  1. I'm trying to make an interplanetary tourist ship, which means I need to get fuel efficiency down. I decided to go with the nuclear engines, but I read somewhere that they tend to overheat. What parts can I use to prevent that? I installed engine pre-coolers on the engines themselves (which are powered by fuel tanks you'll find on planes), but I don't think that'll be enough once I escape the atmosphere. How useful are they? Recommended radiators?
  2. I would like to build lightweight mining ships. The problem is that I can't ever seem to get the miniature refinery to work. The normal one seems to operate just fine. I only need to use 4 small rotating radiators and the refinery will always operate at optimal temperature. If I use the same radiators for the small one, it always overheats and eventually shuts down. Even 4 medium rot-radiatiors don't seem to help it maintain optimal temperature and it overheats and shuts down. How the hell do people use the mini refineries without any trouble?? I like building heavy but I sometimes want to build light too... and I can't do this for a miner ship. **Edit** I wasn't talking about the baby drills. I was talking about the small ore processor. I know how the baby drills work. They only work with a certain threshold of ore underneath. I already knew this. I mean the processor overheats...
  3. I'm buidling a deep space probe to Saturn and Jupiter, but the core overheats (on Earth and space) after a few minutes in flight.I'm using an RTG to power it and some radiators to cool it down,but they don't seem to be powerful enough or even to work.I noticed that I produce way too much electricty than I actually need and maybe this is the cause of the overheat. This is the message I get and a picture of the probe for comparsion: So yeah , any solutions?Maybe less power?I really have no idea.
  4. It happened to Scott Manly and it happened to me a lot: The mk1 and mk2 cockpits burn up during reentry. Nothing seems to help. Maybe you can help by analyzing Scotts accident. It happened at 7:20
  5. I have a convert-o-tron 250 that is overheating even though the drills are turned off and TCSs are not at 100% cooling. https://www.dropbox.com/s/wtgc2z1f2mf2hgf/Screen Shot 2016-12-24 at 7.18.03 PM.png?dl=0 The ISRU works fine when only two converters are working, but starts overheating when the third is turned on. I have 6 x MKS Ranger TCS and 5 x large TCS at various places in the base. The base also has a PDU with the nuclear reactor running. Am I misinterpreting what "cooling" on the TCS means? Also, how do I interpret the thermal debug data shown in the action menu to make better sense of what I can do to stop it from overheating? Thanks
  6. Does anyone know an easy way to make a rocket overheat? I need it to for a YouTube cinema type video I'm making.
  7. So, I have a very strange problem. It seems that whatever engine I use, in whatever situation, and whatever level of thrust, overheats over time. The heat goes away if I switch to a different craft and then back to that craft. But this happens with any of my engines. My jets can go for about 7 minutes of full throttle, and then they explode. Less time with rockets. If i throttle down, the heat builds more slowly, but it never goes away. It's not reentry heat, I already checked that, it even happens in space. Im not sure if I'm doing something wrong, or if there's some glitch in my game. I'm running deadly reentry mod, but like i said, this even happens in space, so it can't be FAR either. Any ideas????
