  2. From Ground To Sky By SixAndAHalfMen From Ground To Sky Is an Alternate History verging after the Apollo 17 Mission. Instead of the apollo program ending and skylab starting with George McGovern winning the 1972 election and shortly later increasing NASA's budget. After NASA's sizeable budget increase, the main objective is to put a sustained human presence on the moon. which brings us to... 1973 WIP
  3. whenever open ksp and try to use parachutes, it either -shows deployed in the vab and had a tab in the staging column but never works i saw this happen in parachutes from mods -not deployed in vab, no tab in staging column and not being able to be deployed while in flight happens in parachutes from stock https://imgur.com/gallery/76ejXcS in vab,, bdb's Saturn v with parachutes deployed https://imgur.com/gallery/xzPrqvY stock, outside vab no deploy chute tab open in staging column mod list link https://imgur.com/gallery/OzlSlap how do i fix this
  4. The Kerbal Air Force Rearmament Challenge CHALLENGE SUSPENDED The Kerbal Airforce is in dire straits (not the band, although they are amazing). A recent strategic attack on their hangars and airfields has wiped out all of their combat-related assets, and we need YOU to design an aircraft (anything that flies, anything.) as a measure that will give us the material advantage in future combat situations.

  6. Hi, I hope this is the right subforum to post such contraptions. I tried to build some airplanes that capture the charme of a past that never was. As you can tell, I am quite fond of flying boats and float planes and a huge fan of old school open cockpits. I really, really whish there were more part mods to support such crafts. First up: the White Swan MK1
  7. After the failure of the original Sentinel Design Bureau, all funding was cut and the agency put on life support. Luckily, however, it was revived by the latest administration in the great nation of United East Kerbonia! Now it stands to expand kerbalkind through the planets and moons of the Kerbol system, but first, it has to start all over. This is a rescaled 2x career using a whole slew of mods and custom visuals based off of Spectra. my goal is to somewhat reaalistically explore the kerbolar system and colonize it, and maybe go interstellar. Link To The Original Table of Contents ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Chapter 1 | Starting Somewhere Chapter 2 | Strange Rockets ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Chapter 1 | Starting Somewhere When the Sentinel Design Bureau was revived, a new rocket had to be made to make up for lost tech. Building off of the blueprints that were discovered being used as Bill Kerman's coffee napkins. The result was a brand-new family of sounding rockets. Behold, the aptly-named GoUp 1! With a BANG, the GoUp 1-1 lifts off into the air. Unfortunately, the stability on the first stage was . . . questionable at best And the second stage ignited upside-down But, in the end, science was gained . . . And a new rocket was developed, the GoUp 2! A mighty rocket, with only 1 stage but way more Delta-v It made it higher than ever, but unfortunately, the antennae and batteries were forgotten, leading to no science gain, a terrible misfortune Luckily, in the GoUp 2-2 mission, this was remedied, and science was gained And that end the the first three missions in kerbalkind's rise to the stars.
  8. I installed some visual mods to make my game a bit nicer to look at, but now I found out the kerbals visors are pink. I dont know why, or what mods are doing this. help?

  9. The sun, like always, rises to the east of the Space Center on... Earth? This is not Kerbin, but instead its larger, wetter cousin. With only one moon and a higher atmosphere, it will more of a challenge to go to space today. But the Kerbals will persist, with boosters and courage and stupidity and boosters! Welcome to the... JNSQ KSRSS Space Race! Hi all! You may remember me from the original JNSQ Space Race, where after technical issues I played the Dressian National Rocketry Association. We're doing it again, but this time in a 2.5x scaled KSRSS, for added Flavour™. Rules are similar to last time: -Career Mode -Medium difficulty +Require Signal For Control -Mods encouraged, as long as they're not cheaty -Reverts and quicksaves Are permitted, but don't abuse them. This is mostly for fending off the Kraken, let your doomed machinations tumble to the ground! These rules will be updated as the race nears its beginning However, other rules such as progression and the scoring system, tech tree mods, contruction time, lifesupport etc. are yet to be decided, as I'd like to have you input on that first! The competitors are as follows: 1. The Neo-Dressian Spacefaring Foundation The NDSF is an organisation founded by eccentric businesskerbs Nertia (not at all related to the excellent modder and KSP2 Dev of a similar name) and Eeloon Kerman. It began when the pair were out on what their agents call a 'Danger Trip' (I think some of them are still hyperventilating) in which they discovered the ruins of the old DNRA facility. There they found an old Imperial Dressian flag, bleached by the sun and torn from wind-strewn rubble and inquisitive wildlife. Judging from what remained of the facility around it, this flag was originally destined for the surface of the Moon, but it was a destiny that was never realised due to the demise of the DNRA... until now. Nertia and Eeloon knew that they needed to take the Kerbals to space once again... For realsies, this time! To this end, the Neo-Dressian Spacefaring Foundation was formed. Similarly to the DNRA before it, it sported the national flag of the Dressian Confederacy, but as most of its funding came right out of Nertia's own Gluon Corporation, its logo was plastered front-and-center of the NDSF's flag. While it still recieved government subsidies, the NDSF was far less reliant on them than the DNRA, this hopefully meant it could take a few hits financially before it went under. 2. Space Agency of the Western Hemisphere (SAoWH) It's known for its long acronyms and lack of creativity in naming, and every rocket, spacecraft, kerbal, station and base will have long acronyms as their names. Despite its name, it's actually just a small country that forgot its own name throughout its history and is now called "Small country in the west of earth" with SCiWE as its acronym. The naming schemes in this country always cause troubles in international relations. Even though it is a very small and unimportant country, its space technology is surprisingly advanced. The race will begin when we have enough people, and once some of the above rules have been agreed upon. So go forth, and form your own space agencies!
