Version: 1.12.4 Windows Problem: When attempting to load any active vessel for the first time after starting the game, the craft violently shakes with an "approaching G Limits" warning and explodes. Reloading the last quicksave returns the vessel to normal, at the cost of any progress since then. However, for some craft, the game just crashes upon attempting to load (again, only after first starting up the game).

Hi all I've been playing with 1.2 and the G-force option. It's fun once you turn the tolerance down enough that you have to start actually caring about it; the defaults are very forgiving. However, I'm pretty stuck on a contract to get two tourists to fall unconscious while sub-orbital. It doesn't accept them losing consciousness in a flight that then becomes sub-orbital, nor losing consciousness on re-entry. They must lose consciousness while sub-orbital. The problem is that KSP doesn't consider Gs from centrifugal (go away nit-pickers) force. I built a rocket-powered centrifuge that got the tourist module out on the end of a beam spinning so fast the navball was just flashing. Nope, they didn't care, and nor did the parts, even though they would've really been turned to a thin paste on the walls before the whole thing fell apart. So you have to use linear acceleration. But none of the reasonable-sized engines have the grunt; KSP doesn't have very high TWR short-burn engines so you have to fake it with under-fuelled big boosters. So you need lots of boosters and/or to launch a truly ridiculous engine with a teeny amount of fuel. At .5-g tolerance I could do it with 4 Hammer SRBs each fueled to 1/3 to optimise TWR, but launching that is a pain. Two S1 SRBs launching a 3rd fueled to ~20% did the job better. But it's an expensive pain relative to the utter pittance that tourism contracts pay - and "turn my brain to paste while in orbit" ones don't pay a useful amount more. If you start your blackout burn while still in high atmosphere you have to time it carefully so the lose consciousness after you reach 70k, since *being* unconscious or *regaining* consciousness when in space isn't good enough, you must *lose* consciousness in space. Right now a player on default G-force settings will have to launch a cluster of 8 part-fueled Hammer SRBs or something absurd, which means a pretty serious vessel just to get them up there. I really think this is a bug as it stands. Since rotational Gs don't count, either these missions should count losing consciousness in flight after sub-orbital, pay a LOT more, or just not be generated. Even if the tourists were made to have more easily squished little brains it'd still be too hard on default G tolerance. What I really want of course is rotational G to count so I can rocket-centrifuge their little brains to mush. But I'm pretty sure that's tricky for the physics system. Is it meant to be this tough and unrewarding, or is it just not quite baked yet? Screenshots: http://imgur.com/a/semhA This finally worked: This ... I really wish this had. Or the version I originally did that launched into orbit, anyway. But no centrifugal G force = no kerbal paste at 200+ rpm: Ignition! It's not exploding, it's meant to look like that. Really. See the pretty green G meter? ... even though it's spinning so fast it's stretching out impossibly: Oh, also, thanks for the awesome Linux support and lack of DRM. I bought a second copy ￼just because you guys rock and I've been playing since 0.8.x. The 1.2 update fixes the Intel graphics driver issues too
You know who you are. If FAR isn't installed, then it's not KSP. You've ripped the wings off a hundred planes a thousand times. You have PWM modulation for the pitch up key in muscle memory. Now, it'ts time to show off. Peg the g meter. The rules are simple, and the objective is even simpler. Objective: Build a plane that can generate and survive the highest gee-forces possible. Post an F3 screenshot of your plane (landed or flying) showing the max g-force as well as vessel mass. Short videos or even a gif of the attempt are always great too! Scoring is measured in kilonewtons, which is (the mass of your plane) x (your max g-forces survived) x (9.8). Rules- 0.) You have to have FAR installed, with all default settings. 1.) Your plane has to survive the attempt. (This is a flying challenge, not a crashing challenge) 2.) Your plane cannot have any stalling surfaces during the attempt. 3.) Your plane cannot have a TWR greater than 2. (This a plane challenge, not a rocket with wings challenge) 4.) You must perform your attempt in Kerbin's atmosphere. Other than that, have at it! All mods are in, nothing else I can think of is off limits. You get the spirit of the challenge by now I'm sure, which is pretty much make the most maneuverable plane possible. So far my best is 28 gees with a 1.2 ton plane, and after a bit more refinement I'll submit it! One submission per person on the leaderboard at a time, but feel free to one-up yourself as much as you want! Leaderboard: 1.) 2.) 3.) ...
