  1. Is it normal that I cannot restore a previous save during the Munar 1 mission? This image is from right after I crashed again, but even before crashing, I could not go back to a previous save. I keep crashing on launching from the Mun, and can't restore from my in-orbit quick save. I can save the game as much as I like, but there is no load button. I"m pretty sure I was able to save and restore during some of the other Making History missions. But not this one. I am puzzled. Thanks for any clues.
  2. Specifically, place a fuel duct between the side of the tank and the inside floor of the SM25. That will connect the fuel flow to the engine.
  3. Is there any conflict between having ForScience and [x] Science! both installed and active at the same time?
  4. In my limited experience, automatic fuel flow for asparagus staging can be a real beast to set up, because it only works if you DON'T use symmetry when you originally added the tanks and engines. The fuel duct parts are a reliable means around this problem.
  5. @GRS, no updates from me, the remainder of this challenge is beyond the combination of my skills and how much time / effort I'm willing to invest in it.
  6. The game does its best to tell you what it thinks you want to know. It isn't always right.
  7. I never claimed it was efficient ("typical" was the word I used), and I also said said that there are infinite possibilities. I wasn't the one asking the question on this thread, just trying to be helpful. Needless badgering is one of the reasons that people avoid posting on the forums.
  8. Just getting above 70 km isn't sufficient information - how fast do you want to be going when you reach 70km? The rule of thumb is that you need 3400 m/s to get into low Kerbin orbit (80 km). A typical launch might use 2400 m/s to get an Ap of 80km, then a 1000 m/s circularization burn. There are an infinite number of variations possible.
  9. Do any of your probe cores have a built-in antenna? If not, did you add any antennas?
  10. @Xt007, you quoted my message, but didn't add any reply. Notepad++ here also. I don't use it as an IDE, but it is a very good code editor.
  11. I haven't been actively investigating this. Early on I tried some simple experiments to duplicate the issue from the original topic (i.e. sudden shifts away from the intended pitch curve), but I wasn't able to observe any abrupt departures from the planned pitch. The only curious thing I observed was that the rocket I designed also had pitch control saturation, but I chalked that up to the pitch curve being aerodynamically difficult for my specific rocket design to fly. I have seen PID integral windup before professionally. It was not a happy experience.
