    Unfortunately that's a Contract Configurator problem (this isn't me passing the buck, I know that contract is written correctly, because I use it myself all the time) - if it's not completing that means KSP/CC is having an issue.

    I think it may be written wrong. I have the same problem with the basic Orbit Kerbin contract. But here's the catch - I completed the first part of the contract with a probe that never returned back. The second part I planned to complete with a proper manned pod, but it did not register as complete. Now, mattssheep4 says the screenshot comes from his second vessel used to complete his contract too. If you take a look you'll notice that the Vessel: Orbit (TBD) is not checked. I guess this means that the contract does not recognize this ship as having the Orbit key assigned. I tried to figure out Contract Configurator syntax for just a few hours so far, so I may be wrong, but I think the problem is within the first part. Once it is completed by some other vessel, it will not execute on consecutive attempts (?), so no other vessel will get the Orbit key. The whole contract works correctly only if the same vessel completes both parts. 

    BTW, how do you insert these blue profile names into text?


  2. Hi, 

    talking of Gemini - TRAILS mod was released recently with some nice Gemini style parts. However, two pods that come with it are not pressurized in Kerbalism and scrubber is not required for some reason. I'd like to try to write Kerbalism configs for them and add those. Is there some tutorial or template that shows how to configure a pod for Kerbalism?

    As all engines are modeled after Titan rocket family engines, I made configs that resemble the originals.

    JLV-675 "Pallas" - modeled after LR87 main engine. I configured it to use LOX/RP1 with 1 ignition, NTO/A50 with 2 ignitions and LOX/LOH with 1 ignition. 

    JLV-250 "Lelantos" - modeled after LR91 upper stage engine.  I configured it to use LOX/RP1 with 1 ignition, NTO/A50 with 4 ignitions.

    JLV-T-51 "Metis" - modeled after AJ10 orbital engine. Only 36 kN of thrust despite being 1.875 m and double nozzled, but I left it like this. Comes with an integrated 700 l tank. I configured it as either NTO/A50 or NTO/MMH pressure fed engine with unlimited ignitions and no ullage (allows for a bit of cheating but low thrust will make it useless on a ship with huge tanks filled with fuel anyway). 

    RCS' can use a typical selection of monopropellants and hypergols.

    I very much like to hear the story behind this one :)

    The story is called Oh Scrap! Meets Kerbal Construction Time, starring a leaking nitrogen tank that was supposed to fuel RCS. Before the rescue vessel got to the orbit, the tank was empty, so no RCS control. This in itself wouldn't be a catastrophy, but the launch was so well timed and the Ap so well guessed that the stranded pod passed my ship by less than 2,3 km just before circularization burn (ending about 20 km away after the burn), which enabled resources consumption. In a last ditch effort I tried to use the main engine to fine tune the orbit but then I lost the signal, and since CommNet does not throttle down to 0 in such a case, my ship fell down back to Kerbin. I needed about 4 days to build another rescue vessel, by that time the batteries on the stranded pod went dead and Kerbal soon died due to CO2 poisoning. I then terminated this ship but the mission remained active. I had to terminate the mission manually. 

    IIRC if a rescued Kerbal dies during reentry, the mission fails automatically, so I was surprised it's not the case when it's Kerbalism death (not to mention ship termination that followed).

    Line 5969 is just saying what I already told you: It's being cut in half.  2300 * 0.5 = 1150. 1150 * 0.85 = 977.5 (skinMaxOperationalTemp)

    Yes, but I understood that 977.5 is too low and it should be 2300? So why does DE do this? You said it does it when if maxTemp is set over a certain value. I found this line just before ModuleAeroReentry is added to every part:

    [LOG 14:02:09.370] Using ridiculousMaxTemp = 1523.15 / maxTempScale =0.5

    1523.15 is indeed less then 2300. Is it supposed to be like this if 2300 is the maxTemp the chute should have (or do I get it all wrong)?

    maxTemp

    Which temp do you mean - maxOperationalTemp or skinMaxOperationalTemp? maxTemp for this chute is set to 2500 in Squad's config files. I can try to do some digging if you point me in the right direction. 

    EDIT: it seems DRE doesn't like Real Chute any longer. I created new Game Data folder, put there Squad folders together with DRE and ModuleManager410. Both temps were about 1070 K (so I dunno if that's OK either). Then I added Real Chutes to the Game Data folder and this resulted with temps as on my screenshot.  


  8. Here is a screenshot. I did not touch thermal settings, so I guess they are stock. Starting AP/PE was around 200k/0. As you can see the pod is at a slight angle to the reentry path. I do not have any means of controlling pod's attitude at this point in my games, so the pod literally crosses 70k at a 90 deg angle and aerodynamic forces soon turn it ablator side first (here I used a heat shield that comes with the pod, but with a separate heat shield the situation is only slightly better). At 40k the pod still wobbles slightly and the chute starts overheating whenever the pod is tilted more than just a few degrees from the flight path. 

    The point is - that's as standard vessel in KSP as they come and I never had any problems with chutes catching fire during reentry. I often use radial chutes with Mk1 later in the game and never had any problems with them or science instruments attached to the sides. Even goo pods, if attached close to the top, were inside "aerodynamic shadow" of the pod and were able to survive reentry (from a low orbit at least). I did not try this so far by I guess they will melt instantly now. 


  9. Hi, 

    with the latest version of the mod I have some serious trouble with reentry from my first orbital flight. The problem I have is that Mk16 parachute attached to the top node of Mk1 pod quickly overheats if there is a slightest wobble in pod's attitude. Unless the pod perfectly aligned with the reentry trajectory, the chute always melts. It's like the hot reentry gas flows attached to the pod. I never had this problem in earlier versions. Is this the way things should work in DR or should I look for a culprit among my other mods?

