  1. It can calculate multiple trajectories, so you can figure out the optimum earth departure date for a Venus flyby and return. Porkchop plots are one way, so you'd need to do a lot of trial and error to get to the same result. But I find KSPTOT impenetrable and I've never worked out how to use it properly, so I resort to winging it, usually with spectacularly awful failures and a lot of Kerbals ...uuuh, "enjoying life long orbital observation of Venus"
  2. [x]Science has a feature to 'show experiments available on this vessel'. It's very useful for figuring out which parts do what experiment (and finding out that you have 15 redundant magnetometers).
  3. Science progression is notoriously hard to balance given the way the tech tree game mechanic is built. You zoom through the early nodes in a few launches then it slows to a long grind for the late game stuff. I typically play with 50% science returns then ramp it up to 80% for the later game (basically once you get beyond your first Jool flyby). Bureaucracy basically adds a funding cap, which in the early game does encourage lots of cheaper launches (Thors and whatnot) to maximise your returns within available time & budget. KCT on the other hand essentially adds a time restriction, so you can't simply launch multiple cheap rockets in one day. Combine the two and the game can get quite challenging, at least until you reach a certain threshold. I recommend playing with the History of Spaceflight contract pack (pocket edition is sufficient), as it chimes well with SSS & BDB.
  4. Reminder to self: add to wiki Let me know if you think there's any other specific bits missing from the guides.
  5. Share my trade secrets? Never! But yes, its just a bunch of KVV images and judicious use of the offset tool. KVV works fine in the latest version of KSP, although it doesn't like module depth mask so the images sometimes need a little touching up in paint.net to fill in resulting blank spots.
  6. Not yet. Craft files and build guides will follow Soon™. There's a video a page or two back in the meantime that helps.
  7. Prime suspect is Outer Wilds Program, given it's another planet pack running alongside KSRSS I'd imagine that might cause a conflict.
