    FPS > Hz?

    You brother-in-law is heavily underestimating the power of the human eye. The human eye has tens of millions of stems, while a 1080p screen has only a bit more than 2 million pixels. I've yet to see the first screen that seems like a window, instead of a projected image. There are still a lot of gains to be made.
  2. I think there is a bug with one of your Soyuz-FG boosters, it just explodes when the Soyuz-MS fairing decouples from its stage. Couldn't get a log file, sorry
  3. @Lisias, the problem with that attitude is that it can allow for all sorts of modding derivatives (up to and including simple logo changes to show that the original mod is now 'mine') to spawn without the original modder knowing about it. Everybody that has ever dealt with videogame mods knows that plagiarism is rampant in that community, and that easily finding the original source of a mod is not a given. Asking for it allows the licensee to check whether what they invision is indeed allowed under the license, and it in turn allows the licensor to keep an overview of what is out there, and makes it easier for all parties to look out for stolen/plagiarised stuff. The transparency and etiquette of the KSP modding community is a needle in a haystack (when was the last time you downloaded a mod for another with a clear license and source code included in the download?), and we should cherish and nurture it. Communication between all parties has brought us this far and has more often then once defused "permission or not?" discussions. Asking for permission, even though it is not necessary in view of the licensee, is a small effort that can save a lot of time and energy down the road.
  4. Cafeine won't help you. You'll get a rush, but it won't make you "un-tired". Best way is to go forward with your daily tasks like usual, and don't think to much about your sleep deprivation. Your body will adapt itself quite rapidly once you're being a busy bee at work. Just take your 8 hours tonight and you'll be fine. Good luck at work!
  5. @hraban Just blocking them in Janitors Closet doesnt keep them from loading, but if you use the “PermaPrune” feature in Janitor’s Closet, it stops the parts from loading by renaming the files to a “.prune”-file. You can save a lot of RAM that way @CobaltWolf Don’t forget to give The Cacteye telescope some love!

    [1.4.5] Space Shuttle release 17.09.2018

    Thanks for updating it Will it be possible to re-release DECQ's Buran at some point as well?
  7. @Tonka CrashThat base looks amazing by the way, which mods did you use besides KPBS?
  8. About the Polyus-issue: I would just make a new scientific experiment called “log ionosphere” , and call it a day. Lasers are invisible in space anyway so animations are unneccessary, and Polyus actually did have plenty of scientific value. (And lets not forget that most space technology has a military twin). I also agree with my co-posters that we shouldn’t militarize Tantares, so the anti-ICBM side of Polyus can be safely ignored, just like we can ignore the Space Shuttle as a nuclear delivery vehicle By the way, can anyone recommend me some good books about Mir? Russian-language is fine
  9. Actually, 10 J-93's would be overkill According to NASA, If you just only bolt on 6 of the J-93's, you're good to go! https://imgur.com/7byEFXi

    [1.5.1] Cacteye Optics Community Takeover

    Any chance to tempt @akron to do his texturing magic on this? I get nostalgic just thinking about this jewel. https://imgur.com/a/MvTe2OP
  11. What museum is that? Seems like a great place to visit when in Moscow
  12. I use the small SRB's (like Castor-120) combined with the Taerobee and Agena to launch my contractual small probes. On the contrary, I just usually don't bother with small liquid fueled engines below AJ-10 size. That includes vernier thrusters (why bother when you have unlimited reaction wheel inertia, with 100% reliability?). I am pretty bummed out that pruning them through Janitor's Closet keeps me from building replica's, but with only 4GB of RAM you gotta do what you gotta do
  13. Hey guys, for some reason Transfer Window Planner and the transfer planner in Kerbal Alarm Clock won’t recognize my OPM+Sigma planets, and only show the stock planets. Any one else had this problem? EDIT: It appeared deleting and re-installing OPM+Sigma and their dependencies solved all my problems. Probably a corrupted file or something simple like that
  14. Damn, I guess I finally have to upgrade to 1.4
