    ALIEN SKIES: A 6.4-scale playthrough of GPP/Rald

    Oh my god. Horrifying ThInGs attracted to the fridge? This can only mean one thing! FRIDGE MAGNETS!... or Magnates. I always get those two confused.

    That... was ... OK, awesome is totally the wrong word, but seriously dude, your written verbosity of atmospheric rendering is... Well it would leave me speechless if I didn't have a thesaurus open before me. Ne'er a dry eye in the 'ouse.

    LifeTM never cooperates. I'm just glad you haven't jumped off a cliff screaming after getting this far with this insane, wonderful tale (not to mention the other, even more insane, even more wonderful thing we do not speak of).... you haven't, right?..... Riiiiight?

    But the angle will be small with .05g. I assumed it wouldn't be worth bothering with... and wasn't what I said tan-1 of natural grav / rotational grav? You'd take the average rotational grav in the center, and probably the actual floor would be a slight curve to accommodate it, but the average value should be OK. Edit: Actually, my assumption that the '.05g relative to .33g perceived makes little difference' may be off if the height of the cone is relatively high... didn't think of that. Most such rotating habitats seem to be thin things so I just assumed. Dangerous sport in Math!

    Ahh, if I'd got time to read this when I wanted to I'd have beat ya to it! Been using that to cheat on... I mean to make my stories far more credible. As for a conical rotation.... That's a tricky one. All I know is what I see on Issac Arthur's channel, and it didn't exactly go into numbers there. Using the stuff that KSK linked you could probably work out what you needed by the great god MATH! (exclamation mark required by law)... or just fudge it? *shrugs* I'm guessing trig on the slope of the floor, with the normal representing a theoretical perceived force. So angle from vertical would be tan-1 of (natural gravity/provided rotational gravity effect). Note the perceived gravity would be rotational grav/cos (angle) I think. This is just off the top of my head. Normally I draw oodles of stuff out before quoting things. I get through far too many napkins like that.

    *Eye twitches* Control... and right click? Literally about the only thing I didn't try. Grrrr..... Wait... STORY! Heh, something to read. Thanks Catastrohpic!

    Oh THAT. *Fumes* How do get rid of those darned things? First time I quoted it gave me no where to type other than in the quote itself, and when I tried to redo it it did that mess

    Well OK then, cancel red alert, scrape the klingons off the bow and full speed ahead.

    This should have it's own warning siren I think: "WARNING! WARNING! 10K Threshold reached. Probability of catastrophic verbal verisimilitude collapse at 78% and rising!"
  10. Just to let you know, currently Ckan indicates that the max KSP version for BetterBurnTime is 1.4.3, not 1.4.4 But even if this doesn't get updated soon there is a workaround to force mods to be downloaded and installed manually through Ckan (if you don't want to do it the old fashioned way, or just happen to like the list on Ckan etc *shrugs*) Use (Windows Key)+R to open Windows' own command line interface (not the one in Ckan, that confused me for a bit), type cmd and enter to get into the dos lookalike section, and then navigate through the Dos style commands to the appropriate folder that your KSP prog is in. Then type the following: ckan install <identifier of mod as listed in Ckan on bottom right> = <mod version number as listed on bottom right> --allow-incompatible ie for Better Burn Time: ckan install BetterBurnTime=1.6.1 --allow-incompatible that should run it through dos to install it, you having to hit 'y' and enter to agree to the incompatible download and install Note the '--allow-incompatible' is with two minus signs in front, and one inbetween the words. Also for this mod there is no space between 'BetterBurnTime' words, even though in the description on Ckan it looks like there is a space between 'Burn' and 'Time'. Oh, and the last thing, it won't work as long as Ckan is running, so get everything ready, copying the various stuff into the command line, but close Ckan before hitting enter. Hope this helps someone, either for this mod or others. I'm no expert on Ckan, I just googled and hunted till I found something that worked for me. Done it successfully on two separate mods now, but be warned this is bypassing the checks for KSP version. Only do it on something you know works with your version of the game! EDIT: missed a section getting into the dos command. Edited accordingly.

    Huh, the Dart Aerospike just kept getting stuck in R&D for me. Never reached production, never reached orbit. Is it supposed to be a valid path in the tech tree?

    Yeah, you un-deadified IVAN... mostly. Hopefully a little more undead next time around. Go Burdous... while you can.. *sniff* Love the Flight of the Navigator references... Compliance!
