  1. (Before part 14, this mission report was titled "Hill Space Program") So, I decided to start a new science save. I'm playing mostly stock, with mechjeb and KAC. Well, enough of that stuff. Time for the mission report. And that's all for today.
  2. Nehemiah Engineering Orbital Science Development Thread This is Micha's development thread for the Nehemiah Engineering Orbital Science mod collection originally by @N3h3mia. This thread will continue until such a time as Nehemiah is able to resume work on his mods. Please use this thread to discuss ongoing development, raising bugs, and testing pre-releases. The release thread is probably better to discuss the current stable release and general gameplay questions. I hugely appreciate people testing these builds and posting any bugs, feature requests, balance suggestions, or contributions in this thread. The pre-release builds are only available via Github. Releases on GitHub (KSP1.4) Link to last KSP1.2.x Version Resources @N3h3mia's Original Thread - contains original mod information, video tutorials, and more. Micha's Release Thread - contains current release information (duplicated here) Source Code on GitHub Version History From 0.7b3 onwards, only major changes are listed here. For a more detailed set of changes, please see the Changelog on Github.
  3. I've been given @N3h3mia's blessings to officially support his excellent collection of Science Mods for KSP 1.x as he is currently unable to find the time to continue these. Please raise bug reports for this build to myself and not to N3h3mia. [ ] Official Thread (out-of-date)- overview and tutorial videos Micha's Development Thread- continued revision history, source code, bug reports, feature requests, help and support, ... NOTICE: This mod includes version checking using MiniAVC. If you opt-in, it will use the internet to check whether there is a new version available. Data is only read from the internet and no personal information is sent. For a more comprehensive version checking experience, please download the KSP-AVC Plugin. Download links Updated to 0.7.2 on 2018.06.10 NOTE: If upgrading from earlier than 0.7.1, there is a slightly changed file format.

GitHub SpaceDock CurseForge On CKAN as "Nehemiah Engineering Orbital Science" Changes from 0.7.1 (Full Changelog) Recompiled for KSP 1.4.3 Added Kerbal Alarm Clock support - an alarm is automatically created when a new experiment is started. Known Issues Reporting new issues If running with mods, try to reproduce the issue without any mods. Please supply steps on how to reproduce the issue. Attach your log file (KSP.log, found in the KSP game directory) and optionally a save-game which can be used to reproduce the issue. Ideally raise the bug report on the GitHub tracker. Kemini Experiments cannot be "reset" Due to the custom way these experiments work, the experiments cannot be reset during the "Review Data" screen. Doing so will correctly discard the data, but it is not possible to re-run the experiment. General Incompatible with the Crowd Sourced Science mod. Fixed in CSS v4.1.2 There are reports of KEES experiments not running correctly or being able to be finalized (further testing underway). Overview This set of mods consists of 3 main components: Kemini Research Program (KRP) - early-game orbital science experiments for the Mk1 command pod. requires ModuleManager compatible with a range of third-party command pods. Kerbal Environment Effects Study (KEES) - mid-game orbital science experiments for your first orbital stations. requires KIS recommends K2 / Corvus or similar 2-Kerbal pods Orbital Station Science (OSS) (Was: OMS/KLS) - end-game experiments for large long-duration stations, requiring heavy lifters and significant station infrastructure. The basic premise is that experiments are run in "Labs". Labs, Lab Equipment, and Experiments are launched separately. Equipment must be installed into the correct lab, and Experiments can only be run on certain Equipment. KRP and KEES are simpler variants with some/all of the equipment/labs pre-integrated. Once an Experiment has been installed, it can be "Run", which will take some time. The idea is not to time-warp to completion, but to run the experiments in the background while performing other missions. When done, an Experiment can be "Finalized" and must then be returned to Kerbin. Quick Tutorials NB: From v0.7 onwards, this set of mods also has in-game KSPedia entries showing basic usage.

