  1. Forgotten Space Program

    Forgotten Space Program Latest Post: 2017-10-19 - Out In The Cold -- 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. -- 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, ...

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 v1.3.1) 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.

(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
  2. Trekking through Alternis

    Background After reading the great feedback about the Alternis Kerbol mod and working within the vanilla/OPM solar system for a few years I was excited to try the new solar system out. I am still working in KSP 1.2.1 because it takes a long time in RL to get anything done. I was not sure if the latest download of the mod would incorporate into the old version of the game. After making a copy of the KSP 1.2.1 folder I copied in mod files and tried to start the game up. It did start ok, upon inspection Duna is missing completely. I’m unsure whether I’ll be able to copy it in from another version but for now I thought might be interesting to take the Kerbals from my previous save who were just launching their first Kerballed Duna mission after working towards it for 7 years (career mode) and ‘start again’ in the new system. Once I get the story going I’ll post in Mission Reports. Chapter List Chapter 1: Discovery Chapter 2: Starting Over Chapter 3: Communications & Scanning and reaching for Bop Chapter 4: Unexpected landing Chapter 5: Kerbals back into Space Chapter 6: Contract Stacking Chapter 1: Discovery After 7 years the Kerbal’s in the Trekking Career Mode save launched their Duna Transfer Vessel “Percival Lowell”. In the prior years, the KSC with the assistance from long time supporter DDRocketsInc had used robotic spacecraft to investigate much of the Kerbol system all the way out to Sarnus. They had orbital science stations circling Kerbin, the Mun and Minmus, and since they completed development of all rocket parts on the technical tree several years ago, the science that the orbital laboratories provided was turned quickly into funds by the administration team. There were probes and communication relays deep in the inner system, in orbit around beautiful green Jool and even one in hibernation on it’s way to Plock. So, when Jebediah the director of the space programme and veteran of 15 kerballed flights, 7 more than any other Kerbal called them all back to headquarters to announce the crew for the first Kerballed Duna mission there was much excitement. The senior science team T’Pal, Janeway and Hadfield Kerman wanted to get to the ‘red planet’ to see how different it was to the Mun but, looked at each other suspiciously – it had become clear in the latest communications that due to the length of the trek, Fregard Kerman the director of the Science Division wanted to send some younger scientists like Pheomma or Valphe Kerman. Everyone in the auditorium could tell that the engineering team saw this get together as a significant distraction to their ‘real work’. Comments from SRide Kerman such as “it’s all easy for you scientists waiting for the DTV to arrive to start work, where the ones who have to make sure it makes it all the way there” echoed from yesterday as the engineers spent more time looking at their computer screens than the presentation “First Footsteps on Duna” that Jeb was scrolling through. As usual the Pilots looked “Uber relaxed”, senior pilots Paris and Legerchel Kerman who had been working in the simulator with the back up team pilots, Riker and MReynolds Kerman idly thumbed their data screens looking at the results from yesterday. Everything changed when Jeb was about 20 minutes in. There was a blinding flash of light. Everything not tied down, including all of the Kerbals lifted off the ground, hung suspended as it by wires for a full minute and then fell, crumpled to the ground. Then a split second later the Kerbals felt gravity slam them into the ground. It felt as through Kerbin itself had moved orbit……… “What the?” Paris looked at Mayweather, finally not moving along the ground. “Is everyone ok?” asked Janeway as she moved from one of her team mates to another. “You’re not going to believe this!” called Hadfield to anyone within ear shot as he opened the door to the auditorium and looked outside, “what the hell is that?”. As more Kerbals met at the doorway they looked up on an unfamiliar sky. It looked as through Kerbin had moved in it’s orbit. Above them was a grey/orange gas giant. Kerbol, their mighty star reflected dimly off it’s delicate hues. “Quickly, science team please get to the Tracking Station we need to find out what is happening” Jeb called. The Kerbals bolted to the Tracking Station. Looking at the large display they could not believe what they could see. Kerbin, their beloved planet was now an unrecognisable moon of this blue gas giant. The computers in TS still tracked is as “Jool”. Beyond almost every Mun and planet in the Kerbol solar system had been shifted, and Duna had completely disappeared. The computers were tracking no orbital science laboratories, no probes, no communication relays, nothing. The “Percival Lowell” and her flotilla of robotic support landers were nowhere to be seen.
  3. Panarchist Space Alliance