  10. Hello all! I have just completed building the ship Hail Mary from Mr. Weir's latest novel. Now, obviously there are some inaccuracies, one of the most glaring of which I will detail below. (!SPOILERS TO FOLLOW!) The ship in the novel was powered by an alien micro-organism called Astrophage, emitting infrared light at the 25.984 micron frequency. To simulate this I have simply included a transmission module from KSP's interstellar extended mod (henceforth referred to as KSP I-E) in my engine module which was incorporated in the config file of one of their lasers. Then, I added in a new resource labeled "Astrophage", with the approximate density of a cell (even more spoilers; in Weir's book a huge panspermia event occurred at Tau Ceti which means that all living organisms have the same rough properties and hence, same structures.) I then incorporated this new resource into the fuel tanks provided by KSP I-E, and voila! I now added the fuel tanks to fit the correct volume as specified by Weir. Except... not really. For some reason the fuel tanks only hold about 900 tons of fuel as opposed to the 2,000 they should. Despite following Weir's details as closely as I could ("largest diameter they could launch was about 4 meters... three fuel tanks side by side... estimate they take up about 75 percent of the ship's volume), I find that Astrophage has to be either too dense to be a reasonable cell or, more likely, I have messed the proportions up. With all that ranting out of the way, I will below post Mr. Weir's Hail Mary specifications as opposed to my vessel. Weir's ship specifications: Dry mass 100 tons, wet mass 2100 tons, delta-v 0.92c (acceleration to and deceleration from), 3 crew, induced comas, "a few months" of food supplies, 125m^3 internal habitable volume, ~500m^3 total volume My adaptation's specifications: Dry mass 104 tons, wet mass 1012 tons, delta-v not yet measured accurately due to time, DeepFreeze chambers (which Weir unfortunately explicitly said DO NOT EXIST on his ship.. grr.. are there any other mods that can simulate reduced consumption of resources while not eliminating it completely?), 70m^3 internal volume, 7 months of air and ~4 months of food/water for 3 crew. More details to follow on the layout shortly. Thank you all for your time reading this, and I welcome any feedback or input from any fellow readers to try to improve the design replication!
