  1. Space station?

    I put rcs pods on decouplers so I can chuck them after I've docked the module.
  2. [1.3] SpaceTux Industries Recycled Parts

    Thanks, I think I'll do that as part of my 1.3 upgrade this weekend.
  3. [1.3] SpaceTux Industries Recycled Parts

    Would switching to this from Atomic Age break vessels currently in flight?
  4. [1.3] SpaceTux Industries Recycled Parts

    You might want to post in the threads for the mods this continues. I didn't know this was available since I was expecting a post in the Atomic Age thread.
  5. How long your first stages last?

    I usually do exactly this except I use one LF engine all the way to orbit with combined SRB/droptanks.
  6. Parachute Reset Mod

    Thanks for your post. I know that is possible, I want to avoid some of the drudgery. Like AutomatedScienceSampler does for science.
  7. Parachute Reset Mod

    Could someone put together a mod that provided a "reset parachutes" button if there is an engineer aboard the active craft that could reset the parachutes? For a mod it seems straightforward, but it is beyond my coding abilities.
  8. I've seen that from time to time on 1.2.2. In all cases, clicking on "set orbit" or whatever again solves the problem.
  9. That's because of life. Only petrochemical mining is energy profitable.
  10. FWIW, MechJeb has that feature.
  11. Where can I find the low/high science cutoffs for the new bodies in OPM? They're not on the wiki. I looked around the files. Is the relavant value: Body { Properties { ScienceValues { spaceAltitudeThreshold = 20000 } } } for Ovok for example?
  12. The Kerbal Space Program folder should be located at: /Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/ Copy the folder "Kerbal Space Program" that is at that location anywhere you want. In that folder is the application "KSP" that is what you run to play.
  13. The game uses a reference frame tied to the rotation of the planet for low orbits. So if you are in a Low kerbin orbit, with a period of about 20 minutes, then in the time it takes you to do one orbit (20 minutes) Kerbin has rotated 360*(20/6*60)=20 degrees. The solution is as given, align the axis of your solar panels N-S, or move to a higher orbit.