  4. SEP v2.6 This is a continuation of the mod originally created by @AlbertKermin, and now co-authored by him, myself, and @DMagic. I'm merely starting a new thread so that I (as a more active user) can maintain the thread as needed. SEP now runs on a custom science plugin, allowing much more complex science over time. (See the next post for more images!) Changelog: Mod Support: This mod has custom science definitions for CaptRobau's wonderful Outer Planets Mod. This mod has custom science definitions for KillAshley's New Horizons Pack. @Nils277 has made a Central Station wedge for use with his Kerbal Planetary Base Systems mod. Run a SEP off your ground base! RemoteTech compatible (requires Module Manager) AntennaRange compatible (requires Module Manager) Dependencies: KospY + IgorZ's wonderful Kerbal Inventory System/Kerbal Attachment System. Credits: AlbertKermin, for creating the original MSEP mod, helping create the original SEP mod, and contributing sciencedefs for the current iteration. CobaltWolf, for creating the new models and parts used in the mod. DMagic for creating the new plugin on which the science system runs. KospY, for the Kerbal Attachment System mod without which my mod could not exist. Vaga, who created the RemoteTech compatibility patch. Kerbas_ad_astra, who created the AntennaRange patch. Beale, whose solar panel texture we used (with permission). Enceos, for his amazing help with converting the original mod to use KIS. JefferyCor, for advice on repairing one of this mod's more troublesome bugs. Dunrana for helping write the Science definitions, testing, and generally getting me back to work on the mod. Shameless plug: Need a lander to carry your SEP down to the surface? Like a fine wine, SEP pairs excellently with Bluedog Design Bureau - which includes a stockalike version of the LEM lander!

    [1.2] ExperimentTracker

    ExperimentTracker Made by Derrey This mod lists all experiments and helps to deploy them fast and easy. How do I use the ExperimentTracker? This mod adds a button to the flight scene. When active, a GUI is shown which lists all science experiments that can be deployed. You can deploy an experiment by simply clicking on it. Finished experiments can also be reviewed (left click) and resetted (right click). When inactive, the GUI is not shown and the button indicates whether there are experiments (yellow) or not (red). A click on "Info" toggles a GUI which shows some informations about the current biome, etc. Mod compatibility This mod should be compatible with every science mod that uses the standard ModuleScienceExperiment interface or DMModuleScienceAnimate from DMagic. Tested compatibility: Universal Storage Orbital Science Where can I download the mod? You can download the mod here and follow the 'How to install' guide or let CKAN install it. The source code is available on GitHub. The mod is made available under the Apache License - 2.0. For KSP 1.1.3 download the mod here. How to install: Download the .zip file. Unpack the .zip file. Copy the /ExperimentTracker/ folder to your KSP installations GameData/ folder. Changelog:

  7. New, it's well forgotten old. I have not played a career in KSP much over a year, and having recently undertaken, I faced that a very useful mod by xEvilReeperx are outdated and has not been updated for a long time. I wrote to the author and he gave me permission to adapt it to the new version, and here it are. Sure, i need feedback about how it work from community. When is is it time for science? Who knows! The game provides no feedback when you've crossed a biome barrier, a new crew report is available or when you've forgotten to run a goo experiment. Wouldn't it be cool to stop guessing? (c) xEvilReeperx What it does: Features: Audio and visual cue when science is available Configurable science filters for experiments Configurable option to stop warp when an experiment becomes available science threshold to ignore low value reports Optional SCANsat integration Dependences: Toolbar (do not forget to do button visible ) Installation & Usage Download the plugin and extract in your KSP directory like any mod. Actual use in-game is simple. When the button is lit, at least one experiment onboard matches your criteria. If the flask is animating, then a new experiment just became available (animation will stop when you have viewed the new experiment list). There are lots of per-experiment settings to choose from. left-click - to open the list of currently available experiments, right-click - opens the options menu, SCANsat support Enable SCANsat integration in the additional options menu With this option enabled, you will only receive biome-associated alerts if you have mapped that portion of the planet's surface Non-biome specific alerts will still occur as normal Known Bugs: if you transmit science report(s) using a transmitter's action menu, the reports queued for it won't be taken into account until transmission is complete [not a bug] Available experiments and report values may suddenly change when going on EVA. This is because your Kerbal may be in a different "situation" -- for example, sitting on the pad might trigger an EVA alert for LaunchPad but you go on EVA and the alert stops. This is because the game considers the Kerbal to be "flying" while holding onto a ladder while in the air. source github DOWNLOAD SPACEDOCK DOWNLOAD CURSEFORGE
