  1. "Suicide burn" is standard procedure now?!?!?
  2. Thank you! I had come up with a solution involving a ResourceHarvester, a generator, and a dummy resource.
  3. THe problem is that I get a "resource not present" above roughly 36Km on Kerbin, even if I make the intakes have unrealistic areas, they get nothing - this was not the case in 1.0.4
  4. Thanks! THe problem is that I get a "resource not present" above roughly 36Km on Kerbin, even if I make the intakes have unrealistic areas, they get nothing - this was not the case in 1.0.4 I'm going to relay my finding to that thread!
  5. Hello! I was making an atmo scoop with a compressor (the idea being, let a probe fill up an air tank during aerobraking that can then be used for RCS, we're looking at this IRL with Alpha Cubesat) and got it to work in 1.0.4 - barely - but then 1.0.5 came and now the air intakes just don't seem to react at all above 36000 meters or so. The changelog makes no mention of this, it just says that air intake resource is now hidden. Is this intended behavior, and is there a configuration option to change that magic number or do I have to write a plugin? Thanks!
  6. A thought: How about filling it only if it's an unowned object, and/or if it's the only part in the ship?
  7. What I do is have a hangar with an infernal robotics piston bhind it, to push the craft out.
  8. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes!!!! Also, congratulations! (Or condolences depending)
  9. http://f3.to/portfolio/games/ksp/mms-10-mini-noftp.zip http://f3.to/portfolio/games/ksp/mms-10-mini.zip updated: * EM/peristaltic scoop now works the way it's supposed to (we're building one for real, look up Alpha Cubesat!) * replaces exes with bats so antiviruses don't freak out * replaced stack chute with decoupler chute for ease of recovering first stage SRBs without StageRecovery * added small stack drill, mostly for "hopper" probes that use the volatile mix thruster * volatile mix thruster has a small monodirectional RCS to represent differential thrust, same as quadcopter impeller
  10. Yeah there's some stuff in there that doesn't really work anymore (with 1.0) I gotta clean up a little... Hey everything's a WIP right? A peristaltic thruster is something we're developing for the Alpha Cubesat project. I doubt it'll work as well IRL as it does in the part file, but here's hoping! It's all part.cfgs there are no plugins, so go ahead and copy the AB code I Guess!
  11. I think it's tripping on the two small executables that do the FTP stuff. There are no pictures because there isn't much to look at. I changed the link above so that it's just the parts. Thanks!
