  1. I never have problems with CKAN. Except that today I'm having one. I downloaded the program anew because it wasn't working right and now it breaks every time I try to run it. It won't start, and instead I get a message that reads as follows: Unhandled exception: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at CKAN.RegistryManager.AscertainDefaultRepo() at CKAN.RegistryManager..ctor(String path, KSP ksp) at CKAN.RegistryManager.Instance(KSP ksp) at CKAN.Main..ctor(String[] cmdlineArgs, GUIUser user, Boolean showConsole) at CKAN.GUI.Main_(String[] args, Boolean showConsole) at CKAN.CmdLine.MainClass.Main(String[] args) I have no idea what it's trying to tell me. How do I figure out what's wrong so I can fix it? ETA: After futzing with things for a bit, I realized that maybe the CKAN folder that shows up in the KSP folder once it's been run once might be messed up* and so I deleted it and ran CKAN a second time. That seemed to fix things. I'm still getting ready to ops check the game and see if it really is fixed or if I'm just whistling in the dark. * Technical term.
  2. I wasn't able to manually install this in 1.30, but for 1.31, it works! I've been building planes based on the design of the Payen Pa-22, and the radial engine works very well with it. I also like the 2.5m offset adapter that tapers to 1.25. I can use tweakscale to shrink it down for use as the tail of an F-86 approximation. Bonus! It also makes my P-36 approximation look much less approximate.
  3. I've been trying to use this mod with BD armory, and I noticed some intermittent problems that do not occur when I am flying just one plane with this mod. The first plane loads normally, but the second and subsequent planes spawn (using Vessel Mover) with no crew. I tried just going back to KSC, then into the SPH, then launch a new plane. Sometimes it works, but on subsequent launches, some or all of the planes I had already launched and moved off the runway were missing. When I go to the KSC, some of the planes will not show a standard icon, but one for debris. I'm not sure how to chase down the gremlins for this problem, so I'm hoping someone smarter will have an idea that helps. Otherwise, perhaps they could suggest a mod that includes cockpits about the same length and weight as this one? I'd rather use these, as they are perfect for WW1 planes, and (aesthetically, at least), preferable to the ones that come with Firespitter.

    [1.2.2] Kerbal Aircraft Expansion (KAX) v2.6.4

    I tried that, but none of the parts from the mod were showing up in the hangar. I've managed to download some other mods I'm fond of that aren't available on CKAN yet, but I think this is one of the ones I'm gonna have to wait to come out on CKAN before I can install it.

    I already have the Firespitter mod. Will the included version override that one? If that would cause problems, what steps must I take to avoid them?

    So even if KAX says it's only good for 1.2, I can use it in 1.3? WHat do I need to download and where do I need to install it?
  7. I really like this mod. It presents me with clear readings and brings up the critical temperatures I need to worry about. If a part is hot, it's nice to see how rapidly it's heating, if something I did to cool things back down actually helped lower the temperature, and how close am I to "hot enough to explode". Thanks!
  8. Perhaps this will refresh your memory (provided you've ever seen it).
  9. Just one question: will this get me to plaid?
  10. You and me both, brother! I just wish I could use tweakscale on the floats that come with Lack's Stock Extension (SXT). That would solve most of my flying boat needs.
  11. Relevant video (Read the comments on the first one if you want to see commentary by people who worked on them. This one has sound and gives some idea of how it was developed.
  12. The only problem I experienced was resolved when I removed the '.txt' extension my text editor had "helpfully" added to the '.cfg' extension you specified. It works. Thanks! Now I can make that FR-1 homage without the engine sounding like it's gasping for breath all the @#$% time.
  13. Roger, copy! I'm winding down today, but I'll give it a shot tomorrow. I already created the file and put it in Gamedata. We'll see how it works.
  14. It would be nice if it stopped dropping off at some low amount that allowed the engine to idle instead of cutting out, like maybe 3-5% or thereabouts.
