Jeb is tired today, but you need him for a long trip on plane to the other side of the planet without refueling...let's just use the fully electrical plane ! ;)

No because it doesn't "burn" any fuel that's why I didn't do it, it's just a turbine compressing air, but not enough to make it explode or be "red" that's why electrical engines have a poor thrust ;)

Ah, but the blue emissives used by ion engines in the hotrockets configs look SO COOL!

You could always go on with a small animation of "white stuff" coming out of the engines, you know, the compressed air in the cold temperatures of the heights

Okey, I'll try to add it tonight :)

Done, do you should have the smoke effect while using the engine, don't you ?

Noticed in the SPH the thrust is shown as NaN and power consumption as infinite

I'll fix that, it'll be released with the particles, maybe tomorrow (the emissive section of the engine is driving me a bit crazy :P )

EDIT: here's what I've got in SPH, are you sure about it ? can I have a screenshot ? is someone else having the same issues ?

Even More Picks <---- Early Morning No Sun (conclusion since the engines uses infinity electricity it used up the sun :P)

Nice ! it's bugging in 1.0.2 but not in 1.0

And if you read well, you'll read that the game is only compatible with 1.0.

I'm gonna start on the compatibility for 1.0.2 right now.

Thanks for the feedback :)

EDIT : Found the problem ;) gimme a sec to correct it

folder structure in the zip with the update seems a bit off. Have to make a folder under GameData to add the contents of the zip to rather then straight copy. Could make it difficult for some users will lower folder structure experience.