  8. Goal: a bit helping to select proper experiment for mission. This simple plugin adds additional info about science experiment to its information panel (RightMouseClick). Now You can find info about situation when experiment will work and its relations from biomes while constructing your vessel in VAB. Also it adds usage requirements and can trace multiple experiments definitions in one part. Works in VAB-SPH only. Observed partmodules can be configured using CFG. So, it can trace parts containing stock science module "ModuleScienceExperiment", additional infos will be collected from its EXPERIMENT_DEFINITION node. Example cfg with nodes for stock science parts, OLDD, StationScience and DMagic's science parts are enclosed. Seems like it can trace any handmaded sciencemodules with its own names from different mods, but only if it were inherited from stock ModuleScienceExperiment. source DOWNLOAD
  9. **Before I start, a little about me; I've played KSP for a long time, I can't remember exactly which version, and I got into it thanks to Robbaz' YouTube series. I've restarted several playthroughs and been a part time lurker on these forums, but now that's changing. With this career I've decided to become more active, particularly with the Mission Reports and general conversations, I might even take on a few challenges within my career. In my entire time with this game I haven't left Kerbin's SOI, but again, I'd like to change that. My mission reports may be inconsistent in their formatting and style, but one thing I'll try to keep throughout is a track of the money earned from each mission (space exploration is a business, after all), and the science earned from each mission. Without further ado, here is the first instalment, landing on the Mun.** Mission Report: Year One, Day 16. ** OPERATION MUNSTRIDER ** After the successes of the Space Program thus far, the Kerbin World-Firsts Record-Keeping Society has allocated funding for the next milestone; to land on the Mun.The recent flybys and sightseeing launches have piqued interest in the planet's closest natural satellite, and it's time we landed on it and returned safely. Mission Objectives: PRIMARY - Land 3 Kerbals on Mun's surface and return them to Kerbin safely. - Gather scientific data by performing every available experiment we have currently developed; Materials Bay, Mystery Goo, Barometer, Thermometer, Surface Samples, Crew Report and EVA Report. SECONDARY -Proof of concept and test run of a reusable lander, able to land on the surface and return to orbit capable of docking with another craft for refuelling. -Plant flag for FLOOYD Dynamic Research Labs. We've been allocated a 70,560 advance in funding to develop and construct the lander and launch vehicle. The launch vehicle and lander came in a a total of 54,353. *Mission Updates* - Launch went off without a hitch, and Bob, Bill and Val settled into an 85km orbit, before burning out towards Mun. - An uneventful transfer between Kerbin and Mun, tensions began growing as Mun grew bigger. - Orbital insertion burn to Mun was nominal, and the ship settled into a 20km orbit. - Landing Sequence began, targeting the western edge of the East Farside Crater. - Bill reported concerns regarding fuel levels, we ran the numbers and there was cause for concern. - Touchdown on Mun! - Bob took samples from the crater, performed an EVA report and planted the flag as per the mission objectives. Bill inspected the craft for damages and areas of concern. Val's mental state deteriorated, Bill's concerns over the fuel pushed her into a state of panic, she refused to leave the cockpit for fear of being stranded. However, she did manage to fill out a crew report of the situation. - Bob decided to go sightseeing, being a surfer in his spare time he decided to visit a wave-like formation at the edge of the crater. Flight Control was not impressed. He retrieved a surface sample and returned to the ship, spectacularly wiping out on the way, proving the resilience of Kerbalkind and the spacesuits. **CRITICAL MISSION UPDATE** Low fuel levels, insufficient for return. Develop refuelling drone to perform orbital rendezvous in Munar orbit. Kerbin World-Firsts Record-Keeping Society provided additional contract and funding to bring the mission home. PRIMARY OBJECTIVE - Rendezvous and dock in Munar orbit, then return to Kerbin. - Val managed to get the ship into a stable 8km orbit, Flight assured them that they had a solution for their fuel shortage, and that this was part of the secondary objective, and they could use this time to gather more data from orbit. - Refuelling drone launched into orbit with no issues, sitting at 90km before launching towards Mun. - Bob performed several EVA's in orbit, setting a new record. - Refuelling drone docked with Munstrider with no issues, a testament to the capabilities of our probe technology. - Refuelling drone undocked and launched itself into the surface of Mun. **END OF CRITICAL UPDATES** - Val brought the crew home, touching down on the deserts of Kerbin. *Mission Summary* Primary Objectives. Moderate Success. Further development of lander needed, fuel issues need solving before further Mun Landings. Science returns outstanding, can use returned info to develop technologies further. Secondary Objectives. Docking capabilities adequate. Current