  1. Thats exactly what i've been attempting. the defalt ksp steam control config sets the thumbstick to behave like a dpad. I've set it to give a joystick input but when trying to set it up in ksp, ksp just doesnt detect a joystick when setting it. The best work around i have found is to configure the controller to pulse the dpad to make it act like a joystick. I've only tested it on smaller craft but it seems to work well enough-ish (big deadzone on the stick) but i really want it to be a joystick input. I'm hoping im just missing something totally obvious
  2. So i've just realized i have a steam controller that i could ppotentially be using with ksp. Currently (like most players) i have used wasd for my rotation controls and the steam controllers thumbstick map uses the wasd binding. Whilst, yes, this does allow me to use my thumbstick to control my craft, it is still treating it like key strokes rather than an stick. there is no 0-100% for it. If u slightly nudge the thumbstick it still goes full tilt so there is currently no benefit for me to fly with the controller. Theres got to be something i am missing? How can i force ksp to acknowledge a thumbstick, Thanks
  3. When you get close (think less than 40km or so) your navball should switch to "target" if not you can click it until it says "target" Once set to target, burn retrograde until the relative speed is 0 then point to target (pink circle) burn until speed is around 50m/s. At this point try to get your prograde marker to match the target marker. At this point i usually switch to"Docking mode" and use my RCS thrusters to get everything right on the navball. Once you get close, burn retrograde until your relative speed is 0 again then eva him out of the ship and over onto yours
  4. After Being away from KSP for what seems like years. I reinstalled, added some mods using ckan (omg i was waiting for something like ckan since i first played ksp) then after learning how the new aero works. I slapped together a pretty crude but functional ssto and took a trip to laythe. Now i just have to send them some fuel for the return trip.
  5. Thank u op! This has driven me mad. Twice I have been doing low altitude flights to north pole (cos u know, rockets are too mainstream) and after 40 minutes it would crash! 250ms @10-12km causing 2 landing gear to get warm. At least now I know the cause
  6. If u are happy to use mods then "kerbal engineer" gives you this info. If not then I can't help sorry :-(
  7. I don't think I have ever considered trying to recover all my debris. I'm sure there's mods that will give u ur funds back if u attach a parachute to everything. Personally I have no trouble with funds to warrant debris recover. Im pretty Damn wastefull in ksp. I've often left half full stages in orbit because they aren't even needed and the added mas just makes piloting a tiny bit more tedious. Or I've ballsed up and the ship is no longer needed (normally because I under engineered it for that particular trip This is ksp not reality. Be wastefull.
  8. I currently have engineer redux and kerbal alarm clock installed and after a 40 minute early career flight to the north pole the game just crashed no error messages or anything. This has happened once before. Now before i uninstall mods and make the same trip again as its pretty intermittent and im gonna take a break for the evening but if someone can see the problem as its all just jibberish to me.

  9. The new aero does take some getting used to but it certainly makes more sense than the old placeholder. I never could get on with FAR so its a happy medium. My ships finally come screaching towards the surface at some dangerous (read:standard kerbal) speeds. On my first orbital flight I made the rookie mistake of leaving my chute and final decouple stage in one stage...needless to say that ship cam hurtling towards the planet at a pretty incredible speed and then suddenly came to a not so incredible speed. Although alot of the threads seem to be comparing the current 1.02 aero to the 1.0 aero? Forunatley I never played it at 1.0 so i currently dont suffer from the "change is to hard to get used to game is broken please revert to 1.0" syndrome Death ray would be easier than managing 10 warships....or maybe...10 warships armed with death rays?....be right back...
  10. I must say, I'm loving these new aerodynamics, the new tech tree all the little ui features. I can wait to start mining the mun and holding kerbin ransom after using the ore to build a death ray!
  11. So i stopped playing in around january and decided to wait it out until it was fully released. Naturally I promptly forgot until today when I was clearing out my steam library and got to the letter "k" What a fantastic surprise for me!!!!! all the changes! all the additions and new content! Such deliciousness. Its a good thing my significant other is away all week because she would be getting pretty heavily ignored if she were here! I'm in love all over again!
  12. Just remembered my most hated peeve. It rarely happens but when it does, it tickles my hate gland [snip - keep it clean guys]. unable to stage in map view. You think I would learn by now but when I hear an engine cut out and I instinctively hit spacebar to stage and nothing but the sigh of despair as I remember, yet again, to come out of map view, stage, then get back to it. Oh how I find it ever so slightly irksome
  13. Ksp sort of warps our perceptions of distance, orbits, dv and $$$ costs
  14. I'm a pretty easy going guy. However, the lack of axial tilt gets on my tits for some reason. Also, does the thermometer read temperatures correctly yet?
  15. Theres a lot of pages here to read but has anyone put a business plan together for this? Project leader who the designers are, what design you plan on using how much the sat itself will cost. Where will it be assembled. I think you guys need specific "staff" members and a definitive objective that you can build up to. If you are going to be looking for investment then you are going to need a detailed plan of costs, timeframe, geographical location etc I was thinking at work it would be a better idea to build a rocket instead of a cubesat. It does seem like this project is soon to start but i think a rocket is more ksp than a cubesat. You wont have to fight for or buy space on a commercial rocket. If we can make a powerfull enough rocket to get mast the magic 100km mark we can even put a small sattelite on it. Doesnt have to get to orbit but something that gets right up into the atmosphere would be a great achievement. I will still keep an eye on this to see what happens though
