[1.12.x] USI Life Support

Any issues so far folks?

Rookie question: How do I go about activating the mod? I.e, I've installed the mod and can see the parts and the "life support status" screen, but it's blank -- no vessels show up. Kerbals aren't consuming food either. Is there a toggle/options/settings to make the mod active, and if so, where can I find it? (I had been using Blizzy's Toolbar which isn't working for me in 1.0, not sure how else to get to mod options.). Edit: this includes non-orange kerbals.

Thank you

Are you using Orange suited kerbals? They don't consume resources.

Kottabosgames did a spot light on this mod, and couldn't seem to get mulch to convert to organics, was he doing something wrong? because that's how I thought it worked too, I haven't gotten far enough in my career on 1.0 to make use of these parts yet, but I'd like to know for when I do.

Orange suited Kerbals (Jeb, Bill, Bob, and Val) are immune to the ill effects of life support. They will still consume supplies if given, but do not leave the job, because they are just that awesome. This always gives a player (especially a new one) an 'out' to test out a manned mission before actually committing your other kerbals, etc. to a horrible fate of snack deprivation.

Anyway to make them like the other kerbals or do I have to just kill them? I don't want super kerbals.

I have very evil idea about interaction with mod Connected Living Space if it's installed. Should be fully optional and maybe even disabled by default.

Thing is: to make kerbals use only supplies they can access directly or through connected living space or from parts attached to living space but not further.

This could and will impact crewed ship designs dramatically - no more "slap supply container anywhere and be set" as parts accessibility should be considered or whole expedition may die from starvation while having full yearly supply next door inaccessible due to poor engineering.

I would like to second this motion!

Silly question. What version of KSP?

Only issue I've seen is the one I posted about last night where USI-LS sets off the launch escape system on the Taurus HCV (similar to the conflict that EPL used to have).

I have an idea on that, may need to fiddle with something.

Not at this time.

Would need some context, since there are no built in converters other than the ones that come with MKS

He was using a pioneer module and an inflatable storage module. attached to a cupola with a supply canister.

I'm also having the issue with a blank life support status window.

KSP version 1.0.0.830 from Steam. Also modded with Engineer 1.0.16.3.

Currently have a gray suit kerbal in orbit, but still nothing in the window.

Edit: They also don't seem to eat any supplies offered.

No problems yet, but I do have a few questions:

1) The OP says "The old C3 (now renamed to the Pioneer Module) will have a basic mulcher and greenhouse and can do recycling at 50% efficiency for up to four Kerbals," whereas the Pioneer Module's in-game description mentions "a modest greenhouse (25% efficiency) that can help replenish the initial supplies of your expedition." Which is correct, 50% or 25%?

2) What are the actual supply consumption and mulch production rates per Kerbal? E.g., 0.0001 units/second? 0.00005?

3) I noticed that the Pioneer module does not have any mulch storage. Is mulch storage unnecessary for the mulcher to function properly?

4) You mentioned that the Mk-IV modules will have different efficiencies for surface vs off-world. How is this accomplished, in regard to config code for the ModuleResourceConverter?

I'm having the exact same issue on Mac OS. With a clean install of KSP, the only mod I have running is USI-LS. The life support window is blank in both sandbox and career modes. I've tried both orange and grey suits. No resources are being used.

Furthermore, with a simple command pod in orbit, no resources whatsoever are consumed. Electricity remains constant, as do supplies. Even when orbiting around the dark side of keratin, no electricity is consumed or lost.

I also have this problem. I have the parts, but nothing shows up on the window ( with the little green cube). I shot a kerbal into orbit just to see the mechanic and he has been there for 50 days now and nothing. He is a regular gray suit. I have KSP 1.0 with only KER and this installed. does it only work in career mode?
