I would have posted this to the Github, but there is no Issues section as far as I can tell, and I'm not experienced enough with Github to figure out how to post an issue in that situation, if it's even possible. I'm getting the bug where the simulator caps out at 1 Year, 407 Days, 1 Hour, 27 Minutes, and 35.38 Seconds, no matter how many additional Snacks I add to the vessel- in the VAB and in space. Even below this threshold, adding a part with a Soil recycler(not an Ore processor, I know that's not considered) doesn't seem to affect the duration either, and nor does the level of my Engineers or even if one is present at all. It's been reported multiple times in this thread over the past three or so years, and as of yet I haven't been able to find an answer as to why this is happening, a solution for the problem, or even any acknowledgement(to my knowledge) that the issue exists. I thought it might be because the solution is obvious, or it's somehow intended functionality, but the image on the OP clearly shows the simulator predicting further than this, so that can't be it. So therefore, I was scientific about this and made sure to make the most comprehensive, by-the-book bug report possible! I've just confirmed that this occurs on a 100% fresh stock 1.12.3 install, after installing ONLY Snacks and Module Manager. Steps to reproduce: Open KSP 22.214.171.12473 with Snacks 1.27.5 and Module Manager 4.2.1 installed. Create a new Sandbox save file named "Test". Enter the save and select the Mk1 Pod, ensuring that there is 1 Kerbal inside, then attach the S-4500 Snack Tin to the top and play with the values. Past exactly 2449 Snacks(in the 2-4500 Snack Tin), the Snacks simulator will stop calculating durations higher than 1 Year, 407 Days, 1 Hour, 27 Minutes, and 35.38 Seconds exactly. Adding a Hitchhiker part to the craft does not change the simulated duration according to its Soil recycler, even if the Snacks in both the Hitchhiker and the S-4500 Snack Tin are drained. Player.log: https://www.mediafire.com/file/7rc9wznamrr1fvl/Player.log/file Normally I'd have used Pastebin, but this Player.log is 1.108 Mb, and you need a paid account on Pastebin to post anything larger than half that size. Posting because I discovered the cause of this 'bug'. I haven't seen this described ANYWHERE, but in GameData/WildBlueIndustries/Snacks, there's a SimulatorSettings.cfg file. Again, there appears to be no documentation as to what these settings do as far as I can tell, but changing the maxSimulatorCycles value changes the maximum time duration that can be simulated. The default value of 5000 is why the simulator stops simming past 1 Year, 407 Days, 1 Hour, 27 Minutes, and 35.38 Seconds. So if you want it to simulate further(why the Kraken wouldn't you), you need to increase this value. I have no idea why 5000 is the default; as this value ensures that the simulator will only be useful for calculating the duration of missions within Kerbin's SOI, and you're never gonna need more than, like, a couple months of snacks for that unless you plan on staying. The real big use of the simulator would come in for missions past Kerbin, but by default it cannot be used for this... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
