  1. I have 7085 science hanging around in low Gilly orbit. Should I just transmit it all back to kerbin, or should I send a crewed mission to Gilly so that I could use the science lab and extract, like what, 36000 science????? I have a couple of mods, so my tech tree is a bit bigger... Also, the Science Lab is too overpowered!! EDIT: I am playing a science save, 200% science returns.
  2. Hi there. I feel like a little bit of a community outsider, as I was new to the game at the end of last year, but over the last month I've been trying to update some of the Wiki's most lacking pages, hear and there. After seeing an edit to the Mobile Processing Lab page (by @EsterbanLB), I realised how wrong/outdated much of the info there was, so set about rewriting or adding it. I'd appreciate any suggestions of major things I've overlooked, or mistaken. One part I made from scratch is the engineer level research rates table (as shown below). I just made careful observations, so I'm a lit
  3. Hi all, can someone enlighten me as to how the lab (once full of data) then empties that data to allow me to input more? My current lab has 743.943 out of 750 data stored and it's being processed at 5.0216sci / day. I'm not seeing that 743 figure go down so I can add more. Is there something I'm missing? Cheers.............MadJock
  4. Greetings Kerbals! Guys, I have a Mobile Processing Lab MPL-LG-2. It is orbiting Mun with two level 2 scientists inside. There is also a Pod attached to it with a level 2 pilot. When I right click the lab, I get the "Level up crew" button. If I click on it, I get the message: "No astronauts onboard are ready to gain experience." Any ideas on how to use this option? My intention is to have an alternative way to level up my astronauts (all of them, not only scientists), instead of traveling with them around to gain experience. Thanks a lot and fly safe!
  5. I'm confused on how the MPL works. according to the information i've been able to find(sparse at best..) i should be able to set one of these up on kerbin somewhere and get science from my experiment data. but when, for example, i do a crew report from the tundra, even though the data is worth 5 Mits in the experiment, i get 0 data in the lab for it. it's a brand new lab, never done any experiments before. i am playing version 1.1.3 x64, pretty heavily modded, in science mode, but i don't believe any of my mods change the behavior of the MPL. not on purpose anyways. am i doing something wrong?
  6. Over the past few weeks I have seen a few people asking how to use the Mobile Processing Lab. Here is a tutorial I put together that I hope will help make it clearer.
  7. I have a question for all the players who have put a Mobile Processing Lab in LKO to grind out science points from Kerbin data. Anyone who has actually done this probably knows that there is a trick involved. You have to get the science experiments from the ground into the MPL. Method 1 involves either launching the MPL with an SSTO, or launching the experimental data up to an MPL (in orbit) with an SSTO. Either of these makes it easy. But if you have the tech for an SSTO, then what the heck are you doing just launching your first MPL? So I think we can rule Method 1 out. Method
  8. A lab with about 100 data, and two two-star scientists nets me about 2.2 science per day before it starts to decay. Out of curiosity, does anyone know the math: A lab completely filled, 500 data and two five-star scientists, how much science output will it have per day? I'm extra curious to know what happens with a modded lab that comes with one of my parts packs. (Tarus HCV 3.75M lab) It holds 750 data and 3 scientists but runs on exactly the same code. Max output from that?
  9. I want to propose a new mechanic in Stock to encourage the use of the part called "Mobile Processing Lab MPL-LG-2". Instead of supplying a slow but infinite source of science points, I suggest one based on the current science gathering mechanic. Simplified version: Every SOI has a set amount of science points attainable by the MPL(doesn't matter whether you gathered every experiment or not). For arguments sake, let's say 500sci. Send a MPL into Kerbin orbit, put a scientist and lots of solar panels on it. Click the "start research" button, then after some time and lots of EC the
