  1. Hello again. I have managed to compete most of the missions now such as resupplying the "mother ship" , and also landing the supplys about 4,5km from my base on duna. And now i just need to drive the 64km to the rescue ship, and rendevuze with the mothership and that part will be a bit tricky depending on arrival angel of the ship, and how fast its going and such things. Just like with the supply ship that need to dock. By the way I kept the supply ship docked to my ship so i have a huge amount of xenon fuel with me. .The rocket part I have send on a crash course with kerbin ;-) I notised 3 things that i like to mention that is a bit comfusing in the mission. 1). It took some time to figure out how the base work and transfer my kerbal arround.. anyway figured it out. ;-) 2): THe part where we have to build the first supply ship i find a bit comfusing.. When i get the mission i go to the hangar to build, but the mission tekst do not pop up.. But if i select the premade vehicle and launch it, then i get some message that i need to build the ship, and then i revert/recycle the ship and now inside of the hangar i get a popup saying something about do you want to continue the mission and then you load and lauch the ship. I even think we need to right click the mission tekst to get an option to build the ship. anyway i find this part a little comfusing. 3). when i land the supply near 4,5 km from my base and dock my rover then i notised that I cannot transfer fuel.. I am not sure if a fuel line broke off when it land or something, but never the less i cannot transfer fuel .. ( dont know if its a bug or my supply was damaged ) I have to say I filled up the tank in the supply ship before I send it to duna and the extra weight also made it hard to dock with the rover but I manged to do it anyway... the extra weight could have damaged something so im unable to refuel. ANyway, cool mission i love it.. And im about to drive the 64km to the rescue ship now... And the Kermes mother ship is on the way towards duna, however 1 year delayed since the resupply forced me to do some bad navigation errors.. But i managed to resupply ect, but it also delay my mission and trip to duna allot. ANyway bob is NOT running out of potato chips, so he can wait 1 year to get rescued ;-) PS:. thank you for over enginering the spaceships so they have much more fuel than needed, that really saved my kerbals and mission he he PPS.. as you know the trick to playing the mission is to follow the instructions 100% and taking one step at a time... I dident do that the first times i played there for i got stuck. PPPS... i love the rovers and how you can attach "modules" to them and configure their abilities. that is cool
  2. Regarding fuel transfer and battery power.. I can comfirm that in v2,4 that it is working. But i am my self have some problems. The game will not detect that BOB enters the rover and it will also not detect that i examin the DTV ( abandoned landing gear of the return vehicle ) near the base. I have played the mission 2 times now.. .1 time before the latest update, and one time after. The first time before the update/patch ( i think ) i was able to advance and bob sitting in the rover was detected and the signal i send to kerbin also was detected. Money was unlocked and everything worked perfect except i crashed the sattelite above duna and desided to restart.. During my next playtough the above objectives where not unlocked or recognized... Im not sure if it is a bug, or if I was just unlucky. ;-) Tomorrow i restart and try again. PS.. I dont think it is so obvious for people that they have to be in the capsul in the base and then right click the white faring so it fall appart so you can get out. Maybe a little help tekst would be nice. ;-)
  3. Yet another "uppdated news" without any real interesting news.. .. ""sorry". Release the upcomming DLC or Mutiplayer patch, nothing els matter at this time. The game is now "old" just waiting for real news that actual bring somethin new to the game. Very very very slow development. Sorry to sound that harch, but development is going in slow motion, and almost in reverse gear.
  4. I know this is an old Tread but I hope this info can be of help to someone looking for advice. In case your x56 or any other joystick is a bit slow or do "odd" things that it is not supposed to do by it self such as extending gear or other stuff. Then you can often fix this issues if you plug your joystick and trust joystick into USB 3.0 ( the blue usb ports ) on your computer. The reason are especially the trust joystick require more power, and if you are using example an usb 2.0 hub then you might not get enough power. In general I recommend people to buy a USB 3.0 hub and use usb 3.0 to as many things as possible.. ;-)
  5. One major reason why mods get Abandoned is = That every time a new ksp version is released then it typical break a mod, so the modder have to repair/adjust the mod ever time. Some modders/players have been here for years and some might not play ksp much or have an interest in it anymore... Just saying it would have been better if once a mod is created that it will work forever and dont need updates a few times every year. To my humble oppinion squad's way they created their game and how mods need to be updated every time is a terrible solution.
  6. I found this on the forum regarding a silmilar problem "" So. I started to have this problem. I'm running Windows 10 64bit and I figured that if the game had a 64 bit option, it would auto-run it. I don't think it is as I'm getting the same crashes as everyone else after the game only uses 48% of available memory (I have 16GB). Using the 64-bit version of the game launcher (ksp_x64.exe) solved the problem nicely "" Try to run ksp in 64bit.. On steam you always see a popup where you can choose 32bit ( normal ) or 64bit. If you use the version of thegame here from official webpage, then you maybe have to navigate to your game folder and use the KSP_x64.exe file. Hope this advide can help you. Also you can try to install ksp as admin and see if this will help you. Or try to read this forum ( go to page 4 ) https://steamcommunity.com/app/220200/discussions/0/598198356186358277/
  7. Hi, yes i think i know what the problem is and i had a similar problem in the past where it was impossible to host any server even if i open all ports and turned off firewalls ect.... ( by the way DO NOT turn on DMZ this is VERY bad for system security, it is like turning all security off ) Many people who get internet are on a so called WAN network ( wide area network ) = a simple example... you have a internet supplier with one super high speed internet line, and then everybody use the same internet connection but all people have a different ip.. Normal this is not a problem when just surfing the net or gaming on the internet since your ISP router/modem make sure everybody so to speak "drive on their own highway". BUT to be able to get "priority" on the highway and get more "rights" then you need a little extra service so you can use "another car on the highway " What you properbly have to do is to call your ISP and ask to get a static permanent static ip address... This typical cost a little money to setup like 10usd. Then you will ALWAYS have the same IP address. When you have a static ip address then i am pretty sure that your server will work. You will also be able to host a teamspeak server and other servers. I hope this will point you in the right direction so you know what to try or read more about.

