I am playing KSP x64 v126.96.36.1994 with Kerbalism and USI exploration pack in sandbox mode. I have launched an Otter crew cabin into orbit around Kerbin with some batteries. The nitrogen usage is normal at first, but if I disable the habitat function, and then enable it, the nitrogen levels deplete very quickly, about 1 unit / s.
Community Resource Pack v0.7.1.0
Firespitter Core v7.6.0
Module Manager v2.8.1 USI Exploration Pack v0.8.1.0 USI Tools v0.9.2.0
I created a clean KSP install and only installed Kerbalism and USI Exploration pack from Ckan, including the dependancies.
Steps to reproduce:
Go into VAB, place the Stayputnik as the root part, place an Otter Crew Cabin below, and 4 x Z1-K batteries below again. Stick a Communotron 16s on the side. Save and launch. Press Alt-F12, select Cheats, select Set Orbit. Ensure Kerbin is selected and set the Semi-Major Axis to 2686750 and select Set Orbit Close the Set Orbit Window. Right click on the Otter Crew Cabin and leave this window open. Timewarp for a period of time to ensure that the Nitrogen usage is normal, about 1 unit every 30 minutes of game time. Disable the habitat. Once disable, enable the habitat again. Nitrogen usage is about 1 unit / second.
If I disable the Pressure control the nitrogen usage stops (expected). Starting pressure control the nitrogen usage starts again. If I launch a new vessel and only disable and enable pressure control the nitrogen usage remains as normal. it only happens when Habitat is disable and enabled.
Is there a way after I disable the habitat and enable it to return the nitrogen usage to normal rates?
Actually just did another clean install and only installed Kerbalism and module manager, and did the same test using a Mk1 inline cockpit. I had to configure pod for pressure control, but when I disable and enabled the habitat the same issue occurred on the Mk1. The nitrogen usage skyrocketed after enabling the habitat.
