  1. Slowest Aircraft

    Slowest Aircraft Challenge The era of Jeb flying supersonic spaceplanes is in its prime, but the new generation of pilots are a little less, well thrill seeking. Your challenge is to design the slowest possible aircraft, without leaving the atmosphere, and maintaining this speed for at least 30 seconds, and be able to land! Rules: Remain below 70,000 m Sustain flight for 30 seconds to qualify No rocket engines Stock parts only No autopilots Engines must be running at full speed during 30 second testing, and have a stable-ish speed. Must provide video proof of feat, launching from ksp, to landing (OBS Studio is free) Must be decently controllable Must have a prograde at horizon No Hovering Scoring: Lowest speed during 30 second testing multiplied by average altitude during 30 second testing Lowest score wins Bonus scores are divided by 2 Bonus: Preform at eve! Must fly to eve from Kerbin(rocket engines are allowed during transfer)
  2. I have 89 mods, and it takes 20 minutes to load the game. It sometimes crashes once I reach the end. I've wasted lots of time loading, and I have active texture management. Please help and tell me how you make ksp load faster
  3. Slow KSP

    I need help because ksp is very slow. I made the setting minimum but I am still getting a lot of lag please help.

  4. Hello, I need help. AVC shows that I have 104 mods installed and it load forever, but when I had about 80 mods it loads in 20 minutes, now it is not in half way to load in 40 minutes. (If there are grammar mistakes, sorry, I don't use English often.)
  5. Hi, I had the following issue: I have a very enormous parts-list. I like the whole "kid in the candy-store" approach, so I have n+1 mods installed. Where n is about twice the number of mods a reasonable person would have. My "GameData" folder, not counting the "Squad" subfolder, is about 4 Gigabytes. Yes. Don't do that. Consequently, my parts list stretches pretty much all the way to Minmus and back. To find something specific, the search-box presents itself. I even use it with QuickSearch. However. The very first letter I enter, KSP would try to instantly show me all the parts where that letter occurs. While it's doing that, I couldn't enter the next letter of my search term. Searching could take a minute. Literally a minute, and actually a minute, too. As it dug its way through my parts list, letter by letter, each time, KSP would be unresponsive until the results were ready to show. I dreaded using the search, just scrolling through some category was often quicker. Not always a working substitute for searching, though. Trying to start the search term with an unlikely letter-combination, yz or something, only lets me enter my search-term in full and in peace once it's done looking for the first letter. This problem no-longer irks me. I'm sure I've just missed some setting for not having the search run off with the first letter. If somebody could tell me where that is in the settings, please do tell me, I couldn't find it. But as I said, it's no longer so bad. The search still runs off with the first letter. But it's not getting stuck anymore. I can enter a whole search term, the search is quick and responsive and lovely. It went a little slow again, so I repeated what I suspected had been the fix and, yap, it worked. Just start KSP clean, same install, but without mods. Then shut it down, and start once more with the mods. Step by step, for anyone unsure what I mean: Put the mods where the game won't see them. I just rename "GameData" to some piece of fruit. Create a new folder, name it "GameData", without the ", obviously. Copy the "Squad" subfolder from the bulging bag of fruit to the new "GameData" folder. Start the game. Don't go make coffee or whatever you usually do when your heavily modded KSP install fires up. This time, it will be lightning fast. When the main-menu has come up, just click "Quit". Get rid of the new "GameData" folder you created earlier. Rename or Delete. Just make sure that the "Squad" subfolder is also still with the fruit. Rename the fruit back to "GameData", so that it looks like before. Now you go make some coffee, or do the laundry, while KSP starts up. enjoy fast and responsive search of the parts-list! I do think I need at least one "answer" to mark this as answered, no?
  6. Has anyone taken a shot at a "profiling" mod for KSP to help track down slow or even buggy mods? I'm thinking one might measure total time spent in functions owned by each mod (particularly during scene changes), and even intercept exceptions out of them to roughly track each mod's peak error rate. I know this is a fairly advanced topic, but considering some of the crazy stuff other mods here have achieved (e.g. AssemblyReloader) I'm wondering if it's feasible and/or if anyone's tried. And I'm thinking there must be some profiling scaffolding built into mono (to avoid having to go and manually hook each function). Also what existing tools do you use to track this stuff down? (e.g. Are there mono tools that would help?)
  7. hai all, want a challenge that is a challenge?? here it is. :DDDD this challenge is about the slowest airspeed and the longest flight time you can achieve (suggested by @Cunjo Carl)whilst in the air. RULES: no mods other than mechjeb and pilot's assistant. no cheats or editing physics. stock parts only. entry closes on 1st of september. no choppers or vertical takeoff planes allowed. good luck. BADGE COMING SOON.... LEADERBOARD 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
  8. slowest plane

    create a plane that can fly, completely fly, the slowest possible plane show the highest speed in a crash log picture. rules are no tweakscale, size doesnt matter, thats not what she said, no vtol and no mods/plugins, no downwards thrusters or forward thrusters
  9. Dear devs and community, I have played many hours of KSP without problems, but now the loading time takes forever. I have a decent PC ( i7-4790K and GTX 770 ) and no other network adapters like the other had with the same problem. I tried uninstalling all mods, verifying game cache, clean install on both HDD and SSD (30 and 15 mins respectively), but as you can see 15 minutes loading running from an SSD on a semi-high end PC is quite long. The game does run fine after that, but does anyone have advice for this? It's rather annoying :/ Thanks in advance! ThePyCoder
  10. Version: 1.0.5 non-Steam 32bit OS: Windows 10 64 bit Hi everyone, I had KSP for a long time and I just started using it again, on a gaming PC. I started to build a multi-purpose station that consisted of more than 400 parts. The game performance was horrible. I was getting 1fps per second according to the performance menu. It was incredibly painful having 1fps. It made docking pretty much impossible. I don't know about you, but 1fps makes me dizzy when watching the screen. Anyways, I looked at task manager and KSP was only using 30% of my CPU and 1.7GB RAM! Overall, only 35% of CPU was being used on my computer and 69% RAM. I just don't get it. Why is it lagging so much? It is hardly utilizing my new gaming PC's resource at all. I have other simulation softwares and they work fine. For example, Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Prepar3D run fine for me. For any of you who don't know, those 2 simulation software are the ultimate PC killer. My computer can run it around 20fps. However with KSP I only get 1fps with 65% CPU and 31% RAM unused. This must mean KSP is hardly using my PC's resources well at all. What is wrong here? I really want to build interstellar ships and big space stations but KSP is really limiting my ceativity. The computer bascially has no problems coping at all. However, KSP starts to lag after 400+ parts, and this is just getting annoying- it takes the fun away and it wastes a lot of time. Any help will be appreciated.