    This is inspired by a lot of Kerbal Mission Reports, and I've been wanting to create my own content for a while, but the real instigation was Angel-125's Heisenberg mod and his mission report. Then I found Plan Kappa, and I knew for sure that I wanted to do some sort of Mission Report / fictionalization of my main game save. Mod List Overview I wasn't a big fan of the existing nation maps of Kerbin, so I made my own. I've been using Kerbal Konstructs for some time, so this version of Kerbin contains Kerbinside, Kosmodrome, the BAD-T airfields, and possibly additional bits and pieces. The basic history is analogous to ours, sort-of. The Kerman Empire 2,000 years ago built roads all over the place, setting up the preconditions for truly world-wide trade. There was an equivalent to the Hanseatic League, and there was a Great War, which is sort of a combined WWI/WWII without the genocide. The sudden appearance of the monoliths brought everyone to the table to resolve their differences at least temporarily, and now there is an uneasy truce and a joint effort to explore the source of the monoliths. The general public isn't aware of the monoliths (yet). PSA - The Panarchist Space Alliance The PSA was formed at the end of the Great War to investigate the origin of the monoliths. Kerbin Kerbin at the time of this story has 22 nations - 5 major powers and 17 minor ones. Most of the national flags are from @UAL002 's awesome flag pack, but a few are my own design or adapted from materials online which are CC BY-NC licensed. (see comment below for details) The Major Powers Kermania: Kermania is an analog to Earth's Germany. Originally a loose federation of barbarian tribes in the days of the Kerman Empire, they overran and defeated that power before collapsing back into a dark age of anarky. Later, under Konstantine Kerman, the tribes consolidated into several warring nation states until Kaiser Vilhelm Kerman united them into the nation of Kermania. Kermania was a major player in the Great War - part of the Triaxial League: Kermania, Imperial Kermanovia, and Yitalia. Kermania started the war with the invasion of Polan in year -5. (Year 1939 in the old calendar) After the Great War, Kermanian scientists were instrumental in advancing rocket science to the point where manned space travel was possible. Kermanian rocket technology was pioneered during the war, and at the war's conclusion, on Year One, Day Three, Kermania launched the first orbital satellite - the first peaceful use of rocket technology, using a booster intended to launch a new weapon against the USK. South Kijani: The nation of South Kijani was originally neutral in the Great War, until Kermania invaded their territory to launch an offensive against the USK. South Kijani then sided with the USK to drive back Kermania and take the pressure off their occupation of Keltica. Union of Kerbalized Kommunist Republiks (UKKR): Formerly the Kingdom of the Kermanovs, Imperial Kermanovia became a member of the Triaxial League during the Great War and led the offensive against United Kerbdom until Kermanovian workers rose in revolt against their imperialist masters during the Red Oktober uprising. The new Kommunist state immediately sued for peace with the UK and signed a non-aggression pact which made them neutral for the remainder of the Great War. After the war, the UKKR established Area 110011, the preeminent test flight facility on Kerbin, and the KKVLA, a new radio telescope to detect signals from space. United States of Kerbin (USK): The USK was one of the Allied Powers in the Great War, and led the bulk of the fighting against Kermanian expansion. United Kerbdom (UK): United Kerbdom, in a flip of "real world" history, was originally a colony of the USK Which declared independence and established a constitutional monarchy. The Minor Powers Arabnia: The Kingdom of Arabnia has been ruled by the Al Kaud family for generations, and has been home to desert nomads and kamel farmers for far longer than that. The Kingdom appeared destined to remain a minor power until the discovery of Liquid Fuel. Exploration revealed that Arabnia contains Kerbin's largest reserves of Liquid Fuel, and the Kingdom has successfully leveraged that fact to earn a place at the table. Cratery Coast: (more detail to come) DPRK: The Demokratic People's Republik of Kerbin is a misnomer, as it is neither demokratic nor a republik. It is instead a military diktatorship established during the Kaoist Skism of 115 (Old Rekoning). The DPRK has no launch facilities of its own, but contracts with Republiko Simios for use of the facilities of Sanctuary Mouth. The Simios government has largely stepped back from the use of that facility, happy to keep the cash flowing. Goreyo: Goreyan culture is one of the oldest civilizations on Kerbin, and perhaps the least changed from its origins during the Big Split - the initial divergence of Kerbalkind from their pre-historic origins. Erryday: Erryday is known for their world-famous bobsledding team, their world-famous koffee, and their world-famous relaxed attitude. Indeed, it's amazing they ever get anything done. The nation is an island paradise, and their citizens work only an hour each day. (or as the residents say, erryday) Erryday's space program started the same way their bobsled team did - someone cracked a joke and said they'd never have one, so they went out and started one. Erryday contracts with New Batavia and the Cratery Coast to use their launch facilities at The Shelf and Hanbert Cape, respectively. Finnlund: Finnlund maintains the largest commercial fishing fleet on Kerbin. (more detail to come) Free Republik of Kerbin: The Free Republik of Kerbin split off from the USK many years ago, after the UK successfully broke away. Some of the early rebels wanted to call the new nation "Kexas", but were shouted down by those who thought there were already too many kountries with a "k" in their name. The Free Republik is a large island, and prides itself on the best beef in all of Kerbin, and was also the heart of the USK's Liquid Fuel industry before breaking away. Since becoming independent, that industry collapsed due to over-mining, and now the primary economy is beef, leather, outdoor equipment and enormous belt buckles. The Free Republik managed to stay out of the Great War, but because they