  1. I have Deployed Mystery Goo science thingies deployed on the Mun and Minmus. They've been working fine. They reported back every day or whatever with 8 or 16 science. Cool. Upgrade to 1.7.3 - and at the same time, replaced the solar panels with RTGs, and redeployed the science thingies with a better scientist. Now I'm SPAMmed every 5 minutes with Goo reports for a tiny fraction of a point of science. The Minmus one reports twice every 5 minutes. Any advice? Thanks Edit: Mistake. Each Mystery Goo is making one report every 5 minutes. The Ion thingy is also reporting every five minutes. Edit 2: It might be every 20 minutes. Still, way too often.
  2. So. I got a contract to collect some green sandstone from Minmus. They said I could find it on this flat or that. I landed a rover and drove all over the relevant flat for a couple hours. Nothing. I then learned that if your save was from before Breaking Ground, there would be none of the new surface features. So, I edited my save as recommended in some post. Still, no sandstone. I deleted my save and started a new save. Eventually, got the same contract – bring home some green sandstone. Again, an hour or two in a rover in the designated bioms. No sandstone. I uninstalled and reinstalled KSP. Started a new career. Got the same contract. Green sandstone which can be found on the Flats, Great Flats, or Greater Flats. I drove all over the Greater Flats. It took hours. No sandstone. I drove my rover from the Greater Flats to the Flats. Yeah. I drove there. Drove all over the Flats. Nothing. I decided I would then drive to the Great Flats from there. Fortunately, I found the sandstone in the Lowlands early on my trip to the Great Flats. All in all, I think I covered about 500km in this last save alone. Later, in the same save, I decided to make a research outpost on the Mun's Northern Crater. I had no contract to bring anything back. The Mun's Northern Crater was so littered with surface features, it made rover piloting hazardous.
  3. Awesome. Seems obvious in retrospect. Thank you so much. TML Thanks for the link to a great looking tool. TML
  4. I am trying to deploy three relay satellite constellations. One between the orbit of Moho and Eve with four satellites. One between Kerbin and Duna with six satellites. One between Dres and Jool with eight satellites. I would like the satellites in each constellation to be equally spaced. For the first, I settled on an orbital altitude of 7.5Gm. That gives an orbital period of roughly 184 days. So, for four satellites, they should be spaced about 46 days apart. I tried launching one satellite every 46 days, but that didn't work. By the time 46 days passed after launching the first satellite, the periapsis moved ahead a bit and the second satellite was ~26 days behind the first. I figure I could add 20 days to the launch window (launch every 66 days). That still didn't work. It brought me ~30-40 days separation. I found the Resonant Orbit Calculator I suppose I could launch all of my satellites at (about) the same time (they're too big to practically launch as a single vessel – especially eight of them) and use the calculator to space them out. That would probably be close enough. But I would like something better. Is there a way to calculate my launch interval (knowing how many satellites in the constellation, orbital period, and apoapsis/periapsis) so I wind up with an equally spaced constellation? Thanks
  5. Update: I moved my page file from my tiny SSD Windows / boot drive to a very roomy regular hard drive and have been playing for hours without issue.
  6. I've been playing KSP for years (since 0.18) with virtually no issues. Since the last few versions, KSP has begun crashing frequently. I can't say for certain, but if pressed, I would guess since 1.4.x. My earliest crash folder is from 03/19/2018. Usually it's a complete system lock - requires power down to recover. Occasionally, just the app crashes and generates a crash report. I completely uninstalled and re-installed using no mods - same. KSP is installed via Steam, but I do not launch via Steam (I have a shortcut on the desktop direct to the executable). Running the 32bit version will run longer before crashing, but crash is inevitable. It has become unplayable. I run Windows 10 Home on Intel i7 6700k 4.0Ghz with 32GB RAM, NVidia GeForce GTX970 (I forgot how much memory it has, but "plenty" comes to mind). http://misanthropia.com/KSPCrash/crash.dmp http://misanthropia.com/KSPCrash/error.log Thanks for any help, TML
  7. I did complete uninstall and reinstall...still getting notifications.
  8. When I first played, A nickle would buy you a steak and kidney pie, a cup of coffee, a slice of cheesecake, and a newsreel, with enough change left over to ride the trolley from Battery Park to the Polo Grounds.
  9. I don't know where they're from, but I do have that mod installed.
  10. No asteroid, but I have a taco, a guitar, and a basketball.
  11. ThreeMartiniLaunch here with a decidedly not KSP video. It's part of my walk home from work...Port Authority Bus Terminal to Time Square Station.
  12. Thanks for such a fine mod. Is an update required for 1.0.4?
