  1. Before posting feature requests or bug reports, please read the FAQ. FAQ Works with stock aerodynamics and FAR Reportedly works with deadly reentry real solar system Rescaled Kerbin Outer Planets Mod Compatible with Blizzy's toolbar If you see weird spirals or other crazy lines everywhere, double-check you didn't enable "body-fixed mode" by mistake If the predicted trajectory seems inaccurate, check that you set the correct orientation in the Descent profile (or checked Prograde or Retrograde), and that you keep
  2. Download Here EVE is bundled, but be sure to check EVE page for updates as i will not be updating this mod often. Pics: (some may be outdated, will get updated as i get good screenies) Features: *Minimalistic design with focus on performance and full scatterer compatibility (not required to run mod, best to not use it when performance is an issue). *All planets but Gilly and Bop (geometric limitation) have atmospheric scatter or glow effects rendered via EVE cloud layers. Colors are generally hi
  3. How do I add custom static clouds in the sky without using eve? Like, clouds actually in the sky that you can fly through.
  4. KSP desperately needs larger (1.875 and 2.5 meter) jets, to bring down part and engine-count for players who build really large spaceplanes (since they take so long to get to orbit, the only way to do them, IMHO). I would like to request a modder build a simple mod with stock-alike 1.875 and 2.5 meter jet engines. The objective, eventually, would be to hopefully get SQUAD to work with that modder to make the engines Stock. So focusing on doing a really, really good job with just a few parts would be preferable.
  5. Hey there, To immediately get to the core of my post – I would like to share with you a handcrafted 13+ hours playlist with the finest, strangest, most epic and most remote tunes for endless Kerbal Space Program sessions (and other space adventures): https://open.spotify.com/playlist/2Tso1b4pgou9GFyJ6q4Lry I know that attitudes towards background music for playing KSP vary greatly. For me, atmospheric background music was always something to greatly increase my rocketry pleasure – especially on these very long deep space missions. However, I could not find a playlist anywhe
  6. Hi all, Does anyone know how KSP computes aerodynamic heating on vehicles in the atmosphere of a body? I've found some basic relationships on aerodynamic heating in this chart package (slides 17-19), but I'd like to find out what KSP does and uses. Does anyone have any insight? Thanks!
  7. I'm looking for a good atmosphere/clouds mod for a relatively low performance laptop. I just thought it would be nice to touch up the textures while being friendly to my i5. If there aren't any that work decently, then I guess I'll just save for a gaming pc.
  8. How much has the earth’s atmosphere shrunk since 1990?
  9. Hey all! It's been a long while. Maybe since v 1.0? Probably since asteroids were introduced. I used to play the ever living crap out of Kerbal and now it feels like I don't even know which end of the rocket I should point mostly up. It seems the atmosphere is holy crap unforgiving and I can't even make orbit which is insanely frustrating since I used to do it blind folded...well...not really... Did they make it so making a rocket is just as hard as making a space plane? What am I missing? Hoping some vets will know where I'm coming from and send some tips my way. I tried watching
  10. i need help i have been playing KSP with scatterer for awhile, but i installed EVE (haha pun) and SVE, to make it better, but it appears that i have glitched scatterer, and now the atmosphere of all planets + the ocean of all planets is a white mass. can't screenshot it right now because i'm not on my PC, but it looks like a low poly sphere when you reach space (i've done it after 7 attempts, because the sky was hurting my eyes.) Please help me solve this, as it seems many people are getting this error, even though there is no solution if you search it on Google. By the way

  12. I noticed in KSP 1.3 that parts using ModuleResourceHarvester type = 2 (atmospheric) no longer appear to harvest any resource if surface speed is exactly zero, such as if the craft is attached to a launch clamp or has wheel brakes engaged. If there's any motion, such as a heavy craft wobbling on its clamps, or with brakes engaged but can still be tilted side to side, then it'll harvest the resource. This seems to happen regardless of abundance. This differs from air intakes that can still take in a fixed amount of IntakeAir if perfectly stationary. I originally tuned my harvesters to matc
  13. Hey everyone, I recently have been sucked into this game, and I'm loving the math. My question is this simple, determine the altitude a rocket will achieve on full fuel burn of a single stage. I've done a lot of research and have come up with the following example problem to test my algorithm/process of calculation. Let me know what you guys think of below and what I'm missing or potentially a force I haven't considered into the calculation such as lift, as you'll see my answer is off by nearly 3,300m. (For the sake of simplicity the rocket travels straight up in a vertical dimension only.)