wanted to - not because they were cowards. (and if you imply they are, they will give you "what for") Since the war, the FRoK keeps saying they're going to launch people into space, and that they have a great plan - the best plan ever, the highest rated plan anyone's ever seen. Rumor has it they have built a Top Secret facility in the island's interior. Hellenik Republik: The Hellenik Republik is the kradle of demokracy and the birthplace of Kerbal philosophy and science. Sokrates Kerman, Arkhimedes Kerman (before he moved to Syrakuse), Pythakoreus, Aristokle... the list goes on and on. The Republik wasn't always a republik, however - in years past it's been a kingdom, a military diktatorship, an oligarchy, matriarchy, patriarchy, a true democracy, and a libertarian dys/utopia (depending on who you ask). Every type of government has been tried, because the Helleniks are nothing if not experimental and ready to try anything. Most of the time, however, they have been a republic, though many think they are an autonomous collective. During the Great War, the Hellenik army successfully held off several Kermanian advances, and ultimately caused enough casualties that the Kermanic offensive found an easier target: South Kijani. The deciding battle was fought by 300 Kerbals under Leonidas Kerman in the battle of Kermopylae. Leonidas and his brave Kerbals all died, but the Kermanic advance was halted and several thousand Kermanians perished. The Helleniks have a small facility at Sea's End, on the inland sea. The facility is known more for its research than any real attempt at getting into space. Kanada: Kanada is another former colony of the USK, but one which was intended to be independent from the start. It was a place for every Kerbal who found the USK to be far too warm. Kanada is sometimes called the land of milk and honey, due to all the goats and the bees there. Kanada is also Kerbin's largest supplier of waffle syrup. Prior to the Great War, Kanada lost its southern province when Imperial Kermanovia expanded northward. Since the Revolution, Kanada has opened talks several times with the UKKR to get the regions around Boostershire Farms and Dundard's Edge back, but the UKKR has so far refused to hand back the land they took. Kanada has a small space program, but one of the best astronaut training centers on Kerbin - the Polar Research Center on the northern ice cap. Kanada is currently training the next crop of Kerbonauts for a mission to Duna. Celtika (or is it Keltica?): New Batavia: (more detail to come) Polan: (more detail to come) Republika de Santa Kruz: (more detail to come) Republiko Simios: (more detail to come) Skaibern Empire: The home in exile of the Kermanovs after being forced out of Kermanovia by the Oktober Revolutionaries. (more detail to come) Skotslund: Skotslund is Kerbin's airship capital, and home to all things considered strange on Kerbin - hakkis, kiltz, bagkipes, and golf. It's also home to ridiculous amounts of lifting gas, which not only got Skotslund's airship program literally off the ground, but provides hours or fun at parties when people breathe lifting gas and talk in high-pitched voices until they pass out. Yitalia: The home and birthplace of pasta, and the world's greatest shoes. Yitalians also originated lawn bowling. Yitalia was a member of the Triaxial alliance during the Great War, but when they learned that Kermania was planning to launch rockets against the USK, they defected from the alliance and claimed the Kwiss alps region of Kermania, moving troops up to capture the Messerkerman factory there. After the war, Timekeeping on Kerbin: 1 "Astronomical Unit" (AU) on Kerbin is 13,599,840,256 m (45.4 LS) Kerbin sits in a circular orbit with a 23.5° inclination respective to the ecliptic, which means Kerbin has seasons similar to those on Earth. It has a 600km radius, which is 1/10 that of Earth. Year 1, Day 1 coincidentally is the first day of Spring in the northern hemisphere. (thanks to the mod "Harder Solar System" for the inclined orbit!) Sidereal Orbital Period: 9,203,545 s (426d 0h 32m 24.6s) Sidereal Rotation Period: 21,549.425 s (5h 59m 5.9s) Solar Day: 21,600 s (1d / 6h) Kerbin Year: 9,203,545 s (426d 0h 32m 24.6s) Kerbin has a "Leap" year every 12 years unless that year is divisible by 180 - but every 900 years *is* a leap year, and every 21,600 years is NOT. 1 year - 14 months of 30 days each, plus "Holiday", a 6 day intercalary month. (7 days on leap years) 1 light year (Kerbol LY) = 2,759,153,377,863.61 km 1 light year (Earth LY) = 9,460,730,472,580.8 km (3.43 Kerbol LY) Year 1, Day 1 is actually 1950.12.27 under the previous calendar, which dates back to the founding of the Kermanian Empire. It's been nearly 4,200 years since the beginning of recorded Kerbal history. Days: (5 weeks of 6 days each per month) Sunday | Munday | Dunaday | Joolday | Evesday | Sarnusday
  4. hello all. so, before we even get started: this is a modded install I have checked all the mods to ensure current versions and compatablilty I have unmodded I have done a reinstall I have done a deep clean reinstall this viersion is not from steam, but direct from the developers webpage I have done a 50/50 mod check method and I have the log file I am NOT downloading some program to imbed the file into the message, so deal with it. BEGIN LOG FILE: [snip] now, my issue. the game crashes at the end of the loading screen. refer to the bullets above BEFORE giving me advice that I have already done. thank you. now, if anyone can, can you help me figure out this latest headache concerning this program?
  5. Sup, I've just got my new computer and tried to start KSP after redownloading all of my mods via CKAN. I have KSP through steam and when I try to launch it (64 bit) it spends about 5 minutes loading then crashes. I've read through the logs to try to pinpoint which mod(s) were causing the issue and (this is embarrassing for me as a software engineer...) I can't make sense of them for the life of me. One thing I'm fairly confident on is that it's not a memory issue. I've got 16GB of it running on the 64-bit version of the game so it really shouldn't be an issue. I also noticed that it always seems to crash as the game is trying to load the HG-5 High Gain antenna from the Squad folder but i don't know if that's at all relevant. Output log:

