  1. If you are interested in using this planet pack with Kerbalism, I posted a file on the Kerbalism thread that will add support for Beyond Home. Direct link to the post: Edit: N70 said this will be added to Kerbalism in the near future
  2. Please do! Thank you again for giving us Kerbalism mate!
  3. Below I am posting the cfg I am using for playing Kerbalism with the Beyond Home planet pack. If you are interested in using these mods together, place this file in the Gamedata>Kerbalism>Support folder. I intentionally made a couple of moons pass through the radiation belts of their parent planet. I know this is probably not realistic, but I wanted an extra challenge in my playthrough. The planet Fury is probably the most extreme example. If you do not like it, setting the inner_extension for Fury to something like 0.8 or 0.85 may look more realistic to you (it is on line 20 underneath name=furyRadiationModel). GoogleDrive link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1tbiD68VA0rS8-p-SnW6A6nOXpPOrFEGQ/view?usp=sharing Or open the spoiler below for the code:
  4. Ahh. That makes sense. The only reason I included the [*] in the first place was because that is how it was written on support cfgs for New Horizons and OPM. Thanks again!
  5. Thanks for the reply SilverState! That fixed the problem. The [*] at the end of @EXPERIMENT_DEFINITION[*] needed to be removed. It actually looks like BeyondHome used custom planet names for every planet except Kerbin. Thank you as well for the suggestion to avoid errors! I know those science defs aren't going to end up seeing the light of day, but it was driving me nuts that I could not figure out why they were not changing.
  6. Ahhh. I guess I was under the impression that 3.0 was quite far out.
  7. I am making a cfg with custom radiation definitions for the Beyond Home planet pack and am having trouble changing the Geiger Counter experiment definitions. I used the support cfg for OPM and New_Horizons as a template. If yall have a moment, would you mind having a look at it and see if anything looks incorrect? Currently the radiation definitions work correctly but I can't get the GeigerCounter definitions to stop using the default messages. // ============================================================================ // GeigerCounter science experiment definitions // ============================================================================ @EXPERIMENT_DEFINITION[*]:HAS[#id[geigerCounter]]:NEEDS[BeyondHome]:AFTER[Kerbalism] { @RESULTS { //Fury FurySrfLanded = Fury's volcanos have flooded the surface with radioactive material.

HydronInSpaceLow = Hydron's lack of a magnetosphere is not suprising. HydronInSpaceHigh = Readings fluctuate as the moon orbits Hydrus. //Rhode @KerbinSrfLanded = We really got lucky with this planet. A strong magnetosphere and atmosphere protects us from most cosmic rays. @KerbinFlyingLow = Beep...............Beep...............Beep. @KerbinFlyingHigh = The geiger counter thinks it can see a glowing band of radiation just beyond Rhode's atmosphere. @KerbinInSpaceLow = There is definitely a glowing ring of radiation out there. @KerbinInSpaceHigh = The geiger counter wonders what a geiger is.... and why it is supposed to be counting them. //Lua LuaSrfLanded = The geiger counter is quite comfortable here LuaFlyingLow = The thin atmosphere does a decent job of shielding against cosmic rays. LuaFlyingHigh = It would probably be safer for us on the ground. LuaInSpaceLow = The geiger counter takes a break while Lua passes through Rhode's magnetopause.