  8. Try this The 4x empty capsul cannot be entered from the outside.. You need to put your kerbal in your 2-3 person capsul and then move/transfer him into the 4x empty capsul. Right lick the capsul and transfer crew to 4x empty capsul.
  9. Thank you for a really beautifull and good mod. - I did not read all the previous forum pages. But i like to suggest that the "lightning" effect on all planets need to be adjusted a bit. - There need to be less lightning ( example 50% less ) - The speed the lightning is repeated need to be lowered, there are simply to much lightning and to often, and to close to each other. It feel like "to much" is happening. Other than that love the mod :-)
  10. In the start of the career I typical go as fast as possible into orbit. Reason is I can gater quite allot of science fast, and I get many bonus money for orbit/speed ect. After that I send up 2-3 ships in orbit to gather science and unlock more science expriements. Next I make a flyby of the mum 2-3 times to gather science. Now I pretty fast reach the 100 science MAX in the research centre and have to focus on making money instead. I start sending up sattelites arround kerbin/mum/minmus, and land 1 prope on mum and minmus.. Next i do more sattelite missions and the missions about send back data from x location ( i send back 0 science ) = mission success = fast money.. These type of missions can be finished in like 1 minute without even sending up a new sattelite ect.. So i just use my sattelites/propes to do science for me and it cost me 0 credit. Depending what i want to do I go to minmus and gather ALLOT of science and store it all in the science container and at some point i send a ship back with everything and get example 1000 science. Also for an extra boost, i have a research base example in orbit of minmus and the mum and then that give extra boost to science pr. day. Next i start to send out som sattelites to random planets and do a fly by.. I know they are mostly lost since they do not yet have a good enough antenna/dish but i make allot of money. Regarding going further out into space.. well truth is I have the skill to go anywhere, but typical I go to mum/minmus and duna and then I kind of loose interest for playing, and typical i start a new save game when a new kerbal patch is released and then I restart my career game.. I did never really do allot of missions to planets far away ect. Also i typical play with realistic mods such as with life support, that make the long jurney trips allot harder. I have a 0 loss tollerance of my kerbals.. I will not allow anyone to die, so i send remote controled propes first and do "safe" orbits before I even dare plan to go down onto a planet. I always have backup plans or an extra "fuel" ship just in case that i can dock with so everyone can go home again. So I did actual not really reach the part of the game where i can drill and produce fuel ect... ( except when i try it in sandbox ) I never play that long in an career game yet ( but i should try to keep going ;-) )
  11. found this..: it will only be one thread per vessel. Basically when you are approaching your space station your craft and space station are in different threads (and your OS might put these threads into different cores if it sees it worthwhile). But once you dock, they get merged into one thread and to one core. If you are trying to dock big ship to big station, it should help with FPS, but once you are docked it will basically be the same situation as now. Hope this help a little with understanding how kerbal uses "cores".
  12. Dear Forum. I read something interesting in the news today that I thought you guys might find interesting. Some Researchers have created " metalic hydrogen".. You might wonder what it is, but that is hydrogen gas compressed with a force of 71700000 psi, that is more than 1,3 the presure of the presure in the earth center. So you might wonder why is this so facinating. When doing this you can create "metallic hydrogen" and it is what I will call a "super rocket fuel". The "metalic hydrogen" can also be used in electric cars and many other products". However so far it is extremly difficult to create metallic hydrogen, and also very expensive.. But as time goes by and they get better and faster at creating this, then it the price will drop ect. But maybe im not the best at explaining, but hope you guys find what you seek about the topic in the below links. http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2017/01/diamond-vise-turns-hydrogen-metal-potentially-ending-80-year-quest Here is a danish article with interesting facts. ( use google translate to translate it ) http://www.dr.dk/nyheder/viden/naturvidenskab/metallisk-brint-skabt-i-laboratoriet-kan-give-os-super-raketter Or you can try to click my google translate link for direct translation https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=da&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=da&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.dr.dk%2Fnyheder%2Fviden%2Fnaturvidenskab%2Fmetallisk-brint-skabt-i-laboratoriet-kan-give-os-super-raketter&edit-text=
  13. I think it is quite easy to build and send up a basic sattelite with a small antenna and solar panel + battery very fast. You get the solar panel in tier 3, and if i remember correctly then you need less than 65+ science to get the solar panel. You can find 60 science at ksp if you like, or the area arround ksp example land in water gather science, and land on different terrain and gather science ect. here are tips for gathering science in early game
  14. I like to do sattelite missions to earn cash. It example cost 10-15.000 to send up one sattelite and it pay 65.000 ( on hard level ) Sometimes you even get missions where you have to move your sattelite that already are in space, and then you can earn money this way also. And my favorite you have to send back science from example arround the mum, and then you just visit your sattelite and gather research ( just gather 0 research it is okay ) and then send the data back, mission success Alternative you can also send a rocket far far away and it will unlock rewards and cash as it get further and further away from kerbin.. ;-) To unlock sattelite missions, you need solar panel in tier 3 ( i think ) and i highly recommend the small engine in tier 3 also that make it more easy to create small sattelites.
