  1. Using the 1.3.1 compatible 18.4 version with RSS. Trying to do contract missions for particular waypoints, but the waypoints drift with rotation. The orbit track in the map window is very useful for this as it compensates for drift...however I don't see the orbit tracks showing up as yet (the button is enabled). Does orbit tracking require a certain tech level or tracking station level 2 possibly before they show up? Thanks! EDIT: Nevermind, the tracking station upgrade dialog says that level 2 is required to show orbits in the map.

    Exploring the ridges on Dres.
  3. I put an atmospheric karbonite scoop around Laythe and dip it into the atmosphere and I get Karbonite collection. However I put a karbonite collector in close orbit around Laythe (like 1km above the atmosphere) but it says there is nothing to collect. I even redeployed it to low Jool orbit and no Karbonite. Am I missing something with how the collector works? I was REALLY hoping to put a huge station in Laythe orbit with multiple collectors to act as a fuel depot. Yes, I deployed the collector, yes, I opened the collector, yes, I have an empty Karbonite tank, yes, I have enough EC/second to power it. Thanks.
  4. I can't say enough good things about this mod. I did about 600 km of traverses on Duna last night, stopping at several points to collect science and investigate anomalies, seeing more of the Dunian 'countryside' than I had ever before. Is there a donation link for the mod creator? I didn't see one in the first post.

    Someone's happy to be on Duna.

    Of course, near the sun, the stars will be blocked out (as you would expect). You can also install another skybox, which I've been thinking of doing because there are too few stars for my taste. There's a high resolution Earth sky skybox on here somewhere. I've found that it is sometimes just random. If I quit and reload, the blue is usually gone. I see it most on the Mun or Vall.

    Downloading and expanding fine from here. You can also grab it through CKAN.

    IIRC I got around this by removing the Mun section from the duststorms.cfg file. I preferred not having dust at the Mun anyways. I then ran into this blue thing again at Vall, and got around that by lowering the dust altitude for Vall in the duststorms.cfg to 150. Vall is Europa's counterpart so there should be some ice particles floating around.

    As an alternative, you could install Galileo's OPM_Galileo mod which adds 3 planets analogous to Saturn and its rings, Uranus, and Neptune.

    Joolrise from Vall orbit.
  12. Just completed a 50 kilometer traverse on Laythe with a Malemute. This mod is SOOOO awesome. (and that was over some pretty diverse and rough terrain, from the west coast of one of the larger islands to the east coast, ranging from altitudes of ~800m to ~4500m and slopes anywhere from 2 to 17 degrees)

    [1.3] The Malemute Rover [0.2.0]

    Malemute docked with a Salamander survey ship in Vall orbit, headed for a Laythe landing. A rather unusual way to get a rover to the surface, but it works surprisingly well.
  14. Medusa variant configured as transport, hauling the first outpost to Jool: science survey ship, hab outpost (with rovers for Vall and Laythe) & mining outpost for Vall, and a fully loaded refueling orbital station for Laythe.
  15. Bingo! Thanks!
