  1. Hello all, i have noticed something weird when using RO engines, family LE-5. When using throttable engines, LE-5A to LE-5B-3, i noticed that when you throttle up from minimum Throttle, the engine rpm jump from minimum to 74%, then you can use rpm between 74% and 100%. There’s no possible rpm use between 74% and minimum which is 5% for LE-5A and 3% for other engines, so engines are throttable from 74% to 100%, then you must jump directly to 3 or 5%: Is it a normal use? It is not that it looks like when reading engines datas
  2. Does it work with RSS, to scan the moon....I did not succeed....KSP 1.12.3 Thank's
  3. Hi guys, I launched myself this Challenge Create a remote Comment around Earth with 3 probes to control probes to the Moon Create a superHeavy Launcher, 2 stages 1st LFO (Re -usable stage) from Earth to 60 kms, then LH2O to low orbit 200-250 kms Here is the test: https://youtu.be/xkE_TTSKdFI Diameter 8m50 to launch an Orbital LunarGateway able to join a 100 kms Moon Polar Orbit: 5 launches with 1 central Core, with Lab, and habitats and 4 cryogenic tanks to dock on the central core Create a Starship, diameter 8m50, Height 50m, able to join the LunarGateway from Earth Low orbit and launch it with the superHeavy launcher Starship: 12 passengers + 1 exploration Rover and ability to survive launch crash in atmosphere. Payload to Moon from Lunar Gateway: More than 25T Mission of Starship: Land the rover that will search a site to build a MoonBase Create 3 modular moonBase elements to launch and dock to Lunar Gateway. The Starship will deliver them 1 by 1 to be assembled on moon Create and launch to lunar gateway a moon driller, able to drill, then move and refuel the Starship in order to fill the LunarGateway tanks Create and launch an SSTO Shuttle to lunar gateway for crew rotation Create a shuttle to stay near MoonBase for emergency evacuation
  4. Hello Is there a way to prevent chutes from autocut? I land vertically my first stage in the sea. it's very high: 92m ( I am playing RSS) Once it is landed it falls horizontal in the water after a while and then breaks: if the chute where not cut, they would prevent the stage from breaking because it would fall very slowly. Thanks for reply
  5. Hello I got the latest release of FMRS in KSP RSS 1.12.3 What can explain the freeze of the staged tanks detected by FMRS ?. It's in yellow and when I select it, it stays frozen in the air with infinity time to Apoapsis. Thank's for reply
  6. The fact is that if you don't act in a certain way, after tweak scale, one of your symmetrical fuel tank will get the right fuel according to tweak scale, and the other tank will get the initial fuel, the before you tweak scale. To avoid it, select your fuel tank, put your symetrical tank not tweak scaled, select your fuel, you'll get the original quantity with a normal tank, then tweak scale one tank, and the other tank will be tweak scaled too with the right quantity in each fuel tank. If you want to proceed with another similar tweak scaled tank in symmetry, don't take from the previous tweakscaled tank using option key, but select another original tank, put it in symmetry, then select fuel options, and tweakscale again, and so on....This is the only way to get symmetrical fuel in tweakscaled tank
  7. Is this mod abandoned?? It's the best spaceplane mod in KSP!!
  8. Hello, does anybody know how to board those stupid kernels, once they are on top of the ladder: they are unable to walk on the jetway to board!!!
  9. Thank you, yes it is deprecated and I create a new liner in KSP 1.11.2 so that I could tweak scale the J 61 This new giant OPT liner flies like a flower, take off easy and Kiss landing
  10. Hello I can't tweak scale the J61 engine on this aircraft...Is there any forgotten lines somewhere in the mod about J61 tweak scale Possibility?
