    [1.3] USI Life Support [0.5.0]

    I think there's a small mistake in the wiki: https://github.com/UmbraSpaceIndustries/USI-LS/wiki/Example:-Mission-to-Duna In the Converters section, It says that one nom-o-matic 5000 would be enough to feed 3 kerbals on a x-days trip to Duna (along with the Lab). But if a kerbal consumes 10.8 supplies/day, or 5.4 with the help of the lab, he'd need 2 nom-5ks per kerbal, or 6 total.. The 6 nom5ks would consume about 34k of EC per day, and would need to run constantly, so he'd need to plan for that, taking into account day/night and orbit cycles. essential mod, btw! love it.

    What did you do in KSP today?

    Today I aborted my (2nd) career having just got back from a manned Duna mission, and started a new career with new mods: I was already using USI Life Support with Kerbal Planetary Bases System, but now I switched KPBS to USI MKS, figure its more of a challenge. I also added Scan Sat and the Outer Planets Mod, the Near Future mods, and the Unmanned Before Manned tech tree and all the respective contracts. I'm cheating all the Anomaly contracts I previously did cause frankly they're a pain to do twice. I tried that mod that makes you find and research a planet before you can go there, but it seemed a bit glitchy with the outer planets mod, so I scrapped that. Tomorrow I'm going away to spend the weekend at a friends. I'm taking KSP with me (yay laptop)
  3. Hyperedit 1.4.1 beta 3 on KSP 1.4.2 (mac) Hi there. 1st time using hyperedit. Great tool to test your ship before committing to a mission! Here's some feedback, hope its useful. If I hyperedit a single stage probe from Kerbin's launchpad to another planet's orbit (Duna in this case), everything works fine. If I do it with a ship with multiple stages everything works fine until I stage the ship. Then it starts glitching as described by mercaholic75, with the ship wiggling back and forth. I'm then also unable to set maneuver nodes, and if I burn the engine, the orbit on the map view doesn't seem to change. If I try to go to the space center at this point, it'll say that I can't exit with a ship moving on the ground. If I'm not mistaken, the staged part doesn't glitch. Just the main ship. Thanks for this awesome mod!

    I'm pretty sure I picked the right minipack. In any case I researched the grabber, grabbed Jeb's ship and thankfully was able to transfer him to the rescue ship which had edible supplies.

    [1.3] USI Life Support [0.5.0]

    hi Roverdude. Sorry, I don't usually bother modders but I couldn't find the answer anywhere: I just installed USI LS on 1.4.1, and sent jeb up in orbit in a capsule with a few Mini-packs, but he's starving and won't touch the things. He's wearing the non-orange suit so maybe that's one thing, but how do I make him eat the mini packs and return home? is this a 1.4.1 thing or did the mini packs go bad? I sent val up to help but then realized she aint no engineer (just installed kis/kas too). What a mess thanks for any help!
  8. Dayum! Anyway, thanks so much for this amazing mod, and for letting us know!
