  1. More info...I may be onto something. I found this in the log: [LOG 14:17:33.743] Flight State Captured [ERR 14:17:33.749] Input is null for field 'agent' in config node 'CONTRACT_FINISHED' at System.Environment.get_StackTrace() at ConfigNode.AddValue(System.String name, System.String value) at Contracts.Contract.Save(.ConfigNode node) at Contracts.ContractSystem.OnSave(.ConfigNode gameNode) at ScenarioModule.Save(.ConfigNode node) at ProtoScenarioModule..ctor(.ScenarioModule module) at ScenarioRunner.UpdateModules() at ScenarioRunner.GetUpdatedProtoModules() at Game.Updated(GameScenes startSceneOverride) at GamePersistence.SaveGame(System.String saveFileName, System.String saveFolder, SaveMode saveMode, GameScenes startScene) at GamePersistence.SaveGame(System.String saveFileName, System.String saveFolder, SaveMode saveMode) at FlightAutoSave+<PersistentSave>c__Iterator0.MoveNext() at UnityEngine.SetupCoroutine.InvokeMoveNext(IEnumerator enumerator, IntPtr returnValueAddress) So, possibly a busted contract?
  2. I've got a related problem. I've had no problem finding green sandstone on Minmus. The way I find them is to first send a small unmanned 'hopper' lander and land near the edges of the greater and lesser flats, then I take short hops around the edges. It is easiest when the sun is not very high in the sky, because then the shadows are easier to pick out. Once I have them located I send a manned mission and target the landing near the unmanned probe, and viola. I've picked up more than 6 in the last week, for different contracts. Now to the problem. The first two contracts were completed successfully, but after that, while I get the 150 science points upon returning to Kerbin, the contract says I have not completed the mission. I saw that someone else on a different forum was having a similar issue, but I didn't see any solution. Note that I realize _some_ missions require a new ship to be used for the contract, so I typically build a new one, but that hasn't made any difference, and the contract hasn't specified any other parameters, other than to return green sandstone to Kerbin from Minmus. Has anyone else here seen this? Have any suggestions? I forgot to mention, when I leave Minmus, and dock with my return ship, I _am_ going EVA, and doing 'Take data', and then getting into the return capsule. I see the data transfer to the return capsule. I just did his again...went to Minmus, landed, had my scientist go eva, found 'green sandstone', climbed on it, pulled up my kerbal's action menu. did the pickup, went back to my lander, got in, back to orbit, docked, did the eva to get data moved, got back to Kerbin, and the contract still hasn't been completed.
  3. I tried changing many things, like the toggle torque, and using the same keys I would use for translation controls...none of that works. I know it is somehow tied to the reaction wheels...
  4. In the last couple of weeks, if I use a rovemate as the base for my rovers, I've noticed that if I use W to accelerate forward, my rovers nosedive and try to roll over forward, and when I brake, they roll backwards. I'm NOT talking about the wheels rolling in the right direction, I'm talking about the whole rover! Has anyone else seen this?
  5. I just discovered another fault...I know this mod is not supported/released for it, I'm running ksp 1.6.1...I love the configurable containers mod, and I too have seen the symmetry isse (note when I try greater than 2x, the mirrored parts seem to be offset in the wrong direction,,,they appear "in the floor of the VAB") it also breaks the per stage delta-v information, and the burn time calcs as well (the burn "bar" next to the nav ball is always red, even with full tanks and a short burn).
  6. Not sure if this is the place to make suggestions or not, but here goes. I would like to be able to uninstall lab equipment...sure maybe it can't be re-installed, but you could then use a single module to do all of them. Also, I've got a suggestion for a new experiment..."foamed metal"...metal is brought to a molten state in micro-G, then a gas is bubbled through the liquid as it is cooled, to form a much lower density item with most of the structural strength of the original metal. After a few experimental passes, perhaps release a foamed metal processing unit to produce light weight panels and or tubes, on orbit, for bigger construction projects.
  7. I've got a suggestion. I'm not sure if this is the right place or not. I'd like a 'crew' tab or crew info window, available in flight. Something that lists info on each kerbonaut, possibly just on the currently active vessel. It can list some simple info, like name, class (pilot, engineer, scientist), current mission time in space/on orbit, total number of missions, and total time in space. It would help with knowing which to rotate out of a station etc.

  9. I've still got problem with the SEP station not staying put. I downloaded the latest in a KSP 1.6 install. I did a couple of missions to deploy one at Kerbin's northern ice shelf and one at the southern ice shelf. I went back to the northern installation to collect data, and as soon as the scene loaded, the central station started bouncing up and down, then exploded. Note I did attach the modules to the ground _without any tools_.
  10. Nope...I'm in science not career, about half way through the tech tree, and all facilities are marked as fully upgraded.
  11. Has anyone else seen the orbital control icons next to the navball disappear...other than the stability assist icon? It could be an incompatible mod, but I'm not sure which one(s) might be involved. At first I thought perhaps it was because I had 'Dragable Navball" installed, but I uninstalled it and they are still missing. Of course it is probably some other issue, but could be something left behind?
  12. Anyone know if this will get updated for 1.6.x any time soon?
  13. I checked the forums, but have not found anything similar to this. Running 1.5.1, with a bunch of mods. Upgraded KIS yesterday, and now, I attach radial decouplers with 4 way symmetry, but when I try to attach fuel tanks using the same symmetry mode, I only get 1. SRBs are still working, but not fuel tanks. I have not tried any other parts yet. Has anyone seen this? Additional info. 2 way symmetry is partially working...I put on two radial decouplers using symmetry, I can put on two tanks, BUT the physical offset of the one on the "back" is to the connector facing the central tank instead of the outer one. If I don't use a decoupler, the tanks go where they belong. If I change to 3, 4, 6 or 8 way, the decoupler attaches to the central object (tank) just fine, but I when I attempt to attach tanks to those decouplers, I only get one tank. Also, with 3,4,6 or 8 way symmetry, even without the decouplers, I only get one. Here is my mod list: [x] Science!

Attaching tanks to tanks works just fine in 2x symmetry, decouplers themselves work with 2x, 3x, 4x, 6x, and 8 x symmetry, but nothing (other than engines) will attach in any of the radial decouplers in any symmetry mode other than 2x.

  14. I was able to reproduce the heat shield disconnection. I don't know why this is happening now (when it hasn't previously) but the stack separator crashed into the heat shield, causing a "structural failure on linkage between Heath Shield (2.5m) AND MK1-3 Command Pod". It will take a while for me to reproduce the other (original failure) as I will have to rebuild a station to test it on.
  15. I'll give that a try, and get some screen shots as well. Probably in the next day or two. I did notice an additional one, very similar, with a new vessel. I was in reentry, I had a standard mk3 command pod with a 2.5m heat shield, then a decoupler below that. When I staged the decoupler, the heat shield came lose as well. I am using KIS/KAS. Definitely _not_ still attached and just looking detached...I was not able to transfer fuel from the disconnected part to other parts not disconnected, and I was able to switch to the disconnected parts as a separate vessel. And now, things like heat shields are disconnecting from items they are directly attached to, when a stack decoupler on the other side of the heat shield is staged.
