  1. I would be grateful to know whether or not you also use Principia with FARc In KSP 1.11.1. Thanks! I have found that I can create a fatal crash for Principia with FARc version for 1.10.x = "Mader" under some circumstances...specifically dropping boosters apparently near the KSC shoreline (so at the moment I speculate it may be related to whatever is driving the 'water' issue some reported in some of the posts above experiencing with FARc in 1.11)
  2. Ok, thanks! I will create an issue at GitHub & attach the journal that I just added to the same google drive folder...I can reproduce it immediately by just adding FAR & dropping those boosters...FAR appears to not have yet been released yet for 1.11 so I am hopeful that team will be willing to look into whatever is identified....so will be grateful for you taking a look when you have time.
  3. @pleroy when you have a moment, I am seeing a strange type of fatal crash on frequent occasion after only some radial de-couplings...launching the same base rocket design over & over for various short Kerbin missions... I'm posting it here rather than at github for now because way back there was #1549 that looked a bit similar...but in that case was due to KIS...so would like your suggestions of what to try next based on the following: One odd thing about this one is that it occurs frequently but does not occur all the time, but with this craft always seems to occur some amount o
  4. we use it in KSP 1.11.1 The parts seem fine so far in sandbox mode & also show up in science mode at various places in the tech tree. The KerBalloons mod's flight recorder even appears to record data to .csv from some of the sensors even after they are deployed from the craft, which is nice for edu projects...
  5. LGG's KerBalloons Re-Inflated appears to work as expected for me with Principia including in KSP 1.11.1 ( KerBalloons has been a favorite mod of mine in combination with with Principia regarding launching 'Rockoons' (link) for awhile... ) for reference: updated my old post on this issue to reflect LGG's adoption
  6. I loaded in KSP 1.11.1 with Principia Gödel & lifted one test balloon flight...seems to work fine ( & behavior appears similar to the revised 0.4.4 I have been using the past >1 year, including responding to KerbalWind, etc.). Thus, looks good so far to me per this quick test flight...proceeding with your planned CKAN release seems fine to me.... I have updated my old post on the Principia forum to point to this topic thread. & @linuxgurugamer I really like the configuration changes you made regarding the universal balloon! I'll keep an eye out for anything
  7. great! the .dll I made for myself in 2019 uses by simply removing the 3 instances of .RidgidBody from the decompiled 0.4.4 from CurseForge then recompiling.
  8. @linuxgurugamer Thank you for adopting this great mod. I can take a closer look this weekend. In 2019, I made a Principia compatible version for myself that has worked well since then. I see over at GitHub that you forked the github version = 0.4.3. I assume my simple pull request to Fengist there did not show up in the new fork but that you have made similar changes based on your posts above. I see that you merged the request :-) The 0.4.4 version released at CurseForge has the nice flight recorder & science tools. A few more details at the link to my specific post in the Princ
  9. For anyone with access to a 3D printer who would like to print a terrain model for themselves to go along with the Perseverance Rover's arrival at Mars (whether it be a fireball, a new crater, or a smooth landing...I'm looking forward to the event)... We have made some printable models using the NASA Mars Trek ...& anyone can also pretty easily make their own custom models as well either directly in the NASA Trek or with a DEM & QGIS... (I also wrote & included a short 'story' about the Mars atmosphere: sunset & cloud colors and how that relates to space garlic bread,
  10. a moderator pointed me to this post, I see you have posted in English on the KerbalEDU forum & since English is my primary language, my response here is in English (Google did an impressive job translating your message). Both KSP & KerbalEDU have a steep learning curve. KerbalEDU as it stands today is mostly now a licensing matter since it allows any person to use a copy. TeacherGaming seems to have kept KerbalEDU at version 1.4.5 since it was the last version to support both x64 & x32 operating systems which was easier for schools with older computers. I also own both
  11. & for those of us not traveling to today's total solar eclipse centerline we can watch the eclipse in KSP with the help of Kopernicus, Module Manager, RSS, Scatterer, EVE, RSSVE & Principia: 2020 December 14 Total Solar Eclipse & some fun additional ways to watch: Live Stream: NSO h-alpha network
  12. @hypervelocity 2 weeks until the next new moon & total solar eclipse...this screenshot is for you...I hope you make it to the path of totality on Dec 14...maybe with a nice pair of binoculars since the rare minutes of complete totality are the one time that a person may "safely" view the "sun"...well, the corona & prominences, that is...without regular solar filters (see details at NASA solar viewing safety page link). After the 2017 total eclipse, I really had hoped to visit Argentina & see this one myself :-) Fortunately, Principia will enable me to enjoy the view in KSP...
  13. @scimas Thank you very much for sharing all that work! Just tried your 2015 .cfg...I pulled a few vectors from jpl horizons to spot check your numbers, loaded it in KSP 1.9.1 & took a few screenshots of astronomical events...looks great! with scimas' 2015 initial state vectors .cfg (KSP 1.9.1)
  14. admittedly kids might like that idea, perhaps even better than squishing dimples in 'Bennu marshmallows'...please overlook the abysmal technical approximations & limitations of terrestrial kitchen materials ;-) We did consider that the large presumably ridged 'boulders' like this tower might have better hand holds & relative mass ratio for EVA 'climbing/handrail' activities...I still have not figured out how to make a good height & normal map...Bennu is really a tricky size for KSP...eventually I hope at least to have a 10x model that looks at least similar to the Bennu Trek..
  15. The sequence released on APOD shows a nice bit of the particle motion with a good shadow angle: Bennu tag particle ejection: [the nature of the 'soft dimpled looking' craters especially near the equator ( link: trek.nasa.gov/bennu ) has been of interest since this past summer... while looking at the Bennu Trek with some children and talking about this mission...(& the idea of rubble pile asteroids hitting Earth's Moon, etc. ) & wondering about a person in an EVA suit (or similar stone, etc.) moving near Bennu ,who might experi
