  1. Thank you for responding so quickly. I understand then. Almost feels like a shame. The limitations on data storage (requiring electric charge, and finite capacity) make for some interesting gameplay decisions. Hm... perhaps one rebalance to make them more enticing would be to have the hard-drives circumvent the need to conduct repeated experiments in the same biomes? i.e., for any given experiment, it first checks whether or not the data gathered would be enough to get all the science value for that experiment (if recovered) - if it would not, then either give a percent bonus data, or simply give full data. That way, it'd be more 'efficient' to store data on hard-drives, rather than having a couple experiment storage units doing 'collect all' and spamming the experiments. Idk; maybe that's a bit too powerful a bonus (particularly for non-resettable experiments); but considering you'd still need to conduct those experiments separately per biome, I feel it wouldn't break the game too much. (I'm looking at you, gravity scans... [for some planets/biomes, it can take 4+ scans to get full science value])
  2. First off, I just want to say I deeply appreciate this mod. The space telescopes are amazing fun to use. However, try as I might, I can't seem to find a justifiable reason to use the hard drives. This is likely user-error, as based on the responses from others in this thread, they *are* useful. I just don't see the real benefit. The Experiment Storage Unit seems to be superior in almost every regard, except the slight benefit of the hard drives being able to store duplicate experiments. But this seems massively out-weighed by the limitation of storage space (the storage unit having no such limitation). The explanation given just seems to cite the reasons why the storage unit is good - being able to collect all the data from your experiments, and store it for later transmission. Add on-top of that the power usage (which for ultra small craft could be quite substantial) and the unexplained 'data corruption' figure listed - I feel like I am missing something here. Could you perhaps explain?
