  1. I've been looking forward to this release, thank you for making such an awesome mod. Is the bug that caused crashes when you had several gravity assists on one flight path fixed? My campaign's been stalled at 1977 with several probes launched onto a grand tour. Can RSS Expansion (https://github.com/PhineasFreak/RSSExpansion) be added to an ongoing save game?

    [WIP][1.3] PersistentThrust v1.0.9

    Is this working in ksp 1.3.1? When I tried this with the ion engine (realism overhaul), it continues to consume fuel, but doesn't actually produce thrust during time warp.
  3. I changed a setting that make the recoloring GUI feature remember the last color scheme used. I'd like to set it back to default, but I can't remember where it's configured.

    [1.4.4] RemoteTech v1.8.12 [2018-07-17]

    I grabbed the CC_remotetech.dll from the latest release of CC (compiled for ksp 1.4.x and RT 1.8.10 if my memory serves me) and I'm getting the contracts now. Not sure if it's working properly though, I just put up 4 sats in geostationary orbit, each with a parabolic dish and omni antennas. The "Direct connection to Comm Sat xx" requirement isn't being satisfied (can the direct connection be achieved with omni's so the dish can be freed up to point at Earth or at active vessels?), and the communication coverage just fluctuates between 0% and 20%.

    [1.4.4] RemoteTech v1.8.12 [2018-07-17]

    I'm running the 1.8.1.131 version for ksp 1.3 linked above. Does anyone know how to get the contracts to work with contract configurator? Is there a specific CC_remotetech.dll file I need?
  6. RO configs aren't up to date for SSTU.

    [1.4.2] Contract Configurator [v1.25.0] [2018-04-15]

    Is this version reverse compatible with 1.3.1?
  8. You can set the boil off rate or turn it off all together on SSTU tanks in the game settings menu (where you adjust difficulty)
  9. @Starwaster I fell in love with it after watching this, it's such a good vid, better than NASA's promotional material. It takes some tinkering to build, the HAB and detachable supply module have to be assembled backwards, then rotated and translated, and the docking port for the reloadable fuel truss had to be mounted to the truss instead of the propulsion module. I made a pretty tight looking assembly, but i haven't tested for collision problems during orbital assembly, ran into issues before w/ the sstu weldable docking ports (they'd always revert to their default size), trying Bahamuto's copernicus docking rings now. Are you planning on updating your Heat Pump mod for ksp 1.3.1? I tried solving the boil off problem by capturing the escaping hydrogen and reliquifying it with an ISRU refrigeration unit powered by the nuclear engines, but it stops working at high time warp. I really need Heat Pump lol.
  10. Thanks! Finally got my SSTU Mars Copernicus vehicle, in its full 10 meter diameter glory. If it's not too much trouble, there's one more thing I'd like to inquire about. I've added the Adapter-Dome-A/B tank camps from the MUS tank to the MFT (they're really nice models, and I think you should make them a standard option), anyway I'd like to add an interstage node to the top of the tank like the one at the bottom. I thought it'd be pretty straight forward with the SSTUSelectableNodes module, I tried adding a top node and even followed the exact convention in the (experimental) MFT Service Module part, which has selectable top and bottom nodes (I noticed the MUS tank is a bit different, and the selectable nodes are referenced in the MUS module). The new selectable interstage node would occur in the middle of the tank instead of at node_stack_noseInterstage = 0,1,0,0,1,0,2. I'm guessing there's more to the SSTUSelectableNodes module than meets the eye. *edit* a selectable top node would really come in handy when using the hemi-spherical end caps too.
  11. I'm looking to rescale SSTU-ST-HAB-C1, but if the RCS jets and solar panels need to be manually repositioned, I'd just go for SSTU-ST-HAB-C3 which lacks those features. I've checked the RO patches, but these parts were never patched. I've gotten the end caps resized by changing the SSTU_Model height and diameter, but can't figure out how to rescale the inflatable portion.
  12. I'm trying to rescale some of the habitat/station core parts for my game, but not having much luck. I've tried making a MM patch to change the rescaleFactor, but that doesn't seem to do anything. Do I need to change something with the modeldata scales or dimensions instead?
  13. Is there a way to increase the size of the UI? It's quite illegible at 4k resolution.
