  1. I seem to have found a small problem. When looking at any planet it seems to use the sun direction that comes to your ship. so when looking next to the sun at jool i see only night at jool, when it should be full day there. Notice in the image that jool has the same Crescent shape as the Mun. Same thing happens with Duna.

    What did you do in KSP today?

    24 years is a very long time since when i made the config setting the problems occured in less than 4 years. Also the L4 and L5 Points are infact perfectly stable if there only is 2 bodies doing gravity(kerbin and mun). But in my system there is kerbin, mun, olei, minmus and olemut, in order of most important i Think. I had to put minmus in a 5/2 resonance with the mun in order for olei to not mess up minmus, so i Think that i have used up all stable orbits to put nightmare in so i might put it in kerbins L4 point instead. Sidenote, i launched some cubesats the other day on random orbits in the kerbin system and some "survived" in stable orbits, so i could perhaps use one of those orbits to Place nightmare in. Only problem is that principia dont like when objects get too Close so they might not work since they were Close to kerbin, but i might launch more cubesats and try to find better orbits…. Also, if you want to use it with stock the only problem is jool, and on the mod page there is a fix for that so dont worry about having to deal with all the weirdness i am giving myself.

    Since I use principia and principia allows for multiple reference frames, there is a special one for rendezvous. It clearly shows the orbital path relative to the target, Making it easy to get very Close. This orbit is actually just a regular elliptical orbit with an encounter at apoapsis ~1.5 orbits ahead. Sidenote: After 24 years of harmony mun kicked out nightmare from its orbit(the muns L4 point). I got very sad becauce i had placed it there when I started with this mod a month or so ago becauce i thought it would be stable. And now it turns out that it is not. And it messed up my relay sat in the process.

    If you want I can send the modified config files i made to have it not blow up instantly if you use principia.

    (footnote: it was an eventful day with lots of Pictures so they are in spoilers to not clutter up everything.) Today was one of those days where you want to do something simple but then something goes wrong and then you need to send like 3 other missions to fix it and so on... The first mission was the usual "go and orbit around Nightmare and then come home again" contract. Since i already had a sattelite there i decided to send a lander there. The lander had a science container that would detach and fly home and dock with the space station and get me alot of science. I forgot to fix the inclination before i arrived but luckely the n-body physics helped me get a close periapsis for free. Then i got the valuable science. Then i realized that the contract wanted me to land it on kerbin again, and i didnt have a parachute… And the station also didnt have a docking port of the right size. I managed to solve both problems at once by sending a module to the space station that had a docking adapter with some small ports aswell. It also carried a parachute with a docking port on it. The problem was that the parachute occupied the port that was supposed to connect to the station. So i had to do a whole bunch of docking and undocking and weirdness to get it all to work but it was a happy ending at least. I also sent a rover to vall. It was low on fuel so i had to bleed of the last 50 m/s using the wheels. Many quickloads for that one, hehe. I am proud of the look of that rover.

    I did a couple of things today: First I sent the first module of this games first space station, the Kerbolata station. Then I went to duna for the first time and got a lot of juicy science. The lander had a bit less dv than needed so poor bob had to use his jetpack to get back to the mothership. Then I docked the duna ship to the new station and used its lab to get more science than i know what to do with. I also made a "Spud" Spaceplane to work as a ferry to the station. It needs a bit of tweaking as it has ~80 dv when in orbit making reandevuos difficult. Also i need to get some people down from there as every kerbal except one engineer is in that station at the moment. Luckely the spaceplace has capacity for 6...

    Seems that Olei managed to give the Mun a case of high inclination syndrome due to n-body weirdness… http:// Now it will be much harder to use the mun as a gravity assist in order to get to the other moons... Luckely i am quite done with the Kerbin system anyway. Here i come Jool!!!

    Mun slingshots.

    Yes that is correct. The entire trip took ~840dv for lko ejection and 220dv for mun injection, so ~1060dv total. Today i managed to improve it somewhat to need ~840dv lko ejection and with only 10dv correction ended up on a circular psudo-orbit around mun. The image only shows the final result, not the departure becauce that is similar to the previous image. The yellow line is where i have been before, and as you can see it comes from outside the mun, that is becauce i flinged myself way out to the edge of kerbins soi and did a small correction there.

    Mun slingshots.

    With n-body physics you can do mun to mun assists and save a bunch of deltav This trip from lko to circular mun orbit took only 220 deltav(after the initial ~800 from lko), i know that i can optimize it to an elliptic mun orbit with 0 deltav but that is for another day... N-body orbits are fun stuff

    Using Nievis for gravity-assist was hard becauce… well... The Mountains also didnt show on the map either so...

    Today in my careermode I first flew a Apollo style ship to mun,minmus,olei and olemut.(yes I am using mods... GPO to be precise.). Did some funky n-body maneuvers for fun and profit. Then i launched Timmy 1&2 for minmus and mun respectivly to complete some sattelite contracts. Timmy 2 was fun becauce i used a resonant orbit to do mun insertion with almost no deltav. n-body physics is fun stuff. 220 deltav for 50km mun insertion, thats qiute good right? ps. how do you do so that images show without having to go to imgur??

    [1.4.3] Gameslinx's Planet Overhaul v3.4.0

    I fixed Everything with the configfiles. Now i am having a completely unrelated problem: The oluum system is extremely unstable. https://imgur.com/a/12N5KsU And yes. Telos and Vulcaine collided… Update: https://imgur.com/a/l7F0RKq

    [1.4.3] Gameslinx's Planet Overhaul v3.4.0

    I fixed it by having the old 1.3 configs and copying in the 1.4 gullis file and then manually changing the orbit to what it was in the 1.3 version ps. what other bodies need the 1.4 configs instead of the 1.3 ones?
