For those of you who don't know what part I'm talking about, it's this bad boy right here. If you do know what I'm talking about, then here's the problem. I'm building a 4-engine airliner that can carry up to 36 people (and has a probe core for remote-controlled use). However, whenever I get up to the desired altitude and airspeed (5,000 m MSL at 300 m/s or more), the wings tend to overheat. One of the test runs ended up with a wing exploding, in fact. The airliner (first prototype) during its ascent. Neat that it can get past 343 m/s, huh. Ha
Hello, I'm not quite sure if this is any bug (I'm using some mods) or if there's some unknown multiplier within the core heat calculations. Perhaps someone here can help me to unterstand. In my setting I landed on Minmus with a level 2 engineer. The ship has 2 Drill-O-Matic Junior's attached to a fuel tank and attached to this tank a large radiator panel. Nothing else (of any heat importance) is conected with this fuel tank. There's no termal control system on the whole ship. Now each each Drill-O-Matic Junior has 50 KW max cooling and the large radiator panel has 200 KW of core he
On Rura Penthe I am running a convert-o-tron 250 which requires 200 KW of Cooling and a Max Cooling of 750 KW two Drill'o'matic excavators requiring 200 KW between them and a max of 200KW between each this seems to be a total of 400kw required my base has 4 x Medium Thermal Control System fins - each with a core heat xfer of 250 KW, max cooling of 19494 KW surely this would be more than enough to keep everything cool, so why are the fins glowing red hot, running at more than 100% ( keeps flickering to 100.5%) and sparking? I shut down the drills and ore processing ( the ta
How do the radiators work? I'm building a space station and I put a Convert-O-Tron 125 with 4 medium Thermal Control Systems mounted directly to it but it over heats in seconds. When I look at the panels I see "cooling" has 14%. My question is: How is that number calculated and when can I do to improve the Efficiency. Thanks in advance!