  11. Kerbal States Forever Game Mode: Science Sandbox. Jingoist mode; on. Spiritual successor to America Rising. Chapter One – A Higher Frontier Launch 1: Vanguard 1 / Vanguard SLV 1 Year 1, Day 1 - 0001 Hours Mission: Technology Test satellite to medium Kerbin orbit. Location: Kerbal Space Center Agency: KSN The honor of launching the world's first satellite went to the "civilian" team of the Navy Research Laboratory (NRL), headed by Rosen Kerman. Based out of the Kerbal States' premier launch site at Kerbal Space Center, the NRL team was a major player in the space program from Day One. Launch 2: Explorer 1 / Juno II 1 Year 1, Day 4 - 0434 Hours Mission: Science satellite to medium Kerbin orbit. Location: Green Sands Proving Grounds Agency: KSARMY Second to orbit a satellite, but not necessarily second-best was the Army's team out of Green Sands Proving Grounds. Led by the world's leading rocket engineer, Werhner Von Kerman, the Army was poised from the beginning to become the premier agency for the development of satellites and spacecraft. Launch 3: Explorer 2 / Juno II 2 Year 1, Day 16 - 0538 Hours Mission: Science satellite to medium Kerbin orbit. Location: Green Sands Proving Grounds Agency: KSARMY Von Kerman was quick to launch a second Explorer after the first, in many ways only to cement his team's ability to repeat their success. Launch 4: Vanguard 2 / Vanguard SLV 2 Year 1, Day 29 - 0253 Hours Mission: Science satellite to medium Kerbin orbit. Location: Kerbal Space Center Agency: KSN The second of NRL's satellites included an experiment package as a proving flight for using satellites for scientific research. Launch 5: Pioneer 1 / Jupiter Able 1 (J3-AB3) Year 1, Day 47 - 0018 Hours Mission: Science probe to high Mun orbit. Location: Kerbal Space Center Agency: KSARMY/KSN The Pioneer project was the first direct collaboration between the services to jointly launch a series of exploratory space probes. Each service was assigned the lead to launch one space probe to Kerbin's moon. Whilst the Navy and Army immediately joined forces to produce the Jupiter Able launch vehicle, the Air Force remained aloof. The first Pioneer was NRL's space probe.
  12. Introduction I've been playing stock KSP, or visual mods only, for a while and reckoned it's time to have a go at a modded career mode playthrough. I wanted something in the same vein as stock but with more and different challenges. In particular I wanted crewed spaceflight to be more demanding, and uncrewed spaceflight to be more autonomous. I settled on the following mods with UnKerballed Start, kOS, and Snacks! the headline performers. Episode 1 Mission 1: Sprite 1 As in stock KSP, there's not much design space for the first rocket, but unlike the 'Jumping Flea' it will be a completely unguided sounding rocket. Each of my playthroughs have a different naming scheme. This time round I'm using mythical creatures - so here's Sprite A. It only needs to reach 200m so I'm only partly fuelling it. Light the fuse and watch it go... 'Catastrophic failure'? Nope, I fulfilled the 'First flight' and 'gather scientific data from Kerbin' contracts! Onward to greater things!
  13. Hey everyone. I recently upgraded my OS and didn't think that I'd need my game save and so I didn't copy it over. Once I finished the upgrade and downloaded the game again, I realized that the latest version of KSP isn't compatible with a lot of my mods. Is there a way that I can get a specific version of KSP to point ckan at? I bought on both steam and GOG (long story. bought twice, once in 2015 and again in 2018), so if there is a way that is possible on only one store, I'm fine with that.

  18. Forgotten Space Program Latest Post: 2021-07-07 - Legitimate Salvage -- It's happened again. Those well meaning kerbals ran off and completely forgot about their space program. Maybe there was a global crisis. Maybe they ran out of funds. Maybe the Kraken ate the ship Jeb and the Bs were in. Or maybe it was just snack time and the cheese dip was really, really good. Unfortunately nobody remembers what went wrong because nobody remembers being there. Space? Whazzat? And so years pass. Eventually an eccentric millionaire stumbles on the ruins of the long-forgotten program. Trailers. Sheds. Run-down labs. A dirt runway. Factories scattered here and there in the nearby countryside. Exploding barrels of fleas. Sharp metal bits. Gumball machines. Nuclear waste. The usual rust of a long forgotten industry. A few quick phone calls and some thousand signatures later and The Boss became the owner of their very own space program. And that's when the fun started. -- Thread of the Month: May 2016 -- Table of Contents Volume 1: Forgotten Volume 1 Sequence 1 2015-12-03 - Forgotten Space Program, The Hydrogen Flights (this post) 2015-12-04 - Hydrogen's Last Blast, Noble Helium, Orbital Helium 2015-12-06 - Sweet Lithium, Beryllium Spheres, Boron to be Wild 2015-12-10 - The Age of the Universe, Boron Into The Mün, Beryllium Relic 2015-12-11 - Carbon Testing, The Carbon 6, Carbon 1 2015-12-16 - Carbon Scoring, High Carbon 2015-12-17 - The Dangers of C-4, Carbon For Who?, Beryllium-Coated Lies 2015-12-20 - More Boron Contract Missions..., :C=C: 2015-12-22 - 95 Years, 139 Days, 27 Minutes Volume 1 Sequence 2 2015-12-24 - A Nitrogen One, Thing C 2015-12-26 - A Little More Nitrogen, And A Dash Of Oxygen 2015-12-29 - Fluorine 1 2016-01-01 - The Six Moons of Kerbin, Nitrogen T-4, Thing A 2016-01-02 - Fixing Kelgee, Walking on Thin Nitrogen, Nitrogen Take 6, More Fluorine For Better Teeth, Oxygen Perfected 2016-01-05 - Nitrogen T-7 Volume 1 Sequence 3 2016-01-11 - The Bright Bright Neon Lights, Neon Sizzle, Neon Clones, Under The Heavy Neon Glow 2016-01-12 - Delayed Return 2016-01-16 - Salty Minmus 2016-01-18 - Taking Pictures For Fun and Profit 2016-01-20 - Release!, Return to Flight 2016-01-23 - Asylum Run, ...

