    Report, stock parts. All flights started and ended on the KSC. At first I tried with my multi-role fighter but then discovered I needed even more control at very low speeds. So I made a smaller version with the same wing surface area. First stop: Baikerbanur. Went on to the Crater Rim. And the North Station. It was time to head home. This picture was taken after landing and a Hyperedit refuel. Out of time, off to work. I'll finish the report when I get home.
  2. Thanks! There are actually two issues with that Unity upgrade. Here's both of them: https://bugs.kerbalspaceprogram.com/issues/19231 https://bugs.kerbalspaceprogram.com/issues/19232
  3. I am not at all happy with this. Ever since 1.4 there has been a bug report about the changed wheel grip values which has been ignored since day one, but which has effected a huge amount of users (and in my case: 100+ craft). However the shock absorbers, which are actually less important, get the treatment within a few weeks.

    Stock part edits

    I made IR emitters, sensors, capacitors, transistors and injectors out of rocket engines and the ISRU.

    I'd love to play with it.

    A farewell is necessary!

    Going to miss you!
  7. Unfortunately it's not that easy. Some of the latest turbines use the atmospheric science thingy as turbine blades, which don't expand.
  8. Excellent work! Are you using RCS balls as root for some of your subassemblies? This would explain the 7 rad/s limit. The mass of the RCS balls is added to a root. If heavier parts are connected to a RCS ball, KSP/Unity does strange things (I once had a truck door floating in mid air after decoupling).
  9. Don't know if this is a thing but I'd rather see 1.6 arrive in 2019 instead of somewhere next week or so. Imagine releasing it just before the holidays and (worse case scenario) having a bugfest from here to the Mun. No time for a quickfix, people unhappy about their favorite mods not being updated etc.

    Chrysler Victory Air Raid Siren Replica

    If you have some sound files, I'll be glad to add them. The sirens themselves can be placed on any craft, changing pitch is done by changing thrust. The mod should be compatible with the most recent versions because I made it through part file edits and a legacy module. No custom models were used but this might change.

    Should Squad Priotize bug Fixes?

    Wut? You're saying there are multiple types of game developers? Oh no ... I always saw them as übertalented semi-machines capable of coding while texturing while drinking their tiny amounts of Jolt cola - because they don't need more. I think I'll find a cave then. Not worthy.

    What did you do in KSP today?

    Because my car has active suspension to cancel body roll (it beats the 2017 McLaren 675LT in the Swedish Moose test) I was interested if I could make something like this with stock KSP. Here I present to you my 77 Industries Anti-Roll Experiment, built into my Lowell XT. Testing was done at 60m/s and 2G lateral force. The anti-roll system works but because of the way KSP handles wheels, the increase in cornering speed was minimal (2.1 vs 1.9 G's). So I won't be building this into my cars.

    Should Squad Priotize bug Fixes?

    Didn't see a link to the video. So ... Squad/T2 ... please read the comments on that video as well. Summoning @JPLRepo to spread the massage (pun intended). Even on the largest unofficial FB group they're talking about this video. T2: you guys have deep pockets and this is a title with a bright future, maybe just not mere the niche of space exploration. The editor is the game's main selling point. Invest some more money. Even better: buy Unity and fix thát.

    What did you do in KSP today?

    Today I continued work on my 2-cylinder 4-stroke engine, which was on the shelf since July. Stock + DLC. Massive improvements in reliability and sturdiness. And I've finally got the valves working. It doesn't run on its own power yet, I need to tweak the timing a lot.