  14. Good evening to you all. Hopefully I have a simple question here. I have built an early tech plane, and, in order to make it long range I added a Terrier rocket engine to it so I could get it off the ground with all the extra fuel it's carrying for the Juno engines that are on it. I set the thrust limiter on the Terrier to 20, just enough to get the plane off the ground, and then I shut it down once I have enough speed to keep the plane in the air. My question is, does the oxidizer burn at the same rate no matter what you have the thrust set at? When I do activate the Terrier in flight it
  15. Once Galileo probe entered the atmosphere of Jupiter we made a lot of dicoveries and conclusions about Jupiter and all gas giants in solar system. But in ksp we can much more than in real life The idea is - you dive deeply into jool atmosphere as deep you can can and then return . For this task you beter use a plane/glider. Rules :Dont use cheats to prevent overheating nor cheats for infinite fue (just dont use cheats at all !) . Dont use mods except the the mods that add balloons . You need stay at the low altitide for 55 sec. That is your guide Easy: 70 000 m
  16. Hey guys, I am trying to get the atmosphere on Kerbin looking good but I am getting blocky clouds with sharp edges and bugger all atmosphere glow from orbit... I have EnvironmentalVisualEnhancements, Scatterer and TextureReplacer installed. I am wondering if there are settings that can be adjusted for these mods or is it possibly limitations of my Graphics card? I have a GTX 960 with 2GB ram on it (my system has 24gig ram). I am trying to attach a screen shot but I can't see a button anywhere to attach a pic (only a url link) Any help would be greatly appreciated
  17. It seems that the ksp atmosphere(stock) has some visual artifacts with the brightness and contrast. Which makes me curious about: How's it rendered? Is it intended to be physically accurate (in some degree), or just artificially constructed to look good? Also, I've heard that Tylo and Eeloo supposed to have very thin atmosphere, but it is discarded due to the rendering method of ksp being incapable of those rendering. Can I be given a short description of the cause of the incapability?
  18. I know clouds have been brought up a lot on this forum, but I think clouds are only half the story. Weather is often a determining factor in the success or failure of space missions or aircraft flights, be it on Earth, or at the destination. 1. Wind - Wind plays a big factor when taking off or landing with aircraft. High wind speeds and storms also cause hazard for re-entering spacecraft, and for spacecraft wishing to launch. 2. Clouds - Clouds add a layer of uncertainty to approaches, as it is more difficult to judge where your spacecraft will touch down, (especially on a plane
  19. How to get atmosphere and tempterature curve values without writing them? Or a generator maybe?
  20. Hi there, I've accepted a contract asking me to enter the atmosphere of Jool. I decided to send a very simple probe in a deadly trip to the Green Planet. (Periapsis 4 km...) I was thinking that "Enter the atmosphere of Jool to achieve this goal" was pretty clear. But my probe exploded a few hundred meters below the surface of Jool, and the contract is still there... https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B1cJn_NG58YYSGRSdm1KQXpDSDQ&usp=sharing Do you think I need wings to achieve this contract, or is this just a bug? Thanks for reading
  21. I have a very small pod (about 1 ton) in an elliptical orbit around Kerbin. The Pe is around 68km, the Ap around 330km. I am mostly watching the thing orbit in realtime. When I am not timewarping, both the Ap and the Pe fall. (In 1.0, it used to be true that when the Ap fell, the Pe would rise, and vise versa.) The funny thing is that it's acting like a drag that's decreasing with altitude. Like the 70km atmosphere cutoff no longer applies. Is anyone else seeing something like this?
  22. Is there any add-on which shows the trajectory of the ship and where will it land after experiencing drag in the atmosphere? Whenever I try to land at KSC or any other piece of flat land, I find it difficult to land on the exact position I had chosen, due to decay of the orbit. So, is there any mod which shows me where I will exactly land after experiencing drag in the atmosphere? Thank you.
  23. Hellooow everyone ! Today I come up with a weird question : Okay, so I wish to start exploring other planets in the game now, but I like to do things properly and well, because the most amazing part of the gameto me is when excrements works and you succeed in actually going somewhere. My first target will obviously be Duna and I have this program idea, that's kind of inspired by the Mars Semi-direct Mission, with a hab module, a Duna Ascent Vehicle and a Kerbin Return Vehicle. Now I know Duna has a different atmosphere and gravity pull than Kerbin... So how do I test properly
  24. As the title says: we have listed values for vacuum and ASL thrust, but how is the Isp/thrust interpolated from there (or extrapolated for higher atmospheric pressures)?
  25. So, I am making a planet pack with Kopernicus for KSP. And I have a problem. I want to create a brown dwarf, using Jool as template. I want to create an atmosphere for it (so you can't land on it), but I don't understand those complicated numbers: key = 137500 100.8216733 -2.71949803636364E-03 -2.71949803636364E-03 key = 151250 68.1071 -2.13953963636364E-03 -2.13953963636364E-03 key = 165000 41.98433333 -1.65774109090909E-03 -1.65774109090909E-03 key = 178750 22.51922 -1.00126501090909E-03 -1.00126501090909E-03
