  1. Does anyone else have an issue with the 4m pod where it continuously does the RCS animation at all times from all RCS ports on the pod? It doesn't use up any RCS propellant, but the animation plays as if it is firing all the time. I've checked through the config with my limited knowledge and can't see any cause...
  2. Edit: Remove my whole bug report. I'm a fool and didn't notice I was using RC2. Looks like the RO debugging spreadsheet link needs updating.
  3. Interesting. It worked for me too, thanks. Odd though, from what I saw that was from the ground station being named 'KSC mission control' instead of 'mission control' ? But my settings file already had the name correct, so there must have been more to it.. either way, its working now!
  4. Should this update be savegame breaking? I am playing with the current pre-release of Realism Overhaul, and everything was going quite smoothly, but when I installed this update (remote tech is one of the few mods I'm having ckan manage) I lost the remote tech settings icon from the space center, there is no remote tech 'connected' or 'not connected' display when I load ships, and KSP is now running at about 0.2 frames per second. Is this a potential bug in the new RT, a conflict with RO, or a CKAN install problem? Edit: removed RT from ckan and installed it manually, and the problem is still there. KSP is acting like RT just isn't there :s Output log KSP Log
  5. No, those MGPlus log entries - I imagine - would have been coming up exactly as I was dragging the engine around, as in the middle of all that dragging was when it crashed, and one of those entries is the last line. So, I guess that is fairly normal then, those weren't coming up out of thin air. The part I was referring to, is these three entries: [ERR 15:56:08.526] Input is null at System.Environment.get_StackTrace() at ConfigNode.CleanupInput(System.String value) at ConfigNode.AddValue(System.String name, System.String value) at BaseFieldList.Save(.ConfigNode node) at PartModule.Save(.ConfigNode node) at ShipConstruct.SaveShip() at ShipConstruction.CreateBackup(.ShipConstruct ship) at EditorLogic.SetBackup() at EditorLogic.<SetupFSM>m__101() at KerbalFSM.RunEvent(.KFSMEvent evt) at KerbalFSM.updateFSM(KFSMUpdateMode mode) at KerbalFSM.UpdateFSM() at EditorLogic.Update() [ERR 15:56:21.607] Input is null at System.Environment.get_StackTrace() at ConfigNode.CleanupInput(System.String value) at ConfigNode.AddValue(System.String name, System.String value) at BaseFieldList.Save(.ConfigNode node) at PartModule.Save(.ConfigNode node) at ShipConstruct.SaveShip() at ShipConstruction.CreateBackup(.ShipConstruct ship) at EditorLogic.onSaveConfirm() at EditorLogic.saveShip(.Callback afterSave) at EditorLogic.saveShip() at UnityEngine.Events.InvokableCall.Invoke(System.Object[] args) at UnityEngine.Events.InvokableCallList.Invoke(System.Object[] parameters) at UnityEngine.Events.UnityEventBase.Invoke(System.Object[] parameters) at UnityEngine.Events.UnityEvent.Invoke() at UnityEngine.UI.Button.Press() at UnityEngine.UI.Button.OnPointerClick(UnityEngine.EventSystems.PointerEventData eventData) at UnityEngine.EventSystems.ExecuteEvents.Execute(IPointerClickHandler handler, UnityEngine.EventSystems.BaseEventData eventData) at UnityEngine.EventSystems.ExecuteEvents.Execute(UnityEngine.GameObject target, UnityEngine.EventSystems.BaseEventData eventData, UnityEngine.EventSystems.EventFunction`1 functor) at UnityEngine.EventSystems.StandaloneInputModule.ProcessMousePress(UnityEngine.EventSystems.MouseButtonEventData data) at UnityEngine.EventSystems.StandaloneInputModule.ProcessMouseEvent(Int32 id) at UnityEngine.EventSystems.StandaloneInputModule.ProcessMouseEvent() at UnityEngine.EventSystems.StandaloneInputModule.Process() at UnityEngine.EventSystems.EventSystem.Update() [ERR 15:56:21.616] Input is null at System.Environment.get_StackTrace() at ConfigNode.CleanupInput(System.String value) at ConfigNode.AddValue(System.String name, System.String value) at BaseFieldList.Save(.ConfigNode node) at PartModule.Save(.ConfigNode node) at ShipConstruct.SaveShip() at ShipConstruction.CreateBackup(.ShipConstruct ship) at EditorLogic.onSaveConfirm() at EditorLogic.saveShip(.Callback afterSave) at EditorLogic.saveShip() at UnityEngine.Events.InvokableCall.Invoke(System.Object[] args) at