  1. I just tested your fix, it seems to have worked on everything except the Cupola. EDIT: nevermind, I think Ven's cupola just doesn't have reflections.
  2. Installing this mod via CKAN does not work correctly. It appears to be looking for the ModuleManager DLL in the GameData folder, however CKAN does not install the ModuleManager in that location. This seemed to be fixed by downloading the mod as usual in CKAN and manually dropping ModuleManager into the GameData folder.
  3. Correct me if I am wrong, I thought in KSP there were a couple engines that had higher Isp in atmosphere than in space. I agree it isn't very realistic if this is true. Scientists design engines for specific applications. They know what atmospheric pressure (or range) their engine will be operating in and design a fitting bell nozzle because they also design the combustion chamber pressure. What I was explaining is why a single given rocket has doesnt have a constant Isp at changing altitudes. KSP doesn't calculate pressure differences, it just interpolates between ground Isp and vacuum Isp
  4. A lot of people are making incorrect statements about exhaust plume shape and size. Color just depends on temperature, and fuel mixture. The exhaust plume size and shape is never the same as an engine travels through the atmosphere. When the exhaust plume is narrower than the bell nozzle, the nozzle is known as overexpanded. This is because the engine is operating outside of its optimal design conditions and it is too low in the atmosphere, so low that the air pressure is pushing in on the plume and the nozzle isn't getting every bit of force it can from the exhaust. When the bell nozzle is at
  5. That Duna base setup looks better than Bobcat's HOME's. I want them I NEED THEM
  6. THIS IS EPIC! I have the Mass Effect starmap song to play in the tracking station!!!!!!!!! It's a dream come true :') http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eoqyXSDpr14 Similar to the specific music on planets, it is possible to play a song while viewing the map on an active ship?
  7. With soundscapes, is it possible to play a specific soundscape only while in map-mode? . . . . . . . . . . . Mass Effect galaxy map theme?
  8. What is funny is that us in the satellite industry actually refer to the production satellites themselves as "buses."
  9. The FAA has jurisdiction over all United States private and civilian spacecraft and launch vehicles. The government (military) has its own set of regulations that are more strict and do not fall under FAA regulations. NASA does not create these regulations, they abide by them.
  10. The FAA will not let something like that go into orbit because it is not capable of maintaining its orbit via station keeping and is not able to control its reentry. Rule of thumb is objects larger than 1 square meter do not burn up in atmosphere. A bus like that could de-orbit and come down in a city and knock out a skyscraper.
  11. I like it. It reminds me of the 1.25m BACE kit inflatable habitat, but in 2.5m. They will go well together.
  12. This plugin sounds like something bullettMAGNETT can use. He has great sounds made from scratch, but he said he doesn't have the coding experience to make a plugin.
  13. I can't figure out what the normalizer does, but I always turn it off because it makes everything sound terrible. I have a Soundblaster Z card, which should be able to handle any audio thrown at it (works with BF4 5.1 surround well).
