It serves little purpose on 64-bit, since the address space is more than large enough for any mod set. It's basically writing your own swap algorithm which is rarely a good idea.

And yet it gives a performance boost. Especially when 2 large craft enter each others physics range.

Curious. How did you measure it?

easy, before ksp crashed when i tried to complete the build of a dsev at my station when using Dark Multiplayer and when not using DMP the game became so slow i could hardly do anything anymore. With DTL it takes a pause while loading textures, then just continues as before. hardly any speed loss. i call that a major improvement.

It appears to be the way the image is saved. I popped them into photoshop and put the desired texture in over the working one then saved again, and it works. It appears the ones do not work are not on the background layer they are floating so there's an alpha layer in the file.

So @helaeon, how did you manage to sort out this problem, since I also seem to have this problem, I tried recreating what you did and still got the default EVA texture helmet, could you possibly explain it in more detail what you did to solve the problem?

Blurry parachutes.

Blurry items in VAB/SPH. (However, when I click on it, it returns to normal)

Items in vab have to be blurry... that is how this mod works. It shrinks the textures until they are needed :)

I'll have to look into the parachutes though. Is that a mod using them? Do you have any mods that use/add parachutes?

I opened the PNG version of the helmet texture in Photoshop and used "Flatten Image", then saved the file again. Then the file will work. You should see a little padlock by a layer called "background" when you do this. You'll see all the other suit textures are already the same way. You may then use DDS4KSP or another way of converting to DDS if you wish and it will also be fine. The NRM file had the same issue so after flattening it, that also loaded correctly.
I don't have the tools installed on my computer at the moment to directly open DDS files in Photoshop but I imagine it is the same issue and same procedure to fix it.

Alright, il follow your instructions and see if they worked. It works

EDIT: It works wonderfully, this fixes the problem, thanks @helaeon

Should i setup KSP on Full Res textures or would Half Res be fine?

I'm running about 60 Mods altogether.

The number of mods matters much less than how big they are. B9 Aerospace has more memory footprint than every partless mod out there put together. [1]

I would start at full resolution and use GCmonitor to see if memory usage gets into the danger zone.

[1] This assertion made without testing, but it seems likely.

Today I gave it a try, hoping to play again with full res textures, but encountered a performance issue while in the VAB.

Without DTL (dx9), the game is fluid, I get above 80fps in the VAB

With DTL (dx9), the game stutter (debug say it's around 30-35fps stable, but stutter as if it was running below the 24fps mark) which make it really hard to select anything in the part selection screen, let alone move it around.

same is happening with OpenGL

BUT When I'm using DTL with DX11, I get to the 80+fps mark again. (Probably a Windows 10 thing doing better with DX11 than with DX9/OpenGL?)

I'm playing the game minimally modded :

Toolbar, DistantObject, Haystack, KAS, KIS, KER, KJR, PlanetShine, CriticalTempGauge, ScienceAlert, StageRecovery, TACFuelBalancer, KerbalAlarmClock, WindowTransferPlanner

Sorry if the issue has been adressed already, I went two page back, but was too lazy to browse through the whole thing :P

my latest dxdiag https://www.dropbox.com/s/mn5mb5m04zspxxl/DxDiag.txt?dl=0

Thats... Odd... There shouldn't be any changes that would be graphics runtime conditional. At least not between this and the last version. Do you have the KSP log file? if it is slowing down like that, I usually blame log spam.

Hmm, in fact it was me being overly oblivious, it seem that the mod is not the cause. Even without, I still get really bad performances in the VAB when using Dx9 (not always the case, that is weird) and OpenGL (windows 10 user?)

I still link those logs as you may have more insight than me on the subject

So yeah, it was my game installation at fault, too many errors popping and slowing the game due to conflicts it caused. oddly enough, the game was running "fine" when using dx11. (definitly, more than 150% performance improvement with dx11 than dx9/opengl, when i'm having 25fps with dx9/opengl in the vab, I get 90fps with dx11! But sadly on the launchpad, performances are the same)

Thought I'd give this mod a try and see if it might let me play for more then a couple scene changes before a crash.  Unfortunately, the game won't finish loading.  It doesn't crash so much as stops progressing during load up.  I've got about 60 mods on here but the one where the problem seems to be occurring is ProceduralParts.  Specifically, it looks as though DTL may be having an issue with the "proceduralTankOre".  I can post complete log files if needed, but below are the final lines from output_log.txt and ksp.log:

Those errors occur in PP with or without DTL. Did you try loading multiple times? I assume you can load/run this KSP install without DTL? Is that the latest version of PP/DTL?

Bug with SSTU

If I had to guess, I'd say the creator is doing something funky/unusual in the creation of their parts. I'd have to look into this.

Actually, I think this was caused by the recent updates to RealFuels and SolverEngines.  The latest RealFuels that ended up on CKAN has a misconfigured file that the author fixed, but as far as I was able to tell it didn't propegate to CKAN. I ended up reinstalling both files from ckan (to satisfy RealismOverhaul dependencies), then overwriting them with the downloads from the respective mod pages.
