  1. Question: I'm having difficulty using fuel-cells. I'm already using cryogenic tanks, but the boil-off remains too high to make this a viable solution. How do you store Hydrogen for the 10+ days a lunar landing mission takes without requiring 4+ tons just because of boil-off?
  2. The way I currently solve this is by applying KAS struts via EVA to strut-attachment points.
  3. I've tried Papa Joe's experimental DLL for about a week now and I've had 0 issues with CLS.
  4. Unfortunately this doesn't solve it either. Changed KerbinRepairFaultyModule.cfg Cancelled the Contract Accepted a new contract (of this type). The mission shows: Vessel: KSS 1: Kerbal must be an engineer and on board the KSS (checked). Complete ALL of the following: (not checked). Vessel type: EVA (checked). Crew (not checked). Trait: Engineer (checked) Count: At least 1 (checked). Waiting for an Engineer 02:00 (unchecked) This is with an Engineer flying around the KSS 1. I'll be online again probably late tomorrow evening or otherwise the evening after. Anyway, no rush
  5. Unfortunately this doesn't solve it. Backup up my save, replaced KerbinRepairFaultyModule.cfg, loaded the game, cancelled the contract, picked it up again. The mission shows: Vessel: KSS 1: Kerbal must be an engineer and on board the KSS (checked). Complete ALL of the following: (not checked). Vessel type: EVA (checked). Crew (not checked). Trait: Engineer (checked) Count: At least 1 (checked). This is with an Engineer flying around the KSS 1. Ready to give it another try?
  6. It is orbiting Kerbin (though I do have stations orbiting Mun and Minmus too). The contract specifies the station orbiting Kerbin though.
  7. Ah, then I might've stumbled on a bug, as I've been outside at least for 10 minutes moving from panel to panel. It did detect the Engineer and the EVA, but not the 2 minute timer. I'll do some more checking and report back here.
  8. Might I suggest using Notepad++ for plain test editing? It's light-weight and free (both as in beer and speech). http://notepad-plus-plus.org/
  9. Question: I've got a 'Repair a faulty power module' mission for my KSS. How do I find out which Solar panel to fix? I've checked all of them (the station has over 60 of them), and none seem to offer a "Fix me" action of some kind.
  10. Not entirely sure whether I've found a bug in this mod or not. But I'm getting two 'recovered' messages for each recovered part and I'm also getting twice the funds. I've added up all the contracts, both archived and current, and I've got more funds than I could've possibly gained. I'm using DebRefund-1.0.12.

[edit] Did a quick test by starting a new Campaign. First launch with multiple stages == immediate doubling of recovered parts. [edit2] Found the project on Github. Made an issue for it.
  11. That would indeed be a great addition. Suggestion for contract parameters. Not all combinations are logical. # of satellites Single, Two, Constellation Orbit: Low orbit (80-500km), Medium orbit (500-1500km), High orbit (>1500), Synchronous (2 863.33), Semi-synchronous, Mjolnir, Inclinations 0, 90, 180, 270, random number Number and type of antennae / dishes Body Kerbin, etc.
  12. Indeed, thanks for everything Stupid_Chris. This mod really adds to the game.
  13. Had this bug too. Shortest way to trigger it for me was: Build and launch a ship (can list parts if necessary). Orbit around Kerbin Plot escape trajectory Encounter Mun Go to Map Create Maneuver node Leave map screen ... bam ... Camera moves away. Ship experiences sudden acceleration and disintegrates. Used mods: Deadly Reentry DebRefund EditorExtensions EngineerRedux EnhancedNavBall FAR KJR KAC SelectRoot MJ2 DockingAlignment PreciseNode RealChute RemoteTech TacLifeSupport Toolbar Disabled mod for mod until the problem disappeared. Tested this for following mods: Deadly Reentry DebRefund FAR KJS KAC MechJeb2 PreciseNode RemoteTech So far only disabling RealChute made the problem go away. And re-enabling it made the problem reappear. Even though the craft in question does NOT contain a Real Chute part. (It does contain a modulemanager config for the normal chutes though).