UnityEngine.Events.InvokableCallList.Invoke(System.Object[] parameters) at UnityEngine.Events.UnityEventBase.Invoke(System.Object[] parameters) at UnityEngine.Events.UnityEvent.Invoke() at UnityEngine.UI.Button.Press() at UnityEngine.UI.Button.OnPointerClick(UnityEngine.EventSystems.PointerEventData eventData) at UnityEngine.EventSystems.ExecuteEvents.Execute(IPointerClickHandler handler, UnityEngine.EventSystems.BaseEventData eventData) at UnityEngine.EventSystems.ExecuteEvents.Execute(UnityEngine.GameObject target, UnityEngine.EventSystems.BaseEventData eventData, UnityEngine.EventSystems.EventFunction`1 functor) at UnityEngine.EventSystems.StandaloneInputModule.ProcessMousePress(UnityEngine.EventSystems.MouseButtonEventData data) at UnityEngine.EventSystems.StandaloneInputModule.ProcessMouseEvent(Int32 id) at UnityEngine.EventSystems.StandaloneInputModule.ProcessMouseEvent() at UnityEngine.EventSystems.StandaloneInputModule.Process() at UnityEngine.EventSystems.EventSystem.Update() Above that chunk, the events all seem to relate to placing the rover wheels, and below it is the MGPlus entries from playing with the engine symmetry, but I didn't do anything between that. So that's what I meant by errors without part placement.
  6. My game has been consistently crashing in the VAB since 1.1.x. I can't recall it crashing once in any scene outside that (maybe once when I tried to start time warp just as a 600 part station just came into physics load range, oops). It most commonly crashes, as often reported, when playing with symmetries in the editor. From what I can gather, usually when hovering a radial part onto something with symmetry already set, or when a part is in single mode hovered about to be placed, then the symmetry is increased. I've also often had it happen when picking up a part and placing it down to the side of the rocket (so its transparent and red) waiting to be re-attached after. My crash just now occurred when I was moving a 4-way symmetried Thud engine around on a X32 fuel tank. Fairly heavily modded install at the moment, but I've had it happen with a stock install too. Output Log https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4sRKGVEZfYWYzMxY21ZT0pxb0U KSP log https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4sRKGVEZfYWUzdLS1pqSGpZYU0 Whats interesting, from looking at the KSP log, everything seems fine while I was building up to part 8 at 15:54:52.697, then it suddenly started throwing Input Null errors up at seemingly everything. But its interesting to note, that all the KKAOSS parts, then the roverwheels that follow, added to the ship fine with no crashes, mini hang ups, or anything seemingly threatening. Then the errors seem to come in with no parts being added. Then there is the big long list of: [LOG 15:56:27.446] MGPlus.Start(): v01.03 [LOG 15:56:27.447] MGPlus StockPlus Enabled [LOG 15:56:30.025] MGPlus.Start(): v01.03 [LOG 15:56:30.026] MGPlus StockPlus Enabled events, I presume this is me rotating 4 x Thud engines around the fuel tank, dragging them off, putting them back on, etc, with what I guess is the GimbalPlus stock fix plus Module being called as the engines pop in and out of existence. Though, I never actually clicked to place any of the engines before it crashed, they were still waiting to be placed. As the crash seemed to happen during these module calls, I wonder if anyone has ever had any of these VAB crashes when manipulating parts that have no modules. As 'Dooots' posted, they couldn't get a crash with a simple girder. Perhaps the problems are linked more specifically to Unity's memory handling when dealing with modules in the editor, rather than just parts, or rendering?

  7. Hey there! I seem to be having a problem with this. I have the realism mode turned off, and CLS disabled, but when trying to transfer crew between parts on my station, I still get a message that says the Kerbal was unable to reach the part. It was my understanding that with realism and CLS turned off, I should be able to transfer kerbals anywhere on a vessel. I even tried going into my part configs and enabling CLS passthrough on every part in between where they needed to go, but still got the same message with or without CLS/realism enabled. Am I doing something wrong? I might have also got the pictures the wrong way around.
