  1. Maximum praise for an amazing mod. I navigated to the general direction facing the target docking port, activated the new SAS mode, and then did a small RCS burn towards the target (H key). I centered the yellow direction of travel indicator within the red target indicator. As I closed on the target, the indicator would drift, but using small RCS corrections (J/L and I/K keys) I kept the direction indicator centered. When I got close, I slowed it down to .1 m/s. The docking was so smooth I did not realize it had happened - no wagging about. THANKS!!
  2. If it did not slow like that, it would probably miss hitting the exact vector, oscillate around the vector or overshoot. Great precision is needed since small errors lead to HUGE changes in outcome when you are doing long range transfers.
  3. The video shown at the address looks just like a KSP staging error in which the parachute is deployed at launch. Unfortunately, this is a real person, a real rocket, and they are really dead. Viewer discretion is advised. https://nypost.com/2020/02/23/mad-mike-hughes-fatal-rocket-crash-caught-on-video/
  4. Checking out the looks of the new graphics, I did a flythough of the river and canyon complex east of KSP (latitude = -1.089319 longitude = 18.135708). It is gorgeous and fun to fly. The new screenshot maneuver mode makes it easy to compose nice looking wallpapers. Imgur link: https://imgur.com/gallery/5eoirow
  5. Just tried the new 1.9 edition and I have to say it looks magnificent and runs great. My favorite mods worked (MechJeb and For Science). The Desert Runway looks better and the Pyramids are improved. I had given up playing KSP waiting for this and I am so pleased. I hope that they continue to make these kinds of improvements.
  6. Today I dreamed I was a Kerbal. I was inside a MK1-3 Command Pod in orbit and was coming around Kerbin preparing to boost to the Mun. I remember wondering if I would actually hit the Mun SOI since I was going to do the burn manually. Just as I was preparing to start the engine, an asteroid a little bigger than my command pod came into view through the window and got bigger and bigger until I actually BUMPED it. I have been playing since 2013, but never dreamed about KSP before, much less that I WAS a Kerbal!
  7. Most folks who have played for a while are familiar with the KSP Temple in the Desert... But I accidentally discovered the origin of this type of "deity" in Mesopotamia!! He is Akkadian as shown by this cylinder seal from 2300 BC. Perhaps.... the Kerbals do not come from the far future, but from our past as they were recognized as Gods. The hat proves it and is distinctive!
  8. I was curious to see if I had seen ALL of the various loading screens and started to look for the directory and I cannot seem to find it. It seemed that there were new ones being generated. Where are the images stored?
  9. I also found it in the top left corner and not moveable. Using 1.8 version.
  10. @Lisias ran into the same problem with Tweakscale. He MIGHT know how to fix it. In the meantime, no Decoupler Shroud for 1.8
  11. I agree wholeheartedly. The game lacks a certain ambiance without this mod. The fact that it is adjustable is even better. I play a game called "Banished" and the constant mooing, clucking, and baaing of the livestock becomes annoying after a fashion. Too much of a good thing.
  12. @Lisias I may have noticed something significant. I used to see while tuning my aircraft that the authority used to go to 150 and default to 100. Now, with UNMODDED KSP 1.8 and UNMODDED Making History, the scale has changed. It now defaults to 20, further, they added the option of deploy angle that did not exist before. I do not know if this is a bug or a feature, but I am speculating that something changed in Unity regarding these variables or in their adoption of the new Unity. The change of scale could be the borking factor, BUT I could be wrong....