ScindoInSpaceHigh = The geiger counter thinks it would be a bad idea to land on Scindo. //Gateway GatewaySrfLanded = HaXorZ GatewayFlyingLow = The geiger counter wonders what it did to deserve this. GatewayFlyingHigh = The geiger counter begs you not to go any deeper. GatewayInSpaceLow = A thick band of intense radiation surrounds Gateway. Why would you come here?!? GatewayInSpaceHigh = A thick band of deadly radiation surrounds Gateway and it's rings. //Proxim ProximSrfLanded = The needle on the geiger counter spun around twice then flew off. ProximInSpaceLow = Proxim orbits inside of Gateways radiation belt. This may be the most dangerous place in the entire solar system. ProximInSpaceHigh = The geiger counter does not know how to count above a bajillion. //Kohm KohmSrfLanded = The geiger counter is quite comfortable on the surface of Kohm. KohmFlyingLow = There is almost no radiation here. KohmFlyingHigh = The geiger counter can taste the ionosphere. KohmInSpaceLow = The geiger counter is just glad we did not go closer to Gateway. KohmInSpaceHigh = There is a gentle ionosphere around Kohm that shields it from radiation. //Eidos EidosSrfLanded = Eidos is slightly sheilded from cosmic radiation by Gateways magnetopause EidosInSpaceLow = The geiger counter thinks Eidos looks like a mint dip 'n dot EidosInSpaceHigh = The gieger counter thinks we are dangerously close to Gateway's outer radiation belt. //Ansia AnsiaSrfLanded = There is nothing to protect Ansia from the periodic onslaught of charged particles from Gateway. AnsiaInSpaceLow = The geiger counter begins to count: "ONE geiger, hahaha. TWO geiger, hahaha. THREE geiger.....hahaha." AnsiaInSpaceHigh = The geiger counter starts to cry as Ansia enters Gateway's outer radiation belt. //Jade JadeSrfLanded = With no atmosphere or magnetosphere, Jade is essentially naked....in a cosmic sense. JadeInSpaceLow = The geiger counter can see a fuzzy glow around Gateway from here. JadeInSpaceHigh = The geiger counter begins to yawn. //Rock RockSrfLanded = Rock is covered in radioactive....rocks. RockInSpaceLow = The geiger counter detects a low level of radiation emanating from the surface. It is probably dangerous down there! RockInSpaceHigh = Rock has no protection from cosmic radiation. //Vasto VastoSrfLanded = All ice and no Magnetosphere makes Vasto a dull boy. VastoInSpaceLow = The only radiation here is the glare from Vasto's albino surface. VastoInSpaceHigh = Perhaps Vasto is a projectile in a cosmic snowball fight between Kerbol and Tempus! //Voss VossSrfLanded = The geiger counter dies of boredom. VossInSpaceLow = The geiger counter questions the meaning of it's existance. VossInSpaceHigh = Voss has no protection from cosmic radiation. //Kerbol KerbolSrfLanded = Uuuuuuummmmm?!? KerbolFlyingLow = Wut Wut?!? KerbolFlyingHigh = How are you doing this? Are you a wizard? KerbolInSpaceLow = STILL......HOT!!!!! KerbolInSpaceHigh = The geiger counter feels sorry for the old star. //Tribute TributeSrfLanded = Kerbin's surface was blasted off long ago. The remaining core is still radioactive and dangerous. Perhaps we should be going now? TributeInSpaceLow = The surface is radioactive and dangerous. Are you sure you want to go down there TributeInSpaceHigh = Looks hot down there. The surface is glowing with radiation. //Dynasty DynastySrfLanded = The geiger counter thinks Dynasty is a nice place to visit. But, it wouldn't want to live here. DynastyFlyingLow = There is very little activity on Dynasty. DynastyFlyingHigh = The geiger counter twiddles it's thumbs as it waits for something to do. DynastyInSpaceLow = Dynasty has no magnetosphere but the surface looks fairly safe due to it's atmosphere. DynastyInSpaceHigh = The geiger counter thinks it sees a giant face on the surface of Dynasty... then realizes it was just the shadows playing tricks. //Drohze DrohzeSrfLanded = The surface is slightly radioactive. Perhaps it was once impacted by a giant radioactive asteroid? DrohzeInSpaceLow = The geiger counter clicks happily as it skims the surface of Drohze. DrohzeInSpaceHigh = The geiger counter detects a low level of radiation on the planet's surface. //Janus JanusSrfLanded = The surface of an ancient gas giant should be increadibly radioactive. Yet some how, Janus has virtually no radiation below its clouds. JanusFlyingLow = Virtually no radiation detected here. How is this possible? JanusFlyingHigh = The geiger counter suddenly stops clicking. You wonder if it is broken. JanusInSpaceLow = The radiation ring around Janus reminds the geiger counter of its favorite donut. JanusInSpaceHigh = Janus has a very uniform magnetopause. This is probably due to the lack of stellar wind and attention from its home star. //Tau TauSrfLanded = Tau has a very active core and a healthy magnetosphere around it. TauFlyingLow = Tau has virtually no radiation in it's atmosphere. TauFlyingHigh = The geiger counter feels right at home. TauInSpaceLow = Tau has a healthy magnetosphere around it.