model is unfit for re-use, development required. Flag planted for FLOOYD Dynamic Research Labs. Space Program reputation increased, public opinion tracking at a record high, funding will be more readily available, providing we can continue to push, to innovate, and inspire. **Funding Breakdown** - Initial Contract - Kerbin World-Firsts Record-Keeping Society 70,560 - Advance 332,640 - Reward -54,353 - Cost --------------------------------------------- 348,847 - Total Earned -Additional Contracts -FLOOYD Dynamic Research Labs 69,000 - Advance 191,400 - Reward ------------------------------------------------- 260,400 - Total Earned 609,247 - Running Total -Kerbin World-Firsts Record-Keeping Society 124,992 - Advance 589,248 - Reward -24,985 - Cost ========================= 1,298,502 - Total Earned Official Images:
  10. Past the Haze main lobby Please Note: Due to the loss of the original image uploader website, and my failure to keep a backup image folder, many of the pictures on pages 2-3 are permanently lost. Introduction: Hi. Before the story starts, I'd like to speak for a little. I have... commitment issues, and have started several stories here, but never progressed far on any. I want this topic to be different from my other ventures, but if it goes dead, that'd be why. My intention is for this to be a series of probably-not-that-short stories using my current science mode game. The premise? I'm kinda making this up as I go along, but so far it involves a space program attempting to survive in a Kerbin previously hit by an unnamed series of disasters (AKA the installation of visual mods), and get to the bottom of the convoluted story of why the planets look so different. All the while, Kerbin itself might not be safe. Quality and enjoyment are nowhere near guaranteed, and there will be early installment weirdness, but I'll do my best to make something decent. Story will start on the next post, listed here is the table of contents, a current modlist, a (WORK IN PROGRESS) character list, and a (WORK IN PROGRESS) organisations list. Table of contents: Story 1: Night Rescue, Chapter 1: Exposition Much? Story 1, Chapter 2: Undeniably Majestic Story 1, Chapter 3: Buck Story 1, Chapter 4: Alone at Sea Story 1, Chapter 5: Kerbal in the Water Story 1, Chapter 6: Fishing Story 1, Chapter 7: Contact Story 1, Chapter 8: Return Story 2: Phoenix II Story 3: Network Story 4: Oculus Station, Chapter 1: Core Story 4, Chapter 2: Minor Hiccups Story 4, Chapter 3: Onboard Story 4, Chapter 4: Telescope Start!

  12. Orbital Survey Plus Recent Update Detailed Notes / Thoughts Introduction Does the insta-scanning capability of the M700 Survey Scanner keep you awake at night? Are you thirsty for more realism but uninterested in complex add-ons that ignore or replace the rest of the stock resource system or add lots of parts? You might be in luck! Orbital Survey Plus is a light-weight mod that provides you with a more realistic and intuitive way to perform surveys with the survey scanner while still using the rest of the stock resource system. Gone are the arbitrary inclination requirements and instant full-body witchcraft resource reveals! The M700 will now only reveal resource data for terrain it has passed over and scanned. How It Works After deploying the M700 Survey Scanner and pressing the "start survey" button, survey of the current body will begin. As long as altitude conditions are met (which are the same as stock behavior) the scan will progress, gathering resource information for the terrain under the vessel and draining electric charge. There are no other specific orbit requirements besides current altitude. As the scan progresses, survey data is accumulated, which can be transmitted back to the KSC. As soon as you transmit your first batch of survey data the stock resource overlay becomes unlocked. When you toggle the resource overlay, you will notice that regions that haven't been scanned and transmitted will be shrouded. As your vessel gathers more data as it passes over terrain, the resource overlay will become revealed for those regions after that data is transmitted. [Science] Not only does transmitting survey data back to the KSC reveal planetary overlays, it also yields science! [Biome Overlay] This mod adds a biome overlay toolbar button to go along with the stock resource overlay. The biome overlay will be shrouded in the same way for regions that haven't been scanned and transmitted by the survey scanner. [Background Scanning] Once you get your scanner going, feel free to leave it and launch more ships! Scans will progress in the background, so there's no need to stick around and time warp. [Settings] Many of the features of OSP can be tweaked or toggled through the KSP game settings menu. For example, if you're just here for the biome overlay, the advanced surveying feature can be disabled. Download Current Version - 2.3.6 for KSP 1.4.1 & 1.4.2 Spacedock | Curse *ModuleManager included and required Source code available here on Bitbucket. Pictures! Video! (Thanks KottabosGames!) Changelog License Known Bugs - At the highest time warp speed scan lines can start to zig-zag - Entering the map view can swap the biome overlay with the resource overlay sometimes I primarily built this mod for me, so I don't expect anything. But if you like it and you're the tipping type, feel free.