    Try to put a wait of a few seconds into the top of the boot script.  It sometimes will load the ship and let its PartModules start operating (like kOS) before KSP has finished loading up and populating Comnet fully.  Waiting 2 or 3 seconds should give commnet time to finish settting itself up.

    That's not it, I already do it. 

    But here is the thing - it always happens to me in Mun SOI, when I use my script that performs Mun orbit departure. The important part of code look like this:

    until vang(KERBIN:POSITION, MUN:POSITION) > 160 
    {
    	print "Angle: " + round(vang(KERBIN:POSITION, MUN:POSITION),2) + "     " at (0,10).
    }
    
    RCS ON.
    
    lock shipDptDir to ship:prograde + R(0,max(0, 2*(vang(ship:prograde:vector, kerbin:position)-90)),0).
    lock steering to shipDptDir.
    
    wait until vang(SHIP:FACING:VECTOR, shipDptDir:VECTOR) < 1.

    So it basically waits until the ship finds itself almost directly between the Mun and Kerbin, then rotates the ship prograde (with a small correction in case prograde points away from Kerbin) and the at vang > 175 initiates the burn (code not shown above). So up to RCS ON everything works fine, then (if there is no connection) the ship just stays motionless. Those little indicators for pitch, yaw and roll in the bottom left corner of the screen do not move at all, so it's not like the script tries to rotate the ship but can't, it simply does not try. So it looks like steering command is not executed properly. If the connection returns at some point, then steering starts doing it's job. 

    I also pasted the code above to a test script and used it as a boot file for a ship I put in Mun's orbit via a cheat in sandbox mode. With no connection the code executed correctly, which puzzles me even more. There is literally nothing in my script before this code that could affect steering IMO - the boot file just chooses the right file to execute (the one that contains this code) and there is one trigger that checks for engine flameout. Then it's the code above. 


  11. First, I must admit I'm not sure it's a kOS bug but anyway... The problem I have is that if a ship has no connection to the KSC when a script starts (e.g. via a boot file), then it can't control ship's attitude (at least via RCS and reaction wheels, a working gimballed engine will do the job AFAIR). I use CommNet, with PermitAll the problem does not occur. I saw someone's comment that that's CommNet's limitation and kOS can't do much about it, but the thing is everything works just fine if a script gets started with a working connection. Then, even if connection goes down during execution of the script, kOS retains control over ship's attitude. Anyone has the same problem?

    comfort is about the ability to move about a vessel without having to wear a space suit. As far as I know, they never put those suits off in mercury

    Technically, they didn't have to, it was a safety measure. In fact they kept they visors open and breathed capsule atmosphere. They couldn't put them off because the space was so cramped, also flight duration was so short there really was no need to. If pressurized in the STRESS tab is supposed to reflect crew's confidence in pressurization system, then I don't think any pod deserves higher notes. In fact the only death caused by depressurization occurred on Soyuz 11, an advanced design. 

    If it means that there is no pressurization system at all in the Mk1 pod, then there probably should be one, if you want to model it after the Mercury capsule, and it should use oxygen instead of nitrogen. If you don't, I'm fine with it anyway, as it is Kerbal Mk1 not the Mecury after all. However in both the crew window as in the capsule cutaway view one can clearly see that Kerbals wear no helmet during IVA. :-)

    Because it is modeled after the Mercury capsule, which was unpressurized.

    It had pure oxygen atmosphere at 340 mbar (so I guess the same as in Apollo capsule?). Had it been unpressurized, the space suit would have to be, which would make it too stiff to operate the craft.

    One is based on CommNet and will allow you to enter commands on the console only if the probe is online, the other one will always allow you to enter commands on the console, even on Vessels that aren't reachable.

    The problem with CommNet is not about access to the console but that with no connection kOS can't control RCS, reaction wheels and throttling (at least when you start the script when there is no connection, if it drops during execution of a script everything seems to work just fine). So if at some point your script needs to turn the ship in some direction it will wait for this to happen in vain. But once the connection is regained RCS and reaction wheels spring to life (usually it's all too late). So it seems that with CommNet kOS obeys the same rules as a player (limited or full control, depending on settings).

    EDIT: actually you're right, switching to PermitAll Connectivity Manager seems to solve the control problem, although now kOS allows to access the archive and run and edit scripts with no connection...

    If it provides any it is on, if it provides thrust but didn't before, that was an ignition. This works for stock engines

    So do I get it right that ATM you can't detect ignitions on RF engines, hence the burn time does not work?

    32 minutes ago, Sir Mortimer said:

    the folks at RealismOverhaul have two different alternatives to RT

    And what are these? Some separate mods? The only problem I have with Comm Net now is that to have kOS work with Comm Net you need to enable full control without the connection, which kinda contradicts the purpose of Comm Net. RT somehow allows kOS to have full control of the ship while obeying the connection rules for player input at the same time.

    they already do limited ignitions and burn durations.

    Only limited ignitions but no reliability stuff, which I'd like to have the way Kerbalism now implements it. I'd switch to Kerbalism completely but RF introduces some other nice features, like ullage (which is a must have for me now) and engine development. This last thing would work perfectly with Kerbalism's engine reliability - in RF as you progress through the Tech Tree you unlock higher engine tech levels, which increase thrust and isp of your already researched engines (and in theory new fuel configurations are possible too but I never saw an engine that used this feature). If you could somehow plug your numbers into that system, it would be freaking awesome (now rated burn time would increase too). 

    I really encourage you to take a look into possibility of making Kerbalism compatible with RF. What you guys do now would complement what RF already offers so nicely.
