2, download it, install it, copy it else where then restore the setting to keep the game up to date. Then you can run 1.2.2 while you wait for the mods to catch up. 3) This is a rather large update for the modders. Depending on the mod itself it can be as simple as a recompile or as complex as a complete re-write.
  7. Please keep making the Stock Dimension, I use it quite a bit. New sizes look good.
  8. What I do is I have a part that creates all materials, fuel, energy, etc, with toggles. I use a battery as the model, changed it's name added the proper sections in the config, and call it my Demon Battery. Then you don't need the cheat options, and you can test things with it on,off or use it to re-fill tanks to you can test things. Saves a lot of time testing designs and ship configurations, pus if you have other ships doing things the cheat won't affect them too.

  10. The Linux Thread!

    I have, but it was the improperly installed nVIDIA drive. The WINE emulator was emulating DirectX so bypassed the openGL interface with the nVidia driver.
  11. To those who work IT

    You are pretty close on percentages to reality for Level 1 support. I work for a small Internet provider. So small I do everything, except pay the bills and make the large decisions. This means I have the "What is my password?" (write it down!), "How do I get my email?" (same way you ahve been for the past 5+ years!), and "Why doesn't my computer work?" (turn on the computer, instead of JUST the monitor) as well as the "My internet stopped working." (spend 2+ hours or real troubleshooting only to find the $VENDOR device upstream (in the case I can remember off the top of my head it was an AT&T DSLAM) has failed and was being replaced as I did my troubleshooting). I also happen to do web coding (not design, I can't make things look pretty if I tried but I do make the pretty work). At level 2 and 3 you get a slightly lower percentage of bs-ing and googling, and a slightly higher on memorization and thinking, but not by much. Az
  12. Things to see around Yellowstone

    Plan on many days if you wish to see anything beyond the "tourist trap" areas. First, I recommend entering from the Montana (North) Entrance. Take at least half a day to visit the old fort and the hot springs. From there to east along the grand loop. Take your time, and stop often to view the different nature areas, not just the thermal features. When you get about halfway down Yellowstone stop at the Canyon Visitor Center. Continue southward along the outer grand loop to about a 2/3rd of the way down, and stop at Fishing Bridge Inn for a meal. Everything in the park is expensive, but the food is normally really really good. Continue southward (and now west) along the grand loop, which will bring you to Old Fathful. I recommend at least a full day there if you can manage it. The Inn itself is very rustic, and has a several year waiting list. If they offer it (sometimes to do) take a trip out on Yellowstone lake and see the lake from the water's side. Please remember that you are in the animals' home, and not a human one. Do not approach them, not not try to get closer if it means stepping off the roadway. That is the fastest way to get hurt. Take it from a Wyoming native, Yellowstone is always changing. There is somet6hing new to see each and every time you go there. Az
  13. You will probably need Mel Brooks to direct it.
  14. The Linux Thread!

    @Malah If you read back a few pages, I have done everything suggested. The final step was to try a different Desktop manager. That solved the issue. 1.1.x was horrid for linux compatability. 1.2.0, so far, is much nicer. I have a minor issue, but still working on figuring out if it is a dying keyboard or a bug to be investigated.
  15. The Linux Thread!

    Check your KDE/Gnome settings. I know Unity is having trouble reading KDE4-plasma for screen resolution. I switched to XFCE and have not, yet, had a problem on 1.1.3, or 1.2.0-pre, with wacky resolutions at startup. The desktop manager is ALL I changed. Nothing else. Az