  11. OPT Airliner for 1800 pax, KSP 1.12.3, length 198m, 2340T
  12. I launched 5 probes together on a 17000kms orbit to Jool (Image 1) . I separated a probe with an LFO tank 90/1000. (image 2). On KER I read more 4000DV and I get them! The same probe in the VAB: Mechjeb and Ker give 1938 VAC DV around Cool (image 3) . I teleport this probe with Kerbaltek on the same Jool orbit -17000 kms- and I got the 1938 DV expected (image 4) https://imgur.com/IZ1TiFj https://imgur.com/md0YAJB https://imgur.com/GAHwkOM https://imgur.com/odyyC8Z
  13. Hello Beautiful rover! But when my kernels wants to board, they are unable to walk on the jetway once they are at the top of the ladder.... how do you board them?
  14. I am talking about the release 3.28.1 which is on the first page and on github
  15. Hello, this last release made my game lag as never: 1s in the game lasted 10s on my screen..!! As soon as I revert to the Twekscale companion 2023.3.18.0 on KSP RSS 1.12.3, things returned to normal...
  16. I discover Geysers on a Laythe Island I visited with my Spaceplane. Bill had a bath in the Geysers and was thrown in the air!! https://youtu.be/b-E9iarkXWg
  17. Hello thank you for this mod I use on Mac OSX. Question about the Spectra_Scatterer folder: It must be in Game Data>Scatterer>Spectra_Scatterer or Game Data> Spectra_Scatterer or Game Data>Spectra>Spectra_Scatterer (same level than Spectra_eve) and then merge the different contents of Scatterer in, the Spectra_Scatterer folder and the Spectra_Eve folder ? Thank you for reply
  18. Well guys, thank you for all your answers. in fact you're right! too many Rapiers I just work on a new plane which is a TSTM: Two Stages To Run, The first stage is an atmospheric stage that feed the 3 Rapiers, Then when I switch to closed cycle, the atmospheric stage is decouple and one in orbit I got 2700-2800 DV left with the Space Plane, much more lighter an much more endurance! But I am working on a version with 2 Terriers giving same DV once in orbit and only 21T at take off. The atmospheric stage is 2 Rapiers with 200 kg of LF
  19. Thank you for answers. This TSTO give me 2500 DV left, once 80 km orbit is reached……i don.t knowhow to get so many DV left with only 1 Rapier
  20. Given a mass to set to orbit with SSTO around Kerbin I am wondering what is the best use of the Rapier Engine -The weight of the Rapier is the weight of 400 LF -The Rapier gives his best TWR and thrust when accelerating in low atmosphere to reach around 1600 m/s between 22 and 25000 before switching to Closed Cycle -I am trying a MK1 SSTO with cabin crew and 2 Rapiers only, to reach orbit and Get 2000DV once establish The choices are: - Add a lot of LF and and a very long acceleration in low atmosphere to take advantage of the Rapiers and reach 1600m/s around 22000m before switching -Build TSTO with 2 Rapiers more or maybe 4 with 2 or 4 MK1 LF, this stage breeding the 2 Rapiers of the SSTO part and its own Rapiers and being decouple when switching to closed cycle on the SSTO. Here the acceleration would be crazy, you don't need to stay in low atmosphere and climb very quickly to 25000m reaching 1600m/s with higher Apo before decoupling and switching. I tested TWR up to 4.5 but it's very not to explode du to heat In this this TSTO only 4 MK1 tank with only 280 LF in each are enough to reach 25000m
  21. Landing of the electric plane Titanium near Titan manned Base First flight from Titan Base to North ocean Flight from North Ocean to East Canyons: altitude 100 kms. Saturn rise during flight
  22. Here are my last Spaceplanes: The Mars Stratolauncher is 3000T stratolauncher equipped with 9 Tweakscaled J61 to launch my OPT VTOL TSTO Mars Shuttle à mach 9 between 48 and 50 kms. Once in 400 kms orbit the TSTO has got 17000DV available, then the stratolauncher can't fly back to its base, but is able to fly back at the nearest place to land. The Stratolauncher is as long as the Antonov A 225 (The one that has been destroyed during Ukraine war and with was carrying the Bourane Shuttle), 85M, but is less wide, only 55m.
