  1. Thanks for the replies, once again. What about the message I receive stating " Fusion Reactor plasma heating can not be guaranteed "? From my understanding, fusion need a large amount of power to start the reaction, but once it is already going, it is self sufficient. Because the reactor could be started in the editor, on launch, I imagine that would not be a problem, but I still do not understand the error. Thanks -- edit This is what I have. I threw up a bunch of solar panels to get energy from the sun. I can't seem to run the reactor unless I already have a store of MJ. For all intents and purposes it doesn't seem to be making energy, just taking it
  2. What is NTO fusion mode? On the Muon reactor, the only fusion modes I have is CNO cycle, proton-Deuterium, and proton-proton-proton fusion What can I store helium? The spherical cryo tanks? The only one I've spotted that sports just helium is the Mk10-XL airbag. Would liquid helium work for this? And on this note, is HE4=liquid helium=helium? Then what is HE3? How would I collect helium while in flight? I've tried to throw together, in this order, magnetic scoop, command pod, ISRU refrigerator, wrapped radiator, Muon reactor set to CNO, spherical tank with HE4, big sphere tank with LH2, bussard engine. I can't seem to make fuel I think I had figured it out, however I am always receiving the error saying Fusion Reactor plasma heating can not be guaranteed. What does this mean and how can I rectify it? Additionally another question, regarding batteries. I understand 1k energy=1mw, but I'm a bit unsure as to the purpose to some of the batteries. IFS Capacitor stores energy and MW, and converts between the two, so do I need this if anything on my craft uses both energy and MW? The Lithium air battery, I don't understand at all. What is KwH used for? Thank you!
  3. I have a few questions that I haven't been able to find much about on. I've gathered the basics of how to manage waste heat, but I don't understand how ISRUs and refueling reactors work. Just some questions in no particular order... How do ISRUs work? Reactor control panel is very confusing, and it doesn't seem to be obvious what stuff is needed to make what other stuff, and what containers you need onboard to store the in and outputs.. Aside from fuel type, what is the diffidence between the Bussard, Daedalus, Kerbstein Fusion, and Vista engine? What do I need to do to be able to refuel the above engines? Where do I mine/how do I make solid hydrogen, fusion pellets, lithium hydride, and LH2/deurerium/tritium? What do I need to do to be able to refuel reactors? I tried to throw a stellarator reactor on with an EM drive, and I didn't get very far until the reactor ran out of power.. Without using a solar sail or a warp drive, I haven't the slightest idea on how to make a ship that has the power to go to another star and refuel, or be self sustaining...
