Possible bug? All three VASIMR engines are showing zero delta-V in Kerbal Engineer, both Argon and Xenon modes. KSP 1.3, NFP 0.9.0. The engines fire up in both modes with no issue.

I am seeing this on my Mac, but not on my PC, but I think it may be a bug with KER. Removing the VariableIspEngine module does not improve things, and other MultiModeEngines don't seem to show DV, like the KA bimodals and even the stock multimodal atmospheric engines. Can I request you check the Rapier in your system, for example?

@Nertea What I meant was using the Orion/ATV solar panels in my mod.

Indeed, I need to know a bit more about what you intend.

I'm on a Mac as well. Just checked a Rapier, KER is working normally in both modes.

Much detective work: 

 

Long story short - Squad bug related to localization, I will provide a band-aid fix (remove the nicer localization names), but it will still be broken in non-english localizations and really Squad has to fix this one.

Hello @Nertea, I have spotted a tiny typo in Near Future Propulsion, the title for the lithium tank lithium-25-3 is #LOC_NFPropulsion_lithium-25-2_title (LFT-A20 Lithium Tank), where it should have been A10.

Found I could not launch something I was using prior to updating. I think I found the issue, but will only use if as a work around for the moment.

Guess who was using a mk3-9 ?

BTW love your work. Thank you for doing it and for still keep on doing it.

Hey, I started getting some exceptions from DynamicBatteryStorage it looks like. I'm not showing any obvious symptoms in-game, although my asteroid ore drills aren't turning on correctly (seems reasonably unrelated). It's a ship saved in 1.2.2 as well, which is probably causing issues. Thought I'd post it here just in case though.

Edit: my drills aren't turning on because the asteroid has been mined out, so ignore that part. mega-derp.

Hey, that took longer than I thought for the first issue to come up!

Okay so... Hmm... looks like the killer event is an undocking. Can you get me screenshots of the ship and the AsteroidBase you have?

Snapped a few shots. Hopefully they are helpful. It's an asteroid miner morphed into a permanent base, basically. The issues arose when I docked the hab module (the one with all the hitch hikers and itinerant). I also undocked the claw and re-grabbed in an attempt to make my drills work again before I realized the asteroid had no more ore left. I also undocked and re-docked the hab module once to rotate it. All the parts are either stock, USI Life Support, Near Future, or DMagic's EVA struts.

Also, a list of mods I'm running, in case that is helpful as well:

Community Tech Tree
Community Resource Pack
Community Category Kit
Environmental Visual Enhancements
EVA Struts
EVA Resource Transfer
Flexible Docking Ports
Kerbal Engineer
NavBall Docking Alignment Indicator
Near Future Electrical
Near Future Propulsion
Near Future Solar
Near Future Spacecraft

Planetary Bases
Precise Maneuver
Kerbal Alarm Clock
USI Life Support

@Wheffle Thanks for the well structured bug report and assistance. I think as a result I found the bug, which looks like it's to do with the parsing of electricity production on resource converters. If you're still having the bug (ie, you can go ingame and easily reproduce it), I'd greatly appreciate if you could test a new dll file out for me to check I've resolved it.

Undocking seems to produce an exception every time. I'd be happy to do some testing.

There's an odd folder in the NFE package called 'versioning' that only has a .version file for DynamicBatteryStorage.

I just dropped that file into the DynamicBatteryStorage folder.

Ah damnnit. That's going to affect everything I just deployed. :'(

Propulsion and Solar appear fine - I can find the .version file for them, and they've apparently got the right versions.  It's just Electrical that was weird.

I just updated all the near future packs, and was planning on building a new pack, but any mod I run in addition to the near future pack crashes on load up. is there a reason for this?
