  1. Somethin I would like to see would be an SAS mode where the SAS tries its hardest to stay pointed at the angle it was facing in when enabled. Even if the player provides input, on release the craft would try to re-orient back to its initial angle. To actually change the craft's angle you would need to change the SAS mode or switch off the SAS, which can easily be done quickly with the F button. I think this would be useful for those crafts where you want to stay pointing in one direction, but the SAS slowly creeps away and you have to keep correcting it, leading to a loss of efficiency.
  2. I had a break from KSP for the best part of a year and so I'm still learning the differences between that and the current version. I'm sure I remember that it was possible to change the orientation of a Kerbal using a jetpack whilst in space. Now, it seems the little fellow will always snap back to its original orientation when you hit any thrust key. Is there a way to get him to face the way the camera is pointing, or otherwise change the direction she/he wants to face? If you are helmet first, trying to grab onto a ladder seems pretty impossible. Also, is there a way to make fine adjustments to your capsules orientation during re-entry? Cheers for any tips & advice Clipperride./ Withnail67
  3. So when I activate the decoupler my command pod and science lab seperate but camera and control stays with Rocket engine and fuel tanks. This happened after I restored a quicksave. It has also happened in the past after I reverted to the launch pad. I am sure there is a simple fix (I hope) but not seeing any key commands that transfer controls from one unit while in flight. Please help and thank you.
  4. Hi all, I got some problem about guidance and control with the vector. After nearly two years of gaming I decided it should be time to finally make a first trip outside of Kerbin sphere of influence and due to a closest launch window have chosen Duna. Here is the launcher : It's full stock and got a total of 12 Vectors with 4 at the main core and 8 in side boosters. Now here is the problem, the launcher use to be uncontrolable once it reach approx 100 m/s, it start to lean on pitch or roll without any inputs from me and with the SAS on and staying on manual (with a smooth less than 2g acceleration at 60% of thrust). I've read many other topics before where it was wrote to limit the engines gimbal to 5 or less, I tried it but she still was flipping quickly after 100 m/s, I even deactivate the gimbling on the boosters and just keep 5 fore the core vector, same results. So I've tried another version of it with 4 Mainsails and 8 Kickbacks to confirm if it was a design fault, in that configuration she flies pretty well and is stable, just a bit underpowered. It's enough for a Duna ride but for the next flight I would like to go to Moho and here will need the Vectors again. What can do that ? It's not an unique case for me, each other craft made with KS-25 used to be uncontrolables in any configuration tried, 1 central, 2 to 8 on sides.

  5. Do you guys know how to use rcs on a kerbal?
  6. Hi folks, I thought about a nice way to play a career for reality and for challenging reasons: I was wondering if it would be possible to have kind of a "Control Center" for your vessels, where you can - get a life-stream from their onboard-cameras (multiple vessels at once, different small windows) + time-delayed, - can send commands like in kRPC or kOS with RemoteTech handicaps- can store scripts for automatic execution (kOS, Remotech, MechJeb) - crewed flights can just be controlled via IVA(or remote and just with pilot on board - background processing (my sat on Duna changes inclination via script while i am controlling a rover on the mun via onboard-cam. - science experiments can only be done in EVA or via remote control - all together no 3rd person view and a command center to control all of them and check all their stats whenever u want. no "vessel switching". basically a combination of kOS, RemoteTech, MechJeb & kRPC but not just for the current vessel. Do u think something like this would be doable? would u liek to play this way in RPG-style? Edit: another way to describe it: -Imagine Telemachus combined with -kRPC and RemoteTech -some life-camera-feeds. and this for multiple vessels. There is no "current vessel" until u change to IVA in a pilot-crewed vessel
  7. Hi everybody. Ever Since version 1.1 I'm having trouble flying my spaceplanes. I really have to pitch slowly in order avoid flipping the entire vessel .i've tried lowering and increasing the authority limiter but that didn't help. The only workaround seems to be to use more SAS units, which doesn't feel right ... is there something I'm missing?i hope ypu guys can help. Here's an example of a typical plane:
  8. I've been flying planes without SAS more frequently to obtain a smoother flight, and now with 1.1 there's an option to dedicate the reaction wheel control to SAS only, Pilot only, and normal. However a few things are missing I believe. 1) Ability to set Pilot control, SAS control, or Normal control to control surfaces. 2) Ability to change Reaction wheel mode to Dampener, allowing you to dampen your rotation along the x,y, and z axis. This would allow for smoother craft turning, without the jerky movement we have currently. 3) Ability to adjust the dampener of reaction wheels (along x,y and z axis individually or as a whole),engine vectors, steering wheels, and control surfaces so you're not forced to change your attitude quickly and suddenly if you dont want to. I know how stubborn you are. 4) Ability to set the Vector control of engines to Pilot only and SAS only, as well as Normal. 5) Ability to create presets for control surfaces and bind them to an action group.
  9. I love the rocket physics, but airplane are still unrealistic. Real airplanes should recover the roll and pitching moments, with a decent design of the center of mass and lift, and use the engine thrust to increase or reduce the altitude. Right now it is more like an arcade game to struggle with the controls while the airplane spins uncontrollable.
  10. I launched a mission in career mode recently, as a flyby of Minmus. I intercepted completed the flyby, and on the way back, I got the message "Jebediah Kerman refuses to work." I had forgotten about my install of USI-LS, and it seems I had exceded the time that a Kerbal could go without "snacks". I uninstalled USI-LS, and rebooted the game. I went to the tracking center, selected my craft, and tried to take control. The "Fly" option was greyed out, and I could not take control of the craft. I looked at the crew menu for the craft, and it said that Jebediah Kerman was a tourist. I returned to the main menu, edited the perisistent.sfs file (crew section) and change 'type = Tourist' to 'type = Crew' and 'trait = Tourist' to 'trait = Pilot'. I loaded the save, went to the craft in the tracking station, and it told me Jebediah was Crew, but it still would not let me fly the craft. What variable do I have to edit to make it let me control the craft? If there isn't one, is there a variable that I could change to let me recover the craft?
  11. I've been working on some parts for a mod I'm making, and I'm having trouble with my control surface part. The part is similar to the delta-deluxe winglet in that it has a built-in control surface, which I attempted to do by having the control surface as a separate mesh which I assigned the module to. It is mostly working, but it rotates around the wrong axis. I tried re-orienting it in Unity, and it didn't change, and I tried re-doing the axes in blender but it didn't carry over into Unity. How can I make the control surface rotate about the correct axis?