TalonInSpaceHigh = Talon is safe within Janus's magnetopause. //Lond LondSrfLanded = Lond has no protection against cosmic rays. LondInSpaceLow = The geiger counter is not interested in what Lond has to say LondInSpaceHigh = Lond is pretty boring from a radiological stand point. //Verna VernaSrfLanded = On a planet this inactive, a geiger counter might as well be called a geiger waiter. VernaFlyingLow = Nothing of interest here. The geiger counter goes back to sleep. VernaFlyingHigh = The geiger counter waves goodbye to the cosmic radiation. VernaInSpaceLow = Verna has no magnetosphere. You are just measuring the background radiation. VernaInSpaceHigh = The geiger counter begins beatboxing out of boredom. } } Thank you for the wonderful mod!!
  8. Ahhh brilliant! Looks like it is time for me to dig into that tab haha
  9. I really like that too. Buuuuuuut, it can get you killed when EC is tight and you forget to turn them back off . Thats easy to work with though and overall I love the change.
  10. You basically just described my first experience with 2.2. I thought it was great and introduced alot of interesting problems to solve that spiced the game up. Love it! Will experiments complete in the background? For example: if you turn on a grav sensor on a polar orbit, can you leave it and let it slowly collect grav data from all of the biomes while you fly other ships?
  11. I was one of the people that accidently got a copy of 2.2 and I actually really enjoyed the new way yall are doing science now. I was tempted to switch back to it but decided to at least wait until a stable version is announced XD. You guys put some really great ideas into Kerbalism and it is awesome that you still adding new ones!
  12. Thanks so much for the quick reply Cruesoe. I guess I should have read the previous posts more carefully b/c I did not even realize that I had installed version 2.2. You hit the nail on the head though. I have 2.1.2 installed now. Thank you!!
  13. I am having the same issue. Is this a known issue? I do not see anything listed on github and my search of this topic did not find any other people mentioning it other than Mr. 3x01 here. This makes me wonder if i am doing something wrong. Specifically my mission is to perform a crew report while flying below 19km over a location. I enter the location and begin/complete the experiment but the contract does not complete. I am certain that I am at the correct location, at the correct altitude, and performing the correct experiment.
  14. I posted this to github (here) but I suppose I should put it in the support thread as well incase someone else searches for this. KSPIE 1.19.4 and KSP 1.4.5. Mods installed - KSPIE (and packaged mods), karbonite/karbonite+, hyperedit. A ship with an ACTIVATED Closed Cycle Gas Engine will be deleted from the game when you scene change to it. Steps to reproduce: Make a ship with probe core, LH2 tank, batteries, radiators, and a Closed Cycle Gas Engine. Launch it or hyper edit it into orbit activate the engine Switch to the space center Switch back to the ship Observe the ship load momentarily and then vanish before/when physics kick in. The height indicator changes to 00000 and the speed indicator changes to NAN. See this imagehttps://i.imgur.com/ybn4bDA.png Activating the engine is a must. If the engine is not activated, the ship will load like normal. Also, activating and then deactivating the engine will still cause the ship to vanish. I also tried using methane instead of LH2 and tried switching fuels after activating. Activating the engine appears to be the crucial step. Also, it will not happen when the rocket is still on the launch pad.
  15. @FreeThinker FYI. The link to the support thread from this thread is broken. Removing "&do=edit" from the end restores the link.