  8. I'm having some troubles, my asteroids don't seem to be mine-able. I have a jaw attached, and a fuel hatch, but when I right click the asteroid, I don't get any 'rock' resource like in your tutorial video, and it says that the empty/total space is 0/0. I have had the mining laser running for 5 days straight and nothing has changed. ART is the only USI mod I have installed on this save, but I have the latest version (0.7.1) and the latest KSP version. I also have USI tools installed and CRP. Is there any other dependencies I might be missing? The only other thing I could think of would be that I captured this asteroid into Kerbin orbit before I installed ART. Could it be that it only works on asteroids that spawn after the mod is installed?
  9. Hey guys! Just started poking about with this mod, and I can't figure out how to attach the large cargo rack. It seems to only want to attach from the inside, which isn't very helpful. I made a video to demonstrate. The small one doesn't seem to have the same issue, it attaches just fine. Am I doing/overlooking something stupid?
  10. Having a weird bug. I think it has something to do with turning off life support for my save. I was waiting for an Eve transfer window and had to time warp at max, which was playing havoc with my resources, so I turned off life support for the save while I did the time warping, then turned it back on. Since then, when I switch to ships that were existing before, the oxygen in them instantly goes to zero and every crew in them dies instantly I have an empty ship waiting to go to Eve in orbit, with no oxygen. Then I dock with my ship full of crew for it, that also has 128k oxygen to stock it up for the journey, which was working normally during the rendezvous, slowly depleting, etc. But as soon as they dock, the oxygen vanishes, and 36 kerbals instantly die of oxygen depletion. Anyone encountered this before? Edit: Screenshots, http://i.imgur.com/cY1jP4B.png before docking. And http://i.imgur.com/IPm7ovX.png the instant after docking. Why did all that oxygen vanish, and why didn't they have the short delay before dying, so I could try and at least get some of the air filters up and running? Edit Two: I played with my persistant file and edited the empty ship to give it full oxygen. The same thing happens when they dock, both ships oxygen is reduced to zero, 35 insta-dead kerbals https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/30206621/output_log.txt
  11. Love this part, it's going to be stuck on one of my space stations simply for the aesthetics One thing I did notice while trying to get it up to the station, is that it seems to draw a huge amount of power for its inbuilt reaction wheels Took me a long time to figure out what was causing my rocket to run out of power 10 seconds after launch In the reaction wheel module in the part.cfg you have: name = ElectricCharge rate = 500 Most reaction wheels are set to use a rate of around 0.5.
  12. Been away from this game for quite a while (since 0.22) and trying to get all my mods updated. I've been having a lot of trouble finding any information on the forums or even from google about this mod that I used to use a lot. I tried the old spaceport download link but when I added it, the quantum struts just don't appear in the parts list (sandbox mode, so I know its not a tech tree issue). I couple of threads I have seen have popped up in searches referencing work on 'Quantam struts continued,' but I can't seem to find anything solid about that either. If anyone could help, my new space stations thank you in advance.
  13. I think I see your problem. Wenches don't like being used to tow rovers. Try taking them to a tavern and sitting them on your knee. But seriously... this is normal. When its docked, its treated as one ship, so there are no part collisions. If you undock it, suddenly its two ships again that can and will smash into each other. Try to make sure the rover is not moving relative to the ship before you switch to docked mode so it doesn't drift through other parts. Or if it does clip through other parts, try and wait to see if it drifts out again before undocking. Edit: Or returning to the space center/reloading the flight usually kills any drift
  14. I hope by that he doesn't mean 'must keep the green somewhere.' All the Kethane stuff looks nice, but sometimes green just doesn't suit the rest of my space station x.x
  15. Thanks, that makes a ton more sense. I'd still like this a lot more if maybe there was only MJ or MW, rather than both. I'm getting too many resources in this game! Gonna play about with the solar power a bit. Also, does the antimatter collector need to be directly attached to the storage tank to collect AM? From looking at the resource definitions I'm thinking it works like mono, but it's good to know for sure while I'm building, rather than when I get to low solar orbit!