NOT Crtl + Enter. Shift + Enter.) -- In something of a departure from my usual routine, this will be a mod-"heavy" playthrough focusing largely on the wonderful Engineering Tech Tree. Expect frequent and smaller posts, usually the same day of the mission or a very short time later. I will attempt to keep this save going for the indefinite future, but can make no promises that I won't forget what I've done and start over again. Again. And, seeing as none of the kerbals know what's out there, we may see some relics and wrecks from my previously forgotten space programs. Difficulty is my usual fare, a Career Mode game with the normal difficulty settings, no crew respawn, etc: Mods in Use (as/of KSP v1.4.5) Note: Many parts from mods not listed (or listed under previous versions) are still present on spacecraft, in flight, but are "retired" and have been edited (by me) so they no longer appear in the VAB. Older Mods in Use (for previous KSP v1.3.1) Older Mods in Use (for previous KSP v1.2.2) Older Mods in Use (for previous KSP v1.1.3) Older Mods in Use (for previous KSP v1.0.5) Let's get this show on the road now, ok? -- The Hydrogen Flights The "exploding barrels of fleas" were apparently not made of fleas, but were instead created to dispose of them. (Which might explain the fire and smoke.) As far as the geniuses in the engineering department could determine, the intent was to aim the open end of the barrel at the fleas and "watch them burn." The Boss thought of a different use after three interns and one such barrel flew violently through the wall of the lab and into the waters of Booster Bay. The little green geeks quickly dug around to find the parts they needed: gizmos to measure air pressure, a gumball machine painted a dark grey with a "computer" stuffed inside, a flea barrel to strap it all atop, and a large silk blanket to carry the gizmos safely back to the ground. The "computer" was little more than a couple of vacuum tubes and an alarm clock, all held together with loosely assembled wires. The clock was to ignite the flea barrel, trigger the gizmos and detach the gumball machine; the vacuum tubes were there to make it look awesome. Lacking a clever naming scheme, The Boss painted "Hydrogen 1" on the side and the three formerly flying interns rolled it to a nearby mound of dirt. Only they must've messed up the clock while moving the H-1, as the flea barrel ignited late, flew off in a weird direction, and the gumball machine detached early. Regardless, the gizmos took proper readings and proved The Boss right: These barrels weren't built for killing fleas, but for helping them fly. Science points galore! Somewhat unexpectedly, a representative from the Kerbal First Record Keeping Society showed up to give The Boss a few shiny plaques: First Launch, new Speed Records of 25m/s and 80m/s, and First Landing. The prize money was spent on some bags of corn chips and the interns were sent back to work. There was still time enough in the day for another launch. Same gumball machine with a big barrel of science (which had been previously tested on the mound), all atop yet another flea barrel. The Boss named it the "Hydrogen 2" and everybody lined up to watch it fly. The H-2 flew higher and slightly faster than anything yet recorded (that one catapult accident doesn't count), resulting in yet more plaques from the record keepers: Altitude records of 500m and 2km. The money was just enough to buy some queso dip to go with the corn chips, and The Boss kicked in a few extra kerbucks for soda. And so on the first day they partied, and The Boss was happy, for The Boss saw it was good. Navigation: Next Post
  19. So, one day I was installing some mods, and everything went well. then this popped up. I tried clearing my game data folder, but it still appeared. please help me!
