  1. Has anyone noticed that staging "disappears" on the left side of the screen after using this mod even with unstaged stages?  I was coming back from Eeloo after using five warp and when I got close to Kerbin I went to stage my reentry capsule and that's when I noticed the entire stage tree on the left was gone.  I had right click my decoupler to detach.  My parachute stage was also missing.  I had to manually right click each one and then click deploy.

    This was the first time using Better Time Warp.  I'm going to do another quick mission and see if I can duplicate the issue again.  If so, I'll post a log.

  2. I actually like Dres because of the canyon. Would be neat to build a surface colony that overlooks the canyon.


    But, I think the terrain features on all the planets are pretty boring. With no life, they are just rocks after all.

  3. In CKAN, it doesn't show compatibility with KSP 1.12.  Does it currently work with that version of KSP?


    Plus I just recompiled the assets using Unity 2019.4.18f1 LTS and .NET 4.7.2 --> which will be used in the adoption release coming shortly. I did some live streaming of testing (YouTube and Twitch) if you want to see it in action.

    I didn't read your last post close enough.

    I'd tend to disagree. If you've ever built a space station and had a dedicated solar array, you'll know what I mean.

    But anyway, what I think is the least useful part in the game is the CH-J3 Fly by wire avionics Hub. I have never once used it. The sad part is though, it  does look cool, and a part that extends SAS capability to non-SAS capable probes (Stayputnik, I'm looking at you) would be very useful if it was not shaped like a nose cone.

    I use the fly by wire quite a bit in mid career mode so I can just send scientists to other planets/moons alone so they can reset experiments.

  5. Thank you for the well thought out reply!  Now I understand how Astrogator is calculating the transfer "point" a bit better.  I can understand how it would be a bit tough to determine how "best" to determine what tolerance you should give Astrogator before it picks the next transfer point.  Perhaps if one clicks the Astrogator warp button on the pad, then the "optimal" transfer could be calculated within 10 - 30 minutes after clicking the warp button and coming out of warp?  That would give a transfer point that makes sense with the launch.

    At any rate, I'll give your other mod a try as well.  I really like how simple Astrogator is to use.  It's going to be hard to switch away!  

  6. Loving this mod!

    I have noticed one odd thing.  If sitting on the pad and warping to the launch window desired, when you get into orbit, it doesn't give you the launch window you'd expect.  It gives you a much further launch window into the future.  For example, sitting on the pad, it showed Jool had a launch window in 40 days so I hit "warp" from the Astrogator window.  I then launched at the end of warp and got to orbit but now, once in orbit, it's showing Jool has a launch Window in 1 year and 40 days into the future.

    Shouldn't it be smart enough to know I already warped to the correct launch window and don't want to wait another year and a half?

  7. Maybe I'm using it wrong but I can't figure out how to always get the green bar to show full for some experiments.  It does for some, but then others it doesn't.  For some experiments, I'm left with a partially full (or empty) blue bar even after running the experiment.  For example, I have "Show Experiments available right now" selected.  I'm currently in low orbit at Eve with a Materials Bay.  The science window says "Materials study in space near Eve 0/224".  But I've run the experiment and kept the data.  Shouldn't that fill up the bar?

    I also have "Complete without Recovery selected".  

    Also, how do you "run experiments at the click of a button" as posted in the OP?  I don't see an option for this anywhere. 

    Ha, I didn't see the little indicator icon right below the "X".  Man oh man.  So pushing that and doing the science from in that window (Here and now!) begins to fill up the blue bars in "Science" window.

  8. Is there an up-to-date tutorial anywhere?  I'm having a hard time getting started.  The video posted in the OP is 7 years old.  It took me an hour to figure out that the screwdriver needed in the written tutorial on the WIKI was from a different mod.  Shouldn't KIS/KAS be dependencies when installed via CKAN?

    Its also unfortunate (for me learning the ropes anyway) that the name of this mod is the exact same as a real life Mars rover.  When doing a search for “Kerbal Pathfinder” on YouTube, you get the original 7 year old mod review posted in the OP, then a TON of rover how-to tutorials that have nothing to do with the mod and are useless.  A name like “Wagoner” or “Land Thief” or even “Pilgrim” would have made YouTube searches a hell of lot better.  

    Ill keep plugging along. Seems like an amazing mod!

  9. So it seems to be an issue for me when I use radial engines and ship design.  If I don't have the the COT behind the COM (or on top of it) in the VAB, I get the fluttering.

    Here is a simple ship example when the problem happens:  




    This is a simple test design for an asteroid puller tug.   So I can move the engines down behind the COM and that seems to work.  But the issue will be when I latch onto a asteriod, the COM will move behind the engines again.

    Also, is it normal for MJ to disable SAS when I have it execute a Maneuver Node?  I've noticed SAS is turned off when its doing this.


  10. Any reason why Mechjeb is not creating the proper interplanatary node for the DV required?  For example, I'll do a porkchop plot to Duna from Kerbin with lowest DV selected, and it shows something like 1058 DV.  However, when I hit create node, it will create a node with 2 or 3 thousands delta V instead.  Sometimes it create the node properly with the correct DV but then others its not right at all.

    The planner seems buggy in general.  A lot of times I'll get a failed messaged with something like "Ejection optimization failed...".

    Do it like you do an Duna mission, note that you will need to do more adjustment burns as you get close as you are after an part and not an planet. 

    And it was Ike, had it kick out an capsule I rescued an kerbal from around Duna once, luckily I was on Duna and rescued him but saw an ship in solar orbit and wondered that it was, well it was an single capsule who name matched the kerbal now at Ike. 

    Yup, I was able to get it done.  Had to tweak the maneuvers quite a bit but was able to finally get the part and bring it back home.