  14. I have a launch window for Eeloo coming up in about 120 in game days, and I am considering sending a mobile ground base all the way out there. The question is would it be worth it. I've noticed there are a few new biomes that I haven't observed yet, and the dwarf's terrain is flat enough to make long range drives worth it, but the distance from Kerbol makes solar power useless. So to power the electric wheels I'd need either a metric f*ckton of NUK's and fuel cells, or need to experiment with alternative propulsion methods. As I'm typing this I just thought of using NERV's to push it a long the ground, like I do with et engines on my boat bases. So anyway, does anyone think its worth it to send a mobile base out there? I'm probably going to do it. I like the idea of a nuclear rocket propelled ground vehicle. That makes me smile.
  15. Kerbal Science Innovation Creat 30/06/2017 This is a science mod which use the science of today and the science of the future, for the moment it is in Progress.(create by a french ) Version : 1.8.1 Change log : Download From : CKAN Author : @Ourshinigami Scorpius Space is enjoy to show you those part ! Scorpius Space Science Laboratory AtomicFountain (Caesium 133) Imgur : Atomic fountain(Caesium 133) Description : An atomic fountain is a cloud of atoms that is tossed upwards by lasers in the Earth's gravitational field. If it were visible, it would resemble the water in a fountain. While weightless in the toss, the atoms are measured to set the frequency of an atomic clock. Dark matter collector Imgur : Dark Matter Collector Description : This is a dark matter collector. Dark matter sensor Imgur : Dark matter sensor Description : Dark matter has never been directly observed; however its existence would explain a number of otherwise puzzling astronomical observations. The name refers to the fact that it does not emit or interact with electromagnetic radiation, such as light, and is thus invisible to the entire electromagnetic spectrum. Although dark matter has not been directly observed, its existence and properties are inferred from its gravitational effects such as the motions of visible matter, gravitational lensing, its influence on the universe's large-scale structure, on galaxies, and its effects on the cosmic microwave background. Polaris-Ray X imgur : Polaris-Ray X description : X-ray fluorescence spectrometry is a chemical analysis technique using a physical property of matter, X-ray fluorescence. When material is bombarded with x-rays, the material re-emits energy under Forms, inter alia, X-rays; This is X-ray fluorescence or X-ray secondary emission. The spectrum of the X-rays emitted by the material is characteristic of the composition of the sample, by analyzing this spectrum, one can deduce the elementary composition, Ie the mass concentrations of elements.

  16. Here we are with Gamelinx's planet pack installed. This story will carry over from the Advancing Through Hardships, but this is significantly more orientated towards the actual missions. The beginning will seem brief because I can't wait to start exploring! I have only glanced at the solar system and I am so excited! The game will be played Kerbin sized but maybe in another series I will do 2.5x. Let's us dive into the story. If you want I will add the mod list, but it will take somebody asking for it specifically. Mod list: Here are the list of chapters, each one with the chapter right below the title. I hope this is a convenience instead of a hindrance. Chapter 1: A New Beginning Chapter 2: A New Initiative Chapter 3: A Mun of a Mun Chapter 4: A Golish Scene Chapter 5: A Gollogical Expedition Chapter 6: "We're in Hell Jeb, Everyone is." Chapter 7: A Little Too Much Like Mint Ice Cream Chapter 8: Junior Von Kerman Chapter 9: Olei
  17. I feel that the tech tree that is currently in the game seems a little backwards? I think you should be sending small probes into space before sending people. A further addition to this may be aircraft before some of that, than go to probes/rovers than manned and probably back to supersonic/advanced spaceflight. Possibly keeping the other tech tree and having the difficulty the game is set on define what kind of tech tree it uses.
