mozartbeatle Posted November 6, 2021 Share Posted November 6, 2021 I have the same, or similar enough problem to @TaintedLion. I was previously able to get many un-upgraded (no J2s, no 1973 H1's) Saturn 1b's into low orbit on JNSQ. However, since the SLA nose cones were added it has been impossible even with the strictest adherence to the wiki guide. Just to confirm, I spent the last hour or two testing it in a fresh install with just BDB, JNSQ, and Mechjeb. My guess (acknowledging I know very little about how a lot of this works in the back end) is that the nose cone is affecting the drag characteristics whether or not it is activated. I was able to restore previous functionality by changing a word in the SLA config files part switch module, switching "affectDragCubes=True" to "False". Since I dont make much use of the nose cone so I've just been using that as a fix. I don't know anything though, so I might be super wrong about the source of the issue. Something else I also was able to confirm from my previous comment in the fresh install, is that the heatshield currently doesn't do much to prevent the Apollo crew cabin from heating. It can be difficult to prevent it from exploding at Mun return velocity. Also unrelated and sorta random but the Kh-7 service module doesn't have a waterfall plume.
