  1. I tried it a few different ways and none worked. I ended up using the the tube to ghetto dock the two crafts and deorbit after redistributing some parachutes-- I am quite surprised to say it worked. Thank you for the mod info, I found and added it as a result of this mission. Hopefully this will be the last to face this complication.
  2. I got one of those rescue contracts that puts a kerbal in a sealed module with no hatch. I managed to rendezvous, and I am trying to transfer the rescue kerbal using a FlexOtube, there is room in the destination module, but for whatever reason I cannot make the transfer. Any help troubleshooting this? FlexOtubes are passable for CLS, right? If not, how do I MAKE it passable?
  3. Is Kerbin side being maintained for 1.4.3 or has it moved ownership to Kerbin side remastered?
  4. Exactly what I thought. Instead of the constellation bundle I tried to use just MKS 54.1 and crashed to desktop. The crash log is literally empty. And the version checker still says various things (Konstruction, MKS, USI-Core etc.) were compiled for 1.4.
  5. I am using the newest USI constellation download labeled for 1.3.1, but when I start the game the version checker says it was compiled for 1.4, and it crashes to desktop before getting to the main menu. I am using a pretty heavily modded game, but it loads/plays successfully without the USI constellation.
  6. Which is the newest TCA release compatible with KSP 1.3.1?
  7. Don't get me wrong, I totally agree with you. I am just saying that if you make things too complex there is a point of diminishing return where more users will opt out rather than deal with all the extra mechanics, at which point most of the effort put into perfecting those mechanics is largely wasted. This is in no way a criticism, Rover does great work. I hate to see him go too far down a rabbit hole when his limited time and energy can be used elsewhere and potentially have more impact for more end users.
  8. While the back and forth about maintenance and such has been interesting, I just want to point something out from the "casual" gamer perspective. There is a notable difference between adding interactive complexity/depth to the gameplay and simply creating a huge, repetitive pain in the ass for the player to deal with on a regular basis. If you add too much complexity for the sake of complexity, I will be forced to neuter all of these extra "features" so that I can actually enjoy playing the game again.
  9. I did not realize you guys were doing a full reboot. How is that coming along?
  10. Well hell, knowing that sooner would have saved a whole lot of time and annoyance. Thank you. That should probably be placed down with the other downloads under the Patreon button (which I highly recommend using to support Rover's coffee addiction).
  11. What is the "Constellation"? Is there a simple "Everything RoverDude Makes" bundle?
  12. Yes, the catalog is where I am downloading mods from. But no, the information is NOT right in front of me on that page to tell me what is or is not included each download. The entire point of having a list of the contents is to let people who are not already intimately familiar with this family of mods know exactly what is or is not included with each download before they download it. For example: Karibou rover system is listed as included with MKS. Kontainers is NOT listed, but apparently IS included with MKS. USI Life Support is mentioned on the front page here, but it is not specified if it is or is not included in the MKS download. USI Core sounds like something I need, is it also included in MKS, or is that a separate download like the USI Life Support? Do I need to download USI Core to run the Sounding Rockets pack? What about USI Tools? The Community Category Kit and Community Resource Pack sound like they are for modders, do I even need those? If I need them, are they downloaded separately, or are they included with MKS? So yes, a list is needed.
  13. I usually just download everything from the USI site, but found that there seems to be some overlap resulting from bundling. I am not entirely sure what all is bundled in with this pack, Karibou, Konstruction, Kontainers, what else? Is there a complete list somewhere?
  14. Glad to see this one is still kicking, one of my favorites.