  18. Hello fellow kerbals. Let's talk about science mode ! I - The Issue I might be some kind of a masochistic player but I can't help to think that even with a 10 % science rewards settings, unlocking the tech tree feels wrong. In my experience, for a 10 % setting, it's : 1) Unnecessarily grindy at the very beginning 2) Somewhat normal around moon and minmus if you travel a bit through biomes with like 2 moon missions and 2 minmus missions 3) Still way to fast to unlock once you can get into other planets orbits 4) Rendered completely pointless by science lab, which stays OP even at 10 %. I mean, even if I just put science stations here and there and don't speed up time directly, any trip to Jool while they are running in the background will speed up that time anyway and grind hard. I won't say much about career mode as I feel it's quite the same issue, science and money feeling like two separates things even with strategies running, plus I tend to prefer science mode at the moment. My computer lags with too much pieces, so I actually build low-price rockets anyway :$ II - The Idea As I came across a simple achievement mod found on CKAN (this one, here) I thought "hey, it would be pretty cool if instead of science, tech tree was unlocked through objectives / missions / achievements of some kind !" It could look like this for instance : Launch a Vessel --> Land a Vessel / Splash-land a Vessel --> Get Over Kerbin Atmosphere --> Land at North / South Pole --> Get to Orbit --> SOI Moon or Minmus --> Orbit M or Mm --> SOI Sun --> Land M or Mm --> SOI Duna or Eve --> etc... That would require some kind of thinking as for the order, but it would be fun to play in my opinion. Plus, as tech tree columns grow in size, your possibilities tends to inscrease as well : orbiting Duna or Jool makes little difference, so the same mission in multiple planets could fill up tech branches (same for Moon or Minmus actually). As science parts would be rendered useless, some missions could call for them, i.e. "do an atmospheric scan landed of EVE" or something. What do you think, is that cool and doable as a mod ? (Or does it exist already, making me look very dumb ?) I know that one could challenge himself and not rely on a game mechanic, but I feel like a progressive mode like science is pointless if you have to moderate yourself playing it. I mean, you might as well go for the sandbox mode if you have to make your own challenges anyway. It would also be newbie-freindly I think, as it would give the player objectives that are assured to be doable, which is very good for motivation and understanding (i.e. seeing Minmus before Moon or at the same level could bring some kind of questions, leading to an illumination when player understands why / do the mission).
  19. Hey, I've been playing for about 2 weeks now, and have had a lot of fun! But that's besides the point. I recently had a sorta good attempt to land on Eve, and crashed my rover, but still got there in tact, and flipped over, but I don't mind. I want to know if there is any way to send the info from my Rover, like temperature, to a lab on my IKK (ISS, but called International Kerbal Kraft lol), instead of straight back to Kerbin. I don't want to transmit it to Kerbin, but instead to a sattelite, but NOT to Kerbin. The IKK has a Mobile Processor lab on it and I want to get extra science from the data on the lab....any one know how??? Thanks it advanced, PewPewTrash
  20. Hey There Does anybody know something about a bug in the science rewards calculation. I'm in the beginning of the game and out of nowhere I get ten thousands of science points and so far i didnt even reach the mun. Is there a way to get my old science points back or do i have to start a new game, because it is the third time that this happens. This time I did the "Escape the atmosphere!" mission, were above 70,000 m, but the goal was unchecked and it is still, but got 10885 science points. Another time I did the "fly with a vessel" mission and got 33k.
  21. Do you have a theory that you just want to let the world know about? Do you have ideas about the latest discoveries in astronomy, astrophysics, and cosmology? There aren't really many places to do this stuff on the forums, so here's a thread that includes it all. Users are free to post their theories (try to make them short), comment on others', and express their ideas/concerns about recent science news. Theories about the Kerbol system and planets from mods are also allowed, because what's a KSP Forum Thread without KSP? To give you guys some ideas of what theories are allowed, here's a list of topics: Atomic and subatomic physics. Evolution of solar systems. Early moments of the Universe. Exoplanets and exomoons. Dark matter and energy. Any theory about the stock KSP planets and moons. Realism of Kerbal Space Program. The four fundamental forces: Gravity, Electromagnetism, Strong Nuclear, and Weak Nuclear. Cosmic structures and clusters (open clusters, galaxies, nebulae, etc.). Our home galaxy! Dwarf planets and the Kuiper Belt. Planet 9/X/"Fatty" The evolution of the Universe. Alternate realities. Some other stuff. Go ahead an post your best theories! I probably will post some here, too, and edit the list of topics.
