  1. That's a shame about the robotic parts - a lot of people seem to be really enjoying them so I'm surprised that they're so buggy. Thanks for your advice I'm mostly using EVA construction to move things - it really helps in fixing mistakes or reconfiguring ships quickly for a new task. I'm currently disassembling the rover for an EVA construction contract - another rover needs wheels, and the original one will be sent home to be replaced with my updated design.
  2. Wow, that's a real tug! Are you using the breaking ground pack?
  3. Thanks for all of your answers Replies are below - in the end I adjusted the craft and yes, the wheels were very poorly aligned. Thanks, those are some handy tips - I'll assign them to action keys and test them out. For now I'm keen to work with stock parts. This was on level ground, it didn't speed up much going downhill either. Hard data would be great! Absolutely - it's a monstrosity, I really just slapped some wheels on some extra tanks slapped onto a rescue lander And here's the updated version - not much different, but far more effective. Could you post some shots of your rovers?
  4. Thanks! Are you just using four S2 wheels? It did seem strange.
  5. Is there anywhere I can find the individual power of each rover, similar to how each engine has thrust? This would help greatly with rover design. I've currently got a 10 ton rover with 4 Rovemax M1 rover wheels and it only reaches 2-3 m/s on Mun - is possibly a misalignment issue or do I simply have too few wheels? I understand that friction can also have an impact, but for now I'm looking for rule-of-thumb values.
  6. Thanks for all of the good suggestions - I really enjoy the stock game and its challenges but I've been eyeing off KAS for a while. The EVA resource transfer mod is news to me
  7. Hi, I was wondering if it's possible to connect a fuel line between two spacecraft using EVA construction? I tried this with Jeb holding a fuel line in his inventory but the part wouldn't sick when attaching to the second crest, regardless of which craft I put it on first. Does it require connecting the craft with a grabbing claw first?
  8. For those who are interested, I ended up getting a Legion 5 and it is great - even a 700+ part craft flew without issue (though the frame rate was around 15-30 fps on low quality graphics while launching from Kerbin). There was no slowdown in responsiveness. For maximum quality graphics and a100-200 part craft I was seeing 40-70 fps. For low quality graphics I was seeing 120+ fps. The specs are: Lenovo Legion 5 AMD Ryzen 7 4800H 16GB RAM 512 GB SSD RTX 2060 15.6" IPS 120 Hz (1920x1080 FullHD) - max brightness is 250 nits, for some this might be a little dark. Happy computer buying
  9. Hi! I've started using a gamepad to better control my rockets and rovers Is there any way to turn on vibrate or rumble feedback? Is this something that's supported in-game? I would love to have it work for contact with the ground, as well as rapid acceleration, like the screen wobble. It'd add a great element to the game. Cheers, Adam
  10. Thanks for the clarification here - I'd read about the IPC but couldn't find anything concrete. I'm sold on the AMD Thanks for the ultra-clear and detailed explanation. I have been reading through this thread as well as various benchmark sites for weeks but couldn't quite understand the differences. Today I'm looking to get last year's tech (4xxx for Ryzen or 10xxx for Intel) as the price is slowly dropping with new tech being introduced. This thread has delivered once again Have a great day!
  11. Thanks! It's a bit out of my budget but I've heard good things about them. I was curious about Ryzen 7 (2.9-4.2GHz) vs Intel i7 (2.6-5.0GHz) - do you have any thoughts on which is superior? Thanks! It's that for general use? The i7 has a much higher speed (2.6-5.0GHz vs 2.9-4.2GHz) so I'd assume it's better for Kerbal but not as good for other things (6 vs 8 cores). Legion 5s with Ryzens are somehow cheaper than with i7s in Poland at the moment.
  12. Hi everyone! This thread is pretty amazing - I'm looking at a new laptop in general and I've already gotten a lot of good info for what suits Kerbal. I'd be grateful for your recommendation - I'll be getting a Lenovo Legion 5 and am tossing up between a Ryzen 7 4800H (2.9-4.2GHz) and i7 10750H (2.6-5.0GHz). I know that single core speed is the most important for Kerbal, but I'm wondering if the i7 is worth it as the Ryzen 7 seems to seriously outperform it in other areas. The rest of the specs are: RAM: minimum 16GB Memory: minimum 512 GB SSD Graphics: minimum GTX 1650, possibly GTX 1660 Ti. RTX 2060 is available but it seems like overkill Display: 15.6" IPS 120 Hz 250 nits (1920x1080 FullHD), possibly 144Hz 300 nits Has anyone used a similar setup? Which processor do you think is best for Kerbal, or would there be little difference? Thanks, Adam
