  1. real quick anyone else having the landing gear "dance" ? I'm using the angled gear with a 1.5 design for doing the GAP airline flights missions, but when I'm on the ground the gear dance and jiggle around. I'm not sure if there's another mod affecting it or if it doesn't like that I clipped the gear into the fuselage a bit?
  2. Thanks for the fast response. Also just wanted to say that it's good to see you still active with KSP I went back to re-investigate and discovered that "better atmospheres" had been installed, I don't remember picking that one so I have to assume ckan installed it along with something else but I'm not sure what. I removed it and now I can get the Huey (Chieftain) up high enough for the contract I was talking about. now I just have to decide if "wetter wings" is worth it or not.
  3. I'm in the same boat right now as well (heli's). One thing I discovered is that if you have tweakable everything installed make sure you right click on the cockpit and up all the torque settings to max, otherwise your craft will be unstable (I downloaded the sample craft files and the Huey was like this until I upped the torque, then it was flyable). I'm using this part pack along with the contract pack "GAP" (giving aircraft a purpose). I accepted the "rescue climbers from K2" contract and flew the Huey out there. Much to my surprise and a good 30 min later, the huey was not able to climb above around 2500 meters, so I couldn't do the contract. I'm also an Atmos Autopilot user, and while it works wonderful for fixed wing aircraft it doesn't have any idea how to handle Heli's or VTOL craft. Unfortunately many of the contracts that are worth doing, also have LONG distances associated with them, and if you're going to fly at 4x physic's warp then your Autopilot better be up to the job. Usually AA can do it just fine, but I can't fly any of the Heli's unless it's within a short distance of one of the runways, otherwise it's just too much time. BTW if anyone has any bright idea's about how to get the climbers off of K2 without a heli, please let me know!!
  4. Thought I would expand a bit on what I was talking about in case other's have similar issues. I also installed tweakable everything, so the cockpits start with about 1/2 of the max torque set. You have to remember to right click on them and set them up to full in order to get better performance out of the helicopters. I'm still not able to get any of the helicopters up over 2500 meters though, so rescuing the climbers from the mountains is pretty much out... I don't have the tech for a longer range VTOL, and I can't get the helio's up high enough
  5. Looking for a little advice/help... I just picked up the "Rescue two climbers" contract. There are two kerbals up on K2 that need to get picked up. I am using the Airplane Plus pack for my GAP purposes... So I loaded up the Chieftain (Huey), which was fine for taking off from the runway and landing on the helipad, but it's much to slow and uncontrollable (keyboard only here) to be able to be used for this. Any suggestions out there? BTW I'm doing this career mode and basically have unlocked the bulk of T1 parts, using Community Part Tree. EDIT: well I found one thing, I didn't max out the torque on the cockpit, doing that helped some.
  6. I just installed off ckan and the avionics package is not working as a probe core (can't control a sounding rocket once loaded on the pad). Any thoughts?

    [1.3] USI Life Support [0.5.0]

    CKAN is listing them as compatible with up to version 1.3.9 of KSP, I'm assuming to cover future versioning , anyone else able to reproduce this?

    [1.3] USI Life Support [0.5.0]

    USI Tools is causing 1.3.1 to crash after the load screen just prior to the Menu screen coming up. I'm using ckan and noticed that after trying to install USI Life Support. So I used Ckan to install / uninstall things one at a time and finally narrowed it down to USI Tools, which is a dependency for a lot of things. I have the logs, but wanted to see if this was already a known issue with the latest update for KSP before I go doing a full on bug report.

    New Build suggestions please

    Finally getting back into KSP and after making the same mistake I always do (installed 113 mods), I've decided to ask the community for help with my mod addiction. I want to start a new career mode with the following goals in mind: Keep things as "Stockalike" as possible (IE no real world recreation mods or kerbalized real world stuff like FASA) This career save will be used once the new update hits, so I want to splurge on Science additions to build up my science supply (DMagic comes immediately to mind). UI and quality of Life (my life!) enhancements encouraged, Kerbal Alarm Clock, Alternate Resource Panel, MechJeb are all on the list automatically. With that, I would love to get some suggestions! I used to play with TAC LS, but I find myself installing like 10 companion mods trying to get more stuff for it, I think I might prefer a simpler life support mod this time around. Thank you in advance!!!!! Oh and I would like to stick with mods available through CKAN to make my life easier if possible.

    [1.6.x] Pathfinder - Space Camping & Geoscience

    I was hoping I could find someone to point me in the correct direction. I'm getting back into KSP after a long hiatus (I think the last I really seriously played was in .23 days, I came back to touch-base with 1.0 etc but never sat down and did a career save). Anyway that said I play with a handful of mods, the short list is KIS/KAS, Pathfinder, TAC LS, Planetary Base sys, mech jeb, BARIS, MOLE, and Buffalo to name most. Anyway, I was reading the Wiki on setting up a starter base, but it doesn't' cover how to cover life support needs with TAC installed. I was hoping that I could find someone with experience to help coach me along. I'd like to tackle learning this again in a few steps. Step 1 was remembering/re-learning KIS/KAS so that's done, I did the Wiki starter base. Step 2 is how to I use pathfinder parts to setup a sustainable supply of food, water, and oxygen for a pair of kerbals (I want to send a survey team to Minmus in prep for a perm. base and station). Finally the last phases would be learning the rest of Pathfinder to be able to produce the items needed for OSI (I think thats the name, with the 3D printer and storage) so that I can create new base modules as needed. Back in the day I played with MKS/OKS as well, but to be perfectly honest a lot of these mods are getting way to complex and over my head to be fun. I'd like some challenge, but I also don't want to spend 3 hours calculating a resource chain when I could be blowing stuff up in a game of little green men. I guess I'm that guy that wants complexity up to a certain point, then it hits a tipping point of becoming grindy . So I'm open to suggestions!! Thank you in advance, and much appreciated!