  14. Could you describe the situation more fully? What I gather from your post: - An ?unmanned? ship to Eve containing three probes, two of which are to be satellites and the third one a lander. - The two satellites have two omni's and two dishes. Which ones? 2x 88-88 + DP-10 + Comm-16? - The lander has two omni's and one dish. Which ones? 88-88 + DP-10 + Comm-16? - How did you check whether the satellites are connected? - What is each dish targetting? - What satellites are orbiting Kerbin? - What dishes do they have? - What are those dishes targetting? - Is any of those targets "Active Vessel"?
  15. Not sure about NovaPunch, but for me RT2 was compatible with: B9 Aerospace BoulderCo City and Lights Crew Manifest Davon Supply Mod Deadly Reentry Docking Struts Editor Extensions Kerbal Engineer Redux EnhancedNavBall Ferram Aerospace Research Kerbal Attachment System Kerbal Joint Reinforcement Hyper Edit KSP Interstellar KSPX KWRocketry ModularFuelTanks MultipleSavesDA NaviFish PreciseNode RealChute RLA Stockalike SelectRoot Targetron TAC LifeSupport The only incompatibility I've found is with MechJeb2, and that's fixable by disabling the signal delay in RT2.
  16. Great mod! Would it be possible for the chutes to come with more realistic minimum deployment altitudes. Somehow it comes across as unrealistic to have chutes with minimum deployment occurring around 40km up. I'm aware I can both tweak this in the config-files and in the VAB. I'm just not sure what the correct altitude should be. Just that 40-45km is still the area in which DRE is trying to burn up my rocket and that chutes would be ripped, baked and burnt all at the same time. Probably it's something like 2-5km for normal chutes and 5-15km for drogues.
  17. Bump. Anyone else experiencing this bug or any idea how to solve it?
  18. Of course not It's just the most common thing players new to this mod don't think about... Including this one.
  19. Based on what Oktav wrote it's likely that the problem is between Kerbin and the satellite with the 88-88. And the 88-88 is a dish. From what I gather he had satellites around Kerbin set to target ACTIVE VESSEL. Which means his satellite around Moho has a link while it has focus. But as soon as he focussed on the lander, those satellites around Kerbin are no longer targetting his relay satellite around Moho and the connection breaks down.
  20. Question: IS the satellite connected because the other vessels targetting it are targetting ACTIVE VESSEL? Or are those vessels setup to really target that satellite?
  21. Did some quick math examples (which I confirmed in a sandbox): Mission Control (75 Mm) communicating with a Communotron 16 (2,5 Mm) Max Distance = 2,5 Mm (smallest one) + square root of (2,5 Mm * 75 Mm) = ±16 Mm. That's well past the Mün. GX-128 (400 Gm) communicating with DTS-M1 (50 Mm) Max Distance = 50 Mm (smallest one) + square root of (50 Mm * 400 Gm) = ± 4,5 Gm. That's over 90 times the range. GX-128 (400 Gm) communicating with 88-88 (40 Gm) Max Distance = 40 Gm (smallest one) + square root of (40 Gm * 400 Gm) = 166 Gm. That's over 4 times the range. What does this mean for common combinations and distances. Twin 88-88's could never reliably cover Kerbin - Dres (if both were directly opposite the distance > 40 Gm). With a KR-14 in Kerbin orbit and an 88-88 on your probe you can now reach Kerbin even if the phase angle is almost 180° (naturally not exactly 180° because then Kerbol is in the way). Previously Kerbin - Jool or Kerbin - Eeloo would require a combination of any of the GX-128 and CommTech-1. With this option, a GX-128 in Kerbin orbit can talk to a probe carrying a 88-88 even if it's orbiting Eeloo while Eeloo is at it's apoapsis.
  22. Unfortunately there's nothing then to be done until someone can consistently reproduce/trigger the bug or hope someone finds it.
  23. I'm having trouble collecting antimatter. I have a station in a circular and equatorial orbit around Kerbin (900km). It has 16 AM-collector parts. With focus it averages about 64 units of AM per day. Without focus it doesn't produce any AM. I read this was a bug that in november last year. But I'm under the impression this bug was squashed... Did I miss something?
  24. Are you using the hotfixed version (http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/threads/56399-0-23-RemoteTech-2-v1-3-3-Late-Christmas-Edition?p=901076&viewfull=1#post901076)? If so, are you seeing similar amounts and frequency of duplication and blue sky?