  20. So, my experiment station is on the far side of the Mün. A solution is usually "Hey, let's connect using a relay. Easy peasy, right?"' Nope. These guys have pretty good relays, GREAT connection all around-- just not to each other. Yes, I've looked at other threads, like https://steamcommunity.com/app/220200/discussions/0/135510669598463932/, , and other things. There a setting or something? Maybe my mods are a bit of an issue? Info (though none of my mods really do relay stuff, I... I think): Version 1.10.1.2939 Network view: Actual Relays: Any help very much apprec'd :)
  21. Greetings everyone, Originally designed as an orbital freight ship, the heavy SSTO "broadsword" saw many months of augmentations to make it the perfect multi-role space craft. The initial design parameters emphasized endurance and maximum payload capacity, with the goal of reaching any celestial body's orbit on a single tank of gas. The spacecraft was never intended to touch down on any other planetary surfaces, and would rely on smaller towed "fighter SSTOs" for refueling missions. Unfortunately, achieving the initial goal pushed the total part count to 170, making it not worthwhile as a potential "aircraft carrier". The spaceplane was put in cold storage until Kerbin's military strategists wanted to explore its role as an orbital bomber, capable of delivering hundreds of 1.5 MT nuclear warheads at a moment's notice, undetected. This initiative called for a series of "survivability tests", which would push the airframe design to its limits. After some great successes between scientists and military strategists, a final design was approved that could withstand the conditions of all celestial bodies. The H-SSTO Broadsword Mk 6. Clocking in at roughly 1700 tons, with a width/wingspan of 74m, length of 83m, and relative height of 20m. This spacecraft carries about 6,670,000 units of liquid hydrogen fuel for its 11 nuclear, 8 VTOL, 2 SURGE, and 2 ARI reverse thrusting engines. In total the space plane is powered by 23 engines of various designs and purposes, as well as a large fission reactor. The nuclear engines do not consume fuel in any atmosphere. Maximum survivable airspeed is about 1800 m/s in low/less dense atmosphere, and 3500 m/s+ at higher altitudes. (I don't keep the throttle at more than 10% for non orbital atmospheric flight). It can transport a crew of 7 in the immediate cockpit and more in the additional crew compartments. Thanks to excellent usage of airframe integrated radiators and thermal control systems, the spaceplane can withstand the pulse of a thermonuclear weapon, as well as atmospheric entry up to 2,500 m/s. The broadsword is also capable of high G maneuvering, because of its strong structural integrity, variety of large control surfaces and thrust vectoring systems. The instrument suite was also enhanced to feature advanced communication systems (including a detachable orbital relay), celestial analysis equipment, and every resource converter known to kerbal kind. Despite the ~3.5 thrust to weight ratio, the spaceplanes mass places great stress on its landing gear, making it difficult to land or take off without employing the STOL or VTOL capabilities. This is largely due to a lack of advancements in landing gear technology, and so the broadsword can only survive touchdown at less than 5 m/s vertical velocity. A skilled pilot can easily operate within these parameters. Surprisingly, the design allows for incredible buoyancy, making landings on liquid bodies not only possible, but more attractive. Lastly, the spaceplane features a robotic arm, two (two crewed) escape pods, AESA air to ground radar, 360 degree track while scan air to air radar, surveillance cameras, two drills, and many other fun gadgets. It also features a nose cargo ramp for deploying vehicles on extraterrestrial bodies. When fitted for military operations, the spacecraft can deploy every weapon possible, from artillery to lasers to nuclear weapons. (Note I have around 50 mods, and I don't know how many were used to complete this spacecraft). Here are some pictures: More bombing pics:
  22. What is this? In real life the Space Shuttle Program was originally supposed to make access to space cheap and easy, flying up to every two weeks and being the US’ sole launch vehicle. For various reasons the Space Shuttle never lived up to these early goals, but in this KSP play-through I’m recreating the program somewhere between what it was supposed to be and what it actually was. I’m probably never going to get to a launch every two weeks, but I’ll be flying frequently and including payloads planned for the Shuttle but never flown like the Shuttle-Centaur liquid-fueled upper stage. While I’m not going to be keeping detailed tracks of budgets or anything, I am going to be assuming that my budget is larger and supports more planetary/science missions than the IRL NASA budget did and plan fun payloads accordingly. (Mid-1980s Viking 3 lander to Duna? Moved-up and expanded Mariner Mark II Program? Yes, please!). The Game I’m playing in Sandbox because I want all of the shuttle parts available immediately, and generally want to do things as I see fit for my recreation (which is not always the way KSP wants to do things). I am, however, self-imposing other rules for verisimilitude; for instance, the