    Rocketeer
  1. I had an issue in 0.25 and 0.90 with Mechjeb not working in a KSP fresh install (I am on Windows 8.1). The part showed up and could be put on a rocket but the button did not show up. Changing the permissions of the KSP folder so that it did not ask for confirmation when adding/deleting stuff solved the problem.
  2. I have a problem with 0.24.2: there is only 1 attach point on the bases, and fairings will not stick correctly, it automatically uses 8-fold symmetry instead of 2-fold.
  3. I now use the SpaceX method: first stages are fully reusable
  4. Le monde, one of the most prominent French newspapers, has published an article on KSP and educational aspects: http://www.lemonde.fr/pixels/article/2014/07/08/kerbal-space-program-le-jeu-video-qui-permet-d-apprendre-ses-cours-de-physique_4450674_4408996.html#xtor=RSS-3208 Google translate:
  5. Could you try to increase the drag of airships when deployed? I regularly exceed mach 1 on ascent with fully deployed envelopes and a small payload.
  6. Tested, it works, and it is super cool.
  7. One of my payloads does this when dewarping, but the others don't. It is a mystery to me.
  8. I'm trying to use half a fairing as a reentry shield for long payloads, but it seems the fairings detach when you get out of warp and there is nothing I can do about it (before launch dewarping is ok though). Is anyone else having the same issue? Ps Thanks e-dog for this amazing mod!
  9. I just want to say your mod is awesome, you can make very nice drones with it:
  10. Seems awesome, I just want to check if I got things right: when you click on load ship on the lauchpad, it should open a window or something even if it is in debug mode, right?
  11. A duna sample return mission. Initially, the plan was to rendez-vous with a second vessel in duna orbit, but it is so easy to escape duna I did the rendez vous in Kerbin orbit (I couldn't land the sample on kerbin directly because the probe had no parachutes). <iframe class="imgur-album" width="100%" height="550" frameborder="0" src="http://imgur.com/a/OlMcF/embed"></iframe>
  12. The closest approach function and the adapted ejection angle are so useful that thing is now on all my interplanetary ships.
  13. I managed to aerocapture at Laythe. I was coming through the Jool moon system from the wrong side (ie doing the orbit in the opposite way), so the speed relative to Laythe was 7km/s. The braking was so strong I had to burn upwards while in the atmosphere to get into orbit again.
  14. I can't seem to have correct delta v estimates for stages with not stock engines. The program thinks their fuel consumption is the Isp or something like that. Any chance to see a fix?