  11. EDIT The comment below by TaggedYa provides a fix for this issue, so if you are having a problem, follow their instructions. Hope this helps anyone who has this issue. Original post below I recently decided to have another go at trying RP-0, and downloaded a fresh install of KSP 1.2.2 from Steam. I then used CKAN to install, first, Realism Overhaul and its dependencies and recommended mods. After which, I installed RP-0, and its dependencies and recommended mods. Once all installed, I tried launching from CKAN, and the game immediately crashed. The crash log is contained within the following link I then tried the same with the 32 bit exe. Instead of it crashing immediately, it instead crashed when it ran out of memory (I tracked how much RAM it used with Task Manager, it crashes when it reaches about 3.3-3.5GB) There appear to be no other solutions that I can find for this error, and was wondering if anyone else has been experiencing this error, and if there were any fixes. The mod list as exported by CKAN These are the most up to date versions of the mod CKAN allows for 1.2.2 DxDiag - I have seen this be requested a few times in relation to similar crashes from other games, so will provide it. Thank you for any help.
  12. The BD Armory section is there when I'm in a hangar and I can see multiple guns, rockets, bombs, and ammo, but no weapons manager. When I tried to use a gun, it didn't fire, even with ammo boxes. I used CKAN to install the mod.
  13. I got on KSP today and noticed that KSP crashes on startup, specifically on loading Squad's Rover Wheel Assets. This has never happened before, and I don't know what to do. My Mods If you need more info, please let me know, I am eager to get this problem solved so I can work on my YouTube Videos!
  14. Repack Request

