    Longest loading time (due to mods)

    21 Minutes? 30 minutes? Geez, I pull my hair out waiting the 3 to 4 minutes mine takes. MM

    Stock part edits

    Why would you change a stock part? Because you can. Is it cheating? There is no such thing as cheating in a single player game. Enjoy the game and have fun any way you choose. MM

    Burned out on KSP

    Change your style of play. When I got burn out a couple of years ago, I changed my SOP to building rockets and planes with an eye towards hyper efficiency in terms of part count and cost. I also challenged myself to reduce my mod dependency. I went from 40+ mods to less than half as many. It' amazing how the creative challenge sparked my desire to play again. Have fun. MM

    Rovers on other planets/moons

    Solar panels still work on Duna. Check out Wild Blue Industries mod for some cool rovers with built in rooftop solar panels. I prefer skycranes because they provide better control for a precise landing. Have fun and let us know about your future adventures. MM

    Silly Kerbal Fact

    Why do I feel like reading "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock"? You guys are truly talented. Bravo! Do I dare disturb the universe? MM

    Any Tips for Spaceplanes?

    There are tons of helpful videos on Youtube. Also, checkout the spacecraft exchange for examples of various designs that work well. Have fun. MM

    Kerbal Astronomy 101

    Just found this. What an awesome piece of work. Thank you so much. I second the vote for including OPM bodies in this. Thanks again for the great contribution. MM

    Is MechJeb hate still a thing?

    Can I suggest the mods put a 12 month moratorium on any posts containing the words MechJeb, cheating, love or hate. Happy flying to all. MM

    Looking for some rover cockpits

    I swear by Buffalo. Extremely lightweight and very versatile. MM

    Is MechJeb hate still a thing?

    Exactly how I feel. I modify configs all the time. I change parts to suit my needs. I'm having a blast as I explore the Kerbol system. And lastly, I love MechJeb. MM
  11. I did a similar thing once by accident. I was playing around with Hyperedit and moved Eve into a very low Kerbin orbit. It was beautiful. Wish I had taken a screen shot. Fortunately I loaded a quick save and restored the Kerbol system. MM

    Where can I find inflatable habitation modules?

    When all else fails, Scott Manely comes to the rescue.

    Where can I find inflatable habitation modules?

    You might want to try a mod called Janitor's Closet. It let's you selectively prune parts to save memory. I have an old laptop as well and pruning parts and deleting unnecessary files saves a lot of memory, speeds up loading and reduces lag. Have fun. MM

    Where can I find inflatable habitation modules?

    I second Pathfinder. Lots of options and very easy to use. I have bases on the Mun, Duna and Slate. Good luck and have fun. MM
  15. Just timed it and time to fire up was actually 4:36. I have 8 GRAM and a 2.3 GHz. For me, pruning unneeded parts with Janitors Closet seems to make a big difference in boot up time. Would be interested in other player's thoughts. MM