  22. Science - Full reward! READY FOR 1.4.X!!! What it does: Some experiments require you to do them multiple times at the same location to max out your science gain. If you, like me, don't want to do it this way this mod is for you. It just makes you get the 100% science-reward the first time you do the experiment. But only if you recover it. This mod does not get rid of the penalty for transmitting data, it only affects the execution of an experiment. Here is what it does "in action"; Fresh game, first time on the launchpad, full green bar: Needs: Modulemanager Download/Source: Download from Spacedock Source on Github Thanks to @Malah and the guys from the ckan IRC it is now in the repository, thanks alot. Changelog: -Cleaned up post -Ready for Ksp 1.4.X and ongoing I guess -Ready for KSP 1.3.1, Mod Version is now 3.0, better late than never -Ready for KSP 1.2, Mod Version is now 2.1 -Added download for "kickstart.cfg" -Removed "unlock" option and made it a seperate .cfg + roverwheels
  23. hi all, Here is the challenge I propose : Start a new stock career mode (medium difficulty or higher) and complete the technology tree the fastest possible. Your score is the game-time when tech tree is completed. I talk about game-time and not about the real time you spent in the game. This may limit the use of time warp and favor multiple concomitant flights. most of mods are vailable, except those modifying physics and science gain What do you think ?
  24. As mentioned here: There are many problems with career mode at the moment. I decided to open a new thread since the subject is more complex than just too much science funds. From Kerbin to Mun Orbit: - recieved 180.000.000 funds - recieved 19.000 science - did not recieve any Kerbal XP (still only 2 = orbit Kerbin) - did not achieve any milestones Additional problems: - Missions that require changing zones (Kerbin to Kerbin suborbit e.g.) do not complete randomly. Sometimes they do. - Randomly getting huge amounts of science / funds for absolutely no reason - very low FPS due to NullReferenceException-error overload Saving and loading stops funds and science from being added. But doesnt change broken missions, milestones or Kerbal XP, doesnt remove science and funds either. Problem seems to be a code typo: [EXC 20:15:06.212] NullReferenceException KSP.UI.UIList`1[KSP.UI.UIListItem].Refresh () KSP.UI.UIList`1[KSP.UI.UIListItem].InsertItem (KSP.UI.UIListData`1 item, Int32 index, Boolean forceZ, Boolean worldPositionStays) KSP.UI.UIList.InsertItem (KSP.UI.UIListItem item, Int32 index, Boolean forceZ, Boolean worldPositionStays) KSP.UI.Screens.MessageSystem.AddMessageInternal (KSP.UI.Screens.Message message, Boolean playAnim, Boolean queue) KSP.UI.Screens.MessageSystem.AddMessage (KSP.UI.Screens.Message message, Boolean animate) ProgressNode.AddOrAppendWorldFirstMessage (System.String title, System.String body) ProgressNode.AwardProgress (System.String description, Single funds, Single science, Single reputation, .CelestialBody body) ProgressNode.AwardProgressInterval (System.String description, Int32 currentInterval, Int32 totalIntervals, ProgressType progress, .CelestialBody body) KSPAchievements.RecordsSpeed.iterateVessels (.Vessel v) ProgressTree.IterateVessels (.Vessel v) ProgressTracking.Update () This just spams the log, as expected with NRE's. Will there be a fix any time soon? PS: Checked with debug: Even when I complete a quest through the cheat console it throws an NRE. PS2: Found out why Kerbals where stuck not leveling up. Here is why: These tags are added to the kerbals in the savefile. On removal Kerbal XP is working again. So if you (fellow players) go to the savefile and remove these lines for all Kerbals that have their XP stuck, it will work again afterwards and they will update accordingly.

  25. Hi all, I'm having trouble receiving science from several probes I've launched into solar and lunar orbits. When I try to transmit data from Mystery Goo or Materials Bay experiments, as well as several science modules from the DMagic science mod, the antenna(e) on the spacecraft will run through the typical transmission process - the percentage counter will run up and electric charge will drain as usual - but once the transmission is "Done!", nothing happens. For the expendable experiments, they behave as if the data was successfully removed and transmitted (they become inoperable), but the space center never receives science rewards for these transmissions. This is extremely frustrating since the entire point of these probe missions is to gather enough science to later launch a manned mission where I will be able to recover the full science reward anyway. The only experiments that successfully transmit any data are the Temperature Scan, Atmospheric Pressure Scan, and Geiger Counter, all of which work exactly as intended. I have checked that these spacecraft have electrical power available, made sure they are within transmission range, re-ran the experiment and data transmission process after restarting the game and my computer, tried with the [x] Science! mod removed, tried to relaunch the spacecraft, and probably some other stuff I can't remember. Nothing seems to help the problem. Nothing even seems out of place aside from the missing science credit. Does anyone have any experience with a problem like this, or any idea what might be the problem? If you want any more specific information about the situation, just ask. Thanks in advance!