    Hello, I am having issues with some mods that shouldn't conflict with each other and yet some mods are not working properly. I have tried countless times to assemble a certain number of mods together and in one case it did work but ksp updated and now it's not working again. I understand that reproducing some mod content requires special permission from the mod creator, and I cant ask for a download, possibly an email would not violate their terms. I have the mod list below. If anyone can help thanks, BTW I just want a single gamedata folder.

  16. Greetings. I've encountered a peculiar bug which appears rather consistently when certain conditions are met: 1. A vessel must be in orbit 2. It must have a manned EAS-1 command seat When I load a save file created in flight under these conditions, some of the vessel's parts are misaligned. Usually it's the wheels, the landing gear, the command seat or the kerbal manning it. I'm using a number of mods: KIS, KAS, KER, Kerbal Joint Reinforcement, Throttle Controlled Avionics, RCS Build Aid, Atomic Age, QuizTechAero, a bunch of other part packs. But the first time I encountered this bug I was flying a spaceplane only made of stock parts. Vessel mass matters a lot for a spaceplane, especially if you only have panther engines. So a command seat stowed into a 1,25m service bay seemed the best solution for a rescue mission. Naturally I saved the game when the stranded kerbal got aboard. Can't remember what made me load it, but when I was about to land at Kerbin I noticed that the fore gear is skewed about 30 degrees aside. A similar thing happened to a flying rover when I decided to take an engineer along for an orbital mission - the wheels got all screwed up. Both the spaceplane and the rover are included in the following footage. The bug conditions are simulated 2 times for each vessel. If anyone has an idea what might have caused this, please tell. UPD: The parts get back to normal after going to space center and then back to the vessel. Which makes this bug a lot less critical
  17. A WW2 German style submarine

    After finishing the mig, I quit playing kerbal for a few weeks until I came back and made this submarine. Not based on any specific model, not a replica of any kind, just a working submarine made to look a little like a german one. I had some serious trouble with getting my computer to actually render the thing, I don't know why but it seems my pc is dying, half the time it's at 100% disk usage, no viruses or malware, and none of the tutorials online help me out with anything, but anyway, here's the ship. Using no propellor mods because they're too easy in my opinion, I made the motor of the submarine with infernal robotics and some control surfaces. This actually ran me into some problems when piloting the sub. Each rotor is set at a speed of 10 with acceleration of 2 and spins in an opposite direction to the other in order to not have the thing spinning like crazy underwater. To get the sub moving I set the speed in the RPM GUI ingame to 5, making the rotors spin at a speed of 50, any higher and the control surfaces break off. When resurfacing I have to turn off the rotors lest they break on surface, I found that going up at 10 degrees and cutting the rotors at a depth of 100 meters usually curbs the issue. At the surface I usually run it at a speed of 30. This makes it so the rotors don't break off and I can move at a steady rate over the water. Have some pictures with scatterer for looks! I get the sub into the water using vessel mover which is why I have the struts on the side to keep it up on the launchpad. I cannot film this or even open anything up anymore because my pc is not letting me. I havent the slightest clue why it's doing this but every time I try to play anything or do anything it just doesnt work or loads so slow it might as well not have worked. I'm going to try reinstalling windows but after that I won't have any of these builds and I'm thinking I'm just going to quit playing this game. I can't take this any longer.
  18. So I've installed a fresh version of KSP 1.2.2, ran it in x64 with no mods, and copied the content's of the ZIP archive from Galileo's Planet Pack 1.2.3 (GameData > GPP/Kopernicus/MFI/MM 2.7.6) to my KSP GameData folder and then loaded up KSP x64. The game then loads to the main menu, yet Kerbin is still showing in the background, along with when I try to start a new game (brand new) it just sits at the loading screen with the rotating planets in the bottom right. A few things I've also noticed: Whenever I've launched the game, and it get's stuck at the "Infinite Loading Screen" after the main menu, I then close the game, and I then verify the game file integrity and it always shows that 1 file failed to verify, and proceeds to re-install it. I have also removed the GPP specific folder and replaced it with just OPM and that loaded the game to the KSC just fine. Thanks for any help/tips. Output Log: Image: Directory/GameData