Space Shuttle Main Engines cannot be re-started. I am not allowing reverting to launch or VAB, and while I am quicksaving at key points I will reload a quicksave ONLY in cases of gross pilot error during launch or landing. [Edit: having played for a while I am not sticking as closely to the quicksaving rule as I'd planned...] I’m renaming most of my Kerbals (except for Jeb, Bill, Bob, and Val, obviously) using a random name generator, mostly so that my mission patches don’t just say “Kerman Kerman Kerman Kerman Kerman ….” Mods: TAC Life Support, Dang It! Continued, Decal Stickers R2.0, Tantares (after February 1986, parts used only on SSSR mission). I may add other part mods later but don’t intend to significantly change the functionality of the game beyond the mods I already have. The Metagame In order to do my own homebrew simulations of things not included in the base KSP game, I’ve written Python scripts to tell me how long the Shuttle needs to spend being processed after each mission, and whether the weather is clear for launch or landing on each day, including a forecast for the next week (based on real-life Kennedy Space Center and Edwards Air Force Base weather data for the dates in question). I’m also using the calendar Year 1=1981, Year 2=1982, etc., and split the 426-day Kerbin year into 12 months, each of which has 5 more days than our real-life calendar (except for February, which has 6 more). The Dirty Secret The shuttle’s crew compartment is actually two Mk3 cockpits clipped together It was the only way I could get the orbiter’s balance right so that it would be stable during both hypersonic flight and landing, and has the added benefit that I can fit the same crew of 7 or 8 used by the IRL Shuttle. Mission Reports For each mission I’ll provide a mission written from the perspective of the kerbals, including mission patches and screenshots. Once I start flying I’ll edit this post to include a table of contents/quick-links below. Table of Contents/Summary of Missions/Mission Patch Galleries Shuttle Flights: STS-1 - (1981-) [A gallery of all of the full-sized patches can be found here] SSSR Flights: Svoboda Base Module - (1986-) Preview Following extensive simulator tests for craft design and years of construction of testing, the Space Shuttle Columbia was rolled out to Pad 39A at Kerbal Space Center on February 34, 1981. After a successful Flight Readiness Test Firing during which the three Space Shuttle Main Engines were fired for 23 seconds on the pad on March 20, the shuttle now stands ready for its first flight. Astronauts Jebediah Kerman and Abe Dykstra are scheduled to launch on April 3 to take Columbia on a 2-day test flight. All eyes on Kerbin turn towards the brave astronauts and the shining winged rocket straining towards liftoff… Columbia completes Flight Readiness Test Firing, March 20, 1981.
  23. KSECA: Kerbal Space Exploration and Colonization Association ... Kerbin, KSC, Mission Control Gene: Good morning. (smiles) Wernher: (looks up, looking tired) What you look so happy about we've just been up all night. Gene: We just got the license to start launching Kerballed missions. Wernher: (shocked) Really. (steadies himself) Ok I'll get making some blueprints. You phone the others. (runs out) ... Basically this is a series of missions that will be centred around colonizing planets and moons using MKS and the Near Future Series of mods. With a few others from USI, Nertea and some others. I will post a mod list later. This will be done in 1.12.1 with both expansions. This will mainly be a series of missions with some story in-between. I will try to do this with some form of realistic progression but without testing. And skipping everything before Gemini I the ISS construction. Hope you enjoy ... Kerbin, KSC, Administration Building Jeb: Gene, I've already flown plenty of sounding rockets for you. (yawns) I'm not flying more. Val: (Ignoring Jeb) So what is it? Gene: What? Val: Why are we here, Gene? I was enjoying that holiday. Gene: Well, we have got... (Wernher and Mortimer walk in) Mortimer: A licence for launching manned rockets that's great. Gene: What a way to ruin my moment! (Walks out looking huffy) Val, Your flying the first rocket. Jeb: What have I done? (confused) Mortimer: Well goodnight. (leaves looking awkward) ... The headcanon is that Gene started a space program 50 years before recruiting his best friends to join him. But when they came to build new designs to land on the Mun they all failed and the government of Kerbin stripped the of their manned licence for safety reasons. Gene was too nervous to launch anything more than souding rockets. But then it was given back and a new age of space exploration will begin.
  24. I've been having a problem with my game. Sometimes when I change scenes some of the mod icons on the toolbar will start duplicating themselves, the only ones that seem to do this are persistent rotation, servo controller, and waypoint manager, these icons also seem to duplicate themselves on the main menu when I quit from my save. I'm not sure what's causing this but I'm going to attach my mod list both debug and output logs and then image of the problem any help is appreciated. Nearly all my mods were installed through CKAN. Thanks in advance! debug log Output log picture of problem, (couldn't insert)
