  1. To answer your questions: I am playing on an Xbox 1S. When I say "accelerating", I mean somewhere around 1 m/s. It was enough so I couldn't fight it using my RCS. Everything was turned off. I even double-checked by pressing the "throttle-down" button. The RCS light was not on. I hope that clears things up a bit.
  2. I understand that at least 90% of my KSP forum posts are complaints about bugs, but this one is particularly annoying. Let's start at the beginning: I built and launched a simple space station. Lacking creativity, I named it Station One. After a few in-game years without trouble I decided to retire Station One. To service the station during its final missions and to assist in the construction of a new station, I built the Space Shuttle Kollumbia based of @ShadowZone's excellent 1.4 design (as console recently got the rough 1.4 update equivalent, the design worked perfectly: the shuttle completed a rigorous shakedown mission without fail). Problems started as soon as I rendez-voused with the station. Using the RCS jets, I maneuvered close to Station One's docking port. I decelerated to a halt. Suddenly, I began to accelerate in the radial out direction. My orbital velocity stayed the same, but my relative velocity was changing against the station. I checked the map view and my orbit was elongating. I switched off my RCS and engines, but I kept accelerating. I ended up reverting the flight. This spontaneous acceleration now occurs during about 50% of my docking attempts (and only during rendezvous, nowhere else. Can anyone help?
  3. I should have clarified. Here are the updated rules: 1) No ISRU 2) No landers, must be direct ascent only 3) Must have a kerbal onboard
  4. You have likely seen one of the Single Stage to Anywhere missions by now. An SSTO with a drill and resource converter that has basically unlimited range. My challenge: Build a multistage rocket that can land on as many planets and moons as possible. No ISRU allowed. Have fun!
  5. I tried again and it didn't work. I tried decoupling two pods, then I pressed LB + view. Unless I'm doing something wrong, it hasn't worked. I also tried planting a flag, but that didn't work, either.
  6. I'll try this tomorrow since the rest of my day is filled up. Thanks for all your help!
  7. Well, I tried it and it didn't work. LB + view didn't do anything, while RB + view turned off GUI. LB + RB + view toggled the map. What now?
  8. This is a dumb question, but what exactly is "tap view?"
  9. I have played KSP on my console for more than a year now. The new update is fantastic, as is the expansion. I, as always, have another problem. You know how when you target a craft, a little green square shows up on the craft? They are gone.
  10. Taught my elderly mother how to build and fly a rocket. She managed a suborbital flight, to my surprise. Sorry I don't have a picture, but I can describe the rocket: 1x 3 kerbal pod w/ parachutes heatshield decoupler rockomax-16 tank skiff engine