  21. W.T.F. SSTO (KSP 1.2)

    I designed an SSTO that uses an Orion engine which can easily land on any planet or moon in the game. It has a docking port and RCS thrusters which enable it to dock with space stations. I edited the .cfg file for the inflatable heat shield to make it able to deflate, so that the what SSTO can even land on & return from EVE. It has an ore tank and an ISRU that has been modified to also create fuel for the Orion engine. I use Ubio Welding to prevent my FPS from dropping (Great mod fyi), so make sure to copy that file if you want the craft to work. By the way, I know that using the Orion engine kind of defeats the purpose of an SSTO, but it's still fun. Below is a link to my KSP Google Drive that has the SSTO file, screenshots, and my entire game data file. If you like it, check out my youtube channel because I am getting into making KSP videos. I will post a video from my channel at the bottom of the page. Google Drive link: Pictures: As I mentioned earlier, here is one of my youtube videos:
  22. I'm wondering what your GameData folder looks like. For those without mods, all there will be is a "squad" folder. I'm curious about how many mods you guys use. Here's mine: EDIT: does this go in the modded discussion, or is it good here?
  23. USS Enterprise [B9, HX PARTS]

    I wanted to make a constitution class replica, specifically the USS enterprise at a smaller scale (my replica I estimate to be slightly bigger than the NX class). Tweak scale wasn't working properly, so I had to use HX parts. This ship has a lot of deltaV (45,000 m/s), mostly thanks to it engines its using (Karborundum Fusion Drive engines.) It clocks in at over 300 parts, this shouldn't be enough turn your game into a slideshow. Yes this can carry shuttles (although they look nothing like the ones seen on star trek.) This ship does feature laser weaponry, and torpedo launchers. As well as a fair amount of science equipment. Main issue is that alot of the DeltaV is useless considering that when I use the fusion drive engines, the ship flips (not much I can do.) Not to mention, its pretty much impossible to take off from the surface. Hell even modifying this with anti gravity pads don't seem to help(see the spoiler below.) Not to mention this is incredibly expensive (good luck getting the funds for this in career mode.) This replica is a still work in progress, the last thing needed is an actual warp drive, right now there is no FTL/warp drive mod that can move or support a ship this damn large. I also have no idea how to modify any existing mod (eg the alcubierre drive mod) to support a ship this large (like increasing the bubble size to fit this ship.) Yes this thing can survive re-entry (at stock default) The engines below the saucer section are their to keep the ship stable, and look aesthetically more appealing (in my opinion.)
  24. Mono.dll Crash

    So I have some mods installed but not many. I think I've narrowed the crash on startup to the Module Manager mod but I can't seem to find a work around for it. The game loads for a while until it tries to load the Module Manager and then crashes, giving me a line in the error report saying that the error was caused by mono.dll. Here is a list of installed mods. - BDArmory -Firespitter -KAX -Module Manager -Tweak Scale Here is a link to the crash report. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
  25. Hello guys, I'm a new user to the fourm. I've been playing KSP for quite awhile on Windows, and it works great, but when I try to run on Ubuntu with limited Mods, the game crashes half-way through loading. I will post my KSP.log below. [snip]
